Company Progress:

Everonn Education Limited is a company with a dream, to satisfy the
educational requirements of every eager learner across the globe. We aim to
be the answer to one's call for quality education. Founded 23 years ago,
Everonn Education Limited today is the largest VSAT education network in
the World. Everonn has a devoted team of close to 3000 professionals
including teachers, content developers and administrators working across

Currently India is going through one of its finest times in the field of
education. The passing of the Right to Education Bill will have great
significance for India. The growth of Indian economy will achieve a double
digit growth rate. Keeping with the trend we are proud that our revenues
and profits have both grown. Everonn posted consolidated revenue of Rs.2935
million for the year ended 31st March 2010, against Rs. 1447 million in the
corresponding period in the previous year ended 31st March 2009, showing a
growth of 103%. The PAT has risen by 106% to Rs. 455 million as on 31st
March 2010 from Rs.221 million in FY09.

The EBITDA margins increased by 99% to Rs. 1010 million as compared to
Rs.512 of the previous year. The net worth of the company increased to
Rs.2582 million from Rs.2071 million. The consolidated EPS stands at
Rs.30.06 compared to Rs.14.87 in FY09.

ViTELS has recorded revenue of Rs.1418 million a 91 increase over FY09
(Rs.743 million). ICT schools under the PPP/Government segment stands at
5862 on 31st March 2010. The subsidiaries have also shown impressive
growth-Everonn Education Resources Solutions Limited-records revenue of
Rs.698 million for FY10 and Toppers Tutorial Private Limited records a
revenue of Rs. 131 million.

At present Everonn has 8,492 learning centres across the length and breadth
of India reaching out to more than 3 million students across 27 states.

Industry Overview:

India has the largest student population in the world with over 13.5cr
pupils in primary education followed by China at over 12.1 cr pupils at
this level. Educating such a large population is not only an expensive task
but also a very difficult one. This task is being handled primarily by the
government through its school infrastructure and large budgetary outlays.
India is home to the largest growth of potential consumers of education
services in the world. The Government spend is approximately at 3.7% of GDP
which is around $30bn and an $50bn annual spend on private education ($80bn
by 2012E) 14% CAG R over FY08-12E. This has created one of the largest
education networks of around 10 lakhs schools and 18000 higher education
institutes in India.

India's public spend on education amounts to approximately 5.2% of the
world's cumulative public spend, but the country is home to 20% of the
population in the target group which is highly disproportionate considering
the global distribution patterns of public education expenditure and
population. The role of private educational institutions have proliferated
rapidly over the past decades with K-12 segment estimated at US$ 20bn,
private professional colleges at US$ 7bn and tutoring at US$5bn. Out of 1
million existing schools, as many as 75000 schools are privately run. It is
pertinent to note that the private educational institutions dispense
education to around 40% of the total students enrolled in India (219 mn)
assuming that only 7% of the total schools are private. This is despite K12
(schools) being a focus area for the government as less than 10% of the
total public expenditure on education is assigned to higher and university
education. As a result, 77% of India's 18,000 HEls are private.


The government intends to raise the general literacy rate in India in line
with which, it introduced the Right to Education Bill 2005. This Bill seeks
to guarantee free elementary education to every child between the age of 6
and 14 years. There has been significant growth in infrastructure, but the
implementation process has been slow and a huge gap still remains. The very
nature of this mission is to complete the task of improving the literacy
levels of India in a time-bound manner. The demand for upper primary school
would be greater than the demand for primary schools

In the last five years, the government has been focusing on the Education
Sector through increased fund allocations. This amount would be spent under
various schemes like the Sarva ShikshaAbhiyan (SSA), the Midday meal
scheme, Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya and teacher's education.

The government has imposed an Education cess on income tax to fund its
various programs, which target to improve the quality and reach of
education in India. This cess is used to fund programs like the SSA. This
will go a long way in improving literacy levels in India and enhancing the
implementation and execution of various schemes undertaken by the
government to increase the reach and improve the quality of education in
India. Collection of Education cess will also help in providing subsidies
and aids to a large number of these institutions to improve accessibility
for the lower and middle class families to educate their children. For the
11th Five year Plan, the Centre has allocated a 6 times higher spend on


Education which was mainly under States subjects has seen a substantial
increase in Central Government's intervention since 1987 when New Education
Policy was announced. Allocations are made to India's Human Development
Resources Ministry and two departments are Department of School Education &
Literacy and Department of Higher Education.

The Union Budget for 2010-2011 has identified the need to have a well,
regulated education system of a global standard. In Budget 2010-11 a total
of Rs. 42036 crore have been provided for allocation to Education. The
allocation for Department of School Education and Literacy is Rs. 31036
Crore and allocation for Department of Higher Education is Rs. 11000 Crore.
The above allocation is 15% higher than the previous year's allocation.
This includes an allocation of Rs.15,000 crore for Sarva Siksha Abhiyan
(SSA), the major flagship programme for universalisation of elementary
education and Rs. 9,300 crore for the national scheme of mid-day meals.

Plan allocations for School education have been increased by 16% to
Rs.31036 Crores. Apart from this states have also an access to Rs. 3675
Crore for elementary education under the 13th Finance Commission. Rs. 4675
Crore have been kept for Secondary Education, which includes Rs. 1385 Crore
on Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti.

An allocation of Rs. 1300 Crore has been provided to Adult education.
Allocation to adult education has been more than doubled increasing it from
Rs. 450 crore to Rs. 1,300 crore. the major beneficiary being the recently
restructured and renamed Sakshar Bharat Programme.

