Principle 5: Make timely and balanced
A listed entity should make timely and balanced disclosure
of all matters concerning it that a reasonable person
would expect to have a material effect on the price or
value of its securities.
The Company must comply with the continuous disclosure
requirements of the ASX Listing Rules and Corporation
Act, which requires it to disclose to the ASX any
information concerning the Company that a reasonable
person would expect to have a material effect on the
price or value of the Company’s securities unless certain
exemptions from the requirements apply. To ensure it
meets its continuous disclosure obligations, the Board
itself, through the CEO, is responsible for determining and
approving all continuous disclosure matters.
The Company rigorously polices its continuous disclosure
responsibilities to ensure a fully informed market at all
times. The Company’s Continuous Disclosure Policy is
available on the Company’s website.
The Board recognises the need for Directors and
employees to observe the highest standards of behaviour
and business ethics when engaging in corporate activity
especially in developing jurisdictions.
The Company officers and employees are required to act
in accordance with the law and with the highest ethical
standards and in compliance with Australian and the
laws of each country in which it operates. In addition to
the Trading Policy, on joining the Board, the Directors are
required to sign a Director’s disclosure statement. This
sets out their obligations regarding disclosure of dealing
in the Company’s securities.
Each quarter at formal Board meetings or other
meetings when convened Directors are required to make
disclosures of any matters that may have altered or where
any matter to be discussed by the Board might give rise to
a conflict of interest. Where a conflict of interest may arise
the relevant Director(s) may be asked to leave the meeting
to ensure full and frank discussion of the matter(s) under
consideration for determination.

A listed entity should respect the rights of its security
holders by providing them with appropriate information
and facilities to allow them to exercise those rights
