Manage the issuance of separate company audited financial statements, including interaction with the external auditors.

4.

6. Ensure the design and implementation of adequate processes and controls to comply with relevant GAAP and to prevent significant deficiencies and material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting and to prevent or detect financial reporting fraud.
