Nirmal Bang Report

We have changed our earnings model and valuations for Indraprastha Gas Ltd. and Mahanagar Gas Ltd. based on:

1) 12% post-tax return on capital employed versus 14% previously for fixing network tariff for open access volumes, which we expect to touch 10%/15%20% over FY23E/24E/25E.

This calibrated increase is more realistic given the time required for the Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board to notify the geographical areas as common/contract carrier and third parties to build their distribution network, especially for compressed natural gas.

2. Discounted cash flow-based valuation using only open access/fixed tariff model versus our previous blended value (weighted average of fixed tariff and unregulated model with 20%/80% weightage).

Hence, we have revised our valuations.
