Bhaskar Agrochemicals Ltd. (BHASKARAGROCHEM) - Director Report

Company director report

ANNUAL REPORT 1999-2000 BHASKAR AGROCHEMICALS LIMITED DIRECTORS' REPORT TO THE MEMBERS The Directors of your Company have pleasure in presenting their Twelveth Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31st March, 2000. FINANCIAL RESULTS At the very outset, your directors are glad to inform you that despite difficult business environment prevailing in the pesticide Industry, your Company could achieve reasonable growth in volumes and operating margins by recording a turnover of Rs.2266.68 lakhs (Previous year Rs.2405 67 lakhs). This is to be viewed against the back drop of steep price erosion and static sales growth in the pesticide industry. The reasons for moderate performance is mainly due to further continuation of adverse season for commercial crops, which not only had a negative effect on the pesticide consumption but also resulted in poor yields to the user segment. Inspite of poor Industry performance, your company could increase its volumes through continuous efforts on market penetration and widening distribution net work there by improving its market share on food crops by launching new products and sustaining its investment in marketing efforts on key Products. During the year the Monocrotophos plant was to shutdown for 3 months for installation of new equipment intended for manufacturer of Quinolphos. The Trial runs have been carried out and commercial production is expected to be commenced shortly. DIVIDEND : Keeping in view the financial performance of the Company, yours Directors do not recommend any dividend for this year also. CAPITAL EXPENDITURE: During the year review the company has incurred capital Expenditure of Rs. 214.13 Lakhs. FUTURE OUTLOOK: Pesticide Industry today is witnessing certain positive change and is passing through a transformation to a much better phase. There has been major shakeouts of many units leaving only few players having strong distribution net work in the market including your company who have survived the turbulent times. Monocrotophos is also likely to improve as some of the units in the industry have stopped or curtailed production. Your company is re-orienting its strategies to take advantage of this situation and it hopes to operate at its optimum capacity. Plans are also on the anvil for introducing value-added products so as to improve its performance. Your company is constantly endeavoring to improve its existing product portfolio and develop new ones intandem with the customer's needs . The current year started on a promising note with sales picking up. Company's various initiatives like adding new products to the existing product range, aggressive marketing initiatives supported by improvement in supply chain management, various cost reduction measures and focus on improving customer value would be able to sustain the growth of the company and better its performance in the current year.
