Note 2: Critical Accounting Estimates and Judgements

Preparing the financial statements under Ind AS requires management to take decisions and make estimates and assumptions that may impact the value of revenues, costs, assets and liabilities and the related disclosures concerning the items involved as well as contingent assets and liabilities at the balance sheet date. Estimates and judgements are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.

The Company make estimates and assumptions concerning the future. The resulting accounting estimates will, by definition, seldom equal the related actual results. The estimates and assumptions that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year are discussed below:

a) Useful lives of vessels

Management of the Company decided the estimated useful lives of vessels and respective depreciation. The accounting estimate is based on the expected wears and tears. Wears and tears can be significantly different following renovation each time. When the useful lives differ from the original estimated useful lives, management will adjust the estimated useful lives accordingly. It is possible that the estimates made based on existing experience are different to the actual outcomes within the next financial period and could cause a material adjustment to the carrying amount of fixed assets.

b) Residual Value

Residual value is considered as 5% of original cost of Vessel. The residual value is reviewed every year on 31st March.

c) Impairment of assets

The recoverable amount of an asset or a cash-generating unit is determined based on value-in-use calculations prepared on the basis of management’s assumptions and estimates An impairment loss is recognised for the amount by which the asset’s or cash generating unit’s carrying amount exceeds its recoverable amount and is recognised in the Statement of Profit and Loss. Recoverable amount is higher of an asset’s net selling price and its value in use. Value in use is the present value of estimated future cash flows expected to arise from the continuing use of an asset and from its disposal at the end of its useful life.

d) Defined benefit obligations

The present value of the defined benefit obligations depends on a number of factors that are determined on an actuarial basis using a number of assumptions. The assumptions used in determining the net cost (income) for post employments plans include the discount rate. Any changes in these assumptions will impact the carrying amount of such obligations.

Discount Rate for the valuation is determined by reference to market yields at the balance sheet date on Government Bonds. This is the rate that is used to determine the present value of estimated future cash outflows expected to be required to settle the defined benefit obligations.

e) Provision

Estimates of the amounts of provisions recognised are based on current legal and constructive requirements, technology and price levels. Because actual outflows can differ from estimates due to changes in laws, regulations, public expectations, technology, prices and conditions, and can take place many years in the future, the carrying amounts of provisions are regularly reviewed and adjusted to take account of such changes.

f) Impairment of Trade Receivable

The methodology followed by SCI is the use of a provision matrix as a practical expedient to measure expected credit losses on its portfolio of trade receivables. The model uses historical credit loss experience for trade receivables i.e. this model uses aging analysis of trade receivables as at the reporting date.

Considering the different services provided by our company and provisioning made segment wise in SCI, analysis and computation of expected credit loss for trade receivables is done for different segments.

g) Demurrage

Vessel Demurrage income due as per contractual terms is recognized. A provision on estimated basis is made towards deduction from demurrage based on past experience of settlements.

h) Income Tax

Due to Tonnage tax regime applicable on the main part of the company's activities, resulting in a lower income tax payable in the future, the amount of deferred tax to be recognised is limited. Considering the tonnage tax regime applicable to shipping activities, difference between taxable and book values of assets and liabilities are generally of permanent nature. This is due to the fact that the taxable result for tonnage tax eligible activities has no correlation with either carrying value or the generally applicable tax value of assets and liabilities. As a consequence, temporary differences are limited to those arising from other activities which are subject to normal Income tax provisions.

Note 5 Employee Benefit Obligations

(A) Description of type of employee benefits

a) The Company offers to its employee’s defined benefits plans in the form of Gratuity, leave encashment and post-retirement Medical Scheme

a) Represents benefits to employee on the basis of number of years of service rendered

by employee. The employee is entitled to receive the same on retirement or resignation.

i. Gratuity -

b) SCI has formed a trust for gratuity which is funded by the Company on a regular basis. The assets of the trust have been considered as plan assets.

ii. Leave Encashment Represents unavailed leave to the credit of the employee and carried forward in accordance with terms of agreement.

iii. Post-Retirement Medical Benefit Scheme Represents benefits given to employees subsequent to retirement on the happening of any unforeseen event resulting in medical costs to the employee

b) The Company offers to its employees defined contribution plan in the form of provident fund, postretirement medical scheme (New w.e.f. 01.01.2007) and pension contribution

The details of the plan are as follows:-

i. Provident Fund It is a contribution made on monthly basis @ 12% of monthly Basic and DA to the PF

Trust who credits annual interest on PF balances. The corpus accumulated is paid on retirement of the employee.

ii. Post-Retirement Medical Scheme (New It is a contribution @ 4% of monthly Basic and DA towards provision of employees’ w.e.f. 01.01.2007) medical expenses incurred after retirement.

iii. Pension contribution It is a contribution @ 12% of monthly Basic and DA towards provision of annuity after retirement of employees.

