The export revenue of textile industry contributes a large share to the GDP of Pakistan. Textiles Exports from Pakistan Textiles constitute a major exporting sector for Pakistan, which accounts for about 60% Of the country s total foreign exchange earnings. The major export items are yarn, gray Cloth, finished cloth, towels and bed sheets and their major customers are the USA, EU, Japan and Hong Kong. Many textile exports take place under quota arrangements With the EU and the United States. Gray cloth constitutes roughly 16-18% of total cloth

The Founder A man of vision, courage and integrity, Mian Mohammad Yahya was born in 1918 in Chiniot. In 1947 when he was running a leather business in Calcutta, he witnessed the momentous that swept the indopak sub-continent and resulted in the emergence of Pakistan. Like many of his contemporaries, he also

migrated to the new country to help establish its industrial base. His is a story of success through sheer hard work and an undaunted spirit of enterprise.

Net Profit margin ignores the utilization of assets and total assets turnover ratio ignores the profitability on sales. One variation in Du Pont analysis is to understand the firm s return on investment. In the year 2001. an increase in net profit margin ratio or both.11662457 14222444 = 2. Neither the net profit margin nor the total assets itself provide adequate measures for overall effectiveness. net profit margin and total asset turnover ratio. . the return on investment remained low but in 1999 and 2000 there is positive trend and there is an increase in return on investment because of increase in both. An improvement in the earning power of the firm will result if there is increase in total assets turnover ratio. The return on investment ratio or earning power resolves this shortcoming.
