Connecting Tata Motors’ share price decrease to the Q4 results 2024 announced on Friday last week, Chirag Jain, Senior Research Analyst at Emkay Global Financial Services, stated, “Tata Motors Q4 results 2024 were modest, with minimal margin expansion across businesses despite greater volumes. The company remains cautiously hopeful across all businesses, with H1 likely to be weaker and the premium luxury market considered as resilient despite overall developing demand worries. While deleveraging progress continues, we believe the best may be behind for all businesses due to i) a declining orderbook, normalizing mix, and higher customer acquisition costs at JLR, with FCF generation to normalize; ii) a flattish growth outlook for the domestic CV space; and iii) a moderating India PV outlook (though TTMT to outperform on new launches). FY25E/26E EPS is virtually unchanged (we assume a 7/8% revenue/EBITDA CAGR over FY24-26E).