With strong economic growth there is a greater urge to address the issues
on mass education. The government has correctly identified greater private
participation as a method to increase the efficiency of spending. This has
resulted in greater outsourcing by government to the private sector and
also most robust private models to participate directly in this sector.


As India's first education and training company to offer satellite-enabled
learning, Everonn is a pioneer in facilitating education using breakthrough
technologies. With its unwavering passion, Everonn has been on a constant
quest to be the first to capitalize on the latest in pedagogy and
technology as a tool to improve learning across the country. With dedicated
teams of market and education experts, the company has been on the
forefront of heralding the next advancement in learning, thus becoming a
distinctive player in bringing knowledge to students across geographical
and cultural borders.

Everonn's unrivalled reach in providing a blend of traditional and
digitized content to the schools, colleges and retail segments has helped
the company offer quality education to students even in the most remote
parts of India. The company's efforts has borne fruit in an extensive and
well-connected network of schools, colleges and retail training centers
that deliver best-inclass content through both conventional as well as
cutting-edge modes of learning. Everonn's firm foothold in the web-based
classes as well as the test preparatory guidance arenas has further
increased its ability to help change millions of students' lives.


Research is the result of advancing knowledge created in the past.

Content development backed by in depth research is a key area of specialty
at Everonn. Everonn's commitment to ensuring quality education to students
across the country is also reflected in the care taken to ensure that every
one of its strategic business units and subsidiaries receive the best
possible support in terms of content and technology. The subject experts at
Knowledge Resource Development & Research (KRDR), Everonn's content support
division, have been chosen specifically for their long years of academic
and industry-related experience. The unique and fresh content created by
these experts is constantly upgraded to provide only the best and most up-
to-date texts for students. The instructional material is generated after a
long process of research, which relies on best practices and proven
educational techniques. Our Content Development Team includes 6 Doctorates,
over 100 in house content developers and over 200 independent expert

Leading and experienced educationalists, research associates, faculty,
content developers and animators form this team while Everonn's vision and
zeal to enable a better-educated society drive it.


Education a powerful agency, which brings about the desired changes in the
economical, social and cultural existence of a nation is shaped and moulded
by the human personality called the teacher, who plays a pivotal role in
the system of education. One of the major concerns of Everonn is the
shortage of such qualified and dedicated personnel, something that we are
trying to address. This is a problem world over. Excellent educators are
generally restricted to the major metros thus leaving the rest of the
country less attended to. Fine quality education being restricted to only
certain pockets is unfair and must be seriously dealt with. This is
achieved by providing education and training solutions through the
satellite-based Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) Technology, an area we
excel in and pioneered in India.

Everonn's core aim is to nurture excellence in the professional and
personal growth of geographically dispersed students by developing a unique
study culture amongst them. This is achieved by providing education and
training solutions through the satellite-based Very Small Aperture Terminal
(VSAT) Technology.

This Live and Interactive Learning and Training Platform has redefined
access to education in India. It enables students to have interactive
sessions with instructors and peers across the country, thus truly bridging
the urban-rural divide. Everonn is equipped with several state-of-art
studios/lecture halls from where expert teachers deliver classes using
presentations, video, audio and digital content to effectively communicate,
engage and interact with students in classes spread across geographical
locations. With VSAT, a single instructor can teach students across the
country without compromising on the quality of learning.

Everonn has the expertise to design wired and wireless knowledge and
training delivery platforms' to meet the educational needs and the
technological capabilities to stream relevant content simultaneously and
seamlessly through VSAT, Broadband and the 3G Spectrum (Mobile).


Leveraging the power of computers and using a blend of Internet, mobile and
satellite communication technologies, Everonn has taken quality and
affordable education to the reach of millions of students across the
country even in the most remote corners of India. Everonn aims at educating
the mass! Conducting classes in schools and colleges were computer
education was improbable idea; Everonn today reaches a wide cross segment
of learners. Right from providing infrastructure to providing schools with
proficient teachers, Everonn stands strong as a complete education solution

Occupying every space, from Kindergarten to the Business Schools and
beyond, Everonn targets at providing the educational needs of all age
groups. This elevates Everonn to a '360 degree education and training
solution provider status'. Currently centered in India, Everonn aspires to
take its business model and operations to the rest of the world.


Institutions have varying requirements and the private sector may be able
to offer innovative solutions that offer quality services and value for
money. An inefficient public education system, high socio-aspirational
value attached to education and increasing affordability have all converged
to drive demand for quality education (synonymous with private institutes).
The $50bn education market, estimated to expand to $80bn by 2012, portends
a great opportunity at hand for wealth creation.

While inefficiencies in the public education system and price discovery
have created a substantial opportunity in the private education space in
india, there is a dearth of players across segments offering scale. We
believe this is the key reason for the sector to have attracted limited

Therefore the Opportunities for the new initiatives are rising across the
gamut of public/private partnerships, with ICT (Instructional &
Communication Technology) at schools an early success story. Policy
planners are beginning to emphasise PPP and we think this could create
revenue-generating models for the private sector.

We see numerous opportunities, including:

* Relocate or build new schools, colleges, universities or job centres and
provide facilities management for the new buildings/campuses. Projects
might involve land swaps or enable the private sector provider to generate
a third party revenue stream from the extant infrastructure.

* Build facilities for education institutions with the potential for third-
party income generation, such as sports or academic/conference facilities.

* Refurbish existing assets and/or provide facilities management.

* Provide information systems that ensure the continued availability of
hardware and software over a period of time, or allocate to the private
sector some administrative functions. There may be opportunities for third-
party income generation by selling excess capacity.
