We expect boards to be effective in safeguarding shareholder     interests and they should have the right skills and experience to take the     company's strategy forward.

We     also place particular importance on boards setting appropriate standards     and values for the company both in terms of corporate responsibility and     also on doing the right thing in the way companies make decisions. 4.There are no intentions to achieve a material change in the Company's     capital structure, in particular as regards the ration between own funds     and external funds and the dividend policy.
