Consolidated Results:

Revenue from Operations for the Quarter at Rs.1761 Crores, higher by 4%

Group Net Profit for the Quarter at Rs 184 Crores, up by 19%

Tata Global Beverages Ltd. today announced its results for the quarter ended September 2018.

Revenue from Operations increased by 7% after excluding the impact of business exit as compared to the corresponding Quarter of the Previous Year.

Profit before Tax at Rs 189 crores is marginally lower as compared Rs. 196 crores to corresponding Quarter of the Previous Year due to higher commodity cost and higher investment behind brands and listings.

Group Net Profit for the Quarter at Rs.184 cr is higher by 19% to corresponding Quarter of the Previous Year on account of lower tax and higher profits from Associates and Joint Ventures.

The Quarter saw continued support on innovative products and initiatives to strengthen our core brands in the International Business and good volume growth in the India Branded Business. Plantation business was impacted by lower realization and lower crop.

Some of the key business updates for the Quarter are:
