During the year under review, the general market conditions continued to be difficult owing to postponement of investment in infrastructure projects on account of slowdown in economy. Your company too did not remain unaffected by this and suffered losses and required infusion of capital. At this stage on the initiation of the Directors, Texmaco Rail & Engineering Limited, Kolkata of Adventz group, a leading rail engineering and manufacturing company came forward to support, and subscribed to the capital of the Company resulting in a big relief in the operations. Subsequently, post an open offer process, Texmaco acquired 49.07% stake in the company (including shares acquired from the promoters).

Texmaco is now extending active support in the operations of the company w.e.f. 27th December 2013, and the company has since been able to achieve substantial improvements as reflected in the working of the Q4 of the year 2013-14. In spite of a downturn in the overall economy and lower infrastructure spending in Rail Sector, your company made a steady advance in Railway Construction Industry and bagged orders worth Rs. 378 Crores during the year.

Two prestigious projects were awarded to the Company by Delhi Metro on successful timely execution of their earlier packages. These were for the ballastless track work of Janpath - Mandi House section & Mandi House - ITO section, all high profile jobs. The two were completed timely and received appreciation of DMRC.

The Company attained a turnover of INR 101 Cr and net profit s of INR 12.64 Cr in Q4, against turnover of INR 154 Cr and net loss of INR 19.75 Cr reported in first 3 quarters, QI - Q3, of the year under review. The total turnover for the year thus stood at INR 254 Cr. as compared to INR 257 crores during the previous year.

The Railway market for EPC in India is maturing. The recent announcement of the opening of FDI in the Rail sector is attracting leading multinationals. With projects like Dedicated Freight Corridor under construction, the EPC market will grow in a big way. Your company with an established track record of timely project delivery has to move fast to position itself to avail of the huge opportunities. Your Company would, of course, need to reinforce its resources in terms of highly professional management, skilled manpower and strong finances to de-risk the successful handling of large value and complex projects.

The merger proposal with the Promoter Company, Texmaco Rail & Engineering Limited, is a right step in this direction. With the backup and support of the Promoters, the company expects to foray into the Global EPC market for Railways.

It would be a consistent effort of the Management to earn recognition as the most admired company in the field of Railway Infrastructure and thereby enhancing stakeholders'' value through innovation, operational excellence and sustainability.

DIVIDEND

In view of the loss suffered during the year, your Directors do not propose to declare any dividend for the year.

Conservation of Energy, Technology Absorption and Foreign Exchange Earnings and Outgo

( a ) Energy conservation measures taken :

Major energy conservation measures have been carried out via usage of more sophisticated machinery which can do higher value of work in lesser time and thereby reducing the requirement of equipment and also maximize savings in two specific areas:

* Electric Energy

* Fuel oil consumption

In our industry 99% equipment are powered by either electrical motor or by fuel oil powered engines. Since most of our work is carried out in remote locations and is subject to harsh environmental conditions, the rate of depreciation is very high. Energy efficiency is ensured thorough well planned actions such as good quality preventive maintenance, machinery up gradation, modernization and introduction of sophisticated and better control system. Fuel oil consumption has been reduced by implementing various preventive maintenance measures and introducing new efficient engines coupled with newer machines and reducing idle running of equipment.

( b ) Additional investment and proposals , if any , being implemented for reduction of consumption of energy:

Continuous additional investments are made in phases to replace older machinery with more sophisticated and more fuel efficient ones. The replacement theory is applied in repairs and renewals where good quality genuine spares are used to provide best service performance with least wastage of resources like oil and energy.

( c ) Impact of the measures ( a ) and ( b ) for reduction of energy consumption and consequent impact on the cost of production :

The company has been able to reduce electrical energy and fuel oil consumption. Though it is not possible to quantify the impact, the measures are expected to result in considerable savings.

Foreign Exchange Earnings and Outgo

a) Activities relating to exports, initiatives taken to increase exports, development of new export markets for products and services:

The delivery of quality service for which your Company is renowned in the domestic and overseas market has been maintained through implementation of optimum practice and this continues to be the focus of the Management.

The Companys Sales have recorded a negative growth over previous year which doesnt although go well in line with the industry segment where your Company operates but has mainly been due to certain projects getting excessively delayed due to reasons not within the control of your Company. Your Company has consciously been following a policy of steady improvement for last couple of years the result of which would be evident in years to come. Your Company continued its on-going effort to increase all-round efficiency and reduce cost.

Furthermore your Board has to say that during the year, worldwide recession along with recessionary trend in the country during major part of the year also badly affected steady growth of your Company. Possibility of foraying into other areas is also being looked into for the sake of diversification so as to enable your Company to make stronger footprint in other areas as well.

Future Prospects and Management Outlook

The sluggishness in the construction sector during FY 2009-10 and the recent revival of same is an ample testimony to revival of the Indian economy irrespective of global economic slow down. The portends for continuous growth in demand are good as not only the Central Government but different State Governments are laying greater thrust on infrastructure projects, road networking etc.

The medium to long term outlook of construction industry is promising as it is bound to grow with a healthy correlation to the economic growth of the Country. With Indian economy poised to grow at 8.5-9.00% or above, the construction is likely to remain on a double digit track growth for a couple of ensuing years from now. The

industry additionally will have to grapple with the issue arising out of increase in the cost of various inputs, raw materials which have been showing rising trend. The other major challenges which the industry would face relate to the logistics for movement of these increasing quantities, especially by rail which has unfortunately not kept pace with the growing industrial requirements.
