1. GENERAL INFORMATION

Forbes & Company Limited (“the Company”) is one of the oldest companies of the world that is still in existence. The Company traces its origin to the year 1767 when John Forbes of Aberdeenshire, Scotland started his business in India. Over the years, the Management of the Company moved from the Forbes Family to the Campbells to the Tata Group and now finally to the well known Shapoorji Pallonji Group. Its parent and ultimate holding company is Shapoorji Pallonji and Company Private Limited. The Company is mainly engaged in Engineering and Real estate business and is listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange. The address and registered office and principal place of business are disclosed in the Annual Report.

2. CRITICAL ACCOUNTING JUDGEMENTS AND KEY SOURCES OF ESTIMATION UNCERTAINTY

In the application of the accounting policies, which are described in note 2, the directors of the Company are required to make judgements, estimates and assumptions about the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and other factors that are considered to be relevant. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

The estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimate is revised if the revision affects only that period, or in the period of the revision and future periods if the revision affects both current and future periods.

2.1 Critical judgements in applying accounting policies

The following are the critical judgements, apart from those involving estimations (see note 3.2 below), that the directors have made in the process of applying the accounting policies and that have the most significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements.

2.1.1. The Svadeshi Mills Company Limited (Svadeshi) is not an associate of the Company although the Company owns a 23% ownership interest (including indirect) in Svadeshi, as the Assets of Svadeshi continue to be in the hands of the Official Liquidator, High Court, Bombay. The Review Petition had been filed against the Order dated 23rd February, 2016 whereby the Special Leave Petition (SLP) was dismissed. The said Review Petition filed before the Hon’ble Supreme Court was dismissed vide Order dated 26th August, 2016. The records of Svadeshi are in the custody of the Official Liquidator. Hence, the Company does not have significant influence over Svadeshi as Svadeshi is under liquidation.

2.2 Key sources of estimation uncertainty

2.2.1 Real Estate Development

In case of Real estate development, the Company’s revenue recognition and margin recognition policy, which are set out in Note 2(xvii), are critical to how the Company values the work it has carried out in each financial year and corresponding recognition of revenue and expenses. These policies require forecasts to be made of the outcomes of long-term real estate development services, which require assessments and judgements to be made mainly on sale considerations, changes in the plan/outlay of work and changes in costs.

2.2.2 Contingent Liabilities and Provisions

Contingent Liabilities and Provisions are liabilities of uncertain timing or amount and therefore in making a reliable estimate of the quantum and timing of liabilities judgement is applied and re-evaluated at each reporting date.

2.2.3 Useful life and residual value of Property, Plant and Equipment and Investment Properties

As described in Note 2(iv) and 2(vi), the Company reviews the estimated useful life and residual values of property, plant and equipment and investment properties at each reporting date.

2.2.4 Fair value measurement and valuation process

Some of the Company’s assets and liabilities are measured at fair value for financial reporting purposes. The management of the Company determines the appropriate valuation techniques and inputs for fair value measurements. In estimating the fair value of an asset or a liability, the company uses market-observable data to the extent it is available. Where such inputs are not available, the Company engages third party qualified valuers to perform the valuation.

2.2.5 Impairment

Determining whether an asset is impaired requires an estimation of fair value/value in use. Such valuation requires the Company to estimate the future cash flows expected to arise from the cash-generating unit and a suitable discount rate in order to calculate present value. Where the actual future cash flows are less than expected, a material impairment loss may arise.

The carrying amount of investment in Forbes Technosys Limited, a subsidiary, as at 31st March, 2018 Rs.6,913.00 Lakhs (as at 31st March, 2017 Rs.5,729.50 Lakhs) and based on the valuation report there is no impairment.

