$ For details refer to Statement of Changes in Equity in the Standalone Financial Statements and Consolidated Statement of Changes in Equity in the Consolidated Financial Statements respectively forming part of the Annual Report.

The Financial Year 2023 was a year of uncertainty, recovery and economic resilience for India. Even as India looked beyond the pandemic, elevated uncertainty due to geopolitical tensions and a war in Ukraine set the tone even before the fiscal year started. The war resulted in higher global supply-chain-related disruptions and fuelled global inflationary forces, which seeped into the domestic consumption basket. Oil breached USD 120 / barrel of crude oil mark, and industrial metal prices soared in the first quarter.

Higher inflation forced major central banks to firefight inflation with an ultra-hawkish policy stance. While the faster-than-normal pace of monetary policy tightening resulted in the peaking of inflationary forces, it also raised headwinds to global growth. A stronger dollar resulting from US Federal Reserves policy tightening and higher commodity prices accentuated external difficulties for emerging economies including India. The RBI also hiked rates aggressively to combat domestic inflationary pressures in line with the global monetary policy cycle.

Global growth lost momentum as monetary policy actions tightened financial conditions and consumer confidence weakened with the rising cost of livelihood. Inflation remained elevated and persistent across countries as they grappled with food and energy price shocks and shortages. Yet, Indias economic resilience stands out with the first advance estimates (FAE) released by the National Statistical Office (NSO), placing Indias real gross domestic product (GDP) growth at 7% year-on-year (y-o-y) for FY23, driven by private consumption and investment.

The Profit for the year before Depreciation, Finance Costs, Exceptional items and Taxation recorded an increase of 43.01% at Rs. 12,987.56 crores as against Rs. 9,081.22 crores in the previous year. Profit after tax increased by 34.47% at Rs. 6,548.64 crores as against Rs. 4,869.88 crores in the previous year.

Your Company continues with its rigorous cost restructuring exercises and efficiency improvements which have resulted in significant savings through continued focus on cost controls, process efficiencies and product innovations that exceed customer expectations in all areas thereby enabling the Company to maintain profitable growth in the current economic scenario.

Earnings Per Share (EPS)

The Standalone basic EPS of the Company stood at Rs. 54.70 for the Financial Year ended 31st March, 2023 as against Rs. 40.73 for the Financial Year ended 31st March, 2022 and Diluted EPS stood at Rs. 54.49 as against Rs. 40.58 in the previous year.

The high-interest rate environment has exposed the underlying fault lines of the global economy and the financial system, which has now widened further due to multiple shocks ranging from the pandemic and continuing war in Ukraine. With instances of bank runs amid a loss of confidence and liquidity woes in the advanced economies of the US and Europe, growth and liquidity concerns are back to the fore as central banks continue their pursuit of a soft landing.

Back home, the sustained focus on capital and infrastructure spending in the Union Budget 2023-24 along with continuing fiscal consolidation and strong credit growth creates space for private investment and supports domestic economic activity. However, there are early forecasts of a probable El Nino and external demand is likely to be dented by a slowdown in global activity. Taking all these factors into consideration, the RBI projects real GDP growth for 2023-24 at 6.4%.

Finance

Financial Year 2022-23 saw the global outlook deteriorating markedly as inflation across the world surged to levels not seen for generations and the rising cost of living hit consumer confidence. As soaring food and energy prices threatened to trigger a global crisis, central banks around the world responded by aggressive monetary tightening and increased interest rates in the fastest and most synchronized tightening cycles on record. Due to the aggressive interest rate hikes, easing of global supply chain bottlenecks and lower commodity prices, global headline inflation is set to fall from 8.7% in 2022 to 7.0% in 2023 (IMF estimates), however inflation is expected to remain well above central bank target levels till 2025 in most countries.

Record high interest rates and a resurgence of COVID-19 in China weighed on global growth during the financial year. Tentative signs in 2023 show that the world economy could achieve a soft landing. As per International Monetary Fund ("IMF"), global growth is expected to fall from 3.4% in 2022 to 2.8% in 2023 with advanced economies expecting to see an especially pronounced growth slowdown, from 2.7% in 2022 to 1.3% in 2023. Side-effects from the fast rise in policy rates in the form of banking turmoil in the US and Europe and the accompanying financial stability concerns weigh on the outlook going forward.

In the currency markets, the US dollar hit a two-decade high with the dollar index touching 112 in September 2022. The US dollar has since weakened against most currencies. Volatility impacted emerging market currencies in an environment of risk aversion, safe haven demand and correction in global equity markets.

In contrast, domestic financial markets evolved in an orderly manner. Indias economic activity exhibited resilience with GDP growth for FY 2022-23 pegged at 7%, driven by private consumption and investment. Consumer price index inflation (CPI) persisted at elevated levels during the year, impacted by a series of adverse supply shocks and the continuing pass-through of high input costs. The RBI Monetary Policy

Committee increased the policy repo rate by 250 bps during May 2022-February 2023 taking the policy Repo rate to 6.5%. RBI also sucked out liquidity from the system with the system liquidity falling from Rs. 7.8 lakh crore in April, 2022 to Rs. 1.4 lakh crores in March, 2023. Money market rates and short-term bond yields hardened in tandem with policy rate increases and tightness in liquidity, while long term bond yields were largely range-bound. CPI has since eased substantially and is well within RBIs medium-term 4+/- 2% target.

The Indian rupee (INR) depreciated vis-a-vis the US dollar buffeted by global spillovers. The INR touched an all-time low of 83.2 during October, 2022 but has recovered since then on a depreciating US dollar and net inflows through foreign portfolio investments. Indias foreign exchange reserves were placed at US$ 578.4 billion as on 31st March, 2023.

Amidst the aforesaid backdrop, the Bankers continue to rate your Company as a prime customer and extend facilities / services at prime rates. Your Company follows a prudent financial policy and aims not to exceed an optimum financial gearing at any time. The Companys gross Debt to Equity Ratio is 0.11 as at 31st March, 2023. Further, your Company continued to focus on managing cash efficiently and ensured that it had adequate liquidity and back up lines of credit. During the year, your Company repaid total borrowings of Rs. 1,861.43 crores whilst maintaining an optimum liquidity level of Rs. 14,410 crores as at 31st March, 2023.

Further, your Company has been rated by CRISIL Ratings Limited ("CRISIL"), ICRA Limited ("ICRA"), India Ratings and Research Private Limited ("India Ratings") and CARE Ratings Limited ("CARE") for its Banking facilities. All have re-affirmed the highest credit rating for your Companys Short-Term facilities.
