Electrical equipment and appliances maker Havells India today reported a 23 per cent increase in consolidated profit after tax (PAT) to Rs 87 crore for the first quarter ended June 30, 2013.

The company had posted a PAT of Rs 71 crore in the corresponding quarter last year, Havells India said in a statement.

Revenues during the quarter under review stood at Rs 1,823 crore, up 3 per cent from Rs 1,778 crore in the year-ago period.

Commenting on the performance, the company said the consistent growth in profitability was achieved through improvement in margins.

On a standalone basis the switchgear revenue stood at Rs 275.97 crore during the quarter, while that of electrical consumer durables was at Rs 222.25 crore.
