1QFY12 Results Review Hindustan Oil Exploration Company Ltd. (HOEC) reported total revenue of Rs. 63.5 crores in 1QFY12 compared to Rs. 89.4 crores in the corresponding quarter last year. Revenue declined 29.0% Y-o-Y as well as 24.7% Q-o-Q primarily due to the temporary shutdown of the companys PY-1 field for 23 days. Gail India Ltd., the buyer of PY-1 gas, failed to take necessary gas supply due to major maintenance activity at the plant site of its end user. PY-1 field is one of the largest contributors to the companys revenue. The 23-day shutdown therefore had a major impact. On the cost front, total operating cost, as percentage of sales, increased from 24.6% in 1QFY11 to 29.7% in 1QFY12. This dragged down EBITDA margin during the quarter. However, the company was able to increase its other income by about 245% Y-o-Y from Rs. 0.9 crores in 1QFY11 to Rs. 3.1 crores in 1QFY12. This helped expand net profit margin from 23.4% to 26.8% over period under review. Diluted EPS for the quarter stood at Rs. 1.30 compared to Rs. 1.60 in 1QFY11.

Key highlights of the quarter


Shut down in PY-1 field dragged down revenue growth The Gujarat based HOEC is a petroleum exploration company. It currently has nine oil/gas fields in India. The North Balol field in Gujarat, known as the PY-1 field, and the offshore fields in Cauvery basin, known as the PY-3 field are the companys two largest revenue contributors. The company has 100% stake in the PY-1 field and about 21% stake in the PY-3 field. The temporary shutdown of the PY-1 field adversely affected the companys top-line growth during the quarter. The company also informed that Hardy Exploration & Production (India), the operator of PY-3 field, has temporarily stopped operating activities. This is likely to affect top-line growth going forward. EBIDTA margin falls but net profit margin expands Y-o-Y Field operating expenses, which constituted about 95.8% of the companys total operating cost, increased during the quarter. In terms of percentage of revenue, these expenses increased from 23.0% in 1QFY11 to 28.4% in the 1QFY12. Consequently, EBITDA margin dropped from 75.4% to 70.3% over the same comparable period. Yet, significant growth in other income helped expand net profit margin. Quarterly Financial Summary - Standalone
