AFRICAN DAWN ANNUAL REPORT 2017 24 Independent Auditor’s Report To the shareholders of African Dawn Capital Limited Independent Auditor’s Report To the shareholders of African Dawn Capital Limited Report on the financial statements Opinion We have audited the consolidated and separate financial statements of African Dawn Capital Limited (the group) set out on pages 31 to 88 , which comprise the statements of financial position as at 28 February 2017, and the statements of profit or loss and other comprehensive income, the statements of changes in equity and the statements of cash flows for the year then ended, and notes to the financial statements, including a summary of significant accounting policies. In our opinion, the consolidated and separate financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated and separate financial position of the group as at 28 February 2017, and its consolidated and separate financial performance and consolidated and separate cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and the requirements of the Companies Act of South Africa. Basis for opinion We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (ISAs). Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements section of our report. We are independent of the group in accordance with the Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors Code of Professional Conduct for Registered Auditors (IRBA Code) and other independence requirements applicable to performing audits of financial statements in South Africa. We have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with the IRBA Code and in accordance with other ethical requirements applicable to performing audits in South Africa. The IRBA Code is consistent with the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (Parts A and B). We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. Material uncertainty related to going concern We draw attention to the directors report in the financial statements, which indicates that the Company and the Group incurred a net loss of R6,910m and R12,188m respectively during the year ended 28 February 2017. As stated in Note 1.18, these events or conditions, along with other matters indicate that a material uncertainty exists that may cast significant doubt on the Company’s and Group’s ability to continue as a going concern. Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter. Key audit matters Key audit matters are those matters that, in our professional judgement, were of most significance in our audit of the consolidated and separate financial statements of the current period. These matters were addressed in the context of our audit of the consolidated and separate financial statements as a whole, and in forming our opinion thereon, and we do not provide a separate opinion on these matters. In addition to the matters described in the Material Uncertainty related to Going Concern section, we have determined the matters below to be key audit matters to be communicated in our report. The following key audit matters relate to the consolidated financial statements Key audit matter Impairment of non-financial assets Goodwill and other intangible an assets arise as a result of acquisitions by the Group. The directors conducted their annual impairment test to assess the recoverability of the goodwill and consider whether there are indicators of impairment with respect to other intangible assets. In order to establish whether an impairment exists, fair value less costs to sell or the value in use is determined and compared to the net book value of the goodwill and other intangible assets. As detailed in note 4 this determination of an impairment is highly subjective as significant judgement is required by the directors in determining the fair value less costs to sell or the value in use as appropriate. The value in use is based on the cash flow forecast model for each cash-generating unit and requires the estimation of model assumptions, most importantly the discount rate and growth rate. Accordingly, due to the high estimation uncertainty, the impairment assessment of these assets is considered to be a key audit matter.
