Audited Financial Statements

We have audited the balance sheets of Rama IX Art Museum Foundation as at December 31, 1999, and the related statements of income and expenditure and changes in funds' equity for the year then ended. 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 an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. The financial statements of the Foundation (except statement of changes in funds' equity) for the year ended December 31, 1998 which are presented for comparison, were audited by another auditor of the same firm, whose report thereon dated May 17, 1999 expressed an qualified opinion regarding no presentation at the physical stock taking of supplies and value of art collection estimated by the individual artists.

Except as discussed in the next paragraph, we conducted our audit 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 statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

We did not present at the physical stock taking of supplies as at December 31, 1998, because the volume of accounting transactions would not be commensurate with the expense to reconcile the related transactions. In addition, we were unable to satisfy ourselves as of the quantities of the supplies by means of other auditing procedures.

As discussed in Note 4.4 to the financial statements, value of donated artworks estimated by the individual artists as at December 31, 1999 was Baht 13.92 million. We were unable to satisfy ourselves as to the value of the artworks 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 1999, which might have been determined to be necessary had we been able to audit the quantities of supplies as dicussed in the third paragraph and the value of donated artworks as dicussed in the fourth paragraph, the financial statements referred to in the first paragraph present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Rama IX Art Museum Foundation as at December 31, 1999, and the income and expenditure and changes in funds' equity for the year then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

As discussed in Note 3 to the financial statments, the Foundation has presented statment of changes in funds' equity for the year ended December 31, 1998, for comparison with the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 1999, and we have audited such statements. In our opinion, such statements are appropriately presented.

Notes to The Financial Statements
For the Years ended December 31, 1999 and 1998

1. OBJECTIVES OF THE FOUNDATION

Office of the National Culture Commission approved the setup of the Rama IX Art Museum Foundation (“the Foundation”) on August 15, 1996. The registration for the setup of the Foundation was completed on October 4, 1996, with the following objectives:

1.1 To manage the Project of Art Exhibition in the honor of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Supreme Artist, in Art and Culture, commemoration of the 50th anniversary of His Majesty The King’s accession to the throne.

1.2 To be responsible to fund raising in order to build up and manage a modern art museum to be named in the honor of His Majesty The King.

1.3 To support and develop knowledge of art. To collect and promote Thai artworks in the country and throughout the other countries around the world.

1.4 To promote and support the attitude to preserve the Thai contemporary art.

1.5 To organize a quality art publishing house concentrating in conventional publications and electronic educational aids for further understanding of Thai contemporary arts and to support and develop artistical knowledge.

1.6 To organize with other non-profit organization, education institution, art activities and others which have its same objectives in order to stimulate more grants and funding for public and young artists.

1.7 To encourage local and international artistic and cultural collaborations in order to support objectives of the foundation.

2. FUNDING POLICIES

The Foundation was established with the initial funds of Baht 200,000. The Foundation may raise additional funds as follows:.

2.1 Funds provided by Governmental organizations or state enterprises, or others in the country.

2.2 Funds or properties donated by charitable persons or organizations in the country or abroad.

2.3 Fund or properties bequeathed under a will or other juristic acts, provided that there are no conditions obligating the Foundation to any liabilities or whatsoever.

2.4 Interest and dividends arising from funds and the property which constitute the assets of the Foundation.

2.5 Contributions from the usage of the property or facilities of the Foundation, or services provided by the Foundation with free of charge.

3. BASIS OF PREPARATION OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Foundation maintains its accounting records in Thai Baht and prepares its statutory financial statements in the Thai language in conformity with accounting standards in Thailand.

The Foundation had presented the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 1998, which did not include the statement of changes in funds' equity because the presentation of this financial statement wad not required by Thai Accounting Standard at that time. Currently, new Thai Accounting Standard No. 35 "Presentation of Financial Statements" requires the presentation of such statement. As a result, the Foundation has presented such statement for 1998 for comparison with the financial statements for 1999.

The Foundation does not present the statement of cash flows for the years ended December 31, 1999 and 1998 due to consideration that the cash flows statement is not relevant to the decision making of users of financial statements and the cost of preparing the cash flows statement may exceed the benefits derived from such statements.
