Nakoda Ltd Management Discussions.
B. Management Discussion And Analysis Report
(1) This section shall include discussion on the following matters within the limits set by the listed entitys competitive position:
1. Industry structure and developments:
The Textile industry is of significant importance to the Indian economy. Manmade Fibers contribute to major share of global fiber basket along with share of cotton declining steadily. The shift is even more prevalent with the intensifying issues of cotton shortage and price volatility coupled with decrease in crude oil prices being main feed stock for petroleum products like polyesters etc.
As in the past both demand and supply is expected to grow steadily.
2. Opportunities and Threats:
Polyester has overtaken cotton as the dominant fiber, but the cost and availability still plays major role in inter fiber substitution. Declining crude oil prices will significantly help polyester industry to grow at faster rate in near future.
Textiles, which is the countrys second largest employment generating sector after agriculture has been hit hard since the global economic slowdown It is : also facing problems of risk in raw material prices and high cost of credit.
3. Segment-wise or product-wise performance:
Company operates in two identical Segments are (1) Manufacturing (2) Trading. The performance is expected to improve and he Capital Employed has not identified with any of reportable segments, as assets used in the companys business and liabilities contracted are used interchangeable between segments.
Polyester filament fabric owing to its low-cost, versatility of characteristics, durability and wrinkle -resistance as well as very low per-capita consumption holds outstanding potential in India. However increase in the installed capacity may lead to price instability and pressure on profit margins. While the medium to long term projections for the industry is widely expected to be growth oriented, your companys operations have suffered adversely during the year under review due to problems narrated in the Directors Report. Your directors are making efforts to reduce the cost raw materials by using recycled materials in place of virgin materials to improve capacity utilization.
5. Risks and concerns:
The company like any other business concern is subject business risks arising from interest rate fluctuations, raw material price fluctuations and global economic condition. Decline in crude oil prices resulting in reduction in key raw materials like PTA and MEG put pressure on margins of recycled materials and also results in slow down of demand. However this phase is considered temporary and in long run it will lead to increase in demand.
6. Internal control systems and their adequacy:
