Auditor Report of JHS Svendgaard Laboratories Ltd.

Mar 31, 2015

We have audited the accompanying Standalone Financial Statements of JHS Svendgaard Laboratories 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 Directorsis 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 underSection 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 of 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.

Auditor's 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 of 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 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 qualified audit opinion.

Basis for Qualified Opinion

i) The Company has entered into "One Time Settlement" (OTS) of dues with its lender banks.As a result, the lenders have agreed to waive the principal amount on term loan facilities amounting to Rs. 30,82,89,217and such amount is credited to Capital Reserve which is not in accordance with the Accounting Standard (AS) 5 on "Net Profit or Loss for the Period, Prior Period Items and Changes in Accounting Policies".Further, the said treatment is not in line with the opinion of the Expert Advisory Committee of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India on accounting treatment of waiver of loan.

Had the said waiver of principal amount of loan been credited to the Statement of Profit and Loss instead of the credit in Capital Reserve Account, the loss for the year amounting to Rs. 22,13,91,633 would result in profit of Rs.8,68,97,584 and deficit in the Statement of Profit & Loss under the head 'Reserves & Surplus' would have been Rs.7,45,88,944 instead of Rs. 38,28,78,160 as stated.

ii) In earlier years the Company had acquired substantial tangible fixed assets to carry out contract manufacturing for a major customer. Such major customer has not renewed/terminated the contract resulting in some idle fixed assets. This and other internal factors indicate that the part of tangible fixed assets comprising plant & machinery which are carried in the books at a written down value of Rs 31,86,11,888 (Previous year Rs. 35,43,87,177) may be impaired. However, the management has not carried out any testing for impairment as required by Accounting Standard (AS) 28 "Impairment of Assets".Therefore, we are unable to comment on the necessity or otherwise to provide for an impairment loss in respect of these tangible assets as required by AS 28. The effect of the non provision of impairment loss on assets, if any, cannot be quantified.

Qualified Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the effect of the matter described in para (i) above and the possible effect of the matter described in para (ii) of theBasis for Qualified Opinion paragraph 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 Matters

We draw attention to the following notes on the financial statements:

i) In the financial year 2012-13, as per the management's decision, the Company had written off its unrealizable trade receivables amounting Rs. 48,28,92,640 which were set-off against Securities Premium Account directly. This was subject to approval of the Hon'ble High Court of Himachal Pradesh for ratifying the said adjustment. The management has decided to withdraw the said application from the Hon'ble High Court. Accordingly, during the year the Company has reversed the treatment given in the earlier year for write off amounting to Rs. 48,28,92,640 by crediting Securities Premium Account and charged the same to the Statement of Profit and Loss as on March 31, 2015.

ii) The management has explained the basis for recording provisions in respect of certain loans & advances which are doubtful of recovery. (Refer note 29(iv))

iii) The management has explained the basis for write-back of long outstanding payables. (Refer note 29(vi)& note 36 (ii))

Further, there has been termination of contract by a major customer of the Company resulting in idel fixed assets.

However, the management has not carried out any testing for impairement as required by Accounting Standard 28. Accordingly we are unable to comment on the necessity or otherwise to provide for an impairement loss in respect of these tangible assets as required by Accounting Standard 28.
