In making those risk assessments; the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by the 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.  Opinion In our opinion, these financial statements give a true and fair view of the financial position of Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc (“the Company”) as at March 31, 2013, and of the Company’s financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and in the manner required by the Companies and Allied Matters Act of Nigeria and the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria Act, 2011.  Report on Other Legal and Regulatory Requirements Compliance with the requirements of Schedule 6 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act of   In our opinion, proper books of account have been kept by the Company, so far as appears from our examination of those books and the statement of financial position and the statements of comprehensive income are in agreement with the books of accounts  25 J l 2013 9

Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2013 Together with Directors' and Independent Auditor's Reports Notes to the financial statements For the year ended 31 March 2013 1 Reporting Entity Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc (“the Company”) is a company domiciled in Nigeria. The Company was incorporated in Nigeria as a private Limited liability Company on 25th June, 1959 under the name Seven‐Up Limited. On 16th May 1960, the name was changed to Seven‐Up Bottling Company Limited and thereafter to “Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc” on 26th November 1991 in compliance with the provisions of the Companies and Allied matters Act 1990. Currently, the Company’s shares are quoted on the floor of the Nigerian Stock Exchange. The majority shareholder of the company is Afelka S.A,  having 72.76% interest in the equity of Seven‐Up Bottling Company. The address of the Company’s registered office is 247, Moshood Abiola Way, Ijora, Lagos.  The Company primarily is involved in the business of bottling and sale of a wide range of soft drinks across Nigeria. 2 Basis of Preparation (a) Statement of compliance The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs). These are the Company’s first financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRSs and IFRS 1 First‐time Adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards has been applied. An explanation of how the transition to IFRSs has affected the reported financial position, financial performance and  cash flows of the Company is provided in note 28. The financial statements were authorized for issue by the Board of Directors on 25 July, 2013. (b) Basis of measurement The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost basis and the use of actuarial methods for estimating certain employee benefits, which are based on the present value of anticipated future liabilities. (c) Functional and presentation currency These financial statements are presented in Naira, which is the Company’s functional currency. All financial information presented in Naira have been rounded to the nearest thousand except where otherwise indicated. (d) Use of estimates and judgement The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with IFRSs requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. Actual results may differ from these estimates. Estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimates are revised and in any future periods affected. In particular, information about assumptions and estimation uncertainties and critical judgements in applying accounting policies that have the most significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements are described in the following notes: Note 10 Note 12 Note 15 Note 21 Note 23 Note 25 Taxation Property, plant and equipment Deferred taxation Employee benefits Financial risk management and financial instruments Contingencies 3 Significant accounting policies The accounting policies set out below have been applied consistently to all years presented in these financial statements and in preparing the opening IFRS statement of financial position at 1 April 2011 for the purposes of the transition to IFRSs unless otherwise indicated. 15
  20. 20. Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2013 Together with Directors' and Independent Auditor's Reports (a) Foreign currency  Foreign currency transactions Transactions denominated in foreign currencies are translated and recorded in Naira at the actual exchange rates at the dates of the transactions. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at the reporting date are retranslated to the functional currency at the rates of exchange prevailing at that date. The foreign currency gain or loss on monetary items is the difference between amortized cost in the functional currency at the beginning of the period, adjusted for effective interest and payments during the period, and the amortized cost in foreign currency translated at the exchange rate at the end of the year. Non‐monetary items that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are translated using the exchange rate at the date of the transaction. Foreign currency differences arising on translation are recognized in profit or loss, except for qualifying cash flow hedges, which are recognized in other comprehensive income. Non‐monetary items that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are translated using the exchange rate at the date of the transaction. (b) Financial instruments I.  Non‐derivative financial assets The Company initially recognizes loans and receivables and deposits on the date that they are originated. All other financial assets are recognized initially on the trade date at which the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. The Company derecognizes a financial asset when the contractual rights to the cash flows from the asset expire, or it transfers the rights to receive the contractual cash flows on the financial asset in a transaction in which substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the financial asset are transferred. Any interest in transferred financial assets that is created or retained by the Company is recognized as a separate asset or liability. Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount presented in the statement of financial position when, and only when, the Company has a legal right to offset the amounts and intends either to settle on a net basis or to realize the asset and settle the liability simultaneously. The Company’s non‐derivative financial assets are classified as loans and receivables. Loans and receivables are financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. Such assets are recognized initially at fair value plus any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, loans and receivables are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment losses. Loans and receivables comprise trade and other receivables. Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash on hand, Cash balances with banks and call deposits with original maturities of three months or less. Bank overdrafts that are repayable on demand and form an integral part of the company’s cash management are included as a component of cash and cash equivalents for the purpose of the statement of cash flows. Cash and cash equivalents are carried at amortised cost in the statement of financial position. II. Non‐derivative financial liabilities All financial liabilities are recognised initially on the trade date at which the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. The Company derecognises a financial liability when its contractual obligations are discharged or cancelled or expire. Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount presented in the statement of financial position when, and only when, the Company has a legal right to offset the amounts and intends either to settle on a net basis or to realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously. The Company has the following non‐derivative financial liabilities: loan and borrowings, bank overdrafts, trade and other payables. Such financial liabilities are recognised initially at fair value plus any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition these financial liabilities are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest method. 16
  21. 21. Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2013 Together with Directors' and Independent Auditor's Reports III. Share capital Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Incremental costs directly attributable to the issue of ordinary shares and share options are recognised as a deduction from equity, net of any tax effects. (c) Property, plant and equipment I. Recognition and measurement Items of property, plant and equipment are measured at cost less accumulated depreciation and any accumulated impairment losses. For the purposes of application of IFRS 1, the cost of certain items of property, plant and equipment, namely land and buildings and plant and machinery was determined by reference to previous revaluation prior to the date of transition to IFRS. The Company elected to apply the optional exemption to use this previous revaluation as deemed cost as 1 April 2011, the date of transition to IFRS. Cost includes expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the asset. Items of property, plant and equipment under construction are disclosed as capital work‐in‐progress. The cost of construction recognised includes the cost of materials and direct labour, any other costs directly attributable to bringing the assets to a working condition for their intended use, the costs of dismantling and removing the items and restoring the site on which they are located, and borrowing costs on qualifying assets. Purchased software that is integral to the functionality of the related equipment is capitalised as part of the equipment. When parts of an item of property, plant and equipment have different useful lives, they are accounted for as separate items (major components) of property, plant and equipment. Gains and losses on disposal of an item of property, plant and equipment are determined by comparing the proceeds from disposal with the carrying amount of property, plant and equipment, and are recognised net within other income in profit or loss. II .Subsequent costs The cost of replacing a part of an item of property, plant and equipment is recognized in the carrying amount of the item if it is probable that the future economic benefits embodied within the part will flow to the Company and its cost can be measured reliably. The carrying amount of the replaced part is derecognized. The costs of the day‐to‐day servicing of property, plant and equipment are recognized in profit or loss as incurred. III. Depreciation Items of property, plant and equipment are depreciated from the date they are available for use or, in respect of capital‐work‐in‐progress, from the date that the asset is completed and ready for use.  Depreciation is calculated to consume the cost of items of property, plant and equipment less their estimated residual values using a straight‐line basis over their estimated useful lives. Depreciation is generally recognized in profit or loss, unless the amount is included in the carrying amount of another asset. Leased assets are depreciated over the shorter of the lease term and their useful lives unless it is reasonably certain that the Company will obtain ownership by the end of the lease term in which case the assets are depreciated over the useful life. The estimated useful lives for the current and comparative periods are as follows: • Leasehold land •  Buildings •  Plant and machinery ‐ moulds ‐ Other plant and machinery •  Motor vehicle •  Furniture and fittings •  IT equipment • Returnable packaging  materials ‐ Bottles ‐ Crates Over lease period or 99 years, whichever is lower 20 years 3 years 7 years 5 years 10 years 4 years 5 years 7 years 17
