Profit after Tax (PAT) grew by 64.95 per cent to Rs 43.46 crore during fiscal 2017. Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBIDTA) also witnessed a growth of 36.74 per cent standing at Rs 101.19 crore. The export revenue of the company stood at Rs 72.24 crore. To boost its growth further, the company is eyeing for substantial number of EBOs across major cities of the Country by the end of 2020 which would be operated by a franchise model.

“Financial year 2016-17 was the most challenging year for the hosiery industry due to demonetization followed by escalating cotton prices across the world. But we have been able to record a higher growth in operating profit than the industry standards. It has been a satisfying year for us at Dollar Industries with the brand making inroads in newer territories and also consolidating its position in the existing hosiery markets in India and abroad,” Vinod Gupta, managing director, Dollar Industries Limited said.

“We are committed to maintain the topline growth of the company 15 to 20 per cent YOY. We are making efforts to improve EBITDA and PAT margins and aiming to achieve 15 per cent EBITA in next three years. We have achieved market penetration of 88 per cent across India which is a result of the team’s aggressive marketing and advertising strategy backed by superior product range, technology upgradation and capacity expansion,” Gupta said.

Dollar Industries is the only hosiery and knitwear company in India having fully integrated production unit which has spinning capacity of 400 tons per month.

We have received encouraging responses in the online platform both in terms of visibility and e-commerce. We will push the e-commerce sales up to the maximum percentage in our total turnover. Moreover ‘super premium category’ will be the prime focus for Dollar Industries Ltd in the coming days”, Gupta added.

The company is diversifying its product range and will soon introduce more variants in sleepwear, lounge wear, active wear and sportswear.
