Tata Steel Announces Dividend and Stock Split. 5 Takeaways from the Companys Q4 Earnings

Tata Steel, which announced its March quarter results yesterday, has come under the radar after posting good numbers.

The Tata group company also announced a hefty dividend and sub-division of its shares.

Here are five key takeaways from the company's March quarter results:

  • The steel major reported around 37% jump in its net profit at Rs 98.4 bn. This compared to Rs 71.6 bn profit posted in the year ago quarter.
  • The company's revenue from operations rose 38% to Rs 693.2 bn for the three months period as against Rs 500.3 bn in the year ago period.
  • In India operations, the company achieved highest ever annual crude steel production of 19.06 m tons, with a growth of 13% YoY.
  • For full financial year 2021-22, Tata Steel clocked a net profit of Rs 417.5 bn, which translates into a more than five-fold jump from previous fiscal's figure of Rs 81.9 bn.
  • The board of directors also recommended a dividend of Rs 51 per fully paid equity share and Rs 12.75 per partly paid equity share.

Tata Steel became the Tata group company's most profitable company, surpassing Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) after several years, aided by rising steel prices due to commodity supercycle.

Stock split

Tata Steel approved a proposal to split its shares in the ratio of 10-to-1.

The split, however, is subject to regulatory and statutory approvals.

The record date for the same will be decided by Tata Steel's board and will be intimated to the exchanges soon.

A company usually opts for a stock split to make its shares more affordable and increase liquidity in the stock.
