Silver Bird Group Berhad
Flour price had been volatile for most of the year and
remained at an all time high in the previous year and this
trend has affected the companys input costs. Fortunately
flour price has lowered slightly and with the Groups
continued efforts at cost cutting measures it has managed
to remain competitive in the market. For the financial year
under review the Group registered a lower revenue of
RM589 million compared to RM639 million achieved in
the previous year. Despite this the Group managed to
register a profit after taxation and minority interest of
RM1.44 million compared to the previous years loss of
RM21 million. The Group was able to deliver a profitable
result after three consecutive financial year losses and this
marked a significant turning point for the Group.
O n behalf of the Board of Directors, I am
pleased to present to you the 2009 Annual
Report and the Audited Financial Statements
of Silver Bird Group Berhad for the
financial year ended 31 O ctober 2009.
C h a irm a n ' s
DATO DR GAN KHUAN POH
Chairman
Financial Highlights
The financial year 2009 has been a very
challenging year following the global
financial crisis and economic downturn.
The Malaysian economic contracted by 6.2% in the
first quarter of year 2009 while the manufacturing
sector contracted 14.8% in the first eights months of
2009 on account of sharp deterioration in exports and
domestic oriented industries. However, there are signs
that the declining trend is bottoming out. This positive
development is further reinforced by the Governments
stimulus package spending as well as better consumer
sentiment and business confidence.
C h a irm a n ' s S t a t e m e n t

Silver Bird Group Berhad
A favourable trend of an increasing turnover is expected
to follow through into the next financial year. With this
trend there should be sales growth in daily fresh bakery
products. Coupled with the continuing cost reduction
measures these developments augur well for prospects
in the coming year.
DIVIDEND
The Board of Directors is not recommending any
dividend for the financial year under review.
OUTLOOK AND PROSPECTS
In the light of the prospects arising from the
consolidation of the bakery market, the Group will
continue to focus on its core business and will strive to
sustain and build on its current performance. In addition
with the removal of white bread from the price control
list by the Government and the continuous cost
reduction measures undertaken, the Group hopes that
this will translate into better results in the coming
financial year. The Group is also currently expanding
aggressively into institutional sales and this strategy
compliments well with the capacity expansion plan of
the Group.
The Board of Directors is cautiously optimistic that with
the commitment to improve efficiencies in operations,
efforts at cost cutting measures and marketing and
promotion the aspiration to be one of the nations
leading players in the consumer food market can be
achieved.
APPRECIATION
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like
to extend my sincerest appreciation to our valued
customers for their continuous support and our
business partners, bankers, regulatory authorities for
their trust, confidence and cooperation given to us.
To my fellow directors, management and staff, I would
like to express my gratitude and appreciation for their
hard work, dedication and commitment throughout the
year.
Last but not least, my heart-felt thanks to all our
valued shareholders for your patience, confidence and
continued support in Silver Bird Group Berhad.
DATO DR GAN KHUAN POH
Chairman

Silver Bird Group Berhad
In spite of the challenging conditions
for financial year ended 31 October
2009, the Group continued to show
improved results.
FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE
Revenue dropped from RM638 million last year to RM589
million in the current financial year. This was mainly due to
lower revenue from our MultiCom Division as a result of
slowdown in the prepaid telecommunication industry.
However, the Group managed to register a profit after
taxation of RM1.44 million compared with a loss after
taxation of RM21 million in the previous year. This set of
commendable results marks the Groups turnaround from
losses amidst the backdrop of an economic recession and
global credit crunch. The significant improvement was
attributed to a combination of sales growth and lower costs
in our core business of Consumer Food Division.
We are continuously performing research and development
for new products and exploring other related business
segments. Price of flour has lowered slightly compared to
2008 and coupled with the Governments subsidy, the
Company was able to maintain its margin.