None of the financial assets of SCI have been considered in the fair value of plan assets.

The expected rate of return on plan assets has been estimated on the basis of actual returns of the trust in the past years. The securities of trust have an effect on the fair value of plan assets as the value of the securities vary with the changes in the market interest rates.

Actual Return on plan assets ' 749 lakhs (Prev. period ' 1430 lakhs)

Through its defined benefit plans, the company is exposed to a number of risks, the most significant of which are detailed below:

Asset volatility:

The plan liabilities are calculated using a discount rate set with reference to bond yields; if plan assets underperform this yield, this will create a deficit. Most of the plan asset investments is in fixed income securities with high grades and in government securities. The Company intends to maintain the above investment mix in the continuing years.

Changes in bond yields:

A decrease in bond yields will increase plan liabilities, although this will be partially offset by an increase in the value of the plans’ bond holdings. Life expectancy:

The gratuity plan obligations are to provide benefits for the life of the member, so increases in life expectancy will result in an increase in the plans’ liabilities. This is particularly significant where inflationary increases result in higher sensitivity to changes in life expectancy. Contribution expected to be paid in the next year is Nil.

The weighted average duration of the defined benefit obligation is 17.15 years (2017 - 17.78 years).

The fair value of financial instruments referred above have been classified into three categories depending on the inputs used in the valuation technique. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active market for identical assets or liabilities (level 1 measurements) and lowest priority to unobservable inputs (level 3 measurements). The categories used are as follows :

Level 1 : Level 1 hierarchy includes financial instruments measured using quoted prices. This includes mutual funds that have a quoted price. The mutual funds are valued using the closing NAV.

Level 2: The fair value of financial instruments that are not traded in an active market is determined using valuation techniques which maximise the use of observable market data and rely as little as possible on entity-specific estimates. If all significant inputs required to fair value an instrument are observable, the instrument is included in level 2.

Level 3: If one or more of the significant inputs is not based on observable market data, the instrument is included in level 3. This is the case for unlisted equity securities which are included in level.

There were no transfers between any levels during the year.

(ii) Valuation technique used to determine fair value

Specific valuation techniques used to value financial instruments include:

- the use of closing NAV for investment in mutual funds

- the use of book values for investment in unlisted equity securities

- the fair value of the remaining financial instruments is determined using discounted cash flow analysis.

(iii) Fair value measurements using significant unobservable inputs (level 3)

The following table presents the changes in level 3 items for the periods ended 31 March 2018 and 31 March 2017:

Note 7 Financial risk management

The Company has exposure to the Credit risk, Liquidity risk and Market risk.

The Company's Board of Directors has overall responsibility for the establishment and supervision of the Company's risk management framework. The Board of Directors has established the Risk Management Committee (RMC), which is responsible for developing and monitoring the Company's risk management policies. The Audit Committee oversees how management monitors compliance with the Company's risk management policies and procedures, and reviews the adequacy of the risk management framework in relation to the risks faced by the Company.

(A) Credit Risk :

(i) Credit risk is the risk of financial loss to the Company if a customer to a financial instrument fails to meet its contractual obligations. Company's exposure to credit risk primarily arises on account of its Trade receivables. Trade receivables consist of a large number of customers spread across diverse geographical areas. A default on a trade receivable is considered when the customer fails to make contractual payments within the credit period. This credit period has been determined by considering the business environment in which the Company operates.

The Company considers dealing with creditworthy customers and obtaining sufficient collateral, where appropriate, as a means of mitigating the risk of financial loss from defaults. The credit risk due to above is periodically monitored. Based on the periodical analyses, the credit risk is managed by continuous review and follow-up.

(ii) Provision for expected credit losses : The Company provides for expected credit loss on trade receivables based on a provision matrix. This matrix is a simplified basis of recognition of expected credit losses in case of trade receivables. The model uses historical credit loss experience for trade receivables i.e. this model uses aging analysis of trade receivables as at the reporting date and is based on the number of days that a trade receivables is past due. The aging has been done for bracket of 90 days over a period of last 3 years. Receivables that are more than 3 years old are considered uncollectible. Further, customers declaring bankruptcy or failing to engage in repayment plan with the Company, provisioning is made on case to case basis i.e. such customers do not form part of this impairment exercise and provided for separately.

Company manages liquidity risk by maintaining adequate reserves, banking facilities and reserve borrowing facilities, by continuously monitoring forecast and actual cash flows, and by matching the maturity profiles of financial assets and liabilities.

(ii) Maturities of financial liabilities

The tables below analyse the Company’s non-derivative financial liabilities into relevant maturity groupings based on their contractual maturities.

The tables have been drawn up based on the undiscounted cash flows of financial liabilities based on the earliest date on which the Company can be required to pay. In the table below, borrowings include both interest and principal cash flows. To the extent that interest rates are floating rate, the undiscounted amount is derived from interest rate curves at the end of the reporting period.

