Torrent Power announces Q3 FY 2023-24 financial performance with key insights


Torrent Power Limited, a key player in India’s power sector, disclosed its financial outcomes for the quarter ending December 31, 2023. Despite a reduction in Earnings Before Interest, Depreciation, and Tax (EBIDTA) primarily due to a decrease in net gain from the trading of LNG and merchant power sales by ₹478 crores compared to the same quarter the previous year, the company’s adjusted EBIDTA and Profit After Tax (PAT) showcased an encouraging uptick.

The adjusted EBIDTA and PAT for Q3 FY 2023-24 saw an increase of ₹49 crores and ₹31 crores, respectively, on a year-over-year basis. This improvement is attributed to several key factors, including enhanced contributions from licensed distribution businesses and the renewable segment, thanks to capacity additions and higher wind Power Load Factor (PLF). Moreover, a reduction in tax expenses and a counterbalance by higher depreciation expense also played a significant role.
