Audit Committee
     The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors was established in accordance with requirements of Section 3(a)(58)(A) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Multilateral Instrument 52-110 — Audit Committees. The Audit Committee selects and engages the Company’s independent auditors, reviews the scope of audit engagements, reviews management letters of such auditors and management’s response thereto, approves professional services provided by such auditors, reviews the independence of such auditors, reviews any major accounting changes made or contemplated, considers the range of audit and non-audit fees, reviews the adequacy of the Company’s internal accounting controls and annually reviews its charter and submits any recommended changes to the Board for its consideration. The Audit Committee consists of three members: Thomas R. Brown (Chairman), Robert Molyneux and William Woodward. The Board has determined that each member of the Audit Committee is “independent” and meets the financial literacy requirements of the AMEX listing standards, that each member of the Audit Committee meets the enhanced independence standards established by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and that Mr. Brown qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” as that term is defined in the rules and regulations established by the SEC. The Audit Committee held four meetings in fiscal year 2008.
Shareholder Nominations of Directors
     The Board of Directors performs the functions associated with a nominating committee. The Company’s independent directors make recommendations to the full Board for nominations to fill vacancies on the Board and for selecting the management nominees for the directors to be elected by the Company’s shareholders at each Annual Meeting. The Board believes this process is preferable to a standing nominating committee because it wishes to involve all of its independent directors in the nomination process. The Board of Directors may from time to time consider qualified nominees recommended by shareholders, who may submit recommendations to the Board of Directors through a written notice to the Company’s Corporate Secretary at the principal executive offices of the Company, 7480 Mission Valley Road, Suite 101, San Diego, California within the time frames required by the Company’s bylaws and applicable law. Nominees for director who are recommended by shareholders will be evaluated in the same manner as any other nominee for director.
Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
     Each director, executive officer of the Company, and person who owns more than 10% of a registered class of the Company’s equity securities is required by Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to report to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) his or her transactions in the Company’s securities. Regulations promulgated by the SEC require the Company to disclose in this Management Proxy Circular and Proxy Statement any reporting violations with respect to the 2008 fiscal year, which came to the Company’s attention based on a review of the applicable filings required by the SEC to report such status as an officer or director or such changes in beneficial ownership as submitted to the Company. These statements are based solely on a review of the copies of such reports furnished to the Company by its officers, directors and security holders and a representation that such reports accurately reflect all reportable transactions as holdings. Other than Form 4s for each of Brian Andersen and Kitty Lo for option grants that should have been filed on or before June 11, 2007, which were actually filed on June 14, 2007 and June 15, 2007, respectively, the Company believes that its directors and executive officers, and persons who beneficially own more than 10% of a registered class of its equity securities, have complied with all filing requirements of Section 16(a) for fiscal year 2008 applicable to such persons.
Code of Ethics
     The Company’s Board has adopted a formal mandate outlining its responsibilities. The Directors’ Code of Conduct and a Code of Conduct for the Company’s employees have also been implemented. The mandate and the codes of conduct are available on the Company’s website at www.madcatz.com. The Company intends to satisfy the disclosure requirement under Form 8-K regarding (1) any amendments to its Codes of Conduct, or (2) any waivers under its Codes of Conduct relating to the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer by posting such information on our website at www.madcatz.com.

Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence.
Related Party Transactions
     From April 1, 2006 to the present, there have been no (and there are no currently proposed) transactions in which the amount involved exceeded $120,000 to which the Company or any of its subsidiaries was (or is to be) a participant and in which any executive officer, director, nominee for director, 5% beneficial owner of the Company’s Common Stock or member of the immediate family of any of the foregoing persons had (or will have) a direct or indirect material interest. Geofrey Myers, a former director of the Company, was a partner of Lang Michener LLP, a law firm we retained to perform certain legal services in fiscal years 2007 and 2008. We paid Lang Michener LLP $56,753 for legal services in fiscal year 2007 and $181,600 in fiscal year 2008. These fees did not exceed 5% of Lang Michener LLP’s total revenues in either year.
Director Independence
     The Company’s Board of Directors consists of five members. Four of the Company’s directors are independent under the requirements set forth in the American Stock Exchange (“AMEX”) listing rules and National Instrument 58-101 — Corporate Governance. For a director to be considered independent, the Board of Directors must determine that the director does not have a material relationship with the listed company that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment. The Board of Directors has established guidelines to assist it in determining director independence, which conform to the independence requirements of the AMEX listing rules and National Instrument 58-101 — Corporate Governance. In addition to applying these independence guidelines, the Board of Directors considers all relevant facts and circumstances in making an independence determination, and not merely from the standpoint of the director, but also from that of persons or organizations with which the director has an affiliation. The Board of Directors has determined that Messrs. Brown, De Ruig, Molyneux and Woodward are independent.

Audit Committee Policy Regarding Pre-Approval of Audit and Permissible Non-Audit Services of the Company’s Independent Auditors
     The Company’s Audit Committee has established a policy that all audit and permissible non-audit services provided by the independent auditors will be pre-approved by the Audit Committee. These services may include audit services, audit-related services, tax services and other services. The Audit Committee considers whether the provision of each non-audit service is compatible with maintaining the independence of the Company’s auditors. Pre-approval is detailed as to the particular service or category of services and is generally subject to a specific budget. The independent auditors and management are required to periodically report to the Audit Committee regarding the extent of services provided by the independent auditors in accordance with this pre-approval, and the fees for the services performed to date.
