Commenting on Jaypore’s 100% takeover, Ashish Dikshit, ABFRL Managing Director, said, “Ethnic wear is the Indian fashion clothing market’s biggest segment. “While we have constructed a diverse portfolio of products across various sections, ethnic wear space is presently under-represented in our consumer bouquet,” he added.
Therefore, the suggested purchase is an excellent strategic addition to our portfolio and provides us with a strong base in a segment that is increasing in double digits, he said. Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail is component of the Aditya Birla Group’s USD 44.3 billion.
