Audited Financial Statements

We have audited the balance sheets of Rama IX Art Museum Foundation as at December 31, 2002 and 2001 and the related statements of income and expenditure and changes in funds' equity for the years 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 audits.

Except as discussed in the third paragraph, 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 statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

As discussed in Note 4.4 to the financial statements, value of donated artworks estimated by the individual artists as at December 31, 2002 and 2001 was Baht 15.60 million and Baht 15.48 respectively. 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 2002 and 2001, which might have been determined to be necessary, had we been able to audit the value of donated artworks as discussed in the third 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, 2002 and 2001 and the income and expenditure and changes in funds' equity for the years then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

As discussed in Note 5 to the financial statements, the Foundation has elected to discontinue the application of certain accounting standards for the current year's financial statements and the prior year's financial statements have been restated to conform to the current accounting and reporting policies.
