Even though your company witnessed a jumpin its Profits in FY14-15 visa-vis FY13-14 yet your company earned inadequateprofits in the fiscal in respect of the remuneration payable to its managerial person(s).Major reason for earning inadequate profits in the year had been the inability of thecompany in producing the desirable projected volumes in the fiscal due to which itsrevenues saw a growth of just under 1% in FY14-15.
Your Company has been earning profits in its operations since inception. However theoverall economy as a whole affected the profitability of the Company. Also generalworldwide economic slowdown had also adversely resulted in inadequate profits during thefinancial year 2014-15. During past few years due to overall adverse economic environmentaround the country the investments in new projects were put on hold by most of thecompanies.

Additionally with the ongoing repayment of term loans availed forproject financing your company is expected to save on its financial expenses.
