Key Investment Highlights
Favorable demand- supply scenario
On the back of a 9.2% CAGR in the domestic steel consumption demand for Managanese is expected to more than double from 2.4 mt to ~ 5 mt by FY12. Approximately 90% of the Manganese ore is used in steel production and with India being a net importer of manganese, the company is well placed to benefit from the demand supply mismatch.

Largest producer of Manganese ore; high reserve base
MOIL is the largest producer of Manganese Ore in India (516,749 tonnes for H2FY11) and accounts for almost 50% of India’s total production. It has access to significant resources and reserves and 55% of its proved and proven resources have average manganese content of 40% or higher, 27.5% of its proved and proven resources have average manganese content of 36-39.9%. This combines favorably with the Indian manganese reserves, 51% of which are of low or mixed grade.

Eyeing Overseas Acquisitions to expand resource base
With the limited manganese reserves in the country and on the back of growing steel demand, MOIL is all set to expand its resource base. MOIL along with NMDC, India’s largest iron ore producer, is exploring opportunities in South Africa, Congo & Turkey to expand its resource base. Besides manganese, MOIL is also diversifying its product portfolio and eyeing nickel & chromite properties abroad.

Low cost of mining and huge cash reserves make for compelling financials

MOIL is a low cost producer of managanese with the average cost of mining of Rs 2058 per tonne. Its debt free capital structure with cash reserves of Rs 17,629 million provides it sufficient resources to fund its expansion and acquisition plans, support the working capital requirements
