The Textile industry (also known in the United Kingdom and Australia as the Rag Trade) is a term used for industries primarily concerned with the design or manufacture of clothing as well as the distribution and use of textiles Before the manufacturing processes were mechanized, textiles were produced in the home, and excess sold for extra money. Most cloth was made from either wool, cotton, or flax, depending on the era and location. For example, during the late mediaeval period, cotton became known as an imported fibre in northern EuropeThe key British industry at the beginning of the 18th century was the production of textiles made with wool from the large sheep-farming areas in the Midlands and across the country (created as a result of land-clearance and inclosure). Handlooms and spinning wheels were the tools of the trade of the weavers in their cottages, and this was a labor-intensive activity providing employment throughout Britain, with major centres being the West Country; Norwich and environs; and the West Riding of Yorkshire.

composite mills and large integrated firms being their preferred partners. It will thus be essential for SMEs to align with these firms, that can ensure a market for their products and new orders. India's textile sector is the second largest industry after agriculture. It provides employment to about 35 million people. The country's current share in the world textile trade is only 4%, according to the study done by the World Trade Organisation. The Indian government says that it can reach to 8% share by 2010.

Company Profile

History 1930 was a year the world suffered a traumatic depression. Companies across the globe began closing down. In UK and in India the textile industry in particular was in trouble. At about this time, Mahatma Gandhi championed the Swadeshi Movement and at his call, people from all India began boycotting fine and superfine fabrics, which had so far been imported from England. In the midst of this depression one family saw opportunity. The Lalbhais reasoned that the demand for fine and superfine fabrics still existed. And any Indian company that met this demand would surely prosper. The three brothers, Kasturbhai, Narottambhai and Chimanbhai decided to put up a mill to produce this superfine fabric. Next they looked around for state-of-the-art machinery that could produce such high quality fabric. Their search ended in England. The best technology of that time was acquired at a most attractive price. And a company called Arvind mils was born

A Study Of Finacial Preformance Of a Company

Arvind Mills started with a share capital of Rs 2,525,000 ($55,000) in the year 1931. With the aim of manufacturing the high-end superfine fabrics Arvind invested in very sophisticated technology. With 52,560 ring spindles, 2552 doubling spindles and 1122 looms it was one of the few companies in those days to start along with spinning and weaving facilities in addition to full-fledged facilities for dyeing, bleaching, finishing and mercerizing. The sales in the year 1934, three years after establishment were Rs 45.76 lakhs and profits were Rs 2.82 lakhs. Steadily producing high quality fabrics, year after year, Arvind took its place amongst the foremost textile units in the country. In the mid 1980s the textile industry faced another major crisis. With the power loom churning out vast quantities of inexpensive fabric, many large composite mills lost their markets, and were on the verge of closure. Yet that period saw Arvind at its highest level of profitability. There could be no better time, concluded the Management, for a rethink on strategy. The Arvind management coined a new word for it new strategy Renovation. It simply meant a new way of looking at issues, of seeing more than the obvious and that became the corporate philosophy. The national focus paved way for international focus and Arvinds markets shifted from domestic to global, a market that expected and accepted only quality goods. An indepth analysis of the world textile market proved an eye opener. People the world over were shifting from synthetic to natural fabrics. Cottons were the largest growing segments. But where conventional wisdom pointed to popular priced segments, Renovation pointed to high quality premium niches. Thus in 1987-88 Arvind entered the export market for two sections. Denim for leisure and fashion wear. And high quality fabric for cotton shirtings and trousers. By 1991 Arvind reached 1600 million meters of Denim per year and it was the third largest producer of denim in the world. In 1997 Arvind set up a state-of-the-art shirting, gabardine and knits

facility, the largest of its kind in India, at Santej. With Arvinds concern for environment a most modern affluent treatment facility with zero affluent discharge capability was also established. Year 2005 is a watershed year for textiles. With the mulitifiber agreement getting phased out and the disbanding of quotas, international textile trade is poised for a quantum leap. In the domestic market too, the rationalizing of the cenvat chain and the growth of the organized retail industry is likely to make textiles and apparel see an explosive growth. Arvind has carved out an aggressive strategy to verticalize its current operations by setting up world-scale garmenting facilities and offering a one-stop shop service, of offering garment packages, to its international and domestic customers. With the Indian economy poised for rapid growth, Arvind brands with its international licenses of Lee, Wrangler, Arrow and Tommy Hilfiger and its own domestic brands of Flying Machine, Newport, Excalibur and Ruf & Tuf, is setting its vision on becoming the largest apparel brands company in India.

