Forward-looking statements contain risks
The supplemental information regarding the Jaguar Land Rover business of Tata Motors Limited (TML) constituting Exhibit 1 to this Form 6-K, contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Such forward-looking statements may include, without limitation, statements relating to TMLs operating strategies, future plans, management goals, mergers and acquisitions and other matters; its competitive positions; its reorganization plans; its capital expenditure plans; its future business conditions and financial results; its cash flows; its dividends; its financing plans; the future growth of market demand of, and opportunities for, TMLs new and existing products; and future regulatory and other developments in the global automotive industry.
The words anticipate, believe, could, estimate, intend, may, seek, will and similar expressions, as they relate to TML, are intended to identify certain of these forward-looking statements. TML does not intend to update any forward-looking statement.
These forward-looking statements are, by their nature, subject to significant risks and uncertainties. In addition, these forward-looking statements reflect the current views of TML with respect to future events and do not guarantee the future performance of TML. Actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors, including, without limitation:
changes in the regulatory regime and significant policies for the automotive industry;
the level of demand for automobiles;
competitive forces, including pricing pressures, and TMLs ability to retain market share in the face of competition from existing automotive companies and potential new market entrants;
the availability, terms and deployment of capital, and the impact of regulatory and competitive developments on capital outlays;
changes in the assumptions upon which TML has prepared its projected financial information and capital expenditure plans; and
changes in the effects of competition on the demand and price of TMLs products.
Financial Statements and Other Financial Information
The audited consolidated financial information included herein as at and for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2010, 2011 and 2012 has been prepared in accordance with IFRS. Certain (unaudited) comparative information has been derived from the audited non-statutory consolidated financial statements as at and for the year ended March 31, 2010 (the 2010 Consolidated Financial Statements) of Jaguar Land Rover PLC (now, Jaguar Land Rover Automotive plc) and its subsidiaries (collectively, JLR) and presented herein in a manner that is consistent with the IFRS financial statements of TML. These changes have not been applied retrospectively to the 2010 Consolidated Financial Statements and are therefore unaudited. The unaudited, condensed consolidated interim financial information as at and for the six months ended September 30, 2011 and 2012 has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34, including, in each case, interpretations of the International Financial Reporting Committee. You should consult your own professional advisers for an understanding of the differences between IFRS, IAS 34 and US GAAP and how those differences could affect the financial information contained in this Report. There are a number of differences between IFRS and US GAAP. TML has not prepared financial statements in accordance with US GAAP or reconciled its financial statements to US GAAP and is therefore unable to identify or quantify the differences that may impact TMLs reported profits, financial position or cash flows were they to be reported under US GAAP.
Non-IFRS Financial Measures
This Report contains references to certain non-IFRS measures, including EBITDA. EBITDA is not an IFRS measure and should not be construed as an alternative to any IFRS measure such as revenue, gross profit, other income, net profit or cash flow from operating activities. EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to shareholders before income tax, finance expense (net of capitalized interest), finance income, the excess of fair value of net assets acquired over cost of acquisition, depreciation and amortization. In this Report EBITDA and related ratios are presented for JLR. EBITDA and related ratios should not be considered in isolation and are not measures of JLRs financial performance or liquidity under IFRS and should not be considered as an alternative to profit or loss for the period or any other performance measures derived in accordance with IFRS or as an alternative to cash flow from operating, investing or financing activities as a measure of our liquidity as derived in accordance with IFRS. EBITDA, as used herein, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
