      Maruti Suzuki financials for 2008-09
    Total Income up 14.28 per cent; Premium compacts and sedan segment drive topline growth
    New Delhi, April 24, 2009
    India's number one carmaker Maruti Suzuki India Limited today announced its financial results for the quarter ending March 31, 2009 and for the full year 2008-09.

    Fiscal 2008-09

    The company's Total Income (Net of Excise) (Income from Operations plus Other Income) for the financial year 2008-09 climbed to Rs 21,453.8 Crore. This is the highest Total Income (Net of Excise) ever in the company's history, and marks a growth of 14.28 per cent over 2007-08. The growth in Total Income (Net of Excise) included higher realisations, largely contributed by the company's popular hatch-back Swift and premium sedan Swift Dzire (Diesel and Petrol variants).
    Net Profit during the year stood at Rs 1,218.7 Crore, down 29.6 per cent over 2007-08. The company's EBDITA for the year stood at Rs 2,433.4 Crore, a fall of about 22 per cent over the previous year.

    During the year, commodity prices went up sharply and remained high for most part of the year. Forex fluctuations were also adverse and impacted the bottomline significantly.

    In recent months, commodity prices have eased.

    With regard to foreign currency exposure, the company's exports in 2009-10 are expected to be higher and cover its imports.
