Basis of the External Auditor's Opinion Disclaimer of Conclusion
Modification, Qualification or Emphasis of a Matter as Stated within the External Auditor Opinion Introduction

We have reviewed the accompanying condensed interim statement of financial position of ETIHAD ATHEEB TELECOMMUNICATION COMPANY (the Company) as at 30 June 2019, and the related condensed interim statements of profit or loss and other comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash flows for the three month period then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes .Management is responsible for the preparation and presentation of these condensed interim financial statements in accordance with International Accounting Standard (34) Interim Financial Reporting that is endorsed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on these condensed interim financial statements based on our review.

Scope of Review

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements 2410, Review of interim financial information performed by the independent auditor of the entity, that is endorsed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. However, because of the significance of the matters described in the Basis for Disclaimer of Conclusion section of our report, we were not able to express a review conclusion on these condensed interim financial statements.

Basis for Disclaimer of Conclusion

The Companys condensed interim financial statements as at and for the period ended 30 June 2019 have been prepared on a going concern basis of accounting. However, we were unable to conclude whether the use of the going concern assumption basis of accounting to prepare these condensed interim financial statements is appropriate, due to the following factors:

(a) As disclosed in Note 2 of the condensed interim financial statements, the Companys current liabilities exceed its current assets by SAR 663.15 million as at 30 June 2019, and for the period then ended, the Company incurred a net loss of SAR 31.86 million.

(b) The Companys condensed interim statement of financial position includes non-financial assets amounting to SAR 974.11 million as at 30 June 2019. There was a significant change in the market whereby the Communication and information Technology Commission (industry regulator) awarded a unified telecommunications concession to mobile telecommunications network operators. However, the industry regulator did not award the Unified License to the Company. Management has carried out an impairment assessment in accordance with the IAS 36 Impairment of assets, and has determined that the recoverable amounts of the aforementioned assets exceed their carrying amounts as at 30 June 2019 and hence no impairment loss has been recognized. Managements impairment assessment is highly dependent on a number of subjective judgements and assumptions about future business performance. Certain assumptions made by management in the impairment review are key judgements, including deferral of payments to key suppliers, cash flows, overall long-term growth rates and discount rate. The impairment review includes the assumption that the Company will acquire ongoing financial and technical support from its key suppliers to implement the business plan. However, as of the date of approval of the condensed interim financial statements, a binding agreement has not been signed with the key suppliers, confirming their continued financial and technical support, including acceptance of deferment of payments. Moreover, the business plan is highly sensitive to changes in the revenue and the operating cost growth rates and any reasonably possible change in these assumptions could lead to the erosion of headroom in the impairment of assessment.

(c) The Company has an overdue balance owed to its key supplier amounting to SAR 668.22 million as at 30 June 2019. The Company has contacted the key supplier with the intention of entering into an agreement to restructure the repayments of the amounts owed to them. The discussions with the key supplier are still ongoing.

The condensed interim financial statements have been prepared using the going concern assumption basis of accounting as the Board of Directors are of the view that the Company will be able to successfully complete the restructuring of the repayment terms of the key supplier as discussed in Note 2 of the condensed interim financial statements. However, we are unable to conclude whether the use of going concern assumption basis of accounting to prepare these condensed interim financial statements is appropriate as the outcome of the restructuring has yet to be satisfactorily concluded at the date of these condensed interim financial statements and is inherently uncertain. If the going concern basis of accounting is not appropriate and the condensed interim financial statements were presented on a realization basis, the carrying value of assets and liabilities may be materially different from that currently recorded in the condensed interim statements of financial position. If the Company is unable to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future, the Company may be unable to discharge its liabilities in the normal course of the business and adjustments may have to be made to reflect the situation that assets may need to be realized other than in the normal course of the business and at amounts which could differ significantly from the amounts at which they are currently recorded in the condensed interim statement of financial position. In addition, the Company may have to reclassify its non-current assets and non-current liabilities as current. No such adjustments have been made to these condensed interim financial statements.
