    Shares in Titan Plunge On Weak Results
    The net profits of the company came in at a tepid Rs 215 crores a marginal growth due to sluggish consumer sentiments. Analysts had estimated much better results from the company.

    Net sales during the quarter ending March 31, 2015 declined 11.2 per cent to Rs 2,474 crore as against Rs 2,787 crore a year ago.

    Bhaskar Bhat, Managing Director of the Company stated that "The economic outlook for the year 2014-15 was quite good but improvement in consumer demand has been quite lukewarm. Our jewellery business was also adversely impacted due to regulatory changes and termination of the consumer friendly Golden Harvest Scheme.

    All our brands witnessed good growth during the first half but post Diwali season we have seen tapering of growths. The Company will however continue to invest in strategic initiatives taking into account our long term and sustainable growth plans."
