Auditor Report of ISMT Ltd.

Mar 31, 2015

We have audited the accompanying standalone financial statements of ISMT LIMITED (“the company”), which comprise the Balance Sheet as at March 31,2015, the Statement of Profit and Loss, the Cash Flow Statement for the year then ended, and a summary of the significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

Management’s Responsibility for the Standalone Financial Statements

The company’s Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section 134(5) of the Companies Act, 2013 (“the Act”) with respect to the preparation of these standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance and cash flows of the company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, including the Accounting Standards specified under Section 133 of the Act, read with Rule 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014. This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding the assets of the company and for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls, that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the 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 standalone financial statements based on our audit. We have taken into account the provisions of the Act, the Accounting and Auditing Standards and matters which are required to be included in the audit report under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made thereunder. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing specified under Section 143(10) of the Act. 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 the 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 financial control relevant to the company’s preparation of the financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on whether the company has in place an adequate internal financial controls system over financial reporting and the operating effectiveness of such controls. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of the accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by the company’s Directors, 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 audit opinion on the standalone financial statements.

Basis for Qualified Opinion

1] The company has outstanding Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) entitlement of Rs.91.44 Crore as on March 31, 2015. Taking into consideration the loss during the current financial year and carried forward losses under the Income Tax, in our opinion there is no convincing evidence that the MAT entitlement can be adjusted within the specified period against the future taxable profits under the provisions of Income Tax Act 1961. In view of the same, in our opinion, the MAT entitlement cannot be continued to be recognised as an asset in terms of “Guidance note on accounting for credit available in respect ofMAT under the Income Tax Act, 1961”. Non-writing off of the same has resulted in understatement of loss for the year and overstatement of the reserves by Rs.91.44 Crore and its consequential effect on the Earnings per Share of the company.

2] The company, through its subsidiary, has invested Rs. 48.43 Crore in Structo Hydraulics AB Sweden (SHAB). Net receivable, after taking into consideration the provision made against the same, to the company from SHAB against the supplies made is Rs. 8.38 Crore and guarantee given by the company in respect of loans availed by SHAB is Rs. 31.30 Crore. SHAB has been incurring cash losses and its net worth is also eroded. No provision for diminution in value of investment and net receivable is made by the company as explained in Note Number 3.20 forming part of the financial statements. We are unable to comment on the same and ascertain its impact, if any, on the financial statements in respect of the above matters.

3] The company has recognized claim in earlier year, of which outstanding balance as on March 31, 2015 is Rs. 40.83 Crore, against Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) for non- implementation of Energy Banking Agreement. The realization of this claim is contingent and dependent upon the outcome of the decision of the petition filed with Appellate Tribunal (APTEL) Delhi. In our opinion the recognition of above claim, being contingent asset in nature, is not in conformity with AS-29, Provisions, Contingent liabilities and Contingent assets. Recognition of the above claim has resulted in overstatement of Reserves by Rs. 40.83 Crore. Refer Note Number 3.2(ii) forming part the financial statements.

Qualified Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the effects of the matters described in the Basis for Qualified Opinion paragraph above, the aforesaid standalone financial statements give the information required by the Act in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, of the state of affairs of the company as at March 31, 2015, and its loss and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.

Emphasis of Matter

We draw attention to the following matters in the Notes to the financial statements:

Note No. 3.3 explaining the accounting treatment given for write back of depreciation amounting to Rs. 103.71 Crore consequent to change in the method of depreciation as well as adoption of useful lives of the Fixed Assets from the date of acquisition.

Note No. 1.24 regarding remuneration to the Managing Director and Executive Director amounting to Rs. 0.91 Crore, provided for in the financial statements is subject to approval of Central Government.

Our opinion is not qualified in respect of these matters.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the Financial Statements.

In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company''s preparation and fair presentation of the 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 the 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 audit opinion.

Considering the uncertainties around the assumptions used for projections of future taxable profits and its consequential effect on utilization of MAT Credit entitlement, we are unable to comment on the recoverability of Mat Credit entitlement outstanding as at March 31, 2014 and its consequential impact on the Statement of Profit and Loss for the year ended March 31, 2014 and on the Reserves of the Company as on that date.
