Tata Motors held an investor day conference, where management discussed its product strategy, revenue drivers, and profitability expectations for commercial and passenger vehicle businesses. The structural growth story of the company remains intact with the turnaround of passenger vehicle (PV) business and beneficiary of the domestic CV upcycle.
The outlook for domestic commercial vehicle (CV) business is at the cusp of a sharp cyclical rebound, with notable demand arising from infrastructure, mining, and e-commerce activities. The PV business has improved significantly because of strong sales momentum with the ‘New Forever’ portfolio. During 9M FY21, the company gained market share of 300 bps in the PV segment from 9MFY2020 levels, led by the launch of New Altroz hatchback during Q4FY2020. The company expects high single-digit EBITDA in the next three years for the PV business and FCF breakeven in FY2023.
Tata Motor’s focus on product strategy, increased customer engagement, new product launches, and increased EV penetration are key drivers for the PV business. Management is committed towards reaching zero debt for its automotive business division. The company had highlighted three key strategies for becoming a zero-debt company – FCF generation through higher sales and profitability, divestment of non-core businesses, and equity topup for remaining debt. A strong result turnaround in key businesses during Q3FY2021 has a strong reason to believe that the company is on the right track towards achieving the zero debt level.
Sharekhan is positive on Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) business as well. Outlook for the JLR business is positive, aided by macro-environment improvements in Europe, UK, America, and China. Rolling out of COVID-19 vaccination programmes in many countries is keeping the overall outlook positive for the coming months, following the respective approval of various vaccines. Sharekhan expects all-round improvement in the company’s business and, thus, maintains Buy rating on the stock. The JLR will also hold investor conference later this week, post which it will update on the JLR business
