NOTE 5

Financial risk management

i. Risk Management framework and policies

The Company is broadly exposed to credit risk, liquidity risk and market risk (fluctuations in exchange rates, interest rates and price risk) as a result of financial instruments.

Board of Directors has the overall responsibility for the establishment, monitoring and supervision of the Company’s risk management framework. The Board has set up a Risk Management Committee, for this purpose, which is responsible for developing and monitoring the risk management policies. The Company has an established Risk Management Policy that outlines risk management structure and provides a comprehensive frame work for identification, evaluation, prioritization, treatment of various risks associated with different areas of finance and operations.

The company has a centralized Treasury function which is responsible to undertake appropriate measures to mitigate financial risk in accordance with the policies and procedures formulated by the Board. Hedging transactions are undertaken by a team with appropriate skills and experience in consultation with an external expert. The Company does not trade in derivatives for speculation.

ii. Market Risk

Market risk is the risk that changes in market prices such as foreign exchange rates, interest rates will affect the Company’s income or the value of its holdings of financial instruments. The objective of market risk management is to manage and control market risk exposures within acceptable parameters, while optimising the return.

The Company’s activities expose it primarily to the financial risks of changes in foreign exchange rates and interest rate movements (refer to notes below on currency risk and interest risk).

Currency Risk

BEL is exposed to foreign exchange risk arising from foreign currency transactions primarily relating to purchases and sales made in foreign currencies such as US Dollar, Euro, Great Britain Pound and Swiss Franc. Foreign exchange risk arises from existing and future commercial transactions and recognised assets and liabilities denominated in a currency that is not the Company’s functional currency (INR).

The Company has a Board approved currency risk management policy implemented by a Risk Management Committee that reviews the Company’s exposure to this risk on a regular basis. The Risk Management Policy recommends hedging upto 50% of the open foreign currency exposure. However the decision to enter into a hedging arrangement is made by the Risk Management Committee based on the relevant data inputs and the advice of the external specialist consultant retained for this purpose.

The Company’s export proceeds are realized mostly by remittance into an Export Earners Foreign Currency account (EEFC) which is then utilised for payments to be made in foreign currency, thereby mitigating the currency risk on exports. Imports to the extent of around 30% of annual foreign exchange outgo are not covered by the Exchange Rate Variation (ERV) clause in the related customer contract and hence are open to currency risk. These imports are benchmarked as per the policy and appropriate decision on covering the risk is taken on a case to case basis. The Company’s currency risk policy advocates forward contract hedging for mitigating risk wherever required.

As on 31 March 2017, there are no outstanding forwards contracts. The company has not entered into any forward contracts during the financial year 2016-17.

Foreign Currency sensitivity

The sensitivity of profit or loss to changes in the exchange rate arises mainly from foreign currency denominated financial instruments. The sensitivity to variations in respect of major currencies is given below . This analysis assumes that all other variables remain constant.

Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk can be either fair value interest rate risk or cash flow interest rate risk. Fair value interest rate risk is the risk of changes in fair values of fixed interest bearing investments because of fluctuations in the interest rates. Cash flow interest rate risk is the risk that the future cash flows of floating interest bearing instruments will fluctuate because of fluctuations in market interest rates.

Variable Rate Borrowing:

The company has been sanctioned a Term loan of Rs.10,000 on 31 March 2017 (Outstanding as on 31 March 2017 is Rs.5,000). Interest payable on this loan is based on SBI’s Minimum Commercial Lending Rate - MCLR. (SBI is eligible to reset the interest charged on yearly basis). There would be an additional outflow of cash of Rs.50 if the interest rate goes up by 1% and saving of Rs.50 in cashflow if interest rate goes down by 1%. There would however be no impact on profit as the interest component is capitalized since the borrowing is towards capital expenditure.

