Code

of

Conduct

Packages Limited has built a reputation for conducting its business with integrity, in accordance with high standards of ethical behavior and in compliance with the laws and regulations that govern our business. This reputation is among our most valuable assets and ultimately depends upon the individual actions of each of our employees all over the country.
Packages Limited code of conduct has been prepared to assist each of us in our efforts to not only maintain but enhance this reputation. It provides guidance for business conduct in a number of areas and references to more detailed corporate policies for further direction.

The Company carefully checks for compliance with the
Code by providing suitable information, prevention and control tools and ensuring transparency in all transactions and behaviours by taking corrective measures if and as required.
Packages Limited Code of Conduct applies to all affiliates, employees and others who act for us countrywide, within all sectors, regions, areas and functions. The adherence of all employees to high standards of integrity and ethical behaviour is mandatory and benefits all stakeholders including our customers, our communities, our shareholders and ourselves.

General Principles


Compliance with the law, regulations, statutory provisions, ethical integrity and fairness is a constant commitment and duty of all Packages employees and characterizes the conduct of the organization. •

The Company’s business and activities have to be carried out in a transparent, honest and fair way, in good faith and in full compliance. Any form of discrimination, corruption, forced or child labour is rejected. Particular attention is paid to the acknowledgment and safeguarding of the dignity, freedom and equality of human beings.



All employees, without any distinction or exception whatsoever , respect the principles and contents of the Code in their actions and behaviours while performing their functions according to their responsibilities, because compliance with the Code is fundamental for the quality of their working and professional performance. Relationships among employees, at all levels, must be characterized by honesty, fairness, cooperation, loyalty and mutual respect.



The belief that one is acting in favour or to the advantage of the Company can never , in any way, justify-not even in part–any behaviour that conflict with the principles and content of the Code.



The Packages Code of Conduct aims at guiding the “Packages team” with respect to standards of conduct expected in areas where improper activities could result in adverse consequences to the Company, harm its reputation or diminish its competitive advantage.



Every employee is expected to adhere to, and firmly inculcate in his/her everyday conduct, this mandatory framework; any contravention or deviation will be regarded as misconduct and may attract disciplinary action in accordance with the
Company service rules and relevant laws.

[formerly “Bulleh Shah Paper Mill (Private) Limited”]

Continuing Operations
In 2012, Continuing operations have achieved net sales of
Rs. 11,745 million against net sales of Rs. 11,386 million for the year 2011 representing sales growth of 3%. This growth has been marginal due to unfortunate fire incident that occurred towards the end of 2011 in Consumer
Products Division and adversely impacted operations of the Division during the first half of 2012. Moreover, the consumer industry has also shown stable business volumes in recent times due to inflationary pressures, energy situation and product variant rationalization.
Operations have generated EBITDA of Rs. 947 million during 2012 against Rs. 897 million of 2011 representing an increase of Rs. 50 million despite increase in energy costs by Rs. 149 million.
The Company has also recognized reversal of impairment amounting to Rs. 355 million and Rs. 6 million during
2012 on its investments held in IGI Insurance Limited and
IGI Investment Bank Limited respectively on the basis of recovery in recoverable amount.
Investment income has increased by Rs. 494 million during 2012 over 2011 values that is indicative of improved operational performance of the investee companies.
As part of its efforts to remain abreast with improved technological developments in the Packaging business, the Company has invested in a New Rotogravure Machine for its Flexible Packaging Business with a project cost of Rs. 326 million. The Machine has started commercial operations and is serving growing needs of the market. On the Folding Cartons side, the Company has also invested in a New Cutting & Creasing machine that has commenced commercial operations during 1Q 2013 subsequent to year-end. Packaging operations are fully geared up to meet enhanced customer requirements and are also actively pursuing cost control measures to improve bottom line results. Consumer Products Division has registered sales of
Rs. 2,064 million during 2012 as compared to Rs. 1,965 million of 2011 representing sales growth of 5% despite the unfortunate fire incident that occurred towards the end of 2011 and adversely impacted operations of the Division during 1H2012. The Company has actively pursued on recommencement of operations and all the critical machines including Facial Tissue machines, Toilet Roll machines,
Table Napkin machines, Paper Cup and N-Fold machines have been installed and have commenced commercial operations during second half of the year 2012. The
Company has also rigorously followed cost control measures within the Division and has managed to improve its operating earnings by Rs. 146 million in 2012. The
Company has also substantially regained its market share after re-commencement of own conversion operations through its rigorous marketing strategies towards the end of 2012.

The production statistics for the period under review along with its comparison with the corresponding period are as follows: 2012 2011

Discontinued Operations
Paper & Paperboard and Corrugated businesses have been recognized as Discontinued Operations with respect to Packages Limited as these will form part of the Joint
Venture. Discontinued Operations have achieved external sales of Rs. 8,709 million during the year 2012 as against
Rs. 7,602 million of 2011 representing 12% top line growth.
Operating results have also indicated improvement as
Discontinued Operations have sustained an Operational
Loss Before Tax of Rs. 999 million during 2012 as against
Operational Loss Before Tax of Rs. 2,417 million incurred during 2011. This improvement is primarily attributable to greater flexibility exercised after re-build of Paper
Machine (PM-6) in terms of production of high value added products and energy management initiatives. The
Company is still facing energy shortages as well as unfair competition in writing and printing paper segment from imported paper that is being sold at dumping prices in the local market. The Company is actively pursuing its applications for fixation of anti-dumping duty and Import
Trade Price (ITP) with National Tariff Commission (NTC) and the custom authorities to protect its products i.e. writing and printing paper against unfair competition offered by imported paper. To overcome the energy shortage, the Company is at an advanced stage of placing an order for a bio-mass based boiler.
Pursuant to recognition as Disposal Group, the
Management has recognized assets and liabilities of
Paper & Paperboard and Corrugated businesses as
‘Disposal group held for sale’ in terms of applicable financial reporting framework and re-measured the underlying assets and liabilities at the lower of carrying amount and fair value less costs to sell at the date of heldfor-sale classification and consequently has estimated a one-off non-cash charge of Rs. 3,002 million net of taxes in these financial statements for the year ended December
31, 2012.
The Management is fully confident that the operating results of Paper & Paperboard and Corrugated businesses will substantially improve through joint efforts of Stora
Enso and local team. The Joint Venture will provide paperboard and packaging products to key local and

General Meetings & Voting
Rights
Pursuant to section 158 of The Companies Ordinance,
1984, Packages Limited holds a General Meeting of shareholders at least once a year. Every shareholder has a right to attend the General Meeting. The notice of such meeting is sent to all the shareholders at least 21 days before the meeting and also advertised in at least one
English and one Urdu newspaper having circulation in
Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.
Shareholders having holding of at least 10% of voting rights may also apply to the board of directors to call for meeting of shareholders, and if board does not take action on such application within 21 days, the shareholders may themselves call the meeting.
All ordinary shares issued by the Company carry equal voting rights. Generally, matters at the general meetings are decided by a show of hands in the first instance.
Voting by show of hands operates on the principle of “One
Member-One Vote”. If majority of shareholders raise their hands in favor of a particular resolution, it is taken as passed, unless a poll is demanded.
Since the fundamental voting principle in the Company is “One Share-One Vote”, voting takes place by a poll, if demanded. On a poll being taken, the decision arrived by poll is final, overruling any decision taken on a show of hands. Proxies

Association of the Company, every shareholder of the
Company who is entitled to attend and vote at a general meeting of the Company can appoint another person as his/her proxy to attend and vote instead of him/her. Every notice calling a general meeting of the Company contains a statement that a shareholder entitled to attend and vote is entitled to appoint a proxy. A proxy may not be a member of the Company.
The instrument appointing a proxy (duly signed by the shareholder appointing that proxy) should be deposited at the office of the Company not less than forty-eight hours before the meeting.

Notes to and Forming Part of the Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2012
1.

Legal status and nature of business

Packages Limited (‘The Company’) is a public limited Company incorporated in Pakistan and is listed on Karachi,
Lahore and Islamabad Stock Exchanges. It is principally engaged in the manufacture and sale of paper, paperboard, packaging materials and tissue products.

2.
2.1

2.2

2.2.1

76

The Company has entered into 50/50 Joint Venture Agreement (the “JV Agreement”) on September 17, 2012 with
‘Stora Enso OYJ Group’ (‘Stora Enso’) of Finland in its 100% wholly owned subsidiary Bulleh Shah Packaging
(Private) Limited [formerly Bulleh Shah Paper Mill (Private) Limited] (‘BSPL’). The Joint Venture will include
Paper & Paperboard and Corrugated business operations at Kasur and Karachi and will involve initial equity participation of Stora Enso of 35% by way of subscription of right shares with a commitment to increase the shareholding to 50% at a later stage subject to certain conditions being met. The agreed value for 100% of the Joint
Venture Company is USD 107.5 million on a cash and debt free basis with additional equity to be subscribed by
Stora Enso through right shares in the Joint Venture Company of USD 17.5 million, based on the financial results of second half of 2012 and first half of 2013. Packages Limited shall continue to hold minimum 50% ownership and future profits of the Joint Venture.
Moreover, the Company also decided to close down its Paper and Paperboard operations in Lahore, in addition to the above mentioned transaction, during the year.
As a result, the Company’s operations have been divided into Continuing and Discontinued operations in accordance with the requirements of International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 5, ‘Non-current assets held for sale and Discontinued operations’. Paper & Paperboard and Corrugated businesses have been classified as Discontinued operations because these will form part of the Joint Venture. Continuing operations will include
Folding Cartons, Flexible Packaging and Consumer Products businesses.
Upon subscription by Stora Enso in BSPL, the Company shall derecognise its investment in BSPL owing to loss of control and recognise an investment in jointly controlled entity, with Stora Enso as the joint venture partner.
In view of the above, assets and corresponding liabilities as are envisaged to be transferred to BSPL are classified as held for sale under IFRS 5 as reflected in note 15 of these financial statements. These assets and liabilities have been measured at lower of their respective carrying values and fair values less cost to sell and the resultant estimated charge has been recognised in the profit and loss account.
The Paper and Paperboard operations in Lahore have also been classified as a Discontinued operation as reflected in note 15 of these financial statements, in accordance with the requirements of IFRS 5. This has not been classified as held for sale as it does not meet the criteria for being classified as held for sale under IFRS 5.
The figures of the prior period have been represented in accordance with the requirements of IFRS 5, wherever relevant. Basis of preparation
These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of The Companies Ordinance,
1984 (the Ordinance) and the approved accounting standards as applicable in Pakistan. Approved accounting standards comprise of such International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) issued by the International
Accounting Standards Board and Islamic Financial Accounting Standards (IFAS) issued by the Institute of Chartered
Accountants of Pakistan as are notified under The Companies Ordinance, 1984, provisions of and directives issued under The Companies Ordinance, 1984. Wherever the requirements of The Companies Ordinance, 1984 or directives issued by Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan differ with the requirements of IFRS or IFAS, the requirements of The Companies Ordinance, 1984 or the requirements of the said directives prevail.
Initial application of standards, amendments or an interpretation to existing standards
The following amendments to existing standards have been published that are applicable to the Company’s financial statements covering annual periods, beginning on or after the following dates:
Amendments to published standards effective in current year
New and amended standards, and interpretations mandatory for the first time for the financial year beginning
January 1, 2012:
IFRS 1 (Amendment), ‘First time adoption’, on fixed dates and hyperinflation. These are applicable on accounting

Annual Report of Packages Limited 2012

periods beginning on or after July 1, 2011. These amendments include two changes to IFRS 1, ‘First time adoption’ of IFRS. The first replaces references to a fixed date of January 1, 2004 with ‘the date of transition to IFRSs’, thus eliminating the need for companies adopting IFRSs for the first time to restate derecognition transactions that occurred before the date of transition to IFRSs. The second amendment provides guidance on how an entity should resume presenting financial statements in accordance with IFRSs after a period when the entity was unable to comply with IFRSs because its functional currency was subject to severe hyperinflation. The application of this amendment has no material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

