3 Financial Risk Management

The Company has exposure to the following risks arising from financial instruments:

- Credit risk;

- Market risk; and

- Liquidity risk

The Company's Board of Directors has overall responsibility for the establishment and oversight of the Company’s risk management framework. The Board of Directors along with the top Management are responsible for developing and monitoring the Company's risk management policies.

The Company's risk management policies are established to identify and analyze the risks faced by the Company, to set appropriate risk limits and controls and to monitor risks and adherence to limits. Risk management policies and systems are monitored & reviewed periodically to reflect changes in market conditions and the Company's activities. The Company, through its training, standards and procedures, aims to maintain a disciplined and constructive control environment in which all employees understand their roles and obligations. The key risks and mitigating actions are placed before Management of the Company who then evaluates and takes the necessary corrective action.

[A] Credit risk

Credit risk is the risk of financial loss to the Company if a customer or counterparty to a financial instrument fails to meet its contractual obligations, and arises principally from the Company’s receivables from customers, cash and cash equivalents and deposits with banks, investment in securities and other financial instruments measured at amortized cost.

The carrying amounts of financial assets represents maximum credit risk exposure.

Credit risk is managed through credit approvals, establishing credit limits and continuously monitoring the creditworthiness of customers to which the Company grants credit terms in the normal course of business. The Company establishes an allowance for doubtful debts and impairment that represents its estimate of incurred losses in respect of trade and other receivables and investments.

However, the credit risk arising on cash and cash equivalents is limited as the Company invest in deposits with banks and financial institution with credit ratings and strong repayment capacity. Investment in securities primarily include investment in liquid mutual funds units and equity shares.

Trade receivables

The Company’s exposure to credit risk is influenced mainly by the individual characteristics of each customer. The demographics of the customer, including the default risk of the industry and country in which the customer operates, also has an influence on credit risk assessment. Credit risk is managed through credit approvals, establishing credit limits and continuously monitoring the creditworthiness of customers to which the Company grants credit terms in the normal course of business.

Expected credit loss assessment

The Company allocates each exposure to a credit risk grade based on a variety of data that is determined to be predictive of the risk of loss (e.g. timeliness of payments, available press information etc.) and applying experienced credit judgement.

Exposures to customers outstanding at the end of each reporting period are reviewed by the Company to determine incurred and expected credit losses. Historical trends of impairment of trade receivables do not reflect any significant credit losses. Given that the macroeconomic indicators affecting customers of the Company have not undergone any substantial change, the Company expects the historical trend of minimal credit losses to continue.

Cash and cash equivalent

As at the year end, the Company held cash and cash equivalents of Rs. 82.62 lakhs (31 March 2017 - Rs. 260.21 lakhs , 1 April 2016 - Rs. 124.36 lakhs ). The cash and cash equivalents are held with banks with good credit rating.

Other bank balances

Other bank balances are held with banks with good credit rating.


The Company limits its exposure to credit risk by generally investing in liquid mutual funds and securities of counterparties that have a good credit rating. The Company does not expect any losses from non-performance by these counter-parties.

Other financial assets

Other financial assets are neither past due nor impaired.

Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will encounter difficulty in meeting the obligations associated with its financial liabilities that are settled by delivering cash or another financial asset. The Company’s approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will have sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities when they are due, under both normal and stressed conditions, without incurring unacceptable losses or risking damage to the Company’s reputation.

The Company regularly monitors the rolling forecasts to ensure it has sufficient cash on an on-going basis to meet operational needs. Any short term surplus cash generated, over and above the amount required for working capital management and other operational requirements, is retained as cash and cash equivalents (to the extent required) and any excess is invested in interest bearing term deposits and liquid mutual funds with appropriate maturities to optimize the cash returns on investments while ensuring sufficient liquidity to meet its liabilities

[C] Market risk

Market risk is the risk that changes in market prices - such as foreign exchange rates and equity prices - will affect the Company’s income or the value of its holdings of financial instruments. The Company is exposed to market risk primarily related to foreign exchange rate risk. Thus, our exposure to market risk is a function of revenue generating and operating activities in foreign currency. The objective of market risk management is to avoid excessive exposure in our foreign currency revenues and costs.

(i) Foreign currency risk

The Company is subject to the risk that changes in foreign currency values impact the Company’s exports revenue and imports of raw material. The risk exposure is with respect to various currencies viz. USD, GBP and EURO. The risk is measured through monitoring the net exposure to various foreign currencies and the same is minimized to the extent possible.

(ii) Price risk

The Company is mainly exposed to the price risk due to its investment in mutual funds and equity shares. The price risk arises due to uncertainties about the future market values of these investments.

