LETTER TO SHAREHOLDERS
As we expected, this past year continued to bring challenging conditions to the recreational marine industry. While signs of leveling and slow improvement are evident, the economic downturn persisted and demand for new boats remained soft. Competitors relied often on deep discounting to generate new boat sales, and the overall market for new boats experienced its lowest level of demand in more than 45 years. In the face of these difficult circumstances, Grand Banks Yachts reported annual net sales of $29.2 million for the fiscal year ended 30 June 2010, and a net loss of $7.5 million, or approximately $.08 per share. Although these results reflect the kind of continued decline that plagued our industry the previous two years, Company losses were mitigated by deliberate management actions to resize our businesses, reduce operating expenses and preserve cash. These included targeted retrenchments at our factory in Malaysia, and strategic cuts to our production schedule.

Despite revenue declines, Grand Banks continued to maintain prudent levels of liquidity at a time when heavy debt loads have been a crippling factor in many failures throughout our industry. These cash reserves have helped us forego desperate price-cutting tactics that can fundamentally damage a manufacturers long-term prospects for survival and prosperity. Instead, Grand Banks continued to position itself for success when the market inevitably improves. Management evaluated every aspect of Company operations to control costs, while working hard to make new progress on three critical fronts: new product development, greater manufacturing efficiency, and improved distribution strategies. I am happy to say that we closed the fiscal year having made strong progress in each area. NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT Despite the headwinds, new product development remains a priority for Grand Banks and a key component of our competitive advantage. Fiscal 2010 was another particularly strong year, with the introduction of three new models launched in markets around the world.

Perhaps the most anticipated new model was the 53 Aleutian RP. A distinct model from the Companys in-house development team, the 53RP was designed as a new, smaller Aleutian that would still provide a superior platform for extended, self-sufficient cruising. What emerged was an entirely new Aleutian capable of supporting a cruising couple or family on long voyages smaller in size but with the powerful presence customers expect from the series. Also in the Aleutian Series of yachts, our first 72SC delivered in May 2010 joined her sister RP model as the largest and most luxurious in our fleet. It is our first Aleutian to feature four staterooms plus crew quarters, as well as updated interior layouts and styling. Outside, this model is distinguished from the RP version and its step-down cockpit by an expansive single-level aft deck dining and living area. In the Eastbay Series, the Company launched its first 46SX at the Eurasia Boat Show in Istanbul this past February. This is the second GB model to feature the remarkable Zeus propulsion system with pod drives and a joystick control. With crew quarters and a three-cabin layout option, this new Eastbay was designed to take full advantage of the

customer in the coming months, and the first two US-bound 46SX boats already sold to excited buyers, we are confident that new model development will continue to drive sales and help build a stronger long-term position for Grand Banks relative to our competition. PRODUCTION IMPROVEMENTS In FY 2010 the Company made one of its biggest improvements to production efficiency in recent history, continuing our efforts to use this market slowdown to our long-term advantage. A production efficiency expert contracted by Grand Banks in FY 2009, has helped spearhead much of these improvements since being hired early this year as Vice President of Manufacturing. The most significant modification implemented by the production staff at our Malaysian facility was a major transition from a station-built to stage-built production process on all boats under 59 feet. Such a transformation brings numerous and noteworthy benefits such as improving production flow control, upgrading resource and manpower planning, boosting purchasing and scheduling proficiency, and enhancing our ability to deliver a finished yacht of the highest possible quality. The overall goal of efficiency measures like these and many others is to do more with less not just during this downturn, but as a matter of course at Grand Banks: we will aim to build our boats in fewer hours, while improving upon our already renowned level of quality.

DISTRIBUTION STRATEGIES Recreational marine dealers continue to face exceptionally tough conditions in todays economic climate. To bolster the strength of our distribution network and ensure our buyers enjoy a premium experience at the retail level, Grand Banks took action in key markets around the world. The Company signed two major new dealers in Florida and increased our footprint to 13 locations employing over 200 marine professionals in our busiest market territory, with HMY Yacht Sales along that states east coast and Galati Yacht Sales in the west and in Alabama. Both Galati and HMY bring tremendous expertise, integrity and customer commitment to their work: Galati Yacht Sales is the largest Five Star Re-Certified dealer in the marine industry today, and HMY is one of the largest and most comprehensive

yacht sales and service organizations in the world. In addition, the Company signed Walstrom Marine, a well-established, well-respected dealership in the US Great Lakes region, to represent Grand Banks in that territory. We also continued to build on our company-owned store program, which started late June 2009 with a single location on Australias Gold Coast. Since that time, GB Australia took five new boats for both retail orders and stock inventory, and firmly established itself among the top marine dealerships in this boater-centric region. The year ended with a move to a new location at Hope Islands Boardwalk Marina in SE Queensland, with an expanded office and staff in one of the Gold Coasts premier ocean front communities. Halfway around the world, in the US Pacific Northwest, Grand Banks launched a second company-owned store in a major marine market. By the years end Grand Banks Northwest had attracted the regions top salesmen to its staff, grabbed the attention of the boating community, secured numerous lucrative brokerage listings and managed to close a number of used and new boat sales to help quickly drive cash flows through the operation.

