- The company's revenue grew by 17% during the third quarter of the current financial year to ₹8,910 crore.
- The Rajiv Bajaj-led company beat market expectations and reported an EBITDA margin increase of 1.4%.
For the first time in the history of 75 years, its turnover breached the ₹9,000 crore mark, while it also recorded the highest ever profit-after-tax of ₹1,556 crore.
The Rajiv Bajaj-led company beat market expectations and reported an EBITDA margin increase of 1.4%, driven by higher operating leverage and better product mix.
Even while its three-wheeler market continues to stay under pressure, Bajaj’s overall sales were up by 9% on a yearly basis. The jump in Bajaj’s revenue is all thanks to the high sales of its signature two-wheelers – Pulsar and Boxer.
