STATEMENT CHAIRMANS STATEMENT


2010 Annual Report 2010

CHAIRMANS STATEMENT
We have to acknowledge that the excellent financial performance for the Year 2010 resulted from the combination of our great effort and luck. According to our business plan for the Year 2010, we aim to expand our business volume as well as our revenue base. This is because we expect that revenue from securities brokerage business will definitely decline as the Year 2010 is the first year securities brokerage fee would be determined on a sliding scale basis. In other words, if securities trading value stays the same, securities brokerage revenue will decline. Thus, we need to expand our market share in the securities brokerage business as well as looking for potential business opportunities. Luckily, trading activities on the SET became healthy and lively as total trading value in the Year 2010 rose by 58.80 % compared to that in the Year 2009. Total trading value rose from Baht 8.86 trillion in the Year 2009 to Baht 14.07 trillion in the Year 2010. Such high trading value was beyond our expectation as almost every business sector was adversely affected by domestic political turmoil between March to May 2010. Such adverse incident was a good test for the readiness of our operating system to run under abnormal situation or serious unrest such as demonstration around our head office located in the Offices of Central World. Due to such abnormal situation, we had to relocate our employees and some parts of our operation to our new temporary office for a month. Despite this, every of our executives and employees still demonstrated their responsibility and tolerance to work hard to serve our clients. We are proud we can serve our clients during the political crisis despite some obstacle and inconvenience. Ironically, during such abnormal period, our market share in the securities brokerage business increased. High trading value of the entire market was higher than our expectation despite domestic political crisis and unrest in the 3 southern provinces of the country. We can achieve our business objective as our market share in the domestic securities brokerage business rose from 10.68 % in 2009 to 12.76 % in 2010. Our securities trading value also rose from Baht 922,859 million in the Year 2009 to Baht 1,579,681 million in the Year 2010, an increase in terms of trading value by 71.17 % which was higher than that of the overall market. Other revenue also increased from Baht 245.07 million in 2009 to Baht 423.28 million in 2010. We also earned a Baht 51.67 million gain from trading derivative instruments in the Year 2010. Combination between our effort and luck resulted in an increase by 14.50 % in terms of our net profit. Our net profit rose from Baht 716.74 million in 2009 to Baht 820.77 million in 2010. Joint effort between our management and every employee as well as great support from our clients played an important role in helping us to maintain our position as No.1 domestic securities brokerage house for 9 years in a row. We were also awarded Best Broker 2010 Award from Finance Asia Magazine.

STATEMENT CHAIRMANS STATEMENT


2010 Annual Report 2010
Our great success in the Year 2010 also resulted from one important factor that is tolerance of executives and employees who had to work under abnormal situation due to domestic political unrest as well as that of every client. In this opportunity, we would like to thank our executives, employees and clients and hope everyone will have a great time forever.

The Year 2010 is the first year that domestic securities brokerage business is liberalized. Determination of securities brokerage fee on a sliding scale basis has implemented since January 2010. This resulted in a decline in securities brokerage rate by 30 % on average for the entire industry. Fortunately, a sharp increase in securities trading volume more than offset such decline in securities brokerage rate, thus resulting in increase in securities brokerage fee for the overall industry in the Year 2010. Average daily trading value on the SET for the Year 2010 was Baht 29,066 million, an increase from that for the Year 2009 which was Baht 18,266 million. In the Year 2010, the Company could still its highest market share in the domestic securities brokerage business, with a market share of 12.76 % of total trading value. For the Year 2010, trading by domestic retail investors, domestic institutional investors, foreign investors and securities broker (proprietary trading) accounted for 62 .0 %, 7.6 %, 18.40 % and 12.0 % of total trading value respectively.

The Business of Debt Issuance and Trading


For the Year 2010, total issuance amount of domestic debt instruments was Baht 11.62 trillion, an increase by 6.84 % in terms of issuance amount when compared to that in the Year 2009. Total outstanding amount of domestic debt instruments registered with the Thai BMA as of December 30, 2010 was Baht 6.76 trillion, an increase by 15.11 % when compared with that at the end of 2009.

