FMCG major Britannia is likely to post a profit growth of 11.5 percent at Rs 261 crore against Rs 234 crore that it posted during the same period last year, a poll of analysts by CNBC-TV18 revealed.

The total income could jump over 8 percent at Rs 2,663 crore against Rs 2,456.1 crore.

At an operating level, the earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation is seen at Rs 388 crore, up over 14 percent against Rs 338.9 crore, while the operating margin is likely to be reported at 14.6 percent against 13.8 percent year on year.

The volume growth, a key metric for such companies, is likely to be 6 percent. Experts also highlight that it is important to watch margins due to lower niput costs.

Meanwhile, other factors to watch out for are outlook on raw material prices, scope for cost control, and performance in UP, Rajasthan, Gujarat and MP. Commentary on new launches and Middle East tensions are among others factors to be seen.
