CESC reported its Q2FY21 results which were below estimates on all fronts. EBIDTA got impacted mainly on account of higher employee costs and other expenses. Even the PAT was aided by negative tax charge.
Q2FY21 Earnings Summary
- Reported revenues came in at Rs. 1980 crore vs. estimate of Rs. 2234.9 crore. We do not have the operational data but we sense lower than expected energy sold would have led to revenue miss. The consolidated revenues came in at Rs. 2990 crore, flat YoY
- EBITDA came in at Rs. 338 crore vs. our estimate of Rs. 490.1 crore. The miss was on account of higher employee expenses and other expenses which came in at Rs. 254 crore and Rs. 250 crore vs. our estimate of Rs. 245 and Rs. 223 crore respectively
- Reported PAT came in at Rs. 228 crore vs. our estimate of Rs. 274.4 crore. This would have been lower if the tax outgo would have been positive during Q2YF21. Consolidated PAT came in at Rs. 371 crore
We would be coming out with a detailed report soon.
