The Company’s capital management strategy is to ensure that it maintains a strong credit rating and healthy capital ratios in order to support its business and maximize shareholder value. The Company manages its capital structure and makes adjustments to it, in light of changes in economic conditions. To maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may adjust the dividend payment to shareholders or issue new shares. The Company is not subject to any externally imposed capital requirements.

It is the Company’s policy to disclose information on whether it has complied with the loan covenants it has entered into with its lenders and all collaterals and guarantees of the loans. Such information is part of the audited financial statements attested by an independent external auditor.
