Annual Report 2007

Chairman's Message

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to present the Annual Report and Audited Financial Statements of Wah Seong Corporation Berhad ("WSC") for the financial year ended 31 December 2007.

Performance for the Year 2007 The Group registered a commendable 20.1% revenue growth to a record level of RM1.95 billion for the financial year ended 31 December 2007 as compared to RM1.62 billion recorded in 2006. The Group's net profit rose 130.0% to RM86.0 million against RM37.4 million earned in 2006. However, it is appropriate to note that the Group's net profit of RM37.4 million for the financial year 2006 included an impairment of goodwill and other assets totaling RM29.4 million in line with the adoption of the new Financial Reporting Standards effective from 1 January 2006. Thus, on a comparable basis, the Group's net profit actually grew by 28.7% in 2007, which is still higher than the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 25.0% per annum set in the Group's Growth Strategy to transform itself into a Global Oil and Gas / Energy Group by 2012. Ongoing consolidation, rationalization and near completion of internal restructuring of the Group's companies, as highlighted in my 2006 Report, have started to bear positive operating results in 2007 and beyond. Improvement in operating margin in the EPC, Fabrication and Rental of Gas Compressors and Process Equipment Business Unit, as well as higher regional demand for infrastructural products, also contributed to the higher level of profitability in 2007. To meet the insatiable global demand for energy, WSC Group's Oil & Gas Division had increased its capital expenditure and strengthened its investment in human capital, both locally and abroad. New production lines and plants are being constructed or will be acquired / constructed in order to prepare for the Group's involvement in deepwater pipe coating technology too. As for the Group's Industrial Services Division, its Infrastructure Business Unit, led by PPI Industries Sdn Bhd has made inroads abroad and has applied the "polyurethane" lining for its water pipes manufactured in Penang and destined for use in Singapore and other overseas markets. WSC has and will continually explore business opportunities and avenues for sustainable growth in order to enhance its shareholders' value at all times. WSC Group shall continue to evolve and transform itself into a leading global energy player. Operational and strategic measures are constantly taken to ensure that WSC Group's finances are kept fundamentally strong and prepared for the changes and challenges that each year may hold. The Board and Management of WSC Group is continually guided by the best practices of integrity management and imparting good corporate governance values as its foremost corporate culture and belief. Outlook for the Year 2008 Market outlook for the year 2008 continues to look bright and promising as global demand for energy and oil services remain robust. However, the current "sub-prime" credit crunch affecting the financial sector and the escalating global inflation resulted from unprecedented high energy and commodity prices, may precipitate a major global economic slowdown or in a worst scenario "stagflation" in the future. However, with the successful completion of WSC's rights issue, disposal of non-core and loss-making assets/businesses, on-going consolidation and rationalization, and the various pre-emptive measures in place, I am confident that the Group will be well-positioned to meet the challenges ahead. Dividend In line with the aim of rewarding its shareholders the Board paid out a cumulative gross dividend of 12% comprising 4% gross less 27% Malaysian Income Tax on 10 October 2007 and 8% gross less 26% Malaysian Income Tax on 23 April 2008. Acknowledgement On behalf of the Board of Directors, I extend my deep appreciation to all staff and the Management team for their continued drive, hard work, dedication and commitment. My heartfelt and sincere thanks to all our shareholders, clients, business associates, suppliers, financiers, consultants and government authorities and agencies for their continued support and confidence shown towards us throughout these years. Robert Tan Chung Meng Non-Executive Chairman

Annual Report 2007

Managing Director/ Group Chief Executive Officer's Statement

Dear Shareholders and Associates, Wah Seong Corporation Berhad (WSC) had another successful year in 2007. Overall, the Group achieved commendable profits growth and results consequent to favourable performances by both the Group's Oil & Gas Division (O&GD) and the Industrial Services Division (ISD). I am honored to once again, present my yearly review of the operations of WSC for the financial year ended 31 December 2007.

In line with our overall objective of continually improving our financial performance and operational efficiency, as well as enhancing our shareholders' value, I would like to highlight some key programs and measures undertaken during the year:(a) Near completion of the Group's internal restructuring, which involved the formation of Wasco Energy Ltd (WascoE) to hold and spearhead the growth of the entire Group's oil and gas investment and business operations in the O&GD, whilst the non-oil and gas businesses comprising Infrastructure / Building Materials and Agro-based Engineering are grouped under the renamed ISD. On-going consolidation, rationalization and integration (including cultural integration) of all businesses following the substantial number of mergers and acquisitions undertaken in year 2004 / 2005 and culminating from the above internal restructuring exercises. In this regard, non-core and / or loss making assets / businesses will (if any) be constantly reviewed on its performance sustainability and to be disposed of to improve the Group's return on assets and performance. Additional resources are being allocated to key high-growth core business units centered mainly upon our engineering fabrication and rental of gas compression as well as our pipe coating and corrosion protection businesses. Strengthening of Financial Position Effective cost control at all fronts continues to be applied especially in the context of fast escalating costs which are affecting the entire oil and gas industry. It is the Group's policy to hedge, wherever possible, all procurement and material costs associated with all contracts / projects awarded. Optimizing our global financial operations to minimize the Group's financing cost and maximize return on surplus funds. More importantly, a prudent and effective Foreign Currency Exposure Management System has been established to manage the Group's exposure against major foreign currency volatility arising from our global operations. The Group has successfully raised about RM202.1 million from its recently concluded capital fund raising exercise. A total of 90.6 million rights issue @ RM2.23 per share together with 136.0 million new free detachable five-year warrants were issued and allotted. The overall capitalization exercise together with the disposal of an industrial property, completed and raised a total cash injection of RM261.1 million in end of March 2008, has significantly strengthened the Group's balance sheet and provides the necessary funds to further expand the Group's fast growing gas compression, pipe coating / corrosion protection businesses as well as the establishment of a new steel pipe mill in Sabah for the Kimanis / Bintulu Pipeline Project while keeping our overall gearing at a comfortable level.

Having established the above programs and measures, the Group will be better positioned to face future challenges, including the imminent major global economic slowdown. At the same time, the Group is also poised to undertake any viable or major mergers and acquisitions in the near future with its ready war chest. I would also like to extend a warm welcome to the four new members of the WSC family, namely:(1) Turn Key Pipeline Services BV (TKPS) ­ an engineering and machinery company providing pipe coating services to the Oil & Gas industry based in Netherlands; (2) Wasco Coatings Denmark ApS (WCD) ­ a specialist in pipe coating facilities and related services to the Oil & Gas industry based in Denmark; (3) Petro-Pipe Sabah Sdn Bhd (PPS) ­ a manufacturer and supplier / provider of steel pipes and coatings thereto based in Sabah; and (4) PT MPE Deepwater ­ an extension of our Material Performance Engineering Group based in Indonesia to manufacture offshore aluminium and zinc anodes and provide corrosion control materials and services. We are confident that they will contribute positively towards the future growth of the Group.

