The expected decline in company’s profit is mainly attributed to lower volumetric sales during the last quarter. As the company increased its prices of Cold Rolled Coil (CRC) and Hot Dipped Galvanized Coil (HDGC) due to PKR devaluation which are expected to impact demand negatively.

Furthermore, higher finance cost due to increase in borrowings for higher working capital requirements and hike in interest rate during FY19 is also expected to play a major role in declining company’s earnings.
