Dividend:

In order to balance the growth and developmental activities of the company as well as to fulfill the aspirations of the public stakeholders, the promoters decided to continue their support and again in writing waived their entitlement on the profit distribution in the form of dividend if any declared by the company for the year 2017-18. Accordingly the Board after considering all these aspects has recommended a dividend for the year under review at the rate of Rs.0.20 per Equity Share only on the portion of the paid up equity capital held by the public as on the record date as may be announced by the board in this regard. However no amount has been transferred to General reserve from the profits for the year 2017-18.

Operations:

The company in spite of difficult economic conditions has registered substantial improvement in the overall performance during the year under review in comparison to previous year. The company has achieved an increase of around 20% in the sales figures and a substantial increase of around 32% in the net profits before tax in comparison to previous year. During the year the Retail division has made satisfactory progress in terms of growth in the sales and also brought down the operational losses in comparison to the previous year. However the outlook of the Retail business is promising as the economic and market conditions is poised to stage significant growth in the current year. Overall the business sentiment was partially affected due to various factors particularly the implementation of GST from July 2017 since it is a new legislation and needs time to settle down with the procedures. Global economic conditions are also still remaining weak due to the factors like protectionist measures followed in different part of the world. The company had anticipated all these factors and taken all the necessary steps in advance to maintain the competitive position in the market. But in spite of these, the company had to absorb some amount of the losses generated by the Retail business activities. Further since the company is mainly catering to the domestic market and it has a strong presence in the domestic market, there is no negative slide in the sales growth. However for the improvement of retail division the company is taking all possible measures particularly giving major thrust in the development of product ranges in the licentiate segments like YouWeCan and FC Barcelona as well as in the development of the marketing network in other formats.

The company has formulated various measures to strengthen the operations of the Retail division to make it a more competitive business. The company is focusing more on the Large Format Stores (LFS) and on line sales network. Further the efforts are underway to add more licentiate brand under the licentiate product segment. This will eventually help the Retail Division to improve their margins substantially. Finally during the year the company has discharged all its obligations under EPCG License issued to the company in the past and accordingly successfully redeemed all the pending EPCG Licenses.

Issue of Fully Convertible Debentures:

During the year the company in order to promote the brand of the company and its subsidiaries through advertisement in print and non-print media in a major way, had entered into an agreement with M/s. H.T. Media Ltd a big media group known as Hindustan Times group. The company has also executed Subscription agreement and Media agreement with M/s. H.T. Media Ltd. Accordingly the company has issued three numbers of Fully Convertible Debentures of Rs.1.50 crores each aggregating to Rs.4.50 crores to the M/s.

H.T. Media Limited. Necessary approval was obtained from the shareholders in their Extra Ordinary General Meeting held on 6th March 2018. The company completed the allotment on 20th.March 2018 and the BSE Ltd has issued “In Principle approval” for the same.

Amendment to the Articles of Association:

In order to issue Fully Convertible Debentures to M/s. H.T. Media Limited or any other securities in the future, the company has made necessary modification in the Articles of Association of the company. The modification was not a major one as the present clause 14(2) specifically mentions only “shares” instead of “Securities” which has a wider meaning and not restricted to shares only. Hence the same is suitably modified to include all other types of securities.

Export Sales:

During the year under review there was no exports sales reported by the company as the textile export market remained sluggish and the realizations were not attractive because of continued economic slowdown in almost all parts of the world. Apart from this, the unhealthy competition among the leading textile goods manufacturing countries continued to haunt the prospects for a healthy textile market and created a negative impact on the price segment of the textile items. Because of these factors, the company continued to remain focused maximum in the domestic market. However the company continued its efforts to draw the attention of
fabric buyers from Bangladesh and other neighboring countries. The company is anticipating a breakthrough in its efforts to explore the possibility of developing new markets in African and Far East countries. However ultimately the positive changes in the global economic conditions particularly in the US and European economies can only pave the way for the growth of the global textile market. The company is making best efforts to establish its identity with various reputed buyers to align with their brands in the overseas market to promote the exports in large volume.

In spite of the unfavorable trend in the global textile market, the company continues to take active participation in various international Fairs/exhibitions. Once the stability is brought in the global market, India can look forward to have a better market share than its competitors. Hence the company always looks forward to have better exports sales in terms of better unit value realization and volume. Besides this, the company has the capacity to make wide and better range of products particularly in printed and embroidery varieties and this will certainly help the company in the long run to increase the exports business both in volume and value.

Licentiate Rights:

The company has at present licentiate rights with FC Barcelona and Manchester City. The company has developed and produced wide range of garments under licentiate rights and the response from the market is very encouraging. These brand LOGOS are embossed on the garments under licentiate rights acquired for India. The company is now a recognized name in this particular segment of garments. Based on the past experience and also taking into account the strengths and weakness of these business models, the company proposes as a well thought strategy to add more such licentiate arrangements. This will ensure that there are always some effective brands under its umbrella throughout the period to ensure that even if some brands crosses its shell life, there are other brands to take the sales business forward without affecting the growth momentum of the company. Further the association with “YouWeCan” backed by celebrity cricketer Mr. Yuvraj Singh is also growing very well and various products developed during the last few months will certainly give a big boost to the company in the sales. The company is anticipating a good outcome from this venture in the next few years. The company is also developing other models on similar lines to promote the sales with better value addition.

Joint Venture:

The company has entered into a joint venture with another company M/s. Project Anushka Sharma Lifestyles Pvt. Ltd. a company promoted by celebrity actor Mrs. Anushka Sharma and her family. The object of the joint venture is to design, develop and manufacture of various ladies fashion and western type outfits which will be sold through various large retail format stores and on line stores. The company is incorporated on 19th.September 2017 as a private limited company in the name of M/s. SAA & Suditi Retail Pvt. Ltd and the ownership of the company is on 50:50 partnerships where both the promoters contributed equally to the capital. The company commenced its sales business activities after the launch of its products on October 2017. The company has nominated two members on the board of the Joint venture Company and equal number of members is nominated by other company also. The company has achieved net sales of around Rs.3 crores with net loss from the business of Rs.34 lakhs. The financial results are

only for the part of the year operations and since the company is backed by celebrity actor, the company is not anticipating any difficulty in achieving the projected growth for the year 2018-19. Expansion:

As indicated in the earlier years the management the company has not undertaken any new major capital projects during the year under review. Further, there is no major expansion plan in the current year except some addition of balancing equipment’s and replacement of old machineries and equipment’s. Similarly for the Retail division also the company plans for some expansion and the same will be managed without any additional investment of capital nature.

Human Resources & Industrial Relations:

Human resources development plays a crucial role in the development of any organization. It consists of attraction, retention and development of talent in a systematic manner to fulfill the requirements of the organization. The company follows various programs to provide focused people attention. The emphasis is mainly on the promotion of talent internally through job rotation and job enlargement. The Industrial relations with the employees at the Company’s plant at MIDC, TTC Industrial Area, Pawne Village; Navi Mumbai and in the other locations continue to remain healthy and cordial.

Share capital:

The shareholders had approved the special resolution to raise the Authorized capital from Rs.18 crores to Rs.25 crores. Accordingly the company has completed the compliance process and the authorized capital of the company stands today at Rs.25 crores. Further during the current year, the company has issued 218790 shares to employees under SUDITI ESOP PLAN 2011 in the month of April 2018 and accordingly the subscribed, issued and paid-up capital has increased from Rs.16.67 Crores to Rs.16.98 Crores. Apart from this, during the year under review, the company has also issued Fully Convertible Debentures which will be converted into equity shares at a later date.

Suditi Employee Stock option Plan 2011 (Suditi ESOP 2011):

The company had made the first grant of options to the employees in the year 2013 under the Suditi Employee Stock Option Plan 2011. Apart from this, the company has further granted additional 13000 no. of options in the year February 2017.

To facilitate the employees to exercise their right to buy the options granted to them, the Company had earlier divided the total options granted on certain prescribed basis over a period of 5 years.
