Mar 31, 2017

Note 1 : Financial instruments - Fair values and risk management

A. Accounting classification and fair values

The following table shows the carrying amounts and fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities, including their levels in the fair value hierarchy. It does not include fair value information for financial assets and financial liabilities not measured at fair value if the carrying amount is a reasonable approximation of fair value.

The carrying amount of trade receivables, loans, trade payables, capital creditors, cash & cash equivalents and bank balances other than cash and cash equivalents are considered to be the same as their fair values, due to their short term nature.

The carrying amount of security deposits are considered to be reasonable approximation of fair value.

During the reporting period ending March 31, 2016 and March 31, 2015, there were no transfers between levels 1 and 2 fair value measurements

The Company''s policy is to recognize transfers into and transfers out of fair value hierarchy level as at the end of reporting period. Valuation technique used to determine fair value

Specific valuation techniques used to value financial instruments include :

- the fair value of the forward foreign exchange contracts is determined using forward exchange rates at the balance sheet date.

- the fair value of the remaining financial instruments is determined using discounted cash flow analysis.

All of the resulting fair value estimates are included in level 2 where the fair values have been determined based on present values and the discount rates used were adjusted for counterparty or own credit risk.

B. Financial risk management

The Company has exposure to the following risks arising from financial instruments:

- Credit risk;

- Liquidity risk ; and

- Market risk

i. Risk management framework

The Company''s business activities expose it to a variety of financial risks, namely credit risk, liquidity risk and market risks. The Company''s senior management has the overall responsibility for the establishment and oversight of the Company''s risk management framework and is responsible for developing and monitoring the Company''s risk management policies. These policies are established to identify and analyse the risks faced by the Company, to set appropriate risk limits and controls and to monitor risks and adherence to limits. Risk management policies and systems are reviewed regularly to reflect changes in market conditions and the Company''s activities. The Company, through its training and management standards and procedures, aims to maintain a disciplined and constructive control environment in which all employees understand their roles and obligations.

ii 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 and loans and advances.

The carrying amount of following financial assets represents the maximum credit exposure.

Trade receivables and loans and advances

The Company''s exposure to credit risk is influenced mainly by the individual characteristics of each customer and the geography in which it operates. Credit risk is managed 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.

The Company has established a credit policy under which each new customer is analyzed individually for creditworthiness before the Company''s standard payment and delivery terms and conditions are offered. The Company''s sales are backed by letters of credit and commercial general liability insurance policy from Reliance General insurance. Accordingly no provision has been made on the same.

The company individually monitors the sanctioned credit limits as against the outstanding balances. Accordingly, the Company makes specific provisions against such trade receivables wherever required and monitors the same at periodic intervals.

Management believes that the unimpaired amounts which are past due are collectible in full.

Cash and cash equivalents

The Company''s held cash and cash equivalents (Excluding Bank balances other than cash & cash equivalents) of Rs, 273.86 Lakh at March 31, 2017 (March 31, 2016: Rs, 220.99 Lakh, April 1, 2015: Rs, 1.15 Lakh). The cash and cash equivalents are held with bank and financial institution counterparties with good credit rating.

Other than trade and other receivables, the Company has no other financial assets that is past due but not impaired.

iii. Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that 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 to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when they are due, under both normal and stressed conditions, without incurring unacceptable losses or risking damage to the Company''s reputation.

iv. Market risk

Market risk is the risk that changes in market prices - such as foreign exchange rates, interest rates and equity prices - will affect the Company''s income or the value of its holdings of financial instruments. The objective of market risk management is to manage and control market risk exposures within acceptable parameters, while optimizing the return. The Company uses derivatives to manage market risks. Generally, the Company hedge the financial instruments to manage volatility in profit or loss.

Currency risk

The company operates internationally and portion of the business is transacted in USD & EURO currencies and consequently the company is exposed to foreign exchange risk through its sales in overseas market and purchases from overseas suppliers in various foreign currencies. Foreign currency exchange rate exposure is partly balanced by purchasing of goods and services in the respective currencies and through derivative instruments.

The company evaluates exchange rate exposure arising from foreign currency transactions and the company follows established risk management policies, including the use of derivatives like foreign exchange forward contracts to hedge exposure to foreign currency risk.

Sensitivity analysis

A reasonably possible strengthening (weakening) of the Indian Rupee against all other currencies at March 31 would have affected the measurement of financial instruments denominated in a foreign currency and affected equity and profit or loss by the amounts shown below. This analysis assumes that all other variables, in particular interest rates, remain constant and ignores any impact of forecast sales, purchases and borrowings.

