What is important is not just the size of operating costs, but the cash flow-that is when money has to be paid out in relation to the stream of income arriving in. Thus cash flow management is of prime importance. Escorts Ltd. is the holding company of the Escorts Group. Post restructuring, agri - machinery or tractors have become the focus area of operations. Other business i.e. two- wheelers, IT, Telecom, construction equipment, are controlled through subsidiaries and joint venture. Post hive off of its pistons business to a joint venture with a foreign collaborator, Escorts is focusing on its ‘core competence’ of tractors. Escorts have strong hands in house engineering skills, a wide distribution/service network and brand franchise.
