    BSES 3QFY01 net dips 5%

    BSES Limited, India's leading power generation and distribution company, has recorded a 5% decline in its 3QFY01 bottomline to Rs 769 m. The company's turnover growth was a marginal 7% during the period. A 36% jump in its expenditure pruned its bottomline.

    (Rs m) 3QFY00 3QFY01 Change 9m FY00 9m FY01 Change

    Earnings per share*       21.3 21.6  
    Current P/e ratio         10.5  

    The company's increasing cost of electrical energy purchased continued to be its bane. The cost of electrical energy jumped 40% during the quarter to Rs 2,627 m.

    On the operational front however, the company managed to prune its interest costs by 27% in 3QFY01, and by 24% on a nine month consolidated basis. Another redeeming factor in its 3QFY01 results was a whopping 214% jump in the income from EPC, contracts and the computer division.

    On a nine month consolidated basis, the company's sale of electricity revenues improved by 15%, and its bottomline showed a small improvement of 1% YoY.

    At the current price of Rs 226, the stock trades at a P/e multiple of 10.5 times its nine month annualised FY01 earnings.
