New Delhi, 20th May, 2015: DLF Limited recorded consolidated revenues of Rs 8,168 crore for the financial year ended 31st March 2015, down by 17% from Rs 9,790 crore in previous financial year. EBIDTA stood at Rs 3,543 crore, reflecting a decrease of 11% from Rs 3,977 crore. Net profit stood at Rs 540 crore, as compared to Rs 646 crore in FY14. The EPS for the year stood at Rs 3.03. The Board of Directors was pleased to declare a dividend of Rs 2 per share for the last fiscal. Revenues for Q4 FY15 stood at Rs. 2,101 crore, an increase of 1% from Rs 2,080 crore in Q3FY15. EBIDTA stood at Rs 843 crore, a decline of 8% from Rs 918 crore. Consolidated PAT was at Rs 172 crore, an increase of 30% from Rs 132 crore in the previous quarter.

In the year gone by, the ensuing high interest rates and consequent low consumer demand have adversely impacted the real estate sector in the country. Despite the continued headwinds, the Company witnessed enthusiastic response for its luxury segment products in DLF5 viz. the “Camellias” and the “Crest”. Compared to the residential business, the business of leasing offices and retail malls showed much better traction and decent growth of 1.5 msf.

The government has taken both legislative and executive measures to revitalise the economy which include modifying FDI policies for various industries, de-bottlenecking and targeting higher infrastructure spend and plans to create smart cities.

With REITs policy clarity in place and the recent measures taken by the Government to address certain impediments pertaining to tax issues, a whole new avenue has emerged for the sector to generate long term free cash flows and recycle capital for further growth. Subject to requisite approvals, the Company is gearing itself to set up at least one REIT platform within this fiscal year.

In order to keep debt at manageable and comfortable levels, especially in the DevCo, the Company is in talks with certain strategic investors for setting up Joint Ventures at the project level for its residential business. This will enable the Company to unlock some of the embedded value in land today itself by sharing future financial returns with the investors.
