II - RISK FACTORS The following is the summary of the risk factors. The more detailed information about the Company and its financial statements has been included elsewhere in this Information Memorandum. Unless specified or quantified in the relevant risk factors below, the Company is not in a position to quantify the financial or other implication of any of the risks described in this Section. The numbering of the risk factors has been done to facilitate ease of reading and reference and does not in any manner indicate the importance of one risk over another. An investment in equity shares involves a high degree of risk. The investor should carefully consider all the information in this Information Memorandum including the risks and uncertainties mentioned below. If any of the following risks actually occur, the business, financial condition and operations of the Company could suffer, the trading price of the Equity Shares could decline and the investor may lose all or part of their investments. MATERIALITY The Risk Factors have been determined on the basis of their materiality. The following factors have been considered for determining the materiality: • • • Some events may not be material individually but may be found material collectively. Some events may have material impact qualitatively instead of quantitatively. Some events may not be material at present but may be having material impact in future. The risk factors are as envisaged by the management along with the proposals to address the risk if any. INTERNAL RISK FACTORS Risk factors related to our Company and Business 1. Our Company may be involved in legal proceedings in various states in India, both as plaintiff and as defendant, in which we may not prevail. Pursuant to the clause 13 of the Scheme of Arrangement and Demerger, all legal and other proceedings by or against Zuari Global Limited ( formerly known as Zuari Industries Limited) and relating to the Fertiliser Undertaking shall be continued and enforced by or against Zuari Agro Chemicals Limited (formerly known as Zuari Holdings Limited) only. If proceedings are taken against Zuari Global Limited, Zuari Global Limited will defend on notice as per advice of Zuari Agro Chemicals Limited at

7

the costs of Zuari Agro Chemicals Limited and Zuari Agro Chemicals Limited will indemnify and keep indemnified Zuari Global Limited from and against all liabilities, obligations, actions, claims, and demands in respect thereof. There are certain claims pending against us, which are discussed elsewhere in the Information Memorandum. Some of these actions against us may result in financial Settlements and penalties that may affect our earnings. If we are sued by our customers or end users in case of any defects in our Fertilisers, our reputation and business may be adversely affected. For further details, kindly refer to the section titled “Outstanding Litigations, Defaults And Material Developments.” 2. Our sales are to a large extent dependent on the overall area under cultivation and the cropping pattern adopted by the farming community in India The Company has taken over the Fertilizer Undertaking of the Zuari Industries Limited(now Zuari Global Limited) pursuant to Demerger scheme approved by the High Court of Bombay at Goa. The Company shall derive profits primarily from sales of Urea, Diammonium phosphate (DAP), Muriate of Potash (MOP) and NP/NPK Complex in various parts of India. Any significant reduction (10% or more) in the area under cultivation or any shortfall of rainfall may significantly reduce the demand for our Fertilisers. Also the demand of our Fertilisers is dependent on the cropping pattern which may vary year on year for the major crops. Any significant changes in the cultivable area, rain distribution and the cropping pattern in India may impact our sales and profitability. Fortunes of the fertilizer industry as a whole depend on the status of the agriculture sector which in turn depends on the adequacy of monsoons. Erratic or inadequate monsoons could have an adverse impact on the fertilizer industry and the Company. 3. Regulated industry and grant of Subsidies by the Government Fertilizer industry is a regulated Industry in India. The Maximum Retail Price as well as subsidy on fertilizers is dependent on Government regulations (policies vary on the type of Fertilser). Any change in the Government policies with respect to fertilizers and allied agro products especially covered under the subsidy scheme may affect the company’s sales and profitability. Urea is presently under the Retention Pricing Scheme, whereby the urea manufacturers get a specified return on the net worth. Decontrol of Urea could affect the fortunes of the fertilizer industry and the Company. In an endeavor to ensure a balanced use of fertilizers, the Government has introduced Nutrient Based Subsidy on DAP and other complex fertilizers.. Delay in

8

determination and receipt of subsidy from the Central Government may affect the profitability of the Company. 4. Manufacturing Facilities and smooth operations of Plant and ability to adapt to technological changes: The operation of the units may be disrupted for reasons that are beyond the control of the Company including explosions, fires, earthquakes and other natural disasters, breakdown, failure or substandard performance of equipment, improper installation or operation of equipment, accidents, operational problems, transportation interruptions, other environmental risks and labour disputes. In addition, the Company's projects may also be targets of terrorist attacks or other civil disturbances. Furthermore, the Company relies on extremely sophisticated and complex machinery that is built by third parties and may be susceptible to malfunction. The Company cannot assure that it will successfully implement new technologies effectively or adapt its systems to emerging industry standards. The loss of or shutdown of operations at company’s manufacturing facility may have a material adverse effect on its business, financial condition and results of operations. The Company’s operations could be adversely affected by strikes, work stoppages or increased wage demands by its employees. 5. Delay or non-receipt of relevant regulatory and' third party approvals may have an adverse effect on the operations and financial condition of the Company. As a result of the Scheme of Demerger approved by the High Court, the Company is required to transfer the assets, properties, contracts and licenses and permits forming part of the Demerged Undertaking, from Zuari Industries Limited (now Zuari Global Limited) in favour of the Company. Some of the consent s have been obtained and some are still pending. Any delay or non- receipt of these consents will hamper the operations of the Company and may have an adverse impact on the financial condition of the Company. 6. Our failure to obtain and renew Compliance requirements and regulatory approvals required for our business may be detrimental for our business. Most of Company’s approvals for manufacturing process are valid for certain period and requires regular renewals. These renewals are required in ordinary course of business and are subject to compliances with various conditions stipulated in those approval/ Licenses. In case the Company is unable to get its licenses and approval

9

renewed in time the operation of the manufacturing facilities and marketing of the products may be hampered, which can affect its results of operations and financials. 7. Our inability to meet the quality norms prescribed by the Government. Quality of Fertilizer products manufactured in India is open to independent verification by Government agencies. Government agencies carry out surprise sample checking of Fertilisers for their contents / nutrients. In case, the content / nutrients in the sample does not comply with the quality norms prescribed by the Government, it could lead to issuance of show cause notices. Any failure on quality control by the Company could lead to suspension of sales of those batches and /or Fertilisers in that particular state or the Fertilisers manufactured by the company being totally banned for sales. 8. Risk on availability of raw material, transportation arrangements and Imports restrictions. The price and availability of imported raw materials for the manufacture of Phosphatic Fertilisers could affect the profitability of the Company. The Company’s business may be adversely affected if it is unable to renew its contracts with raw material suppliers. The Company’s business is dependent on continued availability of raw materials Naptha/LNG/Gas, phosphoric acid and Potash. Any interruption in the availability of the abovementioned or other raw materials may adversely affect Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations. Similarly, in the event that suppliers face a plant shutdown or other problems which affect the continued supply of aforementioned raw materials to the Company, financial condition and results of operations may be adversely affected. 9. Risk in relation to usage of hazardous chemical / substances in our production The Company is exposed to risk of usage of hazardous chemicals in production. Any mishandling of hazardous chemicals / substances could lead to fatal accidents, which may affect its business operations. In order to prevent such mishandling the Company has established various measures including training of workers, no entry to production area without safety devices, prominent display of safety measures and precautionary measures in production area etc. Effluent water treatment plant has been installed and recycled water is used in processes / gardens in the precincts. Fresh air induction systems have been installed to create a better protection environment.

