TVS Motor Company said Thursday consolidated net profit for the second quarter jumped 29% thanks to higher sales even though rising commodity costs and a chip shortage caused concern.

Net profit for the July-September quarter rose to Rs 234.37 crore from Rs 181.41 crore a year earlier, the maker of Apache bikes said.

Consolidated revenue climbed 22% to Rs 5,619 crore in the second quarter as against Rs 4,605 crore in the corresponding period of 2020-21.

The company said it posted its highest-ever EBITDA of Rs 562 crore during the quarter, as against Rs 430 crore a year earlier, despite various challenges in terms of increase in commodity costs, scarcity of containers for international business and shortage in semiconductors through significant cost reduction initiatives and growth in revenue.

The company’s cost of materials consumed jumped Rs 4,406.27 crore from Rs 3,648.28 crore a year earlier. It also said that a focus on working capital management and improved operating performance helped it to generate operating free cash flow of Rs 1,090 crore during the quarter.

TVS Motor competes with the likes of larger rivals Bajaj Auto and Hero MotoCorp as well as the local units of Japan’s Honda and Yamaha. The company’s shares have climbed 18.4% year to date even after falling 13% since touching a one-year high of Rs 665.70 apiece in May this year. The shares ended 0.44% down at Rs 576.55 apiece on Thursday.
