FERRO ALLOY BUSINESS RETROSPECT AND OUTLOOK
Ferro Alloys is an additive which is used in manufacturing of steel which consists ofless than one percent of the total raw material required for steel production. Despitebeing very low constituent Ferro Alloys are vital additives for steel making. Theprincipal function of Ferro Alloy addition is that it increases the resistance of steel tocorrosion and oxidation improves its hardenability tensile strength at hightemperatures wear and abrasion resistance and increases its other properties like creepstrength etc. Ferro Alloys are generally used to impart engineering properties to steel.Ferro Alloys are vital input for producing all type of steel and are used as raw materialin the production of special steels alloy steels and stainless steels.
Production of Crude Steel Alloy and Special Steel and Stainless Steel are major demanddrivers of Ferro Alloys. Owing to demand de-growth Financial Year 2015-16 witnessed asteep fall in commodity prices globally including prices of steel leading to immensepressure on operating margins of the steel plants worldwide including India. Besides weakdemand in major steel-producing neighboring nations such as China Japan and South Koreahave forced them to focus on exports at aggressive prices to large consumers like Indiahurting the financial health of the Indian steel makers further. The current woes andchallenges of the steel industry on account of cheap imports at predatory prices remainconcern for Ferro Alloy Industry of the country. Apart from weak steel demand for thereasons stated above demand for Indian Ferro Alloy Industry had also been facing dumpingof Ferro Silicon from China Malaysia and Bhutan which impacted realization during theyear under review.
Despite these constraints and challenging environment your Company continued to focuson its fundamental strength of its ability to continuously focus on productivity andquality. There was strong emphasis on internal efficiencies together with an improvementin the sales mix which enabled your Company to withstand inflationary pressures on costsand profitability. However huge erosion of realisation shows sharp decline inProfitability of the Company in this Financial Year as compared to previous year.
During the year under review your Company has sold 16105 MT of Ferro Silicon asagainst 13849 MT during the immediate previous year resulting an increase of 16 % inSales volume despite stressed market condition. While your Company constantly strives toincrease stakeholders value emphasis continues to be on delivering value tocustomers and strengthening processes while driving sustainable practices resulting intoexpanding our customer base.
Indian Ferro Alloy Industry has been facing challenges on cost front too in form ofhigh cost of electric power a major cost driver inadequate transportation facilities andtechnological challenges. India accounts for 10% of worlds Ferro Alloy productionwith installed capacity of more than 5 Million MT per annum. The industry has abundantrich Chrome Ore and Manganese deposit but has not been globally competitive despite lowmanpower cost mainly due to challenges faced by the Industry as mentioned above.
Indian Ferro Alloy Market is likely to experience slight contraction in short term onaccount of lowering of export demand. On Price and realisation front it is expected tomoderate further but at a slower pace. There is stiff competition from the producers andexporters of the Ferro Alloys in India. Exports from India to China South Africa andother countries constituting nearly 50% of the market of the Ferro Alloys earlier issuffering heavily for economic slowdown in China and low-cost infiltration of Ferro Alloysfrom Malaysia and Bhutan. However with Governments focus on housing andinfrastructure steel demand is likely to get a boost and thereby countrys FerroAlloy Industry is likely to improve. Recent initiative of Central Government in the areaof regulating steel imports through import duty rationalisation is also likely to havepositive impact on countrys steel and Ferro Alloy industry.
During the year under review your Company generated 552.46 Lacs unit as compared to641.17 Lacs unit which was captively consumed by the Company.
Further the performance of M/s. Meghalaya Power Limited Associate Company was veryoptimistic. The power generation has increased to 1831.14 Lacs units as compared to1679.23 Lacs units recorded in the previous year. During the Financial year 2015-16 theCompany has posted PBT of Rs. 1472.07 Lacs and PAT of Rs. 1082.84 Lacs as against Rs.1287.39 Lacs and Rs. 544.66 Lacs respectively recorded in the previous Financial Year.
OPPORTUNITIES & THREATS RISKS AND CONCERNS
Performance of the Company depends on the continued demand for our products in thesteel and stainless steel industry. The Steel business is cyclical in nature accordinglyperformance and results of operations are influenced by a variety of factors relating tothe steel industry like fluctuations in demand and supply of steel and steel productsboth domestically and internationally general economic conditions and changes in theinternational prices of steel and steel products and slowdowns in steel industry.Uncertainty of availability of raw materials and other resources such as wateruninterrupted power supply skilled manpower etc. high cost insufficient infrastructuralfacilities for rapid transportation from ore mines to plants may also affect theoperations and in turn the financial condition and profitability of the Company.
Despite these threats Indian Ferroalloy industry has tremendous growth opportunitiesdue to very fast industrialisation and urbanisation in India which may lead India inemerging as the leading exporter of Ferro Alloys for the world.
With the Governments thrust to develop infrastructure sectors and allocation ofmore funds the Ferro alloy industry which fully depends on performance of steel industryis expected to grow in future. The Government has listed few Ferro Alloys under the FocusProduct Scheme which provides export benefits to the sector. It has also listed Ferromanganese slag under the restricted list of imports and imposed high customs duty on rawmaterials for manufacturing Ferro vanadium.
The Company has evolved a risk management framework to identify assess and mitigatethe key risk factors of the business. The Board of the Company is kept informed about therisk management of the Company.
PERFORMANCE AND OPERATIONS REVIEW
Due to slower growth in Global steel market output the performance of Ferro alloyremained dampened during the year under review. Despite weak economy and intense marketsituation the Ferro Alloy segment posted total revenue of Rs. 11363.42 Lacs and Profitbefore Tax of Rs. 158.77 Lacs as against Rs. 11591.00 Lacs and Rs. 881.30 Lacsrespectively during the previous Financial Year. During the year under review yourCompany produced 15104 MT of Ferro Silicon as against 14835 MT during FY 2014-15.Although net realisation per ton has reduced considerably during the year under review ascompared to previous Financial Year your Company has been able to sustain these pressuresby bringing efficiencies in operations.
