The Company recognises the valuable contribution that it makes to long-term business prosperity and to ensuring accountability to its shareholders. The Company is managed in a way that maximises long term shareholder value and takes into account the interests of all of its stakeholders.
Fan Milk Limited believes that full disclosure and transparency in its operations are in the interests of good governance. As indicated in the statement of responsibilities of directors and notes to the accounts, the business adopts standard accounting practices and ensures sound internal control to facilitate the reliability of the financial statements. The Board of Directors The Board is responsible for setting the Company’s strategic direction, for leading and controlling the Company and for monitoring activities of executive management. The Board presents a balanced and understandable assessment of the Company’s progress and prospects.
The Board consists of the Chairman, five non-executive directors and an executive director (the managing director). The non-executive directors are independent of management and free from any constraints, which could materially interfere with the exercise of their independent judgement. They have experience and knowledge of the industry, markets, financial and/or other business information to make a valuable contribution to the Company’s progress. The managing director is a separate individual from the Chairman and he implements the management strategies and policies adopted by the Board.
They meet at least four times a year. The Audit Committee The Audit Committee is made up of four directors of whom three are non-executive directors and they meet twice a year. The main Board determines its terms of reference and they report back to the Board. Its duties include keeping under review the scope and results of the external audit, as well as the independence and objectivity of the auditor. The Audit Committee also keeps under review internal financial controls, compliance with laws and regulations and the safeguarding of assets.
It also reviews the adequacy of the plan of the internal audit and reviews its audit reports. 4 FAN MILK LIMITED Year ended December 31, 2009 CORPORATE GOVERNANCE (continued) Systems of Internal Control Fan Milk Limited has well-established internal control systems for identifying, managing and monitoring risks. These are designed to provide reasonable assurance that the risks facing the business are being controlled. The corporate internal audit function of the Company plays a key role in providing an objective view and continuing assessment of the effectiveness of the internal control systems in the business.
The systems of internal control are implemented and monitored by appropriately trained personnel and their duties and reporting lines are clearly defined. Code of Business Ethics Management has communicated the principles in the Company’s Code of Conduct to its employees in the discharge of their duties. This code sets the professionalism and integrity required for business operations which covers compliance with the law, conflicts of interest, environmental issues, reliability of financial reporting, bribery and strict adherence to the principles so as to eliminate the potential for illegal practices. REPORT OF THE INDEPENDENT AUDITOR TO THE MEMBERS OF FAN MILK LIMITED REPORT ON THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Fan Milk Limited set out on pages 8 to 30. These financial statements comprise the statement of financial position at December 31, 2009, and the statement of comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes.
Directors’ responsibility for the financial statements The directors are responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and with the requirements of the Companies Code, 1963 (Act 179). 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.
Auditor’s responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform our audit to obtain reasonable assurance that 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 the auditor’s judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s 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 company’s 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 opinion.
Opinion In our opinion the accompanying financial statements give a true and fair view of the state of the company’s financial affairs at December 31, 2009 and of its financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards and the requirements of the Companies Code, 1963 (Act 179). 6 REPORT OF THE INDEPENDENT AUDITOR TO THE MEMBERS OF FAN MILK LIMITED (continued) REPORT ON OTHER LEGAL REQUIREMENTS The Companies Code, 1963 (Act 179) requires that in carrying out our audit we consider and report to you on the following matters.
We confirm that: i) ii) iii) we have obtained all the information and explanations which to the best of our knowledge and belief were necessary for the purposes of our audit; in our opinion proper books of account have been kept by the company, so far as appears from our examination of those books; and the company’s statement of financial position and statement of comprehensive income are in agreement with the books of account.

General information Fan Milk Limited manufactures, distributes and sells dairy products and fruit drinks through a network of independent distributors and agents. The company is a public limited company incorporated and domiciled in Ghana under the Companies Code, 1963 (Act 179) and listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange.
The registered office is located at No. 1 Dadeban Road, North Industrial Area, Accra-North. 2. Summary of significant accounting policies The principal accounting policies applied in the preparation of these financial statements are set out below. These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless otherwise stated. (a) Basis of accounting The financial statements have been prepared on the historical cost basis. They have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
The management of Fan Milk Limited considers the following to be the most important accounting policies for the company. In applying these accounting policies, management makes certain judgements and estimates that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the year end date and the reported revenues and expenses during the financial year. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the company’s accounting policies described below. The Company has adopted the following new and amended IFRSs as of January 1, 2009: ?