2.2.2

IFRS 7 (Amendments), ‘Financial instruments: Disclosures’ on transfers of assets. These are applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after July 1, 2011. These amendments arise from the IASB’s review of offbalance sheet activities. The amendments shall promote transparency in the reporting of transfer transactions and improve users’ understanding of the risk exposures relating to transfers of financial assets and the effect of those risks on an entity’s financial position, particularly those involving securitisation of financial assets. Earlier application is permitted. The application of these amendments have no material impact on the Company’s financial statements.
IAS 12 (Amendments), ‘Income taxes’, on deferred tax. These are applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2012. IAS 12, ‘Income taxes’, currently requires an entity to measure the deferred tax relating to an asset depending on whether the entity expects to recover the carrying amount of the asset through use or sale.
It can be difficult and subjective to assess whether recovery shall be through use or through sale when the asset is measured using the fair value model in IAS 40, ‘Investment property’. This amendment therefore introduces an exception to the existing principle for the measurement of deferred tax assets or liabilities arising on investment property measured at fair value. As a result of the amendments, SIC 21, ‘Income taxes - recovery of revalued non-depreciable assets’, shall no longer apply to investment properties carried at fair value. The amendments also incorporate into IAS 12 the remaining guidance previously contained in SIC 21, which is withdrawn. The application of these amendments have no material impact on the Company’s financial statements.
Standards, amendments and interpretations to existing standards that are not yet effective and have not been early adopted by the Company
The following amendments and interpretations to existing standards have been published and are mandatory for the Company’s accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013 or later periods, but the Company has not early adopted them:
Annual improvements to IFRSs 2011 are applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1,
2013. This set of amendments includes changes to five standards: IFRS 1, ‘First time adoption’, IAS 1, ‘Financial statement presentation’, IAS 16, ‘Property, plant and equipment’, IAS 32, ‘Financial instruments; Presentation’ and IAS 34, ‘Interim financial reporting’. The application of these amendments have no material impact on the
Company’s financial statements.
IFRS 1 (Amendments), ‘First time adoption’, on Government loans is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. The amendment addresses how a first-time adopter would account for a Government loan with a below-market rate of interest when transitioning to IFRS. It also adds an exception to the retrospective application of IFRS, which provides the same relief to first-time adopters granted to existing preparers of IFRS financial statements when the requirement was incorporated into IAS 20 in 2008. The Company shall apply these amendments from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.
IFRS 7 (Amendments), ‘Financial instruments: Disclosures’, on offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. The amendment includes new disclosures to facilitate comparison between those entities that prepare IFRS financial statements to those that prepare financial statements in accordance with US GAAP. The Company shall apply these amendments from January 1,
2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.
IFRS 9 - ‘Financial instruments’ - classification and measurement. This is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2015. This standard on classification and measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities will replace IAS 39, ‘Financial instruments: Recognition and measurement’. IFRS 9 has two measurement categories: amortised cost and fair value. All equity instruments are measured at fair value. A debt instrument is measured at amortised cost only if the entity is holding it to collect contractual cash flows and the cash flows represent principal and interest. For liabilities, the standard retains most of the IAS 39 requirements.
These include amortised-cost accounting for most financial liabilities, with bifurcation of embedded derivatives.

77

The main change is that, in cases where the fair value option is taken for financial liabilities, the part of a fair value change due to an entity’s own credit risk is recorded in other comprehensive income rather than the income statement, unless this creates an accounting mismatch. This change will mainly affect financial institutions. The
Company shall apply this standard from January 1, 2015 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements. IFRS 11 - ‘Joint arrangements’ is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. IFRS
11 is a more realistic reflection of joint arrangements by focusing on the rights and obligations of the parties to the arrangement rather than its legal form. There are two types of joint arrangement: joint operations and joint ventures. Joint operations arise where a joint operator has rights to the assets and obligations relating to the arrangement and therefore accounts for its share of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses. Joint ventures arise where the joint operator has rights to the net assets of the arrangement and therefore equity accounts for its interest. Proportional consolidation of joint ventures is no longer allowed. The Company shall apply this standard from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.

IFRS 12 - ‘Disclosures of interests in other entities’. This is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2013. This standard includes the disclosure requirements for all forms of interests in other entities, including joint arrangements, associates, special purpose vehicles and other off-balance sheet vehicles. The
Company shall apply this standard from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.

IFRS 13 - ‘Fair value measurement’. This is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013.
This standard aims to improve consistency and reduce complexity by providing a precise definition of fair value and a single source of fair value measurement and disclosure requirements for use across IFRSs. The requirements, which are largely aligned between IFRSs and US GAAP, do not extend the use of fair value accounting but provide guidance on how it should be applied where its use is already required or permitted by other standards within
IFRSs or US GAAP. The Company shall apply this standard from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.

IAS 1 (Amendments), ‘Financial statement presentation’ regarding other comprehensive income. This is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after July 1, 2012. The main change resulting from these amendments is a requirement for entities to group items presented in other comprehensive income (OCI) on the basis of whether they are potentially recycled to profit or loss (re-classification adjustments). The amendments do not address which items are presented in OCI. The Company shall apply these amendments from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.

IAS 19 (Amendments), ‘Employee benefits’ is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1,
2013. These amendments shall eliminate the corridor approach and calculate finance costs on a net funding basis.
The Company shall apply these amendments from January 1, 2013 and its impact on retained earnings shall be
Rs. 259.306 million due to recognition of current unrealised actuarial losses on its defined benefit plans.

IAS 27 (Revised 2011), ‘Separate financial statements’ is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. It includes the provisions on separate financial statements that are left after the control provisions of IAS 27 which have been included in the new IFRS 10. The Company shall apply the revised standard from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.

IAS 28 (Revised 2011), ‘Associates and joint ventures’ is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2013. It includes the requirements for associates and joint ventures that have to be equity accounted following the issue of IFRS 11. The Company shall apply the revised standard from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.

IAS 32 (Amendments), ‘Financial instruments: Presentation’, on offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2014. These amendments update the application guidance in IAS 32, ‘Financial instruments: Presentation’, to clarify some of the requirements for offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities on the balance sheet. The Company shall apply these amendments from January 1, 2014 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.

Basis of measurement

3.1

These financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention except for revaluation of certain financial instruments at fair value and recognition of certain employee retirement benefits at present value. 3.2

The Company’s significant accounting policies are stated in note 4. Not all of these significant policies require the management to make difficult, subjective or complex judgments or estimates. The following is intended to provide an understanding of the policies the management considers critical because of their complexity, judgment and estimation involved in their application and their impact on these financial statements. Judgments and estimates are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. These judgments involve assumptions or estimates in respect of future events and the actual results may differ from these estimates. The areas involving a higher degree of judgments or complexity or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the financial statements are as follows:

i) ii) iii) iv) v)

4.

Significant accounting policies

The significant accounting policies adopted in the preparation of these financial statements are set out below.
These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless otherwise stated.

Estimated useful lives of property, plant and equipment - note 4.2
Provision for employees’ retirement benefits - note 4.7 & 9
Loss recognised on the re-measurement of assets of disposal group - note 15.2
Recoverable amount of certain investments in equity instruments - note 20.2
Provision for taxation - note 37

4.1 Taxation Current

4.2

Provision of current tax is based on the taxable income for the year determined in accordance with the prevailing law for taxation of income. The charge for current tax is calculated using prevailing tax rates or tax rates expected to apply to the profit for the year, if enacted. The charge for current tax also includes adjustments, where considered necessary, to provision for tax made in previous years arising from assessments framed during the year for such years. Deferred
Deferred tax is accounted for using the balance sheet liability method in respect of all temporary differences arising from differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities in the financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of the taxable profit. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits shall be available against which the deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and tax credits can be utilised.
Deferred tax is calculated at the rates that are expected to apply to the period when the differences reverse based on tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the balance sheet date. Deferred tax is charged or credited in the profit and loss account, except in the case of items credited or charged to equity in which case it is included in equity.
Property, plant and equipment
Property, plant and equipment, except freehold land, are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and any identified impairment loss. Freehold land is stated at cost less any identified impairment loss. Cost in relation to certain plant and machinery signifies historical cost, gains and losses transferred from equity on qualifying cash flow hedges as referred to in note 4.17 and borrowing costs as referred to in note 4.20.

79

Depreciation on all property, plant and equipment is charged to profit on the straight-line method so as to write off the depreciable amount of an asset over its estimated useful life at the following annual rates:
Buildings
Plant and machinery
Other equipments
Furniture and fixtures
Vehicles

6.25%
10%

20%

to to to to 20%
33.33%

20%

The assets’ residual values and useful lives are reviewed, at each financial year end, and adjusted if impact on depreciation is significant. The Company’s estimate of the residual value of its property, plant and equipment as at December 31, 2012 has not required any adjustment as its impact is considered insignificant.
Depreciation on additions to property, plant and equipment is charged from the month in which an asset is acquired or capitalised while no depreciation is charged for the month in which the asset is disposed off.
The Company assesses at each balance sheet date whether there is any indication that property, plant and equipment may be impaired. If such indication exists, the carrying amounts of such assets are reviewed to assess whether they are recorded in excess of their recoverable amount. Where carrying amounts exceed the respective recoverable amount, assets are written down to their recoverable amounts and the resulting impairment loss is recognised in profit and loss account. The recoverable amount is the higher of an asset’s fair value less costs to sell and value in use. Where an impairment loss is recognised, the depreciation charge is adjusted in the future periods to allocate the asset’s revised carrying amount over its estimated useful life.
Subsequent costs are included in the asset’s carrying amount or recognised as a separate asset, as appropriate, only when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item shall flow to the Company and the cost of the item can be measured reliably. All other repair and maintenance costs are charged to profit and loss account during the period in which they are incurred.

The gain or loss on disposal or retirement of an asset represented by the difference between the sale proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset is recognised as an income or expense.

Capital work-in-progress is stated at cost less any identified impairment loss.

4.3

Investment property

Property not held for own use or for sale in the ordinary course of business is classified as investment property.
The investment property of the Company comprises land and buildings and is valued using the cost method i.e. at cost less any accumulated depreciation and any identified impairment loss.

80

Depreciation on buildings is charged to profit on the straight line method so as to write off the depreciable amount of building over its estimated useful life at the rates ranging from 3.33% to 6.67% per annum. Depreciation on additions to investment property is charged from the month in which a property is acquired or capitalised while no depreciation is charged for the month in which the property is disposed off.
The assets’ residual values and useful lives are reviewed, at each financial year end, and adjusted if impact on depreciation is significant. The Company’s estimate of the residual value of its investment property as at December
31, 2012 has not required any adjustment as its impact is considered insignificant.
The Company assesses at each balance sheet date whether there is any indication that investment property may be impaired. If such indication exists, the carrying amounts of such assets are reviewed to assess whether they are recorded in excess of their recoverable amount. Where carrying amounts exceed the respective recoverable amount, assets are written down to their recoverable amount and the resulting impairment loss is recognised in profit and loss account. The recoverable amount is the higher of an asset’s fair value less costs to sell and value in use. Where an impairment loss is recognised, the depreciation charge is adjusted in the future periods to allocate the asset’s revised carrying amount over its estimated useful life.
The gain or loss on disposal or retirement of an asset represented by the difference between the sale proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset is recognised as an income or expense.

Annual Report of Packages Limited 2012

4.4

Intangible assets

Expenditure incurred to acquire computer software and SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System are capitalised as intangible assets and stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and any identified impairment loss. Intangible assets are amortised using the straight line method over a period of three to five years.

Development costs are recognised as intangible assets when the following criteria are met:
- it is technically feasible to complete the intangible asset so that it will be available for use;
- management intends to complete the intangible asset and use or sell it;
- there is an ability to use or sell the intangible asset;
- it can be demonstrated how the intangible asset will generate probable future economic benefits;
- adequate technical, financial and other resources to complete the development and to use or sell the intangible asset are available; and
- the expenditure attributable to the intangible asset during its development can be reliably measured.
Other development expenditures that do not meet these criteria are recognised as an expense as incurred.
Development costs previously recognised as an expense are not recognised as an asset in a subsequent period.
Amortisation on additions to intangible assets is charged from the month in which an asset is acquired or capitalised while no amortisation is charged for the month in which the asset is disposed off.
The Company assesses at each balance sheet date whether there is any indication that intangible assets may be impaired. If such indication exists, the carrying amounts of such assets are reviewed to assess whether they are recorded in excess of their recoverable amount. Where carrying amounts exceed the respective recoverable amount, assets are written down to their recoverable amounts and the resulting impairment loss is recognised in profit and loss account. The recoverable amount is the higher of an asset’s fair value less costs to sell and value in use. Where an impairment loss is recognised, the amortisation charge is adjusted in the future periods to allocate the asset’s revised carrying amount over its estimated useful life.

The Company is the lessee:

Finance leases

Leases where the Company has substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership are classified as finance leases. Assets subject to finance lease are initially recognised at the lower of present value of minimum lease payments under the lease agreements and the fair value of the assets. Subsequently these assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and any identified impairment loss.

