On behalf of the Board of Directors, I have the pleasure to present to you the Annual Report of Suiwah Corporation Bhd.

FINANCIAL OVERVIEW During the financial year ended 31 May 2013, the Groups revenue stood at RM372.33 million which constitutes a 2.28% decrease over last years revenue of RM381.01 million.

However, the Groups profit before tax increased by 52.06% from RM12.62 million recorded in previous financial year to RM19.19 million for this financial year ended 31 May 2013. The satisfactory achievement in overall profit improvement was contributed by overall improved operational efficiency, continuous material cost down exercise and overheads cost savings during the financial year.

The total Groups bank short term borrowings stood at RM13.41 million as at 31 May 2013 compared with RM2.51 million as at 31 May 2012. The increases in bank short term borrowings were mainly due to finance the current development for the construction of Sunshine Bertam.

Directors responsibility for the financial statements The Directors of the Company are responsible for the preparation of financial statements so as to give a true and fair view in accordance with Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards, International Financial Reporting Standards and the requirements of the Companies Act 1965 in Malaysia. The directors are also responsible for such internal control as the directors determine is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditors responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We have conducted our audit in accordance with approved standards on auditing in Malaysia. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on our judgement, including the assessment of risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, we consider internal control relevant to the entitys preparation of financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entitys internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by the directors, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements give a true and fair view of the financial position of the Group and of the Company as at 31 May 2013 and of their financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards, International Financial Reporting Standards and the requirements of the Companies Act 1965 in Malaysia. Report on Other Legal And Regulatory Requirements In accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act 1965 in Malaysia, we also report the following: (a) In our opinion, the accounting and other records and the registers required by the Act to be kept by the Company and its subsidiaries of which we have acted as auditors have been properly kept in accordance with the provisions of the Act. (b) We have considered the financial statements and the auditors reports of all the subsidiaries of which we have not acted as auditors, which are indicated in Note18 to the financial statements, being financial statements that have been included in the consolidated financial statements. (c) We are satisfied that the financial statements of the subsidiaries that have been consolidated with the financial statements of the Company are in form and content appropriate and proper for the purposes of the preparation of the consolidated financial statements and we have received satisfactory information and explanations required by us for those purposes.

(d) The auditors reports on the financial statements of the subsidiaries were not subject to any qualification and did not include any comment required to be made under Section 174(3) of the Act. Other Reporting Responsibilities The supplementary information set out in Note 48 on page 109 is disclosed to meet the requirement of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad. The directors are responsible for the preparation of the supplementary information in accordance with Guidance on Special Matter No. 1, Determination of Realised and Unrealised Profits or Losses in the Context of Disclosure Pursuant to Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad Listing Requirements, as issued by the Malaysian Institute of Accountants ("MIA Guidance") and the directive of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 MAY 2013

1.

Corporate Information The Company is a public limited liability company, incorporated and domiciled in Malaysia and listed on the Main Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad ("Bursa Malaysia"). The registered office of the Company is located at No. 1-20-1 SUNTECH @ Penang Cybercity, Lintang Mayang Pasir 3, 11950 Bayan Baru, Penang. The principal activities of the Company are investment holding, provision of management services and letting of property. The principal activities of the subsidiaries, jointly controlled entity and associate are described in Notes 18, 19 and 20. There have been no significant changes in the nature of the principal activities during the financial year.

2. 2.1

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Basis of preparation The financial statements of the Group and of the Company have been prepared in accordance with Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards ("MFRS"), International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and the requirements of the Companies Act, 1965 in Malaysia. For all periods up to and including the year ended 31 May 2012, the Group and the Company prepared their financial statements in accordance with Financial Reporting Standards ("FRS") in Malaysia. These financial statements for the year ended 31 May 2013 are the first financial statements of the Group and the Company prepared in accordance with MFRS and MFRS 1: First-Time Adoption of Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards ("MFRS 1") has been applied. The financial statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis except those disclosed below in the accounting policies. The financial statements are presented in Ringgit Malaysia ("RM").

2.2

First-time adoption of Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards ("MFRS") In preparing their opening MFRS Statements of Financial Position as at 1 June 2011 (which is also the date of transition), the Group adjusted the amounts previously reported in financial statements prepared in accordance with FRS. An explanation of how the transition from FRS to MFRS has affected the Group's financial position is set out below. These notes include reconciliations of equity at the date of transition reported under FRS to those reported at the date of transition under MFRS. Exemptions Applied MFRS 1 allows first-time adopters certain exemptions from the retrospective application of certain MFRS. The Group has applied the following exemptions: (a) Business combinations MFRS 1 provides the option to apply MFRS 3 Business Combinations prospectively from the date of transition or from a specific date prior to the date of transition. This provides relief from full retrospective application of MFRS 3 which would require restatement of all business combinations prior to the date of transition. The Group has elected to apply MFRS 3 prospectively from the date of transition. In respect of acquisitions prior to the date of transition: Acquisition before date of transition The Group has elected to apply MFRS 3 prospectively from the date of transition. In respect of acquisitions prior to the date of transition, (i) (ii) The classification of former business combinations under FRS is maintained; There is no re-measurement of original fair values determined at the time of business combination (date of acquisition); and The carrying amount of goodwill recognised under FRSs is not adjusted.

2. 2.2

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) First-time adoption of Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards ("MFRS") (contd.) Exemptions Applied (contd.) (b) Property, plant and equipment The short term leasehold land and building of a subsidiary were revalued in March 2000 by a firm of professional valuers using the comparison cost method. The surplus arising from the revaluation had been credited to revaluation reserve in the prior year. The Group has continued to carry the short term leasehold land and building based on its revalued amount in March 2000 since the surplus based on the latest revaluation in July 2010 was immaterial. Upon transition to MFRS, the Group has elected to measure all its property, plant and equipment using the cost model under MFRS 116, Property, Plant and Equipment. At the date of transition to MFRS, the Group elected to regard the revalued amounts of leasehold land and buildings as at March 2000 as deemed cost at the date of revaluation as these amounts were broadly comparable to fair value at that date. The revaluation surplus of RM1,471,912 was transferred to retained earnings at the date of transition to MFRS. (c) Foreign currency translation reserve Under FRS, the Group recognised translation differences on foreign operations in a separate component of equity. Cumulative foreign currency translation differences for all foreign operations are deemed to be zero at the date of transition to MFRS. Accordingly, at the date of transition to MFRS, the cumulative foreign currency translation differences of RM1,519,551 were adjusted to retained earnings. (d) Estimates The estimates at 1 June 2011 and 31 May 2012 are consistent with those made for the same dates in accordance with FRS. The estimates used by the Group to present these amounts in accordance with MFRS reflect conditions at 1 June 2011, the date of transition to MFRS and as at 31 May 2012. The reconciliation of statements of financial position for comparative year and of statements of financial position at the date of transition reported under FRS, as restated to reflect the effect of prior year adjustments to those reported for those periods and at the date of transition under MFRS are provided below: FRS (as previously stated) RM Effect of adopting MFRS 1 RM

(i)

Inventory property (Note 15) The Group had previously recognised an impairment loss of RM2,034,809 on its land held for property development in the profit and loss of the Group to write down the cost of the land held for development of a subsidiary to its recoverable amount. During the financial year ended 31 May 2013, the management has engaged an external property valuer to review the estimated market value of the land held for property development. An error was noted in the estimates used to determine the asset's recoverable amount in prior year which had resulted in the impairment loss having been incorrectly recognised in prior year. Hence, a reversal of impairment loss is recognised through a prior year adjustment. The carrying amount is increased to its revised recoverable amount, not exceeding the original cost of the land held for property development. The comparative figures for the financial year ended 31 May 2011 and 31 May 2012 have been restated to correct this error.

