Being with your company for the past twenty years I would first like to place mysincerest regards with those who have traveled this journey along with the Company, andhave sailed along during the troughs and highs. As a human passes through various cyclesof aging, so does a Company, the past few years though have not been very fruitful but thecompany has done its best to fight the turbulent situations. The environment with the everchanging interest conditions, the highs and further highs of inflation and with the entireeconomy hit by the financial crisis, the environment can be termed as turbulent. The otherfactors such as the power shortage suffocating the Companies especially in Tamil Nadualong with the labour shortage has impinged on the Companys bottom line. The ReserveBank of India raised its repo rate for the tenth time since March 2010 and said it willpersist with its battle against inflation,even as growth slows in Asiasthird-largest economy.

It is believed that the strongestof flames and hardest of hits makes the best of swords.