The related rental obligations, net of finance charges, are included in liabilities against assets subject to finance lease. The liabilities are classified as current and long-term depending upon the timing of the payment.

Each lease payment is allocated between the liability and finance charges so as to achieve a constant rate on the balance outstanding. The interest element of the rental is charged to profit over the lease term.

Assets acquired under a finance lease are depreciated over the useful life of the asset on a straight-line method at the rates given in note 4.2. Depreciation of leased assets is charged to profit and loss account.

Depreciation on additions to leased assets is charged from the month in which an asset is acquired while no depreciation is charged for the month in which the asset is disposed off.

Operating leases

Leases including Ijarah financing where a significant portion of the risks and rewards of ownership are retained by the lessor are classified as operating leases. Payments made under operating leases (net of any incentives received from the lessor) are charged to profit on a straight-line basis over the lease / Ijarah term unless another systematic basis is representative of the time pattern of the Company’s benefit.

The Company is the lessor:

Operating leases

Assets leased out under operating leases are included in investment property as referred to in note 18. They are depreciated over their expected useful lives on a basis consistent with similar owned property, plant and equipment. Rental income (net of any incentives given to lessees) is recognised on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

4.6 Investments

Investments intended to be held for less than twelve months from the balance sheet date or to be sold to raise operating capital, are included in current assets, all other investments are classified as non-current. Management determines the appropriate classification of its investments at the time of the purchase and re-evaluates such designation on a regular basis.
Investments in equity instruments of subsidiaries and associates

Investments in subsidiaries and associates where the Company has significant influence are measured at cost in the Company’s financial statements. Cost in relation to investments made in foreign currency is determined by translating the consideration paid in foreign currency into Pak Rupees at exchange rates prevailing on the date of transactions. The Company is required to issue consolidated financial statements along with its separate financial statements, in accordance with the requirements of IAS 27 ‘Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements’. Investments in associates, in the consolidated financial statements, are being accounted for using the equity method.

82

At each balance sheet date, the Company reviews the carrying amounts of the investments in subsidiaries and associates to assess whether there is any indication that such investments have suffered an impairment loss. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment loss, if any. In making an estimate of recoverable amount of these investments, the management considers future stream of cash flows and an estimate of the terminal value of these investments. Impairment losses are recognised as expense in the profit and loss account.
Investments in subsidiaries and associates, that suffered an impairment, are reviewed for possible reversal of impairment at each reporting date. Impairment losses recognised in the profit and loss account on investments in subsidiaries and associates are reversed through the profit and loss account.
Other investments
The other investments made by the Company are classified for the purpose of measurement into the following categories: Held to maturity
Investments with fixed maturity that the management has the intent and ability to hold to maturity are classified as held to maturity and are initially measured at cost and at subsequent reporting dates measured at amortised cost using the effective yield method. vailable for sale
A
The financial assets including investments in associated undertakings where the Company does not have significant influence that are intended to be held for an indefinite period of time or may be sold in response to the need for liquidity are classified as available for sale.
Investments classified as available for sale are initially measured at cost, being the fair value of consideration given. At subsequent reporting dates, these investments are remeasured at fair value (quoted market price), unless fair value cannot be reliably measured. The investments for which a quoted market price is not available, are measured at cost as it is not possible to apply any other valuation methodology. Unrealised gains and losses arising from the changes in the fair value are included in fair value reserves in the period in which they arise.
All purchases and sales of investments are recognised on the trade date which is the date that the Company commits to purchase or sell the investment. Cost of purchase includes transaction cost.

Annual Report of Packages Limited 2012

4.7

At each balance sheet date, the Company reviews the carrying amounts of the investments to assess whether there is any indication that such investments have suffered an impairment loss. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment loss, if any. Impairment losses are recognised as expense in the profit and loss account. In respect of ‘available for sale’ financial assets, cumulative impairment loss less any impairment loss on that financial asset previously recognised in profit and loss account, is removed from equity and recognised in the profit and loss account. Impairment losses recognised in the profit and loss account on equity instruments are not reversed through the profit and loss account.
Employee retirement benefits

4.7.1

The main features of the schemes operated by the Company for its employees are as follows:

(a)

All the executive staff participates in an approved funded defined benefit pension plan. In addition, there is an approved funded defined benefit gratuity plan for all employees. Monthly contributions are made to these funds on the basis of actuarial recommendation at the rate of 20 percent per annum of basic salaries for pension and 4.50 percent per annum of basic salaries for gratuity. The latest actuarial valuations for the pension and gratuity schemes were carried out as at December 31, 2012. The actual returns on plan assets during the year were
Rs. 160.162 million and Rs. 65.516 million for the pension and gratuity funds respectively. The actual returns on plan assets represent the difference between the fair value of plan assets at beginning of the year and end of the year after adjustments for contributions made by the Company as reduced by benefits paid during the year.

Defined benefit plans

The future contribution rates of these plans include allowances for deficit and surplus. Projected unit credit method, using the following significant assumptions, is used for valuation of these schemes:

Discount rate 11 percent per annum; Expected rate of increase in salary level 9 percent per annum; Expected mortality rate EFU 61-66 mortality table; Expected rate of return 12.5 percent per annum; and Future pension increase 2.5 percent per annum.

Plan assets include long-term Government bonds, equity instruments of listed companies and term deposits with banks. Return on Government bonds and debt is at fixed rates, however, due to increased volatility of share prices in recent months, there is no clear indication of return on equity shares, therefore, it has been assumed that the yield on equity shares would match the return on debt.

The Company is expected to contribute Rs. 30.410 million to the pension fund and Rs. 12.422 million to the gratuity fund in the next financial year.

The Company’s policy with regard to actuarial gains / losses is to follow minimum recommended approach under
IAS 19 - ‘Employee benefits’.

In a meeting held on December 26, 2012 the board of trustees of the pension fund have decided to convert the existing defined benefit plan to defined contribution plan for all its employees active as on December 31, 2012 with effect from January 1, 2013 subject to such regulatory approvals as are necessary in the circumstances.
The proposed scheme has been subsequently approved by the taxation authorities on February 22, 2013 and respective employees consent with the proposed scheme has also been obtained in the subsequent period. This conversion has been accounted for as a curtailment under IAS 19 - ‘Employee benefits’.

The Joint Venture agreement with Stora Enso requires all accumulated balances due and payable to the employees in respect of pension and gratuity maintained with Packages Limited as a consequence of cessation of their employment with Packages Limited to be transferred by Packages Limited to BSPL or directly paid to the employees. This has been treated as a settlement as per IAS 19 - ‘Employee benefits’. (b)
Accumulating compensated absences

The Company provides for accumulating compensated absences when the employees render services that increase their entitlement to future compensated absences. The executives and workers are entitled to earned annual and medical leaves on the basis of their service with the Company. The annual leaves can be encashed at the time the employee leaves the Company on the basis of the gross salary while no encashment is available for medical leaves to executives.

83

4.7.2

4.7.3

4.8

The Company uses the valuation performed by an independent actuary as the present value of its accumulating compensated absences.
Projected unit credit method, using the following significant assumptions, has been used for valuation of accumulating compensated absences:
Discount rate 11 percent per annum;
Expected rate of increase in salary level 9 percent per annum; and
Expected mortality rate EFU 61-66 mortality table.
Defined contribution plan
There is an approved contributory provident fund for all employees. Equal monthly contributions are made by the
Company and the employees to the fund.
Retirement benefits are payable to staff on completion of prescribed qualifying period of service under these schemes. Pension plan is a multi-employer plan formed by the Company in collaboration with Tri Pack Films Limited and DIC
Pakistan Limited. Similarly, Gratuity plan is also a multi-employer plan formed by the Company in collaboration with DIC Pakistan Limited. Contribution by the companies is based on the respective number of employees of each company. Packages reports its proportionate share of the plan’s commitments, managed assets and costs, in accordance with guidance provided by IAS 19 - Employee Benefits, regarding defined benefit plans, based on the number of its employees participating in the plans.
Stores and spares

Stores and spares are valued at moving average cost, while items considered obsolete are carried at nil value.
Items in transit are valued at cost comprising invoice value plus other charges paid thereon.

Provision is made in the financial statements for obsolete and slow moving stores and spares based on management estimate.

4.9 Stock-in-trade

4.10

Stock of raw materials, except for those in transit, work-in-process and finished goods are valued principally at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost of raw materials is determined using the weighted average cost method. Cost of work-in-process and finished goods comprises direct production costs such as raw materials, consumables and labour as well as production overheads such as employee wages, depreciation, maintenance, etc. The production overheads are measured based on a standard cost method, which is reviewed regularly to ensure relevant measures of utilisation, production lead time etc.
Materials in transit are stated at cost comprising invoice value plus other charges paid thereon.
If the expected sales price less completion costs and costs to execute sales (net realisable value) is lower than the carrying amount, a write-down is recognised for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds its net realisable value. Provision is made in the financial statements for obsolete and slow moving stock in trade based on management estimate.
Financial instruments

Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised at the time when the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument and derecognised when the Company loses control of contractual rights that comprise the financial assets and in the case of financial liabilities when the obligation specified in the contract is discharged, cancelled or expired. Any gain or loss on derecognition of financial assets and financial liabilities is included in the profit and loss account for the year.

Financial instruments carried on the balance sheet include loans, investments, trade and other debts, cash and bank balances, borrowings, trade and other payables, accrued expenses and unclaimed dividends. All financial assets and liabilities are initially measured at cost, which is the fair value of consideration given and received respectively. These financial assets and liabilities are subsequently measured at fair value or cost as the case may be. The particular recognition methods adopted are disclosed in the individual policy statements associated with each item.

84

Annual Report of Packages Limited 2012

4.11

Offsetting of financial assets and liabilities

Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount is reported in the financial statements only when there is a legally enforceable right to set off the recognised amount and the Company intends either to settle on a net basis or to realise the assets and to settle the liabilities simultaneously.

4.12

4.13

4.14

Trade debts
Trade debts are recognised initially at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less an estimate made for doubtful debts based on a review of all outstanding amounts at the year end. Bad debts are written off when identified.
Cash and cash equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents are carried in the balance sheet at cost. For the purpose of cash flow statement, cash and cash equivalents comprise cash in hand, demand deposits, other short-term highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of change in value and finances under mark up arrangements. In the balance sheet, finances under mark up arrangements are included in current liabilities.
Non-current assets held-for-sale
Non-current assets are classified as assets held-for-sale when their carrying amount is to be recovered principally through a sale transaction and a sale is considered highly probable. They are stated at the lower of carrying amount and fair value less cost to sell.

4.15 Borrowings

Borrowings are initially recorded at the proceeds received. In subsequent periods, borrowings are stated at amortised cost using the effective yield method. Finance costs are accounted for on an accrual basis and are shown as accrued finance cost to the extent of the amount remaining unpaid.

4.16

Trade and other payables

Liabilities for creditors and other amounts payable are recognised at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method.

4.17

4.18

Derivative financial instruments
These are initially recorded at cost on the date a derivative contract is entered into and are remeasured to fair value at subsequent reporting dates. The method of recognising the resulting gain or loss depends on whether the derivative is designated as a hedging instrument, and if so, the nature of the item being hedged. The Company designates certain derivatives as cash flow hedges.
The Company documents at the inception of the transaction the relationship between the hedging instruments and hedged items, as well as its risk management objective and strategy for undertaking various hedge transactions.
The Company also documents its assessment, both at hedge inception and on an ongoing basis, of whether the derivatives that are used in hedging transactions are highly effective in offsetting changes in cash flow of hedged items. The effective portion of changes in the fair value of derivatives that are designated and qualify as cash flow hedges are recognised in statement of other comprehensive income. The gain or loss relating to the ineffective portion is recognised immediately in the profit and loss account.
Amounts accumulated in equity are recognised in profit and loss account in the periods when the hedged item shall effect profit or loss. However, when the forecast hedged transaction results in the recognition of a nonfinancial asset or a liability, the gain and losses previously deferred in equity are transferred from equity and included in the initial measurement of the cost of the asset or liability.
Revenue recognition
Revenue is recognised on despatch of goods or on the performance of services.
Return on deposits is accrued on a time proportion basis by reference to the principal outstanding and the applicable rate of return.

