Dear Members,

2. DIVIDEND

In view of decreasing of trend in turnover and liquidity in the F.Y. 2013-14, the Board of the Directors of the Company do not recommended any dividend on its Equity shares for the year ended 2013-14.

3. TEXTILE INDUSTRIES OUTLOOK:

For the cotton year (October - September) 2013 - 2014, cotton production was 37.5 million bales. This may largely be attributed to favorable monsoons and higher acreage of high yielding Bt (Bacillus Thuringiensis) cotton (around 90% of total cultivated area).

However, the company believes that the adverse weather developments in January 2014 has lead to lower than expected actual production for cotton year 13-14, Cotton demand remained sluggish for 2013 due to weak textile and apparel consumption worldwide; however, the Chinese reserve policy supported domestic cotton prices. Most of the seasonal yield went to state reserve stock, and the release of reserve cotton together with cotton import were the major purchase channels for mills,

4. FUTURE OUTLOOK

We expect India''s cotton consumption to increase 10% yoy to 29.7 million bales in FY15, driven by strong mill consumption. This is in response to the increase in demand by China for quality Indian cotton yarn, which is more economical both in terms of production and raw materials. Chinese millers have to pay 40% duty on importing cotton from India while none for cotton yarn. Indian raw cotton prices (ginned) are likely to remain attractive in FY15. The prices are currently 8.0%-10.0% lower than global prices as measured by Cotlook A index.

A revival in consumer demand in the US and Europe may increase cotton demand from the countries namely Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey, Vietnam and Thailand.

This revival may also help Indian cotton exporters to offset the lower demand from China in cotton year 13-14 Furthermore, the Indian Finance Ministry in September 2013 withdrew export promotion incentives on cotton and cotton yarn under the focus market scheme and incremental export incentivisation scheme, given the surge in export value of these products. These incentives were targeted at enhancing India''s export competitiveness by offsetting high freight cost and other externalities to select international markets (excluding China and Bangladesh) The Chinese government has planned to discontinue'' the current reserve policy and make trials for a target price subsidy scheme on cotton.

Onwards aiming at decoupling cotton prices with government subsidy and returning the price generating power to market. Nonetheless, lower Chinese demand, coupled with increases in stocks outside of China, could lead to lower prices in 14-15 and beyond.

2. DIVIDEND

In view of plough back of profit for the expansion of business of the Company, the Board of the Directors of the Company do not recommended any dividend on its Equity shares for the yearended2012-13.

3. TEXTILE INDUSTRY OUT LOOK

An India cotton textile remains negative to stable for 2013 on account of subdued demand, although margins are expected to benefit from softening raw material prices. The outlook for synthetic textiles remains negative for 2012 due to reversal of substitution demand and oversupply in domestic partially oriented yarn, pressurizing selling prices and margins of synthetic textile companies.

2012 was marked by stability and restoration of operating margins for textile players across the value chain led by steady cotton prices, and the consequent positive impact on liquidity. Margins have been stable-to-improving, led by a better product mix, commanding higher margins.

4. FUTURE OUTLOOK

The future of the textiles industry seems to be bright in all aspects. As such Government places all its trust and relies sector for its strong ''employment creation'' capability, more precisely in the garments manufacturing side. Lowering tax burdens on companies will play an important part in cutting down production costs and boosting competitiveness, increasing ability to tap high-volume orders from the global market. Modernization would enable companies provide quality and volume solutions which is in constant demand by international buyers.

In that view, many manufacturing companies in India are rushing towards expansion and modernization options. Manufacturers are having recourse to fund raising programme pushing EPS to higher growth, dissolving equity on its way. Business collaborations with foreign players, creation of buying offices and Government''s effort to enhance quality production and export are many visible signs of Indians coming into force on the global market.
