THE BEST YEAR
It is a matter of great privilege to present to you the Company''s
performance for 2010-11 - a year which has been the best in its history
in terms of profits and enhancing substantially shareholder''s funds and
satisfaction when the real estate industry was in a state of flux. We
experienced a great year in terms of total income, business growth in a
situation where India''s economic growth rate was lower than what had
been projected, as a sequel to the global financial performance.
INDIA VS. REST OF THE WORLD
After an agonising 2008 causing significant economic downturns in
global economies, 2009 began with regulatory intervention, bailouts,
stricter policies and norms for financial markets preventing it from
further damages. Year 2010 started with signs of recovery in global
markets pointing to a positive outlook and conditions in the financial
markets improved and stablised. Developing and emerging countries have
recovered relatively faster compared to the developed nations. India
backed by strong fundamentals and favourable policies, timely
intervention by the regulatory bodies in matters related to monetary
and credit measures could manage to come back to normal growth. Year
2011 started with improved economic sentiments, stable Central
Government, positive stock markets and siginificant FII inflows in
indian capital market and thus has brought back investors'' and people
confidence into all sectors lead by the real estate sector witnessed by
better liquidity and improved demand in the residential segment in Q1.
However, in Q2, unexpected events like earthquakes and tsunamis which
hit the Japanese economy, recent downgrading of US economy by Standards
and Poors from ''AAA'' to ''AA '', dangers in Euro zone have significantly
eroded investors''s confidence from global markets. Further, CWG and 2G
scams in India would impact India''s economic growth. Therefore, as a
strategy, the Company would also cautiously monitor changes in global
economies and India in particular and invest its shareholder’s surplus
cash into real estate and other segments.
SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENTS AT GLANCE

by issue of equity shares on preferential basis during September, 2010.
- The Company received Import Export license and diversified its
business opertions by foraying into Trading business segment.

achieve this accreditation, gaining recognition for its commitment to

construction and real estate housing solutions for our esteemed
customers. The ISO 9001:2008 registration verifies that Company’s
policies, practices and procedures are consistent and adhere to
globally accepted levels of quality services and management.
South Mumbai is home to some of the most expensive residential
addresses in India. With Mumbai being the financial hub of India, there
is overwhelming demand, though availability of land is very limited.
This makes new project development challenging in South Mumbai. The
Company has recently acquired approximately 10,000 sq.ft. of land in
Dadar, Mumbai under redevelopment scheme with total area to be
constructed i.e.(appx. 30,000 sq.ft.). Upon development, this land bank
has the potential to get monetised immediately and contribute one of
the strongest cash flows back into the company, increase significant
value to our shareholders funds and Company''s bottom line.
- The Company plans to venture into new business segments viz.
(I) ''Trading business'' under recently obtained import export license
(ii) ''Securities trading and financing business'' under Non-Banking
Financial Company (''NBFC'') license.
PRESENT OPERATIONS AND FUTURE PLANS
The Company has great presence in Boisar and is Boisar’s one of the
most renowned real estate construction company. The Construction
operations are running smoothly and on track as per the plans.
GREEN INITIATIVE : The Company is also taking the possible initiatives
to support the environment, which can be demonstrated by company''s
initiative to implement rain water harvesting in its new upcoming
residential buildings/projects and is also planning to optimise the use
of water through recycling and effective waste management techniques.
INNOVATIONS AND CUSTOMER FOCUS : The Company is aware of increasing
competition in its business and is continuously looking to add value to
its projects. A few possible innovations that people could see in
coming projects are elevators in 3-storey buildings, designing homes
adhering to vastu-shastra rules wherever possible, using bio-sanitizers
to improve quality of borewell water in addition to most of existing
modern world amenities.
I am confident this would strengthen the companies position in that
region and will certainly help in accomplishing its vision. With the
commitment, spirit and dedication of our team, we are confident of
realising our growth potentials and conveting them into realities.
