PERFORMANCE

Your Company delivered another year of splendid performance despite a very difficult market scenario that was characterised by extremely volatile financial, commodity and consumer markets.

Your Company, by maintaining its strong leadership position in proven fields, achieved the turnover of Rs. 86,311.22 lacs (previous year Rs. 51,530.81 lacs). This was due to robust business traction across the EPC and manufacturing divisions. Further, the year ended with an impressive all around operational performance with Profit before Tax at Rs. 8373.90 lacs (previous year Rs. 4,668.29 lacs), a healthy rise of 79.38 % over the previous year, whereas Profit after Tax increased by 84.08 %.

These results were achieved through a focussed strategy of leveraging upon our strong presence in the existing industry verticals and at the same time, by tapping the opportunity presented by a growing economy.

During the year, one of the prestigious projects bagged by the company includes a complete water management system project for HMEL-Guru Gobind Singh Refinery of 9 MMTPA capacity coming up at Bhatinda, Punjab at a value of more than Rs. 300 crores. The complete package comprised Raw Water Treatment facility, DM/RO Plant and Effluent Treatment with modern eco-friendly technologies. This has given us the confidence that going forward, HDO can look at complete water management in the petroleum refineries.

The manufacturing facility has achieved another milestone of manufacturing a Huge Pressure Vessel called Autoclave which is the most critical equipment in Uranium ore Processing. This equipment was manufactured under stringent quality checks and inspection by Llyods and Bateman of South Africa. Our manufacturing facility has been upgraded with latest fabrication equipments like CNC tube sheet drilling machine, plasma cutting machine, plate bending machine and gearability machine at our factory premises.

Engineers India Ltd has accredited HDO with higher fabrication of stainless steel and carbon steel -Pressure Vessels from 30 MT weight to 100 MT and tubesheet thickness from 100 mm to 240 mm and for critical metallurgy like low temperature steel non-ferrous metal and clad construction equipment.

DIVIDEND

The company aims at wealth creation for shareholders. Towards this end, the dividend policy has been structured with a view towards effective balancing of the twin objectives of appropriately rewarding shareholders with cash dividend and ploughing back a portion of the earnings to meet the companys future investment requirements.

Keeping in view the overall performance of your Company, your Directors are pleased to recommend a dividend of Rs. 0.80 per Equity Share on face value of Rs.2/- each for the year 2009-10. (2008-09: @ Rs. 1.00 per equity share) on the enhanced share capital after the bonus issue in the ratio of 1:1.

TRANSFER TO RESERVES

The Company proposes to transfer Rs. 2500 lacs to the General Reserve out of the amount available for appropriations, and an amount of Rs. 2379.97 lacs is proposed to be retained in the Prof it & Loss Account.

ACQUISITION OF DAVYMARKHAM

The Company continues to pursue the strategy of acquiring companies , globally, which complement our capabilities, provide access to niche skill sets and expand our presence in select geographies.

Hindustan Dorr-Oliver has acquired a 100% stake in Sheffield, UK based DavyMarkham through its wholy owned subsidiary IMCO (22010) Ltd in UK. The acquisition has been funded entirely through the companys internal accruals as well as short term debt from banks.

DavyMarkham Ltd. is a 180 year old manufacturing company involved in the design, manufacture and assembly of large equipment used in mining, quarrying, power generation, oil, gas and nuclear sectors. DavyMarkham Ltd. provides total engineering capability for extremely large turnkey projects, and manages the project throughout the whole process from engineering design, fabrication, machining to installation and commissioning of heavy and complex components and assemblies.

FUTURE PROSPECTS

The companys efforts are consistently directed towards the upgradation of its strategic capability to effectively address the challenge of growth in an increasingly competitive market scenario. The vision of becoming a global corporate entity through world-class performance has been put into action through creation of multiple business drivers of growth which has synergies with existing skill and competency.

