Hyderabad Lamps Ltd. (HYDLAMPS) - Director Report

Company director report

1994 HYDERABAD LAMPS LIMITED Directors Report Your Directors present the 11th Annual Report together with the audited accounts for the year ended 31st March, 1994. As already reported in the earlier years, several external factors like severe recession in the Lamp Industry,frequent civil disturbances and unhealthy competition over which the company had very little control together with other factors like closures of factory for some times, mainly due to constraints on working capital funds and labour unrest have resulted in almost a grinding halt to the regular operations during the year under review. Despite the closure, as mentioned above the full burden of fixed over-heads and financial costs including a provision of Rs. 180 lakhs towards doubtful debts and advances for the year had led to the loss. The steps initiated over the years for the recovery of stagnant debts other than those which were under legal dispute could not yield any satisfactory results to improve the liquidity particularly in the absence of committed and continued further supplies by the company. It was therefore considered prudent to reflect the active current asets more realistically. Accordingly reconciliation process of accounts receivable which remained pending over the years was completed during the year under review and consequential adjustments have been given effect to in the accounts. All the above have cumulatively contributed to the reflection of substantial operating loss during the year under review. Consequently, the modernisation and diversification plans and Rights Issue have been deferred.
