RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND THE STATE OF COMPANY''S AFFAIRS

The year under review continued to be challenging one for your Company. It was informed in the previous year that the Company underwent through debt restructuring process with its lenders under JLF Mechanism. However, due to various factors coupled with the economic slowdown of the country and more so in the Power Sector and delay on procedural parts with the lenders, the restructuring package could not be implemented as envisaged. For the long term solutions it was felt necessary to work out a mechanism to address the infusion of fund and sustainable debt in to the system. For infusion of funds, the Company has identified a prospective investor who has shared the terms sheet which is based on the sustainable debt. The same is being shared with the lenders and it is under their considerations. Based on the development and the future scenario, the lenders have decided to adopt the strategic debt restructuring mechanism which the Company believes that the same will protect the interest of the esteemed investors and stakeholders. The Company is also working on various alternatives to come out from the situation.

As explained above that the market scenario along with the high interest cost has led to another year of loss. This is primarily due to delay in completion of the supply commitment, denial of price variation claims and the provisions of debtors which are under recovery for quite some time. This is to further inform that our total income for the financial year 2015-16 on a standalone basis decreased to INR 2,05,229.89 Lacs from INR 2,37,952.80 Lacs in the previous year and the loss suffered is Rs. 32,452.58 Lacs Compared to past years loss Rs. 1 1,574.28 Lacs.

FOR AUDIT QUALIFICATION(S) WHERE THE IMPACT IS NOT QUANTIFIED BY THE AUDITOR

(i| Management''s estimation on the impact of audit qualification:

Management would like to inform that entire sales, purchase and consumption during the F.Y. 15-16 have been accounted for and hence there is no financial impact on the standalone financial statements. However, we are in process to have all the data of item wise production, sales and consumption and listing of purchase order of capital goods in our ERP system in near future to have all the desired information available as per the requirement of the Companies Act, 2013.

(ii| If management is unable to estimate the impact, reasons for the same:

The Company does not have adequate details of cost of each assets, its significant component and capital work in progress capitalized during the year and in earlier years. As a result of which, the Company is unable to calculate the correct depreciation and hence the management is unable to estimate the impact on the profit for the year, reserves at the year end and the value of the net assets carried forward in the standalone financial statements. The Company is in process of updating its fixed assets register having all the required details to calculate the impact of depreciation which will be adjusted in the books of accounts on completion.

The Company has noted the Auditor''s observations with respect to internal control over financials reporting. The Company has taken the cognition of the control aspect and is in the process of evaluating suitable measures to be adopted to implement the internal control system wherever it is lacking and needs improvement for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of its business, including adherence to Company''s policies, the safeguarding of its assets, the prevention and detection of frauds and errors, the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, and the timely preparation of reliable financial information, as required under the Companies Act, 2013.
