Dr Amit Rangnekar

Electra Partners invested in Moser Baer in 1999 Our shareholding has come down from 18% to 6% today, but we have made a nice profit on our initial investment But every time we have ever thought of divesting, we have always felt there will be a significant upside in the near future

Core optical discs business to solar energy & home entertainment In leveraging existing competencies, MB diversified into another high growth segment Photo Voltaics (PV) If we can leverage our manufacturing strength in a business we think about it. Solar was obvious because it involves layers of a substrate just like optical discs $130 million investment in state-of-the-art photovoltaic (PV) cell plant at Greater Noida Each of the machines has to come on 6 jumbo jets. Just the leg of the machine is the size of our conference room The PV energy market will be worth $1 trillion in 15 years & we do not want to be a bit player. I firmly believe we can take a 10% market share and be one of the top 2-3 players in this market worldwide

Moser Baer Photo Voltaic (MBPV), wholly-owned subsidiary Production in Greater Noida by April 2008 Initial capacity 40MW, rapidly scale up to 80MW Also invested in crystalline silicon wafers & concentration solar energy Only global company with manufacturing & expertise in all 3 methods to generate energy from solar power Without any significant breakthroughs in technology, the cost of generating solar power from PV panels will drop 40% just through manufacturing efficiencies. Such a steep decline, will make solar energy from thin film PV cells on par with or maybe even slightly cheaper than thermal energy Aggressive entry by manufacturing solar cells & modules Initial project cost Rs 260 crore (60 mn)

Uncompromising adherence to Class 100 clean-room conditions, climate control, superior machinery, the finest raw materials Spirit of zero error manufacturing 100 people work 24 hours a day on process design 2% annual revenues on R&D, value engineering, product quality, yields & lowering production cost Positioned globally as one of the largest data storage media producers with stringent quality standards

India still uses a lot less power than the global average. We can be a global leader in solar power Per capita electricity consumption in India in 2006 was 631 kiloWatt hours (KWhr). In Canada, worlds highest per capita power consumer, a whopping 17,179 KWhr International Energy Agency GOI- Per capita power consumption 1000 KWhr by 2012 India has to build renewable energy and solar energy as alternatives to conventional energy needs Difficult to double power production through conventional methods in the next 48 months Emerging technologies & price reduction in solar energy products could significantly expand this market MB may just pull it off

I have the view from the sky, he knows the nitty-gritty of things Puri Sr You know, I would like to think of myself as a manager and not a promoter. I have to constantly do things to prove that I am not here because of who I am, but because I am good. As a shareholder I would be insane to sit here if someone else could give me a better return Puri Jr Decentralisation is a key challenge as the need for less hands-on control rises Now planning to sell small pen drives If you think about it, crystalline silicon solar cells are semiconductors too.