As much as I would like to tell you that the next year will be different that the recreational marine market will see a major recovery and boatbuilders will once again flourish such a turnaround does not appear to be imminent. Fragile economies in the U.S. and Europe (historically the largest marine markets in the world), low consumer confidence, high unemployment, scarcity of commercial and personal lending, and an overabundance of discounted new and brokerage boats all point to a slow turnaround for our industry. Nevertheless, Grand Banks enters the new fiscal year more strongly positioned to take on the challenges and uncertainties of the marketplace. As we execute against our strategies, we continue to operate without debt and with a healthy cash balance. Our plan for the coming year focuses on improving revenue and reducing operating expenses further as we try to gradually increase our rate of production. Needless to say, FY 2010 was a very challenging time for Grand Banks employees, but it was without question a year in which they should be extremely proud of our many accomplishments. Together we have demonstrated the resiliency of our Company and our brand and our ability to deal with some of the most severe challenges ever to face this industry. We are confident that the work we have done positions us to capture greater revenues, profits and market share when the economies improve in the United States and Europe and to establish more meaningful sales in emerging boating markets in Asia. On behalf of the entire team at Grand Banks Yachts, thank you for your investment and your continued support.

In reviewing and determining the remuneration packages of the CEO, the Executive Directors and the Groups senior executives, the RC considers the executives responsibilities, skills, expertise and contribution to the Groups performance and if the remuneration packages are competitive and sufficient to ensure that the Group is able to attract and retain executive talent. In line with Guideline 8.4 of the Code of Corporate Governance which encourages Long-term Incentive Schemes, the RC currently administers the Groups Limited Performance Incentive Plan which was approved by Shareholders at the EGM held on 14 July 2008 with the objective of attracting and retaining key employees of the Group whose contributions are essential to the long-term growth and profitability of the Group. The RC regularly utilizes external expert advice and data to assist in the evaluation of its compensation recommendations. None of the RC members or Directors is involved in deliberations in respect of any remuneration, compensation or any form of benefit to be granted to him or someone related to him. No Independent and non-Executive Directors have Service Agreements with the Group. They are paid Directors fees, which are determined by the Board based on the effort, time spent and responsibilities of the Directors.

STRATEGIC VISION COMMITTEE Jeffrey Stewart Bland Robert William Livingston Robert William Livingston II (Chairman) With respect to the Groups audit, the Audit Committee reviews the following: the scope of the independent auditors audit plan, the cost-effectiveness of the independent audit, the independent auditors reports and the significant financial reporting issues and judgements to assess the integrity of the Groups financial statements. The Committee has full access to and the cooperation of management to enable it to properly discharge its responsibilities. The Audit Committee has full discretion to invite any Director or executive officer to attend its meetings and has access to other outside resources to enable it to complete its duties. In performing its functions, the Audit Committee also reviews the assistance given by the Groups managers to the independent auditors. The internal and the external auditors also have unrestricted access to the Audit Committee. The Committee has reviewed the non-audit services provided by the external auditors and these services, in its opinion, would not affect the independence of the external auditors. The Committee recommends their re-appointment. INTERNAL CONTROL (Code of Corporate Governance Principle 12) The Board with the assistance of the Audit Committee ensures that the Group maintains an adequate system of internal controls to safeguard shareholders investments and the Groups assets. The internal controls provide reasonable but not absolute assurance that the Group will not be adversely affected by any event that could be reasonably foreseen as it strives to achieve its business objectives. Reviews and tests of the internal control procedures and systems are carried out by the internal auditor. The Board is thus satisfied with the adequacy of the Groups internal controls. INTERNAL AUDIT FUNCTION (Code of Corporate Governance Principle 13) During the year, Management recommended to the Board that the internal audit function be outsourced to an external organization for a variety of reasons. As a result, the Audit Committee conducted an exhaustive search process and selected such an independent firm prior to the end of the fiscal year. The internal audit firm reports to the Chairman of the Audit Committee and has unrestricted, direct access to the Audit Committee. The

The Strategic Vision Committee whose terms of reference are approved by the Board is comprised of one non-executive director, one independent director and one executive director. It meets at least once a year. The role of the Committee is to provide the Board with an objective and innovative view of the future of the boating industry and a comprehensive understanding of the global market opportunities available to the Company. The Committee draws from the experience of management in market research, product development, production, quality assurance, finance and customer service along with its own independent evaluation of market dynamics, trend analysis, public relations, economic and environmental factors in carrying out its duties and responsibilities. AUDIT COMMITTEE (Code of Corporate Governance Principle 11; Listing Manual Rule 1207(6)(b)) Michael Grenville Gray Roger Gaimster Langdale Jeffrey Stewart Bland (Chairman)

[ 2010 ANNUAL REPORT ]

The Audit Committee comprises three independent directors who are appropriately qualified to discharge their responsibilities and functions under the terms of reference approved by the Board. It meets at least four times a year. The Committee reviews the effectiveness of the Groups material internal controls including financial and operational controls, and risk management. It receives reports from the management, the internal and the external auditors and follows up on outstanding matters contained in those reports where appropriate. It reviews the Groups interim and annual announcements and financial statements before they are submitted to the Board for approval. It reviews the Groups compliance with the Listing Manual and Code of Corporate Governance including interested person transactions. It also recommends the appointment of the external auditors and reviews their independence and their fees.

