Report on the Financial Statements

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

Management’s Responsibility for the 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 financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance including other comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, including the Indian Accounting Standards (“Ind AS”) notified under the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2015, as amended by the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2017 under Section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013.

This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding 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 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 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 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 auditors’ 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 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 the 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 financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the financial statements.

Basis of Qualified Opinion

The Company on completion of the compliance of the consent terms agreed to pay off the holders of Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds (FCCBs) their dues of US$ 19.19 million towards principal and redemption premium of US$ 15.00 million and defaulted interest of US$ 4.19 million in 10 installments commencing from 5th October, 2015 to 5th December, 2017.The Company could not pay the balance dues of Rs. 10,079.06 lakhs (including interest of Rs. 3,293.74 lakhs) on 5th December,2017, but subsequent to the Balance Sheet date, both the Company and Bondholders have agreed to settle the dues on certain mutually agreed terms subject to necessary approval from regulatory authorities and their banks. Further, interest of Rs. 3,488.60 lakhs as at 31st March, 2018 though crystallized and accrued on above, is being accounted for on payment basis instead of on accrual basis by the Company. As such, no provision for such interest aggregating Rs.3,488.60 lakhs has been made in the financial statements by the Company. This treatment is not in line with the Indian Accounting Standards and the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 and the relevant rules thereunder. Had the interest been accounted for on accrual basis as stated above, the Total Comprehensive Losses would have been Rs.6,889.11 lakhs for the year as against reported Loss of Rs.3,400.51 lakhs, Other Equity would have been in negative by Rs.12,476.43 lakhs as against the reported negative Other Equity of Rs.8,987.83 lakhs, and Other Current Financial Liabilities would have been Rs. 17,494.36 lakhs as against reported Other Current Financial Liabilities of Rs.14,005.76 lakhs (Refer para 21.2 to the financial statements).

Qualified Opinion

In our opinion, and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the effects of the matter described in Basis of Qualified Opinion Paragraph above, the aforesaid 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 Ind AS, of the state of affairs of the Company as at 31st March, 2018, and its loss(including other comprehensive income), its changes in equity and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to the following matters in the Notes to the financial statements:

Note No. 39.6: Accumulated losses have resulted in erosion of substantial networth of the Company. However, the financial statements have been prepared on going concern basis on the grounds as disclosed in the said note; Note No. 39.7:Non-confirmation/reconciliation of certain balances under trade receivables, advances, trade payables and other parties of the Company.

Our opinion is not modified in respect of the above matters.

Other Matter

The comparative financial information of the Company for the year ended 31st March, 2017 and the transition date opening Balance Sheet as at 1st April, 2016, included in these financial statements, are based on the previously issued statutory financials statements prepared in accordance with the Accounting Standards notified under section 133 of the Companies Act 2013, read together with paragraph 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014, which were audited by previous auditors, on which they expressed the qualified opinion dated 30th May, 2017 and 30th May, 2016 for the years ended 31st March, 2017 and 31st March, 2016 respectively. These previous financial statements have been considered in the financial statements for the current year after adjustment for the differences in the accounting principles adopted by the Company on transition to the Ind AS as detailed in Note No. 39.12 to the financial statements.

ANNEXURE ‘B’ TO THE INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT

(Referred to in paragraph 2(g) under ''Report on Other Legal and Regulatory Requirements’ section of the independent auditors’ report of even date on the financial statements of JCT Limited for the year ended 31st March, 2018))

Report on the Internal Financial Controls 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 of JCT Limited (“the Company”) as of March 31, 2018 in conjunction with our audit of the financial statements of the Company for the year ended on that date.

Management’s Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls

The Board of Directors of the Company 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” (the “Guidance Note”) 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 Act.

Auditor’s Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal financial controls over financial reporting 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 the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and deemed to be prescribed under section 143(10) of the Act 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 over financial reporting 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 over financial reporting and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of internal financial controls over financial reporting included obtaining an understanding of internal financial controls over financial reporting, 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 auditors’ judgement, 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 over financial reporting.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting

A company’s internal financial control over financial reporting 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 over financial reporting 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 Over Financial Reporting

Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financial reporting, 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 over financial reporting 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, to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the Company has, in all material respects, an adequate internal financial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financial controls over financial reporting 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.
