Registers robust growth of 143% YoY in Standalone profit before tax, the highest since inception

HYDERABAD, India, May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Nava Bharat Ventures Limited (NBVL), with diversified businesses in metals, energy, mining, healthcare and commercial agriculture, announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ending 31st March 2022.

The Company reported robust growth in its standalone operations during FY22, backed by solid traction in manganese alloy business in both export and domestic markets. Ferrochrome conversion continued its stable performance and provided stability in the overall earnings. The power division has witnessed a remarkable improvement, backed by the resumption of its two IPPs, Odisha (60MW) and NBEIL (150MW).

The Company has won the legal case concerning its urban land bank in eastern Hyderabad, further paving the way for the monetisation of this asset.

Financial Performance – Standalone Operations FY22

  • Optimum production and higher realisations for manganese alloys, coupled with robust power operations, especially after restarting of Odisha 60MW IPP enacted the strong standalone performance for FY22. The profit before tax grew by 143% YoY for FY22.
    • Ferro Alloys Revenue grew by 50%YoY

      i) This growth was led by both volume and realisation improvements. The Company's strategic split between export sales and domestic sales fetched better average realisations for its manganese alloys division in FY22. Yearly contract for manganese ore and advance procurement helped the Company obtain better margins.

      ii) Ferro Chrome conversion operations demonstrated a strong recovery on the volumes front. Conversion volumes were 16% higher YoY.

    • The power division reported 62% YoY in Revenue
      i) 60MW IPP of its 150MW in Odisha has been operational since June 2021, contributing significantly to the standalone power business. Competitive marginal cost in Odisha helped the Company improve upon merchant power sales on an opportunistic basis. On the QoQ front as well, higher generation helped in elevating overall standalone power revenue

      ii) Captive Consumption of power units (114MW) was higher by 6% YoY; Merchant sale quantities were higher by 42% YoY reflecting the sector trend in FY 22. Along with higher volumes, better price realisation aided the revenue growth

  • The Company reported a 123% increase in EBITDA YoY due to better efficiency in operations. EBITDA margins for Q4YF22 stood at 38.2% versus 29.0% in Q4FY21. For FY22, margins stood at 36.4% versus 26.9% in FY21. The Ferro Alloys division predominantly led such an increase.

Mr. Ashwin Devineni, the CEO of the Company, commented on the results, saying, "It is particularly gratifying to be celebrating the Golden Jubilee when  the future for our business looks so  promising. Our FY22 performance is a testimony of our 50 years of continued efforts. The Company's Standalone operations have been the pillars of growth and sustainability. The Company's Standalone operations have been performing well with an all-around improvement. Company Ferro Alloys and Power divisions reported a strong performance despite a challenging macro environment in terms of geopolitical concerns, raw material inflation etc. On the International operations front, Zambian power operations remained stable with continued improvement in merchant coal sales. Management foresees a robust demand for energy in Southern Africa and plans on taking strategic decisions to capitalise on the opportunity. We are also happy to share that our monetisation plans of idle assets are progressing well especially concerning the urban land parcel in eastern Hyderabad. The legal hurdle regarding the land is behind us, the Company is exploring the best possible options to maximise the returns on it. The Company has declared a dividend of INR 6.00 per share, i.e. 300% for FY22, and further continues to explore more opportunities to enhance shareholder value further."
