JK Cement Ltd. Company History and Annual Growth Details

The Company is promoted by Dr. Gaur Hari Singhania, Mr. Yadupati
Singhania, Yadu International Limited and Juggilal Kamlapat Holding
Limited. The Company was incorporated under the Companies Act as
J.K. Cement Limited on November 24, 1994 and obtained its certificate
of commencement of business on the same date. One of the main
objects of the Company, as contained in our Memorandum of Association,
is the acquisition of the whole or substantially the whole of the
undertakings and properties comprising the JKSL Cement Division.

Due to continuous losses, the net worth of JKSL became negative and
consequently, JKSL applied to the BIFR which registered JKSL as a
sick company on April 2, 1998. Subsequently, the matter was referred
to the AAIFR, which formulated a Scheme of Rehabilitation for JKSL.
Pursuant to the Scheme of Rehabilitation, the JKSL Cement Division
was acquired by the Company as a going concern on as-is-where-is basis
through a slump sale, with effect from November 4, 2004. Prior to the
acquisition, the Company did not have any substantial business activity.
