Marico has posted a 3.28 per cent rise in its consolidated net profit to Rs 377 crore for the June 2022 quarter, compared with Rs 365 crore in the corresponding period last year. The FMCG company’s revenue from operations during April-June 2022 increased 1.3 per cent to Rs 2,558 crore, against Rs 2,525 crore in the year-ago period.

“In India, the FMCG sector witnessed volume decline in Q1FY23 for the third quarter in a row and value growth continued to be price-led. Domestic volumes declined by 6 per cent year-on-year, dragged by a double-digit decline in Saffola Oils.

Marico’s domestic volumes fell 6 per cent year-on-year, dragged by a double-digit decline in Saffola Oils. Gross margin expanded 401 bps year-on-year, attributable mainly to benign copra prices and favorable mix impact.

The company’s Ebitda margin stood at 20.6 per cent, which was 159 bps higher as compared to the year-ago period. Its Ebitda also jumped 10 per cent year-on-year. Ebitda stands for earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation.

The company has acquired a 53.98 per cent stake and gained control of HW Wellness Solutions Pvt Ltd with effect from May 23.
