Total Assets Ship, Properties & Equipment Cash, Deposits and Bank Balances Shareholders Funds

Balance sheet G Total assets increased by 51.8% of which RM6.0 billion was contributed by the acquisition of AET and increased stake in MSE Holdings Sdn. Bhd. group ("MSE"). Total vessels owned as at 30 June 2004 have also increased to 138 from 126 in the prior year. G Shareholders' funds increased by 18.0% resulting from additional earnings retained for the financial year. G Cash, deposits and bank balances increased by 80% or RM824.6 million. The increase were mainly due to the net cash generated from operations of RM2,446 million and net cash from financing activities of RM2,750 million. Financing activities registered a net inflow which resulted from the drawdown of the bridging loan facility

+ 00 20

01 20

04 20
and the additional Japan Bank for International Cooperation ("JBIC") loan drawdown on top of repayments of the Group's current loan obligations. However, these total inflows were reduced by the significant cash outflow for investing activities amounting to RM4,368 million for capital expenditure as described below and the acquisition of AET during the year. Capital expenditure continued its northward march as the Group maintains its investment pace registering a 36.8% increase in expenditure relative to last year. The payments comprise mainly of progress payments for LNG, Petroleum and the Floating, Production, Storage & Offloading (FPSO) project as well as MISC's LNG Tenaga vessels refurbishment project. G

Total Debt/Equity Net Debt/Equity

Debt/Equity ratio Debt/Equity ratio increased to 0.82 from 0.44 due to the bridging loan used to fund the AET acquisition as well as the consolidation of AET's existing loans. Furthermore, the Group increased its drawdown of the JBIC loan to finance the new LNG vessels construction. Nevertheless, the ratio remains significantly lower than the industry norm of 2.0 times.

Statement On Internal Control (continued)

The Maritime Risk Council (MRC) is responsible to ensure various maritimerelated risks are identified and all necessary measures are in place for MISC to comply with the stringent international safety and environmental standards. Continual assessment and profiling is carried out to ensure preventive and recovery measures are adequate in the challenging maritime environment. A Maritime Risk Profiling workshop was conducted during the year to revalidate the Maritime Risk exposure. Further improvements on preventive and recovery controls have been identified to be implemented to ensure risk exposure are mitigated / reduced. The MISC Credit Committee (MCC) regularly reviews the credit risk and advises on appropriate measures to improve existing credit control

The Group has financial risk guidelines for managing the Groups foreign exchange, interest rate, liquidity, price and counter-party risks. The Group also leverages on PETRONAS group resources via the Finance Risk Council (FRC) when addressing / assessing financial risks. The FRC is a forum which proactively discusses, reviews and monitors finance risk exposure at Group level and makes appropriate recommendations to companies within the Group. It also fosters coordination of the Group Finance risk management practices and approaches in accordance with established policies and guidelines. MISC benefited from being a part of the PETRONAS Group, which has an established Risk Management Committee, of which MISCs Managing Director is a member, which defines, develops and recommends risk management strategies and policies for the PETRONAS group. In addition, the Risk Management Committee also coordinates group-wide risk management in terms of building risk management awareness and capabilities, monitoring the risk exposures and planning responses to potential major risk events. Key Processes The process of governing the effectiveness and integrity of the system of internal control is carried throughout the various areas as follows:1. The Board Audit Committee operating within its terms of reference and Management Audit Committee performs an important role in ensuring that there are effective risk monitoring and compliance procedures to provide the level of assurance required by the Board. 2. Senior Management sets the tone for an effective control culture in the organisation through the companys shared values, developed to focus on the importance of these four key values: Loyalty Integrity Professionalism Cohesiveness

procedures and practices and the quality of Trade Accounts Receivables. The MCC formulates its credit & trading risk based on the credit & trading operational guideline issued by the PETRONAS Groups Credit & Trading Risk Council (CTRC). The credit & trading policy and guidelines has been developed to ensure all matters relating to credit & trading risk are being addressed accordingly with proper guidelines.

Management audit committee in discussion

The importance of the shared values is manifested in the Corporations Code of Conduct for Officers and Staff which is issued to all staff upon joining. Employees are required to strictly adhere to the Code in performing their duties. 3. The Internal Audit Division, reporting to the Board Audit Committee, performs scheduled reviews of operations and compliance with companys policies and procedures to assess effectiveness of internal controls.

The Ship Management Audit Division, which reports regularly to the Management and Board Audit Committee, conducts regular audits on the physical condition and operational health of the Groups vessels. The audits are designed to ensure vessels integrity and that maintenance is performed to enhance safety and reliability of vessels at all times. The audit also assesses crew discipline and competency.

Statement On Internal Control (continued)

Other Significant Elements of Internal Control Systems The Board reviews quarterly reports from Management on the key operating performance, legal, environmental and regulatory matters. Financial performance is deliberated by the Management Committee and also tabled to the Board Audit Committee and Board on a quarterly basis.

There is a clear procedure for investment appraisal including equity investment or divestment and capital expenditure. Tender Committees are established to ensure tender evaluation exercises are conducted in an effective, transparent and fair manner. Information and Communication and Technology (ICT) is extensively employed in MISC to automate work processes and to collect key business information. There is a clear ITC guideline on ICT risk assessment and mitigation. The guideline spells out the risk management process by identifying the risk exposures, assessing and analysing the effect of the exposures and deriving a set of measures to manage and treat the identified risks.

The BTT has also been entrusted to manage change and organizational restructuring resulting from new systems and process rollout throughout the Group. Progress of systems implementation is monitored and reported at the Business Integration Committee to ensure smooth implementation. The professionalism and competency of staff are enhanced through a properly planned training, development program and also a stringent recruitment process. A performance appraisal system of staff is in place, with established targets and accountability and is reviewed on an annual basis. Action plans are prepared to ensure that staff obtain the required skills to fulfil their responsibilities and that the company can meet its future management requirements. The Board does not regularly review the internal control system of its associated companies and joint ventures, as the Board does not have any direct control over their operations. Notwithstanding, the groups interests are served through representation on the board of the respective associated companies and receipt and review of management accounts and inquiries thereon. These representations also provide the Board with information for timely decision making on the continuity of the Groups investments based on the performance of the associated companies. There were no material losses incurred during the current financial year as a result of weaknesses of internal control. Management would continue to take measures to strengthen the Groups control environment. This statement is made in accordance with the resolution of the Board of Directors dated 24 May 2004.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to present the Annual Report of Malaysia International Shipping Corporation Berhad (MISC) for the financial year ended 31 March 2004.

