Revenue and profitability impacted by one-time settlements and extraordinary items

Core categories revenue sustained along with stable market share and regional chain stores continued to grow for the fourth consecutive quarter

New product launches and premiumization contributed substantially to Q4 revenue

Subdued EBIT margins was primarily due to stepped up investments in marketing activities (2.4x spend), crystallisation of full year Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) liability of Rs 1.2 cr, reorganization of bottle and flasks sourcing and certain one-time settlements with channel partners.

Commenting on the CGCEL’s performance, Promeet Ghosh, MD & CEO, said, “We launched Crompton 2.0 in June’23 which outlined our renewed focus towards accelerating revenue growth which is progressing well and translating into healthy margins. We delivered strong performance in ECD with double-digit growth for the third consecutive quarter with robust improvement in industry leading EBIT margins. The lighting business is showing signs of stabilization with revenue growth in H2 despite price erosion. We expect the intense summer season and uptick in demand for home & kitchen appliances to support the growth momentum while we continue to investment in growth initiatives.”
