1. On 5 August 2012, the financial controller informed you that the board has recently received a letter from the assistant general manager, Mr. Tan. The letter contains a confession: Mr. Tan has been lodging fraudulent expense claims over the past 5 years, amounting to some $40,000. The financial controller's preliminary estimates indicate that this figure is materially correct; however he believes it will take at least another 2 months before the exact figure is known. The police had been informed of the fraud and are searching for Mr. Tan, who appears to have left the country.

2. On 17 August 2012, the financial controller informed you that on the previous day a participant on one of the club's aerobics classes, Ms. Peters, injured herself after slipping on the gym floor. Ms. Peters is the spouse of one of the state's leading barristers. A preliminary letter has already been received from Mr. Peters, stating that Ms. Peters intends to take legal action to recover the costs of medical treatment, plus damages, from the club.

3. On 18 August 2012, the financial controller informed you that a serious fire occurred at one of the club's kitchens during football celebrations. Although covered by insurance, the fire caused extensive damage to the bistro area and the adjacent bar. Both the bistro and bar are expected to remain unserviceable until at least mid-September, resulting in an expected fall in revenue of around 7%.

4. On 23 August 2012, the general manager informed you that on 18 August 2012 the board decided to sell land it was holding as a long term investment. It seemed that a very generous offer was made by an overseas buyer. The contract is due to be signed on 25 August 2012.

5. On 11 August 2012, the board signed a contract for the upgrade of the club's air-conditioning system. The upgrade is necessary to ensure compliance with workers compensation regulations.
