Glaxo Smithkline Consumer Healthcare's (SKB) 2QCY11 adjusted PAT grew 15% YoY to INR825m (against our estimate of INR873m). Net sales grew ~22%, led by 16% volume growth. Biscuit volumes grew 49% and exports grew 57%. Input cost pressure drove a 300bp decline in gross margins and 34% higher ad spend led to a 150bp decline in EBITDA margins of 15.1%. SKB increased MFD prices by an average of 2.3% in July to recover some of the lost margins.
Foodles grew just 13% (22% in 1HCY11). GSK launched Horlicks Gold at a 30% premium to the base Horlicks variant.
New launches yet to make significant impact; Valuations rich for a single category business; Downgrade to
We believe SKB is well placed to capture healthy growth in the MFD space and a strong rebound from 1QCY11 is testament to that. However, with competitive intensity increasing in this segment, SKB will have to continue to spend aggressively, which may reduce the frequency of new product introductions. Margin pressures are likely to persist and though we do not expect a severe gross margin contraction to continue, firm input costs and a changing product mix
(rising share of low margin non-MFD) will restrict meaningful margin expansion in future. We are revising our estimates downwards by 1-2% to factor in lower margins and lower sales growth in Foodles and Nutribar. Our CY11 MFD volume growth estimates are revised from 10.5% to 11%. Limited success of new product launches (failure of Chilled Dood,
Nutribar and Horlicks Asha and moderating growth in Foodles) and margin pressure…...

Herani * Indus Institute of Higher Education (IIHE) ABSTRACT This paper addresses the concern that monopolies arise naturally out of the free market. An attempt is made to compare and contrast two theories of monopoly economic and political monopoly that this is not true. This paper further demonstrates that the two theories of monopoly have their separate roots in two opposite theories of competition: perfect competition and competition as rivalry.

Besides, the paper also delves the two theories of competition and monopolies are derived from collectivist and individualist political philosophy. It illustrates how perfect competition and economic monopoly have undermined economists' understanding of the actual nature of both competition and monopoly.

...Party (BJP) took over the government. Ongoing tensions with Pakistan escalated to the brink of nuclear war in 2002. At the same time, India is a growing democracy with a population reaching a billion. Indian mass culture has also expanded, as its commercial film industry, known as "Bollywood," becomes the most productive in the world. Some artists take inspiration from or appropriate actual elements of local mass culture; some also address current events in their works.

They question Western modernist ideas such as formalism from the standpoint of working in a postcolonial society that has recently emerged from beneath the shadow of a Western power. In fact, India is at the forefront of postcolonial critique, with theorists such as Arjun Appadurai, Homi K. Bhabha, and Gayatri Spivak emerging from its shores. With the blossoming of art and theory in the South Asian country, artists and writers increasingly find......

...September 2009, shop owner and father-of-three Ravinder Singh (known as Ravi) was stabbed kidnapped and robbed of his shop takings before being left for dead in a quiet street in Hanwell, West London. Ravi’s terrifying ordeal started about 1025pm just after he locked up Dallas Liquor Mart on the Uxbridge Road, the family-owned off-licence. He walked around to the street to the back of the shop and was about to get into his white Mercedes Sprinter van when he was jumped by three black men in their mid-20s all wearing three-quarter length high-visibility jackets. . Ravinder & Ranjit Virdi They shoved him into the front seat of his van and drove a few hundred yards around the corner, stopping on Hatfield Road where they demanded money. It was only now that Ravinder realised he had been stabbed twice in the chest. He insisted they take him to a hospital but his pleas were ignored him and they took £900 of blood-stained money. One of the men then got out of the vehicle. Instead of letting Ravi go, they drove onto Grosvenor Road stopping at the junction with Uxbridge Road. Desperate to get help, Ravi saw two pedestrians crossing the road in front of him and sounded the horn, trying to get their attention. The men began hitting him and shoved him into the foot well. One of them held a knife up to his eye: “You do anything like that again and I’m going to cut your eye out,” he shouted, before holding the knife against Ravinder’s back. Ravinder knew that the only thing he......

Motorcycle Accidents in India

...must ride at night, our can reduce your risk by enhancing your conspicuity. Because accident are more likely to happen in night time Using of running headlights can also help avoid accidents. Running lights are two lights, usually placed about half a metre apart, but at the same height. The use of running lights during daytime is relatively uncommon on motorcycles in India. As with the use of colors and fluorescence, the daytime use of running lights and headlights aims to intensify the contrast between motorcycle and the background, allowing the motorcyclist to be seen from a greater distance compared to motorcyclist who do not use running lights during daytime. Accordingly, Donne and Fulton (1985) and Fulton et al (1980; both cited in Ravinder, 1987) found that daytime use of running lights significantly increased the conspicuity of motorcycles Due to increasing number of accidents and injuries the government is enforcing strict safety laws. For instance, in India laws have been enforced to regulate accidents like, Driving without holding an effective driving licence results in 3 months of jail or 100 dollars fine or both, Driving by an under-aged person (Minor driving vehicle) results in licence ban and 100 dollar fine and (i) Disqualified person driving a vehicle or (ii) applying for or obtaining a driving licence or (iii) seeking a licence without disclosing endorsements made on driving licence preciously held also results in licence ban and 500 dollars fine (All......

"What weadopted in 2007 was not really a change in strategy but an evolution of our strategy,"he insists.Surely not? Over the past decade, Samsung has clung to its premium positioning, with products that emphasised design, aesthetics and cutting-edge technology and pricesthat were commensurately higher. Until now. For the first time, it is movingdownwards, so much so that industry observers believe Samsung may go after themasses much like its arch rival LG Electronics did until a couple of years ago:already, Samsung flat televisions are among the cheapest in the market.Samsung India Deputy Managing Director, Ravinder Zutshi, vehemently rejects the price warrior tag, though. "Samsung is not a price warrior but today we are ascompetitively priced as our rivals. The focus is on expansion and deeper market penetration," he says.So, which is it?

Youth Suicide in India

...YOUTH SUICIDE IN INDIA Ravinder Kaur, a professor at IIT Delhi in her case study observed that according to WHO, India has one of the highest Suicides rates worldwide, with about 40% people who commit suicides being under the age of 30.the focus has been on farmer Suicides as these have political resonance and their causes can often be traced to economic crises and government policies. The death of a farmer is often the death of a breadwinner impacting immediately the livelihood of his or her dependants. Though youth Suicides outnumber farmers farmer Suicides, little attention has been paid to the risk factors and the causes of Suicides in the demographic. Attention to student Suicides is paid only around Board exams, when stress levels across the Indian urban middle class are high or when a student at an IIT,IIM or the AIIMS, commit Suicides .Institutions conduct internal inquiries and come up with the usual factors of stress, inability to perform, parental pressure or issues of failed personal relationships.