10

10.

Environmental laws and regulations: Environmental laws and regulations in India are becoming stringent and it is possible that they will become significantly more stringent in the future. If, as a result of noncompliance with any environmental regulations, any heavy penalty is imposed on the Company or any of its units or the operations of such units are shut down, The Company will continue to incur costs in complying with these regulations, appealing against any decision to close its facilities, maintaining production at its existing facilities and continuing to pay labour and other costs which continue, even if the facility is closed. As a result, the Company’s overall operating expenses will increase and its profits will decrease.

11.

Competition from other established companies and future entrants into the industry. The Company operates in the domestic market where it faces competition from other domestic players. Growing competition may force the Company to reduce the prices of its Fertilisers, which may reduce revenues and margins and/or decrease market share, either of which could impact results or operations.

12.

The insurance policies obtained by us may not be adequate to protect us against all potential losses, which we may be subject to in future. The Company has covered itself against majority of the risks. The Company’s significant insurance policies consist of policies on Plant & Machinery, stocks of inventory and Employee group health schemes. In addition, it has obtained separate insurance coverage to cover terrorism risks. The Company will rely upon insurance coverage to insure against damage and loss to its plant that may occur during operation. Nevertheless, the insurance that the Company obtains may not be sufficient to protect it from all casualties and losses. Losses suffered due to inadequate coverage may have an adverse impact on the Company's business, financial condition and operations

13.

Availability of additional funds / working capital on unfavorable terms and conditions or Increase in interest rates The Company's business is capital intensive and the Company may plan to make additional capital expenditures to complete the projects that it is currently developing or that it may develop in the future. The Company's ability to pay dividends in the future will depend upon its future earnings, financial condition, cash flows, working

11

capital requirements, capital expenditures and restrictive covenants in its financing arrangements. The Company's future dividend policy will depend on its capital requirements and financing arrangements for projects, financial condition, operations and Government of India policy. The Company’s inability to get funds on acceptable term could impact its growth and profitability. 14. Risks of retention of manpower, Key Managerial persons or Increased cost of Manpower The Company is dependent on its non-executive Chairman, Mr. S.K. Poddar Mr. N. Suresh Krishnan, Managing Director, and a number of other key personnel, and the loss of such persons, or its inability to attract key personnel or retain them in the future, could adversely affect the Company. Company’s sustained growth depends on our ability to attract and retain skilled manpower. Failure to attract and retain skilled manpower could adversely affect its growth strategy. Any significant changes in the key managerial personnel, may affect the performance of the Company. Also, Wage increases may reduce its profit margins and negatively impact the financial condition and results of operations of the Company. 15. Besides above, as a manufacturing company, the Company is subject to several risks, including: • • • Ability to hire skilled labour; Issues in securing an adequate and uninterrupted supply of water, power for manufacturing operations and at cost-effective rates; and The occurrence of any of these events, individually or in aggregate, could have an adverse effect on the Company's business, prospects, financial condition and operations. External Risk factors 1. Certain factors beyond the control of our Company like floods, droughts, monsoons, etc. can adversely affect operations of our Company. Natural calamities like floods and droughts directly affect the cropping pattern in India, where agriculture is dependent on monsoon. To that extent Company’s sales are dependent on the monsoon. Company’s sales and profitability may be affected due to excessive rains or droughts, when the farmers do not undertake sowing.

12

2.

Political, economic and social developments in lndia could adversely affect the Company's business, financial condition and operations The central and state governments serve multiple roles in the Indian economy, including those of producers, consumers and regulators, which have significant influence on the Fertiliser industry and the Company. Changes in these governmental policies could have a significant impact on the business and economic conditions in India in general and fertilizer Industry in particular, which in turn could adversely affect the Company's business, financial condition and operations. Additionally, any political instability in India and macro economic indicators may adversely affect the Indian securities markets in general, which could also adversely affect the trading price of the Equity Shares. Movement in the exchange rates of Indian Rupee against foreign currencies like US Dollar, Euro , Japanese Yen and other major foreign currencies can adversely impact the financials of the Company.

3.

Companies operating in India are subject to a variety of central and state government taxes and surcharges. Tax and other levies imposed by the central and state governments in India that affect the Company's tax liability include central and state taxes and other levies, income tax, value added tax, turnover tax, service tax, stamp duty and other special taxes and surcharges which are introduced on a temporary or permanent basis from time to time. Moreover, the central and state tax scheme in India is extensive and subject to change from time to time. For example, a new direct tax code is proposed to be introduced before the Indian Parliament. In addition, there is a proposal to introduce a new goods and services tax and the scope of the service tax is proposed to be enlarged. The central government may in the future increase the corporate income taxes they impose. Any such future increases or amendments may affect the overall tax efficiency of companies operating in India and may result in significant additional taxes becoming payable. Additional tax exposure could adversely affect the Company's business and operations.

4.

