KEC International Share: The shares of KEC International, the country’s second-largest company manufacturing electric power transmission towers, witnessed a significant surge today. The stock price jumped more than 15 percent intra-day, marking the biggest rise since March 2015. This upswing is attributed to a recent influx of orders received by the company.

KEC International Share Record High Reached

The buying spree drove the share price to a record high of Rs 838.25 during intra-day trading. While profit booking caused a slight price softening, the stock remains in a strong position, currently trading at Rs 812.95 on BSE, reflecting a gain of 11.58%.

KEC International Order Book Boost

The recent surge is a direct consequence of new orders secured by KEC International on Wednesday, valued at a total of ₹816 crore. These orders span across the company’s various business segments:

  • Civil Business: Setting up infrastructure projects like a plant for carbon derivatives, a steel plant, and a cement plant within India.
  • Transmission and Distribution (T&D) Business: Supplying towers to clients in the US.
  • Cable Business: Supplying various types of cables for projects in India and abroad.

These new orders bolster the company’s order book for FY 2024 to ₹18,102 crore, although falling slightly short of the initial target of Rs 20,000 crore.
