NOTE [11]

Disclosure pursuant to Ind AS 107 “Financial Instruments: Disclosures”: Market risk management

(a) Foreign exchange rate and interest rate risk:

The Company regularly reviews its foreign exchange forward and option positions and interest rate swaps, both on a standalone basis and in conjunction with its underlying foreign currency and interest rate related exposures. The Company follows cash flow hedge accounting for Highly Probable Forecasted Exposures (HPFE) hence the movement in mark to market (MTM) of the hedge contracts undertaken for such exposures is likely to be offset by contra movements in the underlying exposures values. However, till the point of time that the HPFE becomes an on Balance Sheet exposure, the changes in MTM of the hedge contracts will impact the Balance Sheet of the Company. Further, given the effective horizons of the Company’s risk management activities which coincide with the durations of the projects under execution and could extend across 3-4 years and the business uncertainties associated with the timing and estimation of the project exposures, the recognition of the gains and losses related to these instruments may not always coincide with the timing of gains and losses related to the underlying economic exposures and, therefore, may affect the Company’s financial condition and operating results. Hence, the Company monitors the potential risk arising out of the market factors like exchange rates, interest rates, price of traded investment products etc. on a regular basis. For on Balance Sheet exposures, the Company monitors the risks on net unhedged exposures.

(i) Foreign exchange rate risk:

In general, the Company is a net receiver of foreign currency. Accordingly, changes in exchange rates, and in particular a strengthening of the Indian Rupee, will negatively affect the Company’s net sales and gross margins as expressed in Indian Rupees. There is a risk that the Company may have to adjust local currency product pricing due to competitive pressures when there have been significant volatility in foreign currency exchange rates.

The Company may enter into foreign currency forward and option contracts with financial institutions to protect against foreign exchange risks associated with certain existing assets and liabilities, certain firmly committed transactions, forecasted future cash flows and net investments in foreign subsidiaries. In addition, the Company has entered and may enter in the future, into non-designated foreign currency contracts to partially offset the foreign currency exchange gains and losses on its foreign-denominated debt issuances. The Company’s practice is to hedge a portion of its material foreign exchange exposures with tenors in line with the project/business life cycle, however, the Company may choose not to hedge certain foreign exchange exposures for a variety of reasons.

The net exposure to foreign currency risk (based on notional amount) in respect of recognised financial assets, recognised financial liabilities and derivatives is as follows:

To provide a meaningful assessment of the foreign currency risk associated with the Company’s foreign currency derivative positions against off-Balance Sheet exposures and unhedged portion of on-Balance Sheet financial assets and liabilities, the Company uses a multi-currency correlated value-at-risk (“VAR”) model. The VAR model uses a Monte Carlo simulation to generate thousands of random market price paths for foreign currencies against Indian Rupee taking into account the correlations between them. The VAR is the expected loss in value of the exposures due to overnight movement in spot exchange rates, at 95% confidence interval. The VAR model is not intended to represent actual losses but is used as a risk estimation tool. The model assumes normal market conditions and is a historical best fit model. Because the Company uses foreign currency instruments for hedging purposes, the loss in fair value incurred on those instruments are generally offset by increase in the fair value of the underlying exposures for on Balance Sheet exposures. The overnight VAR for the Company at 95% confidence level is Rs. 59.80 crore as at March 31, 2017 and Rs. 27.60 crore as at March 31, 2016.

Actual future gains and losses associated with the Company’s investment portfolio and derivative positions may differ materially from the sensitivity analysis performed as at March 31, 2017 due to the inherent limitations associated with predicting the timing and amount of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and the Company’s actual exposures and position.

(ii) Interest rate risk:

The Company’s exposure to changes in interest rates relates primarily to the Company’s outstanding floating rate debt. While most of the Company’s outstanding debt in local currency is on fixed rate basis and hence not subject to interest rate risk.

A major portion of foreign currency debt is linked to international interest rate benchmarks like LIBOR. The Company also hedges a portion of these risks by way of derivative instruments like interest rate swaps and currency swaps.

A hypothetical 25 basis point shift in respective currency LIBORs on the unhedged loans would result in a corresponding increase/decrease in interest cost for the Company on a yearly basis.

(b) Liquidity risk management:

The Company manages liquidity risk by maintaining sufficient cash and marketable securities and by having access to funding through an adequate amount of committed credit lines. Given the need to fund diverse businesses, the Company maintains flexibility in funding by maintaining availability under committed credit lines to meet obligations when due. Management regularly monitors the position of cash and cash equivalents vis-a-vis projections. Assessment of maturity profiles of financial assets and financial liabilities including debt financing plans and maintenance of Balance Sheet liquidity ratios are considered while reviewing the liquidity position.

The Company’s investment policy and strategy are focused on preservation of capital and supporting the Company’s liquidity requirements. The Company uses a combination of internal and external management to execute its investment strategy and achieve its investment objectives. The Company typically invests in money market funds, large debt funds, government of india securities, equity funds and other highly rated securities under a limits framework which governs the credit exposure to any one issuer as defined in its investment policy. The policy requires investments generally to be investment grade, with the primary objective of minimising the potential risk of principal loss. To provide a meaningful assessment of the price risk associated with the Company’s investment portfolio, the Company performed a sensitivity analysis to determine the impact of change in prices of the securities that would have on the value of the investment portfolio assuming a 0.25% movement in debt funds and debt securities and a 5% movement in the NAV of the equity funds. Based on the investment position a hypothetical 0.25% change in the fair market value of debt securities would result in a value change of /- Rs. 4.08 crore as at March 31, 2017 and /- Rs. 14.83 crore as at March 31, 2016. 5% change in the equity funds NAV would result in a value change of /- Rs. 17.14 crore as at March 31, 2017 and /- Rs. 2.87 crore as at March 31, 2016. The investments in money market funds are for the purpose of liquidity management only and are held only overnight and hence not subject to any material price risk.

