The Board's comments on this appointment (including rationale, selection criteria, and the search and nomination process)
The NC and Board have assessed and are satisfied that Mr Eng's considerable experience and proven track record will be able to contribute to, amongst others, the restructuring of the Group to benefit all stakeholders, notwithstanding his current executive role held in Ausgroup Limited. Mr Eng has over 25 years of senior management, business development and merger & acquisitions experience in various industries. In particular, under his leadership, AusGroup Limited successfully restructured the balance sheet of the company and paved the way for its recovery. Accordingly, the Board has approved the appointment of Mr Eng as Acting Group General Manager.
Whether appointment is executive, and if so, the area of responsibility
Executive. Mr Eng is responsible for overseeing the strategic planning, corporate management, business development and performance of the Group.
Job Title (e.g. Lead ID, AC Chairman, AC Member etc.)
Acting Group General Manager
Professional qualifications
Diploma in Mechanical Engineering
Any relationship (including immediate family relationships) with any existing director, existing executive officer, the issuer and/ or substantial shareholder of the listed issuer or of any of its principal subsidiaries
Mr Eng is a consultant to Ezion Holdings Limited, the controlling shareholder of the Company.
Conflict of interests (including any competing business)
Mr Eng is currently the Executive Director of AusGroup Limited ("AusGroup"), an engineering contractor servicing mainly clients from resources and oil and gas industries and operates primarily in Australia. The Group's business focus is in renewable energy and marine and offshore oil and gas services ("O&G"). The O&G business is primarily on the provision of ship chartering services.

Although the 2 groups serve similar industries, they are with completely different business focus. One is engineering service provider while the other is owner and operator. In addition, they do not have common business partners or clients, and there are no transactions between the 2 groups other than the sale of Accommodation Village (as announced by the Company on 20 February 2019).

Based on the above, the Company is of the view that there will be no impact to Mr Eng's ability to pursue the interest of one business over another. Mr Eng will also take appropriate steps to ensure conflict of interest is minimised and ensure adequate resources will be allocated to the Company.
