Shri is continuing its capacity expansion both in cement and power plants with further investment, company as well looking at acquiring limestone mines with in India as well as abroad. In the last part of report the author has also given some suggestion about the corporation. FOCUS OF THE PROJECT

The project is structured for the purpose of getting good insight of financials of company and its comparative analysis with other companies. The Projects Focus On financial growth of the company and its financial comparison with other players of the industry. It also discusses the industry analysis and its future predictions The project is being made as a part of summer training and gives good insight of the topic covered under it. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY •      To get a good insight of the cement industry •      To understand the financials of the company and its implication in business structure       To know about the financials of various players of the industry and their comparison •      To find out where the company stands in between the other players Cement Industry India is the world’s second largest producer of cement after China, with cement companies adding nearly 11 million tonnes (MT) capacity during April-September 2009, taking the total installed capacity to around 231 MT by September 2009. With the boost given by the government to various infrastructure projects, road networks and housing facilities, growth in the cement consumption is anticipated in the coming years.

According to Jyotiraditya Scindia, Minister of State, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, cement production could rise to 236. 16 MT in FY11 and touch 262. 61 MT in FY12. With almost total capacity utilisation levels in the industry, cement despatches have maintained a 10 per cent growth rate. Total despatches grew to 170 MT during 2007–08 as against 155 MT in 2006–07. Moreover, cement despatches were 12. 22 MT in October 2009, showing a growth of 9 per cent as compared to 11. 21 MT in October 2008. During October 2009, cement production was 12. 37 MT, registering a growth of 6. 54 per cent as compared to 11. 1 MT in October 2008. Between April to October 2009, cement production totaled 89. 59 MT while cement dispatches totaled 88. 72 MT. With bulk of capacity expansion plans in pipeline, we believe cement industry would witness glut scenario from the second half FY10. Capacity is projected to increase by CAGR of 19% during FY09-11, which remains far ahead the demand growth. Industry is estimated to add 82. 6MT fresh capacity over coming two years. Southern and Northern regions would factor highest capacity addition With 45% and 20% share during FY10-11, this would lead towards surplus scenario.

As major capacity expansions during FY09 has taken place by end of the year and low utilization of new capacities, one believe, full impact of capacity expansion has to be reflected over FY10, which would make oversupply inevitable despite delays in new projects. As supply outpacing demand, maintaining price discipline would become Difficult in all the regions and Southern region is expected to hit poorly owing to regional fragmentation. it is expect cement prices to decline up to 8% across the regions by FY11. Aggressive capacity addition would drag down capacity utilizations from 91. 7% in FY09 to 79. 5%by FY11.

Subdued demand in conjunction with declining realizations would dent margins for cement players in coming years. In order to maintain FY09 utilization levels cement demand is required to grow more than 15% during FY09-11, which seems unattainable considering current bleak outlook. Indian cement industry faced the muted performance over first nine month of FY09 due to spiraling cost front and fixed cement prices owing to subdued demand. One can expect, industry would witness surplus capacity from mid FY10, capacity addition is likely to slow during FY11, but surplus capacities already commissioned would hurt the cement players.

Over the past 12-18 months, government’s moves through export bans, import liberalizations and check on cement prices to control inflation had pinched the industry players hardly at the timings of unexpected high cost front and slackening demand, which resulted in declining profitability for cement players in last few quarters. Cement players had passed on recent government stimulus of excise cut, whereas re-imposition of import duties and excise cut on bulk sales would affect only a small part of cement consumption in India.

It can be believed that, regulators incentives after earlier ill treatment remain a bit for cheer to cement players. We anticipate oversupply and pricing pressure would have an effect on the valuations in coming years, as utilization levels coming down. Industry is expected to face next downturn over coming 12-18 month Despite structural downturn, one can look some value buys emerging out of the cement sectors with timely expansions of capacities, efficient operating performance and strong balance sheets As near to 60% of market share is catered by top 5 cement players, Industry is well consolidated currently than earlier down cycle.

However, continuous government intervention, spiraling cost front and market Difficulties have corrected cement stocks significantly by more than 55% over the last 12-18 months. Cement stocks had persistently under performed the benchmark indices. Despite the above silver lining, cement players are likely to face a trough almost comparable with earlier down turn as going period, expectation of sharp correction in cement prices on account of supply overhang, subdued demand and compressing margins. This would keep valuations under pressure uring FY10 and FY11. It can happen that robust financial parameters compared to last time would support companies in the tough timings CEMENT Cements are of two basic types- gray cement and white cement. Grey cement is used only for construction purposes while white cement can be put to a variety of uses. It is used for mosaic and terrazzo flooring and certain cements paints. It is used as a primer for paints besides has a variety of architectural uses. The cost of white cement is approximately three times that of gray cement.

