2 Employee benefit plans

a) Defined contribution plans

The Company makes Provident Fund and Employee State Insurance Scheme contributions which are defined contribution plans, for qualifying employees. Under the Schemes, the Company is required to contribute a specified percentage of the payroll costs to fund the benefits. The Company recognised Rs. 84.26 lakhs (Year ended 31 March 2017: Rs. 61.51 lakhs) for Provident Fund contributions, and Rs. 30.24 lakhs (Year ended 31 March 2017: Rs. 20.37 lakhs) for Employee State Insurance Scheme contributions in the Statement of Profit and Loss. The contributions payable to these plans by the Company are at rates specified in the rules of the schemes.

b) Defined benefit plans

The Company offers gratuity benefit scheme to its employees in India as per ‘The Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972’. Under the said Act, employee who has completed five years of service is entitled to gratuity benefit. The level of benefits provided depends on the member’s length of service and salary at retirement age. The following table sets out the status of the gratuity plan as required under Indian Accounting Standard (Ind AS) - 19 - Employee benefits:

(vii) Sensitivity analysis

Description of Risk Exposures

Valuations are performed on certain basic set of pre-determined assumptions which may vary over time. Thus, the Company is exposed to various risks in providing the above benefit which are as follows:

a. Interest Rate Risk:

The plan exposes the Company to the risk of fall in interest rates. A fall in interest rates will result in an increase in the ultimate cost of providing the above benefit and will thus result in an increase in the value of liability (as shown in financial statements).

b. Liquidity Risk:

This is the risk that the Company is not able to meet the short term benefit payouts. This may arise due to non availability of enough cash/cash equivalent to meet the liabilities or holding of illiquid assets not being sold in time.

c. Salary Escalation Risk:

The present value of the above benefit plan is calculated with the assumption of salary increase rate of plan participants in future. Deviation in the rate of increase in salary in future for plan participants from the rate of increase in salary used to determine the present value of obligation will have a bearing on the plan’s liability.

d. Demographic Risk:

The Company has used certain mortality and attrition assumptions in valuation of the liability. The Company is exposed to the risk of actual experience turning out to be worse compared to the assumption.

e. Regulatory Risk:

Gratuity benefit is paid in accordance with the requirements of the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 (as amended from time to time). There is a risk of change in regulations requiring higher gratuity payouts (for example, increase in the maximum liability on gratuity of Rs. 10 lakhs).

f. Asset Liability Mismatching or Market Risk:

The duration of the liability is longer compared to duration of assets exposing the company to market risks for volatilities/fall in interest rate.

g. Investment Risk:

The probability or likelihood of occurrence of losses relative to the expected return on any particular investment.

Significant actuarial assumptions for the determination of the defined benefit obligation are discount rate, expected salary increase and mortality. The sensitivity analysis below have been determined based on reasonably possible changes of the assumptions occurring at the end of the reporting period, while holding all other assumptions constant. The results of sensitivity analysis is given below:

Sensitivity analysis presented above may not be representative of the actual change in the defined benefit obligation as it is unlikely that the change in assumptions would occur in isolation of one another as some of the assumptions may be correlated. There are no changes from the previous period in the methods and assumptions used in preparing the sensitivity analysis.

There is no change in the method of valuation for the prior period.

3 Segment information

The Managing Director of the Company has been identified as the Chief Operating Decision Maker ( CODM) as defined by Ind AS 108, Operating Segments.

The Company’s business comprises the operation of a hotel, the services of which represents one business segment. Further, the Company derives its entire revenue from services rendered in India. Consequently, the disclosure of business and geographic segment- wise information is not applicable to the Company.

4 Capital management

For the purpose of the Company’s capital management, capital includes issued capital, additional paid in capital and all other equity reserves attributable to the equity holders of the parent. The primary objective of the Company’s capital management is to maximise the shareholder value.

In order to achieve this overall objective, the company’s capital management, amongst other things, aims to ensure that it meets financial covenants attached to the interest-bearing loans and borrowings that define capital structure requirements. Breaches in meeting the financial covenants would permit the bank to immediately call loans and borrowings. There have been no breaches in the financial covenants of any interest-bearing loans and borrowing in the current period.

