Annex III
Working Plan on Internal Control Implementation
 
1. Executive summary
 
In recent years the Chinese government has put increased emphasis on the importance of internal control in big listed companies. A series of regulations on internal control was announced by various government authorities. As a major listed company, Huaxin is already chosen as a pilot to implement Chinese internal control system (C-SOX) in 2011.
 
One of the approaches to meet the requirements of C-SOX we assessed was to leverage the experience of its biggest shareholder (Holcim), as Holcim has already implemented an internal control system (Holcim ICS) based on Swiss regulatory requirements in all its major subsidiaries. However, the result of a gap analysis between C-SOX and the Holcim ICS showed that this is not possible. The main reason for this is the significantly wider scope of C-SOX. Just extending Holcim ICS is also not an option due to time and resource constraints. Holcim ICS even in its unextended form would take considerably longer to implement and it would not be possible to cover 50% of the Huaxin business as required by CRSC.
 
It is therefore recommended to treat the C-SOX and Holcim ICS implementations as separate projects. It is also suggested that external consultants should be used in developing a local methodology to meet local legal requirements. Management will then work with external consultants to prepare a detailed implementation schedule with related cost estimation for the Audit Committee approval in April. With the tentative kick-off of the C-SOX project in May, we are confident that the company will meet Chinese regulatory requirements within this year.
 
2. Background
 
2.1 Requirements from Chinese regulatory authorities
 
The Chinese government has been stepping up its effort to strengthen internal control in big enterprises in recent years. On May 22, 2008, the Ministry of Finance, in conjunction with the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), General Audit Administration, China Banking Regulatory Commission and China Insurance Regulatory Commission, issued the “Basic standard of Enterprise Internal Control”, requiring listed companies to implement this standard as of July 1, 2009, including the completion of self-assessment of the effectiveness of internal control and the publication of such report on an annual basis.
 
Subsequent to this legislature, on April 15, 2010, the same five ministries issued a set of three detail guidelines on internal control, including: 1) “The Application Guidelines for Enterprise Internal Control” (a total of 18 parts, covering all aspects of company operation from organization to strategy, from procurement to sales); 2) “Enterprise Internal Control Assessment Guideline”; and 3) “Enterprise Internal Control Audit Guideline”. For easy reference we will use the term C-SOX to describe this set of legislations in this paper.
 
C-SOX requires listed companies on the main board of Shanghai Stock Exchange to implement internal control based on these guidelines as of Jan. 1, 2012, including completion of a self-assessment report of the effectiveness of internal control and publication of this report on an annual basis. Under these guidelines, companies must engage external auditors (with securities business qualification) to perform independent audit on the effectiveness of internal control for financial reporting purpose.
 
Huaxin, being an A and B share listed company in the Shanghai Stock Exchange, will need to comply with C-SOX in 2012. However, as a leading company in Hubei province, Huaxin was already chosen as a pilot company in January 2011 to implement C-SOX within this year. In total, 216 listed companies (including 3 in Hubei Province) have been selected as pilot sites for internal control implementation in 2011.
 
On Feb. 14, 2011, CSRC issued the “Circular on the Proper Implementation of Internal Control in Pilot Companies”, requiring pilot companies to implement an internal control system, conduct self-assessments on internal control and engage external auditors to verify this self-assessment on over 50% of their subsidiaries based on three main indicators (total assets, net sales and net profit). That is, the total assets, net sales and net profit of the chosen subsidiaries of the pilot company must exceed 50% of the entity in each category per consolidated financial statements at 2010 year-end. To Huaxin, this means a total of close to 20 cement plants will be included in the scope for the C-SOX implementation in 2011.
 
2.2 Company’s need to strengthen internal control
 
Huaxin has been expanding very rapidly in recent years. With the growth of business operation, management talent and expertise are to a certain extent diluted. Management has become increasingly aware that the potential risk of ineffective internal control is real. With an improvement of internal control, risks related to all aspects of company operation will be lower, financial information will be more reliable and the company could continue to grow with a firm footing.
 
2.3 Organizational set-up
 
Due to both legal and internal needs, Huaxin has mandated one of its Executive Committee (EXCO) members to be in charge of the internal control implementation. This EXCO member will report both to the CEO and the Audit Committee as outlined in the below graph. Under this EXCO member, a new department has been set up in January to lead the implementation of internal control in the company.

Remuneration and Appraisal Committee
Nomination Committee
 
Strategy Committee
 
Audit Committee
CEO
 
 
 
EXCO member
Internal Control Department
BOD
 
EXCO

The internal control department will be in charge of all aspects of the implementation of internal control in the company, including setting up project team, getting the right training and doing the necessary change management.

It is the intention of the company that through this new department and the support of all the management staff, the company will meet C-SOX requirements by the end of 2011.
 
3. Proposed next steps and tentative time-line
 
In view of the lack of experience internally and the tight implementation deadline, it is proposed that the company could use external consultant to develop a suitable methodology to meet C-SOX requirements. The chosen consultant can work with Huaxin management and Holcim expert to develop a suitable methodology, may be even borrowing some of the good practice of Holcim ICS. Tentative time-line for the rest of the year will be as follow:
 
Timing
Main Tasks
Mar, 2011
Approval of C-SOX implementation proposal
Apr, 2011
Selection of external consultant; preparation of detailed schedule and cost estimation
May to Aug, 2011
Project kick off; methodology development and testing in pilot site
Sep to Oct, 2011
Roll out template to other in-scope plants
Nov to Dec, 2011
Control testing and corrective actions
Jan to Mar, 2012
Self assessment report and external audit
 
The above time-line is similar to a recent implementation project of one the biggest cement companies in China. This company has started the C-SOX project in the middle of last year, and now they are in the roll-out phase. Therefore, we are confident that this could also be achieved in Huaxin.
 
Please see Appendix 1 for an outline of the basic principles governing the public tender process in the selection of external consultant. The Internal Control Department will follow such principles in the tender process and submit a final proposal to the CEO and Audit Committee for approval. After the selection of an audit firm as external consultant, management will work with them to develop a more detailed implementation schedule with related cost estimation for the Audit Committee approval in April.
 
In term of the implementation of Holcim ICS, it is recommended that we treat this as a separate project. The company has to decide the implementation of Holcim ICS based on the benefits it will bring. It is also suggested that a detailed cost and benefit analysis of such implementation should be performed with the help of Holcim experts. This analysis could then form the basis of management decision.
 
4. Conclusion
 
We are confident that the company will meet Chinese regulatory requirements by leveraging the experience of external consultants and best practice from Holcim. We therefore recommend the Board of Directors of the Company to approve our proposal as described in this paper.
 
 
 
Annex IV
 
Proposal in Respect of Empowering the Management of the Company to Purchase Financial Products of Banks
 
Against the background of continuous expansion and enhanced administration, the Company still owns some short-term idle funds besides funds ensured for regular production, operation and development.  In order to make full use of these idle funds, improve capital efficiency and capital income, the Management hereby proposes the Board to approve Huaxin Cement Co., Ltd. and its subsidiaries to use their own idle funds to purchase financial products of banks within the limit of 200 million Yuan adhering to the precondition of ensuring capital liquidity and safety of the Company.  These financial products should guarantee capital with a term of no more than 7 days.
