“The Worst is Behind Us”

The Company has made significant strides in achieving its business objectives built around net debt reduction, delivery of all past committed volumes and enhancing product mix through launches of higher margin products. In order to achieve this, the Company has completely re-tooled its business model and putting in place the ‘best in class’ project management and construction agencies. The large rental portfolio of the company continues to perform well with better rental realizations. However the leasing volumes remains muted due to overall economic conditions.

The closing of the Jawala transaction (sale of NTC Mills land, Mumbai) represents a major milestone in the Company’s debt reduction objective and will be fully reflected in the Q3 of the current fiscal year. The Company continues to make steady progress on the balance divestments which include Aman Resorts and Wind businesses and is very confident of their closure within the FY13 and achieve net debt reduction to Rs. 18,500 cr.

Ashok Tyagi, Group CFO said “The financial results for this quarter represent that the company is poised to get back on full growth mode. The Company is now well positioned and positive to leverage its leadership with planned launches in excess of 9 msf during the second half of the fiscal year. We truly believe that the worst is behind us!!

The Company remains steadfast in meeting its commitments to all its stakeholders in a fully compliant manner.