The MultiCom Division on the other hand registered a
drop in revenue but continued to make profit contributions
to the Group.
SINGAPORES OPERATION
In this segment, we had managed to turnaround
Singapores operation and will remain committed to this
market and continue to seek innovative ways to expand
our reach.
We also managed to secure the supply contract to
manufacture house brand confectionery products for
another leading retail chain in Singapore at the end of
2009 which results will only be reflected in the financial
year 2010.
FUTURE PROSPECTS
The Malaysian economy is expected to return to positive
growth next year and this should translate to stronger
consumer spending. With the downward trend of major
material costs and the various cost reduction initiatives
undertaken by the Group, we are confident these
measures will translate into more positive results for the
forthcoming quarters.
On 31 December 2009, the Government had announced
the withdrawal of subsidy on white bread and the removal
of price control on the product. This will liberalise the
industry with the flexibility for innovation and adjustments.
We will continue to structure our approach to pursue
growth, maintaining the Groups competitiveness and
ensuring the long term growth and profitability by
expanding into similar and/or complementary businesses
whenever opportunities arise. We are cautious over the
uncertainties of fluctuation in the raw material prices
which may impact the Companys performance for the
next financial year.
The Group is expanding aggressively into institutional
sales and coupled with favourable sales growth, the
Group had planned for capacity expansion. Barring any
unforseen circumstances, the Board is confident of
achieving a much better set of results in 2010.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to place
on record our sincere gratitude and appreciation to the
management team and all employees for their hard work
and commitment throughout the challenging financial
year.
I would also like to express my deepest appreciation to
all our valuable customers, business partners, bankers,
shareholders and regulatory authorities for their continued
support and trust in the Group.

together group of extensively experienced Directors who are from diverse backgrounds and have a wide range of
skills and experiences in areas relevant to managing and directing the Groups operations.
The Executive Directors are primarily responsible for the implementation of policies and decisions of the Board,
overseeing the Groups operations and developing the Groups business strategies.
The Board did not appoint a Senior Independent Non-Executive Director to whom concerns maybe conveyed as
the Chairman of the Board encourages the active participation of each and every Board member in the decision
making process.
(b) Duties and Responsibilities
The main focus of the Board is on the overall strategic leadership, identification and management of principal risks
and development and control of the Group. The Board has delegated specific responsibilities to Board Committees,
all of which discharge the duties and responsibilities within their respective Terms of Reference.
The roles of the Chairman and Group Managing Director are clearly distinct to ensure that there is a balance of
power and authority. The Chairman is primarily responsible for the effective and efficient conduct and working of

OPTIONS GRANTED OVER UNISSUED SHARES
During the financial year, no options were granted by the Company to any person to take up any unissued shares in the
Company.
BAD AND DOUBTFUL DEBTS
Before the financial statements of the Group and of the Company were made out, the directors took reasonable steps
to ascertain that action had been taken in relation to the writing off of bad debts and the making of allowance for
doubtful debts, and satisfied themselves that there are no known bad debts and that adequate allowance had been
made for doubtful debts.
At the date of this report, the directors are not aware of any circumstances that would require the writing off of bad debts,
or the additional allowance for doubtful debts in the financial statements of the Group and of the Company.
CURRENT ASSETS
Before the financial statements of the Group and of the Company were made out, the directors took reasonable steps
to ascertain that any current assets other than debts, which were unlikely to be realised in the ordinary course of
business, including their value as shown in the accounting records of the Group and of the Company, have been written
down to an amount which they might be expected so to realise.
At the date of this report, the directors are not aware of any circumstances which would render the values attributed to
the current assets in the financial statements of the Group and of the Company misleading.
VALUATION METHODS
At the date of this report, the directors are not aware of any circumstances which have arisen which render adherence
to the existing methods of valuation of assets or liabilities of the Group and of the Company misleading or inappropriate.
CONTINGENT AND OTHER LIABILITIES
The contingent liability of the Company is disclosed in Note 41 to the financial statements. At the date of this report,
there does not exist:-
(i) any charge on the assets of the Group and of the Company that has arisen since the end of the financial year which
secures the liabilities of any other person; or
(ii) any contingent liability of the Group and of the Company which has arisen since the end of the financial year.
No contingent or other liability of the Group and of the Company has become enforceable or is likely to become
enforceable within the period of twelve months after the end of the financial year which, in the opinion of the directors,
will or may substantially affect the ability of the Group and of the Company to meet their obligations when they fall due.
CHANGE OF CIRCUMSTANCES
At the date of this report, the directors are not aware of any circumstances not otherwise dealt with in this report or the
financial statements of the Group and of the Company which would render any amount stated in the financial statements
misleading.
ITEMS OF AN UNUSUAL NATURE
The results of the operations of the Group and of the Company during the financial year were not, in the opinion of the
directors, substantially affected by any item, transaction or event of a material and unusual nature.
There has not arisen in the interval between the end of the financial year and the date of this report any item, transaction
or event of a material and unusual nature likely, in the opinion of the directors, to affect substantially the results of the
operations of the Group and of the Company for the financial year.

