EBIDTA was at Rs 164 crore, a 1-per cent on-year rise.

FMCG major Emami Ltd on Friday reported a multi-fold rise in consolidated net profit during the March quarter at Rs 354 crore against Rs 87.7 crore a year ago, boosted by a minimum alternate tax (MAT) credit of Rs 288 crore during the period.

Revenue for the quarter under review was Rs 770 crore, a 5 per cent rise over the topline of Rs 730 crore in January-March 2021.

The company said owing to the recognition of the MAT credit entitlement of the earlier years, tax liability was lower and net profit higher by Rs 230.33 crore.

"The FMCG industry was affected with muted volumes in Q4 against the backdrop of rising inflation levels, further fueled by geo-political factors, which impacted the overall consumption sentiment across rural and urban markets," Emami said in a release to the bourses.

In the quarter ended March, the Kolkata-headquartered company reported gross margins at 62.4 per cent, a contraction of only 30 basis points on account of price hikes and strategic procurement.

EBIDTA was at Rs 164 crore, a 1-per cent on-year rise.

"Despite the challenging environment that the industry is going through since the last few years, we are happy to have posted a 3 year PBT CAGR of 20 per cent in FY22, which is one of the highest in the industry since the COVID period.

With an overall focus on digital business, we are now increasingly looking at D2C and eB2B segments and our investments in new-age startups are a step towards being present in the ever expanding FMCG sector, Emami CMD Harsha V Agarwal said.
