4. MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS REPORT

Management Discussion and Analysis Report as required under Listing agreement with Stock Exchange:-

A. Industry Structure & Developments:-

B. Outlook and opportunities

Your Company has identified the following opportunities and future building business areas:

The company is mainly focused on its tire and rehab care business which also derives better profitability compare to previous year regardless marginal growth of sales. Primarily, the PU tire for Bicycle, rehab care products and industrial application tire business will be our main focus this year and years to come for the domestic as well as international market.

With hospital / disabled support equipment business, the company is now recognized as a serious good quality supplier, the future looks very promising. With some new quality certification of the products as required for government orders, this product line will be better positioned to do business with government tenders, defense, NGO's & hospitals. With new government in place, Medical support to every person seems a focus area for the new government, there will be more opportunities for this business and the company is also in process to come with more new advanced higher quality products for disabled persons.

With new structuring of the footwear division, the cost control and redefining on the business process will give incremental benefit in future. Safety shoes business has huge potential in coming future and we are working on it to give quality product to Indian markets.

C. Outlook on threats, risk and concern

1. Business Risks:

Company is more focused in its tires and wheel business, where the PU Bicycle tires, is comparatively a new product in this line and is also in its growing stage of market establishment and business stability. Our tires are completely new to the market and we have a tough competition with rubber tires and wheels which were easily available in the market and globally prices of rubber has decreased substantially which can impact our sales.

The company also had a tougher competition, in relation to its Hospital / disable support equipments business with that of Chinese products in India as well as across the world. Also foreign currency fluctuation can have adverse as well as positive impact our business.

Company is normally engaged in import of Raw Materials and export sales during its course of business which exposes it to exchange fluctuation and crude & petrochemicals prices, cost of manufacturing are also the areas of concern which we are mitigating it by cost reduction in each area possible.

Company also needed to improve its overall performance in both monetary as well as non monetary terms by emphasizing its product quality & market capture and increasing its sales and reducing its overall cost of sales including reduction of Cost of raw materials and other fixed and variable overheads.

2. Financial Risks:

Majority of raw material are imported, so any major fluctuation in US$ can affect the performance of the company. Although foreign exchange risks somewhat balanced by exports and company is regularly covering such risk.

The interest cost is still on the higher side although RBI started reducing interest rates and banks will take some time to pass on the benefit to borrowers. Company is exploring the other means to reduce interest cost.

3. Legal & Statutory Risks

Company is complying regularly with all the regulatory requirements with respect to manufacturing, taxations, statutory requirements, company law, SEBI etc, with new laws coming in, this exercise will need more inputs which company is working towards.

4. Political Risks

Any major change in local, national or international can effect the business but as, at the moment, company does not have any business with government entities, the risk is minimal. Although company is trying to secure government business at the moment, this can impact positively as well as negatively in a small percentage of growth of the company.
