While responding to a question on the company's expansion plans for the future, Hook said that, they are intending to launch Giorgio Armani outlets in cities like Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad, and added that, all in all they intend to have 10-12 outlets in India, but did not reveal the time limit for the same.

He further emphasized that the firm is gearing up to pave a strong base for healthy trade in India, and added that, they have a strong game plan for expansion in India, and would have to control the urge to cash on imminent opportunities, as they are planning a long stay in the country.

Dearth of good retail locations in India, has been coming in the way of the firms expansion plans, he said and added that, the distribution channel in the country is lacking as there are not adequate number of departmental outlets and luxury retail points here. However, he did state that, the company is satisfied with its performance in India, till date.
