DIRECTORS REPORT
The Board of Directors of Al Meezan Mutual Fund Limited is pleased to present the accounts for the year ended June 30, 2004. The Economy A continuation of the governments positive economic and international political policies have resulted in macro-economic stability for the country. Acceleration in growth accompanied by a sharp pick up in industrial production, a strong upsurge in investment, achievement of export targets and strengthening of the external balance of payments have been the hallmarks of this year's performance. The pre-payment of high cost external debt and GDP growth rate of 6.4% have been other stellar occurrences of the fiscal year 2003-04. The country's recent 500 million dollar Euro bond issue which was over subscribed over four times has earned the country and its Finance Minister, who is also the Prime Minister designate, great accolades and admiration. The country has been declared as the Best Sovereign Borrower of Asia by Euromoney of UK, which portrays the international market's confidence in Pakistan. The budget for the next fiscal year was announced on June 12, 2004. The budget was widely welcomed by the trade and industry as it was incentive-laden both for corporate and industrial sectors aiming at boosting production and exports. Overall it was a pro-growth and investment friendly budget although the market completely ignored these positive aspects due to the imposition of the Capital Value Tax (CVT) on shares trading. In any case, structural changes introduced in the Finance Bill 2004-05 will facilitate long-term growth for industry and agriculture. The expansionary nature of the reforms introduced will provide major thrust for economic growth in the future. The Politics The fiscal year's third quarter saw the resolution of the long-standing Legal Framework Order (LFO) issue. Relationship between India and Pakistan has improved substantially as a result of sincere efforts from both sides. Talks between the two nations have been planned on all subjects ranging from distribution of water resources to the contentious Kashmir issue. There were a few apprehensions regarding the peace process due to change in government in India as a result of general elections. However the fears were dispelled by the ruling Congress Party when it pledged to continue the process started by BJP. The Stock Market The economic, corporate and capital market reforms undertaken by the Ministry of Finance, State Bank of Pakistan and the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan have resulted in stability and growth of the stock markets in the country. Recent measures taken to strengthen risk management, attract new listings, introduce internet trading and promote investors' education as well as fair trade practices and market transparency have resulted in renewed interest in the stock market. The market capitalization of the Karachi Stock Exchange has increased by 300 percent in the last four years, to the current level of around US$ 25 billion. This fiscal year saw two large offers for sale by the Privatization Commission, namely Oil & Gas Development Company Limited (OGDCL) and Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGC), besides sale of strategic stake of Habib Bank Limited. The success of these three big issues has paved the way for other issues, with the public offering of Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL) already scheduled

Annual Report 2 0 0 4

right after the end of the fiscal year. The individual investors have shown immense interest in both the earlier public offerings, resulting in oversubscription of 4 times for OGDCL and 15 times for SSGC. Similar response is expected in case of PPL. The stock market closed the year at 5279.18, up 55% from June 30, 2003. During the year the index touched its highest ever level at 5620.66 on April 19, 2004 after which the market has been in a corrective mode mainly due to worsening law and order situation and hike in interest rates. OPERATING RESULTS The company posted a growth of 34% in net profit to Rs.261 million for the year from Rs.195 million for the previous year. The operating results for the year are as follows: (Rupees) Investment Income Operating Expenses Surplus on revaluation of 'held for trading' investments Profit Before Taxation Provision for Taxation Net Profit for the Year Proposed Cash Dividend @ 10% Proposed Issue of Bonus shares @ 15% 274,148,774 (23,645,786) 10,700,613 261,203,601 Nil 261,203,601 77,500,000 116,250,000

During the year, the company realized capital gains of Rs.208.6 million, dividend income of Rs.62.4 million and other income of Rs.3.2 million. Composition of Net Assets On June 30, 2004 the composition of net assets of your company at market value (before appropriation) was as under: Cash & Net Receivables 30.76% Marketable Securities 69.24%

COMPOSITION OF NET ASSETS AS ON JUNE 30, 2004 The top five holdings of the Company as on June 30, 2004 based on market value were as follows: Company Market Value (Rs. in million) 112.8 106.4 70.2 60.9 50.4 Percentage of Net Assets 10.00% 9.40% 6.20% 5.40% 4.50%

