HEN fe500 had decided to use revenue and not market capitalisation as
the key marker for corporate performance, this was not a fashionable
decision. Market cap was the favourite criterion of all analyses. Allow us to say
that 2008’s stock market bloodbath showed how puzzling market cap can be as a
substantive indicator.
Market cap is important. But when markets are responding to global fear and
uncertainty, their verdict on a company can be bemusing. Revenue, on the other
hand, reflects the rewards of a company’s real business activities and can give
you a good idea of a company’s performance even the day after Lehmann
Brothers dies.
So, this edition of fe500 has a special significance—many of the corporates
present here may have taken a market cap battering. But they can still be judged
and found to have solid attributes.
The study, covering 2007-08, shows how the impact of the slowdown had begun
to set in. Profitability, especially of larger companies, remained high. However,
the sales growth at 17% was much lower than the 28% recorded in 2006-07.
The fe500 also profiles the top 15 companies in our list. There are a few notable
trends. Reliance Communication debuts on fe500—another indication of how big
the telecom story can become. And Bharti Airtel pushes established companies
like L&T out of the top 10. Most of the other big ones continue to hold their place.
But interestingly, the only FMCG firm to feature in the list is ITC. The company
has, over the years, diversified and invested a great deal in the Indian rural
sector. The rewards have just about started to come in.
There’s a bigger lesson here. As 2008-09 ends with evidence of dampened
urban demand, the focus is on rural demand, which seems to be in healthy shape.
The aam aadmi could be India Inc’s biggest friend in a slowdown.

A plateau after
accelerated growth
With higher GDP growth, the FE-500 registered an
18% sales surge in 2007-08

A

FTER a sparkling performance
in 2006-07, the Indian corporate
sector showed a slight dull
moment in its performance during
2007-08. Rising cost of raw materials
and energy cost placed some obstacles
in their growth path.
Speeding ahead at a rate of 17.69%,
the FE 500’s net sales reached a high of
Rs 19.32 lakh crore. Though, in comparison with 2006-07, the sales growth was
significantly low. The FE 500’s sales
growth was 28.02% in the year 2006-07.
The top ten, in terms of composite
ranks, seemed slightly slower than
the FE 500 as a whole. Their sales
growth, at 15.20%, was lower than the
overall FE 500, which recorded a collective growth of 17.69%. In absolute
terms also, the top ten ended 2007-08
with a lower record: their aggregate
sales as a percentage of the total
FE 500 saw a marginal decrease
from 36.26% in the year before to
35.49% in 2007-08.
Barring Larsen & Toubro, all the
other nine who graced the super
league in 2006-07, also showed up in
the next year. Larsen & Toubro, the
top tenner of 2006-07 was edged out
by BPCL in 2007-08. At the top spot in
2007-08 was Reliance Industries. In
the slot just behind it was stablemate ONGC; the third runner-up
was NTPC.
The other seven top tenners, in
descending order of their composite ranks were: Indian Oil Corp,
Bharti Airtel, SAIL, Reliance
Communications, Tata Steel, BPCL
and BHEL.
Within the top ten group some
shifting of positions has taken
place. Thus, Bharti Airtel, sixth in

6 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

2006-07, moved up to the fifth position
and Sail lost the position from fifth to
the sixth. BHEL lost ground and
declined, from the eighth to the tenth.
The FE 500, clubbed in five groupsthe first 100, the second 100, the third
100, fourth 100 and the rest were neck
to neck. So, comparisons, if any, have
to be made within the FE 500. As against
an overall sales growth rate of 17.69%
for the 500 as a group, the sub-groups
of 100 each recorded growth rates of
16.75, 20.01, 23.78,18.24 and 19.34%
respectively during 2007-08. The top 100
group (according to composite rankings) saw seven new companies making
an entry in 2007-08.The highest rate of
rise in net sales in the first set was
recorded by DLF (388.13%), Lanco Infratech (190.68%), Punj Lloyd (99.79%),
HDIL (97.75%), Sesa Goa (76.45%) and
Siemens (71.78%).
The laggards in the top 100 were

National Aluminium (-15.64%), Tata
Communication (-12.36%), Dr Reddys
Lab (-11.53%), Ambuja Cements
(-8.78%), Hindustan Zinc (-7.97%)
Moser Baer (-6%) and MTNL (-3.81%).
Around 11 companies in the first
group of 100 recorded more than a 50%
increase in net sales in 2007-08. The second set of 100 companies grew at
20.01%, higher than the FE 500’s average. Their combined net sales increased from Rs 1.86 lakh crore (on an
annualised basis) in 2006-07 to Rs 2.23
lakh crore in 2007-08. The second set
saw many changes, but the more noteworthy among them were the 16 new
entrants from the lower ranks in 200708.The highest rate of rise in net sales
was recorded by Era Infra Engineering
(91.93%), followed by KS Oils (90.93%)
and Omaxe ( 90.20%).
Among the poor performers in this
group was Ballarpur Inds (-56.1%).
Compared to the first two, the third
group of 100 companies did perform
well in terms of net sales growth.
Aggregate net sales of the set increased by 23.78% from Rs 97,484
crore in 2006-07 to Rs 1,20,665 crore
in 2007-08. In terms of individual
performance, eight companies recorded declines in the third set.
Of them, Fert & Chem. Travancore
(-41.15%), followed by Bannari
Amman Sugar (-17.65%), Shree
Renuka Sugars (-6.90%) and OCL
(-5.44%). Hind National Glass
(98.14%),
Koutons
Retail
(I)
(97.18%), BGR Energy Systems
(94.14%), BL Kashyap & Sons
(90.91%), Bombay Rayon (89.24%),
Consolidated Const Consortium
(70.43%) and Nava Bharat Ventures
(61.88%) were among those registering significant sales growth.
There were 23 new members in

fe 500 overallperformance

the set in 2007-08. Not all the new members however, have any cause for jubilation. As many as nine of them are
rejects from the second set, including
such big names like JK Cement, Shree
Precoated Steels, Matrix Laboratories,
JK Tyre Industries and Kingfisher
Airlines. And 14 others, which were in
the fourth set in 2006-07, entered the
third set of companies in 2007-08.
Mention may be made of Hind National
Glass, Gulf Oil Corp., Chettinad
Cement Corp., Ramsarup Industries, Koutons Retail (I), Electrotherm (I) and MindTree.
The fourth set of 100 companies
registered the lowest growth in sales
compared to the second and third
set, indicating that at the bottom of
the corporate heap, there is serious
lack of enterprise. The fourth group
of companies grew at 18.24%, and
their combined net sales increased
from Rs 74,114 crore (on an annualised basis) in 2006-07 to Rs 87,629
crore in 2007-08. The highest rate of
rise in net sales was recorded by
Sanwaria Agro Oil (110.60%), followed by ICSA(I) (101.72%), Spicejet
(101.15%), HBL Power System
(89.02%), Godavari Power&Ispat
(88.81%), Amara Raja Batteries
(82.69%), Ankur Drugs (80.41%) and
Bharati Shipyard (78.27%).
Most interesting part of the FE
8 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

500 is the sales growth of fifth and final
set of 100 companies. The fifth group of
companies grew at 19.34%, which is
higher than first hundred and fourth
hundred groups and their combined
net sales increased from Rs 53,980 crore
in 2006-07 to Rs 64,418 crore in 2007-08.
Looking at the FE 500 as a whole,
it is obvious that individual performance was substantially determined
by the fortunes of the industry in which
they operated. The fastest growing

industries in 2007-08 were dry cells,
steel-sponge iron, construction, retailing, glass and glass products, ship
breaking and repairing, steel-pig iron,
solvent extractions, engineering and
air conditioning.
The slowest growing industries
were aluminium and products, textilesprocessing, cycles and accessories,
packaging, biotech, tea, pharmaceutical-multinationals, automobiles LCVs,
HCVs and passenger cars, computershardware and compressors/ drilling equipment. Given the perky
overall growth rate of 17.69% for the
FE 500, asset growth was significantly higher than the sales
growth. The combined total assets
of the FE 500 (according to sales)
rose by 28.17% from Rs 16.90 lakh
crore in 2006-07 to Rs 21.66 lakh crore
in 2007-08.
While building assets, the FE 500
were more concerned about profits.
Gross profits grew higher than
sales. The total gross profits of the
FE 500 rose from Rs 2.78 lakh crore
(on an annualised basis) in 2006-07 to
Rs 3.34 lakh crore in 2007-08; a 20.14%
jump. The top 10 of the FE 500
accounted for a major share of the
booty (Rs 1.31 lakh crore), leaving Rs
2.03 lakh crore to be divided up
among the remaining 490.
ONGC, the numero uno profit-

maker of the year, notched up gross
profits of Rs 35,381 crore, a 6.95% increase from Rs 33,083 crore in the previous year. The other nine companies in
the top ten list in terms of gross profits
were Reliance Industries (Rs 27,810
crore), Indian Oil Corp (Rs 12,761
crore), SAIL (Rs 12,674 crore), NTPC (Rs
12,158 crore), Bharti Airtel (Rs 10,126
crore), Tata Steel (Rs 7,882 crore),
Hindustan Zinc (Rs 6,283 crore),TCS
(Rs 5,789 crore) and Infosys Technologies (Rs 5,646 crore).
Reliance Industries topped in
terms of net worth during 2007-08, it
raised net worth to Rs 79,766 crore, a
24.70% rise from Rs 63,967 crore in
the previous year. The other companies in the Top 10 list in terms of
net worth were ONGC (Rs 70,617
crore), NTPC (Rs 52,638 crore),
Indian Oil Corp (Rs 41,086 crore),
Tata Steel (Rs 27,300 crore), Reliance
Communications (Rs 24,840 crore),
Sail (Rs 23,063 crore), Bharti Airtel
(Rs 20,241 crore), Hindalco Inds
(Rs 17,296 crore) and Power Grid
Corp (Rs 13,507 crore).
The aggregate net worth of the
FE 500 increased by 28.48% from
Rs 7.74 lakh crore in 2006-07 to Rs 9.95
lakh crore in 2007-08. Four companies, namely Tata Teleservices
(Mah), Lloyds Steel, Spic and Balaji
Distilleries had a negative net worth

in absolute terms.
As for market capitalisation, performance was dismal, the aggregate market capitalisation of the FE 500
corporates decreased by 47.41% from
Rs 42.29 lakh crore as January 30, 2008 to
Rs 22.24 lakh crore as on 30 January
2009.The highest decline in market capitalisation among the FE 500 companies was witnessed in the case of Vishal
Retail (-92.62%), Unitech (-91.67%),
Madhucon Projects (-91.38%), ABG

