The Indian automobile industry is riding high, like never before. They say that history has an eerie habit of repeating itself. As far as the automobile industry is concerned, the monumental returns and the off-thecharts growth rates reported in India recently bear testimony to this adage. The events that unfolded in Detroit years ago seem to be repeating themselves today, in India. For the automobile industry, future in India seems like an evergreen pasture! Overview of the Indian Automobile Industry Starting its journey from the day when the first car rolled on the streets of Mumbai in 1898, the Indian automobile industry has demonstrated a phenomenal growth to this day. Today, the Indian automobile industry presents a galaxy of varieties and models meeting all possible expectations and globally established industry standards. Some of the leading names echoing in the Indian automobile industry include Maruti Suzuki, Tata Motors, Mahindra and Mahindra, Hyundai Motors, Hero Honda and Hindustan Motors in addition to a number of others. During the early stages of its development, Indian automobile industry heavily depended on foreign technologies. However, over the years, the manufacturers in India have started using their own technology evolved in the native soil. The thriving market place in the country has attracted a number of automobile manufacturers including some of the reputed global leaders to set their foot in the soil looking forward to enhance their profile and prospects to new heights. Following a temporary setback on account of the global economic recession, the Indian automobile market has once again picked up a remarkable momentum witnessing a buoyant sale for the first time in its history in the month of September 2009. After the economic downturn and difficult market conditions in the automotive sector globally in 2008-09, during the year, economies across the world (with a few exceptions) showed signs of recovery and growth. The Indian economy bounced back quickly and strongly growing at 7.2% in 2009-10. The automotive sector in India started the year steadily, gathered momentum in different segments in the second half of the year and ended the year with a record growth and performance. The automobile sector of India is the seventh largest in the world. In a year, the country manufactures about 2.6 million cars making up an identifiable chunk in the worlds annual production of about 73 million cars in a year. The country is the largest manufacturer of motorcycles and the fifth largest producer of commercial vehicles. Industry experts have visualized an unbelievably huge increase in these figures over the immediate future. The figures published by the Asia Economic Institute indicate that the Indian automobile sector is set to emerge as the global leader by 2012. In the year 2009, India rose to be the fourth largest exporter of automobiles following Japan, South Korea and Thailand. Experts state that in the year 2050, India will top the car volumes of all the nations of the world with about 611 million cars running on its roads. Scope of this study Through this project we are attempting to study the capital financial aspects of 3 of the highly profitable Indian automotive companies. They are: Maruti Suzuki India Limited Tata Motors Limited Mahindra & Mahindra Limited

We have analyzed data including the long term and short term debts, debt-equity ratio, earnings per share, profit before tax etc. We have also graphically represented the data. For the study data for the last 5 years have been used (2006 2010). Data was gathered from the balance sheets, annual reports, chairmans report, profit & loss account etc. of the respective companies. We performed regression analysis between Dividend payout Ratio (DPR), as a Dependent Variable and Net Sales, PAT, Market Capitalization, Cash and Capital Expenditure as Independent Variable

Maruti Suzuki, the leader in the passenger car segment has seen volatility in the mix of debt and equity capital of company over the last 5 years. Sales of the company have increased continuously during the last decade. Its effect can be seen from the rise in Profit before Interest and Tax Margin (PBT). There is a fall in PBT in the last year because of a rise in operating expense of the company. Most of the funding requirements of the company were done by the internal accruals which were created through continuous profits. Maruti Suzuki will maintain its strong business and financial risk profiles on the back of the healthy cash generation and good liquidity. The company is expected to sustain its dominant position in the domestic passenger car segment, given its large product portfolio. Marutis financial risk profile is an also expected to remain comfortable, with incremental capital expenditure being funded entirely through internal sources. Though the company has a history of dependence on the internal funds, it has capability of raising debt if required for funding. Seeing to its good debt equity, there is a chance for the company to acquire debt for funds required for investment opportunity. Interest coverage ratio is also to be paid on borrowed amount.

Here DPR has negative relationship with 3 of the 5 variables taken which are Net sales, Market Capitalization and Capital expenses and has positive relationship with rest two variables that are PAT and Cash available to the firm. But here we can see that the coefficients are very small and the factors are less significant. PAT is somewhat significant which changes DPR by .024% if changed by 1%. From the graph we can conclude that DPS for the company changes with EPS for it, as EPS raises DPS rises and vice-versa. Though the change in DPS is very minor and relatively if we see then it is almost constant, it follows EPS pattern. Over past 15 years, EPS has reduced at a CAGR of around 10%, and also the pay-out ratio remains almost constant between 5% and 10%. From 2000 to 2004, it first becomes zero and then touches highest value of around 40% and then again comes back to 8% level. Except for these 4 years, it remains constant for the rest of the years.

