Heads UP Ventures Auditors Report


To the Members of

HEADS UP VENTURES LIMITED

(Formerly known as THE MANDHANA RETAIL VENTURES LIMITED)

Report on the Audit of the Financial Statements Disclaimer of Opinion

We were engaged to audit the accompanying financial statements of Heads UP Ventures Limited formerly known as The Mandhana Retail Ventures Limited ("the Company"), which comprise the balance sheet as at 31March 2023 and the statement of profit and loss (including other comprehensive income), statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows for the year then ended and notes to the financial statements, including a summary of the significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

We do not express an opinion on the accompanying financial statements of the Company. In view of the significance of the matter described in the "Basis for Disclaimer of Opinion" section of our report, we have not been able to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding whether the use of going concern assumption is appropriate or not. Therefore, we are unable to conclude as to whether the aforesaid financial statements are presented in accordance with the applicable accounting standards and other recognized accounting practices and policies.

Basis for Disclaimer of Opinion

We draw attention to Note No. 37 of the standalone financial statements regarding preparation of the financial statements on going concern basis. Although, the company has registered a new brand "HUP" under its name, developed wide range of sample merchandises and recent launch of commercial brand but results of these plans are yet to be materialized. Hence, there still exists uncertainty regarding the future prospects of the business and the companys ability to continue as going concern. The Management and the Board of Directors believes that the Company will be able to meet all its contractual obligations and liabilities as they fall due in near future and therefore these standalone financial statements are prepared based on going concern basis. As we are unable to obtain sufficient and appropriate audit evidence about future business transaction thereof, accordingly, we are unable to conclude whether the Company will be able to continue as a going concern and the consequential implications arising therefrom on the standalone financial statements of the Company.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to Note No. 38 of the standalone financial statements regarding recoverability of security deposits of Rs.8.88 Cr given to directors/promoters against their office premises taken on rent by the company for its business purposes, which became recoverable from director/promoter since company has decided not to occupy the premises going forward during the year considering the complete downsize in business operations. The company is in the process of recovering these security deposits from director/promoters.

The Companys Board of Directors is responsible for other information. Other information comprises the information included in the Annual Report, but does not include the Standalone financial statements and our auditors report thereon.

Our opinion on the Standalone financial statements does not cover other information and we do not express any form of assurance, conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the Standalone financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the Standalone financial statements or our knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.

If, based on the work we have performed on the other information obtained prior to the date of this auditors report, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information; we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.

(Referred to in paragraph (ii)(A)(g) under Report on Other Legal and Regulatory Requirements section of our report of even date)

We have audited the internal financial controls with reference to financial statements of Heads UP Ventures Limited formerly known as The Mandhana Retail Ventures Limited ("the Company") as of 31 March 2023 in conjunction with our audit of the financial statements of the Company for the year ended on that date.

Managements Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls

The Companys management and the Board of Directorsare responsible for establishing and maintaining internal financial controls based on the internal financial controls with reference to financial statements criteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note. These responsibilities include the design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of its business, including adherence to companys policies, the safeguarding of its assets, the prevention and detection of frauds and errors, the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, and the timely preparation of reliable financial information, as required under the Companies Act,2013 (hereinafter referred to as "the Act").

Auditors Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Companys internal financial controls with reference to financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Guidance Note and the Standards on Auditing, prescribed under section 143(10) of the Act, to the extent applicable to an audit of internal financial controls with reference to financial statements. Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statements were established and maintained and whether such controls operated effectively in all material respects.

Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy of the internal financial controls with reference to financial statements and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of internal financial controls with reference to financial statements included obtaining an understanding of such internal financial controls, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. The procedures selected depend on the auditors judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the Companys internal financial controls with reference to financial statements.

Meaning of Internal Financial controls with Reference financial Statements

A companys internal financial controls with references financial statements is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A companys internal financial controls with reference to financial statements include those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the companys assets that could have material effect on the financial statements.

Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial controls with Reference to Financial Statements

Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls with reference to financial statements, including the possibility of collusion or improper management override of controls, material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. Also, projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls with reference to financial statements to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial controls with reference to financial statements may become inadequate because of changes inconditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Further, considering the Disclaimer of Opinion in main audit report and the inherent limitations of internal financial controls with reference to financial statements, there are limitations in consideration of such controls operating as at the balance sheet date for the future operations of the Company.

