The Group Operates in Following Segment


Hindalco's major products include standard and specialty grade aluminas and hydrates,
aluminium ingots, billets, wire rods, flat rolled products, extrusions and foil.

The integrated facility at Renukoot houses an alumina refinery and an aluminium smelter, along
with facilities for the production of semi-fabricated products; namely, redraw rods, flat rolled
products and extrusions. The plant is backed by a co-generation power unit and a captive power
plant at Renusagar to ensure the continuous supply of power for smelter and other operations.

A strong presence across the value chain and synergies between operations has given us a
dominant share in the value-added products market. As a step towards expanding the market for
value-added products and services, we have launched various brands in recent years — Everlast
roofing sheets, Freshwrapp kitchen foil and Freshpakk semi-rigid containers.

Birla Copper, Hindalco‘s copper unit, is located at Dahej in Gujarat, India. The unit has the
unique distinction of being one of the largest single-location copper smelters in the world. The
smelter uses state-of-the-art technology and has a capacity of 500,000 tpa.

Birla Copper also produces precious metals, fertilisers and sulphuric and phosphoric acid. The
unit has captive power plants for continuous power generation and a captive jetty to facilitate
logistics and transportation.

Birla Copper upholds its longstanding reputation for quality copper cathodes and continuous cast
copper rods by assuring its management processes meet the highest standards. It has acquired
certifications such as ISO-9001:2000 (Quality Management Systems), ISO-14001:2004
(Environmental Management System) and OHSAS-18001:2007 (Occupational Health and Safety
Management Systems).

Hindalco acquired two Australian copper mines, Nifty and Mt. Gordon, in 2003. The Birla Nift y
copper mine consists of an open-pit mine, heap leach pads and a solvent extraction and
electrowinning (SXEW) processing plant, which produces copper cathode.

The Mt. Gordon copper operation consists of an underground mine and a copper concentrate
plant. Until recently, the operation produced copper cathode through the ferric leach process.

In 2004, a copper concentrator was commissioned to provide concentrate for use at Hindalco's
operations in Dahej. During FY2008, Mt. Gordon produced 23,886 tonnes of copper in

Both Nifty and Mt. Gordon have a long-term life of mine off-take agreement with Hindalco for
supply of copper concentrate to the copper smelter at Dahej.
Alumina Chemicals

Hindalco's captive bauxite mines in Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Orissa, provide
the raw material to our alumina refineries located at Belgaum in Karnataka, Muri in Jharkhand
and Renukoot in Uttar Pradesh, India.

These refineries produce standard alumina, standard hydrate and specialty aluminas and
hydrates. Our chemicals serve a wide range of customers around the world with our standard and
specialty aluminas and hydrates, offering a wide spectrum of grades to suit diverse applications,
like high grade refractories, ceramics, fire retardant plastics, alum, zeolite and many more.
Today, our customized, tailor-made products serve 37 countries across the world.

The alumina refineries at Belgaum in southern India, Muri in eastern India and Renukoot in
central India, have installed capacities of 350,000 tap, 180,000 tap and 700,000 tap, respectively.

Our specialized aluminas and hydrates emanate from the technological innovations of our R&D
team. The Belgaum R&D Centre is recognized by the Department of Scientific & Industrial
Research (DSIR), Government of India. With over 25 years of experience, the Research and
Development team of expert scientists carries out research in the fields of bauxite process ability
studies of the Bayer process, product development, quality control and application research for
enhanced understanding of the end-usage of specialty chemicals.
Normal soda course aluminas

Calcined aluminas are widely used in refractories and in the ceramic industry. Their specific
properties include extreme hardness, refractoriness, high mechanical strength and resistance to
wear abrasion, chemical attack, and corrosion. These are used as feed material for fused alumina,
refractory aggregates, etc.

Coarse alumina grades are white crystalline powders that are predominantly alpha alumina of
high chemical purity and consistent physical properties. These products have excellent grind
Medium and low soda course aluminas

Medium and low soda course alpha aluminas consist of friable aggregates of crystallites having
easy grind ability and are used in the manufacture of wear-resistant ceramic liners, as well as in
industrial ceramics and electrical insulators.

Medium and low soda fine aluminas

Medium and low soda fine aluminas are predominantly in the alpha phase, with controlled
particle-size distribution. They are widely used in special refractory bricks and shapes, refractory
gunning mixes, wear-resistant ceramic parts, ceramic liners, grinding media, HVDC / HVAC
insulators, etc., when used for high-temperature applications. These low soda grades provide
excellent hot strength to the refractory body.
Normal soda fine aluminas

These are predominantly fine, alpha aluminas of about 5µm with controlled particle-size
distribution. They are widely used in high-alumina refractories, Comcast shapes, grinding media,
high-tension insulators, ceramic liners, etc.