Shipyard (-90.66%), Bharati Shipyard
(-90.16%), BL Kashyap&Sons(-89.96%),
Shree Precoated Steel(-89.8%), Ansal
Prop.&Infra (-89.44%) and Subhash
Projects (-89.08%).
In contrast, 18 companies showed
an increase in market capitalisation
during the study period. Mention may
be made of GlaxoSmithkline Pharma
(36.09%), Hindustan Unilever (31.18%),
Hero Honda Motors (27.90%), Castrol(I)
(23.32%), Jindal Poly Film (19.91%),
Kajaria Ceramics (17.16%) and
HPCL (14.31%).
The top 10 in terms of market
capitalisation in 2007-08 were Reliance Industries (Rs 2,08,719 crore),
NTPC (Rs 1,56,251 crore), ONGC (Rs
1,40,780 crore), Bharti Airtel (Rs
1,20,320 crore), Infosys Technologies (Rs 74,758 crore), MMTC (Rs
72,412 crore), ITC (Rs 67,801 crore),
NMDC (Rs 66,032 crore), BHEL (Rs
64,638 crore) and Hindustan
Unilever (Rs 56,937 crore).
The market capitalisation of
the top 10 companies (in terms of
composite rank) decreased by
36.95% to Rs 8.41 lakh crore on
January 30, 2009 from Rs 13.34 lakh
crore on January 30, 2008. The share
of top 10 market capitalisation in
the FE 500 increased from 31.54% on
January 30, 2008 to 37.81% on
January 30, 2009.

EGINNING as a small textile company, Reliance Industries Limited
(RIL) has crossed several milestones to become India’s largest private
sector company, with businesses in the
energy and materials value chain. The
group’s annual revenues are today in
excess of Rs 1,76,800 crore ($34 billion).
RIL is a Fortune Global 500 company.
RIL’s net profit for the financial year
ended March 2008 stood at Rs 19,458 crore,
an increase of 63% as compared to Rs
11,943 crore in fiscal 2007. It also posted a
turnover of Rs 1,39,269 crore for fiscal
2008, an 18% increase.
Starting with textiles, Reliance pursued a strategy of backward vertical integration—in polyester, fibre intermediates, plastics, petrochemicals, petroleum
refining and oil and gas exploration and
production—to be fully integrated along
the materials and energy value chain.
The group’s activities span exploration and production of oil and gas,
petroleum refining and marketing, petrochemicals (polyester, fibre intermediates, plastics and chemicals), textiles,
retail and special economic zones.
Reliance enjoys global leadership in its
businesses, being the largest polyester
yarn and fibre producer in the world and
among the top five to ten producers in the
world in major petrochemical products.
RIL is likely to begin gas production
from the Krishna-Godavari basin by midApril. K-G basin in the Bay of Bengal to
Jamnagar in Gujarat, where it has set up
the world’s largest petroleum refinery
and has a capacity of 33 million tones per
annum. Reliance’s manufacturing division at Naroda, Ahmedabad is one of the
largest and most modern textile complexes in the world. The company’s flagship brand ‘Vimal’ is one of the most
trusted brands of premium textiles in the
country. Apart from being a major supplier of fabrics with all the leading US
and European brands, Reliance proposes
to enter into garment supplies, ensuring
a one point solution for their needs. The
textile division has achieved a major

breakthrough in the domestic and
American automotive markets aimed at
obtaining a foothold in the world’s autotextile segment, currently worth $ 5 billion. The manufacturing facility at
Naroda, Ahmedabad has completed its
modernisation and upgradation.
Reliance Retail Limited (RRL), a subsidiary of RIL, was set up to lead Reliance
Group’s foray into organised retail. RRL
has embarked upon an implementation
plan to build state-of-the-art retail infrastructure in India, which includes a
multi-format store strategy of opening
neighbourhood convenience stores,
hypermarkets, specialty and wholesale
stores across India.
While falling demand for fuel and lower gains from processing crude oil has
caused a slump in profits, RIL managed to
prevent a drastic profit fall by posting better gross refining margins (GRMs). For
the third quarter for the current financial
year,RILhadpostedanetprofitdipof 10%
to Rs 3,501 crore (excluding exceptional
items), compared to Rs 3,882 crore in Q3 of
the previous year. GRMs did not fall as
much as feared, dropping to $10 per barrel
against $15.4 per barrel on a year-on-year
basis. RIL’s GRM in the quarter was
higher by $6.4 per barrel than the benchmark Singapore Complex GRM.
Mukesh Ambani, CMD, RIL had said,
“This was one of the most challenging
quarters with volatility in prices and
margins. Producers and consumers are
coming to terms with slower global trade
and economic outlook. Reliance performed commendably with high operating rates. We reached an important mark
in the start up of the RPL refinery.”
In February 2009, RIL merged with its
refining subsidiary Reliance Petroleum
Limited (RPL) and offered a swap ratio
of 1:16. RIL will issue 69.2 million new
shares to shareholders of RPL in order
to buy back the company and will have
3.7 million shareholders after the
merger. RIL’s equity capital will rise to Rs
1,643 crore and the promoter’s holdings
will fall by 2%. With the merger, RIL
becomes the world’s fifth largest polypropylene producer.

12 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

F one were to look at the accolades this
premier Navratna has garnered, it
would be an extremely long list.
However, here are a few noteworthy—
numero uno oil exploration and production company in Asia as per Platts 250
Global Energy Companies List in 2007.
Ranked 20th amongst the top global publicly-listed energy companies as per PFC
Energy 50 in January 2008. And, the only
company from India in the Fortune
Magazine’s list of the world’s most
admired companies in 2007.
This speaks volumes about the kind of
giant that the nation can count on. And,
little wonder then that it is right up there
amongst the FE 500 list. And the financial
year 2007-08 saw the company record a
highest ever revenue of Rs 60,137 crore, a
net profit of Rs 16,701.6 crore, and distributed Rs 32 per share or a 320% dividend. As a group, the company crossed
the one trillion mark in 2007-08. This
again was a record of sorts.
However, the year marks the increased intensity in exploratory efforts by the
company and it made significant discoveries in deep water and ultra-deepwater provinces in the east coast of India.
“This focus has enabled us to maintain a
reserve replacement ratio (RRR) of more
than one consistently for the past four
years,” said chairman and managing
director RS Sharma.
The company had also made 38
project acquisitions in 18 countries.
And despite the handsome payout, ONGC
has an enviable cash position. Cash and
bank balance increased 23.8%, from
Rs 15070 crore 2006-07 to Rs 18,650 crore in
2007-08 and this constituted 24.1% and
18.3% of reported net worth and total
assets respectively. Such a cash position
puts ONGC in a position of strength to
make global acquisitions. And surely,
it has been making its international
presence felt.
ONGC operates in the international
markets through its wholly-owned subsidiary OVL, through which it has
acquired interests in several oil and gas

blocks. OVL operates in 15 countries with
44 properties and has produced around
8.8 MMT of oil and oil equivalent gas last
year. Therefore, the percentage of overseas production to total production of
ONGC has increased from 7.23% in 200203 to 15.4% in 2007-08.
The company has an extremely strong
overseas plan and a similar one on
the domestic front. OVL at the end of 2008
has completed the Imperial Energy
acquisition for $1.9 billion. And recently,
the board approved an investment of
about Rs 3,500 crore for investing in
additional facilities at its oilfields in
Assam and Western Offshore to boost
output and also reported five oil and gas
discoveries.
The third quarter results, however,
were rather disappointing. Thanks to the
fall in crude prices and under-recovery.
Due to this, the company reported a substantial drop in standalone net profit for
the quarter ended December 2008.
During the quarter, the profit of the company declined 43.32% to Rs 24,74.81 crore
from Rs 43,66.54 crore in the same quarter
previous year. Net sales declined 17.07%
to Rs 12,538.6 crore, while total income for
the quarter fell 14.55% to Rs 13,657.39
crore, when compared with the prior
year period.
However, the depreciating rupee is
expected to boost earnings in the short
run, its ambitious plans and vision in the
long-run. Every single rupee fall against
the dollar causes the standalone earnings per share of the company to increase
by more than Rs 3, say analysts. As for the
long-run, RS Sharma said, “As we look
into the future, it is strewn with opportunities. Even though ONGC is committed
to concentrate on its core business area of
E&P, it shall continue to capture growth
opportunities in integration projects and
retain its leadership position in the
energy sector of the country.”
In this, the company is also looking
at new vistas in the nuclear power generation area. It would be looking at joint
ventures to tap the uranium potential
and further enhance its role in India’s
energy security.

