No need to visit the bank. Need a loan or want to deposit a cheque, call and the relationship manager will send someone. Want to know your balance, just sms. Want to transfer funds, just log on.

'In less than four years, we have a customer base of over 100 Banks. As we move ahead, cross-sell and deep-sell is a significant apparatus to growth. And we are experiencing this tipping point.' towards what we call Universal banking (anytime, anywhere, any medium). AurionPro enables its customers in their evolution toward Universal Banking by delivering Domain-Specialized products, e-business services and integration services around the 'core banking system'. The market has now reached a stage where it is inevitable for a Bank, not to have this evolved network of products and services.

Dear Shareholders, AurionPro is not just any other IT company. We are focused and dedicated to the BFSI space. The Company was started by exbankers and therefore we have significant domain knowledge and understanding of not just where the BFSI space stands today, but where we expect it to evolve globally. AurionPro is a company focused on providing products and services to BFSI customers globally, enabling their technology and operations.

We believe that the migration to Universal Banking is inevitable and is a game changer that was experienced in the developed countries and is now being experienced in the emerging countries and soon in the less-developing ones like Africa too. We are in a sweet spot. Of the BFSI technology spend of USD

130 billion, USD 100 billion is our addressable market. Speed and bouquet of products and services are key to enter into a client. AurionPro has successfully carved this market space, through an organic and inorganic growth strategy over the last four years, continually augmenting its basket of products and services, successfully transitioning from a Solutions player to a Product and Services business model. In less than four years, we have a customer base of over 100 Banks. As we move ahead, cross-sell and deep-sell is a significant apparatus to growth. And we are experiencing this tipping point. Within the market, the financial meltdown in 2007 and 2008 has led to newer market conditions and changing needs, where Efficiency, ROI, Risk Management, and Financial Inclusion are now quickly holding Centre-Stage. Our approach and ambition is to help the BFSI players meet their customer and business goals in a manner that optimizes their delivery across the Technology, Operations and Analytics platform. On the path to deliver such an integrated value, AurionPro has also equipped itself to enable a SAAS/Cloud based delivery of financial transactions. We believe we are one of the very few companies to have the triple offering of technology-operations-analytics platform with an existing client base of 100 plus banks in 20 countries. This represents a great opportunity for us to deepen the relationships and increase our margins. We have made beginnings in India and plan to support it with some international wins over next 12 months. In each of the four verticals, we believe there is a strong traction. Product suite Our product suites and modules are developed to address banking applications ranging from cash management, financial supply chain management, treasury, risk management, financial planning, loan origination, Internet banking. We have already established leadership in our Cash Management, Loans and Internet Banking product suites with over 45 South and South East Asian Banks as customers. We see a very high market expansion potential in the newer Emerging markets of Africa, Middle East and Eastern Europe for these products. Further, our focus will also be take newer products - dealPro, fcsmPro and e-corporate banking to the existing as well as the newer emerging countries.

Product Implementation We offer Business Process Management, ("BPM") services, which primarily pertain to improving the efficiency and effectiveness of an organization by automating the organization's business processes. We offer Identity and Access Management ("IAM") services which pertains to the processes involved in identification and authorization of various users across computer networks. We also offer professional services and integration solutions for electronic trading and connectivity solutions. Development of Third Party IP Being an IP led IT solutions company, we collaborate with niche domain players to develop products in Risk, Treasury and Payments market. This has helped us support our clients' software requirements in various vertical spread across domains. Managed Services With client focus on efficiency and domain understanding that enhances their revenues, margins and ROI on technology spend, managed services is emerging as a big opportunity for us. We expect this business go enter scale in the next two years. All of the above put together represent a wide canvas, with a surfeit of opportunities. The AurionPro management has pro-actively planned a series of steps to intensify and augment Management to meet the elevated demands of the next orbit of Growth. As one of the first steps, Vishwanath Prabhu has come on Board. Vishwanath is currently International Head of Consumer Operations for Citigroup Operations and Technology and is based out of London. He brings with him 25 years of global experience in technology and operations, outsourcing, building economies and value and reducing transaction costs. The next few years look very promising for AurioPro. The market is just entering into a sweet spot. Our technologyoperations-analytics platform differentiates us and will help us cross sell and deep sell. And we now have an experienced team and more than 100 banks to cater to. Its time. Thank you for your support as we continue to build AurionPro. Sincerely, Sanjay Desai

FINANCIAL RESOURCES a) ESOP The Board of Directors at their Board Meeting held on 04th September, 2008 and the members at the 11th Annual General Meeting held on 30th September, 2008, approved the issue of 14,64,941 equity shares under Employees Stock Option Scheme - 2008 to eligible permanent employees including Directors of the Company and its subsidiary companies to participate in the future growth of the Company.

