"A multi-branding exercise, once initiated, can bring about a substantial consolidation of the core brand."1

- Nabankur Gupta, Non-executive Director, Raymond India in 2004.

"A well-segmented, focused multi-brand approach makes sense - in the long run. Yes, in the short and medium run, it is a cost, because you need to support each brand with just x amount of money - the corpus gets spread over four brands, diluting the impact. But that's the short-term view." 2

- Ram S. Ramsundar, CEO, Electrolux Group, India in 2001. in February 2005.
