SECTION II : RISK FACTORS

An investment in PCDs, NCDs and/or Equity Shares involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider
all the information in this Letter of Offer, including the risks and uncertainties described below, before making an
investment in our PCDs, NCDs and/or Equity Shares. If any of the following risks actually occur, our business,
results of operations and financial condition could suffer, the price of our PCDs, NCDs and/or Equity Shares could
decline, and you may lose all or part of your investment. The consolidated financial and other implications of
material impact of risks concerned, unless otherwise specified, wherever quantifiable, have been disclosed in the
risk factors mentioned below.
INTERNAL RISK FACTORS
Our results of operation vary from period to period and may not be indicative of our growth in the future.
Our business is highly dependent upon the constantly changing needs, desires and aspirations of our customers
and any failure on our part to meet their requirements may be critical to our business operations. Our revenues are
difficult to predict and are likely to fluctuate due to a number of factors, many of which are outside of our control.
These factors include:
 changes in our pricing policies or those of our competitors;
 our ability to successfully anticipate and offer products that our customers demand;
 our ability to successfully launch new products on a timely basis to reduce our cost structure, including fixed
costs, to streamline our operations and to reduce product costs;
 the timing of our or our competitors’ new products or product enhancements or any delays in such introductions
by us; and
 macro economic changes affecting the purchasing power of our customers.
For the year ended March 31, 2005 our total income was Rs. 1,17,058.78 lakhs as against Rs. 93,164.21 lakhs for
March 31, 2004. Our past sales growth may not be indicative of our growth in the future. Our operating expenses are
budgeted based on our estimates of revenues. A high percentage of our expenses are fixed, particularly expenses
related to our personnel and facilities, which are fixed in advance for specific periods. Our operating results may
vary significantly from period to period, due to the seasonal nature of the businesses in which we operate. Our
inability to accurately estimate, assume, predict or forecast future trends may adversely affect our brand image,
financial performance and customer satisfaction targets.
It may be difficult for us to predict market trends and the tastes of our customers. Further, we cannot
guarantee the retention or expansion of our customer base.
An important element of our business involves predicting the trends in fashion and the choices of the customer. Our
customer’s choices are also dependent on their geographical location, cultures and customs. Though we constantly
strive to meet the expectations of our customers, we may not be able to meet their fashion and innovation expectations
and may not be able to launch quality products, to address the requirements of our customers. We may also have
to incur additional costs and expenses to study the market, develop suitable products and effectively market the
same. Our competitors who are engaged in similar businesses and target the same audience may be able to
service the needs of such customers better than us. We may assume on the basis of our internal estimates that
certain new lines of business may be profitable. Any inability to gauge market trends, competition and other factors
which affect our businesses could have a serious impact on our brand image, market share and financial performance.
Further, we may be unable to determine the correct time to launch our products in the market and any time or cost
overruns in such launch could adversely affect our results of operations.
We are highly dependent on our watch business for our profitability.
We are highly dependent on our watch business for our profits. The sales income of the watch business accounts
for 52.93% of the total sales income for fiscal 2005. Our watch business could face the threat of eroding margins
and loss of market share as a result of increase in competition.

4
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

Our business is seasonal in nature, with a major portion of our domestic sales arising in the third and fourth
quarter of the financial year.
Our business exhibits seasonality due to the bunching up of festivals like Durga Puja, Diwali, Christmas winter
clearance sale and the marriage season in this period (October-January), in which historically we have reported
higher sales. Our sales in the second half of financial year has constituted 56.15%, 61.47% and 61.12% of the total
sales in fiscal 2005, fiscal 2004 and fiscal 2003 respectively. In certain other geographies, like Europe and South
East Asia we have noticed similar trends, particularly during Christmas. We incur certain fixed operating costs like
employee costs, lease rentals, store-operating costs, distribution and logistics costs irrespective of the consumer
purchasing trends. Any major decline in sales during the festive seasons could have a material adverse effect on
our revenues, profitability and financial condition.
We incur substantial costs on account of advertisements and celebrity endorsements.
Advertising is very critical and a major driver of our sales and revenue, in both the watch and jewellery segments.
We have also entered into agreements with various celebrities for the endorsement of our products. We have
agreements with a leading advertising agency, to provide creative inputs and create campaigns for our products. In
light of the same, we incur substantial costs in advertising and other related aspects. For the financial year ended
March 31, 2005 we had incurred an expenditure of Rs. 7,689.46 lakhs, towards advertising and sales promotion, as
against Rs. 5,982.21 lakhs, incurred for the financial year ended March 31, 2004. As the market becomes more
competitive, we do not forsee any reduction in our expenditure on advertising or its proportion to total expenditure.
Moreover, our agreements with our celebrity brand ambassadors are limited by time and would require renewal on
mutually acceptable commercial terms.
The success of our business is dependent on our distribution and supply chain.
We strive to keep optimum inventory at our stores and distribution centers to control our working capital requirements.
For this a strong supply chain system is essential to ensure availability of merchandise at the stores. Our inability to
manage adequate availability or to determine the right merchandise for the store will affect our business as we are
a customer driven business. We may not be able to always provide the customer with his choice and requirement.
Our distribution chain is also very critical to ensure access to customers across the country. Any disruption or
significant increase in margins for retailers could affect our distribution operations. We make constant efforts to
ensure distribution through our franchisees and regional stockists based on our market survey. However, we cannot
assure you that our distribution chain for watches and jewellery will continue to be efficient or sustainable.
Further, we cannot assure you that certain external agents like courier agents who carry our products, will be able
to meet our time schedules or expectations. Any inefficiency in the supply or distribution chain could adversely
affect our business results and financial performance.
We rely on certain vendors and suppliers for various products that we require as part of our business, over
whom we may not be able to exercise any control.
We are highly dependent on certain external suppliers of raw materials, components, precision equipment and
other inputs required in our business, especially in the watches and jewellery segment. We source quartz movements,
dials, electronic circuit boards, casings, links, straps from certain manufacturers to meet and/or supplement our
internal resources and requirements for the watches segment. We source precious metals like gold, silver, and
precious stones like diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, rubies, zircons from bullion banks in India and certain other
individual/corporate suppliers. Further, since our jewellery distribution network involves marketing high value items,
we place emphasis on appropriate packaging to ensure that our products are safe and free from any defect. In the
precision engineering business, we source special raw materials for aerospace applications from overseas locations.
We have also engaged indigenous vendors to carry out special processes such as plating, anodization and sub
zero treatment. While we believe, these external suppliers supply products that meet our need and requirements,
including levels of promptness, quality and quantity specified by us, we may not be able to exercise any control over
these contracting parties in case of any breach of their contractual obligations or the prescribed performance
parameters. The loss or expiry of these contracts or our inability to renew them or negotiate contracts with other
providers at comparable rates could harm our business. Also, any delays or non conformance to quality requirements
by our suppliers will impact our ability to meet our customers’ requirements and thus impact our business continuity
in the long term.

5
The people visiting our showrooms, retail outlets including malls and large retail chain stores are critical
for our success.
Our showrooms (whether Company owned or franchised) should be strategically located to ensure that they are
easily accessible to our customer base. Public places such as malls, our showrooms and various other franchised
stores where our products may be located could be likely targets for pilferage or unforeseen acts of violence
(including terrorist acts and rioting), which may impact our business. Any theft or violence in such public places
could cause damage to life and property, and also create a negative impression in the mind of the customer and
their willingness to visit public places. It is impossible for us to quantify the financial impact of such a risk.
Competition is increasing in the markets that we operate.
We face severe competition in the business areas in which we operate. Significant increase in competition in the
markets in which we sell our products may erode our market share and force us to reduce our prices, which could
adversely affect our business and results of operation.
Finished watch products are subject to competition from domestic manufacturers, luxury Swiss watchmakers and
inexpensive watches made by the unorganized sector, at various price points and targeted at different consumer
markets. Competition from low cost players, particularly manufacturers from China and Hong Kong who have lower
cost structures and enjoy similar benefits, enables them to compete significantly especially on price. The unorganized
sector, mainly cheap imports and fakes, accounts for a substantial portion of the watch sales in the Indian market.
We also compete at the national level with brands like Maxima and Timex. International companies having several
renowned brands and supported by strong manufacturing and marketing skills, past financial performance, advertising
budgets and marketing skills are slowly entering the Indian market. These companies include Casio, Citizen, Esprit,
Giordano, Omega, Rado, Seiko, Swatch, Tag Heuer, and Tissot. The watch industry is also subject to competition
from other products that include a time keeping function, including mobile phones.
The competition in the jewellery sector is primarily from the local traditional family jewellers and a few national or
international players. We believe that the main competitive factors in our markets are price, service quality, sales
and marketing skills, the ability to develop customized products with suitable technological and industry expertise.
We may not be able to compete against the unorganized sector and the local players, since we do not intend to
compromise on the standards of our exquisite designs, the purity of precious metals and studded jewellery used
and the overall high quality of products that we assure our customers. Further, our offerings may be priced at a
premium compared to our competitors, especially in view of our fixed overheads and national scale of operations.
We face competition from regional players including Mehrasons Jewellers (Delhi), Tribhuvandas Bhimji Zaveri
(Mumbai), B.C. Sen and P.C. Chandra (Kolkata), G.R. Thanga Maligai (Chennai) and C. Krishnaiah Chetty
(Bangalore). We expect competition in the branded jewellery market to increase due to the high potential for growth
and demand for branded jewellery. Certain international players like Damas have also entered the Indian markets
with their range of offerings.
Local competition in the precision engineering industry is mainly from a few small and medium enterprises who
have limited exposure to export markets and to some extent from established manufacturers like Larsen & Toubro
Limited and Godrej and Boyce Limited.
Our reputation and the quality of our products is a major driver in our business.
We are part of the Tata group of companies and share the same values and high quality standards as the other
companies in the Tata group. We rely extensively on our standard operating procedures and internal systems for
the effective functioning of our manufacturing processes and to ensure the quality of our products from the
manufacturing stage to the final stage of sale to the customer. However, our products, especially watches and
studded jewellery may contain undetected flaws, which could result in claims against us and damage our reputation,
regardless of our responsibility for such a failure or defect. Any deviation from our internal procedures or if we are
unable to meet the high quality and precision products expected from us by the public, may adversely affect our
reputation and brand image and it may be difficult to regain customer confidence thereafter.

6
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

We place significant reliance on our proprietary intellectual property to develop our products and services.
We will lose our competitive edge if any of our competitors appropriate such intellectual property, which we
may not be able to adequately protect. We may be subject to certain intellectual property infringement and/
or unauthorized parties may infringe upon or misappropriate our intellectual property.
We rely on a combination of trade secrets, trademarks, copyright laws, patents, license agreements, confidentiality
and non-disclosure agreements with employees and third parties and other contractual provisions imposed on our
consulting partners, designers and other to protect our proprietary intellectual property rights. We cannot assure
you that these protections will adequately protect our proprietary rights or that our competitors will not independently
develop products that are equivalent to ours. We cannot assure you that our proprietary intellectual property rights,
particularly those arising from our watch and jewellery manufacturing and marketing operations in India or overseas
are not or will not be infringed or copied by our competitors or other persons. Such competitors (particularly from the
unorganized sector) or other persons may produce, imitate or replicate identical, similar or equivalent products and/
or services at a much lower cost and with minimal effort, and such infringement could adversely affect our sales and
results of operations.
Although we believe that our intellectual property rights do not infringe on the intellectual property rights of any other
party, infringement claims may be asserted against us in the future. If we become liable to third parties for infringing
their intellectual property rights, we could be required to pay substantial damages and be forced to develop non-
infringing technology or products or obtain a license for the same. There are currently no pending or threatened
intellectual property claims against us.
Our product development cycle is long.
Our product development cycle for watches, jewellery and precision engineering is long due to the various processes
and testing that a product has to pass through before the decision for commercial production is taken. We spend a
considerable amount of time and money in order to effectively market our offerings, including by way of internal
discussions with customers, design, prototyping and pilot marketing efforts to gauge customer expectations and
demands. These efforts may not necessarily result in our products being preferred by such customers. In such
cases, we may have incurred substantial expenses during the product sales cycle, which we may not be able to
recoup.
We rely on our existing machinery for our production purposes and the failure of any of these machines will
slowdown production affecting our business cycle.
We rely extensively on our machines situated at our various facilities for the manufacture of various components
used in our businesses. These machines though old are currently operational and are being maintained and serviced
internally. In most cases, the original equipment manufacturers are either no longer existing, have been acquired or
have upgraded their products without providing technical support for the earlier range. The parts required for these
machines may no longer be available. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the continuous performance of these machines.
Any breakdown in their performance may have a significant effect on our production cycle.
We may not be able to increase our current production capacity to meet increased demand for our products.
Most of our factories, particularly those engaged in the manufacture/assembly of watches and for precision engineering
are running near peak capacity, if not full capacity. We may have to expand or set up new facilities to be able to
meet any increase in demand. If we are unable to meet the increase in demand for our products, we may not be able
to achieve our production targets or market expectations and any delays may adversely affect our business operations
and financial performance.
We rely extensively on the IT systems that have been implemented and any failure of the same may affect
our business.
We have entered into enterprise resource planning software arrangements with SAP and Oracle for our watches
and jewellery business, respectively. This enables us to facilitate the dissemination of information effectively and to
provide connectivity across our various business functions. As our business processes are IT enabled, any failure
in our IT systems or loss of connectivity or any loss of data arising from such failure can impact us adversely. The
financial impact of the aforesaid risk cannot be reasonably quantified or predicted. We may not be able to keep
abreast with the latest technologies and hence some of our existing technologies may become obsolete, perform
less efficiently as compared to the newer and better technologies. Further, the costs of upgrading or implementing

7
such technologies, upgrading our existing equipment or even expanding capacity could be significant and could
adversely affect the results of our operations.
We currently carry out various operations in relation to our business from leased premises and the non
renewal or termination of any of these leases shall severely affect our operations.
Majority of our manufacturing/assembly facilities in relation to watches, jewellery and precision engineering are on
leased premises. Certain strategically located and commercially viable showrooms from which we operate have
also been taken on lease. In the event that the existing leases are not renewed or terminated by the lessor(s) for any
reason, we would not only have to incur substantial expenditure in relocating our operations, but may also lose
revenues during the interim period. Further, the owners of certain of our leased showrooms located in New Delhi
have received notice from the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) informing the owners that the buildings in
which the showrooms are located are unauthorized contructions. The owners have filed their responses to these
notices and are awaiting the response of the MCD. In the event that we are required to relocate our showrooms due
to termination of the lease agreements, we may possibly lose certain customers who may not visit the new location
of the showroom.
We have entered into and in the future may enter into strategic partnerships technical collaborations and
other investments, some of which may not have been successful or face other risks associated therewith,
including identifying opportunities, effectively utilising the benefits arising therefrom.
In 1992, we invested in a joint venture company, Timex Watch Limited, for manufacturing Timex watches, a leading
American watch brand. The sales, distribution and marketing of Timex watches were also undertaken by us. However,
due to divergence of interests, we have fully exited from the joint venture company. Timex is now a majority stake
holder in Timex Watch Limited.
In 2003, we entered into a technical know how and licensing agreement to import, manufacture and sell, Tommy
Hilfiger watches in India. We commenced marketing operations from 2004 onwards. However, we cannot assure
you that we will be successful in this arrangement.
In the future, we may enter into similar arrangements, which may be unsuccessful or could disrupt our ongoing
business, distract our management and employees and adversely affect our results of operations. We propose to
enter into commercial arrangements with respect to prescription eyewear retailing as an extension of our Fastrack
sunglasses. As on the date of this Letter of Offer, we have not entered into any letter of intent, or definitive commitment
or agreement for any material strategic acquisitions, partnerships, joint venture, technical collaborations, except as
stated elsewhere in this Letter of Offer.
Any inability to manage our growth could impact our profitability.
In fiscal 2005, 2004 and 2003, our total income have grown to Rs. 1,17,058.78 lakhs, Rs. 93,164.21 lakhs and
Rs. 75,137.41 lakhs respectively, representing a compounded annual growth rate of 27.90%. We expect our growth
to place significant demands on our management and other resources, including on our Subsidiaries and branch
offices in various international jurisdictions. We may also set up new manufacturing facilities. Continued expansion
increases the challenges involved in recruiting, training and retaining skilled technical, sales and management
personnel; adhering to our high quality and process execution standards; and maintaining high levels of customer
satisfaction. Any inability to manage and integrate such growth may have an adverse effect on our business, results
of operation and financial condition.
The high price of gold and other precious metals may affect our stock price and sales of jewellery.
The price of gold and silver has risen steeply in recent times to reach an all time high of US$ 575.35 and US$ 9.93
per troy ounce respectively. Though this seems to have had a positive effect on our stock prices there may be a
price correction in the near future which could adversely affect our stock holders. In addition, the sudden peaking of
gold and silver rates may adversely affect the sale of such jewellery at our showrooms. Further, we cannot assure
you that the prices of these precious metals will not continue to rise or that their natural source will not be depleted
or become a restricted commodity. Similarly, we may have no control on the value of our Equity Shares/ NCDs and/
or the sale of jewellery if the price of these precious metals were to fall dramatically in the future. Past performance
is not an indication of future trends.

TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

There are restrictions on the import of gold into India.


Currently, under the laws of India, there are certain restrictions on the import of gold, including restrictions on import
of gold from overseas banks and single borrower restrictions. We cannot assure you that these restrictions will be
removed or liberalised. We have currently entered into contractual/loan arrangements with the Bank of Nova Scotia,
Corporation Bank and the State Bank of India in order to procure the metal for our business requirements of the
Jewellery Division. In view of the historical rise in the price of gold, we cannot assure that we will be able to secure
such loans on same, if not more favourable terms in the future. Further, we cannot assure that we will be able to
source sufficient quantities of high quality gold at a reasonable price and from recognised dealers.
Changes over time in the taxation rates on our products and the raw materials, will continue to affect our
profits.
We have been in the business of manufacturing watches for two decades. Over the years, there has been an
increase in the rate of taxation of our products and raw materials that we require. This has affected us in the past
and may continue to have a significant impact on our business. For instance, the rate of excise duty payable on
watches has increased from 2% in 1989 to 16% in this financial year. The Central Government has with effect from
fiscal 2005 imposed an excise duty of 2% on branded jewellery, which duty would be leviable if the brand name or
the trade name, is indelibly affixed or embossed on the article of jewellery itself. It has been clarified that hallmarking
cannot be considered as branding for the purpose of excise levy. As our jewellery is sold under the brand name of
‘Tanishq’, we are liable to pay this excise duty. Our competitors may not have to pay this excise duty for their
unbranded products. Further, there is no certainty that the rate of excise duty on branded jewellery will not be
increased in the years to come.
The Indian jewellery industry is predominantly unorganized and there is no compulsory quality certification
mechanism within the sector.
The jewellery business in India is unorganized and we are highly dependent on agents and sellers for our supply of
diamonds and other precious stones. We rely on certain trained professionals to grade and sort the diamonds that
we procure for our business. Any interruptions or disruptions of such supply, will severely affect our watches and
jewellery, business especially in those offerings where we rely extensively on diamonds. Further, the Indian jewellery
industry does not have to comply with any compulsory certification nor does it benefit from any statutorily recognized
rating agency, which can certify the quality/purity of the precious metal and/or stone. Unlike in Europe and USA,
hallmarking of jewellery is a voluntary process in India. In order to maintain our high quality standards, we may not
be able to effectively compete against unscrupulous competitors.
We may not be able to hire and retain qualified design personnel; large portion of our designs are outsourced.
Our ability to create designs and manufacture products, which meet the customer’s expectations, depends largely
on our ability to attract, train, motivate and retain qualified and experienced design professionals, particularly jewellery
and watch designers. Our designers in engineering design, particularly those who use specialized software are also
important for our business. Competition for such special skills in the watch, jewellery and precision engineering
industries is intense. In addition, we engage the services of several freelance and external designs for certain
projects. We cannot assure you that we will be able to protect the design rights which accrue or that this external
talent pool will not be utilized by our competitors for their own projects.
We depend on the talent and experience of our senior and key managerial personnel.
We are significantly dependent on the experience and continued efforts of our senior and key managerial personnel.
we maintain directors and officers liability insurance for our directors. The loss of one or more members of our
senior managerial or key technical personnel would impact our ability to maintain and grow our revenues. We may
be unable to identify, hire or retain the right personnel who meet the above criteria, or we may have trouble maintaining
the current values and culture as we go onto become a larger company. Our culture and values is crucial to our
business plan, and failure to maintain that culture could adversely affect our business and results of operations. The
attrition rate for the period from April 1, 2005 to November 30, 2005 for employees in the LI to L5 level was 8% and
for the employees L6 to senior management was 5.6%. Attrition is calculated as the number of people leaving
divided by manpower as on date plus people who have resigned during the year. Any increase in our attrition rates,
particularly with respect to experienced personnel may adversely affect our growth strategy and significantly impact
our resource management.

9
Certain customer contracts entered into in relation to precision engineering contain clauses that impose
severe penalties on us in the event of any breach of the contract by us.
We have entered into contracts with certain customers in the automobile or other sectors for supply of specific
parts. Under such contracts numerous conditions have been imposed on us, including compliance with prescribed
product and quality specifications. Any failure to comply with such terms will result in our being liable to indemnify
the customer in relation to costs that may be associated with a recall and/or field service action and for all costs
arising from the losses incurred by such customer. These contracts also contain product warranties of up to 36
months. Any failure on our part to comply with any of the terms of such contracts may result in monetary penalties
being imposed on us and may also lead to the termination of such contracts. Further, certain of our contracts require
us to reduce prices with every passing year. Due to such contractual stipulations we are under constant pressure to
reduce costs. However, we may not be able to effectively reduce cost as it may affect our results of operations.
There may be a lack of international awareness for our watches and jewellery products.
We began our foray into the international markets in 1992. We formally started marketing our watches and jewellery
products through our International Business Division in 2002. In order to succeed, we will have to develop an
international sales capability for these products and support the products brand and image among the overseas
consumers and retailers. In international markets we compete with various international and local brands which are
present in that region. Penetrating the international market will involve a large investment in brand building and
advertising. We cannot guarantee that in the event we do incur such costs, it will provide us benefits in the long run.
In this behalf we have incurred losses and written off certain investments made to our Subsidiaries/Associates
located overseas in the past. Further, an international customer may be reluctant or unwilling to pay a higher price
for a product designed and/or manufactured in India as against any of our competitor brands and products. We may
not be able to achieve the sales volume, we have achieved in India, especially since the customer base and brand
perceptions will vary significantly. We cannot be certain that even after carefully assessing and pricing our products,
we will be able to market our products effectively.
Our international operations expose us to complex management, legal, tax and economic risks.
We have Subsidiaries and Associates in 6 countries outside India. Our revenues from our international operations
as a percentage of total revenues for fiscal 2005, fiscal 2004 and fiscal 2003 was 8.28%, 8.98% and 6.03%
respectively. As a result of our expanding international operations we are subject to certain risks inherent to
establishing and conducting operations in international markets, including:
 Cost structures and cultural and language factors, associated with managing and coordinating our global
operations;
 Compliance with a wide range of foreign laws, including immigration, labour and tax laws;
 Restrictions on repatriation of profits and capital; and
 Potential difficulties with respect to protection of our intellectual property rights in some countries.
We have a large unionised labour force operating in our factories and assembly units.
We employ several workmen at our various factories who are involved in the watch and jewellery manufacturing
processes. Our work force in the factories are unionised and we have recognised one trade union, which is not
affiliated with any political party. We entered into an agreement with our trade union in relation to the settlement of
wages, which became due for renewal in January 2006. We are currently in the process of initiating negotiations
with the trade union for renewal of the agreement and until a new settlement agreement is entered into we shall
continue to abide by the earlier agreement. In 2003, due to a breakdown in wage negotiations, we had to shut down
operations temporarily for around 67 days. In the past, we have also dismissed certain employees for manhandling
a senior official of our Company. We cannot assure you that such circumstances will not arise again. We currently
believe that our employees do not indulge in any activity that may be prejudicial to the interests of the Company, but
we cannot guarantee that they will continue to act in the same manner. Any failure on our part to effectively manage
them could significantly affect the business and operations of our Company. We may also be forced into discussions
with the trade union in relation to certain matters, which may not be beneficial for the Company.
India has stringent labour legislations that protect the interests of workers, including legislation that prescribes
detailed procedures for dispute resolution and employee removal and imposes certain financial obligations on
employers upon retrenchment. A large number of our employees who work in the factories are subject to the various

10
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

benefits available under these labour legislations. The wage settlement agreement with our trade unions expired in
January 2006. We cannot assure you that the settlement agreement will be renewed without any labour unrest or
that the agreement will be renewed on terms favourable to us.
If we improperly handle any of the dangerous materials or if any accidents befall our employees during the
course of our manufacturing processes, we could face significant liabilities that could lower our profits.
We handle certain combustible materials. If improperly handled or subject to unsuitable conditions, these materials
could hurt our employees and other persons, cause damage to our properties and/or harm to the environment.
Further, any accident on the shop floor during the manufacturing process could injure our employees, damage
expensive equipment and/or result in disruption of our business. This could adversely affect our business and
results of operations.
We may not be fully insured for losses we may incur.
We rely on insurance to mitigate certain risks. We have in the past and may in the future choose not to obtain
insurance for certain risks. We have insured our employees, stocks, plant and machinery. For more details on our
insurance coverage please refer to the section titled “Business - Insurance” on page 71 of this Letter of Offer.
Further, our jewellery business involves manufacturing and transportation of high value items, which may not be
sufficiently insured during transit. We cannot assure you that such insurance will always cover all of our assets.
Although we have made attempts to limit and mitigate our liability for damages arising from negligent acts, errors or
omissions through contractual provisions, the limitations of liability set forth in our contracts, particularly in our
precision engineering business, may not be enforceable in all instances or may not protect us from liability for
damages. Changes in our insurance policies, including premium increases or the imposition of large deductible or
co-insurance requirements, could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial condition
and cash flows.
Loan agreements that we have entered into with certain banks and financial institutions contain certain
restrictive covenants.
Our working capital requirements have been and are expected to continue to be extensive. In order to finance our
business, we have entered into secured and/or unsecured loan arrangements with certain banks and financial
institutions. Some of these agreements contain restrictive covenants, which may require us to seek their prior
permission for specific activities, including alteration of our capital structure, incurring expenditure on new projects,
entering into any merger / amalgamation / restructuring and guarantee of obligations on behalf of other companies.
Our secured loan agreements have been secured either by way of hypothecation of certain movable assets, current
assets (including book debts and inventories) or by way of an equitable mortgage of immovable properties. As of
September 30, 2005, the amount outstanding on all our borrowings is Rs. 36,472.31 lakhs. For more details on our
borrowings, please refer to the section titled “Description of Certain Indebtedness” beginning on page 240 of this
Letter of Offer. We may need to obtain additional sources of funding, which may include equity, debt or convertible
debt financing, in the future. A high level of debt, failure to meet the covenants in the loan agreement and poor
business performance could materially affect our ability to fund the operation of our business. If operating cash
flows are not sufficient to meet our expenses as they become due, we may be required to delay or reduce capital
expenditures or the development of new products, be forced to sell or dispose of our assets and/or may have to
forego potential business opportunities.
Our Promoters and other principal shareholders will continue to control us.
Our Promoters, being TIDCO and Tata Sons Limited (and other companies of the Tata group) hold an aggregate of
52.89% of our pre-Issue equity share capital. They currently exercise substantial control over us and inter alia have
the power to elect and remove a majority of our Directors and/or determine the outcome of certain important proposals,
which require the specific approval of our Board of Directors or Shareholders. Assuming the Promoters subscribe to
the entire Issue, they will collectively hold 52.89% of the fully diluted post Issue equity capital. We cannot assure
you that the interest of our Promoters and other major shareholders will not conflict with the interests of other
shareholders, including yourselves.
We may issue fresh shares, which may result in dilution of Investor shareholding in our Company.
Any future equity offerings by us, sale by significant shareholders and/or the issue of Equity Shares pursuant to
grant, vesting and exercise of stock options under any future employee stock option plans or by way of an induction

11
of strategic investors, may lead to a dilution of Investor shareholding in our Company and/or affect the market price
of our Equity Shares and/or NCDs.
We have not been able to meet certain projections made in our last rights issue.
In October 1992 the Company made a rights issue of 1,46,90,900 Equity Shares of Rs. 10 each for cash at a
premium of Rs.40 per Equity Share, aggregating Rs 7,345.45 lakhs. The Company was unable to meet the projections
given in the Letter of Offer. The details are as follows:
Particulars Financial Year 1993 Financial Year 1994 Financial Year 1995
Projection Actual Projection Actual Projection Actual
Sales & Other Income 21,722.00 19,281.00 35,482.00 22,881.00 45,928.00 28,394.00
Net Profit 1,564.00 1,087.00 2,605.00 1,909.00 3,243.00 2,509.00
The main reason for the difference between the projections and the actual achievement is the fact that the jewellery
manufacturing factory in Hosur commenced production only in the first quarter of 1994-95 as against the originally
proposed commissioning date, third quarter of 1993-94 and it took longer than expected for stabilization of production.
Thus, both sales and profits in relation to the business of the Company were affected. For more information please
refer to section titled “Promise versus Performance” beginning on page 53 of this Letter of Offer.

TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

For the six months ended September 30, 2005 and in fiscal 2005, fiscal 2004 and fiscal 2003 we have made a
provision for diminution in value of investments in our Subsidiaries aggregating to Rs. Nil, Rs. 244 lakhs, Rs. 1,000
lakhs and Rs. 1,000 lakhs respectively. Further, for the six months ended September 30, 2005 and in fiscal 2005,
fiscal 2004 and fiscal 2003 we have made a provision of doubtful loans and advances to certain of our Associates
aggregating Rs. 1,773 lakhs, Rs. 3,256 lakhs, Rs. 1,500 lakhs and Rs. Nil respectively.
Though, we cannot provide any assurance that these Subsidiaries and Associates will be profitable or that our
investments will be recovered, we propose to continue funding working capital requirement of these Subsidiaries
and Associates, at current levels including by way of loans and/or equity infusion. The financial performance of
these Subsidiaries and Associates currently adversely affects our results of operation and financial conditions.
We have a number of contingent liabilities, and our profitability could be adversely affected if any of these
contingent liabilities materialise.
Our contingent liabilities as of September 30, 2005 include guarantees given by banks amounting to Rs. 861 lakhs
and claims against the Company not acknowledged as debt viz. sales tax, customs, excise and income tax matters
amounting to Rs. 3,985.77 lakhs. If any of these contingent liabilities materialise, they could adversely affect our
profitability. For more details of our contingent liabilities, please refer to the section titled “Outstanding Litigation and
Defaults” on page 221 of this Letter of Offer.
The funds raised from this Issue will not be appraised by any bank or financial institution.
The objects, including for which funds are being raised in this Issue will be deployed, as stated in the section titled
“Objects of the Issue” beginning on page 37 of this Letter of Offer. These amounts however have not been appraised
by a bank or a financial institution, and the estimates stated herein, are as per our internal assessments and
calculations. We are currently in a sound financial condition and with strong liquidity. However, any unplanned
major increase in the fund requirements for the same, may impact the financial performance of the Company. The
deployment of funds arising from the proceeds of the Issue will be monitored by the Audit Committee of the Board.
Our Company, Subsidiaries, Associates, Promoters and the top five listed companies promoted by Tata
Sons Limited are involved in certain legal proceedings in India.
Our Company, Subsidiaries, Associates, Promoters along with the top five listed companies promoted by Tata
Sons Limited are involved in certain legal proceedings and claims in India in relation to certain civil, criminal,
taxation and other matters. These legal proceedings are pending at different levels of adjudication before various
courts and tribunals. We have in the past and may in the future need to make provisions in our financial statements
in relation to certain legal proceedings, which could increase our expenses and our current liabilities. We cannot
assure you that these legal proceedings will be decided in our favour. Any adverse decision may have a significant
effect on our business and results of operations.
There are 4 civil cases initiated against us for an amount aggregating to around Rs. 5,20,000 (including interest as
applicable). Further in Suit No. 2462 of 1995 there is a demand of Rs. 15,91,200 in addition to a monthly payment
of Rs. 397,800 or prevailing market rate of rent (in addition to interest at the rate of 24% per annum), from the date
of the filing of the suit till the date of delivery of possession of the premises. Also, 4 criminal cases have been
initiated against us for an amount aggregating to around Rs. 1,70,450.
There are 5 civil cases initiated by us for an amount aggregating to around Rs. 65,43,850 and 2 criminal cases
initiated by us for an amount aggregating around Rs. 3,20,000.
In addition to these there are 5 direct tax cases and 19 indirect tax cases involving the Company. The Company has
also initiated 1 arbitration proceeding.
There are also various matters pending at district and state consumer forums that have been filed against the
Company, amounting to approximately Rs. 7,83,152. These matters are in the nature of the disputes wherein the
customers of the Company have either sought a replacement of watches purchased or have in addition to the same
also sought monetary compensation.
For more information regarding the legal proceedings involving the Company, Subsidiaries, Associates, Promoters
and top five listed companies promoted by Tata Sons Limited, please refer to the section titled “Outstanding Litigation
and Defaults” beginning on page 221 of this Letter of Offer.

