Satish Pai, managing director of Hindalco Industries, said, "With record profitability in the fourth quarter, we had a very good end to the year. We attribute Hindalco’s highest-ever profits not just to strong macros, but also our consistent focus on operational excellence and cost optimization."
"We continue to remain one of the world’s lowest-cost and highest EBITDA margin producers of aluminium. Our strategy to build a more sustainable business model that is isolated from metal cycles is working very well for us. In line with this, we have allocated over 70% of our growth capex to value-enhancing downstream segments. All our growth capex for the next five years will be funded out of internal accruals," he said.
The results came after the close of the market hours. Shares of Hindalco Industries ended at Rs 407.75, up by Rs 10.90, or 2.75 percent on the BSE.
