Vardhman reported strong margins of 24% for Q2FY17, Q3FY17 on account of benefits of low cost cotton inventory. However, due to depletion of low cost inventory, margins for the quarter fell 420 bps YoY to 17.1%. Average cotton prices (Shankar-6) rose 26% YoY in Q4FY17 resulting in an increase in input costs.
