For the quarter ended March31, 2014, the company’s net revenue stood at Rs 693.47 crore as against Rs 706.99 crore of Q4 of previous year.  The EBIDTA for the period stood at Rs 56.38 crore compared to Rs 22.19 crore for the corresponding quarter in the previous year.  Net loss for the period stood at Rs 14.17 crore as compared to a loss of Rs 38.06 crore in Q4 FY13.
For the financial year ended March 31, 2014, the net revenue stood at Rs 2629.12 crore as compared to Rs 2910.13 crore in the previous year. For full year, EBIDTA stood at Rs 145.08 crore as compared to Rs 243.19 crore in the last fiscal year.  Net loss for FY14 stood at Rs 8.18 crore as against profit of Rs. 41.26 crore during last financial year. 
The last financial year saw slow demand for the polyester industry in India as well as overseas. The industry faced lots of economic challenges in term of squeezing of margin due to the high prices of raw material along with the interrupted supply. The last financial year witnessed one of the worst phases for the rupee and fluctuation in the crude oil prices have led to the squeezing of margins. However these prices weren’t passed to the customers thus forcing the margins to be lower. 
India has low per capita man-made fibre consumption at 3.0 kg per annum, as against the global average of 8 kg per annum. This indicates the untapped potential for the polyester manufacturers, providing scope to grow positively in the coming time. Indo Rama has demonstrated its resilience in the challenging economic times last year in the adverse conditions. We have also taken some cost improvement initiatives, which will further add to our competitiveness. With the Polyester prices bottoming out and rupee stabilizing, we expect the sentiments and performance to improve from here.
