SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES: The Company maintains its official accounting records in the Republic of Korean won (“Won”) and prepares consolidated financial statements in conformity with Korean statutory requirements and Korean International Reporting Standards (“K-IFRS”), in the Korean language (Hangul). Accordingly, these consolidated financial statements are intended for use by those who are informed about K-IFRS and Korean practices. The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been condensed, restructured and translated into English with certain expanded descriptions from the Korean language financial statements. Certain information included in the Korean language financial statements, but not required for a fair presentation of the Company‟s financial position, operating results, changes in shareholders‟ equity or cash flows, is not presented in the accompanying consolidated financial statements. (1) Basis of Preparation The Company has adopted the Korean International Financial Reporting Standards (“K-IFRS”) for the annual period beginning on January 1, 2011. In accordance with K-IFRS 1101 First-time adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards, the transition date to K-IFRS is January 1, 2010. Transition adjustments from previous GAAP-Korean GAAP (“K-GAAP”), to K-IFRSs are summarized in Note 4. Currently, enactments and amendments of the K-IFRSs are in progress, and the financial information presented in the consolidated financial statements may change accordingly in the future. The Company has not applied the following new and revised K-IFRSs that have been issued but are not yet effective:
K-IFRS 1107 Financial Instruments: Disclosures – Transfers of Financial AssetsThe amendments to K-IFRS 1107 increase the disclosure requirements for transactions involving transfers offinancial assets. These amendments are intended to provide greater transparency around risk exposures when afinancial asset is transferred but the transferor retains some level of continuing exposure in the asset. Theamendments also require disclosures where transfers of financial assets are not evenly distributed throughoutthe period. K-IFRS 1107 is effective for annual periods beginning on or after July 1, 2011.Amendments to K-FIRS 1012 Deferred Tax – Recovery of Underlying AssetsThe amendments to K-IFRS 1012 provide an exception to the general principles in K-IFRS 1012 that themeasurement of deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities should reflect the tax consequences that wouldfollow from the manner in which the entity expect to recover the carrying amount of an asset. Investmentproperty measured using the revaluation model under K-IFRS 1040 Investment Property or a non-depreciableasset measured using the revaluation model in K-IFRS 1016 Property, Plant, and Equipment, are presumed tobe recovered through sale for the purposes of measuring deferred taxes, unless the presumption is rebutted incertain circumstances. The amendments to K-IFRS 1012 are effective for annual periods beginning on or afterJanuary 1, 2012.K-IFRS 1019 (as revised in 2011) Employee BenefitsThe amendments to K-IFRS 1019 change the accounting for defined benefit plans and termination benefits.The most significant change relates to the accounting for changes in defined benefit obligations and plan assets.The amendments require the recognition of changes in defined benefit obligations and in fair value of planassets when they occur, and hence eliminate the „corridor approach‟ permitted under the previous version of K-IFRS 1019 and accelerate the recognition of past service cots. The amendments to K-IFRS 1019 are effectivefor annual periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013 and require retrospective application with certainexceptions.K-IFRS 1113 Fair Value MeasurementK-IFRS 1113 establishes a single source of guidance for fair value measurements and disclosures about fairvalue measurements. The standard defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, andrequires disclosures about fair value measurements. K-IFRS 1113 is effective for annual periods beginning onor after January 1, 2013, with earlier application permitted.The Company does not anticipate that these amendments referred above will have a significant effect on theCompany‟s consolidated financial statements and disclosures.Major accounting policies used for the preparation of the consolidated financial statements are stated below.Unless stated otherwise, these accounting policies have been applied consistently to the consolidated financialstatements for the current period and accompanying comparative period.The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis except for certainproperties and financial instruments that are measured at revalued amounts or fair values, as explained in theaccounting policies below. Historical cost is generally based on the fair value of the consideration given inexchange for assets.The accompanying consolidated financial statements were approved by the board of directors on January 31,2012(2) Significant Accounting Policies1) Basis of ConsolidationThe consolidated financial statements incorporate the financial statements of the Company and entities(including special purpose entities) controlled by the Company (and its subsidiaries). Control is achieved wherethe Company has the power to govern the financial and operating policies of an entity so as to obtain benefits
- 3 -from its activities.Income and expenses of subsidiaries acquired or disposed of during the year are included in the consolidatedstatement of comprehensive income from the effective date of acquisition and up to the effective date ofdisposal, as appropriate. Total comprehensive income of subsidiaries is attributed to the owners of theCompany and to the non-controlling interests even if this results in the non-controlling interests having a deficitbalance.When necessary, adjustments are made to the financial statements of subsidiaries to bring their accountingpolicies into line with those used by the Company.All intra-group transactions, balances, income and expenses are eliminated in full on consolidation.Changes in the Company‟s ownership interests in subsidiaries that do not result in the Company losing controlover the subsidiaries are accounted for as equity transactions. The carrying amounts of the Company‟s interestsand the non-controlling interests are adjusted to reflect the changes in their relative interests in the subsidiaries.Any