Shares of ITC gained over 1.7% today after the FMCG major said that it has initiated clinical trials for developing a nasal spray for Covid-19 prevention. The company plans to market the nasal spray under the 'Savlon' brand.

ITC had received approvals from ethics committees and is registered with clinical trial registry-India (CTRI) for clinical trials of the nasal spray which is designed to arrest the virus at the entry point in the nasal cavity itself.

Developed by scientists at ITC Life Sciences and Technology Centre (LSTC), Bengaluru, sources say the product has the potential to be effective and safe in preventing infection and transmission of Covid-19 along with the existing measures of hygiene recommended by health authorities.

ITC's LSTC has been at the core of the company's drive for science-led product innovation to support and build its wide range of product portfolio.

The company's research and development (R&D) teams were instrumental in developing a range of innovative health and hygiene offerings that were commercially made available under the Savlon brand, during the pandemic.

ITC share price ended the day up by 1.5% on the BSE.

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:

While the Sensex has offered 393% returns since 2009, the BSE FMCG index has gone up a staggering 532% returns over the same period.

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

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

Reliance Industries Rallies 6% as Firm to Restructure, Repurpose Gasification Assets

Reliance Industries (RIL) shares surged than 6% today after its board decided to implement a scheme of arrangement to transfer Gasification Undertaking into a wholly-owned subsidiary.

It has decided to implement a scheme of arrangement between Reliance and its shareholders and creditors; and Reliance Syngas (RSL) and its shareholders and creditors.

RSL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reliance. It has invested Rs 1 m in cash in 1 lakh equity shares of Rs 10 each of RSL.

The gasification project at Jamnagar was set up with the objective to produce syngas to meet the energy requirements as refinery off-gases, which earlier served as fuel, were repurposed into feedstock for the refinery off gas cracker (ROGC).

This enables production of olefins at competitive capital and operating costs. Syngas as a fuel ensures reliability of supply and helps reduce volatility in energy costs. Syngas is also used to produce Hydrogen for consumption in the Jamnagar refinery.

Reliance mentioned that the appointed date of the scheme would be 31 March 2022 or such other date as may be determined by the board.

The scheme will require approval of stock exchanges, creditors, shareholders, NCLT and other regulatory authorities.

Earlier this week, the Reliance stock had plunged as much as 4.2% on Monday as the country's largest firm decided to halt a stake sale in its oil-to-chemicals business (O2C) to Saudi Arabia's Aramco and pulled back from a potential spinoff of its most profitable unit.

Reliance Industries share price ended the day up by 6% on the BSE.