Mohammad Shoaib - CFA Chief Executive Karachi: August 2, 2004 Review Report to the Members on Statement of Compliance with Best Practices of Code of Corporate Governance

We have reviewed the Statement of Compliance with the best practices contained in the Code of Corporate Governance prepared by the Board of Directors of Al Meezan Mutual Fund Limited to comply with the Listing Regulation No. 37 of the Karachi Stock Exchange where the Company is listed. The responsibility for compliance with the Code of Corporate Governance is that of the Board of Directors of the company. Our responsibility is to review, to the extent where such compliance can be objectively verified, whether the Statement of Compliance reflects the status of the companys compliance with the provisions of the Code of Corporate Governance and report if it does not. A review is limited primarily to inquiries of the company personnel and review of various documents prepared by the company to comply with the Code. As part of our audit of financial statements we are required to obtain an understanding of the accounting and internal control systems sufficient to plan the audit and develop an effective audit approach. We are not carried out any special review of the internal control system to enable us to express an opinion as to whether the Boards statement on internal control covers all controls and the effectiveness of such internal controls. Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention, which causes us to believe that the Statement of Compliance does not appropriately reflect the companys status of compliance, in all material respects, with the best practices contained in the Code of Corporate Governance as applicable to the Company for the year ended June 30, 2004.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDED JUNE 30, 2004
1. LEGAL STATUS AND NATURE OF BUSINESS Al Meezan Mutual Fund Limited (the fund) was incorporated in Pakistan on July 13, 1995 as a public limited company under the Companies Ordinance, 1984 and is listed on the Karachi Stock Exchange. The fund was registered as an 'Investment Company' under the Investment Companies and Investment Advisers Rules, 1971. The Investment Companies and Investment Advisers Rules, 1971 have been repealed by the Non-Banking Finance Companies (Establishment and Regulation) Rules, 2003 (NBFC Rules). However, the said repeal does not affect the existing incorporation or registration or licence of an NBFC registered or licensed under any rules or notifications now repealed. The fund's registered office is on 4th Floor, Block C, Finance and Trade Centre, Shahrah-e-Faisal, Karachi. The object of the fund is to carry on the business of a closed-end mutual fund and to invest its assets in securities, which are listed or proposed to be listed on the stock exchanges. The fund has an agreement with Al Meezan Investment Management Limited, an associated undertaking, to provide investment advisory services. 2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with approved accounting standards as applicable in Pakistan and the requirements of Companies Ordinance, 1984. Approved accounting standards comprise of such International Accounting Standards as notified under the provisions of Companies Ordinance, 1984. Wherever, the requirements of the Companies Ordinance, 1984 or NBFC Rules, 2003 or directives issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SEC) differ with the requirements of these standards, the requirements of Companies Ordinance, 1984 or NBFC Rules, 2003 or the requirements of the said directives take precedence. 3. BASIS OF MEASUREMENT These financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention, except for investments which are stated at fair value. 4. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES 4.1 Investments - Held-to-maturity Investments with fixed maturity where management has both the intent and ability to hold to maturity, are classified as held-to-maturity. - Available-for-sale Investments which are intended to be held for an indefinite period but may be sold in response to the need for liquidity or changes in interest rates are classified as availablefor-sale. - Held for trading Investments which are acquired principally for the purpose of generating a profit from short term fluctuations in price or dealer's margin are classified as held for trading.

