Global rating agency Fitch Wednesday downgraded the ratings of Tata Motors to ‘BB-‘ from ‘BB’ and also lowered the outlook to negative, citing rising risks to its already poor profitability and free cash generation over the next two-three years.

Fitch had on February 6 placed the automakers long-term issuer ratings of ‘BB’ on rating watch negative.
The downgrade reflects an expected reduction in the company’s profitability and free cash generation in the next two-three years, Fitch said in a note.

Meanwhile, the company also reported a consolidated net loss of Rs 3,679.66 crore for the first quarter ended June 30.
