Dividend Directors are unable to declare dividend in view of the losses. 3. Performance ISO Certifiaction The Bureau Veritas has issued the Company the ISO 9001-2000 certification. This certification would enable the Company to supply value added products to customers in such industries as auto components, automobiles, white goods and Defence. Implementation of BIFR order The company has complied with the BIFR Order as contained in the approved Rehabilitation Scheme and is implementing the same. Markets The first year after the BIFR Order has been rather eventful. For the first six months the raw material prices were stable and we had managed to reach the production of 500 MT per month. Thereafter the prices for our raw material viz. Hot Rolled Coils (HRC) kept on increasing every month. This has created tremendous pressure on the company in terms of working capital and also achieving higher and higher sales prices. Despite these and other problems the contribution has increased though the production has come down. The production has come down due to the non availability of raw material. Fund Raising The company is exploring various avenues of fund raising. As the price of HRC is stabilizing at higher level, the Company is exploring strategic tie ups for the supply of raw materials and is further looking to restructure its business. Outlook Though the outlook looks uncertain due to the increase in prices of steel, power and transportation, we are confident that due to the long standing relations with customers and quality of products of the company we would be in a position to ride through the uncertain times. 4. Directors' Responsibility Statement In terms of Section 217(2AA) of the Companies Act, 1956, the Directors state that; (a) in the preparation of annual accounts, the applicable accounting standards have been followed and that there has been no material departure: (b) the Directors have selected such accounting policies and applied them consistently and made judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent so as to give a true and fair view of the state of the affairs of the Company as at 31st March, 2008 and the losses for the year ended on that date; (c) Directors have taken proper and sufficient care for the maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956 as amended from time to time; (d) Directors have taken proper and sufficient care, in consonance with the financial situation of the Company, for safeguarding the assets of the Company and for preventing and detecting fraud and other irregularities; and (e) Directors have prepared the accounts on a going concern basis. 6.
