Tata Steel Ltd (TISC.NS) reported on Wednesday a consolidated quarterly loss of Rs 56.74 billion ($888.8 million) for its fiscal fourth quarter to March 31.
Consolidated net sales for the quarter fell about 21 per cent from a year earlier to Rs 333.4 billion, hit by weak steel prices and international demand.
The results follow the company's announcement last week of about $785 million non-cash charge in the fourth quarter, mainly related to its loss-making long products unit in the United Kingdom.
Tata Steel, Europe's second-largest steelmaker, has been in talks with Geneva-based Klesch Group for the sale of its European long-products unit and said last week said it would take the impairment charge.
