The Board has approved in its Board Meeting held on 1st December 2014 a proposal of theCompany for developing an integrated township in the CFS land area of 63.89 acres wherethe general warehousing activity was carried on. Consequently the Company discontinuedthe general warehousing operation with effect from 1st January 2015 and all the godownshave been completely vacated in the months of January/February 2015. Due to the totaldiscontinuance of general warehousing operations there is no rental income except ameager amount of Rs.4.53 lakhs as against Rs.718.61 lakhs earned in the previous year. Thesale of building material as Scrap amounting to Rs.162.78 lakhs mainly constitutesRevenue. The expenditure has gone up to Rs.1033.83 lakhs from Rs.527.06 lakhs mainly onaccount of increase in the financial cost to the tune of Rs.247.50 lakhs and write-off ofFixed Assets (Building) to the tune of Rs.199.81 lakhs.

JOINT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT (JDA) WITH M/S.SPR CONSTRUCTION PVT.LTD.
You are aware that the Company is embarked upon development of a World-class IntegratedTownship on Joint Development Model in its main land area of 63.89 acres (previously usedfor CFS operations) at Perambur. For the same the Company has entered into a JointDevelopment Agreement (JDA) on 26.6.2015 on revenue sharing model with M/s.SPRConstruction Pvt. Ltd. Chennai.
The integrated township is planned around a development of a wholesale marketecosystem
co-location of Residential Project development within the township in addition tobeing serviced by the finest brands in Healthcare Hospitality Education andEntertainment.

TheProject is expected to start by end of this year and shall be developed over a period of7-9 years in a phased manner wherein first phase is expected to be delivered in 36-42months from the start of the construction.
Due to its proximity to the Chennai railway station and Chennai Port Binny Ltd and SPRGroup believe that this project can create an opportunity from the current physical andsocial infrastructure problems and lack of availability of legal premises in Sowcarpet(South India's largest Wholesale Market) located at just 3 kms. away from the ProjectSite. Management believes that this property of 63.89 acres having road access from allfour sides is the only such large private land within close proximity thus presenting astrong opportunity for development of wholesale market as an extension / alternative /parallel to Sowcarpet market and also a fully integrated residential township with SchoolHospital Convention cum cultural Centre with 3500+ seating capacity and Retail Mall &Entertainment Area.
This development will be based on the concept of a smart city with a vision of"Where Business Meets Life". The expected size of development under current CMDAregulations would be based on 2.5 Basic FSI + 1 premium FSI (subject to approvals).Currently Ernst and Young is undertaking a study for analyzing social-cost benefit forcreating an alternative to Sowcarpet and suggesting measures to be pursued with GovernmentAuthorities to revitalize existing infrastructure and surrounding of the site.
