Report on the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying standalone Ind AS financial statements of Brigade Enterprises Limited (“the Company”), which comprise the Balance Sheet as at March 31, 2018, the Statement of Profit and Loss, including the statement of Other Comprehensive Income, the Cash Flow Statement and the Statement of Changes in Equity for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

Management’s Responsibility For the Standalone Ind AS 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 of these standalone Ind AS financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance including other comprehensive income, cash flows and changes in equity of the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in India, including the Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS) specified under section 133 of the Act, read with the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015, as amended. This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of 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 the design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial control that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the standalone Ind AS financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor’s Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these standalone Ind AS 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 there under. We conducted our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements in accordance with the Standards on Auditing, issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, as 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 disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the standalone Ind AS 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 standalone Ind AS 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 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 standalone Ind AS financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence obtained by us and the audit evidence obtained by the other auditors in terms of their reports referred to in sub-paragraph (i) of the Other Matters paragraph below, is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the standalone Ind AS financial statements.

Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the standalone Ind AS 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, 2018, its profit including other comprehensive income, its cash flows and the changes in equity for the year ended on that date.

Other Matters

i. We did not audit the financial statements and the other financial information as regards Company’s share in losses of 2 limited liability partnership firms amounting to Rs.222 lakhs for the year ended March 31, 2018, which have been audited by other auditors and whose reports have been furnished to us by the management. Our opinion, in so far as it relates to the affairs of such partnership firms, is based solely on the report of other auditors. Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.

ii. We draw attention to Note 47 of the audited standalone Ind AS financial statements, relating to the Scheme of Arrangement between Brigade Enterprises Limited (‘the Company’) and its wholly owned subsidiaries - Brigade Hotel Ventures Limited, Brigade Hospitality Services Limited and Augusta Club Private Limited and their respective shareholders and creditors in terms of the provisions of Sections 230 to 233 of the Companies Act, 2013 to transfer the hotels business, integrated clubs and convention centre business and ‘Augusta Club’ business, to its wholly owned subsidiaries (hereinafter referred to as “the Scheme”). The Scheme was approved by National Company Law Tribunal (‘NCLT’) in March 2018 with an appointed date of October 01, 2016 and consequently, the Company has accounted for the Scheme using the pooling of interests method from the said appointed date. However, the aforesaid accounting from the appointed date is not in accordance with Ind AS 103 specified under Section 133 of the Companies Act 2013, read with the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015 (as amended). The previously published Ind AS financial information of the Company, included in these standalone Ind AS financial statements, have been restated for the reasons more fully described in Note 47 of the audited standalone Ind AS financial statements. Our opinion is not qualified in respect of this matter.

We have audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting of Brigade Enterprises Limited(“the Company”) as of March 31, 2018 in conjunction with our audit of the standalone financial statements of the Company for the year ended on that date.

The Company’s Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining internal financial controls based on the internal control over financial reporting 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. 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 the Company’s 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.

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal financial controls over financial reporting with reference to these standalone financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting (the “Guidance Note”) and the Standards on Auditing as specified under section 143(10) of the Companies Act, 2013, to the extent applicable to an audit of internal financial controls and, both issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India.