Annual Report 2007

Managing Director/ Group Chief Executive Officer's Statement (Cont'd)

Overall Financial Review The Group registered revenue of RM1,950.1 million for the financial year ended 31 December 2007, representing an increase of 20.1% compared with RM1,624.3 million recorded in 2006. The increase is attributed to higher performance in the EPC, Fabrication and Rental of Gas Compressors and Process Equipment business unit as well as in the Infrastructure and Agro-based Engineering business units of the ISD. Corresponding to the increase in revenue, the Group also registered a 42.2% improvement in Earnings before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) to RM184.7 million from RM129.9 million achieved in 2006. The Group's pre-tax profit registered an increase of 60.8% to RM115.1 million compared to RM71.6 million recorded in 2006 mainly due to internal growth derived from new and existing subsidiaries, which generally reflect the positive benefits from synergistic mergers and acquisitions made in year 2004 / 2005. The Group's net profit attributable to the WSC shareholders rose 130.0% to RM86.0 million against RM37.4 million earned in 2006. However, it should be noted that the Group's net profit of RM37.4 million for the financial year 2006 included an impairment of goodwill and other assets totaling RM29.4 million in line with the adoption of the new Financial Reporting Standards which came into effect on 1 January 2006. Thus, on a comparable basis, the Group's net profit grew by 28.7% in 2007, which is higher than the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 25% per annum set in the Group's Growth Strategy to transform itself into a Global Oil & Gas / Energy Group by 2012. Oil & Gas Division ("O&GD") The Revenue achieved by this O&GD for year 2007 was RM1.22 billion. This represents an increase of 20.5% over that in 2006 and accounted for about 63.0% of the Group's total Turnover in 2007. The Group's specialized pipe coating and corrosion protection business unit performed satisfactorily during the year. The plans to expand geographically, in particular Europe, especially for the pipe coating business are taking shape with the acquisition of pipe coating and engineering machinery companies e.g. TKPS and WCD. PPS had recently secured a RM390 million contract for the manufacturing, coating, delivery and storage of pipes for the Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline Project (SSGP) with Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd. The Group is further negotiating to form a strategic alliance with Sabah state agencies to undertake pipe manufacturing and pipe coating of the SSGP. As new areas of exploration are discovered and the need to meet surging demand for deepwater pipe coating increases, the Group has readily invested with its state-of-the-art deepwater flow assurance coating facility as located in Kuantan, Malaysia to take on these challenges and new opportunities created. Works on the facility costing RM75.0 million, is expected to be operational by 3rd Quarter 2008. This investment will allow the Group to play a bigger role in the pipe coating market which is one of the Group's largest revenue earners. With over 60% of the Group's businesses being derived overseas, WSC also plans to tap into the Malaysian market for pipe coating and gas compression opportunities. Currently, in Malaysia alone, nine deepwater fields have been identified for commercial operations from the present time to 2013. Further studies reveal that there are 10 new "open" deepwater blocks in Malaysia, which presents a potential for deepwater pipe coating market requirements. The Group's engineering business unit proves to be a star performer for the year 2007. The Group plans to further grow its rental operation and maintenance business, by adding rental capacity of between 10,000 ­ 15,000 horsepower per annum over the next five years. Of the total RM261.1 million raised from the rights issue, Employees Share Option Scheme and disposal of industrial property, approximately RM85.0 million will be allocated for the purchase of a rental fleet of gas compressors by June 2008. This will be in addition to the annual planned increase in rental capacity of some 10,000 - 15,000 horsepower. Importance has also been placed especially on design, engineering along with operations and maintenance (O&M) capabilities for the business. The Group's pipeline contracting business has taken a positive turn with the recent award of a RM147.0 million pipeline contract in Australia. Although it had incurred a loss in 2007, the Group anticipates this business to turn around and to return to profitability in the coming year. Whilst Asia continues to provide excellent growth opportunities for the Group due to increasing energy demand in the future, greater focus will be placed to develop new markets in Central Asia, Middle East and Europe including Russia. Industrial Services Division ("ISD") Revenue from the ISD grew 19.2% to RM715.6 million versus RM600.2 million in 2006. EBITDA showed an increase of 26.8% to RM45.0 million during the same period compared to RM35.5 million in 2006. Consequently, the ISD recorded a 41.8% higher in profit before tax to RM37.3 million from RM26.3 million achieved in 2006.

Managing Director/ Group Chief Executive Officer's Statement (Cont'd)

Our pipe manufacturing business has been growing in tandem with the increase of infrastructure projects being built in the region. This bodes well for the Group and will be upgrading and increasing our capacities to meet our customers' needs. To enhance our competitive advantage, the Group has also ventured into new and innovative products such as polyurethane lining for water pipes which are far superior to traditional cement lined pipes. The Group also plans to seek new regional markets and embark on geographical expansion for our spiral welded steel pipes. The building materials business also did well in 2007, riding on the upturn in the building and construction sectors during the year. Efforts to focus on marketing new and innovative products over the previous years have started paying off, as our product mix improves over the same period. It was a good year for the agro-based business as palm oil prices continue to strengthen. To further broaden our earnings base in this sector, the Group will leverage on our strengths to tap on the potential business opportunities the industry has to offer, which includes environmental engineering. In this regard, a new growth strategy has been formulated to broaden this scope of business in the palm oil industry. Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) The Group is committed to the health, safety and welfare of all our employees, contractors, suppliers and visitors and to the protection of the environment. This commitment is espoused through our HSE policy statement, a copy of which can be found on page 3 of this Annual Report. Stated simply, our target is to provide an accidentfree workplace delivered through HSE Management systems which are centred on robust risk identification, assessment and control processes and that are regularly reviewed, continually improved and which integrate the highest international standards including OSHAS 18001 and ISO 14001. The group achieved another zero fatality year in 2007 and our successful HSE performance was recognized through awards garnered from several major customers. Human Resource In 2007, WSC made good progress in making further inroads with our new performance development programme (PDP). The Group had successfully implemented the system deeper into the overall organization and targets to get to a point where performance is planned, managed and evaluated on a consistent basis across all our businesses. We acknowledge that performance management would be a long term and continuous process and is committed to ensuring that sufficient priority is committed to set up and maintain the process. This shall be its springboard to driving performance from enterprise to individual level and will help to provide the focus required to spearhead other talent management initiatives. In recognition that what defines the Group is its culture, we strive to permeate its corporate values of "MPT" (Meritocracy with humanity, Professionalism and transparency, Teamwork minus politics) across its businesses and geographical boundaries. The Group continues to invest in building a conducive work environment and a workforce that holds itself to high standards and treats individuals with respect. Recruitment and learning remain important areas of focus for the Group. We believe that bringing in the right level of competencies and skills, and continuously training and investing in the career development of current employees will underlie and drive its strategy of long term growth. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) WSC attempts to contribute to the definition of our society by aligning a balance between profitability and contribution to our community. Community, environment and workplace are important pillars to the WSC CSR program. Under the CSR program, WSC takes part in activities that involve the youth and the public as a whole under the auspices of Yayasan Wah Seong (YWS), the charitable arm of WSC. Through a charitable organization, YWS contributed towards the construction of a community centre for rest, recreation, continuing educational and healthcare activities for senior citizens and their contemporaries to fulfill their social needs and to provide support infrastructure. WSC aims to give and continue giving our strong and best support to build bridges of love between the very young and the aged / senior citizens; and between the orphans/ underprivileged and the infirmed; that cuts across all class, creed and community. YWS Scholarship Awards which commenced in 2008, is intended to be a continuous and long-term CSR program. The program not only serves as a platform to foster, develop and improve the education sector but to render

