Godrej Consumer Products Ltd (GCPL) has posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 127.71 crore for the second quarter ended September 30, 2011.
During the July-September quarter last fiscal, the company had reported a net profit of Rs 131.07 crore.
GCPL said the results are not comparable on account of some acquisitions.
In a filing to the BSE, the company said its consolidated net sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2011 stood at Rs 1,186 crore against Rs 961.54 crore in the corresponding quarter last fiscal.
“The figures for the current quarter and half-year (April-September, 2011-12) are not comparable with those of the corresponding period of the previous year because of acquisitions and amalgamations made since then,” the filing said.
Godrej Consumer Products announced an interim dividend of Re 1 per share (100 per cent on the shares of face value of Re 1 each) for 2011-2012, to be paid on November 14.
The company’s scrips were trading at Rs 404, down 1.45 per cent from the previous close on the BSE.
