BENGALURU:  The Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) announced its Q2-2015 results on 13 October reporting a y-o-y  de-growth of 4.3 per cent in consolidated turnover to Rs 1,13,396 crore in Q2-2015 from Rs 1,18,439 crore in Q2-2014, and a growth of 5.1 per cent versus the immediate trailing quarter Q1-2015 turnover of Rs 1,07,905 crore. During HY-2015, the company’s revenue grew just 1 per cent to Rs 2,21,301 crore from Rs 2,19,054 crore in HY-2014.

 

The company’s organised retail segment contribution to RIL’s turnover grew from 2.93 per cent (Rs 3470 crore) in Q2-2014 to 3.67 per cent (Rs 4167 crore) in Q2-2015, registering a 20.1 per cent growth y-o-y. In Q1-2015, RIL’s retail segment contributed 3.71 per cent (Rs 3999 crore) to the company’s turnover registering a 4.1 per cent growth q-o-q.  In FY-2014, the segment had reported revenue of Rs 14,566 crore or 2.69 per cent of RIL’s turnover of Rs 5,41,599 crore. A Reliance earnings release for Q2-2014 says reports EBDIT figures for its retail segment at Rs 186 crore, recording a y-o-y EBDIT growth of 96 per cent.

This quarter, the company’s overall operational outlet count crossed 2000 with a presence in 155 cities of the country.  Some of the store formats under Reliance Retail Brands include Reliance Retail, Reliance Market, Reliance Fresh, Reliance Digital, Reliance Trends, Reliance Footprint and Reliance Jewels.

In the overall context of RIL numbers, its retail segment figures may seem small, but how many companies can boast of annual revenues of about Rs 15,000 crore plus, that the segment must cross this fiscal? Not too many.

According to an Economic Times report, in comparison, Tata group's retail divisions, including Titan, Croma, Trent and Landmark, had revenue of about Rs 17,000 crore. Kishore Biyani's Future Retail had revenue of Rs 11,336 crore in fiscal 2014.

India’s retail industry has been pegged at a quarter of India’s gross domestic product (GDP) about $525 million or Rs 31.5 lakh crore and is expected to double over the next five years leading to 2020. There is more than enough scope for the company’s organised retail segment to grow and contribute in a big way to RIL’s numbers over the next few years.
