Strengths of Tata Motors:

Edelweiss expects demand in some of Tata Motors’ key markets to normalize, as we believe the worst is behind. In addition, tight cost control should also boost profitability. Edelweiss remains positive on JLR’s upcoming product pipeline, which will improve the mix in favor of the more profitable Land Rover brand.

Edelweiss believes the investment cycle has reached its peak, as such the reduction in capital spending should help JLR’s FCF profile as well. For the India activity, after two years of slowdown, we expect a gradual recovery in volumes. This, coupled with a strong focus on costs, should help boost profitability. The improvement in Tata Motors’ balance sheet continues to surprise positively. It is important to note that in standalone mode and in India, cash benefits continue to outweigh capital expenditures; therefore, FCF’s production is not motivated solely by better working capital.

Tata Motors Management has indicated that the generation of FCF remains the central focus. Edelweiss believes the FY22 forecast for JLR (4% EBIT and neutral FCF) is ultra conservative taking into account the short-term uncertainty (semiconductor shortage and commodity inflation). A 100,000-unit backlog for Defender, a tight leash on capital spending and the launch of RR over the next 12 months remain the main drivers.

Main risks for Tata Motors:

Macro risks (Brexit, Trade wars)
Increased competitive intensity, especially in the EV / autonomous driving space
A prolonged slowdown.
