PARCO is the market leader with 35% market share followed by PRL (17%). NRL (22%) and ARL (14%). the government of Pakistan was providing huge subsidy over the gasoline due to which its consumption has increased.Final Project 17 Attock Refinery Limited has is the fourth largest refinery in term of market share too. PRICING FORMULA FOR REFINERIES Currently. while fuel oil is normally used in terms of furnace oil. But in 2007.0000 barrels per day are imported. PRL and ARL up to 2001-2002 is under 10 percent guaranteed rate. The formula was further revised in 2007-08 by reducing deemed duty to 7. whereby NRL s share has increased. This reduction in deemed duty. and so has PARCO s.000 barrels per day or 12 million tons hence 22. In the recent years. twined with fall in global oil prices and caused a considerable decline in the profitability of the oil refineries.8 MTOE per annum. This consumption has grown sharply during 1980s at rate of almost 7 percent per annum but it has shown a decreasing trend during 1990s and later it gained the pace during 20042005 at about 10 percent per annum. ARL s market share declined by 2% over the last year. ARL operates under the Import Parity Pricing Formula whereby net profit after tax greater than 50% of paid-up capital is required to be diverted to a special reserve to offset any future loss of make investment for expansion or up-gradation of the Refinery. increase in oil prices in the international market affected Pakistan s economy due to which University Of Central Punjab (PCBA PICS) . CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION OF POL PRODUCTS Share of the petroleum products is about 40 percent of the current energy consumption in Pakistan. The IPP formula was modified in 2002 and minimum 10 percent guaranteed with upper limit of 40 percent was done away with. Transport sector. Gasoline in Pakistan consists of High-speed diesel (HSD) and Light speed diesel oil (LSDO).

this sector is facing extreme difficulties due to rise of Gasoline process. Company incurred a loss of Rs 396 million as compared to a loss of Rs 870 million in 1Q09. But there is no alternative of Gasoline in Agriculture sector and as a result. Secondly. Cost of Sales has varied correspondingly to almost near levels as of the sales. Due to liquidity issues. This increase in oil prices have helped in improving the sales revenue and profits of the refinery sector. the output and consequently the sales were lower as compared to the quarter previous year. due to adverse forex movements.77 per barrel during FY07. RECENT RESULTS 1Q10 The results were in line with the industry results. The refinery faced a loss. albeit lower. University Of Central Punjab (PCBA PICS) . gasoline prices are increasing locally also and affecting the consumption.34 per barrel in FY08 as compared to US $57. As all the new thermal power plants are oil based and also country has now very limited natural gas resources the consumption of furnace oil will also increase in the coming years. Furnace oil or fuel oil is normally used for production of Electricity via thermal power plants. The refineries due to restriction on hedging against the forex movements facing trouble due to the rupee depreciation. The Arab Light crude oil prices increased by 44.3% to an average US $83. the government is promoting the compressed natural gas (CNG) sector in Pakistan and both encouraging and forcing the transport sector to convert on CNG. This indicates that in the coming years Pakistan will see reduced consumption of Gasoline products. The exchange rate loss was lower at Rs 127 million as compared to Rs 1240 million a year before. At the moment country is facing extreme energy crisis and government is planning for short term power generation plants that are oil based and also encouraging independent power producers to invest in the country. as a result. The refinery sector is facing the problems due to declining GRMs and unfavorable pricing decisions by the government. Other income also declined by Rs 110 million while dividend income of Rs 157 million was earned which offset the negative results somewhat. The refinery product prices in Pakistan are linked to the prices in the Gulf region. PROFITABILITY The sales performance of ARL displayed a consistent upward trend from FY04 to FY08.Final Project 18 government has gradually reduced the subsidy levels.72% decline in sales in FY09. recording a phenomenal increase of 55% increase in sales in FY08 but this was followed by a 16.

