Though consumer sentiment continues to remain subdued largely due to high interest rates and inflation, we are confident about the long term and will continue to invest in brand building,  retail and in improving operational efficiencies.''

Shares of the company declined Rs 4.8, or 1.25%, to trade at Rs 378.20. The total volume of shares traded was 61,593 at the BSE (Friday).