The Company manages its capital structure and makes adjustments in light of changes in economic conditions and the requirements of the financial covenants. To maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may adjust the dividend payment to shareholders, return capital to shareholders or issue new shares. The Company monitors capital using a gearing ratio, which is net debt divided by total capital plus net debt. The Company includes within net debt, interest bearing loans and borrowings, other financial liabilities, less cash.

5 Operating leases

The Company has taken various hotel properties and offices on cancellable and non-cancellable leases, which have tenures ranging from 11 months to 15 years. Some of these leases have periodical escalation in lease rentals and/or a share of annual revenues from such properties, in excess of pre-agreed limits.

The lease expense for cancellable and non-cancellable operating leases recognised during the year ended 31 March 2018 is Rs. 1,156.70 lakhs (31 March 2017: Rs. 1,027.69 lakhs).

The details of lease commitments in terms of minimum lease payments within the non-cancellable period are as follows:

6 Commitments and contingencies

a) Litigations

i) The Company has been named as a defendant in two civil suits on a portion of land taken on lease from the Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (“KSTDC”) for the operation of the Hotel Royal Orchid, Bangalore, which are adjacent to the hotel premises. One of the civil suit has been settled in favour of the Company, against which an appeal before the High Court of Karnataka, is pending and in the other matter the Company has an injunction against the other party. Management believes that these cases are not material and will not adversely affect its operations.

ii) The Company has been named as a defendant in a suit filed in mid 2008 by Kamat Hotels (India) Limited (‘the plaintiff’ or “Kamat Hotels”) with Bombay High Court restraining the alleged use of the trademark of the Company and a relief of a permanent injuction restraining the Company from using the trademark ‘Orchid. The Company had filed an application seeking an interim injuction while the above proceedings are pending. The Bombay High Court vide its interim order dated 05 April 2011, has allowed the Company to continue to operate its current hotels as on that date but has restrained the Company from opening new hotels under the said brand. However, the Division bench of the Bombay High Court vide its order dated 06 May 2011 has partially stayed operation of the said Order and allowed opening of one of Company’s proposed hotels in Vadodara under the ‘Royal Orchid’ brand.

During the year ended 31 March 2014, the Company has obtained two favourable rulings from the Intellectual Property Appellate Board (“IPAB”). Kamat Hotels had preferred to appeal the ruling of IPAB in Madras High Court. The Madras High Court has passed orders cancelling the registration in Class 42 of Trademarks Act and the Company has filed a Special Leave Petition “SLP” with the Honorable Supreme Court in 2015. Reply to SLP was filed by Kamat Hotels in the form of Counter affidavit and the Company has filed a Rejoinder in the form of an affidavit. The matter was partly heard by the Honorable Supreme Court in April and May of 2017 and has advised Kamat Hotels to consider the options for settlement by displaying the disclaimers on the Websites regarding the disassociation between the two brands. On 13 February 2018, the Supreme Court dismissed the SLP filed by the Company and consequently, the Company has filed a Chamber Appeal against the said Order which is pending for listing. However, the management believes that the outcome of SLP affects only the registration of the trademarks in Class 42 and does not in any way affect the use of marks by the Company.

The management believes that the case will be settled in its favour and will not affect its current and future operations.

iii) The Company received tax demand including interest, from the Indian tax authorities for payment of Rs. 449 lakhs (31 March 2017: ‘426.20 lakhs; 01 April 2016: Rs. 449 lakhs) arising on denial of certain expenditure, upon completion of tax assessment for the fiscal years 2009, 2011 and 2012. The Company’s appeal against the said demands were disposed off by the appellate authorities in favour of the Company for fiscal year 2012 and allowed partial benefit in favour of the Company for fiscal years 2009 and 2011. Currently, the matter for these fiscal years are before the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal for hearing.

The Company is contesting the above demands and the management believes that it is more-like-than-not that the advance tax receivables (net of provision) recorded in the financial statements towards the tax demands is recoverable. Considering the facts and nature of disallowances, the Company believes that the final outcome of the disputes should be in favour of the Company and will not have any material adverse effect on the financial position and results of operations.

