A clear focus on catering to all economic strata of society, delivering in accordance with the current market trends and making strategic acquisitions globally has reinforced our market position as a global player in the Branded Apparel Segment and in-turn contributed substantially to our top-line and bottom-line.

Our Consumer Textiles, Luxury Textiles and Total Wardrobe Solutions segments continue to contribute substantially to revenues. We have launched a new brand “World Player” in the economy segment of the Ready-to-Wear market, in South India and it has been very well received. We expect volumes to improve and eventually margins for this brand, as we spread across India. We also plan to launch “Kruger” in the Casual Premium segment, towards the end of this financial year.

Having made strategic international acquisitions, we are now focusing on capitalizing and deriving value from the back-end and front-end synergies. Our International business has turned EBITDA positive and we expect greater contributions in the coming quarters.