Amount of government bonds outstanding in 2010 increased by 18.41 % when compared with that in 2009.

This represented an increase by 32.54 % when compared with that in 2009. Amount of corporate debt instruments (including long-term and short-term bonds) outstanding was Baht 1.19 trillion.

This represented an increase by 15 % when compared with that in 2009.

Trading activity in the SET for the Year 2010 increased substantially although the SET Index moved in a narrow range during the first five months of the year due to political turmoil during April to May. However, in the Year 2010, the SET was the second best performer in Asia, with the yearly return of 40.60 % thanks to domestic investor confidence and continual domestic and foreign fund inflows into the SET. For the Year 2010, the SET Index closed at 1,032.76, an increase by 40.60 % from that at the end of 2009. In 2010, the SET was the second best performer in Asia. The SET closed at the lowest point in February 2010 at 685.89 and closed at the highest point in November 2010 at 1,049.79 For the MAI, the index closed at 272.79, an increase by 26.70 % from that at the end of 2009. During the early months of 2010, the Thai bourse was adversely affected by several negative factors including internal factors such as suspension of industrial projects in the Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate by the Central Administration Court and domestic political tension and external factors such as fear that the Sub-Prime Crisis will spread to other regions, the Dubai Crisis and the public debt crisis in Greece. Despite such negative factors, the SET Index could still move in the narrow range thanks to positive factors such as recovery of the global economy, strong Asian economy and sound recovery of the domestic economy. Fund raising activities via the equity market in 2010 became strong thanks to recovery of the domestic economy and trading activity in the SET. For the Year 2010, 11 firms raised funds via IPO, with 4 companies listed on the SET and 7 companies listed on the MAI. Four new property funds, with total fund-raising amount of Baht 12,587.56 million, were listed on the SET. For the Year 2009, 17 new companies and 5 new property funds were listed on the Thai bourse.

Currently, TFEX offers 5 exchanged-traded derivatives products, namely, SET50 Index Futures, SET50 Index Options, Single Stock Futures, Gold Futures and Interest Rate Futures. For the Year 2010, the total volume on TFEX was 4,519,436 contracts. The average daily volume of SET50 Index Futures in the year was 10,212 contracts, a decrease of 1.6% compared with that of 2009 for 10,381 contracts per day. For SET50 Index Options, the average daily volume was 443 contracts, an increase of 12.7% compared with that of 2009 for 393 contracts per day. For Single Stock Futures, the average daily volume was 4,006 contracts, an increase of 567.7% compared with that of 2009 for 600 contracts per day. For Gold Futures, the average daily volume was 4,014 contracts, an increase of 187.3% compared with that of 2009 for 1,397 contracts per day.

For 2010, the Company ranked Number 3 for derivatives trading in term of market shares that accounted for 7.91% of the total volume in the derivatives market. The total volume for derivatives traded via the Company was 715,188 contracts The whole companys volume is from operating derivatives agent business on behalf of the clients only because the company has neither proprietary trading nor market making activities. The Company has long emphasized expanding its investor base in the derivatives market. It has continuously provided variety of training courses related to derivatives instruments to its clients and general investors. This is because the Company has always been aware that its long-term success in the derivatives business depends upon investors knowledge and understanding in derivatives trading strategies, return & risk related to derivatives investment and their abilities to apply derivatives instruments for investing and hedging purposes. The Company aims to grow concurrently with continuous expansion in the number of investors and client bases. Relating to derivatives investment strategies, the Company continues to produce and publicize daily derivatives research papers both for fundamental research and technical research.