(b) Guarantees

The Company has given guarantees to financial institutions, banks for loans sanctioned to subsidiaries amounting to Rs. 6,500 lakhs (31 March 2017: Rs. 6,300 lakhs; 01 April 2016: Rs. 16,500 lakhs).

7 Financial risk management

The Company’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks: market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company’s focus is to foresee the unpredictability of financial markets and seek to minimize potential adverse effects on it’s financial performance. The Company’s exposure to credit risk is influenced mainly by the individual characteristic of each customer.

The Company’s risk management activity focuses on actively securing the Company’s short to medium-term cash flows by minimising the exposure to volatile financial markets. Long-term financial investments are managed to generate lasting returns.

The Company does not actively engage in the trading of financial assets for speculative purposes nor does it write options. The most significant financial risks to which the Company is exposed are described below:

(A) Credit risk analysis

Credit risk is the risk that a counterparty fails to discharge an obligation to the Company, resulting in a financial loss. The Company is exposed to this risk for various financial instruments. The Company’s maximum exposure to credit risk is limited to the carrying amount of financial assets, as summarised below:

A1: Trade and other receivables

Trade receivables are typically unsecured and are derived from revenue earned from customers primarily located in India. Credit risk has always been managed by the Company through credit approvals, establishing credit limits and continuously monitoring the creditworthiness of customers to which the Company grants credit terms in the normal course of business. On account of adoption of Ind AS 109, Financial Instruments, the Company uses expected credit loss model to assess the impairment loss or gain. The provision for expected credit loss takes into account available external and internal credit risk factors and Company’s historical experience for customers.

The allowance/reversal for life time expected credit loss on customer balances for the year ended 31 March 2018 and as at 31 March 2017 is given below:

A2: Cash and cash equivalents

The credit risk for cash and cash equivalents, and bank balances other than cash and cash equivalents are considered negligible, since the counterparties are reputable banks with high quality external credit ratings.

Financial assets that are neither past due nor impaired

Cash and cash equivalents, advances recoverable, loans and advances to employees, security deposit and other financial assets are neither past due nor impaired.

Financial assets that are past due but not impaired

Interest accrued on management fees receivable is past due but not impaired.

(B) Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is that the Company might be unable to meet its obligations. The Company manages its liquidity needs by monitoring scheduled debt servicing payments for long-term financial liabilities as well as forecast cash inflows and outflows due in day-to-day business. The data used for analysing these cash flows is consistent with that used in the contractual maturity analysis below. Liquidity needs are monitored in various time bands, usually on a month on month basis. Long-term liquidity needs for a 360-day lookout period are identified monthly. Net cash requirements are compared to available borrowing facilities in order to determine headroom for any shortfalls. This analysis shows that available borrowing facilities are expected to be sufficient over the lookout period.

The Company’s objective is to maintain cash and marketable securities to meet its liquidity requirements for 30-day periods at a minimum. This objective was met for the reporting periods. Funding for long-term liquidity needs is additionally secured by an adequate amount of committed credit facilities and the ability to sell long-term financial assets.

The Company’s non-derivative financial liabilities that have contractual maturities (including interest payments where applicable) are summarised below:

(C) Market risk

The Company is exposed to market risk through its use of financial instruments and specifically to currency risk and interest rate risk, which result from both its operating and investing activities.

(i) Foreign currency risk

The predominant currency of the Company’s revenues and operating cash flows is Indian Rupees (INR). The Company is exposed to foreign exchange risk on account of advances given to its wholly owned subsidiary in foreign currency. The exchange rate between the rupee and foreign currencies has changed substantially in recent years and may fluctuate substantially in the future. Consequently, the results of the Company’s operations are adversely affected as the rupee appreciates/ depreciates against these currencies.

Foreign currency denominated financial assets and liabilities which expose the Company to currency risk are disclosed below. There are no forward exchange contracts entered into by the Company as at 31 March 2018, 31 March 2017 and 01 April 2016.

