Analysts expect steel EBITDA per tonne to increase 4 percent QoQ aided by higher realisations. Impact of higher coking coal costs will be low for JSPL, they say.

Key triggers to watch out for would be deleveraging plan, freeing up of iron ore inventory at Sarda mines, and pending outcome of case pertaining to coal blocks that were won in an auction & then cancelled.