STATEMENT OF CORPORATE GOVERNANCE


Audit Committee reviews and approves the annual internal audit plan as well as reviews the results of the regular audits. The Board is satisfied with the adequacy of the internal audit function and is confident it has an appropriate standing within the Group and is independent of the activities it audits. COMMUNICATION WITH SHAREHOLDERS (Code of Corporate Governance Principles 14 & 15) The Company makes all necessary disclosures to the public via SGXNET. The Company also maintains a comprehensive website accessible to the public which describes the Companys products and independent dealers, among other items, and includes an investor relations tab to assist shareholders. Shareholders of the Company receive the Annual Reports and notices of Annual General Meetings (AGMs) which are also advertised in the newspapers at least 14 days prior to the AGMs. The Board encourages shareholders participation at the AGMs and periodically communicates with shareholders through the course of the financial year. Members of the Board and chairmen of the Board committees are present to answer queries raised at the meetings. DEALING IN SECURITIES (Listing Manual Rule 1207(18)) The Company has adopted and complied with the section on dealings in securities in the Best Practices Guide issued by SGX-ST. Directors and senior executives of the Group are advised not to deal in the Companys shares on short-term considerations or when they are in possession of unpublished material price-sensitive information. They are also reminded regularly not to deal in the Companys shares during the period commencing one month before the announcement of the Groups interim and annual results and ending on the date of announcement of those results. And such reminders include a computer generated email sent to all Directors and Senior executives on a quarterly basis. Directors and Senior executives are required to report to the Company secretary whenever they deal in the Companys shares. The Company secretary assists the Audit Committee and the Board in monitoring such share transactions and making the necessary announcements.

RISK MANAGEMENT With the help of an external consultant, the Group has designed an enterprise risk management (ERM) framework to monitor, manage and build awareness within the Group of the various risks that it is exposed to. The Board also reviews the Groups business and operational activities to identify areas of significant business risk as well as appropriate measures to control and mitigate these risks within the Groups policies and business strategies. The Audit Committee has also requested that the new independent external firm retained to perform the Groups internal audit function also update the Groups Enterprise Risk Assessment Process and create a risk register to be used by the Audit Committee and the external firm to monitor the manner in which the Group manages such risks. The previous risk assessment of the Groups operations is also being updated by the new internal audit firm. The objective of the risk assessment is to identify and assess risks which include key financial, operational, strategic and regulatory risks. The Audit Committee is regularly updated on the Groups risk management program.

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS REPORT


Members of the Company Grand Banks Yachts Limited We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Grand Banks Yachts Limited (the Company) and its subsidiaries (the Group), which comprise the statements of financial position of the Group and the Company as at 30 June 2010, the income statement, statement of comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity and cash flow statement of the Group for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes, as set out on pages 22 to 47. MANAGEMENTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with the provisions of the Singapore Companies Act, Chapter 50 (the Act) and Singapore Financial Reporting Standards. This responsibility includes: (a) devising and maintaining a system of internal accounting controls sufficient to provide a reasonable assurance that assets are safeguarded against loss from unauthorised use or disposition; and transactions are properly authorised and that they are recorded as necessary to permit the preparation of true and fair profit and loss accounts and balance sheets and to maintain accountability of assets; selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies; and making accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entitys preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements 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 management, 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: (a) the consolidated financial statements of the Group and the statement of financial position of the Company are properly drawn up in accordance with the provisions of the Act and Singapore Financial Reporting Standards to give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Group and of the Company as at 30 June 2010 and the results, changes in equity and cash flows of the Group for the year ended on that date; and the accounting and other records required by the Act to be kept by the Company and by those subsidiaries incorporated in Singapore of which we are the auditors have been properly kept in accordance with the provisions of the Act.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


These notes form an integral part of the financial statements. The financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board of Directors on 9 September 2010. 1 DOMICILE AND ACTIVITIES Grand Banks Yachts Limited (the Company) is incorporated in the Republic of Singapore and has its registered office at 541 Orchard Road #18-01 Liat Towers Singapore 238881. The principal activities of the Company are those of an investment holding company with significant subsidiaries in the business of manufacturing and selling luxury yachts worldwide. See Note 4 to the financial statements for additional information on the subsidiaries. The consolidated financial statements relate to the Company and its subsidiaries (referred to as the Group). 2 2.1 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Basis of preparation The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Singapore Financial Reporting Standards (FRS). The financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis except for certain financial assets and financial liabilities which are measured at fair value. All financial information has been rounded to the nearest thousand, unless otherwise stated. The accounting policies used by the Group have been applied consistently to all periods presented in these financial statements. 2.2 Significant accounting judgements and estimates The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with FRSs requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses. Actual results may differ from these estimates. Estimates and underlying assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions to accounting estimates are recognised in the period in which the estimates are revised and in any future periods affected. In particular, information about significant areas of critical judgements and estimation uncertainty are described in the following notes: Critical judgements a) Determination of functional currency The Group measures foreign currency transactions in the respective functional currencies of the Company and its subsidiaries. In determining the functional currencies of the entities in the Group, judgement is required to determine the currency that mainly influences sales prices for goods and services and of the country whose competitive forces and regulation mainly determines the sales prices of its goods and services. The functional currencies of the entities in the Group are determined mainly based on managements assessment of the economic environment in which the entities operate, the entitys process of determining sales prices and the currency that mainly influences labour, materials and other costs of providing goods or services. b) Review for indicators of impairment for non-financial assets The Group assessed whether there were indicators of impairment for all non-financial assets except for inventories and deferred tax assets at each reporting date. In performing its review, the Group considered the latest available management budgets, long term economic indicators and industry outlooks and sustainability, market competition, underlying business fundamentals and market perception of the corporate brand. The review requires significant assumptions particularly given the uncertainty regarding the timing of economic recoveries in the regions where the Group sells its yachts.

