    The company said it was able to clock best ever sales performance during Q4-21 and FY-21. The ongoing second wave of COVID-19 and intermittent localised lockdowns have slowed the economic activities during Q1 of FY-22, however the residential real estate sector is expected to bounce back earlier due to inherent demand in housing, work from home concept, better affordability and low interest rate regime.

    Managing cash flows efficiently during these turbulent times is critical.

    Global Markets:

    Most European stocks declined while most Asian stocks advanced on Wednesday, 23 June 2021, following overnight gains stateside that saw the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite rising to a record high.

    Minutes from the Bank of Japan's April monetary policy meeting released Wednesday showed members agreed that stimulus measures, particularly those in advanced economies, could result in a faster than expected pace of recovery for Japan and other countries.

    Japan's factory activity expanded at the slowest pace in four months in June. The au Jibun Bank Flash Japan Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to a seasonally adjusted 51.5 in June from a final 53.0 in the previous month, largely due to a sharp decline in output.

    US stocks rebounded Tuesday as Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell vowed not to raise rates too quickly as the dollar and oil gave up earlier gains. The S&P 500 ended Tuesday just short of a new closing record, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite climbed to an all-time high.

    Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell on Tuesday reaffirmed the U.S. central bank's intent to encourage a “broad and inclusive” recovery of the job market, and not to raise interest rates too quickly based only on the fear of coming inflation.

    “We will not raise interest rates pre-emptively because we fear the possible onset of inflation. We will wait for evidence of actual inflation or other imbalances,” Powell said in a hearing before a U.S. House of Representatives panel.
