Of The Hallmark Insurance Company Limited as at June 30, 2011 together with the notes forming part thereof (here-in-after referred to as the condensed interim financial information) for the half year then ended.

Management is responsible for the preparation and presentation of this interim financial information in accordance with approved accounting standards as applicable in Pakistan, for interim financial reporting. Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on this interim financial information based on our review.

Scope of Review

We conducted our review in accordance with the international Standards on review engagements 2410. “Review of interim financial information performed by the independent auditor of the entity”. A review of interim financial information consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

During the course of our review on these financial statements we are concerned on the following matters:

• The Insurance Ordinance, 2000 has enhanced the requirement of minimum capital to Rs. 300 million upto end of the year 2010; the Company does not find itself in a position to increase its paid up capital; and does not comply with the solvency requirements.

• The Company could not reconcile its accounts with Pakistan Insurance Corporation Limited (PICL): and the amount due to insurer and reinsurer of Rs. 1,448,238 and sundry receivables of Rs. 265,666 are not supported by any documents.

• The commercial operations of the Company were suspended from January, 1, 2003, thus substantiating the company’s inability to continue as a going concern.

• Due to discontinued operations, depreciation for the 2nd quarter ended June, 30 2011 amounting to Rs. 28,033 has not been charged in these condensed interim financial statements. If the depreciation would have been charged the net loss offer tax in the 2nd quarter would have increased to Ps. 90,143.


Based on our review, and subject to the facts stated above, we are unable to conclude that the accompanying condensed interim financial information is prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with approved accounting standards as applicable in Pakistan, for interim financial reporting.

Other Matters

The figures for quarter ended June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2010 in the condensed interim profit and loss account, condensed interim statement of premium, condensed interim statement of claims, condensed interim statement of expenses and condensed interim statement of investment income have not been reviewed and we do not express a conclusion on them.
