Stocks in focus on 13 May, Friday

Tata Motors: Tata Motors reported a consolidated net loss of Rs 1,032 crore for the quarter ended March as against a consolidated net loss of Rs 7,605 crore in the year-ago quarter. The company reported an 11.5% on-year decline in consolidated revenue from operations to Rs 78,439 crore for the reported quarter. The weakness in the performance of the company was largely down to subsidiary Jaguar Land Rover, whose revenues in the reported quarter nosedived 27.1% on-year to 4.8 billion pound sterling. The weakness in the revenues of JLR was down to the company’s inability to secure semi-conductors to ramp up production while disruption in the European and China business also weighed.

Larsen & Toubro (L&T): India’s largest infrastructure company Larsen & Toubro (L&T) on May 12 reported a 10% on-year rise in consolidated net profit at Rs 3,621 crore, which was below analysts’ expectations. The infrastructure giant’s consolidated revenue from operations rose 10% on-year to Rs 52,851 crore for the reported quarter, missing expectations. The company said it has bagged orders worth Rs 73,941 crore during the quarter ended March 2022, a growth of 46% over the corresponding quarter of last fiscal, with international orders contributing 44% of the total order inflow. The company secured nearly Rs 1.93 lakh crore worth orders at the group level during the year, which grew by 10% over the previous year.

Future Group: Future Group promoter Kishore Biyani’s daughter Ashni Biyani has resigned as managing director of Future Consumer, citing personal reasons, while she will continue to serve on the board as a non-executive director. Biyani has resigned due to personal constraints and challenges, due to which she is unable to dedicate necessary time and attention to the affairs of the company, Future Consumer said in a regulatory update. Ashni Biyani’s resignation follows that of Rakesh Biyani, who resigned as managing director of another group company Future Retail a week ago. Along with Rakesh Biyani, other officials, including the company secretary, had also tendered their resignations.

Bharti Airtel: Bharti Airtel added the maximum number of subscribers in March at 2.25 million, followed by Reliance Jio, which added 1.26 million subscribers.

Vodafone Idea continues to lose subscribers with a decline of 2.81 million in March.

Reliance Industries (RIL): Market regulator SEBI and Reliance Industries (RIL) on Thursday strongly countered each other in the Supreme Court as they sought remedy in a case concerning alleged irregularities by the latter in connection with acquisition of its own shares between 1994 and 2000. RIL wants SEBI to share certain documents that it thinks will exonerate it and its 108 promoters in the case. The company believes that these documents would negate the allegations of wrongdoing in the acquisition of shares and this would have a vital bearing on the criminal case being filed by SEBI.