The period under review was an exceptionally good year for the shipping business on the back of a recovering global economy. Despite continuing geopolitical instability and uncertainties globally, the year saw increased demand for maritime logistics services, resulting in higher freight rates throughout most of the shipping segments. Against this backdrop, MISC registered the best ever results in its history by appropriately positioning itself to capitalise on the stronger freight rates environment and diligently following through its strategic initiatives in the areas of business

Operating in a favourable business environment, MISC turned in a record revenue of RM7,606.3 million, an increase of 40% from RM5,433 million recorded in the previous year. Group profit before tax surged 77.5% to a record high of RM2,326 million from

MISC continued to focus on serving the energy sector particularly through the LNG, petroleum, and chemical shipping businesses, and offshore and heavy engineering businesses which contributed to more than 90% of the Groups profits. The Company managed to turn around its Liner business through business rationalization, better cost management and improved work processes. A lot of effort went into repositioning the Liner business towards higher yielding long haul segments. The bulk shipping business also showed a marked improvement in profitability due to record freight rates and lower operating cost. Through the implementation of the planned strategies and business acquisitions concluded during the year, MISC was able to deliver a higher Return on Shareholders

Additionally, Tenaga Empat completed its Life Extension Programme, which extended its life by another 20 years. MISC was also successful in securing the second third party LNG contract with J&S Cheniere. With the contract, MISC has two LNG tankers operating in the Mediterranean/Atlantic area, enhancing its presence in the region. MISC concluded the acquisition of AET from Neptune Orient Lines in July 2003, effectively transforming the Company into the second largest owner of Aframax petroleum tankers in the world. It also provided MISC the critical mass and the strategic positioning to serve its global customers with geographical coverage in both the Atlantic Basin and the Arabian Gulf-Far East sector. During the year, MISC commenced its offshore business with the chartering of a Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) facility to Murphy Sarawak Oil Company Ltd. MISC also successfully completed the conversion of MT Bunga Kertas into its first Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility, which was subsequently delivered to PETRONAS on a long-term charter. The conversion was performed at Malaysia Shipyard and Engineering Sdn Bhd (MSE). MISC increased its shareholding in MSE Holdings Sdn Bhd, the holding company of MSE, to 65% in March 2004. MISC will position MSE to spearhead its heavy engineering business concentrating on the energy sector. In April and May 2004, taking advantage of the increase in the second hand value of bulk vessels, MISC disposed fifteen bulk vessels in line with the rationalisation of its bulk shipping business.

Holding firm to its vision to be the preferred provider of world class maritime transportation and logistics services, especially in the energy transportation sector, MISC continued to grow its LNG shipping business with the deliveries of Puteri Nilam Satu and Puteri Zamrud Satu during the year resulting in a 17-strong LNG fleet. The two vessels have been employed to service long term contracts with MLNG Tiga Sdn Bhd. MISC also exercised the options for the construction of two new LNG tankers, bringing the number of LNG tankers under construction to six.

MISC will continue to capitalise on the projected growth in the LNG trade by growing its LNG fleet beyond its current 17 vessels and the additional six vessels already contracted to support additional business from both PETRONAS and third party customers. MISC will also benefit from the broader income base resulting from the inclusion of AET, which will increase the contribution from the petroleum shipping business.

In summary, MISC will continue to focus on growing the high yielding energy transportation segment and retaining its leadership position in the LNG and petroleum shipping businesses. Efforts are being made to improve our capabilities and competencies to ensure the realization of our vision to become the preferred provider of world class maritime transportation and logistics services.

Appreciation

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to place on record our heartfelt The consolidation of MSE and the introduction of offshore business will strengthen and grow MISCs income contribution from the targeted energy sector. Through the repositioning of MSE, increased participation of the offshore business, and the positioning of MISC Integrated Logistics Services (MILS) as a world class third party logistics provider to the energy and consumer product group sectors, MISC will be able to reap greater synergistic value within the Group and the PETRONAS Group as a whole. MISC will focus its Liner business on the long haul service where new investments will be required, rationalize its difficult Intra-Asia segment, and identify the older and less efficient vessels to be disposed.

The financial year ended 31 March 2004 was a record year for the shipping industry after experiencing a difficult period in FY2002/2003. FY2003/2004 saw freight rates recovering across the board with some of them at historical highs. Despite heightened security concerns with the war in Iraq, the continued tensions in the Middle East and the SARS outbreak, the world economy started to show signs of recovery especially in the United States and Japan. Even the Euro zone, though fragile, managed to show positive growth.

The global economic recovery raised demand for oil towards the later part of 2003 (Autumn/Winter season), which moved freight rates for petroleum tankers higher. Besides the growth in LNG demand from the Asia Pacific region, we also witnessed strong demand in the Atlantic area, especially in the USA and Spain, driven mainly by demand in the power sector. The

During the year, we positioned ourselves to ride the wave of freight rate recovery, strengthened our marketing capabilities and continued to improve our operational efficiencies and cost competitiveness. As a result, our previously loss-making liner, bulk and chemical shipping business segments achieved a turnaround in their performance. In line with our focus on the energy sector, we completed the

acquisition of American Eagle Tankers Inc. Ltd. (AET) in July 2003. MISC benefited from the timing of the acquisition which coincided with the upswing of the shipping market and managed to realize the value of AET as shown in this years results. Going forward, MISC expects higher contribution from the enlarged petroleum shipping business through wider market coverage, cost and operational synergies, and a larger asset pool.

LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS (LNG) SHIPPING BUSINESS


Heavy Industries (SHI) in July 2003 upon PETRONAS confirmation of their requirement. To support PETRONAS LNG trading company, ASEAN LNG Trading Company (ALTCO) which allows PETRONAS to penetrate new LNG markets and access new LNG supply sources, MISC negotiated and inchartered three LNG tankers for time charter of six to eight months to ALTCO. In FY2003/2004, MISC also made several charter proposals to various potential charterers in the Atlantic region. In the process, we were successful to charter Tenaga Empat to J&S Cheniere, a London based oil and gas trading company (affiliated to Cheniere Energy of the USA) on a 20-month time charter. In February 2004, we delivered Tenaga Empat to the charterer in Algeria after having undergone life extension refurbishment works. Since then, she has made deliveries from Bethioua, Algeria to Marmara, Turkey and Cove Point, USA. Arising from the high activity in the Atlantic market, the refurbished Tenaga Satu, which was on time charter to Gaz de France, was fully utilized delivering cargoes from Algeria and Nigeria to South Korea, France and USA. Tenaga Dua also delivered one MLNG Tiga cargo from Bintulu to Lake Charles, USA, the longest haul laden voyage ever performed by a Tenaga vessel, made possible by its recent refurbishment works. On its return voyage, the vessel back-hauled a cargo from Oman to Japan. These new developments further strengthened our capabilities and broadened our service coverage in line with our strategy of becoming a truly global LNG shipping service provider. Last year, MISC safely completed 316 deliveries of around 16 million metric tonnes of LNG cargoes through its fleet of 17 LNG tankers. MISC marked another milestone last year when Puteri Firus, Puteri Intan and Puteri Nilam Satu delivered cargoes from Karratha, West Australia and Lumut, Brunei to South Korea. It was the first time the three vessels loaded cargoes from a terminal outside of Bintulu further strengthening our capabilities of plying outside traditional boundaries. In response to the additional LNG transportation demand indicated by PETRONAS and other customers, MISC exercised the option for two additional sister vessels with SHI in January 2004. With this exercised option, MISC has six new LNG tankers on order to support the growth strategy for our LNG shipping business. Going forward, MISC will continue to be active in the global shipping market looking for opportunities to further enhance our market position and expand our customer base.