3. STANDARDS ISSUED BUT NOT EFFECTIVE

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) notified the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Amendment Rules, 2018 (the ‘Rules’) on 28th March, 2018. The rules shall be effective from reporting periods beginning on or after April 1, 2018. Amendments to Ind AS as per these rules are mentioned below:

Ind AS 115 - Revenue from Contracts with Customers

Ind AS 115, Revenue from contracts with customers deals with revenue recognition and establishes principles for reporting useful information to users of financial statements about the nature, amount, timing and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from an entity’s contracts with customers. Revenue is recognised when a customer obtains control of a promised good or service and thus has the ability to direct the use and obtain the benefits from the good or service in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods and services. The standard replaces Ind AS 18 Revenue and Ind AS 11 Construction contracts and related appendices. A new five-step process must be applied before revenue can be recognised:

1 Identify contracts with customers

2 Identify the separate performance obligation

3 Determine the transaction price of the contract

4 Allocate the transaction price to each of the separate performance obligations, and

5 Recognise the revenue as each performance obligation is satisfied.

The management is in process of assessing the impact of above amendment. The new standard is mandatory for financial years commencing on or after 1 April, 2018 and early application is not permitted. The standard permits either a full retrospective or a modified retrospective approach for the adoption.

Appendix B to Ind AS 21 - Foreign currency transactions and advance consideration

The appendix clarifies how to determine the date of transaction for the exchange rate to be used on initial recognition of a related asset, expense or income where an entity pays or receives consideration in advance for foreign currency-denominated contracts.

The management is in process of assessing the impact of above amendment, though it is expected that impact from the amendment would not be significant. The Company intends to adopt the amendments prospectively from 1st April, 2018.

Ind AS 40 - Investment property - Transfers of investment property

The amendments clarify that transfers to, or from, investment property can only be made if there has been a change in use that is supported by evidence.

Ind AS 12 - Income taxes regarding recognition of deferred tax assets on unrealised losses

The amendments clarify the accounting for deferred taxes where an asset is measured at fair value and that fair value is below the asset’s tax base.

The management is in process of assessing the impact of above amendment, though it is expected that impact from the amendment would not be significant. The Company intends to adopt the amendments from 1st April, 2018.

1. Plant and equipment includes assets that are jointly owned of Rs.10.25 Lakhs.

2. Land and building with a carrying amount of Rs.251.96 Lakhs have been mortgaged by way of pari passu charge to secure borrowings of the Company (Refer Note 17).

3. Plant, equipments, furniture and fixtures and data processing equipments with a carrying amount of Rs.2,089.98 Lakhs have been mortgaged / hypothecated to secure borrowings of the Company (Refer Note 17).

Notes:

(i) Investment properties include premises on freehold land where the Company is yet to be registered as the owner of a proportionate share in the land Rs.28.66 Lakhs (Previous year Rs.28.66 Lakhs), Jointly owned Residential Premises Rs.28.39 Lakhs (Previousyear Rs.28.39 Lakhs) and Shares in Cooperative Housing Societies, Association of apartment owners and in a company Rs.0.17 Lakh (Previous year Rs.0.17 Lakh).

4.1 The Company has entered into an agreement for sale of a flat and accordingly the carrying value aggregating Rs.1.98 Lakhs (Previous year ‘ Nil) of the asset has been shown as “Asset classified as held for sale” on the face of Balance Sheet . The fair value of the said asset is Rs.130 Lakhs.

4.2 Fair value measurement of the Company’s investment properties

The fair value of the Company’s investment properties as at 31st March, 2018 and 31st March, 2017 have been arrived at on the basis of a valuation carried out as on the respective dates by V.S.Modi and Yardi Prabhu, independent valuers not related to the Company. V.S. Modi and Yardi Prabhu are registered with the authority which governs the valuers in India, and they have appropriate qualifications and recent experience in the valuation of properties in the relevant locations. The fair value was determined based on the market comparable approach that reflects recent transaction prices for similar properties as well as other lettings of similar properties in the neighbourhood. In estimating the fair value of the properties, the highest and best use of the properties is their current use. Thus, the significant unobservable inputs are recent transaction price, taking into account the differences in location, and individual factors, such as frontage and size, between the comparables and the properties. Details of the Company’s investment properties and information about the fair value hierarchy as at 31st March, 2018 and 31stMarch, 2017 are as follows:

1. During the previous year the Board of Directors of the Company had given their acceptance for a scheme of Capital reduction in Shapoorji Pallonji Forbes Shipping Limited (‘SPFSL’), a subsidiary of the Company where by 1,95,00,000 equity shares of Rs.10 each were to be cancelled out of aggregate investment of 4,00,00,000 equity shares held by the Company. A petition was filed by SPFSL in the High Court of Judicature at Bombay on 2nd September, 2016. The scheme was approved by the Honorable Bombay High Court vide order dated 2nd December, 2016. Accordingly, Company has recognized Rs.1,931.50 Lakhs as loss on capital reduction of investment in equity shares and correspondingly, reversed the existing provisions of Rs.2,380.00 Lakhs. The same has been disclosed as an exceptional item in the Statement of Profit and Loss for the year ended 31st March, 2017 (Refer Note 32B).

2. The Board of Directors of the Company at its meeting held on 12th October, 2016, had approved sale of its entire shareholding (50.001%) in Shapoorji Pallonji Bumi Armada Offshore Limited (fomerly known as Forbes Bumi Armada Offshore Limited), a joint venture with Bumi Armada Berhad to Shapoorji Pallonji Oil and Gas Private Limited (‘SPOGPL’) at a price of Rs.1,250.00 Lakhs. The Company had executed “Share Transfer Agreement” and transferred the entire shareholding to SPOGPL and recognized profit of Rs.750.01 Lakhs during the previous year. The same has been disclosed as an exceptional item in the Statement of Profit and Loss for the year ended 31st March, 2017 (Refer Note 32B).

3. Forbes Container Lines Pte. Ltd., Singapore (‘FCLPL’), a foreign subsidiary of the Company has been ordered to be wound by the High Court of Republic of Singapore on 19th August, 2016. An official liquidator has been appointed by the court. As on 31st March, 2017, Company has made full provision for investments made and loans given to FCLPL. Accordingly, this entity is no longer a related party for the Company and not consolidated in these financial statements.

4. During the year, the terms of the preference shares held in Forbes Technosys Limited have been changed. The existing terms of the preference shares held in Forbes Technosys Limited have been changed to 10% Optionally Redeemable Compulsory Convertible Non Cumulative Preference Shares. The Board has approved the revised term sheet for preference shares issued by Forbes Technosys Limited in the Board Meeting held on 24th May, 2017.

5. Edumetry Inc., USA, a foreign joint venture of the Company has been dissolved vide Certificate of Dissolution dated 28th October, 2015 issued by the State of Delaware. Consequently, the Company does not have any significant influence or control over Edumetry Inc. as on date.

6. The Company has 25% ownership in Shapoorji Pallonji Forbes Shipping Limited (‘SPFSL’) by virtue of joint venture agreement. However, SPFSL is consolidated as a subsidiary due to the Company’s ability to appoint majority of directors on the Board of SPFSL.

For trade receivables from related parties refer Note 40.

The average credit period on sales is 75 days. No interest is charged on trade receivables overdue. There are no customers who represent more than 5% of the total balance of trade receivables.

In determining the recoverability of a trade receivable, the Company considers any change in the credit quality of the trade receivable from the date credit was initially granted up to the end of the reporting period. The concentration of credit risk is limited due to the fact that the customer base is large and unrelated.

Trade receivables of Rs.863.59 Lakhs (Previous year Rs.849.94 Lakhs) were impaired. The individually impaired receivables were mainly due to unexpected difficult economic situations. It was assessed that a portion of these receivables is expected to be recovered.

5. Employee Benefits : Brief description of the Plans:

The Company has various schemes for long term benefits such as Provident Fund, Gratuity, Superannuation, Employees State Insurance Fund (ESIC) and Employees’ Pension Scheme, Leave Encashment, Post Retirement Medical and Non Compete fees. The Company’s defined contribution plans are Superannuation, Employees State Insurance Fund and Employees’ Pension Scheme (under the provisions of the Employees’ Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952). The Company has no further obligation beyond making the contributions to such plans. The Company’s defined benefit plans include Provident Fund, Gratuity, Post Retirement Medical and Non Compete fees.

The Company provides for gratuity for employees in India as per the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. Employees who are in continuous service for a period 5 years are eligible for gratuity. The amount of gratuity payable on retirement/termination is the employees last drawn basic salary per month computed proportionately for 15 days salary multiplied for the number of years of service.

