1 Corporate Information

The Company was incorporated on September 20, 1996, and is in the business of selling vacation ownership and providing holiday facilities.

2 Critical accounting judgements and key sources of estimation uncertainty

In the application of the Company’s accounting policies, which are described above, the management is 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 recognized in the period in which the estimate is revised if the revision affects only the period of the revision and future periods if the revision affects both current and future periods.

The estimates and assumptions that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year are discussed below :

a. Share based payments

The entity initially measures the cost of equity settled transactions with employees using the Black Scholes model to determine the fair value of the options granted. Estimating the fair value of the share options granted require determination of the most appropriate valuation model, which is dependent on the terms and conditions of the grant. This estimate also requires determination of the most appropriate inputs to the valuation model including the expected life of the share option, volatility and dividend yield and making assumptions about them. The assumptions and models used for estimating the fair value for the share based payment transactions are disclosed in Note 20.

b. Defined benefit plans (gratuity)

The cost of the defined benefit gratuity plan and the present value of the gratuity obligation are determined using actuarial valuations. An actuarial valuation involves making assumptions that may differ from actual developments in the future. These include the determination of the discount rate, future salary increases and mortality rates. Due to the complexities involved in the valuation and its long term nature, a defined benefit obligation is highly sensitive to changes in these assumptions. All assumptions are reviewed at each reporting date. Further details about the gratuity obligation are disclosed in Note 38.

c. Intangible assets under development

The Company capitalizes intangibles underdevelopment in accordance with the accounting policy. Initial capitalization of costs is based on management’s judgement that technological and economic feasibility is confirmed.

d. Life time Expected credit losses

Life time expected credit loss allowance is computed based on historical credit loss experience and adjusted for forward-looking information on collection .

e. Estimation towards revenue deferred at inception

The quantum of revenue deferred at inception is computed based on past trends of year-wise cancellation of memberships and considering factors impacting future collections.

f. Significant financing component

Given the nature of vacation ownership business, the Company has determined that membership fee does not include a significant financing component. Where the payment is received in installments, the Company charges appropriate interest to the members.

Note No. 4 - Employee Benefits:

(a) Defined contribution plan

The Company’s contribution to Provident Fund and Superannuation Fund aggregating Rs.990.45 Lacs (2017: Rs.836.18 Lacs) has been recognised in the Statement of Profit or Loss under the head Employee Benefits Expense.

(b) Defined Benefit Plans (Gratuity)

The Company has a funded Gratuity Scheme for its employees and gratuity liability has been provided based on the actuarial valuation done at the year end. The Gratuity scheme of the Company is funded with the Life Insurance Corporation of India.

The above sensitivity analyses are based on a 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 methods and types of assumptions used in preparing the sensitivity analyses did not change compared to previous period.

The Company expects to contribute Rs.234.82 Lacs (Previous Year 151.68 lacs) to the gratuity trust during the next financial year of 2018-19.

The expected rate of return on plan assets is based on the average long term rate of return expected on investments of the fund during the estimated term of obligation.

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

The amount recognized as an expense in respect of Compensated absences is Rs.100.54 lacs (Previous Year: Rs.434.50 lacs).

Note No. 5 - Financial Instruments: Capital management

The Company’s key objective in managing its financial structure is to maximize value for shareholders, reduce cost of capital, while at the same time ensuring that the Company has the financial flexibility required to continue its expansion. The Company manages its financial structure majorly through internal accruals and makes any necessary adjustments in light of prevailing economic conditions. In this context, the capital structure of the Company consists only of equity. Equity comprises issued share capital, reserves and retained earnings as set out in the statement of changes in equity.

Financial Risk Management Framework

The Company has a robust business risk management process to identify, evaluate and mitigate risks impacting business of the Company. This framework seeks to create transparency, minimise adverse impact on the business objectives and enhance the Company’s competitive advantage. This also defines the risk management approach across the enterprise at various levels including documentation and reporting. Risk management forms an integral part of the Company’s Business Plan. The Company has adequate internal processes to assess, monitor and manage financial risks. These risks include credit risk, liquidity risk and market risk.

