Investment Projects Through IPO Proceeds

SETTING UP A MANUFACTURING FACILITY IN BANGLADESH

Funds raised as per the Prospectus – LKR 515,423,927

The proposal was to acquire land at a cost of LKR 133,000,000 and to construct a building thereon at a cost of LKR 180,000,000; as estimated by the Management of JAT based on the experience gained through its export presence in Bangladesh and setting up similar facilities in Sri Lanka.

However, given the volatility in the world economy, JAT decided to rent a building for a period of five (5) years instead of constructing a facility. Funds were invested in procuring and setting up the required plant and machinery. Currently, the project has been completed and manufacturing has commenced.

Accordingly, the overall funds not utilized/saved in completing the project is LKR 347,183,941 of which LKR 101,000,000 is proposed to be invested in an Alkyd resin plant within the same premises, which would enable JAT to manufacture the main raw material for Bangladesh as well, which would be a backward vertical integration. This would leave a balance of approximately LKR 246,183,941 from this project.

SETTING UP A STATE-OF-THE-ART R&D FACILITY

Funds raised as per the Prospectus – LKR 433,165,000

The initial plan was to purchase a land and construct the R&D centre. However, with the abnormal increase in construction cost, depreciation of the Sri Lankan Rupee, and import restrictions due to the USD shortage, the Management opted to rent the laboratory space from the Sri Lanka Institute of Nanotechnology (Private) Limited (SLINTEC) for a period of five (5) years. Funds were allocated to purchase the necessary equipment with 85% of the requirement being imported and commissioned, thus enabling the researchers to commence operations as scheduled. The balance of 15% of the laboratory equipment is in transit. A further LKR 58,000,000 of the IPO funds is to be spent on the project.

Accordingly, the overall funds not utilized/saved in completing the project is LKR 195,626,691/-
