Sharekhan's research report on NTPC

The recent sharp 17% fall in NTPC’s stock price from its 52-week high is unwarranted given risk-averse earnings model and a healthy dividend yield of 5%. Also, NTPC’s market capitalisation ignores long-term value creation from large renewable energy (RE) expansion plans. We maintain a Buy on NTPC with an unchanged PT of Rs. 170; FY24E P/BV attractive at 0.9x. NTPC’s standalone regulated equity base would clock a 12% CAGR over FY22-24E led by robust commercialization plan of 5GW/6GW in FY23E/FY24E. This coupled with sustained high plant load factor (PLF) for thermal assets and better coal availability (captive coal production grew 27% y-o-y to 14 mt in FY22) to drive 16% CAGR in standalone PAT over FY22-24E along with decent RoE of ~14%. Strong operating cash flows (up 31% y-o-y to Rs. . 35,388 crore in FY22) and low cost debt (high credit rating) to help drive transition towards RE capacities (60GW target by FY32 or 46% of capacity versus 3% currently), which would create significant value and drive re-rating besides addressing ESG concerns for NTPC.


Potential monetisation of NTPC Green Energy Limited through induction of strategic investor and an IPO at a later stage could unlock value from RE business.
