  1. Hi Ashok,

    As you said the company has plans of a capex of 2500 crores. But please can you tell me how the company will get the money for the capex. The company has just come out of BIFR and has a networth of around 25 crores. The cash flow will in no way be able to support even 10% of the capex.

  2. HI Ranjit,

    Yours is a million dollar question,and I salute you for that. Very few investors ask such questions. However in the past in case of Facor Alloys and Ferro Corp the promoters have brought in investors to take stake in the Company.And there is no dearth of VC and other investors to support power projects when it comes to India.But definitely I shall ask this question in the AGM in case I am there.

    Announcement to BSEINDIA

    Further, with the said discharge from BIFR, the Facor Group of Companies are now moving ahead with the envisaged expansion plans involving investment of Rs 2500 Crores for setting up a Coal based 250 MW Independent Power Plant and 0.5 Million TPA Stainless Steel Plant.

    As part of its forward integration the Company (i.e. Facor Steels Ltd) is also setting up a 2000 Tons hydraulic Forge Press for production of Forge Round Bars at its existing Steel Plant with a installed capacity of 12000 MTPA. The total cost of the project is estimated at Rs 25 Crores and the project is expected to be commissioned by April 2008.

    Presently the Company has a facility of making 60000 MTPA of quality Alloy Steel & Stainless Steel with two rolling mills having capacity to roll 72000 MTPA and Bright Bar facility having capacity of 10000 MTPA. The turnover and net profit of the Company for the year 2006-07 was Rs 419.77 crores and Rs 5.39 crores respectively. With the commencement of commercial production of Forged Round Bars it is expected that the turnover of the Company would exceed Rs 500 crores and profitability would also improve substantially.
