Auditor's Report

1. We have audited the attached Balance Sheet of Apar Industries Limited (the Company) as at March 31, 2008 and the related Profit and Loss Account and the Cash Flow Statement for the year ended on that date, annexed thereto, which we have signed under reference to this report. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Companys management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. 2. We conducted our audit in accordance with the auditing standards generally accepted in India. Those Standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. 3. As required by the Companies (Auditors Report) Order, 2003 as amended by the Companies (Auditors Report) (Amendment) Order, 2004 (together the Order) issued by the Central Government of India in terms of sub-section (4A) of Section 227 of the Companies Act, 1956 of India (the Act), and on the basis of such checks of the books and records of the Company as we considered appropriate and according to the information and explanations given to us, we give in the Annexure a statement on the matters specified in paragraphs 4 and 5 of the said Order. 4. The Company has not provided for a mark-to-market loss on derivative option contracts aggregating Rs 1,127.05 lacs as at March 31, 2008 (Refer Note 8, Schedule 22), which is not in accordance with the Announcement dated March 28, 2008, issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Consequently, the profit for the year and reserves and surplus are overstated by Rs 1,127.05 lacs, and current liabilities are understated by Rs 1,127.05 lacs. We further report that had the observation made by us in above paragraph been considered, the profit for the year would have been Rs 7,420.20 lacs (as against the reported figure of Rs 8,547.25 lacs), the reserves and surplus would have been Rs 23,234.05 lacs (as against the reported figure of Rs 24,361.10 lacs) and the current liabilities would have been Rs 104,321.57 lacs (as against the reported figure of Rs 103,194.52 lacs). 5.
