The Board of Directors of KDM Shipping Public Limited (the “Company") hereby informs about the Company's partial non-compliance with the Code of Best Practice for WSE Listed Companies (“WSE Corporate Governance Rules").
At the beginning it should be underlined that the Company has decided to observe the majority of the WSE Corporate Governance Rules. However, certain principles apply to the Company accordingly, with due observance of Cyprus corporate law and the Company's corporate structure, especially the single board structure as opposed to the two-tier system that the WSE Corporate Governance Rules assume. The Company does not have two separate governing bodies (supervisory board and management board) which are obligatory in Polish joint stock companies. Instead, the Board of Directors of the Company performs both the management and supervisory functions. As a result, the Company applies those principles of the WSE Corporate Governance Rules which refer to relations between supervisory board and management board not directly, but accordingly. In all cases, the Company endeavors to create procedures maintaining the spirit of all rules applied accordingly. Therefore, the Company is of an opinion that it complies with all of the principles of the WSE Corporate Governance Rules that refer to relations between supervisory board and management board or to the functioning of those bodies.
The Board of Directors of the Company informs that the Company does not comply with the following recommendations and best practices of the WSE Corporate Governance Rules:
Recommendation I.9, regarding balanced proportion of men and women in the Management Board and Supervisory Board. Currently, the Company does not comply with this recommendation. However, the Company will try to comply with this recommendation within 12 months period.
