Tata Motors Ltd Chairman Speech

 

Emerging stronger

Tata Motors Croup is now operating as three independent business units of Commercial Vehicles, Passenger Vehicles and Jaguar Land Rover offering differentiated value propositions to their different customer segments whilst leveraging backend and corporate synergies where possible.

Dear Shareholders,

It is my privilege to write to you to present the Annual Report for FY22. I hope this letter finds you in good health.

Recent history has been relentless with the global pandemic, military conflict, growing inequality, supply chain shortages and more. Decades of experience has been squeezed into two dizzying years. Businesses have had to cope with this unprecedented sequence of events with speed and agility. While these changes have had a serious impact on businesses and communities, they have also accelerated some important trends for the future viz. i) Energy transition - irreversible move to green mobility, ii) Supply Chain Transition - rebalancing of supply chains to become resilient, iii) Digital transition - Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning becoming mainstream and iv) Talent transition - coming of age of the Talent Cloud - a diverse, inclusive, global talent pool that can be accessed remotely.

FY22 was a busy year for your Company as it navigated these challenges to successfully strengthen the fundamentals of the business. Global wholesales increased by 20% to 1,086,734 vehicles and revenues stood at ?278,454 crore, 11.5% higher as compared to FY21. EBIT margin stood at 0.7%, 190 bps lower as compared to FY21 due to impact of commodity inflation and semiconductor shortages, although we saw a sequential recovery.

Free cash flow (automotive) in the year was negative at ?9,472 crore (as compared to positive ?5,317 crore in FY21), primarily due to adverse working capital. The business showed strong sequential recovery with positive free cash flow (automotive) of ^ 11,916 crore in H2 of FY22.

Despite the margins being impacted by supply chain issues and runaway commodity inflation, our India business ended with strong free cash flows of ?1,879 crore. We are committed to restoring the profitability of this business as it returns to competitive growth and inflation stabilises.

Tata Motors Group is now operating as three independent business units of Commercial Vehicles, Passenger Vehicles and Jaguar Land Rover, offering differentiated value propositions to their different customer segments whilst leveraging backend and corporate synergies where possible. This has made Tata Motors lean, nimble and customer centric. Each of these businesses are self-sustaining which gives me the confidence that we will get to near zero net automotive debt by FY24.

Commercial Vehicles: In Commercial Vehicles, our offerings of smart, future ready mobility solutions with the lowest TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) have been well received. We launched over 80 new products and 120 variants across segments, to cater to the evolving needs of seamless cargo and people transport across sub segments and applications. We gained domestic market share in all segments vs FY21 - M&HCV to 58.2% (+10 bps), ILCV to 49.0% (+310 bps), Buses and Vans to 44.8% (+420 bps) and turned around SCV to 39.1% (+160 bps), to record a consolidated 44.9% (+250 bps). The Commercial Vehicles segment volumes grew by 37% in FY22, revenues grew by 58%, while EBIT margins improved by modest 130 bps, affected by the sharp commodity inflation.

Passenger and Electric Vehicles: The Passenger Vehicles segment was once again the standout performer during the year. Preference for our 'New Forever' range of vehicles continues to rise and we introduced over 25 new products and variants to lead in the fastest growing market segments. Our "Reimagine PV" strategy to rejuvenate the front-end sales system, dealership network and customer experience, is delivering excellent results. PV recorded its highest ever domestic annual sales of 3,70,354 units in FY22. Overall domestic market share increased to 12.1% (+390 bps vs FY21) and further to 13.4% in Q4 FY22.

The Passenger Vehicles segment grew volumes by 67%, revenues by 90% and EBIT margins improved by 750 bps with positive free cash flows in FY22. In Electric Vehicles, new records were set every quarter to register the highest ever annual EV sales of 19,105 units in FY22 (up 353% vs FY21) with penetrations touching 7.4% by Q4 FY22.

During FY22, we operationalised two subsidiaries: Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd to focus on passenger vehicles powered by 1C engines and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited to focus on accelerating the passenger EV business and its enabling ecosystem. We entered into a definitive agreement with TPG Rise Climate for them to invest ?7,500 crore ($1.0B) in the passenger EV business to secure a 11% - 15% shareholding in this business.

Jaguar Land Rover: Jaguar Land Rover has embarked on the "Reimagine" journey to embrace an "electric future" and transform into a digitally-savvy, modern luxury business delivering strong financial results.

During the year, we saw the successful global launch of the award-winning New Range Rover, while customer deliveries of the Land Rover Defender continued across 94 markets, with 107,208 units sold by the end of FY22.

The global shortage of semiconductors had a disproportionately adverse impact on Jaguar Land Rover's production and sales compared to our competitors.

Even though we took various steps to address the issue, the situation continues to remain challenging. This is a key issue facing Jaguar Land Rover and we are working assiduously to address the same during FY23. This should aid a gradual recovery in performance through the year.

The Company delivered a resilient performance during the year despite a fall in revenues by reducing its breakeven to 320,000 units. While production and sales remained significantly constrained, the business continued to see strong demand for its products, with global retail orders at record levels thanks to strong demand for Defender and New Range Rover.

Revenue fell 7% to ?18.3 billion, whilst the Company's EBIT margins fell to negative 0.4 %, with lower volumes impacting working capital in the first half of the financial year resulting in a free cash outflow of ?1.2 billion.

Retail sales declined 14% for the year.

Looking beyond the near-term challenges outlined above, Jaguar Land Rover is in a strong position with a portfolio of attractive premium luxury products, a healthy customer order bank, low break-evens, and the right future ready strategy to support its distinctive and renowned British brands in a rapidly changing legislative and commercial landscape.

Sustainability: Our roadmap to Net Zero

The shift to sustainable mobility is irreversible and the Tata Motors Group will be amongst the leaders of green mobility globally as we target Net Zero emissions (Scope 1, 2 and 3) by 2039 for Jaguar Land Rover 2040 for PVs and 2045 for CV and actions are already underway to deliver the same.

Jaguar Land Rover: The Jaguar brand will become fully electric by 2025 and Land Rover shall have 6 BEVs by 2026. 60% of Jaguar Land Rover's volumes will be pure BEV vehicles by 2030.

Passenger Vehicles: In India, EV penetration in our portfolio is likely to increase further to 25% in 5 years from 7.4% as of Q4 FY22. By 2025 Tata Motors will have 10 EVs. The unveil of the long range "Nexon EV Max", showcase of "CURVV" Electric SUV concept and the unveil of the "AVINYA" concept, a pure EV based on GEN3 architecture, show the exciting possibilities ahead of us.
