Axis Securities's research report on KSK Energy Vent

KSK’s Q3 adj. loss of Rs1.3bn was in line with our estimate.After 10 quarters, EBITDA of Rs 5.2 bn (up 3-fold YoY) now covers interest cost on improved utilization (PLF) mainly at Mahanadi plant. However, leverage continues to be cause for concern (6.1xas of Sep-15). Management has now taken a view to further increase the capacity of Mahanadi plant to 2.4 GW from 1.2 GW. While the company has already incurred Rs 50 bn towards common infrastructure, it would need additional Rs 50 bn for expansion.
