Tata Motors

...Tata Motors 1. Describe the economic characteristics of the global motor vehicle industry. The characteristics of the global motor vehicle industry are a boom in certain places and a bust in others all due to economic conditions in different nations. Four years after tow of Detroit Michigan’s big three went into bankruptcy American car makers are going “full throttle” with sales in August hitting an annual rate that if substantiated can take them back over 16 million and that is a rate that was last hit before the economic crisis and 80% higher than 2009 when GM and Chrysler went into bankruptcy. The opposite is happening in Europe being in its sixth year slump now and with a weak economy, high petroleum prices and an aging population being weighing factors on mass market car makers. This has led to cost cutting and over capacity for European car makers. This seems to be a trend worldwide as well as car makers are depending on there luxury brands to make them profitable. Tata has seen a profit due to Jaguar and Land Rover surging there net sales up 71% to 566 million dollars and raising revenues 31% to 568.82 billion rupees. This came dispute as the company said “a weak operating environment in the India business which was more than offset by increasing wholesale volumes and richer product and market mixes at JLR”. This is similar to Renault depending on Nissan and sales of cars produced in low cost factories in Romania to cover domestic losses. Mercedes and BMW are......

Challenges and Synergies in Tata Tetley Deal

...the Deal: Before we begin to understand as to how the deal was arrived at, it is important to look at the relevant challenges surrounding. We have broadly divided these challenges into two categories – External and Internal. External Challenges These are the challenges, that Tata Tea, and to some extent Tetley Tea were facing as far as the Tea Industry was concerned. • There was an increased level of competition, and it didn’t look like it was going to reduce anytime soon. Some of the African countries such as Kenya were fast increasing Tea Production, and exporting them. The quality of this tea was good enough to compete with the Premium that Indian Tea once commanded. • The consumption patterns were changing, and it was not good for both Tata Tea, and Tetley Tea. Russia had been a prominent importer of Indian Tea in the past, but steadily it had reduced its imports from India drastically. The Tea Consumption in UK, Ireland etc. had been reducing drastically. This was not good news for the British Giant Tetley Tea. Trends in Tea Consumption in developed countries were not encouraging wither. • Due to Supply-Demand disparity in favour of Supply (Supply being more than demand), the prices of Tea were falling globally. Even though India had around 30% share in the Tea Market around 1995, due to diversity available in the variants of Tea, it could not control the global Tea prices. Internal Challenges These are the challenges looked at from the point of view of Tata......

...TATA MOTORS FY 2014 Performance Overview: GLOBAL ECONOMY: The global economic situation showed signs of strengthening, with US economy speeding up, but the environment in the Euro zone remained weak with some early signs of improvement. GDP growth in China and India were low as compared to the high growth rates in the past. GLOBAL AUTO INDUSTRY: US, China and Europe The global auto industry recorded a surge in sales with impressive growth, with strong demand in the world’s top two automobile markets – China and the US.

Sales in China, the world’s largest auto market since 2009 crossed the 20 million cars mark. In Europe there were some early signs of recovery, but with high levels of unemployment, a clear turnaround was not visible. Consumer behaviour in that region remains cautious.

Jlr Cars

...use of any strategies that they have previously been using to remain successful and maximise the efficiency of their company as a whole A takeover would definitely aid the businesses involved given that the management styles of both can compliment each other in order to grow steadily to reach common aims and objectives either in the short term or long term run, Tata and Jaguar Land Rover are today one of the most successful takeover prospects with JLR having a massive turnaround in its performance compared with when it was under the Ford group company. This takeover is particularly successful as Tata motors aims to aid JLR in terms of providing finance for their operations and expansion without necessarily involving itself in the runnings of management to avoid any clashes as Tata is an indian based brand while JLR is of the UK so as to not discourage existing and potential customers from purchasing from the company as they might feel Tata will make changes to what they desire in their products. This would retain JLR's customer satisfaction therefore upholding the brand image and reputation. The Tata and JLR takeover is also a good one as they are both in related markets of cars which would have made it easier to manage and invest appropriately in to make the profits it is now, similarly so with the Kraft foods and Cadbury takeover. Kraft bought cadbury for a huge amount of money which most investors did not see as a profitable decision some more strongly than others......
