Chairman | Chief Executive Presentation

[Slide 1]

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the 26th Annual Shareholders Meeting of Tourism Holdings Limited. My name is Keith Smith. I am the chairman of thl. As we have a quorum and it’s 2:00pm, I am very happy to declare thl’s 2012 Annual Meeting open.

[Slide 2]

I’m joined here on the stage by our non-executive directors Rick Christie, John Bongard, Deepak Gupta, Graeme Wong, and executive director Kay Howe. Kay joined the board at the end of October following the completion of the New Zealand rentals merger. As we discussed at the special meeting in October Kay will become a non-executive director once the integration process is complete. Unfortunately Graeme Bowker could not be with us today due to personal reasons beyond his control.

We’re also joined on stage by our chief executive, Grant Webster, our chief financial officer, Ian Lewington and board secretary, Paul Illingworth. In the audience we also have a number of the executives who I will quickly introduce. Grant Brady, Nicole Edgerton, Quinton Hall, Mike Horne, Kate Meldrum, Andrew Rickett, Sue Sullivan and Daniel Schneider, chief executive officer and president of our USA motorhome operation Road Bear RV Rentals and Sales. Finally, we have representatives from our auditors, PricewaterhouseCoopers and our solicitors Minter Ellison Rudd Watts.

Members of the news media are also here today, we welcome you. But I would remind you this is a shareholder meeting. Grant Webster and I will be happy to talk to you afterwards.

I can confirm that there is a quorum present and that the Notice of Meeting was sent to all shareholders recorded on the register on 30th October 2012, and to other persons entitled to receive that notice.
