Considering this, the cement sector is expected to experience good demand. On the Company financial front, Nuvoco has posted losses in two out of three financial years. It has reported a net loss of Rs 25.92 crore in FY21, a net profit of Rs 249.3 crore in FY20 and a net loss of Rs 26.5 crore in FY19.
