Code of Conduct

Quality Board of Directors

Vinda’s Board comprises twelve Directors (5 Executive Directors, 3 Non-Executive Directors and 4 Independent Non-Executive Directors). It formulates overall strategies and policies, ensures the availability of adequate capital and managerial resources to implement the strategies adopted, the adequacy of systems of financial and internal control and the conduct of business in conformity with applicable laws and regulations. The Board members are fully committed to their roles and have always acted in the best interests of the Group and its shareholders at all times. Board meetings are held regularly at approximately quarterly intervals and also held on ad hoc basis as required by business needs. Regular Board meetings and ad hoc Board meetings are attended by Directors in person or through other electronic means of communication. In addition, special Board meetings are convened from time to time for the Board to discuss issues that require the Board’s timely attention. Since the special Board meetings are concerned with the day-to-day management of the Company which often requires prompt decisions, usually only the Executive Directors and senior management attend the meetings.