Global LNG trade, driven mainly by increasing gas demand and declining domestic natural gas resources in gas consuming countries in East Asia, Europe and North America, expanded by 10% in 2003 to 123 million metric tonnes. Though LNG demand in the traditional Asian markets (Japan, Korea and Taiwan) grew by 9% in 2003, demand growth in the Atlantic market, especially in the USA and Spain, was much stronger. The USA recorded a 129% increase in LNG imports from 4.8 million metric tonnes to nearly 11.0 million metric tonnes in 2003. During the year, MISC received and delivered two more Puteri Satu vessels, namely Puteri Nilam Satu in September 2003 and Puteri Zamrud Satu in January 2004, to MLNG Tiga Sdn Bhd to start their 20-year time charters. MISC also signed shipbuilding contracts for two new 145,000 cubic metres LNG tankers with Samsung

PETROLEUM SHIPPING BUSINESS


The first half of the year was relatively weak for the petroleum tanker market due to slower demand for oil. However, the sluggish market made a spectacular comeback with strong freight rates recorded from November 2003 to the end of the financial year. The strong tanker demand was evident on the back of increased global oil demand driven by the stronger global economic growth and the onset of Autumn/Winter seasonal demand. On 22 July 2003, MISC concluded the acquisition of AET from Neptune Orient Line. The strategic acquisition of AET increased MISCs Aframax fleet by 29 vessels, propelling MISC to become the second largest Aframax tanker operator in the world with 39 Aframax vessels. The larger fleet provides MISC with the critical mass it requires to better serve its customers globally. With the AET acquisition, MISC also owns three Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs), after it took delivery of Bunga Kasturi to service a ten-year time charter with PETRONAS in April 2003. On the commercial side, FY2003/2004 was a busy period for our petroleum shipping business. We successfully renewed time charter contracts for two of our clean petroleum product carriers, a contract of affreightment (COA) with ExxonMobil for one Aframax vessel, and one time charter contract with PETRONAS. Further, we secured a one year COA with PETRONAS Trading Corporation (PETCO) to transport fuel oil from Europe to the Far East via a charteredin VLCC. In October 2003, MISC formed a joint venture company, MISC Nigeria Limited, to explore petroleum shipping business opportunities in Nigeria. Initiatives to operationalise Bakkah Shipping Company commenced in February 2004 to develop and realize tanker business opportunities among members of the Organization of Islamic Countries. In FY2003/2004 through AET, we signed a COA with Bitumenes Orinoco (BITOR) to transport orimulsion from Venezuela for distribution to Asia. We also entered into a new lightering COA with ATMI (US subsidiary of Total), and entered into a new voyage COA with FINAVAL to ship orimulsion from Venezuela to Italy. Moving ahead, MISC plans to grow its petroleum fleet further in line with its focus on the energy transportation sector. Currently, MISC has two new Aframax vessels and six new VLCCs on order. With its plans to grow further its global petroleum fleet, develop strategic joint ventures and alliances, and explore new business opportunities in selected markets like Europe, USA, India, Africa and China, MISC is moving closer to become the leading global energy transporter.

CHEMICAL SHIPPING BUSINESS


In FY2003/2004, the demand for chemical shipping was strong driven mainly by Chinas growth. However, this resulted in only marginally higher freight rates due to excess capacity in the market. We continued to see a shift in supply centers for petrochemical products from Europe to the Middle East/Arabian Gulf, which adversely affected our Far EastEurope chemical shipping service.

To overcome the challenges in the market, marketing efforts were stepped up which has shown results. During the year, we secured COAs with Vinmar International, IOI Edible Oils, Degussa AG, Iffcochart, Reliance Industries and Kaukomarkkinat.
MISC CHEMICAL TANKERS CARGO QUANTITY LIFTED FOR FY 2003/04 Vegetable oil vs Chemicals in metric tonnes

In addition, MISC secured time charter contracts for two chemical tankers with Kuok Oil. With the marginally stronger freight rate environment coupled with business growth, more efficient scheduling and selective increase of term to spot business, the chemical tanker business returned to profitability.

For the coming year, against the backdrop of a better global economic outlook and slower increase in capacity, we are confident that freight rates will at least maintain at current levels. As such, strategies have been put in place to exploit the positive

market environment. We are also studying the opportunity to increase our capacity in order to gain market share in the chemical/vegetable oil market.

field development. We have identified several feasible FPSO/FSO projects in the region, which we target to capture a portion.

Offshore Business In April 2003, MISC commenced its offshore business with the chartering of a Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) facility to Murphy Sarawak Oil Company Ltd. Later in the year, MISC marked another milestone with the delivery of our first Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility in March 2004. MT Bunga Kertas was one of our older petroleum tankers, which was converted into an FPSO facility by Malaysia Shipyard and Engineering Sdn Bhd (MSE) last year. With its completion, FPSO Bunga Kertas was delivered and deployed in Malaysian waters to begin serving a fifteen-year charter with PETRONAS. The offshore business provides MISC the opportunity to utilize our older petroleum tankers, which could be converted into FPSO/FSO facilities, thereby extending their useful life. It also offers synergistic opportunity within the Group as most of the engineering and conversion work could be performed by MSE. MISC is currently studying opportunities to enhance our presence in the Asian FPSO/FSO market by offering floating oil and gas terminal solutions for deepwater

To support this business development initiative, MISC will focus on strengthening the required technical and commercial capabilities. We have identified a leading global FPSO/FSO player to be our partner in our future business endeavours. With the relevant critical experience and capabilities in place, MISC aims to be a major player in the Asian FPSO/FSO market within the next five years. Heavy Engineering Business In March 2004, MISC completed the acquisition of an additional 22% of MSE Holdings Sdn Bhd (MSEH), the holding company of MSE, making MSEH a 65% subsidiary of MISC. This is part of MISCs strategy to strengthen and grow its heavy engineering business as well as realize the synergistic opportunities within MISC and the PETRONAS Group as a whole. During the year, MSE successfully delivered 13 oil and gas engineering projects and repaired 105 ships valued at over RM680 million. MSE also delivered two major FPSO/FSO conversion projects with a combined value of around RM240 million. The delivery of the conversion projects marked the success of pooling resources and expertise from MSEs ship repair, shipbuilding and engineering divisions to undertake more sophisticated projects. The main focus for MSE in the next financial year will be on enhancing its competitive edge through higher productivity and technical capabilities. MSE plans to undertake high value-added repair activities such as LNG carrier repairs and dry-docking and build up its project management capabilities for FPSO/FSO conversion especially for larger and more sophisticated deepwater projects. MISC will reposition MSE as its heavy engineering arm focused on supporting both upstream oil and gas projects and downstream repair and maintenance projects in addition to traditional businesses of ship repairing, conversions and ship maintenance.

INTEGRATED LINER LOGISTICS BUSINESS


MISCs Integrated Liner Logistics programmes that were positive to their bottom lines. Although the Liner market improved significantly in 2003, shipping lines had to grapple with increasing operating costs including higher costs of fuel, marine insurance and charter hire. These posed major challenges to the shipping lines, which had to focus on maximizing cargo yield and minimizing operational costs. During the year, rate restoration programmes were implemented for the Far EastEurope services and Australasia services. With these increased freight rates, coupled The Liner business experienced a turnaround in FY2003/2004 with the strengthening of global trade. Demand for container shipping grew by 10.4% compared to capacity growth of 7.3% the previous year. The higher container shipping demand enabled shipping lines to implement rate restoration with increases in container liftings and improved cost competitiveness, Liner Logistics succeeded in lifting its results into positive territory for these two trade services in FY2003/2004. MISC also continued to rationalize and optimize its Intra-Asia services. Despite these initiatives, the intensely competitive Intra-Asia market continued to be a difficult market for MISC in 2003. In the domestic market, the Perdana service was also restructured but this service continued to record deficits in FY2003/2004 under a highly competitive environment characterized by many small operators. However, with the improving Malaysian economy, this Perdana service is expected to turn in better results in the coming year.

BULK SHIPPING BUSINESS


Financial year 2003/2004 was an exceptional year for the bulk shipping business as a series of unexpected spikes in the bulk freight rates was witnessed. Freight rates remained strong at very high levels, doubling in the second half compared to the first half of the year. The strong upward movements of the freight rates were driven mainly by strong demand for bulk shipping in China, lower supply growth of bulk shipping capacity in the market and port congestion in major bulk ports in Australia, Brazil and China. During the year, MISC successfully concluded several bulk business contracts. In September 2003, MISC signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Crescent Shipping to jointly explore potential business opportunities in India. The COA of MV

In addition, MISC was awarded a three-year COA by Tenaga Nasional Berhad to carry 1 million tonnes of coal to Janamanjung power station commencing 1 January 2004. In line with our focus on the energy transportation sector and to capitalise on the strength of prices of second-hand bulk ships, we identified 15 carriers which were subsequently disposed in April and May 2004. Going forward, the outlook for bulk shipping business remains favourable. Though freight rates have declined from the

MISCs main focus will be on building capabilities and leaders within the organisation to support MISCs global growth strategy.

HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (HRM) SERVICES


During the financial year, MISC focused on developing, strengthening and optimizing the human resource (HR) infrastructures and capabilities as we believe that investment in human capital has direct impact on our value creation strategy. Various HR initiatives were successfully implemented particularly the integrated skill and competency development programmes with a balanced mix of technical, business and people skills to produce a pool of quality and effective workforce. To ensure that MISC has a continuous pool of Malaysian officers, we sponsored 258 Malaysians to pursue the cadetship and rating programmes in ALAM. This number is likely to increase in line with MISCs growth strategy. MISC also organized training programmes to address softer issues such as personal wellness and teambuilding. These programmes assisted in fostering a spirit of cohesiveness among employees and created a level of awareness for healthy living. In the past year, MISCs workforce was enlarged with the acquisition of AET and MSE. This added challenges to the HR function whereby we had to streamline and realign policies and procedures as well as provide change management support to address post acquisition workforce issues. During the financial year, MISC completed its

FLEET MANAGEMENT SERVICES


With the buoyant shipping market in FY2003/2004, we were challenged to ensure optimal commercial availability of our vessels without compromising on their operational efficiency. The enlarged MISC fleet with the acquisition of AET and the deliveries of new vessels in FY2003/2004 added complexity to the way we managed our assets, but we were successfully guided and by our strategic theme of Continuous Cost Competitiveness Asset Reliability. In line with our aim of being a cost competitive operator, we moved most of the dry-docking of our bulk vessels to the Peoples Republic of China, where the cost for steel renewal, blasting and cargo hold repairs were more attractive. In the areas of procurement, MISCs strategy to perform planned periodic bulk purchases of store supplies resulted in realizing higher volume discounts and lower processing costs. Other cost reduction initiatives implemented during the year included continuous in-depth studies of vessels operational efficiency, and optimization of operational manning level and vendor management system. To ensure MISCs asset reliability, we are in the process of implementing the computerised Management Integrated System Asset for

Maintenance on MISC vessels. With the planned completion of AMOS implementation in the coming year, MISC will be able to better manage its vessels, increase vessel availability and reduce downtime. During the year, we also embarked on a safety campaign towards achieving Zero Accident and Incident to inculcate a safety culture amongst MISC ship personnel. With improved control in managing our assets through AMOS and better safety awareness among MISC seafarers, we embarked on programmes to ensure that all our vessels conform to ship security requirements in response to increased threats of terrorism and piracy. MISC commenced International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) certification in January 2004 and completed the exercise in May 2004, ahead of the 1 July 2004 deadline. MISC is proud to be the first company in Malaysia to be awarded with the International Ship Security Certificate on 19 January 2004. For the coming year, MISC will ensure that competent and experienced personnel are employed to serve both onboard the vessels and onshore. With that in mind, MISC will implement the revised Shipboard Management System, utilize AMOS and adopt best industry practices wherever practicable. Through these initiatives, MISC is confident that the condition and performance of all MISC vessels will be at optimal operating standards at all times to meet MISCs customer requirements.

BUSINESS TRANSFORMATION
The current Information Technology (IT) phase of our business transformation project is now at its final leg with target completion in FY2004/2005. Each of the four IT systems implemented will assist MISCs key business units to be more customer focused and enhance operational efficiencies through the right business processes and controls. The Non-Liner system went live successfully in October 2003. The Non-Liner System that was rolled out for the petroleum, chemical, bulk and LNG shipping businesses will assist the various business units in planning better fleet utilization while focusing on customer service through better chartering and operational efficiencies. Phase 2A of the Liner System went live in September 2003. The Liner and Land Logistics systems will substantially change the way we operate and manage our Integrated Liner Logistics business, making us more customer focused and operationally efficient. Full completion of the Liner system (Phase 2B) is targeted before the end of 2004. The end-to-end integrated logistics business supported by the underlying Liner and Land Logistics systems will enable MISC to offer Total Supply Chain Management Services to its customers. The AMOS System, comprising three modules was launched in November 2003. In FY2003/2004, we installed the system on board 51 vessels and we are in the process of rolling out the system to the remaining vessels. The AMOS System will facilitate total lifecycle maintenance of the vessels from preventive and predictive maintenance onboard to dry-docking of the vessels. With the completion of the IT projects, MISC will be better positioned in the global marketplace to capitalize on the opportunities presented to create value for its stakeholders.

FUTURE OUTLOOK
The shipping business outlook for the near future appears bright with freight rates projected to remain firm for the coming year. Demand for logistics services is expected to be strong in tandem with world economic growth. Despite optimism shown in the economy and shipping market, MISC will continuously monitor their development and strategize its operations accordingly. Going forward, MISC is poised to grow its targeted energy transportation business particularly in Europe and the Atlantic area (markets west of Suez). Special emphasis will also be made to grow the LNG shipping business in Europe and the USA beyond the two third party contracts with Gaz de France and J&S Cheniere. MISC will also explore and expand its reach into the Mediterranean, African and Indian markets for the petroleum shipping business capitalising on AETs strength in the Atlantic Basin. To this end, a new Regional Business Office headed by a Senior Management team member has been set up in London to drive the growth. MISC will also concentrate its effort on transforming MSE to be the premier heavy engineering business in the region and building its offshore business (OBU) into a significant regional player. MSE and OBU will focus on servicing the upstream oil and gas sector, leveraging on PETRONAS Groups strengths and business network. The current strategy of focusing on long haul services for the Liner business has worked well for MISC. However, the asset mix of the business will have to be reviewed to ensure long-term business sustainability. In line with the focus of its Liner business, MISC will also expand its land logistics assets to strengthen its integrated liner logistics business, thus expanding its service offering and providing seamless logistics service to its targeted customers in the energy and consumer product sectors. During FY2003/2004, MISC continued to build a strong platform for growth in the energy logistics sector with its enlarged LNG and petroleum fleets, controlling interest in MSE and emerging offshore business. With this continuing strategic focus on the energy transportation segment, improving cost competitiveness and emphasis on developing skills and resources, MISC is positioning itself to realize its vision to become the preferred provider of world-class maritime transportation and logistics services. Appreciation On behalf of Management, we would like to register our highest regard and gratitude to Allahyarham Dato Hj. Mohd Ali bin Hj. Yasin for his exemplary leadership and guidance over the past seven years in orchestrating MISC towards becoming the preferred provider of world-class maritime transportation and logistics services. Though we miss and grieve the loss of Allahyarham Dato Ali, the legacy he left in terms of exceptional commitment, dedication and professionalism will motivate us to continue the excellent work he had done in bringing MISC to its current position as a truly reputable global company. The Management would also like to thank the staff for their commitment and diligence, and our valued clients, the Government, its Agencies and stakeholders for their understanding and support. Last but not least, the Management wishes to express its gratitude to the Chairman, Board of Directors and Board Audit Committee for their guidance. On behalf of the Management Committee,

This commitment has been translated to various process requirement and initiatives which has been rigorously implemented across all Business and Service Units in MISC. The organisation has also been proactively monitoring and following up all incidents, irrespective of severity. The lessons learnt has been incorporated and actioned upon as part of continual improvement. We have also launched the Fleet Management Services Safety Campaign with an objective of achieving Zero Incident Zero Accident.