The year end foreign currency exposures that have not been hedged by derivative instrument or otherwise are given below:


The following table details the Company’s sensitivity to a 1% increase and decrease in the ‘ against the relevant foreign currencies. 1% is the sensitivity rate used when reporting foreign currency risk internally to key management personnel and represents management’s assessment of the reasonably possible change in foreign exchange rates. The sensitivity analysis includes only outstanding foreign currency denominated monetary items and adjusts their translation at the year-end for a 1% change in foreign currency rates, with all other variables held constant. A positive number below indicates an increase in profit or equity where ‘ strengthens 1% against the relevant currency. For a 1% weakening of ‘ against the relevant currency, there would be a comparable impact on profit or equity, and the balances below would be negative.

(ii) Interest rate risk

a) Liabilities

The Company’s policy is to minimise interest rate cash flow risk exposures on bank/financial institution financing. As at 31 March 2018, the Company is exposed to changes in market interest rates through bank borrowings at variable interest rates. The Company’s investments in fixed deposits pay fixed interest rates.

Interest rate risk exposure

Below is the overall exposure of the Company to interest rate risk:

b) Assets

The Company’s fixed deposits are carried at amortised cost and are fixed rate deposits. They are therefore not subject to interest rate risk as defined in Ind AS 107, since neither the carrying amount nor the future cash flows will fluctuate because of a change in market interest rates.

8 Fair value on the grant date

The fair value at grant date is determined using Black Scholes Model which takes into account the exercise price, the term of the option, the share price at grant date and expected price volatility of the underlying share, the expected dividend yield and the risk free interest rate for the term of the option.

The model inputs for options granted during the year ended 31 March 2018 are as follows:

a. Weighted average exercise price Rs. 127.05 (31 March 2017: Rs. 80.71)

b. Grant date: 12 October 2017 (31 March 2017: 30 May 2016 and 04 February 2017)

c. Vesting year: 2018-19 to 2020-21 (31 March 2017: 2017-18 to 2019-20)

d. Share price at grant date: Rs. 127.05 (31 March 2017: Rs. 80.85 at 30 May 2016 and Rs. 80.00 at 04 February 2017)

e. Expected price volatality of Company’s share: 48.50% (31 March 2017: 50.82%)

f. Expected dividend yield: 0.00% (31 March 2017: 0.00%)

g. Risk free interest rate: 7.00% (31 March 2017: 7.00%)

The expected price volatility is based on the historic volatility (based on remaining life of the options).

9 First-time adoption of Ind AS

These are the Company’s first financial statements prepared in accordance with Ind AS. For periods up to and including the year ended 31 March 2017, the Company prepared its financial statements in accordance with accounting standards notified under Section 133 of the Companies Act 2013, read together with paragraph 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014 (‘previous GAAP’).

Accordingly, the Company has prepared the financial statements for the comparative period as at and for the year ended 31 March 2017 that comply with the applicable Ind AS, as described in the summary of significant accounting policies. In preparing these financial statements, the Company’s opening balance sheet was prepared as at 1 April 2016, the Company’s date of transition to Ind AS. This note explains the principal adjustments made by the Company in restating its previous GAAP financial statements, including the balance sheet as at 1 April 2016 and the comparitive financial statements as at and for the year ended 31 March 2017.

A. Ind AS optional exemptions

A1. Deemed cost for property, plant and equipment, investment property and intangible assets

Ind AS 101 permits a first-time adopter to elect, the continuation of carrying value for all of its property, plant and equipment as recognised in the financial statements as at the date of transition to Ind AS, measured as per the previous GAAP and use that as its deemed cost as at the date of transition after making necessary adjustments for de-commissioning liabilities. This exemption can also be used for intangible assets covered by Ind AS 38 “Intangible Assets” Accordingly, the Company has elected to measure all of its property, plant and equipment and intangible assets at their previous GAAP carrying value as at the date of transition.