Change of Law: Rights of shareholders under Indian laws may be more limited than under the laws of other jurisdictions. The Companies Act and related regulations, the Listing Agreements and the AoA govern the Company's corporate affairs. Legal principles relating to these matters and the validity of corporate procedures, directors' fiduciary duties and liabilities and shareholders' rights may differ from those that would apply to a company in another jurisdiction. The rights of shareholders under Indian laws may not be as extensive as

13

the rights of shareholders under the laws of other countries or jurisdictions. An investor may have more difficulty in asserting his rights as a shareholder of the Company than as a shareholder of a corporation in another jurisdiction. 5. A slowdown in the economic growth in India Any slowdown in the Indian economy or in the growth of the Fertiliser industry or any future volatility in global commodity prices could adversely affect the Company's customers and the growth of its business, which in turn could adversely affect its business, financial condition and operations. India's economy could be adversely affected by a general rise in interest rates, currency exchange rates and adverse conditions affecting agriculture, commodity and electricity prices or various other factors. Further, conditions outside India, such as slowdown in the economic growth of other countries could have an impact on the growth of the Indian economy and government policy may change in response to such conditions. 6. The extent and reliability of Indian infrastructure could adversely impact the Company's operations and financial condition. India's physical infrastructure is less developed than that of many developed nations. Any congestion or disruption with its port, rail and road networks, electricity grid, communication systems or any other public facility could disrupt the Company's normal business activity. Any deterioration of India's physical infrastructure would harm the national economy, disrupt the transportation of goods and supplies and add costs to doing business in India. These problems could interrupt the Company's business operations, which could have an adverse effect on its financial condition. 7. In case Inflation worsens, the Company's operations and financial condition may be adversely affected. India's wholesale price inflation index suggested an increasing inflation trend compared to recent years. An increase in inflation in India could cause a rise in the price of transportation, wages, raw materials or any other of the Company's expenses. If this trend continues, the Company may be unable to reduce its costs or pass its increased costs to its customers and its operations and financial condition may be adversely affected. 8. Terrorist attacks involving India, can adversely affect our business.

14

Terrorist attacks and other acts of violence or war, including those involving India, or any other countries, may adversely affect Indian and worldwide financial markets. These acts may also result in a loss of business confidence and have other consequences that could adversely affect the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition. 9. Any significant change in the Government’s economic liberalization and

deregulation policies could disrupt the business and adversely affect the financial performance of our Company. Any significant change in the Government’s policies or any political instability in India could adversely affect the business and economic conditions in India and could also adversely affect the business, future financial performance and the price of the Company’s Equity Shares. 10. A decline in India's foreign exchange reserves may affect liquidity and interest rates in the Indian economy, which could adversely impact the Company's financial condition. A decline in India's foreign exchange reserves could impact the valuation of the Rupee and result in reduced liquidity and higher interest rates, which could adversely affect its future financial condition. On the other hand, high levels of foreign funds inflow could add excess liquidity to the system, leading to policy interventions, which would also allow slowdown of economic growth. In either case, an increase in interest rates in the economy following a decline in foreign exchange reserves could adversely affect the Company's business, prospects, financial condition, operations and the trading price of the Equity Shares. 11. Volatile Market: The Equity Shares of the Company are currently not listed. The price of its Equity Shares on the Indian Stock Exchanges may fluctuate after listing as a result of several factors including
• • • •

Volatility in Indian and global securities market; Results of operations and performance of other units in the Industry; Performance of the competitors and perception in the Indian market about investment in the Fertilizers Industry; Adverse media reports, if any, on the Company or the Fertilizer Industry;

15

• • •

Changes in the estimates of company’s performance or recommendations by financial analysts; Significant development in India’s economic liberalization and de-regulation policies; and Significant development in India’s fiscal and environmental regulations.

12.

Certain factors beyond the control of our Company like Earthquake, Tsunami, civil unrest, epidemic disease, war etc. or any other acts of violence involving India and other countries can adversely affect our Company and financial markets, where the Equity Shares of our Company will be traded Certain events are beyond Company’s control such as the tsunami or seismically generated sea waves capable of considerable destruction and terrorist attacks. The other acts of violence or war including civil unrest, military activity and hostilities among countries may adversely affect worldwide financial markets and could lead to economic recession. Any such event could adversely affect our financial performance or the market price of the equity shares.

Rationale for the Scheme of Demerger z ZGL had grown to a very sizeable organisation and has evolved into a well diversified and progressive industrial group. z Each of the respective businesses of ZGL were distinct and diverse in their characteristics, growth trajectories, risk profile, maturity stage, requirement of funds and require entirely different approaches. In order to effectively and efficiently cater to the independent growth plans (both through organic and inorganic means), of each of the respective businesses, and in order to diversify, continuous funding support through equity and debt is imperative. z The Transferee Company was a direct and indirect wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and was engaged in the business of inter alia making strategic investments into and holding securities of other entities and operating fertilizer plants. z With the intent of adopting a linear structure in the businesses of ZGL, the Board of Directors of ZGL decided to demerge the Fertilizer Undertaking of the Company into the Transferee Company, in compliance with provisions of Sections 391-395 and other relevant provisions of the Act. z The benefits likely to arise from the proposed arrangement and demerger are as follows: a) The arrangement and demerger would be in the larger interest of the shareholders, creditors and employees of ZGL as it will enable them to fulfill their objectives more efficiently by separately holding investments which best suit their investment strategies and risk profiles.

b) The Scheme gives flexibility to shareholders of ZGL to continue or divest in the Company and/or in the Transferee Company. c) The demerger of the Fertilizer Undertaking into the Transferee Company will provide as a measure of corporate restructuring and will help to develop potential for further growth and diversification to have better synergy and optimization of resources as well as to facilitate fund raising and development of the Fertilizer Undertaking. d) The demerger would enable the better and more efficient management, control and running of the Fertilizer Undertaking by the Transferee Company. e) The Scheme would not in any manner be prejudicial to the interests of concerned shareholders or creditors or general public at large. The arrangement contemplated in the Scheme would help avoid duplication of resources, systems, skills and process, reduce overall cost, improve synergies, enable the achievement of economies of scale, reduce administrative costs entailed by the conduct of businesses through separate entities, provide enhanced flexibility in funding of expansion plans, promote management efficiency and optimize the resources of the Transferor Company and the Transferee Company.

INCOME FROM CAPITAL GAINS 2.1 In terms of first proviso to section 48 of the IT Act, in case of a non-resident, while computing the capital gains arising from transfer of shares in or debentures of the Company acquired in convertible foreign exchange (as per exchange control regulations) protection is provided from fluctuations in the value of rupee in terms of foreign currency in which the original investment was made. Cost indexation benefit will not be available in such a case. The capital gains/ loss in such a case is computed by converting the cost of acquisition, sales consideration and expenditure incurred wholly and exclusively in connection with such transfer into the same foreign currency which was utilized in the purchase of shares. Provisions of section 10(38) of the IT Act, exempt the long term capital gains arising on sale of equity shares in the Company where the sale transaction has been entered into on a recognized stock exchange of India and has been liable to securities transaction tax.

