Inspiration Dear Friends, The first quarter of the current financial year has been rather disappointing for the Indian Economy as a whole and the Indian Automobile Industry. The rate of growth of the GDP for the current year was brought down from 9% to 7% estimation. The Indian automotive industry showed a minimal growth of 7% in quarter one verses same quarter last year. Only passenger vehicles and two wheelers showed growths while rest of the segments were in the red. Top line of the DK Jain group grew by 16% and Lumax Industries’ registered a growth of 16%, whereas the bottom line of the Group fell by 0.7% and Lumax Industries’ fell by 2.2%. The steep increase in the rate of petrol has had an adverse effect in the industry. Apart from the increase in petrol price, the dollar exchange rate touched the highest ever, thereby resulting in increase of our raw material prices and putting extreme pressure on our bottom-line. Friends, the situation is alarming and asks for immediate corrective actions from our side. I urge all of us, to once again get back to the drawing board and analyze each aspect of our business critically. We need to evaluate our sourcing, processes, capacity utilization and manpower deployment. In

these challenging times, we need to be sure of any additional capital expenditure required and unless the same is essentially required, we should look at deferring the same. The new plants where we have recently gone on SOP, processes and measures should be set in the beginning itself, to have lean manufacturing and full utilization of our machines without compromising of Quality. Our adaptability/flexibility shall hold the key to our competitive advantage. Apart from our core business, I would like the top management team to also focus on new business, be it in the automotive sector or otherwise. Having a diverse portfolio is becoming essential to the health of the organization. As you are aware, the LUMAX group has ventured for the first time into electronic component manufacturing by setting up a state of the art SMT line facility in Manesar. I look forward to a new chapter in the group’s history with this division as it will cater to a wide range of industries, including automotive. Lumax started the supplies of plastic moulded parts to Honda 2 Wheeler mainly – Visor front, Rear fender, Cover H/L Rear etc. The Lumax group has plans to enter the

accessories business in the automobile industry. As you are aware, the penetration of the accessories is relatively low in the Indian automobile market, which throws a huge opportunity for the future in the accessories business. Friends, in the end, we are going through tough times, however we have seen tough times in the past and have always come out as winners. I have no doubt in my mind, that with a strong team with a mix of experience and youth we shall once again come out as winners. I personally believe that our country and our industry have a bright future in the long run and these pressure times are temporary. We need to stand together as a team in these tough times and I am sure we will come out as winners. GOD BLESS

Scaling New Heights Opto Electronics Division

Electronics in general and LED based lamps in particular have found increased space in the Indian Automotive Industry Keeping this in view, a need was felt to put in-house facility for PCB assembling and a capable Design team. We have up our own SMT line at Manesar for catering all our PCB assembly requirements. This is a state of the art line as we have put in best in class machines like Panasonic, Dek, Vitronics etc. This is the first time that Lumax is venturing in to Electronics Manufacturing. The division has been named Opto Electronics Division. The setting up of Opto Electronics Division will give us more room for innovation to be offered to our esteemed customers.Our in house Manufacturing, Design and Testing would enhance our control on production and in turn bring Customer satisfaction.
