Textiles major Arvind has posted a 176 per cent growth in consolidated net profits for the first quarter ended June 30, 2011, at Rs 61 crores as against Rs 22 crores in the corresponding period last year. The company attributed the growth in profits to a rise in revenues coupled with improvement in operating margins in textiles and brands and retail business. There was a revenue growth of 44 per cent in the branded apparel and retail business segments and 37 per cent revenue growth in textile business. EBIDTA increased by 47 per cent at Rs 175 crores as against Rs 119 crores for the corresponding quarter of the previous year. Commenting on the results, Arvind’s director and CFO Jayesh Shah said, "The growth across all the product segments is led by the growth in domestic market on the back of strong B2C business model which Arvind has created.”

Its revenues for the quarter rose by 39 per cent at Rs 1,200 crores against Rs 863 crores in the corresponding period of the previous year. Growth across all product segments is led by growth in the domestic market on the back of a strong B2C business model which Arvind has created.
