Trent: Expanding base...

Jan 20, 2003

The Tata Group retailing arm, Trent Limited, has reported a 46% growth in 3QFY03 topline. However, an over 83% growth in purchase of finished goods led to expenses increasing at a faster clip than sales. Consequently, the company's operating margins have dipped to 7.7% during the quarter.
