KUALA LUMPUR, June 13 (Bernama) -- Sapura Energy Bhd said “no adjustments are needed for the recoverability and classification of assets or liabilities” after its external auditor raises the issue of it continuing as a going concern in an unqualified opinion on the state of the oil company’s finances for financial year 2024.

“The going concern basis for preparing financial statements is appropriate and no adjustments were necessary to be made to the financial statements relating to the recoverability and classification of the carrying amount of assets or the amount and classification of liabilities,” it said in a stock exchange filing. 

Sapura Energy said it expects that a mutually beneficial scheme of arrangement will likely achieve majority support of creditors.

“This is because it will be able to offer higher recovery under the scheme of arrangement compared to the recovery under liquidation, and that the group has sufficient funds to sustain its operations until such a scheme is concluded,” it added.

Sapura Energy said this in response to its external auditor’s unqualified opinion with material uncertainty on the group’s ability to continue as a going concern for its audited financial statements for the financial year ended Jan 31, 2024 (AFS 2024).

Ernst & Young PLT has indicated the existence of material uncertainties in the group’s AFS 2024 and that they may cast significant doubt on Sapura Energy’s ability to continue as a going concern.

The auditor said Sapura Energy’s current liabilities exceeded their current assets “by RM14.5 billion and RM2.2 billion respectively, and the group is facing severe liquidity constraints.”

It noted that the company  is “highly dependent on obtaining extensions for restraining orders; favourable outcomes of the legal claims for the terminated engineering and construction projects; and the successful and timely implementation of the proposed scheme of arrangements which requires Sapura Energy and its companies to secure approvals from at least 75 per cent of the scheme creditors in the court-convened meetings.”

"Should the going concern basis for the preparation of the financial statement be no longer appropriate, adjustments would have to be made in the financial statements relating to the amounts and classification of the assets and liabilities,” it added. “No such adjustments have been made to these financial statements."
