The year 2011 was another year of rapid growth for the Company. Your Company showed a significant improvement in business as compared to the previous year despite high raw material and fuel prices. Your Company recorded 59.73% growth in net revenue at Rs. 2145.70 Cr from Rs. 1343.31 Cr in the year-ago period, which enabled the Company to maintain its track record of sustained year- on-year growth. The growth in revenue was largely driven by higher sales volumes, aided by new capacities of Polyester Chips of about 50149.77 MTP a which commenced commercial production during the year, and increase in product prices.

The volatility in raw material prices continued throughout the year. Effectively the average international price increase resulting in higher raw material costs for MEG and PTA was about 25% and 22% respectively. In rupee terms, the average price of raw materials during the year increased by 17% compared with the previous year. Notably, in the second half of the year, the Company's raw material prices increased by an unprecedented 61%. The speed and magnitude of the rise results in slowdown in demand but your Company was able to pass on the price increases to a large extent. Tightness in supply due to planned and unplanned plant maintenance shut downs of major raw material suppliers resulted in shortage of PTA and MEG as well as increase in prices. This affected Company's operations for a part of the year.

EXPANSION PROGRAMME

The on-going spinning expansion plan at an estimated cost of Rs.234 Cr. is in the advance stage of implementation and is expected to be completed during the last quarter of the current financial year.

Your Company has decided to venture in to further capacity expansion at a new location by setting up a 2,80,000 MTPA plant comprising of Continuous Polymerisation, Direct Melt Spinning for the manufacture of POY and FdY in the denier range of 30 to 500 having 12 to 578 filaments in Bright, Semi-dull, Full-dull, Cationic and Dope-dyed yarns. After the completion of the Expansion Project, Nakoda will be in a position to cater to the entire range of Polyester yarns in the domestic as well as international market. The project is estimated to cost Rs. 1935 Cr. and is proposed to be financed by a mix of equity and internal resources and also the long terms debts. The required equity for the same is already raised partly through GDRs and partly through preferential allotments to the promoters and strategic investors.

Highlights:

- State of the art R&D facilities to develop specialty yarns which cannot be afforded by small and medium units.

- About 50% of the production to be captively utilized at Surat Super Yarn Park Ltd. (SSYPL) located in vicinity of the project.

- To be the only fully integrated Polyester Filament Yarn plant in the country.

- To be the first fully automatic plant in India.

- 100% coal based captive power generation assuring uninterrupted quality power supply at much cheaper rates.
