Commenting on the business performance of 4Q FY 2022, Sudhir Sitapati, Managing Director and CEO, GCPL, said: We delivered a weak performance in 4Q FY 2022. Overall sales grew by 7% and our full-year sales grew in double-digits. However, this growth was driven by pricing. We continue to believe that with the relatively non-discretionary, mass pricing of our portfolio and very good performance on market shares, volume growth will return in the medium term. Our overall EBITDA declined by 9% (without one-offs) driven by unprecedented global commodity inflation and scale deleverage in Indonesia. PAT without exceptional items and one-offs declined by 4%.
From a category perspective, we saw a strong performance in Personal Care, which grew by 18%. Home Care delivered a weak performance and declined by 7%. From a geographical perspective, India grew at 9%. Our Africa, USA and Middle East business continued its robust growth trajectory, growing at 15% in INR and 14% in constant currency terms. Performance in our Indonesian business was weak, declining by 15% in INR and 16% in constant currency terms.
We continue to have a healthy balance sheet and our net debt to equity ratio continues to come down. We are on a journey to reduce inventory and wasted cost and are deploying this to drive profitable and sustainable volume growth across our portfolio through category development.”