  22. 22. Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2013 Together with Directors' and Independent Auditor's Reports Depreciation methods, useful lives and residual values are reviewed at each financial year end and adjusted if appropriate.  Capital work‐in‐progress is not depreciated. The attributable cost of each asset is transferred to the relevant asset category immediately the asset is available for use and depreciated accordingly (d) Intangible assets I. Software Purchased software with finite useful life is measured at cost less accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses. II. Subsequent expenditure Subsequent expenditure is capitalised only when it increases the future economic benefits embodied in the specific asset to which it relates. All other expenditure, including expenditure on internally generated goodwill and brands, is recognised in profit or loss as incurred. III. Amortisation Amortisation is calculated over the cost of the asset, or other amount substituted for cost, less its residual value. Amortisation is recognized in profit or loss on a straight‐line basis over the estimated useful lives of intangible assets, other than goodwill, from the date that they are available for use, since this most closely reflects the expected pattern of consumption of the future economic benefits embodied in the asset. The estimated useful life for the current and comparative periods is as follows: • Computer software      4 years Amortisation methods, useful lives and residual values are reviewed at each financial year‐end and adjusted if appropriate. (e) Leases I. Leased assets Assets held by the Company under leases for which the Company assumes substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership are classified as finance leases. Upon initial recognition the leased asset is measured at an amount equal to the lower of its fair value and the present value of the minimum lease payments. Subsequent to initial recognition, the asset is accounted for in accordance with the accounting policy applicable to that asset.. Assets held under other leases are operating leases and the leased assets are not recognised in the Company’s statement of financial position. II. Lease payments Payments made under operating leases are recognised in profit or loss on a straight‐line basis over the term of the lease. Lease incentives received are recognised as an integral part of the total lease expense, over the term of the lease. Minimum lease payments made under finance leases are apportioned between the finance expense and the reduction of the outstanding liability. The finance expense is allocated to each period during the lease term so as to produce a constant periodic rate of interest on the remaining balance of the liability. (f) Inventories Inventories are measured at the lower of cost and net realizable value. The cost of inventories includes expenditure incurred in acquiring the inventories, production or conversion costs and other costs incurred in bringing them to their existing location and condition. In the case of manufactured inventories and work‐in‐progress, cost includes an appropriate share of production overheads based on normal operating capacity. Cost incurred in bringing each product to its present location and condition is based on: Raw and non‐retunable packaging materials purchase cost on a first‐ in, first ‐ out basis including transportation and clearing costs weighted average cost of direct materials and labour plus a  18
  23. 23. Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2013 Together with Directors' and Independent Auditor's Reports Products‐ in‐ process and manufactured finished  goods reasonable proportion of manufacturing overheads based  on normal levels of activity Engineering spares: purchase cost on a weighted average cost basis, including  transportation and clearing costs Goods‐in‐transit: purchase cost incurred to date Weighted average cost and standard cost are reviewed periodically to ensure they consistently approximate historical cost.  Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less the estimated costs of completion and selling expenses. Engineering spares that are generic in nature are classified as inventory and are recognised in the profit or loss as consumed. Allowance is made for obsolete, slow moving or defective items where appropriate. (g)  Impairment I. Non‐derivative financial assets A financial asset not carried at fair value through profit or loss is assessed at each reporting date to determine whether there is objective evidence that it is impaired. A financial asset is impaired if objective evidence indicates that a loss event has occurred after the initial recognition of the asset, and that the loss event had a negative effect on the estimated future cash flows of that asset that can be reliably estimated. Objective evidence that financial assets are impaired can include; default or delinquency by a debtor, restructuring of an amount due to the Company on terms that the Company would not consider otherwise, indications that a debtor or issuer will enter bankruptcy, or the disappearance of an active market for a security. In addition, for an investment in an equity security, a significant or prolonged decline in its fair value below its cost is objective evidence of impairment. The Company considers evidence of impairment for receivables at both a specific asset and collective level. All individually significant receivables are assessed for specific impairment. All individually significant receivables found not to be specifically impaired are then collectively assessed for any impairment that has been incurred but not yet identified. Receivables that are not individually significant are collectively assessed for impairment by grouping together receivables with similar risk characteristics. In assessing collective impairment, the Company uses historical trends of the probability of default, timing of recoveries and the amount of loss incurred, adjusted for management’s