SRF Limited, a multi-business entity engaged in the manufacture of chemical based industrial intermediates, reported a growth of 23% in its net profit after tax (PAT) at Rs. 136 crore for the fourth quarter of 2010-11. SRF's net sales during Q4 improved by 25% to Rs. 846 crore as against Rs. 676 crore over the corresponding period last year (CPLY). The topline growth was attributable to higher sales mainly due to full year impact of doubling of capacity for BOPET film line and commissioning of new units such as Polyester Industrial Yarn and Laminated Fabrics. The company's audited results were taken on record by the Board of Directors this afternoon.

Reflecting on the results, Ashish Bharat Ram, Managing Director, SRF, said, “It has been a good year for the company as a whole. The Packaging Films Business has had an outstanding year but going forward the margins in this business are likely to come under pressure due to changed business environment. We are hopeful that our other businesses will help us bridge the gap.”

Riding on the overall improvement in its business performance, SRF consolidated recorded 49% growth in the full year PAT at Rs. 484 crore for the fiscal ended on March 2011. The annual profit of SRF consolidated included a gain of around Rs. 33 crore on account of gain from exchange currency fluctuation during 2010-11.

The net sales of SRF consolidated grew by 36%, from Rs. 2499 crore to Rs. 3391 crore during 2010-11. In particular, the company's Packaging Film Business recorded 159% growth in segment revenue at Rs. 871 crore during the period. The segment revenue of the company's Chemicals and Polymers Business increased by 14% at Rs. 747 crore and SRF's consolidated Technical Textiles Business recorded a 22% growth in segment revenue at Rs. 1861 crore during the year.

The improved financial performance of SRF standalone resulted in an improvement in multiple performance parameters. The Debt-Equity ratio improved from 0.78 to 0.51 during the year and the Earning Per Share (EPS) of the company improved from previous year's figure of Rs. 51.14 to Rs. 79.90 per share for 2010-11. The Net Debt to Equity as on 31 March 2011 has improved to 0.39 times as against 0.72 times as on 31 March 2010.

Earlier, SRF had paid two interim dividends, each of Rs. 7 per share aggregating to Rs. 14 per share during the year. In today's meeting, the board recommended NIL final dividend for the year 2010-11.

Following the Board approval on 26th February 2011, SRF commenced buyback of the fully paid up equity shares from the open market through the stock exchanges on 6th April 2011. An aggregate of 58,851 equity shares at an average market price of Rs. 334.38 per share were bought back absorbing a total amount of Rs. 1.97 crore till 6th May 2011.

The SRF Board had earlier during the year approved several projects to be set up at a total investment of around Rs. 1500 crore. Some of the important projects approved during the year included setting up of the company's second HFC-134a plant, Flexible Multipurpose Plant, Mutipurpose Chemical Plant, Intermediate Speciality Plant and Captive Power Plant at the Dahej Chemical Complex in Gujarat and Capacity Enhancement of Coated Fabrics at a new plant in Gummidipoondi. The Board had also approved setting up of two overseas plants for manufacturing Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP) films and Biaxially Oriented Poly Ethylene Terephthalate (BOPET) films.
