RIL Q1 results LIVE: Pankaj Pandey, Head – Research, ICICI direct on RIL-Jio Financial Services Demerger

Against an implied value of 133 per share of Reliance Strategic Investments Ltd. (to be renamed as Jio Financial Services), post its demerger from Reliance Industries, the market has valued the entity at 250-260 per share. This is due to its strong networth of ~ 1 lakh crore (on consolidated basis) which is seen enabling faster growth in an already competitive financial marketplace.

In the initial phase, we expect the Jio Financial Services stock to follow implied value determined by market participants. We expect the company to deliver higher growth given the huge opportunity in the financial sector in the country and its own strong capitalisation, which will ensure that the company would not need to raise external equity capital for reasonably long period of time, thereby limiting any dilution overhang.

RIL Q1 results LIVE: Jio ARPU may remain flattish QoQ at ₹180: Morgan Stanley

Morgan Stanley estimates Reliance Industries to post a sombre quarter overall, with 14% YoY EBITDA and 9% revenue growth. In the telecom segment, it expects Jio to report flattish ARPU QoQ at 180, with 8 million subscriber net adds in telecom and flattish EBITDA margins.

RIL Q1 results LIVE: Reliance Q1 net profit may fall 19% QoQ: Morgan Stanley

Reliance Industries’ EBITDA and net profit may fall by 0.5% and 19% QoQ, respectively, as per Morgan Stanley estimates. Key to these declines will be lower diesel margins, which are negated by higher chemical margins and lower ethane costs. Consumer retail should see steady on-trend EBITDA growth and some margin expansion.

RIL should see Oil to Chemicals EBITDA decline only slightly, at 4% QoQ, despite the significant correction in refining margins. We estimate RIL's GRM at $11.5/bbl for Q1FY24 (-15% QoQ), much closer to its peer trend line vs last nine months of relative underperformance, in our view. 

Chemicals EBITDA/ton should improve by 19% QoQ with better PE, PX, PET integrated spreads and the 20% YTD decline in US ethane costs, it said.

RIL Q1 results LIVE: RIL Q1 results expected to be lower QoQ due to decline in refining spreads: Prabhudas Lilladher

Brokerage house Prabhudas Lilladher estimates refining throughput of 17.0 MTPA in Q1FY24 as compared to 17.1 MT in Q4. Petchem profitability will improve QoQ, due to demand recovery post China reopening, it said.

We expect Jio to show steady performance with 2.9% QoQ revenue growth and 1.5% QoQ ARPU hike, while retail segment profitability should be resilient. 

Overall earnings to decrease QoQ due to lower GRMs but recovery in petchem to make up. Jio and retail performance will be steady, it added.

RIL Q1 results LIVE: Reliance Jio ARPU growth likely to be restricted: ICICI Securities 

Reliance Jio’s Q1FY24 revenue is estimated to rise 2.3% QoQ to 23,900 crore, benefiting from subscriber additions, while ARPU expansion may be limited. EBITDA may grow 2.5% QoQ to 12,500 crore while cost continues to rise. Net profit is seen at 4,800 crore, up 2.2% QoQ, according to ICICI Securities.

Reliance Jio subscriber growth is expected to accelerate with likely 9 million net additions, however, ARPU growth may be restricted by the adoption of unlimited data by 5G users, said ICICI Securities.

We expect cost inflation to be moderate for RJio as it capitalises the initial 5G-related operating cost, it said.

Reliance Jio is expected to deliver ~2.5% QoQ rise in EBITDA, while we expect RIL’s retail EBITDA to grow 6.4% QoQ, the brokerage house said. 

Overall, it expects RIL’s consolidated EBITDA to decline 3% QoQ and PAT 14% QoQ due to higher depreciation, interest costs and tax driving the higher decline in PAT vs EBITDA for the quarter.

As per the estimates of Kotak Institutional Equities, RIL’s standalone EBITDA may decline 14 per cent QoQ on weaker GRM (gross refinery margins), and flat petrochemicals margins, but partly offset by marginally higher E&P (exploration and production) profitability.

"We expect consolidated EBITDA to decline by a modest 2 per cent QoQ, as weaker standalone performance is offset by benefits of fuel over-recoveries in O2C, and QoQ improvements in Jio and Retail," Kotak said.
