The Company was incorporated in March 1988 as Gujarat Godrej Innovative Chemicals Ltd. (GGICL), which was engaged in the manufacture of industrial chemicals like Alpha Olefin (AO), Alpha Olefin Sulphonate (AOS), Fatty Alcohols, Fatty Acids, Glycerin etc. This company was incurring losses since its inception due to the fact that the project was capital intensive in nature and the manufacture of AO and AOS was not having much industrial application in our country then. This resulted in heavy accumulated losses u/s 349 of the Companies Act, 1956. Also, the Company is depreciating its assets on the straight line method at the rates provided in Schedule XIV. But for the purpose of managerial remuneration, as per section 350, the depreciation is considered on the written down value method, at the rates specified in Schedule XIV, and these rates are higher and therefore there is higher depreciation charge and lower profits.

Annual Report 2002-2003 ANNEXURE "A" FORMING PART OF DIRECTORS' REPORT MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENTS

CHEMICALS DIVISION

The year saw an improvement in India’s economic growth with the Index of Industrial Production improving to an estimated 5.0% vis-à-vis 2.7% last year (as reported by CMIE).

Sales of the division grew 15% in value and 13% in volume terms. The domestic business grew by 24%. The exports business reduced about 3% in value terms on account of lower selling prices and rupee appreciation.

Despite this improvement, in view of prevailing uncertainties in political and economic spheres both in the domestic and international context the economic growth continued to be perceived as being sluggish and the consumer sentiments did not improve much.

The Chemicals division operates in the oleo-chemical and surfactants industry with a balanced blend of domestic and international operations. The division continued its de-bottlenecking, quality improvement and cost cutting initiatives with vigour during the year to improve throughput and profitability. These initiatives coupled with efficient sourcing, coverage of raw materials provides competitive advantage to the operations of this division.

Your Company largely operates in the Oleo-Chemicals, edible oils, fats and processed food industries. The division-wise performance and outlook have been covered separately in this report. FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE WITH RESPECT TO OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE GIL’s total income for 2002-03 was Rs. 67780 lac as compared to Rs. 53465 lac in the previous year. Your Company recorded a Profit before Tax of Rs. 5808 lac and a Profit after Tax of Rs. 3268 lac in 2002-03, as compared to Rs. 4061 lac and Rs. 2988 lac, respectively in 2001-02. •

This growth can be attributed to an increase in demand in end-use segments, as also to the increased market share that your company has garnered in these segments. Exports to niche markets continued during the year.

The operational performance of the various businesses of your Company is discussed in the following section of this report.

Product category-wise performance is reviewed below:

Segment Capital Employed

Glycerin accounted for 11% of the turnover of this division. During the year, sales in this category increased 6% in value and 2% in volume, despite a de-growth in demand. Your Company continued to maintain its leadership in this product category. To optimize contribution from this portfolio, appropriate balance between domestic and exports sales would continue to be maintained. Alpha Olefin Sulphonate (AOS) GIL is a pioneer and market leader in AOS production and marketing in India. AOS contributed 16% to the turnover of this division. Godrej AOS is now incorporated in a number of well-known detergent and shampoo brands in the country. The product form and delivery is customized to suit the convenience of the end-users, which has helped in improving its usage as a cost effective alternative surfactant. GIL continues to grow well in this segment on the strength of consistent quality and service. The volume growth has been a good 23% though in value terms there is a drop of 14% on account of conversion of sales into a processing arrangement. Fatty Alcohols Fatty Alcohols contributed 35% to the turnover of this division. This segment has continued to grow steadily over the years. Fatty Alcohols are mainly used in Laundry and personal care applications in the domestic market and for cosmetics and industrial applications in the international market. Significant growth in the domestic market this year has helped improve the margins for this category. In the international arena, new markets and market segments were addressed. With the tightness in some product categories and the bearish outlook on raw material prices, the prospects for this category seem good in the coming year. FOODS DIVISION The foods division recorded sales of Rs.16519 lac during the year under review. The uncertainty in the Edible Fats industry continued during the year. The price of Edible Oils increased substantially during the year due to a drop in Kharif and Rabi Crop on account of a poor monsoon. Intense competition in the category is preventing profitable rise in selling prices. Excise duty was imposed on branded edible oil category at the end of the year, making branded players uncompetitive as compared to the unbranded products. The Processed Foods Division saw the carbonated soft drink industry becoming very aggressive by launching lower priced packs. Failure of the mango crop, led to higher price of pulp and consequently, lower off take. There are two categories in this division, viz., Edible Oil & Fats and Processed Foods. Edible Oils & Fats The turnover during the year under review was Rs. 14091 lac. Intense competition from local players impacted the majority in this business. The division continued to focus on increasing margins and selling only in profitable areas. At the end of the year, unbranded products were introduced to effectively counter the impact of excise duty imposition on branded packs.