difference between the amount by which the non-controlling interests are adjusted and the fair value of theconsideration paid or received is recognized directly in equity and attributed to owners of the CompanyWhen the Company loses control of a subsidiary, the profit or loss on disposal is calculated as the differencebetween (i) the aggregate of the fair value of the consideration received and the fair value of any retainedinterest and (ii) the previous carrying amount of the assets (including goodwill), and liabilities of the subsidiaryand any non-controlling interests. When assets of the subsidiary are carried at revalued amounts or fair valuesand the related cumulative gain or loss has been recognized in other comprehensive income and accumulated inequity, the amounts previously recognized in other comprehensive income and accumulated in equity areaccounted for as if the Company had directly disposed of the relevant assets (i.e. reclassified to profit or loss ortransferred directly to retained earnings). The fair value of any investment retained in the former subsidiary atthe date when control is lost is recognized as the fair value on initial recognition for subsequent accountingunder K-IFRS 1039 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement or, when applicable, the cost oninitial recognition of an investment in an associate or a jointly controlled entity.2) Card assetsCard assets are amounts due from customers for services performed in the ordinary course of business. Cardassets are initially measured at a fair value including direct transaction cost; thereafter it is measured atamortized cost using the effective interest rate method except for the financial assets classified as at fair valuethrough profit or loss (FVTPL).① Card ReceivablesThe Company records card receivables when its cardholders make purchases from domestic and foreign cardmerchants, and when card members of MasterCard International, Visa International and Diners ClubInternational make purchases from domestic card merchants. Advanced merchant commission payments; andcommission from cardholders for installment payments and cash advances are recognized as revenue on anaccrual basis.② Card LoansThe Company extends the card loans to its cardholders in accordance with the Specialized Credit FinancialBusiness Law. A constant commission rate is recognized as revenue on an accrual basis.③ Cash advancesCash advances are provided to card members up to certain amounts depending on card members‟ credit ratingin accordance with the Specialized Credit Financial Business Law. Cash advances are collected from cardmembers on the payment date with specific percent service charges, and recognized as revenue on an accrualbasis.
- 4 -3) Financial assetsAll financial assets are recognized and derecognized on trade date where the purchase or sale of a financialasset is under a contract whose terms require delivery of the financial asset within the timeframe established bythe market concerned, and are initially measured at fair value, plus transaction costs, except for those financialassets classified as at fair value through profit or loss, which are initially measured at fair value.Financial assets are classified into the following specified categories: financial assets at „fair value throughprofit or loss‟ (FVTPL), „held-to-maturity‟, „available-for-sale‟ and „loans and receivables‟. The classificationdepends on the nature and purpose of the financial assets and is determined at the time of initial recognition.① Effective interest rate methodThe effective interest rate method is a method of calculating the amortized cost of a debt instrument and ofallocating interest income over the relevant period. The effective interest rate is the rate that exactly discountsestimated future cash receipts (including all fees and points paid or received that form an integral part of theeffective interest rate, transaction costs and other premiums or discounts) through the expected life of the debtinstrument, or, where appropriate, a shorter period, to the net carrying amount on initial recognition.Income is recognized on an effective interest rate method for debt instruments other than those financial assetsclassified as at FVTPL.② Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss (FVTPL)Financial assets are classified as at FVTPL when the financial asset is either held for trading or it is designatedas at FVTPL.A financial asset is classified as held for trading if: • it has been acquired principally for the purpose of selling it in the near term; or • on initial recognition it is part of a portfolio of identified financial instruments that the Company manages together and has a recent actual pattern of short-term profit-taking; or • it is a derivative that is not designated and effective as a hedging instrument.A financial asset other than a financial asset held for trading may be designated as at FVTPL upon initialrecognition if: • such designation eliminates or significantly reduces a measurement or recognition inconsistency that would otherwise arise; or • the financial asset forms part of a group of financial assets or financial liabilities or both, which is managed and its performance is evaluated on a fair value basis, in accordance with the Companys documented risk management or investment strategy, and information about the grouping is provided internally on that basis; or • it forms part of a contract containing one or more embedded derivatives, and K-IFRS 1039 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement permits the entire combined contract (asset or liability) to be designated as at FVTPL.Financial assets at FVTPL are stated at fair value, and any gains or losses arising on remeasurement arerecognized in profit or loss. The net gain or loss recognized in profit or loss incorporates any dividend orinterest earned on the financial asset and is included in the „other revenue or expenses‟ line item in theconsolidated statement of comprehensive income. And transaction cost from acquisition of them is recognizedin loss immediately when it arises.③ Held-to-maturity investmentsNon-derivatives financial assets with fixed or determinable payments and fixed maturity dates that theCompany has the positive intent and ability to hold to maturity are classified as held-to-maturity investments.Held-to-maturity investments are measured at amortized cost using the effective interest rate method less anyimpairment, with revenue recognized on an effective interest rate method basis.
