Titan Company Ltd Chairman Speech

Dear Shareholders,

These are unprecedented times. The second wave of Covid-19 has had a tragic impact all around us. We have lost many of our colleagues to the virus. The suffering has been immeasurable. On behalf of Titan, we offer our deepest condolences to those who have lost their family members.

To me, the abiding memory of last year was the image of the retail sales officer working in the stores of Titan Company. Wearing the mask and the shield for hours together, never losing patience, always showing her smile, relentlessly presenting the gold standard in safety, among the best in the retail industry. It is that stringent safety protocol, sitting on top of the exceptional relationships that each one of them had built with the millions of our customers, that powered the recovery starting early Q2. We owe them so much.

Amidst all the trials and tribulations of FY21, heartening stories of hope and courage continued to emerge: women and men demonstrating extraordinary resilience and dedication, going above and beyond their call of duty. The Titan family is full of such extraordinary people like the shop floor and retail employees proudly showcased in this year's annual report, other employees who innovated wonderfully even while navigating the challenges of working from home, all our retail and distribution partners and their employees, and vendor partners and their employees in whose hearts Titan forever continues to beat. I would like to thank each one of them for their amazing commitment in keeping themselves and others safe while helping us to continue our operations, serve our customers, and support our communities. Their contribution in this unprecedented year is truly incredible and inspiring.

It was only fair that Titan Company took care of this large family during an economically and emotionally challenging year. From pay protection to job protection to hospitalisation insurance and helplines for the employees, from soft loans to salary support to transit homes and to retail, distribution and vendor partners, your Company reached out and made life comfortable for the thousands of people directly and indirectly dependent on it. The multiple-stakeholder approach was even more evident in the manner in which we dealt with our NGO partners and our programmes. Despite the challenging times, Titan continued to honour its commitment towards the community. Upliftment of the girl child, the skilling of people and helping Indian artisans preserve and market their heritage remained close to our heart. This year we continued to support CSR

Our profit before tax (PBT) for the year ended March 2021, was `_1,233 crore (after exceptional items) compared to `_2,105 crore in the previous year. projects including Mission Gaurav where we partnered with Tata Trusts to help more than 3 lakh guest workers across four states to ride out the COVID-19 challenge over a six-month period. Let me now come to the business performance during Financial Year 2020-21.

Private Final Consumption Expenditure (PFCE), a vital indicator to gauge household spending in the country and the largest component of GDP, fell by 54% in the first quarter of FY21, compared to a 56% growth in the same period in the previous fiscal. Pay cuts and layoffs across the country and a drop in consumer confidence, with people preferring to save money, continued to erode demand. With our products being in the category of discretionary spends and consumer sentiment severely affected across geographies, our businesses faced significant headwinds.

I am pleased to report that against this challenging economic backdrop, Titan delivered a satisfactory financial performance: revenue from operations stood at `_20,602 crore (including bullion sale) in FY21, compared to `_20,010 crore in FY20. I would like to thank all our customers who continued to give us their patronage even in the midst of this pressure on discretionary consumption and enabled this exceptional recovery.

The war-on-waste programme begun in H2 of FY20 was a success, enabling us to optimise our costs and free precious working capital across different departments. In addition, we exercised discretionary cuts on various expense heads due to the lower level of activity. The Company was also successful in negotiating fairly significant waivers and reductions for rentals in these disruptive times. These proactive measures enabled us to safeguard our profitability to a considerable extent, despite the market contraction in the first half of the year. Our profit before tax (PBT) for the year ended 31st March 2021, was `_1,233 crore (after exceptional items) compared to `_2,105 crore in the previous year. On account of the various measures undertaken during the year, your Company ended the year with a comfortable cash position and the same should take care of any unforeseen eventualities in the current year.

