Kishore Biyani-led Future Retail today posted a 3.56 percent rise in net profit at Rs 153.12 crore for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, against a net profit of Rs 147.85 crore in the same period a year ago.

Future Retail also announced the resignation of Rajan Bharti Mittal as a non-executive director of the company "due to preoccupations".

Mittal came on board of Future Retail after the merger of Bharti group's retail business under the EasyDay chain with Future Group in an all-stock deal.

In June 2018, three years after the merger, Bharti group sold more than half of its stake in Future Retail for nearly of Rs 1,697 crore through open market transactions.

Bharti group entity Cedar Support Services disposed of 3.03 crore shares, amounting to 6.04 percent stake in Future Retail.

Cedar Support Services, which held 9.23 percent stake in Future Retail as on March 31, 2018, also exited from Biyani's Future Enterprises by selling its 13.64 percent stake for nearly Rs 243 crore.

According to a regulatory filing by Future Retail, total income during the April-June quarter stood at Rs 4,541.94 crore. It was Rs 4,707.44 crore in the year-ago period.

The company said revenue from operations, part of total income, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017, was reported inclusive of excise duty. Goods and Service Tax (GST) was implemented with effect from July 1, 2017, which replaced excise duty and other input taxes.

"Revenue from operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, is reported net of GST. Therefore, revenue from operations for the current periods are not comparable with the corresponding earlier periods," it added.

Future Retail also announced the appointment of Rahul Garg as additional (non-executive) director on the board of the company.

Future Retail shares settled 1.06 percent lower at Rs 515.05 apiece on BSE.
