4. COVID-19:

Impact and action plan

COVID-19 came as an unprecedented global crisis. It disrupted life, changing the way one lives, works and interact with each other. In India, the first case was reported on January 30, 2020 while the disease had already claimed many lives in neighboring China and was rapidly spreading across the globe. To curtail the spread of the infection within its border, India had imposed a strict nationwide lockdown and promulgated health and safety regulations, shutting factories, banning all kinds of travel, mandating social distancing and quarantines.

In this period of uncertainty, your Company's prime focus was to collaborate and manage the crisis for its employees, customers, partners and the community, and build its spirit and strength. Your Company adopted a three-pronged approach:

• Protecting our people,

• Preserving business continuity, and

• Preparing for the new norm

Protecting our people

Your Company's priority was to keep its employees, customers and partners safe.

In accordance with the Ministry of Home Affairs ("MHA") national lockdown requirements from March 25, 2019, operations across plants, project sites and offices were closed. Besides energizing the network of your Company location specific crisis teams, an exclusive helpline for employees was started to support its employees' and their families' emotional welfare. Medical assistance was arranged at employees' fingertips through a third party primary and preventive care service provider even as they worked from home.

Voluntary COVID-19 testing, medical reviews and checks were organized at various locations. As operations were permitted to resume by the various governing authorities, your Company capped the number of employees working at a particular time at all plants and offices; made arrangements for sanitized transportation to factories and demarcated work and common areas to ensure strict adherence to social distancing. At project sites, processes were put in place to ensure secure and safe lodging facilities for migrant workforce.

Employees were provided protective gear like masks, face shields, gloves and sanitizers; mandated to take all safety precautions and maintain absolute transparency in health declarations. All employees were encouraged to download the Aarogya Setu app launched by the Government of India. This is followed until date.

In addition to all this, most employees voluntarily donated one-day salary to the PM CARES Fund. This donation was matched by your Company, totaling Rs 1.24 crore, as a mark of solidarity in this time of crisis.

Preserve business continuity

Your Company maintained business continuity by amplifying customer engagement through technology and leveraging digital solutions for product service and training, and even commissioning of certain projects. Your Company implemented cost control measures to conserve cash and recovered lost production days by strategically planning shifts and rotations to enable maximum capacity utilization of shop floors while ensuring social distancing, implementing a six-day workweek to compensate for productivity loss; and

focusing on collections and liquidity. Your Company was able to preserve cash by proactively identifying and postponing non-essential spends and optimizing external resources and personnel expenses.

All through, your Company's ambition was to prepare for the new norm in the best possible manner and build back better.

Prepare for the new norm

Backed by your Company's resilience and zest for innovation, your Company quickly adapted to the new norm. Besides switching to Remote Factory Acceptance Tests (RFAT) where possible, your Company conducted numerous virtual technical webinars, attended by over thousands of participants from utilities, industries, transport and infrastructure segment across countries, and launched its flagship customer event Energy and Digital World. Your Company continued engagement with industry leaders through virtual industry events, and specific one-on-one CEO connects that helped it keep a finger on the pulse across various verticals.

Your Company also remained a trusted partner for training top talent and had such requests from various customers. Your Company conducted workshops for hundreds of customers from about two dozen utilities, devoted efforts toward developing future talent for its high-growth segments and ran more than 60 separate training programs for over thousand people, totaling ~3,500 man-days in training.

While the blow of the pandemic couldn't be completely blunted, your Company was able to see some semblance of normalcy by the third quarter. The closure of factories and sites - your Company and its customers' - for half the second quarter reflected in your Company's business performance in the April-June period. Further details on this have been shared in subsequent sections.

By December 2020, the count of fresh COVID-19 cases had come down and dry run of vaccination had started in some states. With the economy gradually opening up, the Reserve Bank of India revised its forecast of economic growth for the current fiscal year (2020-21) to (-) 7.5 percent compared to its earlier forecast of (-) 9.5 percent. While your Company has made every effort to swiftly adapt to the new norm, the closures will likely have an impact on its performance which can only be gauged in the quarter ending June 30, 2020.

5. Scheme of Arrangement:

A Scheme of Arrangement ("Scheme") was entered into between (i) ABB India Limited ("INABB"/"Transferor") and (ii) your Company ("Company"/"Transferee") and their respective shareholders and creditors, pursuant to the provisions of Section 230 to 232 and other applicable provisions of the Companies Act, 2013, ("Act") which provided for inter alia the Demerger of the Power Grids

Business of INABB ("Demerged Undertaking") and the consequent issuance of equity shares by your Company to the shareholders of INABB as per the share entitlement ratio.

The Scheme was approved by your Board of Directors pursuant to its resolution dated March 5, 2019 and the Board of Directors of INABB pursuant to its resolution dated March 5, 2019. Pursuant to an order dated June 27, 2019, passed by the National Company Law Tribunal, Bengaluru Bench, ("NCLT"), meetings of the equity shareholders and the creditors of INABB were convened. The equity shareholders and the creditors of INABB approved the Scheme at court convened meetings, each held on August 9, 2019. The NCLT approved the Scheme on November 27, 2019. The Appointed Date of the Scheme was April 1,2019 and the Effective Date was December 1,2019.

