Hero MotoCorp’s profit surges 51% YoY to ₹1,073 crore in Q3 FY2025
Hero MotoCorp reported its financial performance for the third quarter of FY2025 between (October 1 and December 31, 2023). The world’s largest two-wheeler maker by volumes reported a 51 per cent year-on-year (YoY) growth in net profit for Q3 to ₹1,073.40 crore. The revenue from operations grew 21 per cent YoY to ₹9,724 crore during the same quarter. The Hero MotoCorp board recommended an interim dividend of ₹75 per share for the current financial year and a special dividend of ₹25 per share to mark the centennial year of Chairman Emeritus Brijmohan Lall Munjal. The board has fixed February 21 as the record date for determining eligible shareholders for the dividend payout.
Furthermore, Hero MotoCorp revealed that net profit rose 1.8 per cent and revenue increased by 3 per cent. Higher volumes backed strong year-on-year growth in revenue as the two-wheeler giant sold 14.6 lakh vehicles in the third quarter, a hike of 18 per cent over the same period last year. That said, volumes grew only 3 per cent sequentially, which restrained sequential growth in revenue.
