DIVIDEND

Your directors are pleased to recommend for your approval payment of dividend for the year ended 31 st March 2010 at 30% on the Equity Shares of the Company.

The payout ratio for the year works out to 9.51% as compared to 12.47% on the basis of PAT of FY 2010 & 2009.

OPERATIONS:

The Companys Total Income and Gross profit amounted to Rs.22314 Lakh (Previous year Rs, 18541 Lakh) and Rs.4463 Lakh (Previous year Rs. 3122 Lakh), This represents growth in total income of 20.35 % and Gross Profit of 42.95 % as compared to the previous year.

The performance of the company was affected on account of severe power cut which continuous to prevail in the State of Tamil Nadu as in the previous year. The marginal improvement is that industries are permitted to use up to 75-80% of the total power connected as against 60% in the previous year. The restriction in use of power and the high cost of alternative energy has affected the over all production and sales performance. The rate of interest charged by the Banks remained at higher levels. These factors had a bearing on the overall margins and performance of the Company.

The mandatory system of registration of export contracts of Cotton yarn brought in by the Central Government and further completion of the so registered export contracts within the specified time limit from such registration is causing considerable operational difficulties in the matter of completion and execution of export contracts. The Central Government has further withdrawn benefits for exports of Cotton yarn which would severely affect the margins of the company in future. The unwanted curbs and withdrawing export benefits would jeopardize the long term interest and competitiveness of the Industry.

The State Government / TNEB has permitted for due set off of the captive power generated out of wind mills even in respect of peak hour generated units, which was not the case earlier. Consequent to this policy change the company has decided to install 12MW of wind power capacity, which would meet the entire energy demand of the Spinning units of the Company at a cost of Rs.72.48 Crores which is to be met out of internal accruals of Rs.l4.88 Crores. The balance cost of Rs.57,60 Crores is to be met out of term loan from the Banks and the

same is tied up, The Company has commenced implementation of the scheme and substantial progress has been made.

With the completion of the above scheme the total wind energy capacity of the company would move to 27.4 MW as against the present 15,4 MW.
