CTILs inherent resilience, strong customer relationships, diversified play, and focus on cash flows has helped tide through this period of turmoil. The companys thrust on digitization is yielding results, as demonstrated by the performance of the real estate business. The upcoming festive period presents an opportunity for our textiles business with a likely uptick in demand from the retail sector.
