REVIEW OF FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE AND THE STATE OF COMPANY''S AFFAIRS

Your Company performed well in Financial Year (FY) 2015-16 with a highest ever made operating profit and net profit. Your Company
demonstrated a strong financial performance on the back of financial discipline, domain proficiency and in-house innovation
capabilities.

The key performance highlights are as under:

- The revenue from operations decreased by 5.92% to Rs.86923.96 lacs from Rs.92393.53 lacs reported in the previous year.
However, post adjustment of power backup solutions business (discontinued with effect from April 01, 2015), the revenue from
operations (''Adjusted Sales'') increased by 5.77% to Rs.86923.96 lacs from Rs.82184.70 lacs in the previous year. This was the
result of our increased market share in the arena of smart metering and power infrastructure on the strength of our in-house
innovation and engineering capabilities with constant cost discipline. The present government''s increased thrust on revival of
power utilities/discoms through smart grid and smart metering, mainly to improve their financial health by stoppage of power
transmission and distribution losses, has helped the Company in increasing its market share in the arena of smart metering and
power infrastructure.

- Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (Operating Profit) increased by 2.41% to Rs.13841.10 lacs from

Rs.13515.45 lacs in previous year, as a result of the higher adjusted sales, improved cost discipline and effective material
management.

- Finance cost reduced to Rs.2887.51 lacs from Rs.3323.93 lacs in the previous year on account of effective utilization of
available funds and reduction in the higher-cost debts. Further, the gross debts decreased by 35% to Rs.23303.88 lacs from
Rs.36056.65 lacs in the previous year.

- Profit before exceptional and extraordinary items raised by 11% to Rs.9554.49 lacs from Rs.8582.16 lacs in the previous year.

- Exceptional items of Rs.235.86 lacs for the year ended March 31, 2016 represent gain on disposal of its power backup solutions
business. Exceptional items of Rs.1743.58 lacs for the year ended March 31, 2015 pertain to provision for diminution in value of
investment in Genus SA Brazil. In the best interest of the Company in longer perspective, the Board of Directors of the Company
has approved the disinvestment through transfer by way of sale of shares of the joint venture namely Genus S.A., Brazil or
disinvestment through other legitimate procedures/ways involving write-off of the investment (or financial commitment) of

through RIICO Limited against damages claimed by the Company towards IOCL fire accident in year 2009.

- Net profit increased by 47.68% to Rs.7845.06 lacs from Rs.5312.34 lacs in the previous year mainly due to reduction in finance
cost, gain on disposal of its power backup solutions business and due to provision for diminution in value of investment in Genus
SA Brazil in the previous year.

(diluted) (after extraordinary items) for the year ended March 31, 2016 stood at Rs.3.04.

REVIEW OF FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE AND THE STATE OF COMPANY'S AFFAIRS

Your Company has continued to deliver a strong financial performance in the financial year 2014-15 recording the highest ever made turnover and operating profit in the history of Company. The key factors of the financial performance of the Company, during the year under review, are as under

- Revenue from operations grew by 18% to Rs. 92,393.53 Lacs in 2014-15 from Rs. 78,438.54 Lacs in the previous year as a result of continued trust of power utilities on smart metering solutions and smart power infrastructures to improve their financial health, mainly through stoppage of power transmission and distribution losses.

- Operating profit (EBITDA) mounted to Rs. 13,515.45 Lacs in FY 2014-15 from Rs. 10,749.78 Lacs in previous year, as results of the increased sales at reasonable margins, optimum procurement & utilization of raw materials with Lean manufacturing techniques and effective execution of cost lowering measures/techniques such as Kaizen, Lean Manufacturing and more, across all levels & functions in Company.

- In accordance with the provisions of Schedule II of the Companies Act, 2013, the Company has revised the estimated useful lives of fixed assets with effect from April 01,2014. Accordingly, the net-book value of the fixed assets as on April 01, 2014, is depreciated on a prospective basis over the remaining useful life, wherever applicable. This change in accounting estimate has resulted in increase in depreciation and amortization expenses for the year ended March 31, 2015 by Rs. 93.17 Lacs with a corresponding decrease in the net book value of the fixed assets and reserves and surplus of the Company. In addition, as per the provision of Schedule II read with notification dated August 29, 2014 issued by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, the Company has opted to charge off to statement of profit and loss the carrying amount of certain fixed assets, amounting to Rs. 84.46 Lacs, where remaining useful life was "Nil" as on April 01,2014.

