Pursuant to its issuance and listing of securities in the United
States under registration statements filed with the SEC, ICICI Bank
files annual report in Form 20-F with the SEC as required by US
securities laws and regulations. These regulations require that this
annual report include financial statements prepared according to a
comprehensive body of accounting principles with reconciliation to
generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (US GAAP).
When ICICI Bank first listed its securities in the United States in
2000, generally accepted accounting principles in India (Indian GAAP)
were not considered a comprehensive body of accounting principles under
US laws and regulations. Accordingly, ICICI Bank had included US GAAP
financial statements in its annual reports in Form 20-F till fiscal year
ended March 31, 2005. However, pursuant to a significant expansion of
Indian accounting standards, Indian GAAP constitutes a comprehensive
body of accounting standards. Accordingly, from fiscal year ended March
31, 2006 onwards ICICI Bank includes in its annual report in Form 20-F,
consolidated financial statements according to Indian GAAP, with a
reconciliation of profit after tax and net worth to net income and
stockholders' equity under US GAAP and a description of significant
differences between Indian GAAP and US GAAP.
It may be noted that there are significant differences in the basis
of accounting between US GAAP and Indian GAAP primarily relating to
determination of allowance for loan losses, amortization of fees and
costs, accounting for securities and derivatives, accounting for
securitizations, accounting for business combinations, compensation
cost, deferred tax and consolidation.
