During the year, the Company's activity focused on the sales, marketing and technical support of Cabot Corporation's Specialty Blacks, Masterbatch product lines for the Indian sub-continent market. The Company continued to import all product lines from overseas affiliates to service some key segments of the market. In addition to the aforementioned product lines, the Company consolidated activities associated with the sales, marketing and technical support of Cabot Corporation's Activated Carbon product line, a business Cabot acquired in August of 2012.

The country continues to maintain strong market segments that value high quality Carbon Black and Masterbatch products. These segments include IR inks and plastics. The recently consolidated Activated Carbon product line serves a variety of market segments, which include water & air purification, food & beverage and pharmaceuticals.

The Company expects competition in the market to remain intense with demand continuing to be strong in each of the market segments served. The addition of the Activated Carbon product line has diversified end application markets and provides the Company with a broader offering of high quality specialty chemical products.

The Company believes it will continue to build on its capabilities to best serve Customers in the India market providing the highest levels of service and differentiated specialty chemicals. This should position the Company to meet the challenges of the Indian market.