- Finance cost decreased to Rs. 3,323.93 Lacs from Rs. 3,563.22 Lacs in the previous year. This decrease was mainly attributable to low cost borrowings and effective utilization of available funds.

- Profit before exceptional and extraordinary items increased by 40% to Rs. 8,582.16 Lacs from Rs. 6,129.72 Lacs in previous year.

- Exceptional items of Rs. 1,743.58 Lacs for the year ended March 31,2015 pertains to provision for diminution in value of investment in Genus SA BraziL During the year under review, the Board has decided to write-off the investment in the said JV after the due/necessary compliances and approvals. The Board opinioned that the financial scenario and sales were worsened in the Joint Venture "Genus SA, Brazil" and thus the Board had to take the tough decision of writing off the investments in the Joint Venture. Though this has adversely impacted the bottom line of the Company but in longer perspective it will help the Company.

Extraordinary items amounting to Rs. 190.37 Lacs (net of tax Rs. 50.49 Lacs) relates to relief received from Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) through RIICO Limited against damages claimed by the Company towards lOCL's fire accident in the year 2009.

Net profit reduced by 12% to Rs. 5,312.34 Lacs from Rs. 6,046.79 Lacs in the previous year mainly due to provision for diminution in value of investment in Genus SA Brazil and non availability of MAT credit in 2014-15 as available in previous year.

- Earnings per share (Basic) (after extraordinary items) for year ended March 31,2015 stood at Rs. 2.07.

- Net worth of the Company increased to Rs. 48,431.25 I from Rs. 43,112.75 Lacs as at March 31,2014.

REVIEW OF FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE

In 2012-13, India witnessed sharp slowdown in GDP growth. Industrial activities across all sectors of economy of the country remained subdued. The power sector also underperformed mainly because of government''s low spending and mounting AT&C losses of power discoms. This has also impacted the industries connected to power transmission and distribution sectors. However, Genus remained capable to deliver sustainable performance on the back of our founding principles of hard work and excellence in everything we act upon.

During the year under review, the income from operations of the Company was Rs.66970.30 lacs against Rs.71729.14 lacs in the previous year, registering a slight decline of 6.63%. The low spending of power discoms on strengthening the existing T&D infrastructure including metering systems due to their poor financial health owing to high AT&C losses, contributed mainly to this slight fall in sales of the Company. However, this situation is likely to improve on account of the government''s initiatives for constant power reforms. Going forward, recently, the government has announced a scheme for Financial Restructuring of State Distribution Companies, to improve the financial health of SEBs so that these companies can spend more and participate aggressively in the ongoing power sector''s reforms.

The Company''s net profit slumped nearly 32 per cent to Rs.4457 lacs from Rs.6610 lacs in the previous year due to recognition of unutilized MAT credit of Rs.2047 lacs in the previous year.

During the year under review, our export sales increased to Rs.1560.62 lacs from Rs.483.19 lacs in previous year due to our increased focus on export through specific business strategy, mainly to focus on untapped overseas markets.

During the year under review, the Company was able to reduce its finance cost to Rs.2536.57 lacs as compared to Rs.4744.73 lacs in the previous year. This reduction in finance cost has positive impact on Company''s bottom line. The Company has reduced leveraging (debts) and reshuffled its high cost bearing borrowings.

The operating profit (EBITDA) for the year under review went down to Rs.8030.73 lacs from Rs.9962.59 lacs in previous year, mainly due to decline in sales and higher employee compensation cost. The higher employee compensation expenses were mainly due to annual salary increases and aggressive recruitments to support the Company''s growing business plans.

The basic earnings per share (EPS) (before extraordinary items) for the year ended March 31, 2013 was Rs.2.77 as against Rs. 4.21 in the previous year. The basic EPS (after extraordinary items) for the year ended March 31, 2012 was Rs.2.80 as against Rs. 4.21 in the previous year.

At the end of financial year 2012-13, the net worth of the Company increased to Rs.48792.89 lacs as compared to net worth of Rs. 44559.69 lacs at the end of FY 2011-12. The book value per share having face value of Re.1/- increased to Rs. 30.71 as at 31.03.2013 from Rs. 28.04 as at 31.03.2012.

During the year under review, the Company has written off demurrages, deductions and bad debts of Rs.1728.30 lacs, which mainly represent various deductions, including liquidated damages, made by indenting agencies, pursuant to the terms of contracts of supplies.