In addition the company has been sanctioned a working capital limit of Rs.2,90,000 which has not been utilised in the year end (Outstanding as on 31 March 2017 is Nil (31 March 2016 is Nil) (1 April 2015 is Nil)) in respect of which interest payable is based on SBI’s base rate. SBI is eligible to reset the interest charged on periodic basis. As the borrowing is Nil there is no impact on likely change in interest rates.

Equity Price Risk

The company’s exposure to equity price risk is negligible as its equity investment (other than in subsidiaries and Associate) is negligible.

iii. Liquidity Risk

Liquidity Risk is the risk that a Company could encounter if it faces difficulty in meeting the obligations associated with financial liabilities by delivering cash and other financial asset or the risk that the Company will face difficulty in raising financial resources required to fulfill its commitments. The Company’s exposure to liquidity risk is very minimal as it has a prudent liquidity risk management process in place which ensures maintaining adequate cash and marketable securities to pay its liabilities when they are due. To ensure continuity of funding, the Company has access to short-term bank facilities in the nature of bank overdraft facility, cash credit facility and short-term borrowings to fund its ongoing working capital requirements and growth needs when necessary.

The Company meets its liquidity requirement mainly through internally generated cash flows which is monitored centrally by treasury. There is an established process of rolling cash forecasts from various operating units which form the basis for mapping expected cash inflows, to meet the liabilities.

The table below analyses the company’s financial liabilities based on their contractual maturities. The amounts disclosed are contractual un discounted cash flows.

The company does not have any outstanding derivatives as on 31 March 2017.

iv. Credit Risk

Credit risk refers to the risk that a counter party will default on its contractual obligations resulting in financial loss to the Company. Credit risk arises from credit exposures from customers, cash and cash equivalent with banks, security deposits and loans.

The credit risk of the Company is managed at a corporate level by the risk management committee which has established the credit policy norms for its customers and other receivables. Significant amount of trade receivables are due from Government/Government Departments, Public Sector Companies (PSUs) consequent to which the Company does not have a credit risk associated with such receivables. In case of non Government trade receivables, sales are generally carried out based on Letter of Credit established by the customer thereby reducing the credit risk.

In a few cases credit is extended to customers based on market conditions after assessing the solvency of the customer and the necessary due diligence to determine credit worthiness. Advance payments are made against bank guarantee which safeguards the credit risk associated with such payments. Impairment losses on financial assets (representing mainly liquidated damages leviable for delayed deliveries and other disallowances) have been made after factoring contractual terms, etc and other indicators.

The cash and cash equivalent with banks are in the form of short term deposits with maturity period of upto 1 year. The Company has a well structured Risk Mitigation Policy whereby there are preset limits for each bank based on its net worth and earning capacity which is reviewed on a periodic basis. The Company has not incurred any losses on account of default from banks on deposits.

The credit risk in respect of other financial assets is negligible as they are mostly due from government department / parties.

Loan of Rs.4,445 given is to 100% subsidiary company. The subsidiary company has been regular in repayment of its dues (Interest and Principal) and no credit risk is expected in terms of repayment of the loan amount.

v. Capital Management

The Company’s Capital Management objective is to maintain a strong capital base to provide adequate returns to the shareholders and ensure the ability of the company to continue as a going concern. The Company has a conservative approach for raising capital through debt but reserves the right to leverage this alternative at an appropriate time to fuel growth and maintain optimal capital structure.

As part of this overall objective, the company has expanded capital base by issuing bonus shares in financial year 2015 and bought back shares in financial year 2016. The Company has a well defined Dividend Distribution Policy which lays the framework for payments of dividend and retention of surplus for future growth and enhancing shareholders wealth. The company has a nominal borrowing of Rs.5,000 as on 31 March 2017. The Company has sanctioned borrowing limits with some banks to the tune of Rs.2,90,000.

NOTE 6

NOTE 7 First Time Adoption of Ind AS Transition to Ind AS

These are the Company’s first standalone financial statements prepared in accordance with Indian Accounting Standard (Ind AS).

