 Product-wise performance:
 Sugar: During the year under review, the Company has achieved a record
 high crushing of 22.69 lakh tonnes of cane as against 19.08 lakh tonnes
 of cane in the previous year. The increase in cane crushing is mainly
 due to increased availability of cane at Polur and Sankarapuram units
 on account of better monsoon in the previous year. The total sugar
 production was 20.52 Lakh Qtls as against 18.14 Lakh Qtls in the
 previous year. The total sugar sold was 16.15 lakh qtls as against
 18.62 Lakh qtls in the previous year. The reduction in the sales was
 mainly on account of the reduced free sugar allotment and lower volume
 of exports. During the year, the Company has exported 7.81 lakh Qtls of
 sugar as against 8.16 lakh Qtls of sugar in the previous year. The
 average realization for the year 2012-13 was higher at Rs.2950/Qtl as
 against Rs.2796/Qtl in the previous year.

 units as against 1728.51 lakh units in the previous year. The export to

 the previous year. The total value of the power exported to the grid
 has decreased to Rs.45.55 crores from Rs 48.49 crores in the previous
 year mainly on account of reduced tariff and marginal reduction in
 units exported.
 Industrial Alcohol: The production of industrial Alcohol was 220.07
 lakh litres as against 147.19 lakh litres in the previous year. The
 increase in the production was mainly on account of the distillery
 plant at Kalayanallur Unit III. The Company was able to sell the entire
 production of Alcohol and the sale was 208.52 lakh litre as against
 155.57 lakh litres in the previous year. Consequent to this, the

 Rs.38.06 crores in the previous year. The average realization was Rs.
 24.09/ litre as against Rs.24.42 /litre in the previous year. The price
 of alcohol has come down on account of import of alcohol by the IMFL
 units from the neighbouring states.
 Financial Performance:
 The total income for the year was Rs.580.37 crores as against Rs.615.97
 crores in the previous year.  The reduction in the income as compared
 to the previous year was mainly on account of the reduced free sugar
 allotment and lower volume of exports.  The Gross Operating Profit has
