Bengaluru, May 24, 2023 – Hitachi Energy India Ltd. announces results for January to March 2023, and for the financial period from April 2022 to March 2023.

* Comparative figures for 12 months since previous financial year was for 15-month period (Jan 01, 2021 to Mar 31, 2022)

**The company evaluates the profitability based on Operational EBITA. Operational EBITA represents income from operations excluding: (i) amortization expense on intangibles, (ii) restructuring and restructuring-related expenses, (iii) non-operational pension cost, (iv) gains and losses from sale of businesses, acquisition-related expenses and certain non-operational items, as well as (v) foreign exchange/commodity timing differences in income from operations consisting of: (a) unrealized gains and losses on derivatives (foreign exchange, commodities, embedded derivatives), (b) unrealized foreign exchange movements on receivables/payables (and related assets/liabilities).

“Our success is a result of our focused strategy, diversified portfolio, and relentless pursuit for improving the bottomline,” said N Venu, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Hitachi Energy India Ltd. “The price of certain commodities specific to our industry remain high and chips & electronics shortage persist. We have resiliently navigated these challenges and remain optimistic about leveraging opportunities arising from the fast-evolving energy transition along with customers and stakeholders,” he added.


In the quarter ending March 31, 2023, we received orders worth INR 1,262 crore, flat QoQ, driven by utilities, transportation and industries and reflecting energy transition and electrification drive, especially to renewables. Industries, especially, steel and metals, contributed towards orders for High Voltage Products and Transformers as well as embracing digitalization with solutions such as Coresense™, RelCare and MSM. In the transportation segment, electrification of railways, adoption of new age locomotives and metro led to demand for our transformer and substation automation products.

Services and exports have continued to deliver this quarter with orders from metal and steel industries for high voltage products, datacenters, RelCare and RelScan order across wide-ranging companies, automation orders for utilities. During the quarter, exports contributed 19 percent of orders from Middle East, Africa and Japan. Our strategy of making in India for India & the world is coming to fruition with some of our feeder factories recording their highest ever orders in the quarter.

As of March 31, 2023, order backlog stood at INR 7,071 crore providing revenue visibility for the coming quarters.


Revenue improved 28 percent QoQ reaching INR 1,336.3 crore for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, on the back of strong order pipeline with greater export contribution. Strategic approach and go-to-market mechanism focusing on high growth segments have helped us execute and deliver solutions tailored around customer demands. Consistent focus on liquidity and cash helped us provision against future headwinds.


While shortage of chips and electronics continued and inflation loomed, profit before tax quadrupled to INR 65.1 crore and profit after tax was up more than ten-fold to INR 50.8 crore, over a weak previous quarter. A range of measures to drive productivity by streamlining our supply chain, transforming our manufacturing processes and bringing continuous improvement with optimization and digitalization, have helped us reduce cost.

Full Year

For the full year, ending March 31, 2023, orders were INR 6,817.2 crores up 84 percent from the corresponding last twelve months, while revenue stood at INR 4,483.70 crores with 14 percent increase during the same period.

As we entered the year, we met with challenges of rising inflation and continued shortage of chips & electronics, which was curtailing business profitability. We remained optimistic and focused towards increasing operational efficiencies while expanding our portfolio in the high growth markets.

Our acute focus towards building sustainable operations helped us continue our journey towards carbon-neutrality. Our operations across offices and projects sites continue to maintain 100% fossil free electricity consumption. The Company has reduced its CO2 equivalent emissions by more than 45% since the commencement of its journey to carbon neutral.

We have placed sustainability at the heart of our purpose: advancing a sustainable energy future for our partners and customers. Over the last few years, becoming Hitachi Energy, we have unwavering commitment to quality, customer-centricity and innovation which has helped us build relationships with our customers and stakeholder. Our focus on transparency and accountability has further cemented our reputation as a reliable partner and helped us earn the recognition of Most Trusted Brands of India by Marksmen group and the Golden Peacock Award for Corporate Governance by Indian Institute of Directors.

Fundamental market drivers remain intact due to the acceleration of the energy transition despite geopolitical tensions and macro economic challenges. This provides medium to long term opportunities for power technologies, especially in our identified high growth segments – renewables, HVDC, data centers, transport, etc. However, in the short term, supply of chips and electronics will only gradually improve with manufacturing capacities clearing out backlog over the coming quarters.
