Your company is actively pursuing opportunities in the Solar Power Generation field as well as in the Infrastructure sector. However we could not penetrate into the solar power generation field so far due to several reasons such as low and not feasible rates. Further due to the then uncertain political scenario at the National level as well as the State bifurcation issue in Andhra Pradesh, there was a lull in both the fields. Your company is in the process of tying up Joint Ventures in the infrastructure development field.
Your company is in the process of divesting its LPG assets so that it would be able to mobilize the required capital for its new projects. Your company is hopeful that it would be in a position to raise the required capital in this financial year through the sale of the old LPG assets at Kakinda which are not being utilised.
As you are aware, your company is already debt free and thus in a better position to achieve its objectives once the above is accomplished.
It is the earnest endeavor of your Directors to turn the company around and make it profitable once again at the earliest.
