its portfolio of investments in
properties and securities to achieve

Chairman’s statement
In 2012, the world was confronted
with subdued growth and
weak demand mainly from
western economies. In Asia, a
low interest rate environment
coupled with an abundance of
liquidity fuelled asset prices. As a
result, earnings for the financial
year ended 31 December 2012
increased 50% to $120.0m,
mainly from higher fair value
gains on investment properties.
Group revenue increased 5% to
$139.3m, contributed mainly
by higher sales of Tiger Balm
products. The 2012 performance
also benefited from exceptional
gains by associated companies.
Healthcare Division ended the
year with higher sales of $92.0m
(2011: $81.4m), supported by
growth in certain key Asian
markets. Profits improved
to $17.2m (2011: $15.6m).
Excluding the impairment
2
charge on Chengdu Oceanarium
in the previous year, Leisure
Division improved its profit by
11% to $11.9m (2011: $10.7m).
Property Division enjoyed stable
occupancy rates with profit of
$12.9m (2011: $13.1m).
HIGHLIGHTS OF
OPERATIONS
Healthcare Division improved
its packaging worldwide. It also
focused its product offerings to
consumers with different needs,
such as the young and active
individuals. Targeted marketing
efforts included online campaigns
to boost sales in key markets,
riding on the strong Tiger Balm
brand. New product launches
including variants of Tiger Balm
plaster, Tiger Balm Mosquito
Repellant patches and Tiger
Balm Neck and Shoulder Rub
were well received by consumers.
Cost pressures remained acute,
particularly from the raising
of minimum wage rates in
various parts of Asia as well as
the increase in raw material
prices. More countries imposed
stricter regulatory compliance
on our products, resulting in
higher compliance costs in
addition to longer timeframe
for approvals.
Leisure Division saw heightened
competition as new tourist
attractions came on stream both
in Singapore and Thailand. A
tight labour market in Singapore,
compounded by increasing
demand for frontline and
specialized personnel put further
pressures on margins. Underwater
World Singapore received fewer
visitors as a result of stiffer
competition. Underwater World
Pattaya, however, enjoyed
healthy growth with the launch
of a new jellyfish exhibit during
the year.
2013 Business Outlook
and Strategy
Hua Han Bio-Pharmaceutical
Holdings Limited (“Hua Han”),
the Group’s Hong Kong-listed
associate, continued to perform
well. Its sales increased by more
than 10% for their financial year
ended 30 June 2012. There were
also exceptional gains during
the year from the disposal of
Hua Han’s associated company.
In view of the current state of
the global economy, the Group
anticipates challenging times.
Cost pressures and competitive
forces would continue to affect
bottom lines. The Healthcare
Division is well-positioned to
ride on growth in key Asian
markets, where consumers
have increasing purchasing
p o w e r. A n e w a n d l a r g e r
plant in Xiamen China will
increase capacity and improve
efficiency. The Leisure Division
will review expansion plans at
Underwater World Pattaya to
attract more local and foreign
visitors. Underwater World
Singapore, which has provided
many years of good returns, will
face greater pressures with the
opening of newer attractions
in Singapore and the region.
DIVIDEND
The Board recommends a second
and final tax exempt (onetier) dividend of 14 cents per
share. Together with the interim
dividend of 6 cents paid last
September, the total dividend
per share for financial year ended
31 December 2012 is 20 cents
per share, the same as that in
2011. A bonus issue is proposed
on the basis of one Bonus Share
for every ten existing ordinary
shares held.
The Group will continue to proactively seek new investments.
Haw Par Corporation Limited — annual report 2012
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
On behalf of the Board, I would
also like to thank management
and staff for their hard work and
dedication, and our shareholders
and business associates for their
continuing support.
Mr Reggie Thein has decided
not to seek re-appointment at
the coming Annual General
Meeting. The Board would
like to thank him for his past
contributions to the Group.
I would also like to express my
deepest gratitude to my fellow
Board members for their wise
counsel and guidance in the

The official launch of Tiger Balm
in Myanmar in September 2012.
Increasing
importance
of social
media in the
marketing mix.
Our performance for 2012 showed
a healthy improvement over the
previous year despite facing many
challenges in some of the key
markets we compete in. The political
and economic crisis in many of
the countries in the Middle East
continued to hamper our business
while the weakening of the US
dollar and the Rupee against the
Singapore dollar also adversely
affected our sales. Additionally,
the cost of raw materials and
production, and other operating
costs continued to rise with the
price of fuel. In mitigating the
escalating cost, price adjustments
for our products were implemented
in several countries during the year.
We managed to achieve good
progress towards building our
business in selected emerging
18
markets. New distributors were
appointed in a number of new
markets. Capitalising on the
potential of the newly opened
Myanmar market, we launched
the Tiger Balm Ointment, Tiger
Balm Plasters and the Tiger Balm
Liniment in Myanmar. Brand
awareness for Tiger Balm was
high and the official launch event
in September was well received,
attended by over 600 retailers,
chemists and invited media.
Leveraging on our success with
the Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder
Rub and Boost in Singapore, we
expanded this range to Germany and
Malaysia. We also introduced the
Tiger Balm Back Pain Patch in Hong
Kong. These line extensions serve
to widen the spectrum of appeal
of Tiger Balm to the consumers.
Distributors from 37 countries participated in the biennial Tiger Balm
International Marketing Conference held in Suzhou, China, in April 2012.
We continued to invest in effective
advertising and promotion
campaigns in all our markets to
protect and grow our market share.
In addition to these traditional
marketing tools, social media, an
increasingly powerful marketing
platform, was incorporated into a
number of our marketing campaigns,
when targeting a media savvy
audience, to further strengthen
our engagement with consumers.
In Malaysia, for instance, many
bloggers with strong following of
professionals and executives online
participated in the promotion of
the Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder
Rub Boost during the launch.
Another instance of our success with
the social media is our Germany’s
Tiger Balm Team - Run to New
York and Run to Hawaii social
media campaigns. The facebook
voting contest to select 3 runners
in Germany to represent Tiger Balm
at the 2012 Honolulu Marathon in
Tiger Balm was a sponsor of Adidas — King of the Road, a
popular race event with a running route that highlights icons in
Singapore’s city area.
Hawaii attracted more than 1,000
creative entries from contestants,
generating an online buzz with
over 11 million views.
Our key success factor for Tiger
Balm’s growth strategy is gaining
consumer trials for our product.
Hence, in the United States, Tiger
Balm partnered with The Avon Walk
for Breast Cancer — a national series
of 39-mile weekend fundraising
events in which participants walk
26 miles on day 1, and then 13
miles on day 2. At the Avon Walk
events in San Francisco, Chicago,
and New York, Tiger Balm samples
were distributed at the end of the
long walks by massage therapists,
chiropractors, podiatrists, and
other medical professional to walk
participants who were in need of
pain relief. In Singapore, Tiger Balm
was a sponsor for the Yellow Ribbon
Run, Adidas — King of the Road,
Great Eastern Women’s Run and
the Standard Chartered Marathon
where Tiger Balm samples were
given out in goodie bags to over
100,000 runners.
It is envisaged that 2013 will
still present us with some of the
challenges that we faced in 2012.
Financial risks and liquidity will be
the key concern in some markets
for our distributors and their
retailers. We will have to manage
these risks carefully. We will, of
course, continue to introduce
the whole range of products into
our existing markets once their
registrations are completed. Our
going-forward strategy to improve
our business is to venture outside
of our topical analgesic segment
into other segments where Tiger
Balm has credence. One area we are
working on is towards developing
products that deliver wellbeing
benefits and launch them under
the Tiger Balm brand name or its
sub-brand Tiger Balm ACTIVE.

Underwater World Singapore
celebrated the Year of the Water
Dragon with Singapore’s First
Underwater Dragon Dance.
Resilience is the
name of the
game while we
set our sight
on building a
basket of leisure
offerings in the
region.
Underwater World Singapore
Underwater World Singapore
(UWS) continued to face enormous
challenges on different fronts in
2012. A sluggish global economy
had its effects on the overall tourism
performance in Singapore. The
strong Singapore dollar coupled
with high hotel rates adversely
affected traditional tourist markets
that UWS serves. Sentosa, where
UWS is situated, was under pressure
from new and strengthening tourism
clusters in Singapore and Malaysia.
An aquarium newly opened at the
integrated resort in Sentosa since
late November also presented direct
competition to UWS.
Despite these turbulent market
conditions, the negative impact on
UWS’ bottom-line was less severe
22
than expected as it planned ahead
and took swift action to manage the
competition, increase productivity
and reduce operating cost. UWS
also continued to experience
growth in visitor numbers from
certain key markets.
To counter the competition from
new and existing key attractions,
UWS expanded its sales channels
through close collaborations with
trade partners to reach potential
visitors, while, at the same time,
sustained mindshare through
investment in advertising spend
and increased public relations
activities.
During the Chinese New Year in
2012, UWS transformed its iconic
One of Singapore’s Top 3 enrichment experiences, the
Living in the Ocean Sleepover programme at Underwater
World Singapore is an underwater night adventure
popular with local and overseas school groups.
Underwater Tunnel into an 83-metre
�Water Dragon’ to celebrate the
Year of the Water Dragon, a oncein-60-year occurrence based on
the lunar calendar. While in the
tunnel, visitors were treated to
Singapore’s first underwater dragon
dance performance by UWS divers
using a customised waterproof
dragon. The event captured media
attention and made headlines in
mainstream newspapers.
The unique pink dolphin, famous
for its �bubbly pink’ coat, and
the opportunities for swims and
interactions at the Dolphin Lagoon,
remained an important differentiator
for UWS. In March 2012, the pink
dolphins were featured in a popular
Chinese reality TV programme on
Singapore’s MediaCorp Channel 8.
In May 2012, UWS launched a
new display — the Zebra Horn
Shark for the mid-year school
holidays. A new addition to the
shark family at UWS, this fascinating
species of shark has beautiful body
bands across their body that share
similarity with Zebra’s stripes.
In conjunction with the new
exhibit, UWS introduced a host
of new activities such as marine
storytelling with eco-crafts lessons
using recycled materials and roving
magic acts, offering family fun for
visitors of all ages.

