Mumbai, March 14, 2006 : Essel Propack, the global leader in laminated tubes, today announced the audited consolidated global results for the year ended December 31, 2005. The Company reported a substantial increase of 22% in its global revenues for the year 2005. The sales have exceeded Rs. 8 Billion mark (Rs. 8,166 Million) while the net profit touched Rs. 902 Million, aggregating a growth of 11.48% over the same period of 2004. In USD term the growth in sales and net profit is 26% & 15% respectively. The international operations of the Company have contributed 69% (up from 65% in the year 2004) of the consolidated revenue, thus reflecting the trend of increasing overseas growth.

The Board of Directors of Essel Propack which met today, announced two major decisions as a part of increasing the shareholder value.

The Board announced a split in the face value of the share. The Board has recommended to the shareholders a share split from the present Rs. 10/- per share to Rs. 2/- per share and thereby reducing the face value of the share. This will go a long way in enhancing the liquidity of the shares.

Further, considering the cash flow and the continuing robust business performance, announced a special dividend of Rs. 12/- per share. The dividend will be subject to the shareholders’ approval during the AGM proposed on May 6, 2006.

While making the announcements in Mumbai, Ashok Goel, Vice Chairman & Managing Director said, “The low liquidity of our shares was always a concern, which we believe will be resolved with this step.“ Regarding special dividend, he added, “Giving value to our shareholders is of paramount importance to us”.
