2. DIVIDEND

The Company and the Group incurred a loss for the year and have accumulated negative reserves as at the year end. The Directors therefore recommend that no dividend be paid in respect of the Financial Year 2014-2015.

3. BUSINESS UPDATE AND OUTLOOK

After the buyer for RVC Towers that was reported last year, failed to complete the transaction the company has been unable to secure an alternative buyer even at a reduced price. Demand for office space in Chennai continues to be weak due mainly to over-supply; whilst Rupee interest rates have continued to be held high both by the RBI and by the RVC mortgagee, who is concerned about the company's continuing ability to settle the interest and capital payments as they fall due, in the absence of sufficient income from rentals. As a result the company's only remaining business, that of letting out the floors of RVC Towers that it owns, has been loss making throughout the year and is totally dependent on continuing financial support from its major shareholder.

The company continues to look for tenants to fill the vacant floors of RVC Towers, and for a buyer of the building. Until it finds a buyer for RVC the shares of the company are not an attractive option for a partner seeking a reverse takeover due to the high loan interest and low rentals on RVC. At the date of this report we have a number of prospective buyers for the building with whom we are in preliminary talks.

7. AUDIT RELATED MATTERS

7.1. Audit Committee

In terms of clause 49 of the listing agreement and the provision of Section 177(8) read with Rule 6 of the Companies (Meeting of Board and its Powers) Rules 2014 the company has duly constituted a qualified and independent Audit Committee.

During the period under review, the suggestions put forth by the Audit Committee were duly considered and accepted by the Board of Directors. There were no instances of non- acceptance of such recommendations.

7.2. Statutory Auditors

At the Annual General Meeting of the Company held on 27th November 2014, M/s.Tomy & Francis, Chartered Accountants (Firm Registration Number 010922S) were reappointed as the Statutory Auditors of the Company to hold office until the conclusion of this Annual General Meeting. Since the Company has time up to the year 2017 to comply with the provisions relating to rotation of auditors as stipulated in Section 139 (2) of the Companies Act, 2013 read with the Companies (Audit and Auditors) Rules, 2014, it has decided to re-appoint the auditors for the financial year 2015-2016.

Accordingly, the appointment of M/s.Tomy and Francis, Chartered Accountants, as statutory auditors of the Company, is placed for approval by the shareholders. In this regard, the Company has received a certificate from the auditors to the effect that if they are reappointed, it would be in accordance with the provisions of Section 141 of the Companies Act, 2013. The Audit committee and the Board of Directors recommend the appointment of M/s. Tomy and Francis Chartered Accountant as Auditors to hold office up to the conclusion of next Annual General Meeting.

7.3. Qualifications in Auditors Report

With reference to auditor's remark in audit report, we state as follows:-

1. Note 26 and 27 in the stand alone financial statements which indicate that the Standalone Company has accumulated losses and its net worth has been fully eroded, the Standalone Company has incurred a net loss during the current and previous year(s) and, the Stand alone Company's current liabilities exceeded its current assets as at the balance sheet date. These conditions, along with other matters set forth in Note 26, indicate the existence of a material uncertainty that may cast significant doubt about the Stand alone Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

On sale of RVC Towers we are unlikely to realize any more than is required to settle amounts due to Canara Bank, and so after a sale the company would be left with no rental incomes and therefore no income at all to meet its ongoing staff and administration costs. Unless we can find a buyer for the Company who can attribute some value to the company's listed status and who would be willing to make an offer for the entire share capital, a sale of RVC Towers would most likely trigger the winding up of the Company.

2. Note No. 29 to the standalone financial statements and Notes to Fixed Asset schedule regarding Change in Depreciation Policy of Fixed Assets and resultant loss amounting to Rs. 58,64,486/- including prior period Depreciation of Rs. 50,21,028.00/-.

As per estimation of management no impairment of Fixed Assets was considered during the year 2014-15, since impairment losses on Fixed Assets were provided and recognized in the previous years. However, depreciation rates have been changed to amortise the depreciable value over the useful life as set out in Schedule II of Companies Act, 2013, equally, as the holding company is expected to use the same for letting out, which will be in tune with Schedule II of Companies Act 2013. Depreciation is charged on building based on the estimated remaining life period of 25 years from the date of valuation on 17-01-2013 by the approved valuer. Useful life of various assets is as given below estimating a residual value of 1% on original cost at the end of useful life.

Item Useful life

Furniture & Fitiings 10 years

Office Equipment 5 Years

Total additional depreciation charged to the profit and loss Account is Rs. 58,64,486/-.

3. Note No. 30 to the stand alone financial statement regarding write back of Account Payables to Aspire Communications P Ltd and Aspire Peripherals P Ltd, two wholly owned subsidiaries of the Standalone Company amounting to Rs. 253,45,879.00/-.