Reactive fine aluminas

These grades are predominantly alpha aluminas having wider particle-size distribution. They
yield a low water demand with very good flow properties when used in low-cement constables,
ULCC and self-flow refractory mixes. They are also recommended for usage in grinding media,
wear resistant ceramic components and liners, owing to their superior packing characteristics.
Reactive aluminas — ultrafine

These reactive alumina grades are white crystalline alpha alumina powders developed for
specialized ceramic and refractory applications. These aluminas are characterized by high
reactivity, low water absorption and controlled particle-size distribution. Typical applications
include low cement and ultra-low cement constables, slide gates and refractory bricks, resistor
cores, new generation ceramics and wear-resistant ceramic parts.

Polishing aluminas

These grades are developed through controlled calcinations and processing in order to obtain
consistent particle hardness, shape and size distribution. They provide a choice of oil absorption
values within the product range. These are recommended for use in solid bars, emulsions and
pastes for metal and stone polishing applications.
Coarse alumina hydrates

Alumina hydrate, which is also termed as aluminium hydroxide and alumina trihydrate, is a
crystalline white powder with the chemical formula Al2O3·3H2O or Al (OH) 3. These hydrates
are available in both moist and dry forms. Coarse alumina hydrates are recommended in the
manufacture of aluminium sulphate (alum), PAC (Poly Aluminium Chloride), zeolite, aluminium
fluoride, glass, etc.

Fine alumina hydrates

These are fine white powders, with average particle size ranging from 5 to 15µm. They are used
as fillers in paper and in SMC / DMCs; they also function as flame retardants in latex, rubbers,
plastics, etc.


Bauxite is an ore used in the production of alumina. In the mines located in the eastern region,
there are pockets of good quality bauxite that can be used for various purposes in various
industries, such as refractories, steel, polishing and for manufacturing water-treatment chemicals.
The ore is graded as per segment requirement


Laterite is an ore with a lower percentage of alumina content that occurs just above the bauxite
layers at the mines in the western region of India. It is used as a raw material by cement
Mindustries as an additive / flux to increase the alumina percentage in the cement composition.
Laterite can be supplied in particle sizes ranging from 50 to 150 mm. The alumina content in the
product is around 36 - 43 per cent.
Novelis Takeover

On February 11, 2007, the company entered into an agreement to acquire the Canadian company
Novelis for US$ 6 billion, making the combined entity the worlds largest rolled- aluminium
producer. On May 15, 2007, the acquisition was completed with Novelis shareholders receiving
$44.93 per outstanding share of common stock.

Hindalco, through it‘s wholly- owned subsidiary AV metals Inc, acquired 75,415,536 common
shares of Novelis, representing 100 percent of the issued and outstanding common shares.
Immediately after closing, AV Metals Inc. transferred the common shares of Novelis to its
wholly-owned subsidiary AV Aluminium Inc.
Result of Novelis Acquisition

The acquisition of Novelis effective 15 May 2007, Hindalco is now a global player with a strong
presence in five continents and with a product portfolio which is a natural hedge against the
volatility of aluminium prices. Novelis has reported net profit of US$ 28 million (under US
GAAP ) for the period 16 May 2007, to 31 March 2008 vis-à-vis a loss of UD$ 265 million
(under US GAAP ) in FY2007. The reported result for the post- acquisition period were
favorably impacted by certain income and expanse item , Aggregating to a net USD 21million on
a pre-Tax basis , associated with fair value adjustments recorded at the date of acquisition.

The improved result came on the back of strong operational focused and increase in capacities in
fast growing markets of Asia and South America. Total shipment increased from 3113kt to
3150kt. Novelis countered inflation and challenging market condition in certain geographies with
portfolio of optimization, price increases working capital improvement and reduction in
corporate cost. The company‘s exposure to contracts with metal price ceiling reduced during the
year. The benefits can be seen in increased revenues and stronger cash flows.

Standalone results

Net sales and revenues at Rs. 18,219 crore in FY 09 are lower as compared to Rs. 19,201.03
crore in FY 08. The steep reduction in copper LME led to a fall in the overall sales revenue;
though the rupee depreciation against the USD partially mitigated the impact. Higher input costs
and an unfavorable market mix (more sale of primary metal and increased exports) impaired
profitability. EBIDTA is lower as compared to FY 09, even after factoring the benefit derived
from higher metal production consequent to the Hirakud brownfield expansion, profit
improvement measures and higher other income.

To reduce the strain on its profitability the company has initiated aggressive cost control
measures and tighter working capital management besides re-aligning its capital expenditure
across the businesses.

The turnover in the aluminium business grew by 6.4 per cent to Rs. 7,603.84 crore vis-à-vis Rs.
7,144.94 crore in the corresponding period in the previous year on the back of the highest ever
metal volumes. However the lower LME and spiraling input costs squeezed the margin, coupled
with the shrinkage in the domestic demand for value added products which have better margins.
This in turn reduced the gains from a weaker rupee.

In the copper business, revenues stood at Rs. 10,624.5 crore lower by 12 per cent vis-à-vis Rs.
12,065 crore in FY08 as a result of the 21 per cent lower LME. The profit before interest and tax
also fell by 25 per cent to Rs. 379.14 crore from Rs. 503.36 crore in the last year, mainly due to
37 per cent fall in TcRc and planned annual shut down.

The steep depreciation of the Indian Rupee against the US Dollar affected the copper business by
an estimated Rs. 156.5 crore, as a result of restatement of net foreign currency exposures as on
31 March 2009. For the previous year, this amount was Rs. 41crore. Consequently, the PBIT of
copper business is lower than the previous year by Rs.115.45 crore on this account.
Profit before tax at Rs. 2,690.32 crore in FY 2009 vs. Rs. 3,025.61 crore, 10.4 per cent fall,
reflects superior performance of the company as compared to industry performance in the
backdrop of economic downturn.

The adjustment for earlier year (net) under tax expenses reflects the write back of provision for
tax resulting from a change in estimation of tax liability in progress in tax assessments.

Operational review

Consequent to the Brownfield expansion at Hirakud, metal production of the company was up by
10 per cent. It has crossed the half million mark. With the higher production at Muri from the
Brownfield expansion, alumina production has increased to 12.37 lakh ton. The demand
shrinkage in domestic and global markets resulted in lower production of downstream products.

Brownfield expansion projects

The Phase II of the expansion of smelting capacity from 100,000 tpa to 143,000 tpa was
completed on time. Its expansion to 155 ktpa is at an advanced stage and will be completed by
August 2009.The power generation capacity has been raised from 267.5 MW to 367.5 MW. All
the units have been commissioned. The smelter expansion from 155 ktpa to 206.6 ktpa has also
begun and will be commissioned in FY 12. It will use advanced pot technology of 235 KA with
pre-baked anodes and will need an additional 100 MW power plant.

The specials alumina production from Belgaum will be ramped up to 316 ktpa from 138 ktpa. On
completion, this project will catapult Hindalco to one of the largest specials producer in the
world. A cogen power plant (steam and power production) and a railway siding facility etc are
also being taken up as a part of the project; it will reduce the cost of production substantially.
This is expected to be completed by end 2011.

Greenfield projects

Utkal Alumina is an alumina refinery coming up in Raygada, Orissa. The project consists of a
1.5 million tpa refinery, with a 90 MW cogen plant and a 2 million tpa bauxite mining facility.
The construction of the refinery is currently in full swing. All the land required for the project
has been acquired. Around 70 per cent of the project cost has already been committed. The
mechanical completion of the plant is expected by January 2011 and the first alumina is slated
for production around July 2011.

The Mahan Aluminium project coming up in Bargwan, MP, will have a smelter capacity of
359,000 tpa and a captive 900 MW power plant (6 x 150 MW). The land acquisition for the
project will be completed in Q2 FY 10. All the major clearances have been obtained. Major
orders have been placed for both the smelter and the power plant. BHEL has been given the
order for the boiler – turbine – generator packages for the power plant. Orders for cranes,
cathode blocks, rectifiers and substation for the smelter have also been placed. Nearly 40 per
cent of the total project cost has been committed so far. The first metal from the smelter would
roll out by July 2011.

Aditya Aluminium, is an integrated aluminium project coming up in Orissa, with a 1.5 million
tpa alumina refinery, 359,000 tpa aluminium smelter, and 900 MW captive power plant. A large
portion of the land required for the project has been acquired. Forest clearance for the rest of the
land is under progress. Key clearances have been obtained. As is in the case of Mahan, a number
of major orders have been placed for the smelter and power plant. The first metal from the
smelter is slated for October 2011. The refinery should be mechanically completed by June 2013.

