Note: All numbers are as per Ind AS. Previous period figures have been regrouped / rearranged wherever necessary to conform to current period presentation.

Revenues

Revenue in Q3 was up 23% q-o-q, driven by higher volumes from Zinc India in accordance with the mine plans, increased volumes at Iron Ore on account of the monsoon season in Q2, ramp-up at the Aluminium and Power businesses, and higher metal and oil prices. This was partially offset by lower volumes from Oil & Gas due to a planned shutdown during the quarter, and the Skorpion mine at Zinc International.

Revenues in Q3 were up 31% y-o-y driven by higher volumes at Iron Ore due to recommencement of operations, ramp-up of volumes at the Aluminium and Power businesses and higher volumes at Copper India and Zinc India. This was partially offset by lower volumes from Oil & Gas, and Zinc International due to closure of the Lisheen mine, in Q3 FY2016.

EBITDA and EBITDA Margins

EBITDA at Rs. 6,002 crore was 29% higher q-o-q, due to higher metal and oil prices in addition to higher volumes from Zinc India, Iron Ore, Aluminium and Power and decline in discount to Brent at Oil & Gas. This was partly offset by lower metal premiums and lower volumes at Zinc International and at Oil & Gas due to a planned shutdown.

EBITDA was up by 83% on a y-o-y basis on account of higher commodity prices and increased volumes at Iron Ore due to recommencement of operations, ramp up of volumes and cost efficiencies at the Aluminium and Power business and decline in discount to Brent at Oil & Gas. This was partly offset by lower volume at Oil & Gas, and a one-time benefit of Rs. 216 crore recognized in Q3 FY 2016 at Copper India and Zinc India regarding an export incentive scheme.

EBITDA margin1 was robust at 39% in the current quarter, marginally higher q-o-q on the back of continued strong operational performance.

Depreciation

Depreciation at Rs.1,520 crore, was lower by Rs. 9 crore q-o-q mainly on account of lower depreciation charge at Oil & Gas due to lower entitlement interest volume, partially offset by capitalization of new capacities at the Aluminium and Power businesses.

Depreciation was lower by Rs. 200 crore y-o-y. This was mainly on account of lower depreciation charge at Oil & Gas due to lower entitlement interest volume in the current quarter and an increase in proved and developed reserves in Q4 FY2016; in addition to the closure of the Lisheen mine in Q3 FY2016. These were partially offset by capitalization of new capacities at the Aluminium and Power businesses.

Finance Cost and Other Income

Finance cost during the quarter was Rs. 1,508 crore, higher by Rs. 58 crore q-o-q due to capitalization of new capacities and an increase in borrowings at the Aluminium and Power business, partially offset by benefits of lower interest rates.

Finance cost was higher by Rs. 111 crore y-o-y. The increase was due to capitalization and increase in borrowings at the Aluminium and Power businesses, partially offset by the accounting treatment of interest at Jharsuguda-II smelter which was earlier completely expensed when the project start-up was temporarily on hold and is now being capitalized as and when aluminium capacities are ramped up.

Other income at Rs. 1,033 crore was lower by Rs. 219 crore sequentially primarily due to lower mark-to-market gains on investments in the current quarter.

Other income remained relatively flat on a y-o-y basis.

Non-Operational Forex Loss/Gain

During the quarter, rupee depreciated by c.1.9%, leading to a forex loss of Rs.117 crore, primarily on restatement of MAT assets at Oil & Gas business.

Taxes

Tax expense was at Rs. 897 crore during the quarter, resulting in tax rate of 23% (excluding dividend distribution tax or DDT of Rs. 787 crore, the tax rate was 20%). The tax rate in Q2 FY2017 was also at 23%, and 20% excluding DDT. The effective tax rate increased at the Oil & Gas business, as the current tax expense was higher than estimated due to increase in oil prices and lower discount to Brent, offset by reduction of effective tax rate at Zinc India.

Tax rate for FY2017 is expected to be ~20% (excluding DDT).

Attributable Profit After Tax and Earnings Per Share (EPS)

Attributable Profit After Tax (PAT) for the quarter was Rs. 1,866 crore and EPS for the quarter was at Rs. 6.29 per share. Minority interest was at 37%.

Ind AS implementation

Company has adopted Ind AS for preparation of accounts from 1st April 2016. Comparative periods have been restated under Ind AS as per the guidelines (these are not audited). The opening balance sheet as at 1st April 2015 and the sub-periods would get finalized along with annual financial statements for FY 2017.

Balance Sheet

The Company is focused on strengthening its balance sheet by maximizing free cash flow, refinancing and terming out maturing debt, and simplifying the group structure. Our financial position remains strong with cash and liquid investments of Rs. 53,452 crore. The

Company follows a Board approved investment policy and invests in high quality debt instruments with the mutual funds, bonds and fixed deposits with banks. The portfolio is rated by CRISIL which has assigned a rating of "Very Good" (meaning Highest Safety) to our portfolio. Further, the Company has undrawn committed facilities of $0.5 bn as on December 31, 2016.

During the quarter, gross debt reduced by Rs. 1,828 crore to Rs. 64,966 crore. Net debt reduced by Rs. 447 crore to Rs. 11,514 crore on account of positive free cash flow.

Out of the total debt of Rs. 64,966 crore, the INR/USD split is approximately 82%/ 18%. Further, the gross debt comprises of long term loans of Rs. 62,614 crore and short term loans of Rs. 2,352 crore.