The Company''s hedging policy only allows for effective hedge relationships to be established. Hedge effectiveness is determined at the inception of the hedge relationship, and through periodic prospective effectiveness assessments to ensure that an economic relationship exists between the hedged item and hedging instrument. The company enters into hedge relationships where the critical terms of the hedging instrument match exactly with the terms of the hedged item, and so a qualitative assessment of effectiveness is performed.

There were no ineffectiveness recognized in the statement of profit and loss during March 31, 2017 and March 31, 2016.

Note 2: Leases

Operating leases A. Leases as lessee

The Company leased a number of office premises under operating leases. The leases typically run for a period of 3 to 8 years, with an option to renew the lease after that date. Lease payments are renegotiated at the time of renewal to reflect market rentals. For certain operating leases, the Company is restricted from entering into any sub-lease arrangements.

Finance leases

A. Leases as less or

The company assessed one of its arrangements as an embedded lease transaction and determined the same as finance lease. Accordingly, Property, plant and equipment have been derecognized and finance lease receivable have been accounted at present value of minimum lease payments and resultant difference have been charged to retained earnings. Revenue elements identified as fixed charges towards leasing as per the agreement which are covered under minimum lease receivable definition for finance lease accounting is adjusted partly against finance lease receivable to the extent of principal amount and partly recognized as finance income.

Note 3: Capital Management

a) Risk Management

The Company''s policy is to maintain a strong capital base so as to maintain investor, creditor and market confidence and to sustain future development of the business. Management monitors the return on capital as well as the level of dividends to ordinary shareholders.

The Company monitors capital using a ratio of ''adjusted net debt'' to ''adjusted equity''. For this purpose, adjusted net debt is defined as total liabilities, comprising interest-bearing loans and borrowings less cash and cash equivalents. Adjusted equity comprises of all components of equity other than amounts accumulated in the effective portion of cash flow hedges and cost of hedging.

Note 4: Operating Segment

Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the Chief Operating Decision Maker ("CODM") of the Company. The CODM, who is responsible for allocating resources and assessing performance of the operating segments, has been identified as the Managing Director (MD) and Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Company. The Company has identified only one segment i.e. Agrochemicals as reporting segment based on the information reviewed by CODM.

The company while presenting the consolidated financial statements has disclosed the segment information as required under Indian Accounting Standard 108 "Operating Segments".

Note 7 : First time adoption of Ind AS

Transition to Ind AS

These are the company''s first financial statements prepared in accordance with Ind AS.

The accounting policies set out in Note 1 have been applied in preparing the financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2017, the comparative information presented in these financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2016 and in the preparation of an opening Ind AS balance sheet at April 1, 2015 (the company''s date of transition). In preparing its opening Ind AS balance sheet, the company has adjusted the amounts reported previously in financial statements prepared in accordance with the accounting standards notified under Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules, 2006 (as amended) and other relevant provisions of the Act (previous GAAP or Indian GAAP). An explanation of how the transition from previous GAAP to Ind AS has affected the company''s financial position, financial performance and cash flows is set out in the following tables and notes.

A. Exemptions and exceptions availed

Set out below are the applicable Ind AS 101 optional exemptions and mandatory exceptions applied in the transition from previous GAAP to Ind AS.

A.1 Ind AS optional exemptions

A.1.1 Deemed cost

Ind AS 101 permits a first-time adopter to elect to continue with the carrying value for all of its property, plant and equipment as recognized 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 and investment property covered by Ind AS 40 Investment Properties.

Accordingly, the company has elected to measure all of its property, plant and equipment and intangible assets at their previous GAAP carrying value.

A.1.2 Designation of previously recognized financial instruments

Ind AS 101 allows an entity to designate investments in equity instruments (other than equity investments in subsidiaries, associates & joint arrangements) at FVPL on the basis of the facts and circumstances at the date of transition to Ind AS.

The company has elected to apply this exemption for its investment in equity investments.

C. Notes to first-time adoption

1 Revenue in case of export sales on CIF terms:

Under previous GAAP, in case of export sales on CIF terms, the company recognized revenue on receipt of bill of lading. As per Ind AS, Revenue is recognized only when the significant risk and rewards for the goods are passed on to the customer and the company retains neither continuing management involvement to the degree usually associated with ownership nor effective control over goods sold which is usually on delivery of goods to the customer.

Accordingly the company has reversed the sales booked on CIF terms which not yet delivered to the customer as at the reporting date and recognized the corresponding impact in inventory.

8 Sales return provision

Under previous GAAP, the company did not have a policy for creating a provision for sales return. Under Ind AS, the revenue should not be recognized for goods expected to be returned and a liability to be recognized for such expected returns as well as the corresponding adjustment to the cost of sales.

