Britannia net profit ups 19.41% to Rs 258.08 cr In Q1

The international businesses remained flat due to slow-down in geographies like Middle East and Africa, Britannia said.

Driven by the double-digit volume growth, FMCG major Britannia Industries has posted 19.41 per cent growth in consolidated net profit at Rs 258.08 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. The company had posted a net profit of Rs 216.12 crore in the April-June period a year ago.

 For the quarter under review, the total revenue stood at Rs 2,585.84. It was Rs 2,375.01 crore in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal, Britannia Industries said in a BSE filing.

The company said reported revenue, part of total income, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, is not comparable to the revenue reported in the previous period due to implementation of GST with effect from July 1, 2017.

"Excise duty has subsumed into GST, and hence revenue from sale of goods for the period commencing July 1, 2017 does not include excise duty," it added.

"We have witnessed positive momentum in the market over the last few quarters. Our double-digit growth for the quarter is backed by a double-digit volume growth primarily due to our investment in brands and widening our distribution network through focus on direct reach, rural market and weak states," Britannia Industries MD Varun Berry said.

The international businesses remained flat due to slow-down in geographies like Middle East and Africa, Britannia said.

"The growth in dairy business has been subdued due to our focus on driving value added products and reducing our play in the less profitable commoditised products, which has helped us improve our profitability," Britannia said.

The company said in its 100th year it will enter into “many unchartered territories" to secure disruptive growth.

The company in a separate filing said its board of directors has recommended and approved issuance of secured redeemable non-convertible debentures as bonus debentures of Rs 50 in the ratio of 1 bonus debenture for every 1 equity shares held by the shareholders of the company.

Shares of Britannia Industries were trading at Rs 6,318.95 apiece, down 1.19 per cent, on BSE.