- 5 -④ Available-for-sale financial assets (ABS)Non-derivatives financial assets that are not classified as at held-to-maturity, held-for-trading, designated as atfair value through profit or loss, or loans and receivables are classified as at financial assets AFS. Financialassets AFS are initially recognized at fair value plus directly related transaction costs. They are subsequentlymeasured at fair value. Unquoted equity investments whose fair value cannot be measured reliably are carriedat cost. Gains and losses arising from changes in fair value are recognized and accumulated in othercomprehensive income, with the exception of impairment losses, interest calculated using the effective interestmethod, and foreign exchange gains and losses on monetary assets, which are recognized in profit or loss.Where the investment is disposed of or is determined to be impaired, the cumulative gain or loss previouslyaccumulated in the other comprehensive income is reclassified to profit or loss. Dividends on AFS equityinstruments are recognized in profit or loss when the Company‟s right to receive the dividends is established.The fair value of AFS monetary assets denominated in a foreign currency is determined in that foreign currencyand translated at the spot rate at the end of the reporting period. The foreign exchange gains and losses that arerecognized in profit or loss are determined based on the amortized cost of the monetary asset. Other foreignexchange gains and losses are recognized in other comprehensive income.⑤ Loans and receivablesTrade receivables, loans, and other receivables that have fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted inan active market are classified as „loans and receivables‟. Loans and receivables are measured at amortized costusing the effective interest rate method, less any impairment. Interest income is recognized by applying theeffective interest rate, except for short-term receivables when the recognition of interest would be immaterial.⑥ Impairment of financial assetsFinancial assets, other than those at FVTPL, are assessed for indicators of impairment at the end of eachreporting period. Financial assets are considered to be impaired when there is objective evidence that, as aresult of one or more events that occurred after the initial recognition of the financial asset, the estimated futurecash flows of the investment have been affected.For listed and unlisted equity investments classified as AFS, a significant or prolonged decline in the fair valueof the security below its cost is considered to be objective evidence of impairment.For all financial assets classified as AFS, objective evidence of impairment could include: • significant financial difficulty of the issuer or counterparty; or • default or delinquency in interest or principal payments; or • it becoming probable that the borrower will enter bankruptcy or financial re-organization. • an active market for financial assets closes due to financial difficultiesFor certain categories of financial asset, such as card receivables, assets that are assessed not to be impairedindividually are, in addition, assessed for impairment on a collective basis. Objective evidence of impairmentfor a portfolio of receivables could include the Company‟s past experience of collecting payments, an increasein the number of delayed payments in the portfolio exceeding the average credit period, as well as observablechanges in national or local economic conditions that correlate with default on receivables.For financial assets carried at amortized cost, the amount of the impairment loss recognized is the differencebetween the asset‟s carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows, discounted at thefinancial asset‟s original effective interest rate.For financial assets measured at cost, the amount of the impairment is recognized as the difference between thecarrying amount of the asset and current value of estimated future cash flows discounted by similar to thecurrent market rate. The impairment is not reversed in subsequent periods.The carrying amount of the financial asset is reduced by the impairment loss directly for all financial assetswith the exception of card receivables, where the carrying amount is reduced through the use of an allowance
- 6 -account. When a card receivable is considered uncollectible, it is written off against the allowance account.Subsequent recoveries of amounts previously written off are credited against the allowance account. Changesin the carrying amount of the allowance account are recognized in profit or loss.When an AFS financial asset is considered to be impaired, cumulative gains or losses previously recognized inother comprehensive income are reclassified to profit or loss in the period.With the exception of AFS equity instruments, if, in a subsequent period, the amount of the impairment lossdecreases and the decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognized,the previously recognized impairment loss is reversed through profit or loss to the extent that the carryingamount of the investment at the date the impairment is reversed does not exceed what the amortized cost wouldhave been had the impairment not been recognized.In respect of AFS equity securities, impairment losses previously recognized in profit or loss are not reversedthrough profit or loss. Any increase in fair value subsequent to an impairment loss is recognized in othercomprehensive income.