The gratuity plan is a funded plan and the Company had obtained insurance policies with Life Insurance Corporation of India(LIC) and makes a contribution to LIC for amounts notified by LIC. The Company accounts for gratuity benefits payable in future based on an independent external actuarial valuation carried out at the end of the year using the Projected Unit Credit method.

The Company’s Gratuity Plan is administered by an insurer and the Investments are made in various schemes of the trust. The Company funds the plan on a periodical basis.

The eligible employees of the Company are entitled to receive post-employment benefits in respect of provident fund, in which both the employees and the Company make monthly contributions at a specified percentage of the employees’ eligible salary. The contributions are made to the Government Family Pension Fund / provident fund managed by the trust set up by the Company which are charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss as incurred.

A large portion of assets consists of government and corporate bonds, although the Company also invests in equities, cash and mutual funds. The plan asset mix is in compliance with the requirements of the regulations in case of Provident fund.

The Company actively monitors how the duration and the expected yield of the investments are matching the expected cash outflows arising from the employee benefit obligations, with the objective that assets of the gratuity / provident fund obligations match the benefit payments as they fall due.

Under the post-retirement medical, and non-compete fees, eligible whole-time directors and on their demise, their spouses are entitled to medical benefits subject to certain limits and fixed monthly payment as non-compete fee. The Company accounts for these benefits payable in future based on an independent external actuarial valuation carried out at the end of the year using the Projected Unit Credit method.

These plans typically expose the Company to actuarial risks such as: investment risk, interest rate risk, longevity risk and salary risk.

Investment risk

The present value of the defined benefit plan liability is calculated using a discount rate which is determined by reference to market yields at the end of the reporting period on government bonds. Plan investment is a mix of investments in government securities, and other debt instruments.

Interest risk

A decrease in the bond interest rate will increase the plan liability; however, this will be partially offset by an increase in the return on the plan’s investments.

Longevity risk

The present value of the defined benefit plan liability is calculated by reference to the best estimate of the mortality of plan participants both during and after their employment. An increase in the life expectancy of the plan participants will increase the plan’s liability.

Salary risk

The present value of the defined benefit plan liability is calculated by reference to the future salaries of plan participants. As such, an increase in the salary of the plan participants will increase the plan’s liability.

The above sensitivity analyses are based on change in an assumption while holding all other assumptions constant. In practice, this is unlikely to occur, and changes in some of the assumptions may be correlated. When calculating the sensitivity of the defined benefit obligation to significant actuarial assumptions the same method (present value of the defined benefit obligation calculated with the projected unit credit method at the end of the reporting period) has been applied as when calculating the defined benefit liability recognised in the balance sheet.

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

L. Provident Fund

The Company has established ‘Forbes & Company Ltd. Employees Provident Fund’ in respect of all the employees to which both the employee and employer make contribution equal to 12% of the employees’ basic salary respectively. The Company’s contribution to the provident fund for all employees, are charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss. In case of any liability arising due to shortfall between the return from its investments and the administered interest rate, the same is required to be provided for by the Company. In accordance with the recent acturial valuation, there is no deficiency in the interest cost as the present value of expected future earnings of the fund is greater than the expected amount to be credited to the individual members based on the expected guaranteed rate of interest.

M. The liability for Compensated absenses (Non - Funded) as at year end is Rs.316.90 Lakhs (Previous year as at year end is Rs.303.66 Lakhs) (Refer Note 19B).

The Company provides for encashment of leave or leave with pay subject to certain rules. The employees are entitled to accumulate leave subject to certain limits for future encashment / availment. The Company makes provision for compensated absences based on an actuarial valuation carried out at the end of the year using the Projected Unit Credit method.

6. Financial Instruments

6.1 Capital Management

The Company manages its capital to ensure that it will be able to continue as going concern while maximising the return to stakeholders through the optimisation of the debt and equity balance. The capital structure of the Company consists of net debt (borrowings as detailed in Notes 17, 18B and 22 offset by cash and bank balances) and total equity of the Company.

