1.2 DIVIDEND:

In view of the accumulated losses, your Directors do not recommend payment of any dividend for the year.

2. OPERATIONS :

Your directors are pleased to announce an annual 21% increase in the turnover of the Company. In terms of volumes, the Company has sold 608 machines to achieve a turnover of Rs. 250.57 crores as compared to 520 machines in the previous year with a turnover of Rs.206.57 crores . The raw material costs have gone down as a percentage of sales by almost 500 basis points reflecting economies of scale in purchases and better terms of purchase. The employee costs as a percentage of sales have gone up by 38 basis points reflecting impact of increase in salaries, wages and incentives in line with inflationary trends. The profit before interest and depreciation has improved to Rs. 4634.83 lacs in the current year as against Rs. 2319.85 lacs in the previous year. The interest and finance charges have shown remarkable reduction in view of repayment of most of the loans and better cash flow management. Depreciation has more or less remained constant.

The extraordinary items consist of Rs. 81.35 crores in the aggregate of which about 55% is on account of sacrifices of secured lenders, 35% is from capital and reserves write back and the balance is from others.

The Company has created a deferred tax asset of Rs. 18.15 crores to reflect the virtual certainty for tax set off available against future profits. In view of Sanctioned Scheme reliefs and the cash profits made by the Company in last few quarters, the accumulated debit balance in the profit and loss account has been reduced to only Rs. 2.39 crores.

Your Directors are confident of continuing the profitable working in the current year also although there seems to be challenges for the industry in view of its cyclical nature. The operations of the Thane unit of the Company continue to remain closed.

Detailed analysis of the operations of the Company are available in the Management Discussion and Analysis forming part of the Annual Report.

The domestic business has shown a stellar 27% increase in turnover over last years level at Rs. 202.59 crores (previous year Rs. 159.81 crores). The increase in the turnover in the current year has been supported by the focused vendor management programme, which has helped in slightly easing the pressure on the tight working capital, and also through enhanced customer satisfaction. The market has well accepted the new range of machines from the extrusion and injection moulding machinery business of your Company on account of its efficiency and product quality.

Whereas the exports growth has been sluggish at 3% at Rs. 47.97 crores (previous year Rs. 46.76 crores). Market was competitive due to increased competition from other players which restricted the growth in export business.

3. BUSINESS OUTLOOK:

The market does not look very supportive due to sluggish order book position. The recent ban on plastic gutka packaging has given a big blow to the Packaging Industry, which may adversely affect companys sales in the near future especially for extrusion division. At the same time, Pipe Industry is also experiencing a sluggish demand which is due to huge number of machines being added in past couple of years. However, the Company is trying to open new avenues by special focus on Export Markets & Injection Moulding Machines.

The Company was declared a sick company by the BIFR on 29th June 2006 and appointed ICICI Bank as the operating agency (OA) under 17 (3) of the Sick Industrial Companies (Special Provisions) Act, 1985. The Honble Bench of BIFR finally sanctioned the Scheme of Rehabilitation on 21 st September, 2010. The following were the principal features of the Sanctioned Scheme.

a) Reduction in the share capital by 60% whereby equity shares of Rs. 10/- each were reduced to equity shares of Rs. 4/- each.

b) Additional Equity share capital to be preferentially allotted to the Promoters /Co- Promoters, after reduction as above, subject to approval of the members by way of a special resolution.

The Companys Board decided to implemented the Sanctioned Scheme of the BIFR for rehabilitation of the Company at its Board Meeting held on 30th March 2011 and hence convened an extraordinary general meeting on 12th May 2011 in terms of the directions of the Honble Bench of BIFR. The shareholders have now, inter alia, approved the following:-

1. Issue of 1,87,50,000 equity shares of Rs. 4/- each at par to Promoters/Co-Promoters on a preferential basis as per the Sanctioned Scheme.

2. Increase in authorised share capital from Rs. 20 crores to Rs. 40 crores including sub- division of equity shares from one equity share of Rs. 4 each to 2 equity shares of Rs. 2 each. The Board deemed fit to sub-divide the equity shares as the standard face value for listed companies is either Re. 1/- or Rs.2/-, Rs. 5/-, Rs. 10/-, etc.

3. Issue of 13,60,000 equity shares to advisors subject to approval of the Bench of BIFR/ AAIFR for issue at par.

The Board shall fix in consultation with Stock Exchanges a Record Date for effecting reduction and sub-division of equity shares and shall complete the issue and allotment of new equity shares and listing thereof soon thereafter.

The Company has, on account of write-backs, reliefs and concessions, fresh issue of shares, etc., wiped out almost the whole of the accumulated losses and thus achieved a positive net worth.
