Hindalco Q1 Overview – Increased LME Costs To Drive Earnings Progress: Motilal Oswal


BQ Blue’s dedicated research section gathers high quality and detailed equity and economic research reports from India’s leading brokerage houses, asset managers and research agencies. These reports provide BloombergQuint subscribers with an opportunity to expand their understanding of companies, sectors, and the economy.

Hindalco Industries Ltd.’s Q1 FY22 result for India business was strong as expected, with Ebitda up 29% versus QoQ to Rs 24.3bn due to higher prices on the London Metal Exchange.

Consolidated net debt increased Rs 45 billion (QoQ) to Rs 519 billion and net debt / Ebitda decreased 2.36 times (up from a high of four times after the Aleris acquisition).

We stick to our estimates and reiterate Hindalco as our best choice for non-ferrous metals.

Despite rising costs, we estimate that the Indian Ebitda / ton in FY22E at 959 USD / ton is the highest ever in the last 10 years.

We expect an average annual growth rate of 43% of earnings per share for FY21-23E, led by a stronger LME price and lower interest costs from deleveraging.
