CORPORATE REVIEW

Paper prices continued an uptrend during the year under review, effect of which was partly offset by substantial increase in the prices of fibrous raw materials in the later part of the financial year and also significant increase in the minimum wages as applicable to workers announced by the State Government. However, the total revenues of the Company increased by more than 16% over the last year and stood at 1403.17 crores which was due to both increase in prices of paper and also marginal increase in production of paper in quantitative terms. PBIDT of the Company stood at t 37.56 crores against 128.50 crores of last year, showing a healthy increase of almost 32%. Net profit after tax at 112.64 crores was almost 62% higher as compared to *7.79 crores of last year. Higher prices of fibrous raw materials, which continue in the current year also remain a cause of concern. However, your Directors do hope that due to better operations and expected buoyancy in the paper market, performance in the current year should also be quite satisfactory

During the year under review your Company was able to earn higher PBIDT of Rs.1902.19 lacs, against Rs.1778.97 lacs of last year, however because of higher incidence of financial charges, depreciation and incidence of income tax, the net profit was lower at Rs.227.92 lacs as compared to Rs.472.05 lacs.

CORPORATE REVIEW

During the year under review, as indicated in last years report, prices of paper remained under pressure, which resulted in almost 9% fall in the gross turnover of the Company. Simultaneously, prices of wheat straw, which is major raw material, used for manufacture of paper by your Company went up by more than 85% during the year. Both the above factors resulted in fall in EBIDTA of the Company from Rs.3930.51 lacs to Rs.2269.26 lacs. Correspondingly, net profits after provision of taxation was at Rs.541.51 lacs as compared to Rs.1811.93 lacs of last year. Prices of writing and printing paper did show some recovery in last quarter of the year under review and your Directors expect that prices during the current year will rule firmer as compared to last year.

PERFORMANCE REVIEW

SHREYANS PAPERS

Production of Shreyans Papers at 34729 MTs was marginally higher as compared to 34011 MTs of last year. However, gross turnover was lower at Rs. 13712.86 lacs as compared to Rs.14513.52 lacs of last year due to lower sales realization. Operations of this unit remained satisfactory on operational front, though lower prices of finished goods and higher prices of fiber did impact the profitability margins.

SHREE RiSHABH PAPERS

Production of Shree Rishabh Papers at 27460 MTs was margifially lower as compared to 28743 MTs of last year due to change in product-mix. Gross sales at Rs.10791.60 lacs were lower by almost 14% as compared to Rs.12435.55 lacs of last year due to market conditions. Overall profitability margins in this unit were also impacted due to reasons mentioned above.
