COMPANY PROFILE

Big Bazaar is an Indian retail chain of hypermarkets, discount department stores, and grocery
stores. The retail chain was founded by Kishore Biyani under his parent organisation Future
Group, Future Retail Ltd., India’s biggest department store chain that gained from the government’s
surprise currency clampdown, still has room to extend the rally that’s more than doubled its market
value this year. The shares of the food-to-fashion retailer are set to rally 22 percent in the next 12
months, according to the average analyst price target compiled by Bloomberg. The stock has surged
128 percent since Jan. 1, beating returns from rivals such as billionaire Kumar Mangalam Birla-
controlled Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Ltd. and Tata group’s Trent Ltd.
A shortage of cash hit purchases of soaps to cars after Prime Minister Narendra Modi in November
junked high-value currency bills, driving shoppers to large-format stores like Future Retail that accept
credit cards. Sales may jump 25 percent this year as the company adds to its chain of 1,000-plus stores,
India’s biggest, Group Chief Executive Officer Kishore Biyani said in an interview.
“Demonetisation was one big tailwind in recent months and the single goods-and-services tax will be
the next big push,” said Himanshu Nayyar, Mumbai-based analyst at Systematix Shares & Stocks Ltd.,
referring to the sales tax regime that will help retailers buy materials seamlessly from across states after
it is rolled out from July 1. His one-year price target of 345 rupees is 18 percent higher than Monday’s
close.
Investors are warming up to India’s brick-and-mortar retailers at a time when their online rivals face an
intense discount war and eroding valuations. Shares of billionaire Radhakishan Damani-owned Avenue
Supermarts Ltd., which sells staples at knockdown rates, have more than doubled from their IPO price
in March. The stock hasn’t been added to a popular index yet because of its short trading history. Trent,
which sells branded clothes, has advanced 32 percent since Jan. 1. Aditya Birla Fashion has climbed 26
percent. which is known for having a significant prominence in Indian retail and fashion sectors.
Big Bazaar is also the parent chain of Food Bazaar, Fashion at Big Bazaar[4] (abbreviated as fbb)
and eZone where at locations it houses all under one roof, while it is sister chain of retail outlets
like Brand Factory, Home Town, Central, eZone, etc.
Founded in 2001, Future Group’s CEO Kishore Biyani, on Thursday, tweeted about the
cash being dispensed at the Big Bazaars and said that it was the money spent by the

10
customers being returned to the customers. He said that there was no withdrawal from the
bank. Biyani founded the Big Bazar in 2001. On Tuesday, Biyani had tweeted about providing
the facility to the Big Bazaar customers and said that people could use their debit cards to
withdraw Rs 2,000 from Thursday. He had said that all the customers needed to do were to
swipe their cards at the cash counter and take home up to Rs 2,000.
State Bank of India (SBI) has helped Big Bazaar to activate this facility through the bank’s
cash at POS (point of sale) machines. It should be kept in mind that the cash withdrawal
facility is subject to all applicable restrictions imposed by banks, as per RBIand government
notifications from time to time. This facility is currently available at 258 Big Bazaar and FBB
stores in over 115 cities and towns all over the country. The issuance starts from Thursday,
November 24, 2016.Earlier Biyani had said that they were simply trying to ease the difficulties
faced by customers due to the demonetisation but supported the government’s initiative in
meeting its objective. Biyani went on to welcome the customers and said that they could visit
the stores now that they can withdraw cash there instead of queuing up at the banks and
ATMs. Big Bazaar is one of the oldest and largest hypermarkets chain of India,
housing about 250+ stores in over 120 cities and towns across the country

History
Big Bazaar was founded in 2001 by Kishore, the founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of
the parent company, the Future Group.
Indian actress Asin and the former Captain of Indian cricket team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni have
previously endorsed for the fashion vertical of Big Bazaar. Look who’s shopping at Big
Bazaar. Filmfares best debut (female) for 2009 actress and Ghajini star Asin. Its the
affordable fashion in the stores Fashion@Big Bazaar line that has attracted the new
Bollywood sensation here

Asin, who joined youth icon and captain of the Indian cricket team MS Dhoni as the
brand ambassador for this line, said, Im really excited to be associated with this brand
since it is trusted by millions of Indian consumers. It offers great collections at great
bargains. Sanjeev Agrawal, concept head for the inhouse fashion line, agreed,
Fashion@Big Bazaar retails fashion apparel and accessories that appeals to a broad
spectrum of age groups. And with Asin endorsing the brand, it will definitely boost the
appeal of our ready-to-wear womens collection.
The clothes here range from daily wear, college wear, office wear to garments for special
occasions, all at attractive prices. Dont be surprised at the highly competitive prices, this
has been made possible due to bulk buying, which is why the fashion line can offer the
latest trends at the lowest possible prices, a concept almost unheard of in the industry.
The highlights of womens wear include the mix-n-match pin tuck kurtis and knitted
churidaars, available in a wide range of colours, the Rogan Patiyala and dupatta sets and
Kantha embroidered kurtas in ethnic wear. The range in western wear includes printed
long tees, tunic tops and slim fit jeans. For guys, theres bankers shirts, striper tees, crew
