Here without adornment is another paragraph (paragraph 54) from the process memorandum sent by the Independent Committee's legal and accounting advisers to their law firm:
The extent of historical electronic data (e.g. emails) at the Guangzhou office where two of the senior members of Management are located (CHEN Hua and Albert ZHAO) was almost non-existent. There was no backup of the email server (according to Management, the email and file servers were not being backed up at this location). The earliest email retrieved from Ms. Chen and Mr. Zhao’s computers and servers was dated June 10, 2011. It is to be noted that the IC Advisors attended at the aforementioned office on June 13, 2011 for data preservation but access to the company servers and IT staff was denied by Ms. Chen. Subsequently, on June 15, 2011, the IC Advisors were provided access to commence data preservation.
