Commenting on the performance during Q1FY22, Mr. Abhishek Lodha, MD & CEO, Macrotech Developers Ltd. said, "India has suffered tremendously in this quarter due the 2nd wave of Covid-19 - however, with increasing vaccination and good governance, we are on the recovery path. The company took a leadership role in responding to the crisis and we will continue to focus strongly on our responsibilities to the nation. We are on a disciplined growth path with expansion across MMR and Pune region. There are significant growth opportunities in these markets for us given our strong brand and track record of delivering quality product. We have been able to reduce our debt significantly with consolidated net debt reduced by over INR 3600 crores. for the quarter enabling to pursue faster growth. We are focused on housing and digital infrastructure (warehousing, data centres, and industrial parks) and both these asset classes are benefitting significantly from the macro trends in our economy. During the quarter we have expanded our residential reach in micro-markets such as 'Western Suburbs MMR', 'Eastern Suburbs MMR', and 'Eastern Pune' by executing four JDAs with a combined area of 3.3 million square feet and estimated GDV (sales value) of ~INR 3500 crores. We believe that housing is at the start of a multi-year bull run which will see growth in prices as well as volume. We remain committed to ensuring that every Indian can have a high quality home to enable their families to fulfil their potential."

Number of ongoing discussions around our digital infrastructure park at Palava strengthens our belief in this space. Recently, we concluded another sale transaction for ~22 acres to Flyjac Logistics, subsidiary of Hitachi Transport System Group, a Japanese 3-PL company. We have been approached by number of long term investors for strategic partnership to capture this opportunity in the country."