Risk Factors
2010 Annual Report 2010

Risk Factors
Fluctuations in the conditions of international and domestic economies, money markets and capital markets could materially affect the Companys revenue.
The Companys major source revenue is brokerage fee from securities and derivatives business that has been directly related to macroeconomic condition, movements of money and capital markets, trading volume on the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) and investor confidence, all of which are factors that are beyond control of the Company. In the Years 2007, 2008 and 2009, average daily trading values of the SET were Baht 17,436 , 16,118 and 18,226 million consecutively. For the Year 2010, average daily trading value of the SET was Baht 28,668 million, an increase by 57.29 % compared to that in the Year 2009. All factors, including internal and external ones, which adversely affected investor confidence alleviated. For the Years 2008, 2009 and 2010, the Companys total brokerage fees were Baht 1,511 ,2,116 and 2,450 million consecutively. Fluctuations in the economy, the money market and the capital market may be caused by a large number of factors that are beyond control of KEST, including civil unrest in the three most southern provinces of Thailand and political uncertainties. Such factors would negatively affect confidence of both domestic and foreign investors and, as a consequence, may adversely affect the volume of trading on the SET and the MAI, including the amount of funds to be raised and the number of new listings on the SET and the MAI. This could have a material adverse effect on KESTs business, financial condition and result of operation. KEST has mitigated such risk by providing some parts of compensation made to marketing officers and securities traders that vary with trading volume on the SET to reduce its fixed operating costs, expanding its brokerage client base to include both individual and institutional clients and generating revenue from variety of financial advisory services including securities offering, M & A, business takeovers, project feasibility studies, business valuation and securities underwriting. KEST also engages in other businesses to generate additional sources of revenue such as asset management, private fund management and securities borrowing & lending (SBL).

Risk due to Intense Competition in the Securities Business


Securities business has been a quite highly competitive business, especially in the area of securities brokerage one that has long been the Companys major source of revenue. The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has changed brokerage fee structure, specifying a minimum brokerage fee at the rate of 0.25 % of total trading value for the period between January 14, 2002 and January 13, 2007. Later on December 25, 2006, the SET extended the period in which a minimum brokerage fee is still applied for another 5 years. Such period is classified into 1) For the first 3 years (January 1, 2007 to

Pages 52

Back to Content

Risk Factors
2010 Annual Report 2010
December 31, 2009) in which a minimum brokerage fee of 0.25 % is still applied and 2) For the next 2 years (January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2011) in which brokerage fee is determined on a sliding scale basis. In other words, for the period between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2011, the higher the trading value, the lower the rate of the brokerage fee is applied. Thus, from the Year 2010 on, the securities brokerage business will be a highly competitive business in terms of securities brokerage fee. To cope with the increasing level of competition in the securities brokerage business, the Company has put strong effort to improve every area of its service quality, especially Internet trading service. This is because brokerage fee applied to Internet trading has still been lower than that applied to traditional trading service (Internet trading brokerage fee is 60 % of that applied to traditional trading service). The Company has long focused on providing high-quality services with the aim to maintaining and expanding the existing client base. The Company has done so by increasing the quality of research publications, improving and developing skills and capabilities of staff in providing services and recommendations to clients. The Company has continuously upgraded its information system to well respond and satisfy fast-changing client needs. All of these have enabled the Company to be in a good position and well prepared for liberalization of the securities brokerage fee structure that will be effective on January 1, 2012, and thus intensify competition in the securities brokerage industry. Financial advisory and investment banking services and fees have also been competitive in terms of both service quality and advisory fee levels. KEST has provided variety of financial advisory services including securities offering, independent financial advisory, fund raising, M & A, business takeovers, business valuations etc, focusing on provision of high-quality services. The Company has continuously developed and upgraded advisory skills of its IB staff, and this enables it to provide highquality financial advisory services to clients on a continuous basis. KEST was also granted a license to operate business as a derivatives agent in accordance with the Derivatives Act B.E. 2546. It was selected as a member of Thailand Futures Exchange (TFEX) that was launched on April 28, 2006 and Thailand Clearing House (TCH) to operate business as a derivatives agent. This has helped to expand the Companys source of revenue.