The provisions of section 112 of the IT Act, permit taxing long term capital gains [which are not exempt under Section 10(38) of the IT Act] arising on transfer of shares in the Company at a rate of 20 percent (plus applicable surcharge and education cess) after considering indexation benefit. However, the share holder may opt for the tax on long term gains computed at the rate of 10 percent (plus applicable surcharge and education cess), if the tax on indexed long term capital gains resulting on transfer of listed securities calculated at the rate of 20 percent (after indexation benefit) exceeds the tax on long term gains computed at the rate of 10 percent without considering indexation benefit. The provisions of section 111A of the IT Act, prescribes for taxing the shortterm capital gains arising from sale of equity share in a Company at a rate of 15 percent (plus applicable surcharge and education cess) where such transaction of sale is entered on a recognized stock exchange in India and is liable to securities transaction tax. Short term capital gains arising from transfer of shares in a company other than those covered by Section 111A of the IT Act would be subject to tax as calculated under the normal provisions of the IT Act. The provisions of the Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement between India and the country of residence of the non-resident would prevail over the provisions of the IT Act, as per section 90(2) of the IT Act; to the extent they are more beneficial to the non-resident.

XI. INDUSTRY OVERVIEW Indian agriculture – Fertilizer Production and Demand in India Agriculture accounts for one fifth of GDP, provides sustenance to two-thirds of our population. The Government of India has been consistently pursuing policies conducive to increased availability and consumption of fertilizers in the country. As a result, the annual consumption of nutrients (N, P & K), has increased from 0.7 lakh MT in 1951-52 to 281.22 lakh MT 2010-11. As of now, the country has achieved near 75% capacity in production of urea. Similarly, adequate indigenous capacity has been developed in respect of phosphatic fertilizers to meet domestic requirements. However the raw materials and intermediates for the same are largely imported. As for potash (K) since there are no viable sources/ reserves in the country, its entire requirements are met through imports. Nutrient-wise capacity and actual production of Fertilizers Year 2009-10 2010-11 2011-12 Capacity (‘000 tonnes) Nitrogen (N) 12,944 12,947 12,947 Phosphorus (P) 6,176 6,200 6215 Production (‘000 tonnes) Nitrogen (N) 11,924 12,178 12288 Phosphorus (P) 4,374 4,371 4364

Zuari Agro Chemicals Limited (Formerly known as Zuari Holdings Limited)  Notes to financial statements for the period April 01, 2012 to September 30, 2012      ii)   Use of Estimates    The  preparation  of  financial  statements  in  conformity  with  generally  accepted  accounting  principles  (Indian  GAAP)  requires  management  to  make  estimates  and  assumptions  that  affect  the  reported  amounts  of  revenues,  expenses,  assets  and  liabilities  and  disclosure  of  contingent  liabilities  at  the  date  of  the  financial  statements  and  the  results  of  operations  during  the  reporting  period.   Although  these estimates are based upon management’s best knowledge of current events and actions, actual  results could differ from these estimates.    iii) Fixed Assets  Fixed assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation/amortisation and impairment losses, if  any. Cost comprises the purchase price and any attributable cost of  bringing the asset to its working  condition for its intended use.     Machinery  spares  which  are  specific  to  a  particular  item  of  fixed  asset  and  whose  use  is  expected  to  be irregular are capitalized as fixed assets.     Subsequent  expenditure  related  to  an  item  of  fixed  asset  is  added  to  its  book  value  only  if  it  increases  the  future  benefits  from  the  existing  asset  beyond  its  previously  assessed  standard  of  performance.  All  other  expenses  on  existing  fixed  assets,  including  day‐to‐day  repair  and  maintenance expenditure and cost of replacing parts, are charged to the statement of profit and loss  for the period during which such expenses are incurred.    iv)  Depreciation   Depreciation  on  tangible  and  intangible  fixed  assets  is  provided  using  the  Straight  Line  Method  as  per  the  useful  lives  of  the  assets  (other  than  machinery  spares)  as  estimated  by  the  management,  which  are  equal  to  the  rates  prescribed  under  Schedule  XIV  of  the  Companies  Act,  1956  except  for  computers and peripherals which are depreciated/amortized over the useful lives of three years. For  this purpose, a major portion of the plant has been considered as continuous process plant.   Machinery  spares  are  depreciated  prospectively  over  the  estimated  remaining  useful  lives  of  the  respective mother assets.    v) Intangibles    Intangible  assets  acquired  separately  are  measured  on  initial  recognition  at  cost.  The  cost  of  intangible  assets  acquired  in  an  amalgamation  in  the  nature  of  purchase  is  their  fair  value  as  at  the  date  of  amalgamation.  Following  initial  recognition,  intangible  assets  are  carried  at  cost  less  accumulated amortization and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Internally generated intangible  assets,  excluding  capitalized  development  costs,  are  not  capitalized  and  expenditure  is  reflected  in  the  statement  of  profit  and  loss  in  the  year  in  which  the  expenditure  is  incurred.  Intangibles  representing  computer  software  are  amortized  using  the  straight  line  method  over  their  estimated  useful lives of three years.

The Company caters to the demand of the Farmers all over the country, through its “Jaikisaan” brand of Fertilisers. Basis for preparation The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in India (Indian GAAP). The Company has prepared this financial statement to comply in all material respects with the Notified Accounting Standards by Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules, 2006 (as amended) and the relevant provisions of the Companies Act, 1956. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention on an accrual basis. The accounting policies have been consistently applied by the Company and are consistent with those used in previous year except for the change in accounting policy explained below.

2.1 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Change in Accounting Policies i) Presentation and disclosure of financial statements The Revised Schedule VI notified under the Companies Act, 1956 has become applicable to the Company, for preparation and presentation of its financial statements commencing from 1st April 2011. The adoption of revised schedule VI does not impact recognition and measurement principles followed for preparation of financial statements. However it has significant impact on presentation and disclosures made in the financial statements. The Company has also reclassified the previous figures in accordance with the requirements applicable in the current year. Assets and Liabilities in the balance sheet have been classified as either current or non–current based upon the requirements of Revised Schedule VI notified under the Companies Act 1956. An asset has been classified as current if (a) it is expected to be realized in, or is intended for sale or consumption in, the Company’s normal operating cycle; or (b) it is held primarily for the purpose of being traded; or (c) it is expected to be realized within twelve months after the reporting date; or (d) it is cash or cash equivalent unless it is restricted from being exchanged or used to settle a liability for at least twelve months after the reporting date. All other assets have been classified as non–current. A liability has been classified as current when (a) it is expected to be settled in the Company’s normal operating cycle; or (b) it is held primarily for the purpose of being traded; or (c) it is due to be settled within twelve months after the reporting date; or (d) the Company does not have an unconditional right to defer settlement of the liability for at least twelve months after the reporting date. All other liabilities have been classified as non–current. An operating cycle is the time between the acquisition of assets for processing and their realization in cash or cash equivalents. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (Indian GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the results of operations during the reporting period. Although these estimates are based upon management’s best knowledge of current events and actions, actual results could differ from these estimates. Fixed assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation/amortisation and impairment losses, if any. Cost comprises the purchase price and any attributable cost of bringing the asset to its working condition for its intended use.

