M&M Q4 Results Preview

Domestic brokerage firm Prabhudas Lilladher estimates that M&M's revenue/EBITDA/net profit is likely to grow at a CAGR of 11.7 per cent/17 per cent/13.4 per cent respectively in the March quarter. M&M has emerged as one of the top auto picks for the brokerage along with Maruti Suzuki. 

The Mahindra Group company's overall auto sales including exports for the month of April 2024 grew 13 per cent to 70,471 vehicles. M&M said its utility vehicles segment saw a growth of 18 per cent, having sold 41,008 vehicles in the domestic market. The domestic sales for commercial vehicles stood at 22,102, it said.

At the same time, Mahindra’s farm equipment sector sold 35,805 units in India in April 2024, as against 35,398 units in the same period last year. Total tractor sales during April 2024 increased to 37,039 units, as against 36,405 units for the same period last year. Exports for the month stood at 1,234 units, registering a growth of 23 per cent over last year, said M&M.

‘’M&M's revenue is expected to grow by 8.1 per cent year-on-year (YoY) which will be largely driven by 13.8 per cent volume growth in the automotive divison and partially offset by decline in FES segment. Decline in tractor volume should offset RM cost benefit leading to flattish EBITDA margin,'' said the brokerage.
