EXPLANATORY NOTES ON SPECIAL BUSINESS :

I. Pursuant to Resolution 10

The Proposed Resolution 10, if passed, will empower the Directors to allot and issue shares in the Company up to an amount not exceeding in total 10% of the issued share capital of the Company for such purposes as the Directors in their absolute discretion consider would be in the interest of the Company. In order to avoid any delay and costs involved in convening a general meeting, it is thus appropriate to seek shareholders’ approval. This authority will unless revoked or varied by the Company in general meeting, expire at the next Annual General Meeting.

II. Pursuant to Resolution 11 and Resolution 12

The Shareholders’ Mandate under Ordinary Resolution 11 and Ordinary Resolution 12 were intended to renew the shareholders’ mandate granted by the shareholders of the Company at an Annual General Meeting of the Company held on 17 June 2004. The proposed renewal of shareholders’ mandate is to facilitate transactions in the normal course of business of the Company and its subsidiaries (“the Group”) which are transacted from time to time with the specified classes of related parties, provided that they are carried out on an arm’s length basis and on the Group’s normal commercial terms and are not prejudicial to the shareholders on terms not more favourable to the related parties than those generally available to the public and are not to the detriment of the minority shareholders.

By obtaining the Shareholders’ Mandate on an annual basis, the necessity to convene separate general meetings from time to time to seek shareholders’ approval as and when such recurrent related party transactions occur would not arise. This would reduce substantial administrative time, inconvenience and expenses associated with the convening of such meetings, without compromising the corporate objectives of the Group or adversely affecting the business opportunities available to the Group.