13
We have filed a writ petition in the High Court of Uttaranchal, challenging the notification issued by the
Government which has revoked certain excise benefits provided to us.
Pursuant to a Government of Uttaranchal notification in 2003 granting certain excise benefits, we set up a watch
assembly facility in Dehradun, Uttaranchal. Subsequently, vide another state notification in 2005 this benefit was
withdrawn. Upon such withdrawal a duty of over Rs. 1,431 lakhs will become payable to the excise authorities. We
have filed a writ petition before the Hon‘ble High Court of Uttaranchal and contested this withdrawal on the basis
that the Government of Uttaranchal is estopped under the doctrine of promissory estoppel from confiscating a
benefit that has been legally passed under a statute. The Hon’ble High Court has passed an interim order staying
the proceedings of the excise authorities. The Hon‘ble High Court has observed in the interim order that there is no
specific reason for excluding the land on which the Company’s assembly facility is located from the notification
granting the exemption and has directed the Government of Uttaranchal to continue to extend the benefit of exemption
from excise duty under notification number 50/2003-CE dated June 10, 2003 to the Company until disposal of the
writ petition. We cannot assure you of the outcome of the proceedings and in the event that the High Court does not
uphold our contention, we will be liable to pay the amount due to the excise authorities.
Certain taxation matters may be challenged by Indian and foreign regulators, which may subject us to
higher taxes and adversely affect our earnings.
We are subject to direct and indirect taxes, in India and various foreign jurisdictions, including income tax, sales tax,
value-added tax and service tax. In the ordinary course of our business, we have entered into several inter-company
transactions across jurisdictions. We believe that we operate in compliance with all applicable transfer pricing laws
in these jurisdictions. However, there can be no assurance that we will continue to be found to be operating in
compliance with transfer pricing laws, or that such laws will not be amended, which may require us to change our
transfer pricing practices or operating procedures. Any modification of transfer pricing laws may result in a higher
overall tax liability to us and adversely affect our earnings and results of operations.
Consents and authorisations under certain environmental legislations have not been renewed.
Under the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 and the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution)
Act, 1974 we are required to obtain annual renewal of the consent orders issued thereunder. In relation to our
manufacturing units located at Hosur we had obtained consent orders for 2004 -2005 from the Tamil Nadu Pollution
Control Board (TNPCB) under these legislations. However, pursuant to an inspection conducted by the TNPCB in
March 2005 the TNPCB observed that conditions imposed in the consent order issued under the Water (Prevention
and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974 has been contravened. Pursuant to such inspection the TNPCB issued a show
cause notice to the Company on June 28, 2005. The Company has responded to the show cause notice and has
provided a bank guarantee to the TNPCB on October 6, 2005. However, TNPCB vide its letter dated March 7, 2006
has informed the Company that its watch manufacturing unit at Hosur has failed to comply with the terms and
conditions of the bank guarantee within the stipulated time. TNPCB has therefore decided to invoke 50% of the
bank guarantee and has directed the Company to make a payment of Rs. 25 lakhs. For more details please refer to
section titled “Outstanding Litigation and Defaults- Potential Litigation” on page 226 of this Letter of Offer. We are
awaiting final resolution of this matter, due to which our applications made for renewal of consent orders under the
Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981 and the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1974 are
still pending with the TNPCB.
We require certain approvals or licenses in the ordinary course of business, and the failure to obtain them
in a timely manner or at all may adversely affect our operations.
We require certain approvals, licenses, registrations and permissions for conducting our business in India and
various foreign jurisdictions, some of which may have expired and for which we may have either made or are in the
process of making an application for obtaining the approval or its renewal. For more information, see the section
titled “Government Approvals” beginning on page 237 of this Letter of Offer. If we fail to obtain any of these approvals
or licenses, or renewals thereof, in a timely manner, or at all, our business operations may be adversely affected.
We have not placed any orders for plant and machinery to be purchased out of the proceeds of this Issue.
We intend to use the proceeds of the Issue for the capital expenditures described in the section titled “Objects of the
Issue”. As of the date of this Letter of Offer, we have not entered into any definitive agreements to utilize such
proceeds or for the procurement of the equipment/ machinery required to meet the objects of the Issue. The

14
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

equipments required are standard and are easily available from various vendors in India and overseas. Our estimates
are based on the prevailing market price. We have entered into agreements regarding delivery or price for these
equipments. Any inability to procure the said equipment may cause a delay in implementation of the objects. For
more details refer to section titled “Objects of the Issue” on page 37 of this Letter of Offer.
Our cash flow has been negative for the six months ended September 30, 2006.
For the six months ended September 30, 2005, we had a negative cash flow of Rs. 410.96 lakhs due to the surge in
inventories because of the upcoming festive season. We cannot assure you that a similar situation will not arise in
the future.
EXTERNAL RISK FACTORS
A slowdown in economic growth in India could cause our business to suffer.
The Indian economy has shown sustained growth over the last few years. The estimate of the Gross Domestic
Product (GDP) released by the Central Statistical Organisation for fiscal 2005 is 6.9%. In fiscal 2004, fiscal 2003
and fiscal 2002, the GDP was 8.5%, 4.0% and 5.8%, respectively. Any adverse impact on the Indian economy may
have a considerable impact on the consumer spending power. Any impact on this spending power of the customer
will result in lower sales, thereby affecting our margins and our results of operations.
We are liable to pay taxes under various Indian laws and are availing of certain tax benefits which is offered
to it in its area of location. Our profitability will be affected if the tax benefits granted are reduced or withdrawn.
There are a variety of taxes and other levies imposed by the Government of India and/or the states in which the
factory or the assembly units are located. These may include corporate tax, indirect taxes (which include customs
duties, excise duty, central and state sales tax and other levies), income tax, value added tax, entry tax imposed by
various municipalities throughout India, turnover tax, service tax and any other tax as may be imposed by the
concerned government of the concerned state or India from time to time. In addition to the above, each state in India
has different local taxes and levies including sales tax, octroi, which require a more comprehensive and enhanced
tax planning and structuring for our Company. Any changes in these local taxes and levies may impact our profitability.
Force majeure events, acts of violence, terrorist attacks and or war involving India, or any country could
adversely affect the financial markets and result in a loss of client confidence and adversely affect our
business.
We have our factory situated at Hosur and various other assembly units, spread across India. But we cannot
provide various factors which are not within our control and therefore it is impossible to prepare for. The blasts
during the Diwali season in Delhi on October 29, 2005, the tsunami, which affected several parts of South East Asia,
including India and Sri Lanka on December 26, 2004, the terrorist attacks, such as the ones that occurred in New
York and Washington, D.C., on September 11, 2001, New Delhi on December 13, 2001 and Bangalore on December
28, 2005, and other acts of violence or war (including civil unrest, military activity and hostilities among neighbouring
countries, such as between India and Pakistan), may adversely affect worldwide financial markets, and could lead
to economic recession. This may reduce the purchasing power of our targeted clientele. South Asia has, from time
to time experienced instances of civil unrest and hostilities among neighbouring countries, such as between India
and Pakistan. Military activity or terrorist attacks in the future could influence the Indian economy by disrupting
communications and making travel more difficult. Such political tensions could create a greater perception that
investments in Indian companies involve a higher degree of risk. This, in turn, could have a material adverse effect
on the market for securities of Indian companies, including the Equity Shares and/or NCDs and on the market for
the Company’s products and services.
After this Issue, the price of the Equity Shares and/or the NCDs may be highly volatile, or an active trading
market for the Equity Shares and/or NCDs may not develop.
The prices of the Equity Shares and/or the NCDs on the Indian stock exchanges may fluctuate after this Issue as a
result of several factors, including volatility in the Indian and global securities market; our results of operations and
performance; subsequent corporate actions taken by us, performance of our competitors, perception in the market
about investments in the Indian watch, jewellery and precision engineering industries; adverse media reports on us;
changes in the estimates of our performance or recommendations by financial analysts and significant developments
in India’s economic liberalization and deregulation policies.

We may be adversely affected by economic, regulatory, political and military uncertainties in India and
surrounding countries.
In the early 1990s, India experienced significant inflation, low growth in gross domestic product and shortages of
foreign currency reserves. Since 1991, the Government of India has pursued policies of economic liberalization,
and has provided significant tax incentives and relaxed certain regulatory restrictions in order to encourage foreign
investment in specified sectors of the economy, including in the information technology sector. We cannot assure
you that the liberalization policies will continue. Various factors, including a collapse of the present coalition
government due to the withdrawal of support of coalition members, could trigger significant changes in India’s
economic liberalization and deregulation policies, disrupt business and economic conditions in India generally and
our business in particular. Our financial performance and the market price of the Equity Shares and/ or NCDs may
be adversely affected by changes in inflation, exchange rates and controls, interest rates, Government of India
policies (including taxation policies), social stability or other political, economic or diplomatic developments affecting
India in the future.
Exchange rate fluctuations may affect our financial condition and results of operations.
We report our financial results in Rupees, but a portion of our expenses such as imports of gold is denominated in,
or linked to US Dollars. The exchange rate between the Rupee and the US Dollar has changed substantially in
recent years and may fluctuate substantially in future. In fiscal 2005, approximately 8.28% of our total revenues
were derived from products sold in international currencies and 20.64% of total raw material and components
consumed, such as cost of imported gold (including customs duty), were computed in currencies other than Indian
Rupees, predominantly US Dollars. While we currently hedge some of our foreign currency exposures to minimize
the impact of fluctuating exchange rates, we cannot assure you that we will be able to effectively mitigate the
adverse impact of currency fluctuations on our results of operations.
Trade related policies of the countries from which we currently import, are critical to our profits.
In the event that there is a change in the tariff and non-tariff barriers of a country from which we import raw materials
and/or exports our products to, then such a change may have an impact on our profitability. Currently we import
certain products from specific countries in Asia and Europe. Our International Business Division markets our products
in certain countries in Europe. We may have to adapt new strategies to sustain our business, in case of any change
in these policies.

SECTION III : INTRODUCTION


This is only a summary and does not contain all the information that you should consider before investing in our PCDs, NCDs
and/or Equity Shares. You should read the entire Letter of Offer, including the sections titled “Risk Factors” and “Financial
Statements” on page 4 and 112 respectively of this Letter of Offer.
Summary
I. Overview
We were incorporated in 1984 as a joint venture between the TATA group and Tamil Nadu Industrial Development
Corporation (TIDCO), a Government of Tamil Nadu undertaking. We have been engaged in the manufacture and marketing
of quartz watches since 1987 and are now considered to be India’s leading watch manufacturer. Our business activities
cover watches, jewellery, precision engineering, accessories and licensed products and international marketing operations.
We have a wide range of products, which are classified on the basis of design, function and price points. In 1987 we
began manufacturing and retailing of watches, under the brand name Titan and thereafter under the brand names Sonata,
Fastrack and Nebula. We have recently entered the segment of premium fashion watches by acquiring a license for global
brands such as Tommy Hilfiger. In 1994 we diversified into manufacturing and marketing precious jewellery under the
brand name Tanishq. Tanishq started in 1994 by manufacturing and marketing 18 karat studded jewellery and in 1997
also began manufacturing and marketing 22 karat plain gold jewellery. We are also supplying certain precision engineering
components and automation equipment to industrial buyers particularly in the automobile and aerospace industries. In
2002 we diversified into fashion eyewear by launching Fastrack I-Gear sunglasses.
In 2000, we set up strategic business divisions for our watch and jewellery businesses. These divisions are independent
and are headed by a Chief Operating Officer (COO). In 2004, we constituted the International Business Division for
handling our businesses in overseas markets; the division is also headed by a COO.
For our business processes, we employ around 3,134 personnel. Our main manufacturing and assembly facilities for our
watches, jewellery and precision engineering businesses are located at Hosur in Tamil Nadu. We also have a watch
assembly unit at Dehradun in Uttaranchal, Baddi in Himachal Pradesh and a unit owned by our subsidiary, TTPL in Goa
which produces electronic circuitry for quartz watches. To cater to the manufacturing requirements of export-based business
in the precision engineering division, we have an operating unit as Bommasandra, Bangalore.
Our total income was Rs. 73,425.36 lakhs, Rs. 1,17,058.78 lakhs and Rs. 93,164.21 lakhs in six months ended September
30, 2005, fiscal 2005 and fiscal 2004 respectively. Our net profit after tax as restated was Rs. 2,572.55 lakhs, Rs. 2,567.56
lakhs and Rs. 1,369.01 lakhs in six months ended September 30, 2005, fiscal 2005 and fiscal 2004 respectively.
II. Competitive Strengths
Strong Brands
Our continued efforts on brand building have resulted in the development of a range of strong brands like Titan, Tanishq,
Sonata and Fastrack, which enables us to command a premium for our products as against our competitors. We believe
that our brands command respect and credibility and offer us competitive advantages in existing markets and while
entering new markets. We are able to leverage our brands to launch new products and extend into new product categories.
We believe that in the process of building these brands we have gained valuable insight into consumer behaviour, which
we leverage and utilise to drive business in today’s competitive markets. Our brands have also won various awards and
recognitions in both national and international forums. We also benefit from our association with the TATA brand name
that stands for quality, trust and value, especially with respect to the marketing efforts of Titan, Sonata and Tanishq.
Strong Retailing, Distribution and Supply Network
We have gained immense experience by establishing and managing a vast number of Titan and Tanishq outlets. We sell
our watches through over 11,393 outlets in over 2,546 towns in India. There are currently over 179 World of Titan showrooms
in over 105 towns and over 130 Time Zones in over 81 towns. We sell Tanishq jewellery through over 81 stores spread
across over 61 towns in India. Our presence in a wide range of retailing outlets from exclusive showrooms to department
stores has ensured that we have a wide network to reach our customers. We have a strong distribution and logistics
network and have undertaken various initiatives in further improving the efficiencies of our supply chain, which we believe
is critical to our operations. These aim at balancing multiple objectives, including keeping inventories and operating costs
under control. We have deployed international IT systems for our retail operations and complex supply chain across our
business processes, including enterprise resource planning software from SAP and Oracle. We also manage a wide after
sales service network for providing repair and maintenance services to our watch customers.

