Dabur India PAT up 28%

Oct 27, 2004

Dabur India has reported over 13% topline growth during the September quarter (standalone India operations). There was an improvement in operating margins led by a dip in advertising expenses as a percentage of sales. Higher other income and lower interest outgo, combined with the margin expansion led to the consequent 28% rise in net profits for the quarter. The company has restated its consolidated numbers for 2QFY04 and we have yet to receive a detailed release on the same. We will put up a detailed analysis once we get the release from the company.