Managing Director/ Group Chief Executive Officer's Statement (Cont'd)

financial assistance to deserving young individuals. YWS has also committed to channel a percentage of their donations received in upgrading and building a home for children transmitted with HIV/AIDS. YWS has also recently contributed to victims of the recent cyclone disaster in Yangon, Myanmar and earthquake disaster in Sichuan, China. The major thrust under these social responsibility programs is to bring a value proposition to the lives of those in the community and the nation in general. Here, the Group seeks to alleviate the hardship faced by the less fortunate, the needy and the marginalized. More CSR initiatives undertaken by the Group can be further viewed under the Corporate Social Responsibility Statement on page 41 of this Annual Report. Outlook for the Year 2008 The outlook for the year 2008 appears promising especially for the global oil and gas industry. Industry studies on the fundamentals of supply and demand for oil and gas suggest that crude oil prices are likely to remain high over the next few years. Whilst the industry remains under invested, the unprecedented high oil prices will add further impetus in the oil and gas exploration and production expenditure. We expect increasing and accelerating activities in deepwater exploration in Malaysia and worldwide. A significant number of new and replacement pipelines are coming on-stream for development and construction in Malaysia, Asia, Central Asia and Europe over the next five years which augurs well for WSC's pipe coating and other related businesses. Upon completion, our new deepwater pipe coating facility in Kuantan and pipe mill in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah will be well positioned to benefit from these favourable developments. The future for natural gas is tremendous for a number of reasons. In the first place, the global reserve of natural gas far exceeds that of crude oil. Natural gas is also a cleaner and cheaper option in terms of thermal energy equivalent of oil. It is in this context that our gas compression business, spearheaded by GSI, has a tremendous future, especially in Asia. In order to create a stable and recurring income base for the Group, WSC will invest more than RM140.0 million in 2008 / 2009 to expand GSI's rental fleet and capacity of gas compressors and its O&M business to meet the anticipated increase in the industry demand. The Industrial Services Division is expected to perform satisfactorily in FY2008, benefiting from new regional infrastructure projects and the robust palm oil prices. The local building and construction sectors however, will be under pressure because of rising costs of raw materials. This may dampen our building material business in the event of any slowdown in this sector. With the ongoing internal group restructuring, consolidation and rationalization exercises that were carried out over the last two years, and more importantly, with a stronger financial base, the Group is now well-positioned to undertake some major mergers and acquisitions in 2008 and beyond. Mergers and Acquisitions remain central to our "Growth Strategy" which is based on CAGR of 25% per annum. Recent economic indicators suggest that the global economy may be adversely affected by the prevailing subprime credit crunch and escalating inflation by continuing high energy and commodity prices. Whilst a global economic slowdown is generally expected, the risk of the world economy heading for "stagflation" cannot be ruled out. However, with all the pre-emptive measures being undertaken, we are confident that WSC will be wellpositioned to meet these challenges ahead and realize its vision of transforming itself into a Global Oil & Gas / Energy Group by 2012. Barring unforeseen circumstances, the Group can look forward to another successful year ahead driven by positive sentiments in the industry and improvements in the Company's fundamentals. Acknowledgment The continued success enjoyed by WSC would not have been achievable without the tremendous efforts, commitment and contributions at all times throughout the year from the management and staff of the Group. My heartfelt gratitude and appreciation must be extended to my esteemed board of Directors for their generous counsel and dedication through the years. Last but not least, my sincere thanks also reach out to all shareholders, client, suppliers, bankers, business associates, the investment community and regulatory authorities for their excellent support and cooperation.

OTHER STATUTORY INFORMATION (a) Before the income statements and balance sheets of the Group and of the Company were made out, the Directors took reasonable steps: (i) to ascertain the action taken in relation to the writing off of bad debts and the making of allowance for doubtful debts and satisfied themselves that all known bad debts had been written off and that adequate allowance had been made for doubtful debts; and to ensure that any current assets, other than debts, which were unlikely to realise in the ordinary course of business their values as shown in the accounting records of the Group and of the Company had been written down to an amount which they might be expected so to realise.

(ii)

(b)

At the date of this report, the Directors are not aware of any circumstances: (i) which would render the amounts written off for bad debts or the amount of the allowance for doubtful debts in the financial statements of the Group and of the Company inadequate to any substantial extent; or which would render the values attributed to the current assets in the financial statements of the Group and of the Company misleading; or which have arisen which render adherence to the existing method of valuation of assets or liabilities of the Group and of the Company misleading or inappropriate.

(ii)

(iii)

(c)

At the date of this report, there does not exist: (i) any charge on the assets of the Company or its subsidiaries which has arisen since the end of the financial year which secures the liabilities of any other person; or any contingent liability of the Company or its subsidiaries which has arisen since the end of the financial year other than those disclosed in the Note 48 to the financial statements.

(ii)

(d)

No contingent or other liability of the Company or its subsidiaries has become enforceable or is likely to become enforceable within the period of twelve months after the end of the financial year which, in the opinion of the Directors, will or may affect the ability of the Company or its subsidiaries to meet their obligations as and when they fall due. At the date of this report, the Directors are not aware of any circumstances, not otherwise dealt with in this report or the financial statements of the Group and of the Company which would render any amount stated in the respective financial statements misleading.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES The following accounting policies have been applied consistently to all the years presented in dealing with items which are considered material in relation to the financial statements, unless otherwise stated. 2.1 Basis of preparation The financial statements of the Group and of the Company have been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act, 1965 and Financial Reporting Standards, the MASB Approved Accounting Standards in Malaysia for Entities Other than Private Entities. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention unless otherwise indicated in this summary of significant accounting policies. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with the MASB Approved Accounting Standards in Malaysia for Entities Other than Private Entities requires the use of certain critical accounting estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. It also requires Directors to exercise their judgement in the process of applying the Company's accounting policies. Although these estimates and judgement are based on the Directors' best knowledge of current events and actions, actual results may differ from those estimates. The areas involving a higher degree of judgement or complexity, or areas where assumptions and estimates are significant to the financial statements, are disclosed in Note 3 to the financial statements.

