Tyre maker Ceat reported a 98.6 per cent decline in its consolidated net profit at Rs 1.38 crore for the June quarter due to destocking by trade partners ahead of the GST rollout and higher expenses.

The company had posted a net profit of Rs 103.26 crore during the corresponding period of the previous fiscal, Ceat said in a BSE filing.

Total expenses during the quarter under review stood at Rs 1,636.13 crore as against Rs 1,516.23 in the year ago period.

"Q1 was a challenging quarter for us in light of destocking by the channel partners due to the GST and peak RM prices which hit us at the same time," Ceat Managing Director Anand Goenka said.

Total income during the period also declined to Rs 1,638.95 crore compared to Rs 1,651.83 crore in the corresponding quarter of last fiscal.

On the outlook, Goenka said: "Notwithstanding the short term impact of GST, we expect it to bring positive impact for the tyre industry in the long run."
