Commenting on the developments Mr Subhrakant Panda, Managing Director & CEO said: “Despite higher realisation for ferro chrome during the quarter, our performance was affected by lower output and higher costs. Moreover, ‘mark to market’ (MTM) provisioning on account of the recent Rupee depreciation also impacted the bottomline. However, stable demand and long term price trends augur well though quarter on quarter volatility may persist.”
Mr Jayant Misra, Director (Corporate) & COO added: “The 48 MVA furnace at Therubali has been restarted after relining & shell replacement although we have had to lower the budgeted output for the year. The Ferro Chrome industry is evenly poised right now and, as a large exporter, we will benefit from the currency movement.”