13


Industries Limited Blended oils were introduced by your company during the year to offer competitively priced edible oil to the consumer.

INTERNAL CONTROL SYSTEMS AND THEIR ADEQUACY

The total turnover of products in this category was Rs. 2428 lac.

GIL has a proper and adequate system of internal controls to ensure that all assets are safeguarded and protected against loss from unauthorised use or disposition, and that transactions are authorised, recorded and reported correctly.

This division handles tetrapak fruit drinks. This category has declined on account of intense competitive pressures from the carbonated soft drinks category. In this scenario, your company focused on institutional sales segment to improve the sale of “Jumpin” -tetrapak fruit drink.

The Corporate Audit & Assurance Dept. issues well documented Operating Procedures and Authorisations, which have adequate built-in controls, right at the beginning of any activity. Adequate checks are built in to cover all monetary transactions with proper delineation of authority.

The sale of mango pulp was impacted due to a poor crop and consequent high pulp prices. At the end of the year, the Iraq war led to suspension of exports of mango pulp, compounding the problem.

The Company’s ERP System, viz. MFG/PRO, provides adequate level of system-based checks and controls. GIL has also developed and adopted a formal Information Technology Policy (including IT Security), which is periodically reviewed.

The Division successfully commissioned a Tea-Coffee pre-mix plant set up for Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverage Pvt. Ltd.

The internal control is supplemented by an extensive programme of internal and external audits, review by management and documented policies, guidelines and procedures. The system is designed to ensure that financial and other records are reliable for preparing financial information and other data and for maintaining accountability for assets.

Processed Foods

Over all, focus of the Division continued to be predominantly on improving profitability in both the above categories during the year. ESTATE MANAGEMENT The total income from this business was Rs. 2172 lac as compared to Rs. 2178 lac in the previous year. Your Company continues to effectively utilize the available space by giving the unutilized space on Leave & Licence basis to other reputed corporates. Availability of space in central and western parts of the city, coupled with a slow down in the e-com sector will keep the pressure on the revenue generated from this operation. MEDICAL DIAGNOSTICS The medical diagnostics division achieved a turnover of Rs. 714 lac for the year, recording a growth of 39% in value terms over the last year. The focus of the division was on efficient working capital management and expansion in the product portfolio to include rapid test kits, to improve profitability. New rapid test kits for HIV were launched successfully. The division plans to consolidate the turnaround achieved this year, and improve profitability further by introducing more rapid test kits and equipment. FINANCE The dividend income decreased from Rs. 2091 lac in the previous year to Rs. 1898 lac during the year. HUMAN RESOURCES / INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS The thrust for this year was to convert ‘Potential to Performance’. Coaching was chosen as a key means to build performing leaders and an initiative called ‘SPARK: Ignite the genius’ was launched. All managers in GIL were equipped with the competency to coach their teams and those who displayed particular talent were groomed as Master-coaches. GIL tied up with one of the top ranking management institutes in the country, to build managerial capabilities amongst those junior and middle level executives who did not have formal management education. The purpose was to develop a better understanding of how different functional areas impact organizational performance and how they must be integrated, to successfully meet the Company’s business goals. On an average 5 man-days of training was received by each GIL employee. Apart from conventional training, about a third of the white-collared employees made use of the learning opportunity provided by e-Gyan, the e-learning initiative. To improve team work and people sensitivity, series of outdoor experiential programmes were also organized. The Employee Portal for GIL employees went live in December, 2002. The portal has been named Godrejite and is designed to provide a single point access for Company information & policies as well as for workflows, like Leave & Attendance, Salary Statements, Performance Management, Knowledge Sharing, etc. It is helping employees work better, faster and smarter. Industrial relations at all locations were cordial. The deployment of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and adoption of the EVA framework at all manufacturing locations helped improve performance. The total number of persons employed in GIL as on March 31, 2003 was 2195.

