Commenting on the results, Neville Noronha, CEO & Managing Director, Avenue Supermarts Limited, said, “FY 2021 has been a challenging year for our business. The year began amidst a strict lockdown post the emergence of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) towards the end of the last financial year. The economy gradually opened post May 2020 and the second half of the year was progressing towards recovery. However, a much stronger second wave of Covid-19 infections hit the country towards the end of FY 2021 and has once again resulted in significant disruption to our business as several cities and towns have announced restrictions.”

During FY 2021, the chain saw degrowth across key financial parameters of Revenue, EBITDA and PAT. However, Q4 margins did indicate revival of discretionary spends not seen in previous three quarters, the company said. In addition, the company commenced servicing four new cities FY21: Ahmedabad, Pune, Bangalore and Hyderabad.

As of March 31, 2021, the company had 234 operating stores with Retail Business Area of 8.82 million sq. ft. across Maharashtra, Gujarat, Daman, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, NCR, Chhattisgarh and PunjaB.
