Your company operates into a segment predominantly known as "large varieties -lowvolume segment" which is not only capital intensive but also labour intensive. YourCompany is fully geared up to take advantage of the peculiarities of the said segment andhas developed a large base of SKUs to meet the diverse needs and applications.

Moreover this segment is neither exposed to any technological obsolescence nor wildfluctuations in demand for its products

The Company is continuously marching ahead to explore incremental opportunity in theform of developing "Earthmovers & mining tyres markets and taking advantage ofthe shift from bias to radial tyres which is growing up continuously. In order to takeadvantage of this opportunity the Company had first set up an all-steel OTR Radial tyreplant at its Chopanki location and further added such capacities by setting up a greenfield tyre plant at Bhuj to produce large size all steel OTR radial tyres besides othercategories of tyres.

11. RISKS / CONCERNS AND RISK MITIGATION: Fluctuation in Raw Material prices:

The Company's major raw material is Natural Rubber which is an agricultural commodityand actively traded on the commodities exchanges. Its prices fluctuate significantly andhave witnessed significantvolatility material prices have been soft in the back drop ofsubdued business environment across the globe. Of late it moved up and then softenedagain. Currently it is moving in narrow range. So is the case with other raw materials.

In order to minimize such risks the Company not only enters into medium-term contractsbut also adopts the policy to "Buy and

Stock" large quantities during the lean period.

Since most of the raw materials are imported the company is exposed to foreigncurrency risk. However it enjoys natural hedge as most of its revenues are in foreigncurrency.

The Company is able to manage the said risk by good HR practices and rewarding itsemployees handsomely.

Currency Fluctuation:

As stated earlier the company revenues are mainly generated through exports. TheCompany also imports lot of its raw materials and capital equipment's. Moreover all itsborrowings are in foreign currency and it is therefore exposed to risks due to currencyfluctuations.

The Company follows the system of hedging its receivables (net off payables) well inadvance by entering into Forward Contracts thereby protecting itself from thefluctuations in currencies to a large extent.
