3. Key Accounting Estimates & Judgements

The preparation of the Company’s financial statements requires the management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the accompanying disclosures, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities. Uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could result in outcomes that require a material adjustment to the carrying amount of assets or liabilities affected in future periods.

The key assumptions concerning the future and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the reporting date, that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year, are described below:

a. Income taxes

Deferred tax assets are recognised for unused tax losses / MAT carry forward to the extent is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the losses can be utilised. Significant management judgement is required to determine the amount of deferred tax assets that can be recognised, based upon the likely timing and the level of future taxable profits together with future tax planning strategies including amount expected to be paid / recovered for uncertain tax positions (Refer Note 10).

b. Property, Plant and Equipment and Useful Life of PPE and Intangible Assets

Property, Plant and Equipment represent a significant proportion of the asset base of the Company. The charge in respect of periodic depreciation is derived after determining an estimate of an asset’s expected useful life and the expected residual value at the end of its life. The useful lives and residual values of Company’s assets are determined by the management at the time the asset is acquired and reviewed periodically, including at each financial year end. The life based on historical experience with similar assets as well as anticipation of future events, which may impact their life, such as changes in technical or commercial obsolescence arising from changes or improvements in production or from a change in market demand of the product or service output of the asset.

c. Defined Benefit Plans

Post-employment benefits represents obligation that will be settled in future and require assumptions to project benefit obligations. Post-employment benefits accounting is intended to reflect the recognition of future benefits cost over the employee’s approximate service period, based on the terms of plans and the investment and funding decisions made. The accounting requires the Company to make assumptions regarding variables such as discount rate, rate of compensation increase and future mortality rates. Changes in these key assumptions can have a significant impact on the defined benefit obligations, funding requirements and benefit costs incurred. Refer Note 41.

d. Fair value measurement of Financial Instruments

When the fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities recorded in the Balance Sheet cannot be measured based on quoted prices in active markets, their fair value is measured using valuation techniques, including the discounted cash flow model, which involve various judgements and assumptions.

e. Provisions and Contingencies

Legal proceedings covering a range of matters are pending against the Company. Due to the uncertainty inherent in such matters, it is often difficult to predict the final outcomes. The cases and claims against the Company often raise difficult and complex factual and legal issues that are subject to many uncertainties and complexities, including but not limited to the facts and circumstances of each particular case and claim, the jurisdiction and the differences in applicable law, in the normal course of business. The Company consults with legal counsel and certain other experts on matters related to litigations. The Company accrues a liability when it is determined that an adverse outcome is probable and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. In the event an adverse outcome is possible or an estimate is not determinable, the matter is disclosed.

The accounting classification of each category of financial instruments, and their carrying amounts, are set out below:

The management assessed that the fair value of cash and cash equivalents, trade receivables, derivative instruments, trade payables and other current financial assets and liabilities approximate their carrying amounts largely due to the short term maturities of these instruments.

B. Fair value hierarchy:

The Company uses the following hierarchy for determining and/or disclosing the fair value of financial instruments by valuation techniques:

(i) Level 1: quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

(ii) Level 2: inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e., as prices) or indirectly (i.e., derived from prices).

(iii) Level 3: inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

$e below table summarises the categories of financial assets and liabilities as at March 31, 2018, March 31, 2017 and April 1, 2016 measured at fair value:

Fair valuation method and assumptions:

The fair value of the financial assets and liabilities is included at the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale. The following methods and assumptions are used to estimate the fair values.

i ) The fair value of derivative financial instruments is determined based on observable market inputs including currency spot and forward rates, yield curves, currency volatility etc. These derivatives are estimated by using the pricing models, where the inputs to those models are based on readily observable market parameters, contractual terms, period to maturity, maturity parameters and foreign exchange rates. These models do not contain a high level of subjectivity as the valuation techniques used do not require significant judgement, and inputs thereto are readily observable from market rates. The said valuation has been carried out by the counter party with whom the contract has been entered with and management has evaluated the credit and non-performance risks associated with the counterparties and believes them to be insignificant and not requiring any credit adjustments.

ii) The Company has determined the carrying value of the non-current investment as its fair value in the absence of any available observable inputs.

iii) There has been no transfer between Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 during the above periods.

