Our EBITDA marked a 21.6 per cent growth during the quarter,” said Dabur India CEO Sunil Duggal said.

Trends

The company’s ASP in Q1-2016 at Rs 330.61 crore (16 per cent of TIO) was the highest in terms of actual rupee spends as well as in terms of percentage of TIO during the 11 quarter period starting Q3-2013 until Q1-2016. Over the 11 quarter period under consideration, Dabur’s ASP in absolute rupees and ASP in terms of percentage of TIO both show a linear increasing trend. Please refer to Fig 1 below. 

Fig 1 below indicates that ASP in terms of percentage of TIO follows a linearly increasing zigzag line, with peaks in Q1 and Q3 and valleys in Q2 and Q4 of a financial year. Based on this, it is quite likely that the company’s ASP in Q2-2016 (next quarter) may be lower in terms of percentage of TIO.

Dabur TIO in Q1-2016 at Rs 2069.49 crore was 10.6 per cent more than the Rs 1868.86 crore in Q1-2015 and was 6.1 per cent more than the Rs 1949.74 crore in Q4-2015. The company’s TIO shows a linear increasing trend during the eleven quarter period under consideration in this report.

Dabur PAT for Q1-2016 at Rs 262.10 crore (12.7 per cent of TIO) was 24.3 per cent more than the Rs 210.81 crore (11.3 per cent of TIO) in Q1-2015, but was eight per cent lower than the Rs 284.86 crore (14.6 per cent of TIO) in the immediate trailing quarter. PAT in abslute rupees as well as in terms of percentage of TIO show linear increasing trends. Please refer to Fig 2 below.
