The dip in DMart’s sequential numbers is largely attributable to the rise of the Omicron COVID variant in January 2022. Moreover, post the Omicron wave, the eCOmmerce business has slowed down on its growth trajectory. However, the momentum on the brick-and-mortar stores has picked up. The March 2022 numbers are well above the March 2021 numbers, particularly due to the FMCG business recovering well.

What the Management says

Neville Noronha, CEO & Managing Director of Avenue Supermarts Limited, said that January 2022 started extremely well but then the Omicron wave of Covid‐19 reduced the momentum. These waves typically hurt the high margin and discretionary items more. As is the trend of the past, recovery does take 40‐50 days after restrictions are removed or anxiety of a Covid wave recedes. 

March 2022 month again had robust recovery and very satisfactory like for like growth vis a vis March 2021. In general, the quarter performance and past two waves of stop‐start‐stop give us extreme confidence on the resilience of the business to recover in the short term.
