VISION ORGANICS LIMITED ANNUAL REPORT 2002-2003 DIRECTORS' REPORT To, The Members of VISION ORGANICS LIMITED Your Directors present herewith Ninth Annual Report together with Audited Annual Statements of Accounts for the year ended 31 03.2003. 1. FINANCIAL RESULTS During the year under review, the Company earned Turnover of Rs 24.60 lacs as against Rs.1094.56 lacs of previous year, whereas netloss after Interest. Depreciation and Tax reached to Rs. 3483.72 lacs as against Rs 607.27 lacs of previous year. In view of huge loss,the Company has not charged depreciation whereas no provision for Interest on Secured Loans obtained from Banks has been made as the quantum of Interest devolving on the Company. could not be entertained,due to suit filed against Banks. 2. DIVIDEND In view of loss,the Board regrets its inability to recommend payment of Dividend. 3. OPERATION IN RETROSPECT The Company which was otherwise a growing Company witnessed the year under review,as a year of full of despair and difficulties mainly due to illegal acts of Bankers. The Company has been penalised by its clientele groups by non payment of sales proceeds which were earlier realizable debtors,on the ground that the Company could not fulfill the supply/delivery schedules of confirmed orders committed by it,with these customers,at the time of undertaking expansion project. Due to serious and repeated,violations by the Banks of specific laws such as Banking secrecy laws,Negotiable Instrument Act u/s.31,Indian Contract Act u/s.73,Indian Contract Act u/s 38 by banks,for which company had already filed suits for damages in 2001 in the Court,Company was compelled to stop its productions. This obviously resulted into huge failure in Company's long-term supply commitments made in year 2000 to its prospective regular buyers. As a result these customers had to incur huge losses by buying these huge quantities at very high rates from spot markets,to fullfill their commitments & had to suffer partly,for heavy production,losses where they could not procure our replacements. Thus clearly due to violation of laws by bank,company could not fullfill huge supply commitments to its regular customers,hence Company had to suffer huge compensations and make necessary provisions to such suffered customers which is the main reason of losses. Company had already made corresponding damages claim in court against concerned banks as mentioned above. 4. FUTURE PROSPECTS The Company is required to make necessary application to the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction(BIFR) for its revival and rehabilitation under Section 15 of Sick Industrial Companies(Special Provisions) Act,1985 on complete erosion of its entire networth as at 31.03.2003 and necessary steps are being taken in this regard.

The Company has been selling its products to number of customers directly as well as through dealer net work. The flexible PVC sector is the largest consumer of plasticizers. Therefore the growth of plasticizer industry is directly dependent on the growth of the flexible PVC market. PVC itself enjoys the largest market share (28%) amongst all the commodity thermoplastics. The present demand of PVC is estimated to increase reasonably. b) Opportunities and Threats: Swot Analysis: Strengths: 1. Existence of adequate infrastructure and necessary scale of plant economy. 2. Professionally managed Company promoted by experienced promoters. 3. The Company has capacity to manufacture whole range of PVC plasticizers,which are used by seven different segments of Industries. Hence not dependent on any one market segment. 4. Strong network of dealers will ensure ready market for the Company's products. 5. Locational advantages like sales tax exemption for 15 years,100% income tax deduction U/s 801A for 5 years and lower power tariffs. Opportunities: By ensuring reasonable scale of economy and international quality standards, a market can be effectively tapped. Threats: The reduction in sales & incurring of operational losses as compared to previous year is due to Banks is violated specific laws compelling the Company to stop production which resulted into loss of sell and profits for which the Company has filed suits against concerned Banks,as mentioned above. 1.

This includes products segments such as wires and cables,calendered sheets,footwear etc. In view of such growth,it was expected that the plasticizer industry would experience on increase in demand especially phthalates,considering their wide spread usage both in general purpose as well as special applications. However in reality,illegal acts of the Banks has frustrated efforts of the Company. e) Risks and concerns: Any change in government policy,rules and regulations will have an adverse effect on the Company. f) Internal control systems and their adequacy: The System of internal control of the company is adequate keeping in mind the size and complexity of the Company's business.
