Future Group aims to generate Rs15,000 crore revenue in FY14

KOLKATA: With only a couple of months left for the current fiscal year (2013-2014) to go, India’s largest retailer, Future Group, hopes to reach the target of achieving a turnover of Rs 6,000–7,000 crore.

On the sidelines of inaugurating a Big Bazaar Alcove store on 6 January, Group CEO Kishore Biyani highlighted that the group is looking at garnering a sales of Rs15,000 crore in FY14.

Biyani said by the end of current fiscal, revenues from Future Retail, Future Life Style and Future Consumer Enterprises are expected to be about Rs 11,000 crore, Rs 3,000 crore and Rs 1,500 crore respectively. 

Biyani said he was confident that the format like Big Bazaar, which has generated revenue of Rs 9,000 crore in the current fiscal, would register above 20 per cent growth year-on-year. “We expect that in the next fiscal revenue from Big Bazaar would be Rs 11,000 crore,” he said, adding the total number of stores would rise to 200 from the present 165 in the next 18 months.  

When asked about the apparel brands, Biyani said DJ&C, Lee Cooper as well as Bare could touch a sales turnover of Rs 500 crore by the next fiscal. Sales turnover of both DJ&C and Bare, at present, stands at about Rs 400 crore.