2.3

Subsidiaries Subsidiaries are those corporations, partnerships or other entities (including special purpose entities) in which the Group has power to exercise control over the financial and operating policies so as to obtain benefits from their activities, generally accompanying a shareholding of more than one half of the voting rights. The existence and effect of potential voting rights that are currently exercisable or convertible are considered when assessing whether the Group controls another entity. Investments in subsidiaries are stated at cost less accumulated impairment losses. Where an indication of impairment exist, the carrying amount of the investment is assessed and written down immediately to its recoverable amount. See accounting policy 2.20 on impairment of assets. Subsidiaries are consolidated using the purchase method of accounting. Under the purchase method of accounting, subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date on which control is transferred to the Group and are de-consolidated from the date that control ceases. 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 their fair values at the date of acquisition, irrespective of the extent of any minority interest. The excess of the cost of acquisition over the fair value of the Group's share of the identifiable net assets acquired at the date of acquisition is reflected as goodwill ­ See accounting policy 2.13 (b) on goodwill. 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 income statement.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.3 Subsidiaries (Cont'd) Where more than one exchange transaction is involved, any adjustment to the fair values of the subsidiary's identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities relating to previously held interests of the Group is accounted for as a revaluation. Minority interest represent that portion of the profit or loss and net assets of a subsidiary attributable to equity interests that are not owned, directly or indirectly through subsidiaries, by the Company. It is measured at the minorities' share of the fair value of the subsidiaries' identifiable assets and liabilities at the date of acquisition and the minorities' share of changes in the subsidiaries' equity since that date. All inter-company transactions, balances and unrealised gains on transactions between group companies are eliminated. Unrealised losses are also eliminated but considered an impairment indicator of the asset transferred. Where necessary, adjustments are made to the financial statements of subsidiaries to ensure consistency of accounting policies with those of the Group. The gain or loss on disposal of a subsidiary, which is the difference between net disposal proceeds and the Group's share of its net assets as of the date of disposal, including the cumulative amount of any exchange differences that relate to the subsidiary, is recognised in the consolidated income statement. 2.4 Transactions with minority interests The Group applies a policy of treating transactions with minority interests as transactions with parties external to the Group. Disposals to minority interests result in gains and losses for the Group that are recorded in the income statement. Purchases from minority interests result in goodwill, being the difference between any consideration paid and the relevant share of the carrying value of net assets of the subsidiary acquired. 2.5 Associates An associate is an entity in which the Group has significant influence and that is neither a subsidiary nor an interest in a joint venture. Significant influence is the power to participate in the financial and operating policy decisions of the investee, but is not control or joint control over those policies. Investments in associates are stated at cost less accumulated impairment losses. Where an indication of impairment exists, the carrying amount of the investment is assessed and written down immediately to its recoverable amount. See accounting policy 2.20 on impairment of assets. On disposal, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the net carrying amount of the associate disposed of is taken to the income statement. Investment in associates is accounted for in the consolidated financial statements by the equity method of accounting. Under the equity method, the investment in associates are initially recognised at cost and adjusted thereafter for post-acquisition changes in the Group's share of net assets of the associates. The Group's share of the net profits or losses and changes directly in the equity of the associates are recognised in the consolidated income statement and consolidated statement of changes in equity respectively. An investment in an associate is accounted for using the equity method from the date on which the Group obtains significant influence until the date the Group ceases to have significant influence over the associate.

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2007 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.5 Associates (Cont'd) Goodwill relating to an associate is included in the carrying value of the investment and is not tested for impairment separately. Instead, the entire carrying amount of the investment is tested for impairment in accordance with accounting policy s in Note 2.20 below. Unrealised gains on transactions between the Group and its associates are eliminated to the extent of the Group's interest in the associates. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of impairment of the asset transferred. Where necessary, adjustments are made to the financial statements of associates to ensure consistency of accounting policies with those of the Group. Equity accounting is discontinued when the carrying amount of the investment in an associate diminishes by virtue of losses to zero, unless the Group has incurred legal or constructive obligations or made payments on behalf of the associate. For incremental interest in an associate, the date of acquisition is the purchase date at each stage and goodwill is calculated at each purchase date based on the fair value of assets and liabilities identified. There is no "step up to fair value" of net assets of the previously acquired stake and the share of profits and equity movements for the previously acquired stake is recorded directly through equity. 2.6 Joint ventures (a) Jointly controlled entities Jointly controlled entities are those corporations, partnerships or other entities over which there is contractually agreed sharing of control by the Group with one or more parties where the strategic financial and operating decisions relating to the entities require unanimous consent of the parties sharing control. The Group has interests in joint ventures which are jointly controlled entities. A joint venture is a contractual arrangement whereby two or more parties undertake an economic activity that is subject to joint control. Investments in jointly controlled entitles are accounted for in the consolidated financial statements by the equity method of accounting. Under the equity method, the investment in jointly controlled entities are initially recognised at cost and adjusted thereafter for post-acquisition changes in the Group's share of net assets of the jointly controlled entities. Unrealised gains on transactions between the Group and its jointly controlled entities are eliminated to the extent of the Group's interest in the jointly controlled entities. Unrealised losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of impairment of the asset transferred. Where necessary, adjustments have been made to the financial statements of jointly controlled entities to ensure consistency of accounting policies with those of the Group. Investments in jointly controlled entities are stated at cost less accumulated impairment losses. Where an indication of impairment exists, the carrying amount of the investment is assessed and written down immediately to its recoverable amount. See accounting policy 2.20 on impairment of assets. On disposal, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the jointly controlled entity disposed of is taken to the income statement.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.6 Joint ventures (Cont'd) (b) Jointly controlled operations A jointly controlled operation is a contractual agreement whereby the Group and other parties have joint control over an economic activity. In respect of its interest in jointly controlled operations, the Group recognises in its financial statements the assets that it controls and the liabilities that it incurs as well as the expenses that it incurs and its share of the income and expenses that it earns from the sale of goods or services by the joint venture. 2.7 Property, plant and equipment (a) Measurement basis Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses, if any. The cost of property, plant and equipment includes expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the assets. Dismantlement, removal or restoration costs are included as part of the cost of property, plant and equipment if the obligation for dismantlement, removal or restoration is incurred as a consequence of acquiring or using the asset. Subsequent costs are included in the asset's carrying amount when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the asset will flow to the Group and the Company and the cost of the asset can be measured reliably. The carrying amount of the replaced part is derecognised. All other repairs and maintenance are charged to the income statement during the financial year in which they are incurred. At each balance sheet date, the Group assesses whether there is any indication of impairment. Where an indication of impairment exists, the carrying value of the asset is assessed and written down immediately to its recoverable amount. See Note 2.20 on impairment of assets. Property, plant and equipment are derecognised upon disposal or when no future economic benefits are expected from their use. Gains and losses on disposals are determined by comparing proceeds with carrying amounts and are included in the income statement. (b) Depreciation Freehold land and capital work-in-progress are not depreciated. Depreciation is calculated to write off the depreciable amount of other property, plant and equipment on a straight line basis over their estimated useful lives. The depreciable amount is determined after deducting residual value from cost. The principal annual rates used for this purpose are: Buildings Plant and machinery, tools and equipment Electrical installations, office equipment and furniture and fittings Computer and software Renovation and store extension Motor vehicles 2% - 10% 6.67% - 50% 10% - 20% 10% - 20% 2% - 50% 20% - 33%

The residual values, useful lives and depreciation method are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at each balance sheet date.

