Performance highlights Q1 FY13: Consolidated
- On the consolidated basis, Tata Power’s Q1 FY13 Revenues increased
25 percent to Rs7,253.89 crore as compared to Rs5,824.51 crore in corresponding
quarter last year
- PAT stood at Rs145.93 crore as compared to Rs628.75 crore in Q4 FY12
and Rs430.44 crore in Q1 FY12. This is mainly due to lower profit in coal companies owing to lower price realisation and higher cost of production,
higher interest and depreciation cost due to commissioning of Mundra and Maithon
units and reversal of revenues due to change in effective date of MYT regulations
- On consolidated segment-wise performance for the quarter, revenues from power business has increased by 30 percent at Rs4,824.01 crore as compared to Rs3,720.30 crore in the corresponding quarter last year. Revenue from coal business
was up by 14 percent at Rs2,265.04 crore as compared to Rs1,990.69 crore in the
corresponding period last year. PBIT from power business was at Rs578.24
crore as against Rs627 crore in the previous quarter last year, a reduction
of Rs155 crore, mainly due to shifting of MYT regime to 2012-13 onwards in Mumbai.
PBIT from coal business stood at Rs257.61 crore as compared to Rs750.07
crore reported in the corresponding quarter last year. Profits were lower
in coal companies due to lower price realisation and higher cost of production.
Last year’s PBIT was after capitalisation of Rs210.65 crore of deferred
stripping costs. From January 1, 2012, no capitalisation of deferred stripping
cost is being done.

Commenting on the company’s performance, Anil Sardana, managing director,
Tata Power, said, “During first quarter of FY13, the company reported revenue
growth of about 20 percent and profit growth of about 10 percent which is highly satisfying.
All our projects and subsidiaries by and large have performed well. Tata Power’s
generation capacity crossed 6000MW with commissioning of 800MW Unit 2 of the
Mundra UMPP, reinforcing our position as the largest integrated power company
in India. The company crossed 11,000MWh of generation units at Mithapur solar
plant, which is a significant milestone that demonstrates efficiency and state-of-the-art technology used at the plant. Our coal companies posted lower realisation
due to global economic slowdown and falling coal prices."
"By signing the coal supply agreement with PT Antang Gunung Meratus, we have
taken proactive steps to ensure imported coal supply for our upcoming power
projects to be developed for next five years,”he added.
During the quarter under review, the company continued its robust operations.
Sales volume for the quarter stood at 4227MUs as compared to 3932MUs in Q1
FY12. The overall generation was 4,259MUs, up 10 percent as compared to 3,889MUs reported
in corresponding quarter last year. Trombay Thermal Power Station generated
2,542MUs, as compared to 2,445MUs in the corresponding quarter last year. Hydro power stations generated 389MUs, as compared to 362MUs. Jojobera Thermal Power
Station generated 814MUs, as compared to 663MUs and Haldia reported generation
of 227MUs as compared to 219MUs in the corresponding quarter last year. Industrial
Energy Limited (IEL) reported generation of 457MUs as compared to 399MUs.

corresponding quarter last year. Solar plant recorded generation of 1MU, as
compared to 1MU in Q1 FY12.
Business highlights: Key subsidiaries
- Coastal Gujarat Power (CGPL): CGPL, an SPV formed
for setting up and operating the 4,000MW Mundra UMPP announced synchronisation
of its 800MW sized Unit 2 on July 19, 2012 and commercial operations on July 30, 2012. Unit 1 is in operation. Work on Units 3, 4 and 5 of the project
is on track and progressing well. Blending of 70 percent has been achieved successfully
through eco-coal that has low sulphur and ash content. CGPL posted revenues
of Rs285.07 crore in Q1 FY13. PAT stood at Rs164.78 crore and is mainly
due to first unit being operational. The unexpected rise in coal price has
not only affected the Mundra project, but all imported coal based projects.
Senior leaders from the industry met the Prime Minister and requested the PMO to
resolve this issue. Further, Tata Power had contracted coal from Indonesia
on terms, which were mirror of bid tariff for coal for CGPL. However, since
the Indonesian government has changed export norms for coal from their country,
Tata Power can’t get imported coal based on contracted terms. CGPL has
also filed a petition with CERC for revision of tariff.

Tata Power and Damodar Valley Corporation (DVC) commissioned second Unit of

distribution subsidiary and joint venture with the Delhi government, posted revenues