(ii)

Investment in a jointly controlled entity (Note 19) The Group had previously classified its investment in unquoted shares outside Malaysia, at cost in an entity incorporated in India, Exora Technologies Private Limited as investment in an associate. The management has reassessed and concluded that this investment is to be accounted for in the consolidated financial statements as investment in a jointly controlled entity as the Group has joint control over the activities of the entity, where the entity's strategic financial and operating decisions require unanimous consent as set out in the contractual agreement. Hence, a reclassification is made through a prior year adjustment.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) First-time adoption of Malaysian Financial Reporting Standards ("MFRS") (contd.) First-time adoption of MFRS 107: Statement of Cash Flows In accordance with MFRS 107, cash and cash equivalents are held for the purpose of meeting short-term cash commitments (such as cash in hand, at banks and deposits with a maturity of three months or less) rather than investment. In the previous financial year, the Group designated its cash in hand and bank balances and all its deposits as cash and cash equivalents. The Group and the Company have applied this standard retrospectively. Consequently, certain comparative figures have been restated. The following are the reclassification effects to the notes to the statements of cash flows for the year ended 31 May 2013 arising from the change in accounting policy stated above: Effect of adopting MFRS 107 RM

The directors expect that the adoption of the above standards and interpretations will have no material impact on the financial statements in the period of initial application, except as discussed below: MFRS 3 Business Combinations (IFRS 3 Business Combinations issued by IASB in March 2004) and MFRS 127 Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements (IAS 27 as revised by IASB in December 2003) An entity shall apply these earlier versions of MFRS 3 and MFRS 127 only if the entity elected to do so as allowed in MFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements. The adoptions of these standards are not expected to have any significant impact to the Group and the Company. MFRS 9 Financial Instruments: Classification and Measurement MFRS 9 reflects the first phase of the work on the replacement of MFRS 139 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement and applies to classification and measurement of financial assets and financial liabilities as defined in MFRS 139 Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement. The adoption of the first phase of MFRS 9 will have an effect on the classification and measurement of the Group and the Companys financial assets. The Group and the Company will quantify the effect in conjunction with the other phases, when the final standard including all phases is issued.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Changes in accounting policies (contd.) MFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements MFRS 10 replaces part of MFRS 127 Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements that deals with consolidated financial statements and IC Interpretation 112 Consolidation - Special Purpose Entities. Under MFRS 10, an investor controls an investee when: (i) (ii) (iii) the investor has power over an investee, the investor has exposure, or rights, to variable returns from its involvement with the investee, and the investor has ability to use its power over the investee to affect the amount of the investor's returns.

Under MFRS 127 Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements, control was defined as the power to govern the financial and operating policies of an entity so as to obtain benefits from its activites. MFRS 10 includes detailed guidance to explain when an investor has control over the investee. MFRS 10 requires the investor to take into account all relevant facts and circumstaces. The Group is still assessing the impact of this standard. MFRS 11 Joint Arrangements MFRS 11 establishes the principles for classification and accounting for joint arrangements and supersedes MFRS 131, Interest in Joint Ventures. Under MFRS 11, a joint arrangement may be classified as joint venture or joint operation. Interest in joint venture will be accounted for using equity method whilst interest in joint operation will be accounted for using the applicable MFRSs relating to the underlying assets, liabilities, income and expense items arising from the joint operations. The Group is still assessing the impact of adoption of MFRS 11. MFRS 12 Disclosures of Interests in Other Entities MFRS 12 includes all disclosure requirements for interests in subsidiaries, joint arrangements, associates and structured entities. A number of new disclosures are required. This standard affects disclosures only and has no impact on the Groups financial position or performance. MFRS 13 Fair Value Measurement MFRS 13 establishes a single source of guidance under MFRSs for all fair value measurements. MFRS 13 does not change when an entity is required to use fair value, but rather provides guidance on how to measure fair value under MFRS when fair value is required or permitted. The Group is still assessing the impact of this standard. MFRS 127 Separate Financial Statements As a consequence of the new MFRS 10 and MFRS 12, MFRS 127 is limited to accounting for subsidiaries, jointly controlled entities and associates in separate financial statements. MFRS 128 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures As a consequence of the new MFRS 11 and MFRS 12, MFRS 128 is renamed as MFRS 128 Investments in Associates and Joint Ventures. This new standard describes the application of the equity method to investments in joint ventures in addition to associates.

2. 2.3 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies(contd.) Changes in accounting policies (contd.) Amendments to MFRS101: Presentation of Financial Statements (Annual Improvements 2009-2011 Cycle) The amendments to MFRS 101 change the grouping of items presented in other comprehensive income. Items that could be reclassified (or recycled) to profit or loss at a future point in time (for example, net loss or gain on availablefor-sale financial assets) would be presented separately from items which will never be reclassified (for example, actuarial gains and losses on defined benefit plans and revaluation of land and buildings). The amendment affects presentation only and has no impact on the Group's and the Companys financial position and performance. 2.4 Basis of consolidation The consolidated financial statements comprise the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries as at the reporting date. The financial statements of the subsidiaries used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements are prepared for the same reporting date as the Company. Consistent accounting policies are applied to like transactions and events in similar circumstances. All intra-group balances, income and expenses and unrealised gains and losses resulting from intra-group transactions are eliminated in full. Acquisitions of subsidiaries are accounted for by applying the purchase method. Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilities assumed in a business combination are measured initially at their fair values at the acquisition date. Adjustments to those fair values relating to previously held interests are treated as a revaluation and recognised in other comprehensive income. The cost of a business combination is measured as the aggregate of the fair values, at the date of exchange, of the assets given, liabilities incurred or assumed, and equity instruments issued, plus any costs directly attributable to the business combination. Any excess of the cost of business combination over the Groups share in the net fair value of the acquired subsidiarys identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities is recorded as goodwill on the statements of financial position. The accounting policy for goodwill is set out in Note 2.9. Any excess of the Groups share in the net fair value of the acquired subsidiarys identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities over the cost of business combination is recognised as income in profit or loss on the date of acquisition. When the Group acquires a business, embedded derivatives separated from the host contract by the acquiree are reassessed on acquisition unless the business combination results in a change in the terms of the contract that significantly modifies the cash flows that would otherwise be required under the contract. Subsidiaries are consolidated from the date of acquisition, being the date on which the Group obtains control, and continue to be consolidated until the date that such control ceases. 2.5 Transactions with non-controlling interests Non-controlling interests represent the portion of profit or loss and net assets in subsidiaries not held directly or indirectly by the Group. Non-controlling interests are presented separately in the statements of comprehensive income of the Group and within equity in the statements of financial position of the Group, separately from parent shareholders equity. All total comprehensive income is proportionately allocated to non-controlling interests, even this results in the noncontrolling interests having a deficit balance. A change in the ownership interest of a subsidiary (without loss of control), is accounted for as transaction with owners in their capacity as owners. 2.6 Subsidiaries Subsidiaries are entities over which the Group has the power to govern the financial and operating policies so as to obtain benefits from its activities. In the Companys separate financial statements, investments in subsidiaries are accounted for at cost less any accumulated impairment losses. On disposal of such investments, the difference between net disposal proceeds and their carrying amounts is included in profit or loss.

