Anand Rathi: Carborundum Universal -An Early Beneficiary Of Normal Industrial Activity

Anand Rathi Report

The steep, 45% YoY, drop in Carborundum Universal Ltd. (standalone) sales reflects already weak industrial activity, further aggravated by the nation-wide lockdown.

The better performance of international subsidiaries, though, led to consolidated sales falling less(-33% YoY),as we expected.

The approximately 10% Ebitda margin was affected by lower volumes, an adverse product mix and a Rs 75 million forex loss.

With gradually improving utilisation, management is confident of steady margin, supported by operating efficiency, cost controls, product launches in ceramics and cutting out the loss-suffering Foskor Zirconia this year.
