Industry Structure And Developments:

Your Company is engaged in Electrical Industry which is into voltage stabilizers under the brand "UNISTAB" and the products are having its different broad range.

The industry has seen growing trend in requirements in last few years with continued capacity expansions/newer investments in the user industries and the force placed by the Government on the sector and the increasing participation of private sector in electricity generation. The demand for the Companys products continues to improve considerably. The margins however, are low due to rising input costs and intense competition. We are however trying to reduce the impact by improving operational efficiencies. The actual performance may however differ as it is dependent on several factors beyond control of the Company.

In the coming year, your Company will continue to explore opportunities in Electrical Industry across the country, will further develop and grow its current Electrical Business, explore portfolio management services and deploy surplus funds in various other avenues. Your Company always looks for opportunities to exploit any advantages the market would offer to improve the shareholders wealth.

Opportunities and Threats

Opportunities

Threats: the change in customer requirements, customer preferences, and the vendor landscape of the overall market.

The GDP is projected at 7.2 % for the current year but the Governments finances might be under severe stress due to fall in GST collections, a downward trend in Direct tax collections, slackness in FDI inflows and lack of investment in infrastructure due to funds constraint. The Government has projected huge investments but the availability of resources is not clear. It remains to be seen if the Government would be able to reach its targets depending on which the spur in the Economy might happen.

Future Outlook

The thrust placed on the power sector and the improved demand from the user industries, bodes well for us. The margins may however be lower due to increasing raw material costs and intense competition.

COVID Effect in the Business:

The World Health Organization declared a global pandemic of the Novel Coronavirus disease (COVID- 19) on February 11th, 2020. In enforcing social distancing to contain the spread of the disease, our offices and client offices all over the world have been operating with minimal or no staff for extended periods of time.

To effectively respond to and manage our operations through this crisis, the Company triggered its business continuity management program. In keeping with its employee-safety first approach, the Company quickly instituted measures to trace all employees and be assured of their well-being. Our teams reacted with speed and efficiency, and quickly leveraged technology to shift the workforce to an entirely new ‘work-from-home model. Proactive preparations were done in our work locations during this transition to ensure our offices and training centers were safe. Approximately 93% of the production workforce were enabled in a rapid manner to work remotely and securely, thus ensuring that client commitments were not materially compromised.

Policy changes related to working from home and IT infrastructure support were rolled out overnight to help our employees shift to this new work paradigm. Continuous communication on the latest updates played a key role in enabling our employees to stay on top of the evolving situation. Several initiatives were rolled out to make teams and managers effective while working from different locations. The Company would implement a phased and safe return-to-work plan as and when lockdown restrictions are relaxed.
