NOTE

The information given in this report has been compiled from published sources and interpreted
from fieldwork based on informed opinions. Whilst every care has been taken in the preparation
of the report, there may have been some errors in the information obtained. Although it is
impossible to verify every single detail by cross checking, we believe the general picture
provided is reasonably accurate and comprehensive.
Many IAL reports contain an overview of selected company financial information and
capabilities based on published sources where available. Although the companies represented
are believed to be the major suppliers the profiles are meant to be indicative rather than
definitive.

our service to clients. In pursuit of these aims, we shall be pleased to consider all requests for
regular or periodic updating of all or any part of the information contained in this report, or for

We are, of course, always happy to discuss with any subscriber the possibility of undertaking
further work, whether arising out of this report or in different business areas.