TPC, the country’s largest power
company, has emerged as an
‘Integrated Power Major’, with a
significant presence in the entire value
chain of power generation business. At
present, it has a generating capacity of
29,894 MW, from coal and gas. But the
company has also diversified into hydro
power, coal mining, power equipment
manufacturing, oil and gas exploration,
power trading and distribution. The public sector company, incorporated in the
year 1975 and ranked 411th in the Forbes
list of ‘World’s 2000 largest companies,
2007’, has embarked on plans to become a
75,000 MW company by 2017.
The company contributes to 19.11%
of the country’s capacity and accounted
for 28.51% of the total power generation
in India in 2007-08. On March 20,
RS Sharma, CMD of the company, said
that it would add 3,000 megawatts of
capacity in FY 2009-10. This expansion
target is around 70% more than what the
company would achieve in 2008-09. The
company undertakes many pro-active
measures to protect the environment and
ecology around its projects. It was the
first among power utilities in India to
start Environment Impact Assessment
(EIA) studies and reinforced it with periodic environmental audits and reviews.
NTPC is also planning to increase the

Indian Oil too is
seeking quantum leaps
in its core business,
adding on new and
emerging segments
on the way.
SARTHAK BEHURIA
Chairman, IOC

14 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

HE India growth story so far and
even henceforth rests on the fortunes of several corporations.
Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) is definitely one of them. The sheer magnitude
of operations and its reach make it a critical element in India’s growth prospects.
Consider this, in the financial year
2007-08, the IndianOil group sold 59.29
million tonne of petroleum products,
including 1.74 million tonne of natural
gas, and exported 3.33 million tonne of
petroleum products. It, along with its
group of companies, owns and operates
10 of India’s 19 refineries with a combined refining capacity of 60.2 million
metric tonne per annum (or 1.2 million
barrels per day). These include two
refineries of subsidiary Chennai Petroleum Corporation Ltd (CPCL) and one of
Bongaigaon Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (BRPL). The corporation’s
cross-country network of crude oil and
product pipelines, spanning about 9,300
km is the largest in the country.
In fact, 2007-08 saw the culmination of
a major restructuring exercise in the
form of a seamless merger of the marketing subsidiary, IBP, with Indian Oil.
“Integration of the countrywide assets
and operations of both the companies led
to the formation of a larger and more formidable marketing network of over
34,000 touch points for Indian Oil,” said
Sarthay Behuria, chairman, Indian Oil
in the annual general meeting. “A similar
exercise is underway for the merger of
the refining subsidiary, Bongaigaon
Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd, which
will bring synergy in our refining operations” he added.
Indian Oil’s revenues for the year
2007-08 reached a new high of Rs 2,47,479
crore, up by 12.1% as compared to the previous year. The net profit was Rs 6,963
crore, after considering the compensation of Rs 18,997 crore in the form of the
special oil bonds issued by the Government of India. The total net under-recovery on account of price under-realisation
on sale of the four sensitive products in

the year 2007-08 was Rs 9,774 crore, after
considering the oil bonds and burdensharing by upstream companies.
Among new businesses, natural gas
marketing and petrochemicals together
generated revenues of nearly Rs 4,700
crore for the year 2007-08. The petrochemical plants set new records in production during the year to match
increased sales. The year also marked
expansion of the corporation’s upstream
portfolio to over 20 oil and gas assets in
India and abroad.
In fact, Indian Oil has been creating
assets internationally as well and most of
them are present in value-added product
segments. Indian Oil (Mauritius) has
developed its presence in the competitive
aviation business. Lanka IOC looks at
widening the lubricants business.
Similarly, Indian Oil Middle East
FZE concentrates on blending lubricants
and marketing petroleum products in
the Middle East, Africa and CIS countries. The combined turnover of all
subsidiaries for the year 2007-08 was
Rs 41,831 crore, registering a growth of
11.2% over the previous year. Their combined profit was Rs 1,524 crore, an
increase of 109% over the previous year.
The joint ventures also fared well during
the year, with their aggregate turnover
reaching Rs. 8,245 crore, representing a
31.6% growth over the previous year.
Their combined profits registered a 64%
jump to Rs 595 crore
Going ahead there are ambitious
plans. The management envisages
investments of over Rs. 50,000 crore currently and plans to take the group refining capacity from 60.2 to 80 million tonne
per annum by the year 2011-12. Similarly,
IndianOil will add about 4,000 km of new
pipelines by the year 2012. “In this, we see
gas pipelines as a high-growth area,” said
Behuria. He also mentioned, “Indian
Oil’s new businesses assume great significance for its growth plans for the future,
with its current marketing margins taking a hit on account of soaring prices of
crude oil in the international market and
incomplete pass-through of product
prices to the customers.”

HARTI Airtel Ltd, the country’s
largest telecom service provider,
is a group company of Bharti
Enterprises led by Sunil Bharti Mittal.
It is Asia’s leading integrated telecom
services provider with operations in
India and Sri Lanka and an aggregate of
over 93.8 million customers as of end
February 2009, consisting of 91.11 million mobile customers. Bharti Airtel Ltd
has been voted India’s most innovative
company in a survey conducted by The
Wall Street Journal.
The company commands a market
share of 32.88% in the GSM segment.
Bharti Airtel is structured into three
strategic business units—mobile services, telemedia services and enterprise
services. The mobile business offers services in India and Sri Lanka. The telemedia business provides broadband and
telephone services in 95 cities. Last year
it forayed into DTH and IPTV services.
The enterprise business provides end-toend telecom solutions to corporate customers and national and international
long distance services to carriers. All
these services are provided under the
Airtel brand. Airtel’s high-speed optic
fibre network spans over 90,205 kms covering all the major cities in the country.
The company has two international landing stations in Chennai that connects two
submarine cable systems—i2i to Singapore and SEA-ME-WE-4 to Europe.
Bharti Airtel recently announced key
apex level organisational changes aimed
at laying the foundation for the company’s next phase of growth. As per it
Manoj Kohli, CEO and joint managing
director, Bharti Airtel will now increasingly focus on strategy development, governance and organisation development.
He will also provide additional focus on
building the B2B powerhouse. Sanjay
Kapoor has been elevated from president
—mobile services to a newly created position of deputy CEO. In his new role,
Sanjay will lead the mobile, telemedia
and DTH businesses. Atul Bindal will
take over as president—mobile services.

K Srinivas who was executive director
(east)—mobile services and in-charge of
Sri Lanka operations will take over as
joint president—telemedia services.
According to Sunil Bharti Mittal,
chairman and managing director, Bharti
Airtel, the company continues to lead the
telecom growth story adding customer
and revenue market share despite
intense competition. “Bharti’s strategy
of extensive roll out ahead of competition, especially in new villages, has
yielded rich dividends. Our launch in Sri
Lanka has received a huge response and
despite coming in as the fifth operator we
hope to be in a leadership position in the
coming years. The customer response to
the launch of our world class DTH and
IPTV services has been encouraging.
Bharti Airtel is well placed to capitalise
on the huge telecom opportunity that
India offers.” Last year, the company
launched its mobile services in Sri Lanka
under the Airtel brand on a state-of-theart 3.5G network. The company plans to
invest around $200 million in its Sri
Lanka operations.
The vision is that of emerging as a
conglomerate by 2020 and the company
has thus forayed into the retail sector.
Bharti Retail Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bharti Enterprises, launched
their first “Easyday market”. It also
launched neighbourhood format stores
“Easy Day” in Ludhiana, Punjab.
The group, which had also forayed
into the insurance sector with Bharti
AXA Investment Managers, a joint venture between Bharti Group and AXA
Group, last year announced that it is targeting assets worth $10 billion under its
management by 2012. The company in
association with Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative ltd (IFFCO) also announced the launch of a joint venture
company IFFCO Kisan Sanchar Ltd
(IKSL), to provide a boost to Indian agriculture and the rural economy. The JV
company will harness the power of telecom to add value to the farm sector and
empower the rural farmer by giving him
access to vital information, which will
enhance his livelihood and quality of life.

Optimising capacity to SAIL
empower the nation
Rishi Raj

S

TATE-OWNED Steel Authority of
India Ltd (SAIL) is the country’s
largest steel maker. It was among
the leading profit earning corporates of
the country in 2007-08 with an annual
profit (before tax) of Rs 11,469 crore and a
turnover of Rs 45,555 crore. The company
paid its shareholders 37% dividend for
the year, amounting to over Rs 1,500 crore.
Sail set new performance landmarks
in financial year 2007-08 with high production and productivity, market-driven
product-mix, higher value-added/special steel production and by taking several initiatives towards cost reduction.
Strong market demand for steel supported best-ever sales of 12.3 million
tonne during the year, with substantial
growth in sales of value-added products
like long rails of 130/260 metre, plates, HR
coils and medium structurals. Sales were
also boosted by the presence of SAIL’s
authorised dealers in all districts of the
country, with an addition of about 1,200
new dealers during 2007-08. Sail thus
became the first steel company in the
country to have a distribution network
covering each and every district.
During 2007-08, Sail recorded the highest-ever saleable steel production of 13
million tonne with a capacity utilisation
of 118%. Of this, 8.9 million tonne was
produced through the energy-efficient
continuous casting route with capacity
utilisation of 128%. Production of special quality/value-added products went
up to 3.5 million tonne. Over 30 new products were developed for special applications, including high corrosion/earth
quake resistant TMT rebars for construction, high tensile plates for hydel power
projects and high yield strength
(SAILMA 550 HI) plates, SUP-11A/9 grade
spring steel for the auto sector, environment-friendly C-5 coated CRNO sheets,
armour steel plates for the defence sector,
boron-treated aluminium-killed low carbon steel, vanadium micro-alloyed rails
for application in tracks for higher axle
load at high speed, low carbon HR coils
with titanium for extra deep drawing.

The company also achieved the lowestever energy consumption at 6.95 giga
calories per tonne of crude steel and coke
rate at 533 kgs per tonne of hot metal in
2007-08 by fine-tuning operational efficiencies. Thrust on cost reduction
resulted in savings of over Rs 300 crore.
Hence SAIL was able to partially offset
the price increase of inputs such as coal,
zinc, nickel, freight charges.
SAIL implemented measures, including introduction of the Integrated
Project Management system, adoption of
latest monitoring techniques and employee empowerment, to ensure smooth
implementation of its expansion and
modernisation plan, which will take
SAIL’s annual hot metal production
capacity to over 26 million tonne from the
level of 14 million tonne by 2011-12.
“SAIL has been at the forefront in
developing new grades of quality steel
including for projects of national importance. Some of the products during 200708 include earthquake resistant TMT and
wire rods with improved corrosion resistance, vanadium micro-alloyed rails for
application in tracks for higher axle load
at high speed, steel armour plates for the
defence sector,” says SK Roongta, chairman SAIL. Initiatives were taken by the
company during 2007-08 to ensure security of raw material supplies and expand
business. These included the decision to
install Steel Processing Units in states
where SAIL has no plants, equity participation in International Coal Ventures
Ltd, a special purpose vehicle formed
with four other PSUs for acquisition of
coal assets in overseas territories, and
MoUs with MOIL and Tata Steel.
Initiatives in other areas included setting
up of two JV companies for production of
slag cement and a decision to install a
wind power plant of 50 MW capacity in
Tamil Nadu, expansion of JV captive
power plants by 1,250 MW at Bhilai and
Bokaro, alliance with POSCO, Korea.
SAIL spent around Rs 120 crore on
CSR in 2007-08. It adopted 79 villages
across eight states as Model Steel Villages
for exclusive development of medical
facilities, education, roads, etc.

