ANNUAL REPORT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 MARCH 2008

Mayibuye Transport Corporation Annual Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2008

FOREWORD BY MEMBER OF THE EXECUTIVE COUNCIL


Mayibuye Transport Corporation continues to show signs of recovery and is gradually transforming into a viable public transport service provider. This can be attributed to good leadership and professionalism by the Board and management with limited resources at their disposal. Under their capable leadership, the Corporation adopted a host of new policies, including a Risk Management Strategy and a Fraud Prevention Policy. The internal audit function has been outsourced to one of the top auditing firms in the country in an attempt to enhance good administration and governance. The Department of Roads & Transport will continue to support the Corporation in order to enhance its internal capacity and to deliver on its mandate of rendering a safe, affordable and reliable public transport service to the communities that it serves. The Department has, through its grant-in-aid program to Mayibuye enabled the Corporation to upgrade its bus fleet and depot infrastructure. There is, however, still major capital programs that would have to be instituted if we want the Corporation to compete with the private sector in future. Provincial Treasury will be made aware hereof. I wish, however, to express my sincere gratitude to the Board and staff of Mayibuye Transport Corporation for the service that they rendered to the approximately 1.8 million passengers that they transported during the past year. This annual report attempts to record and report to the public the extent to which the Corporation has been able to execute its mandate during the 2007/08 financial year.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRPERSON


Laying strong foundations for Governance The Board of Directors of MTC, appointed in March 2007, is constituted of members who have distinguished themselves in a variety of disciplines at a governance and fiduciary level. In implementing its mandate, the Board developed a Board Planning Framework. The development of this Framework saw more structured interventions with clear monitoring and evaluation yardsticks to measure progress. Significant milestones were recorded and are reflected on the Performance Report which is Part 2 of this Report. This Framework maps the way forward for the Board and introduces sustained improvements throughout the Corporation. Contributing to the Provincial Growth and Development Plan 2007/08 was another year in which MTC made its contribution to the Provincial Growth and Development Plan through the provision of public transport services thereby enabling access to health care, basic services, education and employment. We will continue to operate in social routes such that those who live in rural Eastern Cape do not find themselves disadvantaged from accessing these and other services that can help them to improve their lives. Partnerships and putting our customers first Commuters were engaged on the level of service expected and kept abreast of changes that impact on them through functional Corporation-Commuter forums. We put our customers first and will keep to our brand promise of Until We Transport Them All. We pride ourselves on the partnerships built, encouraged by Governments declaration that all organs of state should renew their pledges to the citizenry through building partnerships that will improve their lives. In this tone, MTC started with harnessing relationships within the Corporation, promoting a sense of identity throughout the Corporation. This was extended to external partners and stakeholders. The Corporation is grateful for the support rendered by the Department of Roads and Transport through its strategic and capital investments. Improving financial viability and sustainability During the year under review, the MTC Board worked closely with the Corporations management on the areas of financial management and viability. These include introducing alternative revenue generation streams, improving route revenue and private hire. This coupled with putting in place sound financial management systems and controls, will contribute to MTCs growth and development. We are proud to announce that the Corporation, for the first time, made a profit of R2, 580, 204 million. These measures will go a long way towards improving the Corporations financial standing. Going forward We will build on these foundations in 2008/09 and fulfil statutory obligations in an accountable and responsible manner. We further commit to implementing the recommendations of the Portfolio Committee on Roads and Transport which has oversight responsibility over the Corporation.

1.3

INFORMATION ABOUT THE ENTITY

Mayibuye Transport Corporation was formed as a parastatal in October 1990 by the former Ciskei Government with the main objective of providing an affordable bus transport service to the predominantly rural communities of the former Republic of Ciskei where public transport was either inadequate or not existing at all. Due to the socio-economic conditions prevailing in these rural communities as a direct result of apartheid, resulting in longer than normal distances between residential areas and places of employment and social institutions, the subsidisation of bus passenger fares became a necessity which in turn puts pressure on the ever-increasing real costs of the service. 1.3.1 AREAS OF OPERATION

MTC currently provides passenger transport services through its four bus depots: 1.3.1.1 Zwelitsha Depot

This depot is situated opposite Zone 8, along Route 347. It covers the area of King Williams Town. Contact Details Zwelitsha Depot Mount Coke Road Zwelitsha 5608 Tel: 040 654 1351 1.3.1.2 Reeston Depot P.O. Box 19596 Tecoma, East London 5214 Fax: 040 655 1907

The Reeston depot is situated on the corner of Drummond and Mdantsane Access Roads between Mdantsane and East London. It covers the Potsdam and Newlands areas of Buffalo City.

