MRF's Multifold Jump in Bottomline Doesn't Excite Investors

Aug 10, 2021

India's most highly priced stock, MRF on Monday posted results for the quarter ended June 2021.

The tyre major reported an over 12-fold increase in its consolidated net profit to Rs 1.7 bn. This compared with a net profit of Rs 130 m reported in the April-June quarter of last year.

The low base in the year ago quarter was due to a total lockdown on account of the first wave of the pandemic.

Sequentially, profit declined 50%. In the March 2021 quarter, MRF had posted a net profit of Rs 3.3 bn.

MRF's topline rose to Rs 41.8 bn for the first quarter as against Rs 24.6 bn in the year ago period.

Total expenses during the quarter rose to Rs 40.5 bn. This was due to a rise in cost of raw materials.

MRF's EBITDA grew 49.2% to Rs 4.9 bn in the first quarter of the current financial year.

The company said its business was affected due to selective lockdowns declared in different parts of the country.

Considering the present and the future economic indicators, MRF does not foresee any incremental risk regarding recoverability of assets and ability to service financial obligations.

MRF has strong balance sheet and has serviced all its debt obligations in a timely manner.

Green energy strategy

Recently, the company said it's working on a multipronged '4R' strategy to improve sustainability of the industry. The 4Rs relate to reduce, recycle, reuse, and renewable.

MRF intends to reduce CO2 emissions by developing low-rolling resistance tyres, recycle end-of-lifecycle tyres as raw material for new tyres, reuse by promoting multiple retreaded tyres, and promote critical tyre raw materials from environmentally-sustainable sources such as biomass and waste materials.

To become more environment-friendly, the company has made some changes in the raw-material mix for two-wheeler and passenger car tyres.

On exports, MRF said it took a beating in the first half of last fiscal due to Covid-19 but then saw good traction leading to a spurt in overseas shipments.

MRF is also looking at developing raw materials jointly with domestic players, in a bid to cut dependence on imports.

As part of the import substitution initiative, the company is working on developing raw materials such as sulphur, butyl rubber, microcrystalline wax, and tackifier resin, among others, jointly with the domestic sources.
