1)Quarter 1 witnessed de-stocking which resulted in off take deferment of certain customers which resulted in revenues decreasing by 12.35% YoY to 43.18 crores.

2)Even though there were no loss of customers, the company refrained from a couple of customers who were financially stressed.

3)The company also witnessed a sharp contraction in EBITDA margins due to higher raw material costs of

cotton, higher job works costs, and lower absorption of fixed costs on account of volume loss. The EBITDA

margin stood at 15.13% vs 22.38% YoY.

4)As the industry is yet to witness the commencement of restocking, the company has reduced its guidance of 63 million sales volume in FY18 to a flattish growth. (FY17 volumes stood at 56 million, Q1FY18 volumes stood at 12 million)

Any reduction in duty drawback or ROSL post September will result in further downside of estimates.

6)The management is seeing traction in sales Q3 onwards as it is a festive season which will lead to higher demand, and is hopeful of a pickup in restocking.

7)The company has expanded from 68 to 90 million metres and are confident to utilise full capacity by 2020 as demand improves in the next 3 years. Also, raw material price of cotton is expected to go down on account of good monsoon. Global expansion is underway and new stores in UAE and Europe to open soon.
