Financial statements

Our Board maintains a system of internal controls designed to provide reasonable assurance that assets are safeguarded, transactions are properly authorized and recorded in compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements, and reliable financial information is available on a timely basis for preparation of consolidated financial statements. These statements are audited by an independent external auditor appointed by the Board, who provides their opinion on the Board's consolidated financial statements.
