We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion As discussed in the Note 23 to the Financial Statements, the SSS submitted on 28 September 2006 an Application to Tender Shares in respect of its entire holdings of the Common Capital Stock of Equitable PCI, Bank, Inc. (EPCIB) pursuant to the Tender Offer of SM Investments Corporation (SMIC) in concert with its affiliates, to acquire all of the outstanding common shares of EPCIB. The offer period was from 29 August 2006 to 29 September 2006. On 29 September 2006, SSS and SMIC entered into a conditional purchase and sale agreement on the subject shares of stocks under the terms and condition of the Tender Offer, provided, that on or before 02 October 2008, proceedings over the said shares pending before the Supreme Court shall be resolved with finality. Due to this pending case, both parties agreed to deposit in escrow with a trustee bank the installment dues. On 13 September 2007, the Supreme Court dismissed the said case and the decision became final and executory on 28 November 2007. Also as THELMO Y. CUNANAN CORAZON S. DE LA PAZ-BERNARDO ERLINDA O. DEL ROSARIO disclosed in Note 2.4d, SSS uses trade-date in recording regular purchase and sale of investments. Chairman, SS Commission President and CEO Vice President, Controllership Accordingly, in compliance with Philippine Accounting Standards (PAS) 39 – Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement, SSS should recognize the subject sale in 2007, when the agreement was freed of any impediment. 28 November 2007 is the trade-date or the date SSS commitment to sell the EPCIB shares was freed of any impediment. The non-recognition of the subject sale in 2007 overstated the financial assets-available-for-sale (AFS) by P17.28B, understated the receivable account by the same amount, and understated the income realized on AFS by P9.11B. In our opinion, except for the effect on the financial statements of the matter referred to in the preceding paragraph, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Social Security System as of December 31, 2007, and of its financial performance and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Philippine Financial Reporting Standards.