As the Company''s subsidiary has not undertaken any commercial activity since its inception, there was no income or profit/loss during the year under review.

OPERATIONS AND BUSINESS PERFORMANCE

Kindly refer to Management Discussion & Analysis and Corporate Governance, which form part of this Report.

Your Directors have recommended a dividend of 10% i.e. Re.0.10 per equity share on equity shares of the face value of Re.1/- each (tax free in the hands of the shareholders) for the financial year ended March 31, 2013 (Previous Year: 10% i.e. Re.0.10 per equity share of face value of Re.1/- each). The proposed dividend, if approved by the members at the Annual General Meeting, will absorb a sum of Rs.158.91 lacs (excluding dividend tax) for the year ended March 31, 2013 (Previous Year: Rs.158.91 lacs).

EMPLOYEE STOCK OPTION SCHEME 2012 (ESOS – 2012)

Pursuant to the approval of the shareholders, your Company had instituted the Employees'' Stock Option Scheme (ESOS-2012) for the permanent employees of the Company working in India or out of India and eligible directors (excluding promoter directors). The Company has reserved issuance of 7945000 Equity Shares of Re.1/- each for offering to eligible employees of the Company under ESOS-2012. The Compensation Committee administers and monitors ESOS-2012 of the Company. The Compensation Committee evaluates the performance and other criteria of employees and approves the grant of options. These options vest with employees over a specified period subject to fulfillment of certain conditions as prescribed by SEBI.

On January 30, 2013, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved the grant of 1815600 Stock Options to the eligible employees of the Company under the said ESOS-2012 at an exercise price of Rs.13.30/- per share. Further, on February 15, 2013, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved the grant of 582000 Stock Options to the eligible employees of the Company under ESOS-2012 at an exercise price of Rs.11.80/- per share. The said prices were the latest available closing price, prior to the date of the meeting of the Compensation Committee, in which options were granted, on the stock exchange having higher trading volume. The options would vest over a maximum period of 6 years or such other period as may be decided by the Compensation Committee from the date of grant based on specified criteria. Upon vesting, employees are eligible to apply and secure allotment of Company''s shares at a price determined on the date of grant of options. The Options can be exercised during a period of three years from the date of vesting. No shares have been vested as on March 31, 2013.

The Company has obtained a certificate from the Auditors of the Company that the Scheme has been implemented in accordance with the SEBI Guidelines and the resolution passed by the shareholders. The Certificate would be placed for inspection by members at the Annual General Meeting. The applicable disclosures as required under the SEBI Guidelines on ESOPs are given at Annexure-II to this Report.

MAJOR EVENTS

(i) New Manufacturing Unit at Ramchandrapura

The commercial production at newly constructed manufacturing unit at Ramchandrapura, Jaipur, which was scheduled to begin in March, 2013, has been delayed due to delay in getting subsidy approval from Department of Electronics & Information Technology, Government of India and some other unavoidable external reasons. The commercial production at the said unit is expected to start in March, 2014.

(ii) Scheme of Arrangement

The Scheme of Arrangement (the "Scheme”), which provides for the amalgamation of ''Genus Paper Products Limited ("GPPL”) into ''Genus Power Infrastructures Limited'' ("GPIL”) and demerger of ''Non Power Infrastructure Undertaking /Business'' of Genus Power Infrastructures Limited into Genus Paper & Boards Limited (the Resulting Company) after getting all clearances from the Board of Directors and all stakeholders/ creditors has been filed with the High Court of Judicature at Allahabad. The matter is now before the Hon''ble High Court of Judicature at Allahabad, for its approval to the Scheme.

As per the aforesaid Scheme of Arrangement, in case of merger, 24 (twenty four) equity shares of Re.1 each of GPIL will be given for every 100 (hundred) equity shares of Re.1 each of GPPL. And in case of demerger, 1 (one) equity share of Re.1 each of the Resulting Company will be given for every 1 (one) equity share of Re.1 each of GPIL in addition to existing shareholding of GPIL. The new equity shares of the Resulting Company will be listed on the concerned stock exchanges, subject to applicable procedures and approvals. This restructuring exercise would help the Company to become a pure power infrastructure company and will result in creation of a simplified and linear entity structure for housing the distinct businesses. This restructuring proposal would result in enhancement of shareholder value leading to operational efficiencies and synergies and facilitate the management of the each company to vigorously pursue growth and expansion opportunities.

