Pidilite Results Review: Net Profit Spikes as Sales Rise 121%

Aug 12, 2021

Specialty chemical company Pidilite Industries on Wednesday reported strong operational performance for the quarter ended June 2021.

Shares of the company neared their all-time high in early trade today. However, the stock erased gains as the session progressed and fell 1.5%.

Robust performance on a low base

Pidilite reported consolidated net sales growth of 121% over the same quarter last year.

It also posted an EBITDA growth of 429% for the quarter ended 30 June 2021.

Profit before tax came in at Rs 2.9 bn, growing by 832% over the same quarter last year.

Meanwhile, profit after tax (PAT) came at Rs 2.2 bn, which grew multi-fold, over the same quarter last year.

Here's a table comparing Pidilite's results on key parameters.

Financial Performance

(Rs bn) Jun-21 Mar-21 Jun-20 QoQ (%) YoY (%)
Revenue from operations 19.4 22.4 8.8 -13.4% 120.8%
Total Expenses 16.6 18.4 8.7 -10.0% 91.1%
Profit before tax 2.9 4.1 0.3 -29.7% 832.3%
Tax 0.7 1.0 0.2 -30.8% 350.0%
Profit after tax 2.2 3.1 0.2 -29.3% 1346.7%
Data Source: Company Filings

Pidilite attributed the robust performance due to previous year's lower base on account of nationwide lockdown.

If compared on a sequential basis, Pidilite's performance was tad lower as can be seen from the table above.

In the quarter, Pidilite's cost of materials consumed spiked 276% to Rs 9.1 bn.

As for most of the companies, for Pidilite too, the second wave disrupted business continuity from second half of April 2021 with gradual closures across the country in May and a part of June.

Demand recovery since June

Pidilite saw demand recovery since mid-June with most markets returning to normalcy across town classes and geographies.

Its consumer and bazaar businesses (C&B) witnessed recovery led by adhesive, construction chemicals, and DIY portfolio.

Meanwhile, the recovery in business to business (B2B) category was on account of resurgence in industrial activity.

Gross margins contracted on account of sharp escalation in input costs. This was partially mitigated by judicious pricing.

Pidilite's overseas subsidiaries continued their positive momentum and reported double-digit constant currency revenue growth on top of strong earnings growth.

Commenting on the performance, Pidilite's MD Bharat Puri said,

  • Despite a challenging business environment, we have delivered strong broad-based sales as well as earnings growth across businesses and geographies, albeit on last year's lower base.

    Input costs remained a significant challenge, we see these as peaking in the next quarter and then gradually softening over the second half of the year.
