As Vietnam is participating further into the globalization process, the country is being integrated further into the ASEAN economic group and by the end of this year it will also start to join the free trade pact with the EU. Within this context, KDC needs a breakthrough strategy in order to continue its success. KDC has been in the Snack & Confectionery industry for the past two decades and been considered as one of the pioneers in Vietnam. During this period, KDC has successfully built its reputation as the most renowned name in this industry. However, continued success required KDC to seek growth beyond just the Confectionery space. There was a growing need for the company to find a new direction and a new area with a much larger playing field. Hence, a strategy was derived to extract the potentials from the Value Creation process and to re-direct the focus and resources into more larger segments. Make no mistake, KDC will continue to pursue the Food & Flavor strategy but looking at much larger categories and a much bigger space.. We will bring forward a new product portfolio that aims to increase (1) the number of potential consumers, (2) the consumption frequency of each consumer, and (3) reach towards overseas markets. In order for us to concentrate and redirect our scarce resources to enter into a larger Food and Flavor space, in 2014, KDC made a landmark transaction to transfer a portion of the Snack & Confectionery business to a strategic partner, Mondelēz International. This cooperation will help to accelerate the development of

ANNUAL REPORT 2014

Snack & Confectionery segment in the future by placing it in the hands of the world’s number one Confectionery company and allows us to focus on developing our presence in the much larger Food and Flavor space. With the strategic orientation of moving toward being a food conglomerate, KDC has undergone a prolonged Transformative Change with our focus being shifted from Value Conversion to Value Creation. This means the consumer is placed at the heart of our entire operational focus. For the next phase, KDC will focus on two strategic goals: (1) developing KDC to become a leading food conglomerate with specialized distribution channels; (2) develop and upgrading our Value Creation process. As the economy continues to develop, the Vietnamese consumers have increasingly more access to a variety of options, and information about products. Hence, in order to succeed, company needs to understand its consumer behavior, it’s changing dynamics and bring appropriate products to meet the specific needs of individual consumer. Recognizing the growing importance of consumer’s behavior in the growth of our company, KDC has set our goals to align our entire operations to ensure that we are able to meet the needs of individual consumers. For the next chapter of growth, our strategy will be centered on 4C’s (Consumer, Category, Country, Channel). The 4C’s is the new corporate strategy, which will help guide us for the coming years. It’s also designed to help us focus on the delivery of product to consumers and dictates the way in which we interact with them. This as we mentioned already is the core element of KDC’s focus during the next phase of development.


KDC HAS UNDERGONE 21 YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT WITH TREMENDOUS SUCCESSES. NOW, WE ARE ONCE AGAIN AT THE BEGINNING OF A NEW CHAPTER OF GROWTH, BACKED BY YEARS OF PREPARATION AND EXPERIENCE. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT KDC WILL CONTINUE ITS SUCCESS. In addition to the new strategic orientation for the Group, I am pleased to announce that our business has continued to achieve outstanding results. Our business has grown steadily with improved profitability despite a difficult external environment and moderate consumer demand. In addition, KDC has successfully launched the instant noodle product under the “Dai Gia Dinh” brand, marking our first entry into the daily essential space. In the upcoming months, our portfolio will further expand to include cooking oil and condiments. They will serve as the basis to develop and execute the new strategy. KDC has undergone 21 years of development with tremendous successes. Now, we are once again at the beginning of a new chapter of growth, backed by years of preparation and experience. I truly believe that KDC will continue its success. Looking back at our journey, we would like to thank the commitment, support and cooperation of our shareholders, investors, employees, partners, suppliers, and distributors. We truly could not have enjoyed these successes without all of you. I would like to wish you all great health and success in the upcoming year. TRAN KIM THANH Chairman Kinh Do Group

PROFIT BEFORE TAX IN 2014

Dear Shareholders, Last year, though we have seen economic recovery signals and a more stable GDP growth rate, the overall market was still hindered by moderate demand. However, KDC still achieved an impressive growth rate by concentrating on core business, shifting our operation toward the market, and improving our services to satisfy complex market demand. The year of 2014 also marked a turning point in the execution of our strategic plan. The year of 2014 was the year KDC continues to dedicate its efforts to Stage 4 of the Transformative Change: Profitable Growth which aimed at achieving profit from sustainable resources. I am glad to announce that KDC has reached the revenue of VND4,953 bn, equivalent to the growth of 8.6% YoY, net profit before tax of VND663bn, increasing by 7.1%YoY. Though operating profit margin remained stable compared to 2013, profit before tax still grew by 7.2% YoY. Net profit after tax also increased by 9.00%, reaching VND537 bn. Return on Equity this year decreased to 8.5% lower than last year level of 10.09%. However, if excluding the equity increased of VND 1,404 bn due to the private share issuance, this year ROE reached 11.0% in line with our commitment to the shareholders. Overall, efficiency in our operation provided us a strong momentum despite unfavorable macro environment and moderate market demand. To accomplish such outstanding result, I would like to express my gratitude to the commitment, support, and discipline of the entire KDC’s team. I also would like to thank our shareholders, investors, and partners including our suppliers, distributors for your support, and finally and dearly the consumer for the trust and belief in our company and our products.

Last year, the management structure under: Functions working directly with each Strategic Business Units under the monitor and guidance of the Executive Management Committee continues to show its effectiveness in managing an increasingly complex company. Timely management decisions made by EMC in the past year have helped the firm to maximize opportunities while control risks at acceptable level. In addition, KDC’s distribution platform was further strengthened becoming the foundation for our company to enter the daily essential space in the coming period. With over 200 distributors, 160,000 POS and 30,000 cold chains across the country, KDC has become one the best distribution platform in the domestic market. Aside from its scale, the highlight of the platform is the successful implementation of the Distribution Management System (DMS). This system allow us to monitor sales at retail level through mobile devices and set up automatic orders for the distributor. This, in turn, has accelerate our business cycle, the selling and delivery speed while improve the level of our customer services. Besides, understanding the importance of building and developing brand, we continuously launched a variety of campaigns that aims to increase brand recognition, consumer loyalty, and customer satisfaction. In the year 2014, KDC launched and re-launched a variety of core brands, for instance, Kinh Do Fresh Bun, AFC, Cosy Wafer, Snack, Cookies, Ice-cream and Yoghurt to satisfy the increasingly complex consumers’ demand. Trade marketing activities for core products, especially seasonal product lines like Mid-Autumn and Tet… were also enhanced. Remarkably, in additional to our premium offering, we recently launched many new product lines that dedicated to the health of consumers while remained affordable.

CEO’S MESSAGE

The year 2014 also earmarked our expansion toward Food & Flavor space. This includes products that are consumed daily including meal compliments and meal replacements and can be used multiple times throughout the day. Due to its nature, this space has high coverage and much higher penetration that promises a great potential for revenue and profit growth. 2015 economic outlook remains fairly moderate which will pose challenges to our business. However, there are signs of recovery from the real estate market while CPI index is forecasted to be quite stable. As such, following the 2015 strategic goals of our Chairman, KDC has outlined an execution plan in detail to pursue the strategy, accelerate our company growth rate and create more value to the Shareholders.

