6. ANALYSIS AND REVIEW Textile Industry Conditions

The Textile Industry contributes around 6% to India's GDP. 11% to export earnings and is the second largest employer (-whopping 55 million people) after agriculture. The Industry has shown continued growth with a potential to increase its global trade share from the current 4.5% to 8% (USD 80 Billion) in the next 5 years supported by a rich abundance of raw material, skilled labour and talent.

In FY 2014-15, the textile industry is estimated to have contributed USD 42 Billion (4%) to India's GDP, and 27% to the country's foreign exchange inflows.

Opportunities and Challenges

Being the second largest employer in India coupled with strong Industry linkages with the rural economy augurs well for the Indian textile industry as one of the most significant sectors with an incremental growth potential. Rural economy has seen a spurt in income levels the last few years and this is the right time to juxtapose their synergies to promote the industry's growth. Being one of the key focus sectors under the Government's "Make in India" campaign is a testimony to the huge growth potential the industry holds, both in terms of infrastructure development and skill improvement. Globally, favourable trade policy reforms would also allow the industry to expand its trade partners, improve its export competitiveness and contribute substantially to the nation's income.

However, the growth prospects are constrained by many challenges including rising input costs (wages, power and interest costs), restrictive labour laws and intensified competition from other low cost countries like Bangladesh. Such issues need to be addressed to result in unlocking maximum industry growth potential.

STRENGTHS OF THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY

The following are a few strengths of the Indian Textile Industry:

- An Independent and self-reliant industry;

- Tremendous potential of growth in the domestic and international markets;

- Abundant Raw Material availability that helps industry to control costs and reduces the lead-time across operations;

- Availability of low cost and skilled manpower provides competitive advantage to industry;

- Availability of large varieties of cotton fiber and has a fast growing synthetic fiber industry;

- Promising export potential;

WEAKNESSES OF THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY

The following are a few weaknesses of the textile industry, which it has to overcome.

- The Industry is a highly fragmented Industry.

- It is highly dependent on Cotton.

- There is lower productivity in various segments.

- There is a tremendous growth in the unorganized sector.

- Lack of technological developments that affect the productivity and other activities in whole value chain.

- Infrastructural Bottlenecks and Efficiency such as transaction time at ports and transportation time.

- Unfavorable labour Laws.

- Lack of Trade Membership, which is a hindrance to tap other potential markets.

CURRENT AND FUTURE OUTLOOK

The textile industry is one of the largest and most important sectors in the Indian economy in terms of output, foreign exchange earnings and employment. India's Textile Industry is one of the leading textile industries in the world. It contributes approximately 14% India's industrial production 4% to the GDP and 17% to the country's export earnings. It provides direct employment to over 35 million people and is the second largest provider of employment after the agricultural sector. The Industry is expected to grow steadily from its present US$ 70 billion to US$ 110 billion by 2015. Textile products including wearing apparel have registered a growth of 4.3% during April-January 2010-11 as per the Index of Industrial Production (MP)data release by the Central Statistical Organisation.

Not with standing signs of recovery from the previous financial crisis, the textile and apparel industry went through a tough year struggling with the surging and fluctuating prices of raw materials. However, the Government is making efforts in boosting the textile industry through various initiatives and investments are increasing steadily. The Ministry of Textiles has sanctioned a total of US$ 133 million under Technology Upgradation Fund Schemes (TUFS) during September 2010. The industry is expected to continue to grow at a significant rate in the future, as it is fuelled by a strong domestic consumption.

Despite new risks, the global economic recovery is gaining strength and the IMF has projected a 4.5% world growth in 2011 and 2012. While growth in emerging economies remain strong, that in the US and Europeon region is slowly gaining momentum some of economies of the developed nations are still a concern with the Euro zone being the most vulnerable as rating agencies continue to downgrade the sovereign rating of many of economies in this region the natural disaster in large sharp increase in oil prices consequent to the turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa is fuelling uncertainty to the pace of global recovery. Globally, elevated food and commodity prices accompanied by the spike in oil prices have engendered inflation concerns.

