The Directors are pleased to present the Twenty Fourth Annual Report on the working of the Company along with the audited statements of accounts for the financial year ended 31st March, 2013.

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

(a) Industry Structure and Development: Man-made fibre industry is well poised for reasonable growth despite slow down in European and certain other markets. Polypropylene fibre industry was not growing at the same rate as Polyester fibre because many sectors where PP should be used is replaced by Polyester .because of lower prices. Certain novel uses have been found in some sectors where use of PP fibre cannot be replaced and this augurs well for PP fibre industry and it should also show similar growth as other fibres.

(b) Segment-wise operational performance : Your Company operates into only one business segment - Manufacturing of Man Made Fibres.

Turnover for the year ended 31st March, 2013 amounted to Rs. 5825.62 lacs as against Rs. 5349.94 lacs last year. Operating profit stood at Rs. 621.17 lacs as againstRs. 541.72 lacs in the previous year. Cash profit was atRs. 726.96 lacs as against Rs. 635.98 lacs in the earlier year. Profit before tax stood atRs. 621.17 lacs as againstRs. 541.72 lacs in the earlier year and Profit after tax was at Rs. 444.84 lacs as against Rs. 354.12 lacs in the previous year.

Production during the year was higher at 4401 tons as against 4172 tons in the previous year. Sales of fibre including self consumption for conversion was 4328 tons as compared to 4224 tons last year. Sales of yarn was at 887 tons as compared to 1078 tons last year.

The year under review saw highest revenues, production and sales during a year since inception of the Company.

(c) Outlook : The general outlook for the industry is bright. Several sectors have been identified where use of PP fibre will be essential. Besides traditional need in various "infrastructure sector" its use has started in fabrics used for soil erosion and collection of ashes from power plants. To take advantage of expected increase in demand the company has augmented its capacity and commercial production was commenced during tne year.

(d) Threats and concerns : With considerable depreciation of Indian currency and European market being in bad shape there is not much of a threat from imports. However, in view of expected surge in demand competitors may also enlarge their capacity and market may need some time to stabilize and achieve correct balance between demand and supply. However, as an abundant precaution, based upon the size of operations of the Company the management is maintaining fairly decent amount of readily available liquidity to meet any unforeseen exigencies that may arise and in this spirit has also made certain nominal investment during the year under review, in the real estate sector in another state whereby yields are expected to be fairly good. Based upon the outcome of this investment, decision will be made in future whether to continue along this line or not.

(e) Internal control systems and their adequacy : Adequate internal control systems are in place to maintain quality of product, proper accounting as per norms laid, asset maintenance and its proper usRs.. All assets are adequately covered by comprehensive insurance. Independent Internal Auditor reviews accounts periodically and ''Audit Committee'' of the Board overviews the same and ensures compliance.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

(a) Industry Structure and Development : Despite severe global economic turbulence in all major sectors of the economy, Man-made Fibre Industry maintained consumption pattern and Polypropylene Fibre, the youngest and smallest part of this industry in our country followed the same trend. However, there is a wide gap in per capita consumption of PP Fibre as compared to developed countries. The major areas of consumption of PP Fibre in the world market viz. Geo-Textiles and for hygiene applications is yet to show substantial opening. Currently in India the application in both these sectors is bare minimal but once the consumption picks up it can lead to phenomenal growth and development of PP Fibre Industry and the Company.

(b) Segment-wise operational performance : Your Company operates into only one business segment - Manufacturing of Man Made Fibres.

Turnover for the year ended 31st March, 2010 amounted to Rs. 3581.49 lacs as against Rs. 3689.30 lacs last year. Operating profit stood at Rs. 501.30 lacs as against Rs. 534.11 lacs in the previous year. Cash profit was at Rs. 485.50 lacs as against Rs. 519.26 lacs in the earlier year. Profit before tax stood at Rs. 390.34 lacs as against Rs. 428.28 lacs in the earlier year and Profit after tax was higher at Rs. 286.37 lacs as against Rs. 269.75 lacs in the previous year.

Production during the year was at 3398 tons being marginally lower than in the previous year at 3502 tons. Sales of fibre including self consumption for conversion was 3471 tons as compared to 3406 tons last year. Sales of yarn was higher at 798 tons as compared to 731 tons last year. From the resources available after taxes and from balance available from earlier years Rs. 10 Cores have been transferred to General Reserve.

(c) Outlook : The general outlook for the industry was fairly steady. The domestic market continued to maintain steady consumption. With speciai emphasis on Infrastructure sector it can further augur weli for the Company. Use of geo-textile in construction of new roads, rails, which is a standard norm in developed countries can lead to a phenomenal rise in demand of your Companys products.

(d) Threats and concerns : Your Company continues to maintain constant guard from possible imports and to ward off this threat the pricing of the finished goods is done accordingly so as to match the international prices. The non utilization of geo-textiles as a standard in large projects by the Government is of concern to the Company, whereby the requirement of PP Fibre should be highest as per international standards. The Company continues to maintain close vigil on supplies in the domestic market from the new players and is constantly taking necessary measures to ward off any un-warranted threat from the recent entrants. Overall global economic environment is of concern to the management.

(e) Internal control systems and their adequacy : Adequate internal control systems are in place to maintain quality of product, proper accounting as per norms laid, asset maintenance and its proper use. All assets are adequately covered by comprehensive insurance. Independent Internal Auditor reviews accounts periodically and Audit Committee of the Board overviews same and ensures compliance.

(f) Human Resources and Industrial Relations : The Company has adequate and qualified human resources and enjoys cordial relations with all its employees at all levels. Number of employees are 96 as on 31st March 2010. The Board of Directors wish to place on record its highest appreciation for the contribution made by all the employees during the year.
