Company director report

MODERN DENIM LIMITED ANNUAL REPORT 2011-2012 DIRECTOR'S REPORT The Members, Your Directors have pleasure in presenting Annual Report and audited accounts for the financial year ended on March 31st, 2012. FINANCIAL RESULTS (Rs. In crores) 2011-12 2010-11 Net Profit for the year before exceptional items 1.29 3.08 Exceptional items - 69.94 Net profit after exceptional items 1.29 73.02 2. OPERATIONS During the financial year, the Company has achieved a turnover of about Rs.167 crores as against Rs. 143 crores during the previous financial year. With the entry of new manufacturers and additions to the capacities by all the major producers of denim in the country, there has been surplus in the market with the average realizations declined during the year under review. Company is facing acute shortage of working capital which has impacted profitability of the Company for the year. Production cost pushed up due to exorbitant increase in power and other input cost. Inspite of difficult business conditions prevailing in the domestic textile market and continued recessionary trend prevailing in global textile markets, your Company has been able to generate net profit of about Rs. 1.29 crores as against net profit of Rs. 3.08 crores in previous year. The exports of Denim are not remunerative due to world wide competition in the global market of Denim Industry, flooding of cheaper denim fabric by China, East Asian Countries & Pakistan. However, the Company is continuing its efforts to explore opportunities for its products in overseas markets and could export the Denim Fabrics of about Rs. 2 crores during the year under review. Your Company has also taken several remedial steps to meet the challenges viz. measures of saving in cost at all fronts of operation, optimize use of available resource etc. Your Directors regret their inability to recommend any dividend for year under review in absence of net profits. 3. FUTURE PROSPECTS Since last few years the Denim Industry is passing through difficult business conditions. Due to change in fashion the demand of denim fabric has declined world over resulting into over supply situation. Over supply situation coupled with lower demand have squeezed the margins not only of your Company but almost of every leading houses in denim segment of textiles. The substantial increase in the number of players in denim sector is a cause of worry and may lead to further glut in the market. Domestic demand is expected to grow at 20-25% whereas supply growth is expected to be in excess of 50%. The long term success is possible only when the product mix is diversified. However such diversification will need large investment which is not possible for your Company as we have shortage of funds. Thus prospects of Denim industry remains uncertain. 4.

Once settlement with the remaining secured lenders are completed, company will file fully tied up Draft Rehabilitation Scheme with Operating Agency & Hon'ble BIFR. 5.
