tata motors overview
Tata Motors Overview
  • Who is Tata?
    • Maker of passenger cars, buses, trucks and tractor-trailers
    • Largest Indian car manufacturer, maker of Tata Nano, which is the cheapest car in the world (priced at approximately $2,500)
    • Consolidated revenues of Rs.71 thousand crores (USD 14 billion) in 2008-09
    • Acquired the Jaguar and Land Rover brands from Ford for about $2.3 billion
  • What are Tata’s key strengths and weaknesses?
    • Strong position in its core Indian market
    • Strong R&D capability and industry leader in low-cost car design and production
    • Saddled with a large debt load from its recent acquisition (high debt-to-equity ratios vs. industry)
    • Lack of significant manufacturing base in any country outside India
  • Tata’s strategy and reasons for FDI
    • Two-tiered strategy of competing in the luxury cars segment (acquisition of Jaguar - Land Rover) and the low-cost cars segment
    • Expansion into global markets beyond the core Indian market.
    • Tata has already entered into distribution alliances and acquired

brands or manufacturing facilities in countries such as UK,

Spain and Thailand.

    • Planned introduction of NanoEuropa in Europe in 2012

      • Low labor costs $2.23 per hour

Romania vs. $2.75 for Tata motors

      • In EU (geographic advantage)
      • Immunity from tariffs (10% for firms producing outside of EU)
  • How could Tata take advantage?
    • Build a new auto plant in Romania
    • Manufacture cars in Romania and export to the EU

the overall picture
The Overall Picture
  • Unfavorable Business Considerations
    • Investment Scale Exceeds Current Capability:
      • Inability to purchase any existing auto production plants will force Tata to invest in a brand-new facility costing ~$600 million
      • Large debt load will makes it unfeasible to undertake such a large FDI at this point
    • Long Timeframe to Recoup Investment: NPV analysis reveals an unreasonably long-time frame of 12 years to recoup investment
    • Unproven Demand for Tata: While the overall European demand for low-cost cars is increasing, Tata’s brand is unproven in Europe
  • Recommendation
    • Although Romania remains a favorable political and macro-economic environment, analysis of business factors reveal a different picture
    • Recommendation is to NOT pursue FDI in Romania at this point until European demand solidifies and Tata finances improve
