India’s KEC International, an infrastructure engineering procurement and construction (EPC) firm, won new orders worth INR10.65bn ($141.68m) across its various businesses, the company said in a regulatory update on Friday.

Shares of KEC rose to INR449.80 after the news but closed 0.27% down at INR431.35 on the National Stock Exchange today.

A flagship company of business conglomerate RPG Group, KEC secured orders for its transmission and distribution (T&D) business from India, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas. The company’s railway unit secured an order for construction of railway siding in India, the update added.

“Our order book continues to grow on the backdrop of orders secured across all our business verticals,” said KEC International managing director and chief executive Vimal Kejriwal.

Orders across all verticals

“The continuous orders in T&D have significantly enhanced our order book, especially in the international markets. We are particularly enthused by the order in railways, which further consolidate our leadership in the conventional railway segment,” he added.

“The order in civil has strengthened our presence in the growing water infra segment. With these orders, our year-to-date order intake stands at INR110bn with strong growth of 2.5 times visà-vis last year. These orders along with the orders announced earlier, reaffirm our confidence in achieving the targeted growth going forward,” Kejriwal added.

At present, the firm is executing infrastructure projects across 30 countries and has a footprint in 105 countries.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
