PERFORMANCE REVIEW:

The turnover increased by 6%, and the Profit before Interest and Taxes increased by 1% compared to the previous year. The Earnings per Share increased from Rs. 0.39 in the previous year to Rs 0.63 in the year under report.

The offtakes in the component division had come down due to a severe fall in the Commercial Vehicles and Tractors last year. There has been a fall in the Job Work Charges, the General Purpose machinery division could hold on to a respectable sale although it was Higher than the previous year. The SPM division performed much better than the previous years due to some major projects being undertaken by the OEMs. Though the market conditions were not significantly great, the OEMs still went ahead and completed their projects thereby ensuring that the machines on order with us were lifted.

FUTURE OUTLOOK

The current market conditions are slow at the moment and there has been a sizeable shrinkage in the general business. However, your directors we are pleased to inform you that we will be able to sail through this year

1) We are comfortable on our Special Purpose Machinery Order book and we are more or less booked for the entire year. These are project orders from the OEs which could be for their Greenfield or expansion projects and they will go ahead and execute these projects regardless of the temporary market conditions.

2) The CNC machines division is also expected to maintain the performance as we have had a breakthrough in the Russian market and have already successfully delivered a few machines. There are repeat orders from Russia which should help offset reduction in regular order flows. The company is exploring other new overseas markets to shore up export revenues.

3) On the component division front, we have already made a significant investment in new machining lines in the Pune plant. These lines are expected to commence production in the last quarter of this year and thereby add to our revenues.

With slowdown reaching unprecedented levels, there is a turnaround due now and the government is expected to announce some measures to provide the momentum to the overall growth in the general economic activity which the Directors are hopeful would help further in the current year.