Upholding the tradition of bringing
Christmas joy to the guests, the
Divers at the UWS Curatorial
Department all suited up as Santas
and Santarinas, fed the sharks and
rays daily at the Tunnel during
the Christmas season. The annual
festive show continued to amaze
adults and children alike while
attracting media interest.
UWS’ continued strive to bring
the most unique experiences to its
guests bore fruit when its Living in
the Ocean Sleepover programme
was selected in October 2012
as one of the 3 finalists for the
2012 Singapore’s Best Enrichment
Experience Award. Organised by
the Singapore Tourism Board,
the Singapore Experience Award
is Singapore Tourism’s highest
accolade, recognising Singapore’s
most outstanding experiences.
Competition is expected to stay
fierce in 2013 with existing and
new players vying for a share of
the tourism pie. In the demanding
year ahead, UWS will intensify sales
and marketing efforts to engage
trade intermediaries in a bid to gain
mindshare and maintain market
share in group travel, as well as
to expand market reach through
developing new sales channels.

Launch of the �Jellyfish World’ at Underwater World Pattaya was
attended by VIPs from the Chonburi Province of Thailand and
garnered media attention.
First of its kind in Thailand, the state-of-the-art jellyfish
display at Underwater World Pattaya incorporates a
lights-and-sounds show.
Underwater World Pattaya
In 2012, Underwater World Pattaya
(UWP) focused on strengthening
the local visitorship and increasing
the market share for foreign tourists
on group tours from emerging
markets.
Concerted efforts and resources
deployed to develop new
exhibits together with intensive
participation in local trade shows
and visits to schools resulted in a
significant increase in local and
school visitorship. With continued
participation in overseas trade
fairs and trade visits to emerging
markets, UWP also saw a significant
rise in the visitor numbers from
these regions.
In collaboration with the Tourism
Authority of Thailand, UWP
participated in several national
and international roadshows to
increase awareness and to promote
ticket sales. Roadshows such as
the local “Amazing Thailand
Grand Sale Fair” in July 2012 and
the overseas “Amazing Thailand
Products Presentation 2012” in
Vietnam proved to be effective
platforms from which UWP was
able to reach out to local and
overseas visitors respectively.
24
Leveraging publicity to raise its
profile and reach, UWP continued
working with media producers
to feature the oceanarium. This
year, UWP was featured in a travel
programme broadcast on True
Vision, the most popular cable
network television in Thailand.
As part of the product renewal
to enhance visitors’ experience
and to boost attendance, UWP
launched three new exhibit zones:
The Jellyfish World, a state-of-theart jellyfish display incorporating
a lights-and-sounds show, a new
trail of the Oceanic Cave featuring
unique marine animals, and a new
contemporary gift shop, known
as the Crystal Palace, offering
unique glittery costume jewelleries
in between the goldfish exhibits.
The addition of new exhibits, in
particular the Jellyfish World —
the first of its kind in Thailand
— renewed the interest of the
locals in UWP and resulted in
more visitations.
The improvements of existing
tourist attractions and the opening
of new attractions in Pattaya, as
well as the direct competition from
other aquariums will continue
to be a threat to UWP. However,
with regular plans to offer new
innovative products and services,
the risks may be mitigated.
To stay ahead of the competition,
UWP will continue to invest
in product renewal to improve
visitors’ experience. Marketing
will continue to be the main focus
area next year as UWP strives
to maintain, if not increase, its
market share in the competitive
tourism industry.
Given the prime location of UWP
and the increasing popularity of
Pattaya City as one of the major
tourist destinations, the prospect
of UWP is deemed to be optimistic.

Haw Par Healthcare (HPH)
continues supporting the “Gift
from the Heart”, a caring labour
movement initiated by the
National Trades Union Congress
of Singapore (NTUC) that brings
relief to low income union workers
and their families. By giving
the landscaping maintenance
contract to The Helping Hands, a
halfway house in Singapore that
helps ex-offenders reintegrate
into society, Underwater World
Singapore (UWS) provided work
opportunities to those in need
of a second chance in life.
HPH offered product sponsorships
from its Tiger Balm range to
various causes in 2012 that
included nursing homes caring
for underprivileged elderly and
aged sick in Singapore such as
the Lions Home for the Elders,
the Evergreen Home and St
Theresa’s Home. These gifts
certainly help relieved the aches
and pains of the residents and
enhancing their wellbeing.

Tunnel in Underwater World Singapore by a

To play a role in building a
compassionate society, HPH
also supported various students’
initiatives to help the less fortunate.
The Project I.Can organised by the
Red Cross Chapter at the Singapore
Management University is one
of the examples in which Tiger
Balm products were distributed
by the university students along
with other necessities to needy
families.
Promoting healthy lifestyles has
always been a priority for HPH.
In 2012, HPH encouraged active
living through its endorsement
of numerous mass runs and sport
events in many markets such as
Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong,
India and the United States.
Events supported by HPH ranged
from small community events to
international marathons with tens
of thousands of participants. The
Avon Walk for Breast Cancer — a
2-day walk that was held in San
Francisco, Chicago and New York
to raise awareness about breast
cancer was one of the events
supported by HPH in 2012.
Furthermore, to encourage the
spirit of sports, HPH supported

In March 2012, UWS supported
two meaningful causes, offering
the gift of happiness to the
elderly and the hospice patients.
In support of the International
Women’s Day, UWS hosted elderly
from 3 senior activity centres
to a unique brunch experience
at its oceanarium. The elderly
enjoyed a special �brunch with
the sharks’ on the 83-metre long
travellator as they passed through
the iconic underwater tunnel.
In addition, roses were given to
the elderly women as a mark of
respect and appreciation for the
contributions of women to the
family and the society.
UWS hosted a number of charity
visits and events in 2012, including
a unique fundraising event by
the students of The Assumption
Pathway School (APS) named
the SCUBA challenge or “Saving
and Conserving the Underwater
Biodiversity through Arts”. The
challenge for the students was to
create underwater paintings in
the UWS tunnel and to sell these
paintings to raise funds for a local
conservation group. In October
2012, 10 students from different
races dived into the UWS tunnel
and sketched various scenes
and marine animals they saw
in the tunnel. Funds raised from
the sales of the paintings were
donated to the Raffles Museum
of Biodiversity Research at the
National University of Singapore.
More than 30 HCA Hospice
patients with life-limiting
conditions, including end-stage
cancer, were hosted at UWS for
a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Their visit allowed UWS to offer
them comfort, happiness and
hope through interacting with
the adorable pink dolphins and
fur seals.

The Group maintained its support
for the conservation of tigers in
several countries. According to
the World Wildlife Fund (WWF),
97% of wild tigers were lost in just
over a century and as few as 3,200
exist in the wild today. To raise
awareness on the importance of
wildlife conservation and to support
conservation education, the Group
continued with its sponsorship
of the Malayan Tiger Exhibit at
the Night Safari and the Leopard
Exhibit at the Singapore Zoo.
Haw Par is a sponsor of the Malayan
Tiger exhibit at the Night Safari in
Singapore since 1995.
As part of the efforts towards
marine conservation, Underwater
World Singapore (UWS) and
Underwater World Pattaya (UWP)
held a series of activities with
the aim to promote awareness,
understanding and appreciation
of the urgent need to conserve
marine biodiversity and to protect
our oceans and the Earth.
In May 2012, UWP collaborated
with Dive Tribe — an environmental
organisation in Pattaya and
Mermaid Kat — former Miss
Germany and a free diver to educate
the public about the dangers of
28
marine debris. Mermaid Kat, in
a mermaid costume, dived into
the UWP’s tunnel without scuba
equipment, while her partner
diver from Dive Tribe unfurled
the conservation message — “Stop
the Pollution”. The goal was to
inspire children and adults alike
to appreciate the beauty of the
ocean’s realm and to play a role
in protecting this fragile planet.
In August 2012, UWP joined hands
again with Dive Tribe and Mermaid
Kat for a “Swim for Sharks” event
in which Mermaid Kat and her
sister mermaids — fellow free divers
dived into the UWP Tunnel to
swim with the sharks and interact
with the visitors while calling for
the conservation of sharks.
The visitors were fascinated by the
appearance of graceful mermaids
at UWP and both events were
widely reported in the global
media.

shark births in 2012, the arrival
of a baby female White-tip Reef
Shark just before Christmas was
particularly memorable. The baby
shark was nicknamed “Sharline”
and was featured in The Straits
Times, Singapore’s main English
language newspaper. Displayed in
its own protected rocky pool during
the festive season, Baby Sharline
attracted visitors’ attention.
Both UWS and UWP continued to
redefine the classroom through their
range of edutainment programmes
that engage students at a whole new
level. At the launch of the Zebra
Horn Shark exhibit in May 2012,
UWS invited student journalists
from Fernvale Primary School to
deepen their understanding about
sharks and marine conservation
through an interview with the
UWS Curator. In 2012, UWP
installed multimedia tablets at
its underwater tunnel, offering
information on its aquatic animals
in a fully interactive manner.
In October 2012, UWS’ Living in
the Ocean Sleepover programme
was selected by the Singapore
Tourism Board as one of the
top 3 enrichment experiences
in Singapore for its unique
programming that enables children
and adults alike to reconnect
with nature and to appreciate the
importance of marine conservation.
Under the collaboration between
UWS and the Singapore Science
Centre, the Sleepover programme
was offered to families as one of
the Open House programmes for
the Singapore Science Festival in
August 2012. Participants toured
the aquarium at night, conducted
scientific experiments and slept
under a blanket of marine fishes
and sharks at the UWS tunnel.
the Bachelor of Environmental
Studies of National University of
Singapore visited UWS for a study
trip. The delegation exchanged
views with the UWS team on
aquarium management.
In 2012, UWS in the continuation
of its pledge to support the Earth
Hour did its part by switching off
the lights on the facades during
Earth Hour, 8.30pm to 9.30pm
on 31 March 2012. To align
with this year’s theme — “Earth
Hour – Uniting People to Protect
the Planet”, UWS incorporated
the Earth Hour’s conservation
message in all its commentaries,
calling for visitors to “Reduce,
Reuse, Recycle”.
UWS also hosted several educational
visits to promote conservation
education. In July 2012, UWS
welcomed some 500 students
who came from around the world
to compete in the International
Biology Olympiad 2012. The
students were treated to a behindthe-scene tour that introduced
them to the science of animal care.
In October 2012, the academic

Overview
Group revenue at $139.3 million
was 5% higher than 2011, with
Healthcare division reporting a
13% growth in revenue. Group
earnings increased by 50% to
$120.0 million mainly due to
exceptional gains from associated
companies and higher valuation
gains of investment properties.
The impairment of our Chengdu
Oceanarium also resulted in lower
earnings last year. Excluding the
valuation gains and the one-off
impairment loss last year, earnings
would have been 4% higher than
2011, attributable to higher profits
from operations and associated
companies, which were offset by
lower investment income received
during the financial year.

