3. DIVIDEND

In accordance with compromise settlement arrived with the lender bank during the year the company has written back interest accrued in earlier years in the books of accounts. However, in absence of any production activities no operational profit was generated for recommendation of dividend for the financial year ended 31st March, 2015.

4. SHARE CAPITAL

The paid up Equity Share Capital as on March 31, 2015 was Rs.16.12 crores. During the year under review the company has not issued any shares or any convertible instruments.

5. CREDIT FACILITIES

Before closure of our factory at Bilaspur the Allahabad Bank had granted us certain credit facilities in connection with our projects at factory site. Even after closure of factory the company was regular in its commitments to the bank but due to adversities after a period of time such adherence was not complied with which led the bank to exercising its rights. But the company had always been in contact with the bank to amicably arrive at a mutual settlement. The efforts finally came to fruition since an amicable settlement was reached which was formally communicated to the company by the bank vide its letter dated 27th March, 2015 and which certainly is a giant step towards in right direction.

6. ECONOMIC SCENARIO AND OUTLOOK

India is set to become the world''s fastest-growing major economy by 2016 ahead of China, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in its recent latest forecast. India is expected to grow at 6.3 per cent in 2015, and 6.5 per cent in 2016 by when it is likely to cross China''s projected growth rate, the IMF said in the latest update of its World Economic Outlook.

The government, engineering an economic rebound with a slew of reforms, has unveiled a new statistical method to calculate the national income with a broader framework that turned up a pleasant surprise: GDP in the past year 2013-14 grew 6.9 per cent instead of the earlier 4.7 per cent.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank in a joint report have forecasted that India will register a growth of 6.4 per cent in 2015, due to renewed confidence in the market brought about by a series of economic reforms pursued by the government.

7. PAPER INDUSTRY OUTLOOK AND OPPORTUNITIES

There are about 700 - 800 paper mills (organized & unorganized sector) in the country out of which 12 large units accounts for production share of about 30% and balance units mostly comprising of medium (Agro-based) and Small (waste paper based) paper mills with production share of 70%. Wood based industry accounts for 35% of production while waste paper and agri residue accounts for 44% & 21% respectively.

The paper industry in India has become more promising as the domestic demand is on the rise. Increasing population and literacy rate, growth in GDP, improvement in manufacturing sector and lifestyle of individuals are expected to account for the growth in the paper industry of India.

According to "India Paper Industry Forecast & Opportunities, 2017" the paper industry in India is expected to grow at the CAGR of around 9.6% during 2012-2017, which will make the revenues of paper industry of India to reach up to USD 11.83 Billion by 2017.

CAPITAL WORK IN PROGRESS

The paper plant was closed on 6th October, 2010 to ensure due compliance of orders of the Central Pollution Control Board during which the expansion unit was still under the installation stage. As a result of the closure, the installation of the paper machine and the integration of the power plant with the old and new machines could not be carried out. In order to be effective as well as feasible both needs to operate in unison but since circumstances has led to non commissioning of the power plant and the new paper machine both of them have been shown as work in progress in auditor''s report.

IMPAIRMENT OF ASSETS

In compliance with Accounting Standard AS-28 relating to "Impairment of Assets”, the company has reviewed the carrying amount of its fixed assets as at the end of the year. During the previous financial year the valuation of the various assets of the company situated at our mill site including the factory building and premises was carried out by a registered valuer in connection with various financial facilities granted by our banker. Although the report was submitted by the valuer to the bank directly in accordance with his norms of appointment it is significant to note that neither the bank has communicated any adverse remarks on such assets nor have they expressed any concern regarding the current state state of such assets till date. Based on the strategic plans and such valuation of the fixed assets of the company, no impairment of assets is envisaged at the balance sheet date.

FINANCIAL VIABILITY OF COMPANY

As it has been pointed out in the auditor''s report that there has been complete erosion of net worth due to closure of our mill. It is expected that once we are able start operations the losses can be made up .

CONCLUSION

The company has been very well supported from all quarters and therefore your directors wish to place on record their sincere appreciation for the support and co-operation received from Employees, Dealers, Suppliers, Central and State Governments, Bankers and others associated with the Company.

BUSINESS PERFORMANCE

The closure of the factory since 6th October, 2010 due to instructions issued by the Central Pollution Control Board has put a temporary halt on our consistent progress which we had managed to achieve during the last few years. But this has not deterred us from finding a feasible solution which shall soon be implemented and enable us to carry on production activities without any stoppages.

Even though we have not been able to manufacture paper for majority of the year yet we managed to earn substantial revenue from what we produced prior to such closure. We have also managed to curb certain top heavy expenditures and this has also helped us reduce our losses to a certain extent.

Once production activities resume we shall certainly make up for lost time and shall continue our march towards progress.
