Revenue

Revenue for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 27,874 crore, higher 24% Q-o-Q & 43% Y-o-Y, primarily due to higher volume at Aluminium business, Zinc India, Iron ore business, higher power sales at TSPL and improved commodity prices.

Revenue for FY2021 was at ₹ 86,863 crore, higher 4%, mainly due to higher volume at Zinc India, Aluminium business, Iron ore & Steel business, higher commodity prices & rupee depreciation in FY2021. This was partially offset by lower volumes at Oil & Gas and Skorpion mine being under care and maintenance, lower power sales at TSPL and lower oil prices.

EBITDA and EBITDA Margin

EBITDA for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 9,107 crore, higher 18% Q-o-Q & 88% Y-o-Y, primarily due to higher volumes at Zinc India, Aluminium & Iron Ore business and higher commodity & oil prices in Q4 FY2021, partially offset by higher COP at Aluminium and steel business majorly due to input commodity inflation.

EBITDA for the FY2021 was at ₹ 27,341 crore, higher 30%, mainly on account of higher volume at Zinc India, Aluminium & Iron Ore business and structural reduction in COP at Aluminium business. This was partially offset by lower oil prices and lower volumes at Oil & Gas business. 

We had a robust EBITDA margin1 of 36% for the year (FY 2020: 29%)

Depreciation & Amortization

Depreciation & amortisation for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 2,054 crore, higher 7% Q-o-Q, primarily due to higher volume & projects capitalization at Zinc India and capitalization of pots in Aluminium business.

Depreciation & amortisation for Q4 FY2021 was lower by 9% Y-o-Y, primarily on account of lower charge at Oil & Gas business due to impairment of assets in Q4 FY2020, lower charge at Zinc International due to Skorpion mines under care and maintenance, partially offset by higher depreciation charge at Zinc India on account of higher ore production and additional capitalisation.

Depreciation & amortisation for FY2021 was at ₹ 7,638 crore, lower 16%, primarily on account of lower charge at Oil & Gas business due to impairment of assets in Q4 FY2020, lower charge at Zinc International due to Skorpion mines under care and maintenance, partially offset by higher depreciation charge at Zinc India on account of higher ore production and additional capitalisation.

Finance Cost and Investment Income

Finance cost for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 1,325 crore, flat Q-o-Q, higher interest cost due to lower interest capitalisation offset by repayment of borrowings.

Finance cost for Q4 FY2021 higher 24% Y-o-Y, primarily due to lower interest capitalisation.

Finance cost for FY2021 was at ₹ 5,210 crore, higher 5%, primarily due to lower interest capitalisation.

Investment Income for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 860 crore, higher 12% Q-o-Q & 41% Y-o-Y, primarily due to increase in interest income with a change in mix of investments.

Investment Income for FY2021 was at ₹ 3,269 crore, higher 34%, primarily due to increase in interest income with a change in mix of investments partially offset by lower investment corpus.

Exceptional Items

Exceptional items for Q4 FY2021 was at ₹ 773 crore, primarily due to provision in Steel business for obtaining environmental clearance, provision against advances, settlement of structured investments and CWIP impairment in Aluminium.

Exceptional items during FY2021 were ₹ 678 crore which pertains to provision in Steel business for obtaining environmental clearance, provision against advances, settlement of structured investments and CWIP impairment partly offset by RPO liability reversal in Aluminium.

Taxes

Tax credit for Q4 FY2021 stood at ₹ 1,886 crore (Q3 FY2021: Tax charge of ₹ 1,186 crore). The normalized ETR is 28% (excluding tax on exceptional items and deferred tax asset of ₹ 3,111 crore recognized on carry forward losses in ESL) compared to 27% in Q3. The normalized ETR for Q4 FY2020 was 49%.

The normalized ETR for FY2021 is 27% (excluding tax on exceptional items, tax on intra group dividend and deferred tax asset of ₹ 3,111 crore recognized on carry forward losses in ESL) compared to 34% in FY2020 which is primarily on account of change in profit mix and adoption of new tax regime in one of the major subsidiaries.

Attributable Profit after Tax (PAT) before exceptional items for the quarter was at ₹ 7,013 crore

For FY2021, Attributable Profit after Tax (PAT) before exceptional items was at ₹ 12,151 crore.

Gross debt was at ₹ 57,028 crore on 31st March 2021, decreased by ₹ 2,159 crore Y-o-Y. This was mainly due to repayment of debt at Aluminum and Zinc Business.

Net debt was at ₹ 24,414 crore on 31st March 2021, higher by ₹ 2,988 crore Y-o-Y, primarily driven by dividend payment during the year and inter-company loan (ICL) to VRL, partially offset by strong cash flow from operations post capex.

