Company director report

TINNA OVERSEAS LIMITED Annual Report 1997-98 DIRECTORS' REPORT To, The Members Your Directors present the Eleventh Annual Report and audited accounts for the financial year ended 31st March, 1998. REVIEW OF OPERATIONS During the year under review, the Company could achieve a level of total income to the tune of Rs.1573.64 lacs and incurred a net loss of Rs.305.90 lacs. This has been attributed mainly due to the continued recession in TPR exports which adversely affected the manufacturing, export turnover and profitability of the Company, sluggish international market for commodities leading to depletion in commodity export and forced sales of substantial stock in the domestic market under depressed market conditions, high incidence of financial charges resulted due to prolonged delays in realisations of TPR compounds export receivables. The Company has however, been able to steadily improve upon its performance under export of footwear & is expected to do better in the current financial year. In view of the continued recession in market for TPR compounds & little chances of revival in the near future, the Company has suspended the TPR compounds manufacturing operations at its Mumbai units. The Company has also recently developed a Bitumen Modifier trade named "TBN-Super' which substantially improves the vital properties of Bitumen and in turn quality and life of roads, as evidenced by laboratory reports of the Central Road Research Institute (CRRI), New Delhi Highways Research Station, Chennai & Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. The product is being test launched & its commercial production is expected to commence by the end of the current financial year. The launch of this product is expected to more than offset the depletion in Company's performance resulting out of suspension of TPR Compounds manufacturing operations. The new product line would also enable the Company to make use of the existing plant & machinery & other infrastructure of the TPR manufacturing facilities at Mumbai.
