Net profit for Q4 in the case of Marico was up 13.22% at Rs257cr and down -18.93% sequentially. The profit growth was largely on account of Rs18 crore exceptional loss in Mar-21 quarter. This loss was on account of goodwill impairment on consolidation of investment in South Africa. Rural sales were weak, as is evident in sequential fall in sales. This is due to high levels of rural inflation and compression in rural incomes. Net margins at 11.89% in Mar-22 quarter was better compared to 11.28% in the Mar-21 quarter.