We are engaged in the process of procuring fleet management systems for possible installation on the 1st August 2008. Early indications are that premature engine failures will be overcome once this has been installed.

Forward planning.

Minimise disruptions caused by major unit failures.

2.6.4.4.1

Specific Challenges & Response

Challenge 1: The average number of operating buses per month was 46 instead of the targeted 49 buses due to the age of the fleet.

Page 30 of 87

Mayibuye Transport Corporation Annual Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2008

Response to challenge 1: The Department of Roads & Transport has provided capital funds and further commitment to sustain this funding in order for the Corporation to recapitalise the fleet. However, the subsequent amounts from 2007/08 will be insignificant to match the rate of the necessary recapitalisation programme. Challenge 2: Attacks on drivers at some sleeping grounds forces the Corporation to run empty buses from the depots after completion of shifts. Response to challenge 2: Constant mobilization of communities to remain vigilant to strangers and suspicious persons who perpetrate these robberies. Operations are actively engaging relevant stakeholders with the aim of securing sleeping grounds closer to pick-up points. Target date for implementation is end of September 2008 Challenge 3: Our buses are still vulnerable, to some extent, to siphoning of diesel at sleeping grounds. Response to challenge 3: During the year under review, 15% of the vulnerable vehicles were fitted with modified diesel tank caps to curb siphoning. This strategy along introduction of new vehicles with is yielding the desired results and the average consumption for the year is testimony to this conclusion i.e. 42.5l/100km compared to 45l/100km in 2006/07 2.6.5 2.6.5.1 OPERATIONS DIVISION PURPOSE OF OPERATIONS DIVISION

To spearhead the transportation of passengers on all MTC routes and thereby generate revenue for the Corporation. 2.6.5.2 STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES OF OPERATIONS DIVISION To provide a community needs driven passenger service that is reliable, access provided by a disciplined and caring staff.

More dead kms were travelled in certain routes. MTC in partnership with communities has negotiated sleeping grounds for drivers to eliminate dead kms. Operating with ageing fleet is the greatest challenge that our drivers have to deal with. Limited number of operating buses due to breakdowns and major defects remains our major concern.

2.6.5.4.1

Specific Challenges and Response

Challenge 1: Electronic Ticket Machines (ETMs) are susceptible to frequent breakdowns due to the dusty nature of the rural operations which comprises 80% of the MTC operations as well as bad routes. Response to challenge 1: Strengthen first line maintenance on ETMs and purchase sufficient spare machines as well liaising with the Department of Roads and Transport to assist on bad routes. Challenge 2: Attacks on drivers at some sleeping grounds forces the Corporation to run empty buses to and from the depots after completion and before the start of shifts. Response to challenge 2 Constant mobilization of communities to remain vigilant to strangers and suspicious persons who perpetrate these robberies. Challenge 3 Meeting customer needs and expectations as well as running a reliable service is a major challenge due to limited number of peak buses. Response to challenge 3: The refurbishment programme implemented by Engineering department will partially yield positive results as some buses are off the road due to body structural defects.

As required by section 188 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996 read with section 4 of the Public Audit Act, 2004 (Act No. 25 of 2004) (PAA) and section 10(2) of the Ciskeian Corporations Act, 1981 (Act No. 16 of 1981) as amended by the Corporations Transitional Provisions Act, 1995 (Act No. 12 of 1995), my responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on my audit. I conducted my audit in accordance with the International Standards on Auditing and General Notice 616 of 2008, issued in Government Gazette No. 31057 of 15 May 2008. Those standards require that I comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance on 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 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.

6.

An audit also includes evaluating the: appropriateness of accounting policies used reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management overall presentation of the financial statements.

7.

I believe that the audit evidence I have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for my audit opinion.

Basis of Accounting 8. The public entitys policy is to prepare financial statements on the basis of accounting determined by the National Treasury, as set out in the accounting policy note 1 to the financial statements.

Basis for qualified opinion 9. Completeness of Revenue In common with similar organisations, it is not feasible for the Corporation to institute accounting controls over cash collections from casual passengers prior to initial entry of the collections in the accounting records. Accordingly, it was impracticable for us to extend our examination beyond the receipts actually recorded. Under these circumstances it was not possible to confirm the completeness of casual passenger revenue amounting to R13 598 611 (2007: R11 118 716) recognised in the annual financial statements. Qualified opinion 10. In my opinion, except for the effects of the matters described in the Basis for qualified opinion paragraphs, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Mayibuye Transport Corporation as at 31 March 2008 and its financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended, in accordance with the South African Statements of Generally Accepted Accounting Practice and in the manner required by the PFMA and the Ciskeian Corporations Act, 1981 (Act No. 16 of 1981) as amended by the Corporations Transitional Provisions Act, 1995 (Act No. 12 of 1995).