Our Total Recordable Case Frequency (TRCF) performance has improved with a reduction of Personal Accidents by nearly 15% from the previous year. By industry standards, our incident frequency has also improved with a reduction of incidents by nearly 50% over the last two financial years. No serious incidents have been recorded in the last financial year.

In areas of Security, MISC has always been in compliance with industry requirements and best practices. Thus the introduction of the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) in early 2003 was viewed as an opportunity to further improve our process and procedures. All our Ship Security Plans (SSP) have been approved by the relevant Recognised Security Organisations (RSO). MISC was the first shipowner in Malaysia to be awarded the International Ship Security Certificate (ISSC) when two of our vessels successfully underwent the external certification audit in January 2004. The certification onboard all our vessels were completed ahead of the 1 July 2004 deadline. As part of contribution towards national security and to enhance our preventive measures, we carry out annual integrated anti hijacking drills with the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN). The recent drill was onboard the product tanker M.T. Bunga Kemiri off Lumut and was attended by the Managing Director of MISC and the Fleet Operations Commander of the Royal Malaysian Navy. Risk Management has been given priority in order to ensure structured approach towards risk identification and mitigation. The Maritime Risk Council has reviewed the various risk identified and has incorporated detailed preventive and recovery measures as part of continual improvement. In this financial year, there have been a number of management reviews carried out by our customers. We have since been accorded with improved management rating, which further facilitates employment of our vessels on Time Charters and Contract of Affreighment. Jabatan Laut Malaysia has also successfully audited us under the International Safety Management (ISM) Code requirement. No non-conformities were found during the annual audit, attesting to our commitment and conformance to international safety and environmental requirements.

Corporate Social Responsibility

As a corporate entity, MISC takes its commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) seriously, and has focused on the area of youth development.The company is mindful of its social obligations, especially in the areas of training and development, the creation of employment opportunities and achieving Malaysianisation of our workforce. Ultimately, we want to improve the quality of life for all Malaysians. As the engine of growth propelling Malaysias development as a leading maritime nation, MISC realises fully the importance of socially responsible practices, improving the lives and harnessing the potentials of Malaysian Youth.
Our Contribution to the Nation Growing our Youth in the Maritime Industry MISC believes that it is important to be a loyal partner to the nations development and progress. What better way than to promote and enhance the skills of our youth and put the country at par with other great maritime nations. For the last 30 years, MISC has embraced the role of training and developing skilled manpower in the maritime and heavy engineering industry. Building this pool of skilled manpower is important as it reduces the domestic maritime industrys reliance on foreign manpower and expertise. MISC is committed to training the next generation of mariners and seafarers not just for the Groups advantage but also to the benefit of other seafaring industries in the country. The Groups efforts on this front began with the establishment of the Seamens Training School in Malacca, in collaboration with the Government in 1972. With this, the Cadet Sponsorship Programme was realised an idea that would eventually provide vast opportunities for the Malaysian maritime industry in terms of knowledge, experience and employment. In 1975, the school was upgraded to a Maritime Training Centre, which subsequently in 1981 led to the set up of Akademi Laut Malaysia (ALAM) as the training ground for deck cadets up to the level of Master. Two years later, Marine Engineering was introduced in ALAM, which enables the training of specialized engineers domestically. Today, ALAM is 70% owned by MISC and 30% by PETRONAS. In addition, MISCs heavy engineering business through its subsidiary, Malaysia Shipyard and Engineering (MSE), has not only contributed to the Group as a premier provider of services in Malaysias oil and gas industry, but also become an essential training ground for heavy engineering in the country, simultaneously providing employment opportunities for our youth. The Road to Malaysianisation MISC has actively participated in ALAM with the interest of creating a brighter future for youths while creating employment opportunities in the maritime industry taking the industry and the country to greater heights by having its vessels manned entirely by Malaysians. This policy of Malaysianisation is what MISC aspires to develop and prioritise in its training and development initiatives, while setting an example for other companies and industries. Commitment to Investing in the Youth the Nation's Future MISC spends more than RM16 million annually for the full programme at ALAM, South Tyneside College (United Kingdom) and Politeknik Ungku Omar. Presently, more than 200 students are recruited yearly for the Cadet Sponsorship Programme. Since 1972, the company has taken in some 3,200 deck and engine cadets, providing not just technical know-how, but also an environment to put this knowledge to use. These investments are geared towards facilitating a learning, development and employment ground for young aspirants. MISC is committed to contributing to Malaysia's progress as a maritime nation with the development of competent seafarers. Now, maritime and logistics organisations nationwide also seek the services of those trained in ALAM, hence putting Malaysia on the map in terms of training and developing the next generation of mariners.

MALAYSIA INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING CORPORATION BERHAD (8178-H)

Malaysians have outnumbered expatriates in all categories from Master, Officers, Engineers and Ratings. To-date, MISC has achieved 77% Malaysian Officers and Ratings working onboard Malaysian vessels, while the figure is substantially higher at 90% for the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Fleet. This is especially remarkable, considering that expatriates wholly managed all vessels when MISC embarked on the LNG service in 1980s. MISC is now proud to be the largest single owner-operator of LNG fleet in the world, which is a major boost to the large number of Malaysians working onboard the vessels, considering the opportunities presented to them by the strong growth in world LNG demand for the future. The successful development of Malaysian seafarers together with the development of Malaysian-owned vessels has greatly reduced the nations dependence on foreign seafarers and foreign shipping services respectively. Therefore, the expenditure on invisible trade is reduced while boosting national revenues through foreign exchange earnings. Responsibility to the Maritime Industry As an active member of the Malaysian Shipowners Association (MASA) and the main sponsor of the annual Asia Maritime and Logistics Conference, MISC integrates social concerns with business operations on a voluntary basis, enriching the community and contributing to nation-building. Other Contributions As part of the Groups continuing corporate social responsibility commitment, MISC also contributed to various orphanages, charity homes and other nonprofit organisations as well as business and maritime associations and institutions of higher learning. At MISC, Corporate Social Responsibility is not just a social obligation, but also a way of life.

These classes better prepare employees for overseas postings and ensure improved communication between businesses, both locally and internationally. MISCs Education Assistance Plan is also extended to staff undertaking courses to enhance their work, where all tuition, registration and examination fees are provided for. Committed to Increasing Performance The Performance Management System (PMS) is an appraisal system where the superior and subordinate agree at the beginning of the year on what needs to be accomplished.

Notes To The Financial Statements


31 March 2004
1. CORPORATE INFORMATION The principal activities of the Corporation consist of shipowning, ship operating and other activities related to shipping services. The principal activities of the subsidiaries are described in Note 38. There have been no significant changes in the nature of these activities during the financial year other than the Group is now involved in shipbuilding, ship repairing and heavy engineering works arising from additional acquisition of 22% equity interest in MSE Holdings Sdn. Bhd. group. The Corporation is a public limited liability company, incorporated and domiciled in Malaysia, and is listed on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad. The registered office of the Corporation is located at Level 25, Menara Dayabumi, Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, 50050 Kuala Lumpur. The holding and ultimate holding company of the Corporation is Petroliam Nasional Berhad, a company incorporated and domiciled in Malaysia. The number of employees in the Group and in the Corporation at the end of the financial year were 8,780 (2003: 6,659) and 4,023 (2003: 4,472) respectively. The financial statements were authorised for issue by the Board of Directors in accordance with a resolution of the directors on 24 May 2004. 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (a) Basis of Preparation The financial statements of the Group and of the Corporation have been prepared under the historical cost convention unless otherwise indicated in the accounting policies below. The financial statements comply with the provisions of the Companies Act, 1965 and applicable Approved Accounting Standards in Malaysia. During the financial year ended 31 March 2004, the Group and the Corporation adopted the following Malaysian Accounting Standards Board (MASB) Standards for the first time: MASB 25 Income Taxes MASB 27 Borrowing Costs MASB 29 Employee Benefits The adoption of these MASBs have not given rise to any adjustments to the opening balances of retained profits of the prior and current year or to any material changes in comparatives.