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2007 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.8 Accounting as Lessee Finance leases Leases of property, plant and equipment where the Group assumes substantially all the benefits and risks of ownership are classified as finance leases. Finance leases are capitalised at the lower of the fair value of the leased assets or the estimated present value of the underlying lease payments at the date of inception. Each lease payment is allocated between the liability and finance charges so as to achieve a constant rate on the lease principal outstanding. The corresponding rental obligations, net of finance charges, are included in borrowings. The interest element of the finance charge is charged to the income statement over the lease period so as to produce a constant periodic rate of interest on the remaining balance of the liability for each period. Property, plant and equipment acquired under finance lease contracts is depreciated over the useful life of the asset. If there is no reasonable certainty that the ownership will be transferred to the Group, the asset is depreciated over the shorter of the lease term and its useful life. Operating leases Leases of assets where a significant portion of the risks and rewards of ownership are retained by the lessor are classified as operating leases. Payments made under operating leases are charged to the income statement over the lease period. 2.9 Other investments Other investments are stated at cost. An allowance for diminution in value is made if the Directors are of the opinion that there is a decline in the value of such investments which is other than temporary. The diminution in value is charged to the income statement. On disposal, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount of the investment disposed of is taken to the income statement. 2.10 Prepaid lease payments The Directors have applied the transitional provisions of FRS 117 "Leases" for the lease of land previously recognised as property, plant and equipment. Where the Group and the Company had previously classified a lease of land as finance lease and had recognised the amount of the prepaid lease rental as property within property, plant and equipment, the Group and the Company will treat the lease as an operating lease with the unamortised carrying amount being classified as prepaid lease rental. Leasehold land is amortised over the remaining period of the respective leases ranging from 3 to 99 years.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.11 Investment properties Investment properties are properties held to earn rental income or for capital appreciation or both rather than for use in the production or supply of goods and services or for administrative purposes, or sale in the ordinary course of business. (a) Measurement basis Investment properties are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses, if any. The cost of investment properties includes expenditure that is directly attributable to the acquisition of the asset. Subsequent costs are included in the asset's carrying amount when it is probable that future economic benefits associated with the asset will flow to the Group and the Company and the cost of the asset can be measured reliably. All other repairs and maintenance are charged to the income statement during the financial year in which they are incurred. Investment properties are derecognised upon disposal or when they are permanently withdrawn from use and no future economic benefits are expected from their disposal. On disposal, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount is recognised in the income statement. (b) Depreciation Freehold land is not depreciated. Depreciation is calculated to write off the depreciable amount of other investment properties on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives. Depreciation amount is determined after deducting the residual value from the cost of the investment property. The principal annual rates used for this purpose are: Freehold buildings 2%

The residual values, useful lives and depreciation methods are reviewed, and adjusted if appropriate, at each balance sheet date. 2.12 Non-current asset held for sale Non-current assets are classified as held for sale if the carrying amount will be recovered principally through a sale transaction rather than through continuing use. This condition is regarded as met only when the assets (or disposal group) are available for immediate sale in its present condition and the sale is highly probable subject only to terms that are usual and customary. On initial classification as held for sale, non-currents assets are measured at the lower of its carrying amount and fair value less costs to sell. Immediately before the initial classification of the assets as held for sale, the carrying amount of the assets (all the assets and liabilities of the disposal group) are measured in accordance with applicable FRSs. An impairment loss is recognised for any initial or subsequent write-down of the disposal group to fair value less costs to sell. Subsequent increase in fair value less costs to sell is recognised as a gain in the income to the extent of the cumulative impairment loss that has been recognised previously.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.13 Intangible assets (a) Technical knowhow Technical knowhow, are stated at cost less any accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment losses. The technical knowhow with finite lives are amortised on a straight line basis over their estimated useful life not exceeding 10 years whereas technical knowhow with indefinite lives are assessed for impairment annually. See Note 2.20 on impairment of assets. (b) Goodwill Goodwill represents the excess of the cost of acquisition of subsidiaries, jointly controlled entities and associates over the fair value of the Group's share of the identifiable net assets at the date of acquisition. See Note 2.20 on impairment of assets. Goodwill is tested annually for impairment and carried at cost less accumulated impairment losses. Impairment losses on goodwill are not reversed. Gains and losses on the disposal of an entity include the carrying amount of goodwill relating to the entity sold. Goodwill is allocated to cash-generating units for the purpose of impairment testing. The allocation is made to those cash-generating units or groups of cash-generating units that are expected to benefit from the synergies of the business combination in which the goodwill arose. See Note 2.20 on impairment of assets. Goodwill on acquisitions of jointly controlled entities and associates is included in investments in jointly controlled entities and associates respectively. Such goodwill is tested for impairment as part of the overall balance. (c) Intellectual property Expenditure on acquired intellectual property is capitalised and amortised using the straight line method over their estimated useful life, not exceeding a period of 20 years. 2.14 Inventories Inventories are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is determined on the first-in first-out basis. In the case of finished goods and work-in-progress, cost comprises materials, direct labour, other direct charges and an appropriate proportion of factory overheads. Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business less the estimated costs of completion and selling expenses. 2.15 Receivables Receivables are initially recognised at their costs when the contractual right to receive cash or another financial asset from another entity is established. Subsequent to initial recognition, receivables are stated at cost less allowance for doubtful debts. Known bad debts are written off and an allowance is made for any receivables considered to be doubtful of collection.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.16 Payables Payables are measured initially and subsequently at cost. Payables are recognised when there is a contractual obligation to deliver cash or another financial asset to another entity. 2.17 Provision (a) Warranties The Group recognises the estimated liability to repair or replace products when the underlying products or services are sold. The provision is calculated based on historical warranty data and weighting of all possible outcome against their associated probabilities. (b) Restructuring A provision for restructuring is recognised when the Group has approved a detailed and formal restructuring plan, and the restructuring has either commenced or has been announced publicly. Future operating costs are not provided for. 2.18 Share capital Ordinary shares are recorded at nominal value and proceeds received in excess of the nominal value of shares issued, if any, are accounted for as share premium. Both ordinary shares and share premium are classified as equity. Costs incurred directly attributable to the issuance of the shares are accounted for as a deduction from share premium, if any, otherwise it is charged to the income statement. Other shares are classified as equity and/or liability according to the economic substance of the particular instruments. Dividends to shareholders are recognised in equity in the period in which they are declared. Purchase of own shares When share capital recognised as equity is repurchased, the amount of the consideration paid, including directly attributable costs, is recognised as a deduction from equity. Repurchased shares that are not subsequently cancelled are classified as treasury shares and are presented as a deduction from total equity. 2.19 Borrowings Borrowings are initially recognised based on the proceeds received, net of transaction costs incurred. In subsequent periods, borrowings are stated at amortised cost using the straight line method; any difference between proceeds (net of transaction costs) and the redemption value is recognised in the income statement over the period of the borrowings. Borrowings are classified as current liabilities unless the Group has an unconditional right to defer settlement of the liability for at least 12 months at the balance sheet date.