12A Financial Risk Management Objectives and Policies:

The Company’s principal financial liabilities comprises borrowings, trade and other payables and other financial liabilities. The main purpose of these financial liabilities is to finance and support the operations of the Company. The Company’s principal financial assets include trade and other receivables, loans and cash and cash equivalents that derive directly from its operations.

The Company’s business activities are exposed to a variety of risks including liquidity risk, credit risk and market risk. The Company seeks to minimize potential adverse effects of these risks on its financial performance and capital. Financial risk activities are identified, measured and managed in accordance with the Company’s policies and risk objectives which are summarized below and are reviewed by the senior management.

(A) Credit risk

Credit risk refers to risk of financial loss to the Company if customers or counterparties fail to meet their contractual obligations. The Company is exposed to credit risk from its operating activities (mainly trade receivables).

(i) Credit risk management

(a) Trade Receivables

Customer credit risk is managed by the Company through its established policies and procedures which involve setting up credit limits based on credit profiling of individual customers, credit approvals for enhancement of limits and regular monitoring of important developments viz. payment history, change in credit rating, regulatory changes, industry outlook etc. The maximum exposure to credit risk at the reporting date is the carrying value of each class of financial assets disclosed in Note 7. Outstanding receivables are regularly monitored and an impairment analysis is performed at each reporting date on an individual basis for each major customer. On account of adoption of Ind AS 109, the Company uses expected credit loss model to assess the impairment loss or reversal thereof.

(b) Deposits and financial assets (Other than trade receivables):

Credit risk from balances with banks is managed by the Company’s treasury department in accordance with the Company’s policy.

(B) Liquidity Risk

Liquidity risk implies that the Company may not be able to meet its obligations associated with its financial liabilities. The Company manages its liquidity risk on the basis of the business plan that ensures that the funds required for financing the business operations and meeting financial liabilities are available in a timely manner and in the currency required at optimal costs. The Management regularly monitors rolling forecasts of the Company’s liquidity position to ensure it has sufficient cash on an ongoing basis to meet operational fund requirements.

Additionally, the Company has committed fund and non-fund based credit lines from banks which may be drawn anytime based on Company’s fund requirements. The Company endeavours to maintain a cautious liquidity strategy with positive cash balance and undrawn bank lines throughout the year.

The following are the remaining contractual maturities of financial liabilities at the reporting date. The amounts are gross and undiscounted, and include contractual interest payments.

*The borrowings include discounted trade receivable on recourse basis of Rs. 9,052.79 Lakhs as on March 31, 2018 (March 31, 2017: Rs. 9,079.92 lakhs and April 1, 2016: Rs. 4,983.16 Lakhs). Accordingly, the monies received on this account are shown as borrowings as the trade receivable does not meet de-recognition criteria.

(C) Market Risk

Market risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flow of financial instruments may fluctuate because of changes in market conditions. Market risk broadly comprises three types of risks namely foreign currency risk, interest rate risk and price risk (for commodities) . The above risks may affect the Company’s income and expense and profit. The Company’s exposure to and management of these risks are explained below:

(i) Foreign currency risk

The Company operates in international markets and therefore is exposed to foreign currency risk arising from foreign currency transactions. The exposure relates primarily to the Company’s operating activities (when the revenue or expense is denominated in foreign currency), borrowings in foreign currencies. Majority of the Company’s foreign currency transactions are in USD while the rest are in EURO, JPY and GBP. The major imports are only in respect of capital goods.The risk is measured through forecast of highly probable foreign currency cash flows.

The risk of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates on its financial liabilities including trade and other payables etc, which are mainly in US Dollars, are mitigated through the natural hedge alignment, as Company’s export sales are predominantly in US dollars and such economic exposure through trade and other receivables in US dollars provide natural alignment. Hence, a reasonable variation in the Foreign exchange rate would not have much impact on the profit/ equity of the Company.

