Management's Responsibility for the 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 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 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.

Auditors' Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these 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 there under.

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. 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 financial statements.

Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the aforesaid 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 31st March, 2015, and its loss and its cash flows for the year ended on that date.

Disputed Liability in respect of Cane Price for the Season 2013-14

We draw the attention of the members to Note No. D-2 of Notes to Financial Statements regarding disputed differential liability in respect of Cane Price amounting to Rs. 4,657.94 lakh for Ugar Unit and Jewargi Unit. The Government of Karnataka had notified cane price for the season 2013 14 @ Rs. 2,500 per MT, ex field, for sugar factories in Northern Karnataka, which is more than that actually paid / provided for by the Company; and @ Rs. 2,500 per MT, ex-gate, for sugar factories in Southern Karnataka.

As explained to us, having regard to prevalent declining sugar prices, the sugar factories have filed appeal with the Division Bench of the Hon'ble High Court of Karnataka, through their Association, against the declaration of the State Government and decision of the Single Judge of the Hon'ble High Court ruling in favour of the State Government.

Further in case of Jewargi Unit, currently considered as Northern Karnataka and cane price being declared on ex-field basis, petition has been filed with Hon'ble High Court to consider it as a factory in Southern Karnataka for paying cane price on ex-gate basis.

The ultimate outcome of the above matters cannot presently be determined and the matters being sub judice, provision for any liability that may arise in this respect, will be made on final resolution of the issue.

Our opinion is not modified in respect of these matters.
