Bajaj Auto: The 'Pulse' eases...

Jan 15, 2003

Bajaj Auto's growth engine seems to have slowed down a little. In the December quarter, while revenues have increased by 14.7%, overall volumes were up only 4%. However, higher operating margins saw net profits grow by nearly 24%. On a nine month basis, the company has recorded an encouraging 19% topline growth (9% volume growth) and 4% bottomline growth. However, excluding extraordinary items net profits were actually up nearly 49% in 9mFY03. Bajaj Auto had received an extraordinary insurance premium from Allianz in the corresponding period last year.
