In the Financial year 2010- 11 your Company has acquired 100% stake of M/s BriociaPharma (India) Limited from the funds available on the expectation that substantial fundswill be infused by way of Private Equity. This investment was necessary as the existingplants in Pimpri and Vadgaon were very old and additional capacities were required. Sincethe Company has entered into Joint Venture with M/s Interpro Healthcare of Republic ofSouth Africa it was necessary to have a modern facility complying with the regulationsapplicable in Republic of South Africa. The facility of M/s Briocia Pharma (India) Limitedhas substantial capacity and was also compliant with Modern WHO GMP guidelines.

The decision to acquire M/s Briocia Pharma (India) Ltd and other capital expenditureduring 2010-11 coupled with the as yet unsuccessful attempt to infuse substantial funds byway of private equity lead to a severe liquidity crunch and an acute shortage of workingcapital. Additionally the hostile economic environment prevented seeking any suitablealternatives that were before the Company in the form of liquidation of certain non-coreassets or obtaining liquidity from the financial markets. This lead to a prolonged periodof financial hardship to the Company with a cascading effect of slow recoveries fromdebtors drop in sales labour unrest disruption of manufacturing activities and theconsequent loss of key customers and unrelenting pressure from banks and creditors.

The cumulative effect of the inconsistent cash flows from operations and the inabilityto draw down the sanctioned limits from the bankers and over cautious investment climatein the capital markets lead to defaults and delays in honouring financial commitments. Asa result the bankers have classified the Company's accounts as a NPA during 2012 andfurther recalled their facilities initiated recovery proceedings by seeking legal actionthrough winding up petitions initiating DRT applications action under Section 138 of theN I Act and SARFAESI Act. Several creditors and workers have also taken legal action forrecovery against the Company.

The Bankers and Unsecured Creditors of the Company and its Subsidiary had initiatedproceedings before the Hon'ble Bombay High Court for winding up of the Company. Consequentto one of the customer who had offered to buy the Company's manufacturing unit at Baddiand which offer was informed to the Court in the aforesaid proceedings withdrawing hisoffer to buy the said property Honorable

Further the Court ordered the Company itsDirectors and Officers and Agents from creating any dispossession of any of the assets orproperties without leave of the Court except in the ordinary and usual course of itsbusiness.

Consequent to the Losses exceeding the Share Capital and Reserves the Company throughits application u/s 15 of SICA Act 1985 has sought registration before BIFR and protectionu/s 22 of SICA Act 1985. The application has been duly acknowledged vide No 1366 dated02.07.2014. Company has also briefly narrated therein its proposal to revive the operationand turn the negative Net Worth to positive.

Majority of the secured Lenders (Consortium of Banks) have pursuant to an auctionprocess assigned their dues in favour of an Asset Reconstruction Company (ARC). ARC ispresently leading the dialogue with the Company for a comprehensive settlement of the duesof the Consortium. Company is hopeful that the settlement as aforesaid would benefit itand coupled with other proposals under evaluation such as developing the properties asresidential/commercial complexes negotiations with strategies investors for infusion offunds to commence the operations etc. will go a long way in bringing about turn around inthe operations and to a large extent make the existing negative net worth become positive.The Company has included the same in the presentations that have been made before BIFR. Onthe Winding up petition field before Bombay High Court against the Company it has beenlegally advised that since reference has already been made to BIFR it has fair amount ofchance in succeeding.
