Management Discussion and Analysis Report

Industry Trend and Development

The Company is engaged in manufacturing of transformers in the capacity range of 100MVA 132KV class. The demand for the Company's product in coming years will increase significantly. The expansion of infrastructure industry and real estate business, extensive rural electrification programme of the Government, development of shopping malls, complexes, etc. demands various type of transformers and the Company in this industry with flexibility will survive and have a bright future.

Opportunities and Threats

The company has taken steps to upgrade its facility for manufacturing of transformers up to 100 MVA 220 KV Class from the present capacity of 100 MVA 132 KV Class. With this the Board has also decided to diversify into the field of EPC Contracts in Power Sector and the negotiations with major players in this field are at concrete stage. The Company's nature of business is capital intensive and hence any delay in cycle causes huge interest loss and marks the bottom line of the Company.

Risk and Concern

The threat is also from unorganized small scale entrepreneurs who sometimes run away with big orders due to their small set up cost. The nature of industry demands blocking of capital for a long period and hence more credit support from the banks are required.

Outlook

The current scenario is very encouraging because the major thrust of our Government is on Power and Infrastructure sector. Meanwhile Eastern and North Eastern region is witnessing the maximum development in the power sector. We are in a commanding position for all North Eastern demand of these Large Transformers as we are at the gateway to the entire region. NTPC and NHPC are setting up power project of 25000 MW and 20000 MW at an estimated cost of approximately Rs, 20 Billion in the North East, which will give us a tremendous opportunity.
