Gwalior Strips Ltd. (GWALIORSTRIPS) - Director Report

Company director report

1994 GWALIOR STRIPS LIMITED DIRECTORS' REPORT Your Directors have pleasure in presenting their Tenth Annual Report and the Audited Statement of Accounts for the year ended 31st March 1994. AUDITORS REPORT The comments in the Auditors Report with the notes to Accounts in schedule 18 are self explanatory. OPERATION During the current year despite strenuous efforts, the Company could not achieve the targetted production mainly on account of the following reasons: 1. The Company could not get required working capital funds for its operation for a major part of the year; and 2. There was disruption in the flow of job work orders to the Company owing to disturbed condition in the country. However, despite the above stated problems the company had achieved a level of production of 1235 MT and sale of 1257 MT as compared to last year production of 1897 MT and sale of 2107 MT. During the previous year, the members had approved a proposal for the infusion of promoters' equity to meet the shortfall in the working capital funds. This proposal could not be implemented owing to delay in the approval of the High Court to the merger of Spring Steel Limited with Gwalior Strips Limited. In the scheme approved by the members proposing merger of Spring Steel Limited with your Cornpany there was a clause barring change in the capital structure before the merger was completed. This matter would therefore, be pursued at an appropriate time. It is hoped that your Company could proceed with the issue during the current year. The draft scheme for the rehabilitation of your Company had been approved by the BIFR at its meeting held on 11.07.1994 and the same had been published in the newspapers for the information and objection, if any, of all the concerned parties. Your Board is hopeful that the Company will receive the support of Bank and Financial Institutions for the implementation of the rehabilitation scheme. MERGER As there had been difficulties in fulfilling the conditions of merger scheme envisaged in the merger order of the Madhya Pradesh High Court, Gwalior, the proposal of the merger of Spring Steel Limited with Gwalior Strips Limited had been since dropped. The efforts are being made for infusion of promoters' equity to meet the shortfall in the working capital funds. DIRECTORS Shri Vinod Gupta and Shri J.P.