2. 2.7

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Associates Associates are entities, not being a subsidiary or a joint venture, in which the Group has significant influence. An associate is equity accounted for from the date the Group obtains significant influence until the date the Group ceases to have significant influence over the associate. The Groups investments in associates are accounted for using the equity method. Under the equity method, the investment in associates is measured in the statements of financial position at cost plus post-acquisition changes in the Groups share of net assets of the associates. Goodwill relating to associates is included in the carrying amount of the investment. Any excess of the Groups share of the net fair value of the associates identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities over the cost of the investment is excluded from the carrying amount of the investment and is instead included as income in the determination of the Groups share of the associates profit or loss for the period in which the investment is acquired. When the Groups share of losses in an associate equals or exceeds its interest in the associate, the Group does not recognise further losses, unless it has incurred obligations or made payments on behalf of the associate. After application of the equity method, the Group determines whether it is necessary to recognise an additional impairment loss on the Groups investment in its associates. The Group determines at each reporting date whether there is any objective evidence that the investment in the associate is impaired. If this is the case, the Group calculates the amount of impairment as the difference between the recoverable amount of the associate and its carrying value and recognises the amount in profit or loss. The financial statements of the associates are prepared as of the same reporting date as the Company. Where necessary, adjustments are made to bring the accounting policies in line with those of the Group. In the Companys separate financial statements, investments in associates are stated at cost less any accumulated impairment losses. On disposal of such investments, the difference between net disposal proceeds and their carrying amounts is included in profit or loss.

2.8

Joint venture Jointly-controlled entity Jointly-controlled entities are those entities over whose activities the Group has joint control, established by contractual agreement and requiring unanimous consent for strategic financial and operating decisions. Joint ventures are accounted for in the consolidated financial statements using the equity method unless it is classified as held for sale (or included in a disposal group that is classified as held for sale). The consolidated financial statements include the Groups share of the profit or loss of the equity accounted joint ventures, after adjustments to align the accounting policies with those of the Group, from the date that joint control commences until the date that joint control ceases. When the Groups share of losses exceeds its interest in an equity accounted joint venture, the carrying amount of that interest (including any long-term investments) is reduced to nil and the recognition of further losses is discontinued except to the extent that the Group has an obligation or has made payments on behalf of the joint venture. In the Company's separate financial statements, investments in jointly controlled entities are stated at cost less any accumulated impairment losses, unless the investment is classified as held for sale. On disposal of such investment, the difference between net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount is included in profit or loss.

2. 2.9 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Intangible assets (a) Goodwill Goodwill is initially measured at cost. Following initial recognition, goodwill is measured at cost less any accumulated impairment losses. For the purpose of impairment testing, goodwill acquired is allocated, from the acquisition date, to each of the Groups cash-generating units that are expected to benefit from the synergies of the combination. The cash-generating unit to which goodwill has been allocated is tested for impairment annually and whenever there is an indication that the cash-generating unit may be impaired, by comparing the carrying amount of the cash-generating unit, including the allocated goodwill, with the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit. Where the recoverable amount of the cash-generating unit is less than the carrying amount, an impairment loss is recognised in the profit or loss. Impairment losses recognised for goodwill are not reversed in subsequent periods. Where goodwill forms part of a cash-generating unit and part of the operation within that cash-generating unit is disposed of, the goodwill associated with the operation disposed of is included in the carrying amount of the operation when determining the gain or loss on disposal of the operation. Goodwill disposed of in this circumstance is measured based on the relative fair values of the operations disposed of and the portion of the cash-generating unit retained. Goodwill and fair value adjustments arising on the acquisition of foreign operation on or after 1 January 2006 are treated as assets and liabilities of the foreign operations and are recorded in the functional currency of the foreign operations and translated in accordance with the accounting policy set out in Note 2.25. Goodwill and fair value adjustments which arose on acquisitions of foreign operation before 1 January 2006 are deemed to be assets and liabilities of the Company and are recorded in RM at the rates prevailing at the date of acquisition. (b) Other intangible assets Intangible assets acquired separately are measured initially at cost. Following initial acquisition, intangible assets are measured at cost less any accumulated amortisation and any accumulated impairment losses. Intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortised over the estimated useful lives and assessed for impairment whenever there is an indication that the intangible asset may be impaired. The amortisation period and the amortisation method are reviewed at least at each financial year-end. Changes in the expected useful life or the expected pattern of consumption of future economic benefits embodied in the asset is accounted for by changing the amortisation period or method, as appropriate, and are treated as changes in accounting estimates. The amortisation expense on intangible assets with finite lives is recognised in profit or loss. Gains or losses arising from derecognition of an intangible asset are measured as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and are recognised in profit or loss when the asset is derecognised. 2.10 Property, plant and equipment and depreciation All items of property, plant and equipment are initially recorded at cost. The cost of an item of property, plant and equipment is recognised as an asset if, and only if, it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item will flow to the Group and the cost of the item can be measured reliably.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies(contd.) Property, plant and equipment and depreciation (contd.) Subsequent to recognition, property, plant and equipment are measured at cost less accumulated depreciation and any accumulated impairment losses. When significant parts of property, plant and equipment are required to be replaced in intervals, the Group recognises such parts as individual assets with specific useful lives and depreciation, respectively. Likewise, when a major inspection is performed, its cost is recognised in the carrying amount of the plant and equipment as a replacement if the recognition criteria are satisfied. All other repair and maintenance costs are recognised in profit or loss as incurred. Short-term leasehold land Long-term leasehold apartment Buildings Plant and machinery Office equipment, renovation, furniture and fittings Computers Motor vehicles 5% - 6% 1.27% 2% - 18% 10% - 20% 10% - 20% 20% - 33.3% 10% - 20%

Capital work-in-progress are not depreciated as these assets are not yet available for use. The carrying values of property, plant and equipment are reviewed for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. The residual value, useful life and depreciation method are reviewed at each financial year-end, and adjusted prospectively, if appropriate. An item of property, plant and equipment is derecognised upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected from its use or disposal. Any gain or loss on derecognition of the asset is included in profit or loss in the year the asset is derecognised. 2.11 Investment properties Investment properties are measured at cost model which is to measure investment properties at cost less accumulated depreciation and any accumulated impairment losses. Depreciation is computed on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows: Buildings 1% - 2%

A property interest under an operating lease is classified and accounted for as an investment property on a propertyby-property basis when the Group holds it to earn rentals or for capital appreciation or both. Any such property interest under an operating lease classified as an investment property is carried at fair value. Investment properties are derecognised when either they have been disposed of or when the investment property is permanently withdrawn from use and no future economic benefit is expected from its disposal. Any gain or loss on the retirement or disposal of an investment property is recognised in profit or loss in the year of retirement or disposal. Transfers are made to or from investment property only when there is a change in use. During the financial year ended 31 May 2012, the investment property of the Group has been transferred to property, plant and equipment and property development cost as set out in Note 13, 14 & 15(b) and is accounted for in accordance with the accounting policy set out in Note 2.10 and 2.12 respectively.

