BSES: Net margins improve in FY00

May 31, 2000

BSES, one of India's largest power generation and retail distribution company has recorded a net profit growth of 13.5% to Rs 3,068 m in FY2000. An 18% reduction in its interest costs helped it post these results.

While the company's income from sale of energy surged 11% to Rs 19.5 bn, its income from EPC, contracts and computer services declined by a significant 22% over FY99. A 21% surge in the cost of fuel was also responsible for the company's staid performance.

The company's Dahanu power station improved its PLF (plant load factor) to 88.7% during the period under review (76.6% in FY99). BSES also managed to cut the distribution loss of its electricity supply division to 11.5%.

BSES was recently in the news as a result of Reliance's open offer of Rs 234 per share for 20% of the company's equity. Reliance already holds around 15% stake in BSES.

The stock currently trades at a P/E multiple of 13.3.
