Tata Motors Soars in FY24, JLR Records Best Performance Since 2015


For FY24, TML reported record revenues of ₹ 437.9K Cr, an all-time high EBITDA at ₹ 62.8K Cr, highest ever PBT (bei) of ₹28.9K Cr (+₹27.1K Cr over the previous year) and net profit of ₹31.8K Cr (+₹29.1K Cr over the previous year). The strong performance has also helped to recognize a Deferred Tax Asset of ₹8.3K Cr at JLR and TML.

In Q4 FY24, TML delivered a strong performance with revenue of ₹120.0K Cr (up 13.3%), EBITDA at ₹17.9K Cr (up 26.6%) and EBIT of ₹11.0K Cr (+₹3.8K Cr) with all three auto businesses delivering a strong performance. PBT (bei) stood at ₹9.5K Cr (+₹4.4K Cr) and net profit was ₹17.5K Cr (+₹12.0K Cr). Net automotive debt reduced further to ₹16.0K Cr.

The Board of Directors have recommended a final dividend of ₹ 3/- per Ordinary Share and ₹3.10 per A Ordinary Share and a special dividend of ₹ 3/- per Ordinary Share and ₹3.10 per A Ordinary Share subject to approval by the shareholders.

Looking Ahead:
We remain cautiously optimistic on domestic demand over the full year and expect H1 to be relatively weaker.​ The premium luxury segment demand is likely to remain resilient despite emerging concerns on overall demand. ​Despite this, we are confident of delivering a strong performance in FY25.

PB Balaji, Group Chief Financial Officer, Tata Motors said:
“It is pleasing to report the FY24 results during which Tata Motors Group delivered its highest ever revenues, profits, and free cash flows. The India business is now debt free, and we are on track to become net automotive debt free on a consolidated basis in FY25. The businesses are executing well on their distinct strategies and therefore, we are confident of sustaining this strong performance in the coming years.”

JLR continued its strong financial performance trend in the financial year, with another record-breaking quarter in Q4 FY24. Revenue for the quarter was £7.9 billion, up 11% versus Q4 FY23 and up 6% versus Q3 FY24. Revenues for FY24 were £29.0 billion – JLR’s highest ever full year revenue and up 27% compared to the prior year.

PBT (bei) in Q4 was £661 million (+£293 million yoy) and EBIT margin was 9.2% in Q4, (+270bps yoy). The higher profitability yoy reflects increased volumes and reduced material costs, offset partially by increased marketing spend compared to a year ago. Profit after tax (“PAT”) in Q4 was £1.4 billion vs a profit of £259 million in the same quarter a year ago. PBT for FY24 was £2.2 billion – the highest since FY15; and PAT for FY24 was £2.6 billion. PAT also factors in the recognition of a deferred tax asset (DTA) of £1.0 billion due to a reassessment of future recoverability tax losses and allowances.

Free cash flow for the quarter was £892 million and £2.3 billion for the full year, the highest ever full year cash flow. The year ended with a cash balance was £4.2 billion and net debt £0.7 billion and a total liquidity was £5.7 billion, including the £1.5 billion undrawn revolving credit facility maturing April 1, 2026.  

Looking ahead
We will continue to focus on brand activation to maintain order book. We expect EBIT margins in FY25 to be around the FY24 level. We anticipate a modest increase in investment spend to £3.5b but still expect to become net debt zero during FY25.

Adrian Mardell, JLR Chief Executive Officer, said:
“This has been a year of great strategic progress at JLR and I would like to thank our clients, our people, our suppliers and partners for their role in our success. We have delivered a record financial performance for the company, generating free cashflow of £2.3 billion, enabling us to reduce net debt to £0.7 billion. The foundation of this performance was the sustained global demand for our modern luxury vehicles, led by our Range Rover and Defender brands, underpinned by a consistent focus on operational improvement. We are entering the next exciting phase of our Reimagine strategy which will see us bring to life our modern luxury electric vehicles and deliver an accompanying modern luxury experience for our clients, ensuring we continue to vigorously address the challenges we have encountered in 2024.”
