Tata Metaliks Share Price Jumps 8% After Turning Profitable

Backed by higher sales and price realisation, Tata Metaliks, a subsidiary of Tata Steel, on Tuesday reported a net profit of Rs 947.2 m for the first quarter ended June 2021.

This was against a loss of Rs 123.6 m posted in the same period last year.

Total income during April-June quarter increased to Rs 6.1 bn from Rs 2.1 bn in the year-ago period.

Expenses were at Rs 4.7 bn during the first quarter of the financial year 2022, up from Rs 2.3 bn a year ago.

Segment wise revenue

Tata Metaliks manufactures pig iron and ductile iron pipes.

The company's revenue from pig iron segment grew 276% to Rs 5.2 bn in the first quarter of June from Rs 1.4 bn in the same period last year.

Revenue from the ductile iron pipe segment climbed 86.8% to Rs 2.3 bn in June 2022 quarter against Rs 1.2 bn a year ago.

Demand for pig iron got impacted adversely in quarter one due to Covid second wave as major foundry clusters operated at 30-40% capacity.

However, the company achieved the highest ever quarterly deliveries on the back of a jump in exports.

Record sales volumes coupled with strong price realisation, along with stable blast furnace operations, raw materials cost optimisation, and higher coal injection have helped the company achieve its best ever quarterly profits.

Commenting on the results, Sandeep Kumar, managing director of Tata Metaliks said,

  • The company has delivered strong results primarily due to record sales and booming prices of pig iron.

    DI pipe business got impacted mainly due to Covid-induced restrictions by state governments.

    However, demand for DI pipes continues to remain robust on the back of significantly increased allocation in this year's Union budget for water infrastructure.

Covid-19 impact on the business

Tata Metaliks' production and sales were impacted during the quarter due to government imposed lockdown to contain the spread of second wave of Covid-19.

The company's operations have gradually come to pre-Covid level after ease in restrictions.

The company continues to be vigilant due to reintroduction of restrictions in some states due to resurgence of Covid-19 cases.

Update on merger of Tata Metaliks and Indian Steel & Wire Products with Tata Steel Long Product

On 13 November 2020, the boards approved the merger of Tata Metaliks and Indian Steel & Wire Products (ISWP) into Tata Steel Long Products.

According to a leading financial daily, a slight delay in merger is going on because the required approvals are needed from different agencies, like government agencies, stocks exchange and market regulator, and it is taking some time.

After approval from the stocks exchanges and the watchdog, the process will head to national company law tribunal (NCLT), which is dealing with several cases.

The managing director of Tata Metaliks, Sandeep Kumar, said,

  • We have some apprehension too that it will be delayed a bit, but we are trying to complete it as soon as possible.

    It is hard to provide any timeline because it is not sure that what time it will take in these agencies and the impact corona will have.

    But I believe that it will take at least six more months.
