On a average Rs.15/ 50kg bag sequential improvement in realizations driven by March price hike
In addition prices rose even higher in April 2012 in some areas
But prices began to fall in Andhra Pradesh in May due to non-availability of sand
However prices stayed firm even in June owing to delayed monsoons
Revenues will also be aided by increase in cement dispatches which are expected to grow 9% yoy at 10.7 mnt but decline of 7% QoQ)
Note: Q4FY12 is a seasonally strong quarter so on a sequential basis volumes will dip
Margins will dip on a y-o-y basis due to higher operational costs (full impact of higher freight costs) but will improve sequentially due to price hikes:
On the energy cost front, no major savings as average drop in imported coal prices has likely been offset by depreciation in the rupee
