2. OPERATIONS OF THE COMPANY :
Review of Operations:
The markets in Europe for high quality socks have severely contracted. There is widespread acceptance for poor and medium quality products that are available at very low prices from China.
The directors of your company made strong efforts to introduce the company''s high quality products in the Indian markets but with no results.
In view of the aforesaid there was no production during the year under review also.
The secured loans have been repaid by the Company, by availing loan from the Promoter Director of the Company.
Since the Company has ceased production, the old stock of raw-material and packing mate- rial which do not have any use and also have no realizable value in the current market have been written off.
Inspite of stoppage of production, the company has kept all its resources in very good order and condition and can resume producing its high quality products at short notice.
However, it is imperative for the company to explore other business avenues considering its strengths and assets and also taking into consideration the boost in the business sentiment caused due to changes in government both in the state and in the country.
3. SHARE CAPITAL
During the year under review the Authorised Share Capital of the Company is Rs. 11,00,00,000/ - The Issued, Subscribed and Paid up Share Capital of the Company as on March 31, 2014 is Rs.8,23,50,000/- divided into 82,35,000 equity shares of Rs.10/- (Rupees Ten) each.
