Internal Controls Review


Feb 11, 2011

The Board of Directors of Teho International Inc Ltd. (the "Company") refers to the Company's Offer Document dated 25 May 2009 ("Offer Document") in relation to the initial public offering of the Company's shares on the Catalist.

The Board wishes to provide an update where the Audit Committee (the "AC") will, for at least the first two years after our Company's listing, (i) commission the external auditors or a suitable accounting firm to review the adequacy of our Group's system of internal controls; (ii) ensure that all internal control weaknesses are satisfactorily and properly rectified; and (iii) update the SGX-ST on any findings of the external auditors or accounting firm and any follow-up action taken by our Audit Committee.

In this regard, on 30 June 2009, the Board through the recommendation of the AC had appointed Ernst & Young Risk Advisory Services Pte Ltd ("Ernst & Young") to review, recommend and subsequent rectifications follow-up on the Group's internal controls system, and to expand and enhance on its policies and procedures manual. The first review was concluded in December 2009 and was announced on 2 December 2009.

Ernst & Young completed the second review which covered the following processes:

(a) Sales, receivables and collections
(b) Cash and treasury management
(c) Human resources and payroll

A number of areas for improvement were identified relating to internal controls. The AC at its meeting on 9 February 2011 had reviewed the findings and noted that rectification actions have been agreed between Ernst & Young and the Company's management (the "management") to address the areas for improvements, and the management has already implemented and/or will implement such actions by 31 March 2011.

This second review marks the completion of the internal controls review. Going forward, the Audit Committee will conduct its annual review of the internal controls with Ernst & Young conducting the compliance tests at the initial phase of such a review.
