SmithKline Consumer's impressive profit growth in 2QFY01

Aug 1, 2000

SmithKline Beecham Consumer Healthcare (SBCH) has reported an impressive 29% in topline and a 41% jump in net profits to Rs 278 m in the 2QFY01.

(Rs m) 2QFY00 2QFY01 Change

No. of Shares (eoy) (m) 45 45
Diluted number of shares 45 45
Diluted Earnings per share* 17.4 24.5
*(annualised)

The company's operating margins improved to 16.3% during the 2QFY01 due to effective cost control measures initiated by the company. This has resulted in a 53% increase in the operating profits. However net profit growth is comparatively lower due to increase in depreciation charge and interest cost.

The company's earnings per share of Rs 24.5, implies a P/E multiple of 18 times its 2QFY01 annualised earnings. The company's market cap to sales ratio of 2.4 times is comparatively lower than its historic 3-4 times.