14

OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS The continuing addition of new capacity in the Chemicals industry is likely to bring in challenges by creating a situation of supply possibly overtaking demand over the medium term. The effort of the joint product application group in developing customized and value added products and identifying newer applications for existing products is expected to help converting this into a potential opportunity. In the Edible Oils category, blended oils have shown good opportunity for growth and the Foods Division shall continue to exploit this by launching new variants. In order to counter the pressure on margins by reducing costs, your Company is looking at third party outsourcing of its products. In the Processed Foods Division, there is a good export opportunity for the fruit pulp business. Unutilised capacity in Tetrapak fruit drink manufacture due to seasonality of the products, continues to remain a threat for the Division. RISKS AND CONCERNS Weather conditions, demand for edible oils for human consumption, oilseed production, etc., affect the availability and price of vegetable oils, which impacts both the Chemicals and the Foods businesses. Similarly, the growth of the end-user industries like detergents, polymers, industrial applications, cosmetics and personal care, etc., affect the volume and profitability of the sales of the Chemicals division, while the foods division is more impacted from changes in the domestic and import duty structure, competition from unorganized as well as international players, etc. Macro-economic factors like natural calamities, unexpected political developments, economic slow down, etc., are likely to affect the industry as also the businesses of your Company. Apart from the above, legislative changes (e.g. tax, duty and levy structures - both local and central) could also have their impact on the business performance. OUTLOOK FOR 2003-04 The outlook for the various product categories of the Chemicals division remains positive. The falling vegetable oil prices, tightness in the supply position of some of the finished products augurs well for the business and also opens up opportunities for growth in niche markets. The Foods Division has focussed on its capacity utilisation by way of third party processing and/or hiving off excess idle capacity. In this connection, the Division sold its Mysore plant for manufacturing Tetrapak fruit drinks, in the month of April 2003. This is expected to lead to better utilisation of its existing capacity at Mandideep as well as saving in fixed expenses. The Division is also exploring the possibility of new business in both the categories. CAUTIONARY STATEMENT Some of the statements in this management discussion and analysis describing the Company’s objectives, projections, estimates and expectations may be ‘forward looking statements’ within the meaning of applicable laws and regulations. Actual results might differ substantially or materially from those expressed or implied. Important developments that could affect the Company’s operations include a downtrend in domestic industry, significant changes in political and economic environment in India, tax laws, import duties, litigation and labour relations.

The tax effect is calculated on the accumulated timing differences at the year end and based on the tax rate and laws enacted or substantially enacted on the balance sheet date.

Export incentives are accounted on accrual basis and include the estimated value of duty free import entitlement under the Advance Licence Benefit Scheme and export incentives receivable under the Duty Entitlement Pass Book Scheme and the Duty Drawback Scheme. Dividend income is recognised when the right to receive the same is established. Interest income is recognised on a time proportion basis.

Research and Development Expenditure Revenue expenditure on Research & Development is charged to the Profit and Loss Account of the year in which it is incurred. Capital expenditure incurred during the year on Research & Development is shown as addition to fixed assets.

SCHEDULE 21 : PRIOR PERIOD ADJUSTMENTS

Excess provision for expenses (net) Share in jointly controlled entities

SCHEDULE 22 : NOTES TO ACCOUNTS 1.

Significant Accounting Policies : a)

Accounting Convention The financial statements are prepared under the historical cost convention, on accrual basis, in accordance with the generally accepted accounting principles in India, the Accounting Standards issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956.

b)

Construction Work-in-progress is valued at cost. f)

Transactions in foreign currency are recorded at the exchange rates prevailing on the date of the transaction. Assets and liabilities related to foreign currency transactions, remaining unsettled at the year end, are stated at the contracted rates, when covered under forward foreign exchange contracts and at year-end rates in other cases. The premium payable on forward foreign exchange contracts is amortised over the period of the contract. Exchange gains/losses are recognised in the Profit and Loss Account except in respect of liabilities incurred to acquire fixed assets in which case they are adjusted to the carrying amount of such fixed assets.

Fixed Assets Fixed Assets are stated at cost or as revalued as the case may be, less accumulated depreciation. Cost includes all expenses related to acquisition and installation, of the concerned asset. Exchange differences arising on account of repayment and year end translation of foreign currency liabilities relating to acquisition of fixed assets are adjusted to the carrying cost of the respective assets. Fixed Assets acquired under finance lease are capitalised at the lower of their face value and present value of the minimum lease payments.

c)

d)

g)

Sales are recognised where goods are supplied and are recorded net of returns, trade discounts, rebates, sales taxes and excise duty.

