Investment Rationale
CIL’s Q1FY22 offtake at 160.4mt was the best ever for Q1. Besides, the brokerage sees good potential for cash accretion aided by working capital unlocking as well as steady eauction sales volume/premium. CIL’s biggest achievement in Q1FY22 has been to rationalise production and reduce pit-head inventory to 60mt–lowest level in past six months. Lower inventory results in less grade slippage issues, thus improving FSA realisation. The brokerage is positive on the company’s improving cash generation prospects that would help it maintain dividend yield of 12-15% in FY22 despite an uptick in capex. It maintains ‘BUY/SO’ with TP of INR185 on 9x Q2FY23E EPS.