17
Design Experience
Product innovation is a primary driver for our businesses and design is a critical success factor especially when appealing
to the image conscious consumer. We have a large and experienced in house design team. Majority of our watches are
designed in house while we rely on both our in house team and freelance designers for our jewellery business. Our in
house design strength is a key differentiator which is constantly upgraded both through talent enhancement and technology
acquisition. Our in house design team received 7 accreditations in different categories at the NID-Business World Awards
-2004. Tanishq designed the ‘Miss India Crown’ and affiliated with a designer of international repute to create a collection
of jewellery which was presented at the Milan fashion week in 2004.
Integrated Manufacturing
We are amongst the largest manufacturers of watches in India. Most of our manufacturing processes for our jewellery
business is done at our dedicated factory located in Hosur. Our integrated manufacturing base produces high quality
components on an efficient basis and at low cost. We believe our facilities help us to substantially reduce new product /
design development time and cost and ensure continued availability of our products to customers.
Leading Market Position
We believe that we have a significant share of the organized watch market in India and have a large customer base.
Tanishq is the best known jewellery brand in India. (Source: Solitaire International, July 2005) Tanishq has a 40% share
of the organised jewellery market. (Source: World Gold Council and Mckinsey Study 2003 as quoted in Solitaire International,
July 2005). Our extensive marketing exercises conducted on a regular basis and our international experience in the past
13 years has helped us to tackle international competitors who have entered Indian markets.
Focus on Quality
We have established our reputation as a reliable manufacturer of quality products. We are committed to delivering high
quality products at reasonable prices to our customers. Our Time Products Division received 1SO 14001-1996 accreditation
in March 2002. We have received various accreditations for our manufacturing units. Our jewellery division received ISO
9001:2000 certification in August 2004. Our precision engineering division received ISO/TS 16949: 2002 and BS EN ISO
9001:2000 certification in February 2005. For more details on the various certifications received by us, please refer to the
section titled “Business-Awards and Certifications” on page 67 of this Letter of Offer.
Experienced Management and Technical Team
Our senior management team consists of experienced professionals with diverse skills and considerable experience in
the manufacturing, sales, marketing and retailing business both in the domestic and international markets. The management
team is complemented by a committed work force of highly technical and skilled personnel. Majority of our employees,
including our key managerial personnel have been working with us, for several years due to the emphasis we place on
employee retention and related benefits.
III. Our Strategy
Various products for specific price points and target audiences
Since inception, we have attempted to provide our customers, with quality products at a wide range of prices. As part of a
conscious branding and pricing exercise, we have developed several products for varying consumer demographics across
different price segments. We have brands like Sonata, which are focussed on the mass market as well as premium brands
like Nebula for high end consumers. In addition to the Tanishq range of jewellery for premium customers, we have also
recently introduced Gold Plus to cater to the mass market jewellery demand and price conscious customers. We are in the
process of implementing an ambitious growth plan that envisages expansion of our watch and jewellery business to
further expand our customer base. We recently launched brand Xylys in India, a watch in the premium category range
(above Rs. 10,000) which is assembled in Switzerland. We hope to penetrate existing markets with our new offerings and
expand our existing customer base both in India and abroad.
Our strategy for the Time Products Division
Watch SBUs- Titan and Sonata
In the watches market our strategy is to promote ownership of multiple watches and frequent replacement of watches
amongst existing owners through our ‘Titan’ brand of watches. Our internal research shows that 95% of the watch owners
own a single watch. We aim at creating demand for multiple ownership of watches. We focus on innovation to consistently
come up with new styles and technology introductions to create demand for multiple watch ownership. Through the
‘Sonata’ brand we encourage first time watch users and customers who buy watches from the unorganized market to
choose our brand as the preferred brand. With Sonata we also hope to tap into the large base of non watch owners in

18
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

India through innovative strategies. We also propose to expand our reach across the country by developing retail outlets.
The watch market is currently under penetrated by organized players and faces severe competition from the unorganized
sector. Increased penetration for the mid market segment will be achieved by expanding our presence in several upcoming
malls and department stores. We intend to continue to introduce products targeted at specific customer segments. Our
Raga 9 to 5 collection targeted modern Indian women, while our Titan Flip and Titan Edge collections targeted technology
savvy young professionals.
Precision Engineering SBU
We entered the precision engineering business in order to utilise our manufacturing facilities. However, with India becoming
a global destination for cost effective outsourcing of precision products because of the availability of high engineering
skills at a competitive price, we realised that it was worthwhile considering it as a business independent of watches and
jewellery. We propose to focus on this business as we see it to be a major growth driver for the Company. The critical
factor in this business, apart from delivery, cost and quality is our ability to scale up rapidly and capitalise on large long
term contracts. We propose to rapidly increase the capacity of our precision engineering units. A portion of the Issue
proceeds, amounting to Rs. 3,500 lakhs is proposed to be utilised to increase our manufacturing facilities for Precision
Engineering SBU. Our expansion plans include upgradation of the precision engineering division through technology
improvements to enable us to move up the value chain from component manufacturing to sub-assemblies. We believe
that improving our manufacturing facilities and capability building would enable us to serve sectors like automobile,
aerospace, and defence. We also intend to re-engineer our business processes to meet specific industry standards and
obtain certifications like TS 16949, AS 9100 and NADCAP. The skills we possess in precision engineering and capabilities
in plastic injection moulding have been used to extend our activities to new areas such as tool and die making, manufacture
of precision components for the aerospace industry and dash board clocks for the automobile industry. We propose to
leverage these skills to diversify into the pharmaceuticals, electronics and telecom sectors.
Our strategy for the Jewellery Division
We intend to make Tanishq, the most desirable jewellery brand for the Indian women, by reinforcing it as an experiential
retail brand through differential service, best in class designs and optimum variety to cater to diverse tastes. The jewellery
market in India, though very large in size, is highly fragmented and unorganised. We ventured into the jewellery market
because we saw an opportunity for branded jewellery. By branding jewellery and promoting Tanishq as a jeweller with
national presence, our strategy is to capitalise on our first mover advantage by guaranteeing our customers purity and
innovative designs. We also promote professional practices in marketing and retailing. We intend to further improve our
market based planning of merchandise to ensure adequate supply of quantity as well as variety at each store. This will
ensure better inventory management which is critical in the capital intensive jewellery business. We propose to expand
our national network by establishing new Tanishq showrooms across the country. Our strategy is to build and enhance
our brand image by continued emphasis on the quality and design of our jewellery products and tap the vast jewellery
market in India.
Our strategy for the International Business Division
Previously, we used our Associate Companies located overseas to promote our businesses in the international markets.
However, in 2004, given the opportunities that we anticipate in the global market for both watches and jewellery, we
reorganised our international operations under the International Business Division. The strategy of this division is to
systematically and continuously explore and analyze opportunities in international markets. New markets and countries
will be identified based on predetermined tested criteria. We hope to leverage our capabilities and brand image to enter
these new markets and also expand within our existing markets with both new and existing product ranges. Our main aim
is to penetrate new markets in a profitable and cost efficient manner.

We are in the process of identifying the locations for the remaining stores.
In addition to the expenditure to be incurred on own /leased property for the stores/showrooms/malls by way of Deposits to be
placed with property owners / developers, capital expenditure may also be incurred for brokerage and other related expenses.
Capital expenditure is also planned to be incurred in furnishing of the stores including electrical and lighting equipments, air
conditioning, interiors, furniture, fixtures, security systems, in -store IT systems, display equipments and other establishment
related expenditure. We have not entered into any agreements for the same as of date as these contracts would be entered
into a few months before the store is handed over to the Company by the developers/property owners.
We also propose to upgrade some of our existing stores. Upgradation of some of the existing stores will help enhance customer
interest by providing a new look, scope for better visual merchandising and in-store display and improve the customers
shopping experience. Expansion of some of the stores will also enable us to increase our existing range of offerings by
effectively utilizing the additional space available.The Upgradation budget would include expenses on electrical and lighting
equipments, air conditioning, interiors, furniture, fixtures, security systems, in -store IT systems, display equipment and other
establishment related expenses. Since these are standard equipments available from various vendors in India and overseas,
we do not foresee any difficulty in sourcing the same within short notice. The amount to be defrayed for this purpose is
estimated to about Rs. 200 lakhs.
A sum-total of Rs. 5,360 lakhs is planned to be incurred on purchase of stores, deposits to be given to the property owners/
developers, upgradation of existing stores, and furnishing of new stores. The schedule of implementation of the retailing plan
category-wise is as under:
Year Watch Retail Chain Jewellery Retail Chain
Stores Budgeted amount Stores Budgeted amount
(Rs. in lakhs) (Rs. in lakhs)
2006-07 57 2,633 1 200
2007-08 25 1,977 3 550
In addition to these stores, which will be managed by the Company, we intend to continue to set up franchised stores under the
‘World of Titan’ and ‘Tanishq’ chains as well as the ‘Timezone’, ‘Sonata’, ‘Fastrack’ and ‘Goldplus’ chains. However, these will
not involve any direct capital investment by the Company.
ii. Replacement, refurbishment and expansion of the Watch Manufacturing and Assembly facilities;
Replacement and refurbishing of watch manufacturing facilities and technology for precision plastic injection moulding
Our facilities for making watch components which are assembled into a watch was set up at Hosur, Tamil Nadu during 1986 -
87 with an initial assembly capacity of 20 lakhs watches. The manufacturing capacity was thereafter expanded in stages to its
present level of 110 lakhs. Certain items of plant and machinery are approximately 20 years old and we intend to replace the
same. We have already commenced a planned program of renewal and replacement of such machinery. We intend to incur
Rs. 639 lakhs towards this purpose. We have not yet placed any orders for the same.
In fiscal 2006, at our existing manufacturing facility at Hosur, we intend to establish manufacturing facilities with the addition of
precision plastic moulding equipment for the manufacture of micro-precision plastic movement components of watches using
injection moulding technology. An outlay of Rs. 345 lakhs is estimated for this project.
Through the aforesaid replacement and refurbishment, our manufacturing capacity will increase only marginally. However we
expect higher productivity from the newer machines. We expect to import part of the required equipments from reputed
equipment manufacturers and purchase the rest in India. All items which will be imported are standard equipments and are
easily available from vendors in India or overseas on short notice.
Expansion of assembly facilities for watches
At present, we have watch-assembly facilities at Hosur in Tamil Nadu, Dehradun in Uttranchal and Baddi in Himachal Pradesh.
In order to meet the growing demand for watches, we propose to expand our assembly capacity at Dehradun and Baddi where
we are entitled to avail exemption from payment of excise duty for an initial period of ten years and also avail tax benefits under
section 801C of Income-Tax Act, 1961.
Certain facilities situated in Dehradun and Baddi are currently entitled to certain fiscal benefits. However, any changes in
Government policy could affect our expansion plans. We have filed a writ petition in the High Court of Uttranchal in relation to
a notification wherein certain benefits available to us have been withdrawn. For details, please refer to the Risk Factor titled
“We have filed a writ petition in the High Court of Uttranchal, challenging the notification issued by the Government which has
revoked certain benefits provided to us” in the section titled “Risk Factors” on page 4 of this Letter of Offer.

iii. Expansion of jewellery-making facilities:


The jewellery-making facilities of the Company at Hosur were commissioned in 1994. We intend to spend approximately Rs.
775 lakhs on equipment for line balancing and productivity improvement.
All the jewellery produced by the Company is branded jewellery under the name ‘Tanishq’. From March 1, 2005, branded
jewellery has become liable to excise duty at the rate of 2%. However units set up in sub-Himalayan states are exempted from
the payment of excise duty for an initial period of 10 years. Our watch manufacturing facility situated in Dehradun is currently
entitled to certain excise duty and income tax benefits. To avail of the same benefits as our watch manufacturing facility, we
intend to set up a 14,000 square feet jewellery manufacturing facility at Dehradun, adjacent to our watch assembly unit, on
land which we have recently acquired. However, any change in government policy could affect our expansion plans.
This unit will manufacture studded jewellery and also comprise of a facility for vendors to manufacture plain gold jewellery. The
estimated cost of setting up of this facility is approximately Rs. 300 lakhs. We expect the unit to commence production in the
first half of fiscal 2007. The break-up of the capital expenditure planned for the fiscal 2006 and fiscal 2007 is as follows:

included in this Letter of Offer.
Qualitative Factors
 Strong Brands
We possess strong brands like Titan, Sonata, Fastrack and Tanishq, which enables us to command a premium for our
products as against our competitors.
 Strong Retailing, Distribution and Supply Network
We sell our watches through over 11,393 outlets in over 2,546 towns in India. There are currently over 179 World of Titan
showrooms in over 105 towns and over 130 Time Zones in over 81 towns. We sell Tanishq jewellery through over 81
stores spread across over 61 towns in India. We have a strong distribution and logistics network to support our all India
presence in retailing.
 Design Expertise
We have a large and experienced in house design team. Majority of our watches are designed in house. We rely on both
our in house team and freelance designers for our jewellery business.
 Leading Market Position
We believe that we have a significant share of the organized watch market in India and have a large customer base.
Tanishq is the best known jewellery brand in India. (Source: Solitaire International, July 2005) Tanishq has a 40% share
of the organised jewellery market. (Source: World Gold Council and Mckinsey Study 2003 as quoted in Solitaire International,
July 2005)
Quantitative Factors
Basis of issue price of Convertible Portion of PCD:
Information presented in this section is derived from our unconsolidated restated financial statements, prepared in accordance
with Indian GAAP.
a) Earning Per Share (EPS) - Restated of face value of Rs. 10
Year Rupees Weight
Year ended March 31, 2003 0.61 1
Year ended March 31, 2004 2.35 2
Year ended March 31, 2005 5.32 3
Weighted Average 3.55
EPS (not annualized) for the six-month period ending September, 2005 was Rs. 5.71
Notes:
(1) The earning per share has been computed on the basis of ‘Net profit – restated’ as appearing in the “Summary
Statement of Profits and Losses – Restated” as per the Auditors’ Report.
(2) The weighted average of EPS for these fiscals has been calculated by giving weights of 1, 2 and 3 for fiscal 2003,
2004 and 2005 respectively.
(3) The face value of each Equity Share is Rs. 10.
b) Price/Earning (P/E) ratio in relation to the conversion price of Part A of the PCD:
 Based on EPS of Rs. 5.32 for year ended March 31, 2005 : 65.79
 As there is no separate classification for retail sector, benchmark comparable industry P/E is not available

Weighted Average 12.97
RONW (not annualized) for the six-month period ending September 30, 2005 was 14.14%

expenditure (to the extent not written off or adjusted) as appearing in “Summary Statement of Assets and Liabilities
– Restated” as per the Auditors’ Report.
(2) The weighted average of Average Net Worth for these fiscals has been calculated by giving weights of 1, 2 and

Minimum Return on Increased Net Worth required to maintain pre-issue EPS: 9.23%
d) Net Asset Value
Net Asset Value per Equity Share as at September 30, 2005 is Rs. 43.04
The Net Asset Value per Equity Share after the Issue is Rs. 57.65
Conversion price of Part A of the PCD: Rs. 350 per Equity Share
e) Comparison of Accounting Ratios with Peers
We believe there are no comparable listed companies, which are in the business of watch manufacturing and
retailing, and are also into jewellery manufacturing and retailing business. Hence there is no comparison with
industry peers.
The face value of each Equity Share is Rs. 10 per Equity Share and the conversion price of the convertible
portion of Rs. 350 per Equity Share is 35 times of the face value.
The Lead Manager believes that the Issue Price of Rs. 350 is justified in view of the above qualitative and
quantitative parameters.
Basis of interest rate payable on Non Convertible Debenture Portion:
Salient features of Non Convertible Debenture Portion:
Credit Rating assigned by:
 CRISIL Limited as ‘A/Stable’ (indicates adequate degree of safety with regard to timely payment of interest and principal
on the instrument)
 ICRA Limited as ‘LA’ (indicates adequate credit quality)
Redemption: At the end of 5 years

Yield to Investor: 6.75%
Prevailing Yield on Government of India Securities (As on February 20, 2006) - The annualized yield on the 5-year benchmark
security is 6.82%. (Source: Bloomberg)
On the basis of above the Lead Manager and the Company are of the opinion that the interest payable on NCD portion is
justified.

Promise versus Performance


a) The Company had simultaneously undertaken a public issue of 17,50,000 Equity Shares for cash at par and 5,25,000
secured redeemable partly convertible debentures of Rs.300 each for cash at par at a coupon rate of 13.5% per annum,
aggregating to Rs. 17,50,00,000 in April 1987. The aggregate issue proceeds were utilized to set up a manufacturing
facility to manufacture quartz analog electronic watches at Hosur in Tamil Nadu. The Company did not make any profitability
projections in the Letter of Offer for the above issue and hence there is no comparison of the Company’s actual performance
vis-à-vis the projections made.
b) In August 1989, the Company completed a rights issue of 12.5% 2,40,000 partly convertible debentures to the shareholders
and 12,000 partly convertible debentures to the employees of the Company for cash at par in the ratio of one debenture
of face value of Rs. 500 each for every Rs. 100 fully paid equity shares held on the record date. The issue part financed
the capital expenditure plan for manufacture of watch cases and other critical components in-house. The Company did
not make any profitability projections in the Letter of Offer for the above issue and hence there is no comparison of the
Company’s actual performance vis-à-vis the projections made.
c) In October 1992 the Company made a rights issue of 1,46,90,900 Equity Shares of Rs. 10 each for cash at a premium of
Rs.40 per Equity Share, aggregating Rs. 7,345.45 lakhs. A comparison of promise versus performance for the next three
years is given below:

The main reason for the difference between the projections and the actual achievement is the fact that the jewellery
manufacturing factory in Hosur commenced production only in the first quarter of 1994-95 as against the originally proposed
commissioning date, third quarter of 1993-94 and it took longer than expected for stabilization of production. Thus, both
sales and profits in relation to the business of the Company were affected.