2. 2.12 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Inventory property Property acquired or being constructed for sale in the ordinary course of business, rather than to be held for rental or capital appreciation, is held as inventory property and is measured at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of the business, based on market prices at the reporting date and discounted for the time value of money if material, less costs to completion and the estimated costs of sale. The cost of inventory property recognised in profit or loss on disposal is determined with reference to the specific costs incurred on the property sold and an allocation of any non-specific costs based on the relative size of the property sold. One of its subsidiaries commenced its development activities in the financial year ended 31 May 2012. As a result, a portion of its investment property recognised prior to financial year ended 31 May 2012 was transferred to property development cost. The summary of the comparative figures are presented in Note 14 and 15(b). 2.13 Impairment of non-financial assets The Group assesses at each reporting date whether there is an indication that an asset may be impaired. If any such indication exists, or when an annual impairment assessment for an asset is required, the Group makes an estimate of the assets recoverable amount. An assets recoverable amount is the higher of an assets fair value less costs to sell and its value in use. For the purpose of assessing impairment, assets are grouped at the lowest levels for which there are separately identifiable cash flows (cash-generating units (CGU)). In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset. Where the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its recoverable amount, the asset is written down to its recoverable amount. Impairment losses recognised in respect of a CGU or groups of CGUs are allocated first to reduce the carrying amount of any goodwill allocated to those units or groups of units and then, to reduce the carrying amount of the other assets in the unit or groups of units on a pro-rata basis. Impairment losses are recognised in profit or loss except for assets that are previously revalued where the revaluation was taken to other comprehensive income. In this case the impairment is also recognised in other comprehensive income up to the amount of any previous revaluation. An assessment is made at each reporting date as to whether there is any indication that previously recognised impairment losses may no longer exist or may have decreased. A previously recognised impairment loss is reversed only if there has been a change in the estimates used to determine the assets recoverable amount since the last impairment loss was recognised. If that is the case, the carrying amount of the asset is increased to its recoverable amount. That increase cannot exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined, net of depreciation, had no impairment loss been recognised previously. Such reversal is recognised in profit or loss unless the asset is measured at revalued amount, in which case the reversal is treated as a revaluation increase. Impairment loss on goodwill is not reversed in a subsequent period. 2.14 Financial assets Financial assets are recognised in the statements of financial position when, and only when, the Group and the Company become a party to the contractual provisions of the financial instrument. When financial assets are recognised initially, they are measured at fair value, plus, in the case of financial assets not at fair value through profit or loss, directly attributable transaction costs.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Financial assets (contd.) The Group and the Company determine the classification of their financial assets at initial recognition, and the categories include financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, loans and receivables, held-to-maturity investments and available-for-sale financial assets. (a) Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss Financial assets are classified as financial assets at fair value through profit or loss if they are held for trading or are designated as such upon initial recognition. Financial assets held for trading are derivatives (including separated embedded derivatives) or financial assets acquired principally for the purpose of selling in the near term. Subsequent to initial recognition, financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are measured at fair value. Any gains or losses arising from changes in fair value are recognised in profit or loss. Net gains or net losses on financial assets at fair value through profit or loss do not include exchange differences, interest and dividend income. Exchange differences, interest and dividend income on financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are recognised separately in profit or loss as part of other losses or other income. Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss could be presented as current or non-current. Financial assets that is held primarily for trading purposes are presented as current whereas financial assets that is not held primarily for trading purposes are presented as current or non-current based on the settlement date. (b) Loans and receivables Financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market are classified as loans and receivables. Subsequent to initial recognition, loans and receivables are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Gains and losses are recognised in profit or loss when the loans and receivables are derecognised or impaired, and through the amortisation process. Loans and receivables are classified as current assets, except for those having maturity dates later than 12 months after the reporting date which are classified as non-current. (c) Held-to-maturity investments Financial assets with fixed or determinable payments and fixed maturity are classified as held-to-maturity when the Group has the positive intention and ability to hold the investment to maturity. Subsequent to initial recognition, held-to-maturity investments are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Gains and losses are recognised in profit or loss when the held-to-maturity investments are derecognised or impaired, and through the amortisation process. Held-to-maturity investments are classified as non-current assets, except for those having maturity within 12 months after the reporting date which are classified as current. (d) Available-for-sale financial assets Available-for-sale financial assets are financial assets that are designated as available for sale or are not classified in any of the three preceding categories. After initial recognition, available-for-sale financial assets are measured at fair value. Any gains or losses from changes in fair value of the financial assets are recognised in other comprehensive income, except that impairment losses, foreign exchange gains and losses on monetary instruments and interest calculated using the effective interest method are recognised in profit or loss. The cumulative gain or loss previously recognised in other comprehensive income is reclassified from equity to profit or loss as a reclassification adjustment when the financial asset is derecognised. Interest income calculated using the effective interest method is recognised in profit or loss.

2. 2.14 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Financial assets (contd.) (d) Available-for-sale financial assets (contd.) Dividends on an available-for-sale equity instrument are recognised in profit or loss when the Groups and the Company's right to receive payment is established. Investments in equity instruments whose fair value cannot be reliably measured are measured at cost less impairment loss. Available-for-sale financial assets are classified as non-current assets unless they are expected to be realised within 12 months after the reporting date. A financial asset is derecognised when the contractual right to receive cash flows from the asset has expired. On derecognition of a financial asset in its entirety, the difference between the carrying amount and the sum of the consideration received and any cumulative gain or loss that had been recognised in other comprehensive income is recognised in profit or loss. Regular way purchases or sales are purchases or sales of financial assets that require delivery of assets within the period generally established by regulation or convention in the marketplace concerned. All regular way purchases and sales of financial assets are recognised or derecognised on the trade date i.e., the date that the Group and the Company commit to purchase or sell the asset. 2.15 Impairment of financial assets The Group and the Company assess at each reporting date whether there is any objective evidence that a financial asset is impaired. (a) Trade and other receivables and other financial assets carried at amortised cost To determine whether there is objective evidence that an impairment loss on financial assets has been incurred, the Group and the Company consider factors such as the probability of insolvency or significant financial difficulties of the debtor and default or significant delay in payments. For certain categories of financial assets, such as trade receivables, assets that are assessed not to be impaired individually are subsequently assessed for impairment on a collective basis based on similar risk characteristics. Objective evidence of impairment for a portfolio of receivables could include the Groups and the Company's past experience of collecting payments, an increase in the number of delayed payments in the portfolio past the average credit period and observable changes in national or local economic conditions that correlate with default on receivables. If any such evidence exists, the amount of impairment loss is measured as the difference between the assets carrying amount and the present value of estimated future cash flows discounted at the financial assets original effective interest rate. The impairment loss is recognised in profit or loss. The carrying amount of the financial asset is reduced by the impairment loss directly for all financial assets with the exception of trade receivables, where the carrying amount is reduced through the use of an allowance account. When a trade receivable becomes uncollectible, it is written off against the allowance account. If in a subsequent period, the amount of the impairment loss decreases and the decrease can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment was recognised, the previously recognised impairment loss is reversed to the extent that the carrying amount of the asset does not exceed its amortised cost at the reversal date. The amount of reversal is recognised in profit or loss.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Impairment of financial assets (contd.) (b) Available-for-sale financial assets Significant or prolonged decline in fair value below cost, significant financial difficulties of the issuer or obligor, and the disappearance of an active trading market are considerations to determine whether there is objective evidence that investment securities classified as available-for-sale financial assets are impaired. If an available-for-sale financial asset is impaired, an amount comprising the difference between its cost (net of any principal payment and amortisation) and its current fair value, less any impairment loss previously recognised in profit or loss, is transferred from equity to profit or loss. Impairment losses on available-for-sale equity investments are not reversed in profit or loss in the subsequent periods. Increase in fair value, if any, subsequent to impairment loss is recognised in other comprehensive income. For available-for-sale debt investments, impairment losses are subsequently reversed in profit or loss if an increase in the fair value of the investment can be objectively related to an event occurring after the recognition of the impairment loss in profit or loss.