(b) Foreign currency Rate Sensitivity

A fluctuation in the exchange rates of 1% with other conditions remaining unchanged would have the following effect on Company’s profit or loss before taxes as at March 31, 2018 and March 31, 2017:

(ii) Interest rate risk

The Company is exposed to interest rate risk on short-term and long-term floating rate instruments. The borrowings of the Company are principally denominated in Indian Rupees , Euro and US dollars with a mix of fixed and floating rates of interest. The Company has a policy of selectively using interest rate swaps and other derivative instruments to manage its exposure to interest rate movements. These exposures are reviewed by appropriate levels of management on a regular basis. The majority of the borrowings are at floating rates and its future cash flows will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates.

(a) Interest Rate Risk Exposure

The exposure of the Company’s borrowings to interest rate changes at the end of the reporting period are as follows:

(b) Sensitivity

Profit or loss is sensitive to higher / lower interest expense from borrowings as a result of changes in interest rates.

* Holding all other variable constant

(iii) Commodity Price Risk

Commodity price risk results from changes in market prices for raw materials, mainly steel in the form of rounds and billets which forms the largest portion of Company’s cost of sales.

The principal raw materials for the Company products are alloy and carbon steel which are purchased by the Company from the approved list of suppliers. Most of the input materials are procured from domestic vendors. Raw material procurement is subject to price negotiation. Further, a significant portion of the Company’s volume is sold based on price adjustment mechanism which allows for recovery of the changed raw material cost from its customers.

12B Capital management

For the purposes of the Company’s capital management, capital includes issued capital, free reserves and borrowed capital less reported cash and cash equivalents. The primary objective of the Company’s capital management is to maintain an efficient capital structure to reduce the cost of capital, support the corporate strategy and to maximise shareholder’s value. The Company’s policy is to borrow primarily through banks to maintain sufficient liquidity. The Company also maintains certain undrawn committed credit facilities to provide additional liquidity. These borrowings, together with cash generated from operations are utilised for operations of the Company. The Company monitors capital on the basis of cost of capital.

No changes were made in the objectives policies or processes for managing capital during the years ended March 31, 2018 and March 31, 2017.

Proposed dividends on equity shares are subject to approval at the annual general meeting and hence are not recognised as a liability (including DDT thereon).

* Includes dividend paid on 39,21,568 equity shares issued by way of qualified institutional placement before the dividend record date.

Under the previous GAAP, forward contract cost were accounted for as prescribed under AS 11 “The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates” under which forward premium was amortised over the period of forward contracts and forward contracts were stated at the year-end spot exchange rate and gains / losses on settlement on aforesaid contracts and mark to market loss relating to outstanding contracts as at the balance sheet date in respect of derivative contracts (other than forward exchange contract covered under Accounting Standard 11 on “The Effects of Changes in Foreign Exchange Rates”), were recognized in the statement of profit and loss.

Under Ind AS 109, all derivative financial instrument are to be mark to market and any resultant gain or loss on settlement as well as on outstanding contracts as at the balance sheet date is to be charged or credited to the statement of profit and loss.

Accordingly, the marked to market gain/loss has been recognized on all derivative contracts and unamortized forward premium balance and exchange gain / loss on reinstatement of forward contracts under aforesaid AS 11 has been reversed.

Note 3 Deferred Tax

In the financial statements prepared under Previous GAAP, deferred tax was accounted as per the income statement approach which required creation of deferred tax asset/liability on temporary differences between taxable profit and accounting profit. Under Ind AS, deferred tax is accounted as per the Balance Sheet approach which requires creation of deferred tax asset/liability on temporary differences between the carrying amount of an asset/liability in the Balance Sheet and its corresponding tax base.

The application of Ind AS has resulted in recognition of deferred tax on new temporary differences which were not required to be recognised under Previous GAAP.

MAT entitlement credit being of the nature of deferred tax, on transition to Ind AS, MAT credit entitlement of Rs 3243.53 lakhs and Rs 3774.53 lakhs for April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 respectively has been regrouped under deferred tax assets from Current tax assets (net).

Employees Stock Options

Under Previous GAAP, Employees Stock Options were accounted for as per intrinsic value method. Under Ind AS employees stock options are required to be fair valued. Accordingly the same has been fair valued as on the opening balance sheet date and as at March 31, 2017. Further compensation cost has been recognized through Other Equity as on transition date, and through statement of profit and loss during FY 2016-17.

