PERFORMANCE REVIEW

During the year under report Cotton Spinning Unit of the Company produced 54.58 lacs kgs of Cotton Yarn at an Avg. count of Ne 22.32 as compared to previous year production of 66.59 lacs kgs. at an Avg. count of Ne 23.44. The previous year was of 15 months and year under report is of 12 months. So the production level has slightly improved as compared to previous year. The Company achieved total income of Rs. 14593.77 lacs as compared to 15544.43 lacs during the previous year. Gross profit was Rs. 963.54 lacs against gross profit of Rs. 1948.45 lacs during the previous year. Company''s profit before exceptional items is Rs. 353.03 lacs and net profit after exceptional item is Rs. 37.22 lacs against net profit of Rs. 699.72 lacs during the previous year. The year under report was an adverse year for Cotton Spinning Industry. The main reason was the steep hike in cotton prices during the year under report as compared to previous year. The main cause of high prices of raw cotton was the export of substantial quantities of cotton under OGL. Speculators also played their part in keeping the cotton prices high. There was much volatility in cotton prices. This had serious adverse effect on Cotton Spinning Industry.

On the other hand, yarn prices remained subdued due to sluggish demand in the International market. During the year when China who is a major yarn importer stopped import of Cotton Yarn, the yarn prices further fell. So there was quite mis-match between raw material cost and price realisation of finished goods. All this resulted in adverse financial performance by the company. During the year under report prices of power and fuel and personnel expenses also increased. All these factors resulted in higher cost of production and these led to adverse financial performance by the Company.

EXPORTS

Your Company is producing high quality products conforming to international standards and the Cotton Spinning Unit has been awarded ISO 9001-2008 certification. The Company is supplying yarns in various countries and to some of the most reputed global yarn importers. Because of its exports performance, your Company has been awarded the status of a Star Export House by Government of India.

During the year under report, the Company made an export turnover of Rs.7672.86 lacs as compared to previous year''s export turnover of Rs. 9499.61 lacs. Export Turnover was slightly better as compared to previous year of 15 months.

CURRENT YEAR''S OUTLOOK

Your Company is manufacturing 100% grey cotton yarns for which the raw material is Cotton. Due to introduction of high yielding BT Cotton, raw cotton of different varieties is abundantly available in the country.

Though there was delay in onset of monsoon in the country but subsequently monsoon has been quite active in the cotton crop growing regions in the country. Areas under crop cultivation have increased as compared to previous season. The country is expecting bumper cotton crop during the ensuing season starting from September, 2014.

Due to expectation of bumper cotton crop not only in India but also major cotton growing countries like USA, Pakistan, China etc. the cotton prices have started declining. The Company expects to buy cotton at reasonable cost during the coming season. Demand of cotton yarn is also picking up in the International market. Demand for cotton yarn is also picking up in the the International market. China is also expected to restart import of cotton yarn. All these factors will help in increase in the price of yarn in the International market. Rupee-Dollar exchange rate is stable which is to the advantage of the Company.

Due to these factors the Company expects to show better financial performance during the current year as compared to that of the year under report

PERFORMANCE REVIEW

During the year under report, Cotton Spinning Unit of the Company produced 66.59 lac kgs. of cotton yarn as compared, to previous year''s production of 60.55 lac kgs. of cotton yarn, thereby showing an increase of 6.04 lac''kgs. The Company''s operating income was Rs. 15344.08 lacs as against previous year''s income of Rs. 14764.53. which shows an increase of Rs. 579.55 lacs (3.92%). Gross profit of the Company is Rs. 1748.10 lacs as against gross profit/(loss) of Rs. (636.54 lacs) during the previous year. Company''s net profit is Rs. 699.72 lacs as against previous year''s net profit of Rs. 116.54 lacs.

During the year under report the cotton spinning industry performed better than the previous year. During the previous year there was much volatility both in cotton prices as well as yarn prices. Due to this, the industry had suffered losses. But during the year under report, both the prices of cotton and yarn were stable. In fact demand for cotton yarn in global markets remained high and accordingly, the cotton yarn prices also showed some upward trend.

Further, as the rupee remained in depreciating mode against USD during the year under report there was better price realisation.

However power & fuel and personnel expenses increased to some extent. In spite of the increase in these expenses the Company showed better performance during the year under report as compared to the previous year.