2.16

Financial liabilities Financial liabilities are classified according to the substance of the contractual arrangements entered into and the definitions of a financial liability. Financial liabilities, within the scope of MFRS 139, are recognised in the statements of financial position when, and only when, the Group and the Company become a party to the contractual provisions of the financial instrument. Financial liabilities are classified as either financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss or other financial liabilities. (a) Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss include financial liabilities held for trading and financial liabilities designated upon initial recognition as at fair value through profit or loss. Financial liabilities held for trading include derivatives entered into by the Group and the Company that do not meet the hedge accounting criteria. Derivative liabilities are initially measured at fair value and subsequently stated at fair value, with any resultant gains or losses recognised in profit or loss. Net gains or losses on derivatives include exchange differences. The Group and the Company have not designated any financial liabilities as at fair value through profit or loss. (b) Other financial liabilities The Groups and the Company's other financial liabilities include trade payables, other payables and loans and borrowings. Trade and other payables are recognised initially at fair value plus directly attributable transaction costs and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Loans and borrowings are recognised initially at fair value, net of transaction costs incurred, and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Borrowings are classified as current liabilities unless the Group has an unconditional right to defer settlement of the liability for at least 12 months after the reporting date. For other financial liabilities, gains and losses are recognised in profit or loss when the liabilities are derecognised, and through the amortisation process.

2. 2.16 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Financial liabilities (contd.) A financial liability is derecognised when the obligation under the liability is extinguished. When an existing financial liability is replaced by another from the same lender on substantially different terms, or the terms of an existing liability are substantially modified, such an exchange or modification is treated as a derecognition of the original liability and the recognition of a new liability, and the difference in the respective carrying amounts is recognised in profit or loss. 2.17 Income taxes (i) Current tax Current tax assets and liabilities are measured at the amount expected to be recovered from or paid to the taxation authorities. The tax rates and tax laws used to compute the amount are those that are enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date. Current taxes are recognised in profit or loss except to the extent that the tax relates to items recognised outside profit or loss, either in other comprehensive income or directly in equity. (ii) Deferred tax Deferred tax is provided using the liability method on temporary differences at the reporting date between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts for financial reporting purposes. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all temporary differences, except: where the deferred tax liability arises from the initial recognition of goodwill or of an asset or liability in a transaction that is not a business combination and, at the time of the transaction, affects neither the accounting profit nor taxable profit or loss; and in respect of taxable temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries, associates and interests in joint ventures, where the timing of the reversal of the temporary differences can be controlled and it is probable that the temporary differences will not reverse in the foreseeable future.

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 MAY 2013

Deferred tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences, carry forward of unused tax credits and unused tax losses, to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporary differences, and the carry forward of unused tax credits and unused tax losses can be utilised except: where the deferred tax asset relating to the deductible temporary difference arises from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction that is not a business combination and, at the time of the transaction, affects neither the accounting profit nor taxable profit or loss; and in respect of deductible temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries, associates and interests in joint ventures, deferred tax assets are recognised only to the extent that it is probable that the temporary differences will reverse in the foreseeable future and taxable profit will be available against which the temporary differences can be utilised.

The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at each reporting date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profit will be available to allow all or part of the deferred tax asset to be utilised. Unrecognised deferred tax assets are reassessed at each reporting date and are recognised to the extent that it has become probable that future taxable profit will allow the deferred tax assets to be utilised. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply to the year when the asset is realised or the liability is settled, based on tax rates and tax laws that have been enacted or substantively enacted at the reporting date. Deferred tax relating to items recognised outside profit or loss is recognised outside profit or loss. Deferred tax items are recognised in correlation to the underlying transaction either in other comprehensive income or directly in equity and deferred tax arising from a business combination is adjusted against goodwill on acquisition. Deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities are offset, if a legally enforceable right exists to set off current tax assets against current tax liabilities and the deferred taxes relate to the same taxable entity and the same taxation authority.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Share capital and share issuance expenses An equity instrument is any contract that evidences a residual interest in the assets of the Group and the Company after deducting all of its liabilities. Ordinary shares are equity instruments. Ordinary shares are recorded at the proceeds received, net of directly attributable incremental transaction costs. Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Dividends on ordinary shares are recognised in equity in the period in which they are declared.

2.19

Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash at bank and on hand, demand deposits, and short-term, highly liquid investments with maturity of 3 months or less that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value. These also include bank overdrafts that form an integral part of the Groups and the Company's cash management.

2.20

Inventories Inventories are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost of inventories of merchandise held for resale is determined using the weighted average method. Cost of manufactured goods is determined using the first in, first out method. The cost of raw materials comprises costs of purchase. The cost of finished goods and work-in-progress comprise costs of raw materials, direct labour, other direct costs and appropriate proportions of manufacturing overheads based on normal operating capacity. The cost of properties held for sale comprises cost associated with the acquisition of land, direct costs and appropriate proportions of common costs. Cost is determined on a specific identification basis. Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business less the estimated costs necessary to make the sale.

2.21

Leases (i) As lessee Finance leases, which transfer to the Group substantially all the risks and rewards incidental to ownership of the leased item, are capitalised at the inception of the lease at the fair value of the leased asset or, if lower, at the present value of the minimum lease payments. Any initial direct costs are also added to the amount capitalised. Lease payments are apportioned between the finance charges and reduction of the lease liability so as to achieve a constant rate of interest on the remaining balance of the liability. Finance charges are charged to profit or loss. Contingent rents, if any, are charged as expenses in the periods in which they are incurred. Leased assets are depreciated over the estimated useful life of the asset. However, if there is no reasonable certainty that the Group will obtain ownership by the end of the lease term, the asset is depreciated over the shorter of the estimated useful life and the lease term. Operating lease payments are recognised as an expense in profit or loss on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The aggregate benefit of incentives provided by the lessor is recognised as a reduction of rental expense over the lease term on a straight-line basis. (ii) As lessor Leases where the Group and the Company retain substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the asset are classified as operating leases. Initial direct costs incurred in negotiating an operating lease are added to the carrying amount of the leased asset and recognised over the lease term on the same bases as rental income. The accounting policy for rental income is set out in Note 2.26 (v).

