Cement Business

The cement business delivered sales volume growth of 8% during the quarter on a YoY basis driven by stronger demand trends and greater focus on premium products.

Despite rising prices of slag, petcoke and diesel, our continued emphasis on productivity measures, improved raw material mix and source mix optimization helped partially offset higher input costs which resulted in improved performance during this quarter.

Fixed costs, Selling General & Administrative expenses (SG&A) were lower on a YoY basis.

Ready Mix Concrete

The company's ready mix concrete business registered significant growth in volumes of 15% during the year through focus on profitable construction segments and value added solutions delivered to large projects . Eighteen new plants set up during the year contributed to the volume growth.

Dividend

The Board of Directors has recommended payment of dividend at Rs. 14/- per share of Rs. 10/- each aggregating Rs. 316.94 Crores (including tax on dividend), with a dividend payout of 32%, keeping in view the proposed expansion plans.

Outlook

In the recently announced budget 2019, the Government has indicated its commitment to further augment the infrastructure sector (railways, roads, highways and irrigation projects). Government's concerted efforts to increase investment across several sectors will have a favorable impact which will stimulate cement demand and boost economic growth. This will open up more opportunities and Cement as a core sector will continue to benefit from the India growth story.