Tata Motors Limited

Market Capitalisation: 78185.92 Crores Tata Motors Ltd is a multinational automotive corporation headquartered in Mumbai, India. The Company continues to be amongst the top three players in the passenger vehicle market which has over 25 players. Tata Motors has products in the compact, midsize car and utility vehicle segments. The company is the world's fourth largest truck manufacturer, the world's second largest bus manufacturer, and employs 24,000 workers. Analysis The Company recorded a sale of 633,862 vehicles in 2009-10, a growth of 34% over previous year (472,885 vehicles) in the domestic market in India, representing a 25.5% share in the industry (improving from 24.4% share in the previous year).The Tata Motors Group turnover was Rs.95, 567 crores, a growth of 29% over previous year contributed mainly by market recovery, improved realization and successful launch of new products. Consolidated Profit before Tax was Rs.3, 523 crores (Loss of Rs.2, 129 crores in 2008-09) and Consolidated Profit for the year was Rs.2, 571 crores (Loss of Rs.2, 505 crores in 2008-09). The Profit before Tax of Rs.2, 830 crores and Profit after Tax of Rs.2, 240 crores also grew significantly over the previous year by 179.1% and 123.7% respectively. The borrowings of the Company as on March 31, 2010 stood at Rs.16, 625.91 crores (previous year Rs.13, 165.56 crores). The key highlights were: - In 2009-10, the Company raised Rs.4, 200 crores from the issue of Secured, Rated, Credit Enhanced, Listed,

2% Coupon Non-Convertible Debentures (NCDs) with premium on redemption and Rs.200 crores from the issue of 9.95% Secured NCDs.

In a challenging financial market environment, the Company successfully rolled over in May 2009, the bridge finance it had obtained for acquisition of the Jaguar Land Rover business for a period of 18 months, till December 2010. Subsequently, the Company was able to prepay this loan facility in October 2009 from certain divestments, improved cash generation from operations and also through fund raised, US$ 375 million from the issue of Global Depository Receipts and US$ 375 million from issue of Foreign Currency Convertible Notes. The Company will further consider suitable steps to de-leverage and hence de-risk the balance sheet from volatility and has also taken and will continue to implement suitable steps for raising long term resources to match the Companys fund requirement and to optimize its loan maturity profile. In the Last 5 years the debt equity ratio of Tata Motors is has remained around 0.8 which is near to the industry average of debt to equity. Company has been making huge amount of profits and thus have sufficient surplus and reserves for funding the requirements of the company. Major proportion of the liquidity requirement of the company is met internally with the accumulated reserves and surplus. With a good interest coverage ratio in last 4 years except for the year ended on March 2009, company has been able to raise the debt easily from the market. There has been significant rise in the debt during the year 2008 because of TATA-Jaguar dealers of the company was around 52 at the end of the year March 2008 when the Debt-to-equity ratio was 0.7. EPS has decreased during the last year because of fall in sales and also the equity capital has increased with the right issue. During last year company has also raised fund through issue of debentures. Company is not in a healthy position to raise debt from the company because currently the interest coverage ratio is less than 2 which means that company has higher proportion of its profit to be distributed as interest.

It can again be seen that the influence of Cash and cash Equivalents, Market Capitalization and Capital Expenditure is negative and is also very insignificant. And the Net Sales also impact negatively with a very minute coefficient of 0.002. There is a positive correlation between PAT and DPR, the coefficient of 0.02 implies that a 1% change in Pat would lead to 0.02% change in DPR, both negatively and positively.

TATA Motors
60 50 40 30 20 10 0 DPS EPS

For TATA Motors, if we look at EPS and DPS figures, from the graph we can get that the DPS follows EPS. If EPS increases, company increases the DPS offered to the shareholders. Though the increase is very small but still it is clearly visible. Moreover if the EPS falls then DPS also falls. We can see from the graph that there are very high fluctuations in the EPS for the company though over years it has after fluctuation come again to same level it was in 1995,with a minute fall at -1.41% CAGR. But as a consequence, dividend pay-out also shows very wide variations in the value over the years between 0% to around 110%. The average pay-out ratio for the company over the years has been around 38%. It can also be inferred that The Company pays same proportion of EPS as Dividends or it follows a Hybrid policy of fixed proportion as dividend with extra dividend in case of increasing profits.

Here out of the five factors that we have taken, PAT and cash available to the firm are the factors which are negatively related to DPR and other factors, net sales, market capitalization and capital expenditure are the parameters which are having positive relationship with DPR. Also among these five parameters, Net sales, PAT and Market capitalization are the significant factors which really impact the DPR and rest two factors are relatively less significant. By changing Net sales, PAT and Market capitalization by 1%,

change in DPR is .014%, -.21% and .006% respectively. Rest two factors are relatively less significant according to their p-values.

For this company, the dividend has been constant till the year 2003, after that from 2003 to 2009; it has grown a bit but that growth is also very small so relatively we can assume the company to be a constant dividend company. The EPS for the company increases gradually, except a downfall in the year 2000-01 due to global recession. Otherwise it shows increasing trend. Due to this relatively stable EPS, it also has stable DPR. It remains within a specified limit of 25% to 35% over the past 15 years except for two three years during 2000-01 in which global meltdown affects the world markets. During that period, DPR goes up to 55% from 30%. If we talk about EPS, in the past 15 years, it increases at a CAGR of around 3% and its average pay-out for 15 years comes out to be roughly 32%.