(i) Credit risk management

A significant portion of the Company’s sales of Vacation Ownerships are by way of deferred payment schemes where the customer is obligated to pay the membership fee in Equated Monthly Installments (EMIs) and the ensuing credit risk is managed by the Company in the following manner:

(a) preliminary assessment of customer credit worthiness, ensuring realisation of minimum down payment and adherence to internal KYC norms.

(b) collecting post dated instruments such as cheques, Automated Clearing House (ACH) mandates, standing credit card instructions from the customers at inception to ensure security cover;

From an accounting perspective, revenue is recognised only when it is probable that the economic benefits associated with the transaction will flow to the Company. The Company also assesses lifetime expected credit loss by using appropriate models, as prescribed by Ind AS 109, using past trends of collections and historical credit loss experience. The categorisation of the receivables into its ageing buckets for the purposes of estimating the expected loss allowance has been profiled based on the longest overdue of that member, for example, if a member has one installment overdue for say 12 months, the entire receivable of the member is aggregated into that ageing bucket and the credit loss allowance is determined after taking into account the credits against the member under “Deferred Revenue - entitlement fee” (refer note 24 and note 28(a)).

The allowances for credit loss and for revenue deferred at inception referred to above, carried at the end of every reporting period, are tested for adequacy and appropriately dealt with.

The credit loss allowance carried by the Company is as under:

* With effect from FY 2015-16, the Company, in accordance with Ind AS, is deferring revenue at inception based on trends as explained and accordingly the credit loss allowance reflects a declining trend. The amounts deferred at inception and the credit loss allowance are adjusted from the carrying value of receivables (refer note 7 and 14) in the same proportion, except in cases where the allowance is directly attributable to a particular contract.

(i) Liquidity risk management

The Company manages liquidity risk by maintaining adequate reserves and banking facilities, by continuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows and by matching the maturity profiles of financial assets and liabilities.

Maturities of financial liabilities

The following tables detail the Company’s remaining contractual maturity for its non-derivative financial liabilities (predominantly trade payables, retention payables, etc) with agreed repayment periods. The amount disclosed in the tables have been drawn up based on the undiscounted cash flows of financial liabilities based on the earliest date on which the Company can be required to pay.

The Company has provided financial guarantees to its wholly owned subsidiaries. The amounts included above for financial guarantee contracts are the maximum amounts the Company could be forced to settle under the arrangement for the full guaranteed amount if that amount is claimed by the counterparty to the guarantee. 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.

Financing arrangements

The Company had access to following undrawn borrowing facilities at the end of the reporting period:

(ii) Market risk management

The Company’s market risk comprises solely of its foreign currency exposure which are limited and not material to the size of its operations. Its major exposure is against currencies that have been stable over several years.

Currency Risk

The Company undertakes transactions denominated in foreign currencies; consequently, exposures to exchange rate fluctuations arise. The Company’s exposure to currency risk relates primarily to the Company’s investing activities when transactions are denominated in a different currency from the Company’s functional currency.

The carrying amounts of the Company’s foreign currency denominated monetary assets and monetary liabilities at the end of the reporting period are as follows.

Of the above foreign currency exposures, none of the exposures are hedged by a derivative. These foreign currency exposures are denominated in currencies that are not very volatile. Hence, the Company is not exposed to major currency risks.

Foreign Currency Sensitivity

The Company is exposed to the following currency risks - USD, AED, THB, MYR and EUR - and the following table demonstrates the sensitivity.

Note 1: Fair value determined using NAV.

Note 2: Fair value determined using discounted cash flow method. Reconciliation of Level 3 fair values

* Fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities (that are measured at amortised cost) closely approximate their carrying value.

The Company has incurred CSR expenditure on activities specified in Schedule VII of the Companies Act, 2013.
