The company achieved its highest ever mined metal output at 231,039 tonnes, four per cent higher on a q-o-q basis. The jump in mined output was due to higher contribution from the stream IV concentrator at Rampura Agucha. Operating margin for the quarter expanded 350 basis points q-o-q due to higher product realisations and concentrate sales. Input costs (coke and coal) per tonne increased on a q-o-q basis. Net zinc metal cost without royalty, during the quarter was $784/tonne, a decrease of one per cent qoq. Net profit of Rs1770 crore was higher than estimates due to lower tax rate and higher than expected other income. Other income during the quarter jumped 46.1 per cent qoq to Rs 300 crore. IIFL has lowered its volume growth estimate for FY12 on account of the delay in the commissioning of the 0.1mtpa lead smelter. It expects HZL to witness earnings CAGR of 16.1 per cent over FY10-13E.
