Audited Financial Statements

We have audited the statements of financial position as at December 31, 1998 and 1997, and the related statements of revenues and expenditure for the years then ended of Rama IX Art Museum Foundation. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Foundation's management as to their correctness and completeness of the presentation. Our responsibility is to express and opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

Except as discussed in the third and fourth paragraphs, we conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance as to whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statrment presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

We were not present at the physical stock taking of supplies as at December 31, 1998 and 1997, of which the value was Baht 3.40 million and Baht 3.55 million, repectively because we were not appointed auditors of the Foundation at that time. We were unable to satisfy ourselves as of the quantities of the supplies by means of other auditing procedures because the volume of accounting transactions would not be commensurate with the expense to reconcile the related transactions.

As discussed in Note 3.4 to the financial statements, value of donated art works estimated by the individual artists as at December 31, 1998 and 1997 was Baht 13.59 million and Baht 13.77 million, respectively. We were unable to satisfy ourselves as of the value of the art works by means of other auditing procedure because there was no market price for comparison.

In our opinion, except for the effect of adjustment on the financial statements for 1998 and 1997, which might have been determined to be necessary had we been able to audit the quantities of supplied as dicusses in the third paragraph and the value of donated art works as dicussed in the fourth paragraph, the aforementioned financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Rama IX Art Museum Foundation as at December 31, 1998 and 1997, and the income and expenditure for the years then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles
