The order book of IRB Infra stands at Rs11,700 crore, out of which Rs9,700 crore worth of EPC order book will be executed over the period of 3-4 years
Highways developer IRB Infrastructure Developers said it expects a 25% jump in its toll revenues to Rs1,000 crore by end this fiscal.
"We expect a 25% jump in toll revenues to Rs1,000 crore in FY12. There has been an increase in both tariff and traffic," IRB Infra chairman and managing director Virendra D Mhaiskar told reporters following the company's 13th annual general meeting.
The order book of the company stands at Rs11,700 crore, out of which Rs9,700 crore worth of EPC order book will be executed over the period of 3-4 years, he said. Out of 17 projects, 10 projects are already operational, six are under implementation and one is under financial closure.
"Surat-Dahisar and Kolhapur projects works have been almost 95% completed and the Goa project appointed date yet to be received from NHAI due to land acquisition issues," he said. The strong uptick in execution of projects is likely to result in 15%-20% jump in the topline of the company in FY12, Mhaiskar said. The company expects to tie up Rs3,500 crore in debt for a road project by end this calendar year.
"The debt part will be Rs3,500 crore which is 75% of the total cost of 1,000-lane-km Ahmedabad-Vadodara road project, he said.
When asked about the impact of the interest rate hike on the company's projects, he said, "Last year was tough for the infrastructure sector. Stagnation project bidding, rising interest rates and land acquisition issues have been the head winds slowing down the growth in general."
In the late afternoon, IRB Infra was trading at around Rs140.40 per share on the Bombay Stock Exchange, 4.36% down from the previous close.
