Billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s firm on Friday reported a 43 percent jump in its September quarter net profit as its businesses from oil to retail fired on all cylinders, growing both sequentially and on a year-on-year basis.
Net profit of Rs 13,680 crore, or Rs 20.88 per share, in July-September compared with Rs 9,567 crore, or Rs 14.84 a share, in the same period a year back, the company said in a statement.
While better realization and a sharp rise in crude oil prices benefited the old-economy business, retail saw footfalls at stores reach pre-COVID levels, and per-user earning from the telecom business rose.

Reliance operates four business verticals – the oil-to-chemical (or O2C) business includes its oil refineries, petrochemical plants, and fuel retailing business; a retail business that houses brick-and-motor stores and e-commerce; digital services that cover telecom arm Jio; and new energy business.
