Mumbai: As we approach the end of 2023, it's an opportune moment to reflect on the transformative journey we have embarked upon, both as a company and for our esteemed clients. This year has been nothing short of extraordinary, marked by significant milestones and growth that have reshaped our trajectory. As I pen down these thoughts, I am filled with a sense of pride and anticipation for what 2024 holds for us.

The year 2023 has been a remarkable period of expansion for us. We have witnessed an impressive three times growth, reflecting our hard work, dedication, and innovative strategies. This growth is not just a number; it represents our enhanced capabilities, expanded client base, and the deepening trust our clients place in us.

One of the most exciting developments this year has been the four times growth in our experience centers, now spanning across Gurgaon, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Surat, Pune, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, and Kolkata. These centers have become the cornerstone of our client engagement strategy, offering immersive and interactive experiences beyond traditional service models. They have enabled us to connect with our clients on a personal level, understanding their needs and preferences in a dynamic environment.

2023 also marked our foray into the international market with the launch of a Joint Venture in the United States. This strategic move has diversified our portfolio and opened up new avenues for growth and innovation. The US market, with its unique challenges and opportunities, has allowed us to refine our offerings and tailor them to a broader audience.

In our quest to be more inclusive and cater to a wider demographic, we launched a dedicated Men's Segment this year, with an array of wigs and products to cater to gentlemen’s diverse needs. This initiative has been particularly close to my heart, as it represents our commitment to understanding and serving the different needs of all our clients. The response to this segment has been overwhelmingly positive, reinforcing our belief in the importance of inclusivity in business.

As we set our sights on 2024, we are buoyed by optimism and a clear vision. We plan to open experience centers in the top 20 Indian cities to enhance our market presence. In addition, we project a Rs.60 Crores Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR), a goal that is ambitious yet achievable given our current growth trajectory. This projection is not just a financial target but a reflection of our aspirations to continuously evolve and excel.

In 2024, our focus will remain steadfast on innovation and enhancing client satisfaction. We believe that the key to sustained growth lies in our ability to adapt, innovate, and stay ahead of industry trends. Our team is already working on several new initiatives that promise to bring fresh perspectives and solutions to our clients, leveraging our uniqueness of offering 100% natural, ethically sourced hair extensions and wigs. This commitment to natural, high-quality products sets us apart in the industry and is at the core of our business philosophy. We are also working to provide a more hassle-free trial and installation experience at our advanced centers to improve our service offerings.

Building on our successful entry into the US market, we plan to strengthen our global footing. We aim to establish more partnerships and explore new markets, ensuring our services are accessible to a broader audience. This global expansion will drive growth and enrich our understanding of diverse markets and client needs.

As I look back on 2023, I am filled with gratitude for the trust our clients have placed in us and the dedication of our team. Looking forward to 2024, I am excited about the possibilities the new year will bring for us. We are on a journey of continuous growth and improvement, and I am confident that the coming year will be another chapter of success and innovation in our story.