A2. Deemed cost for investments in subsidiaries

Ind AS 101 First-time Adoption of Indian Accounting Standards, permits a first-time adopter to elect to continue with the carrying value for investments in subsidiaries as at the date of transition to Ind AS, measured as per the previous GAAP and use that as its deemed cost as at the date of transition. Accordingly, the Company has elected to measure its investments in subsidiaries in the standalone financial statements at their previous GAAP carrying value.

A3. Lease

Appendix C to Ind AS 17, Leases, requires an entity to assess whether a contract or arrangement contains a lease. In accordance with Ind AS 17, Leases, this assessment should be carried out at the inception of the contract or arrangement. Ind AS 101, First-time Adoption of Indian Accounting Standards, provides an option to make this assessment on the basis of facts and circumstances existing at the date of transition to Ind AS, except where the effect is expected to be not material. The Company has elected to apply this exemption for such contracts/ arrangements.

B. Ind AS mandatory exemptions B1. Estimates

In accordance with Ind AS, as at the date of transition to Ind AS an entity’s estimates shall be consistent with the estimates made for the same date in accordance with previous GAAP (after adjustments to reflect any difference in accounting policies), unless there is objective evidence that those estimates were in error.

Ind AS estimates as at 1 April 2016 are consistent with the estimates as at the same date made in conformity with previous GAAP except impairment of financial assets based on expected credit loss model in accordance with Ind AS at the date of transition, this was not required under the previous GAAP.

B2. Classification and measurement of financial assets and liabilities

The classification and measurement of financial assets will be made considering whether the conditions as per Ind AS 109 Financial Instruments are met based on facts and circumstances existing at the date of transition.

Financial assets can be measured using effective interest method by assessing its contractual cash flow characteristics only on the basis of facts and circumstances existing at the date of transition and if it is impracticable to assess elements of modified time value of money i.e. the use of effective interest method, fair value of financial asset at the date of transition shall be the new carrying amount of that asset. The measurement exemption applies for financial liabilities as well.

Applying a requirement is impracticable when the entity cannot apply it after making every reasonable effort to do so. It is impracticable to apply the changes retrospectively if:

a) The effects of the retrospective application or retrospective restatement are not determinable; or

b) The retrospective application or restatement requires assumptions about what management’s intent would have been in that period; or

c) The retrospective application or retrospective restatement requires significant estimates of amounts and it is impossible to distinguish objectively information about those estimates that existed at that time.

B3. De-recognition of financial assets and liabilities

Ind AS 101 First-time Adoption of Indian Accounting Standards, requires a first-time adopter to apply the de-recognition provisions of Ind AS 109, Financial Instruments, prospectively for transactions occurring on or after the date of transition to Ind AS. However, Ind AS 101 First-time Adoption of Indian Accounting Standards, allows a first-time adopter to apply the de-recognition requirements in Ind AS 109, Financial Instruments, retrospectively from a date of the entity’s choosing, provided that the information needed to apply Ind AS 109, Financial Instruments, to financial assets and financial liabilities derecognised as a result of past transactions was obtained at the time of initially accounting for those transactions.

The Company has elected to apply the de-recognition provisions of Ind AS 109, Financial Instruments, prospectively from the date of transition to Ind AS.

C. Reconciliations between previous GAAP and Ind AS

Ind AS 101 First-time Adoption of Indian Accounting Standards, requires an entity to reconcile equity, total comprehensive income and cash flows for prior periods. The following tables represent the reconciliations from previous GAAP to Ind AS as at the periods specified below. C1. Reconciliation of other equity

The Company has also prepared a reconciliation of equity as at 31 March 2017 and 1 April 2016 under the previous GAAP with the equity as reported in these financial statements under Ind AS, that reflect the impact of Ind AS on the components of statement of Balance sheet which is presented below:

C3. Effect of Ind AS on Cashflow

There are no significant reconciliation items between cash flows prepared under Indian GAAP and those prepared under Ind AS.

C4. Notes

1. Borrowings

Ind AS 109, ‘Financial Instruments’ requires transaction costs incurred towards origination of borrowings to be deducted from the carrying amount of borrowings on initial recognition. These costs are recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss over the tenure of the borrowing as part of the interest expense by applying the effective interest rate method. Under previous GAAP, these transaction costs were charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss as and when incurred. Accordingly, borrowings as at 01 April 2016 and 31 March 2017 have been reduced with a corresponding adjustment to retained earnings.

