The details of Committee and its terms of reference are set out in the Corporate Governance Report forming part of the Board''s Report.

The Company has a robust Business Risk Management (BRM) framework to identify, evaluate, treat and Report business risks. This framework seeks to create transparency, minimize adverse impact on the business objectives and enhance the Company''s competitive advantage. The business risk framework defines the risk management approach across the enterprise at various levels including documentation and reporting. The framework has different risk models which help in identifying risks trend, exposure and potential impact analysis at a Company level as well as business segments and its mitigation plans.

The business risks identified by the Company and its mitigation plans are as under:

Project Risks:

In the context of the projects being executed, the Company reviews the risks associated with a project in all the following aspects, but not restricted to:

- Client related details such as financial closure of the project, creditworthiness and reputation of the client.

- Estimation risks like price and quantity variances, contingency provision, forex fluctuation on a periodic basis.

- Commercial risks like taxes and duties, payment terms, bank guarantee requirements

- Organizational risks like availability of technical and managerial resources, gap funding needs, consortium partners roles and responsibilities.

- Performance risk like achievability of guarantee parameters, time schedule, warranty and defect liability obligations.

- Interfacing risks like coordination with multiple agencies for approvals and clearances.

- Geographic risks like unfavorable weather conditions, earth quake, floods etc.

Above key risks are closely tracked for timely mitigation.

Competition Risks:

The Infrastructure Industry is becoming intensely competitive with the foray of new entrants and some of the existing players adopting inorganic growth strategies. To mitigate this risk, the Company is leveraging on its expertise, experience to increase market share, enhance brand equity / visibility and enlarge product portfolio and service offerings.

Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) Risks:

Safety of employees and workers is of utmost importance to the Company. To reinforce the safety culture in the Company, it has identified occupational health & safety as one of its focus areas. Various training programmes have been conducted at the sites such as behavior based safety training program, visible safety leadership program, logistics safety program etc.

ECONOMIC SCENARIO AND OUTLOOK

Global growth disappointed again in 2015, slowing to 2.4 percent, and is expected to recover at a slower pace than previously envisioned. The GDP (Gross Domestic Product) growth in India dipped marginally this year as expansion in public investment weakened under fiscal constraints. Private corporations continuing to deleverage. Private sector capex continued to be very limited. The weak balance sheets of public sector banks hampered lending and growth prospects.

The medium term to long term growth prospects look positive in view of the Government of India taking significant initiatives to boost the infrastructure sector. The Government of India planning to launch the National Infrastructure Investment Fund (NIFF) is a big step forward.

ECONOMIC SCENARIO AND OUTLOOK

Indian economic growth in 2014 rose to ~5.2% from 4.7% last year as a result of the improving macro-economic situation. The wholesale and consumer price inflation has fallen to ~4.2% and 7.4% from last year's 6.3% and 10.1% on the back of a strong base effect. Falling oil prices, lower food and commodity prices and the proactive measures taken by the Government helped in containing inflation in 2014. Contrary to expectations, agricultural growth was strong at ~4.5% in 2014. However, the slow pace of reforms, lack of impetus for infrastructure projects, high interest rates and tightening of fiscal policies adversely impacted the capital goods sector. Industrial production / output was also sluggish.

The low economic growth appears to have bottomed out and a gradual increase in economic activity is expected in 2015. The medium term to long term growth prospects look positive in view of the Government's determination to bring in reforms. For the year 2015, the economy is expected to grow at a higher rate than in 2014. The long term prospects for the economy is optimistic.

The price increase was to the extent of 300% due to supply constraints from the only source - China. This significantly affected margins and forced the Company to reduce its output and decline contracts that were not viable at these prices. Magnet prices have subsequently corrected and new sources should shortly enterthe market.

LSML has also started operations in the States of Maharashtra & AP and we are confident that LSML during the coming year will perform better with increased order book and newer products, which are undertesting.
