Results of Operations and the State of Company's Affairs

The economic scenario in the country stayed upbeat with the new government formation, however, the grass root percolation of the various initiatives intended to be implemented by the government is yet to take effect. This has dampened the optimism for the near future. While there was a pressure on several sectors such as auto, infrastructure, real estate etc. seeing subdued demand growth, the consumer-driven sectors continued to stay buoyant. The falling prices of crude oil came as a major relief, helping curtail inflation and the oil import bills.

Even in the midst of such a scenario, your Company continued to do well, consolidating its operations and embarking on new expansions. As we speak, the Company's operations span across 28 cities and 9 states, with overseas operations in the US and UAE as well. Importantly, while the year has been promising, the Company also invested for future growth and profitability.

In terms of operations, the Company reported revenue of Rs.3830.69 Crores in FY 2014-15, representing a jump of 11.33% over the figure of Rs.3440.87 crores reported in FY2013-14. The PBT and PAT for FY 15 stood at Rs.49 Crores and Rs.38.81 Crores respectively.

The Company stays in a dynamic operational and expansion mode, and as a result, its count of outlets and stores continually keeps on rising. In light of this, it is important to point out that of the various stores and cinemas mentioned by it, the three cinemas at Hajipur, Saharanpur and Muktsar were opened under franchise model. The two retail stores in AarDee City, Gurgaon and Chhatarpur, New Delhi have been commissioned in FY 16 i.e. 1st April 2015 onwards.

Apart from that, there are no material changes and commitments affecting the financial position of the company which have occurred between the end of Financial Year 2014-15 and the date of this report.

Dividend

Your Company continues to expand its operations steadily across its business verticals. In view of this your Directors consider it prudent and rational to conserve resources for being appropriately re-invested into the Company's future operations and therefore, do not recommend any dividend on equity shares for the financial year under review.

The details of amount lying as unclaimed in the Unpaid Dividend Account of the Company for the Dividend declared for the financial year 2011-12 & 2012-13 are given in the Corporate Governance Report.

Issue of Bonus Shares

The Board of Directors of the Company in its meeting held on 11th May, 2015 has declared the Bonus Issue of Equity Shares to the existing shareholders in the ratio of 1:1, subject to the requisite approval of the shareholders and other competent authorities and to absorb the bonus issue, the Company has also decided to increase the Authorized Share Capital of the Company from Rs.150 Crores to Rs.280 Crores by way of Postal Ballot in terms of Section 110 of the Companies Act, 2013 read with the Companies (Management and Administration) Rules, 2014.

The issue of Equity shares by way of Bonus and increase in Authorized Share Capital has been approved by the Shareholders by way of Postal Ballot on 13th June, 2015 and the Allotment of Bonus Shares was made on 29th June, 2015 after getting In- Principle Approval from BSE & NSE on 15th June, 2015.

The Company has got the Listing & Trading Approvals from BSE & NSE on 1st July, 2015 and 3rd July, 2015, respectively and the trading of Shares commenced on 6th July, 2015 at both the exchanges.

Acknowledgement

As a company grows in terms of geographical presence and scale, the real drivers of success become the people who work to execute the vision of the board and senior management, with the later taking a strategic rather than an executive role. Success comes when an organization starts living the principle of 'Many in body, One in spirit'.

Such is the case with SRS Limited, which has grown substantially over the years with operations spanning multiple cities and myriad verticals. The Board believes that the force behind the company's progress is the various stakeholders who put their belief in the Company's vision, and work to make it a reality.

This said, the Board warmly places on record its deep appreciation to all who contributed to the Company's success directly or indirectly, from within or outside the Company.

The Board extends its very warm appreciation to the shareowners of the Company who stood by the Company, and enabled it to work professionally to achieve its objectives. Their faith and belief in it is a key reason behind the Company's success all these years. The best-laid plans can work wonders only if they are allowed for implementation - in this regard, the Board wishes to praise and thank the regulatory & administrative bodies that supported and guided the Company, and extended the due permissions and approvals to conduct business.

