9.1 (i) Fair value hierarchy

This note explains about basis for determination of fair values of various financial assets and liabilities:

Level 1: Level 1 hierarchy includes financial instruments measured using quoted prices. This includes quoted equity instruments, mutual funds and derivative financial instruments. The fair value of all such instruments that are traded in the stock exchanges is valued using the closing price at the reporting date.

Level 2: The fair value of financial instruments that are not traded in an active market (for example: Over-the-counter derivatives) is determined using valuation techniques which maximise the use of observable data and rely as little as possible on entity-specific estimates. If all significant inputs required to fair value an instrument are observable, the instrument is included in level 2. Fair value of derivative financial instruments are measured using closing rates as provided by the financial institutions as at the reporting date.

Level 3: If one or more of the significant inputs is not based on observable market data, the instrument is included in level 3.

(ii) Valuation technique used to determine fair value

Specific value techniques used to value financial instruments include:

- the use of quoted market prices for listed instruments.

- the fair value of forward foreign exchange contracts is determined using forward exchange rates at the balance sheet date.

- the fair value of foreign currency option contracts is determined using option pricing models.

- the fair value of remaining financial instruments is determined using discounted cash flow analysis.

(iii) Fair value of financial assets and liabilities that are not measured at fair value but fair value disclosures are required The carrying values of financial assets and liabilities approximate the fair values.

9.2 Financial risk management objective

The Company has constituted a Risk Management Committee. The Company has in place a Risk management framework to identify, evaluate business risks and challenges across the Company both at corporate level as also separately for each business division. These risks include market risks, credit risk and liquidity risk.

The Company minimises the effects of these risks by using derivative financial instruments to hedge risk exposures. The use of derivative financial instruments and investment of excess liquidity is governed by the Company’s policies approved by the Board of Directors, which provide written principles on the use of such instruments consistent with the Company’s risk management strategy.

The Company does not enter into or trade financial instruments including derivative financial instruments, for speculative purposes.

9.3 Credit risk

Credit risk refers to the risk that the counterparty will default on its contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Company. The Company has adopted a policy of only dealing with creditworthy counterparties and obtaining sufficient collateral, where appropriate as a means of mitigating the risk of financial loss from defaults. Credit risk is managed by the Company through approved credit norms, establishing credit limits and continuously monitoring the creditworthiness of customers to which the Company grants credit terms in the normal course of business. On account of adoption of Ind AS 109, the Company uses expected credit loss model to assess the impairment loss. Credit risk arises principally from the Company’s receivables from customers. Refer Note 10.2 for the disclosures for trade receivables.

Credit risk on liquid funds, Inter Corporate Deposits and derivative financial instruments is limited because the counterparties are banks and companies with high credit-ratings assigned by credit-rating agencies.

9.4 Liquidity risk

The Company has an approved policy to invest surplus funds from time-to-time in various short-term instruments. Security of funds and liquidity shall be the primary consideration while deciding on the type of investments.

The Company manages liquidity risk by maintaining adequate reserves, banking facilities and reserve borrowing facilities, by continuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows and by matching the maturity profiles of financial assets and liabilities. The company expects to meet its other obligations from operating cash flows and proceeds of maturing financial assets.

Liquidity risk tables

The following table below analyses the Company’s financial liabilities into relevant maturity groupings based on their maturities for:

- all non-derivative financial liabilities, and

- derivative financial liabilities, that are net settled.

The tables have been drawn on an undiscounted basis based on the earliest date on which the Company can be required to pay.

9.5 Market risk

The market risks to which the Company is exposed are price risk {refer note a) below} and foreign currency risk {refer note b) below}.

a) Price Risk:

The Company is exposed to fluctuations in gold price (including fluctuations in foreign currency) arising on purchase/ sale of gold.

To manage the variability in cash flows, the Company enters into derivative financial instruments to manage the risk associated with gold price fluctuations relating to all the highly probable forecasted transactions. Such derivative financial instruments are primarily in the nature of future commodity contracts, forward commodity contracts and forward foreign exchange contracts. The risk management strategy against gold price fluctuation also includes procuring gold on loan basis, with a flexibility to fix price of gold at any time during the tenor of the loan.

The use of such derivative financial instruments is governed by the Company’s policies approved by the Board of Directors, which provide written principles on the use of such instruments consistent with the Company’s risk management strategy.

As the value of the derivative instrument generally changes in response to the value of the hedged item, the economic relationship is established.

The Company assesses the effectiveness of its designated hedges by using the same hedge ratio as that resulting from the quantities of the hedged item and the hedging instrument that the Company actually uses. However, this hedge ratio will be rebalanced, when required (i.e., when the hedge ratio for risk management purposes is no longer optimal but the risk management objective remains unchanged and the hedge continues to qualify for hedge accounting), by adjusting weightings of the hedged item and the hedging instrument.

Sources of hedge ineffectiveness include mismatch in the weightings of the hedged item and the hedging instrument and the selling rate.

- The line item in the Balance Sheet that include the above hedging instruments are other financial assets and other financial liabilities.

As at March 31, 2017, the aggregate amount of gains under forward/future contracts is recognised in “Other Comprehensive Income” and accumulated in the cash flow hedging reserve. It is anticipated that the sales will take place during 6 months of the next financial year, at which time the amount deferred in equity will be reclassified to the statement of profit and loss. Details of movements in hedging reserve is as follows:

b) Foreign currency risk management

The company is exposed to foreign exchange risk arising through its sales and purchases denominated in various foreign currencies.

(i) The risk management strategy on foreign currency exchange fluctuation arising on account of purchase/ sale of gold is covered in Note 35.6 above.

(ii) In respect of normal purchase and sale transactions denominated in foreign currency, the Company enters into forward foreign exchange contracts and option contracts to mitigate the risk of changes in exchange rates on foreign currency exposures. These contracts are measured at fair value through profit and loss.

Foreign currency sensitivity analysis:

The Company is mainly exposed to USD and Euro currencies. The Company’s sensitivity to a 1% increase and decrease in ‘ against the relavant foreign currencies is presented below:

The sensitivity analysis includes only outstanding foreign currency denominated monetary items and adjusts their translation at the period end for a 1% change in foreign currency rates. There is a decrease in profit and equity by Rs.14 lakhs where INR weakens by 1% against the relavant currencies. For a 1% strengthning of the ‘ against the relavant currencies there would be a comparable increase in profit and equity.

9.6 The Company’s exposure to forward foreign exchange contracts and option contracts at the end of the reporting year are as follows:

The Company has 159 forward exchange contracts for US Dollars 638 lakhs equivalent to Rs.42,721 lakhs (2016: 6 forward exchange contracts for US Dollars 56 lakhs equivalent to Rs.3,734 lakhs and April 1, 2015: 13 forward exchange contracts for US Dollars 108 lakhs equivalent to Rs.6,778 lakhs), and Nil forward exchange contracts for Euro (2015: 3 forward exchange contracts for Euro 4 lakhs equivalent to Rs.282 lakhs) for firm commitment of purchases.
