1. INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENTS Economies of different countries started recovering after unprecedented sharp fall in FY’09. The recovery has been impressive but burdened with some element of uncertainty. As a result of FY’09 meltdown most of the producers in Aluminium Industry resorted to strategies in response to the situation faced such as curtailing production, closures, etc. However, some of these producers considering the improved situation have subsequently re-started these facilities. Alumina & Chemicals During the year 2009, the world consumption of Alumina was 73.859 million MT against the world production of 74.309 million MT thus showing a surplus of 0.45 million MT. The world Alumina production and consumption declined by approx. 5.9 % and 5.8% respectively during 2009 as compared to 2008. In 2009, the spot price of alumina averaged around $249 a tonne. Prices showed signs of recovery in Q1, 2010 to an average of $340 a tonne, which reflected the improved outlook for aluminium. The refinery curtailments during the first half of the year 2009 reduced availability thereby providing necessary impetus for alumina prices to rise from rock bottom level of $180/tonne. The recovery in aluminium prices triggering smelter restarts saw alumina prices recover to above $300/tonne level. Stronger demand mainly from smelter restarts and an unprecedented level of curtailments in refining capacity helped the market to return to balance during the course of the year. Delayed restarts and fresh commissioning of refineries helped in the balancing act of fundamentals. Alumina demand and supply are expected to be balanced in medium term. Increase in bauxite and freight costs, as well as energy cost is likely to support the alumina price in medium-term. Aluminium During the year 2009, the world consumption of primary Aluminium was 34.341 million MT against world supply of 37.781 million MT, showing a surplus of 3.440 million MT. The world consumption declined drastically by approximately 8.2% while the supply declined by 5.9% respectively during 2009 as compared to 2008. Aluminium price averaged at $ 1664.8/T in 2009 which is 34% lower than the average price in 2008, primarily because of weaker demand for aluminium in major consuming countries. Lower consumption and a relatively weaker response from global aluminium production resulted in stocks build-up which stood at historical highs of 4.63 million tonnes at LME by the end of 2009. Analysts expect production to remain around current levels for most of 2010. 2. STRENGTH AND WEAKNESS Strength Your Company’s strength lies in its skilled and committed manpower, good quality bauxite reserves, efficient technology, various well planned and ideally located infrastructure facilities, efficient operations, production of good quality products at competitive cost, excellent customer service and commitment to good Corporate Governance practices in all facets of its operations. Weakness Your Company is affected by the wide fluctuations in the LME prices, exchange rate fluctuation, shortage of coal and limited product range. 3. OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS Opportunities Revival of world economy has opened many opportunities for your Company to grow. Grant of Mining Leases over Gudem and KR Konda bauxite blocks in Andhra Pradesh and proposed establishment of Alumina Refineries in Andhra Pradesh and Odisha will ensure your Company’s leadership position as one of the leading manufacturer of alumina in the world. Your Company will have over a million MT of surplus alumina on completion of 2nd Phase Expansion. Your Company can set up Aluminium Smelter Plants in India and abroad where energy costs are cheaper. Having good experience in operation of power plants will stand in good stead to enter into the business of Independent Power Producer. Your Company is exploring various options including Nuclear Power option in this direction. Nuclear Power is termed as the energy source of the future. Your Company’s foray into nuclear power generation will be a significant step in realizing the goal of becoming an Independent Power Producer.

Threats Being nearer to the Naxal infested areas could be a threat to your Company’s operations at Mines & Refinery. However, your Company has taken adequate security measures in coordination with the State and Central Governments to address the naxal threat. Although the State Government is very much supportive for the proposed Bauxite Mines and Alumina Refinery project in Andhra Pradesh, security concerns in view of the threat perception from Naxals may be a major impediment in achieving the target as per schedule. 4. SEGMENT-WISE PERFORMANCE For the year under review, your Company achieved net profit of ` 814 crore on a total income of ` 5,548 crore.

