In late 2003 or 2004, Mr Ng assisted in investigations conducted by the Commercial Affairs Department ("CAD") in relation to the affairs of a company incorporated in Singapore. Mr Ng was interviewed by the CAD in his capacity as an audit partner of Messrs Ernst & Young, which had provided audit and other services to the company under investigation. He was not the subject of investigations and was not involved in the management of the aforesaid company at any time whatsoever.

Mr Ng was a director of Kengly Offset Printing Pte Ltd ("Kengly"), a company incorporated in Singapore sometime in 1979. Kengly was a dormant company when he joined as a director on 25 March 1980. Sometime in late 1981/early 1982, or thereabouts, summons were issued by the Registry of Companies (now known as the Accounting and Regulatory Authority of Singapore) against the directors for failure to hold its annual general meeting and file its annual return within the requisite period. The matter was resolved upon payment of a penalty of about S$200. Subsequently, Mr Ng resigned as a director of Kengly on 30 April 1982.