In its securities brokerage business, the Company is highly dependent on a small number of large clients.
The Companys top 10 trading clients accounted for 18.95% of total securities brokerage fee income in the year 2009 and 21.77% in 2010. Had KEST lost such big trading clients, its securities brokerage fees for 2009 and 2010 would have fallen by 20.66% and 8.44%, respectively. However, one of the Companys top 10 trading clients was the Kim Eng Holdings Group that is also the major shareholder. Thus, it is quite unlikely that it will lose such a client. As KEST has long realised concentration risks, it has thus aimed to increase the number of trading accounts in order to expand its client base. For the year ended December 31, 2009 and 2010, the total number of KESTs client trading accounts was 73,200 and 90,000, respectively. For 2010, 89.76% of the Companys securities brokerage fees were

Pages 53

Risk Factors
2010 Annual Report 2010
from retail trading business and the remainder from local and foreign institutions. Another source of the Companys operating revenue was from financial advisory and securities underwriting businesses that generated total revenue of Baht 49.59 million, a rise of 21.13 % from the 2009 level. This has helped to generate another source of operating revenue for the Company and allowed it to rely less on securities brokerage business.

Clients may default or delay payment for or transfer of securities and collateral for taking position in futures
For the year ending December 31, 2010, the Companys securities brokerage receivables totaled Baht 7,333.08 million, consisting of clients accounts of Baht 2,636.30 million, margin loans of Baht 4,355.98 million, securities borrowing and lending accounts of Baht 57.34 million and other receivables of Baht 260.06 million, with unearned interest revenue of Baht 34.28 million In addition, the Company had derivatives business receivables amounting Baht 15.20 million outstanding. It classified such securities and derivatives brokerage receivables as doubtful debt in the amount of Baht 277.13 million, accounting for 3.75% of its total securities and derivatives brokerage receivables. Of the total amount of doubtful debt, Baht 271.65 million, of which belonged to Nithiphat Securities Co., Ltd., was incurred prior to acquisition of the ordinary shares of that company by Kim Eng Holdings Limited in 1998, and Baht 5.48 million of which was incurred after the share acquisition by Kim Eng Holdings. The Company tries to collect all doubtful debts as fast as possible, and if it cannot do so, it will file a lawsuit against the defaulting receivables. For the total doubtful debt of Baht 277.13 million, Baht 14.48 and 262.65 million of which were classified as substandard and doubtful debts. The Company established an allowance for doubtful debt in the total amount of Baht 277.01 million, or 100% of the total doubtful debt. In the derivatives agent business, the Company may face the risk that collateral clients put up may not be sufficient to satisfy their debt obligations with TCH. Thus, KEST, as a derivatives agent, is obligated to follow and collect more collateral from clients to satisfy debts incurred as a result of loss from holding a position in futures. Nevertheless, KEST has implemented many policies aimed to mitigate default risk as a result of securities and derivatives trading. It has done so by focusing on selecting high-quality clients and specifying trading limits for securities and derivatives that well correspond to securities collateral amount, clients financial status, their abilities to repay debts, liquidity conditions and investment experience. KEST has regularly reviewed and closely monitored the receivables status.

Risk Associated with Margin Account under the Credit Balance System
In extending margin loans to securities trading clients, the Company may face the risk that margin clients may default their repayments, especially in the case that value of securities put as collateral

Pages 54

Risk Factors
2010 Annual Report 2010
falls below their outstanding margin amount. Normally, such repayment default will not occur under the credit balance system as margin clients are required to maintain their maintenance margin in accordance with conditions as prescribed by the Company and relevant regulators. If the proportion of collateral to outstanding margin amount falls below the prescribed ratio, the procedures related to call margin and force sell will apply respectively. Nevertheless, some adverse abnormal situation may occur, thus leading to a sharp decline in value of securities put as collateral such that the system of maintenance margin cannot cope with it. To manage this risk, the Company formulates and applies clear and stringent policies in selecting securities allowed to be traded under margin system as well as prescribing initial margin for such securities. The Company does not allow its clients to trade risky/speculative securities under margin system. The Company also prescribes ceiling margin amount for each client in trading a particular securities. Margin loans amount as of December 31, 2008, 2009 and 2010 was Baht 788.40, 2,037.24 and 4,355.98 million respectively. Margin loans amount outstanding may vary each year, depending upon trading activities on the SET. For the period that margin loans amount outstanding sharply increases, the Company well realizes about potential risk associated with margin account. The Company well complies with policies/measures in dealing with this risk as described in the previous paragraph stringently. In the past, the Company never faces serious damage due to extending margin loans.

Any failure in computer systems may disrupt the Companys securities brokerage business operations
To operate its securities brokerage business, the Company relies heavily on its computer systems. Main computer systems that have supported the Companys operation of securities trading are comprised of 1) HiTrade that is connected to the SET for securities trading on a real-time basis. It enables securities marketing officers and clients to closely monitor share price movement, to submit trading orders and check trading order status. HiTrade is connected to the Internet, thus allowing clients to monitor share price movement and submit trading orders via the Internet as well. 2) The computer system that is connected to TFEX and enables securities marketing officers to submit trading orders for futures contracts on behalf of their clients and the computer system that is connected to SET Trade that allows clients to submit their trading orders via the Internet. 3) Share settlement systems for transactions between clients and TSD, namely the Securities Back Office Automation, or SBA. If the Companys computer systems fail, the operation of the Company in the securities brokerage service will be materially affected. To mitigate such risk, the Company set up a backup system as well as back ups of important information, both of which enable the Company to operate smoothly in case of a failure of the main system. To connect the main offices computer system and those of the branch offices, the Company has a back up leased line that can switch when the leased-line fails. As well, the Company has a contingency plan that allows the use of a back-up computer system when contingency plans are implemented.

Risk Factors
2010 Annual Report 2010
As an underwriter, the Company is required to subscribe for unsubscribed securities that may expose it to large losses

In relation to investment banking business in which the Company acts as an underwriter, it assumes an underwriting risk that may require it to purchase any unsubscribed securities for its own account. This may be due to inappropriate pricing and fluctuations in both money and capital markets. If, in the future, the Company is required to purchase underwritten securities for its own account, it may result in significant losses that could have a material adverse effect on its financial condition, particularly the net capital ratio, and its results on operations. To mitigate this risk, prior to participating as an underwriter for any securities, the Company conducts a study and analysis of the business potential of issuers as well as client interest, and the Company will act as underwriter for securities only with minimal risk of securities under subscription. In case the Company acts as underwriter for securities at significant amounts, approval for securities underwriting from the Underwriting Committee needs to be obtained prior to the Companys acting as underwriter. In acting as underwriter and/or financial advisor, the Company has put emphasis on selecting clients. Prior to accepting any new clients, the Company will conduct a preliminary assessment and due diligence on the business potential as well as financial performance of the clients. The Companys IB staff are well accustomed with relevant applicable law and regulations, and this enables them to provide high-quality and accurate services to clients.

The Companys business may be affected by an error or the misconduct of an employee that is difficult to check and prevent
The Companys business is highly dependent upon its reputation and the trust of its clients. Employees are regularly in direct contact with clients and have knowledge of, or access to, the clients assets or information. Accordingly, when an employee does not carry out his or her duties in accordance with a clients orders or acts beyond his or her authority or does not act in compliance with the Companys rules and regulations including its compliance manual or commits misconduct in managing clients assets or uses the clients information without permission or other actions that may harm client interests, the Companys reputation and the trust of other clients may be adversely affected. The Company may also become liable for the losses incurred by the clients in question. In addition, certain actions may be made in breach of relevant laws or regulations and may result in the Company becoming liable to pay fines, losing its license or being subject to litigation, all of which may have a materially adverse effect on the Companys financial condition and result of operations. To deal with this risk, the Company has regularly monitored working activities of employees and will punish any employee who violates these Companys rules. In the Year 2008, there

Pages 56

Risk Factors
2010 Annual Report 2010
was no case such that the Companys staff failed to comply with or violated applicable rules and regulations that may cause detrimental effects to the Companys operation.