2.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (b) Basis of Consolidation (i) Subsidiaries The consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Corporation and all its subsidiaries. Subsidiaries are those companies in which the Group has a long term equity interest and where it has power to exercise control over the financial and operating policies so as to obtain benefits therefrom. Subsidiaries are deconsolidated from the effective date of any circumstances or events giving rise to the cessation of control over their financial and operating policies. Subsidiaries are consolidated using the acquisition method of accounting except for the acquisition of subsidiaries which meet the criteria for merger, in which case such acquisitions are accounted for using merger accounting principles. Under the acquisition method, the results of subsidiaries acquired or disposed during the year are included in the consolidated income statement from the effective date of acquisition or up to the effective date of disposal, as appropriate. The assets and liabilities of a subsidiary are measured at their fair values at the date of acquisition and these values are reflected in the consolidated balance sheet. The difference between the cost of an acquisition over the fair value of the Groups share of the net assets of the acquired subsidiary at the date of acquisition is included in the consolidated balance sheet as goodwill or reserve arising on consolidation and is amortised or credited to income statement on a straight line basis over 5 to 20 years. Where an indication of impairment exists, the carrying value of goodwill is written down immediately to its recoverable amount. When the merger method is used, the cost of investment in the Corporations book is recorded at the nominal value of shares issued and the difference between the carrying value of the investment and the nominal value of shares acquired is treated as merger reserve or merger deficit. The results of the companies being merged are included as if the merger had been effected throughout the current and previous financial years. Intragroup transactions, balances and resulting unrealised gains are eliminated on consolidation and the consolidated financial statements reflect external transactions only. The gain or loss on disposal of a subsidiary is the difference between net disposal proceeds and the Groups share of its net assets together with any unamortised balance of goodwill and exchange differences which were not previously recognised in the consolidated income statement. Minority interest is measured at the minorities' share of the post acquisition fair values of the identifiable assets and liabilities of the acquiree.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (b) Basis of Consolidation (continued) (ii) Associated Companies Associated companies are those companies in which the Group has a long term equity interest and is in a position to exercise significant influence. Significant influence is the power to participate in the financial and operating policy decisions of the associated companies but not control over those policies. Investments in associated companies are accounted for in the consolidated financial statements by the equity method of accounting based on the audited or management financial statements of the associated companies. Under the equity method of accounting, the Group's share of post acquisition profits less losses of associated companies during the year is included in the consolidated income statement. The Group's interest in associated companies is carried in the consolidated balance sheet at cost plus the Group's share of post-acquisition retained profits or accumulated losses and other reserves as well as goodwill on acquisition. Goodwill or reserve arising on acquisition of associated companies is amortised or credited to the income statement on a straight line basis over 5 years or its estimated useful life, whichever is shorter. Where an indication of impairment exists, the carrying value of goodwill is written down immediately to its recoverable amount. Unrealised gains on transactions between the Group and the associated companies are eliminated to the extent of the Groups interest in the associated companies. Unrealised losses are eliminated unless cost cannot be recovered. (c) Other Intangible Assets Other intangible assets represent the consideration paid in respect of charter hire contracts of subsidiaries at the date of acquisition and are stated at the fair values of the charter hire contracts based on valuations performed by independent professional valuers. Where the aggregate of the fair values of separable net assets of the subsidiaries exceeds the fair value of purchase consideration, the fair value of the charter hire contract is reduced by this amount. Other intangible assets are amortised on a straight line basis over the remaining period of the respective charters ranging from 15 to 20 years or the estimated remaining useful lives of the vessels concerned, whichever is shorter. Where an indication of impairment exists, the carrying value of intangible assets is written down immediately to its recoverable amount. (d) Investments in Subsidiaries and Associated Companies Investments in subsidiaries and associated companies are stated at cost less impairment losses. Where an indication of impairment exists, the carrying value of investment is written down immediately to its recoverable value. On disposal of such investments, the difference between net disposal proceeds and their carrying amounts is recognised in the income statement.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (e) Ship, Property and Equipment and Depreciation Ship, property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses. Where an indication of impairment exists, the carrying value of the asset is assessed and written down immediately to its recoverable amount. Freehold land, ships under construction, systems work in progress and construction in progress are not depreciated. Leasehold land is depreciated on a straight line basis over the period of the respective leases which range from 15 to 99 years. Depreciation of ships under construction commences from the date of delivery of the ships. Depreciation of ships in operation is provided on a straight line basis to write off the cost of each ship to its residual value over its estimated useful life. Depreciation of ship, property and equipment is provided for on a straight line basis to write off the cost of each asset to its residual value over the estimated useful life at the following annual rates: Ships constructed Ships purchased Buildings Containers Motor vehicles Furniture, fittings and equipment Computer software and hardware Trailers and prime movers Plant and machinery Tugboats, engines and pushers Drydocks and waste plant Loose tools Lightering and warehouse equipment 20 years Remaining useful life 2% - 3% 8% - 15% 20% - 33.3% 10% - 33.3% 15% - 33.3% 10% - 20% 10% - 20% 6.7% - 20% 2% - 10% 20% 12.5% - 50%

