Samvardhana Motherson International has announced robust financial results for the second quarter of the 2024 fiscal year. In Q2 FY24, the company recorded impressive revenue figures, totalling Rs 23,474 crore, representing a substantial year-on-year growth of 28 per cent. This strong performance was complemented by the company’s EBITDA, which reached Rs 2,001 crore, marking a remarkable 34 per cent increase. Profit-after-tax (PAT) also surged, growing by 39 percent to achieve Rs 451 crore in the last quarter.
One of the key highlights of the company’s performance was the significant growth in its order book. Over the past six months, the company witnessed an 11.43 percent increment in its order book, which now stands at an impressive Rs 64,130 crore. What’s particularly noteworthy is that more than 22 percent of the new orders received were related to components for electric vehicles, underlining the company’s commitment to serving the growing EV market. The company’s leadership attributed some of the production challenges to annual plant shutdowns in Europe during the summer holidays, exacerbated by local disruptions in Europe and America. However, they remain optimistic about their ability to adapt and overcome these challenges.
The company is actively investing in its future growth. The company is setting up ten new facilities in India to support the expansion of its automotive and non-automotive businesses. In addition, they completed four acquisitions during Q2 FY24, including SAS, Saddles, Rollon, and Ichikoh, as part of their strategic growth initiatives. Samvardhana Motherson International’s strong financial performance, expanding order book, and strategic investments demonstrate its commitment to remaining a key player in the automotive component industry, particularly in the rapidly growing electric vehicle segment.
