Auditor’s Responsibility for the Audit of the Financial Statement

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statementas a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or error and toissue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is ahigh level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance withSAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arisefrom fraud or error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate theycould reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these financial audit findings including statement. deficiencies in the internalcontrol that we As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statementwhether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsive to thoserisks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis forour opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting from fraud ishigher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusion forgeryintentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.

Our conclusionsare based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor’s report.However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a goingconcern.

Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financial statementincluding the disclosures and whether the financial statement represent the underlyingtransactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.

Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the financial statement thatindividually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statement may be influenced.

From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statement of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditor’s report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about thematter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not becommunicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonablybe expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