IFRS 7 “Financial instruments – Disclosures” (amendment) – effective January 1, 2009. The amendment requires enhanced disclosure about fair value measurement and liquidity risk. In particular, the amendment requires disclosure of fair value measurements by level of a fair value measurement hierarchy. As the change in accounting policy only results in additional disclosure, there is no impact on earnings per share. ? IAS 1 (revised) “Presentation of financial statements” – effective January 1, 2009. The revised standard prohibits the presentation of items of income and xpenses (that is, `non-owner changes in equity`) in the statement of changes in equity, requiring `non-owner changes in equity` to be presented separately from owner changes in equity in a statement of comprehensive income. Comparative information has been re-presented so that it also is in conformity with the revised standard. As the change in accounting policy only impacts presentation aspects, there is no impact on earnings per share. 12 FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 NOTES (continued) (All amounts in the notes are shown in thousands of Ghana cedis unless otherwise stated) 2.
Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) (b) Property, plant and equipment Property, plant and equipment held for use in the production or supply of goods, or for administrative purposes are stated in the statement of financial position at historical cost or deemed cost less depreciation. Historical cost includes the expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the items. Deemed cost includes surpluses arising on the revaluation of certain properties to their fair values prior to the date of transition to IFRS.
Subsequent costs are included in the asset’s carrying amount or recognised as a separate asset, as appropriate, only when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the item can be measured reliably. The carrying amount of the replaced part is derecognised. All other repairs and maintenance are charged to the statement of comprehensive income during the financial period in which they are incurred. Assets in the course of construction are carried at cost less any recognised impairment loss. Cost includes professional fees which are capitalised in accordance with the Company’s accounting policy.
Depreciation of these assets commences when the assets are ready for their intended use. Land is not depreciated. Depreciation is calculated using the straight line method to write off the cost of each asset or revalued amounts over their estimated useful lives as follows: Buildings Plant and machinery Deep freezers and bicycles Distribution trucks Other motor vehicles Computer systems Furniture and fittings 10 – 20 years 10 years 5 years 8 years 5 years 3 years 5 years The assets’ residual values and useful lives are reviewed and adjusted if appropriate at each statement of financial position date.
Any asset’s carrying amount is written down immediately to its recoverable amount if the asset’s carrying amount is greater than its estimated recoverable amount. Gains and losses on disposals are determined by comparing the proceeds with the carrying amount and are recognised within other gains/(losses) in the statement of comprehensive income. When revalued assets are sold, the amounts included in other reserves are transferred to retained earnings. 13 FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009
NOTES (continued) (All amounts in the notes are shown in thousands of Ghana cedis unless otherwise stated) 2. Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) (c) Impairments of assets At each statement of financial position date, the company reviews the carrying amounts of its tangible and intangible assets to determine whether there is any indication that those assets have suffered an impairment loss. If any such indication exists, the recoverable amount of the asset is estimated in order to determine the extent of the impairment loss (if any).
Where the asset does not generate cash flows that are independent from other assets, the Company estimates the recoverable amount of the cash generating unit (CGU) to which the asset belongs. Recoverable amount is the higher of fair value less costs to sell and value in use. In assessing value-in-use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a post-tax discount rate that reflects the current market assessment of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset for which the estimates of future cash flows have not been adjusted.
If the recoverable amount of an asset (or CGU) is estimated to be less than the carrying amount, the carrying amount of the asset (CGU) is reduced to its recoverable amount. An impairment loss is recognised as an expense immediately. (d) Inventories Inventories are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is determined using the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method. The cost of finished goods and work in progress comprises raw materials, direct labour, other direct costs and related production overheads, based on normal operating capacity.
It excludes borrowing costs. Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business, less all estimated costs of completion and costs to be incurred in marketing, selling and distribution. Spare parts are written off in the year of purchase. (e) Investments and other financial assets Financial assets are classified as either financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, loans and receivables, held to maturity investments, or available for sale financial assets, as appropriate.
When financial assets are recognised initially, they are measured at fair value, (plus in the case of investments not at fair value through profit or loss, directly attributable costs). The Company determines the classification of its financial assets upon initial recognition and, where allowed and appropriate, re-evaluates this designation at each financial year end. All regular purchases and sales of financial assets are recognised on the trade date – the date on which the company commits to purchase or sell the asset. 14
FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 NOTES (continued) (All amounts in the notes are shown in thousands of Ghana cedis unless otherwise stated) 2. Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) (e) Investments and other financial assets (continued) Loans and receivables Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable payments that are not quoted in an active market. Such assets are carried at amortised cost using the effective interest method.
