Management view on performance in Q1 FY14

Commenting on the Q1 FY14 results, Mr. Rohtas Goel, CMD, Omaxe Limited said :

“The consolidated income from operations for the quarter stood at Rs. 401.66 crore as against Rs. 368.30 crore in the corresponding quarter of last year, registering a growth of 9.1%.

Fresh bookings continued to remain steady with 1.66 mn sq. ft. of booking during the quarter ended June 30th, 2013. The sales have been good despite the challenging economic scenario. The continued trust of our customers in tier II and III cities, where we have a vast presence, has helped us remain steady. We are focusing on execution of ongoing projects while continuing with new launches in order to widen our product portfolio and reach out to maximum people in these cities. We recently signed up with The Intercontinental Hotel Group (Holiday Inn) for a hotel in Omaxe New Chandigarh and have strategically targeted destinations like Bhiwadi, Bahadurgarh, Greater Noida for studio apartments catering to corporates and tourists

Management view on Business Outlook & Future Strategy

Commenting on the outlook for current fiscal, Mr. Rohtas Goel, CMD, Omaxe Limited, said:

“On account of sliding GDP, higher interest rate and falling rupee, the current fiscal may pose enough challenge for every sector, including real estate. Temporary squeezing measures by the RBI has made consumers, industry and banks cautious in their approach and the same may lead to slowdown in investment cycle in the forthcoming quarters. With our focus on Tier II and Tier III cities we are targeting the middle-income segment with affordable housing in cities like Bahadurgarh, Rohtak, Lucknow, Chandigarh, etc., as an alternative to NCR. On the financial front, we remain robust with consistent internal accruals, thereby helping us remain comfortable with our debt.”
