Losses weigh on India Inc Q3 results

India Inc’s aggregate performance in Q3FY22 has been disappointing with revenues growing at just 16.7% year-on-year, the slowest pace in the last four quarters. Moreover, net profits for a sample of 1,685 companies (excluding banks and financials) have fallen by 12% y-o-y thanks to a contraction in operating profit margins of 243 basis points y-o-y and a 24% y-o-y jump in interest costs. Also, more companies have reported losses or a year-on-year drop in profits for the quarter than in December 2021.

Except for banks, IT services and automobiles, corporate earnings growth could remain subdued in FY24 as the economy is poised to decelerate sharply. With a few days to go before the end of earnings season, analysts at Jefferies noted that of the 100 companies they analysed for Q3FY23, 40% had reported numbers that were below estimates. Much like in FY23, earnings growth is expected to be dominated by banks and financials in the coming year too

Boeing offers CEO $5.3 million incentive to stay through recovery

Boeing on Friday awarded Chief Executive Dave Calhoun an incentive worth approximately $5.29 million to induce him to stay throughout the company’s recovery from the twin crises of the COVID-19 pandemic and two deadly 737 MAX crashes that led to the fleet’s grounding.

Boeing’s board of directors on Feb. 16 approved giving 25,000 in restricted stock units to Calhoun, which will vest in two installments on the first and second anniversary of the grant, according to regulatory filings by the company published on Friday.