FOR THE UPCOMING CHAPTER, WE WISH THAT THE SHAREHOLDERS, INVESTORS AND PARTNERS INCLUDING OUR SUPPLIERS, DISTRIBUTORS WILL CONTINUE TO COMMIT AND SUPPORT US.

ANNUAL REPORT 2014


In the upcoming years, one of the key success factors for us is the development and efficiency improvements of our distribution channels. The success of the entire organization will depend on our ability to drive the efficiency of individual channel as well as cross channel synergy. Moving forwards, KDC will reorganized into a Food Conglomerate with each subsidiary specializing on one of the following channels: packaged, frozen, retail and export. Currently, KDC has already possessed a strong distribution platform, experienced sales force and high market coverage across the country. Post the transformation, KDC will look to enhance the synergy cross channels to increase overall efficiency. In the longer term, KDC will seek additional opportunities to enter into the regional and global market. In additional to leveraging our low cost base to enter global playground, we will look for opportunities to leverage regional resources to improve our Value Creation process. Furthermore, the entire category strategy of KDC will be consumer centric. Previously, serving opportunity of our product portfolio was limited within breakfast, afternoon tea, and dessert while missing two important periods: lunch and dinner. In addition, our consumer target age group was limited within 20 to 45 years old. Hence, in the future, we aim to diversify our product portfolio to serve the entire consumer base from urban to rural areas in different age group covering the entire consumer’s daily live. To be specific, after the launch of instant noodles at the end of 2014, we will look to launch premium instant noodles, cooking oil, condiments, and other products in Food & Flavor space. We have also build a system and process to collect and analyze consumer feedbacks. As such, KDC could understand what products that its customers need, where they want to buy, at which time to use and in turn driving the entire operation base on such information. Hence, we look to develop the Dai Gia Dinh brand to become a brand that is well connected

with Vietnamese families. Endorsed by this brand, more products will be launched to satisfy the needs of different type of consumers in different age group throughout the day. Even though Food & Flavor is an attractive space, it is also a field with large and experienced players. Thus, in order to prepare our entry, KDC needs a strong foundation that can sustain over the long term. As a result, KDC has restructured its Snack & Confectionery business by entering into a strategic partnership with Mondelēz International. This agreement will accelerate the development of Snack & Confectionery in the future and allow us to focus our resources to enter into Food & Flavor. Together with establishing a strategic plan and a details execution plan, we have also set up a proactive risk management process. The process will carefully monitor and actively manage potential external and internal risks to assure the execution of business targets each year. To be specific, risks may come from the industry, suppliers, customers, business partner, entrance into new market and consumers’ demand. For the upcoming chapter, we wish that the shareholders, investors, and partners including our suppliers, distributors will continue to commit and support us. Your trust will become our strength and motivation throughout our journey to accomplish our strategic goals and operating targets. Finally, I would like to wish you all great health and success in the upcoming year. TRAN LE NGUYEN Chief Executive Officer Kinh Do Group

AS THE COUNTRY DEVELOPS, VIETNAMESE CONSUMERS HAVE ALSO EVOLVED WITH INCREASING DEMANDS IN TERM OF PRODUCT QUALITY AND COMPLEXITY. THIS RESULTING CHANGE IN CONSUMER BEHAVIOR HAS CHANGED KDC’S BUSINESS MODEL FROM A PUSH TO A PULL MODEL CONNECTING US CLOSER TO THE CONSUMER.

Our business process is separated into two primary areas, including “Value Conversion” and “Value Creation”. The two distinct parts reflects the primary construct of KDC’s current business and the evolution of our business model over the last 21 years. The traditional process of Value Conversion which KDC was founded upon, relied heavily on pricing power and scale. Competitive advantages were defined by the ability to negotiate large discounts for volume and manufacturing in large enough scale to create price competitiveness. The types of products were not highly differentiated and growth required adding new categories or extension of existing products to expand. The market context was that consumers were not overly concerned with variety and choice but relied heavily on the availability of products to satisfy their needs. KDC extended business model to include Value Creation fairly early on, which is defined by investing in the process of branding, marketing, selling and distribution. This Value Creation process is much less tangible than Value Conversion (plant and equipment) and has taken a much larger investment in time and money to build. The Value Creation process includes investment in knowledge capital (system and processes), human capital (highly skilled professional managers) and intellectual capital (product brands and reputation). It is also a much more fluid investment which requires a different type of approach in management and is heavily reliant on knowledge capital to keep everything organized. While more complex, Value Creation can be leveraged to create much better returns and accelerate growth; as a result large improvements in our profitability profile. As the country develops, Vietnamese consumers have also evolved with increasing demands in term of product quality and complexity. This resulting change in consumer behavior has changed KDC’s business model from a push to a pull model connecting us closer to the consumer. This means that the flow of products and information has essentially formed a feedback loop that puts consumers at a critical juncture by giving them the ability to tell us what they want (pulling product). The consumers provide us insight into not only what type of products they like but also, where they would buy it, why they like it, when they eat it and who it’s meant for. This is in contrast to the traditional model where KDC dictated what products were available (push) and consumers readily accepted it since they were much less discerning given fewer choices. Thus, our ability to collect and analyze consumer insight is critical for future success and improves our capability to adapt and evolve as an organization to meet the changes of the consumer base.

STRATEGIC ORIENTATION

OUR STRATEGIC FOCUS HAS SHIFTED IN THE LAST YEAR AS WE COME TO THE COMPLETION OF OUR TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGE WHICH WE UNDERTOOK BETWEEN 2009 TO 2014. THIS STRATEGY INCLUDED FOUR KEY STAGES:

Preparation

Profitability through Efficiencies

The period was categorized by the merger of KDC, NKD, BKD and KIDO under a single entity. During this phase we established an operational framework to operate under an unified group structure in order to prepare for accelerated growth across categories.

Having established a strong foundation, we focused on bridging the gaps throughout the KDC Platform in order to synchronize the growth mindset and profitability culture. The methodology to “Bridge the Gap” was implemented to continuously seek additional operational efficiencies, improved cost management and as a result better quality profitability.

2009 - 2010

2012  

2011

Foundation The purpose here was to drive growth and enhance the economies of scale around the combined business. Having reached record sales growth, we begun the process of rationalizing processes and seeking efficiencies throughout our operations.

ANNUAL REPORT 2014

2013 to 2014

Profitable Growth The focus during this final stage of transition was not only to grow at any expense but to achieve a profitable and managed level of growth. The ethos here was to rationalize growth while not sacrificing profitability to achieve it. The aim was to build better quality earnings from sustainable sources. This meant a push towards asset efficiency, rationalizing quality of investments (brands and equipment) and growing revenue by improving product diversity and quality.


In order to complete the Transformational Change, we needed to maintain our focus in order to achieve our strategic goals. As such, we narrowed down our strategic focus by featuring 3P’s that we believe were pivotal in our success:

AMONG THE 3P’S FOCUS, THE MOST ADAPTIVE ELEMENT IS THE PRODUCT STRATEGY.

