NTPC: Generation on track
Oct 31, 2012

NTPC declared the results for the second quarter and first half of financial year 2012-2013 (1HFY13). The company has reported 8% YoY growth in net sales and 25% YoY growth in profits for the first half. Here is our analysis of the results.

Performance summary
  • Net sales grow by 8% YoY in 1QFY13 on the back of a marginal 3.5% YoY growth in NTPC's generation volume.
  • Operating margins improved slightly from 22.5% in 1HFY12 to 25.5% in 1HFY13, due to lower fuel (coal) costs (as percentage of sales) and improvement in realization per unit.
  • Growth in other income was due to rise in interest on fixed deposits and higher dividend from subsidiaries.
  • The company had an installed capacity of 39,174 MW at the end of September 2012 and is targeting capacity addition of 14,000 MW during the 12th plan period.
