The Company’s Q4FY23 standalone Net Revenue, EBITDA, and PAT were recorded at INR 9,444 crore, INR 1,097 crore, and INR 659 crore respectively.
Gurugram: Board of Directors of Jindal Stainless Limited (JSL) announced the Q4FY23 and Financial Year 2022-23 financial results on May 17, 2023. With the revocation of export duty, the Company ramped up export sales in Q4FY23 and consequently delivered the highest-ever quarterly sales volume of 507,632 MT.
The Company’s Q4FY23 standalone Net Revenue, EBITDA, and PAT were recorded at INR 9,444 crore, INR 1,097 crore, and INR 659 crore respectively. Net debt in the financial year stood at INR 2,591 crore and the net debt-to-equity ratio improved to ~0.2, despite the completion of organic CapEx.
Jindal Stainless posted a robust performance in Q4FY23 on the back of growing end-user industry demand in the domestic market. The core strengths of Jindal Stainless – are agility in sales and operations planning, extensive use of digitisation for faster and more efficient decision-making across the value chain (from sourcing to sales and delivery), a dynamic product mix, and R&D-powered product development based on market requirements – remained the key reasons behind this performance.
Subsidised and substandard foreign imports continued to distort the level playing field against Indian manufacturers, especially MSME producers. Specifically, imports from China and Indonesia witnessed a steep increase of 318% and 158% respectively from FY21 to FY23. After a detailed sunset review (SSR) investigation under these challenging circumstances, the Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) has recommended continuation of the 18.95% Countervailing Duty (CVD) on 200 Series of stainless steel flat products from China.Read Also : Aviation Ministry's initiatives for workforce expansion in DGCA, AERA and AAI
