Management Discussion and Analysis

a) Economy review:

The long-term growth perspective of the Indian economy is changing due to continuedinvestments in infra in Transmission and Distribution railways and metro’s lightingand digital initiatives Stable policies and good initiatives like smart cities. YourCompany (through its Subsidiary) is in the business of manufacturing electrical test andmeasurement equipments a power sector which has continued to be affected by the political& economic significant situation. We were hoping to see a gradual recovery but thefirst quarter of 2021 saw an unprecedented outbreak of second wave of COVID-19 pandemicwhich again caused disruption of economies around the world and dampened the already bleakeconomic prospects. It has proved to be one of the most damaging events of human historyand believed to have deep and cascading impact across the entire economic chain.

b) Business and Industrial review and future outlook:

The Company mainly operated on Metal Recovery Plant and produces Low Ferro Manganese(Slag) through its slag recovery process. However the re-useable waste of fine particlesremaining in the manganese slag which places at the factory site is depleting and it isuncertain how much slag is left. The technical consultants are also of the same view.

The management of the Company has foreseen this & thus entered another segment ofbusiness couple of years earlier via a majority stake in "The Motwane ManufacturingCompany Private Limited" (MMCPL) now a subsidiary company and is looking to developits business in electrical sector. The company is also looking at other businessopportunities including monetizing its assets and redeployment of the same in betterbusiness opportunities.

During the year MMCPL has entered into share purchase agreement dated 10th March 2021with the promoters of Telemetrics Equipments Private Limited to acquire 100% Stake by wayof purchase of shares of all the shareholders of the said company. In terms of theagreement 50% shares have been acquired on 12th March and balance shares will be acquiredwithin 11 months from the date of the agreement. Telemetrics Equipments Private Limited isinto manufacturing of underground cable fault equipments.

c) Risks Concerns & Threats and Impact of Covid – 19 on business:

Our Registered Office at Mumbai and Factory at Nagpur were closed intermittently duringthe year as the national restrictions in the country. The outbreak of COVID -19 pandemicand the consequent announcement of series of lockdowns and other restrictions by thegovernment have affected the financial performance of the Company due to which the totalrevenue of the

Company will have an impact.

Further the lockdown has had an adverse impact on the business of our subsidiarycompany "The Motwane Manufacturing Company Private Limited". The factory of thecompany had to be kept closed for a substantial period of time. As present the factory isfunctioning in accordance with the local & national business operating rules.

Although the lockdown has been lifted to a certain extent but the Company continues toprovide the "Work from Home" facility to its employees so as to avoid the riskassociated with the said pandemic.

The Company has taken all necessary steps to adhere to the guideline for socialdistancing with various directives issued by the Central/State Government and has putsafety measures which include: – Sanitization of Premises Enforcing wearing of masksand Hand sanitizer at entry point etc. Thus any employees who need to come to officethey have to follow all the rules and regulations. The company is providing transportfacilities and employees have to follow social distancing at all times.

Due to the unpredictable nature of the situation it is very early & difficult toassess the actual future impact of COVID-19 with reasonable certainty. With the opening ofdomestic markets post lockdown we expect business to improve gradually in the comingmonths.

Further depletion of slag dumps posed a major problem for the Company. In order tocounter this the Company entered into another business through its subsidiary company andis looking to develop it. The Management of the Company meets frequently to take the stockof all the impending and immediate threats to the business and takes necessary steps forpositioning of the Company to meet the same in time.
