     Consolidated adjusted PAT grew 4% YoY to INR10.2b, below our estimate of INR11b. Reported consolidated
      PAT was INR9.96b, which included an exceptional gain of INR259m and forex loss of INR500m. JSPL has not
      adopted the new guidelines for amortization of forex loss over a longer period.
     Jindal Power's revenue and PAT for the quarter were higher than we had estimated - at INR8b and INR4.8b,
      respectively. Power generation was 2,255mkwh at PLF of 102%. Power rate is estimated at INR3.94/kwh.
     Two captive units of 135MW have been commissioned at Dongamahua, Chhattisgarh in January 2012. Also,
      these units have received open access permissions to sell power at merchant rates. Merchant tariffs are
      likely to be >INR4/kwh, while the cost is ~INR2.2/kwh. The improved margins and higher volumes are likely
      to drive earnings.
     Power rates on surplus power sales to Odisha state from the 270MW CPP have been revised upwards by
      INR0.3/kwh to INR3.05/kwh.
     Steel production during the quarter was a record 757k tons although sales were down 1% QoQ to 591k tons.
      Steel inventories built as of December 2011 have since been liquidated at higher realizations. We expect
      steel sales volumes to be higher and margins to be superior in 4QFY12.
     Earnings growth is likely to moderate post 4QFY12 due to delays in the Angul steel and coal mine projects. We
      are cutting our EPS estimate for FY13 by 9% to INR49.9. Earnings are likely to grow 12.6% in FY13. The stock
      trades at 10.4x FY13E EPS. Maintain Buy.

                                                                                    Jindal Steel & Power

                  Steel sales volumes are expected to be stronger and margins superior in
                   2 units of 135MW captive power capacity at Dongamahua, Chhattisgarh have been
                    commissioned in January 2012. Also, these units have received open access
                    permissions to sell power at merchant rates. Merchant tariffs are expected to be
                    >INR4/kwh, while the costs is ~INR2.2/kwh. The improved margins and higher
                    volumes are likely to drive earnings.
                   Power rates on surplus power sales to Odisha state from 270MW CPP have been
                    revised upwards by Paise30/kwh to INR3.05/kwh.
                   Steel production during the quarter was record 757kt although sales were down
                    1% QoQ to 591kt. Steel inventories built as of Dec-11 has since been liquidated at
                    higher realizations. Steel sales volumes are expected to be stronger and margins
                    superior in 4QFY12.

                  Cutting FY13 earnings 9% due to delay in Angul project; Earnings growth is
                   JSPL achieved record steel production of 757kt in 3QFY12. Steel production is
                    unlikely to grow further in FY13 because Raigarh plant has achieved peak
                    production and Angul steel project is further delayed to December 2012. We are
                    cutting FY13 steel and DRI production volumes by 650kt and 180kt respectively to
                    factor the delays in Angul steel project.
                   Pellet plant has been producing around 800-900kt on quarterly basis for last 4
                    quarter and is unable to achieve 4.5mtpa run-rate. Therefore, we are cutting Pellet
                    production by 400kt to 4m tons for FY13.
                   Jindal power's average power rate realization has been revised upwards from
                    INR3.7/kwh to INR4/kwh to factor improvement in merchant power rates for short
                    term contracts. For Captive power plants at Angul, rate for surplus power sale to
                    Odisha has been increased by 30paise to INR3.05/kwh. For Raigarh CPP surplus
                    power sales, the rates are revised from INR2.37/kwh to INR3.7/kwh due to open
                    access to merchant power market.
                   As a result, FY13 EPS is cut 9% to INR49.9. Although 4QFY12 earnings will be
                    substantially higher QoQ due to liquidation of steel inventory and revision of
                    power rates, earning growth will moderate thereafter due to delay in Angul steel
                    and coal mine projects.