⑦ Derecognition of financial assetsThe Company derecognizes a financial asset only when the contractual rights to the cash flows from the assetexpire, or when it transfers the financial asset and substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of theasset to another entity. If the Company neither transfers nor retains substantially all the risks and rewards ofownership and continues to control the transferred asset, the Company recognizes its retained interest in theasset and an associated liability for amounts it may have to pay. If the Company retains substantially all therisks and rewards of ownership of a transferred financial asset, the Company continues to recognize thefinancial asset and also recognizes a collateralized borrowing for the proceeds received.If the Company derecognizes the entire financial asset, the difference between total received amount plus thesum of cumulative income recognized in other comprehensive income and the book value of the asset isrecognized in profit or loss.If the Company does not derecognize the entire financial asset, (for example, the Company holds either anoption to repurchase a certain portion of the asset or remaining shares, which does not allow the Company tohold the most of the risks and benefits from the financial asset and the Company controls assets) the Companydivides the book value of financial assets into a recognized part and a unrecognized part in accordance withrelative fair value of each portion. The difference between total received amount for derecognized portion ofthe asset plus the sum of cumulative income recognized in other comprehensive income and the book value ofthe asset is recognized in profit or loss. Cumulative income recognized in other comprehensive income isdivided into a recognized part and a unrecognized part in accordance with relative fair value of each portion.4) Property, Plant and EquipmentProperty, plant and equipment are stated at cost less subsequent accumulated depreciation and accumulatedimpairment losses. The cost of an item of property, plant and equipment is directly attributable to theirpurchase or construction, which includes any costs directly attributable to bringing the asset to the location andcondition necessary for it to be capable of operating in the manner intended by management. It also includesthe initial estimate of the costs of dismantling and removing the item and restoring the site on which it islocated.Subsequent costs are recognized in carrying amount of an asset or as a separate asset if it is probable that futureeconomic benefits associated with the assets will flow into the Company and the cost of an asset can bemeasured reliably. Routine maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred.The Company does not depreciate land. Depreciation expense is computed using the straight-line method basedon the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows: Estimated useful lives Building 40 years Fixtures and equipment 4 years Vehicles 4 years
- 7 -Each part of property and equipment with a cost that is significant in relation to the total cost are depreciatedseparately.The Company reviews the depreciation method, the estimated useful lives and residual values of property, plantand equipment at the end of each annual reporting period. If expectations differ from previous estimates, thechanges are accounted for as a change in an accounting estimate.When future economic benefits aren‟t expected through the use or disposition of property, plant and equipment,the Company removes the book value of the assets from consolidated statements of financial position. Incomeincurred from disposal of property, plant and equipment is the net amount of the trading and the book value andis recognized when the asset is removed.5) LeaseA lease is classified as a finance lease whenever the terms of the lease transfer substantially all the risks andrewards of ownership to the lessee. All other leases are classified as operating leases.The Company recognizes the lesser of the current value of minimum lease payment and the fair value of leaseassets as capital lease assets and capital lease liabilities.Lease expenses are allocated to two parts, interest expense and lease payment, to maintain a constant periodicrate on each period‟s debt balance. Financial cost except such certain qualifying assets, in accordance with theCompany‟s accounting policies, is recognized immediately as an expense in the period. Any adjustments tolease payment are recognized as cost during the period it occurred.6) Intangible assets① Intangible assets acquired separatelyIntangible assets with finite useful lives that are acquired separately are carried at cost less accumulatedamortization and accumulated impairment losses. Amortization is recognized on a straight-line basis over theirestimated useful lives. The estimated useful life and amortization method are reviewed at the end of eachreporting period, with the effect of any changes in estimate being accounted for on a prospective basis.Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives that are acquired separately are carried at cost less accumulatedimpairment losses.② Internally-generated intangible assets - research and development expenditureExpenditure on research activities is recognized as an expense in the period in which it is incurred.An internally-generated intangible asset arising from development (or from the development phase of aninternal project) is recognized if, and only if, all of the following have been demonstrated: • the technical feasibility of completing the intangible asset so that it will be available for use or sale; • the intention to complete the intangible asset and use or sell it; • the ability to use or sell the intangible asset; • how the intangible asset will generate probable future economic benefits; • the availability of adequate technical, financial and other resources to complete the development and to use or sell the intangible asset; and • the ability to measure reliably the expenditure attributable to the intangible asset during its development.The amount initially recognized for internally-generated intangible assets is the sum of the expenditure incurredfrom the date when the intangible asset first meets the recognition criteria listed above. Where no internally-generated intangible asset can be recognized, development expenditure is recognized in profit or loss in theperiod in which it is incurred.Subsequent to initial recognition, internally-generated intangible assets are reported at cost less accumulatedamortization and accumulated impairment losses, on the same basis as intangible assets that are acquired
