Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethicalrequirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whetheradequate IFCoFR were established and maintained and if such controls operated effectivelyin all material respects.

Meaning of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting

6. A company’s IFCoFR is a process designed to provide reasonable assuranceregarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financialstatements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accountingprinciples. A company’s IFCoFR includes those policies and procedures that (1)pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairlyreflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) providereasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation offinancial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and thatreceipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance withauthorisations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonableassurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition use ordisposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on thefinancial statements.

Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting

7. Because of the inherent limitations of IFCoFR including the possibility ofcollusion or improper management override of controls material misstatements due to erroror fraud may occur and not be detected. Also projections of any evaluation of the IFCoFRto future periods are subject to the risk that IFCoFR may become inadequate because ofchanges in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or proceduresmay deteriorate.

Opinion

8. In our opinion the Company has in all material respects adequate internalfinancial controls over financial reporting and such internal financial controls overfinancial reporting were operating effectively as at 31 March 2016 based on the internalcontrol over financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering theessential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note.
