Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Results

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial resultsas 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 a high levelof assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAs willalways detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraudor error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate they couldreasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis ofthese financial results.

Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial resultswhether 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.

Under Section 143(3)(i)of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether the company hasadequate internal financial controls with reference to financial statements in place andthe operating effectiveness of such controls.

If we conclude that a materialuncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to therelated disclosures in the financial results or if such disclosures are Inadequate tomodify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to thedate of our auditor’s report. However future events or conditions may cause theCompany to cease to continue as a going concern.
