"HPCL reported a 38.4% YoY degrowth in consolidated gross revenue to ₹45,946 crore for Q1FY21, due to fall in total sales of products (including exports) by 24.5% YoY to 7.62 million metric tons. Consolidated EBIDTA for the quarter stood at ₹4,361 crore up by 163.3% YoY. Consolidated net profit for the quarter came in above street estimates at ₹2,253 crore as compared to profit of ₹878 crore in the corresponding quarter previous year. Company reported GRM of USD 0.04 per bbl for the quarter as compared to USD 0.75 per bbl in Q1FY20. Sales were adversely impacted in the month of April and May due to the lockdowns though they have improved substantially by June. While the revenue for the quarter came in below street expectations EBIDTA and profits were above expectations driven by inventory gains and better than expected performance by the marketing division. We believe that there will be a durable improvement in demand only in the second half of FY21 while GRM's will remain subdued in the near future."