SUBSIDIARY COMPANY

The Company does not have any material non-listed Indian subsidiary.

GROWTH DRIVERS/EXPANSIONS

In our continuous endeavour to keep up the growth momen- tum, the Company has set up a new manufacturing unit at Haridwar, Uttarakhand (a tax free zone) with state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for manufacturing of Electronic Energy Meters (EEM), Inverters, UPS, Modem, etc. The commercial production commenced from 22.03.2010. This apart, the Company has already increased its Meter and Inverter/UPS manufacturing capacity at its existing manufacturing facilities. This would take its total installed capacity to 65 lakhs meters and 6 lakhs Inverter/UPS units per annum. The expansion would not only increase its market share but would also improve its revenues & profitability in the years ahead.

Recently, Genus has been awarded with STS (Standard Transfer Specification) certification. The Standard Transfer Specification (STS) has become recognized as the only globally accepted open standard for prepayment systems, ensuring inter-operability between system components from different manufacturers of prepayment systems. The STS has found widespread application, initially in South Africa and subsequently in many developed and developing countries. To date, over 10-million STS-compliant meters have been installed at 400 utilities in 30 countries around the world. STS having been published as an International Standard by IEC in 2007 is internationally recognized.

Moreover, your Company during the year under review, continued to widen and also add value to its product portfolio meeting expectations of its Stake-owners. Genus launched a range of new/improved products such as web enabled keypad based STS-20 compliant Poly Phase Prepaid Energy Meter, complete Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) solutions for energy auditing, Group Meter Solution comprising smart meters, 19" Rack Mounted ABT Compliant Class 0.2S Meter for substation and grid metering with AMR and data analysis software for feeder management, DIN mounted meter for energy conservation, BOLT (Build, Operate, Lease and Transfer) solutions for Distribution Transformer Closed Loop Metering, Street Light Management Solution (SLMS), complete range of Solar Hybrid Inverters, Digital Inverters, complete range of Lift Inverters, Special Application Pump Inverter, enhanced High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS) / Low Voltage Distribution System (LVDS), SCADA System, etc.

EXPORTS

During the year under review, export of the Company was at Rs. 605.14 lakhs.

As per worldwide market survey reports, there are around 1.7 Billion electricity meters installed in the world. It is estimated 75% of the installed base still consists of Electromechanical meters, while only 25% of them are static (electronic) type. The growth of the Electricity Metering industry has tradition- ally been driven by new construction and replacement of old meters. More and more countries are planning and enforcing regulations to ensure replacement of all existing Electromechanical meters and new installation meters are Electronic in nature for reasons such as tamper prevention, data reading, inclusion of communication features etc. As a result there lies a huge requirement of Electronic electricity meters worldwide. As per an estimate, the demand of electronic electricity meters will be for 125 Million or more every year. Our company is formulating an Export Strategy to tap this vast opportunity thereby increasing its overseas customer base.

Today, the world is moving towards advanced metering such as AMR (Automated Meter Reading), AMI (Automated Metering Infrastructure), AMM (Automated Meter Management). These require meters based on advanced technology and usage of different types of communication modems that permit utilities to read electronic meters over long distance. You would be happy to know that the company has developed this capability and is geared up to participate in international tenders for such meters.

Our company through its overseas alliance is continuing its focus in Brazil for export of its electronic meters. SAARC and Middle East Countries too are in the process of becoming large consumers of these electronic meters.

Our company has successfully developed STS compliant Keypad based prepaid meters, which are in great demand in African countries. These meters have already been exported to an African country. Majority of African countries are using Prepaid Meters and through this newly developed Keypad Prepaid Meters, the Company is confident of tapping the market in African countries aggressively in near future.

Genus with a vision to truly go global in Power Backup Solutions ventured deeper into developing nations last year by spreading its wings through Africa, Middle East, SAARC countries and even USA. The power back up solutions comprising Inverters, UPS, and Solar Products have been well accepted by most emerging nations as a cost effective solution to their power crisis. With global warming triggering a growing demand for solar products, the company is also tapping US, UK and European markets. At present the majority of International business is to Western, Eastern & Central Africa, SAARC nations and the United States of America. With continuous new developments and additions in its UPS / Inverter product portfolio, the company is expecting a high growth in this division in the coming years.
