Risk and concerns
Operating margin remains susceptible to fluctuations in the prices of key input i.e. polymer, which move in tandem with crude oil prices. Also, we are subjected to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations which could have impact on results of operations. However, this is hedged by executing forward contracts, thereby mitigating forex rate fluctuation risk.
The industry is fragmented because of low entry barrier as capital and technology requirements are limited, gestation period is small and raw materials are easily available. This restricts substantial scale up in operations and exerts pricing pressure. Also, this industry being highly labour intensive the retention of workers has been high priority for the Company. Attrition of workers may affect the production and also involves cost and time in inducting and training of new appointees. Several other global as well as Indian economic and political factors that are beyond our control may affect the business of the Company.
Internal control system
The internal control system has been found to be adequate. This is reviewed periodically by the Audit Committee and statutory auditors of the Company.
