DCM Ltd. (DCM) - Director Report

Company director report

Your directors have pleasure in presenting this 126th Annual Report togetherwith the Audited Financial Statements of your Company for the year ended March 31 2016.

ECONOMIC SCENARIO

The year was marked by an economic slow-down with demand continuing to be sluggish andthe rural economy coming under stress due to a below-normal monsoon and unseasonal rains.The international market also faced headwinds in terms of sluggish economiesgeo-political issues and currency volatility in some markets.

However a decade-low slump in oil prices a major drain on India’s import billgave the desired boost to the governments foreign exchange reserves. Inflation and currentaccount deficit levels were maintained below the guidance targets. It provided the muchrequired momentum to the key macro indicators of the Indian economy in the year 2015-16.

The government has taken several initiatives like ‘Ease of Doing Business’fresh investments in the roads and railways sectors revival of 50 airports ‘SmartCity’ development urban development encouraging startups and skill development etc.The impact of most of these measures can only be gauged over a period of time and may notget reflected in the economic numbers immediately and they must hence be interpreted morein terms of laying a foundation for future growth.

India is a bright spot in a depressed global landscape. The Indian economy is on asteady growth path. The consequent increase in private consumption is likely to continuethrough 2016 making it possible for India to sustain its leading position as the largestfast-growing economy.

During the year the Division made total dispatch of 40544 MT (previous year 47338MT). The volume continued to remain low primarily due to lower supplies to the tractorindustry which constitutes a major portion of the sales volume of the Division. It was dueto low demand in tractor segment on account of poor monsoon in two consecutive years whichaffected the agri sector both in terms of income and sentiment.

However the volume growth in the tractor industry is likely to improve in financialyear 2016-17 due to expected normal monsoon besides strong government support in budgetfor improvement in agricultural productivity and adoption of improved agriculturalpractices.

The losses during the year were due to continued lower volume under-recovery of fixedoverheads and reduction made in margins to retain market share due to intensivecompetition by new entrants supplying at lower rate(s).

The continued focus on process improvements and manufacturing techniques across allareas of operations has helped the Division to maintain cost effectiveness.
