                       ATOS Wellness names John H Darling
                           new non-executive director
9 May 2008: Wellness and health care company ATOS Wellness Limited (ASX:ATW) has appointed John H Darling
as non-executive director.

With over 33 years experience in international economics, corporate law and as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of
Victoria, John is currently the chairman of the Darling Group – an intellectual property firm specialising in strategic
partnerships, investments, alliances and collaborations worldwide.

For 20 years John has served local governments, chaired the planning committee in Woollahra and was Deputy
Mayor in the late 1980s. He is also the director of VueStar Technologies Pte Ltd, LionStar IP Pte Ltd and Australian
Rainforest Foundation Ltd and has also assisted several charities including St Lukes Hospital Foundation, Totally
Active Kids and Lord Taverners (Australia).

Though not common knowledge, John’s family has been involved in the establishment of the iron and steel, grain
and flour, investment banking and agricultural industries in Australia; in particular his late grandfather Harold founded
BHP Billiton.

Commenting on John’s appointment, founder and managing director of ATOS Wellness Mr Siva Ananda Rajah says
that John’s international, legal and commercial expertise is vital to the ATOS’ international product roll-out.

“As Australia’s only listed wellness company ATOS Wellness is strengthening its team as the company expands its
product offering and number of centres in Asia Pacific,” says Ananda.

“We are privileged to have the support of John. He works regularly in Singapore. His knowledge of the global
business markets is invaluable to our long-term success.”