                  Concall highlights
                  Standalone: Increase in inventory due to lackluster steel demand; higher
                  quantity of HBI was imported from Shadeed Oman
                     Indian steel business imported HBI from Shadeed (Oman) to produce steel. As a
                      result, steel production increased 20% QoQ to 756kt and achieved run rate of
                      3mtpa first time.
                     Steel sales volumes declined 1% QoQ to 591kt due to lacklustre demand. Steel
                      inventories increased by 100kt QoQ to ~300kt. Total inventories stood at INR15b
                      at end of 3QFY12 Vs INR10b in 2QFY12 due to sluggish demand and logistical issues.
                     Company sold 150kt of iron ore fines in this quarter as well.
                     Forex loss of INR 530m accounted in other expenditure. Total outstanding ECB are
                      USD400m. Debt in standalone entity stood at INR150b while consolidated debt
                      stood at INR170b at end of 3QFY12.
                     Company plans total Capex of INR100b till FY13 including INR40b for Tamnar II
                     Fixed assets stood at INR100b while CWIP stood at INR100b. Apparently, the Capex
                      during 3Q was approx. INR5.4b.

                  Jindal Power
                     Power generation was 2,255M Kwh at PLF of 102%. Merchant realization stood at
                      INR4.06/kwh while average realization was ~INR3.97/kwh

                  Green field Projects: Angul steel and coal mine project delayed 3 months;
                  plans to commission 2x600MW at Tamnar-II by March 2014
                   Angul steel project: 2mtpa gas based Sponge iron is expected to get commissioned
                    by December 2012 i.e. a delay of 3 months. Import component of DRI equipment
                    is yet to arrive. We expect steel production to start in a meaningful way only in
                    FY14 now.
                   Angul Coal mines: Production is now expected to start operations by July 2012 i.e.
                    a delay of 3 months.
                   Tamnar II: Project work re-started two months ago and company now expects
                    2x600MW to get operational by March 2014 and remaining 2 units with a lag of 4
                    months each. This is a delay of 1 year from the original schedule. JPL has already
                    received coal linkage for 2x600MW and applied for linkage for the rest 2 units.
                    Importing coal from international subsidiaries remains the fallback option.
                   Goda and Dumka: JPL plans to order BTG in next 3-4 months, as process of land
                    acquisition and environment clearance is still going on.

                  Captive power Plants - Units at Raigarh stabilized and running at 90% PLF;
                  expect to commission balance 4 units by March 2012
                     JSPL has commissioned all 4 units (of 135MW each) of captive power plants at
                      Raigarh and 2 (out 6) units at Angul. Three units (2 at Raigarh and 1 at Angul) have
                      been commissioned in the month of January and are gradually ramping up. Old 3
                      units are stabilised and running at 90% PLF and expected to contribute significantly
                      in 4QFY12.

                   Total loss from these units amount to ~INR800m in 9MFY12. Company expects to
                    breakeven in another 6 months. Fuel cost at 1,350MW project is estimated to be
                    ~INR1.8/Kwh. The fuel cost may fall to INR1.25-1.4/kwh after start of Angul coal
                   Company is targeting to commission rest 4 units of 135MW each by March 2012 (in
                    order to receive tax benefits). However profitability will improve only when Angul
                    captive coal mines start production; which is getting delayed. Company now
                    expects mine to start operation in another 6 months.
                   Company has spent ~INR60b for this 1350MW CPP and capitalised ~INR48b.

                  Overseas operations: expect USD40m annual PAT for Shadeed; Indonesia
                  coal mine delayed by 12 months
                     Oman: USD40m PAT is expected for the year, plant is running at 85% utilization. At
                      present, company is partly exporting HBI to Indian operations for steel production.
                     Bolivia: Management expects more clarity on the Bolivian operation only in the
                      next quarter. There are certain differences with the government and at present
                      discussions are going on.
                     South Africa: Expect 1m tons of coal production in FY13. The GCV of the coal is 6300
                     No clarity on exact timeline for Zimbabwe and Mozambique coal mine operations.
                     Indonesia: Commencing of production at Indonesian mine is pushed to 4QFY13
                      against earlier plan of March 2012.
