Tata Steel reports net loss at ?1,229cr ($172m) in Q3.

Preparing for the Worst

India’s largest private steel company, Tata Steel yesterday reported a consolidated net loss of ?1,229cr ($172m) in Q3 vs a profit of ?1,753cr ($245m) a year ago, on the back of lower steel prices and weak demand. 

 

Consolidated revenue fell 8.9% YoY to ?35,520cr ($4,980m) during the period under consideration, even though steel sales rose 13% to 7.31 million tonnes (mt) from 6.47 mt a year ago.

 

TV Narendran, CEO and MD of Tata Steel, said: “the European operations made a loss (in Q3FY20) as it felt the brunt of the overall slowdown and the consequent shrinking of spreads. This adversely affected our consolidated performance.” [Financial Express]
