Operating Highlights for FYl9 - Standalone
- Registered 14% growth in sales to Indian OE customers. This was supported by increased share of business and supplies to new models.
- Experienced 9% growth in sales to Indian Aftermarket segment owing to the successful introduction of new parts for the passenger car segment.
- Sales to international customers grew 13%. Robust demand for steering products partially offset by decline in die-casting business. There was lower off take on served models and a key customer program reaching end of production.
- Unfavourable mix, inflationary pressure on raw material and employee cost, resulted in 45 bps drop in EBITDA margin.
- Lower offtake in served models resulted in drop in sales.
- Rane Precision Die Casting Inc. (RPDC) improved delivery performance with customers and achieved lower employee cost. However, there were few setbacks as the business incurred higher cost on utilities, unexpected machine downtime resulting in increased production costs and higher repairs and tooling maintenance.
"FY19 was a difficult year for Rane (Madras) The strong performance of steeríng busrness was offset by challenges in die-casting buslness. The Indian die-casting buslness saw overall improvement in operational performance and further cost reduction is planned as the capacity utilization is expected to remain under stress in FY20. RPDC secured new business and the management team is working on operational improvements to ensure long term sustainability of the business." - L. Ganesh, Chairman, Rane Group.