2. 2.22 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Borrowings costs Borrowing costs are capitalised as part of the cost of a qualifying asset if they are directly attributable to the acquisition, construction or production of that asset. Capitalisation of borrowing costs commences when the activities to prepare the asset for its intended use or sale are in progress and the expenditures and borrowing costs are incurred. Borrowing costs are capitalised until the assets are substantially completed for their intended use or sale. All other borrowing costs are recognised in profit or loss in the period they are incurred. Borrowing costs consist of interest and other costs that the Group and the Company incurred in connection with the borrowing of funds. 2.23 Provisions Provisions are recognised when the Group has a present obligation (legal or constructive) as a result of a past event, it is probable that an outflow of economic resources will be required to settle the obligation and the amount of the obligation can be estimated reliably. Provisions are reviewed at each reporting date and adjusted to reflect the current best estimate. If it is no longer probable that an outflow of economic resources will be required to settle the obligation, the provision is reversed. If the effect of the time value of money is material, provisions are discounted using a current pre tax rate that reflects, where appropriate, the risks specific to the liability. When discounting is used, the increase in the provision due to the passage of time is recognised as a finance cost. 2.24 Employee benefits (i) Short term benefits Wages, salaries, bonuses and social security contributions are recognised as an expense in the year in which the associated services are rendered by employees. Short term accumulating compensated absences such as paid annual leave are recognised when services are rendered by employees that increase their entitlement to future compensated absences. Short term non-accumulating compensated absences such as sick leave are recognised when the absences occur. (ii) Defined contribution plans Defined contribution plans are post-employment benefit plans under which the Group pays fixed contributions into separate entities or funds and will have no legal or constructive obligation to pay further contributions if any of the funds do not hold sufficient assets to pay all employee benefits relating to employee services in the current and preceding financial years. Such contributions are recognised as an expense in profit or loss as incurred. As required by law, companies in Malaysia make such contributions to the Employees Provident Fund ("EPF"). The Group's foreign subsidiary also make contributions to its respective country's statutory pension scheme. (iii) Share-based compensation The Company's Employee Share Options Scheme ("ESOS"), an equity-settled, share-based compensation plan, allows the Group's employees to acquire ordinary shares of the Company. The total fair value of share options granted to employees is recognised as an employee cost with a corresponding increase in the share option reserve within equity over the vesting period and taking into account the probability that the options will vest. The fair value of share options is measured at grant date, taking into account, if any, the market vesting conditions upon which the options were granted but excluding the impact of any non-market vesting conditions. Non-market vesting conditions are included in assumptions about the number of options that are expected to become exercisable on vesting date. At each reporting date, the Group revises its estimates of the number of options that are expected to become exercisable on vesting date. It recognises the impact of the revision of original estimates, if any, in profit or loss, and a corresponding adjustment to equity over the remaining vesting period. The equity amount is recognised in the share option reserve until the option is exercised, upon which it will be transferred to share premium, or until the option expires, upon which it will be transferred directly to retained earnings. The proceeds received net of any directly attributable transaction costs are credited to equity when the options are exercised.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Foreign currencies (i) Functional and presentation currency The individual financial statements of each entity in the Group are measured using the currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates ("the functional currency"). The financial statements of the Group and of the Company are presented in Ringgit Malaysia ("RM"), which is also the Company's functional currency. (ii) Foreign currency transactions In preparing the financial statements of the individual entities, transactions in currencies other than the entity's functional currency (foreign currencies) are recorded in the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions. At each reporting date, monetary items denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the rates prevailing on the reporting date. Non-monetary items carried at fair value that are denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the rates prevailing on the date when the fair value was determined. Non-monetary items that are measured in terms of historical cost in a foreign currency are not translated. Exchange differences arising on the settlement of monetary items, and on the translation of monetary items, are included in profit or loss for the period except for exchange differences arising on monetary items that form part of the Group's net investment in foreign operation. These are initially taken directly to the foreign currency reserve within equity until the disposal of the foreign operations, at which time they are recognised in profit or loss. Exchange differences arising from on monetary items that form part of the Groups net investment in foreign operation, where that monetary item is denominated in a currency other than the functional currency of either the reporting entity or the foreign operation are recognised in profit or loss in the Companys separate financial statements or the individual financial statements of the foreign operation, as appropriate. Exchange differences arising on the translation of non-monetary items carried at fair value are included in profit or loss for the period except for the differences arising on the translation of non-monetary items in respect of which gains and losses are recognised directly in equity. Exchange differences arising from such non-monetary items are also recognised directly in equity. (iii) Foreign operations The results and financial position of foreign operations that have a functional currency different from the presentation currency of the consolidated financial statements are translated into RM as follows: Assets and liabilities for each statement of financial position presented are translated at the closing rate prevailing at the reporting date; Income and expenses for each statement of comprehensive income are translated at average exchange rates for the year, which approximate the exchange rates at the dates of the transactions; and All resulting exchange differences are taken to the foreign currency translation reserve within equity.

Goodwill and fair value adjustments arising on the acquisition of foreign operations on or after 1 January 2006 are treated as assets and liabilities of the foreign operations and are recorded in the functional currency of the foreign operations and translated at the closing rate at the reporting date. Goodwill and fair value adjustments which arose on the acquisition of foreign subsidiaries before 1 January 2006 are deemed to be assets and liabilities of the parent company and are recorded in RM at the rates prevailing at the date of acquisition.

2. 2.26 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (contd.) Revenue recognition Revenue is recognised to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Group and the revenue can be reliably measured. The following specific recognition criteria must also be met before revenue is recognised: (i) Sale of goods Revenue is recognised net of sales taxes and upon transfer of significant risks and rewards of ownership to the buyer. Revenue is not recognised to the extent where there are significant uncertainties regarding recovery of the consideration due, associated costs or the possible return of goods. (ii) Sale of completed property A property is regarded as sold when the significant risks and returns have been transferred to the buyer, which is normally on unconditional exchange of contracts. For conditional exchanges, sales are recognised only when all the significant conditions are satisfied. (iii) Dividend income Dividend income is recognised when the Group's right to receive payment is established. (iv) Management fees Management fees are recognised when services are rendered. (v) Rental income Rental income is recognised on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. The aggregate cost of incentives provided to lessees is recognised as a reduction of rental income over the lease term on a straightline basis. (vi) Interest income Interest income is recognised on an accrual basis using the effective interest method. (vii) Revenue on award credits Revenue on award credits is recognised based on the number of award credits that have been redeemed in exchange for free or discounted goods, relative to the total number of award credits expected to be redeemed. 2.27 Government grant Government grant is recognised at its fair value where there is reasonable assurance that the grant will be received and all conditions attached will be met. Where the grant relates to an asset, the fair value is recognised as deferred capital grant in the statements of financial position and is amortised to the statements of comprehensive income over the expected useful life of the relevant asset by equal annual instalments. Grant contributed towards the acquisition of plant and equipment is deducted from the cost of those assets. 2.28 Land use rights Land use rights are initially measured at cost. Following initial recognition, land use rights are measured at cost less accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses. The land use rights are amortised over the lease term of 6 years.

Significant Accounting Judgements and Estimates The preparation of the financial statements of the Group and of the Company requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities at the reporting date. However, uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could result in outcomes that could require a material adjustment to the carrying amount of the asset or liability affected in the future.

3.1

Judgements made in applying accounting policies In the process of applying the Groups accounting policies, management has made the following judgements, apart from those involving estimations, which have the most significant effect on the amounts recognised in the financial statements: (i) Classification of property The Group has developed certain criteria based on MFRS 140: Investment Property in making judgement whether a property qualifies as an investment property. Investment property is a property held to earn rentals or for capital appreciation or both. The Company has leased out its building to a subsidiary as a supermarket and departmental store and accordingly the building is classified as investment property in the Company's financial statements. The building is classified as property, plant and equipment in the Group's financial statements as it is held for use in the supply of goods and services. Property that is held for sale in the ordinary course of business is classified as inventory property. (ii) Operating lease commitments the Company as a lessor The Company has entered into property leases with a subsidiary on its investment properties. The Company has determined that it retains all the significant risks and rewards of ownership of these properties which are leased out as operating leases.

