Torrent Power’s consolidated revenue from operations increased by 28% in the third quarter of FY22, to Rs 3,767.43 crore from Rs 2,952.75 crore in the third quarter of FY21. Gains from liquefied natural gas (LNG) trading, among other things, have led to a 15% increase in Torrent Power Ltd’s consolidated net profit to Rs 369.45 crore for the quarter ended December 31, 2021.
In the previous fiscal year 2020-21, the company made a net profit of Rs 321.73 crore in the corresponding quarter.
Torrent Power claims that, in addition to gains from LNG trading, an increase in contribution from merchant power sales offset by a decrease in contribution from long-term PPA in gas-based power plants contributed to an increase in total consolidated income.
Furthermore, the company saw an increase in contribution from distribution franchisee business due to lower T&D losses, partially offset by lower contribution due to lower rate and decrease in finance costs, both due to lower debt and lower interest rates.
Meanwhile, Torrent Power’s board of directors has approved an interim dividend of Rs 9 per share on equity shares worth Rs 10 each for fiscal year 2021-22.

Aside from these, the company intends to increase capacity utilisation of fertiliser plants and expand its presence beyond Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Karnataka.
The management stated that net profits more than doubled during the quarter due to significant margin expansion in the chemicals segment, while the fertiliser segment faced challenges due to uncertainties in raw material availability and costs.
According to the company release, operating profit “continued to build on growth momentum” despite unfavourable raw material prices affecting Iso Propyl Alcohol and Fertiliser segment profitability.
According to the Investor Presentation, the Mining Chemical business performed exceptionally well in the third quarter; the outlook remains positive, bolstered by an increase in mining and infrastructure-related activities.
