distributor of this report
remains critical Rs25
Reason for report: Q4FY18 result review and recommendation change
Power Adani Power’s adjusted Q4FY18 EBITDA of Rs923mn was down 93% YoY, missing
our estimate by 72%. The EBITDA underperformance was driven by: 1) lower than
expected adjusted realisations (Rs3.6/kWhr in Q4FY18 vs our estimate of
Target price Rs24 Rs3.9/kWhr) and higher than expected other expenditure. As a result, the
company’s adjusted net loss deteriorated from Rs9bn in Q4FY17 to Rs18.6bn in

Q4FY18, missing our loss estimate of Rs16.5bn. During the quarter, Adani Power

given the following concerns: i) Mundra PPAs have become unviable post Supreme
Court’s adverse ruling, ii) the company’s balance sheet is stretched post CT write-off,
and iii) APL’s aggressive inorganic expansion plans. Risks of INR depreciation, lower
merchant utilisation, and increasing coal prices could impact financials. However,
resolution or demerger of Mundra could be a potential rerating catalyst.

Q4FY18 earnings call takeaways


 Company reported overall plant availability at 93% in Q4FY18 (O&M availability,
billed availability at 62% for Mundra).
 PLF stood at 37% in Q4FY18 vs 73% in Q4FY17.

forced outage in Udupi and commercial shutdown in Mundra. Management stated
that penalties from commercially backing down Mundra are lower than losses
incurred from operating the plant at current international coal prices
 As per the management, international coal prices have remained elevated due to
higher Chinese coal import demand, resulting in higher under-recovery at Mundra.

since Feb’18. Cost of coal allotted under SHAKTI is Rs2.2/kWhr (on generation

Valuation methodology and risks


We downgrade Adani Power to REDUCE from Hold with a revised SoTP-based target
price of Rs24/share (Rs27/share previously).

The upside risks to our call are: i) resolution or offloading of stake in Mundra, ii) further
equity dilution at attractive prices boosting financials, iii) higher merchant realisations,
and iv) lower than expected fuel costs.
