We have reviewed this interim report in accordance with the recommendation issued by FAR.
A review is considerably limited in scope compared with an audit.
Nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the interim report does not comply with the requirements of the Exchange and Clearing Operations Act and the Annual Accounts Act.
