Consolidated EBITDA for the quarter was at Rs 12251 crore (up 153% YoY and 35% QoQ), significantly higher than our estimate of Rs 8436 crore. Ensuing consolidated PAT for the quarter was at Rs 8834 crore, up 178% YoY and 32% QoQ, significantly higher than our estimate of Rs 6013 crore.
For Q1FY23, Coal India's E-auction realisation for the quarter was at Rs4340/tonne, up 177% YoY and 78% QoQ (significantly higher than our estimate of Rs 2800/tonne). Aided by better than expected E-auction realisations, EBITDA margin and EBITDA/tonne came in notably higher than our estimate. Consolidated EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 34.9% compared to 19.2% in Q1FY22 and 27.8% in Q4FY22 (our estimate of 26.0%). EBITDA/tonne for the quarter was at Rs 690/tonne compared to Rs 302/tonne in Q1FY22 and Rs 504/tonne in Q4FY22 (our estimate of Rs 475/tonne). Going forward, as global coal prices are still hovering at healthy levels, CIL's e-auction realisation are expected to remain firm, going forward also, which augurs well for CIL's consolidated entity.
