Management Discussion and Analysis Report:

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.

Industry Overview

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 trading activities of textiles related products.

Business Overview

The Company main activities are trading into textiles related items. The Company is exploring various options to improve margins of the Company, by having tight control on expenses & exploring various business activities. Chinese products had flooded our markets which has impact on every Indian Companies, including us.

Despite various adverse factors we firmly believe that Indian economic will grow and hence the growth of textiles sector presents us with exciting opportunities like Indias long-term growth story remains intact notwithstanding declining growth in the past year or two. This presents vast opportunities for us to grow our businesses in the medium to long term, though short-term pain remains a possibility. We further believe the policy liberalization and forward-looking regulatory changes will help markets grow in size.

While positive Government policies and regulatory changes do enlarge the scope of opportunities for textiles sector companies, lack of or delay in reforms or certain regulatory changes can significantly impact the performance or make an existing business model unviable. The growth in the sector is very good and Management expects better results in for the coming year. The Company is targeting lower segment of the market, where the margins are low but there is huge market as Tier II & Tier III cities are more sensitive to prices, but they are also looking to various international brands.
