Aditya Vision Ltd. (ADITYAVISION) - Chairman Speech

Company chairman speech

It's my honour and privilege to welcome our shareholders employee and well-wishers toour 22"" Annual General Meeting which is being held online due to COVID-19pandemic. For the second year in a row I miss having physical presence of ourshareholders in AGM because of this pandemic. However we are thankful to technology whichhas enabled all of us to participate virtually in the AGM.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for your continued support and faithbestowed upon Aditya Vision Limited and its management team. I hope you and your familymembers are healthy and staying safe during this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.

The past year has been incredibly challenging for all human beings. The COVID-19pandemic has led to a dramatic loss of human life worldwide. The economic and socialdisruption caused by the pandemic is devastating. Today I and my entire team of AdityaVision offer our respects and heartfelt condolences to all those who have lost their lovedones due to this pandemic.

In this current FY 2021-22 operations and sales of the Company continued gettingadversely affected as all our showrooms and offices were closed from May 05 2021 tillJune 02 2021 due to complete lockdown announced by the State Government and thereafterwere allowed to open on limited number of days in a week with truncated timings and otherrestrictions. Because of this our showrooms were open only for 36 days in Q1FY22 withvarious restrictions including truncated timings due to lockdown/curfew imposed by theGovernment of Bihar in entire state to prevent and control the 2nd wave ofCOVID-19 pandemic. Unfortunately this situation continued till August 06 2021 affectingQ2FY22 also.

Due to pandemic discretionary physical spending has taken a backseat and disruptedsupply chain as well. As with all brick-and-mortar retail businesses your Company hasalso suffered enormously and effects on sale may be considerable in current year also.

Mankind always sees an opportunity in every adversity. For us I with my team took itup as a digital opportunity and this online AGM is just another testament of it. Toovercome the shift in consumer purchasing pattern due to hesitancy in physical shoppingthe Company launched omnichannel model (online to offline) to enable customers to shoponline and get delivery of ordered product from the nearest showroom instantly. I amdelighted to share that our omnichannel initiative has got a good response and itsperformance is being continuously monitored by my team. Company did exceedingly well onomnichannel/on-line model of sale of products through its own on-line shopping portal/Appplatform.

Our topmost priority has been to safeguard health and well-being of our employees andcustomers. Our organization was amongst the first in Bihar to organize vaccination camp inthe month of June for all the employees and their family members. Today I can confidentlysay that each of our employees is vaccinated with at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. 1must also take this opportunity to thank the Government of Bihar without whose supportthis vaccination drive would not have been possible.
