NOTE [44]

Disclosure pursuant to Ind AS 107 "Financial Instruments: Disclosures": Market risk management

(a) Foreign exchange rate and interest rate risk:

The Company regularly reviews its foreign exchange forward and option positions and interest rate swaps, both on a standalone basis and in conjunction with its underlying foreign currency and interest rate related exposures. The Company follows cash flow hedge accounting for Highly Probable Forecasted Exposures (HPFE) hence the movement in mark to market (MTM) of the hedge contracts undertaken for such exposures is likely to be offset by contra movements in the underlying exposures values. However, till the point of time that the HPFE becomes an on-Balance Sheet exposure, the changes in MTM of the hedge contracts will impact the Balance Sheet of the Company. Further, given the effective horizons of the Company's risk management activities which coincide with the durations of the projects under execution and could extend across 3-4 years and the business uncertainties associated with the timing and estimation of the project exposures, the recognition of the gains and losses related to these instruments may not always coincide with the timing of gains and losses related to the underlying economic exposures and, therefore, may affect the Company's financial condition and operating results. Hence, the Company monitors the potential risk arising out of the market factors like exchange rates, interest rates, price of traded investment products etc., on a regular basis. For on-Balance Sheet exposures, the Company monitors the risks on net unhedged exposures.

(i) Foreign exchange rate risk:

In general, the Company is a net receiver of foreign currency. Accordingly, changes in exchange rates and in particular a strengthening of the Indian Rupee may negatively affect the Company's net sales and gross margins as expressed in Indian Rupees. There is a risk that the Company will have to adjust local currency product pricing due to competitive pressures when there have been significant volatility in foreign currency exchange rates.

The Company may enter into foreign currency forward and option contracts with financial institutions to protect against foreign exchange risks associated with certain existing assets and liabilities, certain firmly committed transactions, forecasted future cash flows and net investments in foreign subsidiaries. In addition, the Company has entered and may enter in future, into non-designated foreign currency contracts to partially offset the foreign currency exchange gains and losses on its foreign-denominated debt issuances. The Company's practice is to hedge a portion of its material foreign exchange exposures with tenors in line with the project/business life cycle, however, the Company may choose not to hedge certain foreign exchange exposures for a variety of reasons.

To provide a meaningful assessment of the foreign currency risk associated with the Company's foreign currency derivative positions against off Balance Sheet exposures and unhedged portion of on-Balance Sheet financial assets and liabilities, the Company uses a multi-currency correlated value-at-risk ("VAR") model. The VAR model uses a Monte Carlo simulation to generate thousands of random market price paths for foreign currencies against Indian rupee taking into account the correlations between them. The VAR is the expected loss in value of the exposures due to overnight movement in spot exchange rates, at 95% confidence interval. The VAR model is not intended to represent actual losses but is used as a risk estimation tool. The model assumes normal market conditions and is a historical best fit model. Because the Company uses foreign currency instruments for hedging purposes, the loss in fair value incurred on those instruments are generally offset by increases in the fair value of the underlying exposures for on-Balance Sheet exposures. The overnight VAR for the Company at 95% confidence level is R 39.80 crore as at March 31, 2018 and R 59.80 crore as at March 31, 2017.

Actual future gains and losses associated with the Company's investment portfolio and derivative positions may differ materially from the sensitivity analysis performed as at March 31, 2018 due to the inherent limitations associated with predicting the timing and amount of changes in foreign currency exchanges rates and the Company's actual exposures and position.

(ii) Interest rate risk:

The Company's exposure to changes in interest rates relates primarily to the Company's outstanding floating rate debt. While most of the Company's outstanding debt in local currency is on fixed rate basis and hence not subject to interest rate risk.

A major portion of foreign currency debt is linked to international interest rate benchmarks like LIBOR. The Company also hedges a portion of these risks by way of derivatives instruments like Interest rate swaps and currency swaps.

* Holding all other variables constant

(b) Liquidity Risk Management:

The Company manages liquidity risk by maintaining sufficient cash and marketable securities and by having access to funding through an adequate amount of committed credit lines. Given the need to fund diverse businesses, the Company maintains flexibility in funding by maintaining availability under committed credit lines to meet obligations when due. Management regularly monitors the position of cash and cash equivalents vis-a-vis projections. Assessment of maturity profiles of financial assets and financial liabilities including debt financing plans and maintenance of Balance Sheet liquidity ratios are considered while reviewing the liquidity position.

