JSW Steel profits fall drastically due to weak demand.

JSW Steel has registered 56.4% fall in its Q1 of FY19-20 (April-June) consolidated net profit at Rs 1,028 crore on the back of lower sales volumes due to subdued steel demand. The company had reported profit of Rs 2,366 crore in the same period last fiscal.

Even though the company maintained its annual guidance in production, which was up three percent, its sales were down by two percent. Revenue of the company declined 3.4 percent at Rs 19,812 crore against Rs 20,519 crore.

The demand slowdown has led to higher inventory levels. While overall, the inventory was at 1.2 million tons, up 3 lakh tons from a year ago, the finished goods inventory increased to 25 days, from the otherwise 20 days.

But the company is hopeful of demand picking up in the coming quarters on the back of higher Government spending on infrastructure.

Meduim Carbon Steels are similar to low carbon steel except that the carbon ranges from 0.30 to 0.60% & the manganese from 0.50 to 1.65%. Increasing the carbon content is approximately 0.5% with an accompanying increase in manganese allows medium carbon steels to be used in the quenched & tempered conditions. This steels are of particular importance because of unique combination of strength & toughness after heat treat treatment.