With higher earnings registered
for the year, earnings per share
increased to 60.6 cents (2011:
40.3 cents). Net tangible assets
per share increased to $11.31
(2011: $8.98) due to higher market
valuations of available-for-sale
financial assets.

Return on Assets
Employed
The Group applies a Return of
Assets Employed (“ROA”) measure
to evaluate the performance of
its business operations. The ROA
measures profitability of assets
utilised by the various operations.
In 2012, ROA increased from 4.3%
to 5.8%, mainly due to higher
earnings. ROA of healthcare
division improved from 16.7% to
17.4%, a result of higher profits.
The higher ROA of Leisure division
of 17.2% (2011: 13.0%) is mainly
due to higher operating loss of
Chengdu Oceanarium last year.
ROA of Property division at 6.6%
(2011: 7.2%) dipped slightly due
to lower profits and an increase in
valuation of assets. The decline in
ROA of the investment division
from 3.7% to 3.0% is in tandem
with the lower income and larger
asset base due to higher market
valuations.

Corporate Governance
Haw Par Corporation Limited is committed to uphold good corporate governance practices in line with
the principles and guidelines of the Code of Corporate Governance (the “Code”). The following describes
the Group’s corporate governance practices and structures that were in place during the financial year
ended 31 December 2012 (FY 2012).
BOARD MATTERS
Board’s Conduct of its Affairs
The principal responsibilities of the Board include:
•
•
•
•
•
approving strategic plans and annual budgets;
approving major funding, investment and divestment proposals;
ensuring that management establishes and maintains a sound system of internal controls, risk
management, financial reporting and statutory compliance in order to safeguard shareholders’
interests and Group’s assets;
reviewing the performance of management in attaining agreed goals and objectives; and
approving the announcement of financial results and declaring dividends.
All Board members bring their independent judgement, diversified knowledge and experience to bear
on issues of strategy, performance, resources and standards of conduct.
The Board meets at least four times a year to review performance and business strategy of the Group.
Meetings are scheduled in advance. Ad-hoc meetings can be called when there are important and
urgent matters requiring the Board’s consideration and Board approval in writing is sometimes needed
in between scheduled meetings.
The Group has adopted internal guidelines, which set out specific matters requiring Board approval. These
written guidelines also include financial and non-financial limits of authority given to management to
facilitate operational efficiency. These guidelines require Board approval for material transactions such
as joint ventures, mergers and acquisition, adoption of Group risk management policy etc.
The Board has delegated specific responsibilities to four Board Committees, which are the Audit,
Nominating, Remuneration and Investment Committees.

Denotes Chairman of the Board/Board Committee
Mr Chng Hwee Hong retired from the Board on 25 April 2012.
Directors are appointed by way of formal letters of appointment which set out their duties and obligations.
The Company has an orientation program for newly appointed Directors to be briefed on their duties and
responsibilities. The program includes training, where required, and also meetings with key personnel
for directors to understand the Group’s businesses, governance practices, strategic plans and objectives.
Site visits are conducted as needed. The Company arranges and funds training of Directors, if needed.
38
Board Composition
The Board considers its present size of ten directors appropriate for the current scope and nature of the
Group’s operations. The Nominating Committee (“NC”) has reviewed the composition of the present
Board and is satisfied that the directors, as a group, possess core competencies in accounting, finance,
management experience and necessary industry knowledge.
Key information on the Directors, including their date of first appointment, date of last re-appointment
and other directorships and principal commitments, can be found on pages 6 to 9 of this Annual Report.
The NC, having regard to the Code’s guidance for assessing independence, has determined that six of
the Non-Executive Directors, namely Mr Sat Pal Khattar, Dr Lee Suan Yew, Mr Hwang Soo Jin, Mr Reggie
Thein, Dr Chew Kia Ngee and Mr Peter Sim are independent in character and judgement, as indicated
in Table 1 above. There are no relationships or circumstances which are likely to affect, or could appear
to affect, such Non-Executive Directors’ judgements. Although four of the directors, namely Mr Sat
Pal Khattar, Dr Lee Suan Yew, Mr Hwang Soo Jin and Mr Reggie Thein have served as Non-Executive
Directors for more than nine years each, the NC is of the view that their performance, in spite of their
tenure of service, has not diminished their objectivity in their discharge of their duties and they can
continue to be designated as independent directors.
The Board will continue to look for new members to its Board who can serve the Board as older members
step down.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
There is a clear division of the role and responsibilities between the non-executive Chairman of the Board
(“Chairman”) and the Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), who is the son of the Chairman. The Chairman’s
principal role is to lead and guide the Board while the CEO executes the strategic directions set by the
Board and is responsible for the Group’s day-to-day operations. Although the Chairman and CEO are
related, the Board is of the opinion that it is not necessary to appoint a lead independent director as
shareholders may approach any independent director for assistance through the Company Secretary.
Nominating Committee
The NC comprises three members, namely, Mr Sat Pal Khattar, Dr Wee Cho Yaw and Dr Lee Suan Yew.
The majority of the NC, including the chairman of the NC, Mr Sat Pal Khattar, are independent Directors.
The principal responsibilities of the NC are to:
• Appoint and reappoint Directors and key executives, including the CEO;
• Review the composition of the Board and its Board Committees;
• Perform succession planning;
• Assess the independence of Directors;
• Evaluate the performance of the Board and Board Committees; and
• Review training and professional development programs for Directors.
Each year, the NC reviews the composition of the Board as part of its succession planning. The NC assesses
potential candidates, taking into account the existing board composition, the candidate’s background,
qualification, experience, time commitment and his / her ability to contribute to the Board’s collective
skills, knowledge and experience.
Haw Par Corporation Limited — annual report 2012
39
Corporate Governance
The NC makes annual recommendations to the Board on the re-appointment of Directors having regard
to their contributions and performance on a qualitative basis. Each year, one-third of the Board retires
from office by rotation and may submit themselves for re-election. Directors who are above the age of
70 are subject to annual re-appointment at the AGM.
Board Performance
The NC evaluated and assessed the effectiveness of the Board’s performance as a whole taking into
consideration, amongst other things, the Board’s discharge of its principal responsibilities, earnings of
the Group, return on equity and the share price performance of the Company over a five year period.
The NC is of the opinion that the Board as a whole had performed well during the year.
The NC evaluated and reviewed the performance of the Board Committees (except the NC itself). It is
satisfied with the frequency, contents of each meeting and as disclosed in this Annual Report.
The Chairman of the Board and the Chairman of the NC evaluated the collective performance, commitment
and contribution of all Directors on a qualitative basis. They also reviewed the contribution of the
Executive Directors, and are of the view that the performance of each of them has been satisfactory.
In its review of Directors’ ability to commit the necessary hours to the Company’s affairs, the NC
considered whether or not a limit on the number of other listed boards Directors could sit on was
necessary. The NC decided that it was not necessary to prescribe a limit of the number of other boards
that Directors of the Company sit on as the NC believed that the Directors can effectively handle their
responsibilities.
Access to Information
Directors have unfettered access to complete and timely information on the Group’s financials and
operations. Adequate information is provided to Directors to enable them to make informed decisions.
Matters requiring Board’s decision are sent to Directors at least five working days prior to Board meetings.
Board meetings for each year are scheduled at least three months in advance with urgent Board meetings,
if needed, at least five days in advance. The Board is also provided with opportunities to meet with
managers and heads of divisions to deepen its understanding of the businesses.
Directors have separate, independent and unrestricted access to the Company Secretary for assistance.
The Company Secretary ensures that board procedures are followed and the rules and regulations
applicable to the Board are complied with. Directors may take independent professional advice, if
necessary and with the approval of the Chairman, at the Company’s expense to carry out their duties.
Under the Articles of Association of the Company, the decision to appoint or remove the Company
Secretary rests with the Board as a whole.
40
REMUNERATION MATTERS
Procedures for Developing Remuneration Policies
The Remuneration Committee (“RC”) comprises three members, namely Mr Sat Pal Khattar, Dr Wee
Cho Yaw and Mr Hwang Soo Jin. The majority of the RC, including the chairman of the RC, Mr Sat Pal
Khattar, are independent Directors. The RC is supported by Group Human Resource and/or external
consultants if needed.
The principal responsibilities of the RC are:
a) to recommend to the Board a general framework of remuneration for Directors and key executives;
b) to recommend to the Board the remuneration of Directors;
c) to review the remuneration packages for key executives; and
d) to administer the Company’s share option scheme.
During the year, the RC reviewed the amount of Directors’ fees to be paid to the Non-Executive Directors.
It also assessed the performance and determined the bonus and salary components for the Executive
Directors and reviewed the remuneration packages for key executives and share options to eligible staff
and the terms thereof.
The RC has reviewed the Group’s obligations arising in the event of termination of the Executive
Directors’ and key executives’ service contracts, to ensure that such service contracts contain fair and
reasonable termination clauses which are not overly generous.
Level and Mix of Remuneration
The RC takes into consideration current industry norms on compensation and adopts a remuneration
policy in line with industry practices. None of the Non-Executive Directors have any service contract
or consultancy agreement with the Company. Non-Executive Directors, including the Chairman of
the Board, are paid directors’ fees which comprise a basic fee and additional fees for serving on Board
Committees. The RC recommends Directors’ fees to the Board for endorsement prior to submission to
shareholders for approval at each annual general meeting. The Company’s share option scheme allows
for grants of share options to Non-Executive Directors although to-date, the Non-Executive Directors
have not been granted any share options to-date.
The Group remunerates its employees at competitive and appropriate levels, commensurate with their
performance and contributions. The remuneration framework comprises fixed and variable compensation,
provident fund and other long-term incentives. A variable bonus scheme is in place that determines the
bonus pool to be appropriated from each year’s earnings for employees of the Group. The scheme has
a good balance of both current year earnings and long-term sustainability / growth of the respective
businesses.
In the annual review of remuneration of the CEO and Executive Directors, the RC takes into consideration
performance of the individuals and comparative remuneration of similarly placed persons in the market.
The performance-related elements of the remuneration are designed to align interests of Executive
Directors with shareholders generally. The performance criteria include achievement of financial
objectives using financial indicators like profitability and return of assets over a period of time. Their
remuneration packages include a variable bonus element, which is performance based and these are
reviewed annually by the RC. Share options are granted to the Executive Directors and eligible key
executives which can only be exercised after the relevant vesting period. More information on the Haw
Par Corporation Group 2002 Share Option Scheme can be found in the Directors’ Report and Note 27(b)
to the financial statements.

Remuneration of Key Executives
The remuneration of each of the top five executives of the Group (who are not Directors) falls within the
range of S$200,001 to S$400,000. The total remuneration paid to these top five executives is between
$1,200,000 and 1,400,000.
Disclosures are not made in exact amounts and identities of key executives are not made due to
confidentiality reasons.
There is no employee (other than the CEO) who is an immediate family member of a Director or the
CEO. A relative of the CEO, Mr Kelvin Whang, who is the General Manager of Underwater World Pattaya
was paid an annual remuneration of between $150,000 to $300,000.
42
ACCOUNTABILITY AND AUDIT
Audit Committee (“AC”)
The AC comprises four members, namely, Mr Reggie Thein, Mr Hwang Soo Jin, Dr Lee Suan Yew and
Dr Chew Kia Ngee, all of whom are independent non-executive Directors. The chairman of the AC,
Mr Reggie Thein and one other AC member, Dr Chew Kia Ngee, are senior accountants with over 40
years’ experience in the profession while the rest of the members have substantial business experience.
The principal responsibilities of the AC are:
• review and approve the audit plans of the internal and external auditors;
• consider the auditors’ evaluation of the system of internal controls;
• recommend the appointment, re-appointment and removal of external auditors and approve the
compensation of the external auditors;
• review annually the independence and objectivity of the external auditors, the cost effectiveness
of the audit, and the nature and extent of non-audit services;
• review and ensure adequacy, independence, effectiveness and objectivity of the internal audit
function;
• review the Group’s quarterly and full year results and annual financial statements for approval by
the Board, and the appropriateness and consistency of accounting principles and policies adopted
across the Group, including significant financial reporting issues and judgements;
• review the adequacy and effectiveness of the Company’s system of internal controls, addressing
financial, operational and compliance risks and risk management processes;
• review interested person transactions; and
• review whistle-blowing reports.
The AC has full authority to investigate any matter on issues of internal controls, suspected fraud or
irregularity. It has full access to and cooperation of the management and full discretion to invite any
staff to attend its meetings. The AC adopts key principles from “Guidebook for Audit Committee in
Singapore”, issued by the Audit Committee Guidance Committee in Singapore in 2008.
During the year, the AC held four meetings. It met the external and internal auditors separately in the
absence of management.
In the review of non-audit services, the AC was satisfied that non-material possible conflicts would not
affect the independence of the external auditors. The AC has confirmed that it has complied with Rule
712 and Rule 715/716 which set out the requirements on suitability of auditor. The AC has recommended
to the Board to re-appoint PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors for financial year 2013. The aggregate
amount of fees paid to PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP for FY2012 and the breakdown of fees paid in total
for audit and non-audit services were $376,000 and $163,000 respectively.
The AC members are continuously updated on changes to accounting standards and issues which have
a direct impact on financial statements and relevant legislation and accounting-related matters.
Whistle Blowing Policy
The Company has a whistle-blowing policy and process for employees to report to the AC Committee
any improprieties or suspected wrong-doing by the management or staff without fear of reprisal. All
reports received are accorded confidentiality and independently investigated by the whistle blowing
unit comprising the Group Human Resource Manager and Group Internal Audit Manager. Details of
the whistle blowing policy are posted in the Company’s intranet for staff reference and new employees
are briefed on this policy during their orientation.

Corporate Governance
Internal Audit
The Company has an internal audit (“IA”) department which is staffed with professionally qualified
personnel. The Group Internal Audit Manager reports to the Chairman of the AC on audit matters
and to the CEO on administrative matters. The appointment and removal of the Group Internal Audit
Manager rest with the Chairman of the AC.
The IA follows the Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing set by the Institute of
Internal Auditors. IA adopts strict procedures in reporting its audit findings to the management and AC.
The role of IA is to render support to the AC in ensuring that the Group maintains a sound system of
internal controls by performing regular monitoring and testing of key controls and procedures, reviewing
all operational and financial activities and undertaking investigations as requested by AC.
The IA submits its internal audit plan to the AC for approval at the beginning of each year. Internal audit
reviews are carried out on all significant business units in the Group and a summary of findings and
recommendations is discussed during each AC meeting. The IA has unfettered access to the AC and to
all documents, reports, properties and personnel for the purposes of its audit. The AC is of the view that
the internal audit function is adequately resourced and has appropriate standing within the Company.
Risk Management and Internal Controls
The Group has established a formal risk management framework across the entire organisation to
provide a structured approach for managing risks. The framework enables management to have a formal
structure and a standardised process in risk management reporting. The framework is designed to be
aligned with the Group’s strategic, operational, reporting and compliance objectives.
Major operational risks such as competition, manufacturing capability, regulatory compliance and
business interruption are managed by leveraging on the Group’s experience and knowledge of local
market conditions, taking out appropriate insurance coverage, and having effective business continuity
plans. Financial risks are mitigated by using appropriate hedging instruments when necessary and
actively managing foreign exchange and credit exposures. Further details on managing financial risks
are disclosed in Note 28 on Page 99 of the Annual Report.
The Risk Management Committee, chaired by the CEO and comprising four other senior key executives
(including one Executive Director and the Chief Financial Officer), oversees various aspects of control
and risk management policies and processes of the Group. It reviews risk management parameters across
the Group and reports to the AC on its findings and actions taken to address the key risks identified. It
considers risk identification and its impact on the Group. Risks are analysed and assessed in terms of
risk impact and risk likelihood. Management evaluates the options and controls needed to deal with
identified risks, depending on the risk impact, likelihood and related costs and benefits. Key risks are
agreed with the Board and testing performed to ensure controls are in place.
Based on work performed by the internal and external auditors and reviews undertaken by the Risk
Management Committee and the AC, the Board, with the concurrence of the AC, is reasonably satisfied
that the internal controls addressing financial, operational, compliance risks and risk management
processes are generally adequate for the Group as at 31 December 2012.
The Group’s internal controls and risk management systems provide reasonable, but not absolute,
assurance that the Group will not be adversely affected by any reasonably foreseeable event. The Board
recognises that no system of internal controls and risk management can provide absolute assurances.

general meetings of shareholders are conducted by electronic poll.
The Company hold regular meetings with research analysts, fund managers and institutional investors
to review the Company’s performance and provide investors with a better understanding of the Group’s
businesses.
The Group strongly encourages the attendance of shareholders at general meetings of shareholders,
which are always held at a central location in Singapore. At such general meetings, shareholders are
invited to raise questions on any matters that need clarification and appropriate responses are given.
The Chairman and the other Directors (in particular, the chairpersons of the AC, NC and RC) as well as
the external auditors are present at such general meetings to address all queries from shareholders on
various matters affecting the Group and the conduct of external audit. Key management personnel are
also present at such general meetings to respond to queries from the shareholders.
The reception after each general meeting of shareholders provides an opportunity for shareholders to
informally communicate their views and expectations to the Company’s representatives.
The Company’s Articles of Association allow a shareholder to appoint one or two proxies to attend and
vote at the Company’s general meetings of shareholders. Separate resolutions on each distinct issue
are tabled at such general meetings. If requested, the Company allows shareholders who hold shares
through nominees to attend such general meetings as observers.

Independent Auditor’s Report
To the Members of Haw Par Corporation Limited
for the financial year ended 31 December 2012
Report on the Financial Statements
We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Haw Par Corporation Limited (the “Company”)
and its subsidiaries (the “Group”) set out on pages 55 to 112, which comprise the consolidated statement of
financial position of the Group and statement of financial position of the Company as at 31 December 2012,
the consolidated income statement, the consolidated statement of comprehensive income, the consolidated
statement of changes in equity and the consolidated statement of cash flows of the Group for the financial year
then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information.
Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements
Management is responsible for the preparation of financial statements that give a true and fair view in accordance
with the provisions of the Singapore Companies Act (the “Act”) and Singapore Financial Reporting Standards,
and for devising and maintaining a system of internal accounting controls sufficient to provide a reasonable
assurance that assets are safeguarded against loss from unauthorised use or disposition; and transactions are
properly authorised and that they are recorded as necessary to permit the preparation of true and fair profit and
loss accounts and statements of financial position and to maintain accountability of assets.
Auditor’s Responsibility
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted
our audit in accordance with Singapore Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with
ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial
statements are free from material misstatement.
An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the
financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgement, including the assessment of
the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk
assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation of financial statements
that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but
not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An audit also
includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting
estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit
opinion.

