CIL reported a steady operational performance for Q3FY20. Going forward, we model sales volume of 600 MT for FY20E and 625 MT for FY21E. Furthermore, we expect EBITDA margins to remain steady at ~21-22% over the next couple of years. We value the stock at 5x FY21E adjusted EV/EBITDA and arrive at a target price of Rs 200. We maintain our HOLD recommendation.
