Company Policies for Corporate Governance
Protecting shareholder interests and rights
Equality in our relationships with all stock holders
Mutual trust and respect to all interested parties
Timely disclosure of information
The highest administrative body of the Company is the General Shareholders Meeting. In the period between meetings, the Board of Directors serves as the general governance of the Company’s operations. The Company’s day-to-day operations are managed by the General Director, a sole executive body overseen by the Board of Directors and General Shareholders Meeting.
The Board of Directors forms Committees for Strategic Planning, Human Resources and Remuneration, and Auditing. The Audit Commission, the Centre for Internal Control and an external audit firm monitor their actions. JSC FPC adheres to the requirements of the legislation of the Russian Federation, including requirements for the disclosure of information, and strives to observe the requirements of Codex of Corporate Conduct, approved by the command of the Federal Commission of Market Security of the Russian Federation on April 4, 2002, as well as the Principles of Corporate Governance of the OECD.
The following changes were made to the corporate governance polices as written in the charter of JSC FPC in 2013:
At JSC FPC a unified system has been created to motivate the management and control bodies of JSC FPC’s subsidiaries and affiliates.
In order to respect the interests of JSC FPC, the Company’s Board of Directors appoints candidates to represent the Company in the management bodies of FPC’s subsidiaries and affiliates. For this purpose, the Company has approved a procedure for the selection of candidates for election to the Boards of Directors of the subsidiaries and affiliates of FPC which provides for the possibility of attracting not only key Company employees but also independent directors to the Boards of Directors.
One of the significant planned changes in FPC’s system of corporate governance, aimed at improving the efficiency of managerial decision-making, is the creation of a joint executive body, the JSC FPC Board. Significant authority for dealing with the most important issues of the Company’s current operations would be delegated to this Board.
