Prabhudas Lilladher’s research report on Ambuja Cement
Ambuja Cement (ACEM) delivered strong beat on both our and consensus estimates (CE) for the sixth consecutive quarter. EBITDA grew 61% YoY (down mere 2% QoQ despite 11% fall in volumes) at Rs9.6bn with a beat of 8%/23% on our/CE. Lower than expected costs drove the beat. Operations show massive turnaround over last one year, way above our expectation. We credit entire of the revival to the new leadership.