The transition to Ind AS has resulted in changes in the presentation of financial statements, disclosures in the notes thereto and accounting policies and principles. The accounting policies set out in the financial statements have been applied in preparing the financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2017 and the comparative information. For the purpose of transition to Ind AS, the Company has followed the guidance prescribed in Ind AS 101 (first time adoption of Indian Accounting Standards), with 1 April 2015 as the transition date from the previous GAAP. An explanation of how the transition from previous GAAP to Ind AS has affected the company’s financial position, financial performance and cash flows is set out in the following tables and notes.

I Exemptions and Exceptions Availed

Set out below are the applicable Ind AS 101 optional exemptions and mandatory exceptions applied in the transition from previous GAAP to Ind AS.

A. Ind AS optional exemptions

Property, plant and equipment, Intangible assets and Investment Property-Deemed cost

Ind AS 101 permits a first-time adopter to elect to continue with the carrying value for all of its property, plant and equipment as recognised in the previous financial statements as at the date of transition to Ind AS, and use that as its deemed cost on the date of transition after making necessary adjustments for de-commissioning liabilities. This exemption can also be used for intangible assets and investment property.

Accordingly, the company has elected to measure all of its property, plant and equipment, intangible assets and investment property at their previous GAAP carrying value as at the date of transition. The carrying values of property, plant and equipment, as aforesaid are after making adjustments relating to decommissioning liabilities.

Designation of previously recognised financial instruments

Ind AS 101 allows an entity to designate investments in equity instruments (other than equity investments in Subsidiaries, Associates) at Fair Value through Other Comprehensive Income (FVOCI) on the basis of the facts and circumstances at the date of transition to Ind AS. The Company has elected to designate its investment in equity instruments (other than equity investments in Subsidiaries, Associates) at FVOCI on the date of transition to Ind AS.

Investments in Subsidiaries and Associates

Ind AS 101 permits an entity to measure its investments in Subsidiaries, Associates at cost in accordance with Ind AS 27 (Separate Financial Statements). Accordingly, the Company has measured investments in subsidiaries and Associate at cost.

Leases

Appendix C to Ind AS 17 requires an entity to assess whether a contract or arrangement contains a lease. In accordance with Ind AS 17, this assessment should be carried out at the inception of the contract or arrangement. Ind AS 101 provides an option to make this assessment on the basis of facts and circumstances existing at the date of transition to Ind AS, except where the effect is expected to be not material.

The company has elected to apply this exemption.

The company has availed the following exemption :

B. Ind AS mandatory exceptions

De-recognition of financial assets and financial liabilities

As per Ind AS 101 a first time adopter shall apply the de-recognition principles requirements in Ind AS 109 prospectively for transactions occurring on or after the date of transition to Ind AS. However, an entity may apply the de-recognition requirements retrospectively from a date chosen by it if the information needed to apply Ind AS 109 to financial assets and liabilities recognised as a result of past transactions was obtained at the time of initially accounting for those transactions.

The company has elected to apply the de-recognition provisions of Ind AS 109 prospectively from the date of transition to Ind AS.

Classification and measurement of financial assets

As per Ind AS 101 an entity has to assess classification of financial assets on the basis of facts and circumstances existing as on the date of transition.

Accordingly, BEL has determined the classification of Financial assets based on facts and circumstances existing at the date of transition to Ind AS.

II Reconciliation between Previous GAAP and Ind AS A. Reconciliation of Equity

Previous GAAP (IGAAP) figures have been reclassified to conform to Ind AS and Schedule III presentation requirements.

i. Reconciliation of Equity as at date of transition 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2016.

