The Board notices recent press commentaries regarding staff departures including almost 100 middle management employees over the past nine months. The Company considers that such departures have occurred in the normal course of business due to the competitive business nature of the industry in which the Company operates. The Company has approximately 11,000 employees in total, of which the members of the middle management consist of approximately 1,000 employees. The Company is of the view that the departures described above constituted a small proportion of its employees, and involved primarily employees on the Company’s operations level. The Company promotes internally as well as hires externally to deal with employee turnover. The Company does not believe its operations have been significantly impacted by such departures. The Company further confirms that, apart from Mr. Wang referred to above, no member of the senior management has departed from the Company recently.
