Archies: Needs best wishes!

Nov 21, 2005

Greeting cards and gifts major, Archies, delivered mixed 2QFY06 (September quarter) numbers. The company reported a decent topline and an unenthusing bottomline growth due to margin contraction of 80 basis points along with lower other income and higher depreciation provisioning. Had the tax outgo not been lower, the bottomline picture would have had been bleaker.
