Automotive Business: The automotive industry in Q1 F2018 was impacted due to the impending transition to GST from 1st July 2017 with the Passenger Vehicles sales being adversely impacted in anticipation of a price reduction due to GST and reporting a nominal growth of 4.4%. The sales of Heavy Commercial Vehicle goods segment showed a dip as a result of pre-buying of BS3 vehicles in Q4 F2017, saturation of replacement demand and production constraints of BS4 models leading to Q1 F2018 sales being the lowest in past 13 quarters.

Tractor Business: Based on a normal monsoon outlook, tractors sales continued to post growth for the months of April and May 2017. However June 2017 witnessed a de-growth of 1.7% owing to the uncertainty with regard to transition to a GST regime. Overall the domestic tractor industry witnessed a growth of 8.5% in Q1 F2018. The company however, outperformed the industry and grew 13.2% leading to the highest ever domestic tractor market share for a quarter at 45.8%.

Outlook:
India’s macro-fundamentals remain robust due to sustainable growth, steady commodity prices and continuing push to the reforms drive by the government, which has just rolled out the GST - the biggest tax reform attempted in the country that will alter the landscape in due course of time.

The twin deficits remain under control and CPI inflation has fallen below the RBI’s lower bound of 2%. The monsoon has covered the whole country ahead of schedule. Cumulative seasonal rainfall and Kharif sowing has been higher than normal so far. The RBI has lowered the Repo rate in its latest policy and may ease further, if the monsoon turns out to be well spread and inflation readings remain benign.

India’s growth momentum is likely to pick up in the coming quarters with ongoing re-monetisation, further easing of interest rates and fillip to consumption demand. Your company remains geared to capitalise on these opportunities through its reach, products and focus on innovative technology.
