Rain Industries’ stock has dropped 12% as a result of a Rs 97 crore loss in the fourth quarter.
Rain Industries’ stock fell more than 12% in the morning session of February 28 after the business reported a consolidated net loss of Rs 97 crore in the December quarter, compared to a profit of Rs 307 crore the previous quarter.

In the fourth quarter, profit before tax fell 49.8% to Rs 223.46 crore, compared to the previous quarter. Finance expenditures were reported at Rs 119 crore, down from Rs 124 crore in the fourth quarter of 2020. The fall in finance expenses was attributed to a 2.6 percent devaluation of the euro against the Indian rupee, as well as decreased use of working capital borrowings, when compared to the previous quarter.

As part of the 4.7 percent deal, Vodafone Plc sold a 2.4 percent share in Indus Towers to Bharti Airtel on Thursday. Vodafone Plc held a 28 percent ownership in the tower company before to the transaction, while Bharti Airtel maintained a 42 percent share.
The market extended selling as a result of the Russia-Ukraine issue. Over a hundred small-cap stocks have lost 10% to 22% of their value.
Due to several variables such as the Russia-Ukraine situation, rising crude oil prices, F&O expiry, and persistent FII selling, the market extended its selling for the third consecutive week ended February 25 amid extreme volatility.
