BSES 3QFY01 net dips 5%

Jan 30, 2001

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
Sale of electrical energy 5,103 5,466 7.1% 14,558 16,735 15.0%

No. of Shares (eoy) (m) 137.9 137.9   137.9 137.9  
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.
