Adi Godrej’s Comments:

Godrej Group Chairman Adi Godrej said,” “We have done fairly well in a challenging environment. We continue to deliver topline growth that is far ahead of the growth both for the overall FMCG sector and for the home and personal categories that we participate in. We have been consistently gaining share and strengthening our market positions. “

“However, over the last couple of quarters in particular, the FMCG industry has witnessed a significant slowdown. These trends are evident across India and other emerging markets. The lag effect of multiple quarters of deceleration in GDP growth and high food inflation has negatively impacted consumer sentiment in India.  Consequently, consumption has taken a hit as consumers have been reducing their frequency of purchase. 

We are confident that this is just a cyclical phenomenon. The fundamentals still remain positive, as there is still a lot of headroom for growth given the low  penetration and consumption rates for many FMCG categories in India. As the  economic environment improves, we are hopeful that consumer sentiment will turn positive and we will see better growth in the industry in the quarters ahead,” added Godrej.

Category Review as indicated by Godrej CP

Household Insecticides:

Sales growth at 8 plus per cent; well ahead of the category that witnessed an abnormal seasonal slowdown. Both our key brands HIT and Good knight continue to gain share and strengthen market leadership positions across all formats. Our latest innovation in the category, Good knight Fast Card - a paper based mosquito repellant at a price point of Re 1 is performing ahead of our expectations.

Soaps:

Sales value and volume growth at 6 plus per cent, well ahead of the category growth which de-grew on both value and volume terms. Category growth is witnessing pressure with slowdown at the mass premium end of the category. We have also taken calibrated price hikes to counter some of the impact of the recent increase in palm oil prices.

Hair Colours:

Strong momentum in hair colours was maintained, delivering sales growth at 37 plus per cent Growth rates were significantly ahead of category growth rates. We also launched new packaging for Nupur. Ongoing initiatives such as salon engagement programs, festival linked promotions, etc. to drive higher consumption and penetration for the

category continued to deliver healthy results.

Liquid Detergents:

Liquid detergents grew 36 per cent. We continue to do well aided by a new TV campaign for Ezee.
