The Managing Director, Mr. Paritosh Agarwal, Suryalakshmi Cotton Mills Ltd.
commenting on the performance said, “We are extremely pleased with our performance. The profit for this quarter has been marginal due to the steep increase in power tariff apart from overhead expenses incurred in the commencement of our 25-MW captive power plant at our denim division at Ramtek near Nagpur. We expect the next quarter to pool in profits at a larger length with the power plant's surplus power being sold out.
We are also happy to share with you the company’s plans for setting up a 50,000 spindles spinning unit in Maharashtra to benefit from the additional TUF subsidy and capital subsidy being offered by Government of Maharashtra and also to utilize the surplus power from captive power plant recently commissioned by the Company.
The Board also decided in principle to effect the merger of its subsidiary Suryakiran International Limited with the Company with 1st April, 2013 as appointed date and has constituted a committee of Directors to work out the details.
We thank our stakeholders for their continuous support and hope to receive the same in the future.”