Emphasis of matter I draw attention to the following matter: Highlighting critically important matters presented or disclosed in the financial statements 11. Capital improvements to the Zwelitsha Depot has been recognised as leasehold land and buildings with a carrying value of R 1 100 000 in note 3 to the annual financial statements. A process for acquisition of the title deed has been initialised with the Land Claims Commission. Although the entities right to occupy the land has not been reduced to writing, it derives benefits from its use and carries the risks that are incidental to ownership.

OTHER MATTERS I draw attention to the following matters that relate to my responsibilities in the audit of the financial statements: Internal conrols 13. Section 51(1)(a)(i) of the PFMA states that the accounting authority must ensure that the public entity has and maintains effective, efficient and transparent systems of financial and risk management and internal control. The table below depicts the root causes that gave rise to the inefficiencies in the system of internal control, which lead to the qualified opinion. The root causes are categorised according to the five components of an effective system of internal control. In some instances deficiencies exist in more than one internal control component.

Control environment: Establishes the foundation for the internal control system by providing fundamental discipline and structure for financial reporting. Risk assessment: Involves the identification and analysis by management of relevant financial reporting risks to achieving predetermined financial reporting objectives. Control activities: Policies, procedures and practices that ensure managements financial reporting objectives are achieved and financial reporting risk mitigation strategies are carried out. Information and communication: Supports all other control components by communicating control responsibilities for financial reporting to employees and by providing financial reporting information in a form and time frame that allows people to carry out their financial reporting duties. Monitoring: Covers external oversight of internal controls over financial reporting by management or other parties outside the process; or the application of independent methodologies, like customized procedures or standard checklists, by employees within a process.

Matters of governance 14. Section 55(1) of the PFMA requires that the financial statements be prepared in accordance with generally recognised accounting practice. Fundamental to achieving this is the implementation of certain key governance responsibilities, which I have assessed as follows:

Matter of governance

Yes

No

Audit committee The Corporation has an audit committee. The audit committee operates in accordance with written terms of reference. The audit committee substantially fulfilled its responsibilities for the year, as set out in section 77 of the PFMA and Treasury Regulation 3.1.10/27.1.8.

Internal audit The Corporation has an internal audit function. The internal audit function operates in terms of an internal audit plan. The internal audit function substantially fulfilled its responsibilities for the year, as set out in Treasury Regulations 3.2/27.2.

Other matters of governance The financial statements submitted for audit were not subject to any material amendments resulting from the audit. No significant difficulties were experienced during the audit concerning delays/unavailability of expected information and/or unavailability of senior management. Prior year external audit recommendations have been substantially implemented. SCOPA resolutions have been substantially implemented. OTHER REPORTING RESPONSIBILITIES REPORT ON PERFORMANCE INFORMATION 15. I have reviewed the performance information as set out on pages xx to xx.

Responsibility of the accounting authority for the performance information 16. The accounting authority has additional responsibilities as required by section 55(2)(a) of the PFMA to ensure that the annual report and audited financial statements fairly present the performance against predetermined objectives of the public entity.

Responsibility of the Auditor-General 17. 18. I conducted my engagement in accordance with section 13 of the PAA read with General Notice 616 of 2008, issued in Government Gazette No. 31057 of 15 May 2008. In terms of the foregoing my engagement included performing procedures of an audit nature to obtain sufficient appropriate evidence about the performance information and related systems, processes and procedures. The procedures selected depend on the auditors judgement. I believe that the evidence I have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for the audit findings reported below.

19.

Audit findings Performance management policy not documented 20. There is no formal documented policy in respect of the performance management system.

No alignment of predetermined objectives with individual staff performance valuations 21. The performance management system is not structured in a manner so as to ensure the performance of the entity in all its facets, is measured and reported on from its strategic objectives down to the assessment of individual staff performance evaluations in terms of job descriptions. APPRECIATION The assistance rendered by the staff of Mayibuye Transport Corporation during the audit is sincerely appreciated.

