The Members of
RAMKY INFRASTRUCTURE LIMITED
We have audited the accompanying Standalone financial statements of RAMKY INFRASTRUCTURE LIMITED ("the Company") which comprise the Balance Sheet as at March 31, 2016, the Statement of Profit and Loss, Cash Flow Statement for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information for the year then ended.
Management's Responsibility for the Standalone Financial Statements
The Company's Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section 134(5) of the Companies Act, 2013 ("the Act") with respect to the preparation and presentation of these Standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, including the Accounting Standards specified under Section 133 of the Act, read with Rule 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014. This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding the assets of the Company and for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls, that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.
We have taken into account the provisions of the Act, the accounting and auditing standards and matters which are required to be included in the audit report under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made thereunder.
We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing specified under Section 143(10) of the Act. Those Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and the disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors' judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal financial control relevant to the Company's preparation of the financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of the accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by the Company's Directors, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified audit opinion on the standalone financial statements.
Basis for Qualified Opinion
We refer to Note 31 of the standalone financial statements with regard to recognition of deferred tax assets on unabsorbed depreciation, business losses and other timing differences, amounting to Rs 396.02 Crore. Based on unexecuted orders on hand, the Management is confident that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets will be realized. However, in our opinion, in absence of virtual certainty supported by convincing evidence that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which the deferred tax assets can be realized, such recognition is not consistent with the principles enunciated under Accounting Standard 22, "Accounting for Taxes on Income" (AS 22). Had the aforesaid deferred tax assets not been recognised, profit after tax for the period ended would have been lower by Rs 396.02 Crore.
In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the effects of the matter described in the basis for qualified opinion paragraph above, the aforesaid financial statements give the information required by the Act in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, of the state of affairs of the Company as at March 31, 2016, and its Profit and its Cash Flows for the year ended on that date.
Emphasis of Matters
Attention is invited to
a. Note 32 to the standalone financial statements in respect of existence of material uncertainties over the realisability of certain construction work in progress, trade receivables and loans and advances aggregating to Rs 508.49 Crore, which are subject matters of arbitration proceedings/negotiations with the customers and contractors due to foreclosure of contracts and other disputes. The management of the Company, keeping in view the status of negotiations and the outcome of arbitration proceedings and the basis of which steps to recover these amounts are currently in process, is confident of recovering the aforesaid dues. In view of pending billing of project WIP/slow progress/termination of these projects, and lack of other alternate audit evidence to corroborate management's assessment of recoverability of these balances, we are unable to comment on the extent to which these balances are recoverable.
b. Note 33 to the standalone financial statements in respect of recognition of a claim of Rs 225.04 Crore during the year and related trade receivable and other current assets aggregating to Rs 225.04 Crore as at March 31, 2016, on account of cost overrun and additional quantities executed in respect of an EPC contract with its subsidiary concessionaire. The claim of the concessionaire company is assessed by the lenders independent engineer and the concessionaire is in the process of availing additional funding/refinance from the lenders.
c. Note 34 to the standalone financial statements with regard to
insurance claim due to floods on one of the Company's project in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, the company has recognized insurance claim revenue aggregating to Rs 62.94 Crore to the extent measured reliably and accounted/charged off related additional costs incurred towards damage by floods.
d. Note 35(a) to the standalone financial statements in respect of write back of the 'liabilities no longer required' outstanding for a long period aggregating to Rs 164.95 Crore. The management is confident that the liabilities no longer required and no material adjustment will be required.