The demand for steel in
the developing world
will continue be an
important engine of
growth. It will be the
anchor material for
various sectors.
RATAN TATA
Chairman, Tata Group

20 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

HE year 2007-08 marked the 100
years of existence of India’s oldest
largest integrated private sector
steel
company—Tata
Steel
Ltd.
Established in 1907, Tata Steel today is
among the lowest cost producers of steel
in the world.
The present decade has marked several joint ventures for the company,
as well as some big ticket acquisitions,
especially that of UK’s Corus Plc in April
2007. With this acquisition, Tata Steel,
with a crude steelmaking capacity of 28.1
million tonne per annum, became the
sixth largest steel company in the world,
with a presence in several countries
across continents.
In the financial year 2007-08, Tata
Steel had included Corus’ financials in its
consolidated accounts for the first time.
Consolidated net sales for FY 2007-08
stood at Rs 1,31,536 crore ($33 billion). The
consolidated net profit was Rs 12,350
crore. On a stand alone basis, Tata Steel’s
net sales grew 12% to Rs 19,693.28 crore
against Rs 17,551.09 crore in FY 2007. Net
profit for the year was Rs 4,687.03 crore
against Rs 4,222.15 crore in FY 2007.
The company, during the year, also
completed its long-term financing
programme for its Corus acquisition.
Of the total enterprise value of $14.2
billion, the financing included around
$10.5 billion as bridge funding, the balance applied out of Tata Steel’s own cash
and borrowings.
Going ahead, Tata Steel’s long-term
raw material strategy will see the synergies of combined buying come into play.
Tata Steel meets all of its current iron ore
and 60% of its coal requirement for
Indian operations from its own mines.
While Tata Steel’s stand alone raw material security is 80%, it was 22% for Tata
Steel Group in 2007.
“With the global demand for finished
steel growing dramatically in the last
few years, the need for securing raw
materials efficiently and effectively has
become increasingly important,” said
Tata Steel’s group director (global miner-

als), Arun Baijal in the annual report.
In keeping with the group’s raw
material strategy, the company had
finalised the following agreements
in FY 2007-08. In November 2007, the
Tata Steel group entered into definitive
agreements with Riversdale Mining
Ltd for a 35% stake in Mozambique Coal
projects for a purchase consideration
of $84 million, where the group will
have the right to a 40% offtake for
coking coal.
In December 2007, the group entered
into a joint venture with Sodemi for an
85% stake for the development of an iron
ore project in Cote d’lvoire, with Sodemi
holding a 15% stake (Ivory Cost - iron ore
deposits). And in January 2008, Tata Steel
Group entered into a joint venture agreement with the shareholders of Al Rimal
Mining LLC for a 70% stake in the company (Oman limestone project).
Currently, the global steel industry
is going through unprecedented times.
Post the steep run up in the steel prices
beginning January 2008, steel prices
have collapsed over the last 3-4 months
owing to the sharp fall in the spot
prices and uncertainty over demand on
account of the adverse global macroeconomic factors.
Tata Steel’s long-term greenfield expansion plans at Jharkhand and Chattisgarh are on hold, except Orissa Phase I,
which is to be completed by 2011.
Meanwhile, Tata Steel enhanced
capacity from 5 MTPA to 7 MTPA during
the 1st half of FY2009 with the setting
up of the new H-Blast furnace. The company expects to further raise its steel
capacity to 10 MTPA by December 2010
at Jamshedpur.
Going ahead, Tata Steel will continue
its cost competitiveness due to Indian
sources of raw material and skilled low
cost labour and will also implement rapid
low cost implementation programmes.
And, as the financial year 2008-09
unfolds, news that the company has
improved its production keeps pouring
in. It has recorded a 47% rise in sales in
February 2009, compared with sales in
the corresponding month of 2008

URING the slowdown, BHEL—the
country’s largest engineering and
manufacturing enterprise, was in
the news recently when a report by
Emkay Global Financial Services Ltd
said that the company’s turnover would
exceed all expectations for 2008-09 and
register a 30% growth. There were also
reports that the company is mulling a JV
in the nuclear forging business with the
consortium of French nuclear technology provider Areva and Pune-based
Bharat Forge. For the fourth consecutive
year, the company was chosen for the
‘ICWAI (the Institute of Cost and Works
Accountants of India) National Award
for Excellence in Cost Management’.
With an order book position of Rs 1,13,500
crore, at the end of the third quarter of
FY’08-09, the company expects to achieve
robust growth in 2008-09 and beyond. An
interim equity dividend of 90% on the
enhanced equity capital post-bonus has
been paid for fiscal 2008-09, maintaining
the track record of paying dividends
uninterruptedly for the last 33 years.
The company also declared a first
time ever bonus issue in the year 2007-08.
It has also adopted the various mandatory accounting standards and corporate
governance practices. BHEL’s topline
CAGR was 28%. It is expected to be
around 25% in 2008-09. In the current fiscal, the company’s order receipts would
cross Rs 60,000 crore-mark and the outstanding order book is more than Rs
1,15,000 crore. In 2007-08, the company
achieved a gross margin of Rs 4,763 crore
and a net profit of Rs 2,859 crore. The
earnings per share has gone up from Rs
13.5 in 2003-04 to Rs 58.4 in 2007-08. Return
on capital employed and return on net
worth at 61% and 27% respectively are
one of the highest in the industry.
Macquarie Research said capacity
addition plans at four important plants of
BHEL at Haridwar, Hyderabad, Bhopal
and Trichy are ahead of schedule,
thereby allaying fears about execution.
With over 42,600 employees, it makes over
180 products under 30 major product

groups and caters to core sectors like
power generation and transmission,
industry, transportation, telecommunication, etc. It has a network of 14 manufacturing divisions, four power sector
regional centres, over 100 project sites,
eight service centres and 18 regional
offices. BHEL has installed equipment
for over 90,000 MW of power generation.
Its achievements reads as: supplied
over 2,25,000 MVA transformer capacity
and other equipment operating in
Transmission & Distribution network up
to 400 kV (AC & DC); supplied over 25,000
motors with drive control system to
power projects, petrochemicals, refineries, steel, aluminum, fertiliser and
cement plants, and supplied traction
electrics and AC/DC locos to power over
12,000 kms of railway network. Besides,
BHEL has supplied over one million
valves to many industries. BHEL has augmented its manufacturing capacity to
10,000 MW per annum and this is
expected to go up further to 15,000 MW per
annum by December, 2009 and to 20,000
MW per annum by December, 2011. It
aims to be a Rs 45,000-crore company by
2011-12 and is implementing a ‘Strategic
Plan 2012’ that will enable it to grow at a
compounded annual growth rate of 20%.
BHEL outbid European MNCs and
Indian majors to win a major contract for
transformers for the Tirora Power
Project. Valued at Rs 81 crore, the order
has been placed on BHEL by Powergen
Infrastructure for the upcoming 1,980
MW (3x660 MW) Tirora Thermal Power
Project of Adani Power Maharashtra
Limited (APML). In February, the company had bagged an order for the supply
of 7 single-phase generator transformers
from NTPC Ltd for its Barh Thermal
Power Project. BHEL has supplied over
4,000 transformers, aggregating to over
3,00,000 MVA in cumulative capacity for
transmission and distribution networks,
which are the mainstay of the Indian
grid. These have been supplied to all
major utilities in the country, including
SEBs, NTPC and PowerGrid. On the
export front, it has supplied transformers to more than 20 countries.

NGINEERING and construction
(E&C) conglomerate Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T) has interests in
manufacturing, services and information technology and has a leadership
position in many of its major lines of
business for more than seven decades.
Recently, L&T has also shot into limelight
when it submitted its expression of interest to acquire Satyam Computer, and is
seen by many as a front-runner for the
Hyderabad based firm.
In heavy engineering, L&T is acknowledged as one of the top five fabrication
companies in the world, with engineering and manufacturing capabilities that
are among the most sought after in the
industry. Strategic alliances with world
leaders enable L&T to access technical
know-how and execute process-intensive
large-scale turnkey projects to maintain
its leadership position. L&T’s globallybenchmarked workshops are located at
Powai in Mumbai, Hazira and Baroda in
Gujarat, and Vizag in Andhra Pradesh.
Between April 7, 2007 to March 31,
2008, L&T achieved several milestones in
bagging major domestic and international orders. It included, construction of
Mumbai International Airport worth Rs
5,500 crore; construction and civil work
for the Northern Area Development project in Rajasthan for Cairn Energy India
Private Ltd at Rs 1,347 crore; Mumbai
High South Redevelopment Phase – II for
ONGC at Rs 1,261 crore, among others.
Some major orders from the international market included manufacture and
supply of reactors (18) and separators (4)
for clean fuel project for Kuwait National
Petroleum Company for Rs 1,696 crore
and building of semi submersible heavy
lift container carrier vessels for Roll
Dock BV, Netherlands.
With ship-building being a major
thrust area, in January 2008, L&T’s proposal to put up an integrated ship building yard and port got the green signal
from the Tamil Nadu Government
wherein it was decided that the facility
will come up at Ennore, north of Chennai,

with an investment of over Rs 2,000 crore.
L&T has a shipyard capable of constructing vessels of up to 150 metres in length
and displacement of 20,000 tonnes at its
heavy engineering complex at Hazira on
India’s west coast. The focus will be on
construction of commercial vessels, warships for the navy and the coast guard.
L&T is a major international manufacturer of a wide range of electrical and
electronic products and systems. Larsen
& Toubro Infotech Limited, a 100% subsidiary of L&T, offers comprehensive,
end-to-end software solutions and services with a focus on manufacturing,
BFSI and communications & embedded
systems. It provides a cost cutting partnership in the realm of offshore outsourcing, application integration and
package implementation.
L&T has posted 54.9% increase in
profit after tax (PAT) at Rs 2,173 crore for
the year ended March 31, 2008, as compared to Rs 1,403 crore reported during
the previous corresponding period. The
company has registered a 40.7% rise in
gross sales and service revenue at Rs
25,187 crore for the year ended March 31,
as compared to Rs 17,901 crore recorded
during the previous corresponding
period. The share of revenue from the
international operations constituted
16.5% of the gross revenue. For the year
ended March 31, 2008, the L&T’s order
inflow rose by 37% over the previous year.
During the first quarter of the financial year 2008-09, L&T sold off L&T Concrete (LC), a ready-mix concrete
manufacturer, to Lafarge SA for Rs 1,483
crore in May 2008.
Larsen & Toubro Ltd has reported
over two fold increase in net profit for the
third quarter of the financial year 200809, due largely to the sale of its ready mix
concreted unit to French major Lafarge
for Rs 1,480 crore. The company’s thirdquarter stand-alone net profit, including
one-time gain on account of the sale of
RMC unit, stood at Rs 1,520.44 crore or Rs
25.80 per share, which increased more
than two-fold over the same period in
2007. The figures for 2007 stood at Rs
481.79 crore or Rs 8.11 per share.