Since the change in accounting policy only impacts presentation, there is no impact on earnings per share. Financial instruments: Disclosures The Group applies the amendments to FRS 107 Financial Instruments: Disclosures, which became effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2009. As a result, the Group discloses: (a) how the fair value of its financial instruments are measured using the three-level hierarchy and provides additional disclosures about the relative reliability of the fair value measurements; and the maximum amount of issued financial guarantees in the earliest time period for which the guarantees could be called upon in the contractual maturity analysis. Previously, the Group disclosed the maximum amount of issued financial guarantees in the contractual maturity analysis only if the Group assessed that it is probable that the guarantee would be called upon.
G R A N D B A N K S YA C H T S

Changes in accounting policy With effect from 1 July 2009, the Group adopted the following new or amended FRS which are relevant to the Groups operations: FRS 1 (revised 2008) Amendments to FRS 107 FRS 108 Presentation of Financial Statements Financial Instruments Disclosures Improving Disclosures about Financial instruments Operating Segments (iii)

FRS 107 does not require comparative information to be restated and therefore, the contractual maturity analysis for the comparative period has not been represented. Since the change in accounting policy only impacts presentation and disclosure aspects, there is no impact on earnings per share. Determination and presentation of operating segments From 1 July 2009 the Group determines and presents operating segments based on the information that is provided to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), who are the Groups chief operating decision maker (CODM). This change in accounting policy is due to the adoption of FRS 108 Operating Segments. Previously, operating segments were determined and presented in accordance with FRS 14 Segment Reporting. The new accounting policy in respect of segment operating disclosures is presented as follows:

[ 2010 ANNUAL REPORT ]

(i)

Presentation of financial statements The Group applies revised FRS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements (2008), which became effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2009. As a result, the Group presents in the consolidated statement of changes in equity all owner changes in equity, whereas all non-owner changes in equity are presented in the consolidated statement of comprehensive income.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


2 2.3 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD) Changes in accounting policy (Contd) An operating segment is a component of the Group that engages in business activities from which it may earn revenues and incur expenses, including revenues and expenses that relate to transactions with any of the Groups other components. An operating segments operating results are reviewed regularly by the CODM to make decisions about resources to be allocated to the segment and assess its performance, and for which discrete financial information is available. Segment results that are reported to the CODM include items directly attributable to a segment as well as those that can be allocated on a reasonable basis. Segment capital expenditure is the total cost incurred during the period to acquire property, plant and equipment, and intangible assets other than goodwill. 2.4 Consolidation Business combination
[ 2010 ANNUAL REPORT ]

Accounting for subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures by the Company Investments in subsidiaries are stated in the Companys statement of financial position at cost less impairment losses. 2.5 Foreign currencies Functional and presentation currency The financial statements of the Group are presented in Singapore dollars (SGD) which is also the Companys functional currency. The financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries are measured in respective functional currencies determined by management based on the judgemental factors discussed in 2.2. Foreign currency transactions Transactions in foreign currencies are translated to the respective functional currencies of Group entities at the exchange rate at the date of the transaction. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at the reporting date are retranslated to the functional currency at the exchange rate at the reporting date. Non-monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies that are measured at fair value are retranslated to the functional currency at the exchange rate at the date on which the fair value was determined. Foreign currency differences arising on retranslation are recognised in profit or loss, except for differences arising on the retranslation of monetary items that in substance form part of the Groups net investment in a foreign operation (see below). Foreign operations The assets and liabilities of foreign operations are translated to Singapore dollars at exchange rates at the reporting date. The income and expenses of foreign operations are translated to Singapore dollars at exchange rates at the dates of the transactions. Goodwill and fair value adjustments arising on the acquisition of a foreign operation on or after 1 January 2005 are treated as assets and liabilities of the foreign operation and translated at the closing rate. For acquisitions prior to 1 January 2005, the exchange rates at the date of acquisitions were used.

Business combinations are accounted for under the purchase method. The cost of an acquisition is measured at the fair value of the assets given, equity instruments issued and liabilities incurred or assumed at the date of exchange, plus costs directly attributable to the acquisition. Subsidiaries Subsidiaries are companies controlled by the Group. Control exists when the Group has the power, directly or indirectly, to govern the financial and operating policies of a company so as to obtain benefits from its activities. In assessing control, potential voting rights that are presently exercisable are taken into account. The financial statements of subsidiaries are included in the consolidated financial statements from the date that control commences until the date that control ceases. The accounting policies of subsidiaries have been changed where necessary to align them with the policies adopted by the Group. Transactions eliminated on consolidation Intra-group balances and transactions, and any unrealised income or expenses arising from intra-group transactions, are eliminated in preparing the consolidated financial statements.

