Results of Operations:
As already communicated to the shareholders under the previous annual
report that the Company has received communication from the parent
company that they will not be able to supply the raw material on credit
terms as before and the Company does not have its own financial
strength, so the Board of Directors'' in its meeting held on July 08,
2013 decided to close the operation of the unit in order to stop the
accumulation of cost and liabilities until an appropriate decision is
taken. Presently, the Company ceases to be Sick Industrial Company vide

turned positive as on 31st December 2014. The management is in the
process of evaluating available options to rehabilitate the Company.
However, the other income of Rs. 130.43 million is mainly because of

Extension of Annual General Meeting:
Due to various factors, the Company had stopped production in July
2013. The management & promoters are presently evaluating various
options in connection with reviving / rehabilitating the Company. The
Company had retrenched all of its 97 workers in 2013-14. Out of the

agreement) with 39 workers. Under the above Circumstances, the Board

Auditors'' Qualifications and Management''s Reply:
1. ''Basis for Qualified Opinion'' of the Audit Report:
The Company has accumulated losses of Rs. 161,161,535 as at 30 June
2015 which have exceeded the paid up capital and reserves of Rs.
160,522,805 of the Company at that date. The Company had been declared
sick on 9 February 2010 and had made a reference to the Board for
Industrial & Financial Reconstruction (BIFR) in terms of Section 15(1)
of the Sick Industrial Companies (Special Provisions) Act, 1985.
During the year, company ceases to be a sick industrial Company vide
order dated 08 June 2015 within the meaning of Section 3(1)(o) of Sick
Industrial Companies Act (SICA) as its net worth has turned positive as
on 31st December 2014. However as on 30 June 2015, the net worth has
turned negative amounting to Rs. 639,730.
Considering the financial position of the Company as at 30 June 2015 and
the subsequent financial stress caused by the Alumeco Group withdrawing
extended credit terms for supply of raw material, there exists
significant uncertainty as to whether the Company will be able to
continue as a going concern. The Management is in the process of
evaluating available options to rehabilitate the Company. The financial
results for the year ended 30 June 2015 have been prepared on a going
concern basis and do not include any adjustments relating to the
recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts, or, to
amounts or classification of liabilities that may be necessary if the
Company is unable to continue as a going concern.
The accumulated loss at the year end is Rs. 161.16 million which is
more than 100% of the net worth of the Company. However, during the
year, company ceases to be a sick industrial Company vide order dated
08 June 2015 within the meaning of Section 3(1)(o) of Sick Industrial
Companies Act (SICA) as its net worth has turned positive as on 31st
The Alumeco Group, Denmark took a commercial decision to stop extending
the facility of supplying raw material on credit to the Company, as was
being done in the past. This decision coupled with the accumulated
losses in the Company and the prevailing adverse business conditions
(on account of liquidity crunch, labour problems, power cuts, poor
order book position due to bad economic scenario, credit crunch in the
market, etc.), has further strained the financial position of the
Company. However, the Board of Directors and the Management of the
Company are actively pursuing various available options to rehabilitate
the Company and currently believe that the Company would be in a
position to continue as a going concern. Hence, these financial
statements have been prepared under the going concern assumption.
2. Matter of Emphasis
1. Note 2.25(h) which describes the uncertainty related to the outcome
of the lawsuit filed against the Company by the workers regarding
settlement of compensation amounting to Rs.10,816,903.
Till the end of the relevant financial year the Company has settled 39
workers out of 97 workers with mutual agreement on individual basis and
the approximate liability regarding settlement compensation for
remaining 58 workers is estimated to be Rs. 10.82 million on the basis
of earlier settlements. As the amount is not certain at this stage,
provision is not made and shown as contingent liability.
2. Note 2.27 (C) with regards to extraordinary item on account of write
back of Rs. 96,456,372 (excluding exchange effect) payable to creditors
with mutual consent for which direct confirmation is not received.
During the year, Alumeco Handler services GmbH has waived off the
payable amount of Rs. 96.46millions with mutual consent, for which the
auditors had received the direct confirmation on later date.
3. Note 2.29 regarding provision of gratuity amounting Rs. 4,945,334
and compensated absences amounting to Rs. 988,708 is provided on actual
basis and no actuarial valuation has been made as per the requirement
of Accounting Standard -15 - Employee Benefits.
Since Company has already made application for closure, provision for
gratuity and compensated absences has been made on actual basis. As at
the end of the year, there is no employee on whom further gratuity
liability is to be accrued. Hence no actuarial valuation is being done.
4. As per Sec. 138 of Companies Act, 2013 internal audit has not been
carried out by the Company as there were no operations in the company
during the year.
Since the production is closed and there is no other operations in the
company. Therefore, the internal audit has not been carried out during
As the production of the company is closed since July, 2013, the
Company has not appointed the Cost Auditor for year 2014- 2015.
