TVS Motor share price on Tuesday declined to Rs 360.80 on BSE, losing about 5% from previous close of Rs 379.80.

While earlier, the company had posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 160.05 crore in the same quarter a year ago.
Emkay Global said, ''We expect growth to moderate to 2% over FY19-21E mainly due to price hikes stemming from regulatory changes. Going forward, lower scale, partial absorption of regulatory costs and marketing spends should restrict margin expansion, in our view. We cut our FY20/21E EPS by 15% to 14% to Rs15 to Rs 16.8, mainly due to a 9% reduction in volume assumptions. The volume outlook has deteriorated due to the weak start of monsoons and a lack of government support in the recent budget.''
