Commenting on Q2 FY22 performance …

Dr. Anish Shah, Managing Director & CEO, M&M Ltd, said, “We have seen significant all around improvement in our performance this quarter. Our strong show in the Auto and Farm sectors was complemented well by the improved performance in the group companies. Our investments in digital platforms are doing well and present a meaningful opportunity to create and unlock value.”

Rajesh Jejurikar, Executive Director, M&M Ltd, said, “FES continued to deliver robust performance both in terms of market share and financial metrics despite steep commodity inflation. We had a blockbuster XUV7OO launch witnessing bookings of more than 70k. The demand for our other key automotive products also remains strong. With better availability of semi-conductors, we hope to maintain the volume growth momentum Q3 onwards. We are poised well to deliver very strong growth and returns through an exciting new product portfolio.“

Manoj Bhat, Group Chief Financial Officer, M&M Ltd, said, “Commodity prices have impacted our margins in both the Auto and Farm business, but our focus on cost management and optimization has helped mitigate some of the impact.”
