In a press release, MCFL said its revenue fell 5.9 per cent from a fiscal ago period to Rs 68.8 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2015.

According to MCFL, revenues have been impacted, as it includes adjustments for stock correction and unsold inventory returned primarily from the woolen segment from large format stores.

“Last year it was considered as of end of the quarter and due to the new accounting policy revenue has been impacted to the tune of Rs. 53.3 million in the quarter under review,” it explained.

MCFL further added that EBIDTA has been impacted due to increase in advertising & marketing expenses which is part of the company's strategy for pan-India brand visibility as well as penetration in the South India.

“This would help the company in the long run and also the advertisement expenses are expected to rationalise over the course of the year,” MCFL added.
