Remarks :
Under the Guidelines on Real Estate Investment Trusts (“REIT Guidelines”) and the Corporate Governance Guide (“CG Guide”), an independent director is one who is independent of management and free from any business or other relationship that could interfere with the exercise of independent judgement or the ability to act in the best interests of a company. Mr Kee has always satisfied this condition in relation to his role as a Chairman and Director of CapitaMalls Malaysia REIT Management Sdn. Bhd. (“CMRM”), the manager of CapitaMalls Malaysia Trust. However, the CG Guide also required that an independent director should not have been an officer of a related company within the last two years. As Mr Kee was an officer of CapitaLand Limited (a related corporation of CMRM) until 31 July 2009, CMRM had at the time of his appointment designated him as a non-independent director. However, more than two years have passed since Mr Kee’s retirement from CapitaLand Limited. As such, CMRM has now re-designated Mr Kee as an independent director in accordance with the REIT Guidelines and CG Guide.