PLATFORM The organization and operational platform to execute the strategy of rapid growth and profitability.

PEOPLE Strengthening the combined resources across the group to optimize value for the organization.

PRODUCT The development of

products that are adaptive to consumer tastes and demand. The “Value Creation” process leading to better customer loyalty and as a result stronger brands.

Among the 3P’s focus, the most adaptive element is the product strategy. We have previously identified our product strategy to be based on the Snack &

Confectionery category with an extension into Food & Flavor based on the same platform to leverage further efficiencies and growth.

Low Historically, the growth of KDC has been based on the strong performance and dominant position of the company in the Snack & Confectionery space. This served as the foundation of the product strategy and despite our dominant position, became a limiting factor in our growth due to the market size. To counter the seasonal nature and small market size of the Snack & Confectionery, KDC extended its product strategy to include Food & Flavor. The products here

ANNUAL REPORT 2014

include meal compliments and replacements which are characterized by items and products that are used by consumers on a daily basis, and can be used during a much higher number instances during the day. In 2014, as part of this strategy, KDC successfully launched instant noodles under the brand “Dai Gia Dinh” and is preparing an oil product and a seasoning product as a brand extension. The idea is to expand our product offering to continue to improve the penetration of products into the daily lives of consumers.

A STRATEGIC DECISION WAS MADE TO EXPLORE THE POTENTIAL TO UNLOCK SOME OF THE VALUE IN KDC THAT RESIDED IN THE VALUE CONVERSION PART OF THE BUSINESS AND TO REFOCUS THE COMPANY AGAINST HIGHER GROWTH AREAS WITH BROADER POTENTIAL.

As we began to review the completion of the Transformative Change, the Board of Directors began a strategic review into the future of the KDC business. They looked at the construct of the existing business model, which is defined by a combination of Value Conversion and Value Creation in order to determine where we can derive the most future value for shareholders. A strategic decision was made to explore the potential to unlock some of the value in KDC that resided in the Value Conversion part of the business and to refocus the company against higher growth areas with broader potential. This naturally led us to review and rationalize the Value Conversion part of our business under Snack & Confectionery. The resulting decision, thus, was to seek a compatible partner in the Snack & Confectionery space to provide the leverage to accelerate our entry into the Food & Flavor category which was deemed to be a much larger and robust market. This resulted in the signing of an agreement with Mondelēz International to bring forward the future value of the Snack & Confectionery business and to effectively hand over the Value Creation process for the Snack & Confectionery business to them. While it would seem like a large transition due to the reduction of our stake in that part of the business, it is necessary to note that KDC’s core business is the Food & Beverage business. The Snack & Confectionery business is a small portion of that which we believe has much lower growth potential than the overall Food & Flavor space. The proposed deal also created a unique opportunity from a Value Creation process perspective since it allows KDC to focus purely on the Value Creation process rather than juggling between the labor intensive aspect of Value Conversion and Value Creation.

CORPORATE STRATEGY

THE VALUE CREATION PROCESS IS DRIVEN BY A REVISED CORPORATE STRATEGY WHICH WILL REPLACE THE TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGE STRATEGY. OUR REVISED CORPORATE STRATEGY WILL BE DIVIDED INTO A FOUR PART EXECUTION PLAN WHICH INCLUDES 1) CONSUMER 2) CATEGORY 3) COUNTRY 4) CHANNEL. THESE 4C’S (CONSUMER, CATEGORY, COUNTRY, CHANNEL) WILL DEFINE OUR EXECUTION PLAN FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS AND IS INTENDED TO SERVE AS A MAP UPON WHICH KDC CAN EXTEND ITS VALUE CREATION PROCESS IN AN ACCELERATED FASHION AND AS A RESULT DELIVER HIGHER SHAREHOLDER RETURNS AND PROFITS.

  The Food & Flavor strategy was implemented with the goal of deepening our impact with our consumer base. The intention was to create additional touch point that was beyond seasonal. The Transformative Change was really about creating efficiencies in reach through scale via the consolidation of the entire group operations. In contrast, the new Value Creation strategy based on the 4C’s will focus on leveraging the platform created after the Transformative Change to increase market penetration. Understanding that growth comes from two dimensions of consumer behavior, we are extending beyond just reaching our consumers and including creating more opportunities to use our products by having the right products in the right place for the right people. This is where the Food & Flavor strategy becomes so critical to the fulfillment of the Value Creation strategy and why the 4C’s are essential for future growth. The

ANNUAL REPORT 2014

nature of additional product categories lend itself to multiple opportunities for use and as a result will support better penetration of our products to the consumer base. Snack & Confectionery is primarily a broad reach category but with shallow penetration and this is primarily due to the fact that it is: seasonal, having low frequency of usage and limited opportunities for use. As a result, it has limited opportunity for industry growth overall and is one of the key headwinds for us to achieve strong company growth. The characteristics that give Food & Flavor appeal includes broad base reach and deep penetration. It includes items that are used daily, with increased consumption frequency. The nature of this makes it both attractive and competitive but leveraging KDC’s Corporate Strategy, platform, and pre-existing infrastructure has made entry much easier and helped to drive sales in these new categories.

Consumer & Convenience Food & Flavor: Meal Compliments & Replacements Snack & Confectionery: Gifting & Seasonal CHANNEL

AS WE LOOK TOWARDS THE FUTURE, WE RECOGNIZE THE DYNAMICS OF THE VIETNAMESE CONSUMER HAVE CHANGED AND WILL CONTINUE TO CHANGE AS THE COUNTRY EVOLVES. GIVEN THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CONSUMER, WE HAVE EXPANDED OUR STRATEGY TO INCLUDE THE NEXT TIER OF OUR CATEGORY STRATEGY WHICH WE WILL CALL “CONSUMER & CONVENIENCE”.

PACKAGED/EXPORT

Meal Supplies & Solutions

Desserts

FROZEN/CHILLED

RETAIL

Our previous strategy relied on mass market distribution in both packaged and frozen channels. The formula was to make the product (Value Conversion) and the market/sell/distribute the product (Value Creation). This was a highly successful and effective strategy as we reached scale early on in the company’s history and we were able to hold a dominant market position in each of the categories we participated in. The Snack & Confectionery category was the foundation of this strategy and helped us to form a platform upon which we were able to enter the Food & Flavor space. We were able to sell more things, in the same channels at a more frequent rate. As we look towards the future, we recognize the dynamics of the Vietnamese consumer have changed and will continue to change as the country evolves. Given the importance of the consumer, we have expanded our strategy to include the next tier of our Category Strategy which we will call “Consumer & Convenience”. Without giving too much away, it will be a purely consumer centric strategy focused on choices and delivery methods that will best fit the consumer segment we are targeting. The entry into Consumer & Convenience will rely on a successful transition into Food & Flavor which will provide scale through meal compliments & replacement products launched. It will also see that we extend the category beyond this into meal supplies and solutions. Operationally, this will see us leveraging our strength in the frozen and chilled channel to beyond just dairy & desserts. In addition, the importance of cross channel coordination and efficiency will begin to become more and more important in our ability to increase KDC’s efficiency.