Annual Report 2 0 0 4

All investments are initially recognised at cost, being the fair value of the consideration given including acquisition charges associated with the investment. After initial recognition, investment which are classified as held for trading and available -for-sale are remeasured at fair value. Unrealised gains and losses on investments held for trading are recognised in income. Unrealised gains and losses on available-for-sale investments are recognised in equity until the investment is sold, collected or otherwise disposed off, or until the investment is determined to be impaired, at which time the cumulative gain or loss previously reported in equity is included in income. Investment classified as held-to-maturity are stated at amortised cost. Fair value of listed shares and listed term finance certificates is determined by reference to stock exchange quoted market prices at the close of business on balance sheet date. - Change in accounting estimate Commencing from the current year, the fund is valuing its term finance certificates by reference to stock exchange quoted market prices at the close of business on the balance sheet date, in accordance with section 2 (xxxiv) of NBFC Rules dated April 1, 2003. Previously, term finance certificates were valued using average bid prices received from different intermediaries. Had the fund not made this change, investments of the fund as at June 30, 2004 and net profit for the year ended June 30, 2004 would have been higher by Rs.374,000. 4.2 Taxation Current: The charge for current taxation, if any, in the financial statements is based on taxable income at the current rates of taxation after taking into account tax credits and tax rebates available, if any. No charge for current taxation is made in the financial statements if the company intends to distribute 90 percent or more of its current profit amongst its shareholders in accordance with the exemption available under clause 99 of part I of the Second Schedule to the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001. Deferred: The company accounts for deferred taxation arising on major timing differences, if any, by using the liability method. However, no provision was required as at June 30, 2004 and no assets existed as at that date. 4.3 Transactions with connected persons / related parties / associated undertakings The fund enters into transactions in the normal course of business with connected persons / related parties / associated undertaking. These transactions are priced on arm's length basis using comparable uncontrolled price method. 4.4 Revenue recognition Dividend income is stated net of zakat deduction thereon at source where leviable and is recorded at the time of closure of share transfer book of the company declaring the dividend.

FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT POLICIES 20.1 Market risk Market risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument will fluctuate as a result of changes in market prices. The value of investment may fluctuate due to changes in business cycles affecting the business of the company in which the investment is made, changes in business circumstances of the company, its business sector, industry and / or the economy in general. The investment adviser manages market risk by monitoring exposure on marketable securities by following the regulations laid down in the NBFC Rules, 2003. 20.2 Yield / interest rate risk Yield risk is the risk of decline in earnings due to adverse movement of the yield curve. Interest rate risk is the risk that the value of the financial instrument will fluctuate due to changes in the market interest rates. Sensitivity to interest rate risk arises from mismatches of financial assets and liabilities and offbalance sheet financial instruments that mature or reprice in a given period. The fund is not materially exposed to yield / interest rate risk as there are no interest bearing financial liabilities giving rise to mismatches of financial assets and financial liabilities. 20.3 Liquidity risk Liquidity risk is the risk that an enterprise will encounter difficulty in raising funds to meet commitments associated with financial instruments. The investment adviser manages liquidity risk by investing a major portion of the fund's assets in highly liquid shares. The fund is not materially exposed to liquidity risk. 535,606,109 1,615,821 2,057,536 17,913,726 184,121,327 57,477,188 156,338 477,876 7,734,457 1,360,683

20.4 Credit risk and concentration of credit risk Credit risk is the risk that one party to a financial instrument will fail to discharge an obligation and cause the other party to incur a financial loss. The fund manages its exposure to credit risk through settlement of its transactions through CDC and making payments on settlement date. Concentration of credit risk exists when changes in economic or industry factors similarly affect groups of counterparties whose aggregate credit exposure is significant in relation to the fund's total credit exposure. The fund's portfolio of financial instruments is broadly diversified and transactions are entered into with diverse creditworthy counterparties thereby mitigating any significant concentrations of credit risk. Sectorwise exposure of investments is given in notes 5.1 and 5.2. Maximum exposure to an individual scrip and industrial sector is restricted by the NBFC Rules, 2003, hence the fund is not exposed to major concentration of credit risk. 21. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS Fair value is the amount for which an asset could be exchanged, or a liability settled, between knowledgeable willing parties in an arm's length transactions. Consequently differences can arise between carrying values and their fair value estimates. Underlying the definition of fair value is the presumption that the fund is a going concern without any intention or requirement to curtail materially the scale of its operations or to undertake a transaction on adverse terms. Financial assets which are tradable in an open market are revalued at the market prices prevailing on the balance sheet date. The estimated fair value of all other financial assets and liabilities is considered not significantly different from book value as the items are short term in nature. 22. DATE OF AUTHORISATION FOR ISSUE These financial statements were authorised for issue by the board of directors of the fund on August 2, 2004. 23. NUMBERS OF EMPLOYEES The fund has no employees. 24. GENERAL Figures have been rounded off to the nearest rupee.
