Note:

The Company has received the above show cause notices from the Service Tax Authorities, for the service tax amount on the commission received by the company from M/s Western Union for money transfer services.

The Company has contested the above notices and an appeal has been fi led against the above orders with the Central Excise and Service Tax Appellate Tribunal, for the stay on the demand orders.

The Company has contested the above notices as Money Transfer Services is considered to be part of Export Services and hence no service tax is payable on the same. Also, based on previously issued CBEC circulars and industry wide representation in the matter, there are favorable chances that the appeal will be decided in favour of the company.

4. In the course of acquisition of Goldman Securities Private Limited (GSPL) by the current promoters, the business of Instant Cash was also acquired. Such Investment in GSPL which is purely temporary in nature, was hived off into a 100% subsidiary to enable disposal of such business as per its valuation. While the management's intention for disposal continues, the actual sale has been delayed pending obtaining NOC from the principal of Instant Cash business as also obtaining RBI approval for transfer of MTSS License in GSPL. Having now received this NOC and Full Fledged Money Changer (FFMC) license from RBI, an enterprise valuation of such business has been obtained from expert valuers, according to which, the investments is likely to fetch a value which would be exceeding the cost of such investments. Under these circumstances, despite the apparent intrinsic value of GSPL as per financial statements appear lower than the cost, considering the market value of intangible assets and the demand for such licenses being high, no provision is considered necessary.

5. In the opinion of the Board, current assets, loans and advances have value equal to the amount shown in the Balance Sheet, if realized in the ordinary course of business.
