Chairman CS Nopany said, “Our performance during the quarter is reflective of the challenging business environment currently prevailing in the sector.”

“Multiple headwinds led to a lag in revenue momentum however, improved contribution from higher margin products resulted in sustaining operating profitability, he too added.

“The newer capacities for producing value added cotton mélange and cotton blended dyed yarn added last year have started functioning at optimal levels,” Nopany informed.

Sutlej Textiles informed that it achieved higher output of high margin value added cotton mélange and cotton blended dyed yarn and also that higher output of value added products will strengthen its margins and profitability.