KDC’S FUTURE DOES NOT ONLY REST IN VIETNAM ALONE. WHILE THE DOMESTIC MARKET WITH OVER 90 MILLION CONSUMERS IS INTERESTING AND ATTRACTIVE FOR KDC, THERE ARE GROWING EXTERNAL THREATS THAT COULD CHANGE THE BALANCE OF DOMINANCE IN THE DOMESTIC FOOD & BEVERAGE SPACE.

KDC’s future does not only rest in Vietnam alone. While the domestic market with over 90 million consumers is interesting and attractive for KDC, there are growing external threats that could change the balance of dominance in the domestic food & beverage space. With the rapid integration of regional markets, and reduction in tariffs, we recognize the inevitable competition that is targeted at Vietnam given its attractiveness.

Our simplified version of how KDC (Vietnam) will integrate into this broader context is to see KDC (Vietnam) initially as an importer of concepts and categories (product ideas) combined with leveraging our Value Creation process. The combination will drive efficiency in our channel centric organization and keep product portfolio/ selection at the top of our agenda; and as a result creating flexibility to execute our Consumer & Convenience category strategy. Meanwhile, KDC will also leverage the low cost base (Value Conversion) in Vietnam to be an exporter of product to regional markets. These products would be simple items that we already make here, or a version of our imported concepts Me and categories at a reduced production costs and al so improved profits margin. lu

These include four different primary distribution channels that are responsible for handling packaged foods, frozen/chilled products, retail and export.

Seeking for convenience Number of convenience stores in 2013 increased by 50% compared to those in 2012 and will continue to be on a rising trend for the next few years. One third of total households in the urban area shop at the convenience stores in 2015 and the figure is forecasted to reach 100% by 2020 based a research of Kantar World Panel. Most consumers seek for convenience in life and are willing to pay extra for alternatives that save their time and efforts. Online shopping Shopping online, even though not being widespread at the moment, is considered to have huge potential. Currently, TV commercials and outdoor advertisements continue to be the most popular methods. Digital & Mobile trend The forecasted figure for 2015 indicates a broader use of Internet by consumers. Currently, about 40 million people (equivalent to 43% of the total population) are using the Internet, among which 36% have their phone connected with the Internet for frequent usage.

MARKET OVERVIEW

OUR INDUSTRY HAS CONTINUED TO SEE FAVORABLE AND ACCOMMODATIVE POLICIES ON THE SUPPLY SIDE FOR PRODUCTION, INCLUDING BOTH INPUTS AND FINANCING COSTS. IN CONTRAST, WE SAW VERY LITTLE CATALYST ON THE DEMAND SIDE TO DRIVE GROWTH AND EXPANSION.

NET PROFIT AFTER TAX

537 VND BILLION

ANNUAL REPORT 2014

Macro Environment Against a backdrop of relatively benign growth and low inflation, the overall economy has undergone a well managed recovery from 2011 till today. The prevailing stable conditions in 2014 have been an extension of the policies from 2013 and continues to be resilient against both major external and internal macro economic shocks. The stability created a unique environment which includes the lowest CPI in over a decade caused by falling food prices and fuel prices and a more stable GDP growth. However, even at these depressed pricing levels, consumer demand is muted with confidence levels at an all time low. Hence, the slow expansion can be largely attributed to low demand and ample supply. To understand last year’s market dynamics, we need to look at different factors affecting supply and demand. On the supply side, we saw overall credit growth decelerate sharply since 2011, averaging well under 20% for the last 3 years, which reinforces the fact of underinvestment and low GDP growth. Despite such a decrease, money supply continued to expand and therefore created strong liquidity in the domestic market. With low credit growth, strong liquidity, and low CPI, the only asset class that was able to absorb that amount of excess funds was government bonds. Looking more into the liquidity situation, created a low interest rate environment yet the markets continued to be risk adverse. Low interest rates are a result of falling yields caused by strong liquidity chasing government   bonds. The government issued significant amount of bonds to absorb this liquidity resulting in the strong expansion of the public sector balance sheet. The continued expansion of the public sector balance sheet had been aimed at financing the structural reform of the banking sector rather than other productive areas (i.e. investment or growth). Therefore, we had a unique situation of risk adversity with strong liquidity, coupled with low inflation, low interest rates and low GDP growth. Against this macroeconomic backdrop, our industry has continued to see favorable and accommodative policies on the supply side for production, including both inputs and financing costs. In contrast, we saw very little catalyst on the demand side to drive growth and expansion. This has been characterized by low disposable incomes, low wealth creation and also a lack of real growth, which has affected the overall consumer sentiment. The contradicting situation primarily related to the fact that the flow of funds in accommodative supply policies had been ultimately used to clean up the banking sector NPL’s. This left the larger economy underinvested and without a clear catalyst or fuel for growth. Specifically, the consumers and our target markets have been left nominally the same as when we started the crisis, indicating no sign of growth while sentiment continues to be poor, and outlook negative...


GROUP RESULTS

Performance The fiscal year 2014 was an extension of the previous year strategy where we continued to focus our efforts on Stage 4 of our Transformative Change Strategy: Profitable Growth. The strategy proved to be resilient against the benign economic conditions and poor consumer sentiment. To be specific, the favorable supply conditions allowed us to continue monitizing on the restructuring of our value chain which we have divided into value conversion and value creation. This delineation has supported to focus and target our efforts to extract value and efficiency. Moreover, internal initiatives prevailed over implementing external ones such as advertising and promotions as poor consumer demand limited the effectiveness of external investments in the market. Despite the lack of strong interest and demand and supply imbalances, we were able to increase net sales by 8.6% reaching VND4,953bn. Gross profit margins were on target at 43.0% with input prices remaining relatively stable across the board. Global commodity prices continued to be stable throughout 2014, which allowed for a significant decline in raw material price risk versus 2013. The primary cost increases were domestically driven, including labor, electricity and manufacturing overhead, which combined accounted for less than 15% of our total cost of goods sold;

limiting the impact of its increase. The sharp decline in oil prices in the last part of 2014 have yet to impact our raw material input costs, however this should positively impact our profitability by the 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2015 as the flow through from oil price declines begin to reach our suppliers of key commodities. Selling and general administrative costs were in line with revenue growth but it’s important to note that the construct of these costs have altered slightly. During the course of 2014, we continued to rationalize and realign our process to create better quality earnings. Overall operating costs compared to 2013 has actually declined, and the actual increase of 17.2% was based on infrastructure investment that was designed for future capacity and capability, including the relocation of our corporate offices, building of additional warehouse capacity in the north, and investing in additional cold chain capacity. Sales and marketing costs increased by 21.8% year on year. The breakdown between variable and fixed costs are now approximately 48% vs. 52%. Variable costs consisting of advertising and promotion expenses, and fixed costs consisting of infrastructure costs. Advertising and promotional spending was well managed and reduced by VND70bn. Trade marketing activities increased by VND59bn and has been targeted at our core products to drive sales volume growth.