White cement is more expensive because its production cost is more and excise duty on white cement is also higher. Shree cement does not manufacture white cement at present. Ordinary Portland cement Portland Pozzolona Cement (PPC) Pozzolona used in the manufacture of Portland cement is burnt clay of fly ash generated at thermal power plants. PPC is hydraulic cement. PPC differs from OPC on a number of counts. Pozzolona during manufacturing consumes lot of hydration heat and forms ‘cementious gel’. Reduced heat of hydration leads to lesser shrinkage cracks.

An additional gel formation leads to lesser pores in concrete or mortar. It also minimizes problem of leaching and efflorescence. The Cement Industry Structure Presently the total installed capacity of Indian Cement Industry is more than 207. 26 mn tones per annum, with a production around 177. 17mn tones . The whole cement industry can be divided into Major cement plants and Mini cement plants. Major Cement Plants: •         Plants : 143 •         Typical installed capacity •         Per plant : Above 1. 5 mntpa •         Total installed capacity : 207. 26mntpa •         Production2008: 177. 17 mntpa          All India reach through multiple plants •         Export to Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, UAE and  Mauritius •         Strong marketing network, tie-ups with customers, contractors •         Wide spread distribution network . •         Sales primarily through the dealer channel Mini Cement Plants: •         Nearly 365 plants  in Gujarat, Rajasthan, MP mainly •         Typical capacity ; 200 tpd •         Installed capacity around 11. 10 mn. Tones •         Production 2008: 6. 0 mn tones  •         Mini plants were meant to tap scattered limestone reserves.

However most set up are in AP •         Most use vertical kiln technology •         Production cost / tonne – Rs. 1,000 to 1,400  •         Presence of these plants limited to the state •         Infrastructural facilities not the best Regional Demand Supply Analysis [pic] Northern Region Northern region is among one of the consolidated markets, where top 5 players catered more than 85% of market share during FY08. Cement manufacturers have announced aggressive capacity expansion plans for Northern region on the back of booming real estate market during FY08.

After add up of 12MT during FY09, region is expected to be flooded with new capacities of 10. 6 MT in FY10 and 4. 8MT in FY11, taking its total capacity at 63. 6MT by the end of FY11. Capacity addition is expected to grow at CAGR 15. 5% during FY09-11. First half of FY09 witnessed bleak cement demand in the region on account of slump in real estate activities. Reinstatement of CVD on imports and pre-election infrastructure spending had boosted cement demand during 4QFY09, which is expected to fizzle out in the absence of strong demand drivers.

Slow down in major infra projects and with only driver Commonwealth games in CY10, cement demand is expected to post a muffled CAGR of 7. 6% during FY09-11. Delay in capacity addition during FY09 and most of the capacities ramped up by the end of Mar’09 maintained demand supply equation favorable in FY09. However, scenario is expected to get worst in FY10 and FY11 with the surplus effective capacity (after adjustment of idle capacity) of 14MT and 15. 3MT respectively. We anticipate, region’s capacity utilization to decline from 108% in FY08 to 79. 9% and 76. % in FY10 and FY11 respectively, leading to pricing pressure, despite fairly consolidated segment. Ramp up of new capacities in Central region by FY10 would leave little scope for offloading surpluses from North. Eastern Region Eastern region is expected to cater only a small part of overall cement capacity planned by Industry players during FY09-11. Out of that major expansion is planned to be come over FY10 -11. Region’s capacity expansion is anticipated to grow at CAGR of 15% during FY09-11, taking total capacity at 38. 5MT by end of FY11. Region has witnessed slight surplus scenario during FY08 owing to lack of demand.

Recent Singur and Nandigram issues had disturbed corporate investments during FY09; however, spike in individual housing on account of cooling construction costs has boosted demand in last few months of FY09. As major capacity addition was during the end of FY09, capacity utilization for the year remained firm. Regional demand is expected to grow at buoyed CAGR of 8. 8% during FY09-11. However, with continuous offloading from other regions and new capacities in FY10 would add to surplus capacity by 2. 8MT and 5. 6MT during FY10 and FY11 respectively.

We estimate region’s capacity utilization to decline from 96. 4% in FY08 to 91. 3% in FY10 and 84. 3% in FY11. Southern Region Southern region remains comparatively less consolidated, as major players catered near to 60-65% market share during FY08. Region is well known for its strong demand over last few years, on account of growing IT/ITES sector and heavy investment in housing projects. Aggressive capacity expansion plans of cement majors and from various small players will jointly add up highest capacity 48. 4MT in Southern region during FY09-11, taking its total capacity at 104. 6MT by end of FY11.