While the inflated crude oil resulted in huge profits in FY08. to a special reserve to offset any future loss or make investment for expansion or up gradation of the refinery. which are company s two major products. as modified from time to time. The declined sales figures correspond to the declining PAT of ARL in FY09.Final Project 19 The companies in the refinery sector registered a substantial rise in the gross refining margins (GRMs) during FY08 as compared to in FY07 also because the increase in product prices was higher than the increase in the crude prices.5% and the motor gasoline pricing has been unilaterally revised by linking its price to Arab Gulf 95 RON prices and calculating the price of 87 RON motor gasoline on a unitary method basis. The economic recession of 2008 brought with it plummeting oil prices. with the Arabian light hitting a record all-time low of US $40 per BBL in November 2008. The company is operating under the import parity pricing formula. 2008 whereby the 10% duty included in pricing of HSD has been cut to 7. University Of Central Punjab (PCBA PICS) . the Government had abolished the minimum rate of return of 10% which continues to be contested by the company. This revision adversely affected the pricing of HSD and motor gasoline. Profits earned at the back of naphtha export also registered a decline of 27% contributing to the already low sales of ARL. whereby it is charged the cost of crude on import parity basis and is allowed product prices equivalent to the import parity price.83 per BBL in FY09. if any. The cost of this main input averaged at US $67. as it represented to the Government that the already existing agreement for guaranteed return could be modified only with the mutual consent of both the parties. Light Diesel Oil (LDO) and JP-8 in 2007 and 2008. 2007. The Government has further modified the refineries pricing formula in August. 2002 and diverting the surplus profits. Effective July 1. the Government had modified the pricing formula that was applicable to the company restricting the distribution of net profits after tax (if any) from refinery operations to 50% of paid-up capital as at July 1. Earlier in July 2002. Asymmetric prices of company s product went drastically down as a result and eroded the profitability. it caused a huge setback in conditions where the international oil prices are subject to drastic price shocks. Further. the Government made certain modifications in the prescribed parameters effectively reducing the price of Kerosene oil. calculated under prescribed parameters. While this deregulation promoted competition in the sector. the same reason deteriorated revenue in FY09.

65 billion in FY08 to Rs 75. The administration and distribution costs for the period FY09 increased by 10. This was a result of curbing the University Of Central Punjab (PCBA PICS) . ARL observed cascading profit margins for the FY06 in tandem with the declining profitability in the sector to the extent that gross margins and profit from Refinery operations turned negative during the first half of FY07.016 billion in FY09 against Rs 6. FY07 brought about a positive change in this regard as well as demand for motor gasoline increased. the petroleum development levy charge increased by 565% over the FY09. The financial charges of the company increased by 15% in FY09. The exchange difference arises due to translation of foreign currency liabilities of crude oil and increased to such a great extent due to the depreciation of Pak rupee against the US dollar.546 billion against Rs 91.147 billion posted in FY08. causing a setback in the already declining sales figures which amounted to Rs 76. Financial costs increased mainly due to the huge exchange loss amounting to Rs 1. The fluctuating crude oil and petroleum products prices were the major factors behind these results. This transaction resulted in losses for the company because of the high transportation and handling costs and due to the lower margins available on sales of the product. The cost of sales for the period FY09 decreased from Rs 89. The profitability ratios have improved considerably after falling considerably in FY06. accompanied by a decline in naphtha exports. Despite a 16% decrease in the cost of sales.Final Project 20 PROFITABILITY Attock Refinery Limited registered a drastic fall in profit after tax after a phenomenal increase in FY 08.910 billion in FY08.464 billion in FY09.50% and 8.342 billion in FY09 mainly on account of decline in the crude oil consumed. The company earned a profit after tax of Rs 1. Research and Development cost reduced considerably by 78% indicating the company s reduced interest in initiating new projects in face of risky crude oil market and the slowdown of the economy. PMG is a premium product for the company s profitability and the declining sales of the product forced the company to resort to the exports of naphtha. However things started improving in the third quarter of FY07 as product prices increased more than crude oil prices. However. allowing the company to earn a net profit of Rs 504.02% respectively. This is depicted in the sharp decrease in the gross profit margin of the company in FY09. Sluggish demand for motor gasoline (PMG) due to high prices and unfavourable government policies also contributed to declining profits in FY06. Hence profitability crashed further during the year. the company netted 52% decline in gross profit in FY09. The gross sales earned by the company amounted to almost the same level as FY08.33 million for the year and giving a much needed boost to the gross refiner s margin and net profit margin.

