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.

With income from Rs 8,118 crore; it has a powerful network of 2,714 brand shops across 750 towns across the nation; including products such as Louis Philippe, Van Heusen, Allen Solly, Peter England and Pantaloons. The portfolio of International Brands includes — The Collective, Ted Baker, Ralph Lauren, American Eagle, and Simon Carter.

Do you also think this will help the Aditya Birla Group cement its position deep in the brand apparel market? Do tell us in the comments.
