Note that the recent recovery in rupee has ensured a much-awaited trend reversal in FII fund flows. That in turn has helped rupee climb to a spot among the top three emerging market (EM) currencies against the US dollar last month.

This gives global investors the confidence they need to buy into local assets that promise higher relative returns due to the likelihood of a stable currency.

The biggest boost to the rupee has come in the shape of fund inflows. Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) have net bought more than US$1 bn in local equities and debt securities since July, data from NSDL showed.

Check out which stocks FIIs are buying this time.

Key Quarterly Results

Adani Power: During market hours yesterday, the Adani group company reported a 16-fold surge in consolidated profit after tax at Rs 47.8 bn compared with Rs 2.8 bn in the same quarter last year.

Consolidated total revenue for the quarter jumped 115% YoY to Rs 155.1 bn compared with Rs 72.1 bn in the corresponding quarter last year.

This increase in revenue was aided by increase in PPA tariffs due to higher import coal prices and greater alternate coal usage, improved merchant and short-term tariffs, revival of 1,234 MW Bid-2 PPA with Gujarat DISCOMs, and higher prior period revenue recognition.

Adani Power, along with the power plants of its subsidiaries achieved an average plant load factor (PLF) of 58.6% and aggregate sales volumes of 16.3 billion units on an installed base of 13,650 MW.

IndiGo: InterGlobe Aviation has reported a narrowing of losses to Rs 10.6 bn in the June quarter compared with a loss of Rs 16.8 bn in the March 2022 quarter and Rs 31.7 bn in the year-ago quarter.

Headwinds caused by depreciating rupee and higher fuel prices led to losses, the company said in a BSE filing.

Revenues surged 327.5% YoY to Rs 128.6 bn compared with Rs 30.1 bn reported in the year-ago quarter.

IndiGO CEO Ronojoy Dutta said,

  • Our revenue performance this quarter was impressive. We reported the highest ever revenue generated by the company and thereby produced profits at an operational level.

    However, cost pressures on fuel and foreign exchange prevented us from translating this strong revenue performance into net profitability.

IndiGo has a total cash balance of Rs 190.7 bn comprising Rs 83 bn of free cash and Rs 107.7 bn of restricted cash.
