Prabhudas Lilladher's research report on Coal India
Coal India (COAL) reported Q4FY19 earnings marginally above our estimates on earnings on the back of better than expected FSA realisations. We note that company changed accounting for provisions related to quality variance by adjusting from revenue against earlier practice of providing as cost. Accordingly, revenues for FY19 were revised lower by Rs5bn to account for grade slippage. Hence, we keep our estimates unchanged for FY20e and FY21e as volatile grade and lower E-auction volumes would offset higher pre-grade adjustment realisations.
Given the weak outlook on volumes and deteriorating B/S (resulting in dividend cuts), we reiterate Hold with TP of Rs265, P/E of 9.8x FY21E.
