The Impact Of Unusual Items On Profit

Importantly, our data indicates that GMM Pfaudler's profit was reduced by ₹335m, due to unusual items, over the last year. While deductions due to unusual items are disappointing in the first instance, there is a silver lining. When we analysed the vast majority of listed companies worldwide, we found that significant unusual items are often not repeated. And, after all, that's exactly what the accounting terminology implies. If GMM Pfaudler doesn't see those unusual expenses repeat, then all else being equal we'd expect its profit to increase over the coming year.
