If we look at cash flow from operating activity.888. 88.31 Lakhs dividend this year. B. Reason: This is because company is spending lot of capital on their “Kochi Project” and lot of engineering and project construction is happening there. Working capital position is comfortable since the current assets are more than current liabilities but since company is following liberal credit policy than previous year due to which receivables have increased. company is also expanding their”Dahej Project” and lot of advances are mobilized there. it is on positive side which indicates that the company is prompt in collecting the amount due from customers . It has earned Rs 2. as it is not much financed by adjustment of fixed assets. 17 .  The company is investing large amount in trade and non-trade activities and has bought equity shares of Adani Petronet Port Services in large amount and PLL have common shares of India LNG Transport Company. inventory has increased and current liability has increased from previous year. These fixed assets are not been purchased by selling old fixed assets. In addition.67 Lakhs in purchasing fixed assets. Cash Flow on Investing Activities  The company has purchased invested Rs. due to which net cash from working capital change is negative.This signify that even after being highly cash intensive company and despite of lot of export –import involvement.Cash Flow Analysis A.

And has taken more secured loan of worth Rs 93.  The company is highly active in mutual fund market and does lot of sale and purchase of mutual funds. We can assume that the company has sufficient cash reserve to take the expansion plan smoothly 18 . Net cash flow on financing activities  The company has further indebted itself. the company has observed more of cash outflow than inflow on its investments.29 Lakhs interest.25 Lakhs Summary:-All together.570. 981.000 Lakhs to reduce some financial charges. 20.  Also due to such a large amount of debt.000 Lakhs short term loans.213.

GAIL.the company’s share is giving excess returns to the investors 2.In fact currently it is priced at Rs 161. I found that Petronet LNG has good financial health and in fact it outperform it competitor. The salient features are as follows:1.That is year on year . Stock price of Petronet LNG increased to Rs. IOCL as well as BPCL. That is why company is in expanding mode to fulfil the domestic demand of LNG. Petronet LNG is successfully serving its purpose of fulfilling the needs of its parents company which are ONGC.78 in Mar 2010. 19 .123 on Mar 2011 from Rs.Conclusion After conducting ratio analysis as well as cash flow analysis. LNG sector is a booming sector as day by day its demand is increasing domestically as well as in abroad. So new terminal is constructed in Kochi and Dahej terminal is also expanded 3.
