TEXTILE INDUSTRY

A textile is the oldest industry in the country and it is the most labor intensive industry. This sector gives direct employment to 35 million people and indirect employment to 45 million people covering mostly women and rural poor. This industry contributes for the growth of the country in terms of job creation in rural areas, export earnings, besides meeting the basic needs of the people.

The capacity of the Industry is much more than the domestic requirements. The fall in exports due to recession in developed countries has resulted in poor price realization from the domestic market. The unprecedented huge price fluctuations of raw materials and demand recession for all Textile products have seriously affected and drove the industry to register huge losses during the year Nearly 75% to 80% of the textile mills across the country have started incurring losses.

In order to bail out the ailing industry the Spinning Mills Associations have approached the Textile Ministry pleading for reliefs. Recently the Government has agreed to provide some relief which includes: Debt Restructuring for Rs.35, 000 Crores. RBI to relax conditions to avoid Textile units being classified as NPAS by opt for debt restructuring. Moratorium on payment of principal and interest on term loans for a period of two years. Sanction of working capital term loan representing the uncovered portion in the cash credit loan account and Interest relief.

With the reliefs that are going to be available from the Banks, now the industry is hoping to turn around.

The fundamental growth drivers of Indian economy remain strong despite the economic turmoil in the world. There would be growing opportunities in the international market as well as domestic market.

REVIEW OF OPERATIONS :

During the year under review, the company has achieved a turnover of Rs. 11873.65 lakhs against Rs.18974.13 in the previous year. Thus registering a negative growth of 37.42%. The company has incurred a loss of Rs. 3873.80 Lakhs against a loss of Rs. 4294.56 Lakhs in the previous year.

The poor operative results are due to down trend in the Textile Industry from the beginning of the operative financial year which is mainly on the account of volatility in the cotton market, severe power cut, low production and un-remunerative sale prices. The operations of the company could not meet the interest cost.

The Management is taking effective steps to cut the cost and improve production. The bankers have also been approached for restructuring the limit coupled with reduction in the rate of interest.

REVIEW OF OPERATIONS:

During the year under review, company has achieved a turnover of Rs. 26109.33 lakhs as against Rs.19263.78 lakhs in the previous year, registering a growth of 35.53%.earned a profit of Rs.83 lakh as against the profit of Rs. 1.00 lakhs in the previous year. Though there was increase in turnover it was not reflected in the profitability on account of the increase in the cost of raw materials Cotton and Polyster from the Second half of the year not compensating increase in sale price has pulled down the margin. But for the external factors the operating results could have been better.

The textile industry entered demand contraction in the Month of April 2011 and normalcy is yet to be restored. The impact of this has affected the cotton yarn division at Ongole more. The Ongole Unit was incurring losses from the second half of the year. The company proposes to sell off the Ongole Unit and pre pay loans thus reducing the interest cost and repayment commitment to improve the cash flows and invest in the working capital to improve the operational efficiency and cost reduction.

The company proposed a Corporate Debt Restructuring to the bankers seeking certain concessions with promoters contribution and sale of the Ongole Unit and Gas Turbine. The same is under discussion stage, all these efforts shall yield to have better performance in the next financial year.

TEXTILE INDUSTRY:

Textiles and clothing constitutes the largest manufacturing industry in the country accounting for 4 per cent of GDP, 14 per cent of industrial production and around 12 per cent of the country's total exports. The industry directly provides employment to 35 million workers and provides indirect employment to another 47 million workers. 2010-11 was a good year for the sector in terms of turnover, sales, profit and growth in investments.

The spinning sector has invested over Rs. 40,000 crore in modernization and capacity expansion and its current installed capacity has risen from 38 million spindles in 2001 to 45 million spindles in 2011,i.e., within a 10 year period. The government has been encouraging yarn exports and the domestic consumers never had short supply of yarn. Almost all the global leading players in textiles and clothing manufacturing in countries like European Union, USA, far-east countries including Japan, Bangladesh, have been depending on Indian cotton yarn over decades.

When the cotton prices became highly volatile and speculative during the last year, the yarn price increased steeply though it never matched the abnormal increase in cotton price.Because of persistent demand of value added segments, the government fixed a cap of 720 million kg for exports during the year 2010-11 as against industry demand for 1100 million kg, brought controls on yarn exports and suspended exports for almost three months (Jan-Mar. 2011). In the process, the Indian spinners lost their credibility in the international market as a reliable supplier and lost very valuable customers with whom they had over two decades of business relationship. In addition, the government also withdrew all export benefits including the DEPB/DBK.

The demand for cotton yarn domestically declined substantially and the closure of nearly 1000 dyeing units in Tamil Nadu due to pollution issue (by the High Court) added fuel to the situation. All this resulted in accumulation of stock with Spinning Mills. As on 31st March 2011, the closing stock exceeded 300 million kgs and by May it exceeded 500 million kgs due to sudden glut in the international and domestic markets.

