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 18th day of May 2019has recommended a final dividend of ? 0.50 (Fifty Paisa) (@ 5%) per equity share of theface value of ? 10/- each fully paid up for the financial year ended 31st March 2019subject to the approval of the Members at the ensuing 25th Annual General Meeting. TheFinal dividend is payable to those Shareholders whose names appear in the Register ofMembers as on the Book Closure / Record Date.
If the dividend as recommended by board of directors is approved by the Shareholdersthen total outflow of Dividend amount will be ? 7465666/- excluding dividenddistribution tax on the dividend.
Company has two main business segments i.e. MDF and laminates. In FY18-19 MDFcontributed 46% of Company's revenue and laminates contributed 53% of revenue. During theyear new capacities were added in Thin and Thick MDF Industry which ultimately result inaggressive price cuts. The price cut was largely driven by incremental capacities comingon 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.
The price war in the MDF Segment might be short term till the market absorbed thecapacity addition over the next 1 or 2 years.
Our new MDF Board production plant will come in operation in the South India (AndhraPradesh) with additional capacity of 800 CBM per day in the next year. This is expected tosubstitute imports in a big way due to logistical savings and a depreciating INR. It isalso expected to take position of plywood because there is very big gap betweenutilisation of plywood and MDF Board.
During the year Company has issued and allotted 213872 Equity Shares on preferentialallotment basis at two different occasions. The detail of allotment made is as under:
|Date of Allotment ||28.04.2018 ||19.07.2018 |
|No. of shares allotted ||190372 ||23500 |
|Issued Price per Share (Rs) ||945.00 ||865.00 |
|Total amount ||? 17.99 Crores ||? 2.03 Crores |
On allotment of these new 213872 equity shares now the paid up share capital is ?149313320.00 divided into 14931332 equity shares ofRs 10 each.
India Ratings and Research Private Limited (India Ratings) has downgraded Company'sLong-Term Issuer Rating to IND BBB? from IND A-'. The Outlook is Negative.
Some of the Reasons which considered by credit rating agency for downgraded creditratings are as follow:
1. Any significant time and/or cost overruns in the ongoing project;
2. Delay or inability to make funding arrangements and/or raw material supply tie-upfor the ongoing capex;
3. Lower-than-expected EBITDA margins leading to the net leverage remaining over 3.5xon a sustained basis;
4. Continuous oversupply of MDF in the industry.
