Thedividend for the year is equivalent to last year's dividend on pre-bonus share capital.The total dividend outlay including dividend distribution tax for the year works out toRs. 173.82 crores (Previous year Rs. 176.33 crores).
> FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE:
Your Company has recorded highest-ever gross sales of Rs. 1323.46 crores duringfinancial year 2017-18 as compared to Rs. 989.84 crores in previous year. Profit beforetax (PBT) for the year has increased by 40.27% to Rs. 647.92 crores in comparison toprevious year's PBT of Rs. 461.90 crores. The Company has earned a profit after tax (PAT)of Rs. 421.99 crores as against Rs. 305.83 crores in the previous year. Totalcomprehensive income for the year is Rs. 398.55 crores. Substantial increase in productionleading to availability of higher quantity for sales better product/sales mix increasein average realisations as a result thereof coupled with better market condition during2017-18 are the main factors for the very good performance.
As per the Government Guidelines your Company has deployed surplus funds in fixeddeposits and mutual funds and earned interest income which is included in total interestreceived of Rs.160.92 crores (Previous year Rs.185.60 crores) and clubbed under otherincome. The interest income has come down mainly because cash outflow of Rs. 210.40 croreson account of buy back of shares and also reduction of average rate of interest.
In financial year 2017-18 MOIL has achieved highest-ever turnover of Rs. 1323.46crores registering a growth of more than 33.70% over previous year's turnover of Rs.989.84 crores. During financial year 2017-18 more often then not the prices of importedmanganese ore as well as alloy prices were showing upward trend which gave positivesentiments to the Indian ferro alloy industry. In order to take advantage of such upwardtrend as well as to fetch better sales realizations whenever possible MOIL continuedreviewing the prices on monthly basis instead of quarterly review. During the year theaverage sales realisation has increased from Rs. 8018 to Rs. 10201 and company's salesturnover of manganese ore has increased by 33.74% from Rs. 905.34 crores to Rs.1210.79crores. With a prudent marketing and pricing policy your company has been able toincrease the sales of manganese ore by about 5.13% from 11.29 lakh MT in the financialyear 2016-17 to 11.87 lakh MT in financial year 2017-18which also includes highest eversales of non-fines manganese ore main line of business of the Company. During the yearthe company has continued to take various positive steps in order devine the best out ofmarket conditions to increase the sales such as continuance of partial railway freightreimbursement to the buyers located in far-flung areas etc.
In respect of manufactured products of the company viz. electrolytic manganesedi-oxide (EMD) and ferro manganese the total net sales during the year 2017-18 was Rs.105.65 crores in comparison to Rs. 76.67 crores during previous year. The sales quantityof EMD has slightly decreased from 952 MT in the year 2016-17 to 915 MT in the year2017-18 a result of lesser carry over inventory. However the quantity of sale of FerroManganese has increased by 16.30% from 9540 MT in the year 2016-17 to 11095 MTin the year2017-18.

Pursuant to first proviso to sub-section (3) of section 129read with rule 5 of Companies (Accounts) Rules 2014 a statement containing salientfeatures of the financial statement of associate companies (Form AOC-I) are annexed asAnnexure-I.
> Exploration Business
Ministry of Mines Govt of India has notified MOIL for conducting exploration ofvarious minerals on pan-India basis under per section 4(1) of the MMDR Act 1957. Thisprovides an opportunity to MOIL to expand its business in this new area. MOIL has signedMoU with National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) Hyderabad on 01.09.2017 for conductingremote sensing study in four districts of Madhya Pradesh state i.e. BalaghatChhindwara Jabalpur and Jhabua to delineate the concealed manganese ore within thedistricts. After completion of the study detail exploration work will be carried out asper MoU signed with Govt of Madhya Pradesh.
> Exploration and Petrography
MOIL is going to establish in-house Remote Sensing and GIS laboratory along withpetrography laboratory for capacity building of R&D and for internal study.
