Tata Power posted consolidated net loss of Rs 114.7 crore in first quarter (April-June) as against profit of Rs 145.9 crore in a year ago period, dented by higher interest payment and forex loss, but its standalone performance was quite good.

Consolidated net revenue increased higher-than-expected 29 percent on yearly basis to Rs 9,292 crore during June quarter while earnings before interest, tax, depreciation & amortisation (EBITDA) margin jumped 290 bps year-on-year to 21.7 percent as against analysts' forecast of 21.2 percent.

Finance costs (interest payment) ballooned 64.3 percent year-on-year to Rs 902 crore in first quarter. Finance cost includes Rs 45 crore being provision for interest on amounts which have not been deposited with the statutory authorities on account of disputes which are pending.
