DIVIDEND

In view of the accumulated losses the Board regrets its inability to declare any dividend for the financial year ended 31st March, 2018.

OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE

The total income of the Company on a Standalone basis stood at INR 950.20 crores for the financial year ended on 31st March, 2018 as compared to the total income of INR 994.02 crores for the previous financial year ended on 31st March, 2017. The Company posted a Net Profit of INR 41.50 crores for the financial year under review as against the Net Profit of INR 36.22 crores for the previous financial year ended on 31st March, 2017 .

The past year has continued to be challenging for the Company. The progress with regard to construction has been slow. This is on account of lingering issues related to global and domestic slowdown, problems with land acquisition, environmental clearances, and also the stressed financial position of the Company.

Corporate Debt Restructuring (CDR) has been scrapped since Feb 12, 2018. Though we are working towards steering the Company out of cash flow stress, restrained banking facilities and issues related thereto, order intake remains sluggish, since many of the stalled projects are yet to be kick-started. Projects already awarded are generally progressing slow due to various continuing problems on ground, which remain unresolved over a period of time leading to cost escalations which remain unpaid. All these factors combined, have led to a vicious cycle culminating in a pile up of debt and high consequential costs.

To overcome the challenging business environment, the Company is rigorously undertaking the steps to realization of claims, selective settlement of past debts with its bankers, cost optimization, monetization of SPV assets and carefully bidding for new jobs offering good margins and better synergy apart from focusing on streamlining the internal organization and processes with emphasis on leveraging the Company's existing core competencies.

The company has undergone debt restructuring in the year 2013 under the framework of Corporate Debt Restructuring (CDR) of Reserve Bank of India which has since been scrapped by RBI in February 2018. The liquidity position of the Company is bound to turn around in view of steps undertaken by the Government and the Company. The Company is optimistic to regularize its banking facilities soon.

MATERIAL CHANGES AND COMMITMENTS

On the request of the Company, the State Bank of India (SBI) has agreed towards full and final settlement of all the dues of the Company to the Bank for a total sum of INR 280.00 Crores, payable in stages over next one year.

Further, C & C Myanmar Road Constructions Company Ltd. was incorporated as 100% Subsidiary of the Company as per the laws of Myanmar on 21.09.2017.

The BLPL-C & C, JV has been awarded a project by Govt. of Bihar for execution of Restoration and Lining work of Sone western Link canal for the contract price of INR 145,12,56,613.00 (Rupees One Hundred forty five crores twelve lakhs fifty six thousands six hundred thirteen only) on EPC Mode. The share of C & C in this JV is 72.50%.
