Nestle: Mixed year!
Mar 21, 2007

Processed foods major, Nestle India, announced its results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 2006. The company reported a topline growth of 13.7% YoY for the year led by higher sales in the domestic market. Margins witnessed pressure on account of higher raw material and overhead costs. The bottomline grew by 1.8% YoY (including the extraordinary item). The management has declared an interim dividend of Rs 1.5 per share (dividend yield of 0.2%).