HDO continues to tap opportunities in emerging as well as existing industry verticals some of which include

a) Material Handling systems

b) Iron Ore Beneficiation and Pelletization

c) Nuclear Power Plant: Component/Manufacture

d) Coal Washeries

e) Power Sector

f) Hydrocarbon sector

Material Handling Systems

Material handling is an important aspect of all process industries. Material handling equipment like long distance Belt Conveyors, Rapid loading systems. Belt trippers, Screw Conveyors, Stackers, Reclaimer, etc. are required for the transfer of mined ore to Process plant areas. HDO has a technical tie up with FMC Technologies Limited Inc., a US based leading global player in this area and has also bid for material handling systems for BCCL, CCL and Jindal Steel tenders.

Iron OreBeneficiation and Pelletization

The natural mineral resource Iron Ore has become the focus point due to rapid growth in Indian Infrastructure industry and rapid urbanization. Demand of steel is increasing day by day and Indian Industry is seriously exploring options to benef iciate Iron ore fines, which are being exported to global market.

The process of converting Iron ore fines into uniform size iron ore pellets is called pelletization and these can be in blast furnace or in DRI Kiln. The pelletization plants are a highly profitable proposition for India as we need not dispose them at throw away price. Instead, they can be converted into pellets and sold at a premium value.

HDO has already tied up with the world leader for Technology of pelletization and has bid for jobs with NMDC/JSPL.

Nuclear Power Plant: Component/Manufacture

After signing the Nuclear Policy with Super Powers, Nuclear Power Plants has become a potential area of growth. Large global technology players have ventured into India to erect nuclear power plants in the country. HDO manufacturing facility is being upgraded with U-2/U-3 certifications from ASME-USA and NQA-1 certification to undertake nuclear component manufacturing. Moreover, the experience of Davy Markham shall also find effective utilisation at our manufacturing works in the accomplishment of this task.

CoalWasheries

India is endowed with 253 billion tons of Coal Reserves and the proven reserves stand at about 98 billion tons, corresponding to 10% of worlds total proven reserves. Indian Coals are low in sulphur, however they have very high Ash Content (30% to 45%), compared to Ash in coal at developed countries (15 to 20%). The coal washeries help reduce ash content by 7-8 per cent in the coal and improve its calorific value translating to further benefits such as improvement in thermal efficiency, plant load factor, savings in freight, savings in ash re-handling and land and reduction in operation & maintenance cost. As per the Economic Survey report: CIL has envisaged setting up new coal washeries with an estimated investment of about Rs 2,500 crores and CIL wants the private sector Indian and foreign companies to set up non-coking coal washeries, on "Build, Own and Operate" basis. HDO is well geared up to take up this challenge, and has tied up with MsTangshan Guohua Technology Company Ltd., China as their technology partners to bid for the coal washeries.

Power sector

HDO has excellent engineering and execution skills to provide the complete utilities package for Power plants. Our capabilities include:

- Water Management systems

- Cooling Towers

- Ash Handing system

- Coal Handling system

- HVAC

- Fire Fighting system

- Associated Electrical and Control systems

- Civil and Structural works for all the above systems

Hydrocarbon Sector

The hydrocarbon sector in India has seen rapid growth in the past few years, and has been a focus area for HDO. We supply a wide range of high pressure equipments to the hydrocarbon industry which demands high level of engineering and manufacturing skill. We provide pressure vessels, heat exchangers, tankages, spheres, indirect fired heaters, pressure parts for boilers, instrumentation and piping packages.

We have a highly skilled in-house engineering team and a world class manufacturing facility at Vatva, Ahmedabad. We also have an excellent Testing facility, with R&D lab which ensures quality of all equipments shipped out of the factory. We are certified by all major consultants like EIL, UDHE, Samsung, PDIL, Toyo, Linde, Jacobs, etc. Our clients include both government entities and private players, such as Reliance Industries (RIL), Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL), Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Gas Authority of India (GAIL) and Hindustan Petroleum, etc.
