SmithKline Consumer's profits up 8%

Oct 23, 2000

SmithKline Beecham Consumer Healthcare Ltd. (SBCH) has reported 21% increase in revenues and maintained operating margins at 19.3%. Increase in raw material prices and higher ad spend has compensated for the substantial decline in inventory.

The profits of the company increased by marginal 8%. During the year the company has increased the capacity to manufacture Horlicks and the commencement of operations led to higher interest cost and depreciation charge (instead of capitalising the cost).

At the current market price of Rs 410, SBCH gets a P/E multiple of 15 times its 3QFY01 annualised earnings.
