Report on the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements

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

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 and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, including the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015 (Ind AS) specified under Section 133 of the Act, read with relevant rules thereon.

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 design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls 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 thereunder. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing 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 Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the 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 Company’s directors, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our qualified audit opinion on the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements.

Basis of Qualified Opinion

a) Attention is invited to note 18(a) of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements relating to the excess managerial remuneration paid of Rs. 497.17 lacs for the period upto March 2017 for the reasons detailed in the aforesaid note. The Company had once again submitted its representation to the Ministry to reconsider its decision and allow the waiver of recovery of the excess remuneration paid aggregating to Rs. 388.45 lacs for the period upto March 2016. If the Company’s representation is not accepted then the company would be required to recover the excess remuneration from the managerial personnel and to that extent the profit will be higher by an amount of Rs. 388.45 lacs. Pending the same no adjustments have been made to the financial results. Subject to the outcome of the representation made to the MCA, we are unable to ascertain the impact on profits on this account for the quarter and the year ended March 31, 2018. Similarly for the previous period ended March 31, 2017, the remuneration in excess of the limits computed under the provisions of Section 197 read with Schedule V to the Companies Act 2013 is Rs. 108.72 lacs for which the Company has made an application to the MCA for approval of the same. Pending these approvals, no adjustments have been made to the financial results for the remuneration of the said period. This matter was qualified in the auditors’ report dated June 18, 2017 by the previous auditors’ on the financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2017.

Attention is invited to Note no 29 of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements in respect of status of the Tolling Road Project in Andhra Pradesh where termination notice was received from NHAI on 26th August 2016 and consequently, NHAI took over possession of toll plaza. Based on the subsequent negotiation and discussion with NHAI, they agreed to revoke the termination notice vide its letter dated 16th January 2017, subject to completing of financial closure and fulfilling of other commitments specified in the letter within the stipulated timeframe. The Company could not fulfil the said conditions. Ultimately on 8th September 2017, the Company made an application to NHAI for mutual exit from the project. The decision of NHAI in response to the aforesaid letter of mutual exit is pending. In case the mutual exit proposal is accepted then the exposure of the Company is likely to be capped at Rs.7246.13 lacs as the Bank Guarantee would be released as requested by the Company in its letter dated 8th September 2017. In case the proposal is not accepted then the entire exposure of Rs. 15,666.13 lacs of the Company in the SPV needs to be tested for impairment. Accordingly, the decision of NHAI is more likely to have adverse impact on the Statement of Profit and Loss. No effects have been given in the financial statements of the SPV pending the decision of NHAI. The Auditors of the SPV have, in their audit report on the financial statements of the SPV for the year ended on 31st March 2018, carried a paragraph on Material Uncertainty related to Going Concern. The decision of the NHAI is awaited for determining the possible impairment and giving necessary effects. Pending the decision of NHAI we are unable to quantify the impairment that would be required in the matter and consequent impact on the Standalone Financial Statements.

b) Attention is invited to Note no. 30 to the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, where the Company has defaulted in fulfilling its obligation under the one time settlement (OTS) with IFCI Limited. The Company was required to pay the entire outstanding by September 30, 2017. The Company has been unable to discharge the liability and has not been able to get further extension for the payment of the outstanding although it is actively engaged with IFCI Limited for obtaining the extension and/or non-reversal of the benefits of the OTS. In terms of the original arrangement, the benefits received under the one time settlement were to be reversed. Although the management is hopeful of obtaining the extension and / or non-reversal of the benefits of the OTS, pending the acceptance by IFCI Limited we are unable to state whether the Company has to account for the reversal of benefits of Rs. 3,776.69 lacs in its financial statements. The company has however provided interest at the rate of 11.50% p.a. as per the agreement. The interest payable on the outstanding amount before reversal of the aforesaid benefit as on balance sheet date is Rs 158.13 lacs.

