Outlook

India
The growth trajectory in the Indian auto industry continued to follow an upward trend in Q2FY12. Compared to Q2FY11, passenger cars & UV production grew by 9%, LCVs by 35% and M/HCVs by 13%. There is expected to be a slowdown of growth rates in FY12 in passenger cars to ~ 8%, in UVs to 10 -12%, in LCVs to 20–23% and in MHCVs to 6-8%.

Europe
Production of heavy trucks (relevant segment for MFL Europe) recovered in FY11 to ~60-65% of levels existing before the financial crisis experienced in FY09 and FY10. Data on heavy truck registration for Jan-Sep’11 suggest that the growth trajectory will be maintained in calendar year 2011 - registrations in the 9 months of 2011 increased by ~20% over the corresponding period in 2010.

"Our vision is to be one of the world’s leading forging companies with an ‘art to part’, or design to delivery competence that leverages the strong engineering DNA of its parent Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M), benefits from the latter as an anchor customer while being free to offer products to M&M and its competitors. The key elements of our strategy remain unchanged to what we reported last year - 'reboot' (reduce costs), 'reinvent' (move up the value chain), and 'reignite' (pursue growth). The company has made considerable progress towards implementation of the strategy." the company said in a statement after the  Board of Directors of Mahindra Forgings Limited (MFL) announced the unaudited financial results for the quarter ended 30th September, 2011 at its meeting held today.

"The company has adopted a strong and proactive strategy that is focused on exploiting the growth opportunity in India, consolidating profitability in Europe and exploiting synergies between India and Europe. Furthermore, MFL continually seeks synergies with other companies in the M&M Systech sector fold as well as M&M itself. Such an integrated approach gives us a unique edge in the market place"
