Duties and Responsibilities

The primary responsibility of the Audit Committee is to oversee the Company's financial reporting process on behalf of the board and report the results of their activities to the board.

Management is responsible for the preparation, presentation, and integrity of the Company's financial statements and for the appropriateness of the accounting principles and reporting policies that are used by the Company. The independent accountants are responsible for auditing the Company's financial statements and for reviewing the Company's unaudited interim financial statements.

In carrying out their responsibilities, the policies and procedures of the Committee shall remain flexible, in order to best react to changing conditions and circumstances. The following sections of this charter set forth the principal duties and responsibilities of the Audit Committee, as a guide, with the understanding that the Committee may supplement them as appropriate.
