Production volume for the first nine months of FY01 grew by 24% to 7.9 from 6.4 m tonnes. The sales include merchant sales of Rs 22.7 bn and inter-divisional sales of Rs 37.2 bn. Adjusting for these items the sales still grow by 55% for the first nine months of FY01. Sales (excluding merchant sales) has grown by 41% in 9m FY01. The topline was driven by a 32% growth in volumes and a 9% growth in realisations. Expenses of the company are up sharply in the 9 month period indicating the firm naphtha prices, which have impacted the company's margins.

Operating profits are up a healthy 34% for the quarter. The company has increased its OPM by 60 basis points this quarter as compared to the 400 basis points drop in the previous quarter. However, on a 9 month basis the OPM is down 210 basis points. This is due to the severe pressure on the OPM during 1HFY01. With oil markets cooling off in 4QFY01 the pressure on margins is expected to subside, positively impacting the company's operating profits.

Reliance has reiterated its intention of focusing on new growth areas. It new initiative include power, telecom and infocom. It is also planning on consolidating the balance sheet of Reliance Petroleum (RPL) in FY02 and to consolidate the balance sheet of Bombay Suburban Electricity Supply (BSES) at a later date. This should further boost the bottomline of RIL.

At Rs 384 the company is trading at a multiple of 13.3x on 3QFY01 annualised earnings. On a 9 month time frame the company trades on a multiple of 15.4x annualised earnings.
