It also intends to widen product offerings to further increase consumer reach. The company is focussing on customer relationship management, strategies, campaigns and technologies to analyse & manage customer interactions as well as related data throughout the customer lifecycle, for building customer retention and driving sales. At the upper price band of Rs 87, the company is demanding a market capitalisation of Rs 8,961 crore, valuing it at 58 times FY20 diluted earnings. Titan trades at 85 times FY20 earnings given its superior performance. Kalyan Jewellers is expanding pan-India to take advantage of organised sector growth. It has focussed on advertising, top-notch retail stores outlet for building trust, and localising the design for winning customers. Going forward, we believe that Kalyan Jewellers would perform better on the back of a strong brand and also, due to its number of stores in India & internationally.
