Motilal Oswal Report

ITC Ltd.’s Q2 FY21 results were broadly in-line.

While approximately 12% decline in cigarette volumes was below our expectation of 7% decline, overall results were only marginally below expectations.

The lower margin agriculture business grew faster than anticipated, partially offsetting the slower-than-estimated growth in the higher-margin cigarettes business.

Management indicated in its presentation that the easing of restrictions in September 2020 enhanced the ability to meet demand in the cigarettes business.