SECTION IV : ABOUT THE ISSUER COMPANY

Industry Overview
The Indian retail market is large, but highly fragmented with very few large retailers. Modernization of the Indian retail sector
will reflect in rapid growth in sales from supermarkets, departmental stores, hypermarkets and specialty stores. Modernization
of the Indian retail sector is reflected in rapid growth in sales from supermarkets, departmental stores, hypermarkets and
specialty stores.
The Indian retail sector is at an inflexion point, with many enabling conditions coming into existence e.g. favorable demographics,
rising consumer incomes, real estate developments especially with emergence of new shopping malls, availability of better
sourcing options both from within India and overseas, changing lifestyle that brings the Indian consumer closer to the consumers
in more developed markets, easy availability/ heightened usage of credit cards and affinity for branded products. All these
changes are driving growth of the organized retail sector. This growth is being witnessed across all the segments such as food
and grocery, textiles and apparel, consumer durables, music and books and speciality products, watches, jewellery, and
sunglasses come under the retail speciality segment. According to The Marketing Whitebook 2005, the size of retail in India is
$180 billion of which only 2% is organized retail. In the USA the share of organized retail is as high as 85%. Within the
organized retail sector, clothing and textile dominate with a 36% share followed by watches & jewellery, which has a 17%
market share.
Watch Industry
Globalization, greater literacy and a spurt in growth of the middle and higher middle class has turned India into a fast growing
market for watches as well as clocks. Over the past few decades, there has been a change in the composition of the industry.
From humble beginning in the 1950s, when the only choice was HMT (Hindustan Machine Tools), the scene has changed
today to one where the market is flooded with models from both India and abroad, all vying for the customer’s attention.
International brands have elevated the image and status of watches in modern life and today they are considered an essential
fashion accessory as against being a mere utility product as in the past.
The Indian watch market is currently pegged at approximately 350 lakh watches. (Source: Tradepost Vol. XLVII No.3 September
2005). The industry can be classified into 3 segments
 Mass Market or the Economy market (Rs. 100 – Rs. 1000)
 Mid Market or Mid Premium (Rs. 1000 – Rs. 5000)
 Premium (Rs 5000 and above)
The volumes are predominantly concentrated in the mass market or the economy segment due to the presence of a large
number of players from the unorganized sector. As a result of reduction in peak custom duties, the industry has witnessed
entry of many international brands in to the country. Most of the international brands have entered in the premium segment.
Reduction in custom duty has increased the competition between Indian watch manufacturers and international watch brands.
The percentage of adults who own watches is much lower in rural areas as compared to urban areas. Most of the buyers,
specially in rural areas, are single watch owners.
Gems and Jewellery Industry (Source: ICRA-Indian Gems and Jewellery Industry, August 2005) The Indian gems and
jewellery industry is an important segment of the Indian economy. The industry is categorized into:
 Gemstones - diamonds, coloured stones, precious, semi-precious, synthetic
 Jewellery - plain gold, studded, silver, costume
 Pearls
The two major segments in India are gold and diamond jewellery. Gold jewellery accounts for around 80% of the Indian
jewellery market, with the balance comprising of fabricated studded jewellery-diamonds and gemstones.
Purchase of jewellery is an important part of weddings in India. It is estimated that more jewellery is bought for weddings than
for all other reasons. The established tradition of buying jewellery on marriages reduces the industry’s susceptibility to recession.
Traditionally, the jewellery industry has been a fragmented one. Independent non branded jewellers had a reasonable standing
in a local area and enjoyed a loyal and fixed clientele. The buyer had implicit faith in his jeweller but widespread cheating of
several players had begun to shake this faith. The inadequacy of statutory controls has enabled many jewellers to get away
with providing jewellery of low purity (under-karatage). In 2000 GOI introduced voluntary hallmarking of gold jewellery through
the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). However hallmarking has not been fully utilized due to it being a voluntary process and
there being a limited number of hallmarking centres in the country.

54
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

Branded jewellery is a fairly recent trend. Tanishq, the jewellery division of Titan, was set up in 1994 to bring credibility and
professionalism to the jewellery industry. Today, several other branded jewellers like Nakshaktra, Gili etc. have established
their presence in the market. Some local players and sight holders engaged in the cutting and polishing of diamonds are also
making a foray into the retail market.
The domestic jewellery market is estimated to be Rs. 435 billion. The domestic demand, for gold jewellery accounts for 80%
of the total market i.e. Rs. 350 billion. The balance comprises of diamond jewellery, which is estimated at Rs. 65 billion and
other fabricated jewellery, estimated at Rs. 20 billion.
Increased disposable income and aggressive promotion strategies by the diamond industry have led to a significant increase
in the demand for Indian diamond jewellery. The demand has increased significantly in recent years—from Rs. 19.7 billion in
1995 to around Rs. 56 billion in 2003 and to Rs. 65 billion in 2004.
With industry bodies like the World Gold Council (WGC), Diamond Trading Company (DTC) and Platinum Guild International
(PGI) continuing to invest in marketing gold, diamonds and platinum respectively, jewellery is likely to remain a significant item
on the Indian consumer’s shopping list.
Business
I. Overview
We were incorporated in 1984 as a joint venture between the TATA group and Tamil Nadu Industrial Development
Corporation (TIDCO), a Government of Tamil Nadu undertaking. We have been engaged in the manufacture and marketing
of quartz watches since 1987 and are now considered to be India’s leading watch manufacturer. Our business activities
cover watches, jewellery, precision engineering, accessories and licensed products and international marketing operations.
We have a wide range of products, which are classified on the basis of design, function and price points. In 1987 we
began manufacturing and retailing of watches, under the brand name Titan and thereafter under the brand names Sonata,
Fastrack and Nebula. We have recently entered the segment of premium fashion watches by acquiring a license for global
brands such as Tommy Hilfiger. In 1994 we diversified into manufacturing and marketing precious jewellery under the
brand name Tanishq. Tanishq started in 1994 by manufacturing and marketing 18 Karat studded jewellery and in 1997
also began manufacturing and marketing 22 karat plain gold jewellery. We are also supplying certain precision engineering
components and automation equipment to industrial buyers particularly in the automobile and aerospace industries. In
2002 we diversified into fashion eyewear by launching Fastrack I-Gear sunglasses.
In 2000, we set up strategic business divisions for the watch and jewellery businesses. These divisions are independent
and are headed by a Chief Operating Officer (COO). In 2004, we constituted the International Business Division for
handling our businesses in overseas markets, the division is also headed by a COO.
For our business processes, we employ around 3,134 personnel. Our main manufacturing and assembly facilities for our
watches, jewellery and precision engineering businesses are located at Hosur in Tamil Nadu. We also have a watch
assembly unit at Dehradun in Uttaranchal, Baddi in Himachal Pradesh and a unit owned by our subsidiary, TTPL in Goa
which produces electronic circuitry for quartz watches. To cater to the manufacturing requirements of export-based business
in the precision engineering division, we have an operating unit as Bommasandra, Bangalore.
Our total income was Rs. 73,425.36 lakhs, Rs. 1,17,058.78 lakhs and Rs. 93,164.21 lakhs in six months ended September
30, 2005, fiscal 2005 and fiscal 2004 respectively. Our net profit after tax as restated was Rs. 2,572.55 lakhs, Rs. 2,567.56
lakhs and Rs. 1,369.01 lakhs in six months ended September 30, 2005, fiscal 2005 and fiscal 2004 respectively.
II. Competitive Strengths
Strong Brands
Our continued efforts on brand building have resulted in the development of a range of strong brands like Titan, Tanishq,
Sonata and Fastrack, which enables us to command a premium for our products as against our competitors. We believe
that our brands command respect and credibility and offer us competitive advantages in existing markets and while
entering new markets. We are able to leverage our brands to launch new products and extend into new product categories.
We believe that in the process of building these brands we have gained valuable insight into consumer behaviour, which
we leverage and utilise to drive business in today’s competitive markets. Our brands have also won various awards and
recognitions in both national and international forums. We also benefit from our association with the TATA brand name
that stands for quality, trust and value, especially with respect to the marketing efforts of Titan, Sonata and Tanishq.
Strong Retailing, Distribution and Supply Network
We have gained immense experience by establishing and managing a vast number of Titan and Tanishq outlets. We sell
our watches through over 11,393 outlets in over 2,546 towns in India. There are currently over 179 World of Titan showrooms

55
in over 105 towns and over 130 Time Zones in over 81 towns. We sell Tanishq jewellery through over 81 stores spread
across over 61 towns in India. Our presence in a wide range of retailing outlets from exclusive showrooms to department
stores has ensured that we have a wide network to reach our customers. We have a strong distribution and logistics
network and have undertaken various initiatives in further improving the efficiencies of our supply chain, which we believe
is critical to our operations. These aim at balancing multiple objectives, including keeping inventories and operating costs
under control. We have deployed international IT systems for our retail operations and complex supply chain across our
business processes, including enterprise resource planning software from SAP and Oracle. We also manage a wide after
sales service network for providing repair and maintenance services to our watch customers.
Design Experience
Product innovation is a primary driver for our businesses and design is a critical success factor especially when appealing
to the image conscious consumer. We have a large and experienced in house design team. Majority of our watches are
designed in house while we rely on both our in house team and freelance designers for our jewellery business. Our in
house design strength is a key differentiator which is constantly upgraded both through talent enhancement and technology
acquisition. Our in house design team received 7 accreditations in different categories at the NID-Business World Awards
-2004. Tanishq designed the ‘Miss India Crown’ and affiliated with a designer of international repute to create a collection
of jewellery which was presented at the Milan fashion week in 2004.
Integrated Manufacturing
We believe that we are the largest manufacturer of watches in India. Most of our manufacturing processes for our jewellery
business is done at our dedicated factory located in Hosur. Our integrated manufacturing base produces high quality
components on an efficient basis and at low cost. We believe our facilities help us to substantially reduce new product /
design development time and cost and ensures continued availability of our products to customers.
Leading Market Position
We believe that we have a significant share of the organized watch market in India and have a large customer base.
Tanishq is the best known jewellery brand in India. (Source: Solitaire International, July 2005) Our extensive marketing
exercises conducted on a regular basis and our international experience in the past 13 years has helped us to tackle
international competitors who have entered Indian markets.
Focus on Quality
We have established our reputation as a reliable manufacturer of quality products. We are committed to delivering high
quality products at reasonable prices to our customers. Our Time Products division received 1SO 14001-1996 accreditation
in March 2002. We have received various accreditations for our manufacturing units. Our jewellery division received ISO
9001:2000 certification in August 2004. Our precision engineering division received ISO/TS 16949: 2002 and BS EN ISO
9001:2000 certification in February 2005. For more details on the various certifications received by us, please refer to the
section titled “Awards and Certifications” on page 67 of this Letter of Offer.
Experienced Management and Technical Team
Our senior management team consists of experienced professionals with diverse skills and considerable experience in
the manufacturing, sales, marketing and retailing business both in the domestic and international markets. The management
team is complemented by a committed work force of highly technical and skilled personnel. Majority of our employees,
including our key managerial personnel have been working with us, for several years due to the emphasis we place on
employee retention and related benefits.
III. Our Strategy
Various products for specific price points and target audiences
Since inception, we have attempted to provide our customers, with quality products at a wide range of prices. As part of a
conscious branding and pricing exercise, we have developed several products for varying consumer demographics across
different price segments. We have brands like Sonata, which are focussed on the mass market as well as premium brands
like Nebula for high end consumers. In addition to the Tanishq, range of jewellery for premium customers, we have also
recently introduced GoldPlus to cater to the mass market jewellery demand and price conscious customers. We are in the
process of implementing an ambitious growth plan that envisages expansion of our watch and jewellery business to
further expand our customer base. We recently launched brand Xylys in India, a watch in the premium category range
(above Rs. 10,000) which is assembled in Switzerland. We hope to penetrate existing markets with our new offerings and
expand our existing customer base both in India and abroad.

TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

Our strategy for the Time Products Division


Watch SBUs- Titan and Sonata
In the watches market our strategy is to promote ownership of multiple watches and frequent replacement of watches
amongst existing owners with our ‘Titan’ brand of watches. Our internal research shows that 95% of the watch owners
own a single watch. We aim at creating demand for multiple ownership of watches. We focus on innovation to consistently
come up with new styles and technology introductions to create demand for multiple watch ownership. Through the
‘Sonata’ brand we encourage first time watch users and customers who buy watches from the unorganized market to
choose our brand as the preferred brand. With Sonata we also hope to tap into the large base of non watch owners in
India through innovative strategies. We also propose to expand our reach across the country by developing retail outlets.
The watch market is currently under penetrated by organized players and faces severe competition from the unorganized
sector. Increased penetration for the mid market segment will be achieved by expanding our presence in several upcoming
malls and department stores. We intend to continue to introduce products targeted at specific customer segments Our
Raga 9 to 5 collection targeted modern Indian women while our Titan Flip and Titan Edge collections targeted technology
savvy young professionals.
Precision Engineering SBU
We entered the precision engineering business in order to utilise our manufacturing facilities. However, with India becoming
a global destination for cost effective outsourcing of precision products because of the availability of high engineering
skills at a competitive price, we realised that it was worthwhile considering it as a business independent of watch and
jewellery. We propose to focus on this business as we see it to be a major growth driver for the Company. The critical
factor in this business, apart from delivery, cost and quality is our ability to scale up rapidly and capitalise on large long
term contracts. We propose to rapidly increase the capacity of our precision engineering units. A portion of the Issue
proceeds, amounting to Rs. 3,500 lakhs is proposed to be utilised to increase our manufacturing facilities for Precision
Engineering SBU. Our expansion plans include upgradation of the precision engineering division through technology
improvements to enable us to move up the value chain from component manufacturing to sub-assemblies. We believe
that improving our manufacturing facilities and capability building would enable us to serve sectors like automobile,
aerospace, and defence. We also intend to re-engineer our business processes to meet specific industry standards and
obtain certifications like TS 16949, AS 9100, NADCAP. The skills we possess in precision engineering and capabilities in
plastic injection moulding have been used to extend our activities to new areas such as tool and die making, manufacture
of precision components for the aerospace industry and dash board clocks for the automobile industry. We propose to
leverage these skills to diversify into the pharmaceuticals, electronics and telecom sectors.
Our strategy for the Jewellery Division
We intend to make Tanishq, the most desirable jewellery brand for the Indian women, by reinforcing it as an experiential
retail brand through differential service, best in class designs and optimum variety to cater to diverse tastes. The jewellery
market in India, though very large in size, is highly fragmented and unorganised. We ventured into the jewellery market
because we saw an opportunity for branded jewellery. By branding jewellery and promoting Tanishq as a jeweller with
national presence, our strategy is to capitalise on our first mover advantage by guaranteeing our customers purity and
innovative designs. We also promote professional practices in marketing and retailing. We intend to further improve our
market based planning of merchandise to ensure adequate supply of quantity as well as variety at each store. This will
ensure better inventory management which is critical in the capital intensive jewellery business. We propose to expand
our national network by establishing new Tanishq showrooms across the country. Our strategy is to build and enhance
our brand image by continued emphasis on the quality and design of our jewellery products and tap the vast jewellery
market in India.
Our strategy for the International Business Division
Previously, we used our Associate Companies located overseas to promote our businesses in the international markets.
However, in 2004, given the opportunities that we anticipate in the global market for both watches and jewellery, we
reorganised our international operations under the International Business Division. The strategy of this division is to
systematically and continuously explore and analyze opportunities in international markets. New markets and countries
will be identified based on predetermined tested criteria. We hope to leverage our capabilities and brand image to enter
these new markets and also expand within our existing markets with both new and existing product ranges. Our main aim
is to penetrate new markets in a profitable and cost efficient manner.
IV. Description of our Businesses
We have 3 operating divisions namely the:
1. Time Products Division (Watches and Precision Engineering);

