Prabhav Industries Ltd Management Discussions.
To avoid duplication between the Directors Report and the Management Discussion and Analysis Report for the year, we present below a composite summary of performance of the various business & functions of the Company.
The trend in slowdown in global growth continued during the year. India was the fastest growing large economy with a stable currency that performed better than the most emerging market currencies. If the industry players manage to restructure their operations as per the new realities, success will not be very hard to find now. India growth story remained reasonably positive due to stable domestic consumption, lower commodity & energy prices & hence improving macroeconomic parameters. However there are some negative factors like drought, rising Non-Performing Assets (NPA) of Banks & low credit growth. The Company is into business of development of commercial, residential and infrastructure projects. The new Government policies as well as, certain High Court rulings have made many infrastructure projects unviable and there is considerable delay as many restrictions have been imposed by the High Court. The infrastructure sector is badly hit because of regulatory, legal & financial hurdle.

The Company is exploring various options to improve margins of the Company, by having tight control on expenses & exploring various business activities. The Company has decided to take work on sub-contract basis, as the Capital & cost will be minimal& loss can also be eliminated because of any change in Government regulations. This will impact the profit margin, but at least the Company can sustain in the long run.
