Commenting on the results, Mr. Deepak Nanda, Managing Director, Trident Ltd, said, “As we reflect on Trident Limited’s Q4 and FY24 results, it’s evident that amidst challenging macroeconomic conditions, our company has showcased year-on-year growth. The transformation journey that started in the last quarter of FY23 is continuing. Textiles saw price pressure due to subdued cotton prices, whereas Paper prices were under pressure due to heavy imports.
We remain confident of Trident Limited’s manufacturing prowess, as evidenced by increasingly better-order books and volumes in the home textiles segment. Our investments this year of INR 785 Cr. have added to our production capabilities which will start reflecting in numbers from the next year. We continue to focus on reducing Net Debt and strengthening the balance sheet continues. Despite the capex and loan towards buying cotton during the season, our Net Debt has not increased to that extent.

ESG is the need of the hour and the company continues to focus on sustainable projects including renewables as well as reducing fossil fuel. Focusing significantly on process control, the company re-implemented the latest SAP version for its Bath & Linen division.

Going forward, we shall continue focusing on improving our volumes, value-added products and ESG. With this foundation, Trident Limited stands poised to continue its journey of sustainable growth and innovation in the ensuing period”.
