Audit Committee

Audit Committee

Our audit committee consists of two independent Directors, Cees van Luijk and Jean F.H.P. Mandeville, and one non-independent Director, Robert M. Manning, with Cees van Luijk serving as the chairperson of the audit committee. We expect that by January 2012, all of the members of our audit committee will be independent as defined under and required by Rule 10A-3 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Rule 10A-3”) and the NYSE listed company rules. We also expect that Cees van Luijk will qualify as an “audit committee financial expert,” as that term is defined in Rule 10A-3. The audit committee has direct responsibility for the appointment, compensation, retention and oversight of the work of our independent registered public accounting firm, KPMG Accountants N.V. In addition, approval of the audit committee is required prior to our entering into any related-party transaction. It is also responsible for “whistle-blowing” procedures and certain other compliance matters.
