Kitron’s Corporate Governance principles clarify the division of roles between shareholders, the board of directors and corporate management. The principles are also intended to help safeguard the interests of shareholders, employees and other stakeholders, such as customers and suppliers, as well as society at large. The primary intention is to increase predictability and transparency and thereby reduce uncertainties associated with the business.
It is Kitron’s intent to practice good corporate governance in accordance with laws and regulations and the recommendations of Oslo Børs under the ‘comply or explain’ concept. This review has been prepared by the board of Kitron, and it is the board’s intention to comply with the Norwegian Code of Practice for Corporate Governance dated 14 October 2021 (“the Code”). The Code is available at www.nues.no/en/.
