IndiGrid increases distribution to INR 3.10 per unit / Quarter

Posted On: 2021-01-22 04:23:47 (Time Zone: Arizona, USA)

IndiGrid [BSE: 540565 | NSE: INDIGRID], India's first power sector InvIT, announced its results for the quarter ended December 31, 2020. Q3 FY21 consolidated revenue stood at INR 4,322 million, up 27% YoY on the back of accretive acquisitions. Robust operations and steady availability supported an increase of 25% in the operating income (EBITDA) at INR 3,938 million during the quarter. Growth in power demand has shown a strong recovery for the sector. With collections at 112% for the quarter, net distributable cash flow (NDCF) grew to 2,216 million, up 44% YoY.

The Board of the Investment Manager has approved an increase in Distribution Per Unit (DPU) by 3.3% to INR 3.10 for Q3 FY21 entirely payable as interest to unitholders in tandem with the increased NDCF on account of accretive acquisitions over the last few quarters. With this, IndiGrid has distributed INR 42.67 per unit to its investors over the last 15 quarters since its listing, a total return of over 70%. Total return is sum of all distributions since listing and change in price, till date.

The Board of the Investment Manager has also approved capital raise up to INR 15 billion by way of Rights Issue subject to regulatory approvals. This is in line with IndiGrid's strategy to raise timely capital to maintain leverage headroom and fund acquisitions. SEBI, in January 2020, issued guidelines for rights issuance by listed InvITs thereby enabling another source of equity funding for InvITs and allowing retail investors to participate in InvIT's growth potential.

Commenting on the quarterly financial results, Mr. Harsh Shah, Chief Executive Officer, said: "Value accretive acquisitions over the last several quarters have enabled increase in net distributable cash flows. In line with our strategy of providing a steady increase in DPU with visibility of sustaining the same, we have decided to increase the DPU by 3.33% to INR 3.10/unit. With a good quality asset and a robust pipeline of acquisitions, we are confident of delivering sustainable DPU and growing it over a period of time.

IndiGrid has acquired ~INR 85 billion assets since the last capital raise including ~INR 71 billion of Framework / ROFO projects from Sterlite Power. Considering a robust pipeline of assets, we plan to raise up to INR 15 billion via rights issue, subject to regulatory approvals. This would further strengthen our balance sheet and provide us sufficient headroom to capitalize on the opportunities ahead and deliver sustained growth over time."
