The main contents of the cumulative voting system are as follows:

(1)   when two or more directors are required to be elected, the cumulative voting method must be adopted;

(2)   when the cumulative voting method is adopted, each share held by a shareholder has equal voting rights in relation to the number of candidates for election as directors;

(3)   the notice of meeting must inform shareholders that the cumulative voting system will be adopted for the resolutions for the election of directors. The persons convening the meeting must prepare ballots suitable for the implementation of the cumulative voting method, and a written explanation of the cumulative voting method, instructions for filling in ballots and the method of counting votes must be provided;

(4)   when the shareholders' general meeting is voting on the resolutions for the election of directors, shareholders may divide their voting rights, and vote a proportional number of the shares held for each of the candidates for election as director. Alternatively, shareholders may concentrate their voting rights, and vote all of the voting rights represented by the shares held in favour on one particular candidate for election as director, or vote part of the voting rights represented by the shares held in favour of a certain number of the candidates for election as director;

(5)   after a shareholder has concentrated the voting rights represented by all of the shares held by him on one or a certain number of candidates for director, he may not exercise his voting rights again in respect of other candidates for director;

(6)   if the total number of votes exercised by a shareholder concentrating his voting rights on one or a certain number of candidates for director exceeds the total number of voting rights represented by the shares held by that shareholder, that shareholder's vote is invalid, and will be deemed to be an abstention. If the total number of votes exercised by a shareholder concentrating his voting rights on one or a certain number of candidates for director is less than the total number of voting rights represented by the shares held by that shareholder, that shareholder's vote is valid, and those voting rights not exercised will be deemed to be abstentions;

(7)   where the total number of votes in favour won by a candidate for director exceeds one-half of the total of number of shares with voting rights represented by shareholders attending the general meeting (based on the non-cumulative number of shares) and the total number of votes in favour exceeds the total number of opposing votes, that candidate will be elected as a director. If the number of directors so elected exceeds the number of positions available for director, then those receiving the most number of votes in favour shall be elected as directors (provided that where those receiving relatively less votes in favour have an equal number of votes in favour, which would cause the number of persons elected to exceed the positions available, then such candidates will be deemed to have not been elected). If an insufficient number of directors are elected at the shareholders' general meeting to fill the positions available, then a further vote will be conducted for the remaining positions, until such point as all positions for director have been elected;

- 36 -

(8)   where the general meeting holds a new round of election for directors in accordance with the requirements set out in paragraph (7) above, the cumulative votes of the shareholders shall be re-calculated based on the number of directors elected in each round of election.

(9)   Independent directors and other members of the board of directors are elected separately.

Article 121 Subject to compliance with all relevant laws and administrative regulations, the shareholders' general meeting may by ordinary resolution remove any director whose term of office has not expired (however this will not prejudice any request for compensation which may be raised pursuant to any contract).
Article 122

Directors may resign prior to the expiration of their term of office. A director may resign by submitting written notice of his resignation to the board of directors, and an independent director must in addition provide explanations of any matters related to his resignation or which he believes should be brought to the attention of shareholders and creditors of the Company.

Subject to Article 123 of these Articles of Association, a director's resignation shall be effected when the written notice of resignation is received by the board of directors. The board of directors shall disclose such resignation within 2 days of receipt of the written notice.

Article 123 If the resignation of a director would lead the board of directors of the Company to have less than the legally required number of directors, then such director's notice of resignation will only become effective after a new director has been appointed to fill the vacancy so caused by his resignation. The remaining members of the board of directors must forthwith convene an extraordinary meeting of shareholders in order to appoint a director to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation. Prior to the shareholders' general meeting resolution to elect the director, the resigning director and remaining directors powers should be reasonably restricted.
If the resignation of an independent director would lead the board of directors of the Company to have less than the minimum proportion of independent directors required by these Articles, then such independent director should continue to perform his/her duties in compliance with the requirements of the law, administrative regulations and the Articles until the commencement of the term of an elected replacement. The board of directors should convene a shareholders' general meeting to elect a new independent director within two months. If a shareholders' general meeting is not convened within the prescribed period, such independent director does not have to perform the duties thereafter.
