ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REPORT

30TH SEPTEMBER 1975


In connection with our examination of the financial statements of Grenada Cocoa Industry
Board for the year ended 30th September 1975, we have reviewed the additional information presented
on the following pages which has been taken primarily from accounting and other records of the
board but which is not, in our opinion, necessary for a fair and reasonable view of its financial position
or results of operations.

Our examination was intended primarily for the purpose of formulating an opinion on the basic
financial statements taken as a whole and .was not such as to enable us to express an opinion as to the
correctness of all the details of the additional information. However, nothing came to our attention
which, in our judgment, would indicate that such additional information is not fair and reasonable.
