JSW Steel Limited has reported its results for the Third Quarter ended 31st Dec, 2021. During the Quarter, JSW Steel reported Crude Steel Production of 4.41 million tonnes, an increase of 8% QoQ led by an increase in average capacity utilization to 94% from the existing operations and production of 0.18 million tonnes from the recently commissioned Dolvi Phase-2 expansion. Sales of Saleable Steel for the quarter was 4.00 million tonnes, higher by 6% QoQ, led by a 29% increase in domestic sales, driven by demand from automotive, solar and appliance sectors. Exports were moderated to 15% of sales during the Quarter vs. 30% of sales in Q2 of FY2022. The quarterly EBITDA margin of 23.6% was lower QoQ primarily due to elevated prices of coking coal and higher power cost while domestic Iron ore prices during the Quarter softened in line with global indices, partly offsetting the cost increase.
