The performance of Mahindra Finance with a 42% growth in consolidated revenues and a 32% increase in profits, and that of Mahindra Forgings with a 51% growth in consolidated revenue and a 241% profit growth (Q1 F2012 profit Rs. 18.2 crore, Q1 F2011 loss of Rs. 12.9 crore) were particularly noteworthy.
The global macro environment has deteriorated significantly in the last six months. The sharp rise in oil prices in the wake of political disturbances in the MENA region, the triple disasters that hit Japan in March, and the sovereign debt challenges facing Europe and the US, have cast a long shadow on growth prospects across the globe. In such a scenario, growth in emerging economies is witnessing moderation, as policy attention across the region has shifted from stimulating growth to containing inflation. India is no exception, in this regard. With headline inflation ranging above 9 per cent for much of the past year, the RBI has tightened its policy stance aggressively in recent months leading to a sharp rise in loan rates with inevitable adverse impacts on domestic demand and industrial growth. However, as prospects for agricultural and services sector growth remain reasonably robust, our business outlook for the year remains positive but watchful.
