Ambuja Cements Q4 results today: Here's what D-Street expects

Updated : February 18, 2019 08:14 AM IST

Ambuja Cements will report its fourth-quarter earnings on Monday and the company is likely to post single-digit top line growth this time around.

  • The numbers will come in post market hours. The street is looking at standalone figures because in consolidated numbers, ACC earnings will be included as ACC is a subsidiary of Ambuja Cements - so we're focusing on standalone, with topline growth of around 7.5 percent or thereabouts.

  • The company has done around 80 percent of its sales in the north as well as in the western part of India but importantly trade segment accounts for the bulk of their sales. So the difference between trade and the non-trade segment is nearly around Rs 15 or thereabouts. If it trades more on the sale segment, it is getting higher realisations.

  • On the topline itself, it is going to be driven by higher volumes, growth of around 5.5 percent and around 6.2 million tonne is the number that the analysts are working with. The remainder of that will be higher realisations.

  • Margins will be under pressure and the profit number, the street is looking at, is around Rs 295 crore or thereabouts.