ATRL suffered a huge loss in FY09 particularly in July-December 2008. this also resulted in inventory losses. With the declining GRM. With all these factors combined.748 billion in FY07.016 million against Rs 2. where the crude oil hit the record high price of US $147 per barrel in the international market.015 million in FY08.147 billion in FY08 against Rs 0. Without stabilization.007. the refiners margins were affected by around 30% decline in dollar/rupee parity. the international prices of petroleum products and crude oil started falling since August 2008 and hit the record low of US $38 per barrel in the international market. which reduced the deemed duty on HSD. Kerosene Oil. Even thought the GoP initiated this measure for public interest. These inter corporate debt and price differential claims receivables are still outstanding by the government. The upward trend of crude and oil prices continued in FY08. LDO and JP-8 resulted in corresponding decline in the prices of these products. seriously hampering the operations of the oil industry. it initiated resistance by the refineries as it would erode the profitability of the company and hamper continued operations at full capacity. ATRL was able to reverse the negative impact in the ensuing period through product management based on price economies and increase in production of high value products that was supported by an increase in demand for motor gasoline. Resultantly huge subsidies were given in the prices of motor gasoline. A modification of the Pricing Formula in FY08. kerosene oil. The persistent issue of circular debt continued to hamper the optimal utilization of the refinery s capacity. However the refineries did face a challenging and testing time when the government this year didn t allow the full impact of these rising prices to be passed on to the consumers. diesel and other petroleum products. With the change in the pricing formula and declining international crude oil prices. This development also contributed to the profitability of the company during the FY07.Final Project 21 smuggling of this product due to domestic rationing in one of the neighbouring countries and a change in the geo-political situation in the border areas. the profits from the refinery operations for the FY09 amounted to Rs 406. With the global recession setting in the beginning of FY09. these prices remained within the range of US $38 per barrel to US $per barrel. These subsidies were financed heavily by the oil industry including the oil refineries and the oil marketing companies creating a huge inter corporate debt. University Of Central Punjab (PCBA PICS) . These fluctuations in the international prices of petroleum products and crude oil provided abnormally high returns to the refiners margins and the profitability increased to unprecedented level to Rs 6.

In FY08 the asset management of the company further improved as the operating cycle of the company reduced by 8 days. This indicates illiquid assets of the company mainly tied up in PDC receivable from the GoP.672 million the net profit after tax stood at Rs 1. The trade payables increased rapidly over the last few years. The liquidity position of ARL had been declining over the period since FY 04. ARL lags behind its counterparts. This increase in trade payables may be traced back to rising crude oil prices over the years. Trade debts have increased considerably between the two periods.016. The declined profitability has simultaneously caused a drastic fall on return to assets and return to common equity. In FY08. This is a cause of concern for the refinery as slack credit policy and extension in collecting receivables endangers the cash flow of the company. This operating cycle is higher than that in the industry and hence ATRL should be cautious in future and be more prudent in carrying out its business. These declines are in line with industry trends.01 but is subject to vulnerability as we can see a contraction in the cash balance from 56% of total current assets in FY08 to 24% of total current assets in FY09.207 billion in FY08 to Rs 15. In FY09 there is a reversal in this trend as the operating cycle increased drastically by almost 41 days. ARL managed to slightly improve its liquidity position. This was because the current assets of ARL increased more in proportion (71%) than the current liabilities (45%). LIQUIDITY In terms of the liquidity measure generated by the current ratio. In FY09. thus making a significant contribution to the observed trend. The deteriorating liquidity situation was a source of concern for the company and a threat to its financial strength. from Rs 9. as similar factors plagued the profitability of the refineries in this year. demonstrating a decline of 83. ASSET MANAGEMENT ATRL appears more efficient than the industry in management of its inventory but lags behind in the collection of receivables. The current ratio of the company reached dangerously low levels so that the current assets were no longer sufficient to cover the current liabilities. Current Liabilities for the company have declined by almost 16% which was a little less than the 17% decline of Current Assets. This decline was observed despite an increase in cash assets during FY06 from long-term loans taken by the company as a portion of the loan matured and became due. The receivable collection period for ARL improved in FY06 but rose in FY07 whereas the opposite is true for the inventory turnover (days).46% from last year.758 million in FY09.508 billion in FY09. There was a significant of 113% in the cash and bank balance. liquidity of ATRL declined by just 0. each falling by a colossal 81% and 84% over FY09. The inventory turnover jumped up during the University Of Central Punjab (PCBA PICS) .Final Project 22 After accounting for non-refinery income of Rs 610.

