Mumbai: Science-based Ayurveda company Dabur India, has reported a 6 per cent increase in consolidated revenue for Q2 FY’ 23. On a constant currency basis, revenue increased by 8.5 per cent in Q2 FY’ 23.

Dabur India Ltd’s  (DIL) board of directors met to review the company's unaudited financial results for the quarter ended 30 September 2022.

The board of directors of Dabur India Ltd declared an interim dividend of 250 per cent for 2022-23.

Dabur India chairman Mohit Burman said, “Continuing with our payout policy, the board has declared an interim dividend of Rs 2.50 per share, aggregating to a total payout of Rs 442.94 crore.”  

Dabur demonstrated agility and resilience in delivering consistent organic growth in a challenging environment marked by unprecedented inflation and its impact on consumption. Despite the significant headwinds, Dabur reported consolidated revenue of Rs 2,986.5 crore in Q2 FY’ 23, up from Rs 2,817.6 crore in the same quarter the previous year.

Dabur was able to mitigate the impact of unprecedented inflationary pressures through disciplined cost control, operational efficiencies, and prudent price increases across key product categories. Dabur reported a net profit of Rs 490.1 crore at the end of the second quarter.

Dabur India CEO Mohit Malhotra said, “While the challenging economic environment continued to be a concern and impacted the purchasing power, we are seeing green shoots of recovery with the onset of the festive season. The impact of inflationary pressures was more pronounced in the rural markets with demand growth in hinterland lagging urban markets for the first time in five quarters. However, we are hopeful of rural demand reporting a smart recovery in the coming quarters and we are investing ahead of the curve to ride this demand recovery by expanding our rural footprint by adding nearly 9,000 villages in Q2 FY’ 23 to take our total coverage to over 100,000 villages,”

Dabur is focused on creating shared value and is increasing capital expenditure, digitalization, and sustainability investments. Dabur has made rapid progress on the ESG front and has set ambitious goals for the future. In 2021-22, Dabur became the first Indian consumer goods company to become 100 per cent plastic waste neutral.

“Not one to rest on our past laurels, this year we have targeted to become Plastic Waste Positive, by collecting, processing and recycling 35,000 MT of post-consumer plastic waste pan-India. We are committed to creating circularity in the value chain to achieve a positive balance by 2030, besides becoming water positive by 2030 and carbon neutral by 2040,” Malhotra said.

Dabur's brands have continued to outperform the market, gaining market share across 95 per cent of product portfolio. Dabur increased its market share in the juices & nectars category by 410 basis points, while share in the digestives category increased by 270 basis points.

Chyawanprash market share increased by 120 basis points, and shampoo category share increased by 40 basis points. Dabur's market share in hair oils increased by 20 basis points. Dabur's strategy remains centred on innovation, with new product launches accounting for approximately 4 per cent of total sales.

Dabur’s foods & beverages business reported a strong 30 per cent growth. The beverages business ended the quarter with a jump of over 30 per cent while the foods business reported a 21 per cent growth.

The home care business was up nearly 21 per cent, while the toothpaste category, riding on strong performance of our flagship Dabur red paste, ended the quarter with an over 11 per cent growth.

The shampoo & post-wash business ended the quarter up 9 per cent. Dabur’s Ayurvedic OTC business also reported a growth of over 9 per cent during the quarter.

Dabur's international business reported a 12.3 per cent jump in constant currency terms, led by strong constant currency growths in Turkey (86 per cent), Nepal (25 per cent ) and Egypt (23 per cent ).
