Punj Lloyd’s consolidated income at Rs1,777 cr

Business

Punj Lloyd Group has announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended 31 March 2010. Speaking on the performance of the Group for Q4 & FY2010, Atul Punj, Chairman, Punj Lloyd Group, said, "We’ve seen good traction in order inflow from most of our business verticals during the quarter under review. Our order book continues to be robust at Rs. 27,770 crore which is 2.64 times of our FY10 revenues.

Some of our large wins include India’s largest solar-based EPC contract as well as two projects from Mangalore Refinery. We’ve also won some good orders in the infrastructure space. Our results for the quarter and year under review were significantly impacted by cost over runs on few projects.
While we are speaking with some of the clients with regard to a waiver or reduction of these amounts, we have also, over the year worked on strengthening our risk mechanisms and streamlined our operations. We have also completed repayment of all loans and outstanding of Simon Carves UK.
The results of our initiatives enhance my confidence in our capabilities and strengths. I believe Punj Lloyd is well positioned to leverage the considerable opportunities in the infrastructure and hydrocarbons business."

Update on Simon Carves Limited UK: Simon Carves Limited has successfully commissioned the Bio-ethanol project for Ensus Limited in UK. Simon Carves is
expected to undergo a slow turnaround during the year. The Company presently has two EPC orders; namely PTT Thailand project and an Aluminium Fluoride
project in Abu Dhabi which are being executed smoothly.
Simon Carves will now concentrate and work as an engineering company focusing on engineering for petrochemicals, biofuels and nuclear segments. It will not execute any projects on LSTK – EPC basis. Any such opportunity will be taken forward by Punj Lloyd. As of now, all outstanding loans for Simon Carves have been repaid.

Stake sale in Pipavav Shipyard: Punj Lloyd Group sold its entire stake of 19.43 % in Pipavav Shipyard (PSL) to the Company’s co-promoter, SKIL Infrastructure, for Rs 6,564 million through an inter-se promoter transfer. Punj Lloyd had acquired the equity in the company for an investment of Rs 3,493 million two years ago. On this transaction, the Company has made profits of Rs 3,071 million. The proceeds from this stake sale has been used for retiring short term and long term debt.
