Maruti Suzuki India Ltd Chairman Speech

It is my pleasure to express my thought through the Annual Integrated Report of Maruti Suzuki India Limited.

The COVID-19 pandemic has compelled people all over the world to make changes in their way of working and living.

Since the time of the first lockdown, the safety and health of our employees has been the paramount objective for the Company. We have been continually educating employees on the importance of self-discipline and adherence to all safety directions and guidelines issued by the government. In addition, your Company also framed more detailed guidelines for employees to follow at home and in the shop floor. These practices were communicated for adherence to our vendors and dealers also. Your Company has paid employees their salary during the lockdown period and has also been able to give help to vendors and dealers where this was required and justified. The financial reserves of your Company have enabled us to deal in a satisfactory manner with this unexpected event that came so suddenly. I hope and pray that all our shareholders have remained safe and healthy and continue to take all precautions to protect themselves, their families and society.

The downturn experienced by the automobile sector in FY 2019-20 was in a sense inevitable. It brought home the lesson that if there is a combination of substantial price increases with uncertainty in the minds of consumers there will almost certainly be a drop in the sale of high value consumer durables. The sale of cars in the country fell by 18% compared to the previous year. Your Company's sales also dropped by 16%. The profits after tax were lower by 25%. Your directors have recommended a dividend of Rs 60 per share in line with the fall in profits.

The major challenge before your Company in FY 2019-20 was to meet the requirement of transiting all products to meet BS-VI standards before 31st March 2020. I am happy to report that 14 models were made BS-VI compliant and introduced to the market in a phased manner. The first BS-VI model was introduced in the month of April 2019 itself. The S-Cross was to be introduced by the end of March 2020, but the lockdown prevented that from happening. I am sure all of you would join me in congratulating employees of the Company, and especially those in engineering, supply chain and production, for the great efforts put in to achieve this success. However, moving to BS-VI was not the only regulatory compliance required. Safety regulations had also been enhanced and included side impact and offset regulations, ABS modification, compulsory airbags, pedestrian protection and reverse parking camera. These changes were introduced in FY 2018-19 and FY 2019-20. As can be understood the outcome of so many enhancements of emission and safety regulations resulted in a significant increase in the cost of production of cars. Safety and emission regulations in India are now very similar to those in Europe.

Several State governments also decided to substantially increase the rates of road tax in FY 2019-20. The road tax is now a one-time tax and is realised at the time of sale. This further added to the consumer's cost of acquisition at a time when prices had risen significantly due to regulatory changes. It was also unfortunate that in FY 2019-20 the entire financial sector was under considerable stress because of rising NPA's of banks and NBFC's. Consumer financing suffered as a consequence, with banks demanding higher initial deposits for a car loan and tightening the creditworthiness norms. Almost 80% of our car sales are financed and these changes made the situation even worse.

The uncertainty in the minds of consumers during the year was created by the availability of BS-IV and BS-VI cars during the year. The consumer was uncertain as to which version to buy. At the same time there were rumours that there was likely to be a distress sale of BS-IV cars towards the end of the year, when manufacturers would have to liquidate unsold stocks before the 31st March. All this led to many consumers postponing buying decisions.

Even before FY 2019-20, the tax on cars in India was far higher than in any other car manufacturing country in the world. In the European Union (EU), the VAT is 19% and no other taxes. In Japan, taxes are around 10%. Given the much lower per capita incomes in India, this created an affordability issue for many aspiring car owners. In FY 2019-20, the increase in the cost of acquisition of a car, coupled with the higher hurdles to be crossed to obtain a loan, led to a fall in sales. It was proven that the price elasticity of demand is a real concept. It is quite apparent that if the manufacturing sector is to grow at a rate that would take its contribution to 25% of the GDP even by 2025, car sales must increase at a much higher rate than in the past. The car industry constitutes about 50% of the auto sector which contributes around 40% of the manufacturing sector's share of the GDP.

