"TVS Motors Q4FY21 results were significantly ahead of our and consensus estimates. While commodities continue to inch upward, the company was able to mitigate the impact via price hikes and better mix," CLSA said in an earnings review note.
"While the stock continues to trade at a premium to its mass-market two-wheeler peers, we believe this trend can continue due to share gains, higher EPS growth and improving FCF conversion," it said.
In December 2020, the board of directors of the $8.5 billion TVS Group's holding companies had approved the so-called memorandum of family arrangement (MFA) between various members of the TVS family. Present shareholders of the holding companies primarily consist of third and fourth generation family members of TVS Group founder T V Sundaram Iyengar.
The group in February 2021 filed a composite scheme of amalgamation and arrangement involving its holding companies at the National Company Law Tribunal in Chennai.
