EBITDA is expected to fall in high-single digits on an annual basis primarily due to weak zinc division performance. We would closely monitor management comments on the near-term demand outlook, pricing environment, strategy, and progress on the expected demerger of its divisions, volume and mined production guidance, deleveraging efforts, and dividend payout strategy."

We expect Vedanta to report around a 36% YoY decline in profit at Rs.1,983 crore compared with Rs.3,099 crore. Also, Revenue to decline by around 10% YoY to 34,186 crore. Lower commodity prices and lower volumes in the oil and gas segment are expected to be the main reasons for the decline. Major focus would be on the update regarding the debt situation as well as management's guidance on future dividend payout and regarding the demerger status."
