Turnover achieved for the quarter ended 30th June 2011 was Rs.83,689 crore ($ 18.7 billion), an increase of 37.2% on a year-on-year basis. Increase in volume accounted for 4.5% growth in revenue and higher prices accounted for 32.7% growth in revenue. Exports were higher by 57.5% at Rs.51,737 crore ($ 11.6 billion) as against Rs.32,849 crore in the corresponding period of the previous year.
Consumption of raw materials increased by 40.6% to Rs.64,443 crore ($ 14.4 billion) mainly on account of higher crude oil prices.
Purchases for traded goods increased from Rs.474 crore to Rs.573 crore.
Employee costs were at Rs.878 crore ($ 196 million) for the quarter as against Rs.617 crore due to higher benefits.
Other expenditure increased by 20.1% from Rs.3,583 crore to Rs.4,301 crore ($ 962 million). This was on account of higher power and fuel expenses, higher stores, chemicals and repair charges, higher selling expenses and lower exchange differences.
Operating profit before other income and depreciation increased by 6.3% from Rs.9,342 crore to Rs.9,927 crore ($ 2.2 billion).
Net operating margin was lower at 11.9% as compared to 15.3% on a year-on-year basis. This was due to base effect and higher weightage of the low-margin refining business.
Other income was higher at Rs.1,078 crore ($ 241 million) as against Rs.722 crore on a year-on-year basis due to income from larger cash balance and higher yields.
Depreciation (including depletion and amortization) was lower by 8.3% at Rs.3,195 crore ($ 715 million) against Rs.3,485 crore on a year-on-year basis. This was mainly due to lower depletion charge in oil & gas and lower depreciation charge for the petrochemicals segment.
