Product category FY24 FY23 FY22

Unallocated 0.76% 0.51% 0.63%


The diversification by the company has opened opportunity for new customer arena. The bio-based chemicals find application in various industries and some of the names are mentioned below.

Particulars FY24 FY23 FY22
Of revenue from operations (in %)
Trading 37.55% 37.12% 40.96%
Fuel 28.58% 28.09% 25.02%
Beverage 9.07% 4.46% 6.98%

In house R&D

Strong promoter

In order to evolve and adapt to a changing business conditions and customer preferences, side by side growing its product variety and customer reach. The company hopes to capitalize on the group's reputation, skills, and knowledge.

Risks Factors:

Dependant on a few suppliers and buyers

For converting the sugarcane into sugar and ethanol, many catalysts are used for processing of the raw material. The company sources its raw materials from a select number of third-party suppliers both domestic and abroad.

Below mentioned are top suppliers contributing, which contributes to majority of raw materials purchases.

Particulars FY24 FY23 FY22
% of total raw material purchases (excluding sugarcane)
Top 3 suppliers 68.94% 53.49% 72.51%
Top 5 suppliers 84.10% 66.86% 79.58%
Top 10 suppliers 94.71% 86.45% 89.28%


Below mentioned is percentage distribution of top suppliers of imported raw materials with regard to purchases of total raw materials except sugarcane.

Particulars FY24 FY23 FY22
of total raw material purchases (excluding sugarcane)
Purchases from three largest suppliers of imported raw materials 55.63% 46.97% 69.10%
Purchases from five largest suppliers of imported raw materials 57.15% 48.37% 69.54%
Purchases from ten largest suppliers of imported raw materials 57.15% 48.37% 69.54%


In this unfavorable geopolitical world, when shipped are attacked, relation between countries are damaged overnight, dependence on foreign suppliers poses great risks to the company. If any political and economic instability occurs between nations and the company is unable to find an alternative f of supplies, it may lose the ability to manufacture products in a timely or cost-effective manner.

Some of company’s product like ethanol is used as raw material in the making of final product. So like the suppliers, the company is heavily relied on a bunch of customers for a significant portion of its revenues.

Particulars FY24 FY23 FY22
% of revenue from operations
Revenue from our top 5 customers 45.47% 38.19% 36.31%
Revenue from our top 10 customers 57.00% 52.15% 47.92%


Selling to few customers comes with positive and negative. As Godavari sets it reliance on bunch of customers, it may impact its ability to competitively negotiate arrangements. The loss of any of the top customer may significantly impact their operation financials and cash flows.

Profitability dependant on raw material

Sugarcane is the base raw material for the manufacturing of sugar, ethanol, and other related products. Rainfall, planting time, MSP decided by government and sugarcane deficit, all has an impact on sugarcane prices and crops. A sugarcane crop deficit might have a direct impact on the business's operations and financials.

The firm distributes a large amount of its overall ethanol output to oil companies as part of the Indian government's ethanol blended petrol program (EBP Program).

In FY24, FY23, and FY22, revenue from the sale of ethanol from the ethanol blended petrol program (EBP) Program accounted for 28.58%, 28.11%, and 25.16% of the company's operating revenue.
