Tata Motors is likely to post over Rs 2,600 crore loss on fall in sales due to a coronavirus crisis and weak performance of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR). Analysts at Kotak Securities expect the auto firm to post loss of Rs 2,667 crore in Q4. Consolidated revenue is likely to fall 28.5 per cent on-year to Rs 61,803 crore. ICICI Securities sees the firm reporting Rs 1,985-crore loss for the quarter under review.
"We expect Tata Motors to report a consolidated topline of Rs 57,848 crore, down 33 per cent YoY. Ebitda is expected at Rs 4,513 crore with corresponding margins at 7.8 per cent, down 360 basis points QoQ," ICICI Securities also said in a report.
In Q4FY19, Tata Motors had reported consolidated profit of Rs 2,215.9 crore and revenue of Rs 86,422 crore.
"COVID-19 has put the brakes on Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) product/market mix improvement, and there would be high uncertainty for JLR volumes, particularly in EU, UK, & US in first half of FY21, although China is making a comeback," said Motilal Oswal in a report.
