Its revenue rose to 21,470 crore in the second quarter when compared to 19,227 crore in the second quarter of last fiscal. “Our strong show in the auto and farm sectors was complemented well by the improved performance in the group companies," said the company's Managing Director and CEO, Anish Shah.

Shah also noted that the company's investments in digital platforms have yielded well. “(They) present a meaningful opportunity to create and unlock value," he said. Further, Mahindra's Chief Financial Officer, Manoj Bhat, noted that though commodity prices have impacted the margins, the company's focus on cost management has helped mitigate some of the impact.