Report on the Financial Statements
We have audited the financial statements of Silver Bird Group Berhad., which comprise the balance sheets as at 31
October 2009 of the Group and of the Company, and the income statements, statements of changes in equity and
cash flow statements of the Group and of the Company for the financial year then ended, and a summary of significant
accounting policies and other explanatory notes, as set out on pages 39 to 79.
Directors Responsibility for the Financial Statements
The directors of the Company are responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in
accordance with Financial Reporting Standards and the Companies Act 1965 in Malaysia. This responsibility includes
designing, implementing and maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial
statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, selecting and applying appropriate
accounting policies, and making accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances.
Auditors Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit
in accordance with approved standards on auditing in Malaysia. Those standards require that we comply with ethical
requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance 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 our judgement, including the assessment of risks of material
misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, we consider
internal control relevant to the Companys 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 Companys internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting
policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by the directors, as well as evaluating the overall
presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit
opinion.
Opinion
In our opinion, the financial statements have been properly drawn up in accordance with Financial Reporting Standards
and the Companies Act 1965 in Malaysia so as to give a true and fair view of the financial position of the Group and of
the Company as of 31 October 2009 and of their financial performance and cash flows for the financial year then ended.
Report on Other Legal and Regulatory Requirements
In accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act 1965 in Malaysia, we also report the following:-
(a) In our opinion, the accounting and other records and the registers required by the Act to be kept by the Company
and its subsidiaries of which we have acted as auditors have been properly kept in accordance with the provisions
of the Act.
(b) We have considered the financial statements and the auditors report of the subsidiary of which we have not acted
as auditors, which is indicated in Note 6 to the financial statements.
(c) We are satisfied that the financial statements of the subsidiaries that have been consolidated with the Companys
financial statements are in form and content appropriate and proper for the purposes of the preparation of the
financial statements of the Group and we have received satisfactory information and explanations required by us
for those purposes.
(d) The audit reports on the financial statements of the subsidiaries did not contain any qualification or any adverse
comment made under Section 174(3) of the Act.
Other Matters
This report is made solely to the members of the Company, as a body, in accordance with Section 174 of the Companies
Act 1965 in Malaysia and for no other purpose. We do not assume responsibility to any other person for the content of
this report.

1. GENERAL INFORMATION
The Company is a public company limited by shares and is incorporated under the Companies Act 1965 in Malaysia.
The domicile of the Company is Malaysia. The registered office and principal place of business is at Lot 72, Persiaran
Jubli Perak, Seksyen 21, 40300 Shah Alam, Selangor Darul Ehsan.
The financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board of Directors in accordance with a resolution of the
directors dated 11 February 2010.
2. PRINCIPAL ACTIVITIES
The Company is principally engaged in the business of investment holding. The principal activities of the subsidiaries
are set out in Note 6 to the financial statements. There have been no significant changes in the nature of these
activities during the financial year.
3. FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT POLICIES
The Groups financial risk management policy seeks to ensure that adequate financial resources are available for
the development of the Groups business whilst managing its market, credit, liquidity and cash flow risks. The Group
operates within clearly defined guidelines that are established by the Audit Committee and approved by the Board
and the policies in respect of the major areas of treasury activity are as follows:-
(a) Market Risk
(i) Foreign Currency Risk
The Group is exposed to foreign exchange risk on sales and purchases that are denominated in foreign
currencies. It manages its foreign exchange exposure by a policy of matching as far as possible receipts
and payments in each individual currency.
Surpluses of convertible currencies are either retained in foreign currency or sold for Ringgit Malaysia.
The Groups foreign currency transactions and balances are substantially denominated in Singapore Dollar
and United States ( US ) Dollar.
Foreign exchange risk is monitored closely and managed to an acceptable level.
(ii) Interest Rate Risk
The Group obtains financing through bank borrowings. Its policy is to obtain the most favourable interest
rates available.
Surplus funds are placed with licensed financial institutions at the most favourable interest rates.
(iii) Price Risk
The Group does not have any quoted investments and hence is not exposed to price risk.
(b) Credit Risk
The Groups exposure to credit risk, or the risk of counterparties defaulting, arises mainly from receivables. The
maximum exposure to credit risk is represented by the total carrying amount of these financial assets in the
balance sheet reduced by the effects of any netting arrangements with counterparties.
The Group does not have any major concentration of credit risk related to any individual customer or
counterparty.
The Group manages its exposure to credit risk by investing its cash assets safely and profitably, and by the
application of credit approvals, credit limits and monitoring procedures on an ongoing basis.

3. FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT POLICIES(CONTD)
(c) Liquidity and Cash Flow Risk
The Groups exposure to liquidity and cash flow risks arises mainly from general funding and business activities.
It practises prudent liquidity risk management by maintaining sufficient cash balances and the availability of
funding through certain committed credit facilities.
4. BASIS OF PREPARATION
The financial statements of the Group and of the Company are prepared under the historical cost convention and
modified to include other bases of valuation as disclosed in other sections under significant accounting policies,

Amendments to IC Interpretation 9: Scope of IC Interpretation 9 and Revised FRS 3 (2010) 1 July 2010
Annual Improvements to FRSs (2009) 1 January 2010
The above FRSs, IC Interpretations and amendments are not relevant to the Group and the Companys operations
except as follows:
The revised FRS 3 (2010) introduces significant changes to the accounting for business combinations, both at the
acquisition date and post acquisition, and requires greater use of fair values. In addition, all transaction costs, other
than share and debt issue costs, will be expensed as incurred. This revised standard will be applied prospectively
and therefore there will not have any financial impact on the financial statements of the Group for the current financial
year but may impact the accounting for future transactions or arrangements.
The Group considers financial guarantee contracts entered into to be insurance arrangements and accounts for
them under FRS 4. In this respect, the Group treats the guarantee contract as a contingent liability until such a time
as it becomes probable that the Group will be required to make a payment under the guarantee. The adoption of
FRS 4 is expected to have no material impact on the financial statements of the Group.
The possible impacts of FRS 7 (including the subsequent amendments) and the revised FRS 139 (2010) on the
financial statements upon their initial applications are not disclosed by virtue of the exemptions given in these
standards.
FRS 8 replaces FRS 114
2004
Segment Reporting and requires a management approach , under which segment
information is presented on the same basis as that used for internal reporting purposes. The adoption of this
standard only impacts the form and content of disclosures presented in the financial statements of the Group. This
FRS is expected to have no material impact on the financial statements of the Group upon its initial application.
The revised FRS 101 (2009) has introduced terminology changes (including revised titles for the financial statements)
and changes in the format and content of the financial statements. In addition, a statement of financial position is
required at the beginning of the earliest comparative period following a change in accounting policy, the correction
of an error or the reclassification of items in the financial statements. The adoption of this revised standard will only
impact the form and content of the presentation of the Groups financial statements in the next financial year.
The revised FRS 127 (2010) requires accounting for changes in ownership interests by the group in a subsidiary,
while maintaining control, to be recognised as an equity transaction. When the group loses control of a subsidiary,
any interest retained in the former subsidiary will be measured at fair value with the gain or loss recognised in profit
or loss. The revised standard also requires all losses attributable to the minority interest to be absorbed by the
minority interest instead of by the parent. The Group will apply the major changes of the revised FRS 127 (2010)
prospectively and therefore there will not have any financial impact on the financial statements of the Group for the
current financial year but may impact the accounting for future transactions or arrangements.
Amendments to FRS 1 and FRS 127 remove the definition of cost method currently set out in FRS 127, and
instead require an investor to recognise all dividend from subsidiaries, jointly controlled entities or associates as
income in its separate financial statements. In addition, FRS 127 has also been amended to deal with situations
where a parent reorganises its group by establishing a new entity as its new parent. Under this circumstance, the
new parent shall measure the cost of its investment in the original parent at the carrying amount of its share of the
equity items shown in the separate financial statements of the original parent at the reorganisation date. The
amendments will be applied prospectively and therefore there will not have any financial impact on the financial
statements of the Company for the current financial year but may impact the accounting for future transactions or
arrangements.