The Indian Economy registered improved growth and was amongst the better performers amid emerging market economies. Central Statistical Organization's recent estimated Indian GDPgrowth rate of 8.6% for 2010-11 is consistent with the RBI's projections for the same period. While the area sown under the Rabi crop is higher than last year which augurs well for agricultural production, the index of industrial production continues to be volatile. The other indicators such as latest Purchasing Manager's Index, direct and indirect tax collections, merchandise export and bank credit, suggest that the growth momentum persists. However continuing uncertainty about energy and commodity prices may vitiate the investment climate, posing a threat to current growth trajectory, inflation remains a challenge for the Indian Economy and the key risks are tighter monetary conditions and rising prices eating into the consumer's disposable income.

DIVIDEND

In view of the loss during the year, the Board of Directors have not recommended any Dividend on the paid up Equity share Capital of the company for the year.

OPERATIONS

During the financial year under review, your Companys turnover has increased to Rs. 18691.16 lacs from Rs. 15328.34 lacs in the corresponding previous year mainly on account of increase in export of yarn as Merchant Exporter. However, company has incurred Net loss of Rs.222.60 lacs due to substantial increase in raw material price mainly VSF, Cotton, Stores spares cost and interest on Working capital and Term loan and higher labour cost due to hike in VDA because of high inflation rate and also power cost increased by MSEDCL.

EXPORTS

The Companys export during the year calculated on FOB basis amounted to Rs.72.93 crore as against Rs.48.39 crore in the immediate preceding year, registering increase in turn over by 34% due to high demand of Cotton yarn & PV yarn in Export Market.

CURRENT AND FUTURE OUTLOOK

The global economy is showing signs of a turnaround with Asian Economies experiencing a relatively stronger rebound. The global economic performance improved during the latter half of the calendar year 2009, prompting the IMF to reduce the projected rate of economic contraction in 2009 from 1.1 per cent to 0.8 per cent in January 2010. Consequently, the IMF also revised the projection of global growth for 2010 from 3.1 per cent to 3.9 percent. However, significant risks remain: (1) in many Economies, the recovery is largely driven by government spending whilst consumer sentiments remain fragile: (2) high levels of global liquidity have led to steep increases in commodity prices; (3) emerging markets are likely to face increased inflationary pressures and (4) developed economies are facing large budget deficits.

There are concerns that the global recovery phase may be fragile, as economies of developed countries, particularly USA and Europe, continue to be set with the problems of high unemployment, low consumer spending and depressed housing markets. Besides, the recent crisis in Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Greece indicate that there would be many pitfalls along the road to recovery and that normalcy is still some time away.

Indias growth-inflation dynamics are in contrast to the overall global scenario. The Indian Economy is recovering steadily from the growth slowdown, but inflationary pressures, triggered by the supply side factors, have developed into a wider inflationary cycle.

Although the growth momentum of the Indian economy was substantially impacted with the onset of the global economic slowdown, the severity of the impact was considerably less when compared to most developed economies. The fiscal and monetary policies implemented by the Government of India helped the economy to weather the downturn phase. The outlook of the Indian economy turned positive towards the end of 2009, driven by the uptrend in industrial production and re-cuperating consumption and investment demand. The Reserve Bank of India has projected the final real GDP growth for 2009-10 in the range of 7.2 per cent to 7.5 per cent with aforecast of 8.0 per cent for 2010-11.

MODERNISATION / EXPANSION UNDER TUFS

DIVIDEND

To be globally competitive, it is imperative that we should conserve our resources for future modernisation and expansion of our production facilities to have economies of scale. Considering the long term interest of the shareholders, the Directors therefore, do not recommend payment of dividend for the period under review and decided to plough back profits to build up resources which will help in increasing the wealth of shareholders.

OPERATIONS

The year under review concluded with your company registering sales of Rs. 12884.76 lacs. The profit before interest, depreciation and tax was Rs. 837.84 lacs. The Profit after tax stood at Rs. 268.38 lacs as compared to Rs. 64.68 lacs in the previous year registering a significant growth of over 300%. The main reason for increase in profitability of the company can be attributed to reduction in the interest cost.

EXPORTS

The company has made direct export to the tune of Rs. 721.80 lacs during the financial year 2003-04. In the first quarter of current financial year 2004-05, your company has achieved export turnover of Rs. 1000.04 lacs and looking to the constant flow of export orders and barring any unforeseen cirumstances, it is expected that total export turnover in the current fiscal should be around 35-40 Crores atleast. In ensuing post quota regime, your Company is expecting to register robust growth in export sales.

