The Company is focussing to maintain healthy margins through improved efficiencies as well as calibrated price increases without any adverse effect on volumes and market share. TTK continues to innovate and added 46 new SKUs during Q3FY22 across all product categories. In spite of expected demand disruptions due to Omicron, the company continues to maintain a positive demand outlook and plans to launch 63 new SKUs in Q4FY22. The company is comfortably placed on the liquidity front and carries free cash of ~ Rs.530 crore which would enable it to tide over the current volatile demand scenario.
