2. HIGHLIGHTS OF PERFORMANCE

Financial Year 2014-15 has been the worst year in the history of the Company when it recorded a net loss of Rs. 48.99 lacs on a turnover of Rs. 1163.49 lacs. The operations were badly affected due to poor off take of end products especially the deoiled meals. Global conditions affected the demand and industry has been hard hit and was forced to carry huge inventory of deoiled meals to new season and sell at unremunerated prices. The company though a small Company but being a listed one , is also burdened with steep increase in expenditure on compliances of various laws and listing fee as demanded by BSE. It is a matter of satisfaction that the margins during season time remain stable and your Company could recover part of losses in the last quarter.

However, this trend started to decline in new fiscal. Further, prediction of weak monsoon especially in Northern India has added to the woe of the company for of supply of rice bran, its main raw material, dependent on reasonable produce of paddy requiring good rains. The management therefore keeps its fingers crossed and pray for good monsoon.

3. DIVIDEND

Due to losses during the year, dividend on Equity Shares is not recommended. As per advice of experts and also considering liquidity constraints, the Directors have decided not to recommend the dividend on Cumulative Redeemable Preference Shares for financial year 2014-15 out of past accumulated profits. The dividend on Cumulative Preference Shares is a fixed liability hence is kept in arrear. However the dividend amounting to Rs. 32380/- (including Dividend Distribution Tax) was paid on redemption of 10%, 5000 Cumulative Redeemable preference Shares of Rs. 100/- each for the period 01.04.2014 to 14.10.2014 out of past accumulated profits in accordance with section 124 read with prescribed rules thereon and is to be approved by the shareholders at the ensuing Annual General Meeting.

4. SHARE CAPITAL

As per resolution passed in last Annual General Meeting, the Company's Authorized Capital was increased from Rs. 150 lacs to Rs.200 lacs by adding Rs. 5 lacs comprising of 50,000 10.5% Cumulative Redeemable Preference Shares of Rs 100 each. Further during FY 2014-15 the Company has redeemed 5000, 10% Cumulative Preference Shares of Rs 100 each on the maturity date ie 15-10-2014 out of proceeds of fresh issue of 12% 5000 Cumulative Redeemable Preference Shares of Rs 100 each allotted on 10.10 2014. Thus paid up Preference Share Capital as on the date of the Balance sheet stands unchanged at Rs. 40 lacs.