Special vote of thanks goes out to the bankers of the Company who gave wings to its plans - along with the support they extended; the Board deeply appreciates their strong belief in the Company, its processes and its future. Thanks also to the auditors of the Company who helped the Company adhere to its high levels of propriety, transparency, disclosures and controls. The Board places its appreciation to all its business associates and vendors who worked as the de facto team members of the Company.

Thanks in extremely warm and rich measures to the customers of the Company, who chose the SRS brand with full faith and enjoyed the Company's products and services time after time; as well as to the local communities and overall society for all their support. Lastly but not the least, warm tributes to the management and team of SRS, who are the real architects of the Company's success.

It is the Company's good fortune to have the support of all the above stakeholders, and the Board resolves to carry forward diligently the inclusive progress and growth of the Company.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Your Company believes that a Company grows by making use of the resources provided by the community and the environment by way of raw material, workforce, markets place for consumption of its goods and services and much more. Hence, as a successful enterprise, your Company considers it a moral duty to richly give back to the society and play a small, humble role in the upliftment of the less privileged sections.

Your Company attempted to do this by several initiatives in the year gone by, and it is worth noticing that many of these efforts have been in existence over the last several years. The key sectors where the Company focuses include education, healthcare and social welfare. In education, it sponsored the books and school fees of several children coming from economically weaker sections. Community marriage was another area wherein the Company helped in conducting the marriages of girls from weaker families without them having to undertake major expenses. These ''Parichey Sammelans'' have helped numerous couples settle down and start a new phase in life.

Healthcare is an area whose care is needed by almost everyone, and at the same time, many people may find quality healthcare difficult to afford. With this understanding, the Company worked with various hospitals to sponsor or subsidise the medical treatment of needy patients. What is remarkable to note here is the fact that many a times, this was done in a confidential manner between the Company and the concerned hospital, and the patients didn''t even get to know the identity of the benefactor. Apart from all this, the Company willingly came forward with sponsorships for events conducted by social organisations so that it could also help strengthen the hands of other entities who are engaged in social good.

In the middle of all this, the Company didn''t forget its mission of creating more jobs for the youth - it feels that real and sustained social good comes by empowering people economically. Hence it has remained as one of the Company''s top priorities and will continue to remain so. In keeping with this, the Company made efforts to create direct and indirect employment for several people.

The Company realizes that these are small steps that will contribute to bringing empowerment and happiness to people, and hence remains committed to increase its focus on CSR activities in coming times as well.

CONSERVATION OF ENERGY, TECHNOLOGY ABSORPTION, FOREIGN EXCHANGE EARNINGS ANDOUTGO

Energy conservation is given utmost attention by the Company as it not only has a direct bearing on the operational effectiveness but also echoes how conscientious as a corporate citizen the

Company is.

Over the years, the Company has steadily made investments across myriad fronts to ensure optimal energy usage and minimize wastage. In the year gone by also, it took a series of measures that collectively have made a significant impact in this area. This includes the following:

1. Three way value installed in all AHUs of SRS Mall which reduces the heat effect & maintains the temperature. It also results in increasing the efficiency and maximizing energy saving.

2. After installation of AHU in Audi 1, cooling-related issues have been resolved, leading to most optimal energy consumption. .

3. 2 Old AHU have been replaced with new one to conserve the electricity.

4. Installed coil cooler to prevent DG (1010 KVA) from excess heat. It increases our DG efficiency by reducing the fuel consumption and maintenance costs, while increasing the DG life.

5. Installed capacitor bank in select retail and jewellery stores to maintain the power factor & reduce energy losses.

The Company is acutely sensitive on the matter of energy and resource conservation, and will make continuous improvements and investments in systems and processes to ensure that it stays highly environmental friendly.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

Your Company realizes that while business excellence, maximizing profitability and enhancing shareowners' wealth are key operational objectives, it has a still larger role to play as a responsible and conscientious corporate citizen. As we continue to grow larger and profitable, we have a desire to invest more in community building initiatives and bring in happiness and goodness to our entire society as a whole and add to the safety and preservation of our environment.

