FMCG major Procter & Gamble Hygiene and Health Care Ltd (PGHHCL) has reported 8 per cent increase in its net profit for the January to March quarter at Rs 98 crore. The company said it clocked sales of Rs 760 crore, up 16 per cent compared to the same period a year ago.

The board of directors declared a special interim dividend of Rs 150 on every equity share of Rs 10. The record date for the dividend will be May 12.

"We delivered double-digit profitable growth for the third consecutive quarter this year. Our strategy of driving superiority, improving productivity, leading constructive disruption, and strengthening our organisation and culture has enabled us to consistently deliver results and continue to be the right strategies to deliver balanced growth in the long-term." Since the outbreak of pandemic, said Gopalan, the company has implemented robust health and hygiene standards across its sites. "Our qualified team of medical experts are working round-the-clock to support our people and their families on health-related queries." (ANI)
