C) MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS
1) Industry Trends and Developments
You are aware that infrastructure companies in the last two years took a beating due tothe global economic slowdown. Even FY11 did not give good news for the sector with delaysin land acquisition, project clearances, high interest rates, swings in currency rates andslower project execution. Despite these in long run the infrastructure industry is goingto witness a good growth on back of growing infrastructure activities. The concept ofengineering, procurement & construction (EPC) has been gaining importance in Indiasince the last decade as the companies prefer awarding contracts to specialized companieshaving complete experience of handling such projects. It has got a very good potentialconsidering the size and complexity of projects being set up in India in the industrieslike oil & gas, power, steel, fertilizers, cement etc. India is set to see a massiveinfrastructure capex cycle over the next decade as the existing infrastructure fails tosupport India's population. The infrastructure companies will benefit hugely from thiscapex cycle.

The outlook is encouraging and your Company can look forward to continuous improvementin its performance in the coming year/s.
The sectors in which Petron Engineering Construction Limited is active is oil &gas, power, cement and metallurgical industries.
Out of these, the power seems to be a promising sector in the year 2011-12. India hasachieved the highest ever capacity addition in the power sector at a record 15.795 MWduring 2010-11. The number of power plants will increase in the years to come with StateGovernments such as Gujarat. Maharashtra, Orissa and so on inviting private players toinvest in the power sector. Coal based power will remain the dominant source for energy inIndia. The next five years should ramp up the markets even with a slew of high endinvestments and high end IPOs.
According to the Mid-term appraisal by the Planning Commission (2010) the resourcecrunch in the availability of indigenous coal will be much more intense in the twelfthplan when the projected gap between demand and supply is likely to go up by 200 MT. Hence,acquiring coal mines in other countries has become common practice to de-risk the rawmaterial supply for coal based power plant s which are the dominant source of energy inIndia.
Since there is no credible answer to the chronic energy shortfall, there would be athrust in Nuclear energy albeit with increased safety features. Your company is activelyconsidering entering into this segment in near future.
There are major fertilizer projects being implemented in India in next few years. Yourcompany sees this as opportunity to undertake EPC and construction jobs in this revivingsector which witnessed sluggishness for nearly one and half decade.
Another important sector that will continue to witness some growth is the oil and gassector. With major refinery at such as Paradip being at an advanced stage of constructionand other at Bina and Bathinda already in place , there would be lesser activity in thissector in 2011-12. Still some old refineries would implement projects forrevamp/modernization with which it is possible to get some good business out of thissector.
The fabrication industry for oil and gas, petrochemicals and fertilizers Industry wouldwitness a good inflow of enquiries. Your company is having a very good manufacturingworkshop near Vadodara to take care of this industry.
Cement industry has witnessed a change in the mode of execution of cement plants fromconventional equipment wise ordering to executing on EPC basis. Currently the installedcement production capacity in India is 300 MTPA and there is always a good demand forcement and consequently there is a scope for putting up new cement plants.
Beside Indian cement companies who are implementing cement expansion projects, thereare a number of foreign companies active in India who is also implementing new cementplant of around 7000 TPD capacity at several places in India including grinding units.Given the rapid pace of infrastructure development in India, cement will continue to be anattractive segment for your company and it is planning to participate with a bigger rolein the EPC mode.
Your Company is into engineering, fabrication, erection, installation of plant,machinery & equipment for a number of business sectors in oil 8< gas.petrochemicals, power, steel, cement, minerals & metals, chemical & fertilizersetc. This spread both in reach and business sectors substantially derisk your Company fromeconomic volatility.
Oil accounts for 31% of India's total energy consumption and there is unlikely to beany significant scaling down of dependence on these fuels in the next 5-10 years. India isaccounting for about 10.8% of Asia Pacific regional oil demand by 2010. while providing10.2% of supply. Currently, of the six core industries identified in India, the oil &gas sector has propelled the growth of Indian economy most and the Government is lookingfor more investors in the sector. India is currently world's fifth biggest energy consumerand the need is continuously growing.
The Indian petrochemical capacity growth rate - which has been 3-4% over the past fiveyears - is expected to increase four times and range between 12%-15% in the next 5-7years. India's petrochemical industry is worth about US$40 billion which is 3% of the GDP.Further the approved proposals for setting up Petroleum. Chemicals and PetrochemicalsInvestment Region (PCPIR) in Andhra Pradesh. South Gujarat & West Bengal is likely toattract over Rs.485,000 crores investment over the next few years.
As the Indian economy continues to surge ahead, its power sector has been expandingconcurrently to support the growth rate. The demand for power is growing exponentially andthe scope for the growth of this sector is immense. India is currently the 5th largestproducer in 2010 and recorded a growth of 11.3% as compared to 2009.
With new global acquisitions by Indian steel giants, setting up of new state-of-the-artsteel mills, modernisation of existing plants, improving energy efficiency, backwardintegration into global raw material sources and nearly 222 memorandums of understandings(MoUs) signed between the investors & Governments for planned capacity of around 276MT, India is now on the centre of the global steel map. Consumption of steel in theengineering industries, construction sector, industrial applications, fertlisers andtransport sectors has been on the rise.
The Indian Fertilizer Industry is one of the allied sectors of the agricultural sphere.India has emerged as the third largest producer of nitrogenous fertilizers. The adoptionof back to back Five Year plans has paved the way for self sufficiency in the productionof food grains. The Government of India has been taking steps which inter alia includeintroduction of National Mineral Policy (NMP) & New Pricing Scheme (NPS) to supportthe fertilizer sector.
India is the second largest cement producer in the world, with an installed capacity ofabout 236 million tonnes (MT) in FY10. The sector is expected to add an additionalcapacity of 92.3 MT in FY13. Cement & gypsum products have received cumulative foreigndirect investment (FDI) of US$2,315.58 million between April 2000 and January 2011,according to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP). The Ministry ofRoad Transport and Highways has planned to invest US$354 billion in road infrastructure by2012. Housing, infrastructure projects and the nascent trend of concrete roads wouldcontinue to accelerate the consumption of cement. Our Finance Minister Mr. PranabMukherjee has proposed to earmark US$47 billion for infrastructure development duringFY12.
6) RISKS & CHALLENGES
India's construction companies face challenges of operating in an unorganized sector.Unpredictable market conditions, major swings in the materials prices and fluctuations incurrency rates have resulted in cut-throat competition and decline in profit margins.Also, as the EPC projects are getting more complex, awarding projects is getting delayed.With the emerging trend of shorter project durations, indeterminate specifications andrising client expectations; an organized coordination is required between the contractors,consultants and the vendors. Some owners even prefer breaking a large project into moremanageable and defined pieces to reduce costs. A well-defined EPC contract is the one ofthe best ways to address the above concerns and to reduce the cost & time overruns inreal time. EPC industry is already a multi billion-dollar industry and contractors arefinding more innovative ways to mitigate these risks.
7) INTERNAL CONTROLS
Your Company has a proper and adequate system of internal controls to ensure the timelyand accurate recording of financial transactions and adherence to applicable accountingstandards; optimum utilization & safety of assets; compliance with applicable laws,regulations, listing agreements and management policies; and an effective managementinformation system.
