CHAIRMAN’S STATEMENT

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Patimas Computers Berhad (“Patimas” or “the Company”) I present to you the Annual Report and the Audited Financial Statements of Patimas Group for the 15 month period ended 31 March 2012.

Highlights

Patimas is facing a trying time with the unresolved significant accounting and audit findings/queries (“Significant Audit Findings”) in the accounts of the Patimas Group that were recently brought to the our attention when the external auditors expressed concerns that they have not been able to obtain sufficient competent audit evidence to form an opinion for the purpose of issuance of the audited financial statements.

In light of the discovery of Significant Audit Findings, the Company has on 30 July 2012 appointed PKF Advisory Sdn Bhd firm to conduct a special audit into the affairs of the Company (“special audit”) on the basis of information and records that are made available by the Board of Directors and from the Management of the Company. The Company's shares were suspended from trading on 31 July 2012 as the Board of Directors announced to Bursa on the same date that the Company was not able to issue its annual audited financial statements for period ended 31 March 2012 within the four months from the close of the financial period.

Subsequently, on 10 August 2012, Messrs BDO Governance Advisory Sdn Bhd was appointed to conduct the aforesaid special audit. The Board has also removed the financial functions and authorities of the Executive Directors whom shall no longer be responsible for the financial management of the Patimas Group. In order to protect the interest of all stakeholders, the Board has on 15 August 2012 appointed Mr. Jarnail Singh Daliwal as the Acting Group Chief Executive Officer with the sole authority to oversee the day to day affairs of the Group and other operational matters.

Further, following discussion with Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (“Bursa”), the Audit Committee was directed by Bursa to appoint an investigative auditor to conduct an investigative audit on the financial affairs of Patimas. We have on 16 October 2012 appointed UHY Advisory (KL) Sdn Bhd as the audit firm to carry out the new investigative audit.

Pursuant to paragraph 8.04(3)(b) of the LR in relation to Practice Note 17, the Company has on 1 November 2012 made the First Announcement to Bursa as a PN17 Company, the prescribed criteria of which was triggered by its negative net tangible assets position as well as the expressed disclaimer of opinion by the external auditors on the Company’s latest audited financial statements. In the First Announcement, the Company has indicated the status of its endeavours to formulate a regularization plan to regularize the Group’s financial condition.

(12)

Prospects

The Board is in the process of evaluating the prospects of the Group in light of the investigative audit, the PN 17 status of the Group and the stiff competition prevailing in both Malaysia and overseas ICT market.

At this point in time, the Board is unable to comment on the prospects of the Group, save for the data centre business division and the telecommunication business division which, in the opinion of the Board, can still be profitable with proper and efficient management.

Amid a severe setback against our business performance, our main task ahead is to strive harder and emerge as a stronger business entity. Immediate emphasis is on the need for the Group to seek new revenue streams whilst improving the existing businesses.

The Board is mindful of the challenges facing the Group and is working diligently to improve its performance.

Appreciation

On behalf of the Board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our valued shareholders, business partners, customers, bankers and regulatory authorities and the employees for your continuous support to the Group during these challenging times.

We wish to also record our appreciation to the past directors, En Aziz Yazdani, Mr Wong Ngai Peow and Mr. Hwang Seak Wai who have resigned recently. My appreciation also goes to my fellow Board members for their invaluable guidance and advice.

Dato’ Bahari bin Haron

In the process of preparing these financial statements, and other than as disclosed in the notes to the financial statements, the Directors have reviewed the accounting policies and practices. However, due to the circumstances that have been brought to the attention of the Board after the financial year ended 31 March 2012 and pending the completion of the investigative audit into the financial affairs of the Group and the Company, the Directors are not in a position to determine whether the accounting policies and practices were consistently applied throughout the year, and in cases where judgment and estimates were made, whether they were reasonable and prudent.

Additionally, although the Directors have relied on the system of internal controls to ensure that the information generated for the preparation of the financial statements from the underlying accounting records is accurate and reliable, in view of the investigative audit, the Directors are unable to form an opinion on the accuracy and reliability of such information at this point in time.

Below is the reconciliation on the Net Loss of the Unaudited 5th Quarter Results and the AFS for the financial period ended 31 March 2012:

The above audited results have to be read in conjunction with the full set of the Audited Financial Statements for the financial period ended 31 March 2012.

Explanatory notes:

(a) & (b) The Company decided to reverse the above mentioned revenue and cost because the external auditors were unable to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence to satisfy themselves as to the veracity of the related sale and purchase transactions with a group of customers and suppliers.

(c) The Company has on prudent basis made a further provision for doubtful debts as their recoverability are in doubt.

