Investment Rationale

Earlier this year, JSW Energy’s board decided not to pursue electric vehicle business in order to focus on power business and on demonstrated, value-accretive M&A, said CLSA. This should reduce investor concerns on profitable growth and cash diversion into unrelated projects, it said. JSW Energy is a ‘value’ stock, said CLSA. With catalysts lined up, CLSA sees it recouping part of the last five years of de-rating.
