For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, Tata Motors reported consolidated revenues (net of excise) of Rs.72,256 crores as against Rs.70,212 crores for the corresponding quarter last year. This broadly reflects:-

  • In Jaguar Land Rover business-Strong sales in the UK , Europe, North America and other Overseas markets which helped in partially offsetting lower sales in China and weaker model mix in the quarter, and
  • In Standalone business-Continued robust volume growth in M&HCV segment.

Consolidated Profit before tax for the quarter was Rs.4,176 crores, against Rs.5,732 crores for the corresponding quarter last year broadly due to weaker sales mix (both model and market), higher depreciation and amortization expenses, non recurrence of an annual China tax rebate (received in Q3 FY 15 but in current year it was received in Q1 FY 16) and other items in the Jaguar Land Rover business.

Consolidated Profit after tax (post minority interest and profit / loss in respect of associate companies) for the quarter was Rs.3,508 crores, against the Consolidated Profit after tax (post minority interest and profit / loss in respect of associate companies) of Rs.3,581 crores for the corresponding quarter last year.

Tata Motors Standalone Financial Results for the Quarter and Nine months ended December 31, 2015

During the quarter, M&HCV continued its growth trajectory with volume growth of 14.8% Y-o-Y on the back of the continued replacement demand, initial fleet expansion demand and better profitability of the freight operators. The strong growth in M&HCV has led to the overall revenue of the Company increasing to Rs.10,001 crores with a growth of 10.4% Y-o-Y. This along with ongoing cost reduction and other margin improvement initiatives have resulted in improvement of 860 bps Y-o-Y (after adjusting for the Singur and other one offs in Q3 FY 15) in the EBITDA margin of the Company.

While the overall LCV continued to decline but several segments of the LCV, both in goods and passenger carrier segment, witnessed positive growth momentum during the quarter.

Profit before tax was £499 million (after an exceptional item of £30 million of initial insurance recoveries related to Tianjin) for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 compared to £685 million in the corresponding quarter last year driven by lower EBITDA, higher depreciation and amortisation, offset partially by favourable overall revaluation of unrealised FX and commodity hedges and USD debt as well as higher China JV profitability.
