Axis Bank Q3 beats estimates; profit jumps 25% to Rs 726 cr, asset quality improves
Country's third largest private sector lender Axis Bank's third-quarter earnings beat analyst expectations, with improvement in asset quality performance.
Profit during the quarter grew by 25.3 percent year-on-year to Rs 726.4 crore despite fall in other income & operating income, driven by lower provisions and higher net interest income.
Net interest income, the difference between interest earned and interest expended, grew by 9.2 percent to Rs 4,731.52 crore compared to Rs 4,333.73 crore in year-ago, with strong loan growth at 21 percent YoY.

ONGC to acquire 51.11% government stake in HPCL, ONGC gains 5%
Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) signed a deal to acquire 51.11% stake in Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) for about Rs36,915cr in an all-cash deal, which would close by end of Jan 2018. The deal is proposed to buy 778845375 equity shares in HPCL at a cash purchase consideration of Rs473.97 per share which is ~13.8% premium to HPCL’s closing on Friday (BSE).
The goal of this deal was to create an integrated oil major to compete with global rivals and will help the government meet annual disinvestment target. The deal is exempt from a public offer as both the entities are related parties but the acquisition involving two listed entities have been carried out on an arm’s length basis.

Dr. Reddy's fined $5mn by US court over drug packaging
A federal court in the US has imposed a $5mn civil penalty on a subsidiary of Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories for distributing prescription drugs in blister packs that were not child resistant. Child-resistant packaging is a critical safety measure.
Dr. Reddy’s failed to ensure that children were protected from potentially harmful prescription drugs and that it failed to comply with Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) and the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA) according to the US Department of Justice. As per the complaint, Dr. Reddy’s distributed such prescription drugs until 2012 and also failed to notify the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Tata Motors hikes product prices by 1-3.7% in Mumbai
Tata Motors Ltd (TML) has increased ex-showroom prices of all its cars by 1.0-3.7% in Mumbai. This comes after the company offered a limited-period insurance and exchange offer to its customers on five models. 
According to Cogencis, the company has raised prices of the Tiago hatchback by 1.3-2.4% for the petrol variant, and 1.7-2.6% for the diesel variant. Prices for Tiago's petrol variant now start at Rs3, 31,646 ex-showroom Mumbai, and Rs4, 11,181 for the diesel variant.
TML, on the consolidated level, derives ~80% of its revenue from a wholly owned subsidiary, JLR, which had witnessed EBITDA margin decline in FY16 and FY17 on account of weakness in volumes growth, model mix, and forex losses. Standalone business (~80% CV and PV) has experienced market share losses and is expected to turnaround the trend on account of better acceptance of SCR technology (CV) and series of new launches in PV segment (Tigor/Hexa/Tiago).
