We have audited the attached Balance Sheet of Gloster Limited (the "Company") as at 31st March, 2012, and the related Statement of Profit and Loss and Cash Flow Statement for the year ended on that date annexed thereto, which we have signed under reference to this report. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's Management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

2. We conducted our audit in accordance with the auditing standards generally accepted in India. Those Standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.

Had the aforesaid insurance claim not been recognised in keeping with the consideration of prudence, Other Income would have been Rs 113.82 lakhs instead of the reported amount of Rs 659.82 lakhs, profit before tax for the year would have been Rs 2,217.27 lakhs instead of the reported amount of Rs2,763.27 lakhs, current tax for the year would have been Rs 754.85 lakhs instead of the reported amount of Rs 932 lakhs, profit after tax for the year would have been Rs 1,524.68 lakhs instead of the reported amount of Rs1,893.53 lakhs, earnings per share (basic and diluted) would have been Rs58.27 instead of the reported amount of T72.36 per share, Current Assets would have been Rs 8,772.43 lakhs instead of the reported amount of Rs 9,318.43 lakhs, Short Term Provisions would have been Rs 812.06 lakhs instead of the reported amount ofRs989.21 lakhs and Reserves & Surplus would have been Rs26,885.54 lakhs instead of the reported amount of Rs 27,254.39 lakhs.
