OPERATIONS AND PROSPECTS:

Current year being one almost free of Dengue & Malaria cases resulted in lower bed utilisation, lower pharmacy as well as investigations compared to previous year when it was of epidemic proportions. This resulted in lack of revenue growth in all the three divisions of the Company namely N G Medicare & Calcutta Hope Infertility Clinic, N G Nursing Home and N G Pharmacy .High Inflation and slower growth of the economy in general, compounded with increased competition in the sector also posed challenges to the Company.

Higher Interest & Depreciation due to investment in new premises leading to higher utilisation of Bank credit as well as introduction of VAT on Pharmacy & other Sales and consequent assessed liability for past period has affected profits for the year. Service Tax on reverse charge basis introduced late last year also increased costs.

Inflationary pressures and economic slowdown raised employee costs for service sector companies like us. Enhanced Food coupons provided to employees as well as significant higher provisions towards Gratuity Fund contributions to LIC have raised employee costs during the year.

The Company relocated its Registered Office to its own newly acquired premises from April onwards. Company continues to meet the challenges and expects to perform well in the coming year.
