BUSINESS OVERVIEW

The Indian economy went through challenging times since the crisis in the Euro Zone with a cyclical down turn with growth slowdown, elevated current account deficit and persistent inflation. However, the Indian economy recovered in the second quarter of FY 13-14 recording a growth of 4.8 per cent. This follows a growth rate of 4.4 per cent in the first quarter (Q1) of the current financial year FY-14-15.

Automotive textile industry''s growth depends on performance of Automotive industry. The Indian auto industry witnessed a decline in both passenger vehicles and in commercial vehicles segment by 4.7% and 22.4% respectively. For most of last year, the economy was hamstrung by rising inflation and high interest rates, leading to relatively low consumer interest in buying new vehicles, and, in many cases, postponement of purchase. In the later part of the year, reduction in excise duty and partial lifting of mining bans did help in recovery of sentiment, but only to a limited extent. High delinquencies in vehicle financing led to tightening of lending norms by financiers, which badly impacted the sales of small commercial vehicles and passenger cars.

Though the Automobile industry was under pressure, Aunde India was consistent in achieving notable sales growth of 18.91% during the year and there was significant growth of 47.16% in exports. The company was able to maintain its profitability vanquishing the rising of cost of raw material, cost of labour, Inflation and the slowdown in automobile industry throughout the year. In the current year the company is expecting to maintain its export sale and will have road map to focus on the domestic market as well so as to maintain its market competitiveness and to become a market leader in auto textile segment.

BUSINESS OVERVIEW

FY 2012-13 was a challenging year for the economy, both globally and in India. The world economy grew by a mere 3.1% in 2012 as compared to 3.9% in the previous year. The domestic situation in India was influenced by these global trends and the ripple effect of a global slowdown was felt. After years of strong positive growth, the Indian economy slowed down to a GDP of 5% from 6.5% in the previous year.

The automotive textile industry is highly dependent on the growth of the Automobile Industry and the sluggish growth of automobile industry suppreses the growth of auto textile industry. AUNDE India is also highly dependent upon the OEM''s demand for the seat fabric manufactured by the Company. The demand for passenger vehicles was affected mainly by weak sentiments, high cost of ownership, high interest rates, fuel prices and reduction in discretionary spends. Overall growth in Domestic passenger vehicle industry was flat in FY 2012-13.

Aunde India has continued on its growth path by achieving a milestone turnover of Rs. 125 Crores recording a highest growth of 36.58%. Company''s exports of Rs. 16.50 Crores have contributed to boost sales. Going forward, company is hoping to get ample exports orders in current year. The company is determined to maintain its turnover this year as well. The Company''s efforts will be aiming towards maintaining its market share of 40% by offering range of automotive fabrics and to be competitive in the domestic market. The exports are growing slower due to global slowdown, however, the company is hoping that once the global markets will start gearing up, the company is very confident that it will be able to locate new end users through AUNDE Global Group and expand its exports market as well.

OPERATING RESULTS & PROFITS

The Company witnessed a growth of 19% during the year, as the automotive industry showed moderate growth of 7.2% in FY2012. The Company's domestic sales grew by 16% to Rs. 9010.03 Lacs and exports grew by 3% to Rs. 172.30 Lacs. The Company has earned a Profit before tax, depreciation & amortization, finance cost and exceptional items of Rs.1556.39 Lacs as compared to Rs. 1287.69 in the previous year. The Company earned net profit of Rs.349.91 Lacs as compared to net profit of Rs. 322.17 Lacs during the previous year.

The auto sector reported a robust growth rate of 26 percent in the last two years (2010-2012). However, the sector has shown a sluggish growth of 7.2% percent in 2012. The trend is likely to stay in FY 2013, citing a high ownership costs and slow rural income growth, with easing of interest rates expected in the last quarter of the current fiscal the demand is expected to get a fillip. However, the rising incomes, improved affordability and untapped markets present promising opportunities for automobile manufacturers in India. The sale of passenger vehicles is expected to double in the next four years and growth anticipated is higher than the growth achieved in the past 10 years.

The sluggish growth of automobile sector has affected the overall growth of the company in terms of sales and profits. However, the company has achieved a turnover of Rs. 9182.43 Lacs recording a growth of 19% during the year and export turnover of Rs. 172.30 Lacs during the year which is significant in terms of sales growth.

BUSINESS OVERVIEW

The Indian economy, which recorded a growth rate of 8.6% during FY 2010-11, started showing softening indicators in second half of FY 2010-11. This was mainly due to inflationary pressures and continued anti-inflationary monetary steps taken by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) coupled with the rising fiscal deficit of the Government. In the current year, the inflation continued to remain at higher levels. On the foreign exchange front, higher crude oil prices, lower net capital inflows and lower export growth in the last six months of the year due to worsening global economic scenario, adversely affected the Indian currency.

The automotive industry was affected by the overall macro economic factors discussed above. In particular, the demand was impacted due to higher interest rates and slowing economy. Further, sharp increases in petrol prices adversely impacted the demand for petrol vehicles.

The company which is reliant on the automotive industry expects that the positive inflow of investment by foreign automakers and favorable government support to the upcoming projects will boost sales of auto industry and in turn company's sales will have significant growth in the next year.
