We have made increased investments in digital& marketing, manpower& customer experience initiatives in order to strengthen our brand. This has impacted margins which we believe is a short term phenomenon.

Our focused cities performance and B2C contribution continues to witness healthy growth and is a testimony to our on-ground efforts and the acceptance of Metropolis Brand in the minds of consumers.

We have also been able to successfully complete the acquisition of Hitech Diagnostics during Q3 which will enable us to scale up our business, improve the B2C revenue contribution and tap the value end of the market.?

The company said its board has declared an interim dividend of Rs 8 per share for the financial year 2021-22.
