CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

As required under clause 32 of the listing agreement, Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended 31st March, 2014 along with report of the auditors thereon are attached herewith.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS REPORT

The Directors present their report on the specified matters to the extent relevant or within limits that in their opinion are imposed by the company''s own competitive position, as under:-

Industry structure and development

No reliable and published data is available specifically on boron products industry. As boron minerals are not found in India, the basic inputs have to be essentially imported.

Opportunity, threats, risks and concerns

As, the basic input of the boron mineral is imported, thus timely availability of basic inputs at competitive prices in desired quality, composition and quantities has been, continues to be and expected to remain a matter of concern, risk and threat. The company is continuously engaged in exploring and developing alternative sources for imported raw material to minimize the risk.

Segment wise or product-wise performance The company is operating in a single reportable segment i.e. manufacturing and selling of Chemicals. Hence, segment- wise break-up is not applicable to operations of the company on standalone basis. The construction projects being executed by the subsidiary company has started generating revenue during the year. Segment wise information is given in the notes to accounts in Consolidated Balance Sheet.

Outlook

The policy of Government of India encouraging import of finished products at the cost of domestic industries is a real threat, thus the margins may come down resulting in unpredictable operations. Otherwise, the domestic market is expanding every year and the Company can sell more quantity, as its products are well known for its quality.

Internal control system & their adequacy

The Company has proper and adequate systems of internal controls to provide reasonable assurance that all assets are safeguarded; transactions are authorized and recorded correctly to ensure compliance with policies and statutes. Internal control systems have been found to be adequate and commensurate with the size and nature of the business of the company and are reviewed from time to time for further improvement.

Discussion on financial performance with respect to operational performance

The sales in current year stood at Rs. 7,018.14 Lacs compared to Rs. 7,411.83 Lacs in previous year. Production of boron products decreased by 0.37 % as compare to 16.93% increase in previous year.

CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

As required under clause 32 of the listing agreement, Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended 31st March, 2012 along with report of the auditors thereon are attached herewith.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS REPORT

The Directors present their report on the specified matters to the extent relevant or within limits that in their opinion are imposed by the company's own competitive position, as under:-

Industry structure and development

No reliable and published data is available specifically on boron products industry. As boron minerals are not found in India, the basic inputs have to be essentially imported.

Opportunity, threats, risks and concerns

As, the basic input of the boron product is to be imported, so timely availability of basic inputs at competitive prices in desired quality, composition and quantities has been, continues to be and expected to remain a matter of concern, risk and threat as well as opportunity. The company is continuously engaged in exploring and developing alternative sources for imported raw material to minimize the risk.

Segment wise or product-wise performance

The company is operating in a single reportable segment i.e. manufacturing and selling of Chemicals. Hence, segment-wise break-up is not applicable to operations of the company on standalone basis.

The construction projects being executed by the subsidiary company has not yet started generating revenue. Segment wise information on consolidated basis is given in the notes to accounts to consolidated balance sheet.

Outlook

The policy of Government of India encouraging import of finished products at the cost of domestic industries is a real threat and the margins may come down resulting in unpredictable operations. Otherwise, the domestic market is expanding every year and the Company can sell more quantity, as its products are well known for its quality.

Internal control system & their adequacy

The Company has proper and adequate systems of internal controls to provide reasonable assurance that all assets are safeguarded; transactions are authorized and recorded correctly to ensure compliance with policies and statutes.

Internal control systems have been found to be adequate and commensurate with the size and nature of the business of the company and are reviewed from time to time for further improvement.

Discussion on financial performance with respect to operational performance

The sales in current year stood at Rs 5104.32 Lacs compared to Rs 4423.82 Lacs in previous year. Production of boron products increase by 6.86% as compare to 25.72% in previous year.

Human Resources Development & Management

There are no material developments to be reported in the matter of human resources and industrial relations which were cordial throughout the year.

RESPONSIBILITY STATEMENT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Pursuant to the requirement under Section 217(2AA) of the Companies Act, 1956, with respect to Directors' Responsibility Statement, it is hereby confirmed:
