Over the last two years sales have grown considerably, as international oil prices have skyrocketed. In FY99 the company reported a drop in sales as oil prices had declined to $10 / barrel.

The rise in sales followed with a control on costs has ensured an impressive growth in OPM. Consequently, operating profits have also grown significantly. The OPM has increased by 530 basis points and 440 basis points during 4QFY01 and FY01 respectively.

During FY01, the company revised the policy for accounting for wells-in-progress. Earlier, wells-in-progress for a period of more than 5 years were charged to the income statement. Under the revised policy the time period has been reduced to more than three years. This has led to a reduction in profits by Rs 4.5 bn.

The post tax profits have received a boost from other income, which shot up over FY01. The rise was contributed by reimbursement from the Government amounting to Rs 4.4 bn. ONGC seems to be among the few companies that pay full tax rate. The effective tax rate has increased by 4.1 percentage points to 42.9% in FY01.

At Rs 163 the company trades on a multiple of 4.4x FY01 earnings. The stock price has moved up considerably since March '01. ONGC has proposed a dividend of Rs 11.
