HPL Electric And Power Ltd Reports Its Q3 FY 19 PAT At Rs.6.7 Cr And Revenue At Rs.259.4 Cr

HPL Electric and Power Ltd (referred to as the “Company”; NSE: Symbol;HPL, BSE: Scrip Code;540136),an established electric equipment manufacturing company in India, manufacturing a diverse portfolio of electric equipment, announces their financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2018.

Consolidated Performance Highlights

Our Financial Performance in the first nine months of the financial year 2018-19, has been marked by revenue growth across our core business segments – Metering, Switchgears and Lighting Products. Metering segment grew by 9% YoY in 9M FY19, marginally impacted by delayed inspection and dispatch of orders worth Rs. 19.8 crores in Q3. These will be dispatched in the next quarter and in line with our prior guidance, we expect to record high double-digit growth in this segment, for the full year. Decline in Metering Margin YoY in 9M FY19 was due to the impact of higher  polycarbonate prices in the first 2 quarters of CY 2018.

However, prices have normalized in the second half of CY2018 and this should lead to better margin in coming quarters.Switchgear segment recorded growth of 32.4% YoY in 9M FY19, driven by sustained growth in trade business. Switchgear Margin continued to improve YoY due to better product-mix and revenue growth. Lighting revenues grew by 9% YoY in 9M FY19, with a stable Margin profile. The Wires & Cables segment revenues were stable for the first nine months.

The Gross Margin for the quarter, at the company level improved by 85 bps, partly due to decline in polycarbonate prices. Q3 FY19 EBITDA Margin expansion YoY, can be attributed to lower Revenue contribution from Wires & Cables. Profitability decline during the quarter was primarily due to decline in overall Revenue and higher depreciation. Our EBITDA Margin in 9M FY19, improved 48 bps YoY driven by implementation of cost rationalisation measures. PAT for the first nine months of FY19, was stable.
