                                is being extensively used for false ceiling, doors, partitions pre-
                                fabricated structures, wall paneling, backliners and a variety of
                                other applications in residential, commercial as well as industrial

                                Being a new entrant in the segment, the Company expects to clock
                                profits only during FY11. However, Visaka has already made rapid
                                inroads into metropolitan cities and is gaining wide acceptance
                                among the consumers. Exports have already started to Dubai and
                                more enquiries from this region are coming up. The Company
                                manufactures two products from this division — ‘V-Board’ and ‘V-
                                Panel’. Both these products are resistant to Fire, Water & Termite.

Segment-wise Revenue for the
Half Year Ended Sept 30, 2010
                                Company started manufacturing ‘V-Board’ with HPSC technology
                                conforming to IS 14862-2000, since May 2008. V-board is a non-
                                asbestos product in par with the standards of the International
                                fibre cement sheets. V-boards are manufactured from special
                                grade cellulose fibre and inorganic binders of silica base. The
                                cement component adds to the overall strength and durability
                                while the pulp that is present within gives the board workability
                                and also flexibility.

                                A process called ‘autoclave’ helps attain crystalline structure that in
                                turn results in declared dimensional stability of V-Board. Thermal
                                conductivity of V-board is lower than any other substitute of its
                                nature, which makes V-board a good insulator also. Hence V-
                                boards are used as an energy saving aid to maintain the
                                temperature in closed air-conditioned rooms.

                                V-Board’s Applications include: False Ceilings, Wall Partitions, Wall
                                Paneling, Door Panels, Mezzanine Flooring, Back Liners, Structural
                                Glazing Back Lining and various others like Computer Table, Office
                                Table, Shoe Rack, Cupboards, Black Board, School Bench, Shelves,
                                Benches for Cafeteria, Doors etc.

                                                Visaka Industries Limited


Company has commenced the commercial production of V-Panel unit from January 01,
2010. V-Panel is another revolutionary building product, which is being manufactured with
technical collaboration from M/s Dantotech of Australia. The unit will utilize at least 8 to
10% of RBB production with a capacity of about 12,500 tonnes. The project cost is Rs.
12.50 crores and full capacity will have annual revenues of over Rs. 20 crores.

V-panels are light in weight, but sturdy in nature and have a uniform thickness & density.
Being light weight, handling, installation, dismantling and relocation are quite easy.
Specially designed tongue and groove (patent pending) arrangement ensures a prefect
joint and makes construction easier. Besides possessing good sound & thermal insulation,
fire rating of 60 mins, suitability for seismic & cyclone prone zones, these panels can
support concrete slab and can built 2 storey's without steel columns.

V-Panel’s Applications include: Partitions, Prefab Buildings, Mezzanine Floorings, Roofing,
False Floorings, Wall Claddings, External Fins, Compound Walls, External Walls, Load
Bearing Walls, Retaining Walls, Fences and various others.

Spinning Yarn does add to earnings…

manufacturing yarn using state-of-the-art Twin Air Jet Spinning technology from Murata,
Japan, with 28 MTS machines equivalent to 60,000 spindles. Being a dominant player in
this industry segment, Visaka produces over 10,000 metric tonnes of yarn per year and
export about 4,000 tonnes to countries around the globe. Its range of products include:
Melange Yarns, High Twist Yarn and specialty yarns with different blend styles. The

Major Revenue contribution - Fibre Cement Sheets…

Fibre Cement Products continue to be in demand because of the industry’s effort in
making in-roads into rural markets, its affordability, and other qualities such as corrosion
resistance, weather and fire proof nature.

Visaka's high-tech Fibre Cement plant is a fully automated factory incorporating the latest
and most sophisticated technology. This has resulted in consistency in physical properties
and strength, which far exceeds the standards prescribed by I.S.I. The company expects
the expansion of its Pune plant to be completed by June 2010. This expansion shall mark
an increase in the production capacity from 72,000 tonnes to 1,00,000 tonnes.

                                                         Visaka Industries Limited

  Road ahead:

      Company is setting up a plant at Sambalpur, Orissa for manufacturing Fibre Cement
      Sheets, with a proposed capacity of about 2,18,000 tonnes. Land has already been
      acquired and Terms of Reference (TOR) clearance from Ministry of Environment and
      Forests (MOEF) was also obtained for the same. This plant is expected to commence
      production by April 1, 2011.

      For upgrading from thatched and tiled roofing’s there is no other affordable and
      durable roofing material for the rural poor other than Fibre cement sheets. Being an
      experienced and leading player in the segment with multiple-plant locations, Visaka
      Industries looks forward to tap this increasing potential in rural areas.

      The cement fibre sheets’ market potential in India is estimated at 4 Million mts per
      annum. The market characteristics for cement boards over the coming year looks
      positive because of intense construction activity and shift of consumers from particle
      boards and plywood to cement reinforced sheets.

      The company has set up its plants in multiple locations, spread across the country to
      cater to the increasing demands. Company’s multiple-plant location strategy is worked
      out in such a way that each plant would be able cater to the production requirement of
      surrounding area of 500 kms. This is helping the company to reduce its cost
      component incurred on transportation of raw materials and finished goods.
