Investing in Tata Motors

Pros

  • Product diversity and global reach

TML is a player in India’s PV and CV markets, offering a wide range of products. Through its 2008 acquisition of JLR, TML gained access to high-end auto markets in the US, Europe, the UK, and China. 

In the future, Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited (TPEM) plans to channel its funds into innovative automotive technologies, EVs, and specialised BEV platforms. 

The company reached the milestone of 150,000 cumulative EV manufacturing during FY24, selling 73.8K EVs, up 48% from FY23. The company’s total turnover reached 573.5K units annually, up 6.0% from FY23, and its profits reached ₹1.4K crore, its highest level ever.

  • Improved financial risk ratio

TML generated excellent free cash flows in FY24 as a result of its excellent business growth. The automotive sector’s free cash flow for the year reached an all-time high of ₹26.9K crore (up from ₹7.8K crore in FY23) thanks to a significant rise in cash profits and positive working capital. 

Net automotive debt was further lowered to ₹16.0K crore. With this progress, the company is on track to meet its publicly announced objective of being net-auto debt-free by the end of FY25.

  • A dominant position in the market

TML leads the domestic CV market and provides a wide range of automotive products, such as light, medium, and heavyweight CVs. The volume of domestic wholesale CV in Q4 FY24 was 104.6K units. 

The PV market share of TML has also been steadily rising. In Q4, PV sales were at 155.6K units, up 14.8% year over year, driven by recent SUV facelifts and a variety of powertrains. 

Cons

  • Automotive industry cycles and intense competition

TML is still vulnerable to the cyclical auto sector, which has historically experienced high levels of volatility as a result of macroeconomic issues, particularly for the domestic CV market. In the international luxury vehicle market, JLR has only a modest market share and is up against fierce competition from major, well-known automakers like Tesla, Mercedes, and others. 

  • High level of capital intensity in its operations

The automotive industry is extremely capital-intensive, requiring large sums of funds for ongoing technological advancements and the introduction of new products. The switch to electric vehicles also requires significant investment in product manufacturing and research.

Conclusion

Tata Motors’ Q4 numbers revealed areas of strength like its commercial vehicle rebound and Jaguar’s record revenues. However, the company isn’t immune to industry-wide challenges such as higher operational costs. 

Although the Q4 results represent confidence in TML’s long-term strategy execution, as with any investment, it is always a good idea to weigh the strengths and weaknesses of a stock before investing.