The Scheme provided for the transfer by way of a demerger of the Demerged Undertaking and the consequent issue of equity shares by your Company to the shareholders of INABB in accordance with the share entitlement ratio, and various other matters consequential or integrally connected therewith, including the re-organisation of the share capital of the Transferee, pursuant to Sections 230 to 232 of the Act, the SEBI circulars and in compliance with the Income Tax Act, 1961

6. Board of Directors' response to observations, qualifications and adverse remarks in Auditor's Report

The Statutory Auditors ("Auditors") have qualified their opinion in relation to the matters specified in Notes 38 of the Financial Statements for the year ended December 31,2020 ("Statements").

a. Qualified Opinion:

We have audited the accompanying Ind AS financial statements of ABB Power Products and Systems India Limited ("the Company"), which comprise the Balance sheet as at December 31 2020, the Statement of Profit and Loss, including the statement of Other Comprehensive Income, the Cash Flow Statement and the Statement of Changes in Equity for the year then ended, and notes to the Ind AS financial statements, including a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the possible effects of the matters described in the ‘Basis for Qualified Opinion' section of our report, the aforesaid Ind AS financial statements give the information required by the Companies Act, 2013, as amended ("the Act") in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, of the state of affairs of the Company as at December 31,2020, its profit including other comprehensive income, its cash flows and the changes in equity for the year ended on that date.

b. Basis for Qualified Opinion:

We draw attention to Note 38 (a) to the accompanying Ind AS financial statements regarding the Scheme of Arrangement (‘Scheme') for demerger of the power grid business of ABB India Limited with the Company with an appointed date of April 01, 2019 and approved by the National Company Law Tribunal (‘NCLT') vide its order dated November 27, 2019. As per the applicable accounting standard Ind AS 103, since this demerger was a common control business combination, the financial information necessitated restatement by the transferee at carrying amounts not from the appointed date but from the beginning of the preceding period in the financial statements which happens to be the date of incorporation i.e. February 19, 2019. Accordingly, the Company was required as per Ind AS 103 to give effect to the business combination from February 19, 2019 (date of its incorporation). However, the Company had recognized the impact of the business combination only from April 01, 2019 (i.e. the appointed date specified in the scheme) and has not restated and disclosed financial results for the period from February 19, 2019 to March 31, 2019, in the comparative period ended December 31, 2019. However, there is no impact of the same on the Company's Ind AS financial statements of the year ended December 31,2020. Our opinion on the current year's statement is qualified because of the possible effect of this matter on the comparability of the current period's figures and the corresponding figures.

This matter was also qualified in the comparative period by the preceding auditor.

c. Board's response to qualification in Auditor's Report:

The Statutory Auditors ("Auditors") have qualified their opinion in relation to the matters specified in Notes 38 of the Financial Statements for the financial year ended December 31, 2020 ("Statements"). The Board's response to the qualifications are as follows.

As per the applicable accounting standard Ind AS 103 (‘standard'), since this demerger is a common control business combination, the financial information necessitates restatement by the Company at carrying amounts not from the appointed date but from the beginning of the preceding period in the financial statements which happens to be the date of incorporation i.e. February 19, 2019. Consequentially, the Company is required to give effect to the business combination from February 19, 2019 (date of its incorporation). However, the Company has recognised the impact of the business combination only from April 1, 2019 (i.e. the appointed date specified in the scheme of arrangement). The Company is of the view that due to incoherence between the appointed date i.e., April 1, 2019 and date of incorporation i.e. February 19, 2019 and requirements of Ind AS 103 such a one-off situation has arisen. Further, in addition to what has been stated in Note 38 (a) of the Statements, we wish to state that in anticipation of reorganisation of ABB India Limited's business by way of said Scheme, the Company was incorporated. Such date of incorporation is not in control of the Company. The Registrar of Companies issued the certificate of incorporation on February 19, 2019. The management confirms that, during the period between February 19, 2019 and March 31,2019, no active business was undertaken other than the initial paid up share capital. In light of the above, there is no impact on the financial statements of the Company as at December 31,2020 as affirmed by the Auditors. Thus, the statement of profit and loss (including other comprehensive income), statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows for the period do not contain the impact of the transactions of the demerged undertaking from February 19, 2019 to March 31, 2019.

7. Change in the financial year:

Your Company was incorporated on February 19, 2019 with first financial year commencing on February 19, 2019 and ending on March 31, 2020. Your Company subsequently made an application to the Regional Director, South East Region, Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Hyderabad on November 5, 2019 to change your Company's first financial year from February 19, 2019 to December 31, 2019. Pursuant to an order bearing no. F.No:10/19/Karnataka/RD (SER)/2(41) of 2013/2019/6328 dated December 12, 2019, passed by the Regional Director, South East Region, Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Hyderabad your Company's financial year commenced on January 1 and ended on December 31 of a given year.

Subsequent to the transfer of shares held by promoters from ABB Asea Brown Boveri Ltd., to ABB Ltd and then to Hitachi ABB Power Grids Ltd., given that the financial year of Hitachi ABB Power Grids Ltd., is April - March, the Board of Directors at their meeting held on February 26, 2021 has approved the change in financial year of your Company to April-March and that the current financial year will be from January 01,2021 to March 31, 2022 (15 months) and thereafter, all financial years shall commence on April 01 and end on March 31 every year.

8. Material changes and commitments, if any, affecting the financial position of the Company, having occurred since the end of the year and till the date of this report and disclosures:

Other than those mentioned in this Report, there have been no material changes and commitments, which affect the financial position of your Company which have occurred between the end of the financial year to which the financial statements relate and the date of this Report.

9. Annual Return:
