 little better than the previous year. It was able to arrest the loss to
 some extent. As reported earlier the units at Bangalore were closed
 during the previous year. The unit at Kolkata viz. J. J. Spectrum Silk

 in the previous year. The loss before tax and extra-ordinary item was
 down at Rs.565.10 lacs as compared to Rs.1911.80 lacs during the
 previous year.

 current year does not look any different than the one during the year
 under review. Taking this into account, your directors have decided

 from the core business of the Company, which includes export of linen
 and polyester fabrics, which would not require additional
 infrastructure but shall add to the top line of the company.
 In order to improve the working of the Company and generate more
 business your directors have decided to strengthen the design
 department, which shall be for the existing core business of silk along
 with linen and polyester fabrics. It has also been decided to actively
 participate in more trade fairs and revive contacts with our old
 customers. Your directors have also decided to control expenditure
 wherever possible. With all these measures your directors are hopeful
 of improvement in the current year.

 approached its bankers for settlement of their dues. The Federal Bank

 required to be paid in terms of their sanction letter has also been
 made by the Company. However, the Company has approached IDBI Bank for
 extension of the dates for payment of balance amount of settlement.

 level and accordingly the Company has revised its offer for the OTS.

 authorities of the Bank.
