Shoppers Stop did very well for Q3FY22. It reported a consolidated net profit of Rs.77 crore vs net loss of Rs.25 crore in Q3FY21. Revenue from operations was also up 33% at Rs.958 crore.
The company said that it “returned to profitability with a zero net debt.”
The company, over the future outlook, said that it is encouraged by the strong rebound and expects an accelerated growth trajectory now, driven by a robust recovery from the lockdown blues, accelerated small size store expansion, growth in the private-label mix, and an increased focus on high growth beauty business.
It expects the third wave to cause a small blip in the growth trajectory but says long term outlook is good.
