AN EXCLUSIVE PACKAGE FOR OUR DOCTORS

As it is our intention to list the company on the share market before the end of 2019 we are proud to present our

"PLUS 5%" OFFER

You will be awarded shares in the company equalling 5% of your total billings between 1 July 2014 and the time of the listing. To qualify for this offer is simple; you will have to work in one of our practices at the time of the listing.

The 5% benefits will be paid in shares when the company will be listed on the share market and it is our intention to treat these benefits as "deferred service fees" in order to delay the taxing point until the time of listing. Once the listing has been finalised, you will own a parcel of shares in the newly listed company. You may sell these shares or you may decide to keep these shares and earn dividends. In any case you will own a tradable liquid asset at the time of the listing.

A VERY SPECIAL BANKING OFFER

We are delighted to invite our doctors to enjoy the benefits of our special relationship that we developed with the Commonwealth Bank. To give you more insight, you can visit the website www.commbank.com.au/offers/workplace-banking and use our log on code: CBMC .

For our qualifying doctors there are even more amazing banking benefits on offer including home loans of up to 90% LVR with no Mortgage Insurance, personalised service by a dedicated Relationship Manager and much more.

Our success is based on your personal success and we are committed to giving you the best possible outcome for your commitment.
