Q1 Results: Bombay Dyeing Says Real Estate Revenue Lower On New Accounting Norms

Bombay Dyeing & Manufacturing Company Ltd. reported lower revenue for its real estate business due to new accounting norms.

Peruvemba said the company could have booked Rs 265 crore revenue in the real-estate segment during the three months ended June, if it had followed the previous accounting norms.

Key Earnings Highlights (Q1, YoY):

  • Revenue down 33 percent at Rs 397.5 crore.
  • Net loss of Rs 93.7 crore versus net loss of Rs 32.7 crore.

The textile-maker is targetting Rs 350 crore revenue in the current financial year and Rs 500 crore by the next. It’s also hopeful to cross Rs 500 crore in the retail segment, he said. Meanwhile, the company’s debt is now restructured and it is looking to prepay it ahead of time, Peruvemba said.
