3. Company''s Performance & Future Outlook

The Indian automobiles industry witnessed a moderation in demand in 2012-13, after the double-digit growth in sales recorded in the preceding three years. Weak macroeconomic sentiment coupled with subdued consumer confidence pulled down sales, particularly in the latter half of the year. Domestic automobile sales declined by 6.6% in 2012 (Jan-Nov), as compared to growth of 14-31% during 2010-2012. In view of the current macro environment, both domestically and globally, we are cautiously optimistic about the Indian automobile industry''s prospects in the near term. As a result, achieving high growth rates is likely to be a major concern for the industry in 2013.

The financial year 2012-13 was a tough year, besides slowing down of economy, factors such as tight liquidity and generally weak sentiments led to reduce consumption. Demand in your Company''s product also slowed down in 2012-13 thus limiting top line development. In this challenging environment, the company kept its focus on improving operational efficiencies to remain competitive and also facing the tough competition. Despite the all above facts, the company continued its strong growth across major markets, as the Automotive sector''s revenue is generated primarily by sales of vehicles, parts and accessories. The turnover in the current year is Rs.7693 lacs as against the previous year turnover of Rs. 8712 lacs, which is much lower but the Profit after Tax of the Company for the year increased to Rs.76.51 lacs as against the previous year profit of Rs.69.27 lacs showing a growth of 10.45%.

The uncertainty witnessed in 2012-13 is likely to continue during 2013-14. Global economy showed no signs of recovery during 2012-13 and is expected to be more uncertain. This may result in volatile crude and commodity prices and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. In domestic economy, continued inflationary pressures, lower private consumption and high interest rates are likely to affect sentiments.

Your Company has undertaken plans to further upgrade & enhance its existing production facilities in order to diversify its product range in line with the changing customer requirements by addition of manufacture of steel and steel alloy Casting Conveyorised paint shop, Cold box machine for core making, on line core backing process. Looking to bright prospects in the Solor industries and high consumption of power. The Director of the Company has decided to setup a Solar power generation unit at village Kadodiya, Tarana Dist. Ujjain M.P. of 1.50 MW. The generation of power will be utilized for Captive Use.

Your directors are pleased to inform that the economic condition of your Company is improving and we are able to create value with continuous increase in profitability and operating margins year after year. Ambitious expansion plans are under way which will enable your company to continue its journey on the growth path.
