SAILs 1QFY21 result was weak, as expected, with EBITDA loss of ~INR4.0b posted due to weak domestic demand and prices. SAIL guided for improvement in longs steel prices, led by demand In 2QFY21, raw material cost is likely to benefit from decline in coking coal prices. SAILs gross debt stood at INR544b at 1QFY21-end; however, it declined to INR498b at Aug-end owing to improved sales and liquidation of inventory. With improved pricing, lower coking coal costs, and better operating leverage, we expect SAIL to record EBITDA/t in excess of INR6,000/t in 2QFY21. As a result, SAILs finished steel inventory, which stood at 1.65mt in Jun20, declined to 1.23mt at Aug-end. In 1QFY21, SAIL sold 2.2mt of steel, of which exports stood at 0.5mt. SAIL guided for improvement in longs steel prices, led by demand improvement INR10,800/t in Aug20.

SAILs third quarter result reflects the challenges faced by industry, with EBITDA/ton down 69% YoY at INR2,439 due to a sharp decline in steel prices. We expect sales volume CAGR of 6% over FY20-22 as demand improves and capacity ramps up. Operating leverage benefits from higher volumes and better steel prices are likely to lead to improved margins. Coking coal cost is not expected to decline in 4QFY20 as price has moved up to USD150/t currently; there is a two-month lag in realization of spot prices at Based on FY19 iron ore production of 28 MMT, SAIL can sell up to 7 MMT (25% of 28 MMT) iron ore in the merchant market in FY20. which is one of SAILs largest customers, has had budgetary constraints, resulting in higher receivables and slower-than-expected deleveraging; dues from IR are at INR37b v/s normal level of INR8-10b.

We are seeing Steel Authority of India Ltd. to emerge as strong winner on the back of strong expectation of revival in domestic demand growth across Infrastructure space backed by government spending and initiatives. Permission from government to sell 25% of Iron ore production of previous fiscal and iron ore fines accumulated as waste over past 5-6 decades to add ~10% to its EBITDA. US-China trade agreement is expected to revive metals. SAIL is expected to sail with the wind from iron ore mine lease expiries and uptick in steel demand to boost its profits and reduce leverage. A major turnaround in SAIL with favorable scenarios building in is expected to unlock great value for its stakeholders. Iron ore fines are turning into Gold' for SAIL: We expect SAIL to be major beneficiary of Government relaxation to sell 25% of previous FY iron ore captive production along with sub-grade iron ore fines that are accumulated over past half century on expectations of scarcity of material due to lease expiries of iron ore mines in Odisha. The company has 70MnT of sub-grade iron ore with average quality of 59% Fe content and expects to sell off these...
