TO THE MEMBERS

PROSPECTS AND OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE

Your Directors have pleasure in presenting the 17th Annual Report on the business and operations of the Company together with audited accounts for the year ended 31 March 2017.

Economic outlook Output: Industrial production slipped in February 2017 to a 4-month low, contracting 1.2% year-on-year (Y-o-Y), mainly on account of a decline in the manufacturing sector and lower off take of both capital and consumer goods. For the Apr-16 to Feb-17 period, IIP grew @ 0.4% vs 2.6% in the same period of the previous year. The decline in IIP in February 2017 was mainly on account of a 2% contraction in the manufacturing sector, which constitutes over 75% of the index. Overall, 15 out of 22 industry groups in the manufacturing sector have witnessed negative growth in February 2017.

Balance carried over to Balance Sheet

The Central Statistical Organisation (CSO) has estimated real and nominal gross domestic product (GDP) growth at 11.5% and 7.1% respectively in FY17. The Economic Survey has projected economic growth in the range of 6.5 to 6.75% in FY17 and 6.75 to 7.50% in FY18, while cautioning against fluctuations in oil prices and eruption of trade tensions. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), in its latest policy statement dated April 6, 2017, has stated that “Considering the baseline assumptions, the fast pace of remonetisation, survey indicators and updated model forecasts, RBI staff’s baseline scenario projects that real Gross Value Added (GVA) growth will improve from 6.6 per cent in Q3:2016-17 and 6.5 per cent in Q4: 2016-17 to 7.0 per cent in Q1:201718 and 7.4-7.6 per cent in the remaining three quarters of 2017-18, with risks evenly balanced around this baseline path. Looking beyond 2017-18 and assuming a normal monsoon, a congenial global environment, no policy-induced structural change and no supply shocks, structural model estimates yield real GVA growth of 8.1 per cent in 2018-19.”

OPERATIONS During the year under review, the Company’s total income amounted to Rs. 553.20 crore as against Rs. 401.60 crore in the previous year, an increase of 37.75%. The operations have resulted in a net profit after tax of Rs. 215.90 crore as against Rs. 133.34 crore in the previous year. The Company has emerged as a strong player in the financial services space offering complete financial services along with the core broking product. The Company continued strengthening its distribution network and by the end of the year had 273 branches across 190 cities in the

India’s growth will find support in strong private consumption stemming from double-digit hikes in government wages and pensions. Notable progress

in restructuring bank balance sheets and reducing excessive leverage in large corporations have set the stage for an expected revival in investments, which could drive growth higher in the year 2017.

Capital markets A synopsis and the road ahead: Benchmark indices ended FY17 with double-digit returns of 17 to 19%, after touching new lifetime highs in March 2017. A pick up in FII inflows, the ruling party at the centre winning the UP elections and the global markets’ recovery contributed to the equity markets’ stellar performance in FY17. The Midcap and Small cap indices gained in the range of 33-37%. The rally was also augmented by the bold decisions made by the government - GST, FDI and demonetisation, while digesting the storm of major negative events, including BREXIT, the cash crunch post demonetisation and the Indian currency hitting new lows during the financial year. It is now evident that Indian equity investors are evolving and becoming increasingly mature. The fiscal year ended on a great note for the IPOs launched in FY17. A staggering 25 mainboard IPOs were launched in FY17 and collected Rs.28,200 crore, almost double the amount collected in FY16.

Inflation: India’s retail inflation quickened to a five-month high of 3.85% in March 2017 on the back of higher fuel prices, erasing any hope of a rate cut by the central bank in the near future. Retail fuel inflation accelerated to 5.56% in March 2017 from 3.9% in the previous month, even as food prices rose 1.93%, slower than the 2.01% increase in the previous month. The spurt in CPI and WPI inflation fuels concerns of a pent-up demand after demonetisation, which may prompt RBI to keep policy interest rates unchanged for a few months. At the same time concerns on the growth front could dissuade the central bank from raising policy rates anytime soon. Fiscal and external situation: India’s trade deficit widened in February 2017 to USD 8.9bn from USD 6.5bn in February 2016 on the back of a surge in imports which expanded 21.8% over the same month of the previous year. Exports also surged, but at a slower pace of 17.5%. The restrictive policies adopted by the USA and Britain’s surprise vote last year to leave the European Union (BREXIT) have clouded the global trade outlook.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) pumped Rs.55,700 crore into domestic equities in FY17 as against outflow of Rs. 14,200 crore in FY16. Domestic Institutional Investors (DIIs) were just short of the figure for FII investments, with equity investments of Rs 51,400 crore as against Rs. 70,100 crore in FY16. However, FIIs ended the second consecutive financial year as net sellers in the debt segment, with a net outflow of Rs 7,300 crore in FY17.