For the period ending March 31, 2016, Revenue is adjusted for the expected value of the returns and cost of sales are adjusted for the value of the corresponding goods to be returned.

9 Linked transaction

Under Ind AS, two or more transactions are considered as a single arrangement when they are linked in such a way that the commercial effect cannot be understood without reference to the series of transactions as a whole. When such a sale and repurchase agreement is entered into, the agreement''s terms needs to be analyzed to ascertain whether, in substance, the seller has transferred the significant risks and rewards of ownership to the buyer and whether revenue should, therefore, be recognized. There is no such similar requirement under the previous GAAP. The company has assessed its revenue arrangement with one of the customer as a linked transaction i.e. in substance a tolling arrangement.

Accordingly as on the transition date, the company derecognized the corresponding sales and purchase of inventory of this arrangement.

10 Embedded Lease/ Arrangement accounted as finance Lease

Under previous GAAP, sub-contracting arrangements were recognized in accordance with nature of expenses since there was no specific guidance. Hence related assets were recognized as fixed assets and production charges were recognized as revenue from operations from Sale of goods. Under Ind AS, the arrangement that do not take the legal form of a lease but which convey rights to use assets in return for a payment or series of payments are assessed under Appendix C of Ind AS17 if it satisfies the criteria of a leasing arrangement. Since the arrangement is assessed as a leasing arrangement it is further assessed for classification as a finance lease or operating lease.

Accordingly, the company, as on the date of transition, has de-recognized the fixed asset in its books of accounts and recognition of the present value of minimum lease payments value as a "Finance lease receivable" which will be further bifurcated into current and noncurrent portion.

11 Prior Period items

Under Previous GAAP changes in accounting policies, correction of errors and omissions will be recorded through the current period income statements. Under Ind AS, changes in accounting policies and correction of errors and omissions are accounted retrospectively by restating the comparative period. Consequent to the above, items related to the prior period are adjusted in the statement of profit and loss and other equity and their respective Balance Sheet heads.

12 Reversal of Proposed dividend

Under the Previous GAAP, dividends proposed by the board of directors after the balance sheet date but before the approval of the financial statements were considered as adjusting events. Accordingly, provision for proposed dividend including dividend distribution tax was recognized as a liability. Under Ind AS, such dividends are recognized when the same is approved by the shareholders in the general meeting. Accordingly, the liability for proposed dividend including dividend distribution tax included under provisions has been reversed with corresponding adjustment in other equity.

13 Deferred Tax

Under Previous GAAP, deferred taxes are recognized for the tax effect of timing differences between accounting profit and taxable profit for the year using the income statement approach. Under Ind AS, deferred taxes are recognized using the balance sheet for future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying value of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases. The Company has recognized a deferred tax asset on all the adjustments made on transition to Ind AS.

14 Excise duty

Under previous GAAP, revenue from sale of products was presented exclusive of excise duty. Under Ind AS, 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. This change has resulted in an increase in total revenue and total expenses for the year ended March 31, 2016.

15 Revenue

Under Previous GAAP, revenue is recognized net of discounts and rebates. Under Ind AS, revenue is recognized at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable, after the deduction of cash discounts and any incentives. Discounts given to customers have been reclassified from ''other expense'' under Previous GAAP and deducted from revenue under Ind AS. This change has resulted in an decrease in total revenue and total expenses for the year ended March 31, 2016.

16 Derivatives

Under previous GAAP, unrealized gain or loss on foreign exchange forward contracts, if any, as each Balance Sheet date is provided for. Under Ind AS, foreign exchange forward contracts are mark-to-market as at each Balance Sheet date and unrealized net gain or loss is recognized. Derivative assets and derivative liabilities are presented on gross basis.

17 Re-measurement of post-employment benefit obligations

Under Ind AS, re-measurements i.e. actuarial gains and losses and the return on plan assets, excluding amounts included in the net interest expense on the net defined benefit liability are recognized in other comprehensive income instead of profit or loss. Under the Previous GAAP, these re-measurements were forming part of the profit or loss for the year.

18 Employee stock option expense

Under the previous GAAP, the cost of equity-settled employee share-based plan were recognized using the intrinsic value method. Under Ind AS, the cost of equity settled share-based plan is recognized based on the fair value of the options as at the grant date. Consequently, the amount recognized in share option outstanding account decreased by RS, 2.07 Lakh. The profit for the year ended March 31, 2016 increased by Rs, 2.07 Lakh. There is no impact on total equity.