Financial performance: Over the years In the past, the company faced financial difficulties due to a downslide in denim markets and heavy depreciation charges as new projects were commissioned at Santej. Also, these projects were largely financed by high cost debt, which resulted in a huge interest cost burden severely affecting its profitability. The same has been reflected in the FY00 and FY01 results (see table below). It underwent a restructuring exercise in FY02 which was approved by a majority of the lenders and which saw the interest costs reduce by nearly 50% in 1QFY02 itself. The company bounced back in FY03. It reported its highest ever operating profit at Rs 4.3 bn, signifying a CAGR of 108% since FY00. Increased proportion of value added fabrics in Denim and resurgence of demand globally resulted in higher price realizations contributing 63% of the total revenue. However, it could not sustain its stellar performance of FY03 in FY04 largely on account of rising raw material costs (cost of cotton having increased by 11%), high power and fuel costs (cost of naphtha by 5%). Operating margins clocked a negative 15% growth YoY and bottom-line

dipped by 25% YoY. Exports revenue, which contributed 49% of the total revenues, was adversely affected by exchange rate fluctuations, which saw a significant appreciation in the rupee. The company has recently switched over to natural gas from the relatively expensive naphtha for captive power consumption. The benefits of this are expected to accrue from 4QFY05 onwards.

Looking ahead At the current price level of Rs 119, the stock trades at a P/E multiple 23.4 times annualized 9mFY05 earnings. The abolition of the quota system from the start of this year promises to be very challenging for the Indian textiles and apparel industry. The industry is projected to achieve a size of US$ 85 bn by the year 2010 with exports of US$ 40 bn. However, this is easier said than done, as Indian textiles have to compete with lower costing products from China, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and even Pakistan. Going forward, Arvind Mills with its vertically integrated set-up is poised to capitalize on the immense opportunities available for export growth post the quota system and has already undertaken steps to increase its production capacity. However, an appreciating rupee albeit at a slower pace, volatile cotton prices and cyclical nature of denim which has assumed the nature of a commodity are the downside factors to be considered.

Company Strategies
The company's poor financial health in the late 1990s. In the mid 1990s, Arvind Mills' undertook a massive expansion of its denim capacity in spite of the fact that other cotton fabrics were slowly replacing the demand for denim. The expansion plan was funded by loans from both Indian and overseas financial institutions. With the demand for denim slowing down, Arvind Mills found it difficult to repay the loans, and thus the interest burden on the loans shot up. In the late 1990s, Arvind Mills ran into deep financial problems because of its debt burden. As a result, it incurred huge losses in the late 1990s. The case also discusses in detail the Arvind Mills debt-restructuring plan for the long-term debts being taken up in February 2001.

Arvind Mills strategy and Programmes for its Corporate Social Responsibility
17 Seshadripuram Academy Of Business Studies

A Study Of Finacial Preformance Of a Company

Mr Sanjay Lalbhai, Arvind Mills Managing Director has laid the foundation of the companys approach for its Corporate Social Responsibility. The organisations that the company has created for carrying out the programmes for its Corporate Social Responsibility, build their programmes on this foundation. The SHARDA Trust, and the Narottam Lalbhai Rural Development Fund (NLRDF) are the companys two arms for carrying out the Programmes for its Corporate Social Responsibility. Therefore, to appreciate the Programmes of these two organisations, it is essential to grasp the foundation of these Programmes.

Arvind Mills Responsibility








Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is the latest buzzword in India today. Almost everyone is charging the Indian corporations to be alive to their Social Responsibility. But more the noise, less the clarity might be the reality.

We in the Lalbhai Group make a sharp distinction between a corporation being Socially Responsible and a corporation undertaking Social Responsibility. By a corporation being socially responsible, we mean that the corporation must conduct its operations in a socially acceptable wayin ways that honour ethical values and stakeholders concerns, and not merely stockholders interests. Its financial statements should be truthful and it must operate within the law and accepted norms of the society. In other words it must be a good citizen. But when we say that a corporation is undertaking Social Responsibility, we mean that the corporation, besides being a 'good citizen, is also addressing societal issues on its
18 Seshadripuram Academy Of Business Studies

A Study Of Finacial Preformance Of a Company

own volition. We believe that a corporations being a good citizen is a prerequisite for its undertaking Social Responsibility. CSR goes much beyond good citizenship.

This view of CSR is based on our conviction that corporations and society are interdependent. Though distinct, they are not mutually exclusive. They exist together and function together. Social issues affect corporations and the corporations actions in turn affect the society.

Obviously, no corporation can address all the societal issues. It has to make a choice about the societal issues it would address; still more important is the decision about the issues to be left for other organisations to resolve. How should a corporation make its choice? A good criterion for doing so, is what Professor Michael Porter calls the shared value. This suggests that a corporation should address only those societal issues that would create benefit for the society and the corporation both.

Once we accept the view that corporations and the society must exist together and work together, the debate whether corporations should accept Social Responsibility becomes futile. Social Responsibility then gets integrated with the corporations total functioningresults in what Professor Porter calls corporate social integration. Translating CSR into corporate social integration would result in corporations treating CSR as an integral part of its strategy and stop treating it as an act of philanthropy.

Arvinds CSR programmes have been informed by these considerations.