In this context, forward-looking statements often address our expected future business and financial performance, and often contain words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks,” “should” or “will.” Forward–looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. For us, uncertainties arise from the behaviour of financial and metals markets including the London Metal Exchange, fluctuations in interest and or exchange rates and metal prices; from future integration of acquired businesses; and from numerous other matters of national, regional and global scale, including those of a political, economic, business, competitive or regulatory nature. These uncertainties may cause our actual future results to be materially different that those expressed in our forward-looking statements.

bp And CEMEX Team Up On Net-Zero Emissions

Avatar

Published

on

The two companies have agreed to a memorandum of understanding to develop solutions to decarbonize the cement production process and transportation. These potential solutions may include low-carbon power, low-carbon transport, energy efficiency, natural carbon offsets, and carbon capture utilization and storage technologies. Additionally, they intend to work together to develop urbanization solutions envisioned to decarbonize cities.

“Concrete plays an integral role in society, and there are no substitutes for its key attributes, strength, and resilience. We believe it will continue to have a critical role in a low carbon economy, and the challenge for the industry is to find solutions to the manufacturing process emissions,” said Juan Romero, Executive Vice President Sustainability, Commercial, and Operations Development of CEMEX. “This initiative with bp is another example of the work we are doing with partners across industries, academia, and startups to tap into the latest innovation and disruptive technology to achieve our ambition of delivering net-zero CO2 concrete globally to all of our customers.”

William Lin, bp’s executive vice president, regions, cities & solutions (RC&S), said: “At bp, we want to help ‘greening companies’ meet their sustainability aims just as we are trying to do in our own company. We know that 70 percent of global emissions come from transport, industry and energy and that cement making is energy intensive. Teaming up with progressive companies like CEMEX, that share a net-zero ambition and have complementary capabilities, will help speed up the decarbonization of the industry and the energy system. Now is the time to work together on the path to net-zero and along the way generate mutual value.”

Helping cities and corporations to decarbonize is a core part of bp’s long-term strategy. The RC&S team aims to build enduring relationships ‎with cities and corporations around the world to offer bespoke, integrated and decarbonized energy solutions to complex energy needs – providing energy that is clean, reliable – and also affordable. And to decarbonize high-tech, consumer products, heavy transport, and heavy industry sectors – working with companies that currently have significant carbon emissions to manage and share bp’s net zero ambition.

Angélica Ruiz, bp’s head of country for Mexico and senior vice president for Latin America, said: “We’re proud to collaborate with a global company that shares our goal to transition to a more sustainable future. CEMEX is taking a leading role in decarbonizing the global cement industry, setting a fast pace of progress in all regions, including Mexico and Latin America. Our collaboration with CEMEX is another step towards our ambition to be a net-zero company by 2050 or sooner and help the world to get to net-zero.”

About bp
bp’s purpose is to reimagine energy for people and our planet. It has set out an ambition to be a net zero company by 2050, or sooner and help the world get to net zero, and a strategy for delivering on that ambition. Partnering with countries, cities and corporations to provide innovative energy, mobility and decarbonization solutions as they shape their paths to net zero is a core part of this strategy.

About CEMEX
CEMEX is a global building materials company that provides high-quality products and reliable services. CEMEX has a rich history of improving the well-being of those it serves through innovative building solutions, efficiency advancements, and efforts to promote a sustainable future.

Factors that might cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: (1) competitive pressure on sales and pricing, including pressure from imports and substitute materials; (2) U.S. and foreign trade policies affecting steel imports or exports; (3) the sensitivity of the results of our operations to prevailing market steel prices and changes in the supply and cost of raw materials, including pig iron, iron ore and scrap steel; (4) the availability and cost of electricity and natural gas, which could negatively affect our cost of steel production or result in a delay or cancellation of existing or future drilling within our natural gas drilling programs; (5) critical equipment failures and business interruptions; (6) market demand for steel products, which, in the case of many of our products, is driven by the level of nonresidential construction activity in the United States; (7) impairment in the recorded value of inventory, equity investments, fixed assets, goodwill or other long-lived assets; (8) uncertainties surrounding the global economy, including excess world capacity for steel production; (9) fluctuations in currency conversion rates; (10) significant changes in laws or government regulations affecting environmental compliance, including legislation and regulations that result in greater regulation of greenhouse gas emissions that could increase our energy costs, capital expenditures and operating costs or cause one or more of our permits to be revoked or make it more difficult to obtain permit modifications; (11) the cyclical nature of the steel industry; (12) capital investments and their impact on our performance; (13) our safety performance; and (14) the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. These and other factors are discussed in Nucor’s regulatory filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including those in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” of Nucor’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release speak only as of this date, and Nucor does not assume any obligation to update them, except as may be required by applicable law.
