Impressive results from Castrol

Feb 12, 2000

Castrol reported a 10.8% growth in topline with a 15% growth in bottomline. What is very creditable that the company has managed to slightly increase its operating margins. This is despite a rise in the base oil prices by almost 70% consequent to the doubling of crude oil prices over the past six months. The lube oil prices have not gone up significantly due to the heavy competition in the sector. One tonne of base oil produces around 1.1 tonne of lube oil. It is quite possible that the company could have booked its base oil imports in advance and that could provided a cushion to the company's margins.
