Motilal Oswal on its report published on 28 October 2020 said," 2QFY21 marked initial signs of volume recovery, the benefit of the mix, and cost-cutting initiatives coming together. This coupled with normalcy in working capital as well as tight control on Cape resulted in FCF turning positive. JLR's near-term volumes may be at risk from a potential second wave of COVID. However, mix improvement and tight cost/Capex control would drive sharp improvement in operating performance and debt reduction. We upgrade our FY22E EPS by 13% to factor in lower tax in JLR (reversal of deferred tax). Maintain Buy, with TP of INR230 (Sep'22 SOTP)."
