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
- PBIT Margins improved from 6.2% in Q1 FY13 to 16.8% driven by cost optimization measures along with improving realizations resultant to enhanced product mix towards value-added products
- Commenced business with niche segments (high end buyers) and introduced value added products in China and Hong Kong
- 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

Terry Towel

- Lower sales volumes moderated topline performance - partly mitigated by improved realizations on account of higher sale of value-added products
- Despite lower sales volumes, profitability flat given various cost rationalization initiatives combined with change in product mix towards value-added products


- Higher realizations given improving product mix towards the copier segment enabled topline growth despite marginal decline in sales volumes
- PBIT margins improved to 18.4% from 15.8% in Q1 FY13 given stable costs and improved realizations as a result of enhanced product mix
- Encouraging results from Branding initiatives and launching of Trident Royal Touch Copier Paper
