HPCL: Oil bonds once again!

Feb 2, 2007

HPCL, the refining and marketing major, has declared its 3QFY07 and 9mFY07 results. Topline has registered a growth of 21% YoY on the back of robust demand for petroleum products and issue of oil bonds by the government. Improved operating performance is largely a function of oil bonds along with reduced losses on marketing of retail products. Interest on oil bonds led to significant growth in the other income, which registered a whopping growth of 390% YoY for 3QFY07. Additional interest cost was largely offset by the increase in other income during both the periods under consideration.
