FY 15 took us closer to our goal and passion of providing quality education to a larger population of children by focusing on excellence and creativity. As of 31st March 2015, we had a network of preschools with our presence spanning across 88 cities. Such growth is attributable to our deep understanding of the education space, the robustness of our business model along with our innovative methods that make learning a dynamic activity for our young children. We have also witnessed further traction in our day care business.

While expansion of preschools was key to our growth, we maintained sharp focus on enhancing financial performance simultaneously; as a result we registered 31.6% growth in topline and 38.65% increase in Profit After Tax in FY15.

We also took major steps towards strengthening our balance sheet with the monetization of K-12 properties owned by Tree House. In FY15, we have received INR 17.1 crore from divestments of K-12 land and in Q4 we signed an MOU for consideration of INR 52.5 crore. We will deploy these funds towards debt reduction and expansion of business operations. This will be further be aided by money raised through the recent QIP and continuing operating cash flows.

With each passing day, it is our effort to make a significant contribution to the education landscape. We believe that our trusted brand is bringing meaningful change to the lives of our customers, the young children just starting off in their lives. By remaining focused on this objective, we are positioned to deliver secular long-term growth over several years."