2. Security Deposits

Under the previous GAAP, interest free lease security deposits (that are refundable in cash on completion of the lease term) were recorded at their transaction value. Under Ind AS, all financial assets are required to be recognized at fair value. Accordingly, the Company has recognized these security deposits at fair value and subsequently measured them at amortized cost. Difference between the fair value and transaction value of the security deposit has been recognized as prepaid rent which would be amortized over a straight line basis over the period of the deposit.

3. Operating leases

Under the previous GAAP, operating lease payments were recognized as an expense in the Statement of Profit and Loss on a straight-line basis. Under Ind AS, operating lease payments are recognized as an expense in the Statement of Profit and Loss on a straight-line basis over the lease term except where scheduled increase in rent compensates with expected inflationary costs. Accordingly the lease equalization reserve has been written back with a corresponding adjustment to retained earnings.

4. Financial guarantee

Financial guarantee contracts issued by the Company are those contracts that require a payment to be made to reimburse the holder for a loss it incurs because the specified subsidiary fails to make a payment when due in accordance with the terms of a debt instrument. Under the previous GAAP, there was no requirement to account for financial guarantees given by the Company. Under Ind AS, financial guarantee contracts are recognized initially as a liability at fair value, adjusted for transaction costs that are directly attributable to the issuance of the guarantee. Subsequently, the liability is measured at the higher of the amount of loss allowance determined as per impairment requirements of Ind AS 109, ‘Financial Instruments’ and the amount recognized less cumulative amortization.

5. Government grant

Under the previous GAAP, the Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG) benefit received was netted off with the value of property, plant and equipment (PPE). Under Ind AS, the value of PPE has been grossed up and the EPCG benefit is treated as deferred revenue to the extent the export obligations are not met.

6. Employee stock option plan

Under previous GAAP, the intrinsic value of the employee stock option plan was recognised as an expense over the vesting period. Under Ind AS, the compensation cost of employee stock option plan is recognised based on the fair value of the options determined using an appropriate pricing model at the date of grant. Accordingly, the difference between the intrinsic value of the employee stock option plan and the fair value of the option on the date of grant has been adjusted in opening retained earnings and Statement of Profit and Loss for 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017 respectively.

7. Defined benefit obligation

Both under the previous GAAP and Ind AS, the Company recognized costs related to its post-employment defined benefit plan on an actuarial basis. Under previous GAAP, the entire cost, including actuarial gains and losses, are charged to Statement of Profit and Loss. Under Ind AS, remeasurements comprising of actuarial gains and losses are recognized immediately in the balance sheet with a corresponding debit or credit to retained earnings through OCI. Thus the employee benefit cost is reduced by such amount with a corresponding adjustment on defined benefit plans has been recognized in the OCI net of tax.

8. Deferred tax

Deferred taxes have been recognised on the adjustments made on transition to Ind AS.

9. Other comprehensive income

Under Ind AS, all items of income and expense recognised in a period should be included in Statement of Profit and Loss for the period, unless a standard requires or permits otherwise. Items of income and expense that are not recognised in Statement of Profit and Loss but are shown in the Statement of Profit and Loss as ‘other comprehensive income’ includes re-measurements of defined benefit plans. The concept of other comprehensive income did not exist under the previous GAAP.

10. Corporate Social Responsibility Expenditure

The gross amount required to be spent by the Company during the year is Rs. 17.60 lakhs (Previous Year - ‘ Nil). Against this sum, the Company has spent Rs. 21.13 lakhs (Previous Year - ‘ Nil) on projects other than construction/ acquisition of assets. The entire amount has been disbursed/ committed prior to the end of the financial year.

11. Disclosures required by Schedule V of SEBI (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2015 and Section 186 (4) of the Companies Act, 2013

Amount of loans / advances in nature of loans outstanding from subsidiaries as at 31 March 2018, on a standalone basis
