It reported a 6 per cent increase in its revenue at ₹4,617 crore in Q2 of this fiscal as against ₹4,353 crore in the year-ago quarter.

Strong focus on cost reduction initiatives helped the company to improve EBITDA for the quarter to 9.3 per cent compared to 8.8 per cent during Q2 of 2019-20, according to a statement.

Despite Covid-19 challenges, the company strengthened its supply chain during second quarter of 2020-21. The production and sales improved consistently from July 2020 onwards.

Total two-wheeler sales of 8.34 lakh units for the quarter was almost in line with last year second quarter number of 8.42 lakh units. Two-wheeler exports grew by about 8 per cent compared to Q2 of last year.

“TVS delivered strong performance in Q2 FY21. Healthy operating margins and higher non-operating income boosted the bottomline. We expect improvement in two-wheeler industry would continue despite near term hiccups. Domestic industry would witness sequential as well as y-o-y improvement in the second half of this fiscal with decent bounce back,” said Mitul Shah, Head of Research at Reliance Securities.