C. Notes to first time adoption

i. Property, Plant and equipment

a) Under previous GAAP assets acquired out of customer grants were carried at Net value (Cost less grant value). Under Ind AS these assets have to be recognised at cost with Grant amount being credited to Deferred revenue (Customer Grant). Consequently, the amount of Property, plant and equipment has increased by Rs.697 during FY 2015-16 (Rs.1,606 as on 1 April 2015) with corresponding credit to Deferred revenue (Customer Grant). There will be no impact on Total equity because of this adjustment.

b) Due to creation of provision towards Site restoration Obligation as required under Ind AS 37 an amount of Rs.80 has been recognised as a part of Property, Plant and equipment during 2015-16 (Rs.55 as on 1 April 2015). This amount will be charged off over the Lease period.

ii. Investment Property

As required under Ind AS 40 on Investment Property, Land and building that are rented out have been reclassified as Investment property. In the previous GAAP these were classified as Property, plant and equipment. Accordingly the carrying value of Rs.14 Lakhs of Building that has been rented out has been reclassified from property, plant and equipment to Investment property as on 1 April 2015. There is no impact on the total equity on account of this adjustment.

iii. Leasing Arrangement

As permitted under Ind AS 101 the company has assessed whether a contract or arrangement contains a lease on the basis of facts and circumstances existing at the date of transition to Ind AS. Based on the assessment some leasing agreements have been identified as Operating lease and consequently an amount of Rs.180 has been decapitalised during FY 2015-16 (Rs.75 as on 1 April 2015) and the corresponding amount recognised as Non-Financial Assets. There is no impact on total equity on account of this adjustment.

iv. Adjustment to Revenue recognition and consequential adjustment to Inventories, unbilled revenue, etc

Adjustment to revenue recognized under previous GAAP has been made on account of change in timing of revenue recognition, fair value criteria,etc as per requirements of Ind AS. Due to this additional revenue of Rs.1,962 has been recognised during FY 2015-16 with increase in corresponding expenses amounting to Rs.3,222 primarily due to onerous nature of the contracts in respect of which revenue is recognised. The net impact due to above adjustments resulted in decrease in profit by Rs.1,260 during FY 2015-16.

Retained earnings have gone down by Rs.948 as on 1 April 2015 due to adjustment relating to Revenue recognition. Consequential adjustments have been made to Inventory and corresponding Assets and Liabilities.

v. Provisions

As per requirements of Ind AS 37 provision has been created in respect of Site restoration obligation, onerous contracts and warranty expenses. This has lead to increase in provision amount by Rs.11,198 during FY 2015-16 ( Rs.13,976 as on 1 April 2015 ). Consequently the total equity as on 31 March 2016 has reduced by Rs.25,094 (Rs.13,976 as on 1 April 2015) and profit for the year ended 31 March 2016 by Rs.11,118.

vi. Excise Duty

Under previous GAAP revenue from sale of products was presented net of excise duty on sales. Under Ind AS, revenue from sale of goods is presented inclusive of excise duty. The excise duty paid is presented in Statement of Profit and Loss as an expense. This change has resulted in an increase in revenue from operations and expenses for FY 2015-16 by Rs.36,751. This change in presentation has no impact on profit.

vii. Remeasurement of Post employment benefit obligations

Under Ind AS, remeasurements of Employee benefit obligations i.e., actuarial gains and losses are recognised in Other comprehensive income (OCI). Under previous GAAP these were recognised in Statement of profit and loss. Consequently an amount of Rs.5,169 (before tax) has been reclassified from Employee benefit expenses to Other Comprehensive income during FY 2015-16. However, this has no impact on profit on 31 March 2016.

Additionally, an amount of Rs.1,072 representing excess of Plan assets over net defined liability has been recognised as an Asset under Ind AS during FY 2015-16 with credit of Rs.1,749 to Other Comprehensive Income and charge of Rs.677 to employee cost. This has resulted in increase in Total Comprehensive income by Rs.1,072 as on 31 March 2016.

viii. Fair value of Investments

In accordance with Ind AS, financial assets representing investment in equity shares of entities other than subsidiaries and associates have been designated as Fair Value through Other Comprehensive Income (FVOCI) as permitted by Ind AS 109. Under previous GAAP, this investment was carried at cost. The resulting fair value changes of this investment has been recognized in Equity investment through OCI reserve as at the date of transition and subsequently in Other Comprehensive Income for the year ended 31 March 2016. This has increased “Other Comprehensive Income (OCI)’’ and “Total equity” by Rs.1 as at 31 March 2016 ( Rs.Nil as on 1 April 2015).