judgement as to whether current economic and credit conditions are such that the actual losses are likely to be greater or less than suggested by historical trends. An impairment loss in respect of a financial asset measured at amortised cost is calculated as the difference between its carrying amount and the present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the asset’s original effective interest rate. Losses are recognized in profit or loss and reflected in an allowance account against receivables. Interest on the impaired asset continues to be recognized through the unwinding of the discount. When a subsequent event causes the amount of impairment loss to decrease, the decrease in impairment loss is reversed through profit or loss. An impairment loss is reversed only to the extent that the asset’s carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined, if no impairment loss had been recognised. II. Non‐financial assets The carrying amounts of the Company’s non‐financial assets, other than inventories are reviewed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any indication of impairment. If any such indication exists, then the asset’s recoverable amount is estimated. For goodwill and intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives or that are not yet available for use, the recoverable amount is estimated each year at the same time. The recoverable amount of an asset or cash‐generating unit is the greater of its value in use and its fair value less costs to sell. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre‐tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to 19

For the purpose of impairment testing, assets that cannot be tested individually are grouped together into the smallest group of assets that generates cash inflows from continuing use that are largely independent of the cash inflows of other assets or groups of assets (the “cash‐generating unit, or CGU”). The Company’s corporate assets do not generate separate cash inflows. If there is an indication that a corporate asset may be impaired, then the recoverable amount is determined for the CGU to which the corporate asset belongs. An impairment loss is recognized if the carrying amount of an asset or its CGU exceeds its estimated recoverable amount. Impairment losses are recognized in profit or loss. Impairment losses recognized in respect of CGUs are allocated first to reduce the carrying amount of any goodwill allocated to the units, and then to reduce the carrying amounts of the other assets in the unit (group of units) on a pro rata basis. In respect of other assets (excluding Goodwill for which impairment loss is not reversed), impairment losses recognized in prior periods are assessed at each reporting date for any indications that the loss has decreased or no longer exists. An impairment loss is reversed if there has been a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable amount. An impairment loss is reversed only to the extent that the asset’s carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined, net of depreciation or amortization, if no impairment loss had been recognised. (h) Employee benefits I. Defined Contribution plans A defined contribution plan is a post‐employment benefit plan under which an entity pays fixed contributions into a separate entity and has no legal or constructive obligation to pay further amounts in respect of all employee benefits relating to employee service in current and prior periods. In line with the provisions of the Pension Reform Act 2004, the Company has instituted a defined contribution pension scheme for their permanent staff. Staff contributions to the scheme are funded through payroll deductions. Obligations for contributions to the defined contribution plan are recognised as employee benefit expense in profit or loss in the periods which related services are rendered by employees. Employees contribute 7.5% each of their Basic salary, Transport & Housing allowances to the Fund on a monthly basis. The Company also contributes 7.5% of each employee’s Basic salary, Transport & Housing allowances. II. Defined benefit plans A defined benefit plan is a post‐employment benefit plan other than a defined contribution plan. The Company’s net obligation in respect of defined benefit gratuity scheme is calculated by estimating the amount of future benefit that employees have earned in return for their service in the current and prior years and that benefit is discounted to determine its present value. In determining the liability for employee benefits under the defined benefit scheme, consideration is given to future increases in salary rates and the Company's experience with staff turnover. The Company's liability with respect to this scheme is determined by an independent actuarial valuation every year using the projected unit credit method. Actuarial gains and losses arising from differences between the actual and expected outcome in the valuation of the obligation are recognized in other comprehensive income. The effect of any curtailment is also charged in full in profit or loss immediately when the curtailment occurs. The discount rate is the yield on Federal Government of Nigeria issued bonds that have maturity dates approximating the terms of the company’s obligation. Although the scheme is not funded, the Company ensures that adequate arrangements are in place to meet its obligations under the scheme. III.Other long term employee benefits The Company’s other long‐term employee benefits represent Long Service Awards scheme instituted for all permanent employees. The Company’s obligation in respect of the Long Service Awards scheme is the amount of future benefits that employees have earned in return for their service in the current and prior periods. The benefit is discounted to determine its present value. The discount rate is the yield at the reporting date on Federal Government of Nigeria issued bonds that have maturity dates approximating the term of the Company’s obligation. The calculation is performed using the Projected Unit Credit method. Any actuarial gains and losses are recognized in other comprehensive income. 20

Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2013 Together with Directors' and Independent Auditor's Reports IV.Termination benefits Termination benefits are recognised as an expense when the Company is committed demonstrably, without realistic possibility of withdrawal, to a formal detailed plan to either terminate employment before the normal retirement date, or to provide termination benefits as a result of an offer made to encourage voluntary redundancy. Termination benefits for voluntary redundancies are recognised as an expense if the Company has made an offer of voluntary redundancy, it is probable that the offer will be accepted, and the number of acceptances can be estimated reliably. If benefits are payable more than 12 months after the reporting period, then they are discounted to their present value. V.Short‐term employee benefits Short‐term employee benefit obligations are measured on an undiscounted basis and are expensed as the related service is provided. A liability is recognised for the amount expected to be paid under short‐term cash bonus or profit sharing plans if the Company has a present legal or constructive obligation to pay this amount as a result of past service provided by the employee, and the obligation can be estimated reliably. (i) Provisions A provision is recognised if, as a result of a past event, the Company has a present legal or constructive obligation that can be estimated reliably, and it is probable that an outflow of economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation. Provisions are determined by discounting the expected future cash flows at a pre‐tax rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the liability. The unwinding of the discount is recognised as finance cost. (j) Contingent liabilities A contingent liability is a possible obligation that arises from past events and whose existence will be confirmed only by the occurrence or non‐occurrence of one or more uncertain future events not wholly within the control of the company, or a present obligation that arises from past events but is not recognised because it is not probable that an outflow of resources embodying economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation; or the amount of the obligation cannot be measured with sufficient reliability. Contingent liabilities are only disclosed and not recognised as liabilities in the statement of financial position. If the likelihood of an outflow of resources is remote, the possible obligation is neither a provision nor a contingent liability and no disclosure is made. (k) Revenue Revenue from the sale of goods in the course of ordinary activities is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable, net of value added tax, sales returns, trade discounts and volume rebates. Revenue is recognised when persuasive evidence exists that the significant risks and rewards of ownership have been transferred to the buyer, recovery of the consideration is probable and there is no continuing management involvement with the goods, and the amount of revenue can be measured reliably. If it is probable that discount will be granted and the amount can be measured reliably, then the discount is recognised as a reduction of revenue as the sales are recognised. Transfer of significant risk and rewards of ownership is determined to be transferred to the buyer at the point of delivery to the buyer. (l) Finance income and finance costs Finance income comprises interest income on funds invested and changes in the fair value of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss where the Company holds such financial assets. Interest income is recognized as it accrues in profit or loss, using the effective interest method.   Finance costs comprise interest expense on borrowings, unwinding of the discount on provisions, changes in the fair value of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss where the Company holds such financial assets and impairment losses recognized on financial assets (other than trade receivables).  Borrowing cost that are not directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of a qualifying asset are recognized in profit or loss.  Foreign currency gains and losses are reported on a net basis. 21
  26. 26. Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2013 Together with Directors' and Independent Auditor's Reports (m) Tax Income tax expense represents the sum of current tax expense and deferred tax expense.  I.Current tax Current tax is the expected tax payable or receivable on the taxable income or loss for the year, using tax rates statutorily enacted at the reporting date, and any adjustment to tax payable in respect of previous years. The Company is subject to the following types of current income tax; • Company Income Tax‐ This relates to tax on revenue and profit generated by the Company during the year, to be taxed under the Companies Income Tax Act Cap C21, LFN 2004 as amended to date. • Tertiary Education Tax‐ Tertiary education tax is based on the assessable income of the Company and is governed by the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (Establishment) Act LFN 2011 II.Deferred tax Deferred tax is recognised in respect of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for taxation purposes. Deferred tax is not recognised for: • temporary differences on the initial recognition of assets or liabilities in a transaction that is not a business combination and that affects neither accounting nor taxable profit or loss;  • taxable temporary differences arising on the initial recognition of goodwill. Deferred tax is provided for using the liability method, which represents taxation at the current rate of corporate tax on all timing differences between the accounting values and their corresponding tax values. A deferred tax asset is recognised only