Excluding the forexrecovery included in other income of about Rs. 60 crore, the margins would be18%, 14% and 7% respectively. This improvement in the profitability can beattributed to factors like:1.commissioning of the plate cum coil mill which is enabling the company toenhance its external sales in both API and non API categories and hencecontributing to its bottomline2.commissioning of double jointing and coating facilities in Arkansas USA, whichis doing the coating and jointing jobs of the bare pipes which were previouslydone by other players previously3.replacement of high cost debt with low cost debt and QIP money.
