Tata Motors Standalone Financial Results for the Quarter and Half Year ended September 30, 2015

During the quarter, MHICV continued its growth trajectory with volume growth of 35.3% Y-o-Y and 8.7% Q-o-Q on the back of the continued replacement demand, moderate pre buying and better profitability of the freight operators. The strong growth in MHICV has led to the overall revenue of the Company increasing to Rs 10,501 crores with a growth of 20.0% Y-o-Y. This along with ongoing cost reduction and other margin improvement initiatives have resulted in improvement of 840 bps Y-o-Y in the EBITDA margin of the Company.

However, the LCV segments (mainly the SCV) continued to remain weak in the quarter, due to the constrained financing environment and lack of last mile load availability. During the quarter, the Company launched new smart pick-up Tata ACE Mega with rated payload of 1 Tonne, with the best-in-class fuel efficiency and lowest cost of ownership. It is an innovative cargo transport solution in the Small Commercial Vehicle (SCV) segment.
