Detailed Reason (s) for cessation
Ms Wee Yeak Ing ("Ms Wee") had, on 13 May 2020, tendered her resignation as the Group Financial Controller ("GFC") of the Company and its subsidiaries (the "Group") to pursue other career opportunities ("Resignation").

Ms Wee reaffirmed her decision to leave after being given some time by the management of the Group to reconsider her decision to resign, and the board of directors of the Company ("Board") accepted the Resignation on 17 August 2020.

Ms Wee is currently serving her notice period and pursuant to mutual agreement with the Group, her last day of employment with the Group will be 5 September 2020. For the avoidance of doubt, Ms Wee will remain as the GFC of the Group, and will continue to ensure smooth functioning of the operations of the finance team of the Group, until the effective date of her Resignation (i.e. 6 September 2020). The Company is in the process of finding a replacement for the position of GFC or equivalent, and will make the necessary announcement when a suitable candidate is appointed.
