ICICI Securities Report

Orient Cement Ltd.’s Q4 FY21 Ebitda at Rs 2.0 billion (up 62% YoY) was ahead of our/consensus estimates, on account of higher realisation and lower costs.

Realisation increased 8% YoY/1% QoQ also aided by higher contribution from premium products, while total cost/tonne was up 1% YoY/down 1% QoQ at Rs 3,400/tonne due to low-cost fuel inventory, improved efficiencies and higher use of alternate fuels.

The company plans to complete 0.5 million tonne de-bottlenecking project by mid-June 2021, while it targets to complete 3.0 million tonne expansion at its Devapur plant by FY24.
