The good news from the company is that it has won an export contract from a leading African conglomerate to supply 4 utility boilers, 8 heat recovery steam generators and 2 flue gas steam generators for its refinery and petrochemical project coming up in Nigeria.

Thermax enjoys very high investor fancy thus even the smallest of good news spikes up the price and vice versa. Now we hope that these orders start translating into a good financial performance. It had ended Q3FY17 with a 21% (YoY) drop in total income and 16% fall in net profit at Rs.57 crore.
