This was a clear testament to our strategic focus on value-added products and margin improvement. The Copper business has grown to become the 2nd largest in the world for Copper rods (excluding China). It achieved its best ever performance with sales crossing 500,000 tonnes for the first time, and an alltime high EBITDA for the quarter and the year.

Similarly, the Aluminium India upstream business reported industry-best quarterly EBITDA margins of 32%, driven by higher volumes and cost optimisation. Our continued focus on enhancing share of the downstream segment is evident in its promising sales trajectory. Novelis demonstrated an improved EBITDA per tonne driven by lower operating costs, favourable metal benefits and market recovery.

We continue to maintain a strong balance sheet and solid liquidity even after repaying ₹5,195 crore of debt in Hindalco India business during the year. This positions us well to stay on our growth track and drive our future organic growth plans with prudent capital allocation.?