India’s foreign exchange reserves surged by USD 2.67bn to touch an all-time high of USD 366.78bn in the week ended March 17, 2017.

DIIs remain concerned about the lack of earnings growth in the corporate sector. Based on a consensus of expectations, FY17 seems likely to be the fourth successive year of single-digit earnings growth.

According to data released by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), foreign direct investment or FDI in India grew 18 per cent, from USD 39.32bn in 2015 to USD 46bn in 2016. India received maximum FDI inflows from Singapore, Mauritius, the UK, the USA, the Netherlands and Japan. The Government of India has taken several initiatives to further relax foreign investment norms, which should result in higher FDI inflows in FY2017-18.

Post demonetisation, a recovery in consumption has been heartening. Two of the strongest signals of rural and urban consumption - two-wheeler and passenger car sales - seem to have bounced back satisfactorily in February 2017 and March 2017. Some of the aggregate indicators - the Nikkei India Manufacturing PMI, for instance - have also reflected a sharp revival over the last couple of months.

review are as follows:

While investors hope that this momentum will be carried into FY18, the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) from July 1, 2017 among other factors, will be key in driving the markets. The monsoon and its impact on inflation is another key event to look out for.

Name of Director Mr.Abhay Aima Dr. (Mrs.) Amla Samanta Mr. Aseem Dhru Mr. Bharat Shah Mr. Dhiraj Relli Mr. Jagdish Capoor Mr. S.S. Thakur Mr. Santosh Haldankar

The government seems increasingly serious about tackling bank asset quality problems, focussing on GST implementation from 1 July 2017 and is also keen to sharply expand Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT) and digital banking. Post the outcome of recent state elections, the street is expecting the political situation to gradually become more favourable for implementation of faster and bolder reforms. If this becomes a reality, we could see even bigger inflows from abroad, given the demographic advantage enjoyed by India.

COMPOSITION AND SIZE OF THE BOARD

Low average capacity utilisation (70-75%) could continue to curb private capital expenditure in the foreseeable future, though recovery in exports will be a silver lining.

The composition of the Board of Directors of the Company (“the Board”) is governed by the Companies Act, 2013 & the SEBI (Stock-brokers and Sub-brokers) Regulations, 1992.

At the global level, events such as the outcome of the French elections, policies adopted by the USA and the trajectory of oil prices will impact sentiments in FY18. Flows to the equity markets via foreign investors and domestic mutual funds are crucial for the market momentum to continue and, of course, will be influenced by these events.

Reason for not spending the amount The Company has committed and disbursed 1.71% of the average net profit as a part of its CSR implementing programme in the FY 2016-17 as against a spend of 1.22% for the FY 2015-16. Some projects undertaken by the Company during the reporting period are long term and will require a 12-16 months implementation time frame for a sustainable and meaningful impact. The Company believes in active participation in the CSR implementation so as to have a long term, meaningful and positive social impact over a period of years. Thus, though the Company has endeavoured to increase its CSR spend over the last financial year with increased participation and meaningful discussions with implementing agencies, it could not fully utilise the CSR spend on account of unavailability of effective CSR Projects in accordance with the company’s implementation strategy for a meaningful impact. The Company will further augment its efforts to meet the targeted CSR spends in the coming years.

ANNEXURE A TO THE INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT (Referred to in paragraph 1(f) under ‘Report on Other Legal and Regulatory Requirements’ section of our report of even date) Report on the Internal Financial Controls under Clause (i) of Sub-section 3 of Section 143 of the Act We have audited the internal financial controls over financial reporting of HDFC Securities Limited (“the Company”) as of March 31, 2017 in conjunction with our audit of the financial statements of the Company for the year ended on that date. Management’s Responsibility for Internal Financial Controls The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining internal financial controls based on the internal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. These responsibilities include the design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls that were operating effectively for ensuring the orderly and efficient conduct of its business, including adherence to company’s policies, the safeguarding of its assets, the prevention and detection of frauds and errors, the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, and the timely preparation of reliable financial information, as required under the Companies Act, 2013. Auditors’ Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal financial controls over financial reporting based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Guidance Note on Audit of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting (the “Guidance Note”) issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and the Standards on Auditing prescribed under Section 143(10) of the Companies Act, 2013, to the extent applicable to an audit of internal financial controls. Those Standards and the Guidance Note require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether adequate internal financial controls over financial reporting was established and maintained and if such controls operated effectively in all material respects. Our audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the adequacy of the internal financial controls system over financial reporting and their operating effectiveness. Our audit of internal financial controls over financial reporting included obtaining an understanding of internal financial controls over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the Company’s internal financial controls system over financial reporting. Meaning of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting A company’s internal financial control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal financial control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorisations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorised acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements. Inherent Limitations of Internal Financial Controls Over Financial Reporting Because of the inherent limitations of internal financial controls over financial reporting, including the possibility of collusion or improper management override of controls, material misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected. Also, projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controls over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that

24

the internal financial control over financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Opinion In our opinion, to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the Company has, in all material respects, an adequate internal financial controls system over financial reporting and such internal financial controls over financial reporting were operating effectively as at March 31, 2017, based on the internal control over financial reporting criteria established by the Company considering the essential components of internal control stated in the Guidance Note.

