PERFORMANCE REVIEW AND OPERATIONS

During the year under review, there has been a marginal increase in the Income from Operations, mainly due to the divestment of the Company's Shareholding in Aurangabad Jalna Toll Way Limited. However there has been a drop in contract Receipts to Rs.27118.25 Lacs in the current year from Rs.27687.97 Lacs in the previous year. Profit after Tax stood at Rs.1031.56 Lacs compared to previous year Rs.953.97 Lacs.

Your Company's performance and financial position was adversely affected due to slow down in infrastructure, high level of working capital requirement, huge investment in equipments, high interest cost and blockage of receivables at Government level and arbitration. The company has availed short term loans/equipment finance. The shorter repayment period of these loans has resulted stress on the cash flows of the company. The company's operations were just adequate to service its interest obligations.

In view of the above it was necessary to restructure debts of the company to ensure that debt servicing can be sustained out of operational cash flows of the company. To overcome these difficulties the company embarked on debt restructuring under CDR mechanism. Your Board of Directors at their Board Meeting held on 10th December, 2011, therefore took steps to initiate process for availing relief in terms of Restructuring of Advances by Banks / Corporate Debt Restructuring (CDR) Mechanism by making representation to the Lead Bank i.e. Canara Bank and got the approval of CDR on 31st March, 2012. Under the CDR certain term loans have been restructured with moratorium in repayment of installments and certain relief has been provided in the interest.

This year has been very tough for our Company with the overall pressure on the Infrastructure Industry. Your Company explored avenues by quoting for new work by tying with Joint Ventures. The Company has a Order Book position of around Rs.900 crores and is also in the process of bidding for new contracts in JV.

DIVIDEND

As per the conditions mentioned in the Master Restructuring Agreement of CDR Package as well as constraints by the Consortium Bankers of the Company, your Directors regret their inability to propose any dividend for the year 2011-12.
