GENEA LIMITED

SHAREHOLDER COMMUNICATIONS POLICY

1. Introduction

Genea Limited (the Company) places great importance on developing strategies for
communicating effectively with the Companys shareholders and this policy summarises the
methods and forums available for shareholders to enable access to information about the
Company.

2. Quarterly Shareholder Updates

In May 2005, the Company approved the Genea Continuous Disclosure Policy to formally
adopt an ongoing disclosure regime (although by law, the Company is not currently required to
comply with ASIC or ASX disclosure requirements).

As part of the continuous disclosure regime, Shareholder Updates for quarters ending 30
September, 31 December, 31 March are provided to shareholders within a month of quarter
end. The update for the quarter ending 30 June is provided to shareholders within six weeks of
quarter end. These updates provide summary financial information and discussion and analysis
of those results together with an update on the outlook.

Further, in addition to the quarterly Shareholder Updates, any other material information (as
determined by the Board as requiring disclosure) will be provided to shareholders on a timely
basis.

3. Annual Report

Geneas full Annual Report is provided to shareholders 21 days prior to the Annual General
Meeting each year and is also lodged with ASIC.

Also, upon request by shareholders throughout the year, a soft copy of the Annual Report is
available.

The Annual Report contains a summary of the Companys highlights of the previous year,
reports from the Chairman and Managing Director and the financial report for the previous
financial year along with the Companys corporate governance statement and other relevant
information with respect to the Company.

4. Shareholder Meetings

Genea holds its Annual General Meeting (AGM) for shareholders in November each year. All
shareholders are encouraged to attend the AGM to ensure a high level of accountability.
Shareholders have the opportunity to hear directly from the Chairman and Managing Director
on the Companys financial performance and future objectives, and to ask questions on
important issues. There are also normally a number of items that require formal approval by
shareholders, either through ordinary or special resolutions.

Where shareholders cannot attend in person, they are encouraged to appoint a proxy, in order
that they can indicate their approval, or otherwise, of any such proposed resolutions.

When required, the Company will also call Extraordinary General Meetings, in particular, when
proposed changes the Companys constitution requires the approval of shareholders through a
special resolution.

For all shareholder meetings, the Company will prepare and distribute detailed and balanced
explanatory notes to fully inform shareholders of any proposed resolutions or changes to the
Companys constitution they are being asked to approve.

5. Share Trading Windows

In May 2006, the Company approved the Genea Share Trading Policy to set the guidelines
around directors and employees participating in the quarterly Share Trading Windows and
having regard to the insider trading provisions in the Corporations Act 2001. It also set the
trigger dates for the opening of the quarterly Share Trading Windows to occur 6 business days
after the release of the quarterly Shareholder Updates, in order that trading occurs in a fully
informed market.

During the Share Trading Window, the Company acts as an agent of the sellers and buyers, and
the Companys constitution contains detailed provisions on the process which is to be followed.

In February 2010, the Company was granted an Exemption Notice by ASIC, the Corporations
(Genea Ltd) Exemption Notice 2010, which formally approved the process contained in the
Companys constitution as a market. The market for shares in the Company is now governed
by this exemption under Section 791C of the Corporations Act 2001 and the Company is not
subject to all the legislative obligations that apply to operators of other licensed markets.

However, the Company must operate the market for shares in Genea Limited in accordance
with the process set out in Paragraph 8.2 of the Companys constitution and must establish and
maintain adequate arrangements to manage any conflicts of interest that arise in relation to
any activities undertaken by the Company in the operation of the market for shares in Genea
Limited.

In June 2010, the board approved the Genea Conflicts of Interests Policy which outlines the
arrangements in place in the Company to manage any conflicts of interest that may arise in
relation to any activities undertaken by the Company in the operation of the market.

6. Requests for Documents

If any shareholder requires a copy of the Companys constitution or any of the policies
described in this Policy, requests can be made via email to shareholders@genea.com.au.
