Important information for ASX Listed Entities

Company Announcements Office - Changes to Operating Hours
ASX has recently undertaken a review of the hours of operation of the Company Announcements Office, which are currently from 8.30 am to 8.30 pm EST/EDST.

That review has highlighted the very low volume of announcements lodged late in the day, between the hours of 7.30 pm and 8.30 pm. Accordingly, ASX has decided that for a trial period, the Company Announcements Office will close at 7.30 pm instead of 8.30 pm. The trial period will start on Monday 3 April 2006, to coincide with the end of Daylight Saving, and end on Friday October 27 2006 prior to the resumption of Daylight Saving.

Please note this does not affect your ability to lodge announcements either electronically or by fax at any time over a 24-hour period.

A further update will be issued prior to at the end of the trial.

Company Announcements Office - Easter
In accordance with our usual practice at Easter the Company Announcements Office will close at 4.30 pm EST on Thursday, 13 April 2006.
