4.RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
5.CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATIONS
The report talks about the Indian automobile giant TATA Motors in particular. We have tried to track the path of TATA Motor’s expansion of international business in the recent past, at present as well as its future plans. We have also discussed the impact of current financial meltdown on the recent international ventures of the company.
The company is rapidly increasing its global footprint and is aiming to match the standards of international automobile manufacturers in next 3 to 5 years. This rise to the level of a world-class automotive manufacturer would involve a large quantifiable increase in revenues from outside India with a focus on certain foreign markets. Currently international business contributes 18.4%to company’s revenues. Company is aiming to increase it by 200% in near future to reduce its dependence on one single economy and one single business cycle. This ambition of the company has led to numerous joint ventures and increased activity in countries like the U.K., South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Brazil and Spain, as well as the company is listing on the NYSE.
With the recent acquisition of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) from the Ford Motor company in early2008, the company has entered into the world of high-end luxury brands. Customers of high-end luxury brands value image and exclusivity factors, while image and exclusivity conflict with the proposition of TML’s other recent venture, the inexpensive Nano. In this manner, the decision to compete in both the high-end luxury and low-end economy markets certainly creates a big and audacious task ahead for TML. If proven successful, this strategy would provide the company with high margin (JLR) as well as high volume (Nano) revenues. These two revenue streams, if proven compatible, could mitigate each other’s risks.
