MOIL Share Price Today: Shares of public-sector undertaking (PSU) MOIL Ltd rallied 19 per cent to hit a lifetime RECord-high mark during intra-day on Friday, May 17 after delivering a strong performance in the January-March quarter and in the entire fiscal year 2023-24 (Q4FY24). MOIL emerged as one of the top gainers on BSE earlier today. The PSU stock has given multibagger returns to investors over the last one-to-three year time periods, as per exchange data.

The recent surge in shares came as India's leading manganese ore producer reported a rise of 12.6 per cent in net profit at 91 crore during the March quarter of FY24, compared to 81 crore in the year-ago period. The revenue from operations dropped 2.8 per cent to 416 crore, compared to 428 crore in the year-ago period.

MOIL Q4 Results

On the operating level, MOIL's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) in the March quarter dropped 3.2 per cent to 128 crore, compared to 132.6 crore in the same period last year. Margin came in at 30.8 per cent in Q4FY24 compared to 31 per cent in the year-ago period.

The strong performance can be attributed to the rising prices of manganese ore, coupled with its strong sales and production figures. Last month, the company implemented a price revision for various grades of manganese ore and other products, resulting in increases ranging from three per cent to six per cent.

MOIL has achieved its highest-ever production volume since its inception, totaling 17.56 lakh tonnes in FY24, marking a significant 35 per cent year-on-year (YoY) growth. This surpasses the previous record of 13.64 lakh tonnes set in FY 2007–08 by 29 per cent.

Similarly, on the sales front, the company achieved its best-ever sales figures, reaching 15.36 lakh tonnes in FY24, indicating impressive 30 per cent YoY growth. This exceeds the previous record of 13.92 lakh tonnes set in FY 2007-08 by 10 per cent. MOIL registered record turnover at Rs. 1449.42 crore with a growth of eight per cent YoY.

MOIL also has achieved its highest-ever production of electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD), totaling 1413 tonnes, reflecting a 28 per cent YoY increase. EMD serves as a 100 per cent import substitution product, primarily utilised in pharmaceuticals and battery manufacturing.

In the March quarter, MOIL produced 4.83 lakh tonnes of manganese ore, achieving a growth of 20 per cent compared to the year-ago period. Sales during the fourth quarter also improved to 4.35 lakh tonnes, up by 11 per cent YoY.

The PSU's board recommended final dividend of Rs. 2.55 per share of face value of 10 each. Thus, the total dividend for the year is Rs. 6.05 per share for the year (including paid interim dividend of Rs. 3.50 per share). This is 64 per cent than the last years’ total dividend.

Outlook

As the leading manganese ore producer in India, the company commands a significant market share of 46 per cent and boasts extensive reserves. According to its FY23 annual report, MOIL holds approximately 101 million tonnes of manganese ore resources out of India's total 503 million tonnes, representing a substantial 20 per cent share.

In response to emerging opportunities and increasing demand, the company has strategically ramped up investments both domestically and internationally. MOIL is actively developing its existing mines while exploring potential opportunities for new ones. Additionally, it is focusing on acquiring adjacent areas to its current mines to diversify its projects.