The Company determines the amount of capital required on the basis of annual as well as long term operating plans and other strategic investment plans. The funding requirements are met through non convertible debt securities or other long-term /short-term borrowing s. The Company monitors the capital structure on the basis of total debt to equity ratio and maturity profile of the overall debt portfolio of the Company.

6.2 Financial risk management objectives

The Management monitors and manages the financial risks to the operations of the Company. These risks include market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk.

6.3 Market Risk

The Company’s activities expose it primarily to the financial risks of changes in foreign currency exchange rates (Refer Note 36.6) and interest rates (Refer Note 36.6). The company enters into a variety of derivative financial instruments to manage its exposure to foreign currency risk.

6.4 Credit risk management Trade receivables

Trade receivables are generally unsecured and are derived from revenue earned from customers. On account of adoption of Ind AS 109, the company uses expected credit loss model to assess the impairment loss or gain. The Company uses a provision matrix and forward-looking information and an assessment of the credit risk over the expected life of the financial asset to compute the expected credit loss allowance for trade receivables. Historical experience of collecting receivables of the Company is supported by low level of past default and hence the credit risk is perceived to be low.

Investments in subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures

The Company had invested in various subsidiaries and associates. The approved future business plans and cash flow projections of the subsidiaries and associates are evaluated by the management of the Company on an ongoing basis and based on this evaluation the recoverability of the investments is considered to be good.

Other Financial assets

The credit risk on liquid funds and derivative financial instruments is limited because the counterparties are mutual funds and banks with high credit-ratings assigned by credit-rating agencies.

In addition, the Company is exposed to credit risk in relation to the financial guarantees given to banks on behalf of subsidiaries by the Company. The Company’s maximum exposure in this respect is the maximum amount the Company could have to pay if the guarantee is called on is Rs.18,270.40 Lakhs as at 31st March, 2018 (Previous year as at 31st March, 2017 is Rs.16,920.00 Lakhs). Based on expectations at the end of the reporting period, the Company considers that it is more likely that such an amount will not be payable under the arrangement. However, this estimate is subject to change depending on the probability of the counterparty claiming under the guarantee which is a function of the likelihood that the financial receivables held by the counterparty which are guaranteed suffer credit losses.

6.5 Liquidity Risk

Liquidity Risk refers to insufficiency of funds to meet the financial obligations. Liquidity Risk Management implies maintenance of sufficient cash and marketable securities and the availability of funding through an adequate amount of committed credit lines to meet obligations when due.

The Company manages liquidity risk by banking facilities and by continuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows, and by assessing the maturity profiles of financial assets and liabilities. The below table sets out details of additional undrawn facilities that the Company has at its disposal to further reduce liquidity risk.

The Company has the following undrawn credit lines available as at the end of the reporting period.

The following tables detail the Company’s remaining contractual maturity for its non-derivative financial liabilities with agreed repayment periods. The tables have been drawn up based on the earliest date on which the Company can be required to pay. The tables include both principal and interest cash flows.

6.6 Derivatives Instruments and unhedged Foreign Currency (FC) exposure

The Company is exposed to Currency Risk arising from its trade exposures and capital/Loan receipt/payments denominated, in other than the Functional Currency. The Company has a Foreign Exchange Risk Management policy within which the treasury has to perform and also lays down the checks and controls to ensure the continuing success of the treasury function. The Company has defined strategies for addressing the risks for each category of exposures (e.g. for exports , for imports, for loans, etc.). The centralised treasury function aggregates the foreign exchange exposure and takes prudent measures to hedge the exposure based on prevalent macro-economic conditions.

Of the above, the Company is mainly exposed to USD, GBP and EUR. Hence the following table analyses the Company’s Sensitivity to a 5% increase and a 5% decrease in the exchange rates of these currencies against INR.

d) Valuation Process

The Company engages external valuation consultants to fair value financial instruments measured at FVTPL. The main level 3 inputs used for unlisted equity securities, preference shares and debentures are as follows:

1) The current market borrowing rates of the Company are compared with relevant market matrices as at the reporting dates to arrive at the discounting rates.

e) Fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities that are not measured at fair value (but fair value disclosures are required)

The Company consider that the carrying amounts of financial assets and financial liabilities recognised in Note (a) above approximate their fair values.
