It gives me immense pleasure in addressing this communication to you particularlyconsidering the fact that the financial year 2015-16 in a way is a land mark year for yourcompany considering the fact that your Company has surpassed the sales figure of Rs. 72crores and also considering the fact that we are being considered as Serious Long TermPlayer in the national market of Agro Chemicals.
Let me share with you certain important developments which I feel are strategic interms of charting the course of the future growth trajectory of your Company. Thus firstand foremost your Company has continued its strong march of further consolidating itsposition as leading quality supplier of high quality agro chemicals country wide with ourpresence being in eight states in brand products and in other states in bulk formulations.Thus most of the major companies in this industry are our customers or suppliers. It isheartening to mention that notwithstanding the continuation of a relatively depressedeconomic growth scenario in the major markets of the country and overseas we haveactually achieved a positive growth through a growth in the market share and geographicalextension of our market reach which is now practically in major parts of the country.
However more heartening is the fact that the endeavour that we began in the marketingand production around 8 years ago and continued till date has now gathered momentum and inthe years to this will be a major growth driver on sustained basis. In financial year2015-16 we have achieved 14.04% which has come through increased sales in the differentlevels of customer in wide spread geographical area. Today your company is servicing majoragrochemicals companies in domestic and export markets. Several new opportunities areunder development. Thus the medium to long term growth prospects are indeed bright.
Through a strong and dedicated team your Company has demonstrated a proven capabilityprofile of finding cost effective and innovative solutions for the customers and thisprocess will continue on a consistent basis in the years to come; which will eventuallyhelp your company in achieving its vision of becoming a one of the National leader in thisniche business of agrochemicals.
