Q1 Results: V-Mart’s Revenue Lifted By New Stores, Higher Footfalls
V-Mart Retail Ltd.’s first-quarter revenue was aided by the launch of new outlets and increased footfalls in existing stores despite a consumption slowdown, the company’s Chief Financial Officer Anand Agarwal said.
The company witnessed “good growth” in same-store sales as well as robust performance of new stores for the three-month period ended June, Agarwal told BloombergQuint, adding that the company received good traction across all geographies, especially in its core markets of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
He, however, expects the early part of the second quarter to be impacted by monsoon.
