Company has decided to sale its stake in a joint venture with a Korean company SsangYong Motors Co. Company was incurring losses from this JV to the tune of INR 2500 crore and this JV was also a burden on company’s balance sheet. Decision to exit from loss making business will result in cost saving and make its balance sheet stronger.

M&M had planned a partnership with Ford Motor Co. for engine and vehicle development. However both the companies have mutually and amicably called off this partnership. This is mainly due to the global disruptions bought by COVID-19. M&M plans on conserving cash for investment in emerging technologies and increase focus on its automobile business.