Overall, 2014 spending was well managed with variables directly in line with our growth and fixed at a managed rate that balanced the immediate impact and future growth. Sales infrastructure costs increased by 46.6%, within which the primarily is due to the regulated rise in salaries and wages as set out by the government in the early part of 2014. The additional increase was the result of sales incentives, which were paid out for successful achievement of volume targets. Net operating profit was flat against 2013 and the difference primarily being a proactive approach to investing in infrastructure for future growth. This was balanced with an overall increase in profits before tax of VND 663bn, which was 7.2% better year-on-year. The savings from financing costs and reductions in debt were used to finance last year structural investment which helped to bring profits growth back in line with overall growth. Profit after taxes were 9.0% better reaching VND537bn, which was a direct result of active management over tax strategies, which helped to save approximately VND12bn in taxes paid against a higher pre-tax profit. Overall, while there continued to be a lack of a strong catalyst to drive growth combined with strong headwinds in our industry, we maintained our performance with a defensive strategy. In a meantime, some of these challenges while manageable are believed to be structural across the entire Confectionery industry. Therefore, a strategic review was undertaken to address longer term growth issues, resulting in strong shift in strategy   that will see us expanding beyond snack & Confectionery. Assets Financial liquidity positions continued to be strong, with cash positions increasing from 2013 through a private placement in 2014, which was earmarked for several M&A projects. We are now becoming more aggressive in deployment as we believe that the current economic cycle is prime for investment entry as the market continues to be liquid but risk adverse. Since our first investment in Vinabico, we have continued this process with a strategic investment of 24% in Vocarimex, Vietnam’s largest edible oil company. Regarding this

ANNUAL REPORT 2014


GROSS PROFIT

2,146 VND BILLION

investment, we have earmarked an addition VND700bn to increase our stake beyond 51%, which should be concluded by the end of 2015. Other investments relating to PP&E were kept minimal in 2014 as we continued to digest the CAPEX made during 2013. Liabilities Our debt ratios remain fairly consistent with 2013’s debt-equity ratio of 0.25 times and an external gearing of 0.09 times. Taking advantage of the domestic liquidity and also as part of the cost reduction strategy, we fully repaid the more expensive long-term loans taken out in early 2014 with lower cost financing. This helped us to reduce average borrowing costs from 6.5% in 2013 to 4.1% in 2014. Even though we do not believe that our cost of borrowing can be reduced further, we continue to be bullish on the domestic liquidity and the current rate levels. Therefore, we continue to maintain shorter duration debt and do not foresee the need to swap funding further. We continue to actively monitor potential funding issues which could negatively impact these funding positions. Working Capital We continue to find efficiencies in our working capital management with a further reduction in our business cycle from 32.96 days to 31.93 days. The reduction was contributed primarily by reduction in inventory, which continued to be well managed and significantly improved by our Distributor Management System, which supported us to manage inventory levels throughout our supply chain. Return on Equity & Total Shareholder Return Return on equity was 8.6% vs. last year’s 10.09% but against a net increase of equity of approximately VND1,404bn due to the private placement. Excluding such impact, Return on Equity would have been 11.0%, which is close to where our commitment to shareholders has been. Regarding the positive financial highlights, it has been proven that we continued to be strongly committed to growth, profitability and returns and believed in maintain a relatively strong payout to shareholders.

CORPORATE

GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE POLICY FOUNDATION KDC views each stakeholder as a customer, including consumers of our products, suppliers to our business, distributors, retailers, investors and employees. We recognize that each group of stakeholders are not mutually exclusive and, therefore, it is critical for us to be consistent in our communication to them to ensure that all parties understand our strategic orientation and direction.

To ensure that our corporate activities and initiatives meet the expectation of different groups of stakeholders and to enable us to meet the dynamics of a constantly changing business environment, we prioritize the need to enhance the corporate governance structure and as a result our management capability. This will enable us to build trust through transparency and social responsibility with our stakeholders.

FEATURES OF OUR CORPORATE GOVERNANCE STRUCTURE KDC has undergone a significant transformation over the last five years and throughout the process our goal has been to create a strong foundation of systems and processes to execute and deliver sustainable business results. Thus, we have put foremost the mission to simplify our corporate structure to improve corporate transparency and enable efficiency enhancements across all activities.

We have also adopted a cross functional Executive Management Committee (EMC) structure that has helped to improve communication across the group and facilitate fast and timely decision making. This cross-functional structure relies on transparency between functions and throughout the group to facilitate discussion and decision making that enhance efficiency.

 

ANNUAL REPORT 2014


We have already introduced Strategic Business Units operational model for some time to manage the commercial aspects of our business. However, after the most recent restructure, now SBU’s report directly to the EMC and we have also aligned the SBU’s within the Corporate Companies (Business Units) to better align responsibility with accountability. HOLDING COMPANY STRUCTURE KDC implemented a holding company structure through the proposed restructuring approved at the 2014 Annual General Meeting. The restructuring was completed and the holding structure started operating on January 1st, 2015. The move to a holding company structure really aimed at creating scale and focused at the operating level, while allowing resources and experience to be leveraged at the group level and subsequently deployed across both the SBU and the BU level. The goal of the restructuring is to ensure that we specialize areas that are scale focused and combine

resources in areas that are skill focused. The objective is to enhance our ability to respond to a constantly changing business environment in a timely manner and capitalize on opportunities more effectively. BOARD OF DIRECTORS The Board of Directors consists of 9 directors including 3 independent members. Independent directors are chosen from a pool of candidates that are screened based on their career experience and background. The selection process is a robust process where each candidate is filtered based on the diversity of their skillset that we hope will add value to the group across a broad number of disciplines. Our independent directors have a diverse background with a member serving as an international lawyer, another is a long time researcher and financial markets educator and the last as a supply chain expert. The depth of their knowledge and keen insight has helped to increase the transparency and diversity that we need to make strategic decisions and set the company direction.

ANNUAL REPORT 2014


EXECUTIVE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE Last year, KDC introduced the Executive Management Committee (EMC) to implement the group’s strategic directives as set by the Board of Directors. The EMC is granted with the authority to manage and execute operational decisions and are responsible for timely execution of operations. The EMC consists of a cross functional group of individuals including those from sales, marketing, supply chain, manufacturing, general management and finance. Each EMC member is given a functional responsibility over a portfolio of functions that are directly related to their operations, interactions and efficiencies. They collective group leverage their diverse backgrounds and experience to discuss and deliberate on issues that are affecting the entire company and make timely decisions to execute operations. The EMC meets on a weekly basis and provides the board with monthly updates on performance and any pending issues.

STRATEGIC BUSINESS UNITS/BUSINESS UNITS The introduction of SBU’s and BU’s has been part of the Transformative Change initiative introduced in 2009. The recent restructuring saw the realignment of the SBU’s and BU’s and gave priority over commercial decision making back to the SBU’s and allowed the BU’s to play a broader supporting function. The SBU’s take sole responsibility for business results but coordinate closely with the BU’s for their execution. The SBU’s are also accountable and responsible for reporting back to the EMC and implementing group initiatives within their respective businesses lines. For the most part, SBU’s in conjunction with the BU’s have full independence on executing operational decisions.

