The operational performance and future outlook of the business has been reviewed by the management based on current resources and future development of the Company.

Economic Overview:

The operation of the company during majority of the year was mainly centered in Textiles Industry, Finance Business and Share Trading. The company was dealing in Lending, Advancing and Depositing Money in Industrial and other Undertakings and Businesses and to deal in acquiring, selling, subscribing, transferring, holding, disposing, and otherwise dealing and investing in shares, securities, movables, etc.

The wheels of change continued to roll in the country with the launch of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and the Real Estate Development and Regulation Act (RERA).While the GST would be a long-term positive for the economy, it had its initial implementation issues and the overall economy bore the brunt of the changes with traders and Medium and Small Scale Enterprises (MSME) getting adversely affected.

The Indian economy posted a growth of 6.6% in FY2017-18 compared to 7.1% in FY2016-17, as the first round of effects of demonetization and the implementation of GST played out. However, a host of other policies, implemented during and before FY 2017-18 such as the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, reforms in the real estate sector in the form of RERA, allowing of FDI in various industries, fast-tracking of project clearances, various measures for financial inclusion, etc. - are expected to propel growth upwards, going forward. While the IMF projects that Indias GDP will increase at 7.4% in FY 2019 and 7.8% in FY2020, the World Bank expects growth to reach 7.3% in FY2019 and rise further to 7.5% in FY 2020

The Indian textiles industry is among the oldest in the country. It is projected to reach USD 230 billion by 2020 from around USD 120 billion. Currently, the domestic textiles industry contributes 10% to the manufacturing output of the country, generates about 4% to its GDP and employs more than 45 million people. Importantly, the sector contributes 15% to the export earnings of India. Mitigating the repercussions of currency fluctuation remains a challenge. Exports have been a core feature of Indias textile sector. The Indian textiles export market, estimated at $18 billion, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% compared to the global CAGR of 3% over 2016-26.

The textile Industry, in general, had a negative impact due to the after effects of structural transformation that took place in the form of implementation of demonetization and GST. Further, post GST, import duty has come down sharply, thus making imports cheaper for the domestic industry which has placed pressure on selling prices for the textile industry as a whole. Consumers preference to go in for e-commerce / on-line sales and reduction in export benefits have reduced margins, thus hindering the promotion of exports.

Segment-wise Performance

The Company operates in two reportable segments i.e. Commodity Business and Finance & Share Trading Activities. The Business Segments has been identified as separate segment in accordance with Accounting Standard 17 ‘Segment Reporting.

Chinas slow investment in textiles and shift to high tech industries will have a positive impact on Indian exports in the coming years.

In todays complex business environment, almost every business decision requires executives and managers to balance risk and reward. Effective risk management is therefore critical to an organizations success.

Opportunities and Threats:

Unfavorable events in the Indian economy can affect consumer sentiments and in turn impact consumer decision to purchase financial products. Competition from a broad range of financial service providers, unstable political environment, changes in government policies/ regulatory framework could impact the companys operations.

Further, USAs withdrawal from Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and chances of termination of North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between USA Canada Mexico for free trade will increase their cost due to application of import duties amongst their countries. Consequently, Indian industry should have opportunity to promote its own exports. The international brands who have multiple sources to cover fabrics and convert into garments for retailing in India at better prices will make it difficult for Indian textile industry to compete with them apart from e-commerce / online business and cheaper imports.
