Comment
This move came when the markets are observing a boom in the e-Commerce trends. The e-commerce sector is a sunrise sector from an investment point of view.

It is believed that  e-commerce sales can touch 60 billion US dollars by 2020, driven by the manifold growth in smartphone users to more than 500 million.

By the end of 2015, fashionwear, including apparel and footwear, is expected to be the largest retail category online, with sales of 3.9 billion US dollars, bigger than sales of electronics and consumer durables online at 3.5 billion US dollars.
