Commenting on the Company’s financial performance, Mr. Dhruv M. Sawhney, Chairman and Managing Director, Triveni Engineering & Industries Ltd, said:

“Overall performance of the Company during the nine months ended December 31, 2021 has been satisfactory. The increase in cane prices by ₹ 250 per tonne for the Sugar Season 2021-22 (SS 2021-22) will be largely offset by recent increase in sugar prices. While the estimated stocks of 6.65 million tonnes at the end of the current sugar season are likely to support the domestic sugar prices, continuance of exports and / or substantial diversion of sugar for ethanol next year will be key to maintain the sugar prices. We hope that the Government addresses the long pending increase in Minimum Selling Price (MSP) of sugar to maintain viability of sugar mills and to preserve their cane price paying capacity.


On the pricing side, even though sugar prices have come off their recent peaks both in domestic and global markets, they are higher than last year. With a global deficit anticipated yet again in SS 2021- 22, we expect international sugar prices to stay firm. It appears that without an export assistance programme/reintroduction of Maximum Admissible Export Quantity (MAEQ), northern millers may not participate in exports unless the international prices improve meaningfully from current levels. Nevertheless, exports may continue to be viable from Maharashtra and other coastal regions.


We witnessed delayed start to the sugar season (SS) 2021-22 owing to extremely high rainfall especially in the crucial month of October. Certain regions of Uttar Pradesh have witnessed uncharacteristically high rainfall even in the last one month. All these climatic issues may have an impact on the yields and recovery. However, the improved weather conditions hereon will facilitate uninterrupted crush and improved recoveries. The Company continues to pursue change in varietal mix to reduce dependence on Co-0238 variety


The distillery segment continued its strong performance driven by higher sales volumes and realization prices due to improved product mix. Owing to some approval delays, inclement weather and COVID related constraints, we are now expecting the first tranche of 220 KLPD distillery expansion of the our 340 KLPD expansion plans to commence by March 2022. The balance 120 KLPD is expected to be operational around Q1 FY 23. The Company’s overall capacity after both expansions will more than double from current levels of 320 KLPD to 660 KLPD.


We remain excited about our engineering businesses, which has largely overcome the impact of COVID on its operations and those of its customers and has put up much better performance in terms of turnover and profitability. A broad-based economic recovery which is already underway is likely to keep


the demand strong for these businesses. Power transmission business is poised for strong growth in the coming years across the gamut of services such as Defence, Gears and Built to print. The Company has a strong order pipeline in its Water business and we continue to bid for many new projects to improve it further.”
