Report on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Elder Pharmaceuticals Limited ("the Company") which comprise the Balance Sheet as at 30th June, 2014, and the Statement of Profit and Loss and the Cash Flow Statement for the year ended on that date, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes.

Management''s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and presentation of financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance and cash flow of the Company in accordance with applicable Accounting Standards referred to in sub-section (3C) of section 211 of the Companies Act 1956 ("the Act") read with the General Circular 15/2013 dated 13 September 2013 of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in respect of section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013. This responsibility includes the designing, implementing and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and presentation of financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditors'' Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with Standards on Auditing issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor''s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company''s preparation and fair presentation of financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity''s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our modified audit opinion.

Basis for Qualified Opinion

1. Fixed Assets

Some of the company''s Plant & Machineries acquired/installed have not been put to use and some have been operational for a small fraction of the installed capacity. Further, Capital work-in-progress-being carried forward as such since previous year''s, are yet to be capitalized and put to use. On such assets, the company has not provided for impairment loss.

Non provision of impairment loss is a departure from AS-28 "Impairment of Assets" as prescribed under the Act. Management has neither provided a Technical Evaluation Report nor a Valuation Report in order to arrive at the fair value and, consequently, quantifying the possible impairment loss on these assets could not be arrived.

2. Long Term Loans & Advances

i) Writing off Trade Advances and Other Advances

Pursuant to the authorization of resolution passed by the Board of Directors, the Company has written off Trade Advances Rs. 17,624.04 lacs and other advances Rs. 85,532.10 lacs, made to various parties on current account either during the year or in earlier financial years. We have been informed that there were no stipulations for repayments thereof.

The reasons for writing off, details to ascertain financial capability of these parties and confirmation/details of these accounts were not made available to us. Also, we have not been provided any information and documentary evidence in respect of actions initiated by the company for recovery of these advances.

ii) Capital Advances, Trade Advances and Other Advances:

As regards to Capital Advances Rs. 3,041.00 lacs, Trade Advances Rs. 3,625.57 lacs and Other Advances (net) paid for Brand Building Payments Rs. 7,850.00 lacs, documentation/confirmation as also reconciliation, if any, were not made available to us for our verification and examination.

3. Trade Receivables

Pursuant to the Resolution passed by the Board of Directors, the Company has written off during the year Trade Receivables aggregating to Rs. 32,270.76 lacs since the same has not been acquired by Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited (Refer Note No. 29). The company has stated that Trade Receivables pertaining to products transferred to Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited cannot be recovered.

We have neither been provided confirmation to verify the balance of such accounts nor actions initiated by the company for recovery of such Trade Receivables.

4. Legal suits

As informed, various legal suits have been filed against the Company under various Acts and Statutes applicable to the Company, the same are being contested by the Company at various foras. The outcome of such suits and their impact on the affairs of the Company were not made available/explained to us.

Emphasis of Matter

Without qualifying our report, we draw attention to the following points:

1. We draw attention to Note No. 40 of the Notes annexed to and forming part of the financial statements stating that the financial statements are being prepared on a going concern basis, notwithstanding the fact that the Company has sold and transferred its branded domestic formulations business in India and Nepal to Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited on a slump sale basis. There are major liabilities outstanding towards vendors, statutory dues and payment to fixed deposit holders and non-convertible debenture holders. These events cast significant doubt on the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern. The appropriateness of the said basis is interalia dependent on the Company''s ability to streamline its operations as well as infusing requisite finance to meet its short term and long term financial obligations and other statutory liabilities.

The Company mentions that the proceeds of such sale and transfer were used to repay financial obligations of banks/institutions. Further, for details of exceptional items and working thereof, refer Note No. 29.

2. We draw your attention to Note No. 29 of the Notes annexed to and forming part of the financial statements. With a view to reducing the debts of the Company, the Board of Directors of the Company had approved the proposal to restructure the Company''s business involving either raising of capital, hiving off of assets or other strategic options and had appointed advisors for the purpose. The Company had offered for sale on slump sale basis its business of sale, marketing and distribution of the products of Team A-2 and Team B - Gynae through sales force or otherwise, in India and Nepal (excluding exports from India and Nepal) which included amongst others, intellectual property, current assets, specified liabilities, employees, data and records, third party manufacturing contracts, C & F agreements, etc. as a going concern and a definitive Business Transfer Agreement was signed with Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited, Ahmedabad, on 13 December 2013 for a total consideration of Rs. 200,400.00 lacs. The said slump sale transaction was consummated and closed on 29 June 2014.

3. Balances under Trade Receivables, Inter-division balances, Loans & Advances in several cases as also in case of a few Bank Accounts have not been reconciled / confirmed and consequently reconciliation / adjustments, if any, required upon such confirmation are not ascertainable. (Refer Note No. 33)

4. The company provides gratuity benefit to its employees as per AS 15 "Employee Benefits". Based on actuarial valuation as at March 31,2014, the Company was having plan assets of Rs. 965.58 lacs against the actuarial liability of Rs. 1,293.94 lacs. (Refer to Note No. 37).
