Year under review has witnessed multiple challenges which has affected the operations of the Company and has resulted in lowering of turnover and profit too. Setting up and alignment of expansion plant, pollution treatment constraints and weak international demand etc. factors has adversely affected the production of the Company for few months which in turn resulted in reduction of turnover besides that fall in finished goods prices due to market sentiments has also further supported reduction in sales realization and thereby turnover. On other hand increased key raw material prices, increase in general overheads on account of inflationary pressure and lower absorption of overheads due to lower plant utilization has impacted adversely to increase overall cost of operations and thereby has resulted lowering of profit during year ended as compared with last year.

The business segment of the Company is full of challenges with multiple variables affecting the operations and business of the Company.

The coming year looks challenging mainly on demand front, availability of manpower as well as compliance for stringent pollution norms. However, the management has charted out systematic plan to overcome all such challenges. Also the management is of the view that falling commodity and crude oil prices will reduce cost of production, fall in overall prices which in turn will boost the demand for the products of the Company such as to benefit to the Company for delivering better performance. Your Company is working to develop a strong export market and also broaden the customer base.

The completed expansion and up gradation project will benefit the Company by increase in production volume due to debottlenecking its plant together with process improvements which will over a period of time further yield better margins.

The margins has remained under pressure on account of increased cost of production however due to turnover growth the impact has been minimized.

The business operation has earned Profit before tax and extraordinary items of Rs. 3.45 Cr. for the year ended which was Rs. 5.99 Cr for the immediate past year. During the year the Company has incurred expenditure of Rs. 3.45 Cr on account of one time settlement payment of interest on repayment of its old banking debt with The Charotar Nagrik Sahakari Bank Ltd. and the same has been treated as an exceptional item due to one time cost. On account of said exceptional item the Profit after tax for the year amounted to Rs. 0.83 Cr as against Rs. 4.72 Cr for the previous year.

The year was full of challenges, opportunities together with volatility. Despite of various limitations and challenges particularly on account of increased cost of production and raw material cost has impacted pressure on the margins. The management has successfully maintained the business volumes and improved the turnover for protecting profit margin.

The cost of operations has gone up mainly due to inflationary pressure across all expense heads and particularly increased raw material cost; however, the demand driven market conditions together with changed marketing & business strategy of the Company has supported well to imbibe part of the cost increase by way of better remunerative sales prices during the year under review and protected the margins. The systematic and focused approach of the management of the Company since last couple of years has yielded favorable and consistently improved results and thereby almost wiped off all accumulated losses. The performances are expected to improve further in coming years bearing unforeseen circumstances.

FINANCE:

During the year under review, the Company has entirely paid off its past banking debt of The Charotar Nagrik Sahakari Bank Ltd. under the one time settlement scheme as duly approved by the concerned regulatory authorities. The same has resulted into extraordinary item on account of one time interest burden of Rs. 3.45 Cr.

The committed efforts of the management have resulted into zero banking debt with the Company and overall debt and interest burden on the Company.

PROSPECTS:

In a time to come, ecology and allied regulatory compliances, commodity and petro-products price volatility, foreign currency fluctuations, inflationary operation costs, large working capital need, skilled manpower availability etc. are major concern for the industry in general. The global and domestic demand is likely to be increased and major business is expected to flow into India from western countries due to quality and cost competitiveness advantages.
