Thus, the said division was unable to recover its full variable cost and accordingly, it has been decided to stop the production of Optical Media Division to arrest further losses. However, since last couple of months, the market position of the optical media products is slightly improved upon but, because of liquidity problems, the company could not commence the production of Optical Media Division. More go, the computer consumer division has also shown remarkable decline in its top line becouse of the liquidity position of the company. The conpany's reference with BIER/AAIFR is still pending. In the Financial Year 2007-08, the Company has achieved total net sales of Rs. 782.38 Lacs as against Rs. 4415.76 Lacs for the year 2006-07 In terms of Division-wise Safes,-the break-up is as under: (Rs. in lacs) % of Change Net Sales over 2006-07 2007-08 2006-07 Optical Media Division (OMD) 20.79 1897.07 (99%) Computer Consumables 761.59 2518.69 (70%) Division (CCD) Total 782.38 4415.76 FUTURE OUTLOOK Considering the government intervention for DVD-R and CD-R, anti dumping duty is imposed on Optical Media products and accordingly there is a positive impact on the demand of Optical Media products in th,: country This has also increased the net margin for Optical Media products but, due to the unprecedented liquidity crises faced by the company, your Directors could not commence the operations of the said division for the year under review. However, there are good chances that the production shall be viable in the near future and the company will be able to generate reasonable cash flow. On the other hand, the company's media and stationery division has good future outlook, becouse the company shall be able to provide cheque books to various banks as it is already registered with Reserve Bank of India as authorised printer for printing of the cheque books. Again, the financial position of the Company did not allow it to take the full advantage of its Computer Stationary Products.
