 The sales at Rs. 2732 million for the year ended 31 December 2012
 registered a 2 % growth over the sales of Rs. 2668 million for the
 previous year ended 31 December 2011. However, in terms of sales
 quantity, the tonnage sold during the year ended 31 December 2012
 marginally decreased by 0.15% over the previous year.
 Cost of inputs continued to rise substantially during the year under
 review, putting the Company''s contribution margins under severe
 pressure, as a consequence. The main reasons for this increase were as
 a) Increase in procurement rates of raw material;
 b) Weakening of the Indian Rupee during the year by 11 % making the
 Company''s imports dearer; and
 c) Huge increases in procurement rates of electricity, fuel and natural
 The Company continued making efforts during the year to reduce the
 aggregate impact of such increases through the use of innovation, R&D &
 procurement which were moderately successful. However, owing to a
 contraction of demand for its products arising as a consequence of the
 economic and manufacturing slowdown last year, the Company was not able
 to increase its selling prices during the year, to neutralize the
 adverse impact on its input costs.
 The sales volumes were maintained at the same level during the year
 under review. The Company was able to report a marginal increase in
 both Profit Before Tax and Profit After Tax.
 The Directors are pleased to recommend a normal dividend of Rs. 4.50 per
 equity share and a special dividend of Rs. 87.50 per equity share, of
 Rs.10/- each, for the year ended 31 December 2012.