Jharkhand Aluminium is an aluminum smelter coming up in Sonahatu, Jharkhand, with a

capacity of 359,000 tpa . A 900 MW captive power plant will also be a part of the project. The
plant will be located in Sonahatu which is 20 kilometers from Muri and 55 kilometers from
Ranchi. The land acquisition process has already started. The government of Jharkhand has
given the water allocation clearance for 55 mcm of water from the Subernrekha basin. The tubed
coal mine has been allotted jointly with Tata Power. The first metal from the smelter is expected
by June 2013.

Consolidated results
The consolidated revenue for the year is at Rs. 65,625 crore and PBIT at Rs. 627 crore.

The result includes a non-cash unrealised derivative loss of around Rs. 2,381 crore (USD 519
million) which was only Rs. 12 crore (USD 3 million) last year. These derivatives are used to
hedge exposures to aluminum, primarily related to customer fixed-price contracts, other
commodities and currency. The magnitude of the mark-to-market loss on the company‘s
derivative portfolio primarily reflects the dramatic downward movement in the LME price of

Aluminium business revenue is Rs. 54,306.42 crore and PBIT at Rs. (425.31) crore, while the
copper stood at Rs.10,760.26 crore with a PBIT of Rs. 374.11 crore.
The liquidity position of Novelis has remained stable despite challenging market conditions. The
company‘s actions taken to adjust metal intake, reduce production and decrease fixed costs will
deliver an estimated $140 million annualised future savings.

The comparative shipments for the twelve months ended 31 March 2009, and for the combined
twelve months ended 31 March 2008 are as indicated: Twelve months ended

The integration activities are proceeding smoothly. The acquisition is expected to significantly
enhance shareholder value In the near future.

Business Reconstruction Reserve

The company has formulated a scheme of financial restructuring to deal with various costs
associated with its organic and inorganic growth plan. The recent economic downturn
particularly in the commodity space is also expected to result in impairment / diminution in value
of certain assets/ investments. Accordingly, as per a Scheme of Arrangement under sections 391
to 394 of the Companies Act 1956 ("the Scheme") between the company and its equity
shareholders approved by the High Court of judicature of Bombay, a separate reserve account
titled as Business Reconstruction Reserve ("BRR") has been created by transferring balance
standing to the credit of Securities Premium Account of the company for adjustment of certain
expenses as prescribed therein. Accordingly, Rs. 8,647 crore has been transferred to BRR and
Rs. 67 crore in standalone accounts and Rs. 4616 crore in consolidated accounts have been
adjusted against the same as per the Scheme during the year.

The directors have recommended a dividend of Rs. 1.35 per share. ( Rs. 1.85 per share). This
will be paid in line with the applicable regulations. The total outgo including the tax on dividend
would be Rs. 268.60 crore (Rs. 265.5 crore)
Industry outlook


Global primary consumption showed a 3 per cent increase in H1 FY 09 vis-à-vis H1 FY 08 but

due to the recession and slowdown, year FY 09 finally ended on a negative growth rate of 7 per
cent as compared to FY 08. China which has been a strong driver with double digit growth in the
last decade also suffered a negative growth. The production was maintained at FY 08 levels,
creating a demand-supply gap which:

Led to rise of LME inventory to 3.5 million tons i.e. more than 3 times the April 2008 levels
Slide in LME prices from $3000 /t in June 2008 to $1254/t in February 2009
Announcement of more than 5.5 million tons cutbacks of high costs smelters in North America,
Europe, South America and China The demand seems to have hit the bottom and revival of the
industry is expected by end of Q1 FY 10.


With the global economy on the road to recovery, driven by the expected increase in Chinese
demand by 10 per cent, the lack of secondary material and delay in mining projects, the copper
prices would be between $3000-6000 per MT.

The benchmark TCRC for CY 2009 witnessed an increase of 66 per cent over CY 2008.
However, the gain on TCRC was largely offset due to reduced by product credits, mainly on
account of sharp decline in sulfuric acid prices.

Overall, the copper concentrate market is expected to remain in deficit during CY 10 due to an
increase in smelting capacity in China and lack of addition of major mining projects. This would
put pressure on spot TCRC.

Further the demand growth in the Indian copper consumption would be robust particularly in the
power cables, transformers and other related segments and also due to the thrust on energy
efficiency and infrastructure development.

Company outlook

The business continues to be impacted by the overall slow down in the global economy and the
unprecedented fall in commodity prices. The short-term outlook seems negative. However the
long term market fundamentals remain strong.

Aggressive cost control measures, stretched operational efficiency, enhanced asset productivity
and containment of input cost along with effective working capital management to maximize
free cash flow, will continue to be the major growth drivers.

With the intense focus on operational efficiency and synergy between businesses, the company
intends to grow in current and new markets in terms of geography and product portfolio.
