Hindalco Industries' revenue from operations dropped 7.51 percent to Rs 8667.52 crore in Q4 March 2016 over Q4 March 2015. The company attributed the decline in revenue to a sharp decline in both aluminium and copper realizations. In aluminium, the impact was much severe due to a sharp fall in local market premium and a sharp surge in imports of aluminium in the country.
The company said its operational performance was strong. A strong increase in aluminium volumes, a thrust on value addition across businesses, lower cost of raw materials and a weaker rupee helped the company partially offset the impact of a sharp fall in realizations. The bottom line was boosted by base effect. The company's bottom line in Q4 March 2015 was adversely impacted by a non-recurring expenditure of Rs 146.48 crore.
With regard to the future business outlook, Hindalco said that the uncertain global macros pose several challenges for the company. The management will continue its un-relented focus on operational excellence, enhanced value addition and cash conservation to tide over these circumstances.
A part of the Aditya Birla Group, Hindalco Industries is the world's largest aluminium rolling company and one of the biggest producers of primary aluminium in Asia. Its copper smelter is amongst the largest single location custom smelter globally.
