M&M exported 9,360 vehicles during the first quarter, a growth of 100.2 percent over the corresponding period a year ago.

Its domestic tractor sales grew 18.8 percent and the farm equipment segment's revenue crossed Rs 5,000 crore mark during the period under review.

On the future outlook, the company said a normal monsoon, with a satisfactory temporal and spatial distribution, combined with the recently approved higher MSP for Kharif crops, should help support rural consumption further.

"Global growth backdrop has remained buoyant so far. However, the recently announced and anticipated tariff hike by the US and retaliatory measures by trading partners have increased the likelihood of escalating and sustained trade actions. These could pose risks to global recovery and investments," the company noted.

Shares of M&M were trading 0.32 percent up at Rs 936 per scrip on BSE.