to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which the amount will be utilised. Deferred tax assets are reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that the related tax benefit will be realised. Deferred tax are recognized in profit or loss except to the extent that it relates to a business combination, or items recognized directly in equity or in other comprehensive income. (n) Earnings per share The Company presents basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) data for its ordinary shares. Basic EPS is calculated by dividing the profit or loss attributable to ordinary shareholders of the Company by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the period, adjusted for own shares held. Diluted EPS is determined by adjusting the profit or loss attributable to ordinary shareholders and the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding, adjusted for own shares held, for the effects of all dilutive potential ordinary shares. (o) Dividends Dividends are recognised as liability in the period they are declared. Dividends which remained unclaimed for a period exceeding twelve (12) years from the date of declaration and  which are no longer actionable by shareholders in accordance with Section 385 of Companies and Allied Matters Act  of Nigeria are written back to retained earnings. (p) Related parties Related parties include the holding company and other group entities. Directors, their close family members and any employee who is able to exert a significant influence on the operating policies of the Company are also considered to be related parties. Key management personnel are also regarded as related parties. Key management personnel are those persons having authority and responsibility for planning, directing and controlling the activities of the entity, directly or indirectly, including any director (whether executive or otherwise) of that entity. 22

Seven‐Up Bottling Company Plc Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2013 Together with Directors' and Independent Auditor's Reports (q) Segment reporting An operating segment is a distinguishable component of the Company that earns revenue and incurs expenditure from providing related products or services (business segment), or providing products or services within a particular economic environment (geographical segment), and which is subject to risks and returns that are different from those of other segments.  The Company’s primary format for segment reporting is based on business segments. The business segments are determined by management based on the Company’s internal reporting structure.  All operating segments’ operating results are reviewed regularly by the Executive Committee, which is considered to be the chief operating decision maker for the Company to make decisions about resources to be allocated to the segment and assess its performance, and for which discrete financial information is available. Where applicable, Segment results that are reported include items directly attributable to a segment as well as those that can be allocated on a reasonable basis.  (r) New standards and interpretations not yet adopted A number of new standards, amendments to standards and interpretations are effective for annual periods beginning after 31 March, 2013 and beyond, and have not been applied in preparing these financial statements. Those which may be relevant to the Company are set out below.  (i)  IFRS 9 Financial Instruments (2010), IFRS 9 Financial Instruments (2009)  IFRS 9 (2009) introduces new requirements for the classification and measurement of financial assets. Under IFRS 9 (2009), financial assets are classified and measured based on the business model in which they are held and the characteristics of their contractual cash flows. IFRS 9 (2010) introduces additions relating to financial liabilities. The IASB currently has an active project to make limited amendments to the classification and measurement requirements of IFRS 9 and add new requirements to address the impairment of financial assets and hedge accounting.  IFRS 9 (2010 and 2009) is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2015 with early adoption (ii) IFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement (2011)  IFRS 13 provides a single source of guidance on how fair value is measured, and replaces the fair value measurement guidance that is currently dispersed throughout IFRS. Subject to limited exceptions, IFRS 13 is applied when fair value measurements or disclosures are required or permitted by other IFRSs. The company is currently reviewing its methodologies in determining fair values. IFRS 13 is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013 with early adoption permitted. The extent of the impact of the above standards has not been determined and the Company does not plan to adopt these  early. 4 Determination of fair values A number of the Company’s accounting policies and disclosures require the determination of fair value, for both financial and non‐financial assets and liabilities. Fair values have been determined for measurement and/or disclosure purposes based on the following methods. When applicable, further information about the assumptions made in determining fair values is disclosed in the notes specific to that asset or liability. (a) Trade and other receivables The fair value of trade and other receivables is estimated as the present value of future cash flows, discounted at the market rate of interest at the measurement date. Fair value for short‐term receivables with no stated interest rate are measured at the original invoice amount if the effect of discounting is immaterial. Fair value is determined at initial recognition and for disclosure purposes, at each annual reporting date. (b) Non‐derivative financial liabilities Fair value, which is determined for disclosure purposes, is calculated based on the present value of future principal and interest cash flows, discounted at the market rate of interest at the reporting date. 23
