Capacity expansion and the subsequent improvement in overall efficiency, as well as a growing product portfolio, have all contributed to a second consecutive quarter of sales and profit growth at circular knitter Teejay Lanka. After struggling with higher cotton-yarn prices, the company’s primary raw material, challenging sale prices and margins, and higher energy costs, Tejay reported a slight increase in the bottom line for the final quarter ended in March 2018. The company posted 3 per cent year-on-year in earnings to 72 cents a share or 508.4 mn as it restricted overheads while the sales grew 13 per cent to 6.6 bn.
