A Great Beginning To The Year For Myntra

“I couldn’t have asked for a better start to the new year,” says Myntra and Jabong CEO Ananth Narayanan to ET Now reporter Rahul Dayama. He is of course referring to the recently concluded End of Reason Sale on Myntra and Jabong.

The fifth edition of Myntra’s End of Reason sale, the country’s biggest fashion sale event, held between 3rd and 5th January concluded with record participation from 12.5 million users.  Myntra registered a 160% growth in revenues with 2.1 million app installs.