- 8 -separately.③ Intangible assets acquired in a business combinationIntangible assets that are acquired in a business combination are recognized separately from goodwill and areinitially recognized at their fair value at the acquisition date (which is regarded as their cost).Subsequent to initial recognition, intangible assets acquired in a business combination are reported at cost lessaccumulated amortization and accumulated impairment losses, on the same basis as intangible assets that areacquired separately.④ Disposal of intangible assetsIf future economic benefits are not expected through the use or disposition of the intangible assets, theCompany removes the book value of the assets from the consolidated financial statements. Income incurredfrom the disposal of intangible assets is the net amount of the trading and book value, and is recognized whenthe asset is removed.7) Impairment of tangible and intangible assets other than goodwillAt the end of each reporting period, the Company reviews the carrying amounts of its tangible and intangibleassets to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have suffered an impairment loss. If anysuch indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset is estimated in order to determine the extent of theimpairment loss (if any). Where it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an individual asset, theCompany estimates the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs. Where areasonable and consistent basis of allocation can be identified, corporate assets are also allocated to individualcash-generating units, or otherwise they are allocated to the smallest group of cash-generating units for which areasonable and consistent allocation basis can be identified.Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives and intangible assets not yet available for use are tested forimpairment at least annually, and whenever there is an indication that the asset may be impaired.Recoverable amount is the higher of fair value less costs to sell and value in use. In assessing value in use, theestimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflectscurrent market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset for which theestimates of future cash flows have not been adjusted.If the recoverable amount of an asset (or a cash-generating unit) is estimated to be less than its carrying amount,the carrying amount of the asset (or the cash-generating unit) is reduced to its recoverable amount. Animpairment loss is recognized immediately in profit or loss.If impairment recognized in prior periods is reversed, the book value of the individual assets (or cash-generating unit) is the smaller of the carrying amount of the recoverable amount and the book value that theimpairment would not have recognized in prior periods and the reversal of impairment loss is recognizedimmediately in profit or loss at the time.8) ProvisionsProvisions are recognized when the Company has a present obligation (legal or constructive) as a result of apast event, it is probable that the Company will be required to settle the obligation, and a reliable estimate canbe made of the amount of the obligation.The amount recognized as a provision is the best estimate of the consideration required to settle the presentobligation at the end of the reporting period, taking into account the risks and uncertainties surrounding theobligation. When a provision is measured using the cash flows estimated to settle the present obligation, itscarrying amount is the present value of those cash flows (where the effect of the time value of money ismaterial).When some or all of the economic benefits required to settle a provision are expected to be recovered from athird party, a receivable is recognized as an asset if it is virtually certain that reimbursement will be receivedand the amount of the receivable can be measured reliably.
- 9 -At the end of each reporting period, the remaining provision balance is reviewed and assessed to determine ifthe current best estimate is being recognized. If the existence of an obligation to transfer economic benefit is nolonger probable, the related provision is reversed during the period.9) Financial liabilities and equity instruments① Classification as debt or equityDebt and equity instruments are classified as either financial liabilities or equity in accordance with thesubstance of the contractual arrangement.② Equity instrumentsAn equity instrument is any contract that evidences a residual interest in the assets of an entity after deductingall of its liabilities. Equity instruments issued by the Company are recognized at the proceeds received, net ofdirect issue costs.Treasury shares transactions are deducted directly from equity. Income arising from purchases and sales,issuances, and incinerations of treasury shares are not recognized in profits or losses.③ Compound instrumentsThe component parts of compound instruments issued by the Company are classified separately as financialliabilities and equity in accordance with the definition of the financial asset and liability. Convertible optionwhich can be settled by exchanging financial asset such as fixed amount of cash for the fixed number oftreasury shares is equity instruments.At the date of issue, the fair value of the liability component is estimated using the prevailing market interestrate for a similar non-convertible instrument. This amount is recorded as a liability on an amortized cost basisusing the effective interest rate method until extinguished upon conversion or at the instrument‟s maturity date.The equity component is determined by deducting the amount of the liability component from the fair value ofthe compound instrument as a whole. This is recognized and included in equity, net of income tax effects, andis not subsequently remeasured.④ Financial liabilitiesFinancial liabilities are classified as either financial liabilities at FVTPL or other financial liabilities.⑤ Other financial liabilitiesOther financial liabilities, including borrowings, are initially measured at fair value, net of transaction costs.Other financial liabilities are subsequently measured at amortized cost using the effective interest rate method,with interest expense recognized on an effective interest rate method.The effective interest rate method is a method of calculating the amortized cost of a financial liability and ofallocating interest expense over the relevant period. The effective interest rate is the rate that exactly discountsestimated future cash payments through the expected life of the financial liability, or (where appropriate) ashorter period, to the net carrying amount on initial recognition.⑥ Derecognition of financial liabilitiesThe Company derecognizes financial liabilities when, and only when, the Company‟s obligations aredischarged, cancelled or they expire.10) Derivative instrumentsThe Company enters into a variety of derivative financial instruments to manage its exposure to interest rateand foreign exchange rate risk, including interest rate swaps and cross currency swaps.
