Ebitda margin for the quarter came in at 11.31 per cent. The company said its margin fell for the quarter due to lower volume of sales and one-off items such as forex loan translation losses.
Saleable steel sales for the quarter stood at 4.49 million tonnes, down 25 per cent sequentially hurt by a sharp reduction in exports due to levy of export duty and fall in apparent consumption due to destocking at the user level.
JSW Steel said its net debt to equity ratio stood at 0.98 times at the end of the June quarter compared with 0.83 times at the end of the March quarter. A significant portion of increase in debt was mainly due to locking up of working capital in inventory, the company told BSE.
