Explanatory Notes

  1. In relation to items 2 and 3 above, further information on Prof Cham Tao Soon and Mr Ban Song Long is set out in "Additional information on Directors seeking re-appointment pursuant to Rule 720(6) of the Listing Manual of the SGX-ST" on pages 140 to 143 of the Annual Report 2020.
  2. Ordinary Resolution 7 proposed in item 7 above, if passed, will empower the Directors to issue shares and to make or grant instruments (such as warrants or debentures) convertible into shares and to issue shares in pursuance of such instruments, up to the limits specified therein, from the date of the AGM until the date of the next Annual General Meeting. For the purpose of determining the aggregate number of shares that may be issued, the total number of issued shares (excluding treasury shares and subsidiary holdings) will be calculated based on the total number of issued shares (excluding treasury shares and subsidiary holdings) of the Company at the time that this Resolution is passed, after adjusting for new shares arising from the conversion or exercise of any convertible securities or share options or vesting of share awards which were issued and are outstanding or subsisting at the time that this Resolution is passed, and any subsequent bonus issue, consolidation or subdivision of shares. As at 8 March 2021, the Company did not have treasury shares or subsidiary holdings.
  3. Ordinary Resolution 8 proposed in item 8 above, if passed, will empower the Directors to exercise the power of the Company to purchase or acquire its issued ordinary shares, until the date of the next Annual General Meeting. The Company intends to use internal sources of funds, external borrowings, or a combination of internal resources and external borrowings, to finance purchases or acquisitions of its shares. The amount of financing required for the Company to purchase or acquire its shares, and the impact on the Company's financial position, cannot be ascertained as at the date of this Notice as these will depend on, inter alia, whether the shares are purchased or acquired out of capital and/or profits of the Company, the aggregate number of shares purchased or acquired, and the consideration paid at the relevant time. Purely for illustrative purposes only, the financial effects of an assumed purchase or acquisition by the Company of 29,884,658 shares on 8 March 2021 representing 8% of the issued shares (excluding treasury shares and subsidiary holdings) as at that date, at a purchase price equivalent to the Maximum Price per share, in the case of a market purchase and an off-market purchase respectively, based on the audited financial statements of the Group and the Company for the financial year ended 31 December 2020 and certain assumptions, are set out in Paragraph 2.7 of the Company's letter to shareholders dated 5 April 2021 (the
    "Letter").
    Please refer to the Letter for further details.
  4. Ordinary Resolution 9 proposed in item 9 above, if passed, will empower the Directors to grant options under the Plan, and to allot and issue shares pursuant to the exercise of such options provided that the aggregate number of shares to be issued pursuant to the Plan shall not exceed 10% of the total number of issued Shares of the Company (excluding treasury shares and subsidiary holdings) from time to time.
  5. Ordinary Resolutions 10 and 11 proposed in items 10 and 11 above, are proposed in anticipation of Rule 210(5)(d)(iii) of the Listing Manual of the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited ("SGX-ST") which will take effect from 1 January 2022.
    With effect from 1 January 2022, Rule 210(5)(d)(iii) of the Listing Manual of the SGX-ST will provide that a Director is not independent if he has been a Director for an aggregate period of more than nine years and his continued appointment as an independent Director has not been sought and approved in separate resolutions by (a) all shareholders; and (b) shareholders excluding the Directors and the CEO of the Company, and their respective associates.
    Prof Cham Tao Soon is an independent Director who has served as a Director for more than nine years. His length of service as a Director has not compromised his independence and, having regard to all the other relevant circumstances, he has remained independent from Management and provided a strong independent presence on the Board of Directors, being free from any business or other relationship which could materially interfere with the exercise of his judgement.