Notes to The Financial Statements
For the financial year ended 31 December 2012
These notes form an integral part of and should be read in conjunction with the accompanying financial
statements.
1.General
Haw Par Corporation Limited (the “Company”) is incorporated and domiciled in Singapore and is listed on
the Singapore Exchange. The address of its registered office is as follows:
401 Commonwealth Drive
#03-03 Haw Par Technocentre
Singapore 149598
The Company is the owner of the “Tiger” trademarks and is the holding company of the Group.
The principal activities of the Company are licensing of the “Tiger” trademarks and owning investments for
long term holding purposes.
The principal activities of the Group are as follows:
(a) manufacturing, marketing and trading healthcare products;
(b) providing leisure-related goods and services; and
(c) investing in properties and securities.
2.Significant accounting policies
(a)
Basis of preparation
The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Singapore Financial Reporting
Standards (“FRS”). The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention,
except as disclosed in the accounting policies below.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with FRS requires management to exercise its
judgement in the process of applying the Group’s accounting policies. It also requires the use of
certain critical accounting estimates and assumptions. An area involving a higher degree of judgment
or complexity, or where assumptions and estimates are significant to the financial statements, is
disclosed in Note 3.
Interpretations and amendments to published standards effective in 2012
On 1 January 2012, the Group adopted the new or amended FRS and Interpretations to FRS (“INT
FRS”) that are mandatory for application from that date. Changes to the Group’s accounting policies
have been made as required, in accordance with the transitional provisions in the respective FRS and
INT FRS.
The adoption of these new or revised FRS and INT FRS did not result in substantial changes to the
Group’s and Company’s accounting policies and has no material effect on the amounts reported for
the current or prior financial years except for the adoption of the amendment to FRS 12. On 1 January
2012, the Group adopted the amendments to FRS 12 Income Taxes which are relevant and effective
for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2012. The amendment introduces a presumption
that an investment property measured at fair value is recoverable entirely through its sale. Previously,
the Group had recognised deferred tax liabilities on revaluation of its investment properties.
Under the amendment, the deferred tax liabilities on the Group’s investment properties will be
recognised on the basis of recovery through sale. This change in accounting policy has been applied
retrospectively. Accordingly, the comparatives have been restated.

The Group has also early adopted the amendment to FRS 1 Presentation of Items of Other
Comprehensive Income on 1 January 2012. The amendment is applicable retrospectively to annual
periods beginning on or after 1 July 2012 with early adoption permitted. It requires items presented in
other comprehensive income (“OCI”) to be separated into two groups, based on whether or not they
may be recycled to profit or loss in the future.
The amendment to FRS 1 has no impact on the statement of financial position.
(b)
Revenue recognition
Revenue comprises the fair value of the consideration received or receivable for the sale of goods
and rendering of services, in the ordinary course of the Group’s activities, net of goods and services
tax, rebates and discounts, and after eliminating sales within the Group. Revenue is recognised as
follows:
(1) Sale of goods
Revenue from sale of goods is recognised when a Group entity has transferred to the customer
the significant risks and rewards of the ownership of the goods, and collectibility of the related
receivables is reasonably assured.

2.Significant accounting policies (continued)
(b)
Revenue recognition (continued)
(2) Rendering of services
Revenue from services is recognised upon rendering of services.
(3)
Interest income
Interest income is recognised on a time proportion basis using the effective interest method.
(4)
Dividend income
Dividend income from subsidiaries, associated companies and available-for-sale financial assets
is recognised when the right to receive payment is established.
(5)
Rental income
Rental income from operating leases on investment properties is recognised on a straight-line
basis over the lease term.
(c)
Group accounting
(1)
Subsidiaries
(i)
Consolidation
Subsidiaries are entities over which the Group has power to govern the financial and
operating policies so as to obtain benefits from its activities, generally accompanied by
a shareholding giving rise to a majority of the voting rights. The existence and effect of
potential voting rights that are currently exercisable or convertible are considered when
assessing whether the Group controls another entity. Subsidiaries are consolidated from
the date on which control is transferred to the Group. They are de-consolidated from the
date on which control ceases.
In preparing the consolidated financial statements, transactions, balances and unrealised
gains on transactions between group entities are eliminated. Unrealised losses are also
eliminated but are considered an impairment indicator of the asset transferred. Accounting
policies of subsidiaries have been changed where necessary to ensure consistency with
the policies adopted by the Group.
Non-controlling interests are that part of the net results of operations and of net assets
of a subsidiary attributable to the interests which are not owned directly or indirectly
by the equity holders of the Company. They are shown separately in the consolidated
statement of comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity and statement of
financial position. Total comprehensive income is attributed to the non-controlling interests
based on their respective interests in a subsidiary, even if this results in the non-controlling
interests having a deficit balance.
(ii)
Acquisitions
The acquisition method of accounting is used to account for business combinations by
the Group.
The consideration transferred for the acquisition of a subsidiary or business comprises the
fair value of the assets transferred, the liabilities incurred and the equity interests issued
by the Group. The consideration transferred also includes the fair value of any contingent
consideration arrangement and the fair value of any pre-existing equity interest in the
subsidiary.

2.Significant accounting policies (continued)
(c)
Group accounting (continued)
(1)
Subsidiaries (continued)
(ii)
Acquisitions (continued)
Acquisition-related costs are expensed as incurred.
Identifiable assets acquired and liabilities and contingent liabilities assumed in a business
combination are, with limited exceptions, measured initially at their fair values at the
acquisition date.
On an acquisition-by-acquisition basis, the Group recognises any non-controlling interest in
the acquiree at the date of acquisition either at fair value or at the non-controlling interest’s
proportionate share of the acquiree’s net identifiable assets.
The excess of the consideration transferred, the amount of any non-controlling interest
in the acquiree and the acquisition-date fair value of any previous equity interest in the
acquiree over the fair value of the net identifiable assets acquired is recorded as goodwill.
Please refer to Note 2(e)(1) for the Group’s accounting policy on goodwill on acquisition of
subsidiaries.
(iii)
Disposals
When a change in the Company’s ownership interest in a subsidiary results in a loss of
control over the subsidiary, the assets and liabilities of the subsidiary including any goodwill
are derecognised. Amounts previously recognised in other comprehensive income in
respect of that entity are also reclassified to profit or loss or transferred directly to retained
earnings if required by a specific Standard.
Any retained equity interest in the entity is remeasured at fair value. The difference between
the carrying amount of the retained interest at the date when control is lost and its fair value
is recognised in profit or loss.
(2) Transactions with non-controlling interests
Changes in the Group’s ownership interest in a subsidiary that do not result in a loss of control over
the subsidiary is accounted for as transactions with equity owners of the Company. Any difference
between the change in the carrying amounts of the non-controlling interest and the fair value of
the consideration paid or received is recognised within equity attributable to the equity holders of
the Company. Please refer to Note 2(g) for the Company’s accounting policy on investments in
subsidiaries and associated companies.
(3)
Associated companies
Associated companies are entities over which the Group has significant influence, but not control,
generally accompanying a shareholding of between and including 20% and 50% of the voting
rights. Investments in associated companies are accounted for in the consolidated financial
statements using the equity method of accounting less impairment losses, if any. Investments in
associated companies in the consolidated statement of financial position include goodwill (net
of accumulated impairment loss) identified on acquisition, where applicable. Please refer to Note
2(e)(1) for the Group’s accounting policy on goodwill.

2.Significant accounting policies (continued)
(c)
Group accounting (continued)
(3)
Associated companies (continued)
(i)
Acquisitions
Investments in associated companies are initially recognised at cost. The cost of an
acquisition is measured at the fair value of the assets given, equity instruments issued or
liabilities incurred or assumed at the date of exchange, plus costs directly attributable to
the acquisition. Goodwill on associated companies represents the excess of the cost of
acquisition of the associate over the Group’s share of the fair value of the identifiable net
assets of the associate and is included in the carrying amount of the investments.
(ii)
Equity method of accounting
In applying the equity method of accounting, the Group’s share of its associated
companies’ post-acquisition profits or losses are recognised in profit or loss and its share
of post-acquisition other comprehensive income is recognised in other comprehensive
income. These post-acquisition movements and distributions received from the associated
companies are adjusted against the carrying amount of the investments. When the
Group’s share of losses in an associated company equals or exceeds its interest in the
associated company, including any other unsecured non-current receivables, the Group
does not recognise further losses, unless it has obligations to make or has made payments
on behalf of the associated company.
Unrealised gains on transactions between the Group and its associated companies are
eliminated to the extent of the Group’s interest in the associated companies. Unrealised
losses are also eliminated unless the transaction provides evidence of an impairment of the
asset transferred. The accounting policies of associated companies have been changed
where necessary to ensure consistency with the accounting policies adopted by the Group.
(iii)
Disposals
Gains and losses arising from partial disposals or dilutions in investments in associated
companies in which significant influence is retained are recognised in profit or loss.
Investments in associated companies are derecognised when the Group loses significant
influence. Any retained equity interest in the entity is remeasured at its fair value. The
difference between the carrying amount of the retained interest at the date when significant
influence is lost and its fair value is recognised in profit or loss.
Please refer to Note 2(g) for the Company’s accounting policy on investments in subsidiaries
and associated companies.
(d)
Property, plant and equipment
(1) Leasehold land and buildings
Leasehold land and buildings are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated
impairment losses (Note 2(h)(2)).
66
(2) Other property, plant and equipment
Plant, equipment, furniture, vehicles and marine livestock are stated at cost less accumulated
depreciation and accumulated impairment losses (Note 2(h)(2)).
Notes to The Financial Statements
For the financial year ended 31 December 2012
2.Significant accounting policies (continued)
(d)
Property, plant and equipment (continued)
(3) Components of costs
The cost of an item of property, plant and equipment includes its purchase price and any cost
that is directly attributable to bringing the asset to the location and condition necessary for it
to be capable of operating in the manner intended by management. The projected cost of
dismantlement, removal or restoration is also included as part of the cost of property, plant
and equipment if the obligation for dismantlement, removal or restoration is incurred as a
consequence of acquiring or using the asset.
(4)Depreciation
Depreciation is calculated using a straight-line method to allocate the depreciable amounts of
property, plant and equipment over their estimated useful lives as follows:
Leasehold land and buildings
–
50 years or over the term of the lease,
whichever is shorter
Plant, equipment, furniture and vehicles
–
4 to 10 years
Marine livestock
–
5 years
Construction-in-progress assets are not depreciated until they are brought to use. Fully
depreciated assets are retained in the financial statements until they are no longer in use.
The residual values, estimated useful lives and depreciation method of property, plant and
equipment are reviewed, and adjusted as appropriate, at each financial year-end to ensure that
the method and period of depreciation are consistent with the expected pattern of economic
benefits from items of property, plant and equipment. The effects of any revision are recognised
in the profit or loss for the financial year in which the changes arise.
(5) Subsequent expenditure
Subsequent expenditure relating to property, plant and equipment that has already been
recognised is added to the carrying amount of the asset only when it is probable that future
economic benefits associated with the item will flow to the Group and the cost of the item can
be measured reliably. All other repair and maintenance expense is recognised in the profit or
loss when incurred.
(6)Disposal
On disposal of an item of property, plant and equipment, the difference between the net disposal
proceeds and its carrying amount is recognised in the profit or loss.
(e)
Intangible assets
(1)Goodwill
Goodwill on acquisitions of subsidiaries and business on or after 1 January 2010 represents the
excess of the consideration transferred, the amount of any non-controlling interest in the acquiree
and the acquisition-date fair value of any previous equity interest in the acquiree over the fair value
of the identifiable net assets acquired.
Goodwill on acquisition of subsidiaries and businesses prior to 1 January 2010 and on acquisition
of associated companies represents the excess of the cost of the acquisition over the fair value of
the Group’s share of their identifiable net assets at the date of acquisition.

(e)
Intangible assets (continued)
(1)
Goodwill (continued)
Goodwill on subsidiaries is recognised separately as intangible assets and carried at cost less
accumulated impairment losses.
Goodwill on associated companies is included in the carrying amount of the investments.
Gains and losses on the disposal of subsidiaries and associated companies include the carrying
amount of goodwill relating to the entity sold, except for goodwill arising from acquisitions prior
to 1 January 2001. Such goodwill was adjusted against retained profits in the year of acquisition
and is not recognised in profit or loss on disposal.

Trademarks are stated at cost less accumulated amortisation and accumulated impairment
losses (Note 2(h)(2)). Amortisation is calculated using the straight line method to allocate the
cost of trademarks over a period not exceeding 20 years. These have been fully amortised as
at the end of the reporting period.
(3)
Deferred expenditure
Deferred expenditure comprises technology fee paid in advance, clinical trial expenses and
television advertisement production costs, which are recognised as assets as they generate
future economic benefits. Technology fee expense paid in advance for the use of a third party’s
technology is amortised using the straight line method over the period of the contract with
the third party. Clinical trial expenses incurred for product registrations are amortised using
the straight line method over a 5-year period. Television advertisement production costs
are amortised using the straight line method over the estimated useful life of approximately
2-3 years.
The amortisation period and amortisation method of intangible assets other than goodwill are
reviewed at least at each financial year-end. The effects of any revision are recognised in profit or loss
when the changes arise.
(f)
Investment properties
Investment properties of the Group, principally comprising office and industrial buildings, are held for
long-term rental yields and/or capital appreciation and are not substantially occupied by the Group.
Investment properties are classified as non-current assets, initially recognised at cost and subsequently
carried at fair value, determined annually by independent professional valuers on the highest-andbest-use basis. Changes in fair values are recognised in profit or loss.
Investment properties are subject to renovations or improvements at regular intervals. The cost of
major renovations and improvements is capitalised as additions and the carrying amounts of the
replaced components are written off to profit or loss. The cost of maintenance, repairs and minor
improvements is charged to profit or loss when incurred.
On disposal of an investment property, the difference between the net disposal proceeds and the
carrying amount is recognised in profit or loss.

(g)
Investments in subsidiaries and associated companies
Investments in subsidiaries and associated companies are stated at cost less accumulated impairment
losses (Note 2(h)(2)) in the Company’s statement of financial position. On disposal of investments
in subsidiaries and associated companies, the difference between net disposal proceeds and the
carrying amount of the net investments are recognised in profit or loss.
(h)
Impairment of non-financial assets
(1)
Goodwill
Goodwill, recognised separately as an intangible asset, is tested annually for impairment and
whenever there is any indication that the goodwill may be impaired.
For the purpose of impairment testing of goodwill, goodwill is allocated to each of the Group’s
cash generating units (“CGU”) expected to benefit from synergies of the business combination.
An impairment loss is recognised when the carrying amount of CGU, including the goodwill,
exceeds the recoverable amount of the CGU. Recoverable amount of the CGU is the higher of
the CGU’s fair value less cost to sell and value-in-use.
The total impairment loss of a CGU is allocated first to reduce the carrying amount of goodwill
allocated to the CGU and then to the other assets of the CGU pro-rata on the basis of the
carrying amount of each asset in the CGU.
An impairment loss on goodwill is recognised in profit or loss and is not reversed in a subsequent
period.
(2)Intangible assets, Property, plant and equipment and Investments in subsidiaries and
associated companies
Intangible assets, property, plant and equipment and investments in subsidiaries and associated
companies are reviewed for impairment whenever there is any objective evidence or indication
that these assets may be impaired.
For the purpose of impairment testing of these assets, recoverable amount (i.e. the higher of the
fair value less cost to sell and value in use) is determined on an individual asset basis unless the
asset does not generate cash inflows that are largely independent of those from other assets.
If this is the case, recoverable amount is determined for the CGU to which the asset belongs.
If the recoverable amount of the asset (or CGU) is estimated to be less than its carrying amount,
the carrying amount of the asset (or CGU) is reduced to its recoverable amount.
The difference between the carrying amount and recoverable amount is recognised as an
impairment loss in profit or loss.
An impairment loss for an asset other than goodwill is reversed if, and only if, there has
been a change in the estimates used to determine the asset’s recoverable amount since the
last impairment loss was recognised. The carrying amount of an asset other than goodwill
is increased to its revised recoverable amount, provided that this amount does not exceed
the carrying amount that would have been determined (net of accumulated amortisation or
depreciation) had no impairment loss been recognised for the asset in prior years.
A reversal of impairment loss for an asset other than goodwill is recognised in profit or loss.

2.Significant accounting policies (continued)
(i)
Financial assets
(1)
Classification
The Group classifies its investments in financial assets in the following categories: loans
and receivables, available-for-sale and at fair value through profit or loss. The classification
depends on the nature of the asset and the purpose for which the assets have been acquired.
Management determines the classification of its financial assets at initial recognition.
Investments in convertible bonds are analysed into its non-derivative host contract debt
securities and its embedded derivative. The non-derivative host contract is accounted for as
financial assets, available-for-sale and its embedded derivative is accounted for as financial
assets at fair value through profit or loss.
(i)
Loans and receivables
Loans and receivables are non-derivative financial assets with fixed or determinable
payments that are not quoted in an active market. They are included in current assets,
except those maturing later than 12 months after the end of the reporting period which are
classified as non-current assets.
(ii)
Financial assets, available-for-sale
Financial assets, available-for-sale are non-derivatives that are either designated in this
category or not classified in any of the other categories.
(iii) Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss
Financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are financial assets held for trading. A
financial asset is classified in this category if acquired principally for the purpose of selling in
the short term. Derivatives are also classified as held for trading unless they are designated
as hedges. Assets in this category are presented as current assets if they are either held
for trading or are expected to be realised within 12 months after the reporting period.
(2) Recognition and derecognition
Regular way purchases and sales of financial assets are recognised on trade-date - the date on
which the Group commits to purchase or sell the asset.
Financial assets are derecognised when the rights to receive cash flows from the financial assets
have expired or have been transferred and the Group has transferred substantially all risks and
rewards of ownership.
On disposal of a financial asset, the difference between the net sale proceeds and its carrying
amount is recognised in profit or loss. Any amount in other comprehensive income and
accumulated in the fair value reserve relating to that asset is reclassified to profit or loss.
(3) Initial measurement
Financial assets are initially recognised at fair value plus transaction costs except for financial
assets at fair value through profit or loss, which are recognised at fair value. Transaction costs
for financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are recognised immediately as expenses.

2.Significant accounting policies (continued)
(i)
Financial assets (continued)
(4) Subsequent measurement
Financial assets, both available-for-sale and financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are
subsequently carried at fair value. Loans and receivables are subsequently carried at amortised
cost using the effective interest method.
Changes in fair values of available-for-sale equity securities (i.e. non-monetary items) denominated
in foreign currencies are recognised in other comprehensive income and accumulated in the
fair value reserve, together with the related currency translation differences (except for hedged
amounts). Dividend income on available-for-sale equity securities is recognised separately in
profit or loss and in accordance with Note 2(b)(4).
For investments in the non-derivative host contract of the convertible bonds, interest is
calculated using the effective interest method and is recognised in profit or loss as interest
income. Changes in the fair value of these non-derivative host contracts are recognised in other
comprehensive income and accumulated in the fair value reserve.
Changes in the fair value of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss are recognised in
profit or loss when the changes arise.
(5)Impairment
The Group assesses at the end of each reporting period whether there is objective evidence
that a financial asset or a group of financial assets is impaired and recognises an allowance for
impairment when such evidence exists.
(i)
Loans and receivables
Significant financial difficulties of the debtor, probability that the debtor will enter bankruptcy,
and default or significant delay in payments are objective evidence that these financial
assets are impaired.
The carrying amount of these assets is reduced through the use of an impairment
allowance account which is calculated as the difference between the carrying amount
and the present value of estimated future cash flows, discounted at the original effective
interest rate. When the asset becomes uncollectible, it is written off against the allowance
account. Subsequent recoveries of amounts previously written off are recognised against
the same line item in profit or loss.
The allowance for impairment loss account is reduced through profit or loss in a subsequent
period when the amount of impairment loss decreases and the related decrease can be
objectively measured. The carrying amount of the asset previously impaired is increased
to the extent that the new carrying amount does not exceed the amortised cost had no
impairment been recognised in prior periods.
(ii)
Financial assets, available-for-sale
In addition to the objective evidence of impairment described in Note 2(i)(5)(i), a significant
or prolonged decline in the fair value of an equity security below its cost is considered as
an indicator that the available-for-sale financial asset is impaired.

