Nykaa Falls By 49% Net Profit At Rs 8.56 Crores
Nykaa, an Indian beauty good online, announced a 49% drop in quarterly net profit on Friday, owing to rising expenditures and sluggish demand for its personal care and fashion products.
Nykaa's parent firm, FSN E-Commerce Ventures Ltd, has recorded severe profit declines in each of the three quarters since going public, owing to its attempts to double focus on promoting the brand as it emerges from the epidemic.
Due to the pandemic, the cosmetics-to-fashion platform, led by Falguni Nayar, stated its marketing expenditures in 2020 were unusually low since it did not invest as much on promotion. Total costs for the fourth quarter ended March 31, however, increased to Rs 979 crore from Rs 725 crore the previous year.
According to a regulatory filing, the company's consolidated net profit decreased to Rs 8.56 crore ($1.10 million) from Rs 16.88 crore a year ago.