Gains and losses are recognised in income when the loans and receivables are derecognised or impaired, as well as through the amortisation process. (f) Trade receivables Trade receivables are amounts due from customers for goods sold in the ordinary course of business. If collection is expected in one year or less (or in the normal operating cycle of the business if longer), they are classified as current assets. If not, they are presented as non-current assets. Trade receivables are recognised initially at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost using the effective interest ethod, less allowance for impairment. An allowance for impairment of receivables is estimated when there is objective evidence that the company will not be able to collect all amounts due according to the original terms of the receivables. (g) Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents includes cash in hand, deposits held at call with banks, other short term highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less and bank overdrafts. Bank overdrafts are shown within borrowings in current liabilities on the statement of financial position. h) Trade payables Trade payables are initially recognised at fair value and subsequently measured at amortised cost. (i) Bank borrowings Interest bearing loans and overdrafts are recorded at the proceeds amount received net of direct issue costs. Finance charges payable on settlement or redemption and direct costs, are accounted for on an accrual basis in the statement of comprehensive income using the effective interest rate method and are added to the carrying amount of the instrument to the extent that they are not settled in the period in which they arise. 15
FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 NOTES (continued) (All amounts in the notes are shown in thousands of Ghana cedis unless otherwise stated) 2. Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) (j) Current and deferred income tax Current tax Current tax assets and liabilities for the current and prior periods are measured at the amount expected to be recovered from or paid to the taxation authorities. The tax rate and tax laws used to compute the amount are those enacted or substantively enacted by the statement of financial position date.
Deferred tax Deferred income tax is provided using the liability method on temporary differences at the statement of financial position date between the tax base of assets and liabilities and their carrying amount for financial reporting purposes. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all taxable temporary differences, except where the deferred tax liability arises from the initial recognition of goodwill or of an asset or liability in a transaction that is not a business combination and, at the time of the transaction, affects neither the accounting profit nor taxable profit or loss.
Deferred income tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences, carry-forward of unused tax credits and unused tax losses, to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporary differences, and the carry-forward of unused tax credits and unused tax losses can be utilised except where the deferred tax assets relating to the deductible temporary differences arise from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction that is not a business combination and, at the time of the transaction, affects neither the accounting nor taxable profit or loss. k) Leases Leases are classified as finance leases whenever the terms of the lease involve the substantial transfer of all the risks and rewards of ownership to the lessee. All other leases are classified as operating leases. Assets held under finance leases are recognised as assets of the Company at their fair value or, if lower, at the present value of the minimum lease payments, each determined at the inception of the lease. The corresponding liability to the lessor is included in the statement of financial position as a finance lease obligation.
Lease payments are apportioned between financing charges and a reduction of the lease obligation so as to achieve a constant rate of interest on the remaining balance of the liability. Finance charges are charged directly against income, unless they are directly attributable to qualifying assets, in which case they are capitalised with the Company’s policy on borrowing costs. 16 FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009
NOTES (continued) (All amounts in the notes are shown in thousands of Ghana cedis unless otherwise stated) 2. Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) (k) Leases (continued) Property, plant and equipment acquired under finance leases are depreciated over the shorter of the useful life of such assets or the lease period. Payments made under operating leases are charged to the statement of comprehensive income on a straight line basis over the period of the lease. l) Employee benefits Pension obligation The Company operates a defined contribution pension plan (provident fund). A defined contribution plan is a pension plan under which the Company pays fixed contributions into a separate entity. The Company has no legal or constructive obligations to pay further contributions if the fund does not hold sufficient assets to pay all employees the benefits relating to employee service. The contributions are recognised as employee benefit expense when they are due. m) Provisions Provisions are recognised when a present legal or constructive obligation exists as a result of past events, where it is more likely than not that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation and the amount can be reliably measured. (n) Revenue recognition Sale of goods Sales are recognised when the risks and rewards of the products have been substantially transferred to the customer. Sales are shown net of returns and value added tax. o) Foreign currencies Transactions are recorded on initial recognition in Ghana cedis, being the currency of the primary economic environment in which the company operates (the functional currency). Transactions in foreign currencies during the year are converted into Ghana cedis at prevailing rates of exchange ruling at the transaction dates. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into Ghana cedis at the rates of exchange ruling at the statement of financial position date.
The resulting gains and losses are dealt with in the statement of comprehensive income. 17 FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 NOTES (continued) (All amounts in the notes are shown in thousands of Ghana cedis unless otherwise stated) 2. Summary of significant accounting policies (continued) (p) Dividend Dividend distributed to the company’s shareholders is recognised as a liability in the financial statements in the period in which the dividends are approved by the Company’s shareholders. q) Post statement of financial position events Events subsequent to the statement of financial position date are reflected only to the extent that they relate directly to the financial statements and the effect is material. (r) Contingent liabilities Contingent liabilities are potential liabilities that arise from past events, the existence of which will be confirmed only on the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events which are not wholly within the control of the company.
Provisions for liabilities are recorded when a loss is considered probable and can be reasonably estimated. The determination of whether or not a provision should be recorded for any potential liabilities is based on management’s judgement. (s) Estimates Estimates 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. Because of the inherent uncertainties in this evaluation process, actual losses may be different from the originally estimated provision.