iv) Fixed Assets

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 MARCH 2012 Contd..... Machinery spares which are specific to a particular item of fixed asset and whose use is expected to be irregular are capitalized as fixed assets. Subsequent expenditure related to an item of fixed asset is added to its book value only if it increases the future benefits from the existing asset beyond its previously assessed standard of performance. All other expenses on existing fixed assets, including day–to–day repair and maintenance expenditure and cost of replacing parts, are charged to the statement of profit and loss for the period during which such expenses are incurred. Depreciation on tangible and intangible fixed assets is provided using the Straight Line Method as per the useful lives of the assets (other than machinery spares) as estimated by the management, which are equal to the rates prescribed under Schedule XIV of the Companies Act, 1956 except for computers and peripherals which are depreciated/amortised over the useful lives of three years. For this purpose, a major portion of the plant has been considered as continuous process plant. Machinery spares are depreciated prospectively over the estimated remaining useful lives of the respective mother assets. Intangible assets acquired separately are measured on initial recognition at cost. The cost of intangible assets acquired in an amalgamation in the nature of purchase is their fair value as at the date of amalgamation. Following initial recognition, intangible assets are carried at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Internally generated intangible assets, excluding capitalized development costs, are not capitalized and expenditure is reflected in the statement of profit and loss in the year in which the expenditure is incurred. Intangibles representing computer software are amortized using the straight line method over their estimated useful lives of three years. The carrying amounts of Tangible and Intangible fixed assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date if there is any indication of impairment based on internal/external factors. An impairment loss is recognized wherever the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is the greater of the asset’s net selling price and value in use. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre–discount rate that reflects current market assessment of the time value of the money and rates specific to that asset. After impairment, depreciation is provided on the revised carrying amount of the asset over its remaining useful life. Inventories are valued at the lower of Cost and Net Realisable Value. The Cost is determined as follows: (a) Stores and spares, Fuel oil, Raw Materials and Packing Materials : Moving weighted average method (b) Work–in–process: Material cost on moving weighted average method and appropriate manufacturing overheads based on normal operating capacity (c) (i) Finished goods (manufactured): Material cost on moving weighted average method and appropriate manufacturing overheads based on normal operating capacity including Excise Duty (ii) Traded goods : Moving weighted average method Materials and other items held for use in the production of inventories are not written down below cost if the finished products in which they will be incorporated are expected to be sold at or above cost. Net Realisable Value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less the estimated costs of completion and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale. Investments that are readily realisable and intended to be held for not more than a year from the date of which such investments are made are classified as current investments. All other investments are classified as long–term investments. Current investments are carried at lower of cost and fair value determined on an individual investment basis. Long–term investments are carried at cost. However, provision for diminution in value is made to recognize a decline other than temporary in the value of the investments. Retirement and other Employee Benefits Pursuant to the Scheme of Arrangement and Demerger approved by the Hon’ble High Court of Bombay at Goa, all the Assets, Liabilities pertaining to Fertiliser Undertaking of Zuari Industries Limited as on 1st July, 2011 have been transferred to the Company at their book values and accordingly Retirement and other benefits of employees of Fertiliser undertaking have been transferred to the Demerged entity.

Leave Encashment Accumulated leave, which is expected to be utilized within the next 12 months, is treated as Short term employee benefit. The Company measures the expected cost of such absences as the additional amount that it expects to pay as a result of the unused entitlement that has accumulated at the reporting date The Company treats accumulated leave expected to be carried forward beyond twelve months as long term employee benefit for measurement purpose. Such long term compensated absences are provided for based on actuarial valuation using the projected unit credit method at the year end.

Exchange Differences Exchange differences arising on the settlement of monetary items or on reporting Company‘s monetary items at rates different from those at which they were initially recorded during the year, or reported in previous financial statements, are recognised as income or as expenses in the year in which they arise. The premium or discount arising at the inception of forward exchange contracts is amortised as expense or income over the life of the contract. Exchange differences on such contracts are recognised in the statement of profit and loss in the year in which the exchange rates change.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 MARCH 2012 Contd..... Revenue from sale of goods, including concession in respect of Urea, DAP , MOP and Complex Fertilisers receivable from the Government of India under the New Pricing Scheme/Concession Scheme, is recognized when the significant risk and rewards of ownership of the goods have passed to the customers. The Company collects sales taxes and value added taxes (VAT) on behalf of the government and, therefore, these are not economic benefits flowing to the Company. Hence, they are excluded from revenue. Excise Duty deducted from turnover (gross) is the amount that is included in the amount of turnover (gross) and not the entire amount of liability assessed during the year. Concessions in respect of Urea as notified under the New Pricing Scheme is recognized with adjustments for escalation/ de–escalation in the prices of inputs and other adjustments as estimated by the management in accordance with the known policy parameters in this regard. Subsidy for Phosphatic and Potassic (P&K) fertilisers are recognized as per rates notified by the Government of India in accordance with Nutrient Based Subsidy Policy from time to time. Uniform freight subsidy on Urea, Complex fertilisers, Imported DAP and MOP has been accounted for in accordance with the parameters and notified rates. Interest Income is recognised on a time proportion basis taking into account the amount outstanding and the rate applicable. Insurance claims are accounted for to the extent the Company is reasonably certain of their ultimate collection. Dividend is recognized when the shareholders’ right to receive payment is established by the balance sheet date. Borrowing costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or construction of qualifying assets are capitalized to the extent they relate to the period till such assets are capitalized to the extent they relate to the period till such assets are ready to be put to use. A qualifying asset is an asset that necessarily takes substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use. Other borrowing costs are recognised as an expense in the year in which they are incurred. Where the Company is the lessee Leases where the lessor effectively retains substantially all the risks and benefits of ownership of the leased item, are classified as operating leases. Operating lease payments are recognized as an expense in the Statement of Profit and Loss on a straight–line basis over the lease term. Tax expense comprises current and deferred tax. Current income tax is measured at the amount expected to be paid to the tax authorities in accordance with the Income Tax Act, 1961. Deferred income taxes reflect the impact of timing differences between taxable income and accounting income for the year and reversal of timing differences of earlier years. Deferred tax is measured based on the tax rates and the tax laws enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date. Deferred tax assets are recognized only to the extent that there is reasonable certainty that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets can be realised. In situations where the Company has carry forward of unabsorbed depreciation and tax losses, deferred tax assets are recognised only if there is virtual certainty supported by convincing evidence that such deferred tax assets can be realised against future taxable profits. Unrecognised deferred tax assets of earlier years are re–assessed at each balance sheet date and recognised to the extent that it has become reasonably certain or virtually certain, as the case may be, that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets can be realised. The carrying amount of deferred tax assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date. The writes–down the carrying amount of a deferred tax asset to the extent that it is no longer reasonably certain or virtually certain, as the case may be, that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which deferred tax asset can be realised. Any such write–down is reversed to the extent that it becomes reasonably certain or virtually certain, as the case may be, that sufficient future taxable income will be available. A provision is recognised when an enterprise has a present obligation as a result of past event and it is probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation, in respect of which a reliable estimate can be made. Provisions are not discounted to their present value and are determined based on best estimates required to settle the obligation at the balance sheet date. These are reviewed at each balance sheet date and are adjusted to reflect the current best estimates. Basic Earnings per Share (EPS) is calculated by dividing the net profit or loss for the year attributable to the equity shareholders (after deducting attributable taxes) by the weighted average number of equity shares outstanding during the year.

