The Company operates within a competitive environment and its performance depends on the individual contributions of the Directors and employees.

Executive remuneration packages are designed to attract, motivate and retain Directors of the calibre necessary to manage the Company's operations and to reward them for enhancing shareholder value. The performance review of the Chief Executive Officer and the determination of his annual remuneration package is undertaken by the Remuneration Committee.
(a) basic annual salary;
(b) health insurance for the Executive Director and his family;
(c) share options; and
(d) bonuses.

The Remuneration Committee establishes the performance levels required for a bonus to be paid or share options to be exercisable. The Remuneration Committee believes that the award of any bonuses should be tied to the interests of the Company's shareholders. The Chief Executive Officer may participate in share incentive schemes recommended by the Remuneration Committee.
The Remuneration Committee currently which meets as required, is responsible for determining the contract terms, remuneration and other benefits of the Executive Directors.

The remuneration of Non-Executive Directors is determined by the Board within the limits set out in the articles of association. None of the Committee members has any personal financial interest in the matters to be decided (other than as shareholders), potential conflicts of interest arising from criss-Directorships, or any day-to-day involvement in running the business. The Committee has access to professional advice from inside and outside the Company at the Company's expense.
The Audit Committee`s prime tasks are to review the scope of the external audit, to receive regular reports from the Company's auditor and to review the half-yearly and annual accounts before they are presented to the Board, focusing in particular on accounting policies and areas of management judgment and estimation.

The Committee is responsible for monitoring the controls which are in force to ensure the integrity of the information reported to the shareholders. The Committee acts as a forum for discussion of internal control issues and contributes to the Board's review of the effectiveness of the Company's internal control and risk management systems and processes.
The Committee also considers annually the need for an internal audit function. It advises the Board on the appointment of external auditors and on their remuneration for both audit and non-audit work, and discusses the nature and scope of the audit with the external auditors.

The Committee, which meets formally at least twice a year, provides a forum for reporting by the Company's external auditors. Meetings are also attended, by invitation, by the Company's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer.