The Company operates its businesses under stringent laws and regulations, including regulations that impose liability on its operations that could have an adverse effect on its results of operations and financial condition
The securities business is strictly controlled by laws and regulations from government authorities, the Office of the SEC and the SET. As a result, any establishment or change of government policy or of the supervisory roles of the relevant regulatory bodies may affect the Companys goals, competitiveness and business and could have a materially adverse effect on the business, financial condition and result of operations of the Company. Moreover, the Company may incur liabilities resulting from the operation of its business, such as from mistakes arising from the performance of its duties as financial advisor or underwriter or from its failure to comply with steps in accepting securities purchase or sales orders from clients. The Company can not insure that if the Company became liable, it would not face serious liability or a possible business license risk, either of which could have serious a material effect on its business and its reputation. To mitigate this risk, the Companys Internal Audit Department has closely monitored changes in laws and regulations relevant to the Companys businesses, and will closely control and check operations of each department in the Company to ensure they are in conformance with applicable laws and regulations. It will inform of changes in relevant regulations to all involved departments.

The Company is highly dependent on staff


The Company relies on experienced, knowledgeable and skilled employees in its business operations. At present, in a highly competitive business, with a limited number of experienced and skilled staff, there is intense competition to recruit appropriate qualified staff. To the extent that the Company is unable to retain these staff, the Companys business continuity may be affected to the detriment of its financial condition and result of operations. To counter this risk, the Company has provided its staff with good employee welfare, and long put emphasis on providing training courses for employees with the aim of enhancing employee skills. In addition, the Company has allocated warrants for staff in order to attract a very qualified workforce to continue working for the Company over the long term. In the Year 2010, the Company faced no problem regarding significant turnover of its staff.

under The Companys operations are under the control of the major shareholder
As at August 27, 2010, Kim Eng Holdings Limited, the Companys major shareholder, held a 55.55% equity stake in the Companys paid-up capital. Thus, Kim Eng Holdings Limited remains able to control shareholders resolutions in relation to key matters that are required by laws or articles of association of the Company to be passed by a majority vote of shareholders attending the meetings and entitled to vote, except for matters that are required by laws or articles of association of the Company to be passed by a three-fourths vote of shareholders. Therefore, other shareholders may not obtain sufficient votes to balance those of Kim Eng Holdings Limited. Nevertheless, the Company has appointed three independent directors that account for 30% of the Companys Board of Directors. They are responsible for monitoring and providing advice on the Companys operation to ensure it has operated transparently and accurately. Moreover, as a subsidiary of Kim Eng Holdings that has long been well known for its securities business with subsidiaries in Asia, Europe and the United States, KEST has been widely accepted by retail and institutional trading clients for its expertise and experience in the securities business.

TAS 16 (Revised 2009), the revised standard requires the entity to include in cost of PPE, an initial estimate of the costs of dismantling and removing the item and restoring the site on which it is located, when the entity has obligation to do. An entity requires that an item of property, plant and equipment with a cost that is significant in relation to the total cost of the item shall be depreciated separately. The revised standard also requires an entity to review useful life, residual value and depreciation method at least at each financial year-end. The Group will apply this standard from 1 January 2011. TAS 19 deals with accounting for employee benefit. The standard classifies employee benefit into 4 categories: a) short-term employee benefits b) post-employment benefits (including defined contribution plan and defined benefit plan) c) other long-term employee benefits and d) termination benefits. The standard requires the entity to measure the defined employee benefit plan and other long-term benefits by using the Projected Unit Credit method (PUC).

