Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 11 The groups flagship company, Bajaj Auto, is ranked as the world‟s largest two-and three-wheeler manufacturer and the Bajaj brand is well known in over a dozen countries in Europe, latin America, the US and Asia. Founded in 1926, at the height of India‟s movement for independence from the British, the group has an illustrious history. The integrity, dedication, resourcefulness and determination to succeed which are characteristic of the group today, are often traced back to its birth during those days of relentless devotion to a common cause. Jamnalal Bajaj, founder of the group, was a close confidant and discipline of Mahatma Gandhi. In fact, Gandhi has adopted him as his son. This close relationship and his deep involvement in the independence movement did not leave Jamalal Bajaj with much time to spend on his newly lunched business venture. His son, Kamalnayan Bajaj, then 27, took over the reins of business in 1942. He too was close to Gandhiji and it was only after independence in 1947, that he was able to give his full attention to the business. Kamalnayan Bajaj not only consolidated the group, but also diversified into various manufacturing activities. The present Chairman and managing Director of the group, Rahul Bajaj, took charge of the business in 1965. Under his leadership, the turn over of the Bajaj Auto the flagship company has gone up from Rs72 million to Rs46.16 (USD936 million), its product portfolio has expanded from one to and the brand has found a global market.

Bajaj Auto Ltd (BAL), the largest two and three wheeler manufacturer in the country, has a dominating 40% market share in scooters with 18.5% in un geared scooters, 25.2% in motor cycles, 53% in step-thrus, 8.3% in mopeds and a leading 78% market share in three- wheelers in FY2001. Bajaj Auto has been viewed as a scooter major but with the change in the structure of demand for 2-wheelers the company has tried to make its presence felt in this key market by steadily ramping up motorcycle capacities, by introducing new models and variants and pushing up marketing and sales. However the company is well behind Hero Honda in the motorcycle segment and No.2 player in mopeds/ scooterettes segment after TVS Suzuki. The company has a wide array of models both in the two-stroke and four-stroke configurations. In 1995 – 96 the sales were less than 90,000 motorcycles which was 8% of the total volume of its two- wheeler sales which has grown to 4,22,016 units in FY2001 accounting to 50% of its two- wheeler sales. However, with the implementation of the latest emission norms, it is slowly moving away from two-stroke vehicles and converting them to four-stroke ones. The company is all set to increase its margins to double – digits through concerted cost cutting, value engineering, gains from „ Total Productive Maintenance „ (TPM) and VRS. The Indian two-wheeler sector is characterized by largest volumes amongst all the segments in automobile industry. Though the segment can be broadly categorized into 3 sub- segments viz; scooters, motorcycles and mopeds; some categories introduced in the market are a combination of two or more segments e.g. scooterettes and step-thru‟s. The market primarily comprises five players in the two-wheeler segment with most of the companies having foreign collaborations with well-known Japanese firms earlier. But most of the companies are now planning 100% subsidiaries in India.
  14. 14. . Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 14 In the last four to five years, the two-wheeler market has witnessed a marked shift towards motorcycles at the expense of scooters. In the rural areas, consumers have come to prefer sturdier bikes to withstand the bad road conditions. In the process the share of motorcycle segment has grown from 48% to 58% , the share of scooters declined drastically from 33% to 25% , while that of mopeds declined by 2% from 19% to 17% during the year 2000-01.The Euro emission norms effective from April 2000 led to the existing players in the two- stroke segment to install catalytic converters. This has been replaced by 4-stroke motorcycles, which do not incur the additional cost of such converters and fierce competition led to a fall in price of certain models Bajaj Auto Ltd (BAL) has been viewed as a scooter major. Nevertheless, in the past five years the company recognized the important role of motorcycles in its portfolio. The scooter market is predominantly located in the Northern and Eastern India and the rationalization of sales taxes to a uniform rate of 12% pushed the price of scooters by 6-8% without offering any perceived value advantage to the customer. The company posted a total 2-wheeler sales of Rs1.05 mln in 2000-01 as against Rs1.24 mln in 1999-00 . The motorcycle sales contributed to almost 50% of the total sales volumes accompanied by the decline in geared scooter sales, which contributed, to only 33% of sales volumes. The company has been introducing models in the middle end Rs.36, 000 – Rs. 48,000 and high end segments viz; Rs. 48,000 and above but has found difficult to market such models in competition to Hero Honda models in the similar price category. However BAL is on its way to recapture the highly differentiated product market by becoming a flexible and market – driven supplier of various models of two and three wheelers at specific price – points.
