During the year under review, the company widened its raw material supplier base, optimised its power consumption, improved operational efficiencies and achieved new customer approvals. FY 2015 was one of the most challenging years for HEG Ltd as the graphite electrode industry saw erosion in margins. During the year under review, HEG Ltd took major initiatives to usher in qualitative improvement. A keen emphasis was laid on optimising costs across all operational and commercial areas. The company's focus on reducing working capital continued to show improvements in the level of plant inventories, receivables and other current assets, thereby releasing cash for productive purposes. During the financial year ended 31 March 2016, HEG Ltd focused on improving operating and cost parameters to counter the impact of fall in graphite electrode prices. By reformulating its operational management discipline and undertaking several cost-cutting measures HEG Ltd was able to reduce the impact of declining profit margins. Reduced capacity utilisation as a result of reduced demand, provided the time and space to the management to figure out ways and means to efficiently utilise the capacities at its disposal. New recipes for both electrodes and nipples were introduced for better quality. A keen emphasis was laid on optimising costs across all operational and commercial areas. The company's effort to match reduced levels of capacity utilisation with corresponding reduction in working capital paid off.

The Board of Directors of HEG Ltd at its meeting held on 30 May 2017 accorded its in-principle approval for closure of its wholly owned subsidiary i.e. HEG Graphite Products and Services Limited. This wholly owned subsidiary was incorporated in the year 2009 but never carried out any commercial operation. The financial year ended 31 March 2018 was a record year for HEG Ltd largely driven by favourable tailwinds- robust growth in demand even as supply remained constrained, leading to a significant rise in product price realisation. This resulted in the best ever financial numbers. The company registered its ever highest ever net profit of Rs 1,081.34 crore. The company registered the highest electrode production at 64,000-plus MT in 2017-18 against 50,000 MT level in 2016-17. Even as demand surged, the company continued to strengthen its operational efficiencies. The company repaid its entire long-term debt and has plans to invest the cash surplus in avenues that enable it to sustain its growth momentum.
