Healthy volumes/realizations: Volumes increased 20% YoY to 3.29mt in 4QFY19, driven by strong growth in the eastern region. Moreover, cement realizations increased 1.5% YoY to INR4,640/ton due to higher prices in south. Consequently, revenue grew 22% YoY to INR15.29b (our estimate: INR13.8b) in the quarter. Profitability restricted by higher cost: Blended EBITDA/t was down 1% YoY to INR979, with cost/t increasing 2% YoY to INR3,670. However, EBITDA grew 20% YoY to INR3.2b (in-line) due to volume gains.
