New Delhi: ITC Ltd on Tuesday reported a consolidated net profit of Rs 3,816.84 crore for the fourth quarter ended March 2021.

The cigarette-FMCG-to-hotel major had posted a net profit of Rs 3,926.46 crore during the January-March quarter of the previous fiscal, according to the regulatory filing. The revenue from operations rose to Rs 15,404.37 crore during the quarter under review. It was Rs 12,560.64 crore in the corresponding period of 2019-20.

However, ITC said its results for this quarter are not comparable with the earlier period as it also includes the revenue of Sunrise Foods, which it had acquired on 27 July last year. "The financial results of the group and 'FMCG Others' of the quarter and the financial year ended on 31 March 2021 include those of Sunrise from 27 July 2020 and consequently are not comparable with previous periods," it said in the filing.

The total expenses of ITC stood at Rs 10,944.64 crore in Q4 FY 2020-21.

The sale of cigarettes recorded significant improvement during the quarter under review, while the ITC hotel business was severely impacted by the pandemic. Revenue from its cigarette business rose nearly 14.2 per cent to ₹5,859 crore for March quarter, compared with ₹5,130 crore in the corresponding period. On the other hand, the revenue from the hotel business reported a 38 per cent year-on-year decline to ₹287.77 crore in Q4FY21. Revenue of the remaining FMCG business fell 1.5 per cent to Rs 3,694.8 crore.

For the full fiscal year 2020-21, ITC's net profit was at Rs 13,389.80 crore, with a net profit of Rs 15,584.56 crore in FY20. Revenue from operations came in at Rs 53,155.12 crore, compared to Rs 51,393.47 crore in 2019-20.
