In preparing the accompanying financial statements, International Financial Reporting Standards have been followed, suitable accounting policies have been used and applied consistently, and reasonable and prudent judgements and estimates have been made.

The financial statements incorporate full and responsible disclosure in line with the significant accounting policies of the company noted on pages 23 to 30 The directors have reviewed the company budget and cash flow forecasts for the year to 30 June 2011. On the basis of this review, and in the light of the current financial position and existing borrowing facilities of the company, the directors are satisfied that Cresta Marakanelo Limited is a going concern and have continued to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the financial statements. The company’s external auditors, PricewaterhouseCoopers, have audited the financial statements and their unqualified audit report appears on page 16 of the financial statements. The Board recognises and acknowledges its responsibility for the company’s systems of internal financial control. Cresta Marakanelo Limited has adopted policies on business conduct, which cover ethical behavior, compliance with legislation and sound accounting practice and which underpin the company’s internal financial control process. The control systems include written accounting and control policies and procedures, clearly defined lines of accountability and delegation of authority, and comprehensive financial reporting and analysis against approved budgets.

  18. 18. Auditor’s Report Report on the Financial Statements We have audited the accompanying annual financial statements of Cresta Marakanelo Limited, set out on pages 18 to 56, which comprise the statement of financial position as at 30 June 2010, and the statement of comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity and the statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes. Directors’ Responsibility for the Financial Statements The directors are responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and in the manner required by the Companies Act of Botswana (Companies Act, 2003). This responsibility includes: designing, implementing and maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error; selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies; and making accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances. Auditor’s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements 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 management, 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, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects the financial position of Cresta Marakanelo Limited as of 30 June 2010, and of its financial performance and their cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and in the manner required by the Companies Act of Botswana (Companies Act, 2003). ______________________ Certified Public Accountants Gaborone Date: 10 September 2010 Cresta Marakanelo Ltd17 Annual Report