Considerable discrepancy is seen in terms of the debt ratios of the company. despite higher sales. However in FY07. The main reason for this cost has been the increasing exchange loss suffered by the Refinery. An initiation of the trend has been observed during FY07. Downward trend continued in FY09. The ratio had jumped up in FY06 as the company acquired long-term loans but the repayment of the loans during the first half of FY07 has brought down the ratio to the previous lower levels. However this trend wasn t sustained as finance cost increase drastically in FY08 by 404% and in FY09 by 18. When assessed in terms of the total debt to equity. This is due to the high current liability figures. equity expanded considerably University Of Central Punjab (PCBA PICS) .Final Project 23 FY06 but declined slightly during FY07. The ratio has further declined in FY 08. The same trend continued in FY09. ATRL has a history of higher than average debt to asset ratio whereas its long-term debt to equity ratio has stood well below average for all years except FY06 when it had taken on additional loans. The sales to equity ratio maintained its declining trend in FY08 as well because the sales of the company increased less in proportion to its equity base. The total assets turnover has been on a declining trend since FY05 and the trend continued till FY07. Both DSO and inventory turnover register increases in FY09 against last year. the TIE plunged drastically for the year.25%. As a consequence of the loan undertaken during FY06. As a result of these fluctuations in DSO and inventory turnover.155. due to declining sales and increased equity on the back of issue of bonus shares of value Rs 142. it is expected that the company will be able to gradually redeem its position. DEBT MANAGEMENT ARL is largely an equity-based company as evident from the low long-term debt to equity ratio. The ratio of this turnover is line with that of the industry.000. The sales to equity had increased in FY06 as a result of a 34% increase in sales against a relatively small increase in equity. This is line with the industry trend in FY09. In FY08 even though a 55% increase in current liabilities. The ratio registered a small climb in FY09 mainly at the back of 24% increase in provision for staff gratuity. This ratio had also jumped up in FY06 as a consequence of the long-term loans but has not been able to regain its former level in FY07. However with the repayment of the loan. the sales/equity declined. Declining trend was witnessed in FY08 and FY09. As lower sales and income constraints plagued the economy. the company does not fare so well. the operating cycle also declined during FY06 and increased during HY07. However the TIE ratio for the company is very low compared to the average industry. The total asset turnover remained the same during FY08 because the company was able to generate business in proportion to the increase in the assets of the company. comprised mainly of trade and other payables and provision for taxation. as TIE rose slightly and finance cost declined 53%. effects of this are evident on the Refinery s ability to generate sales and subsequent cash flows. The company s equity base has been strengthened due to higher paid up capital and increased reserves.

ATRL has undertaken the task of implementing certain projects that shall cater to the market requirements of cleaner fuels. equity experienced a rise due to the issue of bonus shares. which could not stabilize due to world recession in the past year. and LDO. continued with its efforts to complete the engineering design of these projects to ensure expeditious implementations. With the implementation of these projects ATRL shall not only be able to retain its market share in production and supply of petroleum products but also provide operational flexibility in its future operations. Preflash unit. an Isomerisation Unit that shall upgrade the motor gasoline by reducing benzene and aromatics and a Hydro-desulphurisation unit (DHDS) to reduce sulphur contents in HSD to meet Euro Standards. kerosene oil. Government is expected to take positive measures in providing requisite measures essential for the materialization of the projects for continued economic sustainability of the refinery. University Of Central Punjab (PCBA PICS) . the TIE may also improve. In FY09. the current liabilities decreased by 11%. FUTURE OUTLOOK The revision of the pricing formula as notified in August 2008 has had an adverse effect on the revenues of the refinery with prices of its two main products HSD and PMG having being adversely impacted. as well as to maintain and enhance its oil refining facilitated to meet any future growth in crude oil availability in the northern region. This also shows shareholders commitment to undertake the projects relating to Naphtha Isomerization. The year under review witnessed fluctuating international prices of crude oil and petroleum products. These measures were taken by the GoP under extreme public pressure in addition to the earlier modifications it made to the pricing formula from time to time in the form of withdrawal of deemed duties on jet fuel. Due to changes in product specifications warranted by environmental considerations and as part of its commitment to meet these requirements. Unless these prices stabilize the refineries shall continue to carry the risk of unpredictable refiners margins with the additional risk of exchange rate fluctuations that too had considerable effect on the profitability of the refineries. ATRL decided not to give out dividends in FY09 in view of the declining refiner¶s margins and uncertain future profitability.Final Project 24 by the increase in retained earnings on the back of high profits earned in the year. These plans include construction of Pre-Flash Unit to enhance the overall refining capacity. The strong debt ratios reflect the financial strength of ARL and with an improvement in the profit situation. and Diesel Hydrodesulphurization and to produce environment friendly products.
