The Operating Margin for the quarter is 15.03% as compared to 14.35% in Q1 F2010.

Its dominant position in utility vehicles segment continues with a market share of 59.4%. The company sold 53,948 utility vehicles in the quarter as against 48,720 utility vehicles in Q1 F2010, thus recording a volume growth of 11%.
All products of the company, viz. Bolero, Scorpio, Xylo and the Pick Ups performed well during the quarter. The company exported 3125 vehicles during the quarter as against 1145 nos. in Q1 last year – an impressive growth of 173%.

Consolidated Results
The Gross Revenues and Other Income for Q/E 30th June 2010 grew by 9.4 % to Rs. 8,576.2 crores (USD 1.8 billion) from Rs.7,841.4 crores (USD 1.7 billion) in last year. The consolidated group profit for the year after exceptional items, prior-period adjustments and tax and after deducting minority interests is Rs.620.8 crores (USD 132.9 million) as compared to Rs.431.9 crores (USD 92.5 million) earned in the previous year - a growth of 43.7%.
In March 2010, with AT&T exercising its stock options, Tech Mahindra Ltd (TML) and its subsidiaries ceased to be group subsidiaries and became Joint Ventures of the Company. As a result of this change, the financials of TML Group from Q1 F2011 instead of being consolidated 100% are, as required by Accounting Standard AS 27, consolidated only in proportion to the Company’s shareholding in TML.
Hence the Group Revenues are not comparable with that of the previous years. On a comparable basis the Gross revenues and Other Income of the Group for the current quarter is Rs 9218.7 crores (US$ 2.0 billion) – a growth of 17.6% over Q1 last year.

The performance of Mahindra Finance with a 23% growth in consolidated revenues and an 86% increase in profits, and that of Mahindra Lifespaces with a 41% growth in revenues and a 39% profit growth, deserve special mention.

Sept.11 : M&M  is working on smaller fuel-efficient petrol engines to power its future growth in  overseas markets and reduce its current dependence on diesel-enabled engines and offer new engine options.
With the help of AVL of Austria, a consulting and powertrain systems development company, it is developing petrol engines with capacity of less than 2 litre for the petrol range.
Smaller fuel-efficient petrol engines are much sought after in markets like the US, Europe, west Asia and Africa. Tighter global emission norms and high fuel costs have compelled many automotive companies to go for smaller engines and smaller vehicles.
M&M is developing new models, including a mini Xylo, which could require petrol engines for particular markets. It has also developed a diesel-driven, pick-up version of the Scorpio for the US market, but may explore a petrol engine for it, too.
In line with global average, it spends 2.5-3 per cent of its turnover on R&D every year. Mahindra had earlier converted a 2.2-litre diesel engine into a petrol one for its Scorpio. The model, a turbo-charged variant, however, caters only to the export market and is not sold in India.

Sept.02 : M&M wants to launch a passenger vehicle variant under the Maxximo platform over the next 12 months and  has already invested close to Rs 300 crore on this at the Chakan plant. M&M is trying to ramp up their production facility by end of next month from about 2,000 vehicles per month to 3,000 units.
SEP, 01 : M&M has signed the MOU for acquisition of Korean car and sports utility vehicle maker SsangYong making it the latest of its several acquisitions in the last decade.

M&M’s success in M&A is to be seen in integrating all merged companies into its culture smoothly.
Aug .30 : (PTI) : M&M has decided to separate the agri business of its subsidiary Mahindra Shubhlabh Services and merge it into itself. MSSL  has been into seeds, fertilisers, chemicals and farm finance among others, and  exports of fresh fruits. M&M wants special focus on fresh fruits exports.
MSSL provides a one-stop channel to farmers for products, services, knowledge and information. It works on various aspects of agriculture such as seeds, fertilizers, chemicals and farm finance among others.
Aug :26: The government today said it is scouting for a joint venture partner for ailing Scooters India Ltd, which used to manufacture the classic Lambretta model, and is being eyed by Mahindra & Mahindra among others. Generally the policy is such that the majority stake remains with the government.
Aug.20: (PTI) : M&M today said it has received environmental clearance from the US authorities for its diesel pick-up trucks, a step which could bring it closer to launching the vehicle there. M&M said it is the first Indian automobile manufacturer to receive a Light Duty Diesel Federal Tier-2 BIN-5 & OBD II Compliance Certificate, which was granted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the USA on August 17, 2010. "With this certification, Mahindra has joined a select group of global automobile manufacturers who have received this certification for a diesel-powered light duty vehicle (LDVs)," the company said in a statement. The company had planned to launch its diesel pick-up in the US by the end of 2009, but has missed two deadlines since, due to regulatory issues. It has now set 2010-end as the possible time for launching the vehicle in the US
M&M has produced excellent results for Q1 FY 2011. It’s Indian and foreign operations are moving up the ladder well. As of now, it appears that MM can pull off a big success in SsangYong, which is its latest acquisition, as the Auto market all over the world is quite on the up move.
However, it does seem to be in a big hurry to become a world class multinational in Auto Industry. It has also entered almost all segments of auto Industry. With a reasonably good Brand Name and technology, and considering the current boom times, it has good scope to succeed in world markets.
Current and Next q’ly results could be much better than last q’ly results – judging from August sales and current auto sector boom conditions.