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2007 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.20 Impairment of assets Assets that have an indefinite useful life are not subject to amortisation and are tested annually for impairment. Assets that are subject to amortisation are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. An impairment loss is recognised for the amount by which the carrying value of the asset exceeds its recoverable amount. The recoverable amount is the higher of an asset's fair value less costs to sell and value-in-use. For the purposes of assessing impairment, assets are grouped at the lowest level for which there are separately identifiable cash flows (cash-generating units). Non-financial assets, other than goodwill, that suffered impairment are reviewed for possible reversal of the impairment at each reporting date. The impairment loss is charged to the income statement unless it reverses a previous revaluation, in which case it is charged to the revaluation surplus. Impairment losses on goodwill are not reversed. In respect of other assets, any subsequent increase in recoverable amount is recognised in the income statement unless it reverses an impairment loss on a revalued asset, in which case it is taken to revaluation surplus. 2.21 Foreign currencies (a) Functional currency Functional currency is the currency of the primary economic environment in which an entity operates. The financial statements of each entity within the Group are measured using their respective functional currency. (b) Transactions and balances in foreign currencies Transactions in foreign currencies other than the functional currency ("Foreign currencies") are translated to the functional currency at the rate of exchange ruling at the date of the transaction. Monetary items denominated in foreign currencies at the balance sheet date are translated at the foreign exchange rates ruling at that date. Non-monetary items which are measured in terms of historical costs denominated in foreign currencies are translated at the foreign exchange rate ruling at the date of the transaction. Exchange differences arising on the settlement of monetary items and the translation of monetary items are included in the income statement for the period. When a gain or loss on a non-monetary item is recognised directly in equity, any corresponding exchange gain or loss is recognised directly in equity. When a gain or loss on a non-monetary item is recognised in the income statement, any corresponding exchange gain or loss is recognised in income statement.

Income and expense items are translated at exchange rates approximating those ruling on transactions dates. All exchange differences arising from the translation of the financial statements of foreign operations are dealt with through the exchange translation reserve account within equity. On the disposal of a foreign operation, the exchange translation differences relating to that foreign operations are recognised in the income statement as part of the gain or loss on disposal. Goodwill and fair value adjustments arising on the acquisition of foreign operations are treated as assets and liabilities of the foreign entity and translated at the closing rate. (b) Closing exchange rates The principal closing rate used in translation is as follows: 2007 RM One United Stated Dollar ("USD") 2.23 Revenue recognition Revenue is recognised when it is probable that economic benefits will flow to the Group and the Company and when they can be measured reliably, on the following bases: (a) Construction Contracts A construction contract is a contract specifically negotiated for the construction of an asset or a combination of assets that are closely interrelated or interdependent in terms of their design, technology and functions or their ultimate purpose or use. When the outcome of a construction contract can be estimated reliably, contract revenue and contract costs are recognised as revenue and expenses respectively by reference to the stage of completion of the contract activity at the balance sheet date. The stage of completion of a construction contract is determined based on the proportion that the contract costs incurred for work performed to-date bear to the estimated total costs for the contract. Costs incurred during the financial year in connection with future activity on a contract are excluded from costs incurred to-date when determining the stage of completion of a contract. Such costs are shown as amounts due from/(to) customers on construction contracts on the balance sheet unless it is not probable that such contract costs are recoverable from the customers, in which case such costs are recognised as an expense immediately. 3.32 2006 RM 3.53

Contract revenue comprises the initial amount of revenue agreed in the contract and variations in the contract work and claims that can be measured reliably. A variation or a claim is only included in contract revenue when it is probable that the customer will approve the variation or negotiations have reached an advanced stage such that it is probable that the customer will accept the claim. (b) Sale of goods Revenue from sale of goods is measured at the fair value of the consideration receivable and is recognised in the income statement when the significant risks and rewards of ownership have been transferred to the buyer. (c) Service income Service income is recognised on an accrual basis when services have been rendered. (d) Dividend income Dividend income is recognised when the Group's right to receive payment is established. (e) Rental income Rental income is recognised on a time proportion basis over the lease term. The aggregate cost of incentives provided to lessees is recognised as a reduction of rental income over the lease term on a straight-line basis. (f) Interest income Interest income is recognised on a time proportion basis taking into account the principal outstanding and the effective interest rate applicable. (g) Management fee Management fee is recognised on an accrual basis when service is rendered. (h) Hire of machinery and equipment Income from hire of machinery and equipment is recognised on a time proportion basis over the term of hire. (i) Commission income Commission income is recognised on an accrual basis when service is rendered.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.24 Income taxes Current tax expense is determined according to the tax laws of each jurisdiction in which the Group operates and includes all taxes based upon the taxable profits, including withholding taxes payable by a foreign subsidiary, associate or jointly controlled entity on distributions of retained earnings to companies in the Group. Deferred tax is recognised in full, using the liability method, on temporary differences at the balance sheet date between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the financial statements. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences to the extent that it is probable that taxable profits will be available against which the deductible temporary differences or unused tax losses can be utilised. Deferred tax is not recognised if the temporary difference arises from goodwill or from the initial recognition of an asset or liability in a transaction which is not a business combination and, at the time of the transaction, affects neither accounting profit nor taxable profit. Deferred tax is recognised on temporary differences arising on investments in subsidiaries, associates and jointly controlled entities, except where the timing of the reversal of the temporary difference can be controlled and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future. Deferred tax is measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply to the period when the asset is realised or the liability is settled, based on tax rates that have been enacted or substantively enacted at the balance sheet date. Deferred tax is recognised in the income statement, except when it arises from a transaction which is recognised directly in equity, in which case the deferred tax is also charged or credited directly to equity, or when it arises from a business combination that is an acquisition, in which case the deferred tax is included in the resulting goodwill. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset when the enterprise has a legally enforceable right to offset and intends to settle either on a net basis or to realise the asset and settle the liability simultaneously. 2.25 Employee benefits (a) Short term benefits Salaries, wages, bonuses and social security contributions are recognised as an expense in the financial year in which the services are rendered by employees. Short term accumulating compensated absences such as paid annual leave are recognised when services are rendered by employees that increase their entitlements to future compensated absences, and short term non-accumulating compensated absences such as sick leave are recognised when the absences occur. Non-monetary benefits such as medical care, housing and other staff related expenses are charged to the income statements as and when incurred. (b) Post-employment benefits The Group has post-employment benefit schemes in accordance with local conditions and practices in the countries in which it operates. These post-employment benefit schemes are defined contribution plans. A defined contribution plan is a pension plan under which the Group pays fixed contributions into a separate entity (a fund) and will have no legal or constructive obligations to pay further contributions if the fund does not hold sufficient assets to pay all employee benefits relating to employee services in the current and prior periods.

