Motilal Oswal Report

TCI Express Ltd.’s Q3 FY24 revenues stood flat YoY at ~Rs 3.1 billion (8% below our estimate). The volumes were adversely impacted by the weak macroeconomic environment, muted festive demand, and the long holiday season during the quarter. Volumes in Q3 FY24 stood at 0.25 million tonnes (-1% YoY), while realisation stood at Rs 12,474 per ton (flat YoY and down 2% QoQ).

Ebitda for the quarter stood at Rs 456 million with a margin of 14.6% (versus our estimate of 16.3%). Margins were adversely impacted by lower volumes handled.
