Tata Power (TPWR) highlighted its focus on addressing legacy issues with
regard to: 1) deleveraging and 2) the self-sustenance of Mundra.
Over the past few months, the co.’s deleveraging process has been
accelerated with the: 1) sale of Cennergi, 2) sale of shipping cos, and 3)
preferential issue to Tata Sons.
The co. plans to continue with its asset monetization plans by exiting non-core
assets and InvIT for renewables. The co. expects the InvIT transaction to be
completed this year. TPWR plans to reduce net debt to INR250b by the end of
FY21 and sustain it at these levels.
The co. plans to simplify its holding structure and generate synergies from the
merger of CGPL, Tata Power Solar, and Aftaab with TPWR. The process for the
same requires the NCLT’s approval (which could take 4–12 months).
With regard to CGPL, the co. plans to reduce its debt by INR40b using
preference and divestment-related proceeds, in turn generating interest cost
savings of INR3.8b. In terms of the PPA amendment for CGPL, the benefit of
compensatory tariff at current prices stands at INR2.5b.
