Jaiprakash Associates shares fall 2.6%
Jaiprakash reported late on Monday July-September net profit slumped 48.6 percent from a year ago, disappointing investors.
Morgan Stanley says Jaiprakash's cement operations proved sturdy, but attributes the profit decline to weakness in the construction and real estate divisions.
Debt remains a key concern, Morgan Stanley adds, noting net debt to equity has increased.
We believe that the market will remain sanguine on the issue for a while, as the company tries to sell assets to reduce leverage, the investment bank says in a note dated Nov. 14.
