PERFORMANCE2011 -12 was very bad for the Textile Industry. Due to high fluctuation of Raw Material price, global economic recession, severe power cut problems, all the Spinning Mills have suffered a huge loss. We are already in critical position. Even the Conversion party could not supply raw material continuously and give remunerative rate for the conversion.The turnover for the year under review, only conversion charges and other income was Rs. 697.37 Lacs compared to the turnover of Rs.858.11 lacs for the year 2010-11 The Company's operations resulted in a net loss of Rs.139.95 Lacs in the year 2011 -12 compared to the net profit of Rs.51.17 lacs in the year 2010-11.Due to severe Power cut problem, we could not run the unit in full capacity. Because of the Power cut the production was reduced, consequently the conversion charges receipt also reduced.Due to non availability of adequate working capital finance, the Company could not have own production, and therefore the Company had to continue doing conversion works to the available extent to keep the Mill working.3. DIVIDENDDue to accumulated losses, your directors are unable to recommend any dividend for the year under review.4. FINANCIAL POSITIONThe Company continues to face critical financial position, due to accumulated loss and the non availability of sufficient working capital funds. The Company has been declared Sick Industrial Company by Hon'ble BIFR and rehabilitation process is in progress. The Rehabilitation scheme submitted by the Company to Hon'ble BIFR has not so far been cleared.5. MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF THE OPERATIONSThe management discussed and analyzed the operational results for 2011-2012 and critically studied the factors that affected production, sales and profit. The management was satisfied with the efforts taken by the Company in the situation prevailed during the year 2011 -12.6. FUTURE TRENDSNon-availability of raw materials at reasonable prices, remunerative prices for finished goods, stiff competition and uncertain power supply are haunting the Textile Industry. The Company could show improvement during this year if the situation changes favourably and the power supply position improves and also the Company is able to' get sufficient conversion works. However, finalisation of viable rehabilitation scheme by Hon'ble BIFR and availability of sufficient working capital will enable the company to commence own production with good prospects of profitable working results in the years to come.7.
