Tony Fountain Executive Chairman

Message from the Chairman Dear Shareholders, I am very excited to connect with each one of you, as this is my first opportunity post-acquisition of our unique company, Nayara, by the new investors. I would call it unique, because of the unparalleled nature of its strategically located assets and the fastest growing fuel retail chain in India. Adding to that is the tremendous track-record of performance of the team members and the high demand business segments we operate in. Moreover, strong support from the new investors and the diverse experience of the new management team further increases the already existing potential. A combination of these factors presents a rare opportunity for any shareholder, which we can be proud of.

Business Performance In FY18, the Company successfully overcame various challenges in the external business environment in the form of oil price volatility, OPEC production cut for heavy oils, Government policy changes as well as the internal challenges in terms of change in management & acquisition by new shareholders. Our refinery continued with its best-in-class operating performance, while our retail network continued to remain the fastest growing petroleum retail chain in India. India is already the fastest growing energy market in the world. The domestic demand for oil continues to be buoyant due to various macroeconomic factors coming into play – growing car ownership trend, high demand for two-wheelers, improved road transport infrastructure to name a few. These factors help build confidence with respect to the future growth prospects of our business.
