MRPL records excellent performance in FY 2007-08
May '08
Mangalore Refinery & Petrochemicals Ltd, an ONGC Group Company and a Mini Ratna I, announced its audited results for Q4 and for Financial Year 2007-08, recording scorching growth and setting benchmarks in performance.

In FY 2007-08 MRPL's performance on fiscal and physical parameters have been commendable and the company earned a net profit of Rs. 1,272 crore as compared to Rs. 525 crore in the previous year, after providing for Interest and finance charges of Rs. 148 crore (Rs.215 crore), depreciation of Rs. 378 crore (Rs 355 crore) and tax liability of Rs.461 crore (Rs. 563 crore). The exports during the year were Rs. 11,232 crore (Rs.11,637 crore).

The Board of Directors recommended a dividend of 12% ( vis a vis the previous year's 8%). Despite substantial improvement in financial performance, the recommendation of the Board, to increase the dividend marginally is due to the large requirement of funds for the ongoing Refinery Upgradation and expansion project, involving capex in excess of Rs. 8,000 crore and also the continuing heavy under-recoveries in the direct sale of products.
