Hindustan Unilever Earnings Review

Hindustan Unilever has delivered a decent set of numbers for the Apr-Jun period, in the context of disruptions due to the second wave. Going forward, India’s largest FMCG brand remains cautiously optimistic about the demand recovery. Their focus firmly remains behind delivering volume led competitive growth and margins in a healthy range. Rural demand which was impacted during the second wave has recovered and is now growing ahead of urban. Domestic sales grew by 12% from the previous year. Most brokerages were penciling in a profit growth in the range of 7-15 per cent YoY while revenue projections ranged between 11-20 per cent. 

Discretionary products and out of home products might continue to face some pressure, however, they do not form a major portion of the revenue. A strong balance sheet and a diverse portfolio with market leadership in many segments gives HUL an advantage. While the ongoing environment remains uncertain, HUL is well-placed to continue to post resilient growth in topline and bottomline going forward.
