Anil Agarwal, Chairman of Vedanta Resources plc (LSE:VED) told CNBC-TV18’s Menaka Doshi that Vedanta wants to create an Indian natural resources giant, which can compete with the likes of Rio Tinto. Speaking on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum 2015, Agarwal also added that Vedanta is still working on the merger plan for Cairn India Limited (BSE:532792), Sesa Sterlite Limited (BSE:500295) and Hindustan Zinc Ltd.

Hindustan Zinc Ltd. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results and Operating Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended December 31, 2014; Provides Capex Guidance for the Year Fiscal Year 2015

Hindustan Zinc Ltd. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results and operating results for the third quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of INR 38,040 million compared to INR 34,100 million a year ago. EBITDA was INR 20,890 million compared to INR 18,280 million a year ago. The increase in revenue was driven by higher zinc LME and lead & silver metal volumes, partly offset by lower silvers price and refined zinc volume. Profit from operations before other income, finance costs and exceptional items was INR 18,801.9 million against INR 16,140.7 million a year ago. Profit from ordinary activities before tax was INR 26,915.5 million against INR 20,280.2 million a year ago. Net profit for the period/year was INR 23,793.7 million against INR 17,227.2 million a year ago. Earnings per basic and diluted share were INR 5.63 compared to INR 4.08 a year ago. Mined metal production in third quarter was up by 14% sequentially and 10% year on year at 242,417 MT, as compared with 212,575 MT in previous quarter and 220,126 MT a year ago. The increase was as per the mine plan and driven by higher production from Rampura Agucha mine and better ore grades. For the nine months, the company reported net sales of INR 105,160 million compared to INR 98,700 million a year ago. Profit from operations before other income, finance costs and exceptional items was INR 48,237.7 million against INR 46,258.2 million a year ago. Profit from ordinary activities before tax was INR 70,374.3 million against INR 58,501.9 million a year ago. Net profit for the period/year was INR 61,805.6 million against INR 50,234.2 million a year ago. Earnings per basic and diluted share were INR 14.63 compared to INR 11.89 a year ago. EBITDA was INR 54,410 million compared to INR 52,380 million a year ago. For nine month period, mined metal production was 618,123 MT as compared to 679,597 MT in fiscal year 2014. The shortfall will be made up in fourth quarter, in-line with the mine plan and guidance of marginal growth in mined metal for the full year. Integrated refined zinc production was up by 11% sequentially on account of higher mined metal production. However, it was marginally down by 2% at 191,785 MT on year on year basis due to higher cathode stock, even as total refined zinc production was flat from a year ago. Production of integrated refined lead was marginally down from previous quarter at 24,890 MT and flat from corresponding period of last year. Integrated saleable silver production was up 3% sequentially and down 4% year on year to 70 MT. The year on year decline was due to accretion to WIP even as the grades from Sindesar Khurd were higher. Integrated silver production in fourth quarter will be better than third quarter and full year production will be close to last year. For the fiscal year 2015, the company expects capital expenditure would be less than $200 million, so the company is having slightly lower CapEx in the 2015 fiscal year.
