Presentation of Banque Misr Paris

History of Banque Misr Paris

Ayman FODA, General Manager and
Shérif FARAGUE, Deputy General Manager
welcome you to the site of Banque Misr Paris.

Since it was founded in 1920 by Tala'at Harb, Banque Misr has played an important role in the economic revival of a country that has become a model for the region.

With the agreement of the main financial institutions, the decision to open the Paris branch was taken in 1984. A first branch was opened in 1922 in rue Danielle Casanova (formerly called rue des Petits Champs).

Like the executive team, the branch is staffed by Egyptian and French experts. They fully represent Banque Misr Cairo and its determination to develop trade and investments, especially between Egypt and France.

(Closed annual account as at 31/12/2016)

Within the frame of the execution of the mission which was entrusted to us by your General Manager, we are hereby presenting our report concerning the financial year ending 31 December 2016 relating to :

- Control of the annual accounts of BANQUE MISR, as attached to this report
- Justification of our assessment

The financial statements were approved by the General Management and it is within our duty that we express our opinion on the basis of this audit.

I - Opinion on the annual accounts

We conducted our audit in accordance with applicable professional standards in force in France; those standards that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures, using sample techniques or other methods of selection, to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made, as well as the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements give a true and fair view of the assets and liabilities and of the financial position of the Company at 31 December 2016 and the results of its operations for the year then ended in accordance with French accounting principles.

II - Justification of our assessments

In accordance with the requirements of article L 823-9 of the Commercial Code relating to the justification of our assessments, we inform you the following assessments:

Accounting estimates
Depreciation of accounts receivable:

As indicated in the parts A and 2 of the appendix of the financial statements, the Company establishes depreciations in order to cover the credit risk that may jeopardize the activities. In the context of our assessment of significant estimations for the accounts closing, we examined the control system related to the credit risk follow up and on the counterparts, the collection risk assessment and the credit coverage in assets by using the depreciations on an individual basis.

Country risk provisioning and social commitments:
The company establishes provisions to cover the social commitments and country risk. We examined the assessment methods of the commitments as well as the hypothesis and the used parameters. We also checked the appropriateness of the information provided by the part 2 of the appendix.

These assessments relate in particular to the accounting principles followed and significant estimates adopted as well as the presentation of the financial statements, taken as a whole.
