new epicentres of growth. Thus accomplishing what we had set to achieve
6 years back, And fulfilling the dream of a strong, valued and viable
MVL Limited- a dream envisaged by Anukool and shared by each of us.
2011- The year that was:
Beginning with the macro-economic developments, the year bygone saw the
world reeling under the threat of collapse of European Union, the
rising fiscal deficits of leading advanced economies as well as the
increasing prices of commodities and all. However, by and large,
business and consumer sentiments remained positive and there has been a
significant reduction in risk perception of the global economy
On the home front, India''s growth story remained positive in the longer
run despite volatile market situation and signs of decreasing GDP
growth rate. The country continues to remain one of the front runners
of economic growth across the world due to it bludgeoning middle class
and positive consumption pattern.
On micro economic level, the real estate industry faced its own share
or concerns, Cautious buyer sentiment prevailed all through 2011 due to
adverse impact or the prevailing macro- economic factors. At one hand
the industry saw rising home loan raies exert pressure on buyers, on
the other hand, developers had been constrained by the rising costs of
construction and debt.
Commercial and Retail sectors. however remained buoyant throughout
2011. Leasing activity in the office space realm remained healthy

On account of delay in securing statutory approvals., the company could
not launch many of its mainstream projects in 2011. This combined with
other factors- slowing economy, tightening liquidity, rising debt costs
and input costs has led to decline in top and bottom line in comparison
to the previous year. However these projects are scheduled to be
launched in the current year and would give major thrust to overall
performance of the company.
2012- The Journey Forward:
Though overall macro-economic conditions are likely to keep investor
sentiments at cautious levels, both In terms of FDIs and FIIS, however,
as the Indian economy continues to show reslience In 2012, foreign
investors will gain in confidence and India will become attractive
among competitive investment destinations.
The demand for commercial and retail space is expected to be stable
with rent and capital value expected to increase, albert marginally.
The residential sector is likely to continue seeing low absorption rate
and incidence of new launches will decline. However, projects nearing
completion or possession are likely to record healthy appreciation of
In the light of the above we believe that the commercial segment of the
company will continue to perform.
In the residential segment, MVL. Coral will see a new thrust to its
sale due to the expected capital appreciation on account of possession
being given to its existing customers. MVL IndiHomes the budget home
project by your company will also be nearing completion which will
boost its sale further.
2012 will also see your company foray into hospitality segment. Its
star project at Neemrana for which MVL 1s collaborating with an
internationally renowned hospitality brand will be launched in the
year. The project will establish your company as a valuable contributor
to the hospitality sector.
MVL Rivercity the premium township at Yamunanagar is also stated for
launch this year Targeted at the discerning customers of Yamunanagar
and surrounding towns, we believe that given the high per capita income
of the population and lack of modern lifestyles options in the region,
the project will add to both top and bottom line of the company.
Our dear shareholders, we believe that challenges and opportunities are
two sides of a coin for those armed with foresight, perseverance and
courage. Given your continuing support we are confident of achieving
