For the full year, the company saw its net profit jump by over 150 per cent to Rs 198 crore (Rs 79 crore); while total income jumped by 17 per cent to Rs 1,342 crore (Rs 1,151 crore) on a year-on-year basis.

Maithan Alloys manufactures ferro manganese, silicon manganese and ferro silicon from plants at Kalyaneswari (West Bengal), Visakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh) and Ri-Bhoi (Meghalaya). It is also a provider of customised manganese alloys to large industries.

During the year, the company achieved a growth of 4 per cent in volume terms and 17 per cent in value terms with superior product range, technology upgrades and better capacity utilisation, it said in a release.

The substantial increase in PAT was due to rebounding of the metal industry since Q3, and power subsidies announced by various state governments and stabilisation of raw material prices in Q4, it further added.

The board of directors has recommended a dividend of Rs. 2.50 per share of Rs. 10 each for the financial year 2016-17, subject to shareholders approval.