Intangible assets are amortised on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives. A rebuttable presumption that the useful life of an intangible asset will not exceed ten years from the date when the asset is available for use is considered by the management. The amortisation period and the amortisation method are reviewed at least at each reporting date. If the expected useful life of the asset is significantly different from previous estimates, the amortisation period is changed accordingly. Gains or losses arising from the retirement or disposal of an intangible asset are determined as the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and recognised as income or expense in the Statement of Profit and Loss in the year of disposal.

Impairment Assessment is done at each Balance Sheet date as to whether there is any indication that an asset (tangible and intangible) may be impaired. For the purpose of assessing impairment, the smallest identifiable group of assets that generates cash inflows from continuing use that are largely independent of the cash inflows from other assets or groups of assets, is considered as a cash generating unit. If any such indication exists, an estimate of the recoverable amount of the asset/cash generating unit is made. Assets whose carrying value exceeds their recoverable amount are written down to the recoverable amount. Recoverable amount is higher of an asset’s or cash generating unit’s net selling price and its value in use. Value in use is the present value of estimated future cash flows expected to arise from the continuing use of an asset and from its disposal at the end of its useful life. Assessment is also done at each Balance Sheet date as to whether there is any indication that an impairment loss recognised for an asset in prior accounting periods may no longer exist or may have decreased.

Intangible assets Intangible assets are stated at acquisition cost, net of accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Cost of an intangible asset includes purchase price, non-refundable taxes and duties and any other directly attributable expenditure on making the asset ready for its intended use and net of any trade discounts and rebates. Subsequent expenditure on an intangible asset is charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss as an expense unless it is probable that such expenditure will enable the intangible asset increase the future benefits from the existing asset beyond its previously assessed standard of performance and such expenditure can be measured and attributed to the intangible asset reliably, in which case, such expenditure is capitalised. 33

2.7. Investments

Investments that are readily realisable and are intended to be held for not more than one year from the date, on which such investments are made, are classified as current investments. All other investments are classified as long term investments. Current investments are carried at cost or fair value, whichever is lower. Long-term investments are carried at cost. However, provision for diminution is made to recognise a decline, other than temporary, in the value of the investments, such reduction being determined and made for each investment individually.

2.8.

Employee benefits



i) Short term



Short term employee benefits include salaries and performance incentives. A liability is recognised for the amount expected to be paid under short-term cash bonus or profit sharing plans if the Company has a present legal or informal obligation to pay this amount as a result of past service provided by the employee, and the obligation can be estimated reliably. These costs are recognised as an expense in the Statement of Profit and Loss at the undiscounted amount expected to be paid over the period of services rendered by the employees to the Company.



ii) Long term



The Company offers its employees long term benefits by way of defined-contribution and defined-benefit plans, of which some have assets in special funds or securities. The plans are financed by the Company and in the case of some defined contribution plans by the Company along with its employees.



Defined-contribution plans



These are plans in which the Company pays pre-defined amounts to separate funds and does not have any legal or informal obligation to pay additional sums. These comprise of contributions to the National pension scheme, employees’ provident fund, family pension fund and superannuation fund. The Company’s payments to the defined-contribution plans are reported as expenses during the period in which the employees perform the services that the payment covers.



Defined-benefit plans



Expenses for defined-benefit gratuity plan are calculated as at the balance sheet date by an independent actuary in a manner that distributes expenses over the employee’s working life. These commitments are valued at the present value of the expected future payments, with consideration for calculated future salary increases, using a discount

rate corresponding to the interest rate estimated by the actuary having regard to the interest rate on government bonds with a remaining term that is almost equivalent to the average balance working period of employees. The fair values of the plan assets are deducted in determining the net liability. When the fair value of plan assets exceeds the commitments computed as aforesaid, the recognised asset is limited to the net total of any cumulative past service costs and the present value of any economic benefits available in the form of reductions in future contributions to the plan.

