Posting Petronet LNG’s second-quarter results, brokerage research analysts Prabhudas Lilladher said, “We revise our FY 2023/24E estimates by ~0.5%, as we incorporate BS. H1. PLNG reported inline results with EBIDTA and PAT of Rs 11.7 billion (+10%Q/Q; PLe 11.0 billion) and Rs 7.4 billion (+6%Q/Q, PLe Rs7, 3 billion), as higher margins offset lower-than-expected volumes. The recent drop in spot LNG prices to $24/mmbtu from $46/mmbtu in Q1 is a good sign, as spot volumes for H1FY23 have dropped to 3tbtu compared to 15tbtu in H1FY22. In addition, the company’s long-term contracts are best suited in an uncertain global economy. We believe PLNG is a game to play against India’s growing LNG imports, although growing domestic gas production is supported by 1) high earnings visibility and 2 ) limited competition for its long-term reach in the LNG business. Repeat ‘BUY’ with a DCF-based PT of Rs325 (Rs307), as we update our BS H1FY23.”
