CHAIRMAN'S COMMUNIQUE FAST-TRACKING OUR PROGRESS

Dear Shareholders

I am proud that our Company has navigated the tough times with great resilienceensuring the health and safety of both our co-workers and families. This determined effortfrom all has set us on a journey towards achieving our future goals.

Our performance too has been significant. Whereas volumes grew by 17% our revenuesgrew by 67% reflecting a focus on value addition. EBITDA @26% & PAT @37% alsorepresented healthy growth.

Exports continue to experience a positive groundswell with our presence in Europeanmarkets going up. We launched our new brand identity which is modern and also reflects ourorganisation's future-facing approach. The shift is significant given that more than 35%of our portfolio today comprises performance and specialty chemical applications. Our newbrand identity and nomenclature is in alignment with this business evolution.

To enable us to continue on this path our innovation centres in India and Belgium areunwaveringly working towards new product development post-treatment fundamental researchand feedstock engineering related initiatives in the specialty chemicals space.

Environment Social and Governance (ESG) priorities are at the core of our operations.We have published our sustainability report to capture the concrete steps we are takingtowards our commitment to our wider universe of stakeholders. The environment is a keyfocus area for us and we are unfailingly particular about it in addition to GHG energyand water conservation and waste management.

We are navigating through difficult times. The pandemic may have subsided but alurking threat remains. In addition the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine iscausing market disruptions especially as it relates to higher fuel prices leading toinflation.

In India our greenfield expansion in Chennai is making steady progress which will addan additional 147000 metric tonne to our overall capacity. Despite the executionchallenges faced owing to external factors we expect to commission the plant by Q3FY22-23.

Additionally we have also embarked upon a brownfield expansion in Mundra Gujaratwith specific focus on production of specialty chemicals.

In a bid to reward our shareholders an interim dividend of '188.73 crores ('10/- perEquity Share on the face value of Rs 2/- per share) was declared on January 20 2022 andpaid during the quarter ended March 31 2022.

I want to thank all PCBLites and other stakeholders for their continued support inachieving our targets for the year gone by.

We believe we are at the cusp of an exciting journey which is expected to create valuefor all of us.

Yours sincerely
Dr Sanjiv Goenka Chairman