Qualified Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the possible effects of the matter described in Basis of Qualified Opinion paragraph , the aforesaid 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 including the Ind AS under section 133, of the financial position of the Company as at March 31, 2018, its financial performance including other comprehensive income, its cash flows and the statement of changes in equity for the year ended on that date.

Material Uncertainty relating to Going Concern.

We invite attention to Note 31 of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, wherein the Company has stated that as of that date the Company’s current liabilities exceeded current assets resulting in continued mismatch despite the sale of some of the SPVs in the previous periods. There is therefore a continuing mismatch including defaults in payment of its financial obligations. The management is taking active steps to tide over the present situations for which based on detailed evaluation of the current situation plans are formulated and active discussions are underway with various stakeholders. These conditions, along with matters arising out of pending conclusions of decisions in respect of some of the SPVS set forth in the Note 32 of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements and the fact of the Auditors’ Report of some of the SPV carrying a separate paragraph on Material Uncertainty related to Going Concern as mentioned in Note 31 of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, indicate the existence of significant uncertainty over the cash flows expected and the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Our report is not qualified on this matter.

Emphasis of Matter

Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to the following matters;

a) We invite attention to Note 32(a) of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, regarding unilateral termination and closure of Concessions in a bridge project, which is subject to pending litigations/arbitrations at various forums, which may impact the carrying values of investments and loans and advances given to the subsidiary. The Company’s exposure towards the said project (funded and non-funded) is Rs.2,856.96 lacs. Pending conclusion on these legal matters, no adjustments have been made in the financial statements.

b) We invite attention to Note 32(b) of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, in relation to intention to exit one of the hydro power projects at Himachal Pradesh and seeking a claim of an amount against the amount spent on the project. The Company’s subsidiary has cited reasons for non-continuance on account of reasons beyond its control. The subsidiary is negotiating with its client for an amicable settlement on beneficial terms and has also invoked arbitration. The Company’s exposure towards the said project includes investment and loans and advances of Rs. 7,119.23 lacs. Pending conclusion between the parties, no adjustments have been made in the financial statements.

c) We invite attention to Note 32(c) of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, in connection with an amount invested (including deposits and advances given) in the subsidiary of Rs. 13,831.00 lacs (funded and non-funded). As mentioned in the said note a draft supplementary agreement has been discussed between the parties under which the project would go for a re-bid and the SPV has a Right Of First Offer. The management is hopeful that it will successfully match the bid and win the concession and continue to operate the facility, which would be operationally viable under the revised terms. The management has during the year acquired further stake from the JV partner and has obtained control over the SPV and holds 74% of the equity of the SPV Company. The auditors of the SPV have included a separate paragraph on Material Uncertainty related to Going Concern. Pending execution of the supplementary agreement and the conclusion of the Rebid, no adjustments have been made in the financial statements.

d) We invite attention to Note 32(d) of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, in respect of a tolling bridge project in Andhra Pradesh where the monthly toll collections are not sufficient to pay the interest and the resultant defaults in the loan repayment resulting in the facility being marked NPA. The SPV had earlier submitted a proposal under the Scheme for Sustainable Structuring of Stressed Assets (S4A) to the Lenders, which was cleared by the Lenders for approval of the Overseeing Committee (OC) set up by the Indian Banking Association (IBA), in consultation with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). The SPV provided its response to the observations of the Lenders and the OC on the S4A proposal and was awaiting the OC/lenders’ approval. In the interim, RBI vide its circular dated 12th February 2018, discontinued with immediate effect all restructuring schemes for stressed assets (including S4A). As per this circular, all schemes, including S4A which have been invoked but not implemented, shall be governed by the new circular. Thus the restructuring proposal proposed by the Company is no longer being pursued by the Lenders. Subsequently the Company has issued a cure period notice to Andhra Pradesh Road Development Corporation (APRDC or the Client) on 26th February 2018 under clause 37.2.1 of the Concession Agreement to cure the breaches of APRDC which includes provision of Revenue shortfall loan along with other mentioned breaches. Pending receipt of the response to the notice for cure period, no adjustments have been made in the financial statements. The auditors of the SPV have included a separate paragraph on Material Uncertainty related to Going Concern on the matter. The Company’s exposure towards the project/SPV is Rs. 95,578.24 lacs (funded and non-funded).