At 31 March 2018, the investments in mutual funds amounts to Rs. 2,013.25 lakhs (31 March 2017: Rs. 2,027.63 lakhs and 1 April 2016: Rs. 1,921.80 lakhs ). These are exposed to price risk.

The Company has laid policies and guidelines which it adheres to in order to minimize price risk arising from investments in equity mutual funds.

1% increase in prices would have led to approximately an additional Rs. 20.13 lakhs gain in the Statement of Profit and Loss (2015-16: Rs. 20.28 lakhs gain). 1% decrease in prices would have led to an equal but opposite effect.

4 Fair Value Measurements

Accounting classification and fair values

The following table shows the carrying amounts and fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities, including their levels in the fair value hierarchy. It does not include fair value information for financial assets and financial liabilities if the carrying amount is a reasonable approximation of fair value.


Fair value is the amount for which an asset could be exchanged, or a liability settled between knowledgeable willing parties in an arm’s length transaction. The Company has made certain judgements and estimates in determining the fair values of the financial instruments that are (a) recognized and measured at fair value and (b) measured at amortized cost and for which fair values are disclosed in the financial statements.

To provide an indication about the reliability of the inputs used in determining fair value, the Company has classified the financial instruments into three levels prescribed under the accounting standard. An explanation of each level is as follows:

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. This includes mutual funds and listed equity instruments that have quoted price. The mutual funds are valued using the closing NAV.

Level 2: Level 2 hierarchy includes financial instruments that are not traded in an active market is determined using valuation techniques which maximize the use of observable market data and rely as little as possible on entity-specific estimates.

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


Specific valuation techniques used to value financial instruments include

- the use of quoted market prices for mutual funds

- the use of quoted market prices for equity instruments

There are no items in the financial instruments, which required level 3 valuation.

5. Capital Management

Equity share capital and other equity are considered for the purpose of Company’s capital management.

The Company manages its capital so as to safeguard its ability to continue as a going concern. The capital structure of the Company is based on Management’s judgement of its strategic and day-to-day needs with a focus on total equity so as to maintain investor, creditors and market confidence.

The Management and the Board of Directors monitor the return on capital as well as the level of dividends to shareholders. The Company may take appropriate steps in order to maintain, or if necessary adjust, its capital structure.

6. Segment Information

A. Basis for segmentation

The Company operates only in one segment namely manufacturing and servicing of Electrolytic products. The products being sold under this segment are of similar nature. The Company's Chief Operating Decision Maker (CODM) reviews the internal management reports prepared based on an aggregation of financial information for the Company on a periodic basis.

7 Employee Benefit Obligations

(a) Defined Contribution plans

The Company offers its employees defined contribution plan in the form of provident fund, family pension fund and superannuation fund. Provident fund and family pension fund cover substantially all regular employees while the superannuation fund covers certain executives. The Company makes specified monthly contributions towards employees provident fund to government administrative provident fund scheme which is a defined contribution plan. Contributions are paid during the period into separate funds under certain approved securities. While both the employees and the Company pay predetermined contributions into the provident fund, contributions into the family pension fund and the superannuation fund are made only by the Company. The contributions are normally based on a certain proportion of the employee’s salary. The Company does not have any obligation beyond the amounts already contributed.

(b) Defined Benefit plans

Gratuity: The Company provides for gratuity, a defined benefit plan (the “Gratuity Plan”) covering eligible employees in accordance with the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. The Gratuity Plan provides a lump sum payment to vested employees at retirement, death, incapacitation or termination of employment, of an amount based on the respective employee’s salary and the tenure of employment. The Company’s liability is actuarially determined (using the Projected Unit Credit method) at the end of each year. The fair value of the plan assets of the trust administered by the Company, is deducted from the gross obligation.


1. Discount rate: The discount rate is based on the prevailing market yields of Indian government securities for the estimated term of the obligations.

2. Salary escalation rate: The estimates of future salary increases considered takes into account the inflation, seniority, promotion and other relevant factors.

3. Assumptions regarding future mortality experience are set in accordance with the statistics published by the Life Insurance Corporation of India.

The above sensitivity analysis are based on a change in an assumption while holding all other assumptions constant. In practice it is unlikely to occur, and changes in some of the assumptions may be correlated. The methods and types of assumption used in preparing the sensitivity analysis did not change compared to previous period.

