Segmental Overview


- Higher realizations consequent to improved contribution from value-added products like Mélange yarn enabled topline growth; this was despite marginal increase in sales volumes

- Successfully entered new markets such as Turkey, Malaysia, Morocco, Thailand and Denmark; apart from significantly ramping up volumes in niche markets such as Mauritius and Middle-East
