These will contribute nearly 40% of the total business of the company, requiring the company to hire and train additional manpower (approx. 7000 people) upfront for successful launch of these programs.
Performance for the quarter includes impact of
- Higher operating costs due to lower production at OEMs on QoQ basis, leading to lower utilisation of added capacities
- Stablisation/ramp up phase of new models is in progress
- Inflationary pressures specially manpower inflation and strengthening of Japanese Yen
Teams performed well despite challenges like lower topline / higher costs and have improved sequential EBITDA. Actions to mitigate challenges are in place:
- Smooth ramp up at Bengaluru and Chennai facilities are in progress, expected to have optimum utilisation by Q1FY24 on the back of stable demand from OEMs
- Ongoing discussions with customers moving in positive direction for actualisation / realignment of cost
