Management Comments

Commenting on the results Mr Subhrakant Panda, Managing Director said: “Demand for ferro chrome continued to improve in line with increase in economic activity globally, while prices picked up substantially  in January 2021 on the back of production constraints in Inner Mongolia and likely imposition of export duty on chrome ore by South Africa. This will translate into better financial performance in the forthcoming quarters as we capture the price rise through our monthly contracts and, subsequently, benchmark price adjustment. Our financial position is healthy, and we remain focussed on further paring down debt while also building up reserves for our expansion plans.”
