Valuation & Outlook
JSW Steel's expansion project at Dolvi from 5 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) to 10 MTPA steelmaking capacity is nearing completion, with majority of operations to be commissioned in Q4FY21. Full integrated operations and stabilisation will take place in Q1FY22. This is expected to lead to volume growth in FY22 and beyond. We introduce FY23E estimates and roll over our valuations to FY23E. We model sales volume of 15 MT in FY21E, 18 MT in FY22E and 20 MT in FY23E. We value the stock at 6x FY23E EV/EBITDA and arrive at a target price of Rs. 400, maintaining our HOLD recommendation on the stock (earlier target price of Rs. 330).