Against each of the above, eligible employee is entitled to acquire one equity share of Rs. 10/- each of the company at a price mentioned against the option.

Annual Report 2009-10

Corporate Governance Report Corporate governance is about maintaining an appropriate balance of accountability between three key players: the corporation's owners, the directors whom the owners elect, and the managers whom the directors select. Four of the key elements transparency, fairness, disclosure and accountability of Corporate Governance are embedded as integral parts of the system to direct and manage the affairs of the business and operations of the Company. 1. Company's Philosophy on Corporate Governance Aurionpro is committed to maintain a high standard of corporate governance. The Board of Directors (the Board) is at the core of our corporate governance practice and oversees how the management serves and protects the long term interests of all our stakeholders. In our endeavor to practice sound governance principles, we are guided by following core principles: 1. Transparency & maintaining high disclosure levels To maintain the highest standards of transparency in all aspects of our interactions and dealings and to ensure timely dissemination of all price sensitive information and matters of interest to our stakeholders. 2. Accountability To demonstrate highest level of personal responsibility and continually affirm that employees are responsible to themselves for the pursuit of excellence. 3. Compliances To comply with the laws in all the Countries in which the Company operates. 4. Ethical conduct To conduct the affairs of the company in an ethical manner. 5. Stakeholders' interests To promote the interests of all stakeholders including of customers, shareholders, employees, lenders, vendors, governments and the community. A Code of Business Conduct & Ethics has been adopted for Directors and the Senior Management and posted on the website of the Company (www.aurionpro.com). All Board members and senior management have affirmed compliance with the code for the period ended 31st March 2010. A detailed Management Discussion and Analysis report forms part of this Annual Report. 2. Board of Directors The Board of Directors of the company consists of 8 directors. Two of the Directors are Executive Directors, two are Non Executive Directors and the remaining four are Independent Directors. The Board of Aurionpro, therefore, has a healthy blend of Executive and Non-Executive Directors. Moreover, all the Non-Executive and Independent Directors are eminent professionals, and bring the wealth of their professional expertise and experience to the management of the Company.

Schedule 14 : Significant Accounting Policies A. Significant Accounting Policies to the Consolidated Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss Account 1. Principles of Consolidation The consolidated financial statements relate to Aurionpro Solutions Limited (“the Company”) and its Fifteen subsidiary companies and the joint ventures (herein after collectively referred to as “Group”). The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the following basis. a. The financial statements of the Company and its subsidiary companies are combined on a line- by- line basis by adding together the book values of like items of assets , liabilities, income and expenses after fully eliminating intra-group balances and intra- group transactions resulting in unrealized profits or losses being eliminated in accordance with Accounting Standard (AS) 21-“Consolidated Financial Statements “ issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. b. In case of foreign subsidiaries, revenue items are consolidated at the average rate prevailing during the period. All monetary assets and liabilities are converted at rates prevailing at the end of the year. While non-monetary assets and liabilities are recorded at the exchange rate prevailing on the date of the transaction or closing rate as applicable. Any exchange difference arising on consolidation of integral foreign operation and Non Integral Foreign operations is recognized in the profit and loss account and Currency Translation Reserve respectively. c. Investments in subsidiaries are eliminated and differences between costs of investment over the net assets on the date of investment, or on the date of the financial statements immediately preceding the date of investment, in subsidiary companies is recognized as goodwill or capital reserve, as the case may be. d. Minority Interest's share of net profit or Loss of consolidated subsidairies for the period is identified and adjusted against the income of the Group in order to arrive at the net income attributable to the shareholders of the Company. e. Minority Interest's share for net assets of consolidated Subsidaries is identified and presented in the consolidated Balance sheet as separate items from liabilities and share holders` equity f.

Interest in a Jointly Controlled entity is reported using proportionate Consolidation.

g. As far as possible, the consolidated financial statements are prepared using uniform accounting policies for like transactions and other events in similar circumstances and are presented in the same manner as the Company's Standalone financial statements. 2. Investments other than investment in subsidiaries are accounted as per Accounting Standard 13

“Accounting for

Investments” issued by The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. 3. Other Significant Accounting policies 1

Method of Accounting The financial statements are prepared under historical cost convention and in accordance with the generally accepted accounting principles in India and provisions of the Companies Act, 1956 read with the Companies (Accounting standards) rules, 2006 ( Accounting Standards Rules).

2

Use of estimates The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that effect the reported amount of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and disclosure of contingent liabilities on the date of financial statements. The recognition, measurement, classification or disclosures of an item or information in the financial statements have been made relying on these estimates to a greater 100

extent. 3

Revenue Recognition Revenue from software development and consulting services is recognized either on time and material basis or fixed price basis, as the case may be.