Note 5

Proposed Dividend

Under Indian GAAP, as at the date of transition, proposed final dividends including Dividend Distribution Taxes (DDT) are recognised as a liability in the period to which they relate, irrespective of when they are approved. Under Ind AS, such dividend is recognised as a liability when approved by shareholders.

Note 6

Government Grant

Note 8

Borrowings and related transaction costs

Ind AS 109 requires transaction costs incurred towards origination of borrowings to be deducted from the carrying amount of borrowings on initial recognition. These costs are recognised in the statement of profit and loss over the tenure of the borrowing as part of the other borrowing cost by applying the effective interest rate method.

Under previous GAAP, these transaction costs were either charged to Statement of Profit and Loss or capitalised as and when incurred.

Note 9 Excise Duty

Under previous GAAP, revenue from sale of goods was presented net of excise duty whereas under Ind AS the revenue from sale of goods is presented inclusive of excise duty. The excise duty is presented on the face of the Statement of Profit and Loss as part of expenses.

Note 10 Revenue

Under previous GAAP, revenue is measured at transaction value. Under Ind AS revenue is recognized at fair value of consideration received or receivable which require adjustment of all discounts and rebates as netted from revenue. Accordingly, discounts earlier grouped under other expenses is netted off with revenue.

Note 11

Defined Benefit Obligations

Under Ind AS, Remeasurements i.e. actuarial gains and losses and the return on plan assets, excluding amounts included in the net interest expense on the net defined liability, are recognized in other comprehensive income instead of profit or loss as in previous GAAP.

Note 12

Bills of exchange discounted

Under IGAAP, trade receivables derecognised by way of bills of exchange were shown as contingent liability, wherever the facility availed was with recourse to the bank. Under Ind AS, the trade receivables have been restated with corresponding recognition of short term borrowings of Rs.9,052.79 lakhs (March 31, 2017: Rs.9,079.92 lakhs and April 1, 2016: Rs.4,983.16 lakhs).

16. Standards issued but not effective

The amendments to standards that are issued, but not yet effective, up to the date of issuance of the Company’s financial statements are disclosed below. The Company intends to adopt these standards, if applicable, when they become effective. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has issued the Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Amendment Rules, 2017 and Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Amendment Rules, 2018 amending the following standards:

Ind AS 115 Revenue from Contracts with Customers

The Company is currently evaluating the impact of implementation of Ind AS 115 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” which is applicable to it w.e.f April 01, 2018. However, based on the evaluation done so far and based on the arrangement that the Company has with its customers for sale of its products, the implementation of Ind AS 115 will not have any significant recognition and measurement impact. However, there will be additional presentation and disclosure requirement which will be provided in the next year’s financial statements.

Amendments to Ind AS 12 Recognition of Deferred Tax Assets for Unrealised Losses

The amendments clarify that an entity needs to consider whether tax law restricts the sources of taxable profits against which it may make deductions on the reversal of that deductible temporary difference. Furthermore, the amendments provide guidance on how an entity should determine future taxable profits and explain the circumstances in which taxable profit may include the recovery of some assets for more than their carrying amount.

These amendments are effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 April 2018. These amendments are not expected to have any impact on the Company as the Company has no deductible temporary differences or assets that are in the scope of the amendments.

Appendix B to Ind AS 21 Foreign Currency Transactions and Advance Consideration

The Appendix clarifies that, in determining the spot exchange rate to use on initial recognition of the related asset, expense or income (or part of it) on the derecognition of a non-monetary asset or non-monetary liability relating to advance consideration, the date of the transaction is the date on which an entity initially recognises the non-monetary asset or non-monetary liability arising from the advance consideration. If there are multiple payments or receipts in advance, then the entity must determine the transaction date for each payment or receipt of advance consideration.

The Appendix is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 April 2018. However, since the Company’s current practice is in line with the Interpretation, the Company does not expect any effect on its financial statements.

Amendments to Ind AS 112 Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities, Ind AS 40 Investment Property and Ind AS 28 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures are not applicable to the Company.”