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2007 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.25 Employee benefits (Cont'd) (b) Post-employment benefits (Cont'd) As required by law, the Company and its subsidiaries in Malaysia make contributions to the Employees Provident Fund ("EPF") which is a defined contribution plan, whereas companies in other countries make their respective local contributions, if require by law. Such contributions are recognised as an expense in the income statement in the financial year to which they relate. (c) Share-based compensation The Group operates an equity settled, share based compensation for its employees. The share option programme allows the Group employees to acquire shares of the Company. The fair values of share options granted to employees is recognised as employee expenses with a corresponding increase in equity, over the period in which the employee becomes unconditionally entitled to the options. The fair value of employee share options is measured using the Black Scholes model. Measurement inputs include share price on measurement date, exercise price of the instrument, expected volatility (based on weighted average historic volatility adjusted for changes expected due to publicly available information), weighted average expected life of the instruments (based on the historical experience and general option holder behaviour), expected dividends, and the risk-free interest rate (based on the government bond). Service and non-market performance conditions attached to the transactions are not taken into account in determining fair value. The proceeds received net of any directly attributable transaction costs are credited to share capital (nominal value) and share premium when the options are exercised. The Group has taken advantage of the transitional provisions of FRS 2 "Share-based Payment" in respect of equity instruments granted after 31 December 2004 and not vested as at 1 January 2006, and not recognised any expense in respect of these instruments. 2.26 Segment reporting Segment reporting is presented for enhanced assessment of the Group's risks and returns. A business segment is a group of assets and operations engaged in providing products or services that subject to risk and returns that are different from those of other business segments. A geographical segment is engaged in providing products or services within a particular economic environment that is subject to risks and returns that are different from those operating in other economic environments. Segment revenue, expense, assets and liabilities are those amounts resulting from operating activities of a segment that are directly attributable to the segment and a relevant portion that can be allocated on a reasonable basis to the segment. Segment revenue, expense, assets and liabilities are determined before intra-group balances and intragroup transactions are eliminated as part of the consolidation process, except to the extent that such intra group balances and transactions are between group enterprises within a single segment.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.27 Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents are short term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to insignificant risk of changes in value. For the purpose of the cash flow statements, cash and cash equivalents are presented net of bank overdrafts and exclude fixed deposits pledged to secure banking facilities. 2.28 Financial instruments A financial instrument is any contract that gives rise to both a financial asset of one enterprise and a financial liability or equity instrument of another enterprise. (a) Financial instruments recognised in the balance sheets The recognised financial instruments of the Group comprise cash and cash equivalents, receivables, payables, equity investments, borrowings, hire purchase liabilities, ICULS and redeemable preference shares as well as ordinary share capital. These financial instruments are recognised when a contractual relationship has been established. The accounting policies and methods adopted, including the criteria for recognition and the basis of measurement applied, are disclosed in relevant accounting policy notes. The information on the extent and nature of these recognised financial instruments, including significant terms and conditions that may affect the amount, timing and certainty of future cash flows are disclosed in the respective notes to the financial statements. (b) Financial instruments not recognised in the balance sheets Foreign currency forward contracts The Group enters into foreign currency forward contracts to protect the Group from movements in exchange rates by establishing the rate at which a foreign currency asset or liability will be settled. Exchange gain and losses on contracts are recognised in the income statement when settled at which time they are included in the measurement of the transaction hedged. (c) Fair value estimation for disclosure purposes The fair value of publicly traded securities is based on quoted market prices at the balance sheet date. The fair value of forward foreign exchange contracts is determined using forward exchange market rates at the balance sheet date. In assessing the fair value of financial instruments, the Group uses a variety of methods and makes assumptions that are based on market conditions existing at each balance sheet date. Quoted market prices or dealer quotes for the specific or similar instruments are used for long term debt. Other techniques and bases, such as discounted value of future cash flows and the underlying net asset base of the instrument, are used to determine fair value for the remaining financial instruments. In particular, the fair value of financial liabilities is estimated by discounting the future contractual cash flows at the current market interest rate available to the Group for similar financial instruments. The carrying values of financial assets and financial liabilities with a maturity period of less than one year are assumed to approximate their fair values.

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2007 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT'D) 2.29 Contingent liabilities The Group does not recognise a contingent liability but discloses its existence in the financial statements. A contingent liability is a possible obligation that arises from past events whose existence will be confirmed by the occurrence or non-occurrence of one or more uncertain future events beyond the control of the Group or a present obligation that is not recognised because it is not probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation. A contingent liability also arises in the extremely rare case where there is a liability that cannot be recognised because it cannot be measured reliably.

3.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING ESTIMATES AND JUDGEMENTS Estimates and judgements are continually evaluated by the Directors and are based on historical experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. The Group makes estimates and assumptions concerning the future. The resulting accounting estimates will, by definition, rarely equal the related actual results. The estimates and assumptions that have a significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the next financial year are outlined below. (a) Income taxes The Group is subject to income taxes in numerous jurisdictions. Significant judgement is required in determining the capital allowances and deductibility of certain expenses during the estimation of the provision for income taxes. There are many transactions and calculations for which the ultimate tax determination is uncertain during the ordinary course of business. Where the final tax outcome of these matters is different from the amounts that were initially recorded, such differences will impact the income tax and deferred income tax provisions in the period in which such determination is made. (b) Deferred tax assets Deferred tax asset is recognised to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profits will be available against which the temporary differences can be utilised. This involves judgment regarding the future financial performance of the particular entity in which the deferred tax asset has been recognised. (c) Results of jointly controlled operation There was a change of ownership of the Nigerian joint venture in the Group's jointly controlled operation in Nigeria. Following this change, the Group and the current Nigerian joint venture partner have been experiencing difficulties in accessing financial information on this jointly controlled operation for the financial years ended 2006 and 2007. Due to the above and based on the latest available unaudited financial information of the jointly controlled operation which showed a loss, the Group has made provision for its potential share of loss estimated at RM1.87 million (USD0.5 million) as at 31 December 2007. Based on communication with the current joint venture partner, the Group does not anticipate incurring losses in excess of the recognised provision.

GOODWILL (CONT'D) 2007 RM'000 Accumulated impairment loss At 1 January Impairment loss recognised for the financial year At 31 December Net book value at 31 December Impairment testing of goodwill Goodwill acquired in business combinations have been allocated to the Group's cash generating units ("CGU") identified according to business segments as follows: 2007 RM'000 Oil and gas segment - Specialised Pipe Coating and Corrosion Protection Services ("CGU A") - EPC, Fabrication and Rental of Gas Compressors and Process Equipment ("CGU B") - E&P Products and Services ("CGU C") Others (individually not material) 59,416 43,302 8,348 2,936 114,002 2006 RM'000 60,848 45,847 9,272 4,905 120,872 60,687 468 61,155 114,002 46,706 13,981 60,687 120,872 Group 2006 RM'000 (Restated)

The recoverable amount of the CGU is determined based on value-in-use calculations. These calculations use pre­tax cash flow projections based on financial budgets approved by management covering a three years period. Value in use was determined by discounting the future cash flows generated from the cash-generating units and was based on the following key assumptions: CGU A Growth rate Discount rate 5% - 18.2% 10% - 13.4% CGU B 12% - 16% 10.6% CGU C 9.5% - 15% 6% - 10%

The following describes each key assumption on which the management has based its cash flow projections to undertake impairment testing for goodwill: (i) Overall assumption There will be no material changes in the principals activities of the Group. (ii) Growth rate The growth rate used to extrapolate the cash flows is based on the respective business plans. (iii) Discount rate The discount rate used reflect the specific risks relating to the relevant CGU as shown above.

