Tata Motors Consolidated:

TML continued its strong performance in Q1 FY24 with Revenues at ₹102.2K Cr (up 42% yoy), EBITDA at ₹14.7K Cr (up 177% yoy) and EBIT of ₹8.3KCr (higher by ₹8.8KCr), all showing a sharp improvement driven by JLR and CV businesses whilst the PV business was steady. JLR revenues improved by 57% to £6.9b on strong wholesales and improved mix resulting in EBIT margins of 8.6% (+1,300bps). CV volumes were lower by 15% over prior year due to transition to BS6 Phase 2. However, the EBIT margins improved to 6.5% (+370bps) benefiting from the demand-pull strategy and richer mix. PV business was steady with 11.1% revenue growth and EBIT of 1.0% (+10bps). Overall PBT (bei) improved by ₹10.3KCr to ₹5.3KCr and Net Profit was ₹3.3KCr.

Looking Ahead:

We remain optimistic on the demand situation despite near term uncertainties and expect a moderate inflationary environment to continue in the near term. We aim to deliver a strong performance in the rest of the year too, thanks to a healthy order book coupled with low-break-even in JLR, a steady improvement in demand whilst we continue to drive our demand-pull strategy in CV, a set of exciting launches ahead of the festive season in PV and continued aggression in EVs.

PB Balaji, Group Chief Financial Officer, Tata Motors said: “FY24 has begun on the right note with all automotive verticals delivering strong performances. The distinct strategy employed by each business is now delivering consistent results and making them structurally stronger. We remain confident of sustaining this momentum in the rest of the year and achieve our stated goals.”

  • The higher profitability year-on-year reflects favourable volume, mix, pricing and foreign exchange revaluation offset partially by higher inflation and supplier claims.

Looking Ahead:

Q2 production and cashflow is expected to be lower than Q1 reflecting the annual summer plant shutdown while wholesales and profitability are expected to be more in line with recent quarters.  

Adrian Mardell, JLR Chief Executive Officer, said: “I am pleased to report a third consecutive quarter of strengthening financial performance for JLR. We have had a strong start to the financial year and delivered our highest production levels in nine quarters and our highest Q1 cashflow on record. This is testament to the thousands of determined people in the business working tirelessly to deliver every aspect of our Reimagine strategy.”