Actuarial losses or gains are recognised in the Statement of Profit and Loss in the year in which they arise.



iii) Other employee benefits



Compensated absences which accrue to employees and which can be carried to future periods but are expected to be availed in twelve months immediately following the year in which the employee has rendered service are reported as expenses during the year in which the employees perform the services that the benefit covers and the liabilities are reported at the undiscounted amount of the benefits.



Where there are restrictions on availment of such accrued benefit or where the availment is otherwise not expected to wholly occur in the next twelve months, the liability on account of the benefit is actuarially determined using the projected unit credit method.



iv) Share-based payment transactions



Equity settled stock options granted under the Company’s Employee Stock Option Schemes are accounted for as per the accounting treatment prescribed by the Guidance Note on Employee Share-based Payments issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. The intrinsic value of the option being excess of fair value of the underlying share immediately prior to date of grant over its exercise price is recognised as deferred employee compensation with a credit to employee stock option outstanding account. The deferred employee compensation is charged to Statement of Profit and Loss on straight line basis over the vesting period of the option. The options that lapse are reversed by a credit to employee compensation expense, equal to the amortised portion of value of lapsed portion and credit to deferred employee compensation expense equal to the unamortised portion.

2.9. Leases

34

Leases in terms of which the Company assumes substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership are classified as finance leases. Upon initial recognition, the

leased asset is measured at an amount equal to the lower of its fair value and the present value of the minimum lease payments. Subsequent to initial recognition, the asset is accounted for in accordance with the accounting policy applicable to that asset.

benefits will be required to settle the obligation and there is a reliable estimate of the amount of the obligation. Provisions are measured at the best estimate of the expenditure required to settle the present obligation at the Balance sheet date and are not discounted to its present value.

Other leases are operating leases and the leased assets are not recognised in the Company’s Balance Sheet. Lease expenses on such operating leases are recognised in the Statement of Profit and Loss on a straight line basis over the lease term. Initial direct costs are recognised as an expense in the Statement of Profit and Loss in the period in which they are incurred.

Contingent Liabilities: Contingent liabilities are disclosed when there is a possible obligation arising from past events, the existence of which will be confirmed only by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events not wholly within the control of the Company or a present obligation that arises from past events where it is either not probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle or a reliable estimate of the amount cannot be made, is termed as a contingent liability.

2.10. Current and deferred tax Tax expense for the period, comprising current tax and deferred tax, are included in the determination of the net profit or loss for the period.

2.12. Cash and cash equivalents

Current tax is measured at the amount of tax payable on the taxable income for the year determined in accordance with the provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

In the Cash Flow Statement, cash and cash equivalents include cash in hand, demand deposits and short term with banks with original maturities of three months or less and other short-term highly liquid investments that are readily convertible into known amounts of cash and which are subject to insignificant risk of changes in value.

Deferred tax is recognised for all the timing differences, being the differences between the taxable income and the accounting income that originate in one period and are capable of reversal in one or more subsequent periods. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using the tax rates and tax laws that have been enacted or substantively enacted by the Balance Sheet date. Deferred tax assets are recognised and carried forward only to the extent that there is a reasonable certainty that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which such deferred tax assets can be realised. At each Balance Sheet date, the Company reassesses unrecognised deferred tax assets, if any.

2.13. Earnings per share Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the net profit or loss for the year attributable to equity shareholders by the weighted average number of equity shares outstanding during the period. Earnings considered in ascertaining the Company’s earnings per share is the net profit for the year. The weighted average number of equity shares outstanding during the period and for all periods presented is adjusted for events, such as bonus shares (other than the conversion of potential equity shares) that have changed the number of equity shares outstanding, without a corresponding change in resources.

Current tax assets and current tax liabilities are offset when there is a legally enforceable right to set off the recognised amounts and there is an intention to settle the asset and the liability on a net basis. Deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities are offset when there is a legally enforceable right to set off assets against liabilities representing current tax and where the deferred tax assets and the deferred tax liabilities relate to taxes on income levied by the same governing taxation laws.

For the purpose of calculating diluted earnings per share, the net profit or loss for the period attributable to equity shareholders and the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period is adjusted for the effects of all dilutive potential equity shares. Potential equity shares are deemed dilutive only if their conversion into equity shares would decrease the net per share from continuing ordinary operations. Potential equity shares are deemed to be converted as at the beginning of the period, unless they have been issued at a later date. The dilutive potential equity shares are adjusted for the proceeds receivable had the shares been actually issued at fair value (i.e. average market value of the outstanding shares).

Current and deferred taxes relating to items directly recognised in equity are recognised in equity and not in the Statement of Profit and Loss. 2.11. Provisions and contingent liabilities Provisions: Provisions are recognised when there is a present obligation as a result of a past event and it is probable that an outflow of resources embodying economic 35