4. BASIS OF PREPARATION (CONTD)
Amendments to FRS 138 clarify the requirements under the revised FRS 3 (2010) regarding accounting for intangible
assets acquired in a business combination. These amendments are expected to have no material impact on the
financial statements of the Group upon their initial application.
IC Interpretation 9 requires embedded derivatives to be separated from the host contract and accounted for as a
derivative on the basis of the conditions that existed at the later of the date the entity first became a party to the
contract. The possible impacts of IC Interpretation 9 on the financial statements upon its initial application are not
disclosed by virtue of the exemptions given under the revised FRS 139 (2010).
IC Interpretation 10 prohibits the impairment losses recognised in an interim period on goodwill, investments in
equity instruments and financial assets carried at cost to be reversed at a subsequent balance sheet date. This
interpretation is expected to have no material impact on the financial statements of the Group upon its initial
application.
IC Interpretation 16 clarifies the accounting treatment in respect of net investment hedging. This includes the fact
that net investment hedging relates to differences in functional currency not presentation currency, and hedging
instruments may be held anywhere in the group. This interpretation is expected to have no material impact on the
financial statements of the Group upon its initial application.
Amendments to IC Interpretation 9 are a consequential amendment from the revised FRS 3 (2010). These
amendments are expected to have no material impact on the financial statements of the Group upon its initial
application.
Annual Improvements to FRSs (2009) contain amendments to 21 accounting standards that result in accounting
changes for presentation, recognition or measurement purposes and terminology or editorial amendments. These
amendments are expected to have no material impact on the financial statements of the Group upon their initial
application.
5. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
(a) Critical Accounting Estimates And J udgements
Estimates and judgements are continually evaluated by the directors and management and are based on
historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be
reasonable under the circumstances. The estimates and judgements that affect the application of the Groups
accounting policies and disclosures, and have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying
amounts of assets, liabilities, income and expenses are discussed below:-
(i) Depreciation of Property, Plant and Equipment
The estimates for the residual values, useful lives and related depreciation charges for the property, plant
and equipment are based on commercial and production factors which could change significantly as a
result of technical innovations and competitors actions in response to the market conditions.
The Group anticipates that the residual values of its plant and equipment will be insignificant. As a result,
residual values are not being taken into consideration for the computation of the depreciable amount.
Changes in the expected level of usage and technological development could impact the economic useful
lives and the residual values of these assets, therefore future depreciation charges could be revised.
(ii) Income Taxes
There are certain transactions and computations for which the ultimate tax determination is uncertain during
the ordinary course of business. The Group recognises tax liabilities based on estimates of whether
additional taxes will be due. Where the final outcome of these matters is different from the amounts that
were initially recognised, such difference will impact the income tax and deferred tax provisions in the
period in which such determination is made.

5. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD)
(a) Critical Accounting Estimates And J udgements (Contd)
(iii) Impairment of Assets
When the recoverable amount of an asset is determined based on the estimate of the value-in-use of the
cash-generating unit to which the asset is allocated, the management is required to make an estimate of
the expected future cash flows from the cash-generating unit and also to apply a suitable discount rate in
order to determine the present value of those cash flows.
(iv) Allowance for Doubtful Debts of Receivables
The Group makes allowance for doubtful debts based on an assessment of the recoverability of receivables.
Allowances are applied to receivables where events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying
amounts may not be recoverable. Management specifically analyses historical bad debt, customer
concentrations, customer creditworthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment
terms when making a judgement to evaluate the adequacy of the allowance for doubtful debts of
receivables. Where the expectation is different from the original estimate, such difference will impact the
carrying value of receivables.
(v) Allowance for Inventories
Reviews are made periodically by management on damaged, obsolete and slow-moving inventories. These
reviews require judgement and estimates.
Possible changes in these estimates could result in revisions to the valuation of inventories.
(vi) Fair Value Estimates for Certain Financial Assets and Liabilities
The Group carries certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value, which require extensive use of
accounting estimates and judgement. While significant components of fair value measurement were
determined using verifiable objective evidence, the amount of changes in fair value would differ if the Group
uses different valuation methodologies. Any changes in fair value of these assets and liabilities would affect
profit and equity.
(b) Financial Instruments
Financial instruments are recognised in the balance sheet when the Group has become a party to the
contractual provisions of the instruments.
Financial instruments are classified as liabilities or equity in accordance with the substance of the contractual
arrangement. Interest, dividends, gains and losses relating to financial instruments classified as a liability are
reported as an expense or income. Distributions to holders of financial instruments classified as equity are
charged directly to equity.
Financial instruments are offset when the Group has a legally enforceable right to offset and intends to settle
either on a net basis or to realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously.
Financial instruments recognised in the balance sheet are disclosed in the individual policy statement
associated with each item.
(c) Functional and Foreign Currency
(i) Functional and Presentation Currency
The functional currency of the Group and each of the Groups entity is measured using the currency of the
primary economic environment in which the Company or that entity operates.
The consolidated financial statements are presented in Ringgit Malaysia ( RM ) which is the Companys
functional and presentation currency.
Silver Bird Group Berhad
51
5. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD)
(c) Functional and Foreign Currency (contd)
(ii) Transactions and Balances
Transactions in foreign currency are converted into the respective functional currencies on initial recognition,
using the exchange rates approximating those ruling at the transaction dates. Monetary assets and liabilities
at the balance sheet date are translated at the rates ruling as of that date. Non-monetary assets and
liabilities are translated using exchange rates that existed when the values were determined. All exchange
differences are taken to the income statement.
(iii) Foreign Operations
The results and financial position of the Group that have a functional currency different from the presentation
currency are translated into the presentation currency as follows:-
(i) assets and liabilities for each balance sheet presented are translated at the closing rate at the date of
the balance sheet;
(ii) income and expenses for the income statement are translated at the average exchange rates for the
year; and
(iii) all resulting exchange differences are recognised as a separate component of equity, as a foreign
currency translation reserve. On disposal, accumulated translation differences are recognised in the
consolidated income statement as part of the gain or loss on sale.
(d) Basis of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements incorporate the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries
made up to 31 October 2009.
A subsidiary is defined as an enterprise in which the Company has the power, directly or indirectly, to exercise
control over the financial and operating policies so as to obtain benefits from its activities.
The acquisition method is used to consolidate the results of some of the subsidiaries identified in Note 6 to
the financial statements. Under this method, the results of the subsidiaries acquired or disposed of during the
financial year are included in the consolidated income statement from the date of acquisition or up to the date
of disposal.
For subsidiaries which were acquired by way of the issue of shares as identified in Note 6 to the financial
statements, and which satisfy the requirements of FRS 122 - Business Combinations, the merger method is
used to consolidate the results of these subsidiaries. The difference between the acquisition cost and the
nominal value of the share capital and reserves of the subsidiaries is taken to the merger reserve.
Intragroup transactions, balances and unrealised gains on transactions are eliminated; unrealised losses are also
eliminated unless cost cannot be recovered. Where necessary, adjustments are made to the financial statements
of subsidiaries to ensure consistency of accounting policies with those of the Group.
Minority interest is measured at the minorities share of the post acquisition fair values of the identifiable assets
and liabilities of the acquired subsidiary. Separate disclosure is made for minority interest.
Goodwill on consolidation represents the excess of the fair value of the purchase consideration over the Groups
share of the fair values of the identifiable net assets of the subsidiaries at the date of acquisition.
Goodwill is measured at cost less accumulated impairment losses, if any. The carrying value of goodwill is
reviewed for impairment annually. The impairment value of goodwill is recognised immediately in the
consolidated income statement. An impairment loss recognised for goodwill is not reversed in a subsequent
period.
If, after reassessment, the Groups interest in the fair values of the identifiable net assets of the subsidiaries
exceeds the cost of the business combinations, the excess is recognised immediately in the consolidated
income statement.

5. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD)
(e) Investments in Subsidiaries
Investments in subsidiaries are stated at cost in the balance sheet of the Company, and are reviewed for
impairment at the end of the financial year if events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying
values may not be recoverable.
On the disposal of the investments in subsidiaries, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the
carrying amount of the investments is taken to the income statement.
(f) Investments
Investments are held on a long-term basis and are stated at cost. Allowance for diminution in value is only
made if the directors are of the opinion that the diminution is permanent.
(g) Property, Plant and Equipment
Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses, if any.
Depreciation is calculated under the straight-line method to write off the cost of the assets over their estimated
useful lives.
Depreciation of an asset does not cease when the asset becomes idle or is retired from active use unless the
asset is fully depreciated. The principal annual rates used for this purpose are:-
Plant and machinery 5% - 10%
Gallery 10%
Motor vehicles 20%
Office equipment, furniture and fittings 10% - 20%
The depreciation method, useful life and residual values are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at each
balance sheet date to ensure that the amount, method and period of depreciation are consistent with previous
estimates and the expected pattern of consumption of the future economic benefits embodied in the items of
the property, plant and equipment.
Capital work-in-progress represents assets under construction, and which are not ready for commercial use at
the balance sheet date. Capital work-in-progress is stated at cost, and is transferred to the relevant category
of assets and depreciated accordingly when the assets are completed and ready for commercial use.
An item of property, plant and equipment is derecognised upon disposal or when no future economic benefits
are expected from its use. Any gain or loss arising from derecognition of the asset is included in the income
statement in the year the asset is derecognised.
(h) Impairment of Assets
The carrying amounts of assets, other than those to which FRS 136 - Impairment of Assets does not apply, are
reviewed at each balance sheet date for impairment when there is an indication that the assets might be
impaired. Impairment is measured by comparing the carrying values of the assets with their recoverable
amounts. The recoverable amount of the assets is the higher of the assets net selling price and their value-nuse,
which is measured by reference to discounted future cash flow.
An impairment loss is charged to the income statement immediately unless the asset is carried at its revalued
amount. Any impairment loss of a revalued asset is treated as a revaluation decrease to the extent of a
previously recognised revaluation surplus for the same asset.
In respect of assets other than goodwill, and when there is a change in the estimates used to determine the
recoverable amount, a subsequent increase in the recoverable amount of an asset is treated as a reversal of
the previous impairment loss and is recognised to the extent of the carrying amount of the asset that would have
been determined (net of amortisation and depreciation) had no impairment loss been recognised. The reversal
is recognised in the income statement immediately, unless the asset is carried at its revalued amount. A reversal
of an impairment loss on a revalued asset is credited directly to the revaluation surplus. However, to the extent
that an impairment loss on the same revalued asset was previously recognised as an expense in the income
statement, a reversal of that impairment loss is recognised as income in the income statement.

5. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD)
(i) Trademarks
The purchased trademark is stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and impairment losses, if any. The
trademark is amortised on a straight-line basis over a period of 10 years.
Trademarks are tested for impairment annually or more frequently when indicators of impairment are identified.
(j) Inventories
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is determined on the weighted average
basis, and includes all incidentals incurred in bringing the inventories to their present location and condition.
In arriving at net realisable value, due allowance is made for all damaged, obsolete and slow-moving items.
(k) Receivables
Receivables are carried at anticipated realisable value. Bad debts are written off in the period in which they are
identified. An estimate is made for doubtful debts based on a review of all outstanding amounts at the balance
sheet date.
(l) Payables
Payables are stated at cost which is the fair value of the consideration to be paid in the future for goods and
services received.
(m)Assets Under Hire Purchase
Plant and equipment acquired under hire purchase are capitalised in the financial statements and are
depreciated in accordance with the policy set out in Note 5(g) above. Each hire purchase payment is allocated
between the liability and finance charges so as to achieve a constant rate on the finance balance outstanding.
Finance charges are allocated to the income statement over the period of the respective hire purchase
agreements.
(n) Income Taxes
Income taxes for the year comprises current and deferred tax.
Current tax is the expected amount of income taxes payable in respect of the taxable profit for the year and is
measured using the tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date.
Deferred tax is provided in full, using the liability method, on temporary differences arising between the tax
bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the financial statements.
Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all taxable temporary differences other than those that arise from
goodwill or negative goodwill or from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction which is not
a business combination and at the time of the transaction, affects neither accounting profit nor taxable profit.
Deferred tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and unused tax
credits to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporary
differences, unused tax losses and unused tax credits can be utilised.
Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the period when
the asset is realised or the liability is settled, based on the tax rates that have been enacted or substantively
enacted at the balance sheet date.
Deferred tax is recognised in the income statement, except when it arises from a transaction which is recognised
directly in equity, in which case the deferred tax is also charged or credited directly in equity, or when it arises
from a business combination that is an acquisition, in which case the deferred tax is included in the resulting
goodwill or negative goodwill. The carrying amounts of deferred tax assets are reviewed at each balance sheet
date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profits will be available to allow
all or part of the deferred tax assets to be utilised.

5. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTD)
(o) Interest-bearing Borrowings
Interest-bearing borrowings are recorded at the amount of proceeds received, net of transaction costs.
All borrowing costs are charged to the income statement as expenses in the period in which they are incurred.
(p) Equity Instruments
Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Incremental costs directly attributable to the issue of new shares or
options are shown in equity as a deduction, net of tax, from proceeds.
Dividends on ordinary shares are recognised as liabilities when approved for appropriation.
(q) 1% Irredeemable Convertible Unsecured Loan Stocks (ICULS)
ICULS give the holders the right to convert the ICULS into ordinary shares of the Company at any time during
the conversion period. ICULS that are not converted by the holders at the expiry of the conversion period shall
be mandatorily converted into shares of the Company at the conversion price. As such, ICULS are recognised
in the financial statements based on the nominal value of the loan stocks and are classified as equity.
(r) Warrants
Warrants issued by the Company are initially recognised based on proceeds received and reflected in the
financial statements as warrants reserve. Upon the exercise of the warrants to subscribe for shares in the
Company, the warrants reserve will be transferred to the share premium account.
(s) Bonds and Commercial Papers (CPs)
Bonds and CPs issued by the Company are initially recognised based on proceeds received, net of issuance
expenses incurred and are adjusted in subsequent years for amortisation of discount and/or accretion of
premium to maturity, using the effective yield method. The discount amortised and/or premium accreted is
recognised in the income statement over the period of the bonds and CPs.
(t) Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash in hand, bank balances, demand deposits, deposits pledged with
financial institutions, bank overdrafts and short term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to
known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.
(u) Employee Benefits
(i) Short-term Benefits
Wages, salaries, paid annual leave, bonuses and non-monetary benefits are accrued in the period in which
the associated services are rendered by employees of the Group and of the Company.
(ii) Defined Contribution Plans
The Group and the Companys contributions to defined contribution plans are charged to the income
statement in the period to which they relate. Once the contributions have been paid, the Group and the
Company have no further liability in respect of the defined contribution plans.

For the purposes of these financial statements, a party is considered to be related if:-
(i) directly, or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, the party:-
controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, the entity (this includes parents, subsidiaries
and fellow subsidiaries);
has an interest in the entity that gives it significant influence over the entity; or
has joint control over the entity;
(ii) the party is an associate of the entity;

(w) Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets
A contingent liability is a possible obligation that arises from past events and whose existence will only be
confirmed by the occurrence of one or more uncertain future events not wholly within the control of the Group.
It can also be a present obligation arising from past events that is not recognised because it is not probable
that an outflow of economic resources will be required or the amount of obligation cannot be measured reliably.
A contingent liability is not recognised but is disclosed in the notes to the financial statements. When a change
in the probability of an outflow occurs so that the outflow is probable, it will then be recognised as a provision.
A contingent asset is a probable asset that arises from past events and whose existence will be confirmed only
by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain events not wholly within the control of the
Company.
(x) Revenue Recognition

Interest income is recognised on an accrual basis, based on the effective yield on the investment.

45. FAIR VALUES OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
Fair value is defined as the amount at which the financial instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction
between knowledgeable willing parties in an arms length transaction, other than in a forced sale or liquidation.
The following methods and assumptions are used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments:
(a) Long-Term Bank Loans and Bonds
The fair values of the long-term bank loans and bonds are determined by discounting the relevant cash flows
using current interest rates for similar types of instruments.
(b) Short-Term Borrowings, Other Current Liabilities and Commercial Papers
The carrying amounts approximated their fair values because of the short period to maturity of these
instruments.
(c) Hire Purchase Obligations
The fair values of hire purchase payables are determined by discounting the relevant cash flows using current
interest rates for similar types of instruments.
(d) Long-Term Other Receivable
The carrying amount approximated its fair value as this is a security deposit for a sale and leaseback transaction.
(e) Cash And Cash Equivalents And Other Short-Term Receivables/Payables
The carrying amounts approximated their fair values due to the relatively short-term maturity of these
instruments.
The nominal amount and net fair value of financial instruments not recognised in the balance sheets of the
Company are as follows:
THE COMPANY
Nominal Net
Amount Fair Value
At 31 October 2009 Note RM000 RM000
Long-term loan to subsidiaries 10 25,373 15,754
Contingent liability 41 157,000 *
At 31 October 2008
Long-term loan to subsidiaries 10 130,067 73,419
Contingent liability 41 158,129 *
* The net fair value of the contingent liability is estimated to be minimal as the subsidiaries are expected to fulfill
their obligations to repay their borrowings.
46. SIGNIFICANT EVENT SUBSEQUENT TO THE BALANCE SHEET DATE
Subsequent to the balance sheet date, the Company increased its issued and paid-up share capital from
RM157,090,078.50 to RM172,778,078.50 by the allotment of 31,376,000 new ordinary shares of RM0.50 each at
an issue price of RM0.70 per share under a private placement exercise. The shares were issued for cash
consideration for the purpose of working capital.
All the new shares issued subsequent to the balance sheet date rank pari passu in all respects with the existing
shares of the Company.
