According to the press release of Dabur India Ltd, during the quarter, consumption pressure continued across the sector on account of unprecedented inflation which has impacted the share of the income available for spending on consumer staples. This was witnessed across urban and rural markets.

In this challenging macro environment Dabur’s India business has been fairly resilient and is expected to report high single digit revenue growth on a very high base of 35.4% revenue growth in Q1 FY22.

This is backed by mid-single digit volume growth. Food & Beverages vertical has seen strong double-digit growth in the quarter on the back of improving out of home consumption, innovation, and intense summer season, H-lone and Personal Care portfolio is expected to record high single to low double-digit growth on a high base of 26.1 % growth in Q1 FY22.

Healthcare vertical is expected to report a decline over last year’s high base as the business had registered a growth of 30% in Q1FY22 led by the surge of Delta variant of Covid-19 during the quarter.

International Business is expected to register high single digit revenue growth during the quarter in constant currency, however due to currency devaluation particularly of Turkish Lira the reported growth in INR would be in low single digit.

Market Times News update

Overall, the consolidated revenue is expected to grow at mid to high single digits, and continues to grow ahead of category growths and gain market share in most of the segments.

On the profitability front, inflationary pressures continue to impact input costs such as crude led derivatives, vegetable oils, honey and other Agri-based commodities. The Company is taking judicious price increases and have embarked on cost saving initiatives to mitigate the impact on our margins.

However, the input cost pressure combined with portfolio mix changes have led to a near term impact on the operating margins which are expected to be lower by around 200 bps as compared to Q1FY22, with margins normalising to pre covid levels for Q1 despite unprecedented inflation. During Q1 of FY22 and FY21, the operating margins were higher than normal due to Covid-led surge in Healthcare vertical, said by the company.
