The Board of Directors in its meeting held on March 16 2016 declared and paid anInterim Dividend of Rs. 3/- per equity share of face value of Rs. 10/- each for the F.Y.2015-16. The dividend payout aggregated to Rs. 22.35 million and the tax on distributableprofits payable by the Company amounted to Rs. 4.55 million. The Board of Directors hasnot recommended any final dividend on the equity shares and considered the above InterimDividend as final dividend for the financial year ended March 31 2016.


The year 2015 has proved challenging for India specifically on the weather front withdeficient monsoons and drought at one end and unseasonal rain and devastating floods atthe other.

Adapting to climate change and building sustainable and relevant agricultural systemswould strongly relate to a healthier economy. Sustainability through improvements inefficiency and a focus on environmental issues and through addressing opportunities thatclimate change and evolving eco systems bring.

Despite being the world’s fastest growing economy the country is far fromachieving the Sustainable Development Goals adopted in 2015. Whilst India has 17% of theworld’s population it is home to 31.5% of the world’s extremely poor and nothingbut transformative change that balances economic growth with conservation beyond mereconvenience can turn the tide. The chemical industry has the power and opportunity toinfluence and advance the human condition towards a sustainable society and planet.

Current challenges in the economy with lower than anticipated growth and seriousreduction in private investment (as banks saddled with stressed assets are unable to lend)together with slack global demand have dampened earlier growth estimates.

In addition earlier challenges of poor infrastructure and port facility complex taxand duty structures have not been overcome.

However the reduction in crude oil prices has allowed the government to reduce thefiscal deficit and bring inflation under control.

It remains to be seen whether the country is really in a state of sustainable recoveryand whether we can continue to be the fastest growing economy in the world.

In addition the past year saw serious reduction in growth of several coreinfrastructure industries. Crude oil coal steel and cement all saw a slowdown in2015-16. Industrial production declined by 1.8% in June 2016 against a growth of 2.8% inthe previous year.

According to IIP data the chemical industry recorded negative growth of 2% in January2016.

In the coming financial year the Indian economy is slated to grow at 7.6% inspite ofpoor global demand and the reduction in exports seen over the previous year. This growthwould be consumption driven and therefore sufficiently sustainable. This would result ina surge of consumption for Specialty Chemicals.

It is predicted that the Specialty Chemical market which is currently USD 30 Billionwill grow to a level of USD 80 Billion by 2023.

With growth estimates of 14% CAGR the Specialty Chemical industry is expected to growmuch faster than India’s GDP. The vast potential for growth for the finished productsfrom the chemical sector can be envisaged by comparing the per capita consumption of theseproducts against world averages. Compared to developed markets the usage of SpecialtyChemicals in India is fairly low.

Most Specialty Chemical companies in India have asserted their domestic presence bydesigning and developing products that are very specific to the performance needs of anindustrial application for a particular customer/ customers.

Dai-ichi has established and positioned itself in this way in developed areas like theOil field sector the Rayon industry and the Paint industry by understanding thecustomer’s needs in full and designing niche products to meet these performancespecifications.

Financial Highlights

The total Sales Revenue for the company was Rs. 1249 million. Once again there wasonly marginal growth in certain industrial segments due to the challenges faced by ourcustomers during the year. However on the export front the company has more than doubledsales as compared to last year.

The enhanced profit from operations has come from change in product mix and consequentreduction in RM consumption and enhanced export sales.

Sector wise Performance:

There continues to be poor growth in the traditional businesses of the company as mostcustomers were facing a slow down due to the state of the global economy and the vagariesof consumer demand (affecting the sales of Specialty Chemical companies supplying to thechemical sector that face the consumer.)

In addition the impact of lowered crude oil prices resulted in lower raw materialprices alerting all customers to ask for discounts in pricing.

The Company’s business with its J V partner NALCO CHAMPION has grown bothdomestically but especially where exports are concerned. Our ability to continuouslydevelop and formulate products that are crude specific and meet the performance needs ofthe customer have allowed us to enhance business in this area substantially. The lowerprices of crude oil have marginally impacted expansions and delayed projects in the Oilsector but the impact of this on the company has not been noticeable so far.

The Company’s Polyacrylamide plant at Kurkumbh has once again seen a poor year asit faced customer resistance from the Mining and Coal sectors and aggressive competitionin the Sugar sector. The company’s efforts to export product are receiving limitedsuccess so far. The company now is looking for a strategic relationship with anInternational player to support its presence in this field.

The Company’s expansion at Dahej has received environmental clearance earlier thisyear and the company is in the process of awarding contracts to its Technology supplier aswell Engineering Consultants.

It is expected that by the second/ third quarter next year some of the crucial plantswould be operational at Dahej.

At this time as the company contemplates doubling its capacity and setting up state ofthe art new facilities at Dahej it is strengthening its portfolio of products to includegreener products and processes not only in its present area of focus viz Paints Coatingsand Textile but also in looking at new areas where its ability to synthesise well definedand meaningful products using newer processes and technologies will be recognised. Slowlythe company’s new speciality products which were being stalled by customers as beingtoo expensive are now being accepted and introduced into the market. The company’sarray of products in the area of Emulsion Polymersation and Paints are slowly gainingrecognition as reputed paint companies are including these products in their main streamofferings. Requirement of water based Paints & Coatings and the requirements of APEOfree products speeded up the development of several new anionic and non ionic surfactants.So also a number of reactive & polymerizable surfactants specifically for exteriorcoating could be successfully launched. As time goes this segment should see phenomenalgrowth for which new generation polymerizable surfactants are also being targeted. Thecompany could develop several surfactant formulations for making micro emulsion in theareas of Amino silicone oil PDMS silicone oil and Diesel-water micro emulsion for staticdiesel engines.

The R&D developed super emulsifiers for pigment emulsions for Textile Printing:

1) APEO free surfactants

2) In the areas of pigment purification and processing

The company has worked on APGs which are based on natural resources. More work is athand to further the progress in this area.

Another area of achievement are products for Construction Industry. A majorbreakthrough was in the development of clinker saver and strength enhancer for cementmanufacturing followed by Super Plasticizers for High Strength self compacting CementConcrete.

Working Capital Management:

The significant ratios of the Company such as Ratio of Inventory to Sales is 10.70%Receivable to Sales is 15.79% and Net Working Capital to Sales is 28.28%.

The working capital was rotated 3 times in the year showing effective working capitalmanagement. Funds surplus to the operational requirements have been invested in safe andrelatively risk free instruments to earn a reasonable return.
