Economy Overview

The financial year 2015-16 continued to experience moderation in general price levels.The significant decline in the price of the Indian basket of crude oil through the directand second round effects partly contributed to the decline in general inflation for thesecond successive year. The decline in core inflation was largely on account of thedecline in the inflation in housing (rent) transport communication education and otherservices.

Operating Performance

During the year under review your company recorded a turnover of 140.73 crs ascompared to 144.86 crs in the previous year. The decline in turnover was primarily due tolower price realisation on gelatin products. Profit before tax declined to 12.98 crores ascompared to 23.40 crores in 2014-15 on account of lower price realisation and increase inraw material input cost.


Your Directors recommend a dividend of 4.00 per Equity Share (last year 3.50 per EquityShare) for the financial year ended March 31 2016. The total outflow on account of theproposed dividend including dividend distribution tax will be 291.24 lacs (previous year254.07 lacs).

Industry Structure and Developments

Gelatin finds use in industries such as food and beverages pharmaceutical andcosmetics. However cultural and religious barriers in India and scepticism on the use ofgelatin derived from animals across the world are factors which inhibit the overall marketgrowth. Growing regulatory issues primarily in the food industry are also challenges forgelatin manufacturers.

Opportunities and Threats Outlook Risks and Concerns

With increasing level of awareness on environmental hazards the stateauthorities are upgrading pollution control norms regularly and the industry is nowrequired to address the issue of environment with more commitment. Your company continuesto take all necessary steps to comply with pollution control norms.

Difficulty in sourcing good quality raw material and rise in raw material prices areareas of concern. The import of poor quality gelatin into India is a matter of healthconcern and affects proper price realisation for the gelatin produced by the domesticmanufacturers. Furthermore availability of cheap raw material in EU USA etc has pusheddown the gelatine prices globally which has affected the pricing in the domestic market.Large quantities of gelatin are being imported into India at prices lower than thedomestic prices which is a major concern for the industry.

While your company is taking all actions to improve product mix yield and productivityalong with cost reduction measures the shortage of raw material due to lower meat exportsis resulting in an unprecedented increase in price of raw materials. Furthermore the dropin oil prices have affected the exports of capsules to the African countries and Russia.Cheaper imports lower demand in the domestic market and higher raw material prices arelikely to impact margins and have an adverse impact on the performance of your company atleast in the short term.
