Margin growth to sustain

Robust savings pipeline and better mix of products will help

Hindustan Unilever (HUL) held a conference call to discuss the results for the quarter ended June 2017. It was addressed by CEO and Managing Director Sanjiv Mehta and CFO P B Balaji. Highlights:

HUL’s net sales have increased 5% to Rs 8529 crore in the June 2017 quarter over a year ago. Domestic business grew 6% but the underline volumes remained flat. The operating profit margins (OPM) inclined 176 basis points (bps) to 21.9%. Profit before tax and exceptional item rose 13% to Rs 1859 crore. Profit after tax was up 9% to Rs 1283 crore due to increase in the OPM. The factory in Assam is still ramping up.

Trade sentiment remained cautious, particularly in the run-up to the implementation of the goods and services tax (GST). Despite high promotional intensity, stock pipelines remained low and varied across categories, channels and geographies. Personal care and foods were disproportionately affected by thinning of trade pipelines, particularly of canteen store departments (CSD). Absence of CSD off-take from the beginning of June affected sales by 2% in the quarter. Despite the challenging circumstances, the quarter demonstrated resilience and profitable growth.

The home-care segment saw strong growth across mass and premium laundry section. Surf, the largest brand, maintained the robust volume-led growth momentum. However, the water business witnessed a muted quarter due to lower trade purchases and destocking before GST implementation.

There was broad-based growth across all brands in the personal wash business. Color cosmetics delivered yet another quarter of robust growth. Re-launched Fair & Lovely was well received.

Citra, an iconic naturals brand from Asia, was launched in the face-care segment in the quarter. After successful test market, Lever Ayush will be rolled out nationally. The ayurvedic range of personal-care products span across six categories of skin care, soap, hair care, hand wash, body lotions and oral care.

The refreshments division saw broad-based, volume-led growth. Tea displayed double-digit growth due to continuing leveraging of a differentiated portfolio across different parts of India. Coffee and ice creams and frozen desserts also delivered healthy performance. The focus of the foods segment continued to be on market development, with soups and jams driving growth in the category.

Multiple natural variants were introduced in existing brands across categories. As many as 12 stock-keeping units (SKUs) were launched under Citra in the face-care segment.

Sections of trade, particularly wholesalers and small retailers, are still not clear about GST rules, delaying return to normalcy. Trade is being compensated where-ever there is rise in cost due to GST. All the distributors are 100% GST-compliant.

Pre GST, the turnover was gross of excise. Post GST, the turnover is net of GST. Thus, the reported turnover will be lower by750 bps. There will be no impact on absolute earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (Ebitda) and EPS. The Ebidta margins will be higher by 150 bps due to cost cuttings. Savings will be nearly 6% of the turnover.

A robust saving pipeline and mix of products will help the margins to sustain. The aim is to keep improving savings year after year. A gradual improvement in rural demand is likely. Stocks with trade are expected to build back to normative levels over the next few months. Input costs will remain stable.

The impact of GST on organized players has to be watched GST. GST-led pricing actions (more to come in coming months) have been initiated in the commitment to pass on net benefit to consumers.
