The EBIDTA totalled Rs. 898 crores, which translates into 12 per cent growth on a comparable basis. The company’s PBT stood at Rs. 593 crores, witnessing a surge of 14 per cent.

Speaking about the performance, B.K.

We are taking all necessary steps to transform Welspun India into an institution which is system-driven and will accelerate the journey to achieve global leadership.”

It may be mentioned that Welspun has appointed EY as external consultants to thoroughly examine the supply chain. As a vertically integrated player, the company is moving towards producing all the Egyptian cotton products in-house i.e., from procuring cotton to the finished product. The slew of steps to be initiated include deployment of a dedicated resource in Egypt for sourcing of Egyptian cotton, increasing third party assurances such as Gold Seal from Cotton Egypt Association, vendor audit and DNA tests.