ix. Fair valuation of Loan given to Subsidiary Company

Loan given to subsidiary company at below market rate of interest has been fair valued resulting in recognition of the differential amount of Rs.115 as Investment in the subsidiary as on 31 March 2016 with corresponding reduction in the carrying value of the Loan. Interest Income of Rs.32 has been recognised for the year 2015-16 with corresponding increase in the outstanding Loan amount on account of unwinding of discount value. This has resulted in increase in profit by Rs.32 for the year ended 31 March 2016.

x. Deferred Tax

Deferred tax adjustment has been made in respect of temporary differences arising on account of adjustments made consequent to transition to Ind AS. This has resulted in increase in value of deferred tax asset by Rs.3,855 as on 31 March 2016 and by Rs.4,989 as on 1 April 2015 with increase in Total equity by Rs.8,844 as on 31 March 2016 (Rs.4,989 on 1 April 2015) and Profit by Rs.3,855 as on 31 March 2016.

xi. Prior period error and omissions

As required under Ind AS, if errors and omissions relating to prior period are material they have to be adjusted by restating the Opening balances of Assets, Liabilities and equity for the earliest prior period presented. Accordingly prior period income of Rs.326 reported for the year 2015-16 under previous GAAP has been adjusted against Opening reserves as on 1 April 2015 with corresponding increase in Trade receivables. This has resulted in a decrease in Profit by Rs.326 for the FY 2015-16.

xii. Interest charged on temporary financial assistance to subsidiary company BELOP has been grossed up in 2015-16 by crediting interest income by Rs.304 and corresponding increase in material cost. This has no impact on retained earnings. In addition as on 1 April 2015 an amount of Rs.14 (Rs.9 for the year 2015-16) has been credited to opening reserve with corresponding increase in Inventory in respect of unused inventory. This has increased profit and opening reserve by corresponding amount respectively.

xiii. Government Grant

As per requirements of Ind AS, amount given by Government in the capacity of a Customer should be treated as Customer grant. Accordingly, an amount of Rs.398 has been reclassified from Government Grant to customer Grant as on 1 April 2015. This change in classification does not have any impact on profit or retained earnings.

xiv. Other Adjustments

Depreciation of Rs.333 has been charged to Property, Plant and equipment as on 31 March 2016 and an equivalent amount credited to Other Income (from Customer grant). An amount of Rs.148 for the FY 2015-16 (Rs.102 as on 1 April 2015) has been charged to Profit and Loss statement and Retained earnings respectively towards other consequential adjustments due to changes explained above.

An amount of Rs.33 has been treated as “Other Income” during FY 2015-16 with corresponding debit to employee cost due to Grossing up of amount adjusted against perks etc. This has no impact on profit for the year.

xv. Redesignation of Joint Venture as an Associate

Based on assessment of control criteria, on transition to Ind AS, Investment in Joint Venture has been identified as an associate. There is no impact on Financial Statements on account of this re-assessment.

xvi. Retained Earnings

Retained Earning as on 1 April 2015 and as on 31 March 2016 has been adjusted consequent to adjustments as explained.

xvii. Impact on Cash Flow

Cash flow has decreased by Rs.1,331 for the FY 2015-16 on transition to Ind AS.

xviii.Proposed Dividend

Under previous GAAP dividends proposed by the Board of Directors after the balance sheet date before the approval of the financial statements were considered as adjusting events. Accordingly, provision for proposed dividend was recognized as a liability. Under Ind AS such dividends are recognized when it is approved by the shareholders in the general meeting. Accordingly, the liability for proposed dividend and the dividend distribution tax thereon amounting to Rs.19,546 for the FY 2015-16 (Rs.22,338 as at 1 April 2015) has been reversed with corresponding adjustment to retained earnings. Consequently the total equity increased by an equivalent amount.