Growing from strength Infosys

VER the years, Infosys Technologies has come to represent all
that is good with India Inc. High
growth, strong values and transparent
corporate governance. So, even when the
times are tough, the company manages to
report strong numbers.
The second-largest IT services company in India is also among the fastest
growing IT services organisation in the
world. It is a clear leader in the offshore
services space with a pioneer in the
global delivery model. “Our global delivery model along with our consulting and
solution capabilities provides a strong
platform for our customers seeking efficiencies in their IT spend,” said S Gopalakrishnan, CEO and MD Infosys.
Apart from providing business consulting, application development and
maintenance and engineering services
to more than 500 clients across 29 countries, the company has also its own proprietary core banking software - Finacle.
For the financial year 2007-08, when
the impact of the global financial meltdown was not so pronounced, the company managed to grow its revenues to Rs
15,648 crore from Rs 13,149 crore in the
previous year, at a growth rate of 19%.
The company’s software export
revenues aggregated Rs 15,429 crore, up
by 19% from Rs 12,935 crore in the
previous year. Of these, 63.1% of the
revenues came from North America,
26.9% from Europe, and 8.6% from the
rest of the world.
The move to de-risk the business
sources and have a balanced revenue
stream from different geographies has
seen that the revenue from Europe
increased from Rs 3,393 crore to Rs 4,207
crore, with a growth rate of 24%, which
was higher than the other regions.
The company continued to reap the
benefits of economies of scale. The net
profit after tax and exceptional item in
2007-08 was Rs 4,470 crore (28.6% of revenue) as against Rs 3,783 crore (28.8% of
revenue) in the previous year. The fact
that Infosys manages to exceed customer

expectations can be seen from the fact
that it derived 97% of its revenues from
repeat business. The total client base at
the end of the year stood at 538. Also,
Infosys has been named as the best company in India in corporate governance in
The Asset Magazine’s annual Corporate
Governance Index 2008.
And, at the end of 2007-08, the company had 310 million-dollar clients (275 in
the previous year), 141 five-million-dollar
clients (107), 89 ten-million-dollar clients
(71), 18 fifty-million-dollar clients (12),
and 6 hundred-million-dollar clients (3).
The revenues for the third quarter of
the 2008-09 stood at Rs 5,786 crore, an
increase of 35.5% from the corresponding quarter last fiscal. The sequential
revenue growth was 6.8%.
However, the impact of the global
meltdown will be felt in the current year
and there are many who are even contemplating the possibility of the company recording a fall in revenues.
But then there are signs that it might
actually not.
Infosys added 5,997 employees on a
gross basis versus the 4,500 employee
guidance in the third quarter of financial
year 2008-09. The management has mentioned that it would recruit 27,000 people
as against the earlier guidance of 25,000.
It has won four large deals in excess of $50
million and is currently pursuing 10 such
large deals. Little wonder then that
Gopalkrishnan said after the third quarter results, “While there could be challenges due to global economic
uncertainties, we as a company see significant growth opportunities in the
medium to long term.”
As a part of the efforts of the managment to increase transparency and
disclosure levels in in financial reporting, it has started the practice of adding
relating to detailed information on its
‘cash and bank balances’ in its financial
statements from this quarter. And
thus, Infosys creates yet another first
in the annals of Indian corporate
history and sets the standards high for
corporate governance, especially in
distressed times.

A relentless mission to

Y C DEVESHWAR
Chairman, ITC

26 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

EFORE the turn of the nineties,
ITC was known primarily for its
strong presence in the cigarette
segment and a marginal presence in the
hotel industry. Over the past few years,
the company has metamorphosed itself
into a diversified entity with strong presence in the agricultural sector. Its integrated development approach and
aggressive penetration in the FMCG and
foods sector has left many established
players astounded.
This diversification is reflected in the
fact that the net revenues for the financial
year 2007-08 at Rs 13,947.53 crore, grew by
14.7%, driven by a robust 48.6% growth in
the non-cigarette FMCG businesses, and
a steady performance by the hotels and
paperboards, paper and packaging segments. The non-cigarette portfolio
accounted for 52.4% of the company’s net
revenues. And this translated into a net
profit of Rs 3,120.10 crore, a growth of
15.6% over the previous financial year.
The group’s focus on the agri-sector is
not just to cater to the domestic market.
The ITC Group’s contribution to foreign
exchange earnings over the last decade
amounts to nearly $3.2 billion, of which
agri exports constitute 60%. “Earnings
from agri exports are an indicator of
ITC’s contribution to the rural economy
by effectively linking small farmers with
international
markets,”
said
YC
Deveshwar, chairman ITC at the annual
general meeting in July 2008.
The ITC ‘Choupal Pradarshan Khet’, a
collaborative and paid agri extension
service, aimed at enhancing farm productivity through the adoption of best
practices in agriculture, grew exponentially by 210% during 2007-08, covering
43,500 hectares.
And not just that, the company’s
aggressive penetration and brand creation in the FMCG and branded packaged
food business has caught the eye. In the
salty snacks segment Bingo has sales of
Rs 300 crore with a market share of
around 13%, in the confectionaries segment Candyman and Minto are market

leaders with sales of Rs 200 crore, in the
biscuits segment Sunfeast is the number
three player with sales of around Rs 1,000
crore and Aashirwad has more than a
50% market share with sales of Rs 900
crore. And all this has been achieved
within a couple of years.
In fact, within a year’s launch ITC has
already gained around 2.5% of the market share in the soaps segments and is
expected to reach around 3.5% market
share within the next two quarters.
Closer to the quarter, when the FMCG
and hotels division performed in an ordinary manner, the cigarettes division
boosted its performance. The cigarette
segment net sales were up 17.7% in the
third quarter of the current financial
year and profit before interest and tax
(PBIT) grew by 18% to Rs 1,134.1 crore.
This is because of the relative in-elastic
demand for cigarettes, allowing the company to gain from price increases.
Moreover, it has an 80% share of the cigarette segment.
The third quarter did cast concerns
over the non-cigarette FMCG revenues
and also from the hotel business. The
focus would be on growing the agribusiness further and also expanding
the hotels. ITC WelcomHeritage, a joint
venture between ITC and Marudhar
Hotels of Jodhpur will be taking up
three heritage locations in India at a
time when there is a pronounced slowdown in the sector. Wills Lifestyle, the
lifestyle retailing business, is already
leveraging ITC’s properties across the
country to build specialty outlets and
these are expected to generate substantial returns, say analysts.
The going was never easy, but then as
Deveshwar puts it, “The path to realising
a new paradigm of high growth is strewn
with several fundamental challenges.
These can seriously undermine the
growth process and derail the pace of
progress in the coming years. Unless we
take impactful strides in resolving these
challenges through focussed policy intervention and radical innovation, we stand
the unfortunate prospect of undoing
many of the gains made so far.”

Moving forward

ROM being a mere gas transporter
at the start of operations, GAIL
India has come a long way in
becoming a diversified gas solutions
provider and will be looking at diversifying aggressively into building capacity in petrochemical and city gas areas.
And, in many ways, tap the potential that
the natural gas sector has to offer.
Speaking about this at the annual general
meeting, UD Choubey, chairman and
managing director said, “The natural gas
sector is progressively opening up and
there is considerable dynamism in the
policy and regulatory environment.
These changes present significant challenges as well as opportunities in the
coming years.”
GAIL is India’s largest natural gas
transmission company, operating a gas
pipeline network of over 4,600 kms across
India. The company dominates the gas
sector, transporting 90% of the total
gas transported through pipeline in
India. Over the past decade, the company
has managed a compounded annual
growth rate of 13% in revenues and 10%
in net profits.
For the financial year 2007-08 it got in
revenues worth Rs 18,008 crore, which
is 12% higher than the previous year
and earned a net profit of Rs 2,601 crore,
which again is 9% higher than the
previous year.
However, in the silver jubilee year, the
management intends to take the company to new heights and has chalked out
an ambitious plan. “Three focus areas
decided by the Board and Top
Management Team (TMT) have been
identified as, (i) enhancing transmission
and distribution capabilities, (ii) petrochemicals and (iii) city gas and CNG
activities,” said Choubey.
These three businesses will be at the
core of the company’s competence in
natural gas-related businesses and is
not an unrelated diversification. At the
same time, it has the ability to capture
the huge capacity expansion expected
in this sector.

