REVIEW OF OPERATIONS
The performance of the Spinning unit was affected by the steep declinein prices of yarn in the second and third quarters of the nancial year 2017-18 consequentto unwinding of inventory post introduction of Goods & Service Tax (GST) effectivefrom 1st July 2017. The performance of Windmill units continued to be satisfactory duringthe year as TANGEDCO was able to evacuate the wind energy generated with minimum back outwhich helped the Company to reduce its dependence on outside power and also contributed tothe Pro ts of the Company.
During the year under review the spinning unit produced 7202.19 tonnes(7233.11 tonnes) of yarn of which 461.80 tonnes (2270.67 tonnes) was used to produceknitted fabrics. The unit sold 6548.66 tonnes (5165.12 tonnes) of yarn and 580.30 tonnes(2327.79 tonnes) of knitted fabrics out of which exports accounted for 662.66 tonnes(1223.97 tonnes). Further during the year under review the Company sold 2073.44 tonnes(2275.08 tonnes) of waste cotton of which exports accounted for 693.12 tonnes (245.16tonnes).
The Wind Mills with aggregate installed capacity of 10.65 MWgenerated192.30 lakh units (192.52 lakh units) of Wind Electricity during the year. Theentire power generated by the wind mills were utilized for captive consumption at thetextile mill.
The overall sales turnover of the Company aggregated to Rs. 17094.35Lakhs (Rs.16899.84 Lakhs) of which exports including Merchant exports amounted toRs.1477.41 Lakhs (Rs. 2592.75 Lakhs) the exports contributing 8.64% of the overall salesof the Company.
The performance of the Spinning Unit in terms of pro tability wasaffected by steep decline in prices of yarn due to supply/demand mismatch in the secondhalf of the year. However the signi cant improvement in Wind Electricity generated forcaptive use helped the Company to achieve improved Pro ts during the year under review.
PROSPECTS FOR THE CURRENT YEAR
The demand for Cotton yarn in both domestic and export markets hasstarted improving and is expected to remain stable in the current year. Though there hasbeen an increase in prices of Cotton and other overheads the yarn prices are also likelyto stay rm due to the expected increase in demand for yarn. Hence the performance of theSpinning unit is set to improve in the current year as compared to the previous year2017-18. The contribution from Windmills is dependent on availability of Wind of adequatevelocity and its evacuation by TANGEDCO.
