Tata Power profit rises 90% YoY in Q1 FY23

This is the company’s 11th straight profit after tax YoY quarterly growth.

Tata Power recorded a 90% year-on-year (YoY) increase in profit to INR8.8b in the first quarter of the financial year (FY) 2023, the 11th consecutive quarterly profit growth posted by the company.

In a statement, Tata Power said the profit growth was mainly due to the improved performance across all its businesses, mainly profit from coal companies. Its revenue also rose 48% YoY to around INR147.8b. 

“We have started the new fiscal year on a solid note with all of our business clusters - Generation, Transmission, Distribution, including Odisha, and Renewables - performing very well. This is aptly reflected in our 11th consecutive quarter of PAT (profit after tax) growth,” said Tata Power CEO and Managing Director Praveer Sinha.

“We have a robust growth trajectory with stable long-term cost structures and competitiveness across businesses,” he added.

Tata Power said it has commissioned 600 megawatts (MW) of large-scale engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) projects. It has a strong solar EPC order book reaching around INR146.6b, and winning 1.7 gigawatts projects during the quarter.
