For the quarter, the company reported net sales/income from operations of INR 40,730 million compared to INR 35,890 million a year ago. The increase was driven by higher zinc sales & LME, partly offset by lower lead & silver prices and silver volumes. EBITDA was INR 19,780 million against INR 17,360 million a year ago. Profit after taxes was INR 19,970 million against INR 18,810 million a year ago. Earnings per share were INR 4.73 against INR 4.45 a year ago. Total income from operations was INR 41,256.8 million against INR 36,426.8 million a year ago. Profit from operations before other income, finance costs and exceptional items was INR 19,516.2 million against INR 15,511.1 million a year ago. Profit from ordinary activities before tax was INR 25,326.9 million against INR 21,195.2 million a year ago. For the year, the company reported net sales/income from operations of INR 145,890 million compared to INR 134,590 million a year ago. EBITDA was INR 74,200 million against INR 69,130 million a year ago. Profit after taxes was INR 81,780 million against INR 69,050 million a year ago. Earnings per share were INR 19.35 against INR 16.34 a year ago. For the full year, revenues increased by 8% to INR 145,890 million primarily on account of higher zinc LME and sulphuric acid realization, partly offset by lower silver prices and lower zinc & silver sales. Total income from operation was INR 147,883.9 million against INR 136,360.4 million a year ago. Profit from operations before other income, finance costs and exceptional items was INR 67,753.9 million against INR 61,152.6 million a year ago. Profit from ordinary activities before tax was INR 95,701.2 million against INR 79,697.1 million a year ago. For the quarter, integrated zinc and lead metal production were record high due to higher feed availability and enhanced smelter utilization. Integrated refined zinc, lead and silver production were up 21%, 14% and 9% year-over-year in the fourth quarter to 217 kt, 33 kt and 74 tonnes, respectively. For 2016, mined metal production is expected to be higher from fiscal year of 2015, while integrated refined metal production, including silver, will be significantly higher as will process the available mined metal inventory also. Accordingly, silver production will also be significantly higher, in the range of 350 tonnes to 400 tonnes. The cost of production, excluding royalty, is expected to remain stable. Capital expenditure is expected to remain in the region of $200 million to $225 million in the coming year, while the tax rate will continue to gradually move up, but will remain below the match rate.
