2. PERFORMANCE REVIEW AND THE STATE OF THE COMPANY'S AFFAIRS:

The Key Highlights of the Company's performance (Standalone) for the year ended March 31, 2023 are as under:

• Net Revenue from operations recorded at Rs. 902.51 Lakhs as against revenue of Rs. 678.57 Lakhs in the previous financial year.

• PBDT recorded at (Rs. 23.48) Lakhs as against last year's figure of Rs. 139.57 Lakhs.

• Net Loss after tax is recorded at Rs. (21.95) Lakhs against corresponding previous year's net profit of Rs. 147.39 Lakhs.

Due to the sad passing of our respected Director, Lt. Shri Umesh Katti, in September 2022, our company's operations have faced a slowdown. Alongside this, the relocation of our registered office from Maharashtra to Karnataka has led to a delay in administrative processes.

Unfortunately, these factors have together resulted in a negative standalone net profit for the fiscal year 2022-2023. You can find a detailed analysis of the company's current situation and future prospects in the 'Management Discussion and Analysis' section, where we provide thorough information.

In July 2022, our company took a significant step by participating in an auction to acquire the well- known sugar factory named Shri Shivsagar Sugar and Agro Products Limited.

At present, our company is engaged in business activities as per the Objectives stated in Clause III(A) of the Memorandum of Associates. However, considering the developments in various industries, we see several opportunities where we can operate more efficiently.

Therefore, the Company have decided to amend the objectives in our Memorandum of Association and venture into the emerging Sugar industry. This decision was made through a postal Ballot Notice dated October 19, 2022.

As of January 5, 2023, the company has undergone a name transition from HKG Ltd to UR Sugar Industries. Concurrently, there are on-going deliberations aimed at initiating trading activities encompassing goods and by-products sourced from sugar materials As part of our strategic efforts,

we have acquired land for setting up of greenfield sugar plant with distillery in the Belgaum District of Karnataka. This acquisition was recently completed under the banner of UR Sugar Industries Limited.

3. LISTING ON BOMBAY STOCK EXCHANGE

We're excited to share that our company's equity shares are now officially listed on the Main Board of BSE, starting from 26/04/2022. Before this, our company was listed on the SME platform of BSE. This step opens up more investment possibilities, giving our stakeholders better access and opportunities.

In the last financial year, the Company also applied for reclassification under Regulation 31A (10) of SEBI (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations 2015. This was done in response to the Open Offer made by Mr. Lava Ramesh Katti under SEBI (Substantial Acquisition of Shares and Takeovers) Regulations, 2011. The aim was to reclassify outgoing promoters, namely Yatin Bhupendra Shah along with Mrs. Vaishali Yatin Shah and HKG Money Tech Private Limited, as public shareholders.

In the previous financial year, the company requested a name change to the stock exchange, transitioning from HKG Ltd to UR Sugar Industries Limited. This request was approved by the Exchange, marking the successful completion of the name change process.

4. TRANSFER TO RESERVES

The Company has not transferred any amount to the reserves separately and adjusted the loss in the profit and loss account.

5. DIVIDEND

In view of the loss incurred for the current financial year 2022-23 and with an intention to conserve resources for future business operations of the Company, your Directors do not recommend any dividend for the financial year 2022-23.

6. CHANGE IN CAPITAL STRUCTURE OF THE COMPANY

The Authorised share capital of the company increased from Rs.14,00,00,000/- to Rs 40,00,00,000/- (Fourty Crore) divided into 20,00,00,000 equity shares of 2/- each. W.e.f. 30.09.2022

The issued, subscribed and paid-up equity share capital of the Company is Rs.10,50,00,000/- divided into 5,25,00,00 equity shares of 2/- each.

Except the above change there was no change in the Capital Structure of the Company.

7. DEPOSITS

During the year under review, your Company has not accepted any deposits within the meaning of Sections 73 and 76 of the Companies Act, 2013 read with the Companies (Acceptance of Deposits) Rules, 2014, hence there are no details to disclose as required under Rule 8(5)(v) and (vi) of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014.

8. SECRETARIAL STANDARDS:
