Kulkarni and prepared the deed for registration. However, Dr. Laxman V. Kulkarni, expressed his desire for upward revision of the total consideration, as the prices of the Land at Nande have gone up considerably since 01.04.2008 i.e. the appointed date and the market price of the equity shares of the Company have not appreciated in line with the same.

Operations

The turnover of the Company has gone down marginally during the year. The operating margins were under pressure due to increase in input costs and stagnation in room rates. The operations of the Hotel at Aurangabad have now stabilised and have become self- sufficient.

However, the occupancy rate and Average Room Revenue (ARR) remained stagnant due to general economic slowdown and slackness in tourism sector.

Finance

The shortage of finance remained a major concern during the year. The parent company was not able to extend its helping hand due to its own problems. As a result the Company was not able to service its bank loans which ultimately turned into NPAs. The Bankers have taken symbolic possession of the assets of the Company under SURFAESI Act and passed it over to an Asset Reconstruction Company.

The management is striving hard to arrange funds for repayment of debt and working capital necessary for smooth running of the operations.

Current Year Prospects

The fortune of the hospitality industry has always been linked to the prospects of the tourism industry and general economic growth. On both fronts, the current year seems to be positive. Barring unforeseen difficulties, the Hotel is expected to continue on its path of steady growth. However, due to stagnant ARR, margins are likely to remain under pressure.

As mentioned earlier, shortage of finance remains a major factor affecting the performance of the Company.

During the first quarter of the current year, the F&B segment suffered a set-back due to general economic slow-down and severe draught in the region.

Operations

The Company continued its steady progress during the year under review. The Company improved its performance in terms of Sales and operating margins. The operations of the Hotel at Aurangabad have now stabilised and have become self-suffcient.

However, the occupancy rate and Average Room Revenue (ARR) remained stagnant due to general economic slowdown and slackness in tourism sector.

Current Year Prospects

The fortune of the hospitality industry has always been linked to the prospects of the tourism industry and general economic growth. On both fronts, the current year seems to offer nothing cheerful. Barring unforeseen diffculties, the Hotel is expected to continue on its path of steady growth. However, due to stagnant ARR, margins are likely to remain under pressure.

During the frst quarter of the current year, the F&B segment suffered a set-back due to general economic slow-down and severe drought in the region.

Dividend

In order to conserve the resources, the Board of Directors does not recommend any dividend for the year ended on 31st March 2013.

Conservation of Energy and Technology Absorption

The Company through constant monitoring, selection of energy saving equipments and education of staff and guests, endeavors to conserve and optimize the use of energy.

The Company does not undertake any research and development activity neither does it use any imported technology.

Operations

The improvement in performance continued during the year. The occupancy rate improved to about 65% compared to 52% in the last year. The Average Room Revenue (ARR) remained stagnant, but this constraint is faced by the enrite hotel industry.

The Company was able to register satisfactory operating profit, but could not report net profit due to high interest and depreciation. However, the Loss has been contained to considerable extent.

Current Year Prospects

The fourth foor is expected to be operational from October 2011. Thus the Hotel will start working with full capacity and will be ready to capture the tourist season in the second half of 2011-12. As such the turnover is expected to improve further. However, due to stagnant ARR, margins are likely to remain under pressure.

Change of Name

Your Company is a subsidiary of Dhanada Holdings Private Ltd. and thus part of the Dhanada Group. The use of the word 'Dhanada' in the name of the Company would establish this relationship clearly and help this Company to benefit from the goodwill created by Dhanada Group companies and Dhanada brand name. The Directors believe that this will have many strategic advantages.

Further, the Company has stakes in diversifed activities through its subsidiaries. To indicate these diversifed nature of business, the promoter would like to use the word "Corporation" in its name in place of "Hotels".

In view of the above, the Board of Directors in its meeting held on 29th July 2011 resolved to change the name of the Company to Dhanada Corporation Limited. The Registrar of Companies, Pune has made the proposed name available to the Company.

Your approval for the same is now being sought in the ensuing Annual General Meeting.
