INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENT:
The Chemical industry as such is not looking good. The scope for development has come down drastically. The Company has sold off all fixed assets during the year. However, it does not affect its status as a going concern as the Company continues to look for various other opportunities.
OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS:
The Company has decided to concentrate on feasible opportunities available in the market by exploring the possibilities which would aid profit making thereby yielding good potentials for future growth.
SEGMENT-WISE OR PRODUCT WISE PERFORMANCE:
The Company has not been able to strike a balance between demand and supply. The Company is looking to diversify into various other opportunities.
The Company is considering a change in the existing management to aid in exploring the opportunities. Continuous losses have substantially wiped off the value represented by the Capital, reserves and surplus and accordingly the financial statements do not reflect the correct picture of the health of the Company.
For ensuring that the financial statements of the Company reflect the real picture and the Capital, reserves and surpluses which are lost are not continued to be shown on the face of balance sheet, it was necessary to undertake a financial restructuring by way of reduction of capital of the Company.
The reduction of capital will enable the Company to have a rational capital structure which is commensurate with its remaining business and assets.
The financial restructuring will help the Company to reflect better its operational efficiency, improvements in the future years and reflect the true shareholder value. Further, there would be a positive impact on the various key financial ratios such as Net Profit Margin, Return on Capital Employed, and Return on Net worth etc.
RISK AND CONCERN:
The Company has formulated a policy and process for risk Management. The Company has set up a core group of leadership team, which identifies, assesses the risks and the trends, exposure and potential impact analysis at different level and lays down the procedure for minimization of risks. Risk Management forms an integral part of Management policy and is an ongoing process integrated with the operations.
Company has identified various strategic, operational and financial risks which may impact Company adversely. However management believes that the mitigation plans for identified risks are in place and may not threaten the existence of the Company.
INTERNAL CONTROL SYSTEM AND THEIR ADEQUACY:
For the purposes of effective internal financial control, the Company has adopted various policies and procedures for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of its business, including adherence to company s policies, the safeguarding of its assets, the prevention and detection of frauds and errors, the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, and the timely preparation of reliable financial information.
