Jindal Steel & Power (JSPL) is likely to post loss of Rs 400 crore during July-September quarter against profit of Rs 442 crore in year-ago period, according to analysts polled by CNBC-TV18. It will announce earnings on November 14.


Lower operating profit (EBITDA), higher depreciation and interest charges may lead to a loss during the quarter.

Analysts feel steel business revenue may be aided by steep increase in pellet volumes but operating profit may be under pressure due to weak realisations year-on-year.


JSP’s power EBITDA may improve sequentially in Q2FY16 from higher generation at Tamnar I and II on better coal availability.


Raw material cost may decline due to lower iron ore/coking coal costs.


Operating profit is likely to drop 39 percent year-on-year to Rs 997 crore and margin may contract 1000 basis points to 22 percent in quarter gone by.


According to analysts, earnings is not a big trigger for the stock. Important trigger is outcome of court case pertaining to coal blocks that were won in the auction & then cancelled. Currently JSPL has not secured itself for both power and steel operations.
