In Q1 FY23, Welspun spent ₹852 million towards capex.

Speaking about the performance, B K Goenka, chairman, Welspun Group, said: “We have delivered a relatively healthy operating performance in the face of an unusually tough macroeconomic environment characterised by unprecedented high input costs, rising inflation, and subdued consumer sentiments.

“During the quarter under review our domestic retail business, which has power brands like ‘Welspun’ and ‘Spaces’, again registered one of the highest quarterly revenues. In addition, all our brands continue to grow in excess of 40 per cent internationally. This operating milestone, achieved when overall demand conditions are seen to have been relatively soft, validates our strategy to invest in brands and direct-to-consumer (D2C) initiatives as growth drivers of the future.

“We have been strengthening our balance sheet by reducing our net debt over the past few years and that trend continued in the quarter under review with a further reduction. We continued our focus on embedding environment, social and governance in all facets of our activities. It is heartening to see Welspun receiving industry leading scores in CRISIL’s sustainability yearbook 2022, which reaffirms our efforts in this direction.”