85

4.19

4.20

Dividend income and entitlement of bonus shares are recognised when right to receive such dividend and bonus shares is established.
Foreign currency transactions and translation
Foreign currency transactions are translated into Pak Rupees using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions. All monetary assets and liabilities in foreign currencies are translated into Pak Rupees at the rates of exchange prevailing at the balance sheet date. Foreign exchange gains and losses on translation are recognised in the profit and loss account. All non-monetary items are translated into Pak Rupees at exchange rates prevailing on the date of transaction or on the date when fair values are determined.
The financial statements are presented in Pak Rupees, which is the Company’s functional and presentation currency. Borrowing costs
Mark up, interest and other charges on borrowings are capitalised up to the date of commissioning of the related property, plant and equipment acquired out of the proceeds of such borrowings. All other mark up, interest and other charges are charged to profit and loss account.

4.21 Dividend

4.22

Dividend distribution to the Company’s shareholders is recognised as a liability in the period in which the dividends are approved.
Compound financial instruments
Compound financial instruments issued by the Company represent preference shares / convertible stock that can be converted into ordinary shares or can be settled in cash.
The liability component of a compound financial instrument is recognised initially at the fair value of a similar liability that does not have an equity conversion option. The equity component is recognised initially at the difference between the fair value of the compound financial instrument as a whole and the fair value of the liability component. Any directly attributable transaction costs are allocated to the liability and equity components in proportion to their initial carrying amounts.
Subsequent to initial recognition, the liability component of a compound financial instrument is measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. The equity component of a compound financial instrument is not re-measured subsequent to initial recognition except on conversion or expiry.

4.23 Provisions

86

Provisions for environmental restoration, restructuring costs and legal claims are recognised when:
(i) the Company has a present legal or constructive obligation as a result of past events;
(ii) it is probable that an outflow of resources shall be required to settle the obligation; and
(iii) the amount has been reliably estimated.
Restructuring provisions include lease termination penalties and employee termination payments and such other costs that are necessarily entailed by the restructuring and not associated with on going activities of the
Company. Provisions are not recognised for future operating losses.
Where there are a number of similar obligations, the likelihood that an outflow shall be required in settlement is determined by considering the class of obligations as a whole. A provision is recognised even if the likelihood of an outflow with respect to any one item included in the same class of obligations may be small.
Provisions are measured at the present value of the expenditures expected to be required to settle the obligation using a pre-tax rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the obligation. The increase in the provision due to passage of time is recognised as interest expense.

In 1987, the Income Tax Officer (ITO) re-opened the Company’s assessments for the accounting years ended
December 31, 1983 and 1984 disallowing primarily tax credit given to the Company under section 107 of the
Income Tax Ordinance, 1979. The tax credit amounting to Rs. 36.013 million on its capital expenditure for these years was refused on the grounds that such expenditure represented an extension of the Company’s undertaking which did not qualify for tax credit under this section in view of the Company’s location. The assessments for these years were revised by the ITO on these grounds and taxes reassessed were adjusted against certain sales tax refunds and the tax credits previously determined by the ITO and set off against the assessments framed for these years.
The Company had filed an appeal against the revised orders of the ITO before the Commissioner of Income Tax
(Appeals) [CIT(A)], Karachi. CIT(A) in his order issued in 1988, held the assessments reframed by the ITO for the years 1983 and 1984 presently to be void and of no legal effect. The ITO has filed an appeal against the CIT(A)’s order with the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT). The ITAT has in its order issued in 1996 maintained the order of CIT(A). The assessing officer after the receipt of the appellate order passed by CIT(A), had issued notices under section 65 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 1979 and the Company had filed a writ petition against the aforesaid notices with the High Court of Sindh, the outcome of which is still pending.
The amount recoverable Rs. 36.013 million represents the additional taxes paid as a result of the disallowance of the tax credits on reframing of the assessments.

Financial risk management

45.1

Financial risk factors

(a)

The Company’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks: market risk (including currency risk, fair value interest rate risk, cash flow interest rate risk and price risk), credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company’s overall risk management programme focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and seeks to minimise potential adverse effects on the Company’s financial performance. The Company uses derivative financial instruments to hedge certain risk exposures. Risk management is carried out by the Company’s finance department under policies approved by the Board of
Directors. The Company’s finance department evaluates and hedges financial risks. The board provides written principles for overall risk management, as well as written policies covering specific areas, such as foreign exchange risk, interest rate risk, credit risk, use of derivative financial instruments and non-derivative financial instruments, and investment of excess liquidity. Market risk

(i)

Foreign exchange risk
Foreign exchange risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument shall fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates. The Company operates internationally and is exposed to foreign exchange risk arising from various currency exposures, primarily with respect to the US dollar and the Euro. Foreign exchange risk arises from future commercial transactions and recognised assets and liabilities and net investments in foreign operations. At December 31, 2012, if the Rupee had weakened / strengthened by 10% against the US dollar with all other variables held constant, post-tax loss for the year would have been Rs. 9.497 million higher / lower (2011:
Rs. 15.286 million higher / lower) mainly as a result of foreign exchange losses / gains on translation of US dollardenominated financial assets and liabilities. At December 31, 2012, if the Rupee had weakened / strengthened by 10% against the Euro with all other variables held constant, post-tax loss for the year would have been Rs.10.098 million (2011: Rs. 6.497 million) higher / lower, mainly as a result of foreign exchange losses / gains on translation of Euro-denominated financial assets and liabilities. 115

(ii)

Price risk
The Company is exposed to equity securities price risk because of investments held by the Company and classified as available for sale. The Company is not exposed to commodity price risk. To manage its price risk arising from investments in equity securities, the Company diversifies its portfolio. Diversification of the portfolio is done in accordance with the limits set by the Board of Directors.

The Company’s investments in equity of other entities that are publicly traded are included in all of the following three stock exchanges, Karachi Stock Exchange, Lahore Stock Exchange and Islamabad Stock Exchange. The table below summarises the impact of increases / decreases of the KSE-100 index on the Company’s post-tax profit for the year and on equity. The analysis is based on the assumption that the KSE had increased / decreased by 10% with all other variables held constant and all the Company’s equity instruments moved according to the historical correlation with the index: Impact on

Post-tax profit for the year would increase / decrease as a result of gains / losses on equity securities classified as at fair value through profit or loss account. Other components of equity would increase / decrease as a result of gains / losses on equity securities classified as available for sale.

(iii)

Cash flow and fair value interest rate risk

(b)

As the Company has no significant floating interest rate assets, the Company’s income is substantially independent of changes in market interest rates. The Company’s interest rate risk arises from short-term and long-term borrowings. These borrowings issued at variable rates expose the Company to cash flow interest rate risk. The Company analyses its interest rate exposure on a dynamic basis. Various scenarios are simulated taking into consideration refinancing, renewal of existing positions, alternative financing and hedging. Based on these scenarios, the Company calculates the impact on profit and loss of a defined interest rate shift. The scenarios are run only for liabilities that represent the major interest-bearing positions. At December 31, 2012, if interest rates on floating rate borrowings had been 1% higher / lower with all other variables held constant, post-tax loss for the year would have been Rs. 43.908 million (2011: Rs. 41.864 million) higher / lower, mainly as a result of higher / lower interest expense on floating rate borrowings. Credit risk
Credit risk represents the risk of financial loss being caused if counter party fails to discharge an obligation. Credit risk of the Company arises from cash and cash equivalents, derivative financial instruments and deposits with banks and financial institutions, as well as credit exposures to distributors and wholesale and retail customers, including outstanding receivables and committed transactions. The management assesses the credit quality of the customers, taking into account their financial position, past experience and other factors. Individual risk limits are set based on internal or external ratings in accordance with limits set by the board. The utilisation of credit limits is regularly monitored and major sales to retail customers are settled in cash. For banks and financial institutions, only independently rated parties with a strong credit rating are accepted. The Company monitors the credit quality of its financial assets with reference to historical performance of such assets and available external credit ratings. The carrying values of financial assets exposed to credit risk and which are neither past due nor impaired are as under:

As of December 31, 2012, trade receivables of Rs. 783.080 million (2011: Rs. 494.402 million) were past due but not impaired. These relate to a number of independent customers for whom there is no recent history of default.
The aging analysis of these trade receivables is as follows:

The management estimates the recoverability of trade receivables on the basis of financial position and past history of its customers based on the objective evidence that it shall not receive the amount due from the particular customer. The provision is written off by the Company when it expects that it cannot recover the balance due. Any subsequent repayments in relation to amount written off, are credited directly to profit and loss account.

The credit quality of the Company’s bank balances can be assessed with reference to external credit ratings as follows: (Rupees in thousand)

Liquidity risk
Liquidity risk represents the risk that the Company shall encounter difficulties in meeting obligations associated with financial liabilities.
Prudent liquidity risk management implies maintaining sufficient cash and marketable securities, the availability of funding through an adequate amount of committed credit facilities. Due to the dynamic nature of the
Company’s businesses, the Company’s finance department maintains flexibility in funding by maintaining availability under committed credit lines.
Management monitors the forecasts of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents (note 43) on the basis of expected cash flow. This is generally carried out in accordance with practice and limits set by the Company. These limits vary by location to take into account the liquidity of the market in which the entity operates. In addition, the Company’s liquidity management policy involves projecting cash flows in each quarter and considering the level of liquid assets necessary to meet its liabilities, monitoring balance sheet liquidity ratios against internal and external regulatory requirements and maintaining debt financing plans.
The table below analyses the Company’s financial liabilities and net-settled derivative financial liabilities into relevant maturity groupings based on the remaining period at the balance sheet to the contractual maturity date.
The amounts disclosed in the table are the contractual undiscounted cash flows as the impact of discounting is not significant.

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 manages its capital structure and makes adjustments to it in the light of changes in economic conditions. In order to maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may adjust the amount of dividends paid to shareholders or issue new shares.

Fair value estimation

The fair value of financial instruments traded in active markets is based on quoted market prices at the balance sheet date. The quoted market price used for financial assets held by the Company are the current bid prices.

The financial instruments that are not traded in active market are carried at cost and are tested for impairment according to IAS 39. The fair value of interest rate swaps is calculated as the present value of the estimated future cash flows.

The carrying amount less impairment provision of trade receivables and payables are assumed to approximate their fair values. The fair value of financial liabilities for disclosure purposes is estimated by discounting the future contractual cash flows at the current market interest rate that is available to the Company for similar financial instruments.

Date of authorisation for issue

These financial statements were authorised for issue on March 18, 2013 by the Board of Directors of the Company.

Notes to and Forming Part of the Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2012
1.

Legal status and nature of business

Packages Limited (the Parent Company) and its subsidiaries, DIC Pakistan Limited, Packages Lanka (Private)
Limited, Packages Construction (Private) Limited and Bulleh Shah Packaging (Private) Limited [formerly Bulleh
Shah Paper Mill (Private) Limited] (together, ‘The Group’) are engaged in the following businesses:

2.
2.1

132

Packaging: Representing manufacture and sale of packaging materials and tissue products.
Paper and paperboard: Representing manufacture and sale of paper and paperboard of all kinds.
Inks: Representing manufacture and sale of finished and semi finished inks.
Construction: Representing all types of construction activities and development of real estate.
The Parent Company has entered into 50/50 Joint Venture Agreement (the “JV Agreement”) on September 17,
2012 with ‘Stora Enso OYJ Group’ (‘Stora Enso’) of Finland in its 100% wholly owned subsidiary Bulleh Shah
Packaging (Private) Limited [formerly Bulleh Shah Paper Mill (Private) Limited] (‘BSPL’). The Joint Venture will include Paper & Paperboard and Corrugated business operations at Kasur and Karachi and will involve initial equity participation of Stora Enso of 35% by way of subscription of right shares with a commitment to increase the shareholding to 50% at a later stage subject to certain conditions being met. The agreed value for 100% of the Joint
Venture Company is USD 107.5 million on a cash and debt free basis with additional equity to be subscribed by
Stora Enso through right shares in the Joint Venture Company of USD 17.5 million, based on the financial results of second half of 2012 and first half of 2013. The Parent Company shall continue to hold minimum 50% ownership and future profits of the Joint Venture.
Moreover, the Parent Company also decided to close down its Paper and Paperboard operations in Lahore, in addition to the above mentioned transaction, during the year.
As a result, the Group’s operations have been divided into Continuing and Discontinued operations in accordance with the requirements of International Financial Reporting Standard (IFRS) 5, ‘Non-current assets held for sale and Discontinued operations’. Paper and Paperboard and Corrugated businesses of the Parent Company have been classified as Discontinued operations because these will form part of the Joint Venture.
Upon subscription by Stora Enso in BSPL, the Parent Company shall derecognise its net assets of BSPL owing to loss of control and recognise an investment in jointly controlled entity, with Stora Enso as the Joint Venture partner. In view of the above, assets and corresponding liabilities as are envisaged to be transferred to BSPL are classified as held for sale under IFRS 5 as reflected in note 15 of these financial statements. These assets and liabilities have been measured at lower of their respective carrying values and fair values less cost to sell and the resultant estimated charge has been recognised in the consolidated profit and loss account.
The Paper and Paperboard operations of the Parent Company in Lahore have also been classified as a Discontinued operation as reflected in note 15 of these financial statements, in accordance with the requirements of IFRS 5. This has not been classified as held for sale as it does not meet the criteria for being classified as held for sale under
IFRS 5.
The figures of the prior period have been represented in accordance with the requirements of IFRS 5, wherever relevant. Basis of preparation
These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Ordinance,
1984 (the Ordinance) and the approved accounting standards as applicable in Pakistan. Approved accounting standards comprise of such International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) issued by the International
Accounting Standards Board and Islamic Financial Accounting Standards (IFAS) issued by the Institute of
Chartered Accountants of Pakistan as are notified under the Companies Ordinance, 1984, provisions of and directives issued under the Companies Ordinance, 1984. Wherever the requirements of the Companies Ordinance,
1984 or directives issued by Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan differ with the requirements of IFRS or IFAS, the requirements of the Companies Ordinance, 1984 or the requirements of the said directives prevail.