SUB-COMMITTEES There are three primary Sub-Committees including Corporate Strategy, Risk Management and Disclosure. Each Sub-Committee meets regularly to deliberate and review prevailing issues. Each meeting is reported back to the EMC who reviews and determines if any issue warrants further action at the operational level.

RISK MANAGEMENT/ INTERNAL CONTROL PROCESS The SBU’s and BU’s conduct ongoing risk identification which are then consolidated at the Risk Management Sub-Committee to monitor risks across the group. These reports are presented to the EMC who discusses and deliberates on the potential impact and probability in order to determine which ones need to be addressed. Risk factors are categorized through a grading system from Unlikely to Highly Probably and scored against potential impact that ranges from Marginal to Major with potential monetary values assigned. If a potential risk factor is identified to have the likelihood of “Probable” and with a potential impact of Significant, it is sent to the Risk Management Sub-Committee to work with Internal Control to come up with a control activity to monitor and mitigate the risk. For all risk and impact levels that have control activities created around them, they are returned

ANNUAL REPORT 2014

to the SBU’s and BU’s to continue to monitor the situation to ensure that any increase or change is promptly reported to the Sub-Committee. These policies and procedures are updated into our management system and made available on the company intranet. Internal Control will follow up to audit the process and review its implementation on a regular basis. On an annual basis, controls and risk management monitoring systems are audited by internal control and any changes needed are implemented following the audit. Post reviews, new policies are adopted and implemented and the cycle starts again to ensure that risk management is active vs. passive in nature which is more suitable for a dynamic business environment like Vietnam.


ON AN ANNUAL BASIS, CONTROLS AND RISK MANAGEMENT MONITORING SYSTEMS ARE AUDITED BY INTERNAL CONTROL AND ANY CHANGES NEEDED ARE IMPLEMENTED FOLLOWING THE AUDIT.

KEY RISK FACTORS

Corporate Risk Overview

STRATEGIC RISKS

Macro-economic, socio-political and regulatory Risks

Growth in the consumer goods space (particularly in the food and beverage category) is highly dependent on consumer spending, sentiment and confidence. Economic downturns and socio-political issues negatively impact consumer spending as individuals reduce discretionary spending. KDC monitors the regional economic and socio-political environment closes to anticipate changes in consumer sentiment. We also maintain conservative policies in product purchasing, working capital management and cost controls to ensure sensitivity to demand changes are minimized.

Dependency Risk

Risk associated with a dependence on a particular supplier, customer, business partner or product. An over reliance on a particular supplier, customer or product makes KDC vulnerable to sales reductions and margin pressures. To mitigate this risk, KDC works with a broad network of suppliers both domestically and internationally to ensure not only stability in the supply chain but also the best quality. KDC manages the distribution network in the same manner, ensuring that no one customer in any geography is over 10% of our total sales volume.

Execution Risk

The recent shift of KDCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic direction has the potential to increase execution risk as we add new products and also processes to deliver those products to market. The mitigation here is that we have created a robust platform that we believe has the ability to plug and play. In addition, the strength and loyalty of our networks has given us the ability to minimize the execution risk in and around new product/category launches.

Consumer Demand Risk

Being able to anticipate changes in consumer sentiment and demand is a critical success factor and failure to do so represents a significant risk to KDC. In order to mitigate this, KDC leverages its Value Creation process in order to proactively manage the feedback process in order to minimize the risk of consumer demand risk.

â&#x20AC;&#x2020;

ANNUAL REPORT 2014


OPERATIONAL RISKS

Customer Relationship Risk

Having strong retailer and distributor relationships is a critical success factor for ensuring product reach, penetration and sales growth. Failure to maintain these relationships represents a potential risk factor to KDC and in order to mitigate this, we are committed to delivering outstanding customer service which is supported by our technological infrastructure that enables us to connect closer to our value chain downstream. This includes the ability to monitor inventory levels, sales process, and also consumer feedback; creating a robust system that enhances customer relationships.

Volatility of Raw Material Prices

Changes in raw material prices pose a significant risk to our profitability and margins. In order to mitigate this risk, we share the responsibility of managing this risk with our suppliers. We provide them with a clear forward looking materials demand plan and secure fixed pricing for a period of time in order to have stability and certainty in our production costs.

COMMODITY PRICE RISK FINANCIAL RISK

Currency Risks

Currency risks are a direct result of our foreign exchange inflows and also foreign exchange denominated borrowing. To the extent possible, we ensure a natural hedge to ensure that the inflows are sufficient to cover the outflows of US dollar in order to mitigate the currency risks.

Financing and Liquidity Risks

Changes in the global and regional financial markets may have a significant impact on interest rates, which may lead to risks associated to profitability, liquidity and financing. In order to mitigate this risk, we actively monitor the markets and also the duration of our debt positions to ensure that we have enough cash flows and cash balances to meet our obligations. In the event that markets contract and liquidity is scarce, causing rates to rise, we reduce our debt positions using our cash balances and supplement working capital financing with cash on hand.

The Shareholders of Kinh Do Corporation

We have audited the accompanying consolidated financial statements of Kinh Do Corporation and its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as “the Group”) as prepared on 26 March 2015 and set out on pages 90 to 135 which comprise the consolidated balance sheet as at 31 December 2014, the consolidated income statement and consolidated cash flow statement for the year then ended and the consolidated notes thereto. Management’s responsibility Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these consolidated financial statements in accordance with Vietnamese Accounting Standards, Vietnamese Enterprise Accounting System and the statutory requirements relevant to preparation and presentation of consolidated financial statements, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation and presentation of consolidated financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditors’ responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with Vietnamese Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated   financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors’ judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated 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 consolidated 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 entity’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

3.5

Leased assets The determination of whether an arrangement is, or contains a lease is based on the substance of the arrangement at inception date and requires an assessment of whether the fulfilment of the arrangement is dependent on the use of a specific asset and the arrangement conveys a right to use the asset. A lease is classified as a finance lease whenever the terms of the lease transfer substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the asset to the lessee. All other leases are classified as operating leases. Where the Group is the lessee Rentals under operating leases are charged to the consolidated income statement on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease term. Where the Group is the lessor Assets subject to operating leases are included as the Groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fixed assets in the consolidated balance sheet.

The cost of an intangible asset comprises its purchase price and any directly attributable costs of preparing the intangible asset for its intended use. Expenditures for additions, improvements are added to the carrying amount of the assets and other expenditures are charged to the consolidated income statement as incurred.

The useful lives of land use rights are assessed as either finite or indefinite. Accordingly, land use right with finite lives representing the land lease are amortized over the term of lease while the land use right with indefinite useful lives are not amortized.