(22)

(e) Due to the reversal of revenue mentioned in (a) above, it has rendered significant uncertainty on the group's future revenue projection and hence the entire goodwill is impaired.

(f) This cost has been accrued as it relates to financial period ended 31 March 2012.

Further, in view of the developments in significant accounting and audit findings, and pending the completion of the investigative audit, an opinion cannot be formed at this juncture whether adjustments are necessary to the audited results for the financial period ended 31 March 2012 and hence if there will be any material variation against the said audited results.

STATEMENT ON INTERNAL CONTROL

Introduction

The Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance stipulates that the Board of Directors of listed companies should maintain a sound system of internal control to safeguard shareholders’ investments and Group assets. Paragraph 15.26 (b) of the Bursa Securities Listing Requirements requires directors of listed companies to include a statement in annual reports on the state of their internal controls. The Board’s Statement on Internal Control has been prepared in accordance with the provisions mentioned in the Code.

Responsibility

The Board recognises that it is responsible for the Group's system of internal control and for reviewing its effectiveness whilst the role of management is to implement Board policies on risk and control. The Board is committed to effective risk management practices, as it understands that such practices are essential in the maintenance of a sound system of internal control. However, it is recognised that the system of internal control can only provide reasonable assurance and not absolute assurance against any material loss occurrence.

Risk Management Framework

The Group Risk Management Committee (“GRMC”) was established to coordinate the implementation of an enterprise-wide risk management programme for the Group. The objective is to formalise the identification of principal risks affecting the achievement of the Group's business objectives and allow for a more structured and focused approach in managing the Group's significant business risks and enable the Group to effectively adopt a risk-based internal control system that is embedded within the Group.

The GRMC’s terms of reference are as follows:

• Coordinate with relevant business units to identify key risk exposures of the Group;

• Compile key risk profile and ensure the risk control systems are in place to manage such risks; and

• Prepare Group risk management reports with recommendations to improve the current risk management system to further strengthen the integrity of the internal control mechanism.

Enterprise-wide risk management is an on-going process to ensure a more coordinated and consistent approach in managing the Group’s significant risk exposures. The risk management programme is subject to regular reviews by the Board of Directors.

Other key elements of internal control

The following are other key elements of the Group’s internal control systems:

¾ Clear organisation structure with defined reporting lines as well as delegation of responsibilities to the Board Committees and Management including terms of reference, organisation structures and delegation of authority.

(29)

¾ Detailed budgeting process requiring all subsidiaries to prepare budgets annually, which are reviewed by the Managing Director and approved by the Board.

¾ Group Standard Operating Procedures which are subjected to regular review and update.

¾ All major decisions require the approval of the Board and are only made after appropriate in-depth analysis. The Board meets regularly on a quarterly basis, and receives operations and corporate development reports of the Group.

¾ Regular Management meetings attended by heads of subsidiaries and senior management and chaired by the Managing Director to assess the Group’s performance. ¾ The Management oversees the day-to-day operations and conduct of the Group's

businesses. Scheduled meetings are held at operational and management levels to identify; discuss and resolve business and operational issues. Management reports are escalated to the relevant Executive Directors on a timely basis.

The Audit Committee is assisted by an outsourced internal auditing firm to review, amongst others, the operational controls, risk management, compliance with laws and regulations and management efficiencies. There are processes for monitoring the system of internal control and reporting any significant weaknesses together with details of corrective actions. The system is subject to continuous review from the Board of Directors, Management and Internal Auditor. Responsibility for monitoring compliance with policies and guidelines rests with the Group’s Management and is facilitated by the internal auditor, which reports directly to the Audit Committee.

The outsourced internal auditor would also perform regular review of business processes to assess the effectiveness of internal controls and will highlight significant risks that will adversely impact the Group. The internal audit report and management’s responses are circulated to all members of the Audit Committee. Each subsidiary has clear responsibility for ensuring that appropriate control procedures are in place.

The external auditors provide assurance in the form of their annual statutory audit of the financial statements of the Group. Any areas for improvement identified during the course of the statutory audit by the external auditors are brought to the attention of the Audit Committee through management letters, if any or are articulated at Audit Committee meetings. In addition, the Audit Committee receives reports from the internal auditors on a regular basis and the external auditors on an annual basis.

The Board is of the view that there would be a need to review the effectiveness of the internal audit function to ensure that appropriate action is taken to enhance and strengthen the internal control environment. For this purpose, the Board intends to review in detail the functional capabilities and/or effectiveness of the existing internal auditor and to carry out detailed review of prevailing internal controls.

The Board recognises that the Group operates in a dynamic business environment and that the Group's internal control system must be responsive to changes in the business environment and continuously evolves to support its business objectives. The Board remains committed towards continuous improvement and enhancement of its system of internal control and will,
