Hindustan Zinc Limited Announces Unaudited Earnings and Production Results for the First Quarter Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2016

Hindustan Zinc Limited announced unaudited earnings and production results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales/income from operations of INR 35,958.0 million compared to INR 29,626.5 million a year ago. Basic and diluted earnings per share were INR 4.55 against INR 3.83 a year ago. Profit from operations before other income, finance costs and exceptional items was INR 14,874.3 million against INR 11,501.2 million a year ago. Profit from ordinary activities before tax was INR 20,495.4 million against INR 18,598.9 million a year ago. Net Profit for the period was INR 19,208.0 million against INR 16,176.7 million a year ago. EBITDA was INR 16,720 million against INR 13,520 million a year ago. The increase in revenue was driven by higher zinc volumes and LME prices and rupee depreciation. During the quarter, EBITDA increased by 26% from a year ago to INR 16,980 million, the increase was due to higher revenues and lower cost of production partly offset by a onetime expense related to renewable energy purchase obligation for earlier years, higher royalty compared to last year and DMF provisioning. The positive impact of higher operating profit was partly offset by lower treasury income, which was in account of lowering of the interest rates as also due to mark-to-market losses on a small portion of portfolio. For the quarter, the company reported mined metal production of 232,000 MT against 163,000 MT a year ago. The increase was driven primarily by higher ore production from Rampura Agucha, Kayad and Sindesar Khurd mines. Mined metal production was lower by 14% sequentially, in-line with the mine plan. Total refined zinc was 187,000 MT against 141,000 MT a year ago. The company reiterated guidance for the fiscal year 2016, the company expects mine metal production to be higher from 2015. The guidance for the tax rate for 2016 would remain the same, that is in low teens.