In addition, significant estimates are involved in the determination of provision related to taxes and litigation risks. These estimates are subject to change as new information becomes available and changes subsequent to these estimates may significantly affect future operating results. Accounting for property, plant and equipment, and intangible assets involves the use of estimates for determining the fair value at the acquisition date. Furthermore, the expected useful lives of these assets must be estimated.
The determination of the fair values of assets and liabilities, as well as of the useful lives of the assets is based on management’s judgement. (t) Segment reporting Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the chief operating decision-maker. The chief operating decision-maker is responsible for the allocation of resources and assessing the performance of the operation segments. 18 FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009

Contingent liabilities There were no contingent liabilities at the statement of financial position date (2008: GH? Nil). 25. Financial risk management Financial risk factors The Company’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks, including the effects of changes in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates. The Company’s overall risk management programme focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets and seeks to minimise the potential adverse effects on its financial performance.
Risk management is carried out by the management of the company under policies approved by the board of directors. Management identifies, evaluates and hedges financial risks. 407 180 302 129 351 267 1,237 825 2009 56 2008 – 27 FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 NOTES (continued) (All amounts in the notes are shown in thousands of Ghana cedis unless otherwise stated) 25. Financial risk management (continued) Sensitivity analysis – currency risk The Company seeks to reduce its foreign currency exposure through a policy of matching, as far as possible, assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies.
The Company imports raw materials, spare parts and equipment from overseas and therefore is exposed to foreign exchange risk arising from Euro and USD exposures. Management is responsible for minimising the effect of the currency exposure by buying foreign currencies when rates are relatively low and using them to settle bills when due. The Company hedges the currency risk using the practice stated above in order to mitigate currency risk as a result of changes in foreign exchange rates. The company’s hedging strategy is effective and movement in foreign exchange rates would have no material impact on the Company’s result. Sensitivity analysis – interest rate risk The Company’s exposure to the risk of changes in market interest rates relates primarily o the Company’s long-term obligations with a floating interest rate. To manage this risk, the Company’s policy is to contract for best interest rate borrowings when terms offered are attractive. The sensitivity analysis for interest rate risk shows how changes in the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market rates at the reporting date. The Company had no significant exposure to interest rate risk as at December 31, 2009. Total exposure to credit risk Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to credit risk are primarily cash and cash equivalents and accounts receivable. Account receivables are mainly derived from sales to customers.
The Company maintains a provision for impairment of trade receivables based upon the expected collectibility of all trade receivables. Trade receivables consist of invoiced amounts from normal trading activities. The Company has customers throughout Ghana and Liberia. Strict credit control is exercised through monitoring of cash received from customers and, when necessary, provision is made for specific doubtful accounts. As at December 31, 2009, management was unaware of any significant unprovided credit risk. 28 FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 NOTES (continued) (All amounts in the notes are shown in thousands of Ghana cedis unless otherwise stated) 25.
Financial risk management (continued) The table below shows the maximum exposure to credit risk by class of financial instrument: 2009 Bank balances (excluding cash) Trade and other receivables (excluding prepayments) Total credit risk exposure Liquidity risk The Company has incurred indebtedness but also has significant cash balances. The Company evaluates its ability to meet its obligations on an ongoing basis. Based on these evaluations, the Company devises strategies to manage its liquidity risk. Prudent liquidity risk management implies that sufficient cash is maintained and that sufficient funding is available through an adequate amount of committed credit facilities.
The Company has no limitation placed on its borrowing capability. The facilities expiring within one year are subject to renewal at various dates during the next year. The Company had the following unutilised banking facilities as at December 31, 2009: 2009 Expiring within one year 500 2008 500 15,073 2,230 17,303 2008 8,274 2,097 10,371 Cash of the Company is placed in interest bearing current accounts to provide sufficient funding to meet its debt financing plan. At the statement of financial position date cash held on the call account was GH? 5,946 (2008: GH? 3,788). This is expected to readily generate cash inflows for managing liquidity risk.
Maturity analysis of financial liabilities The table below analyses the company’s financial liabilities. All financial liabilities fall due for payment within six months. 2008 2009 Trade and other payables Finance lease liability 14, 272 14,272 9,522 197 9,719 29 FAN MILK LIMITED Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 + NOTES (continued) (All amounts in the notes are shown in thousands of Ghana cedis unless otherwise stated) 26.

Capital risk management The primary objectives of the company’s equity capital management are to ensure that the company is able to meet its debts as they fall due, to maximise shareholder value and benefits for other stakeholders and to maintain an optimal capital structure to reduce the cost of capital. No changes were made in the objectives, policies and processes from the previous years. 28. Segment information Management has determined the operating segments based on the reports reviewed by the head of department group that are used to make strategic decisions. The group considers the business from product perspective. The reportable operating segments derive their revenue from the manufacture and distribution of dairy products and fruit drink. Management considers the products to have similar economic characteristics and they have therefore been aggregated into a single operating segment. 593 2,031 30
