In line with the CV industry performance VECV saw sharp decline in its volumes in Q4 CY13. While it has gained market share across most categories for CY13, in Q4 CY13 it lost market share as the market leaders resorted to higher discounts. During the quarter the company sold 8,267 vehicles including Volvo Trucks, registering a total decline of 29.6% yoy. Fall was seen across all segments in the domestic market. Exports, however, showed a remarkable increase of 60.2% yoy. During the quarter, the company also sold more than 2,500 long block engines from its recently commenced powertrain plant. OPM at 5.3% was lower by 87bps yoy and 31bps qoq. This was much better than the industry leaders who reported huge losses at operating levels. High discount levels and operating deleverage were the key reasons for the decline in margins.
