Suzuki Motor Q2 Profit Drops 32% Amid Demand Slump In India, Its Biggest Market

Japan's Suzuki Motor posted an operating profit of 55.9 billion yen for the July-September quarter

Tokyo:

Suzuki Motor Corp reported on Tuesday a 32 per cent fall in second-quarter operating profit, weighed by a slowdown in domestic output as the automaker improves its inspection processes, and a slump in India, its biggest market.

Japan's fourth-largest automaker posted an operating profit of 55.9 billion yen ($513.83 million) for the July-September quarter, down from 82 billion yen a year ago but above a mean forecast for 44.87 billion yen from nine analysts according to Refinitiv data.

Last month, Suzuki cut its full-year operating profit forecast by nearly 40 per cent to 200 billion yen, which would be a four-year low, as it takes a hit from measures to improve its final inspection system for cars sold in Japan, and slowing demand in India.
