Default Rumour : Jaguar-Land Rover to go for IPO?

Jaguar Land Rover IPO Seen as Jackpot as Valuation Soars - Bloomberg

What is interesting is that JLR is today valued at $14 Billion and TML stock is the second best auto stock globally!! TML has surely done a great job of integrating and growing JLR!

It's a speculative article because Tata Motors has never mentioned that they'll go for an IPO of JLR. Since the interest rates in Europe are very low, it makes more sense for Tata Motors to fund expansion by borrowing from banks or from bond investors rather than go for an IPO and dilute their stake in the company.

Theres a lot of noise being made by the english financial bodies through the local media to list JLR seperately. These were the same people who wrote off JLRs survival and questioned an Indian companies ability to bring back these icons from the brink of dissapearance.

Now JLR with investments in place, strong profits/sales and a strong product line up in the pipeline is an investment bankers dream. I believe TML is smart enough not to judge a book by its cover.

Good for TATA ($2 billion in profits). I think the western media really wants TATA to dilute its share now that the company is performing.
