The MoU was signed at IMC headquarters, by the Company’s CEO, Ali Asghar Jamali and President UNAP, Moohi Shaheen.
Under the partnership, UNAP will undertake to plant over 150,000 tree saplings in Karachi and surrounding areas.
Expressing his views, Mr. Ali Asghar Jamali, CEO IMC, said “Deforestation is becoming a serious concern for Pakistan. What is needed is a fast, equally serious and collective endeavour to overcome this predicament and our collaboration with UNAP for the Million Tree Plantation Program aims to do just that.

Indus Motor Declares Rs 4.8 Billion Profit After Tax for First Half FY20-21
Karachi – 26th February 2020: The Board of Directors of Indus Motor Company (IMC) released its financial results for the half-year ended December 31, 2020.
IMC’s combined sales of Completely Knocked Down (CKD) and Completely Built-up Units (CBU) units increased by 82% to 26,362 units against 14,453 units sold in the same period last year. The Company produced 26,383 vehicles, registering an 81 % increase, as compared to 14,555 units produced in the same period last year. IMC’s market share in the overall market stood at approximately 24.7% for the half year ended December 31, 2020.
The Company’s net sales turnover for the half year ended December 31, 2020, increased to Rs. 79.65 billion as compared to Rs. 42.78 billion, for the same period last year, while profit after tax increased to Rs. 4.8 billion as against Rs. 2.3 billion achieved in the same period last year.
The increase in turnover and profitability for the half-year period was mainly owing to higher CKD and CBU volumes, and increased other income due to improved cash flows. However, cost increases mainly due to Rupee devaluation eroded the gross profit margin to 7.55% against 8.81% in same period last year.
The Company experienced an overwhelming response to Toyota Yaris in the first, as well as second quarter of fiscal year 2020-21 which contributed to volume increase in Passenger Car segment. Moreover, Fortuner TRD variant was launched in October 2020 which too was well received by customers.
The Auto policy introduced in 2016 will end by June 2021. The policy enabled green field investments in the auto industry to reach the 500,000 units of annual production capacity, with multiple brands and product offerings. Consumer purchasing power was revitalized, and a reduction in interest rates led to an increase in auto financing, which contributed to demand in the first half of FY 20-21.
The Earnings Per Share of the Company for half year ended December 31, 2020 stood at Rs.61.08 as compared to Rs. 29.32 reported during the same period last year.

Expressing his views, CEO IMC, Ali Asghar Jamali, stated, “Overall, the automobile industry is clearly bouncing back. The economic upturn following the gloom and despair hovering over the auto industry during the COVID-19 lockdown, owes itself to the Government’s timely decision to ease the lockdown and introduction of favourable policies. Reduction in interest rates has been another factor that led to an increase in auto financing, bolstering consumer confidence.”
He further added, “We thank our valued customers who have always placed their trust in our products, as well as all our employees, stakeholders and shareholders for their sustained support.”
During the period, the Company received accolades, winning the “Most Outstanding Company in Pakistan 2020 (Automobiles and Component Sector)” awarded by Asiamoney, and the “Best Sustainability Report Award 2019” conferred by the Joint Committee of Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan and Institute of Cost and Management Accountants of Pakistan.

IMC Initiates Drive to Collect Strewn Flags Post Independence Day Celebrations
Karachi: Following 14th August celebrations, Indus Motor Company (IMC) launched a drive to gather national flags littered around the city of Karachi under the Company’s ‘Clean Pakistan Drive’.
Pakistan’s National Day is celebrated every year across the country with much enthusiasm and national pride. The celebration is incomplete without the wide range of decorations available on sale, top-seller being the national flag, which comes in all forms and sizes. In all the excitement, these buntings find the way to the ground, littering wide expanses of area across the city, sadly leading to the un-avoidable under-foot trampling.
To mitigate the incidence of desecration of this national symbol, IMC for the third running year, set out on a drive for collection of national flags buntings littered around the city on 15th August 2020. Employees of IMC, under the Employee Volunteering Program participated in the activity moving along pre-determined routes spanning the city.
On the occasion Ali Asghar Jamali, CEO IMC expressed, “Celebrating Pakistan’s National Day with patriotic fervor is every Pakistani citizen’s privilege but at the same time upholding sanctity and showing due respect for the national flag is our principal duty. IMC under the ‘Clean Pakistan Drive’ has launched this initiative to gather flags found strewn on roads and open spaces across the city of Karachi by our team of volunteers. Mindful of the company’s Safety First policy, the team engaged in the activity strictly following all safety protocols for protection against the COVID-19 pandemic.”

IMC Declares profit after tax of PKR 5.1 billion for FY2019-20
Karachi: The Board of Directors of Indus Motor Company Ltd. (IMC) met on August 10, 2020 to review the company’s financial and operating performance for the year ended June 30, 2020.
The net sales turnover for the year ended, June 30,2020 decreased by 46% to Rs.86 billion as compared to Rs.158 billion in the last fiscal year, while profit after tax for the year also decreased by 63% to Rs.5.08 billion, as against Rs.13.71 billion achieved in the same last year. During the year, the Company contributed a sum of Rs.35.9 billion to the national exchequer.
The decline in turnover and profitability for the year was mainly due to lower volumes, primarily due to challenging economic conditions, imposition of taxes and duties and lockdown on account of COVID-19 pandemic. The combined sales of Toyota CKD and CBU vehicles stood at 28,837 units, compared to 66,211 units in the previous year.
The industry already burdened by inconsistent economic policies; has now been exposed to additional challenges on account of the COVID-19 outbreak. The collective impact of higher taxation, shrinking GDP, consistent PKR devaluation and the COVID-19 lockdown, has greatly impacted the operational capability of the automotive industry. Due to delayed resumption, the auto sector could not revive in the last quarter of FY 19-20 as per PAMA data; April and May 2020 were the hardest hit months, with April 2020 recording zero sales in the passenger cars segment across the industry.
Ali Asghar Jamali, CEO IMC said “IMC has, and always will be devoted to Pakistani market and to our customers whose interest and belief in our products is rapidly increasing every year. It is because of the support of our customers and their trust in us that IMC is working diligently to provide them with the best even during the times of global pandemic that has caused an overall economic slowdown.”
During the year, the Company discontinued the Corolla 1.3L vehicles in March 2020, which performed as a market leader in the segment for over 25 years. The flagship Corolla brand will continue in 1.6L and 1.8L segments as available worldwide. On March 19, 2020, the Company opened booking for the new-age masterpiece, the all new Toyota Yaris with variants in 1.3L and 1.5L segments. Despite a complete lockdown in the country and no significant marketing activities being conducted, Toyota Yaris has been very well received by customers.
Based on the results, the Board of Directors announced a final dividend of Rs.7 per share, making the annual dividend for the year Rs.30 per share.
