5 Takeaways from HUL's Q4 Results

FMCG major Hindustan Unilever (HUL) today reported its March 2022 quarter earnings after market hours.

Ever since the Russia-Ukraine war broke out, the company along with the whole industry have been facing raw material price challenges.

So, investors and analysts were eager to see what the FMCG giant has to show in its quarterly report.

Here are five key takeaways from HUL's results.

  • HUL's standalone net profit for the quarter under review came in at Rs 23.3 bn, up 8.6% from Rs 21.4 bn posted in the same quarter last year.
  • Revenues rose 10% and stood at Rs 131.9 bn compared to Rs 119.5 bn in the year-ago quarter.

    HUL's home care segment growth was at 24% with strong performance in fabric wash and household care. Beauty and personal care segment grew by 4%.
  • In the context of unprecedented inflation, HUL continues to manage business dynamically driving savings harder across all lines of P&L and taking calibrated pricing actions.
  • This fiscal, HUL achieved a milestone of becoming a Rs 500 bn turnover company.
  • The company's board recommended a final dividend of Rs 19 per share.

    This is in addition to the interim dividend of Rs 15 paid in November last year. The total dividend for fiscal 2022 comes in at Rs 34 per share.
  • Ahead of its results, shares of HUL ended on a flat note at Rs 2,144, down 0.2%.

    In the past one month, shares of the company have gained around 9% while its one-year performance is dismal (down 10%).


    Speaking of HUL, here's an interesting data on the stock, between 2002 to 2010, HUL's stock price went nowhere. Look at the chart below.

    The stock was basically in an 8 year coma. The returns could barely even make up for the inflation.

    However, over the 2010 to 2020 period, HUL delivered a whopping return of 30% CAGR!

    Back in November 2020, co-head of Research at Equitymaster, Rahul Shah recorded a video on why you should skip stocks like Nestle and HUL.

    In the video, Rahul Shah discussed why he preferred a little known stock over HUL and how he was proven right.
