Project Launches, Existing Inventory Sales Aided Q4 Results, Says Godrej Properties
New project launches and sale of apartments in older projects helped Godrej Properties Ltd.’s March quarter performance, according to its Executive Chairman Pirojsha Godrej.
“We had a good mix of project launches during the quarter such as the Central Park in Pune where we sold around 600 apartments and Aqua in Bengaluru,” Godrej told BloombergQuint in an interview. “We also had good sales from our existing inventory in Mumbai and other cities which combined to make it the best quarter we ever had from a sales perspective.”
The company, he said, was not in “serious consideration” for any acquisition at the entity level, in response to news reports suggesting the Mumbai-based developer may buy Indiabulls Real Estate Ltd.
