10:45am Interview

Hindustan Construction Company (HCC) reported second quarter standalone net profit at Rs 6.8 crore versus Rs 31.6 crore in the year-ago period. But the previous year’s profit figure included a big other income figure of Rs 116 crore, which led to a bottomline profit of Rs 31.6 cr for Q2FY14.

Praveen Sood, CFO of HCC says the company is trying to maintain profitability at these levels. He hopes that the next two quarters will be as good as the last six quarters.

He says the profitability margins are coming from efforts to bring down costs. The company is not seeing any major push on the order inflow side and the good margins reported is despite that. Order inflows from the government side has not picked up yet, says Sood. He expects government order inflows to pick up only from next year.

He says: "Realised Rs 400 crore of claims in the last two quarters which helped push margins." He hopes to realise similar claim amounts in the second half of the year.

HCC has Rs 4,000 crore stuck in arbitration. He expects the government to pay its dues in the next few months.

The company is seeing order inflow momentum only in the road sector as of now. But sectors such as hydro and nuclear power saw no pick up in order inflows. Sood hopes to end year with Rs 14500-15000 crore order book position.