2.2

Initial application of standards, amendments or an interpretation to existing standards

The following amendments to existing standards have been published that are applicable to the Group’s financial statements covering annual periods, beginning on or after the following dates:

2.2.1

Amendments to published standards effective in current year

New and amended standards, and interpretations mandatory for the first time for the financial year beginning
January 1, 2012:

IFRS 1 (Amendment), ‘First time adoption’, on fixed dates and hyperinflation. These are applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after July 1, 2011. These amendments include two changes to IFRS 1, ‘First time adoption’ of IFRS. The first replaces references to a fixed date of January 1, 2004 with ‘the date of transition to IFRSs’, thus eliminating the need for companies adopting IFRSs for the first time to restate derecognition transactions that occurred before the date of transition to IFRSs. The second amendment provides guidance on how an entity should resume presenting financial statements in accordance with IFRSs after a period when the entity was unable to comply with IFRSs because its functional currency was subject to severe hyperinflation. The application of this amendment has no material impact on the Group’s financial statements.

2.2.2

IFRS 7 (Amendments), ‘Financial instruments: Disclosures’ on transfers of assets. These are applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after July 1, 2011. These amendments arise from the IASB’s review of offbalance sheet activities. The amendments shall promote transparency in the reporting of transfer transactions and improve users’ understanding of the risk exposures relating to transfers of financial assets and the effect of those risks on an entity’s financial position, particularly those involving securitisation of financial assets. Earlier application is permitted. The application of these amendments have no material impact on the Group’s financial statements. IAS 12 (Amendments), ‘Income taxes’, on deferred tax. These are applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2012. IAS 12, ‘Income taxes’, currently requires an entity to measure the deferred tax relating to an asset depending on whether the entity expects to recover the carrying amount of the asset through use or sale.
It can be difficult and subjective to assess whether recovery shall be through use or through sale when the asset is measured using the fair value model in IAS 40, ‘Investment property’. This amendment therefore introduces an exception to the existing principle for the measurement of deferred tax assets or liabilities arising on investment property measured at fair value. As a result of the amendments, SIC 21, ‘Income taxes - recovery of revalued non-depreciable assets’, shall no longer apply to investment properties carried at fair value. The amendments also incorporate into IAS 12 the remaining guidance previously contained in SIC 21, which is withdrawn. The application of these amendments have no material impact on the Group’s financial statements.
Standards, amendments and interpretations to existing standards that are not yet effective and have not been early adopted by the Group

The following amendments and interpretations to existing standards have been published and are mandatory for the Group’s accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013 or later periods, but the Group has not early adopted them:

Annual improvements to IFRSs 2011 are applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1,
2013. This set of amendments includes changes to five standards: IFRS 1, ‘First time adoption’, IAS 1, ‘Financial statement presentation’, IAS 16, ‘Property plant and equipment’, IAS 32, ‘Financial instruments; Presentation’ and
IAS 34, ‘Interim financial reporting’. The application of these amendments have no material impact on the Group’s financial statements.

IFRS 1 (Amendments), ‘First time adoption’, on Government loans is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. The amendment addresses how a first-time adopter would account for a Government loan with a below-market rate of interest when transitioning to IFRS. It also adds an exception to the retrospective application of IFRS, which provides the same relief to first-time adopters granted to existing preparers of IFRS financial statements when the requirement was incorporated into IAS 20 in 2008. The Group shall apply these amendments from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.

133

134

IFRS 7 (Amendments), ‘Financial instruments: Disclosures’, on offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. The amendment includes new disclosures to facilitate comparison between those entities that prepare IFRS financial statements to those that prepare financial statements in accordance with US GAAP. The Group shall apply these amendments from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.
IFRS 9 - ‘Financial instruments’ - classification and measurement. This is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2015. This standard on classification and measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities will replace IAS 39, ‘Financial instruments: Recognition and measurement’. IFRS 9 has two measurement categories: amortised cost and fair value. All equity instruments are measured at fair value. A debt instrument is measured at amortised cost only if the entity is holding it to collect contractual cash flows and the cash flows represent principal and interest. For liabilities, the standard retains most of the IAS 39 requirements.
These include amortised-cost accounting for most financial liabilities, with bifurcation of embedded derivatives.
The main change is that, in cases where the fair value option is taken for financial liabilities, the part of a fair value change due to an entity’s own credit risk is recorded in other comprehensive income rather than the income statement, unless this creates an accounting mismatch. This change will mainly affect financial institutions. The
Group shall apply this standard from January 1, 2015 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements. IFRS 10 - ‘Consolidated financial statements’ is applicable on accounting period beginning on or after
January 1, 2013. IFRS 10 builds on existing principles by identifying the concept of control as the determining factor in whether an entity should be included within the consolidated financial statements. The standard provides additional guidance to assist in determining control where this is difficult to assess. This new standard might impact the entities that a group consolidates as its subsidiaries. The Group shall apply this standard from
January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.
IFRS 11 - ‘Joint arrangements’ is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. IFRS
11 is a more realistic reflection of joint arrangements by focusing on the rights and obligations of the parties to the arrangement rather than its legal form. There are two types of joint arrangement: joint operations and joint ventures. Joint operations arise where a joint operator has rights to the assets and obligations relating to the arrangement and therefore accounts for its share of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses. Joint ventures arise where the joint operator has rights to the net assets of the arrangement and therefore equity accounts for its interest. Proportional consolidation of joint ventures is no longer allowed. The Group shall apply this standard from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.
IFRS 12 - ‘Disclosures of interests in other entities’. This is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2013. This standard includes the disclosure requirements for all forms of interests in other entities, including joint arrangements, associates, special purpose vehicles and other off-balance sheet vehicles. The
Group shall apply this standard from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements. IFRS 13 - ‘Fair value measurement’. This is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013.
This standard aims to improve consistency and reduce complexity by providing a precise definition of fair value and a single source of fair value measurement and disclosure requirements for use across IFRSs. The requirements, which are largely aligned between IFRSs and US GAAP, do not extend the use of fair value accounting but provide guidance on how it should be applied where its use is already required or permitted by other standards within
IFRSs or US GAAP. The Group shall apply this standard from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.
IAS 1 (Amendments), ‘Financial statement presentation’ regarding other comprehensive income. This is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after July 1, 2012. The main change resulting from these amendments is a requirement for entities to group items presented in other comprehensive income (OCI) on the basis of whether they are potentially recycled to profit or loss (re-classification adjustments). The amendments do not address which items are presented in OCI. The Group shall apply these amendments from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.

3.

IAS 19 (Amendments), ‘Employee benefits’ is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1,
2013. These amendments shall eliminate the corridor approach and calculate finance costs on a net funding basis.
The Group shall apply these amendments from January 1, 2013 and its impact on retained earnings shall be Rs.
259.306 million due to recognition of current unrealised actuarial losses on its defined benefit plans.
IAS 27 (Revised 2011), ‘Separate financial statements’ is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2013. It includes the provisions on separate financial statements that are left after the control provisions of IAS 27 which have been included in the new IFRS 10. The Group shall apply the revised standard from January
1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.
IAS 28 (Revised 2011), ‘Associates and joint ventures’ is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after
January 1, 2013. It includes the requirements for associates and joint ventures that have to be equity accounted following the issue of IFRS 11. The Group shall apply the revised standard from January 1, 2013 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.
IAS 32 (Amendments), ‘Financial instruments: Presentation’, on offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities is applicable on accounting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2014. These amendments update the application guidance in IAS 32, ‘Financial instruments: Presentation’, to clarify some of the requirements for offsetting financial assets and financial liabilities on the balance sheet. The Group shall apply these amendments from January 1, 2014 and does not expect to have a material impact on its financial statements.
Basis of measurement

3.1

These financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention except for revaluation of certain financial instruments at fair value and recognition of certain employee retirement benefits at present value. 3.2

The Group’s significant accounting policies are stated in note 4. Not all of these significant policies require the management to make difficult, subjective or complex judgments or estimates. The following is intended to provide an understanding of the policies the management considers critical because of their complexity, judgment and estimation involved in their application and their impact on these financial statements. Judgments and estimates are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. These judgments involve assumptions or estimates in respect of future events and the actual results may differ from these estimates. The areas involving a higher degree of judgments or complexity or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the financial statements are as follows:

4.

4.1

i) ii) iii) iv) v)

Estimated useful lives of property, plant and equipment - note 4.3
Provision for employees’ retirement benefits - note 4.9 & 9
Loss recognised on the re-measurement of assets of disposal group - note 15.2
Recoverable amount of certain investments in equity instruments - note 20.1.2
Provision for taxation - note 39

Significant accounting policies
The significant accounting policies adopted in the preparation of these financial statements are set out below.
These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless otherwise stated.
Principles of consolidation

a) Subsidiaries

Subsidiaries are all entities over which the holding company has the power to govern the financial and operating policies generally accompanying a shareholding of more than one half of the voting rights. The consolidated financial statements include Packages Limited and all companies in which it directly or indirectly controls, beneficially owns or holds more than 50% of the voting securities or otherwise has power to elect and appoint more than 50% of its directors. The existence and effect of potential voting rights that are currently exercisable or convertible are considered when assessing whether the Group controls another entity. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date on which control is transferred to the Group. They are de-consolidated from the date that control ceases.

135

b)

The purchase method of accounting is used to account for the acquisition of subsidiaries by the Group. The cost of an acquisition is measured as the fair value of the assets given, equity instruments issued and liabilities incurred or assumed at the date of exchange, plus costs directly attributable to the acquisition. Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilities assumed in a business combination are measured initially at their fair values at the acquisition date, irrespective of the extent of any non-controlling interest.
On an acquisition-by-acquisition basis, the Group recognises any non-controlling interest in the acquiree either at fair value or at the non-controlling interest’s proportionate share of the acquiree’s net assets.
The excess of the cost of acquisition over the fair value of the Group’s share of the identifiable net assets acquired is recorded as goodwill. If the cost of acquisition is less than the fair value of the net assets of the subsidiary acquired, the difference is recognised directly in the consolidated profit and loss account.
Inter company transactions, balances and unrealized gains on transactions between Group companies are eliminated. Unrealized losses are also eliminated but considered an impairment indicator of the asset transferred.
Accounting policies of subsidiaries have been changed where necessary to ensure consistency with the policies adopted by the Group.
Non-Controlling Interests
The Group treats transactions with non-controlling interests as transactions with equity owners of the Group. For purchases from non-controlling interests, the difference between any consideration paid and the relevant share acquired of the carrying value of net assets of the subsidiary is recorded in equity. Gains or losses on disposals to non-controlling interests are also recorded in equity.
When the Group ceases to have control or significant influence, any retained interest in the entity is re-measured to its fair value, with the change in carrying amount recognised in consolidated profit and loss account. The fair value is the initial carrying amount for the purposes of subsequently accounting for the retained interest as an associate, joint venture or financial asset. In addition, any amounts previously recognised in other comprehensive income in respect of that entity are accounted for as if the Group had directly disposed off the related assets or liabilities. This may mean that amounts previously recognised in other comprehensive income are reclassified to consolidated profit and loss account.
If the ownership interest in an associate is reduced but significant influence is retained, only a proportionate share of the amounts previously recognised in other comprehensive income are reclassified to consolidated profit and loss account where appropriate.

c) Associates

Associates are all entities over which the Group has significant influence but not control, generally accompanying a shareholding of between 20% and 50% of the voting rights. Investments in associates are accounted for using the equity method of accounting and are initially recognised at cost. The Group’s investment in associates includes goodwill identified on acquisition, net of any accumulated impairment loss.

