KPR Mill Limited (KPR Mill), one of South India's leading vertically integrated apparel company, announced its results for the quarter and half year ended September 30, 2008.

KPR Mill's distinct operational model has enabled the Company to deliver superior earnings, thus positioning itself as a sustainable “margin leader” in its domain.

The following strategies of the Company ensure implementation of costeffective processes, which further lead to strengthening of operating efficiencies:
o Access to cheap wind energy, which results in reduced costs on fuels along with self-sufficiency in terms of power.

o Unique labour model, which helps in enhancing productivity, as well as to optimise operating costs.

o Purchase of top grade raw material at cheap prices in the peak season which improves production efficiency.

Commenting on the financial results, Mr. P Nataraj, Managing Director, KPR Mill Limited, said: “KPR Mill has delivered a steady performance in the current reporting period. We have tried to mitigate the impact of the concerning environmental factors as much through our cost-effective operating strategy. Integration of our on-going expansion plans would help to further ensure better operational abilities going forward.

Though the industry is at a crossroad because of factors like high cotton prices, slowing growth overseas and acute power shortages, we expect that our strong order book and unique business model would keep us insulated to that extent.”