Borrowing costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition / construction of the underlying fixed assets are capitalised as a part of the respective asset.

Income from processing operations is recognised on completion of production/ dispatch of the goods, as per the terms of contract.

Investments

Export incentives are accounted on accrual basis and include the estimated value of duty free import entitlement under the Advance Licence Benefit Scheme and export incentives receivable under the Duty Entitlement Pass Book Scheme and the Duty Drawback Scheme. Dividend income is recognised when the right to receive the same is established. Interest income is recognised on a time proportion basis.

Inventories Inventories are valued at lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is computed on weighted average basis and is net of modvat. Finished goods and work-inprogress include cost of conversion and other costs incurred in bringing the inventories to their present location and condition. Obsolescence and other anticipated losses are provided for wherever considered necessary.

48

Revenue Recognition

Borrowing Costs

Long term investments are carried at cost. Provision for diminution, if any, in the value of each long term investment is made to recognise a decline, other than of a temporary nature. The fair value of a long term investment is ascertained with reference to its market value, the investee’s assets and results and the expected cash flows from the investment. e)

Foreign Exchange Transactions

Income on assets given on operating lease is recognised on a straight line basis over the lease term. h)

Research and Development Expenditure Revenue expenditure on Research & Development is charged to the Profit and Loss Account of the year in which it is incurred. Capital expenditure incurred


Annual Report 2002-2003 during the year on Research & Development is shown as addition to fixed assets. i)

only to the extent that there is a reasonable certainty that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets can be realised. The tax effect is calculated on the accumulated timing differences at the year end and based on the tax rate and laws enacted or substantially enacted on the Balance Sheet date.

Depreciation Leasehold land is amortised equally over the lease period. n)

Trademarks are amortised over a period of four to fifteen years depending on the expected utilisation.

The Accounting Policies adopted for segment reporting are in line with the Accounting Policies of the Company. Segment assets include all operating assets used by the business segments and consist principally of fixed assets, debtors and inventories. Segment liabilities include the operating liabilities that result from the operating activities of the business segment.

Segment Reporting

Basis of Consolidation : (a) Principles of Consolidation : The consolidated financial statements relate to Godrej Industries Limited, the holding company, its majority owned subsidiaries, Joint ventures and Associates. The consolidation of accounts of the Company with its subsidiaries has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Accounting Standard (AS) 21 ‘Consolidated Financial Statements’. The financial statements of the parent and its subsidiaries are combined on a line by line basis and intra group balances, intra group transactions and unrealised profits or losses are fully eliminated. In the consolidated financial statements, ‘Goodwill’ represents the excess of the cost of investments in the subsidiaries and/or joint ventures over its share of equity, at the dates on which the investments are made. Alternatively, where the share of equity as on the date of investment is in excess of cost of investment, it is recognised as ‘Capital Reserve’ in the consolidated financial statements. Minority interest in the net assets of consolidated subsidiaries consists of the amount of equity attributable to the minority shareholders at the dates on which investments are made by the Company in the subsidiary companies and further movements in their share in the equity, subsequent to the dates of investment as stated above. Investments in Joint Ventures are dealt with in accordance with Accounting Standard (AS) 27 ‘Financial Reporting of Interests in Joint Ventures’. The Company’s interest in jointly controlled entities are reported using proportionate consolidation, whereby the Company’s share of jointly controlled assets and liabilities and the share of income and expenses of the jointly controlled entities are reported as separate line items. Investments in Associates are dealt with in accordance with Accounting Standard (AS) 23 ‘Accounting for Investments in Associates in Consolidated Financial Statements’ issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Effect has been given to the carrying amount of investments in associates using the ‘Equity method’. The Company’s share of the post acquisition profits or losses is included in the carrying cost of investments. The financial statements of the subsidiaries, joint ventures and associates used in the consolidation are drawn upto the same reporting date as of the Company i.e. year ended March 31, 2003. The figures for the earlier year have not been re-computed for Joint Venture and Associate Companies which in the earlier year were accounted for as investments under Accounting Standard (AS) 13 ‘Accounting for Investments’ and which in this year have been accounted for as Joint Venture Companies under Accounting Standard (AS) 27 and as Associate Companies under Accounting Standard (AS) 23.