ACCOUNTING POLICY NOTES PRESENTATION OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS These financial statements are presented in South African Rand [R] since that is the functional currency in which the transactions are denominated.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES The Annual Financial Statements are prepared under the historical cost convention, other than certain financial instruments, and incorporate the following principal accounting policies, which have been consistently applied in all material respect. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with South African Statements of Generally Accepted Accounting Practice. The principal accounting policies adopted remained unchanged from the previous year except as listed below:

2.1

Changes in accounting policy and disclosures The company has adopted the following new and amended IFRS and IFRIC interpretations during the year. Adoption of these revised standards and interpretations did not have any effect on the financial performance or position of the company. They did however give rise to additional disclosures, including in some cases, revisions to accounting policies. IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosure IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements - Capital Disclosures IFRIC 8 (AC441), Scope of IFRS2 (effective 1 May 2006) IFRIC 9 (AC442), Re-assessment of Embedded Derivatives (effective 1 June 2006) IFRIC 10 (AC443), Interim Financial Reporting and Impairment (effective 1 November 2006) IFRIC 11, IFRS 2 - Company and Treasury Share Transactions The principal effects of these changes are as follows: IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures This standard requires disclosures that enable users of the financial statements to evaluate the significance of the company's financial instruments and the nature and extent of risks arising from those financial instruments. The new disclosures are included throughout the financial statements. While there has been no effect on the financial position or results, comparative information has been revised where needed. IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements This amendment requires the company to make new disclosures to enable users of the

Page 54 of 87

Mayibuye Transport Corporation Annual Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2008

financial statements to evaluate the company's objectives, policies and processes for managing capital. IFRIC 8 Scope of IFRS 2 This interpretation requires IFRS 2 to be applied to any arrangements in which the entity cannot identify specifically some or all of the goods received, in particular where equity instruments are issued for consideration which appears to be less than fair value. As equity instruments are only issued to employees in accordance with the employee share scheme, the interpretation had no impact on the financial position or performance of the company. This statement has had no effect on the current year financial statements. IFRIC 9 Reassessment of Embedded Derivatives IFRIC 9 states that the date to assess the existence of an embedded derivative is the date that an entity first becomes a party to the contract, with reassessment only if there is a change to the contract that significantly modifies the cash flows. As the company has no embedded derivative requiring separation from the host contract, the interpretation had no impact on the financial position or performance of the company. This statement has had no effect on the current year financial statements. IFRIC 10 Interim Financial Reporting and Impairment The company adopted IFRIC Interpretation 10 as of 1 January 2007, which requires that an entity must not reverse an impairment loss recognised in a previous interim period in respect of goodwill or an investment in either an equity instrument or a financial asset carried at cost. As the company had no impairment losses previously reversed, the interpretation had no impact on the financial position or performance of the company. This statement has had no effect on the current year financial statements. IFRIC 11 IFRS 2 - Company and Treasury Share Transactions The company adopted IFRIC 11 which requires arrangements whereby an employee is granted rights to an entity's equity instruments to be accounted for as an equity-settled scheme, even if the entity buys the instruments from another party, or the shareholders provide the equity instruments needed. No such arrangement exists and hence this interpretation has had no impact on the company. 2.2 Irregular and fruitless and wasteful expenditure Irregular expenditure means expenditure incurred in contravention of, or not in accordance with a requirement of any applicable legislation, including: The Public Finance Management Act, or Any provincial legislation providing for procurement procedures in that provincial government. Fruitless and wasteful expenditure means expenditure that was made in vain and would have been avoided had reasonable care been exercised.

Page 55 of 87

Mayibuye Transport Corporation Annual Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2008

All irregular and fruitless and wasteful expenditure is recognised in profit and loss in the period in which it is incurred and where recovered, it is subsequently accounted for as revenue in the Income Statement. 2.3 Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents are measured at fair value. Cash in the balance sheet comprises cash at bank and on hand and short-term deposits held by the Corporation. For the purposes of the cash flow statement, cash and cash equivalents consist of cash and cash equivalents as defined above. 2.4 Revenue recognition Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable. Revenue is reduced for estimated customer returns, rebates and other similar allowances. Revenue is recognised to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the entity and the revenue can be reliably measured. When the outcome of a transaction involving the rendering of services can be estimated reliably, revenue associated with the transaction will be recognised by reference to the stage of completion of the transaction at the balance sheet date. Revenue from the sale of bus tickets and bus hiring is recognised when the significant risks and rewards of ownership are transferred to the buyer. Interest income is accrued on a time basis, by reference to the principal outstanding and at the interest rate applicable, except for interest earned on capital funding which is disclosed separately. Dividend income from investments is recognised when the shareholder's rights to receive payment have been established. 2.5 Leasing Operating lease payments are recognised as an expense in profit or loss on a straight line basis over the lease term. 2.6 Deferred income Government grants represent monthly transfer payments from the Eastern Cape Department of Roads and Transport in order to subsidise the Corporation's public transport service.

