ICICI Direct Report
Dhampur Sugar Mills Ltd. reported strong set of numbers with 15.1% revenue growth led by 20% increase sugar volumes of 2.7 lakh tonnes on the back of higher exports.
The company received additional 58,000 tonnes of export quota after the first round of re-allocation in February 2020. Sugar realisation was flat at Rs 32.2 per kilogram.
Dhampur Sugar crushed approximately 10% higher sugarcane in crushing season 2019-20 with excess sugarcane diverted from gur and khandsari manufacturers as they stopped manufacturing operations by March end due to lockdown imposed across country.
Distillery volumes fell 29.7% to 2.2 crore litre mainly due to lower off take by Oil Marketing Companies in April given constraints of OMCs storage capacity during lockdown.
However, distillery realisation improved due to higher proportion of B heavy ethanol.
Power volumes, tariffs were down 10.6%, 39%, respectively, due to tariff revision by Uttar Pradesh Electricity Regulatory Commission in July 2019.
