Q3 EBITDA was in line with the corresponding prior quarter at Rs. 2,375 crore, reflecting improved operational efficiencies, marginally higher metal prices and premiums and improved sales realization due to INR depreciation, which were partially offset by lower by-product realizations. Q3 FY2013 EBITDA was lower compared to Q2 FY2013, impacted by lower power sales and lower by-product credits.
Improved operational performance and lower foreign exchange losses at Vedanta Aluminium Limited decreased Sterlite's share of loss of associate by 14% during Q3 compared with the corresponding prior quarter.
Depreciation cost during Q3 was higher compared with the corresponding prior quarter on account of capitalization of new plants at Zinc India and Sterlite Energy Limited.
Interest cost in Q3 FY2013 was higher as compared to the corresponding prior quarter and Q2 FY2013 due to capitalisation of new plants and increased borrowings.
Attributable PAT and Basic EPS were Rs. 1,191 crore and Rs. 3.5 per share for Q3, up 30% and were Rs. 4,136 crore and Rs. 12.3 per share for the nine months period, up 16%.
