FUTURE OUTLOOK

Following the NDA (National Democratic Alliance) victory in the recently concluded general elections, expectations are now exceptionally high from the new Government with regards to reforms and governance. The clear electoral mandate given to a single party reduces political uncertainty and raises the potential for economic policy reform.

The New Government faces a daunting task of reversing a declining economic trend. It could be 8 to 12 months before we can see any green shoots of recovery. However, market may not wait till then and price in positive policy as well as administrative actions.

The fact that we will have a decisive Government is a good thing, but the coming 100 days are going to be very important the cabinet formation, the budget, even some indications of how the government is going to move to get the economy back on track, all these will be very important events to watch.

After the allocation of portfolios, the first litmus test for the new Government would be the Budget which is due sometime in July. Already expectations are building up for big ticket reforms to be announced before the budget, but will they happen only time will tell.

The budget document is expected to give the right signals specially with respect to subsidy policy and overall fiscal stance. The budget may also benefit from articulating appropriate contingencies for a probable disruption to food production this year.

Industry is expectantly waiting for NDA''s clarity on FDI issues in sectors like Insurance, Retail, Banking etc. Lot of policy actions is required in sectors like Mining, Power, Infrastructure, Real Estate etc. The entire world shall have a keen eye on the policy reforms which India would undertake. In view of the above, the new Government has to start firing all cylinders without wasting time. And if that happens, unprecedented amount of foreign money shall flow into India, which will be good for Indian market and economy and will in turn also boost our business prospects.

The year 2012-13, remained a challenging year both from domestic and global scenario. While the European financial crisis continued for this year, the domestic economy also suffered due to high inflation and uncontrolled fiscal deficit. The uncertain political scenario coupled with the scams & corruption cases in the Country also affected the sentiments in the markets. However, due to prudent management policies, changing the product mix and by focusing more on fee based services, your Company''s performance remained reasonably good.

During the year, the Company has taken membership of MCX-SX, to enable the clients to trade in Equity-Cash & F&O Segments of this new Stock Exchange of the Country.

FUTURE OUTLOOK

Prospect of likely normal monsoon – This should help boost growth, rural incomes and help in moderating stubborn food inflation. As per the forecast of Indian Meteorological Department, monsoon is expected to be 98.0% of the long-term average during the June-Sept season of FY14. It may, however, be noted that the actual agricultural output depends not only on the total quantum of rainfall during the season but also on the spatio- temporal distribution.

Recent big crash in gold & crude oil prices- In average terms, crude oil prices have fallen by 11.4% & gold prices by 10.0% in y-o-y terms. As India is a large importer of both these commodities, a sharp fall in their prices means lower inflation, lower current account deficit and faster interest rate cuts.

General elections in 2014 – Elections are typically accompanied by fiscal expansion in the preceding year. The Budget for FY14 too suggests an expansionary policy (29.4% increase in Plan expenditure).

CCI is moving the needle: The Cabinet Committee on Investments is fast-tracking the projects. On April 22, 2013, it cleared investments in 25 oil & gas blocks (16 with conditional clearances but 9 without any conditions). This will put to use US$ 13.4 bln in oil & gas exploration, which has already been incurred & will also bring in additional investment of US$ 2.5 bln. It has approved 13 projects of the power sector amounting US$ 6 bln. This includes 10 transmissions, 2 thermal and 1 hydro project. Collectively, the CCI has approved projects worth more than 1% of GDP in its 4 meetings.

Exports likely to Recover – On improving global outlook (esp. for the US) and government efforts. The new trade policy on April 18, 2013 has announced steps like greater market and product diversification, extension of Zero Duty Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG) Scheme to all sectors, to revive exports.

Slowdown in China''s growth – This is good for India as it will have depressing effect on major commodity prices like oil, coal, iron ore, steel, copper, etc. which are the major raw material for the domestic industry.

According to the report by the Economic Advisor to India''s Prime Minister, the nation''s worst economic slowdown in a decade has bottomed out and growth is expected to pick up to 6.4% during FY2013-14. The report said the government needs to do more in the coming months to facilitate new investments. A speedy execution of projects coupled with normal summer rains should usher in a broad-based economic recovery for India. We therefore expect FY 2013-14 to be a better year.

OPERATIONS

The operations of the Company for the year under review have resulted in the gross profit of Rs 227.97 lacs against Rs 226.92 lacs in the previous year. After providing for interest, depreciation and taxes, the Company has made a net profit of Rs 101.09 lacs as against Rs76.37 lacs in the previous year. The gross revenue stood at Rs 859.72 lacs as against Rs 772.27 lacs during the previous year. The above figure demonstrated an increase of 11.32% in the top line and 32.37% in the bottom line.

The year 2011-12, remained a problematic year both from domestic and global point of view. While the Europe financial crisis continued, the domestic economy also suffered a lot resulting into high inflation and uncontrollable fiscal deficit. However, due to prudent management policies changing the product mix focusing more on fee based services, your Company's performance remained positive.

FUTURE OUTLOOK

Globally, European Countries continue to reel under tremendous stress. US too is still not out of woods with unemployment rates continue to be high. Concerns on slowdown in China are also emanating fast. China's GDP growth hit its slowest level in three years in the first quarter of 2012 at 8.1 per cent against 8.9 per cent for the previous quarter. Chinese Exports rose 4.9 per cent in April from a year earlier, missing economists' expectations for an 8.5 per cent increase and much weaker than the 8.9 per cent export growth in March 2012.

Domestically, our currency has lost a quarter of its value since July 2011 to touch levels of 55 and the CAD-GDP ratio is at 4%-close to the levels seen in countries affected by the East Asian crisis and higher than the 3% level of crisis hit India of 1991. However, there are important differences - import cover, external debt to GDP, and debt service ratio are at more comfortable levels now.

In addition, domestic inflation levels too are at uncomfortable levels. The recent hike in petrol prices would augur well for the much starved Oil Marketing Companies, however, this would bloat the fuel inflation numbers which would add pressure and the vicious circle of elongated interest rates and growth slowdown may continue.

We believe that Indian economy is facing headwinds like higher crude oil prices, elevated inflation and interest rate levels leading to liquidity crunch which may lead to growth slowdown of the corporates.

We at Ajcon, However kept our focus on our own micro activities and kept looking for opportunities even in these adverse times. While the broking business remained under pressure, our advisory and consultancy services business has given good results. During the year we successfully executed some prestigious transactions. Since, we have this year secured Merchant Banking Registration, we expect good growth in the investment banking activities of the Company.

SHARE CAPITAL

There was no change in the paid up share capital of the Company during the year. However, Authorised share capital of the Company was increased from Rs 7.00 Crore to Rs 10.00 Crore vide Ordinary Resolution passed at Annual General Meeting held on 12th August, 2011.

The overall outlook remained bright, with industrial growth set to be in double digits and good a monsoon brightening the prospects of agricultural production.