What makes last year's performance especially creditworthy, is that it was achieved with complete adherence to the highest safety and hygiene standards, without compromising in any way the well-being of our customers, employees, associates, and all stakeholders. Despite substantial drop in profitability for the year, your Board has agreed to retain the dividend rate at the FY20 level (`_4 per share) resulting in a higher pay-out ratio. The challenge we faced at the start of the year was of generating demand and desire on one hand and ensuring prompt delivery through innovative channels on the other, keeping in mind the unique requirement of the times. Rising to the task, our team across divisions rolled out several initiatives, which included adopting gold-standard safety protocols and combining our digital knowledge with our physical connect to enable customers to buy products of their choice through the channel of their preference. This agility enabled our various divisions to bounce back faster post the unlocking of the economy. With the second wave of the pandemic hitting India and lockdowns being repeated across states, FY22 will be another challenging year, or at least till the vaccination drive reaches a fair level of coverage in the country. In such times, we will continue to exercise prudence in managing our expenses. Our war-on-waste programme has enabled us to identify sustainable savings, making us a leaner and fitter organisation. Moreover, the management of cash and the balance sheet have become well institutionalised processes in the Company, and this should hold us in good stead to overcome tough periods. Finally, our business segments have emerged stronger with the learnings and experience of the past year. Armed with this arsenal of knowledge, along with our strengths of fantastic brand portfolio, dedicated people and strong customer relationships, we are better prepared and positioned to navigate future challenges.

Being Good is Good for Business.

I take this opportunity to thank the Board for their continued support and stewardship, all our employees for their unwavering commitment and team spirit and all our partners, vendors, suppliers and other stakeholders for reposing their faith and contributing towards making Titan not just a world-class competitive and contemporary company, but also a humane, caring and fair family that we are proud to be part of.

1 a) Standalone Numbers:

During the year under review, the Company's total revenue grew by 3% to Rs.20,602 crore compared to Rs.20,010 crore in the previous year.

Profit before tax declined by 41% to Rs.1,233 crore and the net profit decreased by 42% to

Rs.877 crore.

The Watches and Wearables Division of the Company recorded revenue of Rs.1,580 crore, a decline of 40%. The revenue from Jewellery Division grew by 3% touching Rs.17,274 crore (excluding sale of bullion of Rs.1,357 crore). The revenue from Eyewear Division declined by 31% to Rs.375 crore.

While the Indian Dress Wear Division declined by 30%, the Fragrances and Accessories Division recorded a decrease of 51%.

With the declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic in mid-March 2020, the performance of various Divisions were affected during the first half of the last financial year due to store closures consequent upon declaration of national lockdown by the Government and subsequent state-wise lockdowns. Watches & Wearables and Eyewear revenue declined whereas Jewellery Division grew marginally by 3%, (excluding sale of bullion during the year). There was a substantial increase in the procurement of gold through Gold on Lease resulting in considerable increase in the cash balances and no borrowings at the end of the year. The Management Discussion and Analysis report, which is attached, dwells into the performance of each of the business divisions and the outlook for the current year.

1 b) Consolidated Numbers

At the consolidated level, the revenue stood at

Rs.21,644 crore as against Rs.21,052 crore in the previous year. The details of the performance of the Company's subsidiaries are covered below in point 17 of this Report.

2. International Operations

The impact of the pandemic on this business was significant as secondary sales dried up leading to virtually zero primary sales to the Company's distributors in the first half of the year. As some normalcy returned in the second half of the year, efforts were focused on targeted expansion and maximizing returns from markets that performed better. New products, new distribution channels and a focus on e-commerce enabled a reasonable recovery in the second half of the year.

The first international Tanishq store in Meena Bazaar, Dubai was opened in October 2020 in the midst of the pandemic but did exceedingly well. The store is loved by discerning customers for its differentiated merchandise and superlative customer experience. Further efforts will also be made to expand the brands' presence in the GCC region and around the world. Considering this, the Company plans to enter into North America for which ground work has been initiated.

3. COVID- 19

The COVID-19 pandemic has emerged as a global challenge, creating disruption across the world. The businesses and business models have transformed to create a new work order.

The revenue impact of the pandemic played out broadly along the anticipated lines with varying levels of impact and a positive surprise in the Jewellery business.

The physical and emotional well-being of employees continues to be a top priority for the Company, with several initiatives taken to support employees and their families during the pandemic. The Company has extended counselling and self-help services providing mental & emotional support to employees. The Company has reimagined employee engagement by embracing virtual technologies. Initiatives were taken to reduce stress and the feeling of isolation, hosted inspirational leaders, mental health experts and finance experts to boost the morale of employees.