CURRENT & FUTURE OUTLOOK

Inspite of volume growth, your company do not foresee any improvement in its bottomline in the current year because increased realisation is more or less nullified by corresponding stiff increase in price of basic raw matetials i.e. Cotton and Polyster and it seems that this trend will continue for some more time in the near future.

Further, news of scanty rainfall due to erratic monsoon, possible drought in many parts of the country, high inflation due to spiralling oil prices and anticipation of hike in interest rates have shaken the business confidence and dampened the market sentiment and perceptions overnight. In this uncertain scenario, with no effective control over market behaviour and function, your company is taking all possible steps for internal cost control by way of financial restructuring and other administrative cost reduction measures.

As far as future outlook is concerned, the disbanding of Multi-Fibre Agreement (MFA) in January, 2005, in line with WTO commitments will open up huge opportunities for the Indian Textile Sector and with the removal of all quantitative restrictions, it is expected that Indias Share in World Trade in Textile and Clothing will rise leap-frog.

DIVIDEND

To be globally competitive, it is imperative that we should conserve our resources for future modernisation and expansion of our production facilities to have ecomonies of scale. Considering the long term interest of the shareholders, the Directors therefore, do not recommend payment of dividend for the period under review and decided to plough back profits to build up resources which will help in increasing the wealth of shareholders.

OPERATIONS

During the year under review, your company has registered significant increase in its sales. The sales has risen by over 60% from Rs. 6993.95 lacs in the year 2001 -02 to Rs. 11173.68 lacs in current year. The profit before interest, depreciation and tax has gone up by 24% from Rs. 659.60 lacs (2001-02) to Rs. 819.79 lacs. Profit after tax has also risen by 97% from Rs. 32.80 lacs (P. Y.) to Rs. 64.68 lacs in current year. The improvement in performance can be attributed to substantial saving in interest cost and marginal improvement in sales realisation.

CURRENT & FUTURE OUTLOOK

The bold initiatives taken by Govt. of India in budget 2003-04 in completing the cenvat chain, withdrawal of unproductive exemption, rationalization of excise duty structure and creation of textile specific infrastructure will go a long way in improving the investment environment of the industry and its overall performance. With these initiatives, the industry is likely to improve its global competitiveness in the new environment.

Again the disbanding of Multi-fibre Agreement (MFA) in January 2005, in line with WTO commitments, will open up huge opportunities for the Indian Textile sector and India will be the biggest gainer. For the first time in 40 years, India will get the opportunity to become a world leader in textiles.

DIVIDEND

In view of inadequacy of Profit, your directors do not recommend any Dividend for the year.

OPERATIONS

The year 2001-02 was yet another challenging year for your company. A host of external and internal factors deeply impaired the operations of your company. In the external factors, attack on World Trade Centre in September followed by attack on our parliament in December trembled the global economy. The consumer confidence was at all time low resulting in heavy demand recession. Over and above, riots in Gujarat (a major textile market) played havoc with already suffering economy. Consequently, demand crippled and volume nose-dived leading to heavy stock pile-up. The internal factor that haunted us was the labour strike initiated during the year 2000-2001 and further continued in the current year and finally called off by labour themselves in the month of August, 2001 on conciliation of their aberration. Thereafter, your company began its normal operation and is now working smoothly and is further enjoying excellent relationship with the workers. However, by the time strike ended peacefully, company had to suffer huge production loss leading to dip in volumes, revenue and profitability. Despite all these adverse external and internal factors, your company bounced back and posted an operating profit of Rs. 659.60 lacs (P.Y. Rs.277.77 lacs). After providing for interest, depreciation and tax, net profit and cash profit stood at Rs. 32.80 lacs and Rs. 428.42 lacs respectively.

CURRENT OUTLOOK

Your company do not see any significant improvement in the market condition in the current year too. Although, when market just begin to show the sign of revival reflected by demand improvement and higher realisation in 1st quarter of the current year, corresponding stiff increase in the price of basic raw material like polyster twice in the month of April & May, 2002 almost nullified the gain.