On the one hand, GAIL has huge
capacity expansion plans. These approximately add up to around Rs 28,000 crore
over the next five years. And this is
expected to increase the transmission
capacity from current 150 mmscmd to 346
mmscmd.
And, this expansion is expected
to capture the opportunity thrown in
by the twofold increase in the production
of natural gas. It also has linkages
with the Reliance Industries’ KG6 basin
gas production and will be a major
beneficiary when gas operations are
at full swing.
Moreover, the government, in the previous year has permitted the company to
distribute gas in as many as 230 cities
across the country. At its AGM in
September (FY08) GAIL announced the
increase in its petchem capacity to 500
KTA and further to 800KTA.
GAIL’s existing and large plans for
city gas distribution and even E&P will
provide the company with in-built business hedges. The management will,
apart from developing city gas infrastructure, be building gas corridors on
national highways. Through this, the
company plans to add 17 cities in the
first phase of expansion over the next
two years.
So, when the petrochemical cycle is
down, like it is at the moment, the
increase in gas transportation and the
revenues from the city gas business will
hold it in good stead.
However, at the moment, there are a
lot of concerns over near-term profitability. This is due to the overall economic
slowdown and the delay in commissioning of some key gas production units like
the RIL KG6 basin gas.
But then when the cycle turns, the
company, which was adjudged the “Gas
Utility in Asia” and also finds its way in
the prestigious Platts Top 250 Global
Energy Companies list, will be in a position to reap most benefits and take its
vision forward. Chairman Choubey and
team have a vision of taking the company’s revenues beyond Rs 50,000 crore
by 2011-12.

IPRO is an organisation that has
literally metamorphosed over
the past six decades. It all
started off in the pre-independence era
as a manufacturing unit of hydrogenerated vegetable oil, later grew into a diversified consumer care products company
and then in 1975 into hydraulics engineering. It was only in 1980 that the company stepped into the information
technology sphere and has now become
one of India’s largest players.
It is in all spheres of operations, especially in the IT business that the company
has created an indelible impact. In the
financial year 2007-08, Wipro’s combined
IT businesses grew 43% to cross $4.3 billion in revenues. Its global IT business
delivered 38% growth (in dollar terms)
and its India, Middle East and Asia Pac IT
business grew by 51%. Speaking about
this, chairman Azim Premji said in his
letter to stakeholders, “Achieving these
landmarks, in a tough environment for
our technology business and unprecedented currency appreciation of the
rupee, was satisfying. Extending our
track record set over the decades was particularly rewarding.
During the financial year ending
March 2008, the company’s revenues
grew by 34% to Rs 20,397 crore and the net
profit by 12% to Rs 3,282.9 crore. Over the
last decade, Wipro’s revenues have grown
at a compounded rate of 31% and its net
profit even faster at 41%, something that
very few organisations can match. For
this Premji said, “In Wipro, we look at
milestones that reflect value as seen by
our customers. 2007-08 saw another year
of impressive performance by Wiproites.
We delivered all-round growth, built and
sustained leadership while continuing to
invest for the future.”
The global IT services and products
segment revenue was Rs 13,641.7 crore,
of which Rs 11,955.6 crore was from IT
services, Rs 1,157 crore from BPO
services and the balance Rs 529.1 crore
from acquisitions made. During the
current year, the company earned 54.4%

of revenue from work done in locations
outside India (onsite) and remaining
45.6% of revenue from the work performed from our development centres in
India (offshore”).
However, with the global meltdown
and the extremely volatile currency, a
lot of firms in the IT sector have started
feeling the heat and Wipro is also one
of them. For the third quarter of financial year 2008-09, the company has posted
steady results, rather detached from
the flamboyant numbers declared
earlier. Revenues for the quarter ended
December 31, 2008, were at Rs 6,618 crore,
representing a 25% increase over the
same quarter of the previous year and
net profit was Rs 1,004 crore, an 18%
increase.
To challenge these testing times, the
management has outlined a few measures, which it presented to analysts.
These included a set of non-linear strategies, including infrastructure services,
diversification in R&D services and
process transformation initiatives.
Apart from that there has been a restructuring of business processes and also the
management team.
The management would be broadbasing their R&D services and diversifying
from offering telecom and high-tech-oriented services to include automotive and
aerospace. It would also be assimilating
pooling consulting capabilities from various verticals within the company.
Analysts say that Wipro has already created a consulting unit with around 1,000
employees. This could easily be amongst
the largest consulting units across sector
leaders, reckon analysts. Importantly,
the Global Program Management unit
will target large IT contracts coming up
for renewal.
Going ahead, Premji reckons, “We are
living in tough times; the macro-economic challenges are significant and
impacting businesses across segments.
However, recessions do not last, resilient
companies do. I am confident Wiproites
are resilient to withstand the near-term
challenges posed by an uncertain environment and come out stronger.”

fe 500 industry-wiseperformance

Under the lens
Construction, computer-software mega, pharmaceuticals, cement
and tyres were the best performers of 2007-08
Pradip Kumar Dey

A

MONG the industries (82) studied, only three showed negative
growth in their total income
during 2007-08. Mention may be made
of automobiles-motorcycles/mopeds
(-9.65%), paper (-6.59%) and sugar (5.79%). All the other 79 broad industry
categories under which the FE 500 had
been clubbed had positive growth.
As always, aggregates tend to conceal some good or bad performances.
Thus, even though solvent extraction
showed a good income growth of
40.84%, Sanwaria Agro Oils grew at the
higher rate of 110.70%. The group average was also weighed up by the 91.98%
income increase reported by KS Oils.
The net profit of the group also
increased by 39.96% during 2007-08.
The retailing industry saw a 50.87%
income growth. But at least two retailing companies, namely Pantaloon
Retail (I) and Vishal Retail - reported
more than 50% increases. The net
profit of the retailing group of companies increased by 12.77% to Rs
199.19 crore during 2007-08.
Among the industries studied,
the best performers of the year were
construction, telecommunications
computer-software mega, pharmaceutical-Indian Bulk Drugs, cement
and tyres. The details of industry
performances appear in the tables
starting from page 60. Given below
is a brief synopsis of the major gainers and losers of 2007-08.
Construction: The industry
showed excellent results with positive growth rates in all financial
indicators. While total income
increased by around 52.85%, net
profit went up by 104.64%. And the
retained profit of the group
increased by 108.62% to Rs 7153.54
crore during 2007-08. And the debtequity ratio decreased from 1.42
during 2006-07 to 1.12 during 2007-08.

52 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

DLF, Lanco Infratech, Omaxe, JMC
Projects, and HDIL were among the best
performers.
According to industry sources,
India is endowed with an estimated
hydro power potential of more than
1,50,000 MW. However, only 21.82% of
the potential has been developed till
date and 9.13% is being developed. The
government focus on infrastructure
development to achieve the projected
GDP growth level has translated into
healthy order books for the engineering and construction sector. The infrastructure sector, which is estimated to
grow at a CAGR of 15% over the next
five years, requires an investment of
$475 billion to support the unprecedented growth rates being witnessed
across every other sector.
Food processing: This industry
reported a significant growth in almost
all financial indicators, with a net
profit (NP) growth of 23.97% during the
year 2007-08. The retained profit of this

group also increased by 25.46% to Rs
134.24 crore during 2007-08. The top performers were Hatson Agro Product
(112.64% growth in NP) and JVL Agro
Inds (111.05%). The debt-equity ratio of
the group increased from 1.91 during
2006-07 to 2.25 during 2007-08.
The Indian dairy industry is rapidly
growing, trying to keep pace with the
galloping progress around the world.
The annual growth rate of this sector is
5%. It is estimated that the dairy market will more than double by 2011.By
then, the organised sector will account
for 30% of the milk output and twothirds will come from the private sector.
Diamond cutting/jewellery: This
industry reported a significant growth
in almost all financial indicators, with
a net profit (NP) growth of 65.77% during the year 2007-08. The retained profit
of this group also increased by 70.18%
to Rs 552.65 crore during 2007-08. Rajesh
Exports, Gitanjali Gems, Su-Raj
Diamonds and Flawless Diamonds (I)
did well during the year. The better
performance of Rajesh Exports is
reflected in the net profit growth of
103.95% during 2007-08. The
retained profit of the company also
increased by 110.66% to Rs 197.79
crore during 2007-08.
According to the directors'
report, the gem and jewellery industry has witnessed a growth of
22.27% amounting to total exports of
$20.9 billion against $17.1 billion of
the previous year. The US is the
largest consumer of retail diamond
jewellery, accounting for approximately 48% of world diamond jewellery consumption. The US is
India's largest export market for
gems and jewellery.
Cement: The cement industry
showed a somewhat better performance during 2007-08, with the total
income of 15 major cement companies increasing by just 20.27% and
net profit increased by 27.78%. The

improved profitability of the cement
companies during the year 2007-08 has
been due to improved prices, cost control and higher demand in the international markets This is reflected in the
performance of Binani Cements,
whose net profit rose by 83.89% during
the year 2007-08. The retained profit of
the company also increased by 127.39%
to Rs 125.04 crore during 2007-08.
The cement industry witnessed a
moderate growth of 7.1% in the calendar year 2007 against 11.6% in 2006.
Constraints in capacity materialisation and the high base of 2006 contributed to the lower growth rate for the
year under review. But the outlook
for growth is bright. The cement
industry is implementing major
capacity additions over the existing
level of 173 million tonne per
annum. While 7-8 million tonne of
capacity was added during the year
2007, significant capacity is
expected to be added during 2008.

seen in the case of Tata Motors.
The commercial vehicle industry (including exports) witnessed a
moderation in growth in FY 07-08.
The domestic market, which
accounts for nearly 90% of total
commercial vehicle sales was impacted
by reduction in economic activity, poor
credit availability, hardening of interest rates and increase in fuel prices. It
grew by 6.9% as compared to 33%
growth in the previous year. In the
country, 4,99,978 new commercial vehicles were sold during the year 2007-08
and passenger car sales grew to 1.53 million vehicles during the above period.

year 2007-08. Infosys Technologies,
Tech Mahindra ,TCS and Wipro were
among the star performers. The net
profit of Tech Mahindra and Infosys
Technologies increased by 29.75% and
18.16% respectively during the year.
According to the director's report,
changing economic and business conditions are creating a competitive market environment that is driving
corporations to transform their operating manner. A leading analyst firm has
forecasted that outsourcing expenditure on services will increase from $226
billion in 2006 to an estimated $328 billion by 2011.

well during the year. The debt-equity
ratio of the group decreased from 1.70
in 2006-07 to 1.49 in 2007-08. According to