Page 56 of 87

Mayibuye Transport Corporation Annual Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2008

Government grants are recognised when there is reasonable assurance that the entity will comply with the conditions related to them and that the grants will be received. Grants related to income are recognised in the Income Statement as other income over the periods necessary to match them with the related costs that they are intended to compensate. The timing of such recognition in the Income Statement will depend on the fulfilment of any conditions or obligations attached to the grant. Grants related to assets are presented as deferred income in the Balance Sheet. The Income Statement will be affected either by reduced deprecation charge or by deferred income being recognised as income systematically over the useful life of the related asset. 2.7 Defined contribution plans The cost of defined contribution plans is the contribution payable by the employer for that accounting period. Contribution to a defined contribution plan, in respect of service in a particular period, is recognised as an expense in that period. 2.8 Taxation No provision has been made for taxation as the entity is a tax exempt institution in terms of section 10 (a) of the Income Tax Act No. 58 of 1962. 2.9 Property, plant and equipment Buildings, plant and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses. Such cost includes the cost of replacing part of the plant and equipment when that cost is incurred, if the recognition criteria are met. All other repair and maintenance costs are recognised in profit or loss as incurred. Land is not depreciated as it is deemed to have an indefinite life. Items of property, plant and equipment are depreciated using the straight line basis at rates that will reduce the book values to estimated residual values over the anticipated useful lives of the assets concerned. The principal annual rates used for this purpose are: Ancillary Vehicles Buses - Body Buses - Chassis, Engine, etc Office Equipment Office Furniture Operating Equipment Workshop Equipment Buildings 25% 12.5% 8.33% 20% 10% 20% 25% 2%

An item of plant and equipment is derecognised upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected to arise from the continued use of the asset. Inferior equipment is written off in full in the year it is acquired. Surpluses or deficits on the disposal of assets are credited or charged to income. The surplus or deficit is the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset.

Page 57 of 87

Mayibuye Transport Corporation Annual Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2008

Subsequent expenditure relating to property, plant and equipment is capitalised if the subsequent expenditure meets the definition of an asset. 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 and shall be depreciated according to their different useful life. The gains and losses arising from the de-recognition of property, plant and equipment (difference between carrying amount less any revaluation surpluses and net disposal proceeds) are included in surplus or deficit when the item is derecognized. The residual value and the useful life of each asset are reviewed and adjusted at balance sheet date. The depreciation charge for each year is recognized in surplus and deficit unless it is included in the carrying amount of another asset. 2.10 Impairment of non-financial assets The company assesses at each reporting date whether there is an indication that an asset may be impaired. If any such indication exists, or when annual impairment testing for an asset is required, the company estimates the assets recoverable amount. An assets recoverable amount is the higher of an assets or cash-generating units fair value less costs to sell and its value in use and is determined for an individual asset, unless the asset does not generate cash inflows that are largely independent of those from other assets or group of assets. Where the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its recoverable amount, the asset is considered impaired and is written down to its recoverable amount. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows 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. In determining fair value less costs to sell, an appropriate valuation model is used. For an asset that does not generate cash inflows that are largely independent of those from other assets the recoverable amount is determined for the cash-generating unit to which the asset belongs. An impairment loss is recognised in the income statement whenever the carrying amount of the cash-generating unit exceeds recoverable amount. A previously recognised impairment loss is reversed if the recoverable amount increases as a result of a change in the estimates used to determine the recoverable amount, but not to an amount higher than the carrying amount that would have been determined (net of depreciation) had no impairment loss been recognised in prior years. 2.11 Inventories Inventories are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is calculated using the weighted average method. Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale. Inventory cost includes the costs of purchase of inventories comprising the purchase price, levies, pressing and storage. Trade discounts, rebates and other similar items are

Page 58 of 87

Mayibuye Transport Corporation Annual Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2008

deducted in determining the costs of purchase. 2.12 Financial Instruments

2.12.1 Investments and Financial Assets Financial assets within the scope of IAS 39 are classified as financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, loans and receivables, held-to-maturity investments, or availablefor-sale financial assets, as appropriate. When financial assets are recognised initially, they are measured at fair value, plus, in the case of investments not at fair value through profit or loss, directly attributable transaction costs. The company determines the classification of its financial assets on initial recognition and, where allowed and appropriate, re-evaluates this designation at each financial year end. 2.12.2 Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss includes financial assets held for trading and financial assets designated upon initial recognition as at fair value through profit or loss. Financial assets are classified as held for trading if they are acquired for the purpose of selling in the near term. Derivatives, including separated embedded derivatives are also classified as held for trading unless they are designated as effective hedging instruments or a financial guarantee contract. Gains or losses on investments held for trading are recognised in profit or loss. 2.12.3 Held-to-maturity investments Non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments and fixed maturities are classified as held-to-maturity when the company has the positive intention and ability to hold to maturity. After initial measurement 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 investments are derecognised or impaired, as well as through the amortisation process. 2.12.4 Loans and receivables Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. After initial measurement loans and receivables are carried at amortised cost using the effective interest method less any allowance for impairment. Gains and losses are recognised in profit or loss when the loans and receivables are derecognised or impaired, as well as through the amortisation process.