The Group’s share of its associates’ post-acquisition profits or losses is recognised in the consolidated profit and loss account, and its share of post-acquisition movements in reserves is recognised in reserves. The cumulative post-acquisition movements are adjusted against the carrying amount of the investment. When the Group’s share of losses in an associate equals or exceeds its interest in the associate, including any other unsecured receivables, the Group does not recognise further losses, unless it has incurred obligations or made payments on behalf of the associate. Unrealised gains on transactions between the Group and its associates are eliminated to the extent of the Group’s interest in the associates. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of an impairment of the asset transferred. Accounting policies of associates have been changed where necessary to ensure consistency with the policies adopted by the Group.

Dilution gains and losses arising in investments in associates are recognised in the consolidated profit and loss account. 136

4.2

Taxation

Current

4.3

Provision of current tax is based on the taxable income for the year determined in accordance with the prevailing law for taxation of income. The charge for current tax is calculated using prevailing tax rates or tax rates expected to apply to the profit for the year, if enacted. The charge for current tax also includes adjustments, where considered necessary, to provision for tax made in previous years arising from assessments framed during the year for such years. Deferred
Deferred tax is accounted for using the balance sheet liability method in respect of all temporary differences arising from differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities in the financial statements and the corresponding tax bases used in the computation of the taxable profit. Deferred tax liabilities are generally recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits shall be available against which the deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and tax credits can be utilised.
Deferred tax is calculated at the rates that are expected to apply to the period when the differences reverse based on tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the balance sheet date. Deferred tax is charged or credited in the consolidated profit and loss account, except in the case of items credited or charged to equity in which case it is included in equity.
Provision is not made for taxation which would become payable if retained profits of subsidiaries were distributed to the Parent Company, as it is not the intention to distribute more than the dividends, the tax on which is included in the financial statements.
Property, plant and equipment
Property, plant and equipment, except freehold land, are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and any identified impairment loss. Freehold land is stated at cost less any identified impairment loss. Property, plant and equipment acquired under finance leases are capitalized at the lease’s commencement at the lower of the present value of minimum lease payments under the lease arrangements and the fair value of the leased property. Cost in relation to certain plant and machinery signifies historical cost, gains and losses transferred from equity on qualifying cash flow hedges as referred to in note 4.19 and borrowing costs as referred to in note 4.22.
Depreciation on all property, plant and equipment is charged to profit on the straight-line method so as to write off the depreciable amount of an asset over its estimated useful life at the following annual rates:
Buildings
Plant and machinery
Other equipments
Furniture and fixtures
Vehicles

2.5%
6.25%
10%
10%
20%

to to to to 20%
33.33%
33.33%
20%

The assets’ residual values and useful lives are reviewed, at each financial year end, and adjusted if impact on depreciation is significant. The Group’s estimate of the residual value of its property, plant and equipment as at
December 31, 2012 has not required any adjustment as its impact is considered insignificant.
Depreciation on additions to property, plant and equipment is charged from the month in which an asset is acquired or capitalised while no depreciation is charged for the month in which the asset is disposed off.
The Group assesses at each balance sheet date whether there is any indication that property, plant and equipment may be impaired. If such indication exists, the carrying amounts of such assets are reviewed to assess whether they are recorded in excess of their recoverable amount. Where carrying amounts exceed the respective recoverable amount, assets are written down to their recoverable amounts and the resulting impairment loss is recognised in consolidated profit and loss account. The recoverable amount is the higher of an asset’s fair value less costs to sell and value in use. Where an impairment loss is recognised, the depreciation charge is adjusted in the future periods to allocate the asset’s revised carrying amount over its estimated useful life.

137

4.4

4.5

Subsequent costs are included in the asset’s carrying amount or recognised as a separate asset, as appropriate, only when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item shall flow to the Group and the cost of the item can be measured reliably. All other repair and maintenance costs are charged to consolidated profit and loss account during the period in which they are incurred.
The gain or loss on disposal or retirement of an asset represented by the difference between the sale proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset is recognised as an income or expense.
Capital work-in-progress is stated at cost less any identified impairment loss.
Investment property
Property not held for own use or for sale in the ordinary course of business is classified as investment property.
The investment property of the Group comprises land and buildings and is valued using the cost method i.e. at cost less any accumulated depreciation and any identified impairment loss.
Depreciation on buildings is charged to profit on the straight line method so as to write off the depreciable amount of building over its estimated useful life at the rates ranging from 3.33% to 6.67% per annum. Depreciation on additions to investment property is charged from the month in which a property is acquired or capitalised while no depreciation is charged for the month in which the property is disposed off.
The assets’ residual values and useful lives are reviewed, at each financial year end, and adjusted if impact on depreciation is significant. The Group’s estimate of the residual value of its investment property as at December
31, 2012 has not required any adjustment as its impact is considered insignificant.
The Group assesses at each balance sheet date whether there is any indication that investment property may be impaired. If such indication exists, the carrying amounts of such assets are reviewed to assess whether they are recorded in excess of their recoverable amount. Where carrying amounts exceed the respective recoverable amount, assets are written down to their recoverable amount and the resulting impairment loss is recognised in consolidated profit and loss account. The recoverable amount is the higher of an asset’s fair value less costs to sell and value in use. Where an impairment loss is recognised, the depreciation charge is adjusted in the future periods to allocate the asset’s revised carrying amount over its estimated useful life.
The gain or loss on disposal or retirement of an asset represented by the difference between the sale proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset is recognised as an income or expense.
Intangible assets
Expenditure incurred to acquire computer software and SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) System are capitalised as intangible assets and stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and any identified impairment loss. Intangible assets are amortised using the straight line method over a period of three to five years.

Development costs are recognised as intangible assets when the following criteria are met: it is technically feasible to complete the intangible asset so that it will be available for use; - management intends to complete the intangible asset and use or sell it; - there is an ability to use or sell the intangible asset; - it can be demonstrated how the intangible asset will generate probable future economic benefits; - adequate technical, financial and other resources to complete the development and to use or sell the intangible asset are available; and - the expenditure attributable to the intangible asset during its development can be reliably measured.

138

Other development expenditures that do not meet these criteria are recognised as an expense as incurred.
Development costs previously recognised as an expense are not recognised as an asset in a subsequent period.
Amortisation on additions to intangible assets is charged from the month in which an asset is acquired or capitalised while no amortisation is charged for the month in which the asset is disposed off.

Annual Report of Packages Limited 2012 | Consolidated Financial Statements 2012

The Group assesses at each balance sheet date whether there is any indication that intangible assets may be impaired. If such indication exists, the carrying amounts of such assets are reviewed to assess whether they are recorded in excess of their recoverable amount. Where carrying amounts exceed the respective recoverable amount, assets are written down to their recoverable amounts and the resulting impairment loss is recognised in consolidated profit and loss account. The recoverable amount is the higher of an asset’s fair value less costs to sell and value in use. Where an impairment loss is recognised, the amortisation charge is adjusted in the future periods to allocate the asset’s revised carrying amount over its estimated useful life.

4.6

Leases

(1)

The Group is the lessee:

Finance leases

Leases where the Group has substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership are classified as finance leases.
Asset subject to finance lease are initially recognised at the lower of present value of minimum lease payments under the lease agreements and the fair value of the assets. Subsequently these assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and any identified impairment loss.

The related rental obligations, net of finance charges, are included in liabilities against assets subject to finance lease. The liabilities are classified as current and long-term depending upon the timing of the payment.
Each lease payment is allocated between the liability and finance charges so as to achieve a constant rate on the balance outstanding. The interest element of the rental is charged to profit over the lease term.

Assets acquired under a finance lease are depreciated over the useful life of the asset on a straight-line method at the rates given in note 4.3. Depreciation of leased assets is charged to profit and loss account.

Depreciation on additions to leased assets is charged from the month in which an asset is acquired while no depreciation is charged for the month in which the asset is disposed off.

Operating leases

Leases including Ijarah financing where a significant portion of the risks and rewards of ownership are retained by the lessor are classified as operating leases. Payments made under operating leases (net of any incentives received from the lessor) are charged to profit on a straight-line basis over the lease / Ijarah term unless another systematic basis is representative of the time pattern of the Group’s benefit.

(2)

The Group is the lessor:

Operating leases

Assets leased out under operating leases are included in investment property as referred to in note 18. They are depreciated over their expected useful lives on a basis consistent with similar owned property, plant and equipment. Rental income (net of any incentives given to lessees) is recognised on a straight-line basis over the lease term. 4.7 Goodwill

Goodwill represents the excess of the cost of an acquisition over the fair value of the Group’s share of the net identifiable assets of the acquired subsidiary / associate at the date of acquisition. Goodwill on acquisitions of subsidiaries is included in ‘intangible assets’. Goodwill on acquisitions of associates is included in ‘investments in associates’ and is tested for impairment as part of the overall balance. Separately recognised goodwill is tested annually for impairment and carried at cost less accumulated impairment losses. Impairment losses on goodwill are not reversed. Gains and losses on the disposal of an entity include the carrying amount of goodwill relating to the entity sold.

4.8 Investments

Investments intended to be held for less than twelve months from the balance sheet date or to be sold to raise operating capital, are included in current assets, all other investments are classified as non-current. Management determines the appropriate classification of its investments at the time of the purchase and re-evaluates such designation on a regular basis. 139

Investments in equity instruments of associates

Associates are all entities over which the Group has significant influence but not control. Investments in equity instruments of associates are accounted for using the equity method of accounting and are initially recognised at cost. The Group’s investment in associates includes goodwill (net of any accumulated impairment loss) identified on acquisition. The Group’s share of its associates’ post-acquisition profits or losses is recognised in the consolidated profit and loss account, and its share of post-acquisition movements in reserves is recognised in reserves. The cumulative post-acquisition movements are adjusted against the carrying amount of the investment.
When the Group’s share of losses in an associate equals or exceeds its interest in the associate, including any other unsecured receivables, the Group does not recognise further losses, unless it has incurred obligations or made payments on behalf of the associate. Unrealised gains on transactions between the Group and its associates are eliminated to the extent of the Group’s interest in the associates. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of an impairment of the asset transferred.

Other investments
The other investments made by the Group are classified for the purpose of measurement into the following categories: Held to maturity
Investments with fixed maturity that the management has the intent and ability to hold to maturity are classified as held to maturity and are initially measured at cost and at subsequent reporting dates measured at amortised cost using the effective yield method.
Available for sale
The financial assets including investments in associated undertakings where the Group does not have significant influence that are intended to be held for an indefinite period of time or may be sold in response to the need for liquidity are classified as available for sale.
Investments classified as available for sale are initially measured at cost, being the fair value of consideration given. At subsequent reporting dates, these investments are remeasured at fair value (quoted market price), unless fair value cannot be reliably measured. The investments for which a quoted market price is not available, are measured at cost as it is not possible to apply any other valuation methodology. Unrealised gains and losses arising from the changes in the fair value are included in fair value reserves in the period in which they arise.
All purchases and sales of investments are recognised on the trade date which is the date that the Group commits to purchase or sell the investment. Cost of purchase includes transaction cost.
At each balance sheet date, the Group reviews the carrying amounts of the investments to assess whether there is any indication that such investments have suffered an impairment loss. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment loss, if any. Impairment losses are recognised as expense in the consolidated profit and loss account. In respect of ‘available for sale’ financial assets, cumulative impairment loss less any impairment loss on that financial asset previously recognised in consolidated profit and loss account, is removed from equity and recognised in the consolidated profit and loss account. Impairment losses recognised in the consolidated profit and loss account on equity instruments are not reversed through the consolidated profit and loss account.