(C) Market risk

Market risk is the risk that changes in market indicators such foreign exchange rates, interest rates and commodity prices will affect the Company's income or the value of its financial instruments. The Company's activities mainly expose it to risks arising from changes in foreign exchange rate and interest rate and freight/charter hire rates.

(i) Foreign currency risk

The Company operates vessels in foreign waters, earns revenues and incurs expenditure in foreign currencies, primarily with respect to USD, EURO and certain other foreign currencies. Foreign currency risk arises from future commercial transactions and recognised assets and liabilities denominated in a currency that is not the Company's functional currency (INR).

Considering the business environment in which Company operates, exposure to foreign exchange rate risk is largely managed by collection of income in fore

foreign currencies in short term bank accounts abroad.

(a) Foreign currency risk exposure:

The Company’s exposure to foreign currency risk at the end of the reporting period expressed in INR, are as follows

(ii) Interest rate risk

Interest rate risk is the risk that the future cash flows of floating interest bearing borrowings will fluctuate because of fluctuations in the interest rates. The Company’s main interest rate risk arises from long-term borrowings with variable rates, which expose the Company to cash flow interest rate risk.

The Company's fixed rate borrowings are carried at amortised cost. They are therefore not subject to interest rate risk as defined in Ind AS 107, since neither the carrying amount nor the future cash flows will fluctuate because of a change in market interest rates.

The Company manages its interest rate risk by regularly monitoring the interest rate movement and deciding on type of interest rate i.e. fixed or fluctuating.

(iii) Freight/Charter hire risk

Shipping industry is governed by various national and international economic and geopolitical developments. Local and international demand and supply determine freight and charter hire rates. Since Company's vessels ply in international waters, it is affected by such developments. Also, bunker cost is major component of Company's cost structure and bunker prices are highly volatile.

Note 38: Capital management

(a) Risk management

The Company’s objectives when managing capital are to safeguard the company’s ability to continue as a going concern in order to provide returns for shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders and to maintain an optimal capital structure to reduce the cost of capital.

The Company monitors capital on the basis of the debt equity ratio. This ratio is calculated as debt divided by total equity. Debt is calculated as Long Term Borrowings (including current portion of Long Term borrowings as shown in the Balance Sheet).

(b) Loan covenants

The Company has 11 ECB Loan Agreement wherein 9 of the agreements have a financial covenant of Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR). The Company has not been able to meet the DSCR covenant. However the Company has given an alternate covenant of ‘Minimum Cash Covenant’ in lieu of the DSCR covenant in 4 of the loans and other 5 lenders have waived the DSCR default.

Note 8 During the year ended 31st March, 2018, the company lost MV SCI Ratna an Offshore Support Vessel 96 nautical miles off the coast of Mumbai on 21st November 2017. The WDV of the vessel was Rs 7535 .61 lakhs. The vessel was insured with Hull Underwriter under Hull & Machinery cover. The Company has submitted total loss claim of USD 11,000,000 to M/s Oriental Insurance Co Ltd and same was settled during the year. The Company has recognised the claim amount and loss of Rs 485.89 lakhs during the year.

Note 9 The following changes were made in accounting policy for recognising of foreign currency transactions and balances during the year:

Old Policy - All foreign currency transactions for each month are recorded at the closing exchange rate of the second last Friday of the preceding month published on xe.com website.

The foreign currency balances other than in US Dollars appearing in the books of account at the period end are translated into US Dollars at the closing exchange rate of the second last Friday of preceding month published on xe.com website. Thereafter, the monetary assets and monetary liabilities as well as the Long Term Loans are translated into rupees at SBI Mean Rate prevailing at the period end.

New Policy - All foreign currency transactions are recorded at the previous day’s available RBI reference rate/exchange rate. Since the RBI reference rate is available for four major currencies only i.e., USD, UKP EUR, YEN, exchange rates of other currencies are taken from xe.com website. The foreign currency balances in US Dollars, UK Pounds, Euro and Japanese yEn appearing in the books of account at the period end are translated into US Dollars at the available RBI reference rate/exchange rate at the period end. The foreign currency balances other than US Dollars, UK Pounds, Euro and Japanese YEN appearing in the books of account at the period end are translated into US Dollars at the rate available on xe.com website at the period end. Thereafter, the monetary assets and monetary liabilities as well as the Long Term Loans are translated into rupees at RBI reference rate/exchange rate prevailing at the period end.

The effects of above changes are not determinable. However, the Company does not expect any material impact on the financial results for the year.

Note 10The revenue from operations includes reimbursement of management expenses of Rs 120.91 Crores from Customers (Refer note no.19). The management has revised the method of allocation of “Management Expenses” on these vessels w.e.f.1st April 2017. The revised method of allocating the expenses has resulted into increase of revenue by Rs 78 Crores (approx.) for the financial year 2017-18.
