Auditor's Report

Report on the Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying Standalone Ind AS Financial Statements of LYKA LABS LIMITED (“the Company”) which comprise the Balance Sheet as at 31st March 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 (in which are incorporated the accounts of the Company’s branch at Ankleshwar audited by another auditor after making such changes as were considered necessary for the purpose of incorporation), and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

Management’s Responsibility for the Ind AS Standalone 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 Ind AS Standalone 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) prescribed under Section 133 of the Act.

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 Ind AS Standalone 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 Ind AS Standalone Financial Statements based on our audit. In conducting 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 of the Ind AS financials 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 Ind AS Standalone Financial Statements are free from material misstatement.

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

Basis for Qualified Opinion

1. Interest on Borrowings:

Attention is drawn to Note no. 47 of the Ind AS Standalone Financial Statements regarding reversal of interest on term loan from two banks provided for the period from April 2017 to September 2017 amounting to Rs 469.92 Lakhs and non- provision of interest on term loan from said two banks for the period from October 2017 to March 2018 amounting to Rs 471.64 Lakhs, aggregating to Rs 941.56 Lakhs.

Further the company has reversed Interest expenses for earlier years for the period from February 2016 to March 2017 amounting to Rs 344.35 Lakhs.

Further there is non-provision of penal interest on term loan from two banks and working capital limit from one bank amounting to Rs 80.04 Lakhs.

These non-provisions/reversals of provision for interest is not in compliance with Ind AS 109 Financial Instruments.

Accordingly loss for the year is understated by Rs. 1365.95 Lakhs.

2. Inventories:

Inventories include slow/non-moving raw material and packing materials procured during the earlier years amounting to Rs. 174.06 Lakhs as on 31st March 2018, which are valued at cost (Refer Note no. 44 of Ind AS Standalone Financial Statements). This is not in accordance with Ind AS 2 Inventories, which requires such inventories to be valued at lower of cost or net realizable value. Accordingly, we are unable to quantify the impact of increase in the loss for the year ended 31st March, 2018.

Qualified Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, and based on the consideration of report of the branch auditor provided to us, except for the effects of the matter described in the Basis for Qualified Opinion paragraph, the aforesaid I nd AS Standalone 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 31st March, 2018, its loss, its changes in equity and its cash flows for the year then ended.

Emphasis of Matters

1. Pledged shares of a Director encashed by a Lender

We draw attention to Note No 41 regarding claims from a Director aggregating to Rs. 128.25 Lakhs being the value of equity shares of the Company pledged as security.

2. Scheme of Arrangements

We draw attention to Note No.42 (a) & (b) regarding the status of the schemes of arrangement with Lyka Exports Limited and Lyka Healthcare Limited.

3. Capital Expenditure:

We draw attention to Note No.43 (ii) regarding the review of the portfolio of products under development and applied research.

Our opinion is not qualified in respect of all these matters.

Other Matters

We did not audit the Ind AS Standalone Financial Statements of a Branch included in the Ind AS Standalone Financial Statements of the Company, whose financial statements reflect total assets of Rs. 8575.88 Lakhs as at 31st March, 2018 as well as total revenues of Rs. 3669.48 Lakhs for the year ended on that date, as considered in the Ind AS Standalone Financial Statements. These financial statements and other financial information have been audited by another auditor whose report has been furnished to us by the Management, and our opinion on these Ind AS Standalone Financial Statements, in so far as it relates to the amounts and disclosures included in respect of this branch, is based solely on the report of such auditor.

The audit of Financial Statements for the year ended 31st March, 2017, was carried out and reported by predecessor auditor, vide their modified audit report dated 29th May, 2017, whose report has been furnished to us by the management and which has been relied upon by us for the purpose of our audit of the standalone IndAS Financial Statements.

Annexure - B to the Auditor’s Report

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 LYKA LABS LIMITED (“the Company”) as of 31st March 2018 in conjunction with our audit of the standalone Ind AS financial statements 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 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 (‘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 ICAI 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 ICAI. 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 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 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 expenditure 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 explanation given to us and based on consideration of report of another auditor, as referred to in the Other Matters paragraph, 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 31st March 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 ICAI.

Other Matters

Our aforesaid report under section 143(3)(i) of the Act on the adequacy and operating effectiveness of the internal financial controls over financial reporting is so far as it relates to financial statements of a branch of the Company is based on the corresponding reports of the auditor of such branch.