In the year gone by, your Company joined hands with NGOs, charitable organizations and hospitals to leverage opportunities that directly and immediately impacted the lives of the people and changed it for the better.

One such activity was our association with Red Cross Society, Faridabad wherein an event called 'Ability Unlimited' was organized. It was an inspiring show wherein physically challenged people displayed their amazing talent through various activities and performances. It left the audience glowing with wondrous appreciation, and drove home the point that if the participants can overcome their challenges, we too can leap across our limitations and mental barriers to shine brightly.

The Company also contributed its bit in helping a section of youth settle down by organizing 'Parichay Sammelan' or group marriages in other words. It helped the youth find life-partners and marry without incurring huge personal expenses. The younger generation too got the gift of education, with your Company sponsoring free education to worthy children, enabling them to get on the path of knowledge and success. Apart from this, the Company joined hands with B.K. Hospital in Faridabad to procure and set-up the eye care equipment.

With these small steps, we feel happy that the Company is doing its bit for the betterment of society, without any self-purpose. As we become stronger and prosperous as a corporate, we shall continue to multiply our efforts in this area to spread smiles everywhere.

CONSERVATION OF ENERGY,TECHNOLOGY ABSORPTION, FOREIGNEXCHANGEEARNINGSANDOUTGO

Energy conservation is of prime importance for your Company as it has a direct bearing on using up of precious energy resources that entail high cost on one hand while pollute our environment on the other. Hence, the motive of your Company is to responsibly plan its operations in a manner that uses energy efficiently, reducing the pressure on our environment in the process. It is the belief of the Company that every step, no matter how small, contributes richly to energy conservation, and the impact of seemingly small steps is gigantic when considered over a period of few years. The steps taken by your Company in this direction are outlined in the following points:

Particulars required under Section 217(1)(e) of the Companies Act, 1956 read with Companies (Disclosure of Particulars in the Report of Board of Directors) Rules, 1988 are as follows:-

I) Conservation of energy

- Installed capacitor as required to maintain a power factor above 0.9. The Company betters this mark by having in place an average PFof0.98.

- Line circuits in sunlight-rich areas have a separate line circuit so that they are switched off during mornings and evenings, and used only during low light day parts. This has reduced the overall daily load.

- Replaced the high power consumption light fitments like GLS, CDMTs, and Halogens etc. with low power consuming CFL&LEDs at the retail and jewellery stores, where they are used in high concentration.

- Fuel consumption has been minimized by adopting energy efficient methods like running HVAC plant on maximum load in case of direct supply and minimum load while the system an non D.G.

- Dump & used/waste material is regularly recycled

- Timely switching off/on of lights procedure is being followed to ensure proper utilization of electricity.

- Interlocking system in DG sets has been pre poned to optimize the use of DG sets.

- Carried out the retro commissioning of electrical power distribution system and replaced underrated cables, lugs, thimbles etc. to increase the distribution efficiency and to minimize the line loss.

- Frequently carried out energy awareness program as education for facility staff on conservation opportunities to increase the energy as well as demand savings.

- Prepared & implemented a daily/weekly/monthly & yearly maintenance plan for all verticals so as to reduce the break downs and increase efficiency of appliances.

- Increased reliance on the inverter and UPS to its optimum level, reducing DG usage time and load in the process.

- By implementing semi auto start stop system in DG sets unnecessary usage of DG sets has been minimized. Here, if the electricity supply is on, the DG set will stop automatically, but in case of an interrupted power supply the DG can be started manually. This has brought the night misuse to a complete halt, and what's more, inverter power is being used at its optimum level during the day time.

- New fitments also include auto pressure pump and overflow signal system on entire plumbing system.

- Replaced an old DG set (1010 KVA) with a technically advanced version that consumes 25% less fuel in comparison to old one.

- Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) plant has been upgraded to recycle The waste water for gardening etc.

- By using RO waste water, lowered the consumption of water and also saved the electricity which was used to pump the raw water.
