Shree Cement reported strong Q2FY20 results surpassing ours as well as consensus estimates by wide margin.

Sales volume at 5.7mn was up 1% YoY against our expectation of a 6% decline.

Total operating costs per tonne declined sharply by 2% QoQ and 7% YoY driven by lower RM costs and other expenses. Aggregate EBITDA/mt at...

Shree Cement posted better-than-expected standalone net profit for Q2FY2020 at Rs. 309 crore (up 10% y-o-y on adjusted Q2FY2019 PAT).

Consequently, cement EBITDA/tonne grew by 54% y-o-y to Rs. 1,452.

Completely defying the realisation challenges witnessed in 2QFY20, Shree Cement (SRCM) has reported a super performance in 2QFY20. While EBITDA zoomed by a stellar 62% YoY (-6% QoQ) to Rs8.4bn (vs. our estimate of Rs6.7bn), cement EBITDA/tonne stood at strong Rs1,451 (Rs314 higher than our estimate) as against Rs946 in 2QFY19 and Rs1,443 in 1QFY20. Higher than expected EBITDA/tonne is attributable to: (a) Rs100 lower opex/tonne than estimated; and (b) Rs213/tonne higher realisation than estimated. Sales volume remained soft as per expectations at 5.72mnT (+1.5% QoQ and -5.5% QoQ), while average cement realisation improved by 9% YoY (-1.1% QoQ) to Rs4,356/tonne despite having significant presence in Eastern region.

21 October 2019 Volumes grew by a muted ~1.5% YoY to 5.72mt. Realization was up ~9% YoY (-1% QoQ) to INR4,654/t (our line), power revenue was down 22% YoY to INR1.4b (26% miss). As a result, total revenue of INR28b (+8% YoY) came in line with our estimate. Total cost/t of INR3,201/t (-2% YoY/QoQ) was below our estimate of INR3,277/t due to lower freight cost (down 8% QoQ to INR1,013/t). Cement EBITDA/t thus came in 16% above our estimate at INR1,453/t (+46% YoY) and the highest in the last 10 years. Power EBITDA, however, was weaker than expected at INR130m (- 68% YoY, -54% QoQ) due to lower realized tariff. Tax rate stood at 23% for the quarter. Adj. PAT was up 36% YoY to equity raise of up to INR30b (5% dilution at CMP). Performance was strong with revenue/EBITDA/PAT up 3%/40%/33% YoY to INR58b/INR17.5b/INR6.

Shree Cement's (SRCM) 1QFY20 results were below our expectation but in-line with consensus. SRCM reported EBITDA of Rs9.02bn, up 57% YoY, largely driven by sharp uptick in realizations and controlled costs. The company reported sales/PAT of Rs30.4bn/Rs3.63bn, -1%/30% YoY.
