11. SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS IN SUBSIDIARIES, JOINT VENTURES AND ASSOCIATES

These financial statement are separate financial statements prepared in accordance with Ind AS-27 “Separate Financial Statements”. The Company has following investment in subsidiaries as at March 31, 2017

12. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING JUDGMENTS, ESTIMATES AND ASSUMPTIONS

The preparation of the Company’s financial statements requires management to make judgments, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the accompanying disclosures, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities. Uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could result in outcomes that require a material adjustment to the carrying amount of assets or liabilities affected in future year/periods.

(i) Estimates and assumptions:

The key assumptions concerning the future and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the reporting date, that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year, are described below. The Company based its assumptions and estimates on parameters available when the financial statements were prepared. Existing circumstances and assumptions about future developments, however, may change due to market changes or circumstances arising that are beyond the control of the Company. Such changes are reflected in the assumptions when they occur.

(ii) Defined benefit plans (gratuity benefits):

The cost of the defined benefit gratuity plan and the present value of the gratuity obligation are determined using actuarial valuations. An actuarial valuation involves making various assumptions that may differ from actual developments in the future. These include the determination of the discount rate, future salary increases and mortality rates. Due to the complexities involved in the valuation and its long-term nature, a defined benefit obligation is highly sensitive to changes in these assumptions. All assumptions are reviewed at each reporting date.

The parameter most subject to change is the discount rate. In determining the appropriate discount rate for plans, the management considers the interest rates of government bonds.

The mortality rate is based on publicly available mortality tables. Those mortality tables tend to change only at interval. Future salary increases and gratuity increases are based on expected future inflation rates.

Further details about gratuity obligations are given in Note 30.

(iii) Taxation:

In preparing financial statements, there are many transactions and calculations for which the ultimate tax determination is uncertain. The Company recognises liabilities for anticipated tax issues based on estimates of whether additional taxes will be due. The uncertain tax positions are measured at the amount expected to be paid to taxation authorities when the Company determines that the probable outflow of economic resources will occur. Where the final tax outcome of these matters is different from the amounts that were initially recorded, such differences will impact the current and deferred income tax assets and liabilities in the period in which such determination is made.

(iv) provisions and contingencies:

The assessments undertaken in recognising provisions and contingencies have been made in accordance with the applicable Ind AS.

A provision is recognized if, as a result of a past event, the Company has a present legal or constructive obligation that can be estimated reliably, and it is probable that an outflow of economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation. Where the effect of time value of money is material, provisions are determined by discounting the expected future cash flows.

The Company has significant capital commitments in relation to various capital projects which are not recognized on the balance sheet. In the normal course of business, contingent liabilities may arise from litigation and other claims against the Company. Guarantees are also provided in the normal course of business. There are certain obligations which management has concluded, based on all available facts and circumstances, are not probable of payment or are very difficult to quantify reliably, and such obligations are treated as contingent liabilities and disclosed in the notes but are not reflected as liabilities in the financial statements.

(v) Fair value measurement of financial instruments:

When the fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities recorded in the balance sheet cannot be measured based on quoted prices in active markets, their fair value is measured using valuation techniques. The inputs to these models are taken from observable markets where possible, but where this is not feasible, a degree of judgement is required in establishing fair values. Judgements include considerations of inputs such as liquidity risk, credit risk and volatility. Changes in assumptions about these factors could affect the reported fair value of financial instruments. Refer note 42 for such measurement.

(vi) Intangible asset under development

The Company capitalises intangible asset under development for a project in accordance with the accounting policy. Initial capitalisation of costs is based on management’s judgement that technological and economic feasibility is confirmed, usually when a product development project has reached a defined milestone according to an established project management model. In determining the amounts to be capitalised, management makes assumptions regarding the expected future cash generation of the project, discount rates to be applied and the expected period of benefits.

13. FAIR VALUE

Set out below, is a comparison by class of the carrying amounts and fair value of the Company’s financial instruments, other than those with carrying amounts that are reasonable approximations of fair value.

