In last year 2017-18 Company has so many prestigious events done wherein our Companyconverted in to Public Limited Company from Private Limited Company and also got listed onNSE Emerge Platform. The listing has been very encouraging and we got huge response toour IPO and it was oversubscribed by around 4.32 times so there is a drastically growth.We once again thank all the subscribers and shareholders for this overwhelming success.
As all of you know that our country is going through transitional phase wherein so manytransformational changes like demonetization digitalization implementation of GST andother reforms have been undertaken by the Government in sequential manner. We are pleasedto inform you that Company has been able to successfully face the challenges appropriatelyand register respectable growth.
