Globally, the industry is amongst fastest growing sectors. Within this context, India is viewed as one of the most promising markets among the developing countries and is projected to reach USD 140 billion by 2017. India is one of the world's most lucrative healthcare markets, and is expanding rapidly, according to latest findings by a report published in February 2012, by market research firm RNCOS. India is the most competitive destination with advantages of lower cost and sophisticated treatments, according to RNCOS report titled 'Indian Healthcare - New Avenues for Growth'. The Indian Government, on its part, is promoting this sector through positive regulations like the introduction of the Health Bill, which proposes to bring all independent bodies. The Government has also decided to increase health expenditure to 2.5 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP) by the end of the 12th Five Year Plan, from the current 1.4 per cent. In addition a number of initiatives that have been proposed and taken up by the Government of India (GOI) for enhancement of the healthcare sector: * 100 per cent Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is permitted in health and medical services under the automatic route * Allocation for National Rural Health Mission (NHRM) has proposed to be increased from Rs. 18,115 crore (US$ 3.59 billion) in 2011-12 to Rs. 20,822 crore (US$ 4.13 billion) in 2012-13 * National Urban Health Mission is being launched * Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana, a Health Insurance Scheme for low income group people, being expanded to cover upgradation of 7 more Government medical colleges The initiatives by the Government to promote Healthcare industry are in turn more beneficial and profitable to the growth of your company. However, due to the lack of affordability among the majority of Indians and increase in cost structure for the segment, profitability has taken a hit. This has in turn led to continuous demands from the end users for reduction in cost of Medical equipments and consumables. We still feel that this industry has tremendous potential due to the unmet demand in the country. Also the spread of Health Insurance is a must for the further growth and development of the Industry as a whole. Currently hardly 5% of India's population is covered under some kind of Health Insurance and as such the scope is huge. As the coverage of Insurance increases the demand for Healthcare Services will increase in the country, leading to increase in demand for our products. Year at a Glance: The year gone by has been a year of consolidation for your Company. The focus had been on increasing our turnover in the various products and that the turnover of the Company for the year under review has increased to Rs.19528.47 lakhs. This is an increase of almost 15%. The net turnover has increased to Rs. 18317.75 lakhs (increase of almost 8%). However, EBIDTA of the company has decreased to Rs. 574.06 lakhs as compared to that of Rs. 897.79 lakhs in previous year. Besides the intense competition, another major cause for the reduction in margins is due to the immense volatility in Foreign exchange rates during the year. Your company has started taking steps to reduce the borrowings and the interest cost in the coming year as the company has not invited or renewed any deposits this year. Product-wise performance: Your Company primarily supplies to the Hospitals and Diagnostic Centres. Broadly we classify the Company's products in manufacturing and trading. During the year the manufacturing goods turnover increased from Rs.11696.05 lakhs to Rs. 12632.22 lakhs at Gross level and Rs. 10597.48 lakhs to Rs.11421.50 lakhs at Net level. The trading goods turnover has increased from Rs. 6221.18 lakhs to Rs. 6816.41 lakhs. Outlook: Fitch India Private Limited, a Credit Rating agency, has come out with its report on Indian healthcare sector. In a recent report, the agency has classified the outlook for the sector for 2012 as stable. According to the rating agency some level of consolidation in the highly fragmented healthcare industry along with improved occupancy rates and average revenues per operating bed could be positive for the sector in 2012. Fitch Ratings expects growth in Indian health care sector in 2012 to be driven by the gap between demand and supply in health care services in the country due to increasing lifestyle-related health problems, changing demographics, increasing disposable income and insurance penetration, below par healthcare infrastructure (especially in Tier II and Tier III cities, or smaller cities), government support and increasing medical tourism. The overall industry scenario is upbeat, propelled by a growing economy, shifting demographics, rising disposable incomes, high incidence of lifestyle-induced diseases, new investment avenues and a large pool of talented and cost-effective human resource. The segments that are reaping the most benefits are hospitals, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment companies, pathological labs and other service providers, Going forward in FY 2012-2013 we expect moderate growth rates. Your Company has grown substantially over the last 6 years and has grabbed all the possible opportunities by supplying its products to major Hospitals and Diagnostic Centres. It is looking at adding more and more products which shall be contributing to the Profitability of the Company. Also as a policy your Company, always first ties up the Sales and Marketing of the products before venturing into manufacturing. Opportunities and Threats: Currently approx. 5% of India population is covered under Health Insurance. With the entry of private Health Insurance Companies, we expect a sizeable percent of the Indian Population which is currently not able to afford treatment would in time to come be able to avail of the same. This will lead to increased demand for your company's products. Further your Company being one of the few all India players, it will be able to tie up with more Companies to sell and market their products. The main threat for your Company is the low entry barrier in this field wherein a lot of new players are entering the Distribution of Healthcare products. However due to the All India infrastructure and base, your Company is confident of growing in the increased competitive landscape. Another major threat that the Company faces is the direct entry of Multinational Companies in India. Even here we do not foresee much of a threat as they eventually need an All India player like your Company to enable them to be a have a proper Sales and Distribution Network. Risks and Concerns: One of the key risk and concern for your Company is the advent of Computer Radiology in India. Though not an immediate risk, this is a matter of concern in the long run. Your Company as a strategy has been adding more and more products in its portfolio to negate this risk in the long run. In fact, in spite of the advent of Computer Radiology your Company has been able to maintain and marginally increase the turnover. Another key risk is the extreme volatility in the Foreign Exchange rates. This is something that is affecting majority of the Industries whether Import or Export Based. However looking at the Global Scenario and higher growth rates in GDP in India, we feel in the medium and long range the INR to be range bound. Also your Company has been able to neutralise the effect of this volatility by passing on the benefits or losses to some extent down the chain i.e. Dealer Network. Internal Control systems and their adequacy: The company has instituted adequate internal control systems to commensurate with the nature of its business and the size of its operations. An Audit Committee consisting of four independent, non- executive directors is in place. Internal Audit is conducted on regular intervals at plant and office which covers key areas of operations. All significant audit observations and follow-up actions thereon are reported to the Audit Committee. The Company has appointed a Cost Accountant to ensure adequate control systems and to reduce wastages in the manufacturing process. The Cost Accountant shall be responsible for maintaining cost records and issue Compliance Report. Human Resources: The Company regards its human resource as amongst its most valuable assets and proactively reviews policies and processes by creating a work environment that encourages initiative, provides challenges and opportunities and recognizes the performance and potentials of its employees. Total number of employees as on 31st March, 2012 stood at 167, who form the experienced, educated and hard working pool of Human resources. Your Company's industrial relations continued to be cordial during the year under review. Your Company conducts regular in-house training programs for employees at various levels. Employees are also sent for selected external training programs. Financial Performance Operational Income: Your Company achieved a total operational income of Rs.18426.63 lakhs against last year's operational income of Rs. 17083.76 lakhs which translates into a growth of about 7.86%. EBIDTA: Your Company's EBIDTA margin stood Rs. 574.06 lakhs as compared to Rs. 897.79 lakhs in previous year. The reduction in EBIDTA margin of 36% is due to the immense volatility in Foreign exchange rates. Other Income: Your Company earned other income of Rs. 23.86 lakhs as against Rs. 31.35 lakhs in previous year. Profit after tax: The profit after tax was Rs. 126.64 lakhs as against Rs.340.50 lakhs in previous year.