e) We invite attention to Note 32(e) of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, an annuity project of the Company where the SPV has accounted for the asset as a financial asset. The SPV will have cost overrun on account of issue beyond the scope of the SPV and attributable to the Grantor. This will not result in any changes in the Annuity from the grantor. However this amount would be treated separately as receivable from the Grantor based on certification of delay period attributable to the Grantor certified by the Independent Engineer. The SPV expects a sizeable claim on this amount and has obtained legal support for the validity of its claim from an Independent Expert on claim and litigation. The SPV had also separately applied to the lenders for Scheme for 5:25 Flexible Structuring Scheme for which sanction from two banks among consortium members had been received and sanction from rest bankers were expected in near future. However, in view of the RBI circular dated 12th February 2018, all restructuring schemes for stressed assets (including 5/25 Flexible Structuring Scheme) have been discontinued and the application became infructuous. The management contends that in view of the strong case it has on the claim matter as aforesaid there will be no impairment necessary towards the financial asset or towards the investment of the Company. The exposure of the Company in the SPV is Rs. 1,30,254.07 lacs including non-fund exposure. Pending conclusions no adjustments have been made in the financial statements.

f) We invite attention to Note no 32(f) of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, relating to the Hydropower project in Sikkim. As detailed in the note there are various factors affecting the progress of the project. The management, as detailed in the note, is confident that it will be able to pursue the project viably and does not foresee any need for impairment. Considering the assertion of the management no adjustments have been made towards any possible impairment. The exposure of the Company in the SPV is Rs. 9,622.91 lacs.

g) We invite attention to Note 33 of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements, wherein during the year, Western Coalfields Limited (WCF) had encashed Bank Guarantee amounting Rs 1,514.01 lacs given in favour of Aparna Infraenergy India Private Limited (one of the SPV’s sold to BIF India Holding Pte ltd on February 29, 2016). Subsequent to encashment Company has filed an application for converting earlier injunction application to suit for recovery of damages. The management is hopeful of getting favourable decision on the matter and recovery of damages based on legal advice on the matter. Pending the outcome, the Company has shown guarantee encashment amount as receivable from Western Coal Fields and not debited the same to the statement of profit and loss for the year ended March 31, 2018.

To the Independent Auditors’ Report on the Standalone IND AS Financial Statements of Gammon Infrastructure Projects Limited

Report on the Internal Financial Controls with reference to financial statements under Clause (i) of Sub-section 3 of Section 143 of the Companies Act, 2013 (“the Act”)

We have audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting with reference to financial statements of Gammon Infrastructure Projects Limited (“the Company”) as of March 31, 2018 in conjunction with our audit of the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statement of the Company for the year ended on that date.

Management’s Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls

The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining internal financial controls based on the internal control over 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 (‘ICAI’). 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 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.

Auditors’ Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal financial controls with reference to 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, issued by ICAI and deemed to be prescribed under section 143(10) of the Companies Act, 2013, to the extent applicable to an audit of internal financial controls, both applicable to an audit of Internal Financial Controls and, both issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. 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 was established and maintained and if 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 system 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 internal financial controls with reference to Financial Statements, 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 auditor’s judgment, 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 Company’s internal financial controls system with reference to Financial Statements.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls with reference to Financial Statements

A company’s internal financial control with reference to 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 company’s internal financial control with reference to Financial Statements includes 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 authorisations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a 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 over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internal financial control with reference to Financial Statements may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Opinion

In our opinion, the Company has, in all material respects, an adequate internal financial controls system with reference to Financial Statements and such internal financial controls with reference to Financial Statements were operating effectively as at March 31, 2018, 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.
