Commenting on the results, Mr. Mohit Jain, Managing Director, DFM Foods Ltd. said "this quarter the company clocked it's all time highest revenue 0fRs.134.8 crore up 9.2% versus the corresponding quarter and 14% on a sequential basis. Ihe growth in sales was attributable to an increase in sales of Rings, Curls and the roll out of Fritts, which was made possible with the commissioning ofthe brownfield expansion in Sep. The trend in sales in the current year has been extremely encouraging with sales having increased every successive quarter.

The main highlight during the current quarter was the launch ofour latest offering - 'Fritts'. Ihe product which had been test marketed during Q2 and had met with a positive feedback was rolled out starting Oct on a Pan-India basis. The same was also supported with television advertising on cartoon channels. Given the increasing trend in monthly sales during Q3, we are excited about its future prospects.

Apart from the advertising ofFritts, the company continued to invest behind its brand mascot for Rings named 'RingBling' which had been launched during Q2. Through this animated character we hope to not only difierentiate Crax Rings fiom competition but also build a fitrther connect with our core consumers, the young children.

On the distribution front we continued our eflorts to deepen penetration using the hub and spoke model particularly in the North, Additionally we also worked on bringing about necessary changes in our distribution model to improve market servicing.

With Curls and now Fritts forming an integral part ofour product portfolio, we feel confident of seeing more consistency in our sales unlike the past where we have experienced some volatility. We are now less dependent on Rings and in turn the response to consumer promotions. Instead, growth today is more diversified, comingfiom both Rings and new launches.

As we move into the last quarter of the . financial year, we hope to carry forward the sales momentum seen in Fritts in Q3 and close the year at a higher growth rate than that seen for the first 9 months."
