Dabur India reported a 21.98 per cent decline in its consolidated net profit in the fourth quarter of the previous fiscal.

In a statement on Thursday, the company said it suffered losses worth ₹294.34 crore during the period due to issues such as “inflationary headwinds”. It added that its revenue crossed ₹10,888.68 crore in the last fiscal.

Exceptional costs

“Dabur braved the inflationary headwinds to end the quarter with a 0.4 per cent growth in net profit before exceptional items at ₹379 crore. An impairment of goodwill in respect of Hobi Kozmetic, Turkey, amounting to ₹85 crore was provided due to the steep devaluation in Turkish currency over the past one year. Including this impairment, reported net profit for the fourth quarter of 2021-22 stood at ₹294 crore,” the company said in an earnings statement.
