Chairman's Speech

From the Desk of Chairman

Dear Fellow Shareholders,

It is with great delight and a sense of profound satisfaction that I present the 98th Annual Report of your company. IWP was established in the year 1919 and that we are reaching towards our journey of 100 years in next year. At this juncture, I place on record my deep gratitude to all the shareholders for such a long association and making your company a leading Katha manufacturer in India. I immensely value your trust and we would endeavour to live up to your faith.

The global economy is growing at its fastest pace post 2010. The world economy is expected to strengthen further in 2018 and 2019, with economic growth projected to rise to about 4%, from 3.7% in 2017. Indian economy has maintained strong growth in FY 2018 - the Gross Domestic Product growth was 6.7%, with a strong 7.7% increase in the last quarter of the year. With the ''One Nation, One Tax'' GST regime being implemented, and gradually stabilising by the second half of the year, the economy witnessed upsurge in investments, consumption, as well as government spending.

At IWP, we have again delivered outstanding performances on both financial and operational front. During the last year, the IWP team has produced outstanding results. I take this opportunity to share with you the Company''s performance this year along with some key business highlights as under:

We''re proud of our accomplishments, but we want to do far more. We are not merely trying to continue to be a leading manufacturer of Katha in India. We want to setup new industry benchmark through our Research and Development (R&D) initiatives. Towards this end, we have started the commercial production of from gambler through solvent extraction at PT Sumatra Resources International, at Pangklan, West Sumatra Indonesia, a unit owned by our joint venture company namely Agro and Spice Pte. Ltd., Singapore. 100% production from this plant will be imported and consumed by our Company for manufacturing of better quality Katha.

Further, we are also going to set up a New Katha manufacturing unit at Jammu & Kashmir. SIDCO (A J&K Govt. Undertaking) has allotted 35 Canals of land in the State of Jammu & Kashmir in Sambha District for setting up the manufacturing plant. We are in the process of getting regulatory clearance for our proposed plant. In the coming years, we will be focusing on expanding our R&D and manufacturing capacity.

We are also diversifying our business in processing of different spices. A feasibility study for the same has been completed and we are in the process of launching of the spices under our brand name '' IWP''.

As a corporate citizen, we strive to conduct our business in a manner that is sustainable and inclusive. We work to protect the planet and respond to important social issues. We are committed to a clean environment, thus, always ensured best of measures are implanted for environmental safety across all our operational units.
