UltraTech’s second quarter results, while complex to analyse due to the Century Textiles (Century) merger, was ahead of estimates led by better realisations and costs, driving 29% Ebitda growth, said CLSA. Management targets to bring debt-to-Ebitda below 2 times by March 2020 which should happen, and it is looking to monetise non-core assets, the brokerage said.
