The Indian economy, Asia''s third largest has displayed declining growth rate over the last couple of years. During the year ended March 31, 2014 GDP growth remained muted at sub 5% levels. The year also saw sharp currency depreciaton while industrial actvity remained in contracton mode, consumpton demand contnued to weaken and declining Capital Goods producton was indicatve of stalled investment demand.

With sluggish growth across all sectors in the economy, the demand for the Fine Dining Industry too remained moderated throughout the year, primarily due to high Consumer Price Infaton (CPI) and weak sentment. This problem was further compounded by lower discretonary spends.

The operatng context for the year was challenging, given the backdrop of a market slowdown, a volatle input cost environment and heightened compettve intensity. Moreover, as the discretonary spends remained lower, the break-even period for your Company''s restaurants too was impacted.

Your Company''s performance for the year 2013-14 has to be viewed in the context of abovementoned economic and market environment.

The total Income of your Company increased to Rs. 2,736.9 million from Rs.2,360.4 million in the previous year recording a growth of 15.9%.

The profit before Depreciaton, Interest and Tax (PBDIT) amounted to Rs. 438.0 million (16.0% of the revenue) as against Rs. 459.1 million (19.5% of revenue) in the previous year.

The Net profit afer Tax was Rs.188.9 million as against Rs. 234.1 million in the previous year.

Despite, the challenging economic conditons, your Company proceeded with its expansion plan charted out for the year. Your Company has initated measures to efciently utlize its physical and human assets by sweatng them, to ratonalize and re-engineer costs and to tactcally hike prices while retaining the footalls through reversal innovatve measures.
