CP business revenues were flat on a yoy basis, even after the company losing sales of ~Rs2bn due to lockdown. Margins expansion was curtailed at 210bps yoy in Q4 due to reallocation of overhead costs from EPC and revenue loss in last 15 days. Margin expansion was also aided by sharp cut in A&P spends.
