Railways and engineering companies stock has been on fire over the past year as government as well as private companies have increased their capital expenditures, witnessing demand. The government has focused on connectivity, lowering time and cost, and pushing India toward a manufacturing hub.

Texmaco Rail & Engineering Ltd., a leading freight car manufacturer serving as the largest supplier of wagons to the Indian Railways, recently declared its quarterly results. The company's major operating divisions include the heavy engineering division, which focuses on wagon, hydro-mechanical equipment, and process equipment manufacturing facilities, and the steel foundry division.

The company reported an EBITDA of Rs. 76 crore, indicating a YoY increase of 76.74%. While the EBITDA margin remained steady on a YoY basis at 9%, it showed a 600 basis point improvement sequentially.

All segments of the company, including heavy engineering and steel foundry, exhibited strong revenue growth during the quarter. Revenue from heavy engineering saw a jump of two times in revenue to Rs. 616 crore from Rs. 192 crore in the comparable quarter. Whereas, revenue from the steel foundry rose by 60%, from Rs. 123 crore to Rs. 202 crore, compared to the previous year. Revenue from rail and green energy (Infra) reached Rs.123 crore, while electrical (Infra) contributed Rs.32.23 crore.

Back in mid-September, the board of directors of the company approved plan to raise funds up to Rs 1,000 crore by way of issuance of equity shares through qualified institution placement (QIP) and right issue. The funding plan was to infuse fresh capital into the company and also shape Texmaco Rail's expansion plans and future growth potential.