When a foreign operation is disposed of, in part or in full, the relevant amount in the foreign currency translation reserve is transferred to profit or loss as part of the profit or loss on disposal. When the settlement of a monetary item receivable from or payable to a foreign operation is neither planned nor likely in the foreseeable future, foreign exchange gains and losses arising from such a monetary item are considered to form part of a net investment in a foreign operation and are recognised in other comprehensive income, and are presented within equity in the foreign currency translation reserve. 2.6 Property, plant and equipment Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses. Cost includes expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the asset. The cost of self-constructed assets includes the cost of materials and direct labour, any other costs directly attributable to bringing the asset to a working condition for its intended use, and the costs of dismantling and removing the items and restoring the site on which they are located. Purchased software that is integral to the functionality of the related equipment is capitalised as part of that equipment. When parts of an item of property, plant and equipment have different useful lives, they are accounted for as separate items (major components) of property, plant and equipment. The cost of replacing part of an item of property, plant and equipment is recognised in the carrying amount of the item if it is probable that the future economic benefits embodied within the part will flow to the Group, and its cost can be measured reliably. The costs of the day-to-day servicing of property, plant and equipment are recognised in profit or loss as incurred. Depreciation is recognised in profit or loss on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of each part of an item of property, plant and equipment. 2.7 The estimated useful lives are as follows: Buildings on leasehold land Freehold residential buildings Leasehold land Plant and machinery Furniture, fixtures and equipment Toolings and moulds Motor vehicles and workboats 22 - 28 years 50 years Lease period of 30 years 10 years 3 to 5 years 4 to 8 years 5 to 10 years

Assets under construction are not depreciated. Depreciation commences when the assets are ready for use. Depreciation methods, useful lives and residual values are reviewed, and adjusted as appropriate, at each reporting date. Intangible assets Research and development Development activities involve a plan or design for the production of new or substantially improved products and processes. Development expenditure is capitalised only if development costs can be measured reliably, the product or process is technically and commercially feasible, future economic benefits are probable, and the Group intends to and has sufficient resources to complete development and to use or sell the asset. The expenditure capitalised includes the cost of materials, direct labour and overhead costs that are directly attributable to preparing the asset for its intended use. Other development expenditure is recognised in profit or loss as incurred. Capitalised development expenditure is stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and impairment losses. Amortisation is recognised in profit or loss on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of approximately 6 years. Trade marks Trade marks with finite useful life are stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and impairment losses. Trade marks are amortised in profit or loss on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful life of 20 years.

2 2.8 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD) Financial instruments Non-derivative financial instruments Non-derivative financial instruments comprise investments in debt securities, trade and other receivables, cash and cash equivalents, and trade and other payables. A financial instrument is recognised if the Group becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. Financial assets are derecognised if the Groups contractual rights to the cash flows from the financial assets expire or if the Group transfers the financial asset to another party without retaining control or transfers substantially all the risks and rewards of the asset. Financial liabilities are derecognised if the Groups obligations specified in the contract expire or are discharged or cancelled. Purchases and sales of financial assets are accounted for at trade date, that is, the date that the Group commits itself to purchase or sell the asset. Non-derivative financial assets
[ 2010 ANNUAL REPORT ]

Non-derivative financial liabilities Financial liabilities (including liabilities designated at fair value through profit or loss) are recognised initially on the trade date at which the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. Financial assets and liabilities are offset and the net amount presented in the statement of financial position when, and only when, the Company has a legal right to offset the amounts and intends either to settle on a net basis or to realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously. The Companys non-derivative financial liabilities are trade and other payables. Such financial liabilities are recognised initially at fair value plus any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, these financial liabilities are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method. Derivative financial instruments Derivatives are not used for trading purposes but rather are periodically entered into by the Group to hedge its foreign currency exposure. Derivatives are recognised initially at fair value; attributable transaction costs are recognised in profit or loss when incurred. Subsequent to initial recognition, derivatives are measured at fair value, and changes therein are recognised in profit or loss. Impairment of financial assets A financial asset is assessed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any objective evidence that it is impaired. A financial asset is considered to be impaired if objective evidence indicates that one or more events have had a negative effect on the estimated future cash flows of that asset. An impairment loss in respect of a financial asset measured at amortised cost is calculated as the difference between its carrying amount, and the present value of the estimated future cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate. An impairment loss in respect of an available-for-sale financial asset is calculated by reference to its current fair value.

Non-derivative financial instruments that are not at fair value through profit or loss are recognised initially at fair value plus any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, non-derivative financial instruments are measured as described below. Loans and receivables are financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. Such assets are recognised initially at fair value plus any directly attributable transaction costs. Subsequent to initial recognition, loans and receivables are measured at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less any impairment losses. Loans and receivables comprise trade and other receivables and amounts due from related parties. Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash balances and bank deposits. For the purposes of the cash flow statement, cash and cash equivalents exclude short-term deposits which are pledged to the bank as security and cannot be withdrawn on demand.

