OPERATIONS AND THE STATE OF COMPANY'S AFFAIRS :

(A) Sales and Profit:

The sales and other income of the Company during 2014-15 were flat at Rs. 151.27 crores compared to Rs. 152.38 crores of the previous year mainly because the prices of prime products were lower, partly reflecting lower international prices of crude soya oil. There was, however, 22.88% of volume growth in sales of the Company and that is a positive sign that Company was able to sell a much higher quantity corresponding to higher production during the year. The company has made Profit before tax of Rs.20.55 crores compared to previous year's Rs.28.39 crores. This is mainly due to relatively lesser realization in nutraceutical product which is exclusively exported. The previous financial year 2013-14 was exceptionally good for nutraceutical products

due to sudden surge of demand for said products accompanied by fall in Indian Rupee vs. U.S. Dollar. Both these factors regained normalcy subsequently. In fact, market for Tocopherols went into reverse swing and prices remained low throughout the financial year 2014-15.

(B) Raw Material:

Required quantities of both the Raw materials were available from within India.

(C) Export:

Company was able to procure the required orders for its export products. Company made export of Rs. 38.57 crores during the year.

(D) The Capital expenditure incurred during the year was mainly for ongoing raw material throughput capacity expansion. During the third quarter, the Company successfully commissioned its new High Pressure Fat Splitting plant and in the last fortnight of the financial year, new Fractionation column was commissioned.
