The company’s sales are turning into cashflows, but due to substantial depreciation and amortization expenses and accounting adjustment on the JLR division, the company has reported a substantial net loss. The highest quarterly loss reported by the company. The diminishing sales in the Chinese market and huge consolidated loss with negative FCFF created intense selling pressure for the stock.
Automobile company requires huge initial capital investment, so the books of accounts show significant depreciation. We have measured the industry by EV/EBITDA as it measures the return a company generates its investment and strips out the effect of fixed costs like depreciation and interest. Consequently, we came around the valuation that the company has an attractive price.