- 10 -Derivatives are initially recognized at fair value at the date the derivative contract is entered into and aresubsequently remeasured to their fair value at the end of each reporting period. The resulting gain or loss isrecognized in profit or loss immediately unless the derivative is designated and effective as a hedginginstrument, in such case the timing of the recognition in profit or loss depends on the nature of the hedgerelationship.A derivative with a positive fair value is recognized as a financial asset; a derivative with a negative fair valueis recognized as a financial liability.① Embedded derivativesDerivatives embedded in other financial instruments or other host contracts are treated as separate derivativeswhen their risks and characteristics are not closely related to those of the host contracts and the host contractsare not measured at FVTPL.② Hedge accountingThe Company designates certain derivative instruments as cash flow hedges.At the inception of the hedge relationship, the Company documents the relationship between the hedginginstrument and the hedged item, along with its risk management objectives and its strategy for undertakingvarious hedge transactions. Furthermore, at the inception of the hedge and on an ongoing basis, the Companydocuments whether the hedging instrument is highly effective in offsetting changes in cash flows of the hedgeditem.③ Cash flow hedgesThe effective portion of changes in the fair value of derivatives that are designated and qualify as cash flowhedges is recognized in other comprehensive income. The gain or loss relating to the ineffective portion isrecognized immediately in profit or loss, and is included in the „other operating revenue or expenses‟ line item.Amounts previously recognized in other comprehensive income and accumulated in equity are reclassified toprofit or loss in the periods when the hedged item is recognized in profit or loss, in the same line of theconsolidated statement of comprehensive income as the recognized hedged item.Hedge accounting is discontinued when the Company revokes the hedging relationship, when the hedginginstrument expires or is sold, terminated, or exercised, or it no longer qualifies for hedge accounting. Any gainor loss accumulated in equity at that time remains in equity and is recognized when the forecast transaction isultimately recognized in profit or loss. When a forecast transaction is no longer expected to occur, the gain orloss accumulated in equity is recognized immediately in profit or loss.11) Share capitalIncremental costs directly attributable to the issue of new shares or options are shown in equity as a deduction,net of tax, from the proceeds.Where the Parent or its subsidiary purchases the Parent‟s share capital, the consideration paid is deducted fromshareholders‟ equity as treasury shares until they are cancelled. Where such shares are subsequently sold orreissued, any consideration received is included in shareholders‟ equity.12) Commission revenue① Fees that are a part of the financial instruments‟ effective interest rateFees that are a part of the effective interest rate of a financial instrument are treated as an adjustment to theeffective interest rate. Such fees include compensation for activities such as evaluating the borrowers financialcondition, evaluating and recording guarantees, collateral, and other security arrangements, negotiating theterms of the instrument, preparing and processing documents and closing the transaction as well as origination
- 11 -fees received on issuing financial liabilities measured at amortized cost. These fees are deferred and recognizedas an adjustment to the effective interest rate. However, in case the financial instrument is classified as afinancial asset at fair value through profit or loss, the relevant fee is recognized as revenue when the instrumentis initially recognized.② Commission from rendering of servicesCommission revenue from rendering of services is recognized as the services are provided. When it is notprobable that specific loan agreement is contracted and agreed commission is not applied to K-IFRS 1039,relating those services will be recognized on a straight-line basis as the work performs.③ Commission from significant act performedThe recognition of revenue is postponed until the significant act is executed.13) Interest income and expenseUsing the effective interest rate method, the Company recognizes interest income and expense in consolidatedstatements of comprehensive income. Effective interest rate method calculates the amortized cost of financialassets or liabilities and allocates interest income or expense over the relevant period. The effective interest ratediscounts the expected future cash in and out through the expected life of financial instruments or, ifappropriate, through shorter period, to net carrying amount of financial assets or liabilities. When calculatingthe effective interest rate, the Company estimates future cash flows considering all contractual financialinstruments except the loss on future credit risk. Also, effective interest rate calculation include redemptioncosts, points (part of the effective interest rate) that are paid or earned between contracting parties, transactioncosts, and other premiums and discounts.14) Net trading profit or lossNet trading profit or loss is comprised of held for trading assets (liabilities) related to gain and loss, andincludes changes of realized (unrealized) fair value, interest, dividend, gain or loss on foreign currencytranslation.15) Dividend revenueDividend income