In Q1FY21, standalone revenue fell 20.8% YoY to Rs. 3,898cr, mainly due to weaker revenue from Zinc (-27.0% YoY, 65.7% of total revenue) and Lead (-11.7% YoY, 15.5% of total revenue). The drop in revenue was attributable to reduced prices (Zinc LME: -29.0% YoY and Lead LME: -11.2%YoY), lower volumes (impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic) and shrunk premiums (due to adverse domestic-export mix), partly offset by rupee depreciation. Mined metal production dropped 5.2% YoY to 202kt owing to outage in April during the lockdown. Saleable Silver production decreased to 117mt (-26.4% YoY) due to delayed stabilization of DSC lead smelter and increase in WIP,...

Hindustan Zinc (HZ) reported earnings in line with ours/consensus estimates. HZ missed its guidance on volumes and ore grade over past couple of years due to delay in commissioning of shafts and weaker than assessed ore grade. As the new shafts at both Rampura Agucha (RA) and Sindesar Khurd (SK) mines commenced hauling of ore, we expect significant improvement in quality of operations with better visibility on production and lower costs. In last five years since FY15, ore grade has fallen by ~30% to 7.5% due to fall in...

21 July 2020 Revenue declined 9% QoQ (-20% YoY) to INR39.9b (v/s est. INR37.8b), primarily due to decline in volumes (208kt, -6% QoQ), Zinc LME (-8% QoQ) and premiums offset by currency depreciation (5%). Hindustan Zincs (HZ) 1QFY21 results reflect impact of the COVID-19 led shutdown, lower LME and adverse sales mix (higher exports). EBITDA was down 14% QoQ to INR15.8b (6% higher than est.), aided by lower costs. However, PAT inched up 1% QoQ to INR13.6b on higher other income (v/s est. We expect HZs EBITDA at 11% CAGR over FY20-22E despite lower LME, primarily on ~10% volume CAGR to 1,034kt. Maintain Derived Zinc realizations declined 11% QoQ to USD2,070/t (v/s 8% decline in LME zinc) due to lower realized premiums, which in turn was on account of higher exports (70% of volumes v/s normal level of 25%).

21 January 2020 3QFY20 results broadly reflect Hindustan Zincs (HZL) continuing challenges in ramping up production. While mined metal production did recover (+4% QoQ), it was on a low, seasonally weak base. Revenue/EBITDA was up 4%/8% QoQ (in-line). We expect volumes to recover in 4QFY20 as production issues recede with ramp-up from SK mines. We build in 17% QoQ improvement in EBITDA for 4QFY20 on higher volumes and lower costs. However, at 6x FY21E EV/EBITDA, this benefit is well baked in. Maintain HZLs EBITDA was up 8% QoQ at INR22.9b (in line with est) on the back of some sequential recovery in volumes. Refined metal production rose 4% QoQ to 219kt. Revenue also increased 4% QoQ on higher zinc/silver volumes and slightly better LME prices. PBT came in at INR21b (flat QoQ). PAT, though decreased 22% QoQ to INR16.2b (5% lower than est.) as 2QFY20 had deferred tax credits of INR3.65b.

29 October 2019 Hindustan Zincs (HZL) EBITDA of INR21.2b (-15% QoQ) was in line with our estimate of INR21.1b as the impact of lower metal volumes (-1% QoQ; 5% miss) was offset by higher- than-expected zinc premiums. PBT of INR20.9b exceeded our estimate by 7% due to higher other income (INR5.9b) led by MTM gains on investments. PAT too increased 18% QoQ to INR20.8b (29% beat), driven by deferred tax credits of INR3.7b given the change in tax law. Geo-tech issues at SK mine continued, resulting in lower total mine production (-6% YoY). A new ore body of the mine encountered faults, necessitating a change in the mine plan and also a shift to lower-grade ore. Kayad mine too witnessed thinning out of ore body, leading to lower grades. Overall, grade slipped to 7.2% of ore mined (v/s 7.3% in 1QFY20 and 7.

Despite growth in production (zinc and lead volumes up 2.3% YoY), revenue was impacted by weak metal prices, with Zinc and Lead prices falling 11.2% and 21.1% YoY, respectively. EBITDA declined 8.7% YoY to Rs. 2,477cr. with EBITDA margin falling 140bps YoY to 49.7%, owing to a weaker mix and higher costs. Zinc cost of production increased 6% YoY.

19 July 2019 EBITDA of INR24.8b (-11% QoQ/-9% YoY) came in line with our estimate of INR24.5b, as the impact from lower metal volumes (-6% QoQ) was offset by higher-than-expected zinc premiums. PAT declined 12% QoQ/8%YoY to INR17.7b. Management expects SKs production to improve with the commissioning of the paste fill plant (Jun19). Reported CoP increased USD80/t QoQ to USD1,067/t due to lower volumes and higher power cost. However, HZ expects CoP to decline amid normalization of power cost, volume-led benefit and lower coal costs. While the zinc market remains in deficit, factors such as (a) demand concerns due to ongoing trade war/weakening global demand and (b) anticipated higher supply have led to a fall in LME zinc prices to ~USD2,480 zinc LME estimate to INR2,600. We expect mine production CAGR of 8% over FY19-21 and CoP to decline as shafts commission at RA and SKM.

2 May 2019 Hindustan Zinc (HZL)s 4QFY19 EBITDA at INR27.9b (-1% QoQ) came in 8% higher vs. our estimate led by higher silver yield, higher by-product revenue and better zinc premium.

Mine production was 1% lower QoQ (-4% YoY) due to geological challenges in Jan & Feb. Refined metal production declined 6% QoQ. Sales of zinc decreased 5% QoQ to 177kt, while lead declined 4% QoQ to 52kt. Sales of silver though rose 12% QoQ to 199t indicating higher yield. Reported cost of production (CoP) declined USD10/t QoQ to USD987/t on higher coal linkage materialization and lower diesel costs, partly offset by higher mine development expenses. Zinc market is still tight despite muted demand growth.
