    (6) Information on whether the applicant has engaged in collaborative research and development agreements with other organisations, to the extent material to investors;
    (7) A comprehensive description of each product, the development of which may have a material effect on the future prospects of the applicant;
    (8) The directors' opinion which must state, without requiring a profit forecast, that in their reasonable opinion, the working capital available to the applicant, as at the date of lodgement of the prospectus, is sufficient for the present requirements and for at least 12 months after listing; and