OUTLOOK Domestic Market Outlook The Indian economy showed strong resilience in FY’09 in withstanding the economic crisis and staged recovery largely on the back of stimulus packages by the Government. India witnessed a recovery as the GDP grew by approx. 7.4% in FY’10 from about 6.7% in FY’09. A sharp turnaround in the end-user segments of aluminium industry such as automobiles, industrial & infrastructure and thrust on power sector growth propelled the industry growth. The current demand-supply situation for aluminium is largely balanced with consumption in line with existing production plus imports and a relatively small volume of exports. However, the aluminium sector faces a significant concern of medium-term over-capacity due to projects pursued by the three major players in the country. Capacity expansion through planned projects would almost treble production to 4.4 million tonnes by 2013. Considering that all aluminium projects would begin commercial production with expanded capacity as envisaged, there could be at least two million tonnes of additional capacity for exports by 2013. India’s per capita consumption of aluminium is about 1.3 kg as against about 30 kg in the developed world for which the industry need to explore new application areas and untapped demand potential thereby setting up preference for aluminium in the future. International Outlook Aluminium Global aluminium consumption is expected to grow annually around 5% during the next decade, supported by continued urbanisation, industrialisation and economic development particularly in developing economies. Industry experts forecast that 2010 would witness considerable growth of the aluminium market generated by rising demand from the automotive and packaging sectors. Aluminium consumption is likely to grow by 12% in 2010 over 2009 because of such growth and of low base effect. Alumina For 2010 as a whole, alumina prices are forecast to average $325 a tonne, which is around 30 per cent higher than the average for 2009. In the short term, prices are expected to be supported by higher assumed world economic activity and thus, increased demand for aluminium. Over the medium term, spot alumina prices are projected to ease, as production increases following the commissioning of new refining capacity. 1,945 514 1,432 26% 44% 13% 36% 26% 4,095 53 2,895 55% 05% 26% 02% 01% 1,455 371 882 19% 32% 08% 42% 25% _ 217 5,847 _ 19% 53% 5,548* 1,155 11,056 10% 21%

6. RISKS & CONCERNS An important factor to keep in mind over the coming quarters would be the potential unwinding of some of the stock financing deals in LME. Because of these deals the aluminium market could be more sensitive than other commodities and base metals. This might be more of a point to watch for in late 2010 or even 2011. Evolving views on the timing of monetary policy changes, central banks’ exit strategies and the associated tightening of interest rates could impel speculative activity and give direction to Aluminium prices.

4.2 Related party transactions: Remuneration and loans to whole time directors are disclosed in Note No.1 of Additional information forming part of accounts. 5. SEGMENT REPORTING: 5.1 The Company has considered Chemicals, Aluminium and Electricity as the three primary business segments. Chemicals include calcined alumina, alumina hydrate and other related products. Aluminium includes aluminium ingots, wire rods, billets, strips, rolled and other related products. Bauxite produced for captive consumption for production of alumina is included under chemicals. 5.2 India and Outside India are the two geographical segments. Since all production and other facilities are located in India, segment assets except export debtors are shown under one geographic segment i,e. India. 5.3 Inter-unit transfer of Calcined Alumina is considered at lower of average price from export sales during the period less freight and cost plus 15.50% return on investment on gross fixed assets. For electricity, lower of the average sale price to GRIDCO and cost plus 15.5% return on investment on gross fixed assets (as per CERC guidelines), has been considered for transfer pricing. Earlier the segment transfers were considered at average export sales realization less freight for alumina and average sale price to GRIDCO for electricity and which have been changed from this period for more appropriate presentation of segment revenue/results. As a result of the above change in basis of pricing of inter segment transfer, the implication on yearly results between the earlier basis and revised basis are given below: (` in crore) Year ended Year ended 31st March 2010 31st March 2009 Segment Revenue a) Chemical (21.83) (184.19) b) Aluminium 0.00 0.00 c) Electricity (370.46) 0.00 TOTAL Less: Inter segment revenue Net sales/ Income from operations Segment Results: Profit before tax and interest a) Chemicals b) Aluminium c) Electricity (392.29) (392.29) – (16.15) 386.61 (370.46) (184.19) (184.19) – (184.19) 184.19 0.00

Absolute figures denote addition in revenue /profit, whereas those in bracket denote reduction in revenue/ profit. 5.4 Revenue and expenses have been identified to segments on the basis of their relationship to the operating activities. Revenue, expenses, assets and liabilities, which relate to the enterprise as a whole and are not allocable on a reasonable basis, have been included under Unallocated Common segment. 5.5 Segment report of electricity does not include electricity co-generated at Refinery Division, as it is an integral part of steam generation plant. 6. Previous year’s figures have been regrouped / rearranged wherever necessary to make them comparable.
