The above image compares the Tata Steel Standalone data with the Tata Steel Group. By this we
can analyse that Tata Steel Standalone is way better in performance as compared to Tata Steel
Group if we see EBITDA/ Turnover, PBT/ Turnover, etc.
4. Balance Sheet
Significant accounting policies-

(a). Statement of compliance: The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Indian
Accounting Standards (referred to as “Ind AS”) prescribed under section 133 of the companies Act, 2013
read with Companies (Indian Accounting Standards) Rules, as amended from time to time.

(b). Basis of preparation: The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention
with the exception of certain assets and liabilities that are required to be carried at fair values by Ind AS.

(c). Use of estimates and critical accounting judgements: In the preparation of financial statements, the
Company makes judgements, estimates and assumptions about the carrying values of assets and liabilities
that are not readily apparent from other sources. The estimates and associated assumptions are based on
historical experience and other factors that are considered to be relevant. Actual results may differ from
these estimates.

(d). Useful lives of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets: The Company reviews the useful
life of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets at the end of each reporting period. This
reassessment may result in change in depreciation and amortisation expense in future periods.

(e). Valuation of deferred tax assets: The Company reviews the carrying amount of deferred tax assets at the
end of each reporting period.

(f). Depreciation and amortisation of property, plant and equipment and intangible assets: Depreciation or
amortisation is provided so as to write off, on a straight line basis, the cost/deemed cost of property, plant
and equipment and intangible assets, including those held under finance leases to their residual value.
5. Statement of Profit and Loss

1. REVENUE RECOGNITION: Revenue from sale of goods is recognised net of rebates and
discounts on transfer of significant Asks and rewards of ownership to the buyer. Sale of
goods is recognised gross of excise duty but net of sales tax and value added tax.

2. EMPLOYEE BENEFITS: Short-term employee benefits are recognised as an expense at the

undiscounted amount in the Statement of Profit and Loss of the year in which the employee
has rendered services.



Exceptional Items:

(a). 'Profit on sale of non-current investments' represents profit of 104.29 crore on sale of
investments held by the Company in its subsidiaries, associates and others.

(b). The previous year amount of 'Profit on sale of non-current assets' represents profit on sale
of a land at Borivali, Mumbai.

(c). During the year, the Company carried out impairment testing of its exposure in some of its
affiliate companies due to the existence of factors indicating probable impairment.

(d). 'Provision for impairment on non-current assets' of Rs. 51.51 crore represents non-cash
write down of fixed assets and inventory in certain non-performing business units.

(e). Provisions for demands and claims' of Rs. 880.05 crore represents provisions created during
the year for certain demands and claims.

(f). Employee Separation Compensation' represents the charge of Rs. 556.25 crore taken on
Employee Separation Scheme.

Major source revenue decreased as compared to 2014-15 because of market instability and

Income from other sources sees a major jump of almost 6 times as compared to 2014-15 in
2015-16(sale of other non-current investments were the highlights).
6. Cash Flow Statement

Operating- working capital changes

Investing- purchase of lots of assets (investments-current as well as non-current)

Financing- interest and dividend paid, proceeds from borrowings


1. Deferred Tax Liability(net)/ Deferred Tax Asset(net): The Deferred tax liabilities (net) at the
year end are slightly less from the beginning because DTA was very less as compared to DTL
every time. Not much of the Deferred tax liabilities were paid-off during the year using reserves
because of less cash reserves with the company and more expenses to pay off. Rest details can
be seen in below image.
2. Earnings per share data: Less Earnings per share is a risky and less profitable position for the
company as it creates a bad image among the investors about the company which can seriously
affect the company’s market share, profitability, and net income earned on per share or stock,
etc. Company was in a good position in 2014-15, and then slipped down to Rs. 48.67 crore in
3. Share Capital Breakdown: No change or alteration was there with regards to authorized and
issued share capital of the company (both including preference and equity shares).

• Other: No change or alteration can be seen in the holding by the major stakeholders from
F.Y.2014-15 to F.Y.2015-16.
4. Reserves and Surplus (Surplus in the Statement of Profit and Loss): Profit decreased because
of many reasons like stiff competition, low EPS, etc.

5. Provisions: Short-term provisions saw a major increase because of increase in provision for
employee separation compensation in 2015-16 and provision for taxation also in 2015-16 which
are both explained briefly in additional information in the image below.
