While Jaypee Power has not been embroiled in any controversies or been criticised publicly, the Jaypee Group has been surrounded by them, affecting even JP Power.

COVID-19 Impact

In 2019, the company had disclosed a net loss of Rs. 1,816.05 crore, which narrowed to Rs 8.61 crore in the following year. The consolidated income of the company also rose from Rs. Rs 880.37 crore in 2019 to Rs 993.98 crore in the quarter ended December 2020.Despite this, the management believes that there hasn’t been a severe impact of Covid 19 on the company except a slight fall in demand and the consequential impact on supply.

Did You Know!

The company sold some of their hydropower plants to JSW Energy so as to reduce their incurred debt burden. As of today, they have the operational capacity of only 400 MW hydropower and 1,800 MW thermal power. Also, thermal power plants are being constructed to add 2,000 MW to their portfolio but the proceeds from the sale of the hydropower plants and the renewed effort for thermal power will first go to settle the debt incurred by the parent company.

Initial Public Offering

The IPO of the company was released on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) in March, 2005, as well as listed on BSE, where the base JP share price was set at Rs. 32 per share. The face value per JP stock price was Rs. 10. The issue size of shares of Rs. 10 was 18,00,00,000 shares aggregating to Rs. 576 crore and these were all offered for sale.

Equity Shares

Jaypee Power is an analysts favourite recently due to their belief that the stock is currently massively under-performing. The loss expected in the fourth quarter is higher than actual loss, standing at only Rs. 141.54 crore, reducing from the Rs. 171.98 crore loss from last year. The company has improved on the operational level and the income doubled from Rs. 459.03 crore to Rs. 987.51 crore in the fourth quarter.The entire power sector is not doing well at the moment, but with the sectoral reforms that the central government is initiating, there is a high scope of improvement. The industrial demand is also on a rise and interest rates are falling, which all project positively on the JP share price, especially as its the cheapest stock in the market from this sector. However, the company is also facing many downsides like though the 2 thermal plants in Madhya Pradesh have been commercialised, the plants continued to report losses. There has been a significant increase in fuel prices and coal has been deallocated, the pressure of performance is high.