Actuarial gain or loss for other long-term employee benefit shall recognise in profit and loss. The Group will apply this standard from 1 January 2011.

2.7

Investments in debt and equity securities Investments other than investments in subsidiary are classified into the following four categories: 1. Trading investments, 2. Held to maturity investments, 3. Available for sale investments and 4. General investments. The classification is dependent on the purpose for which the investments were acquired. Management determines the appropriate classification of its investments at the time of the purchase and re-evaluates such designation on a regular basis. 1. Investments that are acquired principally for the purpose of generating a profit from short-term fluctuations in price are classified as trading investments for the purpose of these financial statements short term is defined as a year. Investments with fixed maturity that the management has the intent and ability to hold to maturity are classified as held to maturity. Investments intended to be held for an indefinite period of time, which may be sold in response to liquidity needs or changes in interest rates, are classified as available for sale. Investments in non-marketable equity securities are classified as general investments.

2. 3. 4.

Purchases and sales of investments are recognised on the trade date, which is the date that the Group commits to purchase or sell the investments. Cost of investment includes transaction costs. Investments in available for sale and trading securities are presented at fair value less allowance for impairment, if any, in the balance sheet. Unrealised gains or losses resulting from changes in fair values of investment in available for sale securities and trading securities are included in the shareholders equity and in the statement of income, respectively. Fair value are calculated on the following basis: For marketable debt securities, fair values are calculated by referencing to the last bid prices on the last business day of the year. The rates are announced by the Thai Bond Market Association (Thai BMA). Fair values of other debt securities are calculated by referencing to the risk-free yield curve, adjusted by the appropriate risk premium. For marketable equity securities, fair values are calculated by referencing to last bid prices quoted on the Stock Exchange of Thailand on the last business day of the year.

Held to maturity debt securities are initially recognised at purchase price plus transaction costs and subsequently accounted for at amortised cost using effective interest method, less allowance for impairment, if any. General investment is stated at cost, less allowance for impairment, if any. An impairment review is carried out by the Group when there is a factor indicating that such investment might be impaired. If the carrying amount of the investment is higher than its recoverable amount, impairment loss is charged to the statement of income. On disposal of an investment, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount is charged or credited to the statement of income. When a particular investment in securities is partly disposed, the carrying amount of the disposed portion is determined on the weighted average basis.

Derivative business receivables include other receivables which are derivative business receivable who subjected of legal proceeding, are undergoing restructuring or are being settled in installments. Allowance for doubtful accounts is determined based on the announcement of the Office of the Securities and Exchange Commissions Notification dated 15 February 2001, regarding the accounting for sub-standard loans. The announcement requires the Company categorise its loan portfolio into 3 categories subject to different minimum levels of provisioning. The announcement also imposes policies regarding collateral valuation for the purpose of setting allowance for doubtful accounts. Moreover, management also considers the financial position of each debtor which is based on managements experience and opinion. Bad debts written off or bad debts recovered are recorded as a decrease or an increase in the allowance for doubtful accounts.

2.11 Equipment and depreciation Equipment is initially recorded at cost and is subsequently shown at cost less accumulated depreciation as at the balance sheet date. Depreciation is calculated on the straight line method to write off the cost of each asset to its residual value over the estimated useful lives. Building improvement Furniture fixtures & equipment Motor vehicles 5 years 3 and 5 years 5 years

Where the carrying amount of an asset is greater than its estimated recoverable amount, it is written down immediately to its recoverable amount and the difference will be recorded as impairment loss in the statement of income. Repairs and maintenance are charged to the income statement during the financial period in which they are incurred. The cost of major renovations is included in the carrying amount of the asset when it is probable that future economic benefits in excess of the originally assessed standard of performance of the existing asset will flow to the Group. The Group depreciated the asset over the remaining useful life of the related asset. Gains and losses on disposals are determined by comparing proceeds with carrying amount and are included in operating profit.