2 2.8 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD) Financial instruments (Contd) Significant financial assets are tested for impairment on an individual basis. The remaining financial assets are assessed collectively in groups that share similar credit risk characteristics. All impairment losses are recognised in profit or loss. An impairment loss is reversed if the reversal can be related objectively to an event occurring after the impairment loss was recognised in profit or loss. Held-for-trading Financial instruments held-for-trading are classified as current assets and are stated at fair value, with any resultant gain or loss recognised in profit or loss. The fair value of financial instruments classified as held-for-trading is determined as the quoted bid price at the balance sheet date. 2.9 Impairment non-financial assets The carrying amounts of the Groups non-financial assets, other than inventories and deferred tax assets, are reviewed at each reporting date to determine whether there is any indication of impairment. If any such indication exists, the assets recoverable amounts are estimated. An impairment loss is recognised if the carrying amount of an asset or its cashgenerating unit exceeds its recoverable amount. A cash-generating unit is the smallest identifiable asset group that generates cash flows that are largely independent from other assets and groups. Impairment losses are recognised in profit or loss unless it reverses a previous revaluation, credited to other comprehensive income, in which case it is charged to other comprehensive income. The recoverable amount of an asset or cash-generating unit is the greater of its value in use and its fair value less costs to sell. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre-tax 2.10 discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset or cash-generating unit. Impairment losses recognised in prior periods are assessed at each reporting date for any indications that the loss has decreased or no longer exists. An impairment loss is reversed if there has been a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable amount. An impairment loss is reversed only to the extent that the assets carrying amount does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined, net of depreciation or amortisation, if no impairment loss had been recognised. Inventories Inventories are measured at the lower of cost and net realisable value. The cost of inventories is based on the first-in first-out principle, and includes expenditure incurred in acquiring the inventories, production or conversion costs and other costs incurred in bringing them to their existing location and condition. In the case of manufactured inventories and work-in-progress, cost includes an appropriate share of production overheads based on normal operating capacity. Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less the estimated costs of completion and selling expenses.

2.11

Construction contracts The accounting policy for contract revenue is set out in Note 2.14. Construction contracts are measured at cost plus profit recognised to date less progress billings and recognised losses. Costs include all expenditure related directly to the construction of a specific yacht and an allocation of fixed and variable overheads incurred in the contract activities based on normal operating capacity. Construction contracts are presented either as unbilled receivables on contract work-in-progress or deferred income on contract work-in-progress. Unbilled receivables on contract work-in-progress represent the gross unbilled amount expected to be collected from customers for contract work performed to date. Whereas, deferred income on contract work-in-progress represents payments received from customers which exceed the income recognised for contract work performed to date.

2 2.12 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD) Provisions A provision is recognised if, as a result of a past event, the Group has a present legal or constructive obligation that can be estimated reliably, and it is probable that an outflow of economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation. Provisions are determined by discounting the expected future cash flows at a pre-tax rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the liability. Provision for warranty claims A provision for warranty claims is recognised when each boat is sold. The provision is based on historical warranty data and a weighting of all possible outcomes against their associated probabilities. Claims, when incurred, are charged against this provision account. 2.13
[ 2010 ANNUAL REPORT ]

as an employee benefit expense on a straight-line basis, with a corresponding increase in equity, over the period that the employees unconditionally become entitled to the awards. 2.14 Revenue recognition Construction contracts When the outcome of a construction contract can be estimated reliably, contract revenue and expenses are recognised in profit or loss by reference to the stage of completion of the contract activity at the balance sheet date. The stage of completion is measured by reference to the hours incurred to date and the estimated total hours for each contract. When the outcome of a construction contract cannot be estimated reliably, contract costs are recognised as an expense in the period in which they are incurred. When it is probable that total contract costs will exceed total revenue, the expected loss is recognised as an expense immediately in profit or loss. Sale of stock boats Revenue is recognised when the significant risks and rewards of ownership have been transferred to the buyer. Revenue excludes goods and services taxes and other sales taxes and is arrived at after deduction of trade discounts. No revenue is recognised if there are significant uncertainties regarding recovery of the consideration due, associated costs or the possible return of goods. Interest income Interest income from bank deposits is accrued on a time-apportioned basis. 2.15 Income tax Income tax expense comprises current and deferred tax. Current tax and deferred tax are recognised in profit or loss except to the extent that it relates to items recognised directly in equity or in other comprehensive income. Current tax is the expected tax payable or receivable on the taxable income or loss for the year, using tax rates enacted or substantively enacted at the reporting date, and any adjustment to tax payable in respect of previous years.

Employee benefits Defined contribution plans Obligations for contributions to defined contribution plans are recognised as an expense in profit or loss as incurred. Other long-term employee benefits The Groups net obligation in respect of long-term employee benefits other than pension plans is the amount of future benefit that employees have earned in return for their service in the current and prior periods; that benefit is discounted to determine its present value, and the fair value of any related assets is deducted. Share-based compensation transactions Awards of ordinary shares under Grand Banks Yachts Limiteds Performance Incentive Plan are accounted for as an equity-settled share-based payment determined in accordance with FRS 102. Equity-settled share-based payments are measured at fair value at the date of grant. The fair value of the employees services is amortised and recognised

2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD) 2.15 Income tax (Contd) 2.19 2.18 Finance costs Interest expense and similar charges are expensed in profit or loss in the period in which they are incurred. New standards and interpretations not yet adopted New standards, amendments to standards and interpretations that are not yet effective for the year ended 30 June 2010 have not been applied in preparing these financial statements, such as the Amendments to FRS 102 Sharebased Payment Group cash-settled share-based payment transactions and Improvements to FRSs 2009. The amendments to FRS 102 on group cash-settled share-based payment transactions will become effective for the Groups financial statements for the year ending 30 June 2011. The amendments require an entity receiving goods or services in either an equity-settled or a cash-settle share-based payment transaction to account for the transaction in its separate or individual financial statements. The application of these amendments is not expected to have any significant impact on the Groups financial statements. Improvements to FRSs 2009 will become effective for the Groups financial statements for the year ending 30 June 2011 for amendments relating to: FRS 1 Presentation of financial statements FRS 7 Statement of cash flows FRS 17 Leases FRS 36 Impairment of assets FRS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition and measurement FRS 105 Non-current assets held for sale and discontinued operations FRS 108 Operating segments Improvements to FRSs 2009 contain amendments to numerous accounting standards that result in accounting changes for presentation, recognition or measurement and disclosure purposes. The Group is in the process of assessing the impact of these amendments.
G R A N D B A N K S YA C H T S

