MANAGING DIRECTOR AND CEO’S COMMENTS
Commenting on the business performance of 4Q FY 2022, Sudhir Sitapati, Managing Director
and CEO, GCPL, said:
We delivered a weak performance in 4Q FY 2022. Overall sales grew by 7% and our full year sales grew
in double-digits. However, this growth was driven by pricing. We continue to believe that with the
relatively non-discretionary, mass pricing of our portfolio and very good performance on market shares,
volume growth will return in the medium term. Our overall EBITDA declined by 9% (without one-offs)
driven by unprecedented global commodity inflation and scale deleverage in Indonesia. PAT without
exceptional items and one-offs declined by 4%.
From a category perspective, we saw a strong performance in Personal Care, which grew by 18%. Home
Care delivered a weak performance and declined by 7%. From a geography perspective, India grew at
9%. Our Africa, USA and Middle East business continued its robust growth trajectory, growing at 15% in
INR and 14% in constant currency terms. Performance in our Indonesian business was weak, declining
by 15% in INR and 16% in constant currency terms.
We continue to have a healthy balance sheet and our net debt to equity ratio continues to come down.
We are on a journey to reduce inventory and wasted cost and are deploying this to drive profitable and
sustainable volume growth across our portfolio through category development.
We remain committed to our purpose of bringing the goodness of health and beauty to consumers in
emerging markets. We were recently ranked amongst BW Businessworld’s list of India’s top 10
sustainable companies for the second year in a row.
