Bangalore G Eswara Rao September 01, 2011 CHAIRMAN AND MANAGING DIRECTOR MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS Industry Structure and Developments: The Company's core business is production of steel and metallurgical products. Post economic melt down, there has been an improvement in prices for the Company's products. The consumption of High Carbon Ferro Chrome (HCFC) is directly proportional to the consumption of stainless steel. The global stainless steel market which is estimated at 20 million Tonnes is expected to grow at a steady pace of 10% p.a. which will throw open vast opportunities HDFC manufacturers. Opportunities and Threats: A continuous demand for stainless steel in the international market is expected to throw significant opportunities to this business. How ever expansion of projects by existing players who are having both mines and power plants may lead to some negative impact, similarly, the existing monopolistic pricing is always considered a threat to this industry in addition to frequent changes in power tariff. Divisionwise Performance: There are two divisions in the Company i.e. Rolling mill division and Ferro Alloys division. , The performance of each division for the Financial Year 2010-11 is as following: a. Rolling Division - Installed Capacity - 108000 MT Actual Prod - 14 MT b. Ferro Division - Installed Capacity - 48000 MT Actual Prod - 42577 MT Out Look: As pointed out, the future looks very promising and the company expects to do much better. Risks and Concerns The price volatility of both raw material and finished goods coupled with competition is a major risk and concern. Financial Results: The Company registered a turnover of Rs. 27015 lacs for the year ended March 31,2011 (previous year Rs.23205 lacs) with a net loss of Rs. 814 lacs (previous year net loss 1269 lacs). The Company's performance due to the continuation of economic slow down up to the first half of the year and also stoppage of production at its rolling mill. Human Resources / Industrial Relations : Your Company continued its good record of industrial relations with its employees / workers. Your Company has dedicated man power at all levels.