After registering tepid business during the first half of the year due to COVID-19, the Company witnessed strong business momentum as the COVID-19 impact on the consumer sentiments seemed to fade during the second half of the year. After recording the best revenue in the third quarter, which was a festive season, the Company again recorded very strong revenues in the last quarter across all businesses. The strong performance in the financial year had been the result of the agility in navigating through the crisis and uncertainty of ground situations, along with innumerous grass root innovations to serve consumer needs and leveraging digital channels to reach-out to them effectively. While the Jewellery Division has emerged very strongly from the crisis and witnessed strong growth in the last two quarters, the

Watches & Wearables and the Eyewear Divisions have also made very good progress on recovery. The Company continued with its retail network expansion during the year across the Watches & Wearables, Jewellery and Eyewear businesses.

In line with the Company's philosophy to support its ecosystem, during the year, the Company had granted loans to the extent of Rs.97 crore to its franchisees and vendors to support them during the pandemic crisis, out of which an amount of Rs.3 crore is outstanding as of 31st March 2021.

4. Dividend

The Directors are pleased to recommend the payment of dividend on equity shares at the rate of 400% (i.e.

Rs.4 per equity share of Rs.1 each), subject to approval by the shareholders at the ensuing Annual General Meeting (AGM) and payment is subject to deduction of tax at source as may be applicable.

5. Transfer to General Reserve

As permitted under the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013, the Board do not propose to transfer any amount to general reserve and has decided to retain the entire amount of profit for Financial Year 2020-21 in the profit and loss account.

6. Finance

The year saw all the businesses being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with slow-down in operations and sales. The Company's War on Waste initiative to control the costs, gave very good results in reducing costs significantly. Further, the Company's particular focus on conserving cash ensured that adequate liquidity was available despite the pandemic. Substantial increase in the procurement of gold through Gold on Lease resulted in huge cash generation for the year resulting in a very comfortable cash position at the end of the year. During the year under review, ICRA upgraded the Company's long term rating from AA+ to AAA with stable outlook. The Company had issued Commercial Papers (CP) totalling Rs.1,500 crore with three month tenure during the first and second quarters of the year and redeemed the same on the respective due dates. There were no outstanding CPs as of 31st March 2021. During the year, the Company had sold its excessive bullion thereby increasing the efficiency in inventory management and cash flow situation.

7. Public Deposits

The Jewellery Division of the Company was successfully operating customer acquisition schemes for jewellery purchases for many years. When the Companies Act, 2013 (the "Act") became substantially effective from 1st April 2014, the Company had around seven lakh subscribers contributing to these schemes. However, these schemes were exempt under the Companies Act, 1956 relating to acceptance of public deposits as such schemes were not covered in the definition of deposits. Under the Act and the Rules made there under (‘Deposit Regulations') the scope of the term "deposit" was enlarged and therefore a view was taken that the jewellery purchase schemes offered by the Company to its customers would be treated as public deposits. Thereupon, the Company discontinued fresh enrolment of subscribers and initiated steps to close the erstwhile customer schemes, which were wound down in August 2014.

Under the Deposit Regulations as amended from time to time, a company is permitted to accept deposits subject to applicable provisions, to the extent of 10% of the aggregate of the paid-up share capital, securities premium account and free reserves from its Members & 25% of the aggregate of the paid-up share capital, securities premium account and free reserves from the Public after prior approval by way of special resolutions passed by the Members in this regard. Requisite approval was obtained from the Members of the Company and a new programme for customers to purchase jewellery (under the Jewellery Purchase Plan) was launched in November 2014 in compliance with the Deposit Regulations.

The details relating to deposits, covered under Chapter V of the Act are as under:

(a) accepted during the year: Rs.1,909 crore

(b) remained unpaid or unclaimed as at the end of the year: Rs.1,075 crore

(c) whether there has been any default in repayment of deposits or payment of interest thereon during the year and if so, number of such cases and the total amount involved- (i) at the beginning of the year : Nil (ii) maximum during the year : Nil (iii) at the end of the year : Nil

There are no deposits that have been accepted by the Company that are not in compliance with the requirements of Chapter V of the Act.

8. Material Changes and Commitments Affecting Financial Position Between end of the Financial Year and Date of Report

There have been no material changes and commitments for the likely impact affecting financial position between end of the financial year and the date of the report except for the impact arising out of the continuance of the COVID-19 pandemic which has risen exponentially in the second wave till the date of signing of this Report.
