Proposal 1. ADOPTION OF AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

The Company seeks shareholders' adoption of the audited financial statements of the Company (the " Audited Financial Statements "), which have been prepared under Financial Reporting Standards in Singapore (" FRSs ") , in respect of the financial year ended December 31, 2020 . Along with the Audited Financial Statements, the Company seeks Shareholders' adoption of the Statement by the Directors and Auditor's Report of the Company in respect of the same financial year.

Adoption of this proposal requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast by shareholders entitled to vote at the Twenty- Second Annual General Meeting of the Company (the " AGM ").

The Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board of Directors") recommends a vote FOR this proposal.

Proposal 2. APPROVAL OF APPOINTMENT OF AUDITORS

The Company seeks Shareholders' approval for the appointment of Deloitte & Touche and Deloitte & Touche LLP as the independent external auditors of the Company to hold such office until the conclusion of the next Annual General Meeting of the Company. The Board of Directors also seeks shareholders' approval to authorize the Board of Directors to fix the remuneration for Deloitte & Touche and Deloitte & Touche LLP in respect of their services to the Company for the financial year ended December 31, 2021 .

Adoption of this proposal requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast by shareholders entitled to vote at the AGM.

The Board of Directors recommends a vote FOR this proposal.

Proposal 3. APPROVAL OF DIRECTORS' REMUNERATION

The Company seeks shareholders' approval on the remuneration of all of the Directors in an aggregate amount not exceeding US$350,000 in respect of their professional services to the Company until the conclusion of the next Annual General Meeting of the Company.

Adoption of this proposal requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast by shareholders entitled to vote at the AGM.

The Company's management recommends a vote FOR this proposal.

Proposal 4. APPROVAL FOR AUTHORITY TO ALLOT AND ISSUE SHARES

The Company is incorporated in Singapore . Under the Companies Act, Chapter 50 of Singapore (the " Companies Act "), the Directors may exercise any power of the Company to issue new Shares only with the prior approval of the shareholders of the Company at a general meeting. Such approval, if granted, is effective from the date of the general meeting at which the approval was given until the date on which the next Annual General Meeting of the Company is held or is required by law to be held, whichever is earlier.

Shareholders' approval is sought to give Directors authority to allot and issue new Shares and other instruments convertible into Shares during the period from the Twenty-Second Annual General Meeting to the earlier of the next Annual General Meeting or the date by which the next Annual General Meeting of the Company is required by law to be held.

Adoption of this proposal requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast by shareholders entitled to vote at the AGM.

The Board of Directors recommends a vote FOR this proposal.

Proposal 5. APPROVAL FOR SHARE PURCHASE MANDATE

The approval of the Share Purchase Mandate authorizing the Company to purchase or acquire its Shares would give the Company the flexibility to undertake Share purchases or acquisitions at any time, subject to market conditions, during the period when the Share Purchase Mandate is in force.

In managing the business of the Company and its subsidiaries (collectively, the " Group "), the Company's management strives to increase shareholders' value by improving, inter alia , the return on equity of the Group. A Share purchase by the Company is one of the ways through which the return on equity of the Group may be enhanced.

A Share purchase is also an available option for the Company to return surplus cash that is in excess of the financial and possible investment needs of the Group to its shareholders. In addition, the Share Purchase Mandate will allow the Company to have greater flexibility over, inter alia , the Company's share capital structure and its dividend policy.

The Company intends to use internal sources of funds or external borrowings or a combination of both to finance the Company's purchase or acquisition of the Shares pursuant to the Share Purchase Mandate. The Directors do not propose to exercise the Share Purchase Mandate to such extent that it would materially and adversely affect the financial position of the Group.

Share repurchase programmes may also help buffer short-term Share price volatility and off-set the effects of short-term speculators and investors and, in turn, bolster shareholder confidence and employee morale.

Adoption of this proposal requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast by shareholders entitled to vote at the AGM.

The Board of Directors recommends a vote FOR this proposal.

OTHER MATTERS

As of the date of this Proxy Statement, the Company does not intend to present and has not been informed that any other person intends to present any business not specified in this Proxy Statement for action at the Twenty- Second Annual General Meeting.

Shareholders are urged to sign the enclosed proxy form and to return it promptly in the enclosed envelope. Proxies will be voted in accordance with shareholders' directions. Signing the proxy form does not affect a shareholder's right to vote at the Twenty- Second Annual General Meeting, and the proxy may be revoked prior to its exercise by appropriate notice to the undersigned.

PROXY SOLICITATION

The Company will pay the cost of preparing and mailing this proxy statement and form of proxy to its shareholders. The Company has retained Mackenzie Partners, Inc. to request banks and brokers to forward copies of these materials to persons for whom they hold Shares and to request authority for execution of the proxies.