The woes of the auto sector were compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic even before the financial year ended. The lockdown from the 25th March 2020 led to disruption of the sale plans of all companies as the last week of March is always important. There could be no production in April and in May 2020 production was very limited extent because of the need to comply with all regulations and to ensure the safety of employees and customers. June production was better, and your Company expects to gradually increase production and sales as the situation improves and workers return from their villages.

I am happy to report that our sales and service organisation has become fully functional and the demand for your Company's products has recovered well. The economy in the rural areas is quite robust thanks to a good Rabi harvest and the expected normal monsoons. Tractor sales are already higher than last year. Our sales in the rural areas are growing faster than in the urban areas. We are hoping that in the second half of 2020-21, sales may near the performance of last year and 2021-22 should be better, especially if the Central and State governments recognise the importance of supporting faster growth of the car industry as a means of reviving the economy and creating larger employment opportunities.

The pricing policy for diesel and petrol seems to have changed. The gap between the two fuels has become very small and in several States diesel is costlier than petrol. Your Company presently has no diesel products in the BS-VI range. The percentage of diesel cars sold by the competition has fallen quite sharply. The market, at present, seems to favour smaller hatchbacks and petrol and CNG cars. Fortunately, we are well placed for such products.

The plan to shift the Gurugram facility has had to be delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your Company plans for contributing to the improvement of the environment continues to be treated as priority. All existing projects for water conservation, emission control and air quality monitoring on a real time basis continue. The sale of CNG cars in FY 2019-20 increased by 6.1% over the previous year. A 5 MW solar plant has been commissioned in Gurugram. In Manesar, in addition to the 1.3 MW solar plant, a new 20 MW solar project is under implementation and is expected to be completed in the first half of 2021.These will considerably reduce the carbon footprint.

Towards the end of March 2020, the Government of India asked your Company to help in the production of ventilators, required to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. We came to the conclusion that the most effective way to do this would be to help a small start-up company Agva Healthcare to scale-up production volumes. With support from a vendor, Motherson Sumi, we could reach a production of 400 ventilators a day by the end of April. Two of our joint venture companies are also involved in manufacturing masks and PPE.

CSR activities continue. As in other years we were able to fully utilise our budget. All the programmes approved by the Board are being implemented effectively. The effort is to increase the cost effectiveness of our implementation and this is helped by an independent external evaluation. In addition, your Company is building a 50-bed hospital in the Mehsana area of Gujarat, which lacks in medical facilities. This would be operational by April 2021. It can later be expanded to a 100-bed hospital if required. Our partner for operating the hospital is the well-known company Zydus Cadilla. A school is also being built in the same area and would be progressively expanded to provide education up to class 12. Its start has had to be postponed to June 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 epidemic has given your Company, as well as its vendors and dealers, an opportunity to review all systems of working and become more efficient and competitive. Thus, while we are going through difficult days, I believe we will all emerge stronger and fitter in the future.

Your Company continues to work very closely with Suzuki Motor Gujarat (SMG). Two production lines are fully operational in SMG, with a capacity of 500,000 units a year. The third line commissioning was delayed because of the fall in demand in FY 2019-20 and the pandemic. Its commissioning date will depend on market conditions in 2021.

The well-knit team of employees continues to the greatest strength of your Company. Over decades they have shown that when all employees of a company work unitedly for its growth and prosperity, a win-win situation is created for everyone. The competitiveness of the Company remains very high and it is able to meet and overcome all challenges. The full potential of employees, including the blue-collar workers, is enabled to develop fully under this form of management.

Our vendor partners have grown along with your Company and have been a very important reason for our success and competitiveness. We continue to work with them in a spirit of partnership for the mutual benefit of both. I am confident that many will become global players in the not so distant future.

I look to the future with a great deal of optimism. Many new opportunities are likely to open as the world adjusts to the post COVID-19 scene. The government has always been very supportive of manufacturing and I expect conditions for increasing our competitiveness and growth will continue to get better in the coming year. We have strong support from Japan in the form of the Suzuki Toyota combine in critical areas of technology and development. Combined with the strengths of our own organisation, your Company is well positioned to lead growth in the coming years.

May I thank all our shareholders for their consistent support to the management. I look forward to continued support as we take on the challenges of the future.

Jai Hind.
