Note that, Mahindra had earlier announced that it will not make any further investments in the ailing SUV-maker and wanted to give up its controlling stake after being unable to turn around the operations of the company.

The company's board moved a special resolution at its AGM to reduce its shareholding in SsangYong to less than 50%, an indication of a new investor coming in rather than a complete sell out.

Mahindra currently holds a 74.7% stake in SsangYong.

Now, how this pans out going forward remains to be seen. We will keep you updated on the developments from this space.

M&M share price opened the day 1.2%

Speaking of the automobile sector, have a look at the chart below which shows the performance of BSE auto index for the month of September since inception.

The BSE auto index ended in the red on only 3 out of the last 15 years for the month of September. That's a success ratio of 80%.

The auto index has entered the greed phase in September 2019 and will stay there until December 2021. This means there is still a lot of fuel left for auto stocks.

How automobile stocks perform in the coming months remains to be seen. Stay tuned for more updates from this space.

In another development, Take Solutions share price is also in focus after the company announced that the management has taken into consideration the impact of known internal and external events arising from COVID-19 pandemic in the assessment of recoverability of trade receivables, contract assets and certain investments in subsidiaries.

The liquidity and business constraints, consequent to impact of COVID 19 pandemic, have significantly hampered the operations of a step-down subsidiary viz.

Navitas Life Sciences GmbH, Germany (a direct subsidiary of Ecron Acunova and a step- down subsidiary of TAKE Solutions).

After assessing the current situation and considering the local requirements, the liquidation process of Navitas Life Sciences GmbH, Germany has been initiated as per the requirements of local laws, the reports noted.
