Colgate: The smile widens!
Jan 25, 2006

Oral care major, Colgate India (Colgate), announced its results for the third quarter ended December 2005 late yesterday. The company has reported a robust topline growth, albeit on a low base of 3QFY05, and a much higher bottomline growth, owing to significant margin expansion. Lower tax outgo also helped matters. Bottomline growth would have been even faster, had it not incurred a higher deprecation charge. For the nine-month period, the company’s bottomline has increased by 24% YoY on the back of a 13% YoY growth in revenues.
