DIRECTORS’ RESPONSIBILITY The Directors are responsible for the preparation of financial statements for each reporting period, that give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the company. COMMENTARY ENVIRONMENT The economy remained subdued and growth prospects difficult in the period under review. Annual inflation for the country closed in the negative at -1.20%. There was no significant improvement in the declining employment levels and the tight liquidity situation prevailing in the economy. Against this background customer spending power was curtailed hence initiatives by our competitors, and other retailers of different products and services, to reduce margins and remain competitive to stimulate demand. The trading environment remained tough with competition in the industry intensifying. Second hand tyres continued to cause price distortions in the market. The growth of the informal sector was identified as an opportunity to increase market share and appropriate strategies were initiated. OPERATIONS REVIEW Financial Performance A 9% decline in revenue to $14.3 million in comparison to the prior year, coupled with a reduction in margins due to competitive pressures mainly contributed to an overall loss recorded for the period under review. Overheads were 4% down when compared to the prior year due to cost containment measures undertaken. The harsh trading environment impacted negatively on the company’s ability to generate sufficient cash resulting in substantial reduction in the cash position at the close of the period in comparison to prior year. Retail & Services There was no significant movement in units of new tyres compared to prior year. During the latter half of the year there was greater focus on a balanced product portfolio in response to market trends. Participation in promotional activities and exhibitions presented opportunities which were explored, yielding positive results. To cater for market requirements a satellite service centre was opened in Bulawayo whilst the “Tyres-On-The-Go” outlets continued to make positive contributions in this regard. Retreading Throughput was 8% below prior year mainly attributable to market conditions, shortage of good quality casings in the market and credit control measures implemented during the year. Focus was on productivity and quality enhancement which resulted in improved margins. SUSTAINABILITY As an integral part of the Company’s business processes its Environmental Management System’s certification to ZWS ISO 14001:2004 was maintained. The Company is an active member of the Business Council for Sustainable Development Zimbabwe (BCSDZ). DIVIDEND DECLARATION In view of the loss incurred by the Company, the Board considers it inappropriate to declare a dividend for the year ended 31 March 2015. DIRECTORATE Three Non-Executive Directors, namely Messrs. Moses Tonderayi Chingwena, Benson Phillip Hlungupi Samudzimu and Rutenhuro James Moyo, were appointed as Directors with effect from 4 March 2015. Mr. Tafadzwa Andrew Chimanyiwa was appointed as an Alternate Director to Mr. R. J. Moyo with effect from 26 May 2015. Mr. Manish Bhatia, who was Chairman of the Board of Directors resigned from the Board on 28 April 2015. Mr. R.J. Moyo was duly elected as Chairman of Board of Directors with effect from 26 May 2015. We thank Mr. M. Bhatia for his contribution over the past six years OUTLOOK Although the trading environment is expected to remain tough, opportunities have been identified for revenue growth and improved profitability. These initiatives are anchored on existing customer base, a strategic based product and distribution portfolio and new business development. In addition, the ongoing cost containment measures are expected to contribute to the company’s return to profitability. For the retreading business, the initiatives started during the second six months of the year to recover volumes, including value addition services to big fleets, will be continued. APPRECIATION We record our thanks and appreciation to employees, customers, suppliers, various advisers and our colleagues on the Board for their positive contribution to the Company during the year under review.