Depreciation and amortization (continued)

B 09 - DN/HN

The useful life of the fixed assets and depreciation and amortization rates are reviewed periodically to ensure that the method and the period of the depreciation and amortization are consistent with the expected pattern of economic benefits that will be derived from the use of the fixed assets. 3.8

Investment properties Investment properties are stated at cost including transaction costs less accumulated depreciation. Subsequent expenditure relating to an investment property that has already been recognized is added to the net book value of the investment property when it is probable that future economic benefits, in excess of the originally assessed standard of performance of the existing investment property, will flow to the Group. Depreciation of investment properties is calculated on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful life of each asset as follows: Plant

13.5 years

Investment properties are derecognised when either they have been disposed of or when the investment properties are permanently withdrawn from use and no future economic benefit is expected from its disposal. The difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the assets is recognised in the consolidated income statement in the period of retirement or disposal. Transfers are made to investment properties when, and only when, there is a change in use, evidenced by ending of owner-occupation, commencement of an operating lease to another party or ending of construction or development. Transfers are made from investment properties when, and only when, there is change in use, evidenced by commencement of owner-occupation or commencement of development with a view to sale.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

3.12 Business combination and goodwill Business combinations are accounted for using the purchase method. The cost of an acquisition is measured as the fair value of the assets given, equity instruments issued and liabilities incurred or assumed at the date of exchange, plus costs directly attributable to the acquisition. Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilities assumed in a business combination are measured initially at fair values at the date of business combination. Goodwill is initially measured at cost being the excess of the cost of the business combination over the Group’s share in the net fair value of the acquiree’s identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities. If the cost of acquisition is less than the fair value of the net assets of the subsidiary acquired, the difference is recognised directly in the consolidated income statement. After initial recognition, goodwill is measured at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization of goodwill is calculated on a straight-line basis over ten (10) years during which the source embodying economic benefits are recovered by the Group. 3.13 Investment in associates The Group’s investment in its associates is accounted for using the equity method of accounting. An associate is an entity in which the Group has significant influence and which is neither a subsidiary nor a joint venture. The Group generally deems they have significant influence if they have over 20% of the voting rights. Under the equity method, the investment is carried in the consolidated balance sheet at cost plus post acquisition changes in the Group’s share of net assets of the associates. Goodwill arising on acquisition of the associate is included in the carrying amount of the investment and is amortized over a 10-year period. The consolidated income statement reflects the share of the post-acquisition results of operation of the associate. The share of post-acquisition profit (loss) of the associates is presented on the face of the consolidated income statement and its share of post-acquisition movements in reserves is recognised in reserves. The cumulative postacquisition movements are adjusted against the carrying amount of the investment. Dividend or profit sharing received or receivable from associates reduce the carrying amount of the investment. The financial statements of the associates are prepared for the same reporting year and use the same accounting policies as the Group. Where necessary, adjustments are made to bring the accounting policies in line with those of the Group. 3.14 Investment in jointly controlled entity The Group’s investment in jointly controlled entity is accounted for using the equity method of accounting. Under the equity method, the investment is carried in the consolidated balance sheet at cost plus post joint venture changes in the Group’s share of net assets of the jointly controlled entity. The consolidated income statement reflects the share of the post-acquisition results of operation of the jointly controlled entity. The share of profit (loss) of the jointly controlled entity is presented on face of the consolidated income statement and its share of post-acquisition movements in reserves is recognised in reserves. The cumulative post-acquisition movements are adjusted against the carrying amount of the investment. Dividend or profit sharing received or receivable from jointly controlled entities reduces the carrying amount of the investment. The financial statements of the jointly controlled entities are prepared for the same reporting year and use the same accounting policies as the Group. Where necessary, adjustments are made to bring the accounting policies in line with those of the Group.

Increases and decreases to the provision balance are recorded as finance expense in the consolidated income statement. 3.16 Payables and accruals Payables and accruals are recognised for amounts to be paid in the future for goods and services received, whether or not billed to the Group. 3.17 Accrual for severance pay The severance pay to employee is accrued at the end of each reporting year for all employees who have been being in service up to 31 December 2008 at the rate of one-half of the average monthly salary for each year of service up to 31 December 2008 in accordance with the Labour Code, the Law on Social Insurance and related implementing guidance. The average monthly salary used in this calculation will be revised at the end of each reporting year following the average monthly salary of the 6-month period up to the reporting date. Any increase to the accrued amount will be taken to the consolidated income statement. This accrued severance pay is used to settle the termination allowance to be paid to employee upon termination of their labor contracts following Article 48 of the Labour Code. 3.18 Foreign currency transactions Transactions in currencies other than the Group’s reporting currency of VND are recorded at the exchange rates ruling at the date of the transaction. At the end of the year, monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated at buying exchange rate announced by the commercial bank where the   Group maintains bank accounts ruling at the balance sheet date. All realized and unrealized foreign exchange differences are taken to the consolidated income statement. 3.19 Treasury shares Own equity instruments which are reacquired by the Group (treasury shares) are recognised at cost and deducted from equity. No gain or loss is recognised in profit or loss upon purchase, sale, re-issue or cancellation of the Group’s own equity instruments. 3.20 Earnings per share Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net profit after tax for the year attributable to ordinary shareholders by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the year, where applicable. Diluted earnings per share amounts are calculated by dividing the net profit after tax attributable to ordinary equity holders of the Company (after adjusting for interest on the convertible preference shares) by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the year plus the weighted average number of ordinary shares that would be issued on conversion of all potential dilutive ordinary shares into ordinary shares. 3.21 Segment information A segment is a component determined separately by the Group which is engaged in providing products or related services (business segment) or providing products or services in a particular economic environment (geographical segment), that is subject to risks and returns that are different from those of other segments.

Bonus and welfare fund This fund is set aside for the purpose of pecuniary rewarding and encouragement, common benefits and improvement of the employees’ benefits, and presented as a liability on the consolidated balance sheet. Dividends Final dividends proposed by the Board of Directors are classified as a separate allocation of undistributed earnings within the equity section of the consolidated balance sheet, until they have been approved by the shareholders at the Annual General Meeting. When these dividends have been approved by the shareholders and declared, they are recognised as a liability in the consolidated balance sheet. 3.23 Revenue recognition Revenue is recognised to the extent that it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Group and the revenue can be reliably measured.

3.24 Taxation Current income tax Current income tax assets and liabilities for current and prior years are measured at the amount expected to be recovered from or paid to the taxation authorities. The tax rates and tax laws used to compute the amount are those that are enacted by the balance sheet date. Current income tax is charged or credited to the consolidated income statement, except when it relates to items recognised directly to equity, in which case it is also dealt with in the equity account. Current income tax assets and liabilities are offset when there is a legally enforceable right for the Group to set off current tax assets against current tax liabilities and when the Group intends to settle its current tax assets and liabilities on a net basis. Deferred tax Deferred tax is provided using the balance sheet liability method on temporary differences at the balance sheet date between the tax base of assets and liabilities and their carrying amount for financial reporting purpose. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all taxable temporary differences, except: »»

in respect of deductible temporary differences associated with investments in subsidiaries and associates, and interests in joint ventures, deferred tax assets are recognised only to the extent that it is probable that the temporary difference will reverse in the foreseeable future and taxable profits will be available against which the temporary differences can be utilised.

