Birla Corp's debt had risen with the acquisition of RCCPL assets. The company has also undertaken greenfield capacity expansion at an estimated cost of ~| 2500 crore in Maharashtra. This project would be funded by debt to the extent of 70-75%, leading to further addition in debt. The decision to keep the Kundanganj brownfield expansion on hold would help keep leverage from increasing further. We expect debt to peak in FY21 (refer...

Realization was better with 5.7% YoY uptick, resulting in better EBITDA/mt performance. Operating cost was flat YoY as decline in raw material cost was offset by an increase in other expenses. EBITDA/mt, as a result, came in at Rs1,044, which was only the second instance after June 2019 that the company has reported EBITDA/mt above Rs1,000.

We maintain BUY with and upgrade our TP (Rs 1,455, 12.0x Sep-19 EV/EBITDA US$138/t). Birla Corps (BCORP) numbers beat estimates (Rs 638/t, Est Rs 484, 14.2/(10.9)% YoY/QoQ). The beat was primarily on account of lower other operating expenses (Rs 1.0bn vs Rs 1.5bn run-rate in previous 2 quarters). Numbers are not comparable YoY, due to Acquired ops being included from August 22, 2016. The 2QFY18 delivery was in spite of the severe sand shortages in UP and Bihar.

Maintain BUY with a TP of Rs 1,160 (10.0x June-19 EV/EBITDA). Continued strong delivery should see BCORP rerate in-line with its peers of similar size and earnings. Birla Corps (BCORP) standalone EBITDA missed estimates (Rs 1.04bn, -20.2/9.5% YoY/QoQ, est Rs 1.21bn), owing to lower volumes (2.1mT, -1.2% YoY) and a sharp jump in P&F; costs. Acquired operations (RCCPL) delivered Rs 1.37bn in EBITDA (-2.5% QoQ, not comparable YoY, EBITDA/t: Rs 1,200). Given UPs sand shortage this is strong delivery. RCCPL reported operational costs at Rs 3,132/t, best-in-class, despite the absence of captive power, making this is the highlight of 1QFY18.
