The transactions entered into are in the ordinary course of business, made at arm’s length, on normal commercial terms and on terms not more favorable to the related party than those generally available to the public and are not to the detriment of the minority shareholders.

whichever is the higher,

thus, the Company is required to make an immediate announcement instead of obtaining shareholders' mandate for such Transaction.
