4. STATE OF AFFAIRS AND FUTURE OUTLOOK OF THE COMPANY:

For over three decades, SHHIL has been a purpose driven organisation. Our vision is to be one of the most dynamic hospitality company in India. We strive to create value through operating best-in-class hospitality brand, inspired by our legacy and driven by a determination to create memorable experiences and lasting impact. Our strategy is driven by this purpose and it remains an unwavering promise to all stakeholders. Our unique culture and our peoples commitment, enables us to pursue our purpose towards creating value for the organisation by providing our guests superior experiences. We hold a deep appreciation for the contribution of every stakeholder and deliver value to them. Over the past few years, we have demonstrated our commitment to a clearly articulated strategy of diversifying our revenue profile.

After the merger of Shri Shakti Resorts & Hotels Ltd which is an existing operational company with our company, the overall revenues and growth have been considerably increasing for the past two years as could be seen from the financial performance above. A major achievement is getting the land lease for our hotel at Begumpet Airport renewed for another 30 years with effect from 1st Jan, 2023, after herculean efforts. Consequent to this notable development, our company is taking up a substantial renovation of our hotel property at Hyderabad. Three mock up room and suites are being done now and that will be followed by floor wise renovation ensuring at the same time that the hotel will continue to be operational. Your company is also planning to add more rooms as the need is felt to considerably increase the room inventory in view of the very healthy occupancy levels witnessed in the Financial Year 22-23.

In view of the unrelenting and persistent efforts put in by to your companys Chairman & Managing Director in achieving the renewal of the above land lease renewal for 30 years, it is proposed to allot Sweat Equity to him. Mr. Manohar who was the original allottee of the above land from Airports Authority through a public tender transferred that land to Shri Shakti Resorts & Hotels Ltd without taking any consideration whatsoever and implemented the project and successfully running the hotel and related businesses. Shri Shakti Resorts & Hotels Ltd is merged with our Company viz., Sri Havisha Hospitality and Infrastructure Ltd as per NCLT Order dated 16th Nov, 2021. The lease expired on 19th Nov, 2019 and Mr. Manohar has put in herculean efforts starting from 2017 itself for the renewal of the lease. The lease deed to this effect is signed between Airports Authority of India and Sri Havisha Hospitality and Infrastructure Limited represented by Mr. D. V. Manohar on 27th July, 2023.

It is an irrefutable fact that the business growth and future prospects of your company are substantially enhanced consequent to the above.

Further Mr. Manohar is instrumental in turning around your Company from accumulated losses of about Rs 100 crores to the present profitable position. When Govt. of India couldnt implement its commitment to remove subsidy on LPG over 3 years, entire private LPG Industry was badly affected. In such situation, Mr. Manohar cleared Bank loans of about Rs 106 Crores under One Time Settlement and made your Company debt - free in FY 2007-08. Thereafter he ensured your Companys survival all these years despite nil revenues. After the merger with Shri Shakti Resorts & Hotels Ltd, your Company is now turned profitable.

Therefore it is proposed that Mr. Manohar shall be adequately compensated for his efforts as above through issue and allotment of 45500000 Sweat Equity Shares of Rs. 2 each fully paid up for his Non-cash consideration and value addition to the company.

Hence, your directors are confident that these plans achieve better results in coming years. The endeavour of your directors is to maximize the returns to shareholders and we reiterate our commitment to achieve this in the near future.

5. DIVIDEND:

In view of the accumulated losses and the need to conserve available funds for the renovation and operations of the Company, your Company has considered it prudent to not to propose dividend for the financial year ended March 31, 2023.
