ICICI Direct Report
In Q4 FY21, UltraTech Cement Ltd. operated with plant utilisation of over 93% backed by strong demand across regions with east operating at almost 100% capacity utilisation.
Rest all other regions barring south operated at over 90% leading to average capacity utilisation of 93% for the company in Q4.
This led to sales volume growth of 29.6% YoY to 26.6 metric tonne. With firm realisations (up 4% YoY, 1.3% QoQ), revenues grew 34.8% YoY to Rs 13,966 crore (our estimate: Rs 12,917 crore).
Better fixed cost absorption kept cost of production under check that increased 1% QoQ only while remaining flat YoY.
As a result, Ebitda/tonne for the quarter was higher at Rs 1,321/tonne (versus our estimate of Rs 1,218/tonne).
