By Aditya Raghunath -- Ace investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala might have sold off a large percentage of his holdings in VIP Industries Ltd (NS: VIPI ) but India’s largest baggage seller made a roaring return to form today. Its stock price closed up 20% at Rs 462.95, after it reported a profit for the first time in five quarters.

"The Q1FY22 revenue sequentially was impacted due to Covid-19. The revenue stood at 85% of last year March quarter at Rs 221 crore. Hard Luggage constituted 39% of total revenue for this quarter. Gross Margin was at 54% during the quarter, mainly due to lower discounts and better mix in favor of higher margin products and price increase," the company said in a statement.
