Retail business revenues have more than doubled and EBITDA has trebled on a Y-o-Y basis.

3:00 pm: Reliance Industries March quarter FY18 results
Reliance Industries today reported a 17.3 per cent jump in its fourth quarter net profit on the back of robust petrochemical margins and upstart telecom arm Jio's maiden profits. Its net profit of Rs 9,435 crore, or Rs 15.9 per share, in January-March was 17.3 per cent higher than Rs 8,046 crore, or Rs 13.6 a share, posted in the same period a year ago. On a sequential basis, the company's net profit rise was only 0.1 per cent, RIL said in a statement.
2:30 pm: Emkay Global: We estimate RIL’s petchem earnings to grow by 10%+ qoq due to steady margins and higher volumes though the same will be offset by 8% decline in refining from weaker GRM at US$10.2/bbl. We estimate EBITDA to be up by 2% qoq though PAT would decline 2-3% due to higher interest cost (from forex loss) and lower Other Income. In consolidated business, Retail/Jio earnings are expected to grow by 7-8% qoq with 28mn subs addition in the latter though ARPU is expected to weaken. Consolidated earnings is expected to be flat at Rs95bn in Q1.
Ahead of Q1 results, RIL share price was trading strong, gaining as much as 2.36 per cent to Rs 1136.60 on the BSE. RIL's stock has rallied 21 percent in 2018 on top of a 70.5 percent surge in the previous year. It is jusr Rs 3 away from its record high of Rs 1,138.25 touched last week.

12:15 pm: RIL share price trades atrong ahead of Q1 results
12:00 pm: Prabhudas Lilladher: RIL’s standalone earnings are likely to be muted at Rs 85.7bn due to weak refining margins; factored in US$11/bbl (US$11/bbl in Q4). We have factored in refining thruput at 16.9MTPA (Q4FY18 16.7MTPA). However, firm petrochemical spreads and higher volumes will support petrochemicals earnings.
