You may be required from time to time lodge information to various authorities including ASX and ASIC. The Company may be required to provide information about you to these authorities. You agree to provide to the Chairman promptly all information that may be required for these purposes without limitation.

You should be aware that under the law and the Company's Constitution you will generally not be entitled to attend any part of a board meeting or to vote, on any matter on which you have a material personal interest unless the other directors unanimously decide otherwise. Any material interests are required to be disclosed in the board minutes, the annual report, and the accounts under the Corporations Act (2001) and the Listing Rules of ASX.