> Research and development (R&D)
MOIL is engaged in exploration exploitation and marketing of various grades ofmanganese ore and also producing value added products such as electrolytic manganesedi-oxide (EMD) and high carbon ferro manganese alloys at mine pit head. MOIL operates tenmines in central India in which three mines are operated by opencast and seven mines byunderground in narrow manganese ore body with varying dip directions with difficultgeo-mining conditions associated with poor rock-mass quality of wall rocks. The companyhas carried out R&D activities to improve the safety productivity and environmentalstandards in the mines by introducing newer technology in consultation with reputedacademic and CSIR-R&D Institutions of the country. MOIL has engaged and has beenassociated with following institutions for various R&D projects;
CSIR - Central Institute of Mining & Fuel Research (CIMFR) Nagpur and Dhanbad
CSIR-National Metallurgical Laboratory(NML)Jamshedpur
CSIR- National Geophysical Research Institution (NGRI) Hyderabad
CSIR -National Environmental and Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) Nagpur
Indian Institute ofTechnology (IIT) Kharagpur
Indian Institute ofTechnology (IIT) (Formerly Indian School of Mines) Dhanbad
National Institute ofTechnology (NIT) Rourkela
Visvesaraya National Institute ofTechnology (VNIT) Nagpur
National Institute of Rock Mechanics (NIRM) Kolar Gold Fields
Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST) Shibpur
National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC) Hyderabad Significant R&D projects in MOILare listed below;
1. Mine Environment:
Indian Institute ofTechnology (IIT) Kharagpur has conducted ventilationreorganization studies for deeper levels at Munsar Kandri and Ukwa Mines. Accordinglynew ventilation drifts are now being developed at Kandri and Chikla Mine for installationof large diameter ventilation fans.
2. Mines Safety - Mining Subsidence:
In-house scientific 3-D analysis of subsidence parameters has been carried out by MinePlanning and Design Department for Munsar Mine. With the analysis it is confirmed that nonoticeable movement of any orthogonal direction has been found at the Mine.
3. Mineral conservation:
R&D studies have been conducted at Munsar Mine by NIRM. The suggested stope designhas incorporated placement of haulage drive in foot wall rock with roof bolts in haulagedrive x-cut and in stope. This has totally eliminated the in situ sill pillar in themanganese ore body and thus saved the locked mineral in sill pillar. The modified stopedesign has increased the quantity of manganese ore in underground mines for exploitationby around 20% thus conserving the valuable mineral resource.
4. Mining Technology
R&D project for entry to the underground stoping area by decline has been preparedby CSIR-CIMFR Nagpur for Gumgaon Mine. Feasibility studies are going on for economicevaluation. This may help in improved production safety and productivity by mechanizationof stoping operations.
(b) Alternative to Cartage Explosives:
To reduce the ground vibrations fly rock and noise Site Mix Emulsion (SME) explosiveshave been used with shock tubes at Dongri Buzurg Opencast Mine. The post blast result ofthe SME is found satisfactory and it has reduced noise level ground vibrations and flyrock substantially besides increasing operational efficiency.
5. Collaborative work with Academic and Research Institutions:
(a) MOIL is carrying out joint collaborative research & development project withNIRM Bangaluru for installation of modern scientific rock mechanics instruments atBalaghat Mine.
(b) A collaborative research for slope stabilization with National Institute ofTechnology Raurkela for Modern Slope Monitoring Instruments -Time Domain Reflectometry(TDR) using Wireless Sensor Network is going on at Dongri Buzurg Mine for better safety.
6. In house -R&D works:
Mine Planning and Design Department has conducted the in-house R&D study onoverburden material to use as a fill material in underground by hydraulic transportationat Munsar Mine on experimental basis and filed a patent.
(b) Pre-cast RCC Columns & Sections:
In house developed pre-cast RCC columns and sections have been rapidly erected in driftdevelopment and thus improved the safety standard of drift development in underground.
