In an interaction with ET Now earlier this month, Jhunjhunwala had said that he was confident of the company’s plans to become debt-free.

Separately, promoter Tata Sons also hiked its holdings in Tata Motors DVR to 7.14 per cent at the end of September from 5.26 per cent at the end of June.

“On a standalone basis, we expect ~5% YoY revenue growth driven by similar growth in overall volumes. EBITDA margin loss to come down to -1.2% on stable commodity, operating leverage benefit and cost control,” Nomura said in the note.
