But the promise ended there. With total operating expenses shooting up by 75% at Rs.592 crore and a 60% rise in interest outgo, the company was pushed into the red. It ended Q1FY12, with a net loss of Rs.1.51 crore as against a net profit of Rs.9.29 crore in Q1FY11.During the quarter the company’s expenses towards purchase of traded goods jumped 92%, employee costs were up 89% and its lease rent and hire charges were up 88%. In current Q1, the company opened 3 Shoppers Stop outlets, 3 Crossword stores, 3 M.A.C stores and 1 Hypercity and Home Stop outlet. Despite the losses, the company is sure to remain in the limelight. The big trigger is the announcement of FDI hike multi retail. And once that news comes in, traders might not pay too much attention to this loss. But once the news gets settled, given the rate hikes and inflationary pressures, one will have to see have Q2 pans out before making a long term call.
