Niranjan Gupta, Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Hero MotoCorp, said “Hero MotoCorp expects a build‐up in demand over the coming quarters as the economy continues to show recovery and improvement. Positive economic signs, encouraging farm activities and increased need for personal mobility is likely to restart the momentum in the two‐wheeler industry and we expect positive sentiments both in the rural and semi‐urban markets.
Commodity prices, which have been impacting the industry margins so far, are showing some signs of softening as we move from here. Through accelerated Leap‐II savings program, overheads management, and judicious price increases, we have been able to improve our margins sequentially and expect further recovery moving forward.
In keeping with its strategic vision ‐ Be The Future of Mobility’, Hero MotoCorp is steadily progressing on the path to carbon neutrality and sustainability and is investing in this transformation. The company is taking a comprehensive approach, ranging from research and development to production of green vehicles, which also includes forging strategic collaborations and partnerships”, he added.
