Net sales to decrease QoQ due to lower volumes and lower realizations:
Refined zinc and lead sales volumes are likely to decline 7% QoQ to 210k tonnes
Though Silver volumes are likely to grow 9% QoQ to 81tonnes
Realizations: Lower Realizations but will be partially offset by INR depreciation:
Zinc prices have declined 5% q-o-q and 14% y-o-y to USD1,929/tonne
Lead prices have declined 6% q-o-q and 22% y-o-y to USD1,976/tonne
Silver too declined during the quarter (-10%) to US$29.5/ oz
Lower volume will impact the EBITDA margins:
Subdued performance for Q1FY13 primarily due to mine development work which was taken up during the quarter adversely affecting production
On QoQ basis, production of lead metal and silver was subdued due to lower production at RA mine
Expect refined zinc and lead volumes to decline due to deterioration of ore grade at Rampura Gucha mine
Drop in zinc metal production for the quarter due to grade deterioration at Rampura Agucha (RA) mine, Rajasthan and suspension of its Vizag smelter, AP
But on a YoY increase in lead metal and refined silver production, on the back of commissioning of a new lead smelter and ramp-up at Sindesar Khurd (SK) mine, Rajasthan
PAT will be aided by higher interest income and lower tax rate
PAT drop is seen much smaller than EBITDA fall due to lower tax rate from 24% in 4QFY12 to roughly 16% in 1QFY13
