The last few years have seen Nakoda reinforce the foundation of its
business. It has established strong operational capabilities. It gives
me great pleasure to share with you through this Annual Report, the
results and progress of the company during the past year.
The company performance has been encouraging in the Financial Year 2010
despite the challenges arising out of the global economic meltdown. We
have achieved a robust growth in financial results for the year ending
December 31, 2010. The sales for the year were Rs.1339 cr. and profit

has embarked on a journey of accelerated growth. With the intention of
doubling its business over the next 3-4 years, it has charted a
3-pronged business strategy.
