performance of the Group and prevailing market and industry statistics; and

their obligation in bringing objectivity and independent judgment on matters

The Nomination and Remuneration Committee (“NRC”) is responsible for recommending to
the Board the policy framework on terms of employment and on all elements of the
Directors’ remuneration and remuneration package for the Executive Directors and key
The NRC is authorised to review and recommend the annual bonus and salary increment
of the Executive Directors and senior management of the Company.
Directors’ Remuneration is decided by the Board with the Director concerned abstaining
from deliberations and voting accordingly.
The NRC shall, from time to time, consider the need to enhance one or more aspects of the
remuneration packages in tandem with development in the market place. Accordingly, the
NRC may seek professional advice from outside sources for the purpose of formulating an
attractive and competitive compensation and benefits package to attract, retain and
motivate talents. It’s nevertheless, the ultimate responsibility of the Board to approve the
remuneration of the Directors.
3. THE NRC SHALL:
- Ensure that Director, whether executive or non-executive, should abstain from
discussion and from participating in decision of their remuneration packages.
- Recommend and advise the Board the remuneration and terms of conditions
(and where appropriate, severance payments) of Executive Directors.
- Recommend to the Board level, composition and periodic review of Directors’
- Seek comparative information on remuneration and conditions of service in
comparable organisations and market practice.
- When considering severance payments, the NRC should bear in mind that it must
represent the public interest and avoid any inappropriate use of public funds.
Care should be taken to avoid determining a severance package that the public
might deem to be excessive.
