Management Discussion and Analysis

As mentioned in one of our earlier AGM Reports, the quagmire of litigation the company was constrained to involve in respect of its leasehold due to the lower court order against the Company and also of late due to the mischief of the 1st less or and the 2nd less or has also substantially contributed to the woes of the company. In view of the looming uncertainty due to the said litigation, the company is not able to make optimum use of the premises, as there is the fear of losing the further investment as may be made for modifications and renovations to the premises from time to time if the verdict of the Courts is going to be adverse. This is in addition to the already invested huge amounts on the premises over a period of many years on various occasions. The Company is now passing throw a difficult phase as far as competing with the players in the field. As has been discussed earlier, the old model and out dated equipment is one of the main reasons for the lack of the generation of expected revenues of the company. In addition to this the severe financial stress being faced by company is also affecting the ability to keep the modernization need fulfilled. While this is the state of affairs in the operational front, Canara Bank has assigned its rights on the loan favoring Edelweiss Asset Reconstruction Company Ltd (EARC). On 18.03.2015 the EARC has granted a Negotiated Settlement (NS) of dues at a total consideration of Rs.250.00 lakhs payable in installments specified therein. In terms of the NS the company has paid an amount of Rs.25.00 lakhs as Upfront payment. The company has also informed EARC that since the revenues of the company are not as expected, the Board will be able to pay the settled amount to EARC only by way of selling the landed property belonging to the Company near Hyderabad. Accordingly efforts are being made to sell the land of Ac.13.625 cents belonging to the company in the open market and utilize the sale proceeds to clear off the settled amount to EARC. As the market conditions in the Telangana State are not favourable for the real estate after the division of the combined state of Andhra Pradesh, the company is finding it difficult to get the buyers for the expected sale price. However a call will be soon taken by the Board so that the amount due to EARC may be settled at the earliest.

Once the EARC amount is settled, the company will be debt free and will be attractive for new investors to infuse the required capital for making the company profitable once again and also for taking up new and different profitable projects. The Board is aiming to reach this stage at the earliest.
