Motilal Oswal’s research report on Coal India
We expect global coal demand to remain strong in the near term as the world recovers from the pandemic and Europe shifts to renewables (in the long term) from Russian gas, increasing dependency on coal in near term.. We believe with continued heat wave in China, the hydro electricity production should reduce further, therefore, increasing reliance on thermal coal. We further believe Europe will continue to re-open as well as increase life of its remaining thermal power plants in a bid to shift away from Russian gas, and in the process will fuel demand for thermal coal.
We raise our FY23/24E Adj. EBITDA by 6%/2%, respectively, and consequently increase our TP to INR290 (from INR275) premised on 4x FY23E EV/EBITDA. Maintain BUY.
