When Hyundai Motor Company entered the Indian Automobile Market in 1996 the
Hyundai brand was almost unknown throughout India. HMIL's first car, the Hyundai
Santro was launched in 23 September 1998 and was a runaway success.
Within a few months of its inception HMIL became the second largest automobile
manufacturer and the largest automobile exporter in India.

WEAKNESS

changes in prices of inputs such as steel, aluminum, plastics and rubber, which go
into the production of automobiles. In order to mitigate these risks, the company
continues to attempts to enter into long term contracts based on its projections of
prices.
Exchange Rate Risk: The Company is exposed to the risks associated with
fluctuations in foreign exchange rates mainly of import of components & raw
materials and export
