you of £150,000. The reporting package has been prepared in accordance with group accounting policies as notified by Mr Ed Tyrone (Group Financial Controller). Where no group policy has been notified, the reporting package has been prepared using accounting policies consistent with those adopted in previous years. The reporting package shows profit before taxation of Bhagat of £3.985 million, an increase of 10% on the previous year.

Audit work on the provision for warranty costs of £105,000 (2009: £175,000). Receipt of bank confirmation letter. Confirmation of balances due to other group companies .
