21 November 2018 NHPCs many recently commissioned projects are still not contributing to PAT. Kishanganga 330MW is breaking even at PAT, pending final approval of tariff order. Parbati-3 has been commercialized, and 2 units of 200MW of Prabati-2 have been commissioned but full revenue recognition will be post completion NHPCs standalone (S/A) PAT increased 20% YoY to INR12.2b in 2QFY19, led by generation growth of 11% (aided by commercialization of the 50MW solar unit in Mar18), the resumption of TLDP-3&4 and the absence of revenue reversal for Parbati-3, partly offset by lower other income and regulatory revenue. NHPC has stopped recognizing regulatory revenue against the Lower Subhanshari project, which has been stalled since Dec11. This will drag PBT by INR1.1b every quarter until the project is restarted. Renewable energy projects have contributed PBT of INR217m in 1HFY19. We lower FY19/20E PAT by 7/12% to ~INR23.4b/27.4b, primary due to the loss of regulatory revenue from the Lower Subhanshari project. We expect under-recoveries to reduce in FY20 on approval of pending final tariff for five projects and pass-through of wage hike in new regulation 2019-24.

Final report on Subansiri by MoEF has been kept reserved as the NGT is yet to decide whether the project is to be appraised through the current committee or form a new committee.

The under-recovery in O&M cost is more than INR5.5b. It would decline to less than INR2b when the O&M norms are reset in the next tariff regulations in FY20. The decline in under-recoveries will also be aided by reduction in number of employees (count has reduced from ~8,000 in FY17 to ~7,500 in FY18 and will decline to ~6,500). The revenue under-recovery of INR1.5b- 2b per year on four projects due to over-run in capital cost, which is pending approval, is also likely to be recovered by FY20. Of the four projects, three are in the first review stage of CEA, while one is in the second review stage of PIB. The final stage is approval by CCEA

Regulated equity to increase 35 %, despite Subhanshiri project being on hold NHPC is targeting commercialization of the 330MW Kishanganga project from January 2018 and the 800MW Parbati-II project from December 2018. These two projects will increase AES in capacity by 19 % and attributing regulated equity (ARE) by 35 %. The 2,000MW Subhanshiri project remains on hold for now. Under-recoveries to decline on natural attrition and approval of five tariff orders O&M under recoveries have peaked, in our view. Wage bill growth will be muted due to high natural attrition, while existing manpower can manage new projects. We expect approval of capex for the five projects over the next few years, which can boost recurring PAT by INR1.5b. Higher dividend payout is boosting RoE; room for even higher payout/buyback Capital allocation has improved with a payout of INR113b in four years. Debtor days have come down after the implementation of the UDAY scheme for DISCOMs. Net worth (NW) in non-core business has dropped from 51 % to 36 %, and RoE has improved from 8.7 % to 9.9 % over FY13-17. Another 32 % of NW can be paid out, which is not deployed in core business
