The company managed to reduce its operating cost and managed to obtain Raw materials for cheap. The operating expense has also been decreasing over the past 1 year.

Decreasing Operating Expenses

 On the day of the result, the market moved sideways due to split opinion and sentiment regarding the stock. Which was later followed by a 3.2% decline at the close which could have been because of reduced profit as compared to last quarter. There is a certain optimism in the market looking at the fundamentals, reducing operating expense and profit.