57
2. Jewellery Division (Tanishq); and
3. International Business Division
Each of our operating divisions is further classified into different strategic business units (SBUs) for different product
groups.
1. TIME PRODUCTS DIVISION
Our Time Products Division is classified into five SBUs. They are (a) Titan; (b) Sonata; (c) Accessories and Licensing;
(d) Precision Engineering; and (e) Retailing Group
(a) TITAN AND SONATA SBUs
We commenced production of watches in 1987 by collaborating with France Ebauches, a leading international
manufacturer of watches and components. By 1989 we had indigenized the manufacture of movement components
and had set up facilities to manufacture watches in India. We are currently the market leaders in the organised watch
market in India.
Products & Customers
Our watches are categorized into the following brands, based on sales and price point of each brand.
Titan
The Titan brand is a mid market player and targets a wide variety of customer segments. Majority of our customers for
this category are middle and upper class Indians who are mostly multiple watch owners and are brand conscious.
They are willing to pay a price for differentiations in style, technology and image. We believe that Titan appeals to
customers with traditional tastes as well as those with a preference for modern and contemporary designs. Consequently
the product offering is varied and across different price points, design, material types and finish. Under the Titan
brand name we have various collections including Raga, Regalia, Gold and Steel, Edge and Bandhan. The current
price range for these brands ranges from Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 8,000. We also market watches under the Nebula brand
targeted at the premium segment. We recently launched brand Xylys in India, a watch in the premium category range
(above Rs. 10,000) which is assembled in Switzerland.
Sonata
Sonata was launched as a sub-brand of Titan in May 1997 to increase market share by introducing product offerings
in the lower price segment. Sonata was introduced as a range of gold plated watches for men and women at affordable
prices. Sonata was spun off as the second brand from the Company in November 1998 and began operating with
products, styling and pricing independent of Titan. The product collection now includes all steel watches from the
Exacta range and also a new plastic collection, which is aimed at a relatively younger audience. Sonata has been
positioned as a watch that offers greater value to the budget conscious customer. The brand is priced competitively,
with the current price band ranging between Rs. 395 and Rs. 1,995. Sonata has made significant inroads in competing
with the unorganised market players and upgrading consumers from non branded watches to branded watches. The
role of Sonata is clearly defined as tapping the potential offered by non watch owners and the owners of non branded
watches in India who are resident mostly in semi-urban or rural India. The brand has been able to establish a strong
presence and is sold through over 10,237 outlets across over 2,444 towns.
Facilities
We believe that we are the largest watch manufacturer in the India that have the capability to manufacture a watch
from start to finish. Our manufacturing and assembly facilities are located at Hosur, Baddi, Dehradun and Goa.
Majority of our manufacturing facilities are located in leased premises. At each of these facilities we have state of the
art equipment and infrastructure. Each of our manufacturing units is supported by an able maintenance unit which is
responsible for the upkeep of the machinery. Our watch assembly capacity at Hosur is 40 lakh watches, at Dehradun
Unit I it is 30 lakh watches, Unit II it is 20 lakh watches and at Baddi it is 20 lakh watches. During fiscal 2005, we
manufactured 72 lakh watches and hence, our capacity utilization in fiscal 2005 was 80 percent. Dehradun Unit II
commenced operations in October 2005 and hence the capacity was not available during fiscal 2005.
Manufacturing Process
Any watch can be primarily divided into 2 parts; which is the Appearance Parts and the Movement Parts. The
Appearance Parts are the visible parts of the watch, which serve both the aesthetic and functional purposes and
include the case, bezel ring, crown, dial, hands, strap and crystal. The Movement Parts are the mechanism of the

58
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

watch that enables it to depict time. The more functions of a watch the greater is the complexity of the watch, and
therefore the greater the number of parts.

We have the facilities to manufacture all the parts of a watch. Our Subsidiary in Goa manufactures and sources to us
movements and integrated circuit boards while our unit in Hosur manufactures all the Assembly Parts. Though we
have the capability of manufacturing watch bracelets, we outsource the same as is it is more cost effective.
A watch has to go through a variety of pre-production processes before it reaches a consumer. The manufacturing of
a watch involves various stages including conceptual drawing, prototype, product drawing, production plan, tool
drawings, tool manufacture, tool trial and product approval.
Our manufacturing unit at Hosur has all the manufacturing departments including auto turning, gears and sub assembly,
press shop, ebauche, treatment, case press shop, case machine shop, case polishing, case plating, case assembly,
assembly, press shop, machining, polishing, assembly, press shops, machine processes, polishing, ion plating and assembly.
Design team
The Titan Design Studio caters to the design needs of the Time Products Division. The Design Studio is responsible
for developing the design for various new products that we propose to launch. Typically a new product development
process begins with a written brief from the marketing department, to technical drawings, prototyping, cost approval
and finally bulk production. The average duration of this cycle typically ranges from 40 days to 150 days depending
on the complexity of the product. The Design Studio is also responsible for visual merchandising, which is the art of
decorating either the retail environment or products to achieve maximum sales by tapping into the psychology of a
potential customer and creating an experience that is visually pleasing. The Design Studio is also responsible for the
warehouse, inventory management and dispatch of visual merchandising material.
Information Technology
We have implemented the ERP product of SAP R/3 in 1999, and have since seen improvements in material planning
and in the overall efficiency of our business transactions. We are in the process of implementing an Advance Planning
and Optimiser software to further strengthen the supply chain and improve efficiencies in forecasting, manufacturing,
procurement and distribution.

59
Branding and Advertising
Advertising, sales promotions and visual merchandising are essential for marketing consumer durable products like
watches. The Company handles advertising at the national and regional levels. This includes national advertising in
the press and TV and producing and distributing point of sale material like posters. To supplement national advertising
by the Company, retailers are also encouraged to engage in local advertising to inform customers about the location
and availability by including dealers names and address and to increase customer traffic during festival times and
lean periods.
We use celebrity endorsements to increase the visibility of our brands. Each of our celebrity endorsers are carefully
picked, keeping in mind their status in the market and its reflection on our brands. For Fastrack sunglasses we signed
up with Bollywood celebrity John Abraham for promoting sunglasses amongst a young audience. For Titan watches
we have signed on Aamir Khan to promote multiple ownership of watches.
Marketing, Sales and Distribution
Our sales and marketing unit was created with the intention of broad basing our sales and marketing activities across
the country both in terms of town coverage, dealer network and new approaches to communication strategy, especially
in non metros. Through the sales and marketing unit we plan and implement sales and marketing activities to achieve
our targets, fine tune all marketing inputs in terms of media and other budgets to meet territory specific needs, identify
performance targets with specific responsibility centres and improve cost effectiveness of our operations.
Quality Assurance
The Time Products Division received ISO 14001-1996 accreditation in March 2002.
Competition
Our watches face competition from international brands, domestic brands and from the unorganized sector. The
competitors of Sonata are Maxima, Timex, HMT, Lamex, Classic, TimeWell and many other unbranded players. We
also face competition from brand including Casio, Citizen, Esprit, Giordano, Omega, Rado, Seiko, Swatch, Tag
Heuer, Timex and Tissot. The watch industry is also subject to competition from other products that include a time
keeping function, like mobile phones.
(b) ACCESSORIES AND LICENSING SBU
The role of the Accessories and Licensing Brand SBU is to explore new opportunities in the accessories and licensing
space by extending our watch brands to other categories and to use our vast distribution and retail network for selling
other brands of watches. Keeping this in mind we have entered the following businesses:
 Fastrack Watches and Sunglasses
Fastrack watches was launched in October 1998 as a separate brand endorsed by Titan, targeting the youth with
trendy and bold designs at affordable prices. The brand is positioned as contemporary, confident, casual and
trendy. The brand has recently been repositioned as a younger brand targeted at college students. The current
market price of Fastrack watches ranges from Rs. 500 to Rs. 2,500.
Fastrack sunglasses was launched as a brand extension to create a more accesorisable brand for the youth with
trendy, sporty, colourful and fashionable offerings, differentiating on design and looks. This is primarily an
outsourced business model, with Titan creating the design inhouse and tying up with specific vendors to
manufacture them in line with our specifications. Titan handles the distribution and after sales service through its
retail network. The sunglasses target the branded offerings in the range of Rs. 695 to Rs. 1,995. With Fastrack
watches and eye gear, we hope to create a strong brand amongst a big and strategic segment of the market;
which is the Indian youth.
 Tommy Hilfiger watches
We have entered into a license agreement to exclusively market Tommy Hilfiger watches in India. These watches
will address the growing fashion watch segment in the Indian market, targeting the young, premium, urban and
fashion conscious young men and women. With Tommy Hilfiger, as part of our watch offerings we will learn
about the small but rapidly growing niche segment of fashion watches. It will also enable us to evaluate licensing
as a route to possible future growth.
(c) PRECISION ENGINEERING SBU
We have been manufacturing a wide variety of watch movement components and cases since 1987 and have gained
experience in the design, manufacturing and supply chain management of precision components. We began

60
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

manufacturing precision engineering products for global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to leverage our
existing capabilities in manufacturing and to utilize surplus assets available in the Time Products Division. We have
also leveraged our design capability and cost advantage to become a provider of automation solutions.
Products and Customers
The Precision Engineering SBU is based on skills and capacities in high precision, metal and plastic engineering and
is focused on exploring business in the area of components for the automotive, aerospace, electronics and orthopedics
industry. We have been supplying dash board clocks to several automotive major companies. In addition there is also
a team that is involved in machine building and automation. The Precision Engineering SBU has executed many
robotized automation projects for automobile manufacturers. The current product range of the Precision Engineering
SBU includes (i) precision machined components and sub assemblies for original equipment manufacturers in
aerospace and automotive industry; (ii) die and moulds for precision pressed parts and injection moulded plastic
components; (iii) automotive sub assemblies such as pointers, clocks and gauges; and (iv) automatic assembly lines
for tiny and precision engineering parts namely linear transfer lines, robots, servo pick ‘n’ place, test rigs, optical
sensing and inspection systems.
Facilities and Manufacturing Process
Our precision engineering manufacturing units are located at Hosur, Tamil Nadu and at Bommasandra (near Bangalore),
Karnataka. Our manufacturing unit at Hosur was initially set up as a clock and bracelet manufacturing unit and was
later converted into a precision engineering manufacturing unit. Our manufacturing facilities include special processes
like heat treatment, coatings, honing, and fine surface finishing. We have testing facilities that include special non-
destructive testing and materials engineering.
Design team
Our design and development process includes concept design followed by prototyping and customer approval for
coordination till the product is finally delivered to the intended market. We have an in house design team which has
considerable experience in tool design / mould design / tool and die making. We use software like Coral Draw for free
hand sketches and high end software like Pro E for 3 D modeling, mould design and electrodes. Designs for machine
parts and elements are outsourced. Our design team is ISO 9001 – 2000 and TS 16949 – 2002 certified.
Quality Assurance
In the Precision Engineering SBU the quality function has two aspects. The first aspect is ‘Quality Control’ which
monitors the quality of products manufactured on a daily basis and the second aspect is the ‘Quality Management
System’ which monitors compliance with customer specific international standards. The Precision Engineering SBU
is also equipped with calibration and testing facilities to calibrate instruments and conduct Measurement System
Analysis (MSA) of instruments. Our testing and reliability laboratory is equipped with equipment like form testers,
roughness testers, height masters, measuring instruments with 0.001 mm accuracy, comparator, hardness testers
and bore micrometers. We have also tied up with external laboratories, accredited with ISO 17025 for calibration,
material testing, and plating thickness test.
Competition
Local competition in the precision engineering industry is mainly from a few small and medium enterprises who have
limited exposure to export markets and to some extent from established manufacturing giants like Larsen & Toubro
and Godrej Boyce Company Limited. The larger companies are focused on large parts and systems whereas we
focus on high precision and medium to small parts and systems. Our challenge is to scale up rapidly and earn a
bigger share of the opportunity in the manufacturing and outsourcing market.
(d) RETAIL GROUP SBU
Previously, the retailing efforts of the Company for our watches division were being driven by the Titan, Sonata and
Accessories & Licenses SBUs respectively. However, since August 2005 in order to integrate, build synergy, maximise
the utilisation of resources and creation of knowledge, we created the Retailing Group to spearhead all the retailing
efforts of the Time Products Division. This SBU will be a service provider to all our watch brands and businesses and
closely liaise with them to ensure differentiated and distinct retail identities. This SBU also manages customer service.
However, retailing and customer service are managed as two independent functions.
Retailing
There are currently over 179 World of Titan showrooms in over 105 towns and over 130 Time Zones in over 81 towns.
To create maximum reach and penetrate the market we adopt the following distribution network:

61
Our retailing is done through a multi-tiered distribution structure, which includes the following retail outlets:
 World of Titan Showrooms
To meet consumer needs and showcase our brands, we set up the World of Titan Showrooms, which are exclusive
Titan outlets that offer the customer the full range of Titan products and to reinforce our image of being innovative
and world class. World of Titan Showrooms are both Company managed and franchised. We currently have over
179 World of Titan showrooms in over 105 towns. The Company managed showrooms serve as flagship retailing
stores designed to provide the best that the World of Titan has to offer to customers. They also influence the
operations of other franchisees and bring about uniformity across the retail chain.
For the franchised World of Titan Showrooms, we have entered into agreements with entrepreneurs to create an
outlet to exclusively retail Titan watches and eye gear. We provide all necessary support to achieve sales targets,
which are mutually agreed upon and are based on estimated potential. The franchised outlets are expected to
maintain the same standards as the Company owned showrooms and adhere to guidelines issued by the Company.
Our franchisee model enables us to establish our outlets at desired locations where we are unable to obtain real
estate on agreeable terms. The franchisee network also helps us save on man power costs, reduce overheads
and setting up time. We are also able to benefit from the local knowledge of the market that our franchisees have.
To ensure loyalty of our customers we have launched our customer relationship management programme, the
Titan Signet Programme, in our World of Titan Showrooms which aims at creating, retaining and maximizing the
relationship our loyal customers have through rewards and recognitions. It recognizes and rewards customer’s
loyalty to the brand and to the World of Titan Showrooms.
 Time Zone
The Titan Shop programme began in 1991, when the brand equity of Titan and the reach of our showrooms were
limited. However, with the spread of the showrooms, we decided to convert the Titan shops into Time Zone, a
chain of retail outlets. This was our collaborative effort with the top watch retailers of the country to create a chain
of watch stores that offer the customer with a host of benefits including reliability of products, wide choice of
brands, quality merchandising, reliable after sales service, convenience of location and quality of salesmanship.
Currently we have over 130 Time Zones in over 81 towns.
 Redistribution Stockist
The redistribution stockist is a channel of distribution that arose from our inability to directly serve the smaller
dealers in smaller towns. In 1991, the redistribution stockist became a separate and important channel of distribution
for our watches. The use of redistribution stockists have reduced the cost of distribution, increased market reach
and ensured ability to focus on certain select brands. It also enables small dealers who cannot operate on a cash
and carry basis to obtain credit from the redistribution stockist.

