Bajaj Auto Q3: Net profit rose 15% to ₹1,262 crore

Bajaj Auto today reported a better-than-expected 15% jump in net profit for the quarter ended December 31, driven by an improved operating margin. Net profit rose to 1,262 crore as compared to 1,102 crore in the same quarter of the previous year. Revenue from operations rose 3% to 7,640 crore.

Operating margin improved sequentially by 150 bps from 16.9% in Q2 of FY20 to 18.4% in Q3 of FY20. This improvement was largely driven by reduction in cost of material, increase in prices and forex gains.
