The company reported a net profit of Rs 715.05 crore for the January-March quarter of 2014-15.

The total income increased from Rs 25433.35 crore to Rs 19791.44 crore for the latest fiscal.

The figures are not fully comparable pursuant to the stake sale in Adani Transmission (India) by the company in the previous year, the merger of Solar Power Undertaking of Adani Enterprises from April 1, 2015 and the acquisition of 100 per cent stake of UPCL from April 20, 2015.

The company said in a press statement that the interest cost during the quarter increased to Rs 1,547 crore compared to Rs 1,325 crore during March quarter of 2014-15, mainly due to fair valuation of derivatives taken for interest rate swaps.

It also expects that implementation of the APTEL order will improve the cashflow and gearing of the company.

The APTEL, in its order on April 7, 2016, decided that the promulgation of Indonesian regulations as also the non-availability/short supply of domestic coal constitute a force majeure event under the PPAs, and directed the CERC to assess the extent of impact of such events on the project, and give relief as may be available under the respective PPAs.

“Mundra plants generation of 33.1 billion units during the year, is the highest by any thermal power plant in the country which is the testimony of our achievement,” Adani Power Chief Executive Officer Vneet Jaain said in statement.
