VII) Sensitivity Analysis

The sensitivity analysis have been determined based on reasonably possible changes of the respective assumptions occurring at the end of the reporting period, while holding all other assumptions constant. The sensitivity analysis presented above may not be representative of the actual change in the projected 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.

Furthermore, in presenting the sensitivity analysis, the present value of the projected benefit obligation has been calculated using the projected unit credit method at the end of the reporting period, which is the same method as applied in calculating the projected benefit obligation as recognised in the balance sheet. There was no change in the methods and assumptions used in preparing the sensitivity analysis from prior years.

6.1 Fair value measurements

The following table provides the fair value measurement hierarchy of the Company’s assets and liabilities:

* Other financial liabilities includes current maturities of long term borrowings carried at fair value through profit and loss/amortised cost.

The fair value hierarchy is based on inputs to valuation techniques that are used to measure fair value that are either observable or unobservable and consist of the following three level:

Level 1 : Inputs are Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilites.

Level 2 : Inputs are other than the 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).

Level 3 : Inputs are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs). Fair values are determined in whole or in part using a valuation model based on assumption that are neither supported by prices from observable current market transactions in the same instrument nor are they based on available market data.

7 Financial Instruments

(I) Financial risk management objective and policies

The Company’s principal financial liabilities, comprise loans and borrowings, trade and other payables. The main purpose of these financial liabilities is to finance the Company’s operations. The Company’s principal financial assets include investments, loans, trade and other receivables, and cash and cash equivalents that derive directly from its operations. The Company is exposed to market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company’s senior management oversees the management of these risks.

a) Market risk

Market risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Market risk comprises three types of risk: interest rate risk, foreign currency risk and other price risk such as equity price risk. Financial instruments affected by market risk include loans and borrowings, deposits, other financial instruments.

b) Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk can be either fair value interest rate risk or cash flow interest rate risk. Fair value interest rate risk is the risk of changes in fair value of fixed interest bearing investments because of fluctuations in the interest rates. Cash flow interest rate risk is the risk that future cash flows of floating interest is bearing invetsments will vary because of fluctuations in interest rates. The Company’s exposure to the risk of changes in market interest rates primarily linked to the Company’s long-term debt obligations.

Interest rate sensitivity

The sensitivity analysis below has been determined based on the exposure to interest rates at the end of the reporting period. For floating rate liabilities, the analysis is prepared assuming the amount of the liability outstanding at the end of the reporting period was outstanding for the whole year. A 50 basis point increase or decrease is used when reporting interest rate risk internally to key management personnel and represents management’s assessment of the reasonably possible change in interest rates.

c) Foreign Currency risk

The Company enters into transactions in currency other than its functional currency and is therefore exposed to foreign currency risk. The Company analyses currency risk as to which balances outstanding in currency other than the functional currency of that company. The management has taken a position not to hedge this currency risk. The Company undertakes transactions denominated in foreign currencies; consequently, exposures to exchange rate fluctuations arise. Exchange rate exposures are not hedged considering the insignificant impact and period involved on such exposure.

d) Credit risk

Credit risk is the risk of financial loss to the company if a customer or counterparty to a financial instrument fails to meet its contractual obligations, and arises principally from the company’s receivables from customers, deposits and loans given, investments and balances at bank.

The company measures the expected credit loss of trade receivables based on historical trend, industry practices and the business environment in which the entity operates. Expected credit loss is based on actual credit loss experienced and past trends based on the historical data.

e) Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk refers to the risk that the company cannot meet its financial obligations. The company’s principal source of liquidity are cash and cash equivalents and the cash flow that is generated from operations. The company consistently generated strong cash flows from operations which together with the available cash and cash equivalents and current investment provided adequate liquidity in short term as well in the long term.

The table below provides details regarding the contractual maturities of financial liabilities including estimated interest payments.

“Current maturities of borrowings forms part of other financial liabilities. Hence, same is not considered separately in borrowings.
