 company (i.e. Acme Clothing Limited) on March 11, 2005, in terms of
 special resolution dated March 2, 2005 passed under Section 31 and
 Section 44 of the Act in a Meeting of the Shareholders of the
 The name of the Company was subsequently changed to Provogue (India)
 Limited and a fresh certificate of incorporation dated March 14,
 was issued by the Registrar of Companies, Maharashtra, Mumbai.
 The Company launched the fashion brand `Provogue' in March 1998 and
 within a short span of seven (7) years, it has established a strong
 brand identity in the minds of the urban consumer. The Company's
 philosophy of `creating trends' in fashion, an aggressive marketing
 strategy, coupled with high profile promotional events and its
 distribution strategy of retailing through selective stores and
 has resulted in Provogue being now positioned as a leading fashion
 brand in India.
 The company has, over a period of time, entered into hospitality
 business by opening a lounge under the brand name Provogue Lounge.
 These lounges work as a store in the daytime and are converted into
 restaurant and refreshment room in the evening with an extensive
 selection of food, beverages and entertainment at value prices.
 Recently, the Company acquired from Acme Global the entire business
 export of textile; textile machinery and textile related chemicals
 operates these businesses as its division under the name Acme
 Mr. Nikhil Chaturvedi promoted the Company along with his two
 Mr.Akhil Chaturvedi and Mr.Salil Chaturvedi, and friends Mr.Deep
 and Mr.Nigam Patel. Later, Mr. Rakesh Rawat was also inducted into
 company as a promoter.
 The evolution of the Company can be traced through the following
 Phase I : The launch
 The beginning of 1998 saw Provogue being launched in a Multi Brand
 Outlet, i.e. The Bombay Stores, Mumbai and progressing to 120 Multi
 Brand Outlets by the end of 1999. The first exclusive `Provogue'
 was opened in Lokhandwala Complex, Andheri, Mumbai in the year 2000.
 The Company was able to achieve market penetration by hosting
 shows across the country along with an aggressive advertising and PR
 campaign, which enabled it in persuading a potential customer to its
 brand and its outlets to buy the Company's apparels.
 Phase II : Building a brand
 The Company has established a distribution network across the
 covering Metro, A Class cities and B Class cities. Over the years,
 Company introduced other product categories like men's trousers,
 wallets and t- shirts, which received an overwhelming response from
 customers. Though the products introduced by the Company were doing
 exceedingly well, the total retail area available to the Company was
 not adequate and restricted it to a few Multi Brand outlets and one
 exclusive store in Mumbai. However, in terms of sales, the Company
 achieved sales of Rs.1,400 Lacs (US  mn approx.) in the year 2000.
 Phase III : Building of scope and scale for the brand   
 Although the sales continued to grow rapidly, expansion had still
 reached its true potential on account of the limited retail area. To
 meet the growing demand of its products, the idea of having its
 exclusive stores was conceived and thirty-six Studio Stores were
 planned to be opened in a time frame of about two years. To achieve
 further growth in sales, bollywood actor Fardeen Khan was signed up
 the brand ambassador in July 2001. This gave impetus to the
 marketing initiatives and endorsement by the brand ambassador
 reinforced the brand image as a trend-setting brand. The Company
 expanded its product lines to include knitwear, woolens, ties,
 handbags and other accessories. By December 2002, the Company had
 already opened twelve Studio Stores all across the country.
 Simultaneously, the Company also expanded its presence in large
 stores like Shopper's Stop and Piramyd all over India and was the
 brand to be introduced in Westside, a leading retail store.
 The Company started its first manufacturing facility at Daman on
 7, 2003, with an installed capacity of 2000 shirts per day. However,
 the company outsourced its requirements for trousers and other
 accessories. The manufacturers and suppliers are selected for supply
 the Company only if they meet the Company's quality standards. The
 manufacturer has to undergo quality control inspections and tests
 conducted by the Company before the trousers and accessories are
 branded as that of the Company.
 Phase IV : Consolidation
 With a view to expand its business and enter into the fabric
 business and exports, the Company entered into a Memorandum of
 Understanding (MOD) dated April 1, 2004 with Acme Global, a
 partnership concern, in which the existing promoters (other than Mr.
 Akhil Chaturvedi and Mr. Nigam Patel) are partners The understanding
