Management Comment 

Commenting on the Companys performance for FY20, Mr. Tarak Patel, and Managing Director said We are pleased to announce robust performance in the fiscal year despite external challenges imposed by the coronavirus outbreak. We have been relatively insulated from the current disruption as our order backlog continues to remain strong and we expect to recover the loss of production in the coming quarters. We expect increased activity in the pharma and chemical sectors resulting in an increased demand for our product and services.

Covid 19 Outlook 

Covid?19 began impacting normal business Operations of the company on 14th March 2020 by affecting its supply chain and its ability to ship ready equipment to its customers, its production eventually shut down completely on March 23rd, 2020. As a result, it lost sizable revenue due to disruption leading to lower profits for the quarter. Further, the company has discharged its disbursement obligations in full on payroll including contractual, casual and workmen and paid to its creditors though collections from customers was a bit slow during the period. 

The company started the year with a strong unexecuted order book which is higher as compared to previous year. During the lockdown period it secured sizeable orders which further strengthens its order book position. Its production facilities have resumed operation and supply chain is gradually returning to normal. Even though the company has lost 20 days of production in April 2020, which in turn will affect its Q1FY2021 revenues and profitability, it is confident that it can recoup the shortfall in subsequent quarters. 

Other developments 

The Board of directors recommended dividend of Rs 2 Per equity share of face value of Rs 2 each, which is subject to approval by shareholders of the company.
