Chennai: Tube Investments of India Limited (TII) has registered sales of Rs. 846 Cr for the quarter ended 30th September, 2011, up 17% against Rs.721 Cr. for the same period last year.

"The growth in the auto sector declined particularly in the passenger car segment.  It registered a negative growth of 8% during the quarter, as against a growth of 18% in the previous quarter. This impacted the turnover of engineering and metal formed products segments," said L. Ramkumar, Managing Director, TII.

"The continued growth of the motor cycle industry at 17% in Q2 helped these segments neutralize this impact and registered a revenue growth of 19%. The demand for bicycles continued to be sluggish and there was pressure on margins too," he added.

The profit before depreciation, interest and tax for the quarter was at Rs. 96 Cr. against Rs. 82 Cr. last year, a growth of 17%. The profit before tax for the quarter improved by 20% and was higher at Rs. 60 Cr. against Rs. 50 Cr, in the previous year.

Bicycles/E scooters

The bicycles volume for the quarter was in line with that of the corresponding quarter of last year.   Demand fell mainly due to the flood situation in East and lower secondary sales across regions. Retailing of bicycles and fitness products continue to provide customers a good buying experience and service that are contemporary. Fifty five retail outlets under the various formats have been added during the quarter. With its continued thrust in the retail the total number of retail formats reached 737 stores and 25% of the bicycle segment revenue is derived through this channel.  The electric scooters registered a volume growth of 79% for the quarter on a lower base (7% for H1).

During the quarter this division recorded revenue of Rs 320 Cr, a growth of 15% over the corresponding quarter of last year.

Engineering

Auto industry grew at a lower rate of 15% during the quarter as compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year. Precision Tubes (electrical resistance welded and cold drawn welded) grew by 11% in volume terms, mainly affected by negative growth of passenger car segments. The Tubular components segment recorded a growth of 14% during the current quarter.

During the quarter this division recorded revenue of Rs 354 Cr, a growth of 19% over the corresponding quarter of last year.

Metal Formed Products

In this segment, volumes of automotive chains increased by 16% and that of industrial chains by 17%. Export of industrial chains registered a growth of 56% mainly due to higher sale of industrial chains in the European market and better off-take from OEMs in the US. The products for the railway segment grew significantly registering a 86% growth in volumes. The doorframe segment volumes registered a negative growth of 17%.

During this quarter this division recorded revenue of Rs 207 Cr, a growth of 19% over the corresponding quarter of last year.