Freehold land and building of the Corporation have not been revalued since they were revalued in 1984. The directors have not adopted a policy of regular revaluations of such assets. As permitted under the transitional provisions of IAS 16 (Revised): Property, Plant and Equipment, these assets continue to be stated at their original valuation less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses. Upon the disposal of an item of ship, property or equipment, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount is charged or credited to the income statement.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (f) Inventories Inventories which comprise bunkers, lubricants, spares, raw materials and consumable stores are held for own consumption and are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is arrived at on the weighted average basis and comprises the purchase price and other direct charges. In prior years, the Group recognised the cost incurred on spares to the income statements. With effect from the current financial year, the Group changed its accounting policy on spares by capitalising as inventories and charging to income statement as and when used. The change in accounting policy has been applied to current and future years as the effect to the opening balances of retained profits of the Group and the Corporation for the prior and current year cannot be reasonably determined. (g) Cash and Cash Equivalents For the purposes of the cash flow statements, cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand and at bank, deposits at call and short term highly liquid investments which have an insignificant risk of changes in value, net of outstanding bank overdraft. (h) Operating Lease Leases of assets under which all the risks and benefits of ownership are effectively retained by the lessor are classified as operating leases. Operating lease expenses are recognised in the income statement on a straight-line basis over the lease term. (i) Provisions for Liabilities Provisions for liabilities are recognised when the Group has a present obligation as a result of a past event and it is probable that an outflow of resources embodying economic benefits will be required to settle the obligation, and a reliable estimate of the amount can be made. Provisions are reviewed at each balance sheet date and adjusted to reflect the current best estimate. Where the effect of the time value of money is material, the amount of a provision is the present value of the expenditure expected to be required to settle the obligation. Provision for warranty is set up based on service histories to cover the estimated liability that may arise during the warranty period. Any surplus provision will be written back at the end of the warranty period while additional provision is made as necessary.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (j) Income Tax Income tax on the profit or loss for the year comprises current and deferred tax. Current tax is the expected amount of income taxes payable in respect of the taxable profit for the year and is measured using the tax rates that have been enacted at the balance sheet date. Deferred tax is provided for, 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. In principle, deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all taxable temporary differences and deferred tax assets are recognised for all deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and unused tax credits to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporary differences, unused tax losses and unused tax credits can be utilised. Deferred tax is not recognised if the temporary difference arises from goodwill or negative 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 measured at the tax rates that are expected to apply in 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 in 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 or negative goodwill. Prior to the adoption of MASB 25: Income Taxes on 1 April 2003, deferred tax was provided for using the liability method in respect of significant timing differences and deferred tax assets were not recognised unless there was reasonable expectation of their realisation. This change in accounting policy has not given rise to any adjustments to the opening balance of retained profits of the prior and current year or to changes in comparatives. (k) Dry Docking Expenditure Dry docking expenditure is recognised in the income statement as and when incurred. (l) Employee Benefits (i) Short term benefits Wages, salaries, bonuses, commission and social security contributions are recognised as an expense in the year in which the associated services are rendered by employees of the Group. Short term accumulating compensated absences such as paid annual leave are recognised when services are rendered by employees that increase their entitlement to future compensated absences, and short term non-accumulating compensated absences such as sick leave are recognised when the absences occur.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (l) Employee Benefits (continued) (ii) Defined contribution plan As required by law, companies in Malaysia make contribution to the state pension scheme, the Employees Provident Fund ("EPF"). Some of the Group's foreign subsidiaries make contributions to their respective countries' statutory pension schemes. Such contributions are recognised as an expense in the income statement as incurred. Contributions in respect of defined contribution schemes are recognised in the income statement when they are payable to PETRONAS Retirement Benefit Fund for eligible employees. The details of the scheme are disclosed in Note 36. (iii) Termination benefits The Group pays termination benefits in cases of termination of employment within the framework of a separation scheme. Termination benefits are recognised as a liability and an expense on accrued basis. (m) Revenue Recognition Revenue is recognised when it is probable that the economic benefits associated with the transaction will flow to the enterprise and the amount of the revenue can be measured reliably. (i) Freight income Freight receivable and the relevant discharge costs of cargoes loaded onto ships up to the balance sheet date are accrued for in the financial statements. (ii) Charter income The results of ships employed and voyage charter and that of other services rendered by the Group are accounted for on a time accrual basis. (iii) Lightering income Income on lightering charges is recognised on percentage of completion of voyages calculated on a discharge-to-discharge basis. The voyage revenue is recognised evenly over the period from a vessel's departure from its previous discharge point to its projected departure from its next discharge point. (iv) Other shipping related income Revenue from services rendered is recognised net of service taxes and discounts as and when the services are performed.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (m) Revenue Recognition (continued) (v) Construction contracts Where 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 is measured by reference to the proportion of contract costs incurred for work performed to date to the estimated total contract costs. Where the outcome of a construction contract cannot be estimated reliably, contract revenue is recognised to the extent of contract costs incurred that it is probable will be recoverable. Contract costs are recognised as expenses in the period in which they are incurred. When it is probable that total contract costs will exceed total contract revenue, the expected loss is recognised as an expense immediately. When costs incurred on construction contracts plus recognised profits (less recognised losses) exceeds progress billings, the balance is shown as amount due from customers on contracts. When progress billings exceed costs incurred plus recognised profits (less recognised losses), the balance is shown as amount due to customers on contracts. (vi) Dividend income Dividend income is recognised when the shareholders' right to receive payment is established. (n) Foreign Currencies (i) Foreign currency transactions Transactions in foreign currencies are converted into Ringgit Malaysia at rates of exchange ruling at the date of the transaction. At each balance sheet date, foreign currency monetary items are translated into Ringgit Malaysia at exchange rates ruling at that date. Non-monetary items which are carried at historical cost are translated using the historical rate as of the date of acquisition and non-monetary items which are carried at fair value are translated using the exchange rate that existed when the values were determined. All exchange rate differences are taken to the income statement.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (n) Foreign Currencies (continued) (ii) Foreign entities Financial statements of foreign consolidated subsidiaries are translated at year end exchange rates with respect to assets and liabilities, and at average exchange rates with respect to the income statement. All resulting translation differences are taken to the currency translation differences reserve in shareholders equity. On disposal of the foreign entity, such translation differences 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 a foreign entity are treated as assets and liabilities of the Group and translated at the exchange rate ruling at the date of the transaction. The principal exchange rates for every unit of foreign currency ruling at balance sheet date used are as follows: 2004 RM United States Dollar Sterling Pound Australian Dollar EURO Japanese Yen Singapore Dollar (o) Financial Instruments Financial instruments are recognised in the balance sheet when the Group has become a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. Financial instruments are classified as liabilities or equity in accordance with the substance of the contractual agreement. Interest, dividends, gains and losses relating to a financial instrument classified as a liability, are reported as expense or income. Distributions to holders of financial instruments classified as equity are charged directly to equity. Financial instruments are offset when the Group 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. The financial risk management objectives and policies are disclosed in Note 37. (p) Other Investments Other investments are stated at cost less provision for any permanent diminution in value. On disposal of an investment, the difference between net disposal proceeds and its carrying amount is recognised in the income statement. 3.80 6.44 2.64 4.47 0.03 2.20 2003 RM 3.80 6.08 2.25 4.09 0.03 2.19

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (q) Marketable Securities Marketable securities are carried at the lower of cost and market value, determined on an aggregate portfolio basis by category of investments. Cost is determined on the weighted average basis while market value is determined based on quoted market values. Increases or decreases in the carrying amount of marketable securities are recognised in the income statement. On disposal of marketable securities, the difference between net disposal proceeds and the carrying amount is recognised in the income statement. (r) Receivables Trade and other receivables are carried at anticipated realisable values. Bad debts are written off when identified. An estimate is made for doubtful debts based on a review of all outstanding amounts at the balance sheet date. Amount receivable and payable with the same party are offset when they are permissable under the ordinary course of business. (s) Payables Payables are stated at cost which is the fair value of the consideration to be paid in the future for goods and services received. (t) Interest-Bearing Borrowings and Borrowing Costs Interest-bearing bank loans and overdraft are recorded at the face value of loan amount. Borrowing costs comprise debts issuance costs and interest costs. Borrowing costs related to ship, property and equipment under construction are capitalised until the assets are ready for their intended use. All other borrowing costs are recognised in the income statement as an expense in the period in which they are incurred. (u) Non-Convertible Cumulative Redeemable Preference Shares ("NCRPS") NCRPS are classified as long term liability in the balance sheet and the related dividends are recognised in the income statement as interest expense in the period in which they are incurred. (v) Equity Instruments Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Dividends on ordinary shares are recognised in equity in the period in which they are declared.

SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED) (w) Derivative Financial Instruments Derivative financial instruments are not recognised in the financial statements on inception. Interest rate swap contracts Net differentials in interest receipts and payments arising from interest rate swap contracts are recognised as interest income or expense over the period of the contract. Forward foreign exchange contracts Subsequent to the acquisition of MSE Holdings Sdn. Bhd., the Group was involved in 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 gains and losses arising on contracts entered into as hedges of anticipated future transactions are deferred until the date of such transaction, at which time they are included in the measurement of such transactions. All other exchange gains and losses relating to hedge instruments are recognised in the income statement in the same financial year as the exchange differences on the underlying hedged items. Gains and losses on contracts which are no longer designated as hedges are included in the income statement. (x) Repairs and Maintenance Repairs and maintenance costs are recognised in the income statement as incurred. Major renewals and improvements are capitalised. (y) Charter Hire Expenses Charter hire expenses are recognised in the income statement as incurred.

Tax exempt shipping income are derived from the operations of the Group's sea-going Malaysian registered ships under Section 54A of the Malaysian Income Tax Act, 1967 and ships registered outside Malaysia under tax jurisdictions of other countries. The Corporation has sufficient tax exempt income to frank the payment of dividend out of its entire retained profits as at 31 March 2004, subject to agreement with Inland Revenue Board. 9. EARNINGS PER SHARE Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the net profit for the year by the weighted average number of ordinary shares in issue during the financial year.