The carrying amount of deferred tax assets is reviewed at each balance sheet date and reduced to the extent that it is no longer probable that sufficient taxable profit will be available to allow all or part of deferred tax asset to be utilised. Previously unrecognised deferred tax assets are re-assessed at each balance sheet date and are recognised to the extent that it has become probable that future taxable profit will allow the deferred tax assets to be recovered. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in the period when the asset is realized or the liability is settled based on tax rates and tax laws that have been enacted at the balance sheet date. Deferred tax is charged or credited to the consolidated income statement, except when it relates to items recognised directly to equity, in which case it is also dealt with in the equity account.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

3.24 Taxation (continued) Deferred tax (continued) Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset when there is a legally enforceable right for the Group to set off current tax assets against current tax liabilities and when they relate to income taxes levied by the same taxation authority on either the same taxable entity or when the Group intends to either settle current tax liabilities and assets on a net basis or to realize the assets and settle the liabilities simultaneously, in each future period in which significant amounts of deferred tax liabilities or assets are expected to be settled or recovered. 3.25 Financial instruments Initial recognition and presentation Financial assets Financial assets within the scope of Circular No. 210 /2009/TT-BTC dated 6 November 2009 issued by the Ministry of Finance providing guidance for the adoption in Vietnam of the International Financial Reporting Standards on presentation and disclosures of financial instruments (“Circular 210”) are classified, for disclosures in the notes to the separate financial statements, as financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, held-to-maturity investments, loans and receivables or available-for-sale financial assets as appropriate. The Group determines the classification of its financial assets at initial recognition. All financial assets are recognised initially at cost plus directly attributable transaction costs. The Group’s financial assets include cash and short-term deposits, trade and other receivables, loan receivables and short-term and long-term investments. Financial liabilities Financial liabilities within the scope of Circular 210 are classified, for disclosures in the notes to the consolidated financial statements, as financial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss or financial liabilities measured at amortized cost as appropriate. The Group determines the classification of its financial liabilities at initial recognition. All financial liabilities are recognised initially at cost, net of directly attributable transaction costs. The Group’s financial liabilities include trade and other payables and loans. Subsequent re-measurement No subsequent re-measurement of financial instruments is currently required. Offsetting of financial instruments Financial assets and financial liabilities are offset and the net amount reported in the consolidated balance sheet if, and only if, there is a currently enforceable legal right to offset the recognised amounts and there is an intention to settle on a net basis, or to realize the assets and settle the liabilities simultaneously.

CORPORATE INCOME TAX The Company and its subsidiaries, except for KDBD, have the obligation to pay corporate income tax (“CIT”) at the rate of 22% of taxable profits (2013: 25%). KDBD has the obligation to pay the CIT at the rate of 15% of taxable profits for twelve (12) years from commencement of its operations, and 25% for the years thereafter. KDBD is entitled to an exemption from CIT for three (3) years commencing from the first year of earning profits (year 2008) and a 50% reduction from CIT for the following seven (7) years. The tax returns filed by the Company and its subsidiaries are subject to examination by the tax authorities. Because the application of tax laws and regulations to many types of transactions is susceptible to varying interpretations, amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements could change at a later date upon final determination by the tax authorities.

28.2 Current tax The current CIT payable is based on taxable profit for the current year. Taxable profit differs from profit as reported in the consolidated income statement because it excludes items of income or expense that are taxable or deductible in other years and it further excludes items that are not taxable or deductible. The Group’s liability for current tax is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted by the balance sheet date.

FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES The Group’s principal financial liabilities comprise loans and debts, trade and other payables. The main purpose of these financial liabilities is to finance the Group’s operations. The Group has loans, receivables, trade and other receivables, and cash and short-term deposits that arise directly from its operations. The Group does not hold or issue derivative financial instruments. The Group is exposed to market risk, credit risk and liquidity risk. Risk management is integral to the whole business of the Group. The Group has a system of controls in place to create an acceptable balance between the cost of risks occurring and the cost of managing the risks. The management continually monitors the Group’s risk management process to ensure that an appropriate balance between risk and control is achieved. Management reviews and agrees on the policies for managing each of these risks which are summarized below: Market risk Market risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Market prices comprise four types of risk: interest rate risk, currency risk, commodity price risk and other price risk, such as equity price risk. Financial instruments affected by market risk include loans and borrowings, deposits and investments. The sensitivity analyses in the following sections relate to the Group’s consolidated financial position as at the balance sheet date. The sensitivity analyses have been prepared on the basis that the amount of net debt, the ratio of fixed to floating interest rates of the debt and the proportion of financial instruments in foreign currencies are all constant. In calculating the sensitivity analyses, management assumed that the consolidated balance sheet relates to financial instruments and the sensitivity of the relevant income statement item is the effect of the assumed changes in respective market risks. This is based on the financial assets and financial liabilities held at the balance sheet date.

The Group is exposed to market risk for changes in interest rate relates primarily to the Group’s short-term investments including cash and short-term deposits and its loans. The Group manages interest rate risk by looking at the competitive structure of the market to obtain rates which are favourable for its purposes within its risk management limits. Interest rate sensitivity With all other variables held constant, the following table demonstrates the sensitivity to a reasonably possible change in interest rates on that portion of loans and deposits and its effect to the Group’s profit before tax: Increase/decrease in basis points

The assumed movement in basis points for interest rate sensitivity analysis is based on the currently observable market environment. Foreign currency risk Foreign currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates. The Group is exposed to the risk of changes in foreign exchange rates relates primarily to the Group’s operating activities. The Group is not exposed to foreign currency risk as most of the Group’s operating activities, which are relating to purchases and sales of goods, are denominated in VND, the Group’s accounting currency. The Group does not employ any derivative financial instruments to hedge its foreign currency exposure. Equity price risk The Group’s listed and unlisted equity securities are susceptible to market price risk arising from uncertainty about future values of the investment securities. The Group manages equity price risk by placing a limit on equity investments. The Group’s Board of Directors reviews and approves all equity investment decisions. At the balance sheet date, the Group is not exposed to significant equity securities price risk. ANNUAL REPORT 2014

FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES (continued) Commodity price risk The Group is exposed to commodity price risk in relation to purchase of certain commodities. The Group manages its commodity price risk by keeping close watch on relevant information and situation of commodity market in order to properly manage timing of purchases, production plans and inventories level. The Group does not employ any derivative financial instruments to hedge its commodity price risk. Credit risk Credit risk is the risk that counterparty will not meet its obligations under a financial instrument or customer contract, leading to a financial loss. The Group is exposed to credit risk from its operating activities (primarily for trade receivables) and from its financing activities, including deposits with banks, short-term investments and other financial instruments. Trade receivables Customer credit risk is managed by the Group based on its established policy, procedures and control to minimise credit risk at an acceptable level. In view of the aforementioned and the fact that the Group’s trade receivables relate to a large number of diversified customers, management evaluates that there is no significant concentration of credit risk. Bank deposits The Group’s bank balances are mainly maintained with well-known banks in Vietnam. Credit risk from balances with banks is managed by the Group’s treasury department in accordance with its policy. The Group’s maximum exposure to credit risk for the components of the consolidated balance sheet at each reporting dates are the carrying amounts. Management evaluates the concentration of credit risk in respect to bank deposit as low.
