  烟草在线据印度新闻报道编译  卷烟及酒店集团ITC的主席Y . C. Deveshwar说,去年宣布的2300亿卢比的投资计划可能会推迟一年左右。他还说,计划着进入乳制品业务。

  在公司的第100届年度会议后的媒体见面会中的讲话中,他说该计划涉及到了经营的各个方面,5年的时间表推迟了。

  “我们越来越不满意执行速度。多重批准和土地问题,都拖延了项目,现在可能需要6年的时间。但是总的来说进展还在轨道中,”他说。

  在西孟加拉邦,其对一个食品加工厂的投资计划遇到了土地障碍,该土地此前已经被划拨了,成为一个有争议的问题。

  他说,公司正在巩固其在快速消费品领域的业务,并计划进入乳制品行业。“ITC从事食品业务,印度是世界上最大的牛奶生产商。第一个项目设立在比哈尔的芒格,这里已经推出了畜牧业项目”。主席说,巴氏杀菌牛奶、脱脂奶粉、奶酪和巧克力是正在开发的一些产品。

  他说,在5年内,公司的非烟业务将盈利。“从现在开始的5年内,这个领域将获得可观的利润,”他说。值得一提的是Deveshwar先生目前是连续第二次担任主席,将在5年后到期。

  在问及他的继任者,他说主要原则将是寻找具有领导特质、价值观和充沛精力的人士。“然而,谈论这些事情还太早,”他说。

  谈及在竞争酒店公司的投资时,他说,ITC有大约500亿卢比的“临时流动资金”。“我们在许多地方部署投资。但是每当我们投资于股权时,我们把它放在我们精通的领域。我们的投资局限于我们经营的领域,”他说。

  谈及提出提高引发公开售股门槛的新收购法时,他说,尽管新法还没有宣布,但是如果价格适当ITC将进一步在东印度饭店进行投资,或者如果价格进一步提高的话,它甚至可能出售所持有的股权。

ITC's investment plan may be delayed by a year

  Cigarette-to-hotels conglomerate ITC's Rs.23,000-crore investment plan announced last year, may get delayed by an year or so, Chairman Y. C. Deveshwar said. He also said that plans were afoot to enter the diary business.

  Addressing a pressmeet after the company's 100th annual meeting, he said that the plan across all sectors of operations and with a five-year timeline was getting delayed. "We are not happy with the pace of execution. Multiplicity of approvals, and land issues were delaying projects, which may now take six years. But they are by and large on track," he said.

  In West Bengal too, its investment plans for a food processing unit has hit the land hurdle with the land earlier allotted, emerging to be a disputed one.

  He said that the company was keen to consolidate its presence in the FMCG business and was planning to get into dairy sector. "It (ITC) is in the umbrella of foods business and India is the world's largest milk producer. The first project has been set up in Munger in Bihar where an animal husbandry programme has been launched". The Chairman said that pastuerised milk, skimmed milk powder, cheese and chocolate were some of the items that were being explored.

  He said the company's non-tobacco business would become profitable within five years. "Five years from now this segment will earn handsome profits," he said. It may be mentioned that Mr. Deveshwar is currently on a second term as chairman, which expires five years later.

  To questions on his successor he said that the key criteria that would be looked for were leadership traits, values and vitality. "However, it is too early to talk of these things," he said.

  On investments in rival hotel companies he said that ITC had ‘temporary liquidity' with funds to the tune of around Rs.5,000 crore. "This we deploy in many places for investment. But whenever we invest in equity, we put it in segments where we have domain knowledge. Our investments are confined to areas where we operate," he said.

  On the new takeover code which proposes to raise the threshold for triggering an open offer, he said that while this was yet to be notified, ITC would invest (in East India Hotels) further if the price was good or it might even sell if the price went up further.