36. RETIREMENT BENEFITS A subsidiary of the Group, PETRONAS Tankers Sendirian Berhad ("PTSB") contributes monthly to the PETRONAS Retirement Benefit Fund ("the Fund") based on eligible employees monthly salary, less statutory contribution, to finance the retirement benefits payable to eligible employees in accordance with the group retirement scheme of the ultimate holding company. The assets of the Fund are held separately for the Group by the Trustees and the liability of the Fund is determined by the accrued benefit calculated based on Projected Service Liability for eligible employees. The monthly maximum tax allowable contribution is paid to the Fund by the Group. The excess is paid by the Group to a special account in PETRONAS as a provision for retirement benefits. An actuarial valuation of the Fund is conducted by a qualified independent actuary at least once in every three years. The last valuation performed for the Fund was on 31 March 2004. This valuation showed that the fair value of the Fund assets is sufficient to meet the actuarially determined value of vested benefits.

37. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS (a) Financial Risk Management Objectives and Policies The Group is exposed to various risks that are particular to its core business of logistics and maritime. Finance risk can also arise as a consequence of the Group conducting its core businesses that entail financing and/or investment needs. The Group adopts an effective and progressive corporate risk management system to identify, analyse, appraise and monitor the risks facing the Group and to take specific measures to mitigate these risks. The risks can be broadly classified under credit/counterparty risk, interest rate risk, foreign exchange risk and liquidity risk. (i) Credit/Counterparty Risk The credit policy of the Group requires all credit exposures to be measured, monitored and managed proactively. Exposure to credit risk is monitored on an ongoing basis by the Credit Control Committee which is represented by the business units and subsidiaries in the Group. Credit evaluations are performed on customers requiring credit. (ii) Interest Rate Risk The Group's interest rate risks arise from the volatility of the benchmark interest rates both in Ringgit and US Dollar (which are its main borrowing currencies). The Group generally does not take any speculative view on the movement in interest rate and therefore does not actively use interest rate derivative instruments to hedge its exposures. By maintaining a balanced portfolio of floating and fixed interest rate debts in both local and foreign currencies, the risk arising from potential fluctuations in interest rates is mitigated. While the Group does not actively hedge its interest rate risk, the Group has existing interest rate swap contracts arising from its acquisition of a subsidiary in 1998. The interest rate swap contracts convert a portion of its floating interest rate obligations to fixed interest rate obligations. (iii) Foreign Exchange Risk The Group's foreign exchange risks comprise transaction risk which arises from day-to-day requirements to pay and to receive in currencies other than the local currency; foreign exchange exposures arising from debt repayment obligations which are denominated in currency other than the local currency; and structural foreign currency translation exposures arising from investments in foreign subsidiaries and associated companies which are denominated in the currencies where they are domiciled. The Group does not actively use foreign exchange derivative instrument as a means to hedge its transaction risk. The risk is, by and large, naturally hedged through matching, as far as possible, receipts and payments in each individual currency. The Group also borrows in foreign currency (mainly US Dollar) to meet its investment requirements that generate income in the same currency. The pegging of Ringgit to US Dollar by the Central Bank further reduces the transaction risks as far as conversion needs between the two currencies are concerned.

37. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS (CONTINUED) (a) Financial Risk Management Objectives and Policies (continued) (iii) Foreign Exchange Risk (continued) The major foreign currency financial assets and liabilities of the Group and the Corporation denominated in their functional currencies are as follows: Group 2004 RM000 Cash and bank balances United States Dollar Sterling Pound Australian Dollar EURO Receivables United States Dollar Sterling Pound Australian Dollar EURO Payables United States Dollar Sterling Pound Australian Dollar EURO (iv) Liquidity Risk As at 31 March 2004, the Group had at its disposal cash and short term deposits amounting to RM1.9 billion. A long term committed financing facility of USD820 million has been arranged with Japan Bank for International Cooperation to finance the progress payments for contracted capital commitments for 6 LNG vessels and as cash reimbursement for prior payments initially made using the Group's internal funds. In addition, the Group has Ringgit credit facility which can be redrawn until June 2005 amounting to RM1.5 billion. The Group's holdings of cash and short term deposits, together with committed funding facilities and net cash flow from operations, are expected to be sufficient to cover its cash flow needs (excluding merger and acquisition activities) in the next financial year. Any shortfall and additional cash requirements arising from the Group's merger and acquisition activities can be met by additional financing. The Group's strong balance sheet provides it with financial flexibility in determining the optimum financing source. The various options, among others, include bank borrowings, bond issuance and structured financing. (v) Forward Foreign Currency Contracts There are no open and outstanding forward foreign currency contracts entered into by the Group at the balance sheet date. 476,305 17,369 13,013 15,844 39,810 12,889 9,471 4,971 264,572 552 2,844 8,071 34,887 420 1,288 2,983 238,224 14,515 11,174 28,246 80,036 10,185 5,456 16,307 67,299 285 2,897 9,183 45,897 169 1,443 3,311 829,911 13,413 22,979 6,428 83,685 13,709 21,055 5,784 35,001 1,419 9,310 3,520 72,188 3,819 3,950 2,963 2003 RM000 Corporation 2004 2003 RM000 RM000

37. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS (CONTINUED) (b) Fair Values (i) Methods and Assumptions The following methods and assumptions are used to estimate the fair values of the following classes of financial instruments: Cash and Cash Equivalents, Trade and Other Receivables/Payables, Due to/from Group Companies and Associated Companies (trade), and Short Term Borrowings The carrying amounts approximate fair values due to the relatively short term nature of these financial instruments. Marketable Securities The fair value of quoted shares is determined by reference to stock exchange quoted market bid prices at the close of the business on the balance sheet date. Borrowings The fair value of borrowings is estimated using discounted cash flow, based on current incremental lending rates for similar types of lending and borrowing arrangements. Derivative Financial Instruments The fair value of interest rate swaps is calculated as the present value of the estimated future cash flows. Other Financial Assets and Liabilities The fair value of all other financial assets and liabilities is deemed to be equal to their carrying value unless stated otherwise in the relevant notes to the financial statements. (ii) Recognised Financial Instruments The USD floating rate loan approximates the fair value determined using discounted cash flow, based on current interest rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements. The aggregate net fair values of financial assets and liabilities which are not carried at fair value on the balance sheet of the Group and of the Corporation as at 31 March 2004 are represented in the following table: Group Carrying Amount Fair Value RM000 RM000 Corporation Carrying Amount Fair Value RM000 RM000

* The fair value of non-current unquoted shares is not disclosed as it is not practicable to determine the fair value with sufficient reliability. (iii) Unrecognised Financial Instruments EBC Limited, a subsidiary that was acquired in 1998 has interest rate swap contracts to convert a portion of its floating rate interest obligations to fixed rate obligations. Under these interest rate swap contracts, the subsidiary concerned agreed with the counterparties to receive interest at floating rates and to pay interest at a fixed rate of 7.0% per annum, calculated on the notional principal of USD130,000,000 (RM494,000,000). The average floating interest rate on these contracts during the year was 1.17% (2003: 1.4%) per annum. These interest rate swap agreements expire in year 2005. The interest rate swap contracts are secured by a counter-guarantee from certain subsidiaries of EBC Limited and mortgaged on the ships of these subsidiaries. The estimated fair value of the interest rate swap contracts as at 31 March 2004 was USD9,854,000 (RM37,446,000) (2003: USD15,794,000 (RM60,018,000)) and represents the amount the Group would have to pay to terminate the contracts.