EARNINGS PER SHARE ATTRIBUTABLE TO EQUITY HOLDERS OF THE COMPANY (a) Basic The basic earnings per share for the financial year has been calculated by dividing the Group's profit attributable to equity holders of the Company for the financial year of RM86,039,000 (2006: RM37,414,000) by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the financial year, adjusted to include the potential ordinary shares that would be issued upon conversion of a mandatorily convertible instrument (ICULS) and the increase in ordinary shares as a result of the completion of the Proposed Bonus Issue as explained in Note 54 of 633,610,063 (2006: 625,586,042). The basic earnings per share are adjusted retrospectively to take into account the potential ordinary shares that would be issued upon conversion of a mandatorily convertible instrument (ICULS) and the increase in ordinary shares as a result of the completion of the Proposals as explained in Note 54. The weighted average number of ordinary shares is calculated as follows: Group 2007 RM'000 Number of ordinary shares at beginning of the financial year Effect of shares issued : - conversion of Irredeemable Convertible Unsecured Loan Stocks ("ICULS") - exercise of Employee Share Option Scheme (" ESOS") Effect of shares buy back Adjustment for weighted average number of shares assuming conversion of remaining ICULS Effect of the potential increase in shares due to the Proposed Bonus Issue and the `bonus' element of the Proposed Rights Issue Weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue Basic earnings per share 395,560 13,460 8,800 (1,234) 108,082 2006 RM'000 (Restated) 379,550 5,021 3,967 (16) 128,122

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2007 41 EARNINGS PER SHARE ATTRIBUTABLE TO SHAREHOLDERS OF THE COMPANY (CONT'D) (b) Fully diluted For the diluted earnings per share calculation, the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue is adjusted to assume conversion of all dilutive potential ordinary shares, ESOS. In respect of share options granted to employees, a calculation is done to determine the number of shares that could have been acquired at fair value (determined as the average share price of the Company's shares) based on the monetary value of the subscription rights attached to outstanding share options. The number of shares calculated as above is compared with the number of shares that would have been issued assuming the exercise of the share options. The difference is added to the denominator as an issue of ordinary shares for no consideration. This calculation serves to determine the `bonus' element in the ordinary shares outstanding for the purpose of computing the dilution. No adjustment is made to profit for the period for the share options calculation. Group 2007 RM'000 Profit attributable to ordinary equity holders of the Company The weighted average number of ordinary shares is calculated as follows: 2007 '000 Weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue (as per above) Adjustment for the bonus element weighted average number of shares assuming the full exercise of ESOS Adjusted weighted average number of ordinary shares for diluted earnings per share Diluted earnings per share 2006 '000 (Restated) 625,586 1,020 626,606 5.97 86,039 2006 RM'000 37,414

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2007 48. CONTINGENT LIABILITIES (CONT'D) Note B: On 29 October 2007, a claim for AUD3.5 million was served by Workcover Corporation of South Australia ("Plaintiff") on Delco Australia Pty Ltd ("Delco"), a subsidiary, for supplementary exit levy referred to as "balancing payment" under the Workers Rehabilitation and Compensation Act, 1986. This balancing payment was imposed on grounds that Delco had "ceased to be an Employer" when Delco filed a "No Employee" return under the WorkCover Scheme notwithstanding that Delco had been paying the monthly levy payments prior to this return. The filing of the "No Employee" return was consequent of Delco's rationalisation of its operations in Australia by concentrating its business entirely in Brisbane, Queensland instead of previously operating in both Adelaide, South Australia and Brisbane. The Directors' are of the view that the Plaintiff is not empowered to impose the balancing payment and contend that the calculation in any event for the balancing payment is excessive.

FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2007 50. FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES The Group's overall financial risk management objectives and policies are to ensure that the Group creates value and maximises returns for its shareholders. Financial risk management is carried out through risk review, internal control systems, benchmarking the industry's best practices and adherence to the Group's financial risk management policies. The main risks arising from the financial instruments of the Group are credit risk, interest rate risk, market risk, foreign currency exchange risk and liquidity and cash flow risk. Management monitors the Group's financial position closely with the objective to minimise potential adverse effects on the financial performance of the Group. Management reviews on policies for managing each of these risks and they are summarised below. These policies have remained substantially unchanged during the financial year. Credit risk Credit risk arises when progress billings on contract works are raised, sales are made and services rendered on deferred credit terms. The entire financial assets of the Group are exposed to credit risk except for the cash and bank balances and time deposits which are placed with licensed financial institutions. The Group invests its cash assets safely and profitably by depositing them with licensed financial institutions. The Group's exposure to credit risk is monitored on an ongoing basis. The Group has credit policies in place to manage the credit risk exposure. The risk is managed through the application of the Group's extensive credit management procedures which include the application of credit approvals whereby credit evaluations are performed on all customers requiring credit over a certain amount and period, adherence to credit limits, regular monitoring and follow up procedures. Concentration of credit risk with respect to receivables is limited due to a wide spread of customers in various industries. The Group does not have any significant exposure with respect to non-trade receivables. The Group does not require collateral in respect of financial assets and considers the risk of material loss from the non-performance on the part of financial counter-parties to be negligible. Interest rate risk The Group is exposed to interest rate risk which is the risk that a financial instrument's value will fluctuate as a result of changes in market interest rates. Exposure to interest rate risk relates primarily to the Group's time deposits and interest-bearing borrowings. Surplus funds are placed with licensed financial institutions to earn interest income based on prevailing market rates. The Group manages its interest rate risks by placing such funds on short tenures of 12 months or less. The Group's policy is to borrow principally on a floating rate basis for short term borrowings and on fixed rate basis for long term borrowings. The objective of a mix of fixed and floating rate borrowings is to reduce the impact of a rise in interest rates and to enable savings to be enjoyed if interest rates fall. The Group has a policy to ensure that interest rates obtained are competitive.

FINANCIAL RISK MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES AND POLICIES (CONT'D) Market risk Market risk is the risk that a financial instrument's value will fluctuate as a result of changes in market price. The Group's exposure to market risk is in respect of its quoted investments. These investments are monitored regularly and subject to periodic review. An allowance for diminution in value is made if the Directors are of the opinion that there is a decline in the value of such investments which is other than temporary. The Group does not use derivative instruments to manage the risk as the investments are held for long term strategic purposes. Foreign currency exchange risk Foreign currency denominated assets and liabilities together with expected cash flows from anticipated transactions denominated in foreign currencies give rise to foreign exchange exposures. Foreign currency forward contracts are entered into by the Group to limit their exposure on foreign currency receivables and payables, and on cash flows generated from anticipated transactions denominated in foreign currencies. Liquidity and cash flow risk Prudent liquidity risk management implies maintaining sufficient cash, time deposits and the availability of funding through an adequate amount of committed credit facilities. The Group's exposure to liquidity and cash flow risk is monitored on an ongoing basis. Due to the nature of the business, the Group aims at maintaining flexibility in funding by keeping committed credit lines available. The concentration of liquidity and cash flow risk with respect to bank borrowings, hire purchase liabilities and ICULS are minimal as the Group maintains sufficient cash to meet these commitments.

It is not practicable to estimate the fair value of the Group's unquoted investments because of the lack of reference market prices and the inability to estimate fair value without incurring excessive costs. However, the carrying amounts recorded are not anticipated to differ significantly from their fair values at the balance sheet date.
