Aluminum India:

- EBITDA was at an all-time high of ₹4,050 crore in Q4 FY22, compared with ₹1,819 crore for Q4 FY21, an increase of 123% YoY, primarily due to favorable macros, higher volumes, better operational efficiencies, and improved performance of downstream business offset by higher input costs.

Aluminum VAP (excluding wire rods) sales volumes were at a record 93 Kt (vs 92 Kt), up 1% YoY, driven by the recovery of the domestic market.

- Revenue from the Copper Business was ₹9,787 crore this quarter, up 15% YoY, primarily due to higher global prices of copper and higher volumes. 


Commenting on the results, Mr. Satish Pai, Managing Director, Hindalco Industries, said: “With record profitability in the fourth quarter, we had a very good end to the year. We attribute Hindalco’s highest-ever profits not just to strong macros, but also our consistent focus on operational excellence and cost optimization. We continue to remain one of the world’s lowest cost and highest EBITDA margin producers of aluminum. 

Our strategy to build a more sustainable business model that is isolated from metal cycles is working very well for us. In line with this, we have allocated over 70% of our growth capex to value-enhancing downstream segments. All our growth capex for the next five years will be funded out of internal accruals. 

Our growth strategy will continue to be shaped by our 2050 ESG goals – achieving Net Zero in carbon emissions, effluent discharge, biodiversity loss and waste to landfill. To sum up, Hindalco sees a positive horizon which inspires us to invest in future-centric growth projects.”
