Your Board of Directors on March 09 2015 had decided to sell/dispose off the Powerplant/ Project in the wholly owned subsidiary subject to necessary approvals from theshareholders and other statutory authorities if any which could also not materialize.

This is to further apprise that Mr. Gagan Rastogi has been infusing unsecured loan toSRM Energy Tamilnadu Pvt. Ltd. the wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Since 2014 Mr.Rastogi has been demanding his loan to be repaid. Previously upon his demand a requestwas made to him that he should allow us time to be in a position where the repayment ofhis loan could be positively considered.
However recently the subsidiary has settled the Loan of Mr. Gagan Rastogi to theextent of Rs. 9.257 Crores by way of assigning the amount as receivable from KrishnaEnterprises in his favour through an MOU and assignment agreement on an as is where isbasis.

The total amount due till date (14th August 2017) is Rs.402226000/- Mr. Gagan Rastogi has demanded for the balance amount to be repaid. Thismatter was discussed in detailed in your Board in the light of the fact that Mr. Rastogiin the past had demanded his money but the same could not be repaid due to the badfinancial position of the Company. However the subsidiary Company as a measure to run theproject decided to find investors to procure requisite investments into the Company forthe establishment of project. The subsidiary Company had also taken the services of twoCatagory-1 Merchant Bankers for finding investors. The Merchant Bankers after their duediligence and detailed deliberations had shown their inability to find any investorsmajorly on the following grounds:
That the present investment made by the Promoter was low.
The current Industrial scenario Govt. policies Company's current status ofapprovals status for the land acquisitions and its financial health etc. were notfavorable.
The sincere efforts of the Board of the subsidiary Company to arrange funds for itsproject implementation and operation could not materialize due to stringent / adverseconditions.

Presentlythe situation is such that the Company (including its subsidiary) is completely dependenton the financial assistance made by Mr. Gagan Rastogi as no operation of the Company couldstart till date and the investors for the project could not be found as the situation ofthe Company is similar as to the earlier date.
Your Board after taking into consideration the aforesaid facts and also afterconsidering the present situation financial position and project implementation statusetc. of the Company discussed and deliberated all the possible ways / options to dealwith the prevailing situation the board also noted that at present the Subsidiary Companyhas no inflow of funds other than the financial assistance of Mr. Gagan Rastogi and Mr.Rastogi has intimated that he is not in a position to continue with further assistance.
The Board in present scenarios find it suitable for the Company to explore whether anyof the assets of the Company including subsidiary Company could be offered to him towardsthe settlement of his loan extended to the Company. The Board after such discussionconsented to make an offer to Mr. Rastogi as a settlement of his loan and further proposeto revalue the Assets/Land of the Company/subsidiary Company to determine the presentvalue of the same which could be offered to him for settlement.
The board further appointed two Independent local Registered valuers to determine thefair market value of the land of the Companywho have assigned a value of Rs. 9.50 croresand 9.75 crores respectively towards the assets. Based on the aforesaid valuation anoffer was given to Mr. Rastogi towards settlement of his loan as such.
