Key highlights from Q3FY17 earning call

Operational performance was marked by improvement in technical availability and lower
auxiliary consumption, despite the drop in aggregate PLFs.

APLs power plants and its subsidiary registered improved plant availability of 94% versus
93% YoY. In the first 9 months, plant availability was 91% versus 90% in the corresponding
quarter of previous year.

Aggregate PLF was 69% for the quarter, which was lower both YoY and QoQ.

Better PLF at Tirora and Udupi was offset by lower PLF at Mundra and Kawai. Lower PLF at
Kawai was due to shortage of domestic coal, lower merchant prices and back down by

Plant-wise PLF for the quarter: Mundra 71%; Tirora 69%; Kawai 44% and Udupi 88%.

APL sold 14.9BUs versus 16.6BUs YoY. Number of units sold YTD17 stood at 43.9BUs versus
47.6BUs YoY.

Number of units sold during the quarter plant-wise: Mundra 6,603MUs, Tiroda 4,861MUs,
Kawai 1,233MUs and Udupi 2,196MUs.

Average sales realisation stood at INR3.58/kwh versus INR3.42/kwh YoY.

Composite merchant and medium merchant rates stood at INR3.41/kwh (versus 3.46/kwh
YoY) with merchant and medium term volume at 964MU (versus 1,383MUs YoY).

Weighted average fuel cost stood at INR2.47/kwh versus INR2.27/Kwh YoY.

YTD17 sales realisation stood at INR3.58/kwh and fuel cost was INR2.34/kwh.

CT recognised stood at INR4.80bn versus INR5.18bn YoY out of which Mundra was
INR3.44bn, Tiroda INR0.42bn and Kawai INR0.94bn.

Adani Power

On quarterly basis, higher interest cost was due to higher utilisation of working capital and
impact of mark to market.

Management mentioned that at Tiroda fuel cost was lower due to large stock of domestic
coal and therefore CT was lower.

Management mentioned the company has not recognised CT for 1 PPA (GUVNL from its
COD till March 31, 2015) out of the 3 PPAs (1 GUVNL and 1 Haryana PPA) in the case of
Adani Power Mundra Limited.

Proportion of domestic/imported coal was 60%/40% as compared to earlier 10%/90% and

this is all e-auction coal.

Coal quantity consumed at various plants: APML 3.14MTs (largely domestic), Kawai 0.66
(0.4MT domestic), Mundra 3.64MTs (all imported), Udupi 1MT (all imported) totaling to

Debt, as of December16 Long term INR420bn and working capital loan INR60bn (out of
which 80% is non-fund based).

Adani Power

Company Description
APL commercialised its first unit of 330 MW at Mundra, Gujarat, in 2009 and scaled up plans
to build Indias largest and one of the worlds top 5 single location thermal power plants
with a capacity of 4,620 MW. The company has also made inroads into power generation in
Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh with an ambitious vision of being a 20,000
MW company by 2020. It commissioned the first supercritical 660 MW unit in the country
and also the worlds first supercritical technology project to have received clean
development mechanism (CDM) project certification from United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Investment Theme
The company has operational capacity of ~7.2 GW (at Mundra, Gujarat and Tiroda,
Maharashtra) and another 1.9 GW to be commissioned by FY14. APL envisages achieving
total commercial capacity of 20 GW by FY20. The company has a good blend of projects in
terms of diverse locations, imported and domestic coal, long-term PPAs and merchant sales.
Out of the expected 9.24 GW capacity by FY14, APL plans to sell ~80% (7.14 GW) under
long-term PPAs and the balance in merchant market which imparts earnings visibility. APLs
entire capacity (9.24 GW) is coal based with a blend of imported (AEL) and domestic (CIL)
coal procured through linkages. Though linkages are in place (except 2.6 GW Tiroda
ext/Kawai where linkage is applied for) we anticipate risk to domestic coal supply because of
the likely production shortage from CIL in the medium term. The Bunyu mines (reserves of
140 MT) owned by AEL can scale up to ~10 MTPA, which will be sufficient to fuel only ~2.5
GW capacity, but supplies from other overseas mines acquired by AEL are expected only
post FY15. Hence during FY13-15 coal for additional capacities will have to be procured on
spot basis until domestic supply improves, impacting earnings.

Key Risks
CIL honouring its coal contracts
The company expects domestic linkages from CIL to meet coal requirements for much of the
9,240 MW capacity. Our hypothesis is that CIL will not be able to honour its existing
contracts in totality (we have factored in 80% of CILs commitment for Mundra IV i.e. 3x660
and Tiroda I i.e. 3x660 to be met based on draft revised FSAs circulated by CIL) due to
current problems in scaling up and logistics (rake availability). CIL honouring its existing
contracts (pooling, imported, etc) at the current price level is a risk to our call.

Commissioning of plants ahead of CEA dates

We have assumed the timeline of commissioning of power units based on the recent status
updated by the CEA. However, faster execution and commissioning of plants ahead of the
expected schedule (gives them time to generated power and sell on merchant basis) is a risk
to our assumptions.
