- “The board of directors of the Company is scheduled to meet on July 01, 2021, inter-alia, to consider a proposal to sub-divide (split) the face value of the Company’s equity shares from Rs.10 each into an appropriate amount,” Sagar Cements said in an exchange filing.

- SCL reported an EBITDA of Rs.400 crore in FY21, which was significantly higher than expected (FY20: Rs.186 crore). While the company’s volumes fell by 32% year on year (YoY) in Q1FY21 due to the impact of the Covid-19-led disruptions, they recovered quickly in the following quarters, growing by 2% YoY, 13% YoY, and 22% YoY in Q2FY21, Q3FY21, and Q4FY21, respectively.
- SCL’s EBITDA/ton sequentially moderated to Rs.1019 in 4QFY21 from Rs.1450-1550 levels in 1HFY21 due to a decline in prices along with an increase in input costs.
- SCL intends to merge with its wholly owned subsidiary Sagar (R), for which board approval was received in April 2021. This is likely to result in a simpler structure, which will result in lower operational and administrative costs, modest operational synergies, and easier statutory compliance.
