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."