ZUARI HOLDINGS LIMITED
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 MARCH 2012 Contd..... For the purpose of calculating diluted earnings per share, net profit or loss for the year attributable to equity shareholders and the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year are adjusted for the effects of all dilutive Potential Equity Shares. The Company uses derivative financial instruments such as forward exchange contracts to hedge its risk associated with foreign currency fluctuations. Accounting policy for forward exchange contracts is given in note (xi) above. Cash and cash equivalents in the cash flow statement comprises cash at bank and in hand and short term investments with an original maturity periods of three months or less. Grants and subsidies from the government are recognized when there is reasonable assurance that the grant/subsidy will be received and all attaching conditions will be complied with. When the grant or subsidy relates to an expenses item, it is recognised as income over the periods necessary to match them on a systematic basis to the costs, which it is intended to compensate. Where the grant or subsidy relates to an asset, its value is deducted from the gross value of the asset concerned in arriving at the carrying amount of the related asset. A contingent liability is a possible obligation that arises from past events whose existence will be confirmed by the occurrence or non–occurrence of one or more uncertain future events beyond the control of the Company or a present obligation that is not recognized because it is not probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation. A contingent liability also arises in extremely rare cases where there is a liability that cannot be recognized because it cannot be measured reliably. The Company does not recognize a contingent liability but discloses its existence in the financial statements. As permitted by the guidance note on the Revised Schedule VI to the Companies Act, 1956, the Company has elected to present earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBIDTA) as a separate line item on the face of Statement of Profit and Loss. The Company measures EBIDTA on the basis of Profit/(Loss) from continuing operation, In its measurement, the Company does not include depreciation and amortization expense, finance costs and tax expense.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS OF THE ZUARI HOLDINGS GROUP FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR 2011-12 1. Basis for preparation of accounts The Consolidated Financial Statements relate to Zuari Holdings Limited (hereinafter referred to as the “Company”) and its subsidiary companies and joint venture companies (collectively hereinafter referred to as the “Zuari Holdings Group”). These financial statements have been prepared to comply in all material respects with the Notified Accounting Standards by Companies(Accounting Standard) Rules, 2006 (as amended) and the relevant provisions of the Companies Act, 1956. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention on an accrual basis. The accounting policies have been consistently applied by the Group. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies I) Presentation and disclosure of financial statements During the year ended March 31, 2012, the revised Schedule VI notified under the Companies Act 1956 has become applicable to the Company, for preparation and presentation of its financial statements. The adoption of revised Schedule VI does not impact recognition and measurement principles followed for preparation of financial statements. However it has significant impact on presentation and disclosures made in the financial statements. Basis of classification of Current and Non Current Assets and liabilities in the balance sheet have been classified as either current or non-current based upon the requirements of revised Schedule VI notified under the Companies Act 1956. An asset has been classified as current if (a) it is expected to be realized in, or is intended for sale or consumption in, the Company’s normal operating cycle ; or (b) it is held primarily for the purpose of being traded; or (c) it is expected to be realized within twelve months after the reporting date; or (d) it is cash or cash equivalent unless it is restricted from being exchanged or used to settle a liability for at least twelve months after the reporting date. All other assets have been classified as non-current. A liability has been classified as current when (a) it is expected to be settled in the Company’s normal operating cycle; or (b) it is held primarily for the purpose of being traded; or (c) it is due to be settled within twelve months after the reporting date; or (d) the Company does not have an unconditional right to defer settlement of the liability for at least twelve months after the reporting date. All other liabilities have been classified as non-current. An operating cycle is the time between the acquisition of assets for processing and their realisation in cash or cash equivalents. Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (Indian GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts, expenses, assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the results of operations during the reporting period. Although these estimates are based upon management’s best knowledge of current events and actions, actual results could differ from these estimates. Principles of Consolidation In the preparation of these Consolidated Financial Statements, investments in Subsidiaries, and Joint Venture entities have been accounted for in accordance with AS 21(Accounting for Consolidated Financial Statements), and AS –27 (Financial Reporting of Interests in Joint Ventures) respectively “notified under the Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules, 2006” (as amended). The Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared on the following basisi. Subsidiary companies have been consolidated on a line-by-line basis by adding together the book values of the like items of assets, liabilities, income and expenses, after eliminating all significant intra-group balances and intra-group transactions and also unrealized profits or losses. Interests in the assets, liabilities, income and expenses of the Joint Ventures have been consolidated using proportionate consolidation method. For the purpose of proportionate consolidation, consolidated financial statements of the Joint Ventures and their subsidiaries have been used. Intra group balances, transactions and unrealized profits/losses have been eliminated to the extent of the Group’s proportionate share.

iii. The difference of the cost to the Company of its investment in Subsidiaries and Joint Ventures over its proportionate share in the equity of the investee company as at the date of acquisition of stake is recognized in the financial statements as Goodwill or Capital Reserve, as the case may be. iv. Minorities’ interest in net profit of consolidated subsidiaries for the year has been identified and adjusted against the income in order to arrive at the net income attributable to the shareholders of the Company. Their share of net assets has been identified and presented in the Consolidated Balance Sheet separately. Where accumulated losses attributable to the minorities are in excess of their equity, in the absence of the contractual obligation on the minorities, the same have been accounted for by the holding company.

