WESTPOWER LIMITED
STATEMENT OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES
For The Year Ended 31 March 2006
The financial statements presented are for the reporting entity Westpower Limited. Westpower Limited is a Lines Company registered under the Companies Act 1993.
The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Electricity (Information Disclosure) Requirements 2004.
The measurement base adopted is that of historical cost except for the revaluation of certain fixed assets.
(a) Sales
Sales shown in the Statement of Financial Performance comprise the amounts received and receivable by the Group for goods and services supplied to customers in the ordinary course of business.
Lines Charges represent income charged to Energy Retailers based on their meter readings during the period. An allowance is made for unbilled Lines Charges from Energy Retailers to the end of the period.
(b) Investments
The parent company's investment in ElectroNet Services Limited is stated at cost.
Sinking Fund Investments are shown at cost plus accumulated interest.
Other Investments are stated at cost.
Dividend income is accounted for on a cash basis. Interest income is accounted for as earned.
(c) Fixed Assets and Depreciation
(i) Valuation
Fixed Assets comprise:
Distribution System Assets (being the network system consisting of distribution and transmission lines and cables, zone substations, distribution transformers, protection and control equipment, communications equipment and metering).
Other Assets (being land, buildings, plant and equipment, motor vehicles, furniture and fittings).
Distribution System Assets were revalued to Depreciated Replacement Cost which incorporates a valuation based on the engineering optimisation of the system and its components after allowing for depreciation. The valuation was conducted by KPMG in conjunction with Kerslake and Partners, Registered Valuers, as at 31 March 2004.
Land and Buildings were revalued to market value as at 31 March 2004. The valuation was conducted by Coast Valuations Limited, registered valuers.
All other fixed assets are valued at cost less accumulated depreciation where applicable.
Distribution equipment is revalued on a cyclical basis with no individual asset being included at a valuation made more than three years previously.
Additions between revaluations are recorded at cost.
(ii) Depreciation
Distribution Assets are depreciated using the straight line method at rates which amortise the cost or valuation less estimated residual value over their economic lives.
The main basis are periods not exceeding:
Electricity Distribution System 15 - 70 years
Other Assets are depreciated using rates which write off the cost or valuation of the fixed assets over their expected economic lives as below:
Buildings 1% to 2.5% SL
Motor Vehicles 20% to 25% DV
Plant and equipment 10% to 50% DV
Furniture and fittings
including computers 20% to 48% DV
Profits and losses on disposal are calculated as the difference between the carrying amount of the asset at the time of disposal and the proceeds of the disposal. Any depreciation recovered and any loss on sale is included in the operating result of the Group in the year of the disposal.
(d) Inventories
Stocks and work-in-progress are stated at the lower of cost and net realisable value.
The cost of stocks is determined on a weighted average basis.
Some stocks may be subject to retention of title clauses on purchase.
The cost of work-in-progress includes materials, and a portion of direct labour and production overhead appropriate to the stage of completion attained.
(e) Debtors
Debtors are stated at estimated realisable value after providing for debts where collection is doubtful.
(f) Taxation
The taxation charge against the profit for the year is the estimated liability in respect of that profit and is calculated after allowance for permanent differences and timing differences not expected to reverse in future periods. This is the partial basis for the calculation of deferred taxation.
The Company follows the liability method of accounting for deferred taxation. Future taxation benefits attributable to losses carried forward or timing differences are recognised in the financial statements only where there is virtual certainty of realisation.
(g) Goods and Services Tax
All items in the financial statements are net of Goods and Services Tax except for Debtors and Creditors which are shown in the Statement of Financial Position inclusive of GST.
(h) Financial Instruments
Westpower and its subsidiaries are party to financial instrument arrangements as part of everyday operations. These instruments include bank accounts, debtors, creditors, borrowings and interest rate swaps.
Revenues and expenses in relation to all financial instruments are recognised in the Statement of Financial Performance.
Unrealised revenue and expenses associated with electricity hedges are not recognised in the financial statements. Realised revenue and expenses are recognised in the Statement of Financial Performance on maturity of the hedging contracts and are incorporated as part of the cost of electricity.