4.9

Employee retirement benefits

The main features of the schemes operated by the Group for its employees are as follows:

4.9.1

Defined benefit plans

(a)

All the executive staff participates in an approved funded defined benefit pension plan. In addition, there is an approved funded defined benefit gratuity plan for all employees. Monthly contributions are made to these funds on the basis of actuarial recommendation at the rate of 20 percent per annum of basic salaries for pension and
4.50 percent per annum of basic salaries for gratuity. The latest actuarial valuation for the pension and gratuity schemes was carried out as at December 31, 2012. The actual returns on plan assets during the year were Rs.
160.162 million and Rs. 65.516 million for the pension and gratuity funds respectively. The actual returns on plan

140

Annual Report of Packages Limited 2012 | Consolidated Financial Statements 2012

assets represent the difference between the fair value of plan assets at beginning of the year and end of the year after adjustments for contributions made by the Group as reduced by benefits paid during the year.

(b)

The future contribution rates of these plans include allowances for deficit and surplus. Projected unit credit method, using the following significant assumptions, is used for valuation of these schemes:
Discount rate 11 percent per annum;
Expected rate of increase in salary level 9 percent per annum;
Expected mortality rate EFU 61-66 mortality table;
Expected rate of return 12.5 percent per annum; and
Future pension increase 2.5 percent per annum.
Plan assets include long-term Government bonds, equity instruments of listed companies and term deposits with banks. Return on Government bonds and debt is at fixed rates, however, due to increased volatility of share prices in recent months, there is no clear indication of return on equity shares, therefore, it has been assumed that the yield on equity shares would match the return on debt.
The Group is expected to contribute Rs. 30.410 million to the pension fund and Rs. 12.422 million to the gratuity fund in the next financial year.
The Group’s policy with regard to actuarial gains / losses is to follow minimum recommended approach under IAS
19 ‘Employee Benefits’.
In a meeting held on December 26, 2012 the board of trustees of the pension fund have decided to convert the existing defined benefit plan to defined contribution plan for all its employees active as on December 31, 2012 with effect from January 1, 2013 subject to such regulatory approvals as are necessary in the circumstances.
The proposed scheme has been subsequently approved by the taxation authorities on February 22, 2013 and respective employees consent with the proposed scheme has also been obtained in the subsequent period. This conversion has been accounted for as a curtailment under IAS 19 - Employee benefits.
The Joint Venture agreement with Stora Enso requires all accumulated balances due and payable to the employees in respect of pension and gratuity maintained with Packages Limited as a consequence of cessation of their employment with Packages Limited to be transferred by Packages Limited to BSPL or directly paid to the employees. This has been treated as a settlement as per IAS 19 - Employee Benefits.
Accumulating compensated absences
The Group provides for accumulating compensated absences when the employees render services that increase their entitlement to future compensated absences. The executives and workers are entitled to earned annual and medical leaves on basis of their service with the Group. The annual leaves can be encashed at the time the employee leaves the Group on the basis of the gross salary while no encashment is available for medical leaves to executives.
The Group uses the valuation performed by an independent actuary as the present value of its accumulating compensated absences.
Projected unit credit method, using the following significant assumptions, has been used for valuation of accumulating compensated absences:

Discount rate 11 percent per annum;
Expected rate of increase in salary level 9 percent per annum; and
Expected mortality rate EFU 61-66 mortality table.

4.9.2

Defined contribution plan

There is an approved contributory provident fund for all employees. Equal monthly contributions are made by the
Group and the employees to the fund.

141

4.9.3

4.10

Retirement benefits are payable to staff on completion of prescribed qualifying period of service under these schemes. Pension plan is a multi-employer plan formed by the Parent Company in collaboration with Tri Pack Films Limited and DIC Pakistan Limited. Similarly, Gratuity plan is also a multi-employer plan formed by the Parent Company in collaboration with DIC Pakistan Limited. Contribution by the Group companies is based on the respective number of employees of each company. Each Group company reports its proportionate share of the plan’s commitments, managed assets and costs, in accordance with guidance provided by IAS 19 - Employee Benefits, regarding defined benefit plans, based on the number of its employees participating in the plans.
Stores and spares
Stores and spares are valued at moving average cost, while items considered obsolete are carried at nil value.
Items in transit are valued at cost comprising invoice value plus other charges paid thereon.
Provision is made in the financial statements for obsolete and slow moving stores and spares based on management estimate.

4.11 Stock-in-trade

4.12

4.13

4.14

Stock of raw materials, except for those in transit, work-in-process and finished goods are valued principally at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost of raw materials is determined using the weighted average cost method. Cost of work-in-process and finished goods comprises direct production costs such as raw materials, consumables and labour as well as production overheads such as employee wages, depreciation, maintenance, etc. The production overheads are measured based on a standard cost method, which is reviewed regularly to ensure relevant measures of utilisation, production lead time etc.
Materials in transit are stated at cost comprising invoice value plus other charges paid thereon.
If the expected sales price less completion costs and costs to execute sales (net realisable value) is lower than the carrying amount, a write-down is recognised for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds its net realisable value. Provision is made in the financial statements for obsolete and slow moving stock in trade based on management estimate.
Financial instruments
Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognised at the time when the Group becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument and derecognised when the Group loses control of contractual rights that comprise the financial assets and in the case of financial liabilities when the obligation specified in the contract is discharged, cancelled or expired. Any gain or loss on derecognition of financial assets and financial liabilities is included in the consolidated profit and loss account for the year.
Financial instruments carried on the consolidated balance sheet include loans, investments, trade and other debts, cash and bank balances, borrowings, trade and other payables, accrued expenses and unclaimed dividends.
All financial assets and liabilities are initially measured at cost, which is the fair value of consideration given and received respectively. These financial assets and liabilities are subsequently measured at fair value or cost as the case may be. The particular recognition methods adopted are disclosed in the individual policy statements associated with each item.
Offsetting of financial assets and liabilities
Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount is reported in the financial statements only when there is a legally enforceable right to set off the recognised amount and the Group intends either to settle on a net basis or to realise the assets and to settle the liabilities simultaneously.
Trade debts
Trade debts are recognized initially at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less an estimate made for doubtful debts based on a review of all outstanding amounts at the year end. Bad debts are written off when identified.

4.15

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents are carried in the consolidated balance sheet at cost. For the purpose of consolidated

142

Annual Report of Packages Limited 2012 | Consolidated Financial Statements 2012

cash flow statement, cash and cash equivalents comprise cash in hand, demand deposits, other short-term highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of change in value and finances under mark up arrangements. In the balance sheet, finances under mark up arrangements are included in current liabilities. 4.16

Non-current assets held for sale
Non-current assets are classified as assets held-for-sale when their carrying amount is to be recovered principally through a sale transaction and a sale is considered highly probable. They are stated at the lower of carrying amount and fair value less cost to sell.

4.17 Borrowings

4.18

4.19

4.20

4.21

Borrowings are initially recorded at the proceeds received. In subsequent periods, borrowings are stated at amortised cost using the effective yield method. Finance costs are accounted for on an accrual basis and are shown as accrued finance cost to the extent of the amount remaining unpaid.
Trade and other payables
Liabilities for creditors and other amounts payable are recognised at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method.
Derivative financial instruments
These are initially recorded at cost on the date a derivative contract is entered into and are remeasured to fair value at subsequent reporting dates. The method of recognising the resulting gain or loss depends on whether the derivative is designated as a hedging instrument, and if so, the nature of the item being hedged. The Group designates certain derivatives as cash flow hedges.
The Group documents at the inception of the transaction the relationship between the hedging instruments and hedged items, as well as its risk management objective and strategy for undertaking various hedge transactions.
The Group also documents its assessment, both at hedge inception and on an ongoing basis, of whether the derivatives that are used in hedging transactions are highly effective in offsetting changes in cash flow of hedged items. The effective portion of changes in the fair value of derivatives that are designated and qualify as cash flow hedges are recognised in consolidated statement of other comprehensive income. The gain or loss relating to the ineffective portion is recognised immediately in the consolidated profit and loss account.
Amounts accumulated in equity are recognised in consolidated profit and loss account in the periods when the hedged item shall effect profit or loss. However, when the forecast hedged transaction results in the recognition of a non-financial asset or a liability, the gain and losses previously deferred in equity are transferred from equity and included in the initial measurement of the cost of the asset or liability.
Revenue recognition
Revenue is recognised on despatch of goods or on the performance of services. It includes sales to associates but doesn’t include sales by associates or sales between Group companies.
Return on deposits is accrued on a time proportion basis by reference to the principal outstanding and the applicable rate of return.
Dividend income and entitlement of bonus shares are recognised when right to receive such dividend and bonus shares is established.
Foreign currency transactions and translation
Foreign currency transactions are translated into Pak Rupees using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions. All monetary assets and liabilities in foreign currencies are translated into Pak Rupees at the rates of exchange prevailing at the balance sheet date. Foreign exchange gains and losses on translation are recognised in the consolidated profit and loss account. All non-monetary items are translated into Pak Rupees at exchange rates prevailing on the date of transaction or on the date when fair values are determined. Foreign exchange gains and losses are recognised in the consolidated profit and loss account except incase of items recognised in equity in which case it is included in equity.

143

4.22

For the purposes of consolidation, income and expense items of the foreign subsidiary are translated at annual average exchange rate. All monetary and non monetary assets and liabilities are translated at the exchange rate prevailing at the balance sheet date except for share capital which is translated at historical rate. Exchange differences arising on the translation of foreign subsidiary are classified as equity reserve until the disposal of interest in such subsidiary.
The financial statements are presented in Pak Rupees, which is the Group’s functional and presentation currency. Borrowing costs
Mark up, interest and other charges on borrowings are capitalised up to the date of commissioning of the related property, plant and equipment acquired out of the proceeds of such borrowings. All other mark up, interest and other charges are charged to consolidated profit and loss account.

4.23 Dividend

4.24

Dividend distribution to the shareholders is recognised as a liability in the period in which the dividends are approved. Compound financial instruments
Compound financial instruments issued by the Parent Company represent preference shares / convertible stock that can be converted into ordinary shares or can be settled in cash.
The liability component of a compound financial instrument is recognised initially at the fair value of a similar liability that does not have an equity conversion option. The equity component is recognised initially at the difference between the fair value of the compound financial instrument as a whole and the fair value of the liability component. Any directly attributable transaction costs are allocated to the liability and equity components in proportion to their initial carrying amounts.
Subsequent to initial recognition, the liability component of a compound financial instrument is measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. The equity component of a compound financial instrument is not re-measured subsequent to initial recognition except on conversion or expiry.

4.25

Segment reporting

Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the chief operating decision-maker. The chief operating decision-maker, who is responsible for allocating resources and assessing performance of the operating segments, has been identified as the Board of Directors of the Parent Company.

4.26 Provisions

Provisions for environmental restoration, restructuring costs and legal claims are recognised when:

(i) the Group has a present legal or constructive obligation as a result of past events;
(ii) it is probable that an outflow of resources shall be required to settle the obligation; and
(iii) the amount has been reliably estimated.

144

Restructuring provisions include lease termination penalties and employee termination payments and such other costs that are necessarily entailed by the restructuring and not associated with on going activities of the Group.
Provisions are not recognised for future operating losses.
Where there are a number of similar obligations, the likelihood that an outflow shall be required in settlement is determined by considering the class of obligations as a whole. A provision is recognised even if the likelihood of an outflow with respect to any one item included in the same class of obligations may be small.
Provisions are measured at the present value of the expenditures expected to be required to settle the obligation using a pre-tax rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the obligation. The increase in the provision due to passage of time is recognised as interest expense.

In 1987, the then Income Tax Officer (ITO) re-opened the Parent Company’s assessments for the accounting years ended
December 31, 1983 and 1984 disallowing primarily tax credit given to the Parent Company under section 107 of the
Income Tax Ordinance, 1979. The tax credit amounting to Rs. 36.013 million on its capital expenditure for these years was refused on the grounds that such expenditure represented an extension of the Parent Company’s undertaking which did not qualify for tax credit under this section in view of the Parent Company’s location. The assessments for these years were revised by the ITO on these grounds and taxes reassessed were adjusted against certain sales tax refunds and the tax credits previously determined by the ITO and set off against the assessments framed for these years.
The Parent Company had filed an appeal against the revised orders of the ITO before the then Commissioner of Income
Tax (Appeals) [CIT(A)], Karachi. CIT(A) in his order issued in 1988, held the assessments reframed by the ITO for the years 1983 and 1984 presently to be void and of no legal effect. The ITO has filed an appeal against the CIT(A)’s order with the then Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT). The ITAT has in its order issued in 1996 maintained the order of
CIT(A). The assessing officer after the receipt of the appellate order passed by CIT(A), had issued notices under section
65 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 1979 and the Parent Company had filed a writ petition against the aforesaid notices with the High Court of Sindh, the outcome of which is still pending.
The amount recoverable Rs. 36.013 million represents the additional taxes paid as a result of the disallowance of the tax credits on reframing of the assessments.