Pharmaceutical Market (IPM) is estimated to be around 80% and there are
only 11 MNCs among the top 50 pharma
companies. The chronic segments have

shown a CAGR of 16% in terms of
value, over the last four years, while
acute segments exhibited a growth of
12% on a CAGR basis. The contribution
of combination drugs is estimated to be
around 46%. McKinsey & Co's recent
research estimates indicate that the

billion by 2015 and will be among the top
10 pharma markets of the world.

provider: The industry has performed

ended March 31, 2008 to reach 300.51
million, according to TRAI. The

Industries did well during the year. The
net profit of JK Tyre Industries
increased by 291.38% to Rs 66.73 crore
during 2007-08. According to the directors report, India is in the midst of
rapid economic growth. The government's continued emphasis on building
infrastructure has given a fillip to the
development of road infrastructure
and transport. The number of vehicles
on road have shown a marked increase.

tyre industry has had the good fortune
of receiving increasing orders from

Earnings grow faster
than topline
Profits grew significantly higher than sales for FE 500 in 2007-08
Pradip Kumar Dey

C

ORPORATE profits witnessed
moderate growth in FY2007-08.
India's GDP grew by 9% as compared to 9.4% in the previous year. The
main drivers of growth were the manufacturing services and construction
sectors. The overall manufacturing
sector recorded a growth of 8.8% as
compared to 12.3% in the previous year.
Overall economic buoyancy, together
with bullish domestic equity capital
markets, boosted investor sentiments,
attracting robust capital inflows into
the economy.
Profits at every level - operating,
gross, before tax and after, was higher

70 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

than the sales growth for the FE 500.
Margins were healthy and increased in
2007-08. The operating profits of the 500
companies increased by 21.08 % (on an
annualised basis) to Rs 3.68 lakh crore
in 2007-08 from the level of Rs 3.04 lakh
crore in 2006-07. The gross profits of the
500 companies sprinted by 20.14% in
2007-08 when sales cantered at the relatively less speedy pace of 17.69%. In
absolute terms, gross profits increased
from Rs 2.78 lakh crore in 2006-07 to Rs
3.34 lakh crore in 2007-08. On the whole,
the bigger companies garnered bigger
profits with a higher growth rate.
The operating profit of the first 100
(according to composite ranks) companies increased by 20.18%. The next two

groups of 100 registered profits at the
growth of 27.10%, 26.56% respectively.
The fourth group saw an increase of
19.04%. And the last group of 100 saw
the lowest growth of 14.50%.
On the other hand, the gross profits
of the first 100 companies grew at
19.50%. The next group of 100 saw profits rise at the higher pace of 26.01%. The
third group of 100 saw a lower growth of
25.25% in gross profit. And the fourth
group showed an increase of 15.53% in
its gross profit. The last group saw a single digit growth of 8.77% in gross profit
during 2007-08.
The Top 10 (according to composite
ranks) recorded a growth rate of
17.72% in operating profit and 17.70%

in gross profit -slower than the FE 500 as
a whole. In terms of gross profit, the
share of the Top 10 in the aggregate
declined from 40.17% in 2006-07 to
39.36% in 2007-08.
The Top 10 in terms of gross profits
were ONGC, Reliance Inds, Indian Oil,
SAIL, NTPC, Bharti Airtel, Tata Steel,
Hindustan Zinc, TCS and Infosys
Technologies.
Within the group, six companies namely NTPC, Bharti Airtel, SAIL,
Tata Steel, Infosys Technologies and
TCS have interchanged their positions.
Four others had unchanged ranks from
2006-07. The highest rate of rise in gross
profits was reported by DCM Shriram
Consolidated (406.26%), DLF (399.17%),
Nilkamal (327.58%), Eveready Inds (I)
(322.11%), Sanwaria Agro Oils (
257.48%), Jindal Saw (207.21%), Flawless Diamonds (206.33%) and India
Glycols (186.63%). Most of these fantastic numbers, however, represent statistical achievements rather than real
growth because of the very low base of
profits in the 2006-07.
The aggregate profits before tax
(PBT) of the FE 500 rose even faster
than operating profit. PBT grew by
22.19% from Rs 2.21 lakh crore (on an
annualised basis) in 2006-07 to Rs 2.71
lakh crore in 2007-08. There were also
fewer loss makers during the year. The
number of companies reporting in the
red at the PBT Level were 23 in 2007-08.
Significant rates of rise in PBT were

registered by DCM Shriram Consolidated (894.27%), Nilkamal (861.56%),
Eskay KniT(I) (467.64%), ITD Cementation(I) (461.75%), JK Tyre Inds
(456.01%), DLF (402.62%), India Glycols
(313.53%),
Sanwaria
Agro
Oils
(275.54%), Punj Lloyd (265.05%) and
Jayaswal Neco Industries (250.17%).
The FE 500 performed significantly
better in the bottomline number of
profit after tax (PAT), with Reliance
Industries leading the way. But in operating profit, gross profit and PBT,
ONGC was way ahead of the others.

Reliance Inds earned Rs 19,458 crore in
post-tax profits in 2007-08.
The Top 10 (according to composite
ranks) raised PAT by 21.54% from Rs
62,555 crore (on an annualised basis) in
2006-07 to Rs 76,031 crore in 2007-08. The
FE 500 as a group increased PAT by
22.53%, from Rs 1.65 lakh crore to Rs 2.02
lakh crore during the same period. In
the ultimate analysis, though, what
matters is not the size of profits (a big
company should earn more profits anyway), but profitability. This can be measured in many ways, with return on
sales (PAT as percentage of net sales),
return on assets (gross profits as percentage of assets) and operating profit
margin (operating profit as a percentage of net sales) being the main ratios.
In 2007-08, profitability was clearly up,
with as many as 37 companies reporting over 30% return on assets. Mention
may be made of Sesa Goa (71.56%),
NMDC (69.92%) and Nestle (50.72%).
In terms of return on sales (PAT
to net sales), 22 companies against
20 last year had ratios above 30%.
Notable among them were NMDC
(56.92%), Hindustan Zinc (55.80%) and
DLF (46.53%).
In terms of OPM, 81 companies
reported over 30% during 2007-08.
Mention may be made of NMDC
(88.12%), Hindustan Zinc (80.07%) and
Sun Network (79.30%).
These can well be called the most
profitable companies of 2007-08.

500 methodology

How we did it
Pradip Kumar Dey

T

HE FE 500 list has been compiled
from largely published balancesheets of companies, which
closed their last financial year between
April 1, 2007 and March 31, 2008. And for
some companies, June 2008 figures
have been considered. It includes all
private and public sector companies
(excluding non-banking finance companies and banks) that are listed on
the markets and whose balancesheets were available by end-December
2008.
In the tables that follow, any reference to 2008 (current) refers to the
financial year 2007-08 and the same
holds for 2007 (previous). Where companies had financial years that were
less than 12 months or more than 12, the
results have been annualised to arrive
at a comparable figure.

84 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

For the purposes of our study, the
ranking has been done on the basis of
Net Sales, which is sales or main
income minus excise duty. Sales
include service charges and lease
income.
Assets relate to fixed assets (land,
buildings, machinery, etc) plus capital
work-in-progress, cash and bank balances, loans and other debtor balances,
investments and other intangible
assets, excluding accumulated losses
and advance tax provisions.
Operating Profit is arrived at by
calculating gross profit plus interest.
Gross Profit is arrived at by calculating profit before tax (PBT) plus
depreciation. Deduct taxes (including
deferred taxes) from the PBT figure and
you get the profit after tax (PAT). PAT
minus dividends gives us Retained
Profit.
Market Capitalisation is the mar-

ket value of a company's outstanding
shares based on closing market prices
as on January 30, 2009.
Net Worth is the paid-up capital
(equity and preference) plus total
reserves and surplus excluding accumulated losses.
Earnings Per Share (EPS) refer to
PAT divided by the number of outstanding equity shares.
Debt includes all long-term loans,
including debentures, plus instalment
credit. Thus the Debt-Equity Ratio
refers to debt divided by net worth.
Return on Sales is PAT as a percentage of net sales, while the Return
On Assets is gross profit as a percentage of assets.
The Return On Net Worth
(RONW) represents PAT as a percentage of net worth.
OPM represents operating profit as
a percentage of net sales.

Caveats and limitations
5 While the overall sales rankings have
been made on the basis of the available
universe of private and public sector quoted
companies, the other rankings (assets, net
worth, gross profit, market capitalisation,
composite, etc) are restricted to the FE 500.
5 Every attempt has been made to make all
figures comparable and compatible with
our definitions. All the related data are
taken from the respective balance sheets
only. Standalone balance sheets & profit of
loss accounts figures are considered.
5 Seventeen companies changed their
accounting period during 2007-08. They are
Balrampur Chini, Clariant Chemicals (I),
Diamond Cables, Federal-Mogul Goetze (I),
GTL, Garware Polyester, GHCL, Gillette (I),
J K Paper, Jindal Saw, Kingfisher Airlines,
Madras Aluminium Co, Mangalam Cement,
Pennar Industries, Reliance Communications, Suashish Diamonds and Torrent
Power.
5 Wherever accounting periods have been
less or more than 12 months, sales,
operating profit, gross profits, PBT, PAT, and
retained profit figures have been
annualised. The only exception from this
general rule is net worth and assets.
5 Some big companies could not be
included in the study because balance
sheets and profit and loss accounts were not
available for two years. These companies
are Automotive Axles, Areva T & D (I),
Avaya Global, Bajaj Auto and KM Sugar.
5 Some companies changed their names
during the year. These are, with the new
names in brackets: Reliance Energy
(Reliance Infrastructure), VSNL (Tata
Communications) , LT Overseas ( LT Foods),
Spanco Telesys & Solutions (Spanco), Era
Construction (Era Infra Engg.), Tulip IT
Services (Tulip Telecom), Deccan Aviation
(Kingfisher Airline), Nicholas Piramal (I)
(Piramal Healthcare), Essar Shipping (Essar
Shipping Ports & Logistics) , Jhunjhunwala
Vanaspati (JVL Agro Industries) and
Videocon Appliances (Value Industries).
5 Industry-wise groupings have been done
on the basis of the standard industrial
classification of all economic activities
adopted by the Government of India. A
company with more than one activity is
classified within that industry from which
it derives more than a half of its sales or
main income.
5 Mergers and acquisitions have also
become major factors in corporate growth
during 2007-08. Some companies
amalgamated with others during the year.
These are, with names in brackets: JBF
Industries (Microsynth Fabrics (I)),