3.2

Key sources of estimation uncertainty The key assumptions concerning the future and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the reporting date that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year are discussed below. (i) Impairment of goodwill The Group determines whether goodwill are impaired at least on an annual basis. This requires an estimation of the value-in-use of the cash-generating units ("CGU") to which goodwill are allocated. Estimating a valuein-use amount requires management to make an estimate of the expected future cash flows from the CGU and also to choose a suitable discount rate in order to calculate the present value of those cash flows. The carrying amount of the goodwill as at 31 May 2013 of the Group was RM4,665,045 (2012: RM4,665,045). Further details are disclosed in Note 22. (ii) Deferred tax assets Deferred tax assets are recognised for all unused tax losses and unabsorbed capital allowances to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the losses and capital allowances can be utilised. Significant management judgement is required to determine the amount of deferred tax assets that can be recognised, based upon the likely timing and level of future taxable profits together with future tax planning strategies. The total carrying value of unrecognised tax losses and capital allowances of the Group is disclosed in Note 34. (iii) Depreciation of plant and machinery The cost of plant and machinery for the manufacturing of flexible printed circuit boards of the Group are depreciated on a straight-line basis over the assets' useful lives. Management estimates the useful lives of these plant and machinery to be within 5 to 8 years. These are common life expectancies applied in the precisions industry. Changes in the expected level of usage and technological developments could impact the economic useful lives and the residual values of these assets, therefore future depreciation charges could be revised.

3. 3.2 Significant Accounting Judgements and Estimates (contd.) Key sources of estimation uncertainty (contd.) (iv) Impairment of financial assets The Group and the Company assess at each reporting date whether there is any objective evidence that a financial asset is impaired. To determine whether there is objective evidence of impairment, the Group and the Company consider factors such as the probability of insolvency or significant financial difficulties of the debtor and default or significant delay in payments. Where there is objective evidence of impairment, the amount and timing of future cash flows are estimated based on historical loss experience for assets with similar credit risk characteristics. The carrying amount of the Groups and the Company's loans and receivables at the reporting date is disclosed in Note 24. (v) Deferred revenue The Group allocates the consideration received from the sale of goods to the goods sold and the points issued under its loyalty programme. The consideration allocated to the points issued is measured at their fair value. The carrying amount of deferred revenue allocated to the award credits at the reporting date was RM1,316,804 (2012: RM1,277,852). (vi) Impairment loss on investments in subsidiaries and associate The Company has recognised impairment loss in respect of investments in subsidiaries and associate. The Company carried out the impairment test based on the estimation of the higher of the value-in-use or the fair value less cost to sell of the cash-generating units ("CGU") to which the investments in subsidiaries and associate belong to. Estimating the recoverable amount requires the Company to make an estimate of the expected future cash flows from the CGU and also to determine a suitable discount rate in order to calculate the present value of those cash flows. The carrying amount at the reporting date for investments in subsidiaries and associate is disclosed in Notes 18 and 20.

The subsidiary has subsequently applied to MIDA to vary one of its conditions and its application has been approved by MIDA. The subsidiary has submitted an application to fix its "Production Date" to the Ministry of International Trade and Industry ("MITI") and its application is still subject to MITI's approval as at 31 May 2013. Consequently, the subsidiarys chargeable income as at 31 May 2013 continues to be calculated on the basis that it is subject to income tax at a rate of 25% (2012: 25%). Subsequent to 31 May 2013, MITI has approved the subsidiary's application and fixed 1 June 2009 as the "Production Date" of the subsidiary where 100% of its statutory income on "Fine Resolution Interconnect Flexible Printed Circuit Boards" (Pitch < 3mm) will be tax exempted for a period of 5 years from 1 June 2009 to 31 May 2014. Further details are disclosed in Note 46. (ii) Another subsidiary has been accorded the Multimedia Super Corridor ("MSC") Status and was granted an extention of pioneer status for a further period of 5 years from 10 February 2008 to 9 February 2013. The chargeable income arising from the pioneer activity is 100% tax exempt during the pioneer status period. The pioneer status has expired on 9 February 2013 and consequently the subsidiarys income tax is calculated at a rate of 25% of the assessable profit generated from 10 February 2013 onwards. 7,696,178 1,924,045 1,503,126 (1,757,541) (9,559) 1,660,071 2,706,823 676,706 882,794 394 1,559,894

Earnings Per Share (a) Basic Basic earnings per share amounts are calculated by dividing profit for the year attributable to ordinary equity holders of the Company by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the financial year, excluding treasury shares held by the Company.

2012 RM 7,555,342 57,354,148 13.17

For the purpose of calculating diluted earnings per share, the profit for the year attributable to ordinary equity holders of the Company and the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the financial year, excluding treasury shares held by the Company have been adjusted for the dilutive effects of all potential ordinary shares, i.e. Employee Share Options Scheme ("ESOS"). The effect on the basic earnings per share for the financial year arising from the assumed conversion of the existing ESOS was anti-dilutive. The ESOS has lapsed on 23 April 2012 and all the unexercised options shall automatically lapse upon the expiry of the option period. Accordingly, the diluted earnings per share for the current financial year are presented as equal to basic earnings per share.

The short-term leasehold land and building of a subsidiary in the manufacturing segment was revalued on 23 July 2010 using the comparison cost method by a firm of professional valuers. However, the Group has continued to carry the short-term leasehold land and building based on its earlier revalued amount in March 2000 since the surplus based on the latest revaluation was immaterial. Upon transition to MFRS, the subsidiary has elected to measure all its property, plant and equipment using the cost model under MFRS 116, Property, Plant and Equipment. At the date of transition to MFRS, the subsidiary elected to regard the revalued amounts of leasehold land and buildings as at March 2000 as deemed cost at the date of revaluation as these amounts were broadly comparable to fair value at that date. The revaluation surplus was transferred to retained earnings at the date of transition to MFRS.

2012 RM 4,665,045

Impairment test on goodwill (a) Allocation of goodwill Goodwill has been allocated to the Group's cash-generating units ("CGU") identified according to the business segment and relates to the manufacturing and designing of flexible printed circuits boards as follows: 2013 RM Manufacturing (b) Key assumptions used in value-in-use ("VIU")calculations The recoverable amount of the CGU is determined based on VIU calculations using cash flow projections based on financial forecasts approved by management covering a 5-year period. The following describes each key assumption on which management has based its cash flow projection for VIU calculations of CGU to undertake impairment testing of goodwill: (i) Budgeted gross margin The basis used to determine the value assigned to the budgeted gross margin is the average gross margin achieved in the year immediately before the budgeted year adjusted for expected efficiency improvement, market and economic conditions and internal resource efficiency, where applicable. (ii) Growth rate The weighted average growth rate used is consistent with the long term average growth rate for the relevant industry. The forecasted growth rate used to extrapolate cash flows beyond the five-year period is 3.9% (2012: 3.6%). (iii) Discount rate The discount rate used is on a basis that reflects specific risks relating to the relevant business segment. The pre-tax discount rate applied to the cash flow projections is 10% (2012: 9%) Sensitivity to changes in assumptions With regard to the assessment of value-in-use of the CGU, management believes that no reasonable change in any of the above key assumptions would cause the carrying value of the CGU to materially exceed its recoverable amount. 4,665,045 2012 RM 4,665,045

The Company did not elect for the irrevocable option to disregard the revised 108 balance. Accordingly, during the transitional period, the Company may utilise the credit in the revised 108 balance as at 31 May 2013 to distribute cash dividend payments to ordinary shareholders as defined under the Finance Act 2007. As at 31 May 2013, the Company has sufficient tax credit in the revised 108 balance to pay franked dividends amounting to RM20,043,024 (2012: RM23,484,213) out of it retained earnings.

