Overall, ad spend was almost flat across the three quarters – Q1-2015, Q4-2014 and Q1-2014.

Over the nine quarter period under consideration, the simple average ad spend in terms of percentage of ASP is 26.7 per cent, while the proportion of discount over the same period works out to 73.3 per cent of ASP.  This trend is likely to continue based on historical data across the nine quarters under consideration. The company in Q2-2015 is likely to resort significantly on offering discount and spend a lower towards advertising. Q3-2015 is likely to see the company’s ad spend go up significantly.

The company’s highest ad spend over the nine quarters has been Rs 8.67 crore in Q3-2014 (49.3 per cent of ASP).

While the company’s TIO across the nine quarters under consideration shows a linear upward trend, the company’s ASP seems to have flattened out linearly in terms of absolute rupees, and shows a slightly downward trend in terms of percentage of TIO. Please refer to Fig 1A below.

Hawkins PAT for Q1-2015 at Rs 7.07 crore (7.3 per cent of TIO) was 46.1 per cent lower than the Rs 13.13 crore (9.3 per cent of TIO) in the immediate trailing quarter and 44.6 per cent more than the Rs 4.89 crore (6.5 per cent of TIO) in the corresponding year ago quarter.
