Homegrown auto major Tata Motors on Monday reported a loss of Rs 4,450 crore for the first quarter ended June 30. The company had posted a net loss of Rs 8,437.99 crore in the year-ago period.
It reported a 107.6 percent rise in the net revenue during the period under review at Rs 66,406 crore, the company said in an exchange filing.
While revenue was 1.5 percent higher than the estimates of CNBC-TV18's poll of analysts, its loss was below the estimate of Rs 1,379.
Its consolidated EBITDA rose 570 basis points to 8.3 percent in Q1 FY22, against the CNBC-TV18 poll's 8.3 percent. But its consolidated EBIT decreased 1380 basis points to 1.3 percent.
The domestic retail sale of Tata Motors surged 340 percent to 95.2k units, the company said.
While its India operations have shown a significant improvement as compared to the corresponding quarter a year ago, the second wave created some supply issues that slowed down the growth momentum of the company as compared to the previous quarter, the company said.
However, It expects the performance to improve from October onwards on the backs of an improved supply chain.
Tata Motors' British arm, Jaguar Landrover (JLR) reported a loss of 110 million pounds as compared to 56 million pounds of CNBC-TV18's poll. JLR's EBITDA margin stood at 9 percent and its EBIT margin stood at -0.9 percent.
Retail sales of JLR in the first quarter were 1,24,537 vehicles -- up 68.1 percent from the corresponding quarter a year ago.
"The shortage of semiconductors is presently very dynamic and difficult to forecast," the company said. As semiconductor supply improves, JLR expects to achieve a positive EBIT margin and positive free cash flow in the second half of the financial year, it said.
The demand remains strong for JLR and India PV while CV demand is showing gradual improvements, the company said in the release.
"In this dynamic business environment, we anticipate that semiconductor issues, commodity inflation, pandemic uncertainty will have an impact in the short term. We expect the performance to improve progressively from H2 as supply chain and the pandemic situation improves," it said.
