Motilal Oswal Report

We interacted with the management of Hindustan Unilever Ltd. for an update on overall market conditions. Here are the key takeaways:

  • With various parts of India progressively opening up, the management believes the impact from the second Covid-19 wave would have peaked in May 2021 and things will progressively get better.

  • The outlook from June 2021 onwards is positive, barring the emergence of a third Covid wave.

  • The increase in store operating hours is also a positive development.

  • Rural continues to do better than urban, despite experiencing a higher impact from the pandemic in Q1 FY22 versus last year.