from investments is recognized when the shareholder‟s right to receive payment has beenestablished (provided that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Company and the amount ofincome can be measured reliably).16) Foreign currenciesThe individual financial statements of the Company are presented in the currency of the primary economicenvironment in which the entity operates (its functional currency). For the purpose of the consolidated financialstatements, the results and financial position of each entity are expressed in Korean Won, which is thefunctional currency of the Company and the presentation currency for the consolidated financial statements.In preparing the financial statements of the individual entities, transactions in currencies other than the entity‟sfunctional currency (foreign currencies) are recognized at the rates of exchange prevailing at the dates of thetransactions. At the end of each reporting period, monetary items denominated in foreign currencies areretranslated at the rates prevailing at that date. Non-monetary items carried at fair value that are denominated inforeign currencies are retranslated at the rates prevailing at the date when the fair value was determined. Non-monetary items that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are not retranslated.Exchange differences are recognized in profit or loss in the period in which they arise except for exchangedifferences on transactions entered into in order to hedge certain foreign currency risks. See Note 2 (10) abovefor hedging accounting policies.
- 12 -17) Retirement benefit costsContributions to defined retirement contribution plans are recognized as an expense when employees haverendered service entitling them to the contributions.For defined retirement benefit plans, the cost of providing benefits is determined using the Projected UnitCredit Method, with actuarial valuations being carried out at the end of each reporting period. The presentvalue of the Company‟s defined benefit obligation and the fair value of plan assets as at the end of eachreporting period are amortized over the expected average remaining working lives of the participatingemployees. Past service cost is recognized immediately to the extent that the benefits are already vested, andotherwise is amortized on a straight-line basis over the average period until the benefits become vested.The retirement benefit obligation recognized in the consolidated statements of financial position represents thepresent value of the defined benefit obligation as adjusted for unrecognized actuarial gains and losses andunrecognized past service cost, and as reduced by the fair value of plan assets. Any asset resulting from thiscalculation is limited to unrecognized actuarial losses and past service cost, plus the present value of availablerefunds and reductions in future contributions to the plan.18) TaxationIncome tax consists of current tax and deferred tax.① Current taxThe tax currently payable is based on taxable profit for the period. Taxable profit differs from profit as reportedin the consolidated statement of comprehensive income because of items of income or expense that are taxableor deductible in other periods. The Company‟s liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates that havebeen enacted or substantively enacted by the end of the reporting period② Deferred taxDeferred tax is recognized on temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities inthe consolidated financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of taxable profit.Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognized for all taxable temporary differences. Deferred income taxassets are generally recognized for all deductible temporary differences to the extent that it is probable thattaxable profits will be available against which those deductible temporary differences can be utilized. Suchdeferred income tax assets and liabilities are not recognized if the temporary difference arises from goodwill orfrom the initial recognition (other than in a business combination) of other assets and liabilities in a transactionthat affects neither the taxable profit nor the accounting profit.Deferred income tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences associated with investments insubsidiaries and associates, and interests in joint ventures, except where the Company is able to control thereversal of the temporary difference and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in theforeseeable future. Deferred income tax assets arising from deductible temporary differences associated withsuch investments and interests are only recognized to the extent that it is probable that there will be sufficienttaxable profits against which to utilize the benefits of the temporary differences and they are expected toreverse in the foreseeable future.The carrying amount of deferred income tax assets is reviewed at the end of each reporting period and reducedto the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow all or part ofthe asset to be recovered.Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the periodin which the liability is settled or the asset realized, based on tax rates (and tax laws) that have been enacted orsubstantively enacted by the end of the reporting period. The measurement of deferred tax liabilities and assetsreflects the tax consequences that would follow from the manner in which the Company expects, at the end ofthe reporting period, to recover or settle the carrying amount of its assets and liabilities.
