Private Limited. We amended our Memorandum of Association by means of a resolution
of Our sharesholders on February 14, 2006 to convert into a public company with effect
therefrom; and consequently the word ' Private ' was, upon the issuance on April 27,
2006 of a fresh certificate of corporation consequent upon change of name on conversion
to a public company, deleted from our name.

Our Registered Office is at A-6, Swasthya Vihar, New Delhi-110092, India.

On November 1, 2000 we acquired the business of our Quadrangle division from Mr. Jeyadev
Parthasarathy, who wasat that time the sole proprietor of the business, for a consideration of
1546 Equity Shares of our Company. The transfer of these Equity Shares to Mr. Parthasarathy
was contingent upon him remaining in employment with us for a certain period, which he failed
to do, and therefore these Equity Shares were never transferred to him.
