“We have achieved substantial positive movement in MIS domestic business. Significant growth is back on track. The company is successfully implementing projects and also was able to secure prestigious project from Himachal Government of Rs.975 mn in the quarter. Food business out of India grew rapidly on the back of strong domestic demand for pulp.

We continue to improve overall receivable levels towards our goal of optimum working capital cycle. Increased inventory at peak level right now is function of seasonality in food business. Overseas Subsidiaries business has also shown strong growth with positive PAT number. We expect to further improve our working in remainder of FY15.

We are taking steps to improve margins so as to create long term sustainable competitive advantage. Positive developments in external environment including improved monsoon is expected to generate much stronger 2nd half for the company. We believe “More Crop per Drop”TM will become even more relevant for Indian Agriculture and around the world as we move forward. We thank all stakeholders for their constant support in last 2 years in which we went through turmoil brought upon by change in our business model and general weakness in external environment.”