- 13 -③ Current and deferred tax for the yearCurrent and deferred tax are recognized in profit or loss, except when they relate to items that are recognized inother comprehensive income or directly in equity, in which case, the current and deferred tax are alsorecognized in other comprehensive income or directly in equity respectively. Where current tax or deferred taxarises from the initial accounting for a business combination, the tax effect is included in the accounting for thebusiness combination.19) Earnings per shareBasic earnings per share is calculated by dividing net profit from the period available to common shareholdersby the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per share iscalculated using the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding adjusted to include thepotentially dilutive effect of common equivalent shares outstanding. The weighted-average number of shares incurrent year includes convertible bond and stock option.
- 14 -3. CRITICAL ACCOUNTING JUDGEMENTS AND KEY SOURCES OF ESTIMATION UNCERTAINTY In the application of the Company‟s accounting policies, which are described in Note 2, management is required to make judgments, estimates and assumptions about the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on historical experience and other factors that are considered to be relevant. Actual results may differ from these estimates. The estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognized in the period in which the estimate is revised if the revision affects only that period, or in the period of the revision and future periods if the revision affects both current and future periods. 1) Allowance for Doubtful Accounts The Company determines and recognizes allowances for losses through impairment testing on credit card assets and other assets, such as other account receivable, advance payments and accrued income.. The Company also recognizes provisions for unused commitments. The accuracy of provisions of credit losses is determined by the risk assessment methodology and assumptions used for estimating expected cash flows of the borrower for allowances on individual loans and collectively assessing allowances for groups of loans and provisions for unused commitments. 2) Unearned revenue from point programs The Company provides its customers with incentives to buy goods or services by providing awards (called “customer loyalty programs”) and allocates the fair value of the consideration received or receivable between the award credits granted (“points”) and the other components of the revenue transaction. The Company supplies the awards such as discounted payments or free gifts. The consideration allocated to the award credits is measured by reference to their fair value, i.e. the amount for which the award credits could be sold separately. The fair value of the consideration allocated to the award credits is estimated by taking into account expected redemption rates, etc. and recognized as deferred revenue until the Company fulfills its obligations to deliver awards to customers. The amount of revenue recognized is to be based on the number of award credits that have been redeemed in exchange for awards, relative to the total number expected to be redeemed. 3) Post-Employment Benefits: Defined Benefit Plans The Company operates a defined benefit pension plan (“plan”). The amount recognized as a defined benefit liability is the present value of the defined benefit obligation less the fair value of plan assets at the end of the reporting period. The present value of defined benefit obligation is calculated annually by using actuarial assumptions such as future increases in salaries, expected returns on plan assets, discount rate and others. The plan has the uncertainty due to the nature of long-term plan. The defined benefit obligation as of December 31, 2011, December 31, 2010 and January 1, 2010 are ￦17,775 million, ￦9,608 million and ￦5,312 million, respectively. 4) Fair Value Measurement of Financial Instruments As disclosed in Note 34, the fair value of financial instruments classified as certain level are measured using valuation techniques where significant inputs are not based on observable market data. The Note 34 provides details of the key assumptions used for the measurement of the fair value and sensitivity analysis of the key assumptions. The Company believes that valuation methods and assumptions used for measuring the fair value of financial instruments are reasonable and that the fair value recognized in the statements of financial position is appropriate.

TRANSITION TO K-IFRSs Transition adjustments from previous GAAP-Korean GAAP (“K-GAAP”), to K-IFRSs that affected the Company‟s financial position, financial performance and cash flows are as follows. (1) Explanation of transition to K-IFRSs Significant differences between the accounting policies chosen by the Company under K-IFRS and under K- GAAP are as follows: 1) Changes of the scope of consolidation As of transition date, the change of the scope of consolidation as a result of adoption of K-IFRS is as follows: Changes Details Company Name Included Under K-GAAP, in accordance with the Articles of WORK&JOY SPC External audit of Stock Companies, 30% ownership PRIVIA 1st SPC and being the largest shareholder constitute control in determining the consolidating scope. Under K-IFRS, exceeding 50% of the voting power, having decision making capability and holding benefits and risks constitute control in determining the consolidation scope. (*) The Company‟s subsidiaries as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 are PRIVIA 1st SPC and PRIVIA 2nd SPC, and WORK&JOY SPC and PRIVIA 1st SPC, respectively.
