Key Audit Matters
Key audit matters are those matters that in our professional judgmentwere of most significance in our audit of the standalone financial statements of thecurrent period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the standalonefinancial statements as a whole and in forming our opinion thereon and we do not providea separate opinion on these matters. We have determined the matters described below to bethe key audit matters to be communicated in our report.
Valuation of unquoted financial assets held at fair value
Description of Key Audit Matter:
The valuation of the Company's unquoted financial assets held at fairvalue was a key area of audit focus due to the significance of the amount and complexityinvolved in the valuation process. The management makes significant judgements because ofthe complexity of the techniques and assumptions used in valuing some of the level 3investment securities given the limited external evidence and unobservable market dataavailable to support the Company's valuations.
The valuation of the level 3 investment securities are dependent onmarket conditions and key assumptions made. The determination of these assumptions iscomplex and requires the exercise of management judgements.
See Note 1.2 (B) (o) Note 3 and Note 42 to the financial statements.
· We assessed the design and operating effectiveness of theCompany's key controls supporting the identification measurement and oversight ofvaluation risk of financial assets.
· For the more judgemental valuations which depend onunobservable inputs we evaluated the assumptions methodologies and models used by theCompany.
· We also assess the appropriateness of the methodologies usedand found that these are reasonable in the context of the relevant investments.
· We examined the calculation of the inputs used for substantiveand arithmetical accuracy by performing re-calculations wherever required.

Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether thefinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraudor error and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assuranceis a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordancewith SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements canarise from fraud or error and are considered material if individually or in theaggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of userstaken on the basis of these financial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain professional scepticism throughout the audit. We also:
? Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of thefinancial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit proceduresresponsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate toprovide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatementresulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involvecollusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internalcontrol.
? Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant tothe audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances.Under section 143(3)(I) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion onwhether the Company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperating effectiveness of such controls.
? Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and thereasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.
? Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the goingconcern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a materialuncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on theCompany's ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a materialuncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to therelated disclosures in the financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate tomodify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to thedate of our auditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the Companyto cease to continue as a going concern.
? Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of thefinancial statements including the disclosures and whether the financial statementsrepresent the underlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fairpresentation.
Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the financialstatements that individually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economicdecisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may beinfluenced. We consider quantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planningthe scope of our audit work and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) toevaluate the effect of any identified misstatements in the financial statements.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding amongother matters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findingsincluding any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during ouraudit.
We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that wehave complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and tocommunicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thoughtto bear on our independence and where applicable related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance wedetermine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the financialstatements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describethese matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosureabout the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a mattershould not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing sowould reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
