Tata Motors today reported consolidated revenues (net of excise) of Rs.61,020 crores for the quarter, as against Rs.64,683 crores for the corresponding quarter of the previous year, due to lower sales and weaker geographic mix at Jaguar Land Rover(JLR), partially offset by strong revenue growth in standalone business on the back of continued M&HCV growth. The Consolidated Profit before tax for the quarter was Rs.4,359 crores, as compared to Rs.7,528 crores for the corresponding quarter of the previous year and the Consolidated Profit after tax (post minority interest and share of profit / (loss) of associates(net)) for the quarter was Rs.2,769 crores as compared to Rs.5,398 crores for the corresponding quarter of the previous year.
Fleet replacement demand mainly in the high tonnage segment, continued to support the Company sales growth of 20.7% Y-o-Y in the domestic MHICV segment in the quarter. However, the domestic LCV segments (mainly the SCV) continued to remain weak, witnessing a de-growth of 19.0% Y-o-Y, due to the tough financing environment and lack of last mile load availability.
