Chairman's Speech (Enkei Wheels (India)) Year : Mar '17

Dear Shareholders,

It gives me an immense pleasure to share with you an update on the overall performance of the Company. I feel grateful for your continuous support towards Enkei Wheels (India) Limited.


In the financial year, 2016-17 Enkei India made significant way towards the goal. The Indian government''s move to ban high value notes (demonetization) on November 8, 2016 slowed down the market. Consequently orders for 2W segment took hit to some extent in 3Q however were recovered immediately. On the other hand, 4W segment was blessed with the favorable Indian market situation and thus Enkei India went for maximum orders & production numbers. Overall we landed with the 2.27 million wheels including 2W & 4W during the year. As against last year, Enkei India posted 6% growth in terms of sales volume as well as sales value - and delivered profit of AP 2.2 (Profit before tax Achieve Profit 2.2%).

External Scenario

In case of 4W there are many new models being launched by our customers. It was a favorable market for the sale of sedan car & SUV car than ever. Since there was diversified car sale in domestic market, mounting rate of alloy wheel also went up which is the reason to boost the sales of 4W. For the first time in history, the automobile sale of Indian domestic market went beyond estimated number and achieved the sale of 3 million passenger cars (incl. UV & Van) which was up by 9.2% (3,046,727 Cars) and 2W segment witnessed the growth of 6.9% (17,589,511 Cars) in FY 2016-17.

Looking Forward

Since 1st April 2017 there is a change in environmental standard (BS3 to BS4, BS=Bharat Stage) however it is expected that Enkei India''s orders will not be much affected. Enkei India is looking forward for new orders & has set production target as 10% Higher Output in the year to come. Enkei India, with orders & production along with maximum efforts, has set target over & above last year i.e profit of AP5.
