3.6 FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT Financial risk factors

The Company’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks: market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company’s focus is to foresee the unpredictability of financial markets and seek to minimize potential adverse effects on its financial performance. The primary market risk to the Company is foreign exchange risk. The Company uses derivative financial instruments to mitigate foreign exchange related risk exposures.

Market risk Foreign Currency risk

The Company operates both in domestic market and internationally and a major portion of the business is transacted in foreign currencies and consequently the Company is exposed to foreign exchange risk through its sales in overseas countries, and purchases from overseas suppliers in foreign currencies. The Company holds derivative financial instruments such as foreign exchange forward and option contracts to mitigate the risk of changes in exchange rates on foreign currency exposures.

For the year ended March 31, 2017 and March 31, 2016, every percentage appreciation in the exchange rate between the Indian rupee and U.S. dollar, has affected the Company’s Profit before tax by approx Rs. 24.53 Lacs.

Derivative financial instruments

The Company holds derivative financial instruments such as foreign currency forward and option contracts to mitigate the risk of changes in exchange rates on foreign currency exposures. The counterparty for these contracts is generally a bank or a financial institution.

Credit Risk

Credit risk refers to the risk of default on its obligation by the counterparty resulting in a financial loss. The maximum exposure to the credit risk at the reporting date is primarily from trade receivables amounting to Rs. 3413.19 Lacs and Rs. 5063.28 Lacs as of March 31, 2017 and March 31, 2016, respectively. Trade receivables includes both secured and unsecured receivables and are derived from revenue earned from domestic and overseas customers. Credit risk has always been managed by the group through credit approvals, establishing credit limits and continuously monitoring the creditworthiness of customers to which the Group grants credit terms in the normal course of business.

Credit risk on cash and cash equivalents is limited as we generally invest in deposits with banks and financial institutions with high credit ratings assigned by international and domestic credit rating agencies. Investments primarily include investment in liquid mutual fund units, certificates of deposit which are funds deposited at a bank for a specified time period.

Liquidity Risk

The company’s principal sources of liquidity are cash and cash equivalents and the cash flow that is generated from operations as well as investment in mutual funds. The company believes that the working capital is sufficient to meet its current requirements. Accordingly, no liquidity risk is perceived.

As of March 31, 2017, the Company had a working capital of Rs. 7255.24 Lacs (PY. Rs. 2747.67 Lacs).


The underspend in the CSR activities in financial year 2016-17 amounting Rs. 191.63 Lacs was mainly due to extraneous factors and also due to better planning and negotiations which resulted in savings despite carrying the activities as envisaged . Besides, some projects are multiyear projects and so expenditure can be done stages/ year wise which may result in lower expenditure in a particular year.


Commercial production of the Company’s Newly setup plant in Pacharia, Dolapathar, Kamrup, Assam has commenced from 23rd February 2017.