Page 59 of 87

Mayibuye Transport Corporation Annual Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2008

2.12.5 Available-for-sale financial investments Available-for-sale financial assets are those non-derivative financial assets that are designated as available-for-sale or are not classified in any of the three preceding categories. After initial measurement, available-for-sale financial assets are measured at fair value with unrealised gains or losses recognised directly in equity until the investment is derecognised or determined to be impaired at which time the cumulative gain or loss previously recorded in equity is recognised in profit or loss. 2.12.6 Amortised cost Held-to-maturity investments and loans and receivables are measured at amortised cost. This is computed using the effective interest method less any allowance for impairment. The calculation takes into account any premium or discount on acquisition and includes transaction costs and fees that are an integral part of the effective interest rate. 2.13 Impairment of financial assets The company assesses at each balance sheet date whether a financial asset or group of financial assets is impaired. 2.13.1 Assets carried at amortised cost If there is objective evidence that an impairment loss on assets carried at amortised cost has been incurred, the amount of the 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 carrying amount of the asset is reduced through use of an allowance account. The amount of the loss shall be recognised in profit or loss. 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 value of the asset does not exceed its amortised cost at the reversal date. Any subsequent reversal of an impairment loss is recognised in profit or loss. In relation to trade receivables, a provision for impairment is made when there is objective evidence that the company will not be able to collect all of the amounts due under the original terms of the invoice. The carrying amount of the receivable is reduced through use of an allowance account. Impaired debts are derecognised when they are assessed as uncollectible.

Mayibuye Transport Corporation Annual Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2008

2.13.2 Available-for-sale financial investments If an available-for-sale asset is impaired, an amount comprising the difference between its cost and its current fair value, less any impairment loss previously recognised in profit or loss, is transferred from equity to profit or loss. Reversals in respect of equity instruments classified as available-for-sale are not recognised in profit or loss. Reversals of impairment losses on debt instruments are reversed through profit or loss, if the increase in fair value of the instrument can be objectively related to an event occurring after the impairment loss was recognised in profit or loss. 2.14 Financial liabilities and equity instruments

2.14.1 Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss Financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss includes financial liabilities held for trading and financial liabilities designated upon initial recognition as at fair value through profit or loss. Financial liabilities are classified as held for trading if they are acquired for the purpose of selling in the near term. Gains or losses on liabilities held for trading are recognised in profit or loss. 2.14.2 Derecognition of financial assets and liabilities Financial assets A financial asset (or, where applicable a part of a financial asset or part of a group of similar financial assets) is derecognised when: the rights to receive cash flows from the asset have expired; the corporation retains the right to receive cash flows from the asset, but has assumed an obligation to pay them in full without material delay to a third party under a pass through arrangement; or the corporation has transferred its rights to receive cash flows from the asset and either (a) has transferred substantially all the risks and rewards of the asset, or (b) has neither transferred nor retained substantially all the risks and rewards of the asset, but has transferred control of the asset. Financial liabilities A financial liability is derecognised when the obligation under the liability is discharged or cancelled or expires. 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. 2.15 Future changes to accounting policies IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements - revised A revised IAS 1 Presentation of financial statement was issued in March 2007, and becomes effective for financial years beginning on or after 1 January 2009. Changes to the presentation of financial statements include renaming of the following: Statement of financial position to replace the name balance sheet, Statement of comprehensive income to replace the name income statement and; Statement of cash flows to replace the name cash flow statement. Other changes: Statement of changes in equity to include only transactions with owners, Statement of comprehensive income to contain non-owner changes in equity, Reclassifications to be separately disclosed, Three statements of financial position required if retrospective changes in accounting policy or retrospective restatement / reclassification. Further to the abovementioned revisions, an additional revision was issued in September 2007 and becomes effective for financial years beginning on or after 1 January 2009. The Standard separates owner and non-owner changes in equity. The statement of changes in equity will include only details of transactions with owners, with all nonowner changes in equity presented as a single line. In addition, the standard introduces the statement of comprehensive income: it presents all items of income and expense recognised in profit or loss, together with all other items of recognised income and expense, either in one single statement, or in two linked statements. The company is still evaluating whether it will have one or two statements. IAS 23 Borrowing Costs A revised IAS 23 Borrowing Costs was issued in March 2007, and becomes effective for financial years beginning on or after 1 January 2009. The standard has been revised to require capitalisation of borrowing costs when such costs relate to a qualifying asset. A qualifying asset is an asset that necessarily takes a substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use or sale. In accordance with the transitional requirements in the Standard, the company will adopt this as a prospective change. Accordingly, borrowing costs will be capitalised on qualifying assets with a commencement date after 1 January 2009. No changes will be made for borrowing costs incurred to this date that have been expensed.

