Company director report

1995 RAGHOJI CEMENT MANUFACTURING COMPANY LIMITED DIRECTORS' REPORT Your Directors have pleasure in presenting the twelveth Annual Report together with the Audited Balance Sheet as at 31st March 1995 and Auditors' Report thereon. Financial Results: Due to reasons beyond the control of the Management, regular commercial production could not commence during the year under report. However, Company's fortune has turned for the better, after sorting out the technical and financial problems. The Company has been able to commence commercial production at the beginning of the accounting year 1995-96, and the production is now stabilised. Accordingly the Company has capitalised the project expenses. The Company has taken steps to appoint Dealers and the Directors are hopeful to show better performance from now onwards. Capital Outlay: As against the Capital Outlay of Rs. 1084.25 lakhs envisaged in the prospectus the actual cost of the Project has gone upto Rs. 1500 lakhs on account of further delay in the implementation resulting in further accrual of interest dues to the Institutions/Bank. Increase in the Authorised Share Capital: Members at the previous Annual General Meeting have approved resolution to increase the Authorised Share Capital of the Company upto Rs. 10 Crores. However this resolution could not be implemented since the Company was preoccupied with technical problems in the operation of the Plant immediately thereafter. However now that the Plant operation is stabilised Company desires to bring this resolution once again before the Members for their consideration and approval. Directors recommend the resolution to be passed as an ordinary resolution. Increase in the Borrowing Powers: Members at the Extraordinary General Meeting held on 20th September 1986 have approved Borrowing by the Company upto a limit of Rs. 1000 lakhs.

Future Outlook: In the liberalised economy Directors feel that there is lot of scope for diversified expansion of economic activities in the Country and thus for Company's White Cement product.
