"We are encouraged by the strong demand in all our product categories in all channels. The athleisure and kids categories have particularly shown very promising growth and acceptance.

"We continue to strengthen management with the best talent and invest in digital transformation, technology and innovation in product design and development, marketing and brand building," Managing Director Sunder Genomal said.

There is also renewed focus in becoming more efficient and optimal in all aspects of the business, while at the same time taking care to eliminate any wasteful spend or activity, he added.

Over the outlook, Genomal said, "Given our strong and proven business model, wide product portfolio, efficient financial management and a very loyal customer base, we continue to remain very confident of our medium to long term prospects."
