Archies: Best wishes working...

Feb 23, 2006

Greeting cards and gifts major, Archies, delivered a decent set of numbers for 3QFY06 (December quarter). The company reported an enthusing topline growth, but margin contraction to the extent of 70 basis points clubbed with lower other income resulted in bottomline growing at a relatively slower pace. Had the tax outgo been at the same levels as in 3QFY05, the bottomline picture would have been bleaker.
