6. Financial Risk Management Objectives and Policies:

The Company’s activities are exposed to a variety of Financial Risks from its Operations. The key financial risks include Market Risk,

Credit Risk and Liquidity Risk.

(i) 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 mainly three types of Risk: Foreign currency Risk, Interest rate Risk and Other Price Risk such as Equity Price Risk and Commodity Price risk.

(a) Foreign Currency Risk:

Foreign Currency Risk has underlying risk that the fair value or future cash flows of an exposure will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates. The Company is exposed to foreign exchange risk arising from foreign currency transactions of imports, exports and borrowing primarily with respect to USD and Euro. The Company’s exports are denominated generally in USD, providing a natural hedge to some extent against foreign currency payments on account of imports of raw materials and/or the payment of borrowings. The foreign currency transaction risk are managed through selective hedging programmes by way of forward contracts currency swaps and interest rate swaps including for underlying transactions having firm commitments or highly probable forecast of crystallization.

(c) Commodity Price Risk:

The Company is affected by the price volatility of certain commodities. Its operating activities require the purchase of raw materials and bought out components for manufacturing of Cables and Turnkey Contract & Services respectively. It requires a continuous supply of certain raw materials & brought out components such as optical fibre, copper, aluminum, plastic and polymers, telecom ducts, power cables, conductors, transformers, fabricated steel, poles etc. To mitigate the commodity price risk, the Company has an approved supplier base to get the best competitive prices for the commodities and also to manage the cost without any compromise on quality.

(d) Equity Price Risk:

The Company’s exposure to equity securities price risk arises from Quoted Investments held by the Company and classified in the balance sheet at fair value through OCI. Having regard to the nature of securities, intrinsic worth, intent and long term nature of securities, fluctuation in their prices are considered acceptable and do not warrant any management estimation.

(ii) Credit Risk:

Credit risk is the risk that counterparty might not honour its obligations under a financial instrument or customer contract leading to financial loss. The Company is exposed to credit risk from its operating activities (primarily Trade Receivables).

Customer credit risk is managed by each business unit and is subject to the Company’s established policy, procedures and control relating to customer credit risk management. The Company assesses the credit quality of the counterparties taking into account their financial position, past experience and other factors. The Company’s Turnkey Contract business customers profile include Government owned utilities/ entities/ and both public and private telecom sector operators and service provides, and accordingly its credit risk is low. Credit risk is reduced to a significant extent if the projects(s) are funded by the Central and State Government and also by receiving pre-payments (including mobilization advances) and achieving project completion milestone within the contracted delivery schedule. Outstanding customer receivables are regularly monitored and assessed. The Company follows the simplified approach for recognition of impairment loss. Impairment allowance for trade receivables if any, is provided on the basis of respective credit risk of individual customer as on the reporting date.

Deposits with Bank:

The deposits with banks constitute mostly the investment made by the Company against bank guarantees and are generally not exposed to credit risk.

(iii) Liquidity Risk:

Liquidity risk is the risk where the Company will encounter difficulty in meeting the obligations associated with its financial liabilities that are settled by delivering cash or another financial asset. The Company’s approach is to ensure as far as possible that it will have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when due.

7. Capital Management:

The Company’s policy is to maintain an adequate capital base so as to maintain creditors and market confidence and to sustain future development. Capital includes issued capital, securities premium and all other equity reserves attributable to equity holders.

The Company monitors capital using a gearing ratio which is net debt divided by total capital plus net debt. Net Debt is calculated as borrowings less cash and cash equivalents.

(a) Effect of Ind AS adoption on the Balance Sheet as at 31st March, 2017 and 1st April, 2016:

Reference Notes to point no. (a), (b), (c) & (d) of Note No. 52 above :

(i) Property Plant and Equipment: The Company has elected the option to continue with the carrying value for all its Property, Plant & Equipment as recognized in the financial statements as at the date of transition to Ind AS measured as per previous GAAP and used it as the deemed cost on the date of transition.

Under Ind AS such Grant have been treated as a deferred income under liability and recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss on a systematic basis over the useful life of such assets.

(iv) Borrowings: Under previous GAAP, Borrowings were measured at transaction value, with transaction cost recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss immediately, Under Ind AS borrowings have been recognized at amortized cost using Effective Interest Rate (EIR) method.

(v) Re-measurement of Defined Benefit Plan: Under Previous GAAP, re-measurement of retirement defined benefit plans i.e. actuarial gains/ (losses) arising due to experience, adjustments and change in assumptions were recognized in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

The difference between fair value and previous GAAP carrying value has been recognized as advance rent under Current Asset. The same has been charged as rent expense to the Statement of Profit and Loss over the period of lease. Interest Income has been recognized yearly on interest free security deposit.

(viii) Deferred Taxes: Under Previous GAAP, deferred taxes were accounted for based on the income statement approach which requires creation of deferred tax asset/ liability on temporary differences between the taxable income and accounting income. Under Ind AS, deferred taxes are accounted for based on 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. Application of Ind AS has also resulted in recognition of deferred taxes on new temporary differences arising due to adjustments made on transition to Ind AS.

(ix) Dividend: Under previous GAAP (up to 31st March 2016), proposed dividend was recognized as liability in the period to which it was related (if subsequently approved by Board of Directors). Under Ind AS, proposed dividend is recognized as liability in the period in which it is approved by shareholders.
