Introduction Contd...

Industry analysts observed that MG's decision to foray into the accessories business made a lot of sense. The company's market leader status in the country's branded men's wear market was expected to go a long way in ensuring the success of the new venture.

The company owned a portfolio of highly successful brands such as Peter England, Van Heusen, Louis Phillipe, Allen Solly, San Frisco and ByFord (Refer Exhibit I).
