GSK Consumer: Reverses topline trend but…

Jan 27, 2004

GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (erstwhile SmithKline Beecham Consumer Healthcare) has reported nearly 8% growth in net sales (value terms) and 4.8% (volume terms) during the December quarter. However, weakness in the operating margins continued and the company finished the quarter with over 35% dip in profit before tax. However, owing to a deferred tax credit, which the company got the benefit of, GSK Consumer finished December quarter with over 83% net profit growth.