Opinion

In our opinion, the Company has, in all material respects, adequate internal financial controls systems over financial reporting. Based on selective verification of risk control matrixes, data made available to us digitally, such internal financial control over financial reporting were operating effectively as at March 31, 2023. Based on the internal financial controls with reference to financial statements criteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (the "Guidance Note").

II Audit Qualification (each audit qualification separately):

a) Basis for Disclaimer of Opinion of Audit Qualification:

Extract of Disclaimer of Opinion:

We draw attention to Note No. 3 of the standalone financial statements regarding preparation of the financial statements on going concern basis. Although, a company has registered a new brand "HUP" under its name, developed wide range of sample merchandises and is in the process of commercial launch of the brand but these plans are yet to be materialized. Hence, there still exists uncertainty regarding the future prospects of the business and the companys ability to continue as going concern. The Management and the Board of Directors believes that the Company will be able to meet all its contractual obligations and liabilities as they fall due in near future and therefore these standalone financial statements are prepared based on going concern basis. As we are unable to obtain sufficient and appropriate audit evidence about future business transaction thereof. Accordingly, we are unable to conclude whether the Company will be able to continue as a going concern and the consequential implications arising therefrom on the standalone financial statements of the Company.

Extract of Emphasis of Matter:

We draw attention to Note No. 4 of the standalone financial statements regarding recoverability of security deposits of Rs.8.88 Cr given to directors/ promoters against their office premises taken on rent by the company for its business purposes, which became recoverable from director/promoter since company has decided not occupy the premises going forward during the year considering the complete downsize in business operations. The company is in the process of recovering these security deposits from director/promoters.

b) Type of Audit Qualification: Qualified Opinion / Disclaimer of Opinion / Adverse Opinion

c) Frequency of qualification: Whether appeared first time / repetitive / since how long continuing

d) For Audit Qualification(s) where the impact is quantified by the auditor, Managements Views:

N.A.

e) For Audit Qualification(s) where the impact is not quantified by the auditor:

(i) Managements clarifications/revert on the impact of audit qualification:

Extract of Note from the Management:

The Companys license arrangement with Being Human - The Salman Khan Foundation (the Foundation), which was the core asset of the Company, which has been terminated in the financial year 2019-20. The Company has revisited its business strategy to address these uncertainty caused due to change in business model.

Due to discontinuation of the license agreement with the Foundation, the Company had resumed business development activities in line with its proposed business plans prepared by the management and board of directors of the company. However, uncertainties still do exist considering current market scenario and development of new brand without brand Ambassador, regarding Companys ability to continue as a going concern The Management, however, is reasonably confident of reviving Companys business given its reworked strategy of launching new brand.

On 6th June, 2022 the company has acquired brand "HUP" and "Device of Turtle" by Deed of perpetual assignment from Mr. Manish Mandhana and developed its new range of products and made some progress in

that direction. After commercial launch of the products and based on future business operations of the Company has certainty, that future cash flows and projected growth plans are critically dependent upon the materialization of viability of this event.

The Management and Board of directors has not shown any intention to liquidate the Company and in fact from the financial year starting from April - 2023 Company has started selling the inventories designed and manufactured. Accordingly, the financial results continue to be prepared on going concern basis which contemplates realization of assets and settlement of liabilities in the normal course of business and continuation of operations of the company under the brand.

Extract of the Management Revert on Emphasis Matter:

The company had given security deposit of Rs 888.55 Lakhs to Directors in the year 2012 (refer note no 8 in the financial statements) for use of the premises situated at "Peninsula Centre" Dr. S.S. Rao Road, Off. Dr Ambedkar Road, Parel, Mumbai 400012. The break-up of security deposit is as under;

Sr. No Name of the Key Management Personnel

Amounts (Rs In Lakhs)
1 Manish Mandhana - Promoter 437.50
2 Priyavrat Mandhana - Director 451.05

TOTAL

888.55

In Mar - 23 due to stress in liquidity and working capital, management of company has decided that there is no need of such premises considering current business operations and future business plans, hence company has not occupied the premises during the year. Now these securities deposits given to them became receivable. With regards to same the company has made communication with respective director/promoters against which positive confirmation is received from them confirming payment before 30th Sep, 2023.