Financial risk management

48.1

Financial risk factors

The Group’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks: market risk (including currency risk, fair value interest rate risk, cash flow interest rate risk and price risk), credit risk and liquidity risk. The Group’s overall risk management programme focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and seeks to minimise potential adverse effects on the Group’s financial performance. The Group uses derivative financial instruments to hedge certain risk exposures.

177

Risk management is carried out by the Group’s finance department under policies approved by the board of directors. The Group’s finance department evaluates and hedges financial risks. The board provides written principles for overall risk management, as well as written policies covering specific areas, such as foreign exchange risk, interest rate risk, credit risk, use of derivative financial instruments and non-derivative financial instruments, and investment of excess liquidity.

(a)

Market risk

(i)

Foreign exchange risk

Foreign exchange risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument shall fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates.

The Group operates internationally and is exposed to foreign exchange risk arising from various currency exposures, primarily with respect to the US dollar and the Euro. Foreign exchange risk arises from future commercial transactions and recognised assets and liabilities and net investments in foreign operations.
At December 31, 2012, if the Rupee had weakened / strengthened by 10% against the US dollar with all other variables held constant, post-tax loss for the year would have been Rs. 10.196 million higher / lower (2011: Rs.
15.210 million higher / lower) mainly as a result of foreign exchange losses / gains on translation of US dollardenominated financial assets and liabilities.
At December 31, 2012, if the Rupee had weakened / strengthened by 10% against the Euro with all other variables held constant, post-tax loss for the year would have been Rs. 10.098 million (2011: Rs. 6.293 million) higher / lower, mainly as a result of foreign exchange losses / gains on translation of Euro-denominated financial assets and liabilities.
At December 31, 2012, if the Rupee had weakened / strengthened by 10% against the Sri Lankan rupee with all other variables held constant, other component of equity would have been Rs. 49.588 million (2011: Rs. 44.583 million) higher / lower, mainly as a result of foreign exchange gains / losses on translation of net assets of Packages
Lanka (Private) Limited, denominated in Sri Lankan Rupee.

(ii)

Price risk

The Group is exposed to equity securities price risk because of investments held by the Group and classified as available for sale. The Group is not exposed to commodity price risk. To manage its price risk arising from investments in equity securities, the Group diversifies its portfolio. Diversification of the portfolio is done in accordance with the limits set by the board of directors.

The Group’s investments in equity of other entities that are publicly traded are included in all of the following three stock exchanges, Karachi Stock Exchange, Lahore Stock Exchange and Islamabad Stock Exchange.
The table below summarises the impact of increases / decreases of the KSE-100 index on the Group’s post-tax profit for the year and on equity. The analysis is based on the assumption that the KSE had increased / decreased by 10% with all other variables held constant and all the Group’s equity instruments moved according to the historical correlation with the index:

Post-tax profit for the year would increase / decrease as a result of gains / losses on equity securities classified as at fair value through profit or loss. Other components of equity would increase / decrease as a result of gains / losses on equity securities classified as available for sale.

Annual Report of Packages Limited 2012 | Consolidated Financial Statements 2012

(iii)

Cash flow and fair value interest rate risk

As the Group has no significant floating interest rate assets, the Group’s income is substantially independent of changes in market interest rates.

The Group’s interest rate risk arises from short-term and long-term borrowings. These borrowings issued at variable rates expose the Group to cash flow interest rate risk.

(b)

The Group analyses its interest rate exposure on a dynamic basis. Various scenarios are simulated taking into consideration refinancing, renewal of existing positions, alternative financing and hedging. Based on these scenarios, the Group calculates the impact on profit and loss of a defined interest rate shift. The scenarios are run only for liabilities that represent the major interest-bearing positions.
At December 31, 2012, if interest rates on floating rate borrowings had been 1% higher / lower with all other variables held constant, post-tax loss for the year would have been Rs. 72.195 million (2011: Rs. 68.223 million) higher / lower, mainly as a result of higher / lower interest expense on floating rate borrowings.
Credit risk
Credit risk represents the risk of financial loss being caused if counter party fails to discharge an obligation.
Credit risk of the Group arises from cash and cash equivalents, derivative financial instruments and deposits with banks and financial institutions, as well as credit exposures to distributors and wholesale and retail customers, including outstanding receivables and committed transactions. The management assesses the credit quality of the customers, taking into account their financial position, past experience and other factors. Individual risk limits are set based on internal or external ratings in accordance with limits set by the board. The utilisation of credit limits is regularly monitored and major sales to retail customers are settled in cash. For banks and financial institutions, only independently rated parties with a strong credit rating are accepted.
The Group monitors the credit quality of its financial assets with reference to historical performance of such assets and available external credit ratings. The carrying values of financial assets exposed to credit risk and which are neither past due nor impaired are as under:

As of December 31, 2012, trade receivables of Rs. 995.469 million (2011: Rs. 675.924 million) were past due but not impaired. These relate to a number of independent customers for whom there is no recent history of default.
The aging analysis of these trade receivables is as follows:

The management estimates the recoverability of trade receivables on the basis of financial position and past history of its customers based on the objective evidence that it shall not receive the amount due from the particular customer. The provision is written off by the Group when it expects that it cannot recover the balance due. Any subsequent repayments in relation to amount written off, are credited directly to profit and loss account.

The credit quality of Group’s bank balances can be assessed with reference to external credit ratings as follows:

Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk represents the risk that the Group shall encounter difficulties in meeting obligations associated with financial liabilities.

180

Prudent liquidity risk management implies maintaining sufficient cash and marketable securities, the availability of funding through an adequate amount of committed credit facilities. Due to the dynamic nature of the Group’s businesses, the Group’s finance department maintains flexibility in funding by maintaining availability under committed credit lines.
Management monitors the forecasts of the Group’s cash and cash equivalents (note 45) on the basis of expected cash flow. This is generally carried out in accordance with practice and limits set by the Group. These limits vary by location to take into account the liquidity of the market in which the entity operates. In addition, the Group’s liquidity management policy involves projecting cash flows in each quarter and considering the level of liquid assets necessary to meet its liabilities, monitoring balance sheet liquidity ratios against internal and external regulatory requirements and maintaining debt financing plans.

Capital risk management

The Group’s objectives when managing capital are to safeguard the Group’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 Group manages its capital structure and makes adjustments to it in the light of changes in economic conditions. In order to maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Group may adjust the amount of dividends paid to shareholders or issue new shares.
Consistent with others in the industry, the Group monitors capital on the basis of the gearing ratio. During 2012, the Group’s strategy was to maintain the gearing ratio below 60% and a AA credit rating. The gearing ratios at
December 31, 2012 and 2011 were as follows:

Fair value estimation

The fair value of financial instruments traded in active markets is based on quoted market prices at the balance sheet date. The quoted market price used for financial assets held by the Group are the current bid prices.

181

The financial instruments that are not traded in active market are carried at cost and are tested for impairment according to IAS 39. The fair value of interest rate swaps is calculated as the present value of the estimated future cash flows.

The carrying amount less impairment provision of trade receivables and payables are assumed to approximate their fair values. The fair value of financial liabilities for disclosure purposes is estimated by discounting the future contractual cash flows at the current market interest rate that is available to the Group for similar financial instruments. 49.

Internships

...Write a comment on the topic of internships. Where possible bring in own experiences. Over the last few years, the position of interns has been quite often in the limelight of the German press and usually, the tenor was that internships do more harm than good. The main complaints are that companies use interns to replace full-time jobs, that interns are usually underpaid - sometimes even unpaid - and furthermore are used to fulfill boring tasks such as copying and making coffee. Moreover, many people argue that is often impossible to get an internship without personal connections. Therefore, internships are seen as an one-sided deal that makes companies laugh all the way to the bank. In my view, these accusations are only justified in some cases. Certainly, there are companies and institutions where these accusations are true. From talking to friends I know that it is close to impossible to find an internship and therefore gain any work experience during university if one studies a subject that is not related to business or science. Moreover, these are usually also the people who have to agree to work for free if they want to gain some work experience that gives them an edge over other applicants after graduating. However, my viewpoint as a business student differs significantly from that of the above mentioned group and my university friends see eye to eye. I have done three internships and also, I have been a working student in two different companies, and I will enter......

...The Internship Report Rationale ∗ (Eng 498/698) Because the student who does an internship receives credit from the university, graded credit determined by the technical writing faculty, there needs to be documentation in addition to the site supervisor's evaluation as a basis for that graded credit. Submitting an internship report not only provides the faculty with a document which qualifies the student for graded credit, it also provides the faculty with in-depth information about the profession they are responsible for preparing students to participate in. Furthermore, and of considerable importance, the internship report increases the student's responsibility by requiring the student intern to gather information and plan the report throughout the work experience. The student then has an opportunity to demonstrate maturity as a technical writer by presenting, analyzing, and evaluating his or her own work on the job. Report Content and Format The internship report comprises four parts, each involving a different kind of information and a different mode of written discourse: (1) introduction, (2) narrative, (3) analysis and evaluation, and (4) appendix. Introduction The introduction explains the setting where the work was accomplished and gives a sense of how the intern's job related to the entire work of the hiring organization. This section lends itself to the inverted pyramid organization, moving from general information about the entire organization to a......

...This  internship provides the chance to apply the theories I have learned from my major subjects specifically in psychological testing and administration and guidance and counseling. In line with psychological testing and administration, my experience focuses on tagging names to student’s personal data inventory, tallying student’s personal data, administering and interpreting a psychological test. From these experiences, I was able to recognize and understand how a psychological test as an instrument would help students, parents of the students, teachers as well as the improvement of a certain institution or school. Through psychological test results, psychometricians would be able to assess wealth of information on effective study habits for students, effective ways of teaching skills for teachers, etc. This enhances student school performance and reveals maximum learning potential. A psychometrician is responsible for administering and interpreting a psychological test through this psychometricians will become a channel to the guidance counselors as to what programs can be proposed that would become a response to students needs. In terms of counseling, we have instructed by Mr. San Juan, the guidance counselor of Criminology Department to entertain those criminology students who will enter the guidance office to ask clearance for them to enter their classes. This process is only exercised by the criminology department only. It happens when criminology students commits two...

...As I sit back in my poorly furnished New York City apartment with just one week to go on my internship I reflect on the course of the last three months. Has this trip brought me the answer to my future? Or has it just made the process of determining what in fact i’d be doing much harder? As I recollect the events that have transpired since I entered The City That Never Sleeps, New York City, the major detail I’ve determined in my process to create a formula for success is that you will never succeed without an education. I had many preconceived notions coming into this internship, and I can proudly say I was wrong on about 95% of them. In this paper I will be going over the learning process of this internship and how it unfolded the past several months. When thinking about the high pace industry of fashion retail I was not sure how far education played a role in this particular field. I originally thought it was a more of a who you knew or who you’ve worked with type of business. That was my first mistake, at 10 Deep, a high end urban fashion brand that I am currently working for, every single person within the office has at minimum a bachelors degree. Along with my job at 10 Deep I got another job to help pay for my expenses on this trip. Interview after interview I was limited to what jobs I could apply for due to my lack of school experience. Being labeled inadequate for certain positions was troubling for me, believing I was fully capable for many......

...EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS OF CHARACTERISTICS ASSOCIATED WITH ACCOUNTING INTERNSHIPS James H. Thompson Associate Professor of Accounting Central Washington University 2400 S. 240th Street, Des Moines, WA 98198, USA. Phone: 206-439-3800 x3839 E-mail: jht@cwu.edu Abstract Internships are a popular element used to enhance accounting education. Although previous studies have considered internships, many have addressed enhancement of subsequent academic and professional performance. The purpose of this paper is broader and examines several characteristics of accounting internships: the frequency of participation, eligibility requirements, process for securing internships, level of participation, availability and amount of academic credit, area of assignments, nature of post-internship requirements, and benefits to students. Two random samples, one in 1998 and one in 2003, of 100 accounting programs were analyzed in the study. For each program selected, the survey was mailed to accounting program administrators. Responses were collected by fax. The results of this study should be of interest to accounting students, faculty program administrators, and practitioners. Gaining real-life knowledge of accounting tasks and obtaining insight regarding career planning were the two most important benefits identified. Future research should consider the perceptions of accounting students and practitioners. Introduction Internships are a popular element of accounting education. Supervised......