All financial instruments are recognised in the Statement of Financial Position, with the exceptions of contingent liabilities and interest rate swaps which are disclosed by way of a note to the financial statements.
(i) Changes in Accounting Policies
There have been no changes in accounting policies. All other policies have been applied on a basis consistent with the previous year.

Note 8. Financial Instruments
Credit Risk
Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to credit risk principally
consist of bank accounts, accounts receivable and investments.
The Company places its cash with high quality financial institutions and limits the amount of exposure
to any one financial institution. There is a high concentration of credit risk to Trustpower.
The maximum exposure to credit risk at balance date is the fair value of the instruments as
stated in the Statement of Financial Position.
Fair Values
For all financial instruments other than the interest rate swaps and the shareholding in
International Panel and Lumber (West Coast) Limited the fair value is equivalent to the
carrying amount as stated in the Statement of Financial Position. Borrowings are planned
to be run to maturity. The fair value of the interest rate swaps at 31 March 2006
is $0 (2005 $0).
The fair value of the shares in International Panel and Lumber (West Coast) Limited is $95,400
(2005 $95,400). This represents the value of the 30,000 shares based on the value of net assets
as at 31 January 2005.
Currency Risk
The Company has minimal currency risk given that financial instruments are principally transacted in
New Zealand dollars. Forward exchange contracts may be employed by the Company to manage
exposure to currency fluctuations.
Interest Rate Risk
Interest rate risk is low as borrowings have fixed interest rates except for the Short Term
Advance Facility for $15,000,000 (2005 $7,000,000) .
The contract amount of interest rates swaps held at 31 March 2006 is $0 (2005 $0).

REPORT OF THE AUDITOR-GENERAL
TO THE READERS OF THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS OF WESTPOWER LIMITED FOR THE YEAR ENDED 31 MARCH 2006
We have audited the financial statements of Westpower Limited on pages 1 to 16. The financial statements provide information about the past financial performance of Westpower Limited and its financial position as at 31 March 2006. This information is stated in accordance with the accounting policies set out on pages 1 to 4.
Directors' responsibilities
The Commerce Commission's Electricity Information Disclosure Requirements 2004 made under section 57T of the Commerce Act 1986 require the Directors to prepare financial statements which give a true and fair view of the financial position of Westpower Limited as at 31 March 2006, and the results of its operations and cash flows for the year ended on that date.
Auditor's responsibilities
Section 15 of the Public Audit Act 2001 and Requirement 30 of the Electricity Information Disclosure Requirements 2004 require the Auditor-General to audit the financial statements. It is the responsibility of the Auditor-General to express an independent opinion on the financial statements and report that opinion to you.
The Auditor-General has appointed Tony Uttley of Audit New Zealand to undertake the audit.
Basis of opinion
An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence relevant to the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. It also includes assessing:
§ the significant estimates and judgements made by the Directors in the preparation of the financial statements; and
§ whether the accounting policies are appropriate to Westpower Limited's circumstances, consistently applied and adequately disclosed.
We conducted the audit in accordance with the Auditing Standards published by the Auditor General, which incorporate the Auditing Standards issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of New Zealand. We planned and performed our audit so as to obtain all the information and explanations which we considered necessary in order to provide us with sufficient evidence to obtain reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatements, whether caused by fraud or error. In forming our opinion, we also evaluated the overall adequacy of the presentation of information in the financial statements.
Other than in our capacity as auditor acting on behalf of the Auditor-General, we have no relationship with or interests in Westpower Limited1.
Unqualified opinion
We have obtained all the information and explanations we have required.
In our opinion:
§ proper accounting records have been maintained by Westpower Limited as far as appears from our examination of those records; and
§ the financial statements of Westpower Limited on pages 1 to 16:
(a) comply with generally accepted accounting practice in New Zealand; and
(b) give a true and fair view of Westpower Limited's financial position as at 31 March 2006 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the year ended on that date; and
