The committee is chaired by a non-executive director and meets as deems appropriate, but at least once a year.

NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS’ FEES
Non-executive directors receive fees for their services on the Board and Board committees. Fees for non-executive directors are recommended by the committee to the Board. The Board recommends these fees to shareholders for approval at the annual general meeting. These fees reward the directors fairly for the time, expertise and service provided to the Board based on an annual benchmarking of non-executive directors fees. No incentives were awarded to non-executive directors during the reporting period.
