Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditors' report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists.

Identify and assess the risk of material misstatement of the financialstatements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsiveto those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide abasis for our opinion.

If we conclude that a material uncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in auditors' report to the related disclosures in thefinancial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Ourconclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of our auditor'sreport. However future events or conditions may cause the company to cease to continue asa going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent theunderlying transaction and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.'
Materiality is the magnitude of misstatement in the financial statements thatindividually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may be influenced.
