Vivek Chand Sehgal, Chairman of MSS said, "Our teams and plants across the globe have also resumed operations and are working closely with our customers to fulfill their requirements. We now expect demand for the auto industry to gain momentum in the coming quarters of this fiscal year."
Citi Research in its report stated that the Q1FY21 is not representative of the long-term trends despite the severe losses in the quarter.
According to CLSA, the results were below the estimates but the business was impacted due to the shutdown and negative operating leverage. Debt levels, however, are manageable, as the company continues to control working capital and investments, it said.
"MSS highlighted that 84 percent of its plants are now operating at >50 percent capacity and it expects a strong sequential improvement in Q2. Management also expects the Greenfield plants in SMP should start to turn Ebitda positive as they have managed to reduce operational costs and excess manpower," the report added.