(5)Impairment (continued)
(ii)
Financial assets, available-for-sale (continued)
If any evidence of impairment exists, the cumulative loss that was previously recognised
in other comprehensive income is reclassified to profit or loss. The cumulative loss is
measured as the difference between the acquisition cost (net of any principal repayments
and amortisation) and the current fair value, less any impairment loss previously recognised
as an expense. The impairment losses recognised as an expense on equity securities are
not reversed through profit or loss.
(j)
Inventories
Inventories are carried at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is determined on a weighted
average basis. The cost of finished goods and work-in-progress comprises raw materials, direct labour,
other direct costs and related production overheads (based on normal operating capacity) but exclude
borrowing costs. Net realisable value is the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of business,
less estimated costs of completion and applicable variable selling expenses.
(k)
Operating leases
(1) When a group company is the lessee:
Leases of property, plant and equipment where a significant portion of the risks and rewards
of ownership is retained by the lessor are classified as operating leases. Payments made under
operating leases (net of any incentives received from the lessor) are recognised in profit or loss on
a straight-line basis over the period of the lease.
When an operating lease is terminated before the lease period has expired, any payment
required to be made to the lessor by way of penalty is recognised as an expense in the period
in which termination takes place.
(2) When a group company is the lessor:
Leases of investment properties to third parties where the Group assumes substantially all risks
and rewards incidental to ownership of the leased assets are classified as operating leases.
Rental income from operating leases (net of any incentives given to lessees) is recognised in profit
or loss on a straight-line basis over the lease term.
When an operating lease is terminated before the lease period has expired, any payment
required to be made by the lessee by way of penalty is recognised as an income in the period in
which termination takes place, provided collection is reasonably assured.
(l)
Trade and other payables
Trade and other payables are initially recognised at fair value, and subsequently measured at amortised
cost, using the effective interest method.
(m)
Income taxes
Current income tax for current and prior periods are recognised at the amounts expected to be paid
to or recovered from the tax authorities, using the tax rates and tax laws that have been enacted or
substantively enacted by the end of the reporting period.
72
Notes to The Financial Statements
For the financial year ended 31 December 2012
2.Significant accounting policies (continued)
(m)
Income taxes (continued)
Deferred income tax are recognised for all deductible/taxable temporary differences arising between
the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying amounts in the financial statements except
when the deferred income tax arise from the initial recognition of goodwill or an asset or liability in
a transaction that is not a business combination and at the time of the transaction, affects neither
accounting nor taxable profit or loss.
Deferred income tax liability is recognised on temporary differences arising on investments in subsidiaries
and associated companies, except where the timing of the reversal of the temporary difference can be
controlled and it is probable that the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future.
Deferred income tax asset is recognised to the extent that it is probable that future taxable profit will be
available against which the deductible temporary differences and tax losses can be utilised.
Deferred income tax is measured:
(i)at the tax rates that are expected to apply when the related deferred income tax asset is realised
or the deferred income tax liability is settled, based on tax rates and tax laws that have been
enacted or substantively enacted by the end of the reporting period; and
(ii) based on the tax consequence that would follow from the manner in which the Group expects,
at the end of the reporting period, to recover or settle the carrying amounts of its assets and
liabilities.
Current and deferred income taxes are recognised as income or expenses in profit or loss for the
period, except to the extent that the tax arises from a business combination or a transaction, which
is recognised directly in equity. Deferred tax arising from a business combination is adjusted against
goodwill on acquisition.
(n)
Employee benefits
(1) Defined contribution plans
Defined contribution plans are post-employment benefit plans under which the Group pays fixed
contributions into separate entities such as Central Provident Fund on a mandatory, contractual
or voluntary basis. The Group has no further payment obligations once the contributions have
been paid. The Group’s contribution are recognised as employee expense when they are due,
unless they can be capitalised as an asset.
(2)
Share-based compensation
The Group operates an equity-settled, share-based compensation plan. The fair value of
the employee services received in exchange for the grant of the options is recognised as an
expense in profit or loss with a corresponding increase in share option reserve within equity over
the vesting period. The total amount to be recognised over the vesting period is determined
by reference to the fair value of the options granted on the date of grant. Non-market vesting
conditions are included in the estimation of the number of shares under options that are expected
to become exercisable on vesting date. At the end of each reporting period, the Group revises
its estimates of the number of shares under options that are expected to become exercisable
on vesting date and recognises the impact of the revision of estimates in profit or loss, with a
corresponding adjustment to the share option reserve over the remaining vesting period.

(o)
Hedging activities
The Group documents at the inception of the transaction the relationship between the hedging
instruments and hedged items, as well as its risk management objective and strategies for undertaking
various hedge transactions. The Group also documents its assessment, both at hedge inception
and on an ongoing basis, on whether the derivatives designated as hedging instruments are highly
effective in offsetting changes in fair value or cash flows of the hedged items. A non-derivative financial
asset or non-derivative financial liability may be designated as a hedging instrument for a hedge of a
foreign currency risk.
The fair value changes on the hedged item resulting from currency risk are recognised in profit or loss.
The fair value changes on the portion of the hedging instrument designated as fair value hedges are
recognised in profit or loss within the same line item as the fair value changes from the hedged item.
(p)
Fair value estimation
The fair values of current financial assets and liabilities, carried at amortised cost, are assumed to
approximate their carrying amounts.
The fair values of financial instruments traded in active markets (such as exchange-traded and overthe-counter securities and derivatives) are based on quoted market prices obtained from stock
exchange at the end of the reporting period. The quoted market prices used for financial assets held
by the Group are the current bid prices; the appropriate quoted market prices for financial liabilities
are the current asking prices.
The fair values of financial instruments that are not traded in an active market are determined by using
valuation techniques. The Group uses a variety of methods such as estimated discounted cash flow
analyses.
(q)
Currency translation
(1) Functional and presentation currency
Items included in the financial statements of each entity in the Group are measured using the
currency of the primary economic environment in which the entity operates (“the functional
currency”). The consolidated financial statements of the Group are presented in Singapore
Dollar, which is the Company’s functional currency.
(2) Transactions and balances
Transactions in a currency other than the functional currency (“foreign currency”) are translated
into the functional currency using the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of transactions.
Currency translation gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions and
from the translation of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at the
closing rates at the end of the reporting period are recognised in profit or loss, except for
currency translation differences on the net investment in foreign operations, borrowings in foreign
currencies and other currency instruments designated and qualifying as net investment hedges
for foreign operations, which are included in other comprehensive income and accumulated in
the foreign currency translation reserve within equity.
When a foreign operation is disposed of or any borrowings forming part of the net investment of
the foreign operation are repaid, a proportionate share of the accumulated translation differences
is reclassified to profit or loss, as part of the gain or loss on disposal.

(q)
Currency translation (continued)
(2) Transactions and balances (continued)
Non-monetary items that are measured at fair values in foreign currencies are translated using the
exchange rates at the date when the fair values are determined. Currency translation differences
on non-monetary items whereby gains or losses are recognised in other comprehensive income,
such as equity investments classified as available-for-sale financial assets are included in the
fair value reserve.
(3) Translation of Group entities’ financial statements
The results and financial position of Group entities (none of which has the currency of a
hyperinflationary economy) that are in functional currencies different from the presentation
currency are translated into the presentation currency as follows:
(i)Assets and liabilities are translated at the closing rates at the reporting date;
(ii)Income and expenses are translated at average exchange rates (unless this average is
not a reasonable approximation of the cumulative effect of the rates prevailing on the
transaction dates, in which case, income and expenses are translated at the dates of the
transactions); and
(ii)
All resulting currency exchange differences are recognised in other comprehensive income
and accumulated in currency translation reserve within equity.
Goodwill and fair value adjustments arising from the acquisition of a foreign entity on or after
1 January 2005 are treated as assets and liabilities of the foreign entity and translated at the
closing rates at the date of the end of the reporting date. For acquisitions prior to 1 January
2005, the exchange rates at the dates of the acquisition are used.
(r)
Segment reporting
Operating segments are reported in a manner consistent with the internal reporting provided to the
Executive Committee and Investment Committee whose members are responsible for allocating
resources and assessing performance of the operating segments.
(s)
Cash and cash equivalents
For purpose of presentation in the consolidated statement of cash flows, cash and cash equivalents
include cash and bank balances, deposits with financial institutions, bank overdrafts, if any and excludes
bank deposits pledged as security.
(t)
Share capital
Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Incremental costs directly attributable to the issuance of new
ordinary shares are deducted against the share capital account. When the Company’s ordinary shares
are repurchased, the weighted average cost of each share is written off against the share capital, with
the remaining amounts written off against the retained earnings of the Company.
(u)
Dividends
Dividends to the Company’s shareholders are recognised when the dividends are approved by the
shareholders.

(v) Government grants
Grants from the government are recognised as a receivable at their fair value when there is reasonable
assurance that the grant will be received and the Group will comply with all the attached conditions.
Government grants receivable are recognised as income over the periods necessary to match them
with the related costs which they are intended to compensate on a systematic basis. Government
grants relating to expenses are shown separately as other income.
(w)
Financial guarantees
The Company had issued corporate guarantees to banks for credit facilities of its subsidiaries. These
guarantees are financial guarantee contracts as they require the Company to reimburse the banks
if the subsidiaries fail to make principal or interest payments when due in accordance with terms of
their credit facilities.
Financial guarantee contracts are initially recognised at their fair values plus transaction costs in the
Company’s statement of financial position.
Financial guarantee contracts are subsequently amortised to profit or loss over the period of the
subsidiaries’ borrowings, unless it is probable that the Company will reimburse the bank for an
amount higher than the unamortised amount. In this case, the financial guarantee contracts shall be
carried at the expected amount payable to the bank in the Company’s statement of financial position.
(x)
Borrowings
Borrowings are presented as current liabilities unless the Group has an unconditional right to defer
settlement for at least 12 months after the end of the reporting period, in which case, they are
presented as non-current liabilities.
Borrowings are initially recognised at fair value (net of transaction costs) and subsequently carried at
amortised cost. Any difference between the proceeds (net of transaction costs) and the redemption
value is recognised in profit or loss over the period of the borrowings using the effective interest
method.
Borrowing costs are recognised in profit or loss using the effective interest method.
3.Critical accounting estimates and judgements
Estimates, assumptions and judgements are continually evaluated and are based on historical experience
and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the
circumstances.
The Group makes estimates and assumptions concerning the future. The resulting accounting estimates
will, by definition, seldom equal to the related actual results. The estimates and assumptions that have a
significant risk of causing a material adjustment to the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities within the
next financial year are discussed below.
Impairment of goodwill and property, plant and equipment
The Group tests annually whether goodwill and property, plant and equipment have suffered any
impairment, in accordance with the accounting policy stated in Note 2(h)(1) and Note 2(h)(2) respectively. The
recoverable amounts of these assets and where applicable, cash-generating units, have been determined
based on value-in-use calculations. These calculations require the use of estimates. Based on the positive
recoverable amount that exceeded the carrying amount of goodwill and property, plant and equipment,
there is no impairment.

