I am delighted to report that our strategy to put energy where it matters forincreased focus and efficiency to accelerate growth is on-point to bear fruit. We are onthe journey to place an optimal model for growth. We've made strategic checks to improveefficiency. We invested in increasing our people in the frontline equipping them with thecapabilities required to excel at the job. We reduced spend in noncustomer-facingactivity. We optimised our product portfolio making new product launches and identifyingkey products behind which we put resources to actively promote. We also have a morestructured approach to engaging our trade channel partners with a dedicated team toengage health care professionals and online marketing team. This approach has helped usserve our consumers and you our shareholders better in 2019-20.

By embracingthe power of Digital Data & Analytics we are evolving and aspiring to a state oftransformation whereby highly credible data digital tools and experiential learningwill significantly improve customer engagement and experience on our e-commerce platformwww.beyoungstore.com.

Superiority to Win Consumers

As a science-led company we have always harnessed the power of nutrition science tohelp consumers achieve their wellness goals. This year was no different. We recentlylaunched ZnC an advanced immunity booster Super Orange chewable delivers a citrus-yburst of essential nutrients including Zinc and Vitamin C to help make it a super day. Wealso launched Protein+ Delicious Protein with Natural Coffee a unique blend formulatedfrom the union of Protein Coffee and 75 Micronutrients selected directly from the bestharvests.

At DHC we believe that it is notjust what you achieve that counts but how you achieveit. We define winning as delivering consistent and sustainable balanced growth and valuecreation. We're making gradual but real progress in our efforts to achieve this goal butwe still have work to do.

The Company in FY 19-20 had revenue of Rs.4224.41 Lakhs and EBDITA of Rs. 1013.18Lakhs EPS of 6.42 with a market cap of Rs. 4313.34 Lakhs. The last quarter of the yearshowed inconsistent demand patterns due-to slow down in the economy given the onset ofCovidl9 panic. Next year we expect to continue our positive momentum with the ongoingchallenges and impact of Covidl9.

Delivering targets requires that we continue to drive even more focus on our strategicchoices to win with consumers. The choices we've made to establish and extend the growthof our brands; to drive productivity to fund investments for growth and enhance ourindustry-leading margins; to lead constructive disruption across the value chain; and tokeep our organization structure simple and increase accountability are making a positivedifference in our results.

Importantly these choices are not independent strategies. They reinforce and build oneach other and include a strong commitment to social and environmental Citizenship effortsbuilt into the business.

They position us well to deal with near-term challenges from macroeconomic headwindstrade transformation and anticipated competitive response. Together they are thefoundation for stronger balanced top- and bottomline growth and value creation over theshort mid- and long term.

That's our commitment to you our shareholders — sustainable market-growingvalue-creating growth achieved through superior brands and products that delight consumersand improve their lives. That's our Purpose and that's what the women and men of DeccanHealth Care are focused on every day.

We are upbeat about growing together with all our partners as this commercial modelgains momentum. My deep appreciation to all our shareholders for their continuedconfidence and support.
