Director’s Report

The Members of PHOTON CAPITAL ADVISORS LIMITED The Directors are pleased to present the 29th Annual Report together with Audited Accounts of the Company for the year ended 31st March, 2014. FINANCIAL RESULTS (Rs. in Lakhs) Standalone Consolidated PARTICULARS 2013-14 2012-13 2013-14 Income from operations 169.23 20.40 169.23 Other Income 16.50 78.88 19.12 Expenditure 363.64 1,170.03 365.83 Profit/(loss) before tax (181.04) (1,074.26) (180.68) Provision for tax (50.60) (340.57) (50.43) Profit/(loss) after tax (130.44) (733.69) (130.24) REVIEW OF OPERATIONS The major event that affected equity markets this year was the Indian election. A few months prior to the election the market dropped precipitously. As soon as indications started appearing that a more right-leaning government had a good chance of winning the election, the markets began a rally. This volatile environment led us to believe that there were very few trading opportunities. So we mostly abstained from trading. However, we are always considering and evaluating trading opportunities that might develop. SUBSIDARIES: During the year, the Company has acquired an equity interest of 49.5% on 27th March 2014 in Soven Management Associates Private Limited (Soven). Since one of the Directors of the Company can control the composition of Board of Directors of Soven, the equity interest so held has been consolidated as per the applicable Accounting Standards. Your Board of Directors has reviewed the affairs of the Subsidiary Company and included the audited consolidated financial statements for the financial year 2013-14 in this Annual Report as required under Section 212 of the Companies Act 1956 read with Circular No. 2/2011 dated February 8, 2011.The Statement pursuant to Section 212 of the Companies Act, 1956, highlighting the summary of the financial performance of our subsidiaries is annexed to this report. MANAGMENT DSICUSSION AND ANALYSIS: Industry Structure and developments: There have been no substantial changes in the NBFC industry as a whole. Opportunities and threats: The new government at the centre appears to be more business friendly but it is not clear what policies it is likely to follow. Until policies are more clearly articulated by the government it is difficult to analyze the opportunities and threats in this market. However, old issues such as a persistently high level of inflation, high deficits and slow down of the economy continue to remain issues. However, the dramatic decline in the Indian rupee against the dollar will create some opportunities. We are particularly hopeful that infrastructure development in India will pick up. This can create dramatic equity investment and trading opportunities. Outlook: The exact policy direction of this government is not clear. Therefore it is difficult to ascertain the outlook. However, it appears to be broadly more investment and business friendly than the former. So our hope is that the economy will see a revival. But given that there has been very little policy communication from this government, we cannot speak with certainty about the outlook. Risks and concerns: Your Company has continued to minimize risks from external factors and has constantly preferred and adopted methods and systems in its economic activities with low element of risk. In the current and future years, your company will further strengthen and bolster its efforts to minimize or negate all risk factors. However, external factors of foreign currencies and impact of global slowdown, currency corrections of other large growing economies do cause concern to all enterprises and your company does consider this as a concern. Nevertheless, such factors will be dealt with caution and adequate foresight.