Terms and conditions of transactions with related parties:

The sales to and purchases from related parties are made on terms equivalent to those that prevail in arm’s length transactions. Outstanding balances at the year-end are unsecured and interest free and settlement occurs in cash. For the year ended 31 March 2018, the Company has not recorded any impairment of receivables relating to amounts owed by related parties (31 March 2017 - Rs. Nil, 01.04.2016 - Rs. Nil). This assessment is undertaken each financial year through examining the financial position of the related party and the market in which the related party operates.

8 Provisions

Warranties/ recoating

The Company offers warranties for one of the critical parts of certain electro chlorinators and for some of its coating / recoating services for an initial period of two years followed by support contracts for a period of four years in the case of electro chlorinators and for a period of six years in the case of coating, eight years in case of recoating services during which period amounts are recoverable from the customers based on pre-defined terms. Estimated costs from warranty terms standard to the deliverable are recognised when revenue is recorded for the related deliverable. The Company estimates its warranty costs standard to the deliverable based on historical warranty claim experience and applies this estimate to the revenue stream for deliverables under warranty. Future costs for warranties applicable to revenue recognised in the current period are charged to the revenue account.

The warranty accrual is reviewed periodically to verify that it properly reflects the remaining obligation based on the anticipated expenditures over the balance of the obligation period. Adjustments are made when the actual warranty claim experience differs from estimates. Provisions include estimated costs of support maintenance contracts to the extent such estimated costs are expected to exceed the expected recovery during the obligation period. No assets are recognised in respect of the expected recovery on support contracts.

9 First time adoption of Ind AS Transition to Ind AS:

For the purposes of reporting as set out in Note 1, the Company has transitioned its basis of accounting from accounting standards specified in the Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules, 2006 (as amended) and other relevant provisions of the Act IGAAP (hereinafter referred to as "IGAAP") to accounting standards notified as per Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, 2014 as amended (hereinafter referred to as "Ind AS"). The accounting policies set out in note 1 have been applied in preparing the financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2018, the comparative information presented in these financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2017 and in the preparation of an opening Ind AS balance sheet at 1 April 2016 (the “transition date”).

In preparing the opening Ind AS balance sheet, the amounts reported in financial statements prepared in accordance with previous GAAP have been adjusted for the transition to Ind AS. An explanation of how the transition from previous GAAP to Ind AS has affected the financial performance, cash flows and financial position is set out in the following tables and the notes that accompany the tables. On transition, we did not revise estimates made under previous GAAP were not required except where required by Ind AS.

C. Reconciliation of Statement of Cash Flows

There were no material differences between the Statement of Cash Flows presented under Ind AS and under IGAAP.

Notes to the reconciliation:

1 Fair valuation of investments in mutual funds

Under previous GAAP, investments in mutual funds were measured at lower of cost or market price as of each reporting date.

Under Ind AS, these investments are required to be measured at fair value. The resulting fair value changes of these investments (other than equity instruments designated at FVOCI) have been recognised in the retained earnings at the date of transition and subsequently in profit or loss for the year ended 31 March 2017.

2 Fair valuation of investments in equity instruments

Under previous GAAP, investments in equity shares were measured at cost less provision for other than temporary decline in the value of such investments.

Under Ind AS, these investments are required to be measured at fair value. Fair value changes with respect to investments in equity instruments have been recognized in FVOCI - Equity investments reserve.

3 Proposed dividend

Under Indian GAAP, proposed dividends are recognized as a liability in the period to which they relate, irrespective of when they are declared. Under Ind-AS, a proposed dividend is recognised as a liability in the period in which it is declared by the Company (usually when approved by shareholders in a general meeting) or paid.

In the case of the Company, the declaration of dividend occurs after period end. Therefore, the liability recorded for this dividend and tax thereon, has been derecognised against retained earnings.

4 Remeasurements of post-employment benefit obligations

Under Ind AS, remeasurements i.e. actuarial gains and losses and the return on plan assets, excluding amounts included in the net interest expense on the net defined benefit liability are recognized in Other Comprehensive Income (OCI) instead of profit or loss. Under the previous GAAP, these remeasurements were forming part of the profit or loss for the year.

5 Rectification of Employee Benefit Provision

It represents adjustment in respect of capped sick leave benefits as per Company policy which were considered as uncapped by the actuary in prior years.

6 Deferred tax adjustments :

Indian GAAP requires deferred tax accounting using the income statement approach, which focuses on differences between taxable profits and accounting profits for the period. Ind AS 12 requires entities to account for deferred taxes using the balance sheet approach, which focuses on temporary differences between the carrying amount of an asset or liability in the balance sheet and its tax base. The application of Ind AS 12 approach has resulted in recognition of deferred tax on new temporary differences which was not required under Indian GAAP.
