This, given the lack of a revised tariff order, impacted efficiency Consolidated PAT decreased ~15% YoY to INR2.0b in the quarter, partly supported by an improved performance at Dhariwal. Dhariwal reported profit of INR240m (v/s loss of ~INR240m in 1QFY20) on account of a new PPA signed and the pass-through of higher coal cess in tariff. Dhariwal had signed a 185MW PPA with Maharashtra in 3QFY20, and the same has been extended up to 31 Losses at DFs in Rajasthan declined to INR330m in 1QFY21, from INR530m in 1QFY20, despite lower demand. The stock trades at an attractive ~6x FY22E P/E, even as earnings visibility at Dhariwal improves, and factoring the tightening of norms at Haldia and S/A. We also expect the performances of DFs to improve as it gains a better understanding of the circles and leverages from its experience in CESCs generation assets generate healthy FCF.
