COVID 2019

During the first half of calendar year 2020, COVID-19 spread to a majority of countries across the world, including India. In March 14, 2020, India declared COVID-19 as a "notified disaster" and imposed a nationwide lockdown beginning on March 25, 2020. The complete lockdown lasted until May 31, 2020. Despite the lifting of the lockdown, there is significant uncertainty regarding the duration and long-term impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic caused a material decline in general business activity and consequently a slowdown in residential sales, obtaining or renewing lease commitments for commercial developments. It caused construction delays due to several factors such as lockdowns enforced by government agencies, work-stoppage orders, disruptions in the supply of materials and shortage of labour. It led to a closure of our offices and we moved to a work-from-home model. We resumed operations at our offices and construction sites in a staggered manner in compliance with government guidelines. Our Trust under the "Lodha Foundation" brand supplied ~ 350,000 + warm meals to the needy across Mumbai during the lockdown period. It also distributed safety items like face masks, sanitizers etc. Food grains, vegetables and spices were also distributed to migrant labourers who were stuck in Maharashtra during the lockdown. A Covid care centre has also been opened in South Mumbai. Notwithstanding the near-term economic headwinds, the long-term outlook for economic growth in India is positive as the fundamentals of the Indian economy continue to remain strong. Although there are uncertainties due to the resurgence of pandemic in the form of Covid 2nd wave and reversal of the positive momentum gained in the last quarter of FY2021, the Company has taken necessary steps and is getting prepared to navigate and overcome the challenges ahead.

Revenue & Profitability Analysis (Standalone)

Total revenue during the financial year 2020-21 was 4,445.98 crore as against 8,449.29 crore during the previous financial year, a decrease of 47.38%. Revenue from operations decreased primarily due to significantly lower construction resulting in delays in project completion and thereby receipt of occupancy certificates and significantly lower sales momentum in the first six months of financial year 2021 on account of the lockdown and slowdown in business activity as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Loss for the year 2020-21 is 185.72 crore as compared to profit of 433.01 crore during the previous financial year. Loss for the year was due to reduction in operating revenue and an exceptional item of 460.00 crore towards provision for loan given to overseas subsidiaries predominantly representing interest on Parent Equity invested as debt. Deferred Tax Asset created on said provision is 160.74 crore, resulting in net impact of 299.26 crore on profitability.

Revenue & Profitability Analysis (Consolidated)

CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Audited Consolidated Financial Statements for the financial year ended March 31, 2021 have been prepared in accordance with the Indian Accounting Standards prescibed by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and are in compliance with section 129 of Companies Act, 2013.

Total Revenue for the year ended March 31, 2021 stood at 5,771.65 crore as compared to 12,560.98 crore during the year ended March 31, 2020. In view of the lockdown, delay in receipt of occupancy certificate in some projects deferred revenue recognition for these projects to the next financial year. Total expenditure for the year ended March 31, 2021 stood at 5,275.72 crore as against 11,558.07 crore during the previous financial year. Finance costs increased by 54.13% to 1,125.69 crore for the year ended March 31, 2021 from 730.36 crore incurred during the previous financial year, primarily due to lower interest inventorisation.

Profit stood at 47.89 crore for the year ended March 31, 2021 as compared to 741.53 crore during the previous financial year. The reduction in profit was on account of lower operating revenue due to Covid-19 pandemic and losses of overseas project predominantly representing interest on parent equity invested as debt.

Overview of Operations

We have a balanced portfolio of affordable and mid-income housing projects, premium and luxury housing projects, industrial and logistics park segments. We also have commercial projects as part of mixed use strategy in larger developments. Despite being impacted severely by Covid during the year, we managed to achieve pre-sales of 5,968 crore across all segments. This was primarily driven by companys performance in the second half year of FY21, the first half being deeply impacted by Covid induced lockdowns in the MMR. This included one of our best ever quarterly pre-sales performance in Q4 FY21 where we sold real estate worth 2,513 crore. FY21 was also a year where our industrial & logistics parks vertical got a great impetus and signed multiple deals. Our large ongoing portfolio of affordable and mid-income housing projects include Palava (Navi Mumbai, Dombivali Region), Upper Thane (Thane outskirts), Amara (Thane), Lodha Sterling (Thane), Lodha Luxuria (Thane), Crown Thane (Thane), Bel Air (Jogeshwari), Lodha Belmondo (Pune), Lodha Splendora (Thane) and Casa Maxima (Mira Road). Our large townships are located at Palava (Navi Mumbai, Dombivali Region) and Upper Thane (Thane outskirts). Our affordable and mid-income housing developments accounted for 58% and 57.8% of our total residential Pre-Sales during FY 2021 and the FY 2020, respectively. Our premium and luxury housing projects include Lodha Park (Worli), Lodha World Towers (Lower Parel), Lodha Venezia (Parel) and New Cuffe Parade (Wadala). In addition, we have a few projects under the "Lodha Luxury" brand, which comprise small-scale, high-value developments such as Lodha Altamount (Altamount Road), Lodha Seamont (Walkeshwar) and Lodha Maison (Worli). The Company received several awards during the year which showcase the strength of the brand that it possesses. Notable awards received during the year are "Top Developer of the Year" by Times Real Estate Icons of West India in 2020, "Project of the Year and Top Super Luxury Segment Homes" for The World Towers by Times Real Estate Icons of West India in 2020, "Top Township Project (above 350 acres)" for Palava by Times Real Estate Icons of West India in 2020, "Experiential Digital Marketing Excellence" for Palava by DIGIXX 2021. As part of our industrial & logistics park portfolio, to begin with we are developing a logistics and industrial park spread over 800 acres of land near Palava, which is strategically located near the Jawaharlal Nehru Port, the proposed international airport in Navi Mumbai and the industrial hub of Taloja. As we progress further in this segment, we look to utilize more of our land parcel in Palava & Upper Thane and aim to take it up to 3,500 acres over a period.

We have monetized nearly 165 acres of land in the Palava Logistics & Industrial Park (PLIP) either through JVs with reputed investors such as Morgan Stanley or through outright sales to some of the marquee global players e.g. FM Logistics- a French 3PL firm. Thus far the Company has already monetized more than 255 acres of the industrial park segment through JV or outright sale.
