The company deals in major products i.e. FIBC & Technical textile/Geo Textile. The separation of two product businesses in 2 separate companies will result into unlocking of value of business & raising growth capital. The FY 2017-18 was a challenging year for the company. Though the FIBC business continued to operate at healthy margins and strong order-book position the main challenge came from the paralysis of the banking industry in India. Many of the consortium-bankers of the company faced the PCA issues. This resulted in curtailed working capital availability to the company. The curtailment of working capital led to reduction in geo-textile and other business. The stronger Indian rupee and fluctuating raw material prices further added to the problem.5.44% Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds (the FCCBs) of USD 25 Million issued to TPG Growth SF II Pte. Ltd.
