OPERATING PERFORMANCE

During the financial year under review, balancing adjustments concerning automated production were made and production on Trial Run basis was started. Out of 1,57,634 Product Materials, only 24,244 materials could be sold in the market at much below the production cost. This demonstrated that manufacturing of IV Fluids on commercial basis was no longer viable and was leading to increase in losses.

RENOVATION OF MACHINES

The only producing machine -Bottel Pack 360, imported from Rommelag Ag., Germany in 1996 has been "Metal Fatigued" and stops frequently warranting heavy maintenance. Spares are not readily available and it takes 45 to 60 days time to get delivered from their country of origin.

PRODUCTION PLAN

After renovation of the machine, the Management took steps of either own manufacturing on commercial basis or contract manufacturing. Since own manufacturing and selling was not found viable, attempts were taken to establish relationship with some interested parties like, Fresenius, Baxter, B Brawn and others on contract Manufacturing. All negotiations failed because of non-matching of price together with firm commitments required for minimum quantity of production. Hence, there was no other alternative but to take a decision to sell the Intra-venous Fluid manufacturing machines.

SALE OF ASSETS

The Company being a loss making unit needs restructuring of its business. The Company has also huge amount of unsecured loan in its books.

Since the Board is contemplating new lines of business, it at its meeting held on 15th January, 2010, decided, subject to your approval, to sell, lease, transfer or otherwise dispose of the IV Fluid manufacturing machineries and other assets of the Company either in whole or in part. In the said meeting, the Board also decided to obtain your consent / approval under Section 293(1 )(a) of the Companies Act, 1956 by way of Special resolution, empowering the Board of Directors of the Company for sale, lease, transfer or otherwise dispose of the whole or substantially the whole or part of the Companys assets more specifically situated at the Companys factory at Karbala, Sonarpur Station Road, Kolkata- 700 103. Accordingly, consent / approval of the shareholders has been taken through postal ballot under Section 293(1 )(a) read with Section 192A of the Companies Act, 1956 and the Companies (Passing of the Resolutions by Postal Ballot) Rules, 2001. Consequent to the consent / approval received from the shareholders on 17th March, 2010, the Board initiated sale of IV Fluid manufacturing machineries. The fund thus received have, amongst others, been used to pay off part of its unsecured loan.

FUTURE PLANS

In view of decision of bringing new lines of business, a number of alternatives are under consideration. It includes setting up hospitals, Medical Care Unit, health projects, Eye Care Unit, Cancer Research Unit & Hospital, etc. In addition, the Board was also interested to apply for suitable change in the Object Clause of the Memorandum of Association for any other profitable venture and if necessary any other decision to relieve the Company from its huge liabilities.