EXPORTS

Your Company is producing high quality products conforming to international standards and the Cotton Spinning Unit has been awarded ISO 9001-2008 certification. The Company is supplying yarns in various countries and to some of the most reputed global yarn importers. Because of its exports performance, your Company has been awarded the status of a Star Export House by Government of India.

During the year under report, the Company made an export turnover of Rs.9499.61 lacs as compared to previous year''s export turnover of Rs. 9399.90 lacs. So, there was a slight improvement in Company''s export turnover.

CURRENT YEAR''S OUTLOOK

Your Company is manufacturing 100% grey cotton yarns for which the raw material is Cotton. Due to introduction of high yielding BT Cotton, raw cotton of different varieties is abundantly available in the country.

So far the monsoon has been very good in the cotton growing regions in the country and areas under cotton cultivation have increased as compared to the previous season. The country is expecting bumper cotton crop during the coming season starting from September, 2013.

Therefore, the Company will be able to buy cotton at reasonable cost. Further, there is ample demand for cotton yarn in global markets and the prices are also good. As the rupee is depreciating against USD in the last six months, the Company will be able to achieve better sale realisation during the coming months.

Due to these factors the Company expects to show better financial performance during the current year as compared to that of the year under report.

DIVIDEND

Your Directors regret their inability to recommend any dividend for the year under report with a view to conserve its resources.

PERFORMANCE REVIEW

During the year under report, Cotton Spinning Unit of the company produced 60.55 lac kgs. of cotton yarn as compared to previous year's production of 69 66 lac kgs. of cotton yarn. The decline in production is mainly on account of the fact that the company had to slow down its production for 2-3 months due to accumulation of stock consequent to Govt 's restrictions on export of cotton yarn The Company achieved net income of Rs.17095.01 lacs as compared to Rs. 11850.64 lacs in the previous year. Gross profit was Rs. 1693.96 lacs as compared to Rs. 1569.15 lacs during the previous year. The Company earned net profit of Rs.116.54 lacs as compared to net profit of Rs. 98.64 lacs during the previous year.

The year under report was very challenging for the cotton spinning industry. The Central Govt, put a cap on export of cotton yarn and also imposed restrictions on the same. Consequent to this there was almost no export of cotton yarn for 2-3 months. This resulted in piling up of inventory both of cotton yarn and raw cotton. The overseas buyers had no choice but to shift to other countries to source their requirement of cotton yarn Ultimately when the export restriction was lifted the prices of both cotton yarn and raw cotton dropped drastically in the overseas market which resulted in diminishing of value of raw cotton and yarn. This resulted in losses to the cotton spinning industry. Further various exports incentives like duty drawback DEPB Scheme, Interest Subvention etc. were withdrawn. Later on Duty Drawback was restarted but its rate was reduced from 4% to 2.9%. Your company being export oriented was hit by the withdrawal of these incentives. Increase in interest rates also affected the profits of the Company. However, the adverse effect of all these factors was, to some extent, offset by decrease in prices of cotton and depreciation of Rupee against USD.

EXPORTS

Your company is producing high quality products conforming to international standards and the Cotton Spinning Unit has been awarded ISO 9001-2000 certification. The Company is supplying yarns in various countries and to some of the most reputed global yarn importers. Because of its exports performance, your company has been awarded the status of a Star Export House by Government of India.

During the year under report, the Company made an export turnover of Rs.9500.11 lacs as compared to previous year's export turnover of Rs 8653 08 lacs. So, there was a significant improvement in company's export turnover as compared to that of the previous year

CURRENT YEAR'S OUTLOOK

Your company is manufacturing 100% grey cotton yarns for which raw material is cotton. Due to introduction of high yielding BT Cotton, raw cotton of different varieties is abundantly available in the country During the current cotton season, there is abundant supply of cotton and prices are lower as compared to previous year But due to slowdown in Eurozone, demand for cotton yarn is sluggish and prices are also declining But due to the depreciation of Rupee against USD, the Company is able to achieve better sales realisation in rupees terms in spite of declining yarn prices. The Company expects this situation to continue in the near future also.

There is expectation of good cotton crop world wide during the next cotton season, so the prices of cotton are also expected to remain stable at the present level If this trend continues, the Company expects to show better financial performance during the current year as compared to the year under Report.

PROPOSED EXPANSION PROJECT

At present the Cotton Spinning Unit of the Company has 26208 spindles The Company proposes to expand Capacity of the Unit by adding another 12960 spindles Your Board of Directors is working out the details of the project We shall keep the Shareholders informed of further developments in this regard
