TRANSFER TO RESERVES
The Board of Directors of your company has decided not to transfer any amount to theReserves for the year under review.
The Board of Directors of your company in its meeting held on 30th day of July 2020has recommended a final dividend of Rs 0.50 (Fifty Paisa) (@ 5%) per equity share of
the face value of Rs 10/- each fully paid up for the financial year ended 31st March2020 subject to the approval of the Members at the ensuing 26th Annual General Meeting.The Final dividend is payable to those Shareholders whose names appear in the Register ofMembers as on the Book Closure / Record Date.
Company has two main business segments i.e. MDF and laminates. In FY 2019-20 MDFcontributed 49.78% of Company's revenue and laminates contributed 48.68% of revenue.During the year new capacities were added in Thin and Thick MDF Industry which ultimatelyresult in aggressive price cuts. The price cut was largely driven by incrementalcapacities coming on ground mainly in North and South India.
This very badly impacted to the industry volumes as the dealers were anticipatingfurther price cut by other Companies thereby maintaining thin inventories in the business.
It was ultimately triggered to lower realisations and significant margin pressure inthe MDF segment.
Our new MDF Board production plant will come in operation in the South India (AndhraPradesh) with additional capacity of 800 CBM per day. This is expected to substituteimports in a big way due to logistical savings and a depreciating INR. It is also expectedto take position of plywood because there is very big gap between utilisation of plywoodand MDF Board.
GLOBAL PANDEMIC - COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented global recession with adverseconsequences on unemployment and poverty. Rolling lockdowns and social distancingrestrictions on account of the pandemic are expected to significantly impact economicactivity in all major markets and cause demand compression.

Despite the threat posed by COVID-19 pandemic the Company apprehends to retain acompetitive position in the market by leveraging its brand image and quality products.Further based on the latest report of UNCTAD it is expected that the course correction ofeconomic recovery in India will be smoother and faster than that of many other advancecountries.