2.12 Intangible assets Expenditure on acquired intangible assets is capitalised and amortised using the straight-line method over their useful lives, generally over 5 years, except for TFEX member fee and mutual fund license, which are not amortised. Such intangible assets are not revalued. The carrying amount of each intangible asset is reviewed annually and adjusted for impairment where it is considered necessary.

2.13 Foreclosed properties Foreclosed properties consist of immovable properties, which are stated at the lower of cost and recoverable amount. The excess of the carrying amount over recoverable amount is recognised as an impairment loss in statement of income. Gains or losses on disposals of such properties are recognised in the statement of income at the date of disposal.

2.14 Impairment of assets Assets that have an indefinite useful life are not subject to amortisation and are tested annually for impairment. Assets that are subject to amortisation are reviewed for impairment. Assets that are subject to amortisation are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. An impairment loss is recognised for the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds its recoverable amount which is the higher of an assets fair value less costs to sell and value in use. For the purposes of assessing impairment, assets are grouped at the lowest levels for which there are separately identifiable cash flows. Non-financial assets other than goodwill that suffered an impairment are reviewed for possible reversal of the impairment at each reporting date. Back to Content 81

2.23 Earnings (loss) per share Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) for the year by weighted-average number of paid-up ordinary shares in issue during the year. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is calculated by dividing net income (loss) for the year by sum of weighted average number of ordinary share to be issued for conversion of all dilutive potential ordinary shares into ordinary shares. The calculation assumes that conversion took place either at the beginning of the year or on the date the potential ordinary shares were issued.

2.25 Financing leases - where the Company is the lessee Leases of vehicles which substantially transfer all the risks and rewards of ownership are classified as finance leases. Finance leases are capitalised at the inception of the lease at the lower of the fair value of the leased property and the present value of the minimum lease payments. Each lease payment is allocated to the principal and to the finance charges so as to achieve a constant rate on the finance balance outstanding. The outstanding rental obligations, net of finance charges, are included in other long-term payables. The interest element of the finance cost is charged to the statement of income over the lease period so as to achieve a constant periodic rate of interest on the remaining balance of the liability for each period.

Critical accounting estimates, assumptions and judgements

Estimates, assumptions and judgements are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Equipment and intangible assets Management determines the estimated useful lives and residual values for the Groups equipment and intangible assets. Management will revise the depreciation charge where useful lives and residual values are different to previously estimated, or its will write off or write down technically obsolete or assets that have been abandoned or sold. Employee benefits The Group has commitment on post-retirement benefits to employee on reaching retirement age. The present value of employee benefit liabilities recognised in balance sheet is determined on the present value of estimated future cash outflows for staff that is nearly reach retirement age. The assumptions used in determining the net year cost for employee benefits includes the salary and years of services of respective employees which are payable in the future year and discount rate(deposit rate). Any changes in these assumptions will impact the net year cost recorded for employee benefits. On a quarterly basis, the Group revises the appropriate discount rate, which represents the deposit rate that should be used to determine the present value of future cash flows to settle the nearly reach retired employee benefits.

Capital risk management

The Groups objectives when managing capital are to safeguard the Groups ability to continue as a going concern in order to provide returns for shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders and to maintain an optimal capital structure to reduce the cost of capital. In order to maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Group may adjust the amount of dividends paid to shareholders, return capital to shareholders, issue new shares or sell assets to reduce debt obligations.

When a financial instrument is traded in an active market such as trading and available-for-sale investments, publicly traded derivatives, and its quoted market price provides the best evidence of fair value. The quoted market price for an asset held or liability to be issued is usually the current bid price and, for an asset to be acquired or liability held, it is the current offer or asking price. The carrying amount of financial instruments, which are cash and cash equivalent, long-term deposits at financial institution, securities and derivative business receivables less any estimated credit adjustments, payables to clearing house, securities and derivative business payables, debentures and other borrowings are considered to approximate their fair value. Since financial instruments are predominantly subject to market interest rate.
