The gross margin percentage improved to 23% from 10% in last year as a timely purchase of raw materials at competitive prices and the global shortage of imported fine-count yarns helped improve margins.

Furtermore, KTML has sufficient stock for rest of the year, hence margins are expected to be maintained at curent level for FY2021.

KTML is also planning capacity expansions in their spinning and weaving divisions. This is expected to increase operational efficiencies and gross margins of the company in long term.

Moreover, a decline of 45.6% YoY in finance cost further provided much-needed respite to the bottom line due to lower short-term borrowings as well as the lower interest rates.