The Company's investment policy and strategy are focused on preservation of capital and supporting the Company's liquidity requirements. The Company uses a combination of internal and external management to execute its investment strategy and achieve its investment objectives. The Company typically invests in money market funds, large debt funds, government of india securities, equity funds and other highly rated securities under a limits framework which governs the credit exposure to any one issuer as defined in its investment policy. The policy requires investments generally to be investment grade, with the primary objective of minimizing the potential risk of principal loss. To provide a meaningful assessment of the price risk associated with the Company's investment portfolio, the Company performed a sensitivity analysis to determine the impact of change in prices of the securities that would have on the value of the investment portfolio assuming a 0.5% move in debt funds and debt securities and a 5% movement in the NAV of the equity funds. Based on the investment position a hypothetical 0.5% change in the fair market value of debt securities would result in a value change of /- R 14.04 crore as at March 31, 2018 and /- R 15.98 crore as at March 31, 2017. 5% change in the equity funds NAV would result in a value change of /- R 16.24 crore as at March 31, 2018 and /- R 17.83 crore as at March 31, 2017. The investments in money market funds are for the purpose of liquidity management only and are held only overnight and hence not subject to any material price risk.

(c) Credit Risk Management:

The Company's customer profile include public sector enterprises, state owned companies and large private corporate. Accordingly, the Company's customer credit risk is low. The Company's average project execution cycle is around 24 to 36 months. General payment terms include mobilization advance, monthly progress payments with a credit period ranging from 45 to 90 days and certain retention money to be released at the end of the project. In some cases retentions are substituted with bank/corporate guarantees. The Company has a detailed review mechanism of overdue customer receivables at various levels within organization to ensure proper attention and focus for realization.

(ii) Trade receivable written off during the year but still enforceable for recovery amounts to R 409.43 crore (previous year: R Nil). Out of this R 243.62 crore included above and balance R 165.81 crore included in exceptional items. Further, exceptional items also include write off of retention money not due (non-financial asset) amounts to R 128.94 crore. (Note 46).

Valuation technique and key inputs used to determine fair value:

1. Level 1: Mutual funds, bonds, debentures and government securities- Quoted price in the active market.

2. Level 2: (a) Derivative instrument - Mark to market on forward covers and embedded derivative instruments is based on forward exchange rates at the end of reporting period and discounted using G-sec rate plus applicable spread.

(b) Preference shares - Future cash flows are discounted using G-sec rate plus applicable spread as at reporting date.

NOTE [4]

A. Exceptional items for the year ended March 31, 2018 include the following:

(i) Gain of R 198.82 crore on sale of the Company's stake in subsidiary companies viz. Larsen & Toubro Infotech Limited R 145.32 crore and L&T Technology Services Limited R 53.50 crore;

(ii) Gain on divestment of stake in L&T EWAC Alloys Limited R 351.55 crore and L&T Cutting Tools Limited R 174.91 crore;

(iii) Write off of trade receivable and retention money not due from a customer against whom insolvency proceedings are underway R 294.75 crore [note1(t)(vii)].

(c) Revenue contributed by any single customer in any of the operating segments, whether reportable or otherwise, does not exceed ten percent of the Company's total revenue.

(d) The Company's reportable segments are organized based on the nature of products and services offered by these segments.

(e) Basis of identifying operating segments, reportable segments, segment profit and definition of each reportable segment:

(i) Basis of identifying operating segments:

Operating segments are identified as those components of the Company (a) that engage in business activities to earn revenues and incur expenses (including transactions with any of the Company's other components; (b) whose operating results are reviewed by the Corporate Executive Management to make decisions about resource allocation and performance assessment; and (c) for which discrete financial information is available.

The Company has four reportable segments as described under "segment composition" below. The nature of products and services offered by these businesses are different and are managed separately given the different sets of technology and competency requirements.

(ii) Reportable segments:

An operating segment is classified as reportable segment if reported revenue (including inter-segment revenue) or absolute amount of result or assets exceed 10% or more of the combined total of all the operating segments.

(iii) Segment profit:

Performance of a segment is measured based on segment profit (before interest and tax), as included in the internal management reports that are reviewed by the Corporate Executive Management.

NOTE [5]

Disclosure pursuant to Ind AS 108 "Operating Segment" (contd.)

(iv) Segment composition

- Infrastructure segment comprises engineering and construction of building and factories, transportation infrastructure, heavy civil infrastructure, power transmission & distribution, water & effluent treatment and smart world & communication projects.

- Power segment comprises turnkey solutions for Coal-based and Gas-based thermal power plants Including power generation equipment with associated systems and/or balance-of-plant packages.

- Heavy Engineering segment comprises manufacture and supply of custom designed, engineered critical equipment and systems to core sector industries like Fertiliser, Refinery, Petrochemical, Chemical, Oil & Gas, Thermal & Nuclear Power, Aerospace and Defence.

