Astra Microwave Products Limited:-Management guidance about the future growth prospects

ans)What sort of profitability do you foresee for the company upon procuring the 255 million contract from the Indian Meteorological Department ?

ans)We expect about 40% profit before tax and depreciation.

q)Could you enlighten us about your plans to merge with the Astra Microelectronic Mechnologies ?

ans)The Decision of merging Astra Micro Electronic Technologies with the parent Astra Microwave Products was taken during the last board meeting and the process is still going on.
q)Could you update us about your alliance with US-based Raytheon Company to explore opportunities in new technologies and products. ?

ans)The MOU with Raytheon was mainly aimed at becoming an offset partner of the supply of 120 fighter aircrafts tender of IAF that is in the process. Once IAF selects the aircraft supplier and Raytheon happens to be the Radars supplier for the air crafts, then Astra will be looked at as a possible offset partner of Raytheon. I expect the process to take at least two years from now.

q)What sort of financials could we expect in the forthcoming quarter and fiscal ?

ans)This quarter will be better than last year’s Q2. However current fiscal could be similar to that of last year.
q)How well is Astra Microwave Products placed vis-à-vis its peers, and what is its competitive edge in the industry?

ans)In the market segment we are, we do not have any peers. We are single source for many of our products. The competitive edge we have is the lead we have in developing and having approvals for our products from various approving agencies.

q)Diversification` is the buzz word today; so any plans to explore new areas ?

ans)As of now we are expanding our play ground just from India to Europe.

q)Would you like to convey any message to the investors and shareholders of the company ?

ans)Last few years of R&D efforts are likely to result in good production orders for Astra in the coming two to three years