Impairment of goodwill and property, plant and equipment (continued)
As the estimates and assumptions used are reasonably conservative, it will require a significant variation

Notes to The Financial Statements
For the financial year ended 31 December 2012
10.Earnings per share (continued)
Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing the net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company
by the weighted average number of ordinary shares outstanding during the financial year.
The diluted earnings per share is adjusted for the effects of all dilutive potential ordinary shares. The
Company has one category of dilutive potential ordinary shares which is share options. A calculation is
carried out to determine the number of shares that could have been issued at fair value (determined as
the average annual market share price of the Company’s shares) based on the monetary value of the
subscription rights attached to outstanding share options. The number of shares calculated is compared
with the number of shares that would have been issued assuming the exercise of the share options.
The difference is added to the denominator as an issuance of ordinary shares for no consideration. No
adjustment is made to earnings (numerator).

Impairment test for goodwill
The goodwill is allocated to the healthcare division of the Group, which is regarded as a cashgenerating unit (“CGU”).
During the financial year, the Group has determined that there is no impairment of its CGU containing
the goodwill. The recoverable amount (i.e. higher of value-in-use and fair value less costs to sell) of
the CGU is determined on the basis of value-in-use calculations. These calculations incorporate cash
flow projections by management covering a twenty-year period.
Key assumptions used for value-in-use calculations:
Discount rate 6.3% (2011: 6.74%)
Growth rate
0.0% (2011: 0.00%)
These assumptions have been used for the analysis of the CGU. The discount rate used is post-tax
and reflects specific risks relating to the healthcare division. Management has used a 0% growth rate
on grounds of prudence.

same fiscal authority. The amounts, determined after appropriate offsetting, are shown on the statement

End of financial year
Deferred income tax assets are recognised for tax losses carried forward to the extent that realisation of
the related tax benefits through future taxable profits is probable. The Group has unrecognised deferred
income tax assets arising from tax losses of $22.8 million (2011: $26.9 million) at the end of the reporting
period. These tax losses can be carried forward and used to offset against future taxable income subject to
meeting certain statutory requirements by those companies in their respective countries of incorporation.
These tax losses have no expiry date.
The Group’s and Company’s deferred tax liabilities have been computed based on the corporate tax rate
and tax laws prevailing at the end of the reporting period.
Where necessary, comparative figures have been adjusted to conform to changes in presentation in the
current year. For the financial year ended 31 December 2011, deferred income tax asset of $601,000
(2010: $828,000) has been reclassified from deferred income tax liabilities to deferred income tax asset in
the statement of financial position in order to better reflect the nature of the deferred income tax account.

The Company operates the Haw Par Corporation Group 2002 Share Option Scheme (“2002
Scheme”). The 2002 Scheme was approved by members of the Company on 22 May 2002 and
further extended to 2017 on 20 April 2011.
The 2002 Scheme grants non-transferable options to selected employees and includes the
participation by the non-executive directors. The maximum life-span of exercising the options is 10
years (exercise period). The options are exercisable beginning on the first anniversary from the date
when the options are granted or the second anniversary if the options are granted at a discount to the
market price under the 2002 Scheme. Once the options are vested, they are exercisable for a period
of four years. The options may be exercised in full or in part in respect of 1,000 shares or any multiple
thereof, on the payment of the exercise price. The Group has no legal or constructive obligation to
repurchase or settle the options in cash. The exercise price is equivalent to the average of the last
dealt price for the share for five consecutive market days immediately before the offer date (“market
price”) at the time of grant and can be set at discounts of up to 20% to the market price under the
2002 Scheme.
During the financial year, options for 442,000 shares were granted to qualifying employees on 1
March 2012 (“2012 Options”), of which 365,000 were accepted. The fair value of the options granted
using the Trinomial valuation model is approximately $204,000. The significant inputs into the model
are exercise price of $5.95 at the grant date, standard deviation of expected share price returns of
14%, 5-year option life and annual risk-free interest rate of 0.2% per annum. The volatility measured
at the standard deviation of expected share price returns is based on statistical analysis of daily share
prices over a historical period that matches the period to expiry of the options. The 2012 options are
exercisable from 1 March 2013 and expire on 28 February 2017.

28.Financial risk management
Financial risk factors
The Group’s activities expose it to market risk (including currency risk and price risk), credit risk and
liquidity risk. The Group’s overall risk management strategy seeks to minimise adverse effects from the
unpredictability of financial markets on the Group’s financial performance.
The Board of Directors is responsible for setting the objectives and underlying principles of financial risk
management for the Group. The Investment Committee then establishes the detailed policies, such as
authority levels, oversight responsibilities, risk identification and measurement, exposure limits and hedging
strategies, in accordance with the objectives and underlying principles approved by the Board of Directors.
Regular reports that contain the Group’s exposure to each type of financial risks are submitted to Investment
Committee.
(a)
Market risk
The Group is exposed to market risk, including primarily changes in currency exchange rates and
market prices of securities.
(1) Foreign currency risk
The Group operates in Asia and through agents/distributors in other parts of the world, with
dominant operations in Singapore. Entities in the Group regularly transact in currencies other
than their respective functional currencies (“foreign currencies”). Currency risk arises when
transactions are denominated in foreign currencies such as United States Dollar (“USD”), Hong
Kong Dollar (“HKD”) and Euro.

(a)
Market risk (continued)
(1) Foreign currency risk (continued)
In addition, the Group is also exposed to currency translation risks arising from its foreign
currency denominated net financial assets, which are not significant.
The Group manages its foreign currency exposures by a policy of matching, as far as possible,
receipts and payments in each individual currency. The surplus of convertible currencies are
either further matched with future foreign currency requirements or exchanged for Singapore
Dollar.
The Group also has available forward contract facilities to hedge future foreign exchange
exposure.
The foreign currency exposure of the Group’s net investment in overseas subsidiaries is managed
under the guidance of the Investment Committee.
The Group’s currency exposure of financial assets/liabilities net of those denominated in the
respective entities’ functional currency based on the information provided to key management
is as follows:

A 10% (2011: 10%) strengthening of Singapore Dollar against the above currencies would have
had the equal but opposite effect on the above currencies to the amounts shown above, on the
basis that all other variables remain constant.
(2) Market price risk
The Group has substantial investments carried at fair value of $1,815.8 million (2011: $1,421.7
million) held in various forms of securities as of 31 December 2012 and have been accounted for
in accordance with the accounting policy stated in Note 2(i). These securities are mainly listed in
Singapore. The Group is not exposed to material commodity price risk.
The fair value of financial instruments traded in active markets (such as available-for-sale
securities) is based on quoted market prices at the end of the reporting period. The quoted
market price used for financial assets held by the Group is the current bid price. These
instruments are categorised as Level 1 under the fair value hierarchy as set out in the relevant
accounting standard.
The market price risk associated with these investments is the potential loss in fair value resulting
from the decrease in market prices of securities. If prices for equity and debt securities listed in
Singapore and elsewhere change by 10% (2011: 10%) with all other variables including tax rate
being held constant, the equity and other comprehensive income will be affected by:

31 December 2012.

29.Segmental reporting
At 31 December 2012, the Group is organised into the following main business segments:
•
•
•
•
Manufacturing, marketing and trading of healthcare products;
Provision of leisure-related goods and services;
Property rental; and
Investments in securities.
Healthcare division principally manufactures and distributes topical analgesic products under the “Tiger
Balm” and “Kwan Loong” brand.
Leisure division provides family and tourist oriented leisure alternatives mainly in the form of oceanariums.
Property division owns and leases out several investment properties in the Asia region.
Investment division engages in investing activities, mainly in quoted and unquoted securities in Asia region.
Inter-segment transactions are determined on an arm’s length basis. Unallocated costs represent corporate
expenses. Segment assets consist primarily of available-for-sale financial assets, investment properties,
property, plant and equipment, intangible assets, inventories, receivables, bank deposits and cash and bank
balances. Segment liabilities comprise operating liabilities and exclude tax liabilities. Capital expenditure
on non-current assets comprises additions to investment properties, property, plant and equipment,
intangible assets and investment in associated companies.
The Group evaluates performance on the basis of profit or loss from operations before tax expenses and
management fees charged internally and exclude non-recurring gains and losses.
The Group accounts for inter-segment sales and transfers as if the sales or transfers were to third parties,
ie. at current market prices.
The Group’s reportable segments are strategic and distinct business units reporting to key group
management. They are managed separately because each business targets different customers and carry
different business risk.

Below are the mandatory standards and interpretations to existing standards that have been published,

and which the Group has not early adopted:
•
RS 110 Consolidated Financial Statements (effective for annual periods beginning on or after

FRS 110 replaces all of the guidance on control and consolidation in FRS 27 “Consolidated and

same criteria are now applied to all entities to determine control. Additional guidance is also provided
to assist in the determination of control where this is difficult to assess. The Group does not anticipate
material impact to the consolidated financial statements as a result of adopting the new FRS 110 and
intends to apply the standard from 1 January 2014.
•
RS 112 Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities (effective for annual periods beginning on or after
F
1 January 2014)
FRS 112 requires disclosure of information that helps financial statement readers to evaluate the
nature, risks and financial effects associated with the entity’s interests in (1) subsidiaries, (2) associates,
(3) joint arrangements and (4) unconsolidated structured entities. The Group does not anticipate
material impact to the consolidated financial statements as a result of adopting the new FRS 112 and
intends to adopt the standard from 1 January 2014.

30.New accounting standards and FRS interpretations and amendments (continued)
•
FRS 113 Fair Value Measurement (effective for annual periods beginning on or after 1 January 2013)
FRS 113 provides consistent guidance across FRSs on how fair value should be determined and
which disclosures should be made in the financial statements. The Group does not anticipate material
impact to the consolidated financial statements as a result of adopting the new FRS 113 and intends
to adopt the standard prospectively from 1 January 2013.
