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.

CESC Limited's (CESC) Q1FY2021 standalone PAT declined by 38.2% y-o-y (down by 46.4% q-o-q) to Rs. 134 crore, below our estimate of Rs. 193 crore due to lower plant-load factor (PLF) based incentive income as volume slumped by 30.7% y-o-y to 2,118 million units and higher per unit cost of electricity purchased (up 15% y-o-y). However, the decline of 14.7% y-o-y in the consolidated PAT to Rs. 198 crore was much lower as compared to the decline in PAT for the standalone business due to: 1) better profitability of Dhariwal Infrastructure (PAT of Rs. 24 crore versus a net loss of Rs. 24 crore in Q1FY2020) and 2) reduction in losses at distribution franchisee...

However, a shortfall in other income negated the EBITDA beat. Consequently, PAT was marginally lower than estimates.

Q4FY20 earnings are expected to be disappointing in Emkay's power coverage universe. Demand across India fell significantly in the second half of March after the country was locked down to contain the spread of Covid-19. Thus, PLF across stations was impacted, but availability picked up due to improved inventory levels. However, the power ministry's move to provide a moratorium on bill payments is likely to impact discoms' collection efficiency and would stretch its working capital. This is likely to have a cascading impact on the electricity chain of discoms, transmission, gencos and eventually the banks, all of...
