Turnover increased by 20 percent to Rs 2.6 billion in 2010 compared
to Rs 2.1 billion in the corresponding nine month period in 2009.
Sales were mainly driven by increased export turnover.
This growth, combined with the Group’s increase in market share in
many of its segments, have helped triple Group profit after tax to Rs
160.9 million for the nine months ending December 31 from Rs 51.9
million for the same period a year ago.
“We see new growth opportunities, not just in our core business area
and but also in adjacent segments. The new investments we are making in
machinery over the next few months will bring cutting edge technology to
the country and will ensure that we will continue to give our export and
local customers a competitive advantage in their packaging. It will also
continue to position Printcare as one of the leading providers of
printing and packaging in the South Asian region,” Managing Director K R