IFRIC 12 Service Concession Arrangements IFRIC Interpretation 12 was issued in November 2006 and becomes effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2008. This Interpretation applies to service concession operators and explains how to account for the obligations undertaken and rights received in service concession arrangements. No member of the company is an operator and hence this Interpretation will have no impact on the company. IFRS 8 Operating Segments IFRS 8 was issued in November 2006 and becomes effective for financial years beginning on or after 1 January 2009. This standard requires disclosure of information about the company's operating segments and replaced the requirement to determine primary (business) and secondary (geographical) reporting segments of the company. The company expects that this standard will have no impact on the company's financial statements. IFRIC 13 Customer Loyalty Programmes IFRIC Interpretation 13 was issued in June 2007 and becomes effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 July 2008. This Interpretation requires customer loyalty award credits to be accounted for as a separate component of the sales transaction in which they are granted and therefore part of the fair value of the consideration received is allocated to the award credits and deferred over the period that the award credits are fulfilled. The company expects that this interpretation will have no impact on the company's financial statements as no such schemes currently exist. IFRIC 14 IAS 19 - The Limit on a Defined Benefit Asset, Minimum Funding Requirements and their Interaction IFRIC Interpretation 14 was issued in July 2007 and becomes effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2008. This Interpretation provides guidance on how to assess the limit on the amount of surplus in a defined benefit scheme that can be recognised as an asset under IAS 19 Employee Benefits. The company expects that this Interpretation will have no impact on the financial position or performance of the company as the company does not have any defined benefit schemes. IFRS 2 Share-based Payments Vesting Conditions and Cancellations This amendment to IFRS 2 Share-based payments was published in January 2008 and becomes effective for financial years beginning on or after 1 January 2009. The Standard restricts the definition of vesting condition to a condition that includes an explicit or implicit requirement to provide services. Any other conditions are non-vesting conditions, which have to be taken into account to determine the fair value of the equity instruments granted. In the case that the award does not vest as the result of a failure to meet a non-vesting condition that is within the control of either the entity or the counterparty, this must be accounted for as a cancellation. The company expects that this standard will have no impact on the financial position or performance of the company as the company has not entered into any share-based payment schemes.

IFRS 3R Business Combinations and IAS 27R Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements The revised standards were issued in January 2008 and become effective for financial years beginning on or after 1 July 2009. IFRS 3R introduces a number of changes in the accounting for business combinations that will impact the amount of goodwill recognised, the reported results in the period that an acquisition occurs, and future reported results. IAS 27R requires that a change in the ownership interest of a subsidiary is accounted for as an equity transaction. Therefore, such a change will have no impact on goodwill, nor will it give raise to a gain or loss. Furthermore, the amended standard changes the accounting for losses incurred by the subsidiary as well as the loss of control of a subsidiary. The changes introduced by IFRS 3R and IAS 27R must be applied prospectively and will affect future acquisitions and transactions with minority interests. These amendments will not impact the financial statements of the company. Amendments to IAS 32 and IAS 1 Puttable Financial Instruments Amendments to IAS 32 and IAS 1 were issued in February 2008 and become effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2009. The amendment to IAS 32 requires certain puttable financial instruments and obligations arising on liquidation to be classified as equity if certain criteria are met. The amendment to IAS 1 requires disclosure of certain information relating to puttable instruments classified as equity. The company does not expect these amendments to impact the financial statements of the company. 2.16 Key management assumptions, estimates and judgements The preparation of financial statements requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its judgement in the process of applying the companys accounting policies. The areas involving a higher degree of judgement or complexity, or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the financial statements, are disclosed. The key assumptions, estimates and judgements concerning the future and other key sources of estimation uncertainty at the balance sheet date, that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amount of the assets and liabilities within the next financial year are discussed below. The residual values and estimated useful lives of property, plant and equipment were assessed and found to be reasonable. Residual values of motor vehicles are determined with reference to market related prices of vehicles in a similar condition.

FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES The Corporation's principal financial liabilities comprise of trade and other payables. The main purpose of these financial liabilities is to recognise amounts payable by the Corporation. The Corporation has various financial assets such as trade and other receivables and cash and short-term deposits, which arise directly from its operations. The Entity has no significant concentration of credit risk, with exposure spread over a large number of counterparties and customer. The main risks arising from the companys financial instruments are cash flow interest rate risk, liquidity risk and credit risk. The Board of Directors reviews and agrees policies for managing each of these risks which are summarised below. Interest rate risk The Corporation is not exposed to interest rate risk as it has no long-term debt obligations. Credit risk management The entity trades only with recognised, creditworthy third parties. Receivable balances are monitored on an ongoing basis with the result that the entity's exposure to bad debts is not significant. The maximum exposure is the carrying amount as disclosed in Note 3. There are no significant concentrations of credit risk within the company. With respect to credit risk arising from the other financial assets of the company, which comprise of cash and short-term deposits, the entity's exposure to credit risk arises from default of the counterparty, with a maximum exposure equal to the carrying amount of these instruments. Liquidity risk The entity monitors its risk to a shortage of funds by considering the maturity of both its financial assets and projected cash flows from operations. The entity's objective is to maintain a balance between continuity of funding and flexibility through use of the grant-inaid funding. Foreign currency risk The Corporation is not exposed to foreign currency risk. Capital management The primary objective of the Corporation's capital management is to ensure that it continue to provide a safe and reliable public transport service and to maximise internal revenue collection.

GOING CONCERN We draw attention to the fact that at 31 March 2008, the Corporation had an accumulated deficit of R54,684,609 (2007: R57,264,813). The financial statements have been prepared on the basis of accounting policies applicable to a going concern. This basis presumes that funds will be available to finance future operations and that the realisation of assets and settlement of liabilities, contingent obligations and commitments will occur in the ordinary course of business. The ability of the Corporation to continue as a going concern is dependent on a number of factors. The most significant of these is that the directors continue to procure funding for the ongoing operations of the Corporation by recapitalisation of the bus fleet in order to increase revenues, as well as negotiations and pro-active budgeting and communication thereof to the Department of Roads and Transport, in an effort to obtain additional funding in the form of unconditional grants.

DEFINED BENEFIT PLAN CONVERSION During the year under review, the Corporation converted its defined benefit plan to a defined contribution plan. The defined benefit plan required the Corporation to settle any liability that may arise in the fund. Upon conversion the Corporation's open liability ceased. The assets and liabilities of the defined benefit plan were transferred to the defined contribution plan in terms of section 14 of the Financial Services Board Act. The transfer can only occur upon approval from the Financial Services Board. The defined contribution plan only requires the Corporation to settle the agreed contributions. The defined contribution plan settles the benefits and the members bear the investment risk. The Corporation is not required to settle any liability if one should arose.

Transactions with audit committee members are disclosed in note 14.2 and 14.3 and were not disclosed in the prior year. Cost of services rendered were not disclosed in the prior year but is disclosed in the current year income statement. The deferred income and interest received disclosed in the cash flow statement for the prior year has been included in note 15. PRIOR PERIOD ERRORS Restatement of deferred income The Corporation has chosen to recognise capital grant income systematically over the useful lives of assets. The basis of accounting for deferred income was not applied correctly in previous years as the amounts of income recognised did not match annual depreciation charges. The financial statements have been restated to correct this error. The effect of the restatement on the financial statements is summarised below: 2008 R Increase / (Decrease) in opening accumulated deficit Increase / (Decrease) in other income Increase / (Decrease) in Deferred income 2,101,918 2,101,918 2007 R 20,517,868 1,729,206 22,247,074

22.2

Restatement of Property, Plant and Equipment In previous years the Corporation failed to apply the provisions of IAS 16 Property, Plant and Equipment. Management did not revise the useful lives, depreciation rates and residual values annually as is required by IAS 16. In some instances inadequate residual values were assigned to items of Property, Plant and Equipment. As a result, the depreciation expense was incorrectly allocated to income as it did not reflect the pattern in which the Corporation consumed the economic benefits inherent in the cost of the asset. In the current year management revised the useful lives, depreciation rates and residual values of Property, Plant and Equipment. The financial statements have been restated to correct this error. The effect of the restatement on the financial statements is summarised below: 2008 R Increase / (Decrease) in accumulated deficit Increase / (Decrease) in depreciation Increase / (Decrease) in NBV of Property, Plant and Equipment (160,904) 160,904 2007 R (492,561) 16,497,219

Restatement of comparative period goods received note accrual The prior period good received note accrual was overstated due to duplicate processing of goods received.
