"The watch business had a great year too with the recrafting strategy resulting in the highest topline growth in recent years, a jump in margins and the highest ever profit," Bhat said.

The eyewear business recorded a strong growth of 23 percent with the new pricing strategy showing results, he added.

"Skinn, our perfume brand as well as Taneira, Indian dress wear brand are scaling up in the coming year. Many steps are being taken to prepare the company for the future and set a foundation for healthy growth in the years to come," Bhat noted.
