BPCL Q4 results analysis

Profit beats estimates: BPCL has reported a four-fold rise in net profit to Rs 11,940.13 crore in Jan-Mar 21 period, beating street expectations. Analysts had earlier anticipated a net profit of about Rs 1,980 crore. The massive beat was due to lower tax expenses and one-off gain from the sale of its subsidiary (for Rs 6,993 crore).  

Revenues rise: Revenue rose 15% to Rs 76,882 crore. Analysts had pegged the metric at Rs 76,410 crore. Revenue rose on the back of higher other income during the quarter. Other income rose 10% to Rs  crore.

Strong operating performance: BPCL’s operating profit rose 17.5% on-year to Rs 5,058 crore. EBITDA margin rose 10 bps to 6.6% in the Jan-Mar 21 period. The operating performance also beat estimates. 

GRM improves: The average gross refining margin—what BPCL earns by refining a barrel of crude oil—stood at $4.06 a barrel in FY21. This is higher than $2.5 per barrel reported in the previous fiscal year (FY20).

Record dividend: BPCL has announced a final dividend of Rs 58 per share, which includes a one-time special dividend of Rs 35. The special dividend relates to the proceeds collected from the shares sold by the company belonging to BPCL Trust. 

Privatisation progress: The government is looking to divest its 52.9% stake in BPCL, valued at more than Rs 50,000 crore.
