Lypsa Gems Management Discussions


1. INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENTS:

Lypsa intends to become a fully integrated and profitable diamond company in the next few years. We intend to go down the value chain and become closer to the customer through retail diamond and jewelry sales and thereby increase profit margins. We intend to build a well-managed corporate organization with standard processes and controls, competent management and reduced dependency on the promoters to generate revenue – features that are quite unique to Indian diamond companies.

Lypsa is in the process of increasing production capacity at its new factory in Navsari, Gujarat. The company has acquired a Factory Building and Machineries at Chhapi, Gujarat to expand its manufacturing activities to produce small sized diamonds at affordable cost. This year will see substantial revenue from manufacturing activities. This is in line with our aim of generating maximum revenue from the manufacturing activities that allows higher value-addition than the trading activities. In house manufacturing reduces the variance in cutting standards and allows the steady production of a high quality standard product, which is valued higher by traders, jewelers and consumers. It also safeguards against the possibility of theft and malpractice, which are a common occurrence in outsourced diamond production.

2. OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS:

We begin the new financial year with hope and optimism with good opportunities available to the company to enhance the product mix, enter new markets and industry sectors both in the domestic as well as export markets. The challenges will be to curtail the impact of spiked metal prices on our profitability.

3. SEGMENT–WISE OR PRODUCT-WISE PERFORMANCE:

4. RISKS AND CONCERNS:

The framework defines the process for identification of risks, its assessment, mitigation measures, monitoring and reporting. While the Company, through its employees and Executive Management, continuously assess the identified Risks, the Audit Committee reviews the identified Risks and its mitigation measures annually.

5. INTERNAL CONTROL SYSTEMS AND THEIR ADEQUACY:

The Company has an Internal Control System, commensurate with the size, scale and complexity of its operations. The Company has an Internal Audit department with adequate experience and expertise in internal controls, operating system and procedures.