Further, news of scanty rainfall due to erratic monsoon and possible drought in many parts of the country has shaken the business confidence and dampened the market sentiment and perception overnight. Thus, demand started dwindling once again. In this uncertain scenerio, with no effective control over market

behaviour and function, your company is taking all possible strategic steps for internal cost control by way of financial restructuring and other administrative cost reduction measures. It is your management perception that cost control measures initiated would yield enduring results in times to come.

MODERNISATION

The company is continuing to modernise its manufacturing process. During the year, it further added 2 Nos. Autoconers to produce & meet the demand for export quality yarn.

FINANCE

Your company has incurred capital expenditure of Rs. 267.30 lacs during the year under review. The capital expenditure has been mainly incurred towards modernisation and is being financed through internal resources.

Although, your company has to incur substantial interest charge on account of huge stock build-up caused due to severe demand recession but following efforts helped in reducing the borrowing cost -

1. Swaping a substantial part of working capital limit with FCNR (B) demand loan,

2. Speedy realisation of payments through efficient use of SCMS (Star Cash Management System) facility of Bank of India.

3. Improvement in Credit Ratings of the company through better financials as well as healthy banking operations.

MARKETING

Your company having analysed the emerging business scenerio and the opportunities, considers that the imperative is to strengthen its marketing strategies and has taken following pro-active steps in this direction -

1. Installation of more and more number of sophisticated machines to produce high quality yarn and fabrics.

2. Introduction of new value added fabrics to cater to demand of large, medium or semi premium segment.

3. Establishment of additional marketing set-up to exclusively promote/establish the market for premium segment fabrics and to create awareness among the customers.

INSURANCE

All the properties of the company including building, machinery and plant and stocks are adequately insured.

DIVIDEND

The Directors have declared an interim dividend of Re. 1 per equity shares on 41,68,430 equity shares of Rs. 10 each for the financial year ended 31st March, 2000. The interim dividend has been paid to all those equity share holders whose names appear in the Register of Member as on 16th May, 2000. As no final dividend has been recommended on the equity shares, the interim dividend, shall be fully adjusted as final dividend for the financial year ended 31st March, 2000.

OPERATIONS

The working of company was adversely affected due to a combination of several factors, viz.

1. Loss of production caused by a 94 days illegal strike at composite textile plant at Hinganghat. Accordingly company could acheive a turnover of Rs. 7597.45 lacs only during the year under review compared to Rs. 8985.50 lacs in the preceding year.

2. Increase in the prices of manmade fibre, power tariff, fuel cost and wage index. All these increases in the cost of various inputs could not be passed on to the customers due to market resistance.

3. Fall in the earnings from proccessing job owing to severe competition.

Although all these factors have contributed negatively on the turnover and profitability of your company, but through efficient deployment of working capital and better debtors management, interest cost was brought down significantly to Rs. 147 lacs as against Rs. 314.89 lacs incurred in preceding year. Consequently, your companys profit excluding other income was lower to the extent of Rs. 30.07 lacs only.

Your Directors firmly believe that the lower profitability is only symptomatic of the illegal strike and recession through which the whole textile industry is passing and does not in any way reflect the true potential of your company. The various cost control measures being undertaken by the management and quantum jump in export of yam to U.K., Italy, Middle-East in the current year are likely to yield better results and the Directors hope that, barring unforseen circumstances, the result of the current year ought to be encouraging.

MODERNISATION AND EXPANSION

The company is continuing to modernise its manufacturing process. During the year, it undertook the installation of latest yarn preparatory machines (LC300 cards, LF 1400A LMW Speedframe) along with Schlafhorst Autoconer. Apart from it new padding mangle, fully automatic dyeing jiggers and coal fired multipack boiler were also installed. These have helped the company in quality improvement, greater productivity and keeping it updated with latest modern technology in textile industry.

Moreover, production capacity of Wani Unit had been further expanded by installation of 5040 ring spindles along with latest yarn preparatory machines. Thus with these installations your companys turnover would increase substantially in ensuing years resulting in improved profitability.

FINANCE

Your company has incurred capital expenditure of Rs. 883.41 Lacs during the year under review. The capital expenditure has been mainly incurred towards expansion of Wani Unit and modernisation of Hinganghat plant and is being financed through internal resources and term loan from Banks.

INSURANCE

All the properties of the company including building, machinery and plant and stocks are adequately insured.
