BENGALURU: Over the past 12 quarters, Q3 of a financial year has traditionally been a good quarter for Emami Limited (Emami). The company?s advertisement and sales promotional spends have been highest during the period under consideration. Following its past convention, Emami increased its advertisement and sales promotion (ASP) spends in Q4-2015 by 16 per cent to Rs 119.25 crore (17.2 per cent of Total Income from Operations or TIO) from Rs 102.84 crore (21 per cent of TIO) in the immediate trailing quarter (Q2-2015) and 35.7 per cent more than the Rs 87.85 crore (15 per cent of TIO) in the corresponding year ago quarter (Q3-2014). During 9M-2015 (YTD), the company?s ASP was up 37 per cent to Rs 312.19 crore (18.8 per cent of TIO) from Rs 227.88 crore (16.6 per cent of TIO) in 9M-2014.

During a 12 quarter period starting Q4-2013 until the current quarter, Emami?s Q3-2015 ASP is the highest so far in terms of absolute rupees ? Rs 119.25 crore (17.2 per cent), but Q2-2015 ASP in terms of per centage of TIO was highest at 21 per cent (Rs 102.84 crore).

Traditionally, during the last three financial years (FY-2012, FY-2013, FY-2014), Emami?s ASP has been lowest in the fourth quarter and if the company follows the same trend, a drop in ASP for Q4-2015 can be expected.

During 9M-2015, PAT at Rs 347.28 crore (20.9 per cent of TIO) was 19.2 per cent more than the Rs 291.32 crore (21.2 per cent of TIO) in 9M-2014.
