HEG: Message from CFO in Dalal Street Journal

As a CFO of HEG, My top three strategic priorities are Invest for growth, enhance shareholders value and align finance and operational decision based on data.

There is a structural change in the graphite electrode industry, both on the demand as well as supply side. The major influencing factor to increase the demand for graphite electrode globally including China has been the conscious effort to replace the highly polluting induction furnaces and small blast furnaces since early 2017. We have witnessed the continuity of the drive in 2018 and anticipate the same going forward. This has resulted in large-scale closing down of steel capacities in China, thereby reducing the export of steel to the rest of the world by 40% to 50%. These structural changes have resulted in the demand growth exceeding supply and hence there is a shortage of electrodes worldwide - Shri Raju Rustogi.