THE IMPACT OF COTTON POLICY

During the year 2010-11, the world witnessed a global shortage of cotton as it was assessed by International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) that the crop of raw cotton will be lower by 10%. The international prices of cotton increased from US $ 0.84 per pound in October, 2010 to a record level of US $ 2.30 per pound in April, 2011, within a period of 6 months, which was unprecedented and a record price in cotton history. The cotton price in India moved in tandem with the world market and also increased from Rs.35,000/- per candy to Rs. 62,500/- per candy during the same period. The premature announcement of cotton exports and lower stock use ratio made cotton prices highly volatile.

OUTLOOK ON OPPORTUNITIES RISK AND CONCERN

The Fundamental growth drivers of Indian Economy remain strong despite the economic turmoil in the world. There would be growing opportunities in the international market as well as domestic market. The consumption is growing in response to growing per capita income, population and strong retail push. With regards to textile industry, there are significant opportunities in the domestic market as more consumers are buying readymade garments and also consumption of the cloth per capita continues to increase due to growth in the economy which is adding to the purchasing power of the Consumers.

Macro economic factors including rupee appreciation increase in interest rates are the major risk factors presently for the textile industry. If there is an appreciation of rupee, then the competitiveness of industry vs. other countries will decrease. Since the products would be diverted to the domestic market, the price realization will decrease even though there is growth in the domestic consumption. Increase in interest rates will affect the profitability. Since the industry is capital intensive.

ADEQUACY OF INTERNAL CONTROLS:

The Company has a proper and adequate system of internal controls to ensure that all assets are safeguarded, and protected against loss from unauthorized use of disposition, and that transactions are authorized, recorded, and reported correctly. The internal control system is supplemented by an extensive programme of internal audits, review by management and documented policies, guidelines and procedures.

REVIEW OF OPERATIONS:

During the year under review, company has achieved a turnover of Rs. 19264 lakhs as against Rs.18343 lakhs in the previous year, registering a growth of 5%. With the increased turnover, the company has reached to break even level and earned a marginal profit of Rs.1 lakh as against the loss of Rs.298 lakhs in the previous year. This is after considering the deferred tax asset. Significant increase in sales performance during the second half of the year by Rs.2604 lakhs compared to previous year has facilitated the company to earn a profit against the loss during the previous year. This is due to the various steps taken at the plant level to improve the operating efficiencies by minimizing the absenteeism in work force after conclusion of wage agreement and ensuring availability of adequate inputs for uninterrupted production. But for the imposition of power cut and un-scheduled interruption in power supply, the operations would have been improved further.

However, the performance of the company is expected to increase substantially during the next financial year due to improved operations as well as increase in realization in sale price. In addition, company has taken steps to dispose off loss making unit, Garment Division and bring the Gas Based Power unit into operation which will generate

additional income. Combination of all these efforts shall yield to have better performance in the next financial year.

TEXTILE INDUSTRY:

Overall performance of the industry during the year under review was still suffering from the economic impact of the financial collapse of the world markets in 2008. Sales realisation began to improve during the last quarter of the financial year due to rebound in the world economy. In addition with the improvement in the USA economy, dollar began to appreciate against other currencies in the world including the rupee. This has improved exports which in turn improved realisations in the domestic market. In addition domestic market also started recovering from the recession resulting in Improvement in the market. This is expected to continue in the next financial year as economies throughout the world are recovering from the recession.

Infrastructure bottlenecks are affecting the competitiveness of the industry vs. the competitors. Industry has been affected by the substantial power cuts imposed during the summer months every year and increases in power costs throughout the country due to inefficiencies in the grid system. In addition labour costs continue to increase due to

shortage of skilled manpower and increases in the DA by the government due to inflation. Interest rates have also begun to increase during the last financial year due to tightening of monetary policy by the RBI to contain the inflation. Even though sales realization have began to improve the increase in operating costs and infrastructure problems is affecting the profitability of the industry.

OUTLOOKONOPPORTUNTTIES, RISK AND CONCERN:

The fundamental growth drivers of Indian economy remain strong despite the economic turmoil in the world. There would be growing opportunities in the international market as well as domestic market.

With regards to textile industry, there are significant opportunities in the domestic market as more consumers are buying readymade garments and also consumption of the cloth per capita continues to increase due to growth in the economy which is adding to the purchasing power of the Consumers.

Macro economic factors including rupee appreciation increase in interest rates, in usages, increase in power tariff and powercuts are the major risk factors presently for the textile industry. If there is an appreciation of rupee, then the competitiveness of industry vs.other countries will decrease. Since the products would be diverted to the domestic market, the price realization will decrease even though there is growth in the domestic consumption. Increase in interest rates will affect the profitability. Since the industry is capital intensive.
