shareholders, patrons and well wishers for their


active support and co-operation in discharging the
responsibilities reposed on the Board during the
year under review. We also expresse our profound
gratitude to SABINCO, TCB, Janata Bank Ltd.,
Social Investment Bank Ltd., IFIC Bank Ltd. and
other financial institutions, the Securities and
Exchange Commission, DSE, CSE and various
government and semi-government agencies for
their continued support without which it would

Corporate Governance
Corporate Governance is the system through which
the company is directed, guided and controlled by
the Board, keeping in view of its accountability to

Exchange Commission is submitted with this

The Board of Directors also puts on record of its


deep appreciation for the dedicated services and
loyalty of the executives, officers and employees of
the company at all levels without which we could
not have come out successful and achieved this
result,
We also would like to acknowledge and Put record
our profound appreciation of the unconditional
loyalty of our valued clients towards us.

Increase of Authorised Capital


The company's Authorised Capital is Tk.40 crore.
In the present day scenario a large Cement
manufacturing company like Maghna Cement
Mills Ltd. could not go ahead with or implement
any plan of further expansion with such small
amount of Authorised Capital. In view of this the
Board of the Company is pleased to recommend to
increase the Authorised Capital of it from 40 crore
to 500 crore. Accordingly the issue of increase of
the Authorised Capital has been placed in this
General Meeting for your consideration.

Thanking you all,

On behalf of the Board