Capacity addition is expected to grow at CAGR 25% during FY09-11. Slowing IT/ITES sectors and hold back of several projects are expected to affect cement demand adversely in coming two years. As most of capacity expansions, planned in FY09, were not available fully during the year, major impact would be accessible from FY10. This has maintained utilization levels for FY09. Cement demand is expected to grow at CAGR of 7. 7% during FY09-11. Robust capacity expansion plans will deteriorate the demand supply equation in FY10 and FY11 with surplus cement capacity of 27. 7MT and 34. 6MT respectively.

Regional offloading would be under pressure with upcoming new capacities in other regions mostly by FY10. We believe capacity utilization to decline from 101. 6% in FY08 to 77. 8% in FY10 and 73% in FY11. Near to 50% of upcoming regional capacities, which are planned by small players, is expected to dent cement prices, through increasing fragmentation among industry players. Western Region Western region, which caters more than 80% of India’s cement exports, remains pretentious with regional as well as global headwinds. Regulator’s move on exports critically affects its utilization levels.

Capacity expansion in region is expected to post CAGR of 18. 5% during FY09-11, taking total capacity at 44. 3MT by end of FY11. With low capacity expansions, demand supply equation remained suitable for cement players during FY08. Most of the capacities addition by the end of FY09,contributing mainly in FY10, will balance out equation during the year. Regional demand is expected to grow at CAGR of 6. 4% during FY09-11. New capacities mainly from FY10 will balanced the scenario with a slight capacity surplus of 4. 8MT, whereas region would face surplus of 9. 9MT in FY11.

We expect capacity utilization to decline from 100. 7% in FY08 to 91. 1% in FY10 and 87. 5% in FY11. Slowdown in exports and excess offloading from other regions might turnscenario towards high surpluses Central Region Central region’s subdued cement consumption pattern, over the last few years,had led cement majors to go slow with regional expansions. Central region is anticipated to add new capacity at CAGR of 14. 6% during FY09-11, taking its total capacity at 37MT by the end of FY11. Demand supply for the FY08, favorably balanced out with slight surplus.

Region had witnessed surprised up tick in demand for last few months of FY09 on account of individual housing demand from rural and mid town areas. Equation for the FY09 has been fairly balanced out. Demand for the region is expected to post a CAGR of 6. 2% during FY09-11. Upcoming capacities would create add to surplus scenario with 4. 3MT in FY10 and 7. 1MT by FY11. We believe capacity utilization to decline from 99. 6% in FY08 to 91% in FY10 and 88% in FY11 All India Demand Supply Indian cement industry is set to increase capacity at a CAGR of 19. 2% over FY09-11, recording the total capacity of 287. MT by the end of FY11. Demand growth, which is expected to grow at a slower pace CAGR of 7. 3% during the same period on account of tumbling economic performance. Demand supply equation during FY09 remained near to equilibrium. However, belligerent expansion plans would lead to surplus capacity of 53. 7MT in FY10 and 72. 5MT in FY11, mainly contributed from Southern and Northern regions. Surplus scenario will put downward pressure on realizations and margins of cement players Inter Regional Offloading There has been a fair amount of cement movement across the five regions of Indian markets over the time.

With the supply glut in coming period and demand worries surrounding, inter regional movement will be at peak. Northern region offloads its production in Central as well as Western regions due to comparable deficit scenario in these regions. As prices remains lucrative in Western markets, it had increased its share in Western during FY09. Southern region disburses its produces mainly in Western, owing to its proximity with Western region. Central region transfers its produce in Northern and Eastern regions; however, with supply pressure in North it had increased its share in Eastern region during FY09.

Eastern and Western regions, which remained in slight deficit mode, will be able to cater inter regional transfers from other regions by FY09 and for part of FY10. However, we believe that with the supply overhang in Northern, Southern and Central regions and start up of new capacities in Western and Eastern regions by FY10; Situation is expected to gyrate in East and West, leaving no scope for further offloading from other regions. Such a scenario will lead to low capacity utilization as well as price decline in all the regions.

Cement players are expected to struggle with increasing freight costs to offload surpluses and declining realizations in coming period Major players of cement industry in india ULTRA TECH Company Brief :UltraTech is a subsidiary of Grasim Industries Ltd, the flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group. UltraTech Cemco was formed to carry on the cement business,which was earlier carried on by Larsen and Toubro.
