NALCO posts 107% jump in net profits

May 2, 2000

National Aluminium has posted a share 107% rise in net profits for the year ended 31st March 2000. The company has benefited from a sharp improvement in operating margins. However the increase in interest and tax expenditure has weighed on the bottomline of the company. During the year, the aluminum prices rose sharply in the international markets following a rise in demand and an accident in a large alumina refinery. These factors benefited the company in terms of price realisations.

The stock currently trades at Rs 41, implying a P/E of 5x. The P/E is low as compared to the closing P/Es for the past three years (FY97 14.2, FY98 12.8 and FY99 27.9).