62
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

 Traditional Outlets
These outlets are characterized by owners who are personally involved in the business and have several years
of experience in the watch trade. The traditional outlets normally stock all brands including ours and those from
the unrecognized sector. Traditional outlets often have their own niche markets, attract a set of loyal customers
and offer personalized services. It provides us with the reach and penetration required and provides an edge
over distribution in very small/rural areas of towns which typically have a population of less than 50,000 people.
 Non Traditional Outlets
Non Traditional Outlets are those outlets that sell watches among other product lines. Non Traditional Outlets
build brand awareness amongst potential customers. Today, there are hundreds of Non Traditional Outlets,
including department stores which contribute a large percentage of our sales revenue. They are usually located
at convenient locations and are situated away from main watch markets.
 Institutions
An institutional purchase is any single order that equals or exceeds 10 watches and Rs. 10,000 in value. The
size of the corporate/institutional gifting market runs into several thousand lakhs. Corporate entities purchase
watches as gifts for their employees to reward productivity bonus, performance awards, long service and jubilee
celebrations. They also gift watches to their customers and dealers during the festive season. We offer special
services such as dial printing, engraving, screen printing, special dials and other special features for such orders
from institutions. We also supply watches to the armed forces for their canteen stores department across the
country at pre-negotiated prices.
Customer Service
We have one of the largest service networks in the watch industry in India. A ‘quick service’ initiative has been
implemented at certain of our service centres, which we believe has further improved our customer relations. We
recently used external surveys to track changing customer expectations and have provided enhanced training programs
for the staff, which are aligned to customer needs.
Our Customer Service unit is information technology driven and special initiatives have been made to link the service
network through a web based application. Service centres which have been computerized are able to transfer data
on a daily basis to the Company on product performance and service deliverables.
We have set some challenging service deliverables in the area of post product servicing in India. We aim at creating
a platform to extend this high quality service delivery to other product categories like mobile phones, high end Swiss
watches, camera, etc.
2. JEWELLERY DIVISION
We ventured into the jewellery market in 1996, with our brand ‘Tanishq’ to tap the potential for branded jewellery in the
otherwise unorganised jewellery market in India.
Tanishq is the primary brand under which we market our jewellery. We opened the first Tanishq jewellery store in Chennai
in 1996. Currently, we sell Tanishq jewellery through over 81 stores spread across over 61 towns in India, which are either
Company managed, management agent owned, or franchised. The Company managed showrooms serve as flagship
retailing stores designed to provide the best that the Tanishq stores have to offer to customers. They also influence the
operations of other franchisees and bring about uniformity across the retail chain. Tanishq jewellery is also exported to
Europe, the US, the Middle East and Australia. Tanishq has recorded a sales turnover of Rs. 53,400 lakhs for the financial
year 2004-2005.
Products
Our jewellery products are broadly categorised into groups, which include studded jewellery, 22 karat jewellery and coins.
Within each of these groups are product categories namely neckwear, sets, bangles, earings, pendants, chains, finger
rings, nose rings, bracelets and tikkas.
Our jewellery utilizes materials such as platinum, gold, silver and other precious metals and stones, including diamonds.
We place considerable emphasis on marketing our diamond collection. Each Tanishq diamond is cut according to rigidly
enforced measurement and precision standards. The colour of each diamond is determined, and graded according to
grading standards of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) scale from “D” (colourless) to “Z” (intense yellow). We
also grade our diamonds as per the GIA scale of VVSI (very very small inclusions) to S12 (small inclusions) to offer
various standards of clarity.

63
At Tanishq we constantly innovate and introduce new collections based on various looks and themes, both contemporary
and traditional. Our jewellery collections include Aria, Ethnic Gold, Lightweight Diamonds and Paheli. Apart from the
collections in gold and diamonds we also offer a collection in sterling silver.
Manufacturing Process
Our jewellery manufacturing facility was set up in 1994 at Hosur. Over the years, the division has established integrated
jewellery manufacturing and outsourcing facilities and has grown to become one of the largest branded jewellery
manufacturers in India. The manufacturing process in the factory follows the lost wax casting process. Some of the key
facilities include the refining plant with Swiss technology, the alloying equipment, assay testing facilities and Yasui waxing
and casting machines from Japan. Through these technology initiatives, we have been able to consistently deliver products
with requisite karatage. The product development cycle in some product categories is led by Computer Aided Design
(CAD)/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technology that enables seamless integration from styling and 3-D solid
modeling to engineering design, tool design, tool making and prototype making.
The manufacturing process in machine made jewellery involves designing, refining, waxing and casting, soldering, sizing,
linking, enameling, stone setting, polishing, colouring and plating.
Our jewellery manufacturing unit has in the past been able to meet the increased demand of our customers. We have also
put in place an enterprise wide resource-planning software package, licensed from Oracle, which will allow us to have
better inventory management, data accuracy and integrity, faster information flow, improve ability to meet our delivery
commitments and provide centralised data availability.
Karigar Parks
A typical jewellery industry usually consists of an owner, middlemen and a karigar (workman with jewellery experience).
In order to eliminate middlemen and provide direct employment to karigars, karigar parks were set up at Hosur in 2001.
The karigar parks have also helped reduce the cost of manufacturing. As they are akin to ancillary units, gold is under our
surveillance and control. We train the owner and workforce of such karigar parks to follow the systems and procedures
laid down by us to ensure quality products to customers. We also provide the raw materials and designs to the karigars.
As the karigar park is located at Hosur we benefit from quick delivery, reduced inventory holding, quicker communication,
flexibility to respond during exigency, elimination of logistics cost and quicker lead time.
Raw Materials
The main raw material that we use for our jewellery business is gold which comprises 80-85% of our procurement turnover
and is sourced from overseas suppliers through nominated agencies and from Indian banks. Diamonds are sourced from
appointed sight holders of the Diamond Trading Company (DTC). A small portion of our diamond requirement is also
sourced from the open market.
Facilities, Infrastructure and security
Tanishq jewellery is crafted in our manufacturing unit located at Hosur. The factory is equipped with the latest and most
modern machinery and equipment. The jewellery division proposes to set up a 14,000 square feet manufacturing facility
in Dehradun to avail of excise duty benefits. For more details please refer to the section titled “Objects of the Issue” on
page 37 of this Letter of Offer.
Design team
We have a full-fledged design studio with a team including international award winning Indian designers. Tanishq is
constantly innovating and introducing new collections based on various looks and themes - both contemporary and
traditional, to fit every occasion and mood.
Inventory Management and Billing
Inventory management at Tanishq is carried out by setting predetermined inventory levels for all our stores. These are
monitored on a daily basis with the help of IT related software. The supply chain department also monitors the inventory
levels at factory and with various suppliers through the ERP system and through implementation of lean production
system.
The billing at Tanishq stores is done through a customized point of sale software, which is linked to our corporate office
through a dotnet framework, which updates all previous day transactions in the enterprise point of sale software. These
details are uploaded into the factory system wherein the supply chain department monitors the inventory level, rate of sale
and thereby controls the inventory level by dispatching products to the stores accordingly. The limits set by supply chain
ensure that stores cannot exceed inventory limits as the difference of limits and inventory level decides the ordering limits.

TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

Role of International Bodies


There are certain industry bodies such as the World Gold Council (WGC), Diamond Trading Company (DTC) and the
Platinum Guild International (PGI) that play a significant role in promoting the sale of jewellery and we work closely with
them. These organizations provide financial and marketing support to the industry.
Marketing, Sales and Distribution
Tanishq jewellery is sold exclusively through three types of stores namely
(a) Company operated stores
(b) Management Agent stores and
(c) Franchised stores
We have Company operated stores in Bangalore, Hosur, Chennai, Calcutta, Mumbai and New Delhi. Tanishq has not
only developed a national retail chain with uniform and transparent practices and policies but also maintained consistency
of retailing standards across all these stores on an ongoing basis.
Tanishq has undertaken certain marketing initiatives, including launching a heritage special collection and conducting
sales promotion schemes to activate the market and attract customers. These marketing activities are usually on the
basis of collections, seasons and certain customer schemes.
Wedding/Heritage Jewellery
A wedding is usually the biggest occasion for jewellery purchase in India. Tanishq has a wide collection of jewellery
including bangles, earings, necklaces, sets specific to culture and ethnic requirements for wedding and wedding related
occasions.
Tanishq has launched certain jewellery collections which take inspiration from Indian culture and is designed keeping in
mind the modern Indian woman.
Festivals
We celebrate important festivals like Dhanteras, Akshaya Tritiya, Rakhi and Durga pooja by offering special advertising,
store decoration, promotions/schemes, and sometimes new collections too.
Customer Schemes
We institute certain schemes on a regular basis to build our existing customer base and to attract new customers. In
addition there are certain other initiatives that we have done in our stores like (i) Category melas, where various products
like neckwear, bangles, and others in various designs are put together in a store for a limited period and promoted through
advertising, store facades and local activities; and (ii) Karatmeter testing/jewellery servicing camps/jewellery makeover
week.
Retail Operations
At Tanishq our retail operation comprises three main elements:
1. Customer
The overall consumer understanding is gained from marketing driven consumer research. Customer satisfaction and
loyalty for existing product and services is measured and guided by retail operations. The customer related programs
employed by our retail operations are (i) VOICE T (Voice of Invaluable Customer Entering Tanishq), a customer
satisfaction measurement program that is used to collect feedback from customers visiting our stores, (ii) Store
Scorecard, which assesses the health of a store by monitoring store productivity, customer satisfaction, employee
satisfaction and audit compliance and (iii) Complaint Management System.
2. Sales people
Our sales people offer the brand Tanishq experience to the customers through product knowledge, delivering the
prescribed standards of customer service and meeting customer expectations. We undertake the recruitment, training
and development of sales staff. Training is imparted through a training programme - TAJ- Tanishq Accomplished
Jewellers. We also have various reward programmes in place for our sales persons based on achievements of pre-
determined targets.

65
3. Process
With multiple chains of stores operating in different locations with different people, uniformity is achieved by well-
defined processes laid for the business. All operational aspects of a store are provided to each store through Store
Operations Manuals, the more recent BOAT (Boutique Operations Advisory Tool) and the proposed New Process
Manual. The Tanishq business model is as follows:

Gold Plus
With a view to capture the semi urban and rural market, which caters to the informed, educated and middle class and
upper middle class across the towns in India, we have recently launched Gold Plus, our brand name for pure gold
jewellery products. Gold Plus was launched in September 2005, through a new retail format and business model.
We are still in the pilot stage and have opened two Goldplus stores at Erode, Tamil Nadu and Ratlam, Madhya
Pradesh.
Quality Assurance
We guarantee the purity of our gold jewellery and certify the quality of our diamonds and coloured gems. We have
established ourselves as a highly ethical player in a market that was rated as having the highest incidence of
underkaratage.
Competition
The market for diamond jewellery has recently witnessed the entry of several players who were engaged in the
cutting and polishing of diamonds for supply to jewellery manufacturers. The shrinking margins in the cutting and
polishing business has forced them towards forward integration and they have launched various brands of diamond
jewellery such as Kiah, Orra, Nakshatra, Asmi, Arisia and Collection ‘g’ which are available through a national network
of other jewellers. Industry bodies like the World Gold Council (WGC), Diamond Trading Company (DTC) and Platinum
Guild International (PGI) are also investing substantial monies in marketing gold, diamonds and platinum respectively
and are actively promoting their siteholders through various advertising campaigns both in the press and television.
Over 3,00,000 independent jewellers in the unorganized sector service the large jewellery market, most of these
being singlestore and city specific retailers though some also have a regional presence. Tanishq’s primary competitors
are the top three to five jewellers at the premium end of the jewellery market, in each city where we are present and
who attract our target customers. Most of these jewellers have usually been in existence for several decades, are
family run, benefit from having local knowledge and a loyal base of customers. Some of the regional players include
Mehrasons Jewellers (Delhi), Tribhuvandas Bhimji Zaveri (Mumbai), B.C.Sen and P.C.Chandra (Kolkata), G.R.Thanga
Maligai (Chennai) and C. Krishnaiah Chetty (Bangalore). We have also begun facing competition from international
jewellery brands such as Damas.
3. INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS DIVISION
We entered the international market with Titan watches in the early nineties starting with the Middle East and later
spreading to Europe, the Asia-Pacific region and Africa. We have a relatively stronger presence in the Middle East and
Asia Pacific. We have sold more than five lakh watches in fiscal 2004 outside India and are consistently increasing our
presence in the international jewellery market.

66
TITAN INDUSTRIES LIMITED

To consolidate the operations in overseas markets and provide a unified thrust across countries, a new division, the
International Business Division was formed in fiscal 2004 for watches, jewellery and other products of Titan. This division
drives the globalisation efforts of the Company with a sharp focus on country prioritization, market positioning and
identification of profitable business opportunities across the globe.
Our Associate Companies located in specific international jurisdictions help market and distribute our watches, jewellery
and other product offerings. The Company against purchase orders supplies the product to such Associates. The Associates
thereafter invoice the local distributor, based on their consumption. The distributors in turn market the product through
specific retailers in the relevant jurisdictions.
We operate through exclusive distributors in each country. Each distributor is responsible for building the sales infrastructure,
holding stocks and offering credit in the market to retailers.
Titan International (Middle East) FZE (TIME), an Associate Company based in Dubai, looks after sales and marketing of
our products in the Middle East, Commonwealth of Independent States countries and Africa.
Titan Watches & Jewellery International (Asia Pacific) Pte Limited (TWJIPL), an Associate Company based in Singapore,
looks after sales and marketing in South Asia, South-East Asia and South Pacific.
Titan International Marketing Limited (TIML), an Associate Company based in London, looks after sales and marketing in
Europe.
We have provided certain loans to our Associate Companies to undertake these activities in their relevant jurisdictions.
For more details please refer to our risk factor titled “Certain of our overseas Subsidiaries and Associates have incurred
losses on an unconsolidated basis” in the section titled “Risk Factors”on page 4 of this Letter of Offer.
 Watches
The international watch market is a highly fragmented market. A large number of brands, between 200 to 300,
compete in the developed and developing markets. In addition to the traditional “Watchmaker” brands like Citizen
and Sieko we have the “Fashion” brands which have taken significant market share from the traditional brands. Our
strategy has been to position Titan as a “value for money” brand offering contemporary designs. In each market
where we are present, we have differentiated ourselves from global brands by developing specific collections for the
mainstream buyer and using our retailing experience to create a strong retail presence.
Our future strategy for watches is to concentrate on markets with a significant expatriate Indian population (the
Middle East) or who have an “India-friendly” outlook (South and South-East Asia) in addition to new countries in
regions like Latin America and East Europe. We also propose to emphasize contemporary styling and expand the
Titan watch collections in these jurisdictions.
 Jewellery
We entered the Middle East and Singapore markets in 2001 and 2003 respectively through a chain of stores selling
Tanishq branded jewellery. In addition, we also supply unbranded jewellery.
Our future strategy is to expand sales of diamond studded jewellery since the margins are much higher than that for
plain gold jewellery. We also propose to develop a dedicated line at our manufacturing facility to deliver international
quality products. Our emphasis will continue to be on the Middle East and South-East Asia. We propose to enter the
American market next fiscal year.
V. Awards and Certifications

Other Quality Initiatives
We also use the Tata Business Excellence Model (TBEM) based on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award as an
overarching framework to focus on overall performance improvement. Under the TBEM umbrella, we have introduced and
implemented the Balanced Score Card (BSC) in a systematic manner to focus not only on a single unified review mechanism
but also to drive improvements aimed at balancing the requirements of all the stakeholders. The implementation of the
BSC has helped implement strategic plans and put us on the roadmap for developing and implementing action plans. In
2003, the Time Products Division was awarded the ‘Active Promotion award’ of the Tata Business excellence model. In
2004 the Jewellery Division was awarded the Delta 100+ award.
VI. Human Resources
We have a total of 3,134 permanent employees as on January 31, 2006, working in various departments including our
corporate office, regional offices, Company owned showrooms, factories and other units. In addition, we also have various
trainees, contract workers and apprentices who are hired on a job work basis or on a temporary contract.

C. NOTES ON ADJUSTMENTS
(i) Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS)
Until the year ended March 31, 2004, the Company recognized the liability towards VRS on net present value basis.
In order to comply with the Accounting Standard 29 on Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets issued by
the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India which became mandatory from April 1, 2004, the Company has recognized
the liability towards VRS on actual basis as compared to the net present value basis followed in earlier years, which
resulted in additional charge to the profit and loss account of the year ended March 31, 2005.

