We raise our FY21 EBITDA estimate by 67% to factor recovery in LME prices, Revenue declined 34% YoY (29% QoQ) to INR13.8b on a lower LME aluminum price of USD1,493/t (-17% YoY; -12% QoQ) and lower aluminum volumes. EBITDA at INR1.3b (-38% QoQ) came in above our estimate of INR81m despite lower-than-expected volumes. Reported EBITDA still declined 40% YoY on lower alumina and It reported positive EBIT at INR470m after four quarters (v/s INR3m loss last year); revenue declined to INR9.3b (-37% YoY; -18% QoQ) on lower LME prices/volumes due to the impact of COVID-19. Aluminum LME prices have recovered to pre-COVID levels and turned positive YoY. We expect NACL to benefit from lower coal prices due to improved coal availability in India and lower input commodity costs such as furnace oil, etc. We maintain our positive stance on NACL considering its integrated business model, high cash levels, and attractive dividend yield.

NACL reported an improved 4QFY20 result, as expected, driven by lower cost of production. We raise our FY21 EBITDA estimate to factor lower input costs in FY21. Revenue declined 30% YoY (-7% QoQ) to INR19.4b on a lower LME aluminum price of USD1,694/t (-9% YoY, -3% QoQ). EBITDA at INR2.1b (+507% QoQ) came in above our estimate of INR1.2b, led by lower-than-expected production costs. Reported EBITDA still declined 60% YoY due to lower alumina and aluminum prices. EBIT loss was at INR0.2b (v/s INR1.9b profit last year); revenue declined to INR11.3b (-34% YoY, -15% QoQ) on lower LME prices/volumes due to the impact of COVID-19. Realization declined 8% YoY (and 3% QoQ) to USD1,905/t on account of lower LME and premiums. As a result, Operating Cashflows (OCF) were negative at INR3.5b. With estimated gradual recovery in aluminum demand, we expect prices to rise further.

Extended monsoons have also disrupted coal supplies in Q3. Hence, operationally Q3 should be weak. In addition, plans to diversify into unrelated minerals outside India at a peak of euphoria for Lithium and Cobalt could be value-dilutive, in our view. We revise FY20E EBITDA/PAT by 62%/66%, factoring in dismal Q2 results and also cut FY21/22E EBITDA by 24%/3% factoring in lower profitability. We value the stock at 4.5x Sep-21E EV/EBITDA.

9 February 2019 INR6.2b) in 3QFY19 owing to lower volumes/realizations and higher cost of production (CoP). The miss versus our estimate can primarily be ascribed to higher Production increased 12% QoQ to 532kt, but sales were down 10% QoQ to 293kt. Production was down 8% QoQ to 105kt, while sales were down USD2,241/t, even as LME was lower, due to higher product premiums. CoP increased USD172 QoQ to USD2,109/t, accentuated by reduced volumes leading to lower absorption of fixed cost. NACLs performance was impacted by alumina prices coming off their recent highs and fixed cost absorption being lower due to reduced volumes. We expect volumes to improve, which should drive down CoP, but the alumina benchmark prices have fallen further as Chinese supply is rising. We cut our alumina price estimate from USD400/t to USD350/t for FY20-21. We have also marginally cut aluminum product premiums and increased CoP.

Production was down 18% QoQ at 477kt due to seasonal factors. Sales, however, increased ~1% QoQ to 324kt, led by destocking. Alumina Calculated cost of production (CoP) increased QoQ. Production increased 4% QoQ (8% YoY) to 114kt, which is now near full capacity. Sales increased ~10% QoQ to 115kt. Aluminum realization declined by USD357 QoQ to USD2,162/t, as against a decline in LME of ~USD200/t. CoP was lower QoQ, aided by operating leverage benefit and currency depreciation. NACL is a key beneficiary of higher alumina prices as it is net long and has the advantage of low-cost captive bauxite. We have cut our alumina price estimate from USD450 to USD400/t for 4QFY19 and FY20.

For the full year FY18, EBITDA increased 54% to INR16.6b driven by increase in sales tonnage of 9% for metal and 3% for alumina, increase in prices by 21% for LME and 43% for alumina, partially offset by 20% jump in wage bill, inflation in coal and other inputs. Adj. PAT increased 37% to INR9.

US sanctions on Rusal (April 2018) and alumina cost push led to ~10% rise in the aluminium prices since Feb'18 end. Besides, supply disruptions, the sanctions also restrict Rusal's ability to complete new projects or ramping up of exiting capacities (1.5-1.6MT), restricting any new supply coming into the market. This, coupled with China's emphasis on environmental sustainability should support aluminium prices in the near to medium term. As we believe that, lower supply from China, low inventory, and deficit (exChina) will continue to support the aluminium prices. Given the recent uptick in aluminium prices, we believe, NALCO should report improvement...

NALC is undertaking various projects to expand capacity by 500kt at smelter, 1mtpa at alumina refinery, etc. We understand that actual spend on alumina project has started, while other projects are still on drawing board. Therefore, we are increasing capex from INR6b in FY18 to INR11b in FY19E. NALC is a play on LME and alumina price. We are factoring in LME of USD2,000/t and alumina prices of USD350/t. The stock trades at 7.2x FY19E EV/EBITDA. We value the stock at INR79/share based on FY20E SOTP. Every USD100 change in LME increases the target price by INR16/share. Maintain Neutral.

NALCO's 2QFY18 EBITDA, as expected, increased by healthy 47% QoQ/95% YoY to INR3.3b driven by higher realization and volumes.

Volume De-growth A Negative Surprise; Maintain HOLD Missing our estimates on all counts, National Aluminium Company (NALCO) has delivered a weak performance in 1QFY18, largely due to lower sales volume and higher input cost. EBITDA increased by 17% YoY (down 47% QoQ) to Rs2.3bn vs. our estimate of Rs3.46bn. While its employee cost surged by 24% YoY to Rs4.3bn owing to provisioning for wage hike, Power & Fuel cost rose by 23% YoY to Rs6.2bn due to increase in electricity duty on captive power generation in Odisha. On the volume front, alumina sales fell by 11% YoY and 31% QoQ to 259,000 tonne vs. our estimate of 330,000 tonne, largely due to inventory build-up ahead...

National Aluminium Company (NALCO) has posted strong performance in 3QFY17, which was largely in-line with our estimate. EBITDA increased by 102% YoY and 66% QoQ to Rs2.9bn tad lower than our estimate of Rs3bn, as its alumina realization declined to US$269/tonne vs. our estimate of US$295/tonne. Continuing its northward movement, power cost rose by 16% YoY and 12% QoQ to Rs5.9bn, which we assume owing to higher coal cost. Despite a dismal performance by aluminium division with marginal EBIT of Rs1,158/tonne in 3QFY17, we continue to remain positive on NALCO as its alumina cost of production being one of the lowest in the world due to...
