The Profit for the year ended 31st March 2018 stood at Rs. 2.50 lakhs asagainst a loss of Rs. 61.45 lakhs for the previous year. The increase in Income fromOperations "coupled" with a reduction in Costs (compared to the Previous Year)contributed to the Company generating a Profit in the current year.

During the Financial Year 2017-18 the Company has adopted Indian Accounting Standards(IND AS) as notified by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs with effect from 01stApril 2017 with a transition date of 01st April 2016. The adoption of IND AShas been carried out in accordance with IND AS - 101 i.e. First time adoption of IndianAccounting Standards. IND AS - 101 required that all IND AS standards and interpretationsthat are issued and effective for the first IND 50AS financial statements for the yearended 31st March 2018 have been applied retrospectively and consistently forall financial years presented therein.
During the year under review your Company's revenue was generated from vessel repairs.
Since the operations of the Company are solely dependent on repair of vessels theCompany is greatly dependent on the fortunes of the Offshore and Shipping sector.Considering both these sectors have been going through difficult times with no recoveryexpected in the immediate future the Company too will face "trying" times inthe near future. Additionally there is growing competition from newly created repair"outfits" which have "mushroomed" as a result of loss of jobs in viewof the conditions in the industry.
Abysmally low charter rates and increased number of lay ups of Vessels have also had anadverse effect on the Company's ability to widen its Customer base and in turn improverevenues since most owners are being extremely conservative on repairs and maintenance asCharter rates prevalent do not cover the operating costs of the vessels in some cases.
The Company will continue to face difficult times. However all efforts to save oncosts and overheads continue and the same should help in negate the potential downsidethat the Company may face in the coming future. Dividend