  15. 15. . Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 15 Current Scenario BAL has performed fairly in the current fiscal 2001-02 with the Net Sales going up by 3.06% to Rs19720 mn HY ended September 2001 from Rs19133.3 mn in the corresponding period previous year. The total expenditure has gone up by 5.3% with the material cost accounting for the major increase. The company has posted a growth of 69% in PBT and the Net Profit has increased by 55% to Rs2644.7 mn from Rs1701.5 mn in the corresponding period last year. The Net Profit Margin has also improved by almost 50.7% from the half year ending FY2000-01 . The employee cost has fallen but the company will be charging an equal expenditure of Rs 22.6 mn over the three quarters of the current fiscal amounting to Rs 67.8 mn as the VRS expenditure incurred in June 2001 Business BAL in its 2-wheeler segment posted volume wise sales of 87.2% of its total sales of which scooters (both geared and ungeared) accounted for 42.3%, motorcycles for 34.9% and around 10% in step- thrus in FY2001. The sales of scooters have fallen by 26.1% from FY2000 but there has been a significant increase in the motorcycle sales by nearly 65.4% since FY2000. The three – wheeler sales have improved marginally in FY2001.The Company is targeting 25% market share in motor cycle‟s segment during the current fiscal as against 21% share it has cornered in FY2001. Scooters In the geared category BAL has „Chetak‟, 'Classic' and 'Super' in the old ones and the 'Legend', 'Bravo' among the newer models .The ungeared segment consists of the 60CC „ Sunny Spice „ , „Spirit „ , „ Fusion „ and the 92cc „Saffire „ . The‟ Legend NXT‟ is a 4 stroke geared scooter with a 9HP engine and the „Bravo‟ being a two-stroke 150cc
  16. 16. . Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 16 scooter with a catalytic converter designed in line with the emission norms. The company has launched utility versions of „Chetak „and „Super „at reduced prices. With the unprecedented 38% slump in scooter market the company faced a gradual market share loss to the other players like Kinetic Engineering and TVS Suzuki. Motorcycles BAL has two basic motorcycle products - M80, a 75cc indigenously developed low cost vehicle in the step-thru segment and Japanese motorcycles. BAL‟s motorcycles are positioned as four-stroke fuel-efficient vehicles. Among the Japanese ones, BAL has within its fold, the 100cc „4S-Champion‟, 125cc „KB 125‟, 111cc „Caliber‟ competing with Hero Honda‟s „ Passion „ and 100cc „Boxer‟ with a variant „ Boxer City „ in the pipeline, all of them at competitive prices. In FY2001 the company launched the new range of bikes viz; 175cc „Kawasaki Bajaj Eliminator „ the country‟s first cruiser motorcycle and the two variants viz; 180cc and 150cc „Pulsar „(in the high –end segment) These models were introduced mainly in competition to Hero Honda‟s 157cc CBZ and TVS Suzuki‟s Fiero. The company also launched in its 4- stroke bikes range 100cc „ Kawasaki Bajaj Acer‟ competing against Hero Honda Splendor and „ Aspire „, „Caliber Croma „, „ Legend NXT „ (in the middle end segment). Mopeds/Scooterettes BAL has a small market share of 9.5% in FY2000 in this segment. Among its models are the „Sunny Zip‟, „Rave‟ and the „Spirit‟. Its „Bajaj Sunny‟, a 50cc upgraded scooterette model has been extremely successful .The other models include 74cc „ Rave „launched in FY98 and „ Spirit „ 60cc, 2-stroke scooterette competing with leader TVS Suzuki‟s „Scooty‟.
  17. 17. . Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 17 Three wheelers BAL continues to dominate the three – wheeler market with over 73% market share and sales of 1,55,000 units in which have fallen from around 85% two years back. The company is trying to maintain its market share by creating environment-friendly vehicles and has already launched the CNG model in Delhi BAL also launched its 4- stroke rear engine CNG – auto rickshaw model in Mumbai during the year. It is testing the LPG model, which will take off as soon as the government regulations permit. Apart from this the company also plans to introduce a four-stroke version in auto-rickshaw and a goods carrier in both petrol and diesel versions. Exports BAL is keen to export motorcycles through Kawasaki‟s distribution network in Indonesia and Argentina wherein the company planned to sell through their network. The company‟s exports registered a marginal decline from Rs1378 mn to Rs1351 mn i.e. 2%. The exports consisted of 30,652 two and three – wheelers as against 32,730 (including CKD packs). Bangladesh, Egypt, Peru, Iran and Sudan performed consistently well with lower exports in Sri Lanka and Latin American markets. The total foreign exchange earned by the company was Rs. 1,391 million. As against Rs1430 million. Expansion The expansion at both Akurdi and Waluj plants has been completed during FY99 taking total capacity to 2mn vehicles. BAL has also set up a third manufacturing plant at Chakan near Pune with a capacity of 1mn vehicles. The company has planned for selling through separate channels in case of its 2-wheeler and 3-wheeler segment .It has been planning to streamline its vendor network by cutting down the number of suppliers by 50% from current 800 during the current fiscal, intended to improve the efficiency of its supply - chain management. BAL has been experimenting with higher dealer commissions on some models in a bid to loosen the stranglehold of market leader Hero Honda in the motorcycle segment. It introduced VRS II as a part of its man–power planning process at all its three plant locations as the company is slated to bring down the workforce to 10,000 over the next four years. The company also planned to commission a 20-MW capacity wind power plant