(c) Credit Risk Management:

The Company’s customer profile include public sector enterprises, state owned companies and large private corporates. Accordingly, the Company’s customer credit risk is low. The Company’s average project execution cycle is around 24 to 36 months. General payment terms include mobilisation advance, monthly progress payments with a credit period ranging from 45 to 90 days and certain retention money to be released at the end of the project. In some cases retentions are substituted with bank/corporate guarantees. The Company has a detailed review mechanism of overdue customer receivables at various levels within organisation to ensure proper attention and focus for realisation.

(II) Defined benefit plans - Note 1(k)(ii)(B):

(a) The amounts recognised in Balance Sheet are as follows:

(c) The changes in the present value of defined benefit obligation representing reconciliation of opening and closing balances thereof are as follows:

* Basis used to determine interest income on plan assets:

The Trust formed by the Company manages the investments of provident funds and gratuity fund. Interest income on plan assets is determined by multiplying the fair value of the plan assets by the discount rate stated in (g)(i) below both determined at the start of the annual reporting period.

The Company expects to fund Rs. 6.1 8 crore (previous year: Rs. 29.85 crore) towards its gratuity plan and Rs. 73.21 crore (previous year: Rs. 79.93 crore) towards its trust-managed provident fund plan during the year 2017-18.

# Employer’s and employees’ contribution due towards Provident Fund.

(e) The fair value of major categories of plan assets are as follows:

iv) Attrition Rate:

(a) For post-retirement medical benefit plan and Company pension plan, the attrition rate varies from 2% to 8% (previous year: 2% to 8%) for various age groups.

(b) For gratuity plan the attrition rate varies from 1 % to 6% (previous year: 1 % to 6%) for various age groups.

v) The estimates of future salary increases, considered in actuarial valuation, take into account inflation, seniority, promotion and other relevant factors, such as supply and demand in the employment market.

vi) The interest payment obligation of trust-managed provident fund is assumed to be adequately covered by the interest income on long term investments of the fund. Any shortfall in the interest income over the interest obligation is recognised immediately in the statement of Profit and Loss.

vii) The obligation of the Company under the post-retirement medical benefit plan is limited to the overall ceiling limits. At present, healthcare cost, as indicated in the principal actuarial assumption given above, has been assumed to increase at 5.00% p.a.

viii) (A) One percentage point change in actuarial assumptions would have the following effects on the defined benefit obligation of gratuity plan:

(B) One percentage point change in actuarial assumptions would have the following effects on the defined benefit obligation of company pension plan:

(C) One percentage point change in actuarial assumptions would have the following effects on the defined benefit obligation of post-retirement medical benefit plan:

(h) Characteristics of defined benefit plans and associated risks:

1. Gratuity plan:

The Company operates gratuity plan through a trust wherein every employee is entitled to the benefit equivalent to fifteen days last salary drawn for each completed year of service. The same is payable on termination of service or retirement whichever is earlier. The benefit vests after five years of continuous service. The Company’s scheme is more favourable as compared to the obligation under Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. The defined benefit plan for gratuity of the Company is administered by separate gratuity funds that are legally separate from the Company. The trustees nominated by the Company are responsible for the administration of the plan. There are no minimum funding requirements of these plans. The funding of these plans are based on gratuity funds actuarial measurement framework set out in the funding policies of the plan. These actuarial measurements are similar compared to the assumptions set out in (g) supra. A small part of the gratuity plan, which is not material, is unfunded and managed by the Company. Employees do not contribute to any of these plans.

2. Post-retirement medical care plan:

The Post-retirement medical care plan provides for reimbursement of health care costs to certain categories of employees post their retirement. The reimbursement is subject to an overall ceiling sanctioned based on cadre of the employee at the time of retirement. The plan is unfunded. Employees do not contribute to the plan.

3. Company’s pension plan:

In addition to contribution to state-managed pension plan (EPS scheme), the Company operates a post retirement pension scheme, which is discretionary in nature for certain cadres of employees. The quantum of pension depends on the cadre of the employee at the time of retirement. The plan is unfunded. Employees do not contribute to the plan.

4. Trust managed provident fund plan:

The Company manages provident fund plan through a provident fund trust for its employees which is permitted under the Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952. The plan mandates contribution by employer at a fixed percentage of employee’s salary. Employees also contribute to the plan at a fixed percentage of their salary as a minimum contribution and additional sums at their discretion. The plan guarantees interest at the rate notified by Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation. The contribution by employer and employee together with interest are payable at the time of separation from service or retirement whichever is earlier. The benefit under this plan vests immediately on rendering of service.

The interest payment obligation of trust-managed provident fund is assumed to be adequately covered by the interest income on long term investments of the fund. Any shortfall in the interest income over the interest obligation is recognised immediately in the Statement of Profit and Loss as actuarial loss. Any loss/gain arising out of the investment risk and actuarial risk associated with the plan is also recognised as expense or income in the period in which such loss/ gain occurs.

All the above defined benefit plans expose the Company to general Actuarial risks such as Interest rate risk and market (investment) risk.
