Private players in fuel marketing: A serious threat?

Oct 6, 2006

The marketing of petroleum products was solely with the public sector oil marketing companies (OMCs) prior to dismantling of the APM and deregulation of the downstream oil-marketing segment. IOC, BPCL, HPCL and IBP were the sole downstream players (OMCs) in the oil value chain. However, the sector was deregulated and opened up for the private players at the start of FY03. Reliance (RIL), Essar and Shell were amongst the key players to be granted marketing rights. With the entry of private player

Indian Oil Corporation (IOC): Business Model Analysis

Jul 3, 2006

After covering a host of standalone refineries, we now shift our focus towards the refining and marketing (R&M) aspect of the energy value-chain. We start with this segment by analyzing the biggest player on the block, IOC.

IBP – IOC: Who got a better deal?

Dec 22, 2004

The press release from Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) reads as “Indian Oil Corporation Ltd has informed BSE that the Board of Directors of Company in their meeting held on December 22, 2004 have approved the Scheme of Amalgamation for merger of IBP Company Ltd (IBP) with the Company. The Board of Directors have also recommended a swap ratio of 125:100 i.e. 125 equity shares of Rs 10/- each of the Company ('the Transferee Company') as fully paid up for every 100 equity shares of Rs 10/- each of IBP

IOC: Paying for the policies…

Nov 30, 2004

Indian Oil Corporation, the country’s largest downstream petroleum sector company, posted a decent growth in the top-line in 2QFY05 with nearly 20% while the bottomline dipped by over 31% as a result of a freeze on pricing by the government in the face of rising input costs. Being a major player in the LPG segment, IOC took the largest hit on the subsidies front as LPG prices zoomed to over US$ 467 per tonne, as retail prices remained relatively unchanged.

IBP: A lone ranger…

Nov 29, 2004

IBP, a standalone marketing subsidiary of the energy sector’s largest downstream player IOC, posted poor 2QFY05 results. Although the topline improved by an impressive 31% YoY, the bottomline actually slipped in the negative with a margin of –2%. The company continues to take a hit from both sides i.e. prices of petro-products have increased at the sourcing level while prices have not increased proportionately at the sales side.

HPCL v/s BPCL: Who’s the better player?

Sep 20, 2004

Post disinvestment blues, the government is now eyeing a ‘merger of sorts’ between oil companies with BPCL being merged with ONGC while HPCL falling into IOC’s kitty. The aim is to create substantial entry blocks for new private and international players. With over 22,000 retail outlets by the turn of this fiscal and only a 3% to 4% growth across the energy sector, this move seems to be a positive for the downstream oil marketing companies so as to sustain profitability and growth.

Energy: Will 'this' happen?

Aug 27, 2004

Recently, the petroleum ministry mooted the idea of two mega-mergers of oil companies, one involving ONGC while the other, IOC. The idea here was to merge BPCL, HPCL and ONGC on one had and IOC, IBP and OIL India on the other. These mergers, if they were to take place, would result in India’s two major companies featuring in the prominent list of global 500 companies. Let us now analyze the various business parameters that would drive these mergers to success.

Petrochemicals: A SWOT Analysis

Jul 20, 2004

The Indian petrochemicals industry is finally discarding its nascent stage tag and the companies are now vying for a major chunk of the global pie of the petrochemicals market. Indian major Reliance has recently acquired a German polyester major Trevira GmbH and this marks the private sector giant's entry into the European markets in a big way. At the same time, ONGC and IOC are planning entry into the business in a major way as this is in line with their forward integration plans.

IOC: Retail rush

Jun 14, 2004

Indian oil companies have been aggressively announcing plans to ramp up their retail presence in the face of competition from private players. In one such move, Indian Oil Corporation, the largest oil company in the country, has announced plans to set up nearly 1,000 retail outlets in the country in FY05. The company currently has nearly 9,000 retail outlets spread across the country.

HPCL: On a strong footing?

Mar 22, 2004

Reliance and Essar Oil's entry into the retail segment of the petroleum sector is a good news for the economy. However, whether they would be successful in cornering a reasonable chunk of the market share remains to be seen, with HPCL, BPCL, IOC and IBP already established players in the business. In this article, we consider the strengths of HPCL and its future growth prospects.

Oil PSUs: What's ahead?

Mar 19, 2004

Oil marketing has so far been the forte of the PSUs such as IOC, BPCL, HPCL and IBP. Now, with the opening up of the downstream segment (that includes marketing of petroleum products and LPG) for the private and foreign players in the energy sector, competition is likely to reach enormous proportions with the private sector giant Reliance going all out selling its petroleum products from the Jamnagar refinery.

IOC v/s Shell: How big is too big???

Mar 16, 2004

As the second of our series on global comparisons of oil companies, we look into the performances of India’s only Fortune 500 representative, Indian Oil Corporation (ranked 191) and the Netherlands based Royal Dutch/Shell. The two major companies follow a similar business model except for the fact that Shell has a presence in the upstream activities of exploration and production (E&P) along with shipping and trading.

IOC: The economy push

Feb 20, 2004

Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOC), the flagship PSU, recently announced robust December quarter results. While the topline has shown a healthy growth of 13%, the bottomline has risen by an impressive 210% YoY. Operating margins have improved substantially by 710 basis points. The company’s nine-month performance has also been impressive with the topline registering 9% YoY growth while the bottomline has improved by 32%YoY.

IOC: Aiming for integration

Aug 7, 2003

IOC (Indian Oil Corporation), India's largest company in terms of revenues, announced its 1QFY04 results recently. The company reported a topline growth of about 14% on account of higher realisations despite decline in volumes. The bottomline improved by about 51%, significantly higher than the topline growth.