The carrying value and fair value of financial instruments by categories as of March 31, 2017 were as follows:

The management assessed that cash and cash equivalents, trade receivables, trade payables, bank overdrafts and other current liabilities approximate their carrying amounts largely due to the short-term maturities of these instruments.

The fair value of the financial assets and liabilities is included at the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale.

Long-term fixed-rate and variable-rate receivables/deposit are evaluated by the Company based on parameters such as interest rates, specific country risk factors, individual creditworthiness of the customer and the risk characteristics of the financed project. Based on this evaluation, allowances are taken into account for the expected credit losses of these receivables/deposits.

- The fair values of the quoted notes and bonds are based on price quotations at the reporting date. The fair value of unquoted instruments, loans from banks and other financial liabilities, obligations under finance leases, as well as other non-current financial liabilities is estimated by discounting future cash flows using rates currently available for debt on similar terms, credit risk and remaining maturities.

14. SEGMENT INFORMATION

Operating Segments:

The Company is engaged in the business of film exhibition and production. There are no separately identifiable business segment considering the proportion of revenues, profits and assets of the Company. Hence no separate disclosures have been made in line with Ind AS - 108 on Segment Reporting.

16. FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVE AND POLICIES

The Company’s principal financial liabilities comprise of loans and borrowings, trade and other payables. The main purpose of these financial liabilities is to finance the Company’s operations and to provide guarantees to support its operations. The Company’s principal financial assets include loans, trade and other receivables, and cash and cash equivalents that derive directly from its operations.

The Company is exposed to Market risk, credit risk, Legal, taxation and Accounting risk and liquidity risk. Company’s Treasury teams overseas the management of these risks supported by senior management.

(a) Market Risk:

Market risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Market risk comprises three types of risk: interest rate risk, currency risk and other price risk, such as equity price risk and commodity risk. Financial instruments affected by market risk include loans and borrowings, deposits, FVTOCI investments and derivative financial instruments.

(i) Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. The Company’s exposure to the risk of changes in market interest rates relates primarily to the long-term debt obligations with floating interest rates.

The Company manages its interest rate risk by having a balanced portfolio of fixed and variable rate loans and borrowings.

Interest Rate sensitivity:

The following table demonstrates the sensitivity to a reasonably possible change in interest rates on that portion of loans and borrowings affected. With all other variables held constant, the Company’s profit before tax is affected through the impact on floating rate borrowings, as follows:

(ii) Currency risk

Currency risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of financial instruments will fluctuate because of the change in foreign currency exchange rates.

The Majority of the Company’s revenue and expenses are in Indian Rupees, with the remainder denominated in US Dollars. Management considers currency risk to be low and does not hedge its currency risk. As variations in foreign currency exchange rates are not expected to have a significant impact on the results of operations, a sensitivity analysis is not presented.

(b) Legal, taxation and Accounting risk:

Change to any of the above laws, rules, regulations related to PVR Business could have a material impact on its financial results. Compliance with any proposed changes could also result in significant cost of PVR. Failure to fully comply with various laws, rules and regulations may expose PVR to proceedings which may materially affect its performance.

PVR is presently involved into various judicial, administrative, regulatory and litigation proceedings concerning matters arising in the ordinary course of business operations including but not limited to landlord-tenant disputes, tax disputes(including entertainment tax subsidy and other direct and indirect tax matters like Service tax, Sales tax etc.), and other contractual disputes. Many of these proceedings seek an indeterminate amount of damages. In situations where management believes that a loss arising from a proceeding is probable and can reasonably be estimated, PVR records the amount of the probable loss. As additional information becomes available, any potential liability related to these proceedings is assessed and the estimates are revised, if necessary.

To mitigate these risks, PVR employs in-house counsel and uses third party tax and legal experts to assist in structuring significant transactions and contracts. PVR also has systems and controls that ensure the timely delivery of financial information in order to meet contractual and regulatory requirements and has implemented disclosure controls and Internal controls over financial reporting which are tested for effectiveness on an ongoing basis.

(c) Credit Risk

Credit risk is the risk of financial loss to the Company if a customer fails to meet its contractual obligation. Management believes the credit risk on cash and cash equivalents is low because the counterparties are banks with high credit ratings.