Revaluation surplus relates to revaluation of property, plant and equipment in prior years. Upon transition to MFRS, the Group elected to measure all its property, plant and equipment using cost model. Accordingly, the revaluation surplus was transferred to retained earnings on date of transition to MFRS.

Deferred tax assets have not been recognised in respect of the following items: Group 2013 RM Unused tax losses Unabsorbed capital allowances Other deductible temporary differences 3,393,696 2,742,312 23,954 6,159,962

2012 RM 2,151,719 4,614,461 24,716 6,790,896

The Group and the Company classify fair value measurement using a fair value hierarchy that reflects the significance of the inputs used in making the measurement. The fair value hierarchy has the following levels: Level 1 :Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Level 2 :Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e., as prices) or indirectly (i.e., derived from prices). Level 3 :Inputs for the assets and liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs). (b) Financial instruments that are not carried at fair value and whose carrying amounts are reasonable approximation of fair value The following are classes of financial instruments that are not carried at fair value and whose carrying amounts are reasonable approximation of fair value: Note Trade receivables Other receivables Loan receivables Bank borrowings Trade payables Other payables 24 24 26 33 36 36

The carrying amounts of these financial assets and liabilities are reasonable approximation of fair values, either due to their short-term nature or that they are floating rate instruments that are re-priced to market interest rates on or near the reporting date. The carrying amounts of the bank borrowings are reasonable approximations of fair values due to the insignificant impact of discounting. The fair values of bank borrowings are estimated by discounting expected future cash flows at market incremental lending rate for similar types of lending, borrowing or leasing arrangements at the reporting date.

42. Financial Risk Management Objectives and Policies The Group and the Company are exposed to financial risks arising from their operations and the use of financial instruments. The key financial risks include interest rate risk, foreign currency risk, liquidity risk, credit risk and market price risk. The Board of Directors reviews and agrees policies and procedures for the management of these risks. The Audit Committee provides independent oversight to the effectiveness of the risk management process. It is, and has been throughout the current and previous financial year, the Groups policy that no derivatives shall be undertaken except for the use as hedging instruments where appropriate and cost-efficient. The Group and the Company do not apply hedge accounting. The following sections provide details regarding the Groups and the Companys exposure to the above-mentioned financial risks and the objectives, policies and processes for the management of these risks. (a) Interest rate risk Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of the Groups and the Companys financial instruments will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. As the Group has no significant interest-bearing financial assets, the Group's income and operating cash flows are substantially independent of changes in market interest rates. The Group's interest-bearing financial assets are mainly short term in nature and have been mostly placed in deposits in licensed banks. The Group's interest rate risk arises primarily from interest-bearing borrowings. Borrowings at floating rates expose the Group to cash flow interest rate risk. Borrowings obtained at fixed rates expose the Group to fair value interest rate risk. The Group manages its interest rate exposure by maintaining a mix of fixed and floating rate borrowings. Sensitivity analysis for interest rate risk At the reporting date, if interest rates had been 10 basis points lower/higher, with all other variables held constant, the Groups profit net of tax would have been RM14,892 (2012: RM4,923) higher/lower, arising mainly as a result of lower/higher interest expense on floating rate loans and borrowings. The assumed movement in basis points for interest rate sensitivity analysis is based on the currently observable market environment. (b) Foreign currency risk Foreign currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates. Some of the Groups subsidiaries have transactional currency exposures arising from sales or purchases that are denominated in a currency other than the respective functional currencies of the Groups subsidiaries, primarily RM. The foreign currencies in which these transactions are denominated are mainly US Dollars (USD). Approximately 15% (2012: 33%) of the Groups subsidiaries sales are denominated in foreign currencies. The Groups subsidiaries trade receivable and trade payable balances at the reporting date have similar exposures. The Group also holds cash and cash equivalents denominated in foreign currencies for working capital purposes. At the reporting date, such foreign currency balances (mainly in USD) amounted to RM20,532,718 (2012: RM13,586,310) for the Group.

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 MAY 2013

Sensitivity analysis for foreign currency risk The following table demonstrates the sensitivity of the Groups profit net of tax to a reasonably possible change in the USD exchange rates against the respective functional currencies of the Group entities, with all other variables held constant.

Financial Risk Management Objectives and Policies (contd.) (c) Liquidity risk Liquidity risk is the risk that the Group or the Company will encounter difficulty in meeting financial obligations due to shortage of funds. The Groups and the Companys exposure to liquidity risk arises primarily from mismatches of the maturities of financial assets and liabilities. The Groups and the Companys objective is to maintain a balance between continuity of funding and flexibility through the use of stand-by credit facilities. The Group and the Company manage their debt maturity profile, operating cash flows and the availability of funding so as to ensure that all refinancing, repayment and funding needs are met. As part of its overall liquidity management, the Group and the Company maintain sufficient levels of cash or cash convertible investments to meet their working capital requirements. In addition, the Group and the Company strive to maintain available banking facilities of a reasonable level to its overall debt position. Furthermore, the Group and the Company are able to raise funds from both capital markets and financial institutions and balance its portfolio with combination of a mixture of short and long term fundings so as to achieve overall cost effectiveness. Analysis of financial instruments by remaining contractual maturities The table below summarises the maturity profile of the Groups and the Companys liabilities at the reporting date based on contractual undiscounted repayment obligations. 2013 Over one year RM

42. Financial Risk Management Objectives and Policies (contd.) (d) Credit risk Credit risk is the risk of loss that may arise on outstanding financial instruments should a counterparty default on its obligations. The Groups and the Companys exposure to credit risk arises primarily from trade and other receivables. For other financial assets (including investment securities, cash and bank balances and derivatives), the Group and the Company minimise credit risk by dealing exclusively with high credit rating counterparties. The Groups objective is to seek continual revenue growth while minimising losses incurred due to increased credit risk exposure. The Group trades only with recognised and creditworthy third parties. It is the Groups policy that all customers who wish to trade on credit terms are subject to credit verification procedures. In addition, receivable balances are monitored on an ongoing basis with the result that the Groups exposure to bad debts is not significant. For transactions that do not occur in the country of the relevant operating unit, the Group does not offer credit terms without the approval. (i) Exposure to credit risk At the reporting date, the Groups and the Companys maximum exposure to credit risk are represented by: (a) (b) The carrying amount of each class of financial assets recognised in the statements of financial position.

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 MAY 2013

A nominal amount of RM16,426,914 (2012: RM6,717,621) relating to corporate guarantees provided by the Company to financial institutions as securities for credit facilities granted to subsidiaries.

Information regarding credit enhancements for trade and other receivables are disclosed in Note 24. (ii) Credit risk concentration profile The Group determines concentrations of credit risk by monitoring the country sector profile of its trade receivables on an ongoing basis. The credit risk concentration profile of the Groups trade receivables at the reporting date are as follows: 2013 RM 17,052,605 1,277,345 316,150 2,505,158 1,155,525 22,306,783 % 77 6 1 11 5 100 2012 RM 18,659,314 1,754,885 1,451,156 283,870 746,091 2,324,998 25,220,314 % 74 7 6 1 3 9 100

(e)

Market price risk Market price risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of the Groups financial instruments will fluctuate because of changes in market prices (other than interest or exchange rates). The Group is exposed to equity price risk arising from its investment in quoted equity instruments. The quoted equity instruments in Malaysia are listed on Bursa Malaysia. These instruments are classified as availablefor-sale financial assets. The Group does not have exposure to commodity price risk.