- Others segment includes hydrocarbon, metallurgical & material handling systems, realty, shipbuilding, marketing and servicing of construction & mining machinery and parts thereof, manufacture and sale of rubber processing machinery. None of the businesses reported as part of others segment meet any of the quantitative thresholds for determining reportable segments in the year ended March 31, 2018 or the year ended March 31, 2017.

* Basis used to determine interest income on plan assets:

The Trust formed by the Company manages the investments of provident funds and gratuity fund. Interest income on plan assets is determined by multiplying the fair value of the plan assets by the discount rate stated in (g)(i) below both determined at the start of the annual reporting period.

The Company expects to fund R 45.05 crore (previous year: R 6.18 crore) towards its gratuity plan and R 67.68 crore (previous year: R 73.21 crore) towards its trust-managed provident fund plan during the year 2018-19.

iv) Attrition Rate:

(a) For post-retirement medical benefit plan and Company pension plan, the attrition rate varies from 1% to 12% (previous year: 2% to 8%) for various age groups.

(b) For gratuity plan the attrition rate varies from 1% to 11% (previous year: 1% to 6%) for various age groups.

v) The estimates of future salary increases, considered in actuarial valuation, take into account inflation, seniority, promotion and other relevant factors, such as supply and demand in the employment market.

vi) The interest payment obligation of trust-managed provident fund is assumed to be adequately covered by the interest income on long term investments of the fund. Any shortfall in the interest income over the interest obligation is recognized immediately in the Statement of Profit and Loss.

vii) The obligation of the Company under the post-retirement medical benefit plan is limited to the overall ceiling limits. At present, healthcare cost, as indicated in the principal actuarial assumption given above, has been assumed to increase at 5.00% p.a.

viii) (A) One percentage point change in actuarial assumptions would have the following effects on the defined benefit obligation of gratuity plan:

NOTE [6]

Disclosure pursuant to Ind AS 19 "Employee Benefits" (contd.)

h) Characteristics of defined benefit plans and associated risks:

1. Gratuity plan:

The Company operates gratuity plan through a trust wherein every employee is entitled to the benefit equivalent to fifteen days last salary drawn for each completed year of service. The same is payable on termination of service or retirement whichever is earlier. The benefit vests after five years of continuous service. The Company's scheme is more favorable as compared to the obligation under Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972. The defined benefit plan for gratuity of the Company is administered by separate gratuity funds that are legally separate from the Company. The trustees nominated by the Company are responsible for the administration of the plan. There are no minimum funding requirements of these plans. The funding of these plans are based on gratuity fund's actuarial measurement framework set out in the funding policies of the plan. These actuarial measurements are similar compared to the assumptions set out in (g) supra. Employees do not contribute to any of these plans.

Unfunded gratuity represents a small part of gratuity plan which is not material. Further, it includes amounts payable in respect of the Company's foreign operations which result in gratuity payable to employees engaged as per the local laws of country of operation.

2. Post-retirement medical care plan:

The Post-retirement medical benefit plan provides for reimbursement of health care costs to certain categories of employees post their retirement. The reimbursement is subject to an overall ceiling sanctioned based on cadre of the employee at the time of retirement. The plan is unfunded. Employees do not contribute to the plan.

3. Company's pension plan:

In addition to contribution to state-managed pension plan (EPS scheme), the Company operates a post retirement pension scheme, which is discretionary in nature for certain cadres of employees. The quantum of pension depends on the cadre of the employee at the time of retirement. The plan is unfunded. Employees do not contribute to the plan.

4. Trust managed provident fund plan:

The Company manages provident fund plan through a provident fund trust for its employees which is permitted under The Employees' Provident Fund and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952. The plan mandates contribution by employer at a fixed percentage of employee's salary. Employees also contribute to the plan at a fixed percentage of their salary as a minimum contribution and additional sums at their discretion. The plan guarantees interest at the rate notified by Employees' Provident Fund Organisation. The contribution by employer and employee together with interest are payable at the time of separation from service or retirement whichever is earlier. The benefit under this plan vests immediately on rendering of service.

The interest payment obligation of trust-managed provident fund is assumed to be adequately covered by the interest income on long term investments of the fund. Any shortfall in the interest income over the interest obligation is recognized immediately in the Statement of Profit and Loss as actuarial loss. Any loss/gain arising out of the investment risk and actuarial risk associated with the plan is also recognized as expense or income in the period in which such loss/ gain occurs.

All the above defined benefit plans expose the Company to general actuarial risks such as interest rate risk and market (investment) risk.
