JLR tie-up with BMW, directionally correct… Valuation & Outlook: JLR witnessed demand concerns starting June 2018 amid uncertainty over Brexit, tariff barriers in China, a general auto slowdown in China among others. This led to a decline in sales, which continued until April 2019. Going forward, as the base effect kicks in from June 2019, we expect its performance to normalise from here on amid conscious efforts to reduce cash costs, improve brand perception, control working capital cycle and capex outgo. However, we await positive commentary from JLR on volume as well as cash costs savings perspective before any meaningful change in our stance. However, the present collaboration mitigates risks over cash flow burn at JLR on upcoming technologies over a longer timeframe. We stick to our HOLD rating on the stock with a target price of | 185.
