Reported gross profit margin contracted 409 bps to 44.7 per cent. However, reported earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (ebitda) margin expanded 147 bps to 12.2 per cent.
Gross margins during the quarter were impacted due to full quarter impact of glass price increase (glass price increase took place in mid of Q3FY23) as well as regional mix. Despite this reduction in gross margins, the company was able to maintain its EBITDA margin through multiple cost optimization efforts and improved productivity, the company said.
The management said the company has seen strong growth in Mansion House Flandy, Flavoured Brandy range; Flandy is currently available only in Telangana and Puducherry and will be launched in other regions soon, it added.
Tilaknagar Industries is predominantly engaged in the business of manufacturing and sale of Indian Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL) and its related products. The company is the maker of India’s largest selling premium brandy i.e. Mansion House Brandy. It has more than 15 brands across brandy, whisky, gin, rum and vodka.
Consumption of IMFL in India continues to rise on account of increasing urbanisation. There has been far-reaching acceptance towards consumption of alcoholic drinks in urban areas. Rising incomes have led to increasing adoption of the pub and cocktail culture in the urban areas, which has also enhanced the demand for alcoholic beverages. In addition, more than 10 million people get added each year to the eligible alcohol drinking population, making India potentially one of the highest growing alcohol market, the company said.
