Tata Motors Limited ( TTM ) gained 7.5% to reach $41.11 on Aug 11, 2014, after the Indian automobile manufacturer posted earnings of Rs. 16.75 per ordinary share ($1.39 per American Depositary Share or ADS) for first-quarter fiscal 2015 ending Jun 30, 2014, up from Rs. 15.38 per share ($1.28 per ADS) in the year-ago quarter.                                 

Consolidated revenues in the quarter escalated 38.2% year over year to Rs. 646.83 billion ($10.75 billion). Strong demand for new products, higher volumes, enhanced product mix and better geographic mix at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) offset the negative impact of the weak operating and economic environment in the standalone business.

Revenues from the others segment improved to Rs. 6.24 billion ($103.7 million) from Rs. 5.74 billion ($95.4 million).