ZUARI HOLDINGS LIMITED
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS OF THE ZUARI HOLDINGS GROUP FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR 2011-12 Contd.... v. As far as possible, the consolidated financial statements have been prepared using uniform accounting policies for like transactions and other events in similar circumstances and are presented, to the extent possible, in the same manner as the Company’s stand alone financial statements. Differences in accounting policies have been disclosed separately.

IV.

vi. The financial statements of the group entities used for the purpose of consolidation are drawn up to same reporting date as that of the Company i.e. year ended March 31, 2012. Tangible Assets Fixed assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses, if any. Cost comprises the purchase price and any attributable cost of bringing the asset to its working condition for its intended use. Machinery spares which are specific to a particular item of fixed asset and whose use is expected to be irregular are capitalized as fixed assets. Subsequent expenditure related to an item of fixed asset is added to its book value only if it increases the future benefits from the existing asset beyond its previously assessed standard of performance. All other expenses on existing fixed assets, including day-to-day repair and maintenance expenditure and cost of replacing parts, are charged to the Statement of profit and loss for the period during which such expenses are incurred. Intangibles Intangible assets acquired separately are measured on initial recognition at cost. The cost of intangible assets acquired in an amalgamation in the nature of purchase is their fair value as at the date of amalgamation. Following initial recognition, intangible assets are carried at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Internally generated intangible assets, excluding capitalized development costs, are not capitalized and expenditure is reflected in the Statement of profit and loss in the year in which the expenditure is incurred. Intangible representing computer software are amortized using the Straight Line Method over the estimated useful lives of three years. In case of a subsidiary company, expenditure incurred on development of new products as covered under AS-26 for which future economic benefits will flow over a period of time is amortized, over the estimated useful life of the asset or 5 years whichever is earlier, from the time the new product starts providing economic benefit. In case of a subsidiary company, Goodwill is amortized over a period of twenty years, subject to available surplus for the year before amortization of goodwill, based on the order of Hon’ble High Court of Bombay at Panaji (Goa). i. Depreciation on Fixed Assets (except to the extent stated in para (ii) to (vii) below) is provided using the Straight Line Method as per the useful lives of the fixed assets as estimated by the management which are equal to the corresponding rates prescribed under Schedule XIV to the Companies Act, 1956. For this purpose, a major portion of the plant has been considered as continuous process plant. In case of the Parent Company,a subsidiary company, subsidiary of a joint venture and a joint venture entity, keeping in view the rapid technological advancement and high rate of obsolescence, the useful life of computer hardware and peripherals is considered as three years.

Deferred tax is measured based on the tax rates and the tax laws enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date. Deferred tax assets are recognized only to the extent that there is reasonable certainty that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets can be realized. In situations where the company (within the Zuari Holdings Group), has carry forward of unabsorbed depreciation and tax losses, deferred tax assets are recognized only if there is virtual certainty supported by convincing evidence that such deferred tax assets can be realized against future taxable profits. Unrecognized deferred tax assets of earlier years are re-assessed at each balance sheet date and recognized to the extent that it has become reasonably certain or virtually certain, as the case may be, that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets can be realized. The carrying amount of deferred tax assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date. The company (within the Zuari Holdings Group), writes-down the carrying amount of a deferred tax asset to the extent that it is no longer reasonably certain or virtually certain, as the case may be, that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which deferred tax asset can be realized.

Dividend is recognized when the shareholders’ right to receive payment is established by the reporting date. XVII. Borrowing costs Borrowing cost includes interest, amortization of ancillary costs incurred in connection with the arrangement of borrowings and exchange difference arising from foreign currency borrowings to the extent they are regarded as an adjustment to the interest costs. Borrowing costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or construction of qualifying assets are capitalized to the extent they relate to the period till such assets are ready to be put to use. A qualifying asset is an asset that necessarily takes substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use. Other borrowing costs are recognized as an expense in the period in which they are incurred. A provision is recognized when an enterprise has a present obligation as a result of past event and it is probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation, in respect of which a reliable estimate can be made. Provisions are not discounted to their present value and are determined based on best estimates required to settle the obligation at the balance sheet date. These are reviewed at each balance sheet date and adjusted to reflect the current best estimates. Basic Earnings per Share (EPS) is calculated by dividing the net profit or loss for the year attributable to the equity shareholders (after deducting attributable taxes) by the weighted average number of equity shares outstanding during the year. For the purpose of calculating diluted earnings per share, net profit or loss for the year attributable to equity shareholders and the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year are adjusted for the effects of all dilutive Potential Equity Shares. Some of the entities within the Group use derivative financial instruments such as forward exchange contracts to hedge their risk associated with foreign currency fluctuations. Accounting policy for forward exchange contracts is given in note (XII) above. A contingent liability is a possible obligation that arises from past events whose existence will be confirmed by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events beyond the control of the Company or a present obligation that is not recognised because it is not probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation. A Contingent liability also arises in extremely rare cases where there is liability that cannot be recognised because it cannot be measured reliably. The Company does not recognise a contingent liability but discloses its existence in the financial statements. `Cash and cash equivalents’ in the cash flow statement comprises cash at bank and in hand and short term investments with original maturity periods of three months or less. As permitted by the guidance note on the Revised Schedule VI to the Companies Act, 1956, the Company has elected to present earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBIDTA) as a separate line item on the face of Statement of profit and loss. The Company measures EBIDTA on the basis of Profit/(Loss) from continuing operation, In its measurement, the Company does not include depreciation and amortization expense, finance costs and tax expense.

Due to consequent safety related issues, the Mormugao Port Trust authorities had also stopped clearance of other raw materials for Phosphatic and Potassic Fertilisers. These events caused disruption of 63 days in Urea Production and 20 days in Phosphatic and Potassic Fertilisers production. The pipeline was subsequently repaired, recertified and re-commissioned on 19th, October 2011 and clearance from Mormugao Port Trust authorities for berthing of vessel was received on 1st October, 2011. Operations currently are normal. 51.

