Kolkata: Polyester manufacturer Indo Rama Synthetics (India) Limited's profit after tax (PAT) dropped by 85.4 percent to 30 million for the financial year ended March 31 compared to 200 million during 2006-07.

The net sales for 2007-08 rose from 20.11 billion to 25.45 billion by 26.5 percent. The fourth quarter net sales stood at 6.44 billion, up by 5.02 percent as compared to 6.13 billion in the corresponding period in 2006-07.

"Our performance during the year, especially in the second half of the year, was impacted by lacklustre performance of the textile industry, which affected polyester demand and margins," the company's chairman and managing director O.P. Lohia said Monday.

The board of directors at its meeting declared an annual dividend of 10 percent, that is, Re.1 per equity share.
