MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS REPORT About Company Introduction

This is only a summary. Investors should read the following summary with the Risk Factors mentioned and the more detailed information about us and our financial statements included elsewhere in this Information Memorandum Summary of Industry The global pulp and paper industry consists of about 5000 industrial pulp and paper mills, and an equal number of very small companies. The annual global paper and paperboard production was approximately 382.0 million tonnes in 2006. It is expected to increase to 402.0 million tonnes by 2010 and 490.0 million tonnes by 2020. USA is the largest market for paper products and commands high per capita consumption of 260 Kgs. Asia''s main markets are China, Japan, India, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

The paper and paperboard industry has witnessed a radical shift in the last decade. Due to the strong economic growth in both China and India, the demand for paper and paperboard is increasing rapidly and they are expected to emerge as an important market for pulp & paper. The share of fast developing Asian markets, excluding Japan, in global consumption has increased to 34% by 2010 from 32% in 2006.

The share of mature markets like North America and Europe would fall to 50% by 2010 from 52% in 2006. It is expected that Asian market would account for 60% of global incremental production during the period 2004-2020.

Indian Paper Industry

The Indian Paper Industry accounts for about 1.6% of the world production of paper and paperboard. The estimated turnover of the industry is Rs 25,000 crore (USD 5.95 billion) approximately and its contribution to the exchequer is around Rs. 2918 crore (USD 0.69 billion). The industry provides employment to more than 0.12 million people directly and 0.34 million people indirectly. The industry was de-licensed effective

from July, 1997 by the Government of India; foreign participation is permissible. Most of the paper mills are in existence for a long time and hence present technologies fall in a wide spectrum ranging from oldest to the most modern. The mills use a variety of raw material viz. wood, bamboo, recycled fibre, bagasse, wheat straw, rice husk, etc.; approximately 35% are based on chemical pulp, 44% on recycled fibre and 21% on agro-residues. The geographical spread of the industry as well as market is mainly responsible for regional balance of production and consumption.

With added capacity of approximately 0.8 million tons during 2007-08 the operating capacity of the industry currently stands at 9.3 million tons. During this fiscal year, domestic production of paper and paperboard is estimated to be 7.6 million tons. As per industry guesstimates, over all paper consumption (including newsprint) has now touched 8.86 million tons and per capita consumption is pegged at 8.3 kg.

Demand of paper has been covering around 8% for some time. During the period 2002-07 while newsprint registered a growth of 13%, Writing & Printing, Containerboard, Carton board and others registered growth of 5%, 11%, 9% and 1% respectively. So far, the growth in paper industry has mirrored the growth in GDP and has grown on an average 6-7 per cent over the last few years. India is the fastest growing market for paper globally and it presents an exciting scenario; paper consumption is poised for a big leap forward in sync with the economic growth and is estimated to touch 13.95 million tons by 2015-16.

The futuristic view is that growth in paper consumption would be in multiples of GDP and hence an increase in consumption by one kg per capita would lead to an increase in demand of 1million tons. As per industry estimates, paper production are likely to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% while paper consumption will grow at a CAGR of 9% till 2013-14.

The import of pulp & paper products is likely to show a growing trend. Foreign funds interest in the Indian paper sector is growing. IFC, the investment arm of the World Bank is already associated with at least three of the IPMA member mills. The increasing demand for paper brings with it new challenges of economies of scale, efficient usage of resources, need to develop and expand sustainable use of fibre, and value chain management, etc. Despite the fact that the Indian Paper Industry holds its importance to the national economy, unfortunately it stands fragmented. Paper sector is dominated by small and medium size units; number of mills of capacity 50000 tons per annum or more is not more than 25. Less than half a dozen mills account for almost 90% production of newsprint in the country. There is a growing need to modernize the Indian mills, improve productivity and build new capacities.

Demand for Kraft paper

With increased economic activity the demand for paper especially Kraft paper, industrial paper, duplex boards, and corrugating material is too poised for healthy growth. Industrial paper is the highest value segment in the paper industry and accounts for 41% of the total market size.

Kraft paper is usually the brown paper that is commonly used for manufacturing brown bags, cartons, etc. It is largely used to manufacture corrugated boxes, bags, sacks, etc. However, corrugated boxes account for 85-90 per cent of the total demand for Kraft paper. Demand for Kraft paper depends on the growth in consumer durables, the manufacturing industry, horticulture, FMCG etc. Strong growth in end-user sectors such as pharmaceuticals, horticulture, ready to eat foods, marine products, textiles, consumer durables and other industrial products is expected to result in a buoyant growth for Kraft paper. Duplex boards which are mainly used as primary packaging for various products such as pharmaceuticals, cigarettes, matchboxes, agarbattis, toothpastes and other similar consumer items is witnessing robust demand. Growing agro-based sector, including horticultural products, fresh and canned fruits, etc. This, together with the Government policy to replace wooden crates by containerboard boxes particularly in fresh fruit packaging, will create new demand for corrugated boxes Demand Drivers for Kraft paper Consumption of industrial paper is closely linked to growth in the packaging industry, industrial production and development in packaging technology and substitution by other materials. Following are other important factors contributing to demand growth in industrial paper:-

a) The growing popularity of ready-to-eat products, liquid products and other perishable products will result in higher demand for attractive and durable packaging, thus increasing demand for Kraft paper and duplex boards._

b) Branding is a big driver of packaging, as manufacturers try to create identifiable and attractive brands. With more and more consumers opting for branded goods, demand for Kraft paper and duplex boards is expected to remain strong in the future.

c) With increase in malls, departmental stores and other such modern retail formats, manufacturers use innovative packaging solutions to increase their sales.

d) The fastest-growing end-use segments for duplex boards are foodstuffs, consumer durables, garments, pharmaceuticals, cigarettes and matchsticks. Gradual shift in population from rural to urban as well as change in lifestyle due to improvement in the standard of living, demand for duplex boards is expected to explode.

Kraft Paper:- Manufacturing Process of Kraft & Duplex Board:

Manufacturing process of Kraft & Duplex paper consists of the following stages:

1. Pulping

2. Paper Making

3. Finishing & Storage PULPING:

The waste paper is so chosen that no deinking process is involved. Waste Paper is fed into the high speed hydra pulper filled with plain water and rotated to form a mass known as water turbulence. The mass is discharged over the wire mash. Water collected is taken away. This will give the paper higher bursting strength.

PAPER MAKING:

Paper can be defined as a sheet or continuous web of fibers. The strength of the paper is obtained by interlacing of fibers. The fibers in water suspension with requisite consistency are allowed to pass over the endless wire from where the drained away and the paper after pressing and drying are reeled. The strength of paper is determined largely by the length, diameter and thickness of wall and flexibility and bonding characteristics of fiber used. The bulk density, porosity, uniformity and other properties are dependent on the inherent qualities of fibers as well as on the treatment given in the process of manufacture. Mixing, Cleaning and Refining are done in this stage. Waste paper pulp is properly mixed in a Beater. Any dust if remaining, is thoroughly removed. This pulp is passed through Vibrating Screen, Centrifugal Cleaner and refined in Disc Refiners.

PAPER FORMING:

The refined slurry, treated with additive chemicals and binding agents is pumped into Head Box of Paper Machine and couched on to the moving moulds which takes it to Press Rolls and paper is formed. The excess water has been squeezed out and paper formed is taken to MG Drier for drying by steam and reeling.
