OPERATIONS :

The Company has achieved turnover of Rs. 8211.56 Lakhs during the current financial year as against Rs. 10493.76 Lakhs during the previous year. The Company has achieved EBIDTA of Rs. 567.67 Lakhs during the year as against Rs. 773.17 Lakhs during the previous year. The Company has earned profit of Rs. 27.70 Lakhs during the year as compared to profit of Rs.1.49 Lakhs in the previous year. The operations of the Company impacted adversely in the current year due to COVID-19 pandemic.

The last four years were very challenging for the Company in view of the slowdown in Indian economy in general and negative growth in the capital goods industry in particular. During this period various powers and other green eld projects were either on hold or stuck due to various factors i.e.; environmental clearance, financial closure etc. and consequently as Key Component/ Material Suppliers, Original equipment manufacturers (OEMS), like our company, are saddled with inventory and low business prospects.

The Company is hopeful that fresh capital investment in the power, re ning and petro chemical sector will revive due to continuity of the Government at Center and is taking steps in that direction by more reforms including opening more sectors to FDI, raising FDI limit of various sectors and stabilization of GST. Your Company is well positioned as efforts made into product development over the past few years have made your company one of the few manufacturers in the country that are capable of producing tubes for the power generation industry.

The Company is hopeful that with the introduction of policy of Aatmanirbhar Bharat of Government of India, demand for the Companys product will get an impetus. Certain investment in the Gas and Oil sector coupled with investment in power sector, give hope for revival of S.S products.

The Government of India declared lockdown from third week of March, 2020 to contain spreading of Covid-19 pandemic in the country .Since then the lockdown has been extended by Central Govt., State govt. and local authorities considering the prevailing situation in the particular area. The operations of the Company were severally affected by way of interruption of production, unavailability of workforce and travel restrictions etc., After partial lifting of the restrictions, the Company started its operation gradually from third week of May, 2020 and increased the capacity based on availability of work force, raw material and availability of transport facilities. However, impact assessment of the pandemic is a continual process given the uncertainties associated with its nature, spread and duration.

There are no amounts proposed to reserves.