Since the company has fully stopped its principle business being Software Development and its sales and service and company have no trade receivables during the year.

Payables to Aspire Communications P Ltd and Aspire Peripherals P Ltd, wholly owned subsidiary of the company amounting to Rs. 253,45,879/- has been written back to Profit and loss account as Exceptional item as these companies have stopped all it activities.

4. Note no. 31 to the standalone financial statement regarding unsecured loans from Associate companies amounting to Rs. 246,936,135.00/-.

Auditors notes are self explanatory.

5. Company's Overseas subsidiary CSWL Inc and Indian subsidiary Aspire Communications P Ltd and it subsidiary Aspire peripherals P Ltd have stopped their operations fully. CSWL Inc has initiated Liquidation proceedings.

DIVIDEND

The Company and the Group incurred a loss for the year and have accumulated negative reserves as at the year end. The Directors therefore recommend that no dividend be paid in respect of the Financial Year 2013-2014.

BUSINESS UPDATE AND OUTLOOK

The restructuring plan started in 2012 is close to completion at the date of this report. The businesses of the company that were all loss making, have been sold off for cash; and all of the many disputes and known claims against the company have been settled. The Company''s remaining subsidiaries have been closed and liquidated, or are close to being liquidated. The cash realised has been used mainly to settle claims and to maintain the interest and capital repayments on the loan secured on RVC Towers, the company''s headquarters building in Chennai, which has proved extremely difficult to sell. Had the Company defaulted on that loan it would almost certainly have caused a rapid and total collapse of the company and destroyed any chance of recovery. There is now a glimmer of hope on the horizon, as at the date of this report the Board has secured a buyer for RVC Towers, at a reasonable market price, although there will be limited surplus funds remaining from the sale price after settlement of the outstanding mortgage in favour of Canara bank. The sale of RVC Towers will at last allow the Board to move forward with its intentions to structure a reverse takeover of Calsoft, which we hope will form a platform to build some future value.

DIVIDEND

Due to the loss incurred during the year, the Board of Directors of your company does not recommend any dividend for the Financial Year 2011-12.

BUSINESS UPDATE AND OUTLOOK

In 2009 your Board of Directors reviewed the existing business assets of the Group and formed the view that the assets would be more valuable sold separately than if kept together as a business. They therefore sought buyers for the main businesses and tried to reposition the company as an incubator fund for start-up ventures. The main revenue generating businesses; American Healthnet and Calsoft Labs (OPD Division) were all sold under arrangements whereby much of the expected consideration was dependent upon the realization (whilst under the buyers control) of certain performance targets. Unfortunately, due principally to the very difficult economic environment, in no case have those targets been met. As a consequence the value ultimately realized for the assets was very much lower than expected, and the cash received has been much less. This situation was exacerbated by the long time taken to find buyers and negotiate the transactions, during which a degree of uncertainty and distraction has affected the clients and market alike. During this extended period the Group has continued to be burdened with a level of overhead, including very substantial and expensive bank debt secured on its property that is no longer maintainable with the revenues being generated. As a consequence the Group has no significant businesses left, has high operating costs and is short of funds.

Your Board now considers that the plan to become an incubator fund cannot be realized since the Group has little of its own funds and that there is little prospect of it raising significant equity funding. Therefore we have taken the decision to sell the Groups investment in Epay, as it would have required very significant funding for approximately another two years before it becomes financially self- supporting. The Investment was sold for US $800,000 half of which has already been received. The remainder is deferred but is not contingent. The Board is currently reviewing its investment in Impelsys, which although it does not require any funding, could be sold to provide much needed funds.

Although the balance sheet of the Group appears to contain cash resources, almost all of this is held in Escrow by the Company's bank in India as cash collateral for the future capital repayments on the Company's loans. This escrow was required as a condition of the sale of the businesses that had hitherto generated the funds to make repayments. Consequently just after the year end the Group was forced to seek emergency financial help from its main shareholder in order to meet its ongoing liabilities as they fell due. An amount of US $1million was provided on terms by which the money can be partly or fully set off against invoices for software development work that was awarded to the Group by the main shareholder. This work is being carried out at the Groups normal arms-length rates.

Despite changes that have been made the Group continues to incur losses of approximately US$300,000 per month, a situation that is unsustainable and irreversible within the time available from present funding.

The Board has therefore developed a restructuring plan which we hope to implement before the end of this year. The plan involves disposing of the remaining businesses, and taking the company into more profitable IT enabled business sector which has potential to improve shareholder value. We have identified a buyer in a suitable high technology sector who is interested in a reverse takeover to acquire Calsofts listing and reputation; and we have opened discussions with Calsofts's major shareholder for a possible sale of the company's intellectual property which was originally developed for them, and to whom it therefore still has some value. We are in negotiations to find an acceptable structure and value for these transactions and we will be writing to shareholders again in due course
