Revenue Earned from Two Key Verticals of Tata Chemicals

Basic Chemistry Products: Revenue at Rs 7.9 bn (up 13%), operating profits were marginally down at Rs 1.9 bn (margin 23%) in FY21, down from Rs 2bn (margin 28%) versus the last year.

Overall margins were marginally impacted due to lower sales realisation despite improved sale volumes across product portfolio.

Specialty Products: Specialty products business in India had a good and encouraging last quarter for FY21.

Revenue increased for the quarter to Rs 490 m (up by 59%), on the back of increasing volumes across products portfolio.

Overall for FY21, revenue increased to RS 1.5 bn (up 106%) versus Rs 740 m recorded in the previous year.

Commenting on the results, Mr Mukundan, MD & CEO of Tata Chemicals said -

  • "During the year, we witnessed a sequential improvement in demand and this quarter saw continuation of the same trend.

    With the second wave of COVID-19, our priority will be the health and safety of our stakeholders and we are undertaking several initiatives to cater to the well-being of the employees and communities.

    During the quarter, our profits were muted due to one off in US operations caused by Polar Vortex leading to sharp rise in gas prices.

    There was one off in UK operations due to tax asset write off, re-financing cost. We are witnessing strengthening of Spot soda ash prices which will ease margin pressures sequentially in the coming quarters.

    Going forward, time bound commissioning of capacities in Mithapur and Dahej coupled with growth of Specialty products are critical steps towards transformation of the company."

Equitymaster's View on Tata Chemicals Right Now...

We reached out to Tanushree Banerjee, Co-Head of Research at Equitymaster, and Editor of the premium stock recommendation service, StockSelect, for her view on the company.

Here's what she has to say -

  • "Robust demand in domestic markets, following rebound in economic activities in 2020 had lifted prices of specialty chemicals sharply.

    Apart from that soda ash, sodium bicarbonate and edible salts volumes continue to improve steadily. These bode well for the earnings of Tata Chemicals so far.

    Investors also remain optimistic on the lithium battery business plan of Tata Chemicals that can add to earnings starting FY23.

    However, the second wave of the pandemic will remain an overhang on the near-term earnings potential and valuations of the stock.

    The performance of the international business also hurt profits.

    During Q4FY21, profits were muted due to US operations being impacted by Polar Vortex leading to sharp rise in gas prices. There was one off in UK operations due to tax asset write off, re-financing cost".
