The operating expenses decreased by 5% to Rs.8,598.26 lacs as compared to Rs.9,077.66 lacs in last year.

FUTURE OUTLOOK :

In 2015-16, the Indian economy grew at 7.3 per cent and is projected to continue to grow at a robust pace, in spite of strong headwinds from other Asian''s countries rebalancing and global manufacturing weakness. According to United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), India''s economy is expected to grow by 7.6 per cent in 2016-17, largely on the back of urban household spending, amid steady employment growth, low inflation and also will be supported by continuous progress on infrastructure improvements and government drives on implementing ''Make in India'', ''Invest India'' and other incentive schemes to boost exports and encourage foreign investments in India. However, the industrial and manufacturing sector appears to be growing at about half the rate of the overall Indian GDP i.e. (3-4%).

On the global side, US economy growth braked sharply to its slowest pace in two years as consumer spending softened and a strong dollar continued to undercut exports, but a pick-up in activity (2-3% GDP growth) is anticipated given a buoyant labour market. The GDP growth in South-Asia remains constant between 6 to 7 per cent boosted by low commodity prices, moderate inflation and a slight uptick in exports.

However, the major drag on the global economy continues to come from China, where a decelerated GDP growth rate of 4-5% is resulting in significant over-capacity and therefore causing ripples through global commodity, steel, cement and other markets. Chinese manufacturers are aggressively looking to address markets overseas, resulting in increased competition in our target markets.

As a result, your company will continue to see trading headwinds in most of the global markets with the exception of India, the USA and some of the South East Asian countries in the coming year.

The Non-ferrous metal melting of aluminum, copper alloy & zinc oxide remained leading customers of your Company''s products & services. The following drivers for years 2016-20, indicate double digit market growth in the segments and hence good growth prospects for our products, although the competitive nature of the markets will continue to exert significant pricing pressure in the coming year.

- Many private equity fund investing in commercial properties

- Smart city project for 100 cities across India

- Government scheme of Housing for All scheme by 2022

- Individual state initiatives for boosting housing & commercial city projects

Your Company has started focusing on the ferrous industry in 2012 and have seen attributive growth in four years, at good profitability. The following growth drivers signal larger opportunities in the ferrous segment.