Trade receivables are amount billed to customers for the sale of goods and services, and represent the maximum exposure to credit risk of those financial assets, exclusive of the allowance for doubtful debts. Normal credit terms for amounts due from customers is within 0-90 days which is in line with Industry practice.

The Company does not require collateral or other security from customers; however, credit evaluations are performed prior to the initial granting of credit when warranted and periodically thereafter. Based on policy, the Company records a reserve for estimated uncollectible amounts, which management believes reduce credit risk. Management assesses the adequacy of reserve quarterly, taking into account historical experience, current collection trend, the age of the receivables and, when warranted and available, the financial condition of specific counterparties.

Due to diversified client base, management believes the Company does not have a significant concentration of credit risk.

(d) Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will encounter difficulty in meeting obligations associated with its financial liabilities. The Company monitors its risk of a shortage of funds using a liquidity planning tool.

The Company’s objective is to maintain a balance between continuity of funding and flexibility through the use of bank overdrafts, bank loans, debentures, finance leases and advance payment terms.

17. CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

For the purpose of the Company’s capital management, capital includes issued equity capital, share premium and all other equity reserves attributable to the equity holders. The primary objective of the Company’s capital management is to maximise the shareholder value.

The Company manages its capital structure and makes adjustments in light of changes in economic conditions and the requirements of the financial covenants. To maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may adjust the dividend payment to shareholders, return capital to shareholders or issue new shares. The Company monitors capital using a gearing ratio, which is long term debts plus amount payable for purchase of fixed assets divided by total equity.

9. The Company is entitled to exemption from payment of entertainment tax in respect of some of its multiplexes, in accordance with the scheme of the respective State Governments. The Company's contention that Entertainment tax is a capital receipt and the Company's appeal for not setting off such capital receipt from the value of fixed assets was rejected by Assessing Officer and Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeals) for Asessment Years 2006-07 onwards. The Company had filed appeal against the order of CIT (Appeals) before the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT), Delhi in respect of the assessment year 2006-07 and 2007- 08. Subsequent to the year end, the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal, Delhi for Assessment Year 2006-07 has accepted Company's contention of treating Entertainment Tax as a capital receipt and for not setting off such capital receipt from block of fixed assets. Based on the above order, the Company has re-computed its tax liability in respect of current tax and deferred tax for the said year for which the favorable order has been received and accordingly income tax provision for earlier years has been reduced by Rs 775,683 and deferred tax charge for earlier years has been reduced by Rs. 3,366,725.

While the matter relating to Assessment Year 2007-08 is pending with ITAT and for Assessment Years 2008-09 and 2009-10 with CIT (Appeals), the Company is confident for entitlement as mentioned above. However, till the time favourable orders are received from ITAT, the Company continues with its earlier position and has provided for Income tax and deferred tax liabilities for the Assessment year 2007-08 onwards by treating the Entertainment Tax (E.T.) as capital receipt and reducing the notional amount of E.T. from the block of fixed assets while calculating depreciation on fixed assets.

10. The Company had filed a Special Leave Petition (SLP) before Hon'ble Supreme Court against the order of Hon'ble High Court of Delhi which upheld the levy of Service tax vide its order dated September 23, 2011. The Hon'ble Supreme Court passed an interim direction on October 21, 2011 directing the Company to deposit with the Service tax Department 50% of arrears towards service tax till September 30, 2011 in three equated installments within six months and for balance 50% to furnish a solvency surety. Further as per the directions of the Hon'ble Supreme Court, the Company is paying the service tax towards renting of immovable property from October 2011 onwards. Though the matter is still pending with the Hon'ble Supreme Court, in view of the above developments, the Company considers it prudent to make provision in its books for the entire amount of service tax on immovable property. As a result, the current year service tax on rent (net of cenvat credit) of Rs. 79,055,520 is clubbed with Rent expenses and Rs. 141,624,348 (net of cenvat credit) related to period before March 31, 2011 is shown as exceptional item in the statement of profit and loss.
