Audit Committee Approval Policy

The Audit Committee approves all proposed services and related fees to be rendered by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm before the firm is engaged. Services to be provided by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm generally include audit services, audit-related services and certain tax services. All fees for the annual audit or audit-related services to be performed by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm are itemized for the purposes of approval. The Audit Committee approves the scope and timing of the external audit plan for the Company and focuses on any matters that may affect the scope of the audit or the independence of the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. In that regard, the Audit Committee receives certain representations from the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm regarding their independence and the permissibility under the applicable laws and regulations of any services provided to the Company outside the scope of those otherwise allowed.

The Audit Committee may delegate its approval authority to the Chairman of the Audit Committee to the extent allowed by law. In the case of any delegation, the Chairman must disclose all approval determinations to the full Audit Committee as soon as possible after such determinations have been made.