Deferred tax is recognised in respect of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for taxation purposes. Deferred tax is not recognised for the initial recognition of assets or liabilities in a transaction that is not a business combination and that affects neither accounting nor taxable profit, and differences relating to investments in subsidiaries to the extent that they will not reverse in the foreseeable future. Deferred tax is measured at the tax rates that are expected to be applied to temporary differences when they reverse, based on the laws that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the reporting date. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset if there is a legally enforceable right to offset current tax liabilities and assets, and they relate to income taxes levied by the same tax authority on the same taxable entity, or on different tax entities, but they intend to settle current tax liabilities and assets on a net basis or their tax assets and liabilities will be realised simultaneously. A deferred tax asset is recognised to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which the temporary differences can be utilised. Deferred tax assets are reviewed at each reporting date and are reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that the related tax benefit will be realised. 2.16 Operating leases Where the Group has the use of assets under operating leases, payments made under the leases are recognised in profit or loss on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Lease incentives received are recognised in profit or loss as an integral part of the total lease payments made. Contingent rentals are charged to profit or loss in the accounting period in which they are incurred. 2.17 Other non-operating expense/income Other non-operating expense/income comprises foreign exchange differences, gain on disposal of plant and equipment, operating lease income, interest income on bank deposits, changes in the fair value of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss and others.

6 DEFERRED TAX ASSETS (CONTD) Deferred tax liabilities and assets are offset when there is a legally enforceable right to set off current tax assets against current tax liabilities and when the deferred taxes relate to the same tax authority. Deferred tax assets have been recognised in respect of these items because management is of the view that future taxable profit based on profit forecasts approved by management covering a four-year period will be available against which the Group can utilise the benefits. 7 INVENTORIES Group 2010 2009 $000 $000 9,596 3,047 5,003 17,646 8 5,174 22,820 11,310 4,438 3,744 19,492 662 20,154 9 Aggregate amount of costs incurred and recognised profits (less recognised losses) to date Progress billings Presented as:Unbilled receivables on contract work-inprogress Deferred income on contract work-in-progress Advance payments received from customers before the related construction work is performed TRADE AND OTHER RECEIVABLES Group 2010 2009 $000 $000 Trade receivables Refundable deposits Interest receivable Sundry receivables Loans and receivables 831 212 24 1,067 2,219 238 2 23 2,482 Company 2010 2009 $000 $000 24 100 124 2 2 8 CONTRACTUAL CONSTRUCTION WORK-IN-PROGRESS Note 2010 Group 2009 $000

Usage of raw materials, changes in work-in-progress and changes in finished goods are main components of the cost of sales shown in profit or loss. Cost of sales also includes an allowance for inventory obsolescence which was provided to be consistent with the view that assets should not be carried in excess of amounts expected to be realised from their sale or use. Estimates of net realisable value are based on the most reliable evidence available at the balance sheet date. These estimates take into consideration market demand, competition, selling price and cost directly relating to events occurring after the end of the financial year to the extent that such events confirm conditions existing at the end of the financial year.

CORPORATE RESTRUCTURING COSTS, NET During the financial period ended 30 June 2009, the corporate restructuring plans were executed to realign the Groups organisation structure and operating costs with prevailing demand for the Groups yachts. This had resulted in a total reduction in the workforce from 1,244 to 466. Retrenchment benefits of $7,191,000 were incurred and expensed in the previous year. The restructuring exercise was completed with the discontinuation of the Groups yacht manufacturing operation in Singapore and disposal of its leasehold property, manufacturing plant and other facilities in Singapore with a gain on disposal of $3,901,000.

SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION The Groups Remuneration Committee which administers Grand Banks Yachts Limited Performance Incentive Plan (the Plan) makes award grants of ordinary shares (Performance Shares) in the capital of the Group to eligible participants. The participants ability to receive the Performance Shares granted is conditional upon two distinct criteria: performance and time-based service vesting conditions. The performance targets are set based on corporate objectives established for a performance period not to exceed three years with the final number of Performance Shares earned dependent on the level of achievement of those targets. Additionally, the vesting periods for all Performance Shares shall not exceed three years. A participant only receives the Performance Shares granted after the shares are earned and vested.

These shares have been earned and will vest in two tranches on 2 October 2010 and 2 October 2011, subject to the fulfilment of time-based service condition. These shares have not been earned. The number of shares that can ultimately be earned will depend on the achievement of the performance targets set and ranges from 0 to 800,000 shares. The shares, when earned, will vest on 30 June 2012, subject to the fulfilment of timebased service condition and performance conditions.

The expected volatility is based on the historical volatility over the most recent period that is close to the expected life of the performance shares. During the year, the Group recognised a charge of $101,000 (2009: Nil) to the income statement based on the fair value of the performance shares at the grant date being expensed over the vesting period.

