In news from the FMCG sector...

Tata Consumer Q4 Results: Net Profit Slumps 44% Sequentially, Margin Contracts

Tata Consumer Products saw a fall in quarterly consolidated profit and a contraction in margin over the preceding three months as expenses rose.

Net profit of Tata Tea and Tata Salt maker declined 44% sequentially to Rs 1.3 bn in the January-March period, according to an exchange filing.

While India beverages and foods businesses maintained revenue, the international beverage business revenue declined versus the December quarter.

"Consolidated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) growth for the quarter was impacted by tea inflation in India and increased investments, that more than offset the strong EBITDA growth in India food and International business," the company said in its earnings presentation.

During the year, Tata Salt gained market share with its value-added salts portfolio growing faster, which is in line with the company's premiumisation strategy. The company added five new products to its ready-to-cook category under the "Tata Sampann" brand. They include "haldi doodh" mix, "masala daliya khichdi" mix, dhokla mix, supergrain ragi idli and supergrain ragi dosa mixes.

"In line with our strategic priority of exploring new opportunities, the health and wellness focused foods portfolio was further enhanced through acquisition of Kottaram Agro Foods (Soulfull brand)-now renamed as Tata Consumer Soulfull," the company said in an exchange filing. "This opens significant opportunities in the fast growing 'on the table' and 'on the go' segments."

The company said integration of its India foods and beverages businesses is now complete. "A redesigned sales and distribution system is in place with digitisation across channel partners, a new integrated business planning system covering demand and supply planning is now live."

We will keep you posted on updates from this space. Stay tuned.

Speaking of the FMCG sector, have a look at the chart below which shows the performance of BSE Sensex and BSE FMCG index since 2009:

Richa Agarwal, Senior Research Analyst at Equitymaster, and Editor of the smallcap service, Hidden Treasure, believes this outperformance could continue for many years.

She said that with a rising population and standards of living, Indian's consumption demand for FMCG products will skyrocket over the coming years.
