                                                     The year 2005-06 was a momentous one in the history of our Company and I am excited
                                                     as we ready to step into the next level of our growth.

                                                     My enthusiasm is derived from a key initiative, which we executed in 2005 and which
                                                     should catapult us into the top 10 auto ancillary companies in India by 2008.

                                                     Before I expound on the historic event, allow me to summarise our performance:

                                                      Topline registered a growth of 189 per cent

                                                      Profit grew by 830 per cent

                                                      Operating margin improved by 11 per cent

                                                      Return on invested capital was at 30 per cent
