Pidilite: High demand boosts bottomline

Feb 10, 2011

Pidilite Industries has announced its 3QFY11 results. The company has reported a 27.2% YoY and a 24.8% YoY growth in sales and net profits respectively. Here is our analysis of the results.

Performance summary
  • Net sales grow by 27.2% YoY during 3QFY11. This is led by strong demand in the consumer & bazaar products and industrial products segments.
  • Operating (EBITDA) margins remained flat as higher raw material costs were balanced by fall in staff costs and other expenditure (all as a percentage of sales).
  • Net profits increased by 24.8% YoY. This is due to higher operating income, increase in other income, and fall in interest rates partly offset by higher taxes and lower exceptional items.
  • Net profit for 9mFY11 grew by 15.1% YoY while the net profit margins declined by 0.8%. This decline is a result of increase in raw material costs and rise in effective tax rate. The decline could have been sharper but for higher other income, fall in depreciation and in interest costs during the period.
