Adani Transmission Ltd (ATL), the largest private transmission company in India and part of the globally diversified Adani Group, on Friday announced its financial and operational performance for the quarter ended September 30, 2021.
The company recorded a double-digit growth in consolidated revenue on account of strong growth in both transmission and distribution segments.
Strong revenue and EBITDA trends translating into PAT increase of 34.9 per cent YoY and 26.8 per cent YoY on quarterly and semi-annual basis, the company said.
The growth in transmission business was supported by incremental contribution from newly operational lines and recently-acquired Alipurduar asset.
Distribution business revenue growth was driven by higher energy sales and better collection efficiency. The growth opportunity in transmission and distribution business continues to be very promising, the company said.
Distribution loss remains low at 7.64 per cent in Q2FY22; the distribution loss of 3.19 per cent in Q2FY21 is not comparable YoY as meter readings, as per guidelines, was paused in Q1FY21 and resumed in Q2FY21.
