- As on 31st December 2013, Net debt stands at Rs. 24,422 million and net long term debt stands at Rs. 13,835 million. This implies a net debt/equity of 2.61x and net long term debt/equity of 1.48x. The increase in debt QoQ was on account of drawdown of loans for the backward integration capex and borrowing for purchase of cotton stock.

- Net long term debt/Operational EBITDA (annualized) stands at 1.48x and the Net debt/ Operational EBITDA (annualized) stands at 2.61x.

Project Status    

-The vertical integration project to increase spinning and weaving capacity is on schedule and expected to be commissioned by June 2014.

Outlook 

An increasing number of customers are choosing India over key competing countries such as China, and Pakistan for sourcing textiles, especially home textiles. This is on account of a number of factors such as quality, costs as well as predictability of supplies.  This augurs well for the Indian textile industry.

The US, which is the largest market for Indian players, continues to show signs of economic growth. In spite of Europe granting duty free access to Pakistan and Bangladesh, Indian exports to Europe are growing and could receive a further boost if the India – EU Free Trade Agreement is signed. The domestic market is growing at a fast pace, with FDI in retail likely to provide a further impetus.

Management comments

Speaking about the performance, Mr. B.K. Goenka, Chairman, Welspun India Ltd., said, “Our strategic repositioning has helped us deliver strong results consistently over the last few quarters. The backward integration capex, once commissioned, will improve quality and availability of key intermediate products such as yarn and fabric. We will continue our focus on quality and innovation to consolidate our position as the top global home textile supplier.”