131
The effect of change in method of recognizing VRS liability has been adjusted for the concerned prior years (i.e. year
ended March 31, 2004 and March 31, 2003), so as to recompute the profits and losses of those years had the uniform
accounting policy been followed in each of these years.
(ii) Depreciation
During the year ended March 31, 2002, the Company revised the estimated useful life of the computers from 6 years to 5
years. Further, useful life of the computers was revised from 5 years to 4 years during the year ended March 31, 2004.
The effect of change in estimated useful life of computers has resulted in additional depreciation charge in the respective
years.
The effect of revision in estimated useful life of computers has been adjusted for the concerned prior years (i.e. year
ended March 31, 2004, March 31, 2003, March 31, 2002 and March 31, 2001), so as to recompute the profits and losses
of those years considering the uniform estimated useful life of computers for each of these years. Further, reserves as at
April 1, 2000 have been appropriately adjusted to reflect the impact of changes of prior years.
(iii) Gratuity
Until the year ended March 31, 2002, the Company accounted for gratuity as per the provisions of “Payment of Gratuity
Act, 1972”.
During the year ended March 31, 2003, the gratuity liability was computed in accordance with the gratuity scheme introduced
by the Company as against the provisions of “Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972”, which resulted in an additional charge to
profit and loss account for the year ended on that date.
For the purpose of this statement, the said additional charge has been adjusted in the respective years and reserves as
at April 1, 2000 have also been appropriately adjusted to reflect the impact of changes of prior years. As the actuarial
valuation was not obtained, the adjustment is done on an estimated basis.
(iv) Deferred tax
In order to comply with the Accounting Standard 22 on Accounting for Taxes on Income issued by the Institute of Chartered
Accountants of India which became mandatory from April 1, 2001, the Company for the first time in the year ended March
31, 2002 has accounted for deferred tax in respect of timing differences.
Consequent to the change in accounting policy and to have a uniform accounting policy from the year ended March 31,
2001, deferred tax asset/liability have been computed for the year ended on that date. The deferred tax asset / liability
relating to the period prior to April 1, 2000 have been appropriately adjusted to the balance of general reserve and profit
and loss account as at April 1, 2000. Further, consequent to the adjustments made in respect of items referred to in this
Annexure, the impact on deferred tax has been adjusted in the respective years.
(v) Income tax of earlier years
In the financial statements for six months period ended September 30, 2005 and for the year ended March 31, 2005,
March 31, 2004, March 31, 2003, the Company had recognized income tax charge of earlier years. For the purpose of
this statement, income tax charge has been identified and adjusted in arriving at the profits and losses of the years to
which they relate. Further, reserves as at April 1, 2000 have been appropriately adjusted to reflect the impact of income
tax charges pertaining to prior years.
D. NOTE ON NON-ADJUSTMENT
Financial leases
Until the year ended March 31, 2001, lease rentals pertaining to finance leases were charged to the profit and loss account.
As the Accounting Standard 19 on Leases issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India became mandatory from
accounting period commencing on or after April 1, 2001, the fixed assets acquired through finance lease transactions entered
into on or after that date have been capitalised and no adjustment is made in the “Summary Statement of Profits and Losses
– Restated” for and upto the year ended March 31, 2001 in respect of assets acquired through finance leases prior to April 1,
2001.

Annexure XV
C. Significant Accounting Policies
1. Basis and preparation of accounts:
The accounts are prepared under the historical cost convention and materially comply with the applicable accounting
standards. The significant accounting policies followed by the Company are as stated below:
i) Fixed assets: Fixed assets are capitalised at acquisition cost including directly attributable cost of bringing the
assets to their working condition for intended use.
ii) Depreciation: Depreciation has been provided on the straight-line method in accordance with the rates prescribed
by the Schedule XIV to the Companies Act, 1956.
Amortisation: Lease premium is amortized on a pro-rata basis over the period of lease.
iii) Foreign currency transactions: Foreign exchange transactions are recorded at the exchange rates prevailing on
the date of the transaction.
Foreign currency liabilities incurred for the acquisition of imported fixed assets are translated at exchange rates
prevailing on the last working day of the accounting year or forward cover rates, as applicable. The net variation
arising out of the said translation is adjusted to the cost of fixed assets.
Other outstanding foreign currency monetary items are restated at period end rates or forward cover rates, as applicable.
The net loss or gain arising on restatement / settlement is adjusted to the profit and loss account.
In respect of forward exchange contracts, the premium or discount arising at the inception of such a forward exchange
contract is amortized as expense or income over the life of the contract. Exchange differences on such contracts are
recognized in the statement of Profit and Loss of the reporting period in which the rates change except in case of
liabilities incurred for acquiring imported fixed assets.
iv) Inventories: Inventories are valued at lower of cost and net realisable value except stores and spares which are
charged to profit and loss account at point of purchase. The cost of various categories of inventory is determined as
follows :
a) Raw materials and bought-out components are valued on a monthly moving weighted average rate.
b) Work-in-progress and finished goods are valued on full absorption cost method based on the annual average
cost of production.
v) Revenue recognition: Sales is recognised on despatch of goods from the factory.
vi) Retirement benefits: Contribution to the provident fund and pension fund is made monthly at a pre-determined rate
to the Employee Provident Fund and Pension Fund Account and debited to the profit and loss account on an accrual
basis. Liability for gratuity and leave salary is provided on actuarial basis.
vii) Government grants: State investment subsidy is treated as Capital reserve.
viii) Deferred taxation: Deferred taxation is accounted for in respect of all timing differences on a liability method. Deferred
tax asset is recognised to the extent where the management is reasonably certain that the realisation is more likely
than not.

depreciation is made in respect of these assets.
c. Deferred Trademark Royalty Expenditure
This a lump sum payment in lieu of reduction of trademark royalty from 3% to 2% for a period of 25 years commencing
from 1 July 1998. It is amortised in proportion to the forecasted sales over the 25 years period.
d. Stocks
Stocks are stated at the lower of cost (cost being determined on a first-in-first-out basis) and net realizable value.

temporary differences at the balance sheet date between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and the amounts
used for tax purposes.
Deferred tax liabilities are recognized for all taxable temporary differences.
Deferred tax assets are recognized for all deductible temporary differences to the extent that it is probable that taxable
profit will be available against which the deductible temporary difference can be utilized.
f. Foreign Currency Transactions
Transactions in foreign currencies are measured and recorded in Singapore dollars using the exchange rate in effect at
the date of transaction. At each balance sheet date, recorded monetary balances that are denominated in a foreign
currency are adjusted to reflect the rate at the balance sheet date. All exchange adjustments are taken to the profit and
loss account.
g. Cash and cash equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash on hand and bank balances.
h. Financial Risk Management
The Company’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks, including the effects of changes in foreign currency

Fund (CPF). CPF contributions are recognized as an expense in the same period as the employment that gives rise
to the contribution.
j. Impairment
The carrying amounts of the Company’s assets are reviewed at each balance sheet date to determine whether there is
any indication of any impairment. If any such indication exists, the assets recoverable amount is estimated. All impairment
losses are recognized in the profit and loss account whenever the carrying amount of an asset of its cash-operating unit
exceeds its recoverable amount.
An impairment loss is only reversed to the extent the assets carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that
would have been determined, net of depreciation or amortisation, if no impairment loss had been recognized. All reversals
of impairment loss are recognized in the profit and loss account.

beginning on page 4 of this Letter of Offer, which discusses a number of factors and contingencies that could impact our

stand-alone basis. Our financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Indian GAAP, the accounting standards
referred to in Section 211(3C) of the Companies Act and the other applicable provisions of the Companies Act. The following
discussion is also based on internally prepared statistical information and publicly available information. Unless otherwise
stated, the financial information used in this section is derived from our audited unconsolidated financial statements under
Indian GAAP, as restated.
Our fiscal year ends on March 31 of each year, so all references to a particular fiscal year are to the 12-month period ended
March 31 of that year and all references to first half of a fiscal year refers to the six-month period ended September 30 of that

OVERVIEW
We were incorporated in 1984 as a joint venture between the TATA group and Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation
(TIDCO), a Government of Tamil Nadu undertaking. We have been engaged in the manufacture and marketing of quartz
watches since 1987 and are now considered to be India’s leading watch manufacturer. Our business activities cover watches,
jewellery, precision engineering, accessories and licensed products and international marketing operations.
We have a wide range of products, which are classified on the basis of design, function and price points. In 1987 we began
manufacturing and retailing of watches, under the brand name Titan and thereafter under the brand names Sonata, Fastrack
and Nebula. We have recently entered the segment of premium fashion watches by acquiring a license for global brands such
as Tommy Hilfiger. In 1994 we diversified into manufacturing and marketing precious jewellery under the brand name Tanishq.
Tanishq started in 1994 by manufacturing and marketing 18 Karat studded jewellery and in 1997 also began manufacturing
and marketing 22 Karat plain gold jewellery. We are also supplying certain precision engineering components and automation
equipment to industrial buyers particularly in the automobile and aerospace industries. In 2002 we diversified into fashion
eyewear by launching Fastrack I-Gear sunglasses.
For our business processes, we employ around 3,134 personnel. Our main manufacturing and assembly facilities for our
watches, jewellery and precision engineering businesses are located at Hosur in Tamil Nadu. We also have a watch assembly
unit at Dehradun in Uttaranchal, Baddi in Himachal Pradesh and a unit owned by our subsidiary, TTPL in Goa which produces
electronic circuitry for quartz watches. To cater to the manufacturing requirements of export-based business in the precision
engineering division, we have an operating unit as Bommasandra, Bangalore.
We currently have 3 operating divisions namely the:
1. Time Products Division (Watches and Precision Engineering);
2. Jewellery Division (Tanishq); and
3. International Business Division
The Time Products Division and the Jewellery Division were set up in 2000. In 2004 we constituted the International Business
Division for handling our businesses in overseas markets. Each of our operating divisions is further classified into different
strategic business units (SBUs) for different product groups. For more information, please refer to section titled “Business” on
page 55 of this Letter of Offer.
However, for the purpose of our financial statements, our results of operations have been consolidated under two major
divisions– the Time Products Division and the Jewellery Division. The Titan and Sonata strategic business units (“SBU”) are
the major contributors to the revenues of the Time Products Division. The Time Products Division also includes the Accessories
and Licensing, Precision Engineering and Retail Group SBUs. The Jewellery Division comprises solely of the revenues generated
from Tanishq.
The revenues generated from the International Business Division is classified either under the Time Products Division or the
Jewellery division based on the type of product (i.e. watches or jewellery) sold overseas.
The functional currency of the Company is Indian Rupee. All our transactions denominated in foreign currency are recorded at
the exchange rate prevailing on the date of transaction. Foreign currency liabilities are translated at exchange rates prevailing
on the last working day of the accounting year or forward cover rates, as applicable.

Factors effecting results of operations
Several factors have affected our results of operations, financial condition and cash flow significantly over the past three
years. These factors include:
 General economic condition in India and large global markets;
 Changes in our pricing policies or those of our competitors;
 Our ability to successfully anticipate and offer products that our customers demand;
 Our ability to successfully launch new products on a timely basis to reduce our cost structure, including fixed costs, to
streamline our operations and to reduce product costs;
 The timing of our or our competitors’ new products or product enhancements or any delays in such introductions by us;
and
 Macro economic changes affecting the purchasing power of our customers.
These factors and a number of future developments may affect our results of operations, financial condition and cash flow in
future periods. For more details please refer to section titled “Risk Factors” on page 4 of this Letter of Offer.

an irrevocable authorization from them authorizing the Company to repay on their behalf directly to the bank, from the future
payments due to these VRS optees under the Voluntary Retirement Scheme.
Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure about Market Risk
We are exposed to market risks from changes in foreign exchange rates and interest rates. The following discussion is based
on our consolidated financial statements under Indian GAAP.
Exchange Rate Risk
Our margins and net income are affected by the movement of the Indian Rupee against other currencies. In fiscal 2005, 2004
and 2003, approximately 8.24%, 9.37% and 7.79% respectively of our total income was earned in currencies other than the
Indian Rupee. As of the date of this Letter of Offer, we have not entered into any hedging or forex contract to minimize our
exposure to foreign exchange fluctuations. Accordingly, the depreciation of the Indian Rupee against such foreign currencies
can adversely affect our results of operations.
Interest Rate Risk
Our exposure to interest rate risks relates primarily to our debt. Approximately 41.88% of our total debt as of September 30,
2005 bears interest at floating rates, which are primarily tied to the prime lending rates of the banks that have extended loans to us.
Critical Accounting Policies
Preparation of financial statements in accordance with Indian GAAP, the applicable accounting standards issued by the ICAI
and the relevant provisions of the Companies Act require our management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions
regarding uncertainties that affect the reported amounts of our assets and liabilities, disclosures of contingent liabilities and
the reported amounts of revenues and expenses. These judgments, assumptions and estimates are reflected in our accounting
policies, which are more fully described in the report of our auditors in the sections titled “ Financial Statements” beginning on
page 112 of this Letter of Offer.

207
Certain of our accounting policies are particularly important to the portrayal of our financial position and results of operations
and require the application of significant assumptions and estimates of our management. We refer to these accounting policies
as our “critical accounting policies”. Our management uses our historical experience and analyses, the terms of existing
contracts, historical cost convention, industry trends, information provided by our agents and information available from other
outside sources, as appropriate, when forming our assumptions and estimates. However, this task is inexact because our
management is making assumptions and providing estimates on matters that are inherently uncertain.
While we believe that all aspects of our financial statements should be studied and understood in assessing our current and
expected financial condition and results, we believe that the following critical accounting policies warrant additional attention:
Changes in accounting policies/estimates in the last three years
(i) Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS)
Until the year ended March 31, 2004, the Company recognized the liability towards VRS on net present value basis.
In order to comply with the Accounting Standard 29 on Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets issued by
the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India which became mandatory from April 1, 2004, the Company has recognized
the liability towards VRS on actual basis as compared to the net present value basis followed in earlier years, which
resulted in additional charge to the profit and loss account of the year ended March 31, 2005.
The effect of change in method of recognizing VRS liability has been adjusted for the concerned prior years (i.e. year
ended March 31, 2004 and March 31, 2003), so as to recompute the profits and losses of those years had the uniform
accounting policy been followed in each of these years.
(ii) Depreciation
During the year ended March 31, 2002, the Company revised the estimated useful life of the computers from 6 years to 5
years. Further, useful life of the computers was revised from 5 years to 4 years during the year ended March 31, 2004. The
effect of change in estimated useful life of computers has resulted in additional depreciation charge in the respective years.
The effect of revision in estimated useful life of computers has been adjusted for the concerned prior years ( i.e. year
ended March 31, 2004, March 31, 2003, March 31, 2002 and March 31, 2001), so as to recompute the profits and losses
of those years considering the uniform estimated useful life of computers for each of these years. Further, reserves as at
April 1, 2000 have been appropriately adjusted to reflect the impact of changes of prior years.
(iii) Gratuity
Until the year ended March 31, 2002, the Company accounted for gratuity as per the provisions of “Payment of Gratuity
Act, 1972”.
During the year ended March 31, 2003, the gratuity liability was computed in accordance with the gratuity scheme introduced
by the Company as against the provisions of “Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972”, which resulted in an additional charge to
profit and loss account for the year ended on that date.
For the purpose of this statement, the said additional charge has been adjusted in the respective years and reserves as
at April 1, 2000 have also been appropriately adjusted to reflect the impact of changes of prior years. As the actuarial
valuation was not obtained, the adjustment is done on an estimated basis.
(iv) Deferred tax
In order to comply with the Accounting Standard 22 on Accounting for Taxes on Income issued by the Institute of Chartered
Accountants of India which became mandatory from April 1, 2001, the Company for the first time in the year ended March
31, 2002 has accounted for deferred tax in respect of timing differences.
Consequent to the change in accounting policy and to have a uniform accounting policy from the year ended March 31,
2001, deferred tax asset/liability have been computed for the year ended on that date. The deferred tax asset / liability
relating to the period prior to April 1, 2000 have been appropriately adjusted to the balance of general reserve and profit
and loss account as at April 1, 2000. Further, consequent to the adjustments made in respect of items referred to in this
Annexure, the impact on deferred tax has been adjusted in the respective years.
Significant Developments after September 30, 2005 that may affect the future of our operations
Except as stated in this Letter of Offer, to the best of our knowledge no circumstances have arisen since the date of the last
financial statements as disclosed in this Letter of Offer which materially and adversely affect or are likely to affect, the trading
and profitability of the Company or their ability to pay their material liabilities within the next 12 months.
Except as stated in this Letter of Offer, there are no subsequent developments after the date of the report of our auditors dated
December 26, 2005 which we believe are expected to have material impact on the reserves, profits, earnings per share or
book value of the Company.
