BHEL: Signs of slowdown?
Apr 7, 2008

Public sector power equipment major, BHEL announced its provisional results for FY08 last week. The company has recorded a 15% YoY increase in turnover (sales plus other income) and a 17% YoY increase in net profits for the fiscal. When compared to the 9mFY08 performance, BHEL has seen real pressure inflicted on it during 4QFY08. Calculations indicate that the company’s net profits have actually declined by 7% YoY during the fourth quarter. As reported by the management, the bottomline during 4QFY08 has been impacted on account of acute shortage of workers and delays in order execution owing to capacity constraints.
