During the year under review, the usage of flashlights using incandescent bulbs and D` size batteries came down very significantly. In addressing this, Eveready Industries started introducing a range of value-for-money, smart and efficient flashlights with LED` as the light source option - mostly using AA` batteries. Initially introduced as a value offer, this segment eventually became the standard and thereafter evolved as life-style products - in multifarious styling & colour, at several price points - both premium and popular. During the year under review, Eveready Industries` share of the organised flashlights market remained at 76%. In Electrical & Lighting Products business, Eveready Industries launched a few other products during the year - tube lights, LED lamps among others.In view of the outsourcing possibilities being available at very competitive prices, Eveready Industries` building and other assets at its tea blending and packaging unit at Chuapara, West Bengal were sold and transferred after receiving necessary consent of the shareholders by way of Postal Ballot during the year under review.

The company also maintained its market share of the organised flashlights market at 75% during the year under review. In electrical & lighting products business, Eveready Industries launched the new generation Light Emitting Diode (LED) bulbs towards the end of the year under review, which added significant technology edge to the product basket being offered by the company. The company`s distribution in general trade and modern retail provided a good platform to enter this category.

In the packet tea business, efforts were concentrated to scale up turnover in a few focused markets through extensive branding strategies and enhanced distribution drive. During the financial year ended 31 March 2016, Eveready Industries retained its market share in the batteries segment estimated at 50%.

In FY 2016, Eveready Industries diversified its product portfolio into a new product range, viz., small home appliances. The launch of appliances was initiated close to the end of the year. During the financial year ended 31 March 2017, Eveready Industries` batteries business category was adversely impacted due to lower consumer off-take and de-stocking in trade channels post demonetization, announced by the Government during the latter part of the year.

It has also launched a range of Air Purifiers to augment the portfolio. During the latter part of the year, Eveready Industries` Board of Directors authorized initiation of a suitable re-organization of the company`s packet tea operations in order to provide greater focus to this category. Later, the Board of Directors decided that the company would initiate discussions with McLeod Russel India Limited (McLeod) (the world`s largest tea plantation company in the private sector), for participating in a joint venture as a strategic business partner for development of the packet tea business through a separate entity. It is envisaged that with this measure, the company and McLeod will bring their respective skills of marketing & distribution and tea plantation knowledge to focus and develop the packet tea business to a much higher level and that this alliance will enable the company to upscale its FMCG operation. With regard to the news item in the media, `B M Khaitan - led Williamson Magor rolls out sale plan for flagship Eveready`, Eveready Industries clarified to the stock exchanges on 11 January 2019 that the company has always been updating the stock exchanges regularly with all the events, information, etc. that are required to be intimated under Regulation 30 of SEBI (LODR) Regulations, 2015. As and when applicable, appropriate disclosures which are required to be made pursuant to the SEBI (LODR) Regulations, the same shall be made by the company. The Competition Commission of India (CCI) issued an Order dated April 19, 2019, imposing penalty on certain zinc carbon dry cell battery manufacturers, concerning contravention of the Competition Act, 2002 (The Act). The penalty imposed on the Company was Rs71.55 Crores. The Company filed an appeal and stay application before the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal, New Delhi, (NCLAT) against the CCI`s said Order. The NCLAT vide its order dated May 09, 2019, has stayed the penalty with the direction of depositing 10% of the penalty amount within 15 days with Registrar of NCLAT which has been duly deposited by the Company. Based on legal advice received by the Company, it is believed that, given factual background and the judicial precedents, there are reasonable grounds on the basis of which NCLAT will allow the appeal and accordingly, the Company is hopeful on adjudication upon the quantum of penalty imposed or remand to CCI for de novo consideration. However, at this stage it is not possible for Company to quantify or make a reliable estimate of quantum of penalty that may be finally imposed on the Company. It may be noted that a certain amount of penalty will be levied on Company as it had also earlier filed an application under Lesser Penalty Regulations under the Act.
