Tata Motors' Stock in Focus as Company Meets Global Investors

Jun 8, 2021

Investors will be keeping a close watch on Tata Motors share price this week as the company's management began its five-day-long meeting with investors across the world.

In an exchange filing, Tata Motors said it would be holding meetings with investors such as Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's Rare Enterprises, Blackrock Investment, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, Franklin Templeton Investments, JP Morgan Asset Management, and others.

Stock of the company rose 5% yesterday post the announcement. Today, Tata Motors ended the day up by 3%.

Poor earnings

The meeting with marquee investors comes after the company posted poor earnings for the March quarter.

Last month, the auto major reported a surprise consolidated net loss of Rs 76.1 bn for the quarter ended March 2021, mainly on account of asset write downs in subsidiary Jaguar Land Rover (JLR).

Tata Motors, which owns JLR, has incurred cash write downs on assets worth Rs 96.1 bn. This is apart from the restructuring costs of Rs 53.9 bn. In total, the exceptional loss related to JLR stood at nearly Rs 150 bn.

Post its earnings, Tata Motors had said that it expects near-term challenges in both the businesses due to semi-conductor shortages and the ongoing second wave.

US$425 m worth overseas bonds

Last week on Thursday, Tata Motors raised about US$425 m in an overseas bond to pare debt and meet expenses.

Investors showed huge confidence as the sale saw bids for nearly five times the debt on offer.

Reportedly, Templeton, Blackrock, and HSBC are among the bidders that sought to own those papers offering 4.35%.

N Chandrasekaran, chairman of Tata Sons had said at Tata Motors' annual general meeting (AGM) last year that the automaker will turn net debt free in three years, improve profits, and invest in new technologies and products.

JLR's new strategy

Earlier this year in February, JLR had announced its new global strategy, 'Reimagine'.

As part of this strategy, the firm will reposition and redesign Jaguar as an all-electric luxury car brand by 2025.

JLR will also evolve as a maker of luxury electric sport-utility vehicles globally.

Electric vehicles (EVs) will form 60% of JLR's annual sales by 2030 and the firm expects to stop sales of combustion engine vehicles by 2036 as part of its overall aim to become a net zero carbon business by 2039.

In 2019, 0.2% of the company's business was EVs. At present, it is around 2%.

Given the huge interest in EV space following Tesla's India entry, investors will be closely tracking Tata Motors' efforts, especially, as some analysts have raised concerns that the company may already be behind the curve on the e-vehicle segment.

Speaking of electric vehicles, here's what Aditya Vora wrote about EVs in a recent Profit Hunter editorial.

  • Smart phones are what charging infrastructure is in an quote of Rs 357 touched on 3 March EV ecosystem.

    Electric vehicles are the OLA/Ubers of today.

    Low cost 3G/4G is the declining battery costs in an electric vehicle.

    For EVs to be successful all these factors have to converge together at the same time.

    You cannot build electric charging infrastructure when the costs of EVs are expected to be 2-3x of gasoline cars.

    At the same time electric vehicles cannot run without a charging infrastructure.