23 INCOME TAX (CREDIT)/EXPENSE (CONTD) Unrecognised deferred tax assets The Malaysian subsidiary has unutilised reinvestment allowances and tax losses of approximately $4,400,000 and $4,160,000 respectively (2009: Nil) which are available for carry forward and set-off against future taxable profits. The Singapore subsidiaries have unutilised tax losses of approximately $4,172,000 (2009: $2,700,000) which are available for carry forward and set-off against future taxable profits subject to agreement with the Comptroller of Income Tax and compliance with Section 37 of the Income Tax Act, Chapter 134. Deferred tax assets have not been recognised in respect of the above items as it is uncertain whether future taxable profit derived from the subsidiaries concerned will be sufficient to utilise the benefits. 24 EARNINGS PER SHARE Group Period from Year ended 1/4/2008 to 30/6/2010 30/6/2009 Basic earnings per share is based on: Net loss for the year/period ($000) Number of shares outstanding at beginning of the year/period (000) Effect of issue of bonus performance shares under Performance Incentive Plan (000) Weighted average number of ordinary shares at the end of the year/period (000) (7,523) (7,747) Restated 95,581 219 95,800 95,581 219 95,800 Short-term employee benefits Contribution to defined contribution plans Performance incentive plan Retirement benefits 25 There are 216,259 ordinary shares that are potentially issuable to participating employees under the Grand Banks Yachts Limiteds Performance Incentive Plan (note 22). These potential ordinary shares are anti-dilutive as their conversion to ordinary shares would decrease, though insignificantly, the loss per share of the Group. As such, the calculation of diluted earnings per share does not assume conversion of these potential ordinary shares. Accordingly, for disclosure purpose, diluted earnings per share is the same as basic earnings per share. DIVIDENDS No dividend is proposed for the financial year ended 30 June 2010 (2009:Nil). 26 SIGNIFICANT RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS Definition of related parties For the purpose of these financial statements, parties are considered to be related to the Group if the Group has the ability, directly or indirectly, to control the party or exercise significant influence over the party in making the financial and operating decisions, or vice versa, or where the Group and the party are subject to common control or common significant influence. Related parties may be individuals or other entities. The transactions with key management personnel are only related to their compensation.

Evaluations are performed on all new dealers and when other circumstances require such analysis. Goods are generally sold on cash terms and occasionally arranged to be settled by secured letters of credit and bank commitment letters issued by reputable banks in countries where the customers are based. Cash and fixed deposits are placed with banks and financial institutions which are regulated. There are no concentrations of credit risk. The maximum exposure to credit risk is the carrying amount of each financial asset on the balance sheet. Liquidity risk The Group monitors its liquidity risk and maintains a level of cash and cash equivalents deemed adequate by management to finance the Groups operations and to mitigate the effects of fluctuations in cash flows. Due to changes in credit environment, the Group periodically finances the purchase of yachts by dealers. The following are the expected contractual undiscounted cash outflows of financial liabilities, including interest payments and excluding the impact of netting agreements: Carrying amount Contractual cash flows $000 Cash flows Within Within More than 1 year 2 to 5 years 5 years $000 $000 $000

The Group has non-cancellable operating lease for its Singapore office. The lease is for a period of 2 years with renewal options. The lease does not include contingent rentals and are not subject to any annual revision in rent.

FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES Overview Exposure to credit, liquidity, interest rate and currency risks arises in the normal course of the Groups business. The Group has established its general risk management philosophy to create an acceptable balance between the cost of risks occurring and the cost of managing the risks. Management continually monitors the Groups risks to ensure that an appropriate balance between risk and control is achieved and to reflect changes in market conditions. The Audit Committee oversees how management monitors compliance with the Groups risk management and reviews the adequacy of the risk management framework in relation to the risks faced by the Group. The Audit Committee is assisted in its oversight role by Internal Audit. Internal Audit undertakes both regular and ad hoc reviews of risk management controls and procedures, the results of which are reported to the Audit Committee.

Fair values of financial assets and financial liabilities Debt securities held-for-trading Fair value is based on quoted market prices at the balance sheet date without any deduction for transaction costs. The Group has categorised debt securities held-fortrading as Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The different levels are defined as follows: 2 (2) Level 1 Fair values are measured based on quoted prices (unadjusted) from active markets for identical financial instruments. Level 2 Fair values are measured using inputs, other than those used for Level 1, that are observable for the financial instruments either directly (prices) or indirectly (derived from prices) Level 3 Fair values are measured using inputs which are not based on observable market data (unobservable input). Derivatives The fair value of forward exchange contracts is based on their listed market price, if available. If a listed market price is not available, fair value is estimated by discounting the difference between the contractual forward price and the current forward price for the residual period to maturity of the contract using a risk-free interest rate. Other financial assets and liabilities The carrying amounts of financial assets and liabilities with a maturity of less than one year (including trade and other receivables, cash and cash equivalents, and trade and other payables) are assumed to approximate their fair values because of the short period to maturity. All other financial assets and liabilities are discounted to determine their fair values.

Using the latest information available, the Group accrues for its exposure based upon the managements best estimates, made in consultation with legal counsel, of the likely range of exposure stemming from the claims. In the opinion of the management, the Groups litigation or claims, when finally resolved, will not have a material adverse effect on the Groups consolidated financial position. Nevertheless, management continues to monitor both claims and legal proceedings to determine that its estimates are adequate, however, if current cost estimates for the resolution of these claims are later determined to be inadequate, then the results of the Groups operations could be adversely affected.