  18. 18. . Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 18 (fourth phase with the other three being set up near Satara) with an investment of Rs1000 mn in Ahmednagar district by entering into the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with MSEB during current fiscal to be completed. The company expects to source its current power requirements in-house and also avail of the benefit of sales tax incentives. BAL has also been exploring the possibility of an equity tie-up or a marketing alliance with a Chinese company for selling its three – wheelers in Chinese market. It has also been planning a technical collaboration on high-end scooters with the Italian 2-wheeler major „Aprilia. „The company has chalked out a strategy for co-existence with Kawasaki wherein BAL would concentrate on developing products in the price range of Rs 30,000 – 60,000 and Kawasaki to offer a wider choice of products priced from Rs. 35000 up to Rs. 2.5 lakh. Outlook Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Bajaj has countered competition through predatory price cuts; market expansions moves or take over threats. However both Honda and LML have cannibalized the BAL market share and are challenging its leadership. The company has remained less aggressive in its approach and idled away its cash reserves without proactively deploying them in R&D , new models , takeovers or other risky ventures . In order to arrest its declining market share, BAL has launched several new models during the past fiscal and more are in the offing in each segment of the two-wheeler market. Moreover, the management has recognized the need to utilize its surplus reserves for strengthening its presence in the market by way of launching new models, expanding capacity and penetrating new markets. Kawasaki has been developing India as an export hub for motorcycles between 50-200cc. The Company has invariably become the manufacturing base for Kawasaki and accounts for 60% of the latter‟s global sales. Though the company plans to introduce some high-tech motorcycles from the Kawasaki range, it is trying to shed- off its image of “screw- driver "company by developing its own range of motorcycles. The TVS – Suzuki break –up is expected to pave the way for a new relationship with BAL and the new Kawasaki – Suzuki alliance in the two-wheeler business. BAL needs to rediscover the spark of entrepreneurship that made it the market.
  19. 19. . Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 19 Financial analysis The Net Sales have declined by 2.3% to Rs30259 mn in FY2001 from Rs30973 mn in FY2000, which was 4.2% rise from FY99. The Operating profit has declined by 47.8% to Rs3052 mn in FY2001 from Rs5847 mn in FY2000 though the 65% rise in motorcycle volumes could not counter the margins arising out of 41% fall in geared scooters. BAL has spent a sizeable 13..05% advertising and there has been a 5.2% increase in the royalty payments from Rs593 mn to Rs624 mn in FY2001. The current ratio has fallen only marginally in FY2001 to 1.39% from 1.36% in FY2000 and there has been a marginal fall in the inventory levels, which contribute to about 11-12% of the current assets. There has not been a significant change in the inventory turnover, which has also remained close to 11.9% from FY2000 levels. The company has remained by and large debt-free and has the secured loans in the form of cash credit and working capital gap finance. The unsecured loans are mainly interest free and comprise Sales Tax Deferral Liability on account of incentives provided for the Waluj and Chakan plants as well as the wind power project. The Bank finance to Working Capital Gap is approximately 2% in FY2001 as against nil in FY2000 indicating the company‟s increased dependency on bank finance for working capital. However the overall secured loan level has fallen including the cash –credit limit which has fallen by around 55% in FY2001. The long-term debt to equity ratio has increased to 0.19 in FY2001 as against 0.15 in FY2000. This can be attributed to the decrease in the net worth due to the buyback of shares worth Rs18 mn in October 2000. The long-term debt to total assets has remained steady at 0.14 since FY2000, which is indicates that the 14% of the total assets are financed by debt sources. The Interest Coverage Ratio has fallen by 80% from FY2000 indicating that the EBIT as a percentage of interest charges has declined with the decreasing conservativeness and fall in the ability of the company to pay finance charges due to
  20. 20. . Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 20 decreased EBIT. The insignificant change in the Asset Turnover Ratio is indicative of the ability of the company to produce sales from the existing asset base. There has been a fall in both the Net Sales and the capital deployed in tandem with each other. Income from pre tax operations has fallen drastically by 55.2% to Rs3695 mn in FY2001 from Rs8252 mn in FY2000 as against 8.7% growth from FY99. However, cash profits have declined by 45.2% to Rs4272.4 mn in FY2001 from Rs7801.7 mn in FY2000 compared to 13% rise in FY2000 due to rise in depreciation cost. The Net Profit Margin has fallen to 8.29% in FY2001 from 20% in FY2000 on account of decline in PAT by 60 % to Rs2499.5 mn. The additional expenditure on VRS of Rs799 mn also affected the Net Profits. The ROCE has also fallen to 7.9% in FY2001 from 17.2% in FY2000 on account of decrease in net income and also the capital employed. Hence the company has been not been able to generate substantial profits in relation to sales and also in relation to assets. The Earning Power of the company has fallen to 10.9% in FY2001 from 23.7% in FY2000, which indicates the fall in operational efficiency. The investment portfolio as a percentage of capital employed was 37% and the market value of investments has been lower by Rs114 mn, which can further erode due to continued uncertainties in stock markets. The EPS has fallen by 58% and the dividend payout by 32% indicating that fall in percentage of total earnings paid out to shareholders in FY2001.