Pratibha Industries (Pratibha Pipes &
Structural), Siemens ( Siemens Industrial
Turbomachinery Services), Kingfisher
(Deccan Aviation),Tech Mahindra ( Tech
Mahindra (R&D) Services), Piramal Health
Care ( NPIL Healthcare & Nicholas Piramal
Consumer Products), Supreme Petro ( Spl
Polymers), KEC International ( RPG
Transmission,NIT and MP Power Line),
Coromandal Fertilisers ( Godavari
Fertilisers&Chemicals), Mphasis ( EDS
Electronic Data Systems(I)), GSFC (GSFC
Investment&Leasing Co), Bannari Amman
Sugar (Maheswara Sugars), Aditya Birla
Nuvo (Aditya Birla Insulators), HCL
Infosystems (Stelmac Engg), Nilkamal
(Nilkamal Crates & Bins & Stackwell
Marketing Services), Hind Unilever

amalgamated with Ranjangaon Inds) and
Wipro (Wipro Infrastructure Engg, Wipro
Healthcare IT, Quantech Global Services,
MPACT Technology Services Pvt Ltd, M
Power Software Services(I) and C Mango
India Pvt).
5 Some companies could not be included
due to lower sales during 2007-08 but were in
the list of FE-500 during 2006-07. These are
Arvind Products, Andhra Sugar, Blue Bird,
BOC, Ennore Foundries, Futura Polyesters,
Flat Products, Forbes Gokak, Gujarat

Logistics, Gati, Gujarat NRE Coke, GNFC, J
K Cement, Polaris Software Lab., Punj
Lloyd, Reliance Infrastructure, Reliance
Communication, Redington, Rolta,Wipro

5 Market capitalisation figures are
calculated on the basis of Bombay Stock
Exchange (BSE) quotations and for some
companies National Stock Exchange (NSE)
quotations have been considered. Some

companies have been delisted from the stock
exchanges or not quoted during the last one

companies for our study.
5 Companies, which have been delisted or
not quoted for long are Bosch Chassis Sys
(I), Cadbury (I), Essar Steel, iGate Global
Solutions, Liberty Oil, Modern Syntex, Otis
Elevators, Philips Electronics, Rain
Calcining, Sandvik Asia, Southern Iron &
Steel Co, Syngenta Inds and Usha

5 Some companies changed their face
value during the year. These are, with the
new face value in brackets: Ahluwalia
Contracts(I) (Rs 2), Amar Raja Batteries (Rs
2), Apollo Tyres (Rs 1), Ballarpur Inds (Rs 2),
BL Kashyap & Sons (Rs 5), Blue Star (Rs 2),

Shaping up in
slowdown times
The slowdown is a test by fire for corporates.
But it is also an opportunity for some to
emerge leaner, productive and innovative
MG Arun

C

ORPORATE India has been
going through turmoil in the
last few months, thanks to the
global financial meltdown and the
subsequent credit squeeze. With the
fall of the capital markets, all hope of
raising money from the public had
dried up. Banks became more cautious
in lending to corporates, especially in
sectors like real estate where demand
dipped drastically. Raising debt thus
became a matter of concern for companies that had planned large scale
acquisitions and aggressive expansions. The best way forward in the slowdown, companies reckoned, is to
conserve cash, focus on strengthening
core businesses, re-align business by
selling off non-core businesses, and
restructuring.
Some of the recent developments in
the corporate world point to this fact.
Reliance Industries (RIL) has announced that it will merge its listed
entity, Reliance Petroleum (RPL) with
itself at a swap ratio of 1:16. Bharti
Airtel is reportedly planning to rejig
operations and create nine verticals.
Hindalco, the flagship company of the
Aditya Birla Group is going in for a
financial restructuring so that the huge
costs incurred by it in overseas acquisitions do not overburden it. The Tata
Group, meanwhile has already signaled that it is bracing itself for the
downturn, when its chairman Ratan
Tata wrote to senior company officials
that they need to curb investments
which are not absolutely necessary. It is
also interesting to see some family
owned businesses are also using the
opportunity to patch up differences
86 THE FINANCIAL EXPRESS | MARCH 2009

within the family.
Says Sidharth Punshi, managing
director & country head, Jeffries India,
“This is a tough time for corporates.
The economies have shrunk, and the
growth forecast has been impacted.
Financing was done when it was
cheaply and readily available, now it’s
become tough.” He sees a large shift in
the manner in which companies would
think and operate in the future. “We
will see more restructuring happen
globally and in India. Large conglomerates facing pressure on their balance
sheets will consider restructuring of
debts or selling of non-core assets.”
Many industry observers feel that
the RIL-RPL merger had more to do
with the current downturn than anything else. Analysts were stumped by
the timing of the announcement, even
though an eventual merger of the two
companies was expected. One analyst
said that RPL's business had been
under pressure and may show a decline
by the end of the year. “The merger
would help bring down the cyclicality
of its business and add strength to the
balance sheet,” said an analyst. It is
also said that the move was being considered since markets ascribe higher
valuation for integrated energy companies vis-à-vis standalone refiners,
owing to better competitive position
and reduced earnings volatility. Simultaneously, Chevron also decided to sell
its 5% stake in RPL back to RIL, for
around $270 million (Rs 1,377 crore).
Meanwhile, Hindalco said in
February that the company will undertake a financial restructuring exercise
to earmark, allocate and credit an
amount to business reconstruction
reserve account. Hindalco had

acquired Canadian aluminium product maker Novelis for $5.9 billion in
2007 in an all-cash transaction, which
also included a debt of $2.4 billion. But
Novelis reported a net loss of $1.8 billion in the third quarter of FY09, which
included non-cash, pre-tax charges of
$1.5 billion for goodwill impairment,
80% of that is attributed to the rise in
the cost of capital. Novelis is the first
Indian company to report goodwill
impairment, caused by the stock market crash and economic slowdown. The
Novelis loss will be written off against
the share premium account in
Hindalco’s books.
According to Raju Bhinge, CEO,
Tata Strategic Management Services,
companies will now take a hard look at
the way they have been functioning so
far. “Most companies will be looking at
their balance sheets—at their operating assets, current assets and the
investment schedule,” he said in a

Illustration: ASIT BAGCHI

recent interview. “They will look at all
components more closely, like subsidiaries, associate companies, investment stake, equity or real estate
holdings. There might be divisions and
units within companies that could be
spun off. A great deal will depend on the
timing.”
Although companies will move cautiously when it comes to large scale
investments and big ticket acquisitions
in the slowdown, there is a lot of scope
for firms to also look at buys that are
good strategic fits, say experts. Ajay
Dhankhar, partner, McKinsey & Co Inc,
said that although the popular notion is
that companies should conserve as
much as cash at the moment since these
are recessionary times, certain prudent investments can bring in rich
rewards. He cited the examples of
Pfizer's acquisition of Wyeth and the
Roche-Genentech deal recently to show
how planned investments should not be

put off citing recessionary pressures.
How has the downturn impacted
corporate deals? According to Grant
Thornton, the total value of deals
(M&A and PE) announced in the
calendar year 2008 was $41.54 billion
as against $70.14 billion and $28.16 billion in 2007 and 2006 respectively. This
looks disappointing, but considering
that just a handful of deals in the previous year had contributed much of
chunk of investments, experts feel that
all is not lost.
Harish V, partner, Grant Thornton
says that the momentum is expected to
return, especially in emerging markets
like India. “With moderating inflation,
lowering of interest rates, timely intervention by federal governments across
the globe to provide financial stimulus,
lowering of key commodity prices
especially oil, we expect (and hope) that
the markets will resume their growth
momentum globally and particularly

in emerging markets like India,” he
said in a recent report.
So, which are the areas to be
watchful about? “Companies with
heavy debt positions that will confront
expensive roll over provisions because
of tightness of liquidity have problems. Companies that chase valuations
rather than have fundamental business
value, also have problems,” says
Shumeet Banerji, CEO, Booz &
Company. “You should be very clear, in
bad times, as to what businesses you
will be in now, or will enter when things
look better,” he adds.
So, overall, this is a test by fire for
India Inc. Some of the most iconic concepts as well as companies have dropped by the road, causing much
confusion and chaos. But this also provides a window of opportunity for companies that would want to come out of
the slowdown—leaner, nimble, more
productive and innovative.

NVESTORS have witnessed an erosion of Rs 22.82 lakh crore (-44.7%)
in their wealth in the last 242 trading sessions on the stock exchange
(BSE).The total BSE M-Cap has
decreased to Rs 28.24 lakh crore on
March 17, 2009 from Rs 51.07 lakh crore
on March 17, 2008. Also, on the National
Stock Exchange (NSE), the M-Cap
decreased by 21.83 lakh crore (-45.1%) to
Rs 26.53 lakh crore on March 17, 2009
from the level of Rs 48.36 lakh crore on
March 17, 2008.
The Sensex decreased by 5945.67
points (-40.15%) to 8,863.82 on March 17,

March 17, 2009 from its previous level of
4,503.10 on March 17, 2008.
DR Dogra, DMD, CARE said, “After
seeing a remarkable growth in
the Sensex over the last four
years, the total market capitalisation of Indian companies has
plunged by more than Rs 30 lakh
crore, wiping off huge investor
funds. Primarily, this was due to
the huge sell-off by FIIs from
equity markets across the globe,
following the subprime crisis.
With a severe liquidity crisis and
a contraction in demand globally, Indian GDP that was growing at an average rate of 9%,
declined to 5.3% in the last quarter. Taking cues from the global
financial markets, the Indian
stock market too continued the
downward momentum, thereby
resulting in huge losses to
investors in the stock market.”
A sectoral analysis shows
that while the top sector, namely
oil and gas, in terms of market
cap, has decreased by 33.55%
during the study period, other