XIV: MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSIONS AND ANALYSIS Overview The business of the Company comprises of the Demerged Undertaking that was transferred to it by Zuari Industries Ltd. pursuant to the Scheme of Demerger, which became effective from 21st March 2012. The Company has been engaged in manufacturing facilities in India and the registered office of the Company is at Jai Kisaan Bhawan, Zuarinagar Goa, and its fertilizer plant is situated at Goa, the plant has divisions like NPK A, NPK B, Urea Plant and so on. It is having regional offices at Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and the branch/sales offices located across the country in Pune, Kolhapur, Aurangabad, Amravati, Bangalore, Hubli, Bellary, Vijayawada, Hyderabad, Kurnool, Indoor, Ahmadabad, Jaipur, Thiruvananthapuram, Coimbatore. The Company is also having its corporate office in Delhi. The Company is engaged in business of Manufacturing of fertilizers like urea, and other Complex fertilizers of various grades like 18:46:0, 10:26:26, 12:32:16, and 20:20:0. The Company manufactures specialty fertilizers, seeds, chemicals through its joint venture and subsidiaries. Zuari Fertilisers & Chemicals Limited (ZFCL)., a wholly owned subsidiary of the company is in process of setting up a 600 TPD unit at Mahad in Maharashtra for manufacture of Single Super Phosphate (SSP) ZFCL’s unit is likely to be commissioned in 2013-14 Effective from the Appointed Date to the Effective Date, during the period of reporting, the operations of the Company were run for and on its behalf by Zuari Industries Ltd. on trust. Macro- Economic Outlook In a bid to bridge the widening demand-supply gap and reduce dependence on imports, Government of India has taken several steps aiming to create investor-friendly environment and enhance indigenous capacities in urea. A Group of Ministers (GoM), headed by the then Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee, have approved a new investment policy for the urea sector. Policy seeks to give urea manufacturers a minimum 12% post-tax return on capital. The policy, on getting formal approval of Union Cabinet is expected to spur new urea capacities. Your company will take final decision on proposed Greenfield urea project once the policy gets cabinet nod. Government of India’s recent announcements in budget 2012 to give full exemption to imported equipment for urea projects, abolition of custom’s duty on coal, no issuance of fertilizer bonds towards fertiliser subsidy payments etc. will also have positive impact on growth of fertilizer Industry.

117

Consequent upon passing of bill on food security, requirement of food grains for the country will rise substantially in coming years. The Government of India is gearing up to achieve 4.1% growth in agriculture during twelfth five year plan period. In 2012-13 budget, outlay for agriculture has been increased by 18% to Rs 20,108 crores. The credit target has been raised to Rs 5,75,000 crore and the interest subvention schemes for farmers are continuing. Allocation for irrigation schemes has been raised by 13% to Rs14,242 crores. Special sops have been provided to encourage agricultural research and extension, aiming speedy transfer of technology to farmers’ fields. With stronger support to agriculture sector and thrust on mechanization, there will be consistent rise in demand for fertilizers in the country. Our Company’s Strengths Company has consolidated its market presence by expanding its marketing activities in the new markets of Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. A new regional Office has been opened up at Indore to oversee marketing operations in these states. With over two hundred thirty Jai kisaan Krishi Salahkars in marketing territory and direct linkage with sixty thousand farmers, company is equipped with a strong army for effective implementation of market development programmes in the field. Besides strengthening the brand equity of Jai kisaan products, this programme helps in getting regular feed-back from farmers, thus facilitating timely corrections in market related decisions. Opening of new Agriculture Development laboratory at Tirupati has given further boost to company’s crop health services to customers. This laboratory caters to the company’s emerging markets of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The new laboratory is armed with state-of-the-art technology to provide soil analytical services for major and micronutrients. The soil test reports are now available to farmers on line, thus saving time in delivery of reports. With strong network of dealers, full-scale logistic operations through ports on east and west coast, complete range of agricultural inputs in the product basket, and host of crop health services for farmers, the company is now recognized as provider of full-fledged farming solutions to farming community in the marketing territory. Recent Developments In December 2011, Zuari Global Limited, in joint venture with Mitsubishi Corporation, acquired a 30% stake in Peruvian rock phosphate mine. This investment will be transferred by Zuari Global Limited to the Company. With implementation of Nutrient Based Subsidy (NBS), company’s complex fertilizer segment is expected to benefit due to margin expansion and lower subsidy receivables. The company targets to increase its current 2 mn MT sale to over 3.5 mn MT over the next three years. With host of capital investments over next 3-4 years, led by 1 mn MT NPK plant to be commissioned by FY 2015, debottlenecking of Goa plant from 0.7 mn MT to 1 mn MT by 2013, expansion of Paradeep’s capacity from 1.2 mn MT to 1.5 mn MT and investment in proposed

118

1 mn MT Greenfield Urea project, the company foresees bright returns on its investments in coming years. Marketing Efforts For ease of marketing operations, the company has segmented its marketing area into Primary and Emerging market. Primary market covers the states of Goa, Karnataka and Maharashtra states, while Emerging market comprises of Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat. Country as whole received rainfall from southwest monsoon in June –Sept 2012 which was less by 8% than the 50 year average In your company’s marketing territory, Karnataka and Maharashtra received severely deficit rainfall from southwest monsoon during June-September 2012. Demand for fertilizers took a severe beating in kharif season, on account of deficit rainfall, coupled with steep hike in market prices of NPK complexes. Analysis of Key Business Risks a. Dependency on the Monsoons Indian agriculture is largely dependent on monsoon. Any aberrations in monsoon can prove to be a dampener in demand for fertilizers. This can result in piling up of stocks and large scale competition amongst fertilizer marketers leading to erosion of margins. b. Dependency on Imports of Raw Materials To meet demand supply gap, the company will continue to depend on imports of DAP, MOP and complexes. Any unfounded hike in global prices of fertilizers and delay to signing price agreements with international suppliers can result in non-availability of products in peak season, thus impacting the sales of the company. c. New Investment Policy for Urea The exisiting investment policy for new investments in Urea sector announced by the Government in 2008 has not been able to invite fresh investments owing to several reasons. Based on interactions with various stakeholders the government is planning to come up with a new investment policy which may partly address the concerns raised by the stakeholders. Significant Developments since 31st December, 2011 The Scheme of Demerger became effective on 21st March 2012. Post the effectiveness of Scheme of Demerger, the Company had taken over the Fertilizer Undertaking from Zuari Industries Ltd. Following the Effective Date, the Company has applied for transfer of licenses like Excise registration, Service tax registration and Factory license etc.). All relevant orders taken under the legal entity ‘Zuari Industries Ltd’ for the Fertilizer Undertaking are being changed/need to be changed to ‘Zuari Agro Chemicals Limited.’
