REVIEW OF OPERATIONS:
Your Directors are pleased to inform the Members that the Company has
earned Net Loss of Rs. 20,49,27,000/- as against Net Profit of Rs.
30,80,59,461/- for the corresponding previous year. Your Directors are
further hopeful to continue this increasing trend in coming future.
In view of the requirement of funds for any future expansion of
business operations of the Company, your Board of Directors think fit
not to recommend any dividend for the year ending 31st March, 2014.
In consonance with the provisions of the newly enacted Companies Act,
2013 and taking into consideration the composition of the Board of
Directors, Dr. Kannan Vishwanath retires by rotation and being eligible
offers himself for reappointment at the forthcoming Annual General
The Companies Act, 2013 (the Act) provides for appointment of
independent directors. Sub-section (10) of Section 149 of the Companies
Act, 2013 (effective from April 1, 2014) provides that independent
directors shall hold office for a term of up to five consecutive years
on the Board of a company; and shall be eligible for re-appointment on
passing of ordinary resolution by the shareholders of the company.
Sub-section (1) states that no independent director shall be eligible
for more than two consecutive terms of five years. Sub-section (13)
states that the provisions of retirement by rotation as defined in
sub-sections (6) and (7) of Section 152 of the Act shall not apply to
such independent directors.
The non-executive independent directors were appointed as directors
liable to retire by rotation under the provisions of the erstwhile
Companies Act, 1956. The Board of Directors has been advised that non
executive (independent) directors so appointed would continue to serve
the term that was ascertained at the time of appointment as per the
resolution pursuant to which they were appointed. Therefore, it stands
to reason that only those non-executive (independent) directors who
will complete their present term at the ensuing AGM of the Company in
September 2014, being eligible and seeking re-appointment, be
considered by the shareholders for re-appointment for the first term of
upto five consecutive years upto March 31, 2019.
Non-executive (independent) directors who do not complete their term at
the ensuing AGM, will continue to hold office till the expiry of their
term (based on retirement period calculation) and thereafter would be
eligible for re-appointment for a fixed term in accordance with the
Companies Act, 2013.
Based on the above, Dr. Ullooppee Badade was appointed as an
Independent Director of the Company for a term of five consecutive
years effective from April 1, 2014 upto March 31, 2019.